See Part 1 for disclaimers.

Randy could feel the gentle stroking across her lower stomach. She kept her eyes closed and silently enjoyed the soft caresses. Randy knew that Brittany was trying to wake her up to get the information on how Margie had altered her plans. Randy decided to wait and see what the little minx was up to knowing she would enjoy every minute of it.

Brittany smiled at her stubborn love knowing full well that the tall woman was awake she could tell by the change in her breathing. She started to gently kiss the perfect stomach then she slid her tongue into the bellybutton causing the tall woman to sit straight up in pure reaction to the sensation. Brittany pulled away and looked into aroused blue eyes that captured her own. Randy pulled her into her arms kissing her with a wild abandon that almost made Brittany forget her plan. When they finally pulled back from the passionate kiss she felt strong hand caress her skin as she said in a raspy voice, “That didn't go as expected.”
The hand slowly moved up her back to caress her neck and then her cheek then she found herself in the tall woman's lap as Randy purred into her ear, “Oh?”

Brittany swallowed leaning into the touches and returning them with soft caresses of her own, her eyes fully aroused as she said, “I wanted to slowly torture you awake so I could get the info on Margie out of you.”

Randy's cheek was against Brittany's and she was rubbing them softly together as she said, “My love I told you…”

“I know, I…I just thought your stomach looked delectable and I couldn't resist tasting it.”

Randy chuckled as she nibbled a sweet ear and asked, “How did it taste?”

“What…Oh…um delicious…” Not fully knowing what she was saying because Randy was leading her into far more interesting waters as she traveled down her throat to parts south.

“Mmm., So do you…”Randy replied as she was about to taste her way to heaven.

Brittany was now snuggled into long loving arms. She looked up with a contented smile and happily shining eyes. Randy smiled brightly as she kissed her little nose. “God, I love it when your happy and pleased by me. It makes me feel so complete.”

“Well since I feel that way all the time you must be positively blissful,” Brittany purred back.

“Yep,” Said Randy as she kissed the sweet mouth and she put her fingers through the beautiful blonde hair.

“So I do believe that now is the time to tell me.” Stated Brittany as she kissed the tall woman's neck.

Randy gently pulled back and looked into disappointed green eyes replying with a smirk, “Your every wish is my command.” She pulled the smaller woman into her lap and brought her as close as possible. “Comfy?”

“Oh yeah, very.” Said Brittany kissing Randy on the cheek.

“Good,” She took a deep breath and leaned her weight against the headboard. “Ok, It seems that Margie went from tying her up and telling her it's a part of a sex game to tying her up naked and creating the illusion that they were going to …well they were about to….um…well…”

“Do S and M?” Asked Brittany in tiny chirpy voice.

Randy nodded, “I almost fainted when I saw her tied up prone and naked. I think I amused Margie. Seeing how uncomfortable I was made her eyes light up. I mean I'm suppose to be this tough broad and I couldn't bring myself to look at this woman I loathe so much. I guess what she didn't understand was that I wanted to break every bone in her unconscience body. Instead I checked the knots carefully remembering the promise I made to you. After I made sure the bitch was secure I tried to convince Margie to let me stay. She told me I had obligations and that I should go home. She was right I did, You are the sum total of my obligations.”

Randy was upset because she was so close to killing Jessica that she had to use her promise to Brittany as a mantra. She had tears flowing down her cheeks as she held the woman she loved closer trying to collect herself and go on with what happened. Brittany looked up into the teary eyes and she pulled sad lips to her own and kissed Randy tenderly. When they pulled apart they looked deeply into each other's eyes and Randy said, “Brit I love you more then life itself.”


Randy dried the tears on her cheeks with the back of her hand as she cleared her throat and quietly said, “Brit, I am really scared about Jessica. I want to protect you so much…I want to… I need to…”

“Shhh, Randy I know you want to protect me I think we should let Margie take care of this because it's her job.”

Randy nodded and kissed Brittany on the top of her head saying quietly, “Your right of course, I know that it is her job. I'm just used to taking care of my own problems. I've never had anyone to help me before. I'm grateful she is helping us.” She kissed Brittany deeply on the soft sweet lips when they parted she put her hands on each warm cheek and said; “You make me feel so loved. So very soft. So incredibly special. It's truly amazing.”

“Ditto,” Said Brittany with a huge smile as she kissed Randy passionately her hands wandering down to Randy's aching breasts. She gently caressed the soft warm skin causing the tall woman to moan and arch under her in ecstasy. Brittany kissed her way down till she reached the now erect breasts causing Randy to let go of Brittany and grab the edge of the bed to keep from throwing the beautiful woman to the floor from her own erotic reaction to gentle suckling. Brittany continued fully delve into the passion till they were both beyond thought of anything till ecstasy took them both over the edge.

Margie woke up in the comfortable little nest she had made on the couch in the living room of Jessica's apartment. She sat up and shook her head at how easily she had gotten the strange girl to confess what she had been doing to her friends. She broke down so easily it was like she wanted to talk someone. Ever hear of therapist? She thought to herself with a smirk as she got out of bed and stretch out the kinks in her body. Then she walked to the guest bathroom and began washed up thinking about last night.

After a couple of flicks of the whip over Jessica's head she started to scream, “Please, Please Don't hit me!!! I…I want someone to love me….I need her…I want her…I can't take….Oh God, She hates me…”

Margie walked over to her putting the whip out of reach. She gently touched her arm. “Jessica, Why do chase after someone who doesn't want you? Why have you put her picture all over that room by the bathroom? If she doesn't like you then find someone who does…”

“No! She loves me…She just doesn't know it. She can't feel it because of what she did in the stupid army…”

“Hon, She doesn't love you because your not her soul mate. She found her soul mate so why don't you find yours?”


“Yes, It is time to let go of this woman. Find someone who can really love you.”


“Just let go and open your heart. You can't find the right person if your going after the wrong one. You certainly can't find someone to love if your full of hate.”

Margie looked in the mirror and shook her head at how the poor girl who had fallen apart after that. Jessica had sobbed and sobbed in her arms till she fell asleep. She untied her covered her with a blanket and then went down the hall to change into some sweats that she had in her bag. She cleaned most of the apartment till she couldn't do another thing and then made her bed on the couch and crashed.

She walked to Jessica's room to find her just waking up. She looked at Margie surprised that she was still there.

“Um, Hi.”

Margie tilted her head and smiled gently saying, “Hi.”

“Do you think you could be…well…my…um…”Jessica stuttered trying to get what she wanted out but afraid to at the same time.

Margie shook her head no, “No, I'm afraid it isn't me.”

“Bbbuttt???” Jessica's bottom lip trembled she looked heart broken.

“Jessica, There is someone out there for you. You can't make someone love you. You need to be a loving person and someone will love you back.”

“I don't know how to do that.” Jessica said crying.

Margie went against her own sense of logic and took the crying woman in her arms and hugged her. “Shhh, You can do that. Stop worrying about looks or your idea of who is right for you and just maybe you will meet the right person. You need to be yourself and not try to be this tough mean bitch. You have a heart Jessica, find it and then the person who is your soul mate will come to you.”

Randy was working in the motorcycle shop she had just finished reconstructing a Harley. She was deeply into the Zen of motorcycle repair as she stood up and smiled brightly at her handy work. She put her greasy hands on her hips and tilted her head as she studied it saying, “Beautiful.”

“More beautiful then I am?” asked the quiet voice from behind her.

Randy turned and lifted an amused eyebrow, “No, You are the most beautiful person in the whole universe. This machine is the most beautiful mechanical entity on the planet.”

Brittany shook her head and laughed, “You just saved yourself but barely by an inch.”

Randy calmly started toward her with her hands outstretched toward the smaller woman's clean skin and an evil gleam twinkling in those pretty blue eyes, “Come here my love, I will show you just how beautiful you are.”

Margie found her two friends squealing and laughing chasing each other around the garage. Randy jumped over a rack of tires and grabbed Brittany around the waist pulling the smaller woman into her arms then she smeared the grease on her hands onto Brittany's face. The small blonde was screeching and laughing as she wiggled to get away.

“Excuse me children,” Said Margie with huge smile on her face.

Two greasy faces looked at their friend laughing. “Hi,” They said simultaneously laughing till they fell down to the floor of the garage.

Margie shook her head in amusement, “Hi right back at you.”

Randy finally caught her breath and asked, “So?”

“She won't bother you ever again.”

Randy's smile brightened, “So she's in jail? Good…”

“Um, not exactly…”

Brittany and Randy suddenly became serious and stood up in shock. Randy walked over to the policewoman trying to remain calm, “Then what exactly did you do, Margie?”

“Well she had an epiphany…”

Randy's face suddenly became very red with anger, her eyes narrowed and the blue cooled to become icy glaciers; “How the hell does a crazy woman have a God damn epiphany?”

Margie sat down on a motorcycle and said quietly, “She broke down in my arms and I…well I convinced her to change…”

“How?” Interrupted Brittany who was standing beside Randy trying to calm her down.

“I like her. I think under all that weird stuff is a very wounded woman. She needed friendship and guidance. We talked all morning and I convinced her that you are not an option and that she needs to stop being a psycho and to show that she has a heart to…”

“A heart?!” Randy was so angry that her hands were bleeding from her nails.

“Randy, She does have a heart. She just had it broken so many times that she has become obsessive over someone she thought she could love. She decided that was you because you were nice to her. Then you turned her down and she felt like she was condemned to be alone forever. I took some time and convinced her that there was hope…”

“How did you do that?” Brittany had gently gotten Randy away from Margie and they were now cuddled together on the hood of Randy's car.

“Never mind how I did it. Just believe me it is done. She will not be bothering you anymore. I will keep a close eye on her but you are both out of danger.”

Randy's eyebrows shot up under her bangs, “Margie, I really can't believe she will all of the sudden stop this so damn easily. I'm scared…”
“I understand your doubt but I will keep an eye on her. I will monitor to make sure she leaves you alone. She is trying Randy. She quit her job at the publishing company and she will find a new job so she won't even see you any more and…”

“Margie, I really like and respect you…but are you out of your mind?!?” She gently disengaged herself from Brittany's arms and jumped off the car. She started to pace in front of the policewoman trying to calm down.

Brittany watched Randy then glanced at Margie who looked like she was about to break down, “Margie, What's going on?”

Margie's lips trembled she was so unprepared for the angry reaction, “I think I…she really needs…I'm…I….” She got up and ran to the bathroom.

Randy walked over to Brittany she was shaking because she was so angry, “I think she has flipped out!”

“Shhh,” Said Brittany getting up and putting her arms around the angry woman bringing her close to her as she could. Randy's arms went automatically around Brittany and she put her head on top of the smaller woman's.

“What are we going to do?” Randy asked quietly.

“We need to calm Margie down and find out exactly what happened. Then we will know where to go from there but first I think we need to clean up. I really want to get out of these filthy clothes do you have anything I can borrow?”

Randy's head nodded against her own and she answered quietly, “Yes, I have an extra T-shirt that should make a perfect dress on you.”

Brittany pulled back and looked up into a slightly smiling face she burst into giggles gently slapping her in the stomach, “Gee thanks. Come on sexy lets shower and change. Margie should be calmed down by the time we get out of the locker room,” She said leading the tall woman toward the locker room, Randy followed shaking her head with an amused expression on her face.

    ***   ***     ***   ***

Margie was sitting on the hood of Randy's car when the two women came out of the locker room. Margie's eyes were very red but she was now calm. The girls walked over toward her Brittany in the lead; She went to the distraught woman and hugged her sympathetically. Randy hung back and let Brittany handle this first part of their plan.

“Margie I really care about you. You are my friend but I must admit I am worried about what you said earlier. I don't understand what you mean that Jessica is just going to stop. Its been almost a whole year of this obsessing how does someone just stop that?”

Randy quietly observed their conversation leaning against her newly finished Harley. They had discussed how they would handle Margie while they cleaned up and decided that this was the best course of action. Randy smiled inwardly and thought, She is so damn good at handling people. She is a wonder, As the smaller woman calmed and charmed the policewoman at the same time.

Margie pulled back and looked into understanding green eyes as she swallowed and tried to pull her thoughts together. “What she told me was that she was sad and desperate. She couldn't understand how Randy who was her ideal could reject her like that. She was so angry that she twisted her need for Randy into an obsession. I convinced her how wrong she was and that she would never meet her true soul mate if she were full of hate. After we talked for a while she agreed to go to rehab and then a friend of mine who is a therapist. Once she is through with all her counseling she should forget about Randy and concentrate on her own life.” She pulled away and looked at the tall quiet woman saying, “I'm sorry Randy, I guess I should have explained all that. I wasn't expecting you to get so angry before I finished telling you what I planned and I'm really tired and…”

“Shhh, No I'm sorry it's my fault.” Said Randy walking toward the policewoman with a sheepish look. She stuck her hand out asked, “Forgive me?”

Margie's eyes met Randy's blue eyes and she stared into them for a moment then nodded grasping the offered hand and shaking it. It was over.

  ****   ***     ***     ****

Randy and Brittany were home sitting on the back patio swing staring up at the stars. Randy had been very quiet all day and Brittany had allowed her space but now decided to try to get her moody love to open up to her.


“Mmm?” Randy's arms tightened around Brittany's waist, the smaller woman was sitting in the taller one's lap. She enjoyed the loving squeeze but she continued undaunted.

“Are you ok?”

“Sure…Um, I guess so…I…Brit am I an unfeeling bitch?”

“Of course not!” She looked up into upset blue eyes surprised by the question.

“Then why do I always react with anger and you always react with compassion?”

“Because you worry about me and that's the way your use to reacting when someone you care about is in danger. You are a trained warrior yet you have changed from destroying life to preserving it. Your remarkable and a good person and I love you.” She kissed the cheek next to her and continued, “I don't have all that training to react to, I just see a problem and I try to fix it. We have the same wish for a better world and to keep each other safe. I think that's pretty damn good don't you?”

Randy shook her head in wonder then leaned down to kiss the sweet lips she loved so much. “I love you too more then anything and most of what you said was true but that's not why I got so mad at Margie.”

Brittany tilted her head to the side and asked, “Why did you?”

Randy took a deep breath and leaned back into the swing, “Yes I did feel protective of you. That is always my main concern but I was also feeling betrayed by Margie. She was suppose to get her to confess and then arrest her and keep her far away from you. When she said she let her go all I could think of was that she was on the loose still and could hurt you. I felt like Margie let us down. I guess I should have known that she wouldn't have let Jessica hurt you but I…”

“Oh Sweetie, How could you know that? Oh my God, I never even thought of that. I see exactly why you were so mad at her. If I thought of all that I would have been mad as hell too.”

Randy smiled and gently tucked some blonde hair behind a pretty little ear, “No, you wouldn't have because you are so damn smart and considerate. You would of let Margie have a chance to explain the rest before flying off the handle. I get so mad so easily its like I said I'm just a bitch…”

“No, you are not Randy. You care. You reacted that way because you were worried about our safety. That's good and I'd expect nothing less from you. You are the sweetest and most loving person I have ever known and I love you so…”She never finished because her lips were captured by Randy's in a searing kiss. They explored each other's mouths till they ran out of air and then Randy said quietly, “I guess I should just be pleased to have a happy ending, huh?”

Brittany nodded and saying “Yes” as she slid out of the taller woman's lap and grasped a hand leading the tall woman toward the door of the house.

“Come on love, I want to show you what I did to the bathroom.”

“Are we going to initiate it?”


“Brit my love I will follow you anywhere but for a treat like that I do not need any prompting.” She said as she picked up the smaller woman and ran up toward the bathroom to see what her love had in mind and their future.
