There were a lot of things that happened in that van during the time I was held there. I told you that he raped me... repeatedly, but it wasn't all... vaginally."
"Sometimes he would handcuff me... face down... he would put a couple of old pillows under my hips... then he would... then he did.... things to me." Jenny continued with her story, and the more she spoke the more easily the words flowed. She began to describe in great detail some of the things that were done, and how she had been degraded and abused. She snuggled up to Scott's chest while she spoke, and he held her tightly with both arms to give her an increased sense of security and safety. He could feel her tears landing on his chest as she spoke, and for most of the time that she recited her litany of depraved treatment, his own tears flowed gently down his cheeks.
She gave him a complete, sequential and detailed description of everything that went on from the time she was grabbed on the street until her miracle escape over 48 hours later. She said that there would always be the possibility that some of her memories had been repressed too deeply, and according to Dr. Burns they might never resurface. She said she didn't think there was anything that she hadn't eventually recalled, and she spilled the details out in a steady torrent.
Neither of them kept track of the time it took, but eventually she finally was able to say, "And that's my whole story. I've told you everything, even the things I tried my best to never think about." I know that it wasn't that long ago that I wouldn't have been able to even contemplate telling anyone this, but you have been such a help to me in getting to the place where I am now. 
Scott continued to hold her, unwilling to say anything until he got his emotions in check. Jenny continued, "I feel like a great weight has been lifted off of my back. Thank you so much for being such a good listener, and such a patient man." It was time now for Scott to speak, and he soon joined in with, "I know it took an awful lot of courage for you to tell me all of this, but I really think you're going to be able to look back on this as the day you started a whole new life. I know that's the way I feel. The physical part of our relationship can wait until the time is right. I'm sure we'll both know when that time arrives."
