Marion and I continued to date on and off. We would date for awhile and then get into a fight and not speak. Our relationship continued that way throughout the spring.
Marion had a sister, Mary, who I was friendly with, so I would see Marion when I visited Mary. Mary and I would hang out together and sooner or later I would hear from Mary what was going on with Marion. The majority of the time, Marion would be angry with me, usually because I wasn't reacting the way he wanted me to react when we dated.
Marion asked me out again and I decided to give our relationship another chance. Marion picked me up and we drove to Shelby Forrest, for a night time picnic. Marion had packed food, a blanket and alcohol for this picnic.
The date didn't go well. We never made it out of Marion's truck. While we ate the fried chicken Marion had brought, Marion drank too much alcohol. Then came the "romance". Marion was all over me like an octopus. I was fighting him off, trying to push him away, but the more I fought, the more aggressive he became. I would tell him "no", he would tell me he knew I wanted it. We wrestled, I tried to push him away. He told me I was a "wildcat". Marion kept pushing the limits, and finally, I slapped Marion across his face. Marion was furious with me but it snapped him back into reality. I was fortunate that Marion was not a rapist.
We drove back to Munford in silence. Marion took me home and after I got out of his truck, he drove off. We were finally through. The relationship was finally over.
