Note to the readers: This Fan Fic is a sequel to "Second Chances" the other two Jenny/Leo story about Leo's recovery are not part of the saga. :) Now on with part 2.

"Leo…Leo"

"What?"

"Have you heard anything I've said?" The President asked.

"Yes Sir."

"What did I just say?"

"To be honest sir, I really haven't been paying attention."

"I've noticed." Jed replied as he encouraged his friend to talk. Leo took note of the look and gave in.

"Jed."

Now the President knew that something was bothering Leo. He rarely called him by his first name and now he just had. "What's on your mind, Leo?"

Leo buried his head in his hands, took a deep breathe and then looked up at his friend with concern written on his face. "Jenny." He replied softly.

"Jenny?" Jed asked again looking at his friend. Jed was under the impression that everything was going well between them the second time around.

Leo continued with the same look on his face. "She's changed Jed. She isn't talking to me. We used to have such an open relationship, we would talk to each other about anything. Now frankly she is scaring me. She is distant. "

"Maybe she is just getting used to be back together?" Jed suggested trying to reassure his friend.

"No it's different. Remember when I was using, how introverted I was, how withdrawn? That is how she has been acting lately."

Jed looked at his friend in shock. Leo are you telling me that you think Jenny has a drug problem?"

"Honestly, I have been afraid to say it, but there is something going on with her." Leo got up out of the chair and began to pace around the room. "She has been on prescription pain killers, so it's possible. I just don't want to believe it." Leo stopped pacing and looked back at Jed, confusion and pain written all over his face. "What should I do? I don't want to drive her away not if she is going through what I think she is. She needs my help I won't let her do it alone. I want to be there. I need to help."

"Talk to her, Leo."

"She won't listen."

"Then you have to make her listen. Leo you have been through this before on this other side you know how she feels. You love her. I know you do. She may need help but she may not want it or she may want help and is just to embarrassed to ask."

Leo smiled at his friend and walked quickly to his door "Excuse me sir. I have someone I need to talk to." Jed nodded as Leo walked out of his office and out of the West Wing.
