Dustin had been training to join the Red Socks like Lola. He was on all the same baseball teams as her since T-Ball and they were pretty friendly... though Lola refused to call him her friend, she called him a rival. They were friends for the most part though. They played baseball together and practiced together and skipped school to practice together and got in trouble together.
When Dustin was 16 he was "discovered" and ended up going to New York City to become a male model. In the time he was gone, Trina had dated Kiyoshi, and Kiyoshi had taken advantage of Trina and emotionally scarred her for life. (Kiyoshi if you didn't know, was designed as Trina's BF when she was 13/14 and ended quickly)
After that, Trina pretty much avoided men and cats all together. It took her a few years to warm up to her father enough to comfortably live around him and be back to normal.
By the time Dustin came back, Trina was 15 now and Dustin was 19. He as surprised when he saw how Trina had become so angry all the time and was distant from everyone, since when she was younger she used to follow him and Lola around and never stop talking.
Dustin found out want happened and also found out that Trina was thinking about committing suicide. When he realized how alone she had been while he was gone and Lola was busy all the time with school and later with work, Trina didn't really have anyone. He ended up moving back to Boston to take care of her and by her 16th Birthday she had been somewhat back to herself and happy.
He was the first male outside her family she could be alone with and feel fine, and he helped her get over her fear of males over the years. He mostly just hangs around Trina now to protect her if anything bad happens again. He had been falling for her hard for awhile and they made their relationship official right before she turned 17.
They spent all their time together since they started dating, he had even ended up sleeping over the day the started dating, though he had to sleep in the guest room.
Once Trina turned 18 they got a house together with the money she had earned from her singing career. They have been living together ever since.
On May 20th 2016, Dustin Proposed to Trina and she said yes.
Let the Happily Ever After Begin!
