Chapter Text

Wednesday the 4th august is a date that Bernie and serena will never forget,for that was the day they met for the first time Bernie had graduated from Birmingham university and serena had graduated from leeds university.
they had both applied to work at holby city hospital as it was also a training hospital,so they would also gain valuable experience in hoping to become the best that they could be.
Their first rotation was on the womens surgical ward and all the junior doctors were asked to team up with someone else ,serena made a bee line to Bernie,they just worked so well
together,they seemed to know what the other one was thinking ,making diagnosis between themselves and they did not seem to be like junior doctors as everyone commented on their extensive knowledge.
5pm,their first day as junior doctors had just finished,bernie asked serena if she would like to go for a drink at albies bar serena agreed.
At the bar Bernie ordered 2 large glasses of shiraz,serenas favourite drink 3 glasses of shiraz later ,serena asked Bernie if she would like to go for something to eat,so then they called a taxi and arrived at serenas flat,before she knew where she was serena had got Bernie up against the hall wall and kissing her like her life depened on it,then Bernie put her hand up serenas blouse put her hand inside serenas bar and played with her breasts ,sucking her nipples as well as playing with them.
Serena then started to undress Bernie and Bernie then repaid the favour by undressing serena still kissing each other ,then serena told Bernie to get on the bed to which Bernie did ,before she knew it serena had her hand inside her soaking wet pussy she inserted 2 fingers and started to thrust her fingers in and out of Bernie Bernie was moaning with pleasure,serena had never made a woman cum as hard as what Bernie was about to do.
Bernie gushed her juices all over serenas hand,to which serena licked off her hand,she then looked at Bernie lying on the bed with her legs wide open,oh dear said serena I appear to have made a mess of you,so I suppose I had better clean it up.
Without a second glance to Bernie she started to lick her clit and thrusted her tongue in and out of Bernie,she then slowly brought her head back up kissing her stomach and sucking on bernies tits and again she inserted 2 fingers inside Bernie,hoping to make her gush again thrusting faster than before,bernie screaming for serena to hurry up as she was so close to cuming,
Bernie then flicked serena on to her back,right serena now your turn.
Bernie started just by kissing her long neck,working her way down slowly,she stopped kissing serena for a minute,just to marvel at the size of serenas chest,i love big tits Bernie said,serena said glad I could oblige you with mine then,to which Bernie started to suck them and play with her nipples Bernie then carried on kissing the rest of serenas body.
She run her index finger the length of serenas very wet pussy,to which Bernie said I love a really wet pussy with that she inserted 3 fingers inside serena and started to thrust in and out serena moaning with pleasure just like Bernie had done earlier serena gushed over bernies hand to which Bernie licked serenas cum of her hand.
She then got further down the bed lifted serenas legs up and started to lick her very wet pussy.
When Bernie had finished licking serenas pussy,she climbed back up the bed and started to kiss serena,again she inserted 3 fingers back inside serena thrusting harder and faster than she had ever doneserena started to moan please Bernie I am so fucking close to cumming Bernie said ok then she inserted another finger inside serena, put 4 fingers inside me serena and we will cum together,serena did as she was told thrusting her fingers so hard in and out of Bernie.
Fucking hell serena that was the most amazing thing I have ever experienced in my life with that they fell asleep arms wrapped around each other.

They woke up at 4.30am Bernie said to serena last night was fucking amazing shall we go again to which serena said I thought you would never ask,bernie started to kiss her all over again she made her way down to serenas wet pussy,this time she used her tongue to see her wet folds and her splendid clit,she started to lick her clit serena put her hand on bernies head do not stop until I tell you Bernie looked up and said I will not get up until I have licked every fucking inch of your very wet pussy,good girl you certainly know how to please me
It will always be a pleasure to please you serena
6.00am they knew that they had to get to the hospital as their shift started at 8.00am serena went in the shower closely followed by Bernie,she soon had serena up against the wall in the shower room 4 fingers thrusting in and out of serena fuck,bernie I really am so fucking close to cumming harder and faster Bernie please she went as fast as she could serena then let out a moan thank you Bernie I have never cum that hard and fast before,my pleasure said Bernie,with a wicked glint in her eye.
They did their shift at the hospital,bernie asked serena if she would like to go to albies for a quick drink and something to eat,yes please said serena then I need to go back to my flat
to pick up a couple of things ok said Bernie,once they had finished their meal Bernie drove serena back to her flat,bernie waited in her car,20 minutes later serena appeared with an overnight bag and a small hand held one.
Bernie was confused why 2 bags serena Bernie asked one has my clothes in this one pointing to the smaller one,has some of my little friends in it,little friends said Bernie I will show you when we get to your place Bernie.
The drive to bernies flat took under 20 minutes,once they got inside they could not keep their hands of each other.
Bernie picked up serena took her into her bed room and started to undress her,serena started to undress Bernie,before long they were both naked
Serena will you please tell me what is in the smaller bag Bernie asked serena opened it up and a selection of dildos fell on to the bed,ahh said Bernie are we going to try one out or not
Bernie we will try the fucking lot if that is what you want to do,serena then opened her larger bag and pulled out a harness,you have to strap a dildo on this harness so you can give your lover maximum pleasure,and maximum penetration.
Serena picked out the biggest dildo she had got strapped it to the harness then she put it on.
Bernie being one to please serena got down on her knees and started to deep throat the dildo,serena then started thrusting backwards and forwards as if she was fucking bernies mouth
Bernie kept her hand around the dildo so she could take as much or as little of the dildo as she wanted.she kept circling the head of the dildo with her lips this was certainly turning serena on,serena then said with an air of authority,that is enough.
The 2 women started kissing each other again serena pushed Bernie on to her back,now let me see just how wet you are she run her finger the length of bernies pussy my god you are dripping wet Bernie,with that serena lay on top of Bernie and guided the dildo into bernies very wet pussy and she started thrusting the dildo in and out of Bernie are you enjoying it my lover serena asked,fuck fuck serena I really need you to be harder and faster I am so fucking close to cumming,with a couple more thrusts Bernie had cum.
serena undid the harness and passed it to Bernie,right now fuck me like I have just fucked you please Bernie,she put the harness on lay serena on her back got on top of her guided the dildo into serenas very wet pussy thrusting in and out,bernie just stopped,what the fuck is wrong Bernie,i need to see your tit bouncing about as I fuck you.
Serena lifted her hands above her head and held on to the headboard Bernie started thrusting in and out watching with glee as serenas tits bounced around Bernie could not help herself she had started to suck on serenas nipples.
Serena let out a rather large moan indicating to Bernie that she had cum bernie just carried on lying on top of serena,removing the dildo only for it to be replaced by bernies strong fingers.

The assistant showed them to the adult book section just behind those were the dvds and behind them was a large selection of dildos all sizes and colours, serena asked Bernie what she wanted Bernie pointed to some books and a couple of dvds that she thought that they could watch and read the books,
Bernie then asked serena what she wanted she pointed straight away to a collection of large dildos,bernie reached up and got one of the shelf the assistant pointed out that the one Bernie had picked up was one of the best sellers with how big it is I am not surprised said serena.

Henrik Hanssen made sure that serena had the day off when Bernie left for a tour of duty and the day off when she came back.Bernie knew she had to be at raf brize Norton early on the Saturday,so on the Friday serena made sure that there was enough petrol in the car to get to brize Norton and back while serena was doing that Bernie was making sure that she had all her kit packed and whatever else she could take,priority was a photograph of the 2 of them not long after they started their relationship,where Bernie went that picture went with her Bernie called it her good luck charm.

to which serena said course I bloody well missed you you saft sod.
Serena drove them home,the moment they got home Bernie said that she was going for a long hot shower,so serena joined her,when they emerged from the shower, Bernie just flopped on the bed and fell asleep.
Serena covered Bernie with the duvet and let her sleep trying to keep as quiet as possible why her beloved Bernie caught up on the sleep that she had missed out on while serving with the army in northern Ireland.
Bernie woke from her sleep at about 12.00pm ,Bernie got up and dressed herself went down stairs where serena was making herself a cup of tea, hi darling, Bernie said while kissing serenas neck hi yourself serena said while kissing Bernie on the lips,bernie started to kiss serena like her life depended on it Bernie then picked serena up and took her back upstairs when they made love time after time. They just lay wrapped around each other talking about how much they had missed each other while Bernie had been on tour of duty in northern Ireland.
Serena then announced that she was going to get up and make them something to eat,as Bernie had not had anything to eat since she landed at brize Norton the previous day.Bernie got up got dressed went downstairs into the kitchenwhere she found serena looking at take away menus thai or Chinese serena asked whatever you fancy love I am not that fussed to be honest love Bernie said,60 minutes later they were in their living room tucking into a Chinese takeaway.Once they had finished serena settled herself on to bernies lap running her fingers through bernies mop of golden hair kissing her neck,god I have so missed you darling just sitting here with you running my fingers through your hair and just sitting and talking to you caring for you,i know you have darling Bernie replied,i too have missed you just talking to you,making love to you spending time with you. Still I am back now until my next tour of duty,however you know that I still have to go back to the army hospital to carry on my training don't you darling,yes I understand that my love.
On the sunday as Bernie was due to go back to the army hospital on the Monday serena had to go to the hospital to finish off some paperwork,bernie went with her,on the way in they spotted fletch with his 4 children Mikey,Evie,Chloe,and Liam or as serena had named them the fletchlings with bought a smile to bernies face,serena asked Bernie to hold her hand bag while she held Liam,who was the youngest of the 4 children.Bernie watched with intrest as serena seemed so content around the 4 youngsters,she took them to the hospital shop,where she aked fletch if it was ok to buy them a chocolate bar each,fletch said it was ok as they had had their sunday lunch and they had behaved themselves. Bernie watched serena around the children and started to think to herself,would serena want a family with Bernie, she decided that she would not say anything to serena but she would look at the options available to them. Serena and Bernie left the hospital just over an hour later,but she could not leave without saying goodbye to fletch and his children in to the staff room they went and serena crouched down to give all 4 kids a hug and a kiss goodbye promising to see them before much longer. Driving home serena said that fletchs kids were no trouble when they were at the hospital,with that Bernie turned to serena and said would you like us to take them out for the day on Saturday,serena turned and what did you just say darling,shall we ,take them out for the day on Saturday to give fletch a break serena asked Bernie if she was serious to which Bernie replied yes I am serious darling lets take them to the zoo or the seaside for the day serena said that she would put the idea to fletch when she saw him at work on Monday. when serena saw fletch on the Monday morning she called him in to her office and she put the idea to fletch that serena and Bernie would like to take his kids out on Saturday for the day to either the zoo or the seaside fletch asked if serena and Bernie were mad she was offering to take his kids out for the day,no one had asked before serena said what is your reply to our offer to take your children out for the day,ok then said fletch is that a yes then fletch serena asked yes it is a yes fletch said but I will have to give you a list of what they can and cannot have ok serena brilliant serena said.When she got back home the first thing she did was to phone Bernie and tell her that fletch had said it was ok for them to have fletchs kids for the day on Saturday Bernie said brilliant are we taking them to the zoo or seaside then serena the seaside I think Bernie. The week went so quickly serena finished at the hospital at 1.00pm on Friday she went shopping to get some food that she thought that the kids would like, then she went and collected Bernie from the barracks got home and they got the car ready for the journey to the seaside on the Saturday.serena was so looking forwardto spending the day with fletchs kids and giving fletch a child free day.They rose early on the Saturday serena went downstairs made them both a cup of tea and some breakfast,bernie went in the shower when she hadfinished she got out dried herself off put on her jeans and a light blue v neck jumper and her trainers serena was dressed in jeans a black camisole and one of her trademark blouses and trainers.They got to fletchs house for about 9.30am fletch called them both in 3 of the kids ran to serena and Bernie, picking the youngest one up liam serena asked where is mikey he has got a bad tummy so he is unable to go with you today.They left fletchs house at 10.00am drove down to the seaside Bernie got everything out of the car,and she could not help but marvel at the way how serena handled the children,not letting them have any sweets unless they ate all their lunch,making sure they did what they were asked to do not going to near to the sea unless Bernie or serena were with them,not talking to strangers playing with their toys or helping Bernie to make the biggest sandcastle you could ever imagine.Bernie thought to herself if she is like this with fletchs kids how would she be with one of their own she thought.As their day out came to an end Bernie started to collect everything the kids had played with putting the toys back into the boot of the car, they got the kids into the car and put the seatbelts on them,then they started the drive back to fletchs house,when they arrived at fletchs house the 2 girls got out of the car and ran to fletch and serena gently got liam out of the car she held him in her arms and asked fletch were his bed was fletch showed serena where his bed was and she gently put him down to sleep kissing his forehead night night liam serena said and turned and walked out of his room.Down stairs Bernie was drinking a cup of tea that fletch had made for them he thanked them for taking the children out for the day it was our pleasure fletch. After seeing serena with the children it made Bernie want to ask serena about having a family.When they got back home they emptied the car took out the picnic basket took out the toys what they had bought for the kids had something to eat and settled down to watch the tv,serena noticed that Bernie was staring into space,and she asked what the problem was Bernie took serenas hand and asked her how she thought about them having a family.

Chapter Text

Bernie are you bloody serious or not serena asked seeing you with fletchs kids today I think you make a brilliant mum,bernie do you have any idea what you have just asked me, yes serena I have been wanting to ask you for quiet a while now. Bernie lowered her head,sorry serena but seeing you with fletchs kids it was a stupid idea forget I even asked please serena ,you are really serious Bernie serena asked please can we just forget about it Bernie pleaded.
Bernie went back to the barracks on the sunday afternoon serena went back to holby city on Monday,when she got to her office she closed her door and phoned a collegue for advice about what Bernie had suggested,Derwood Thompson was the head of obs and gynea so he made an appointment for serena to see him later that day.The appointment was for 3.00pm serena said to fletch that she needed to be somewhere at 3.00pm but she did not disclose to any one where she was going or who she was going to see. Serena kept her appointment with Derwood she explained that her girlfriend had suggested that they try for a family of their own,serena said that yes she would love to be a mum to her and bernies child,but was unsure about the options available to them.Derwood explained that they could use a sperm donor,or ivf he gave serena a load of leaflets and told her to talk it over with Bernie because what ever their decision would be Derwood would be happy to monitor serena throughout her pregnancy. Friday came around quicker than usual serena went to pick Bernie up from the barracks,when they got back home serena said to Bernie that they needed to talk about various subjects,bernie agreed with serena . I have been thinking about what you said last week Bernie about us having a family of our own,please love I asked you not to talk about this again,it was just a stupid idea of mine,well after careful thinking and consideration I would love to be mummy to our child, Bernie turned her head slowly towards serena,say that again so I know that I am not dreaming to which serena replied I would love to be mummy to our child I spoke to Derwood Thompson,who is the head of obs and gynea he gave me these leaflets and some advice,but what about your medical career Bernie asked we will cross that bridge when we come to it serena replied. he wants us to make an appointment to see him so we can go through our options,ok then darling you make the appointment and I will get the time off.The appointment was made for 4 weeks later Bernie had to ask for the time off which was granted by her c.o serena also booked the day off work which was granted by Henrik hanssen .The day of the appointment dawned it was for 10.15am with derwood who would go through their options when the walked into the hospital reception every one looked serena what you doing here it is your day off you know raf said we have an appointment at 10.15 raf that is why we are here serena said with a smile on her face. Derwood called them into his office and they talked through their options they both agreed that sperm donation would be the best way for them,derwood then explained that they would need to book an appointment with their own g.p and tell him about their plans to try for a child via sperm donation.When they got back home Bernie was straight on the phone trying to get an appointment with their g.p. they were in luck they had just had a cancellation so if Bernie and serena wanted that appointment then it would be booked for them,ok wewill take the appointment at 3.45p.m. When they got to the doctors surgery they were called in,the doctor invited them in and asked them to take a seat with that serena began to explain that they wanted to try for a family via sperm donation.

With that the doctor said ok I can put you in touch with a couple of clinics who specialise in sperm donation,thank you serena said as they left the doctors surgery.When they got home they got their laptop computer out and looked at the regulations surrounding parental rights.Serena would be the biological mum,bernie would be named as the second parent, then they looked when the best time to go through with the sperm donation should be.The following day Bernie made some phone calls to the clinics that had been recommended to them by their g.p.
The next weekend when Bernie was home they sat and discussed what they would hope their child would be like. Serena looked at her and said darling we have a long way to go before we actually go through with the sperm donation,bernie agreed that she was right.Serena knew that she would have to go through a series of tests,just to make sure she is ovulating regulary and she also had to be prepared in case the treatment failed.serena made another appointment with their g.p because she had always suffered from heavy and erratic periods,so she asked her g.p if there was any tablets she could take to help regulate her periods the doctor recommended the pill which would help regulate her periods and stop them from being so heavy.serena explained to Bernie why she had gone on the pil,the doctor advised serena that she would need to be on the pill for at least 12 months for her periods to be regular and not so heavy.Serena started taking the pill in the hope that one day she and Bernie would have the child that they both wanted.
In the first week of October Bernie announced that she was going on a 6 month tour of duty,however this tour of duty was due to start in the beginning of December,which meant that this would be the first Christmas they had been apart for almost 4 years,serena was heartbroken Christmas without her beloved Bernie.The weeks passed so quickly .,serena had made up her mind to try for a child before Bernie went away on tour. When serena told Bernie that she wanted to try for a child before Bernie went away she asked serena are you sure sweetheart to which serena said I have never been so sure of anything else darling so Bernie phoned the London fertility clinic and booked an appointment for them to go through the procedure of sperm donation, when the day finally dawned upon them serena had to be in the clinic for 7.30am,they had both been awake since 4.00am both had showered had their breakfast,bernie put serenas bag in the boot of their car they left their house at 6.00am to be in plenty of time,they arrived at the clinic just before 7.00am they entered the clinic and serena checked in to the clinic serena was escorted to a side room where Bernie followed her she was asked to get undressed and put on the standard hospital gown the nurse returned 10 .00minutes later to check her blood pressure, temperature,height weight the nurse explained that the doctor would be in to see her shortly,and explain what would be happening and that she would have to lie down for a couple of hours at least. The doctor finally arrived to see serena at 9.15 am and explained what would be happening and how long she would be in hospital for,i have not got to stay in overnight serena asked, no just for a couple of hours at the most the doctor explained.Bernie and serena looked to each other and then Bernie had to say goodbye to her beloved serena just for a couple of hours,what time can I come back to take serena home Bernie asked,the doctor replied about 2.0pm everything should be done by then Bernie kissed serena on the lips and told her that she would be back to take her back home later.

Bernie walked out of the clinic and just waited in their car she started the engine drove home,it took just over 45 minutes to get back home,she phoned the clinic asking how serena was the nurse replied that she had just gone into theatre where the procedure was to take place,bernie asked how long would it take to find out wheather serena was pregnant or not the nurse replied if serena got her period then it had been a failure if she didn't get a period then there was a chance that just maybe serena could be pregnant.
Bernie got her wallet and cheque book because she wanted to get serenas Christmas presents before she went of on tour,she bought her some very sexy underwear her favourite perfumes and some other little stocking fillers which she knew serena would enjoy opening up on Christmas day. Bernie phoned the clinic at 1.30 to see if serena was ready to be discharged,the nurse replied yes she is only waiting for you,bernie jumped straight in the car drove to the clinic arriving just before 2.00pm.
Bernie entered the clinic reception area,asked where serena Campbell was, the nurse escorted Bernie to where she was waiting she put her arms around her and kissed her like kissing was going out of fashion,the senior staff nurse replied someone has been missed to which serena replied this is nothing compared to what she is normally like,they all laughed as they left the clinic serena explained it might not be for 6 weeks before we find out if we have been successful darling,to which Bernie replied I will be on tour in Afghanistan.
Serena said that she would tell her when they spoke whilst Bernie was on tour,she held her girlfriends hand, darling I know how important the army is to you now but I will tell you the moment I find out you promise me serena Bernie pleaded I promise my darling serena replied. Serena bought their Christmas day forward so she could enjoy their last few days before Bernie left for her next tour,they exchanged gifts and cards this was bliss they both thought,serena broke the moment by saying that this could be their last Christmas as a couple Bernie looked at her with a startled look on her face,what do you mean darling,well we could have a little one with us next Christmas,bernie looked at her are you trying to tell me something darling,no just that if everything has gone ok we will be parents this time next year.Serena went upstairs to take a long hot shower she got out dried herself off put on some of the sexy underwear that Bernie had bought for her for Christmas.She went back downstairs in to their living room only to find Bernie lying across their sofa naked,serena just marvelled at just how fit and toned her girlfriend really was ,she soon lost her sexy underwear that Bernie had bought her serena climbed on top of Bernie and started to kiss her neck working her way down to bernies wet pussy she inserted her index finger and started to rub bernies clit,bernie was giving serenas tits a good massage slowly serena inserted 3 fingers inside bernies wet pussy thrusting slowly until she knew Bernie was close to cumming serena started thrusting faster Bernie gave out a loud moan serena knew Bernie had just gushed all over her hand serena then started to lick bernies cum of her hand Bernie just picked serena up and took her to their bedroom where she opened serenas very wet pussy with her tongue where she sucked on her clit her tongue thrusting in and out of serenas pussy,darling please put the strap on on for me please Bernie did as she was asked.

She then put her hand on to her tummy well it is just you and me now little one until momma comes back,serena had an idea that she was pregnant but did not want to tell Bernie in case it was a false alarm.Serena went to work and booked an appointment with Derwood in obs and gynea.She booked the appointment for 4.00pm with derwood she went upstairs to maternity where Derwood was waiting for her,now serena how can I help you today,he asked do you remember when I came to see you earlier this year about me and my girlfriend trying for a family of our own yes I remember that meeting serena,why,well we have tried to have a baby using sperm donation at the London clinic,oh yes I know of that clinic well it was nearly 6 weeks ago,and my period is late could you do a pregnancy test please Derwood,certainly serena.

Now come and see me tomorrow and I will do an ultra sound scan so we can see how everything is going ok,serena just sat there with the biggest grin on her face she could not wait to start showing her baby bump off once she started showing. she drove home thinking about how Bernie would take the news,no she would not tell her until she came back from this tour. the baby was due in early july Bernie would have have been back 2 months by the time the baby was due. the following day she went for her ultra sound scan with derwood everything was fine serena asked derwood if she could give birth at holby city well she did know everyone there and it made sense she also wanted derwood to look after her during her pregnancy. Bernie had been away for 4 weeks and they had only spoke twice on the phone but Bernie always wrote to her beloved serena,and serena would always write to her beloved Bernie. serena booked an appointment with Henrik hanssen to discuss something very important with him,he asked her to go straight upstairs to his office as he only had a spare 30 minutes before the annual board meeting started.So miss Campbell what can I do for you today ,as you know I am in a same sex relationship my partner is currently doing a six month tour of duty out in Afghanistan, I am aware of that miss Campbell ,well the thing is I have just found out that I am expecting our first child and I need to sort my maternity leave out.

Serena wrapped the scan picture inside the message that she sending to Bernie, she placed them both in the envelope sealed it down put some sellotape across the back of the envelope so that it would not come open and the picture and message would not fall out. She then took it and posted it., later that evening serenas phone rang she picked it upand saw that it was Bernie, hi darling how are you doing serena, yeah I am good thanks and you yeah I am fine sweetheart missing you though serena, Bernie I have put you a letter in the post,so you should receive it in about 7 days time,ok love cannot wait to receive it and hear all about your work at holby city, and I cannot wait to hear about you working on the frontline serena said .

Serena went to work as usual fletch was the first one to notice her small bump, serena was positively glowing, being pregnant suited her. she thought what a pity that Bernie would not see their small bump growing,the next time Bernie would see her she would be 7 months pregnant. Bernie phone serena most nights if she could if not serena understood that it was difficult .10 days after serena had told Bernie that she had posted a letter to her Bernie told her it had not yet arrived,serena was shocked to hear that it had not yet arrived every other letter that she posted to Bernie always arrived within 7/10 days later Bernie said that she would ask if there was more post anywhere in the camp.

The rest of the evening they lay,entwined in each other's loving embrace,wondering what the future held for them,and their family, when would Bernie be on her tour of duty, where would she be sent,what about the baby that they were expecting,bernie put her finger to Serena's lips, don't let us worry about that that now, my love, let us just enjoy the moment.
The following day they were having breakfast in the restaurant, when the announcement came on the t.v.that all available army personell must return to their respective barracks as the trouble in Iraq had intensified,some 1500 soldiers were due to be deployed straight away.
Serena started to cry, darling they may not need me just yet.,please Bernie phone them I need to know if you are going away today. She phoned her barracks to see if she was needed to fly out to Iraq to be with the rest of the medical corps.
Bernie returned to the table her head in her hands, sweetheart please tell me I need to know what is going on,serena,my love,i am so very sorry, I am scheduled to be on the 15.00hrs flight out to Iraq. serena screamed no please no,darling no we have had only maybe30 hours together ,and now you have to go back,no please no.
Bernie paid the bill and they left the hotel got a taxi to the home that they shared,serena looked at the answering machine,the red light was flashing[which meant that they had received new messages] so she checked the messages 'captain wolfe there will be a car to pick you up at 13.15hrs please make sure that you are ready as we need to get to the air base as quickly as possible' serena told Bernie of the message.bernie started to cry,i was so looking forward to spending so much time with you, and when the baby was born spending time with him or her, decorating a nursery assembling the nursery furniture now I will miss out on all that my love.
Bernie,my love I knew what I was letting myself in for when you signed up for the army but we will overcome all these obstacles I promise you have to do this this is what the army trained you for.

Serena walked back inside their home,bernie had been home less than 2 days and now she was off again on another tour of duty serena thought, however I must carry on and be strong for all 3 of us she told herself.
On the sunday she was in her living room when she looked at her laptop,someone was trying to connect with her via skype,she logged on and lo and behold it was her Bernie. Darling how are you she squealed with delight at seeing her lover,i am fine sweetheart but this is not a nice call I am making to you, what is the matter darling, serena asked this is an 8 month tour that I have been deployed.Serena looked 8 months but when you come home the baby will be 2 months old,and you cannot make up those 2 months that you have missed out on darling.
am so sorry sweetheart but my hands are tied I cannot get out of it,bernie replied but I will try to see if I can take a leave of absence,to be with you my darling .
Bernie then had to close the call as she had been called out to a roadside accident. 10 days passed before Bernie phoned serena again sorry I am so late love but with injuries and one thing and another I have not had much time for anything. Never mind all that sweetheart how are you serena exclaimed at hearing Bernie's voice,i am doing fine, what about you and bubba, we are fine darling thank you for asking
Bernie then told serena to sit down and listen carefully,as I got called back to action before my previous leave of absence had finished I will just be doing 6 months because the army owe me nearly 3 months leave,so I should be back home with you just as you start your maternity leave Bernie told her,if you want me back home by then Bernie asked with a smile on her face, well I might have to consider it captain wolfe because I have a stunning girlfriend who may be due back about the same time. but Bernie had something so spectacular for her return.
Darling when are you expected back home then serena asked around the 28-30th of may if all goes well, which I hope it does and I should land at raf brize Norton as usual,but I will let you know the detail nearer the time sweetheart ok Bernie said,just tell me so I can be there for you when you return to me was Serena's reply.
The next few months went so quickly Bernie phoned or skyped serena as often as she could,sometimes they would cry to each other sometimes they would just laugh but each time they so missed each other with such a passion it was unreal.
Friday 26th of may 2000 is a day serena will never forget. The doorbell rang so she went and opened the front door.
Good morning, serena asked. you are miss serena Campbell are you not yes why, good morning my name is brigadier James thompsom Smythe, but my friends call me smudge as my glasses are always smudged, what can I do for you was Serena's reply, looking at the rather large box in his hands.
You are captain Berenice wolfe's partner are you not he asked,oh my god,what has happened to her was Serena's anguished cry, if I may come in please miss Campbell,serena let him in and then closed the door behind her.
Please do not alarm yourself,captain wolfe is totally fine was his reply,why are you here then serena asked.
Captain wolfe asked me to bring this parcel to you.
Why could she not just post it to me was Serena's reply, well it would appear that a couple who are in captain wolfe's regiment are getting married and I think she was hoping that you would go and represent captain wolf and yourself as she wil not be there herself.
The brigadier left and serena opened the box. Inside was the most beautiful cream coloured 2 piece suit and kitten heeled shoes to match.
The brigadier watched as serena admired the suit, Bernie she fell for it hook line and sinker the brigadier reported to Bernie ,excellent replied Bernie,now to get everone else sorted.
Bernie walked in to aau and asked for all staff to be in albies at 19.30hrs was bernies request.
Bernie and the brigadier were sitting at a large table waiting for the other's to join them
19.30 hrs fletch morven raf and jasmine all walked in get what you want from the bar Bernie announced,so they all got their drinks and went and sat by Bernie and the brigadier.

Chapter Text

Friday june 21st Bernie and serena arrived at the palace,they had been told that a car would be arriving at their home to take them to the palace so Bernie could be awarded her medal.
When they arrived,they were taken to the ceremonial awards room,where there were service men and women from the army, navy,and the r.a.f all were there to receive a medal from prince Charles.
Bernie was first to be announced.
Captain Berenice Wolfe royal army medical brigade has been awarded the Victoria cross for bravery,which went beyond and above the call of duty,saving several families from death.
She walked to prince Charles,he shook her hand and congratulated her on receiving another medal,at this rate captain,you will have more than me he joked, he then presented Bernie with the medal and pinned it to her regimental jacket, thank you your highness as she received the medal.
She walked 3 steps backward turned saluted her commanding officer and returned to be with serena, oh darling that was so fantastic seeing you receive your medal,she said with tears in her eyes.
Two hours later she was outside with serena having their photograph taken,they were asked how many copies they would like 4 was Serena's quick reply.
4 Bernie said ' one for me, one for bubba, one for us, and one for my desk on my office at holby city.
Bernie's commanding officer handed her a letter what is this sir, was bernies reply, she has not to go away again has she serena asked.
No Bernie is on leave until January at least,he replied, he also explained that they would need to go to the barracks, sir,back to barracks why what is the problem, all will be revealed when you and Mrs Wolfe arrive there.
They got back in their car,and the driver told them he would take to the barracks as he had been to do so by the commanding office.
When they arrived at the barracks they were escorted to the c.o's office, Captain and Mrs wolfe sir the young soldier announced, please come in .
Once in his office he asked if they wanted any thing to drink, 10 minutes later a tray with 3 cups of coffee arrived,Mrs wolfe would you care for biscuits no thank you was seren's reply.
Right then down to business he announced, sir, just what is all this about Bernie asked, ok then Bernie, I will tell you in view of your selfless actions and the fact that you have saved countless civilians,as well as countless army comrades it has been decided that you have been promoted.
Promoted Bernie asked, yes, that is right was his reply, however you will not be able to call yourself Major Berenice Wolfe until after the ceremony,and you need to go to the see the tailors about getting a complete new uniform,as well as a new complete dress suite and you will also be given the ceremonial sword which if you attend a function to do with any of the regiments you will be expected to wear, so if you book an appointment they will take all measurements from you and to have it completed within 6/8 weeks.
Bernie and serena looked at each other,my wife will be a major in the british army, she said with pride in her face and a big grin on her face, that is correct Mrs wolfe, please do call me serena.
At present captain wolfe is becoming one of the armies most decorated veterans.

Chapter Text

Less than 24 hours after Bernie had been told that she had been promoted to major, she was in London being measured for her new uniform, serena was by her side.
The tailor showed Bernie picture's of her new uniform and dress uniform and the ceremonial belt, sword and her cap,serena grinned from ear to ear thinking just how gorgeous Bernie would look in her new uniform,that showed off her curves as well as her perfect chest serena thought.
Right captain wolfe we have all your measurements and your new uniform and dress suit should be ready about the 2nd week in August Mr. jones the tailor said, ok then will it go straight to the barracks or do I need to collect it direct from you Bernie asked, no it will need to be collected by you when I phone you to tell you it is ready.
Bernie, Bernie sweetheart, please we need to go to the hospital,darling what is wrong, I think little bubba wants to make an appearance.
Bernie asked Mr Jones to phone for an ambulance straight away, are you sure serena or is it just Braxton hicks,no I do believe I have started love.
10 minutes later the ambulance arrived and the driver said ok love we will wait for your husband and then we will go to hospital, my wife is with me serena snapped, Bernie just looked and said we really need to go now.
The driver looked ok then if you are sure,we need to go to holby city,that is where my wife is booked into when she gives birth Bernie told them.
Darling what time is it serena asked,12.40 hrs why serena because I want to know what time I bloody well started don't I. sorry sweetheart Bernie apologised the ambulance arrived at holby city at 13.10hrs and she was taken straight upstairs to the maternity department ,whilst Bernie booked her in.
When Bernie got to maternity she saw Derwood Thomson,head of obs and gynae, please Derwood will you look after serena,bernie pleaded,it will be my pleasure he replied
Berni had booked serena in to a private room,she waited patiently as the midwife did all the necessary checks on serena,ok love you can go in and wait,so serena is in labour then, Bernie asked most certainly the midwife replied with smile on her face.
Bernie,please go and have something to eat and drink serena said weakly,not on your life,i am not leaving your side my love, serena gripped her hand thanks love she said weakly
News of serena being in labour, quickly spread through holby city, Fletch who was working on aau told all the staff that as soon he had any news about serena,he would relay the news to everyone.
Bernie sat patiently with serena waiting for any sign that the labour was progressing,Bernie,i think my waters have broken serena said,ok Bernie pulled the covers back,serena was lying in a pool of water.
Bernie pressed the button above Serena's bed,the midwife came in. Now what is the problem here she asked, serena,s water's have broken
Are you sure,bernie pulled the bed clothes back.Right then we need to move you ,serena was not having any of it,move away I am in too much agony to be moved,do you understand serena snapped.

He has got a healthy appetite the midwife replied,as long as he get's enough,i do not mind
Have you any thoughts on names yet, nothing yet
We both like Cameron Richard ,but we are undecided,so for the time being he will be baby wolfe.
09.00 Serena's room started to fill up with flowers; the 1st bouquet was blue and white [serena thought blue and white because Bernie supported west Bromwich albion football club] no my love you have given us a son so blue for a boy,darling sorry serena replied.
Then a little blue and white posy 'hello mummy' was written on the card
Serena then told Bernie that she needed to sort out a nursery and clothing for their son.
Bernie went and bought a moses basket and a couple of sleep suits.
But she had one hell of a surprise for serena when she came out of hospital.

Chapter Text

At 13.00hrs Bernie returned to the hospital,hello darling Bernie said to serena,how is our son doing then, he is doing fine,he also has a healthy appetite,really what do you mean my love,he cannot get enough milk from me oh ok as long as you are both doing ok,that is what I need to know.

Harrods, Bernie did you just say harrods nursery department, yes my love why, what is the matter I thought that we would be getting everything from mothercare, sweetheart when it comes down to you and our son nothing but the very best for both of you.
Bernie went and got 3 extra chairs for the staff to sit down and go through everything that they would need for their son's nursery and his clothes etc.
2 hours later serena and Bernie had decided which nursery they wanted for their son and had selected some clothes and sleepwear for him, Bernie, yes my love, serena looked at Bernie would you do something for me please but of course, what do you want me to do for you Bernie asked.
With that serena got out of bed,sweetheart you should be resting shouldn't you I am fine love, she walked over to the cot where their son lay she gently picked him up come on my love, you need to meet a very special person.
She walked back over to where Bernie was sitting down, there you go my love with that she gently placed their son in her big arms,there you go my love there is your son,the tears welled up in Bernie's eyes oh my love he is just so perfect a bit like his mummy Bernie replied.
Well that is a sight I never thought I would see, my big macho army medic wife crying over our son, sweetheart I cannot believe that this little bundle of joy is ours, well you had better believe it because he is ours.
Bernie sat and held their son cooing over him, my love I promise you you will never want for anything and I will always be there to love you and protect you from all harm she said.
Serena just sat on her bed admiring her wife,who was a blubbering wreck, darling it is ok for you to show your emotions over our son,darling say that again please what my love serena asked those 2 words I never thought I would hear do you mean our 'our son' yeah Bernie replied.
The midwife walked in, we have Fletch and some staff from aau,are you up to seeing anyone yet Mrs wolfe, show them in please Fletch jasmine Morven and Raf all walked in.
Well where is this little man we have all heard about then,bernie looked up her face tear stained here he is Fletch, she stood up and let Fletch hold him,oh my god he is a little bruiser ain't he Fletch joked serena and Bernie laughed well we do not know about that but he is just gorgeous,Morven asked can I have a munch of him please serena of course you can Fletch handed baby wolfe to morven, Jasmine, just look how beautiful he is, with that Jasmine told her I bet you would like to have one wouldn't you.
Serena and Bernie looked at each other, is there something you want to tell us girls Bernie asked,well we have tried to keep it quiet, but yes we are together, congratulations Bernie announced.
We have only been together 4 months, but this is so right me and Morven being together, we just hope that we can be as happy as you are.
Derwood walked in to Serena's room,how is my favourite new mummy doing then serena replied I am fine thank you,ok then I just need to examine you to make sure you are ok,with that everyone except Bernie left the room,.
Once derwood had examined serena he announced that serena could go home the following day, Bernie said that she would start decorating the nursery as soon as she got home,that is fine darling serena replied, I really want it ready for when our son comes home though.
Sweetheart,you have informed your c.o haven't you about the baby being born, I phoned him and told him that you gave birth to our son at 05.30 hrs this morning,he sends you his love and congratulations,my love,but I have to go and see him in the morning about my promotion ceremony.

The midwife walked back into Serena's room with a large bouquet of flowers, who are they from serena asked there is a card for you to read Serena she replied
'to captain wolfe and her wife Mrs wolfe,with our heartiest congratulations on the birth of your son' the royal army medical brigade darling they are from your regiment yes I know when I phoned my c.o. he told me that they had arranged a surprise for you,but I didn't think it would be such a large bouquet of flowers.

Chapter Text

Bernie bid farewell to her wife with the promise that she would get to the hospital as quickly as she could tomorrow after her rehersal for her promotion ceremony, she got home, made herself something to eat and drink,got out her phone and scanned all the pictures of her wife and newborn son,crying tears of joy at the fact that she had the family life she had craved since she was a child.
She put her phone away as there was a loud knock on their front door,she opened the door,and standing in front of her was Fletch and the gang from aau she called them in,is there something wrong guys,she asked, no but we have come to help you get baby wolfe's nursery sorted,Jasmine proudly told her,ok Bernie replied.
She showed them to the room that was going to be the nursery,bernie had painted it but she had not hung the wallpaper yet, right then Fletch said, Raf and myself we will hang the wallpaper, Jasmine and Morven if you can cut the paper to size ready for us that would be good and paste it. they started to put the paper on the walls when there was another loud knock on the door,berenie rushed down stairs opened the door and there was a harrods delivery van outside captain wolfe the driver asked,yes she replied, we have a delivery for you ok if you could take it upstairs I would be grateful to you,the driver and his mate did as they were asked.
Raf noticed Bernie seemed in a world of her own,hey boss what is the matter,i cannot believe that you 4 have given up your night off to help me get everything ready for when serena and little man come home, well you and serena would do the same for us he replied, they finished decorating the nursery, right then Fletch said now to assemble the furniture.
Who wants some food before we start assembling the furniture, they all agreed to have something to eat, so Bernie sent out for a Chinese takeaway,which they all devoured.
Bernie looked at her watch 17.30hrs she smiled to herself,ok what is the joke Morven asked nothing it is just that baby wolfe is now 12hrs old and I cannot believe how small and cute he is,with that she proudly showed all the pictures to everyone of serena and the baby,oh Bernie he is so cute Morven screamed he certainly is everyone agreed.
She went to put her phone away,when a call from the hospital came through,Bernie please get back to the hospital now Derwood told her,what is wrong Bernie screamed is it serena or the baby she asked,just get back here now Bernie.
She drove like a lunatic to get to the hospital,when she got there Derwood was waiting for her, please tell me what the hell has happened Derwood, calm down Bernie as they started to walk to the maternity ward.
Derwood explained what had happened was unusual but not unheard of, for god's sake just bloody tell me ,it would appear serena was pregnant with twins,and she delivered a baby daughter exactly 12.00hrs after your son was born,can I see her please yes,

Bernie opened the door and serena was cradling their new born daughter,she walked over to serena,darling I had no idea we were expecting twins,i am so sorry.
What the hell are you saying sorry for my love, I am a doctor I should have realised Bernie.Derwood explained that the 2nd twin was hiding behind the first so the 2nd baby would not be seen on the scans, that is fine derwood thank you Bernie said,well I will leave you and your wife and children alone.
Serena and Bernie could not believe it they 2 beautiful children, a son and daughter

Jasmine replied that it was a pleasure helping her and Morven's mentor because Serena had helped them so much with their training in surgery as well as on the wards.
Bernie made them all a drink and told them that she has never been happier than how she was now with her stunning wife and her gorgeous children, Bernie, would you ever consider working at holby city hospital Raf asked,i have never thought about it,but then again I also have my army job, and there are times I go on tours of duty for upto 8 months at a time,and I don't think the holby board would be very happy having me leaving for months at a time then coming back for however long before I go on another tour of duty,
Well we all think that you would be a very welcome member of staff,you know that we would support you and Serena if you did work at holby I mean the 2 hottest surgeons working side by side, you would make a formidable team .a world renowned trauma surgeon and one of Europe's best vascular surgeon what a dream team that would be, Jasmine commented.

Bernie arrived at the barracks at 05.45 hrs, her commanding officer was waiting in his office for her,sorry I am early sir, but sleep and myself do not see eye to eye most days.
That is fine Bernie,right now then you have ordered your new fatigues and dress suit ,yes sir, I have, Bernie will you please call me bob, after all when you get promoted you will be expected to call all senior ranked officers by their Christian names ok then bob.
Right then let's get this promotion ceremony rehearsed he said, with that he asked Bernie to go to the uniform stores,and let's see what they have in store for you to try on.
They walked to the stores,and bob told Bernie to go and see what they have that Bernie could wear. Bob nodded to the young soldier to get the uniforms that were hanging up on the clothes rack.
Bernie took the uniforms from the young soldier,and she went to the changing rooms and opened the covers that were keeping the uniforms clean and tidy,she was shocked, all the uniforms had her name and number and all the major's insignia and badges, she checked the dress suit that also had her insignia on it.
She tried the uniforms on they fitted her like a glove, she then tried her dress suit that to fitted her like a glove, she thought had they ordered these for her,because there was no way all her uniforms and dress suit wuld have been ready in such a short space of time.She put on her dress suit and walked back to bob's office.
I see the dress suit fits you perfectly then,how did you know my measurements, well,we took your measurements from your captain's uniform and hoped for the best,and it would seem that we were correct with your sizes for you fatigues and suit you will also need to get a pair of shoes so you will have a pair for when you wear your dress suit, and you will also need 2 pair of boots for when you are on tour and a new helmet as well. They started with the rehearsal, what was happening and it also had to be timed to perfection so everything would go without a hitch.
He then told her that she would receive the ceremonial sword, and belt and her cap on the day of the ceremony, which was taking place on the 1st of july.
Now tell me about your 2 newborns bob asked, well Cameron was born at 05.30 yesterday and charlotte was born at 17.30 yesterday,Serena my wife did not know she was expecting twins,and they are the most beautiful little babies I have ever seen,with that Bernie got her phone out and showed him photo's of her children, and her wife.
I trust your wife and family will be attending the ceremony yes bob,my wife and family will be here she said with a big grin on her face.
Bernie finished at the barracks earlier than she could have wished for,with that she drove home.
Twice within 24 hours she heard the words your wife and family, those words bought a lump to her throat,god she was so bloody proud of her little family.

Bernie phoned the hospital to make sure that Serena and the twins could come home today,she spoke to the senior duty midwife, yes of course mrs. wolfe and her babies can go home today she told her.

The assistant asked 2 boys or 2 girls, ,no a son and a daughter so I need a blue one and a pink one Bernie said with a smile on her face, no problem we can do that for you no problem.
The assistant fitted the seats and Bernie made her way to the hospital were Serena was waiting,sorry I am late love but I needed to get the baby seats fitted before I picked you up, Serena just grinned so you got the baby seats fitted then my love,yes my love, was bernies reply.

Serena stroked her arm, darling let's go home,all 4 of us, certainly my love let's get you home,because we have a welcoming party when we get back, serena looked at Bernie, well Fletch and the gang wanted to wait to see you and the twins, so I said it would be ok, that is fine sweetheart.
Bernie carefully placed Cameron in his car seat,she then placed charlotte in her car seat, serena was in the passenger seat, Bernie got into the driver's side. She started the engine, put it into gear and started the drive home, Bernie drove slowly, being carefull to avoid potholes and speed bumps as she did not want to disturb their babies as they were sleeping soundly in their seats.
The drive took 45 minutes for them to get home when she pulled up on to the drive Jasmine was the first one outside She shouted inside they are here,with that fletch,raf and morven all rushed outside,well come on then let's have munch of these 2 gorgeous babies of yours raf announced.

An hour after Bernie got her wife and family home it was just the 4, of them her wife and 2 children Bernie thought this what I have waited for all my life my perfect family. Serena asked if Bernie minded if she went for a little nap, after all 24 hours ago she gave birth and she did not get a lot of rest whilst in the hospital, and then there was the aau gang waiting for them once they got home from the hospital, sweetheart go and have a long rest, I can feed or change the babies serena laughed,what is the matter Bernie asked I am feeding the children myself,bernie looked oh so you have decided to breast feed them well it is what is best for them, but I will use the breast pump to express the milk and make a couple of bottles for the babies, so you could feed them with the bottle if you would like to, serena explained to her wife.
I would like to do that love,with that serena expressed enough milk to fill 4 2ounce bottles ready just in case she was asleep when the children woke up and needed feeding.,Bernie then ushered serena up to their bedroom so she could take her rest, darling would you like to see the nurseries that we have decorated, she grinned from ear to ear at the thought of seeing their babies nurseries.
Bernie they are stunning well nothing but the best for our children was Bernie's reply we need to go and buy some more clothes for the 2 of them as they really do not have many. Bernie went back down stairs and opened her laptop and started to check her e-mails there was one from her c.o reminding her of her promotion ceremony which was due to take place on the 1st of july and he needed to know how many guests Bernie would be inviting she replied, well bob apart from serena my wife and Cameron and charlotte [our babies] I cannot think of anyone else,what about your parents or your in laws, my parents disowned me when they found out I was gay,and my wife never talks about her parents so I cannot answer that. Well Bernie how old will your babies be when you have your ceremony ,she replied just over 2 weeks old, well they are your family so shall I tell everyone it will just be your wife and 2week old twins if they will be allowed why would they not be invited he asked, well bob I didn't think they would be as there are no nursery nurses or a crèche where they could sleep,nonsense they are your family and we want them here with you and your wife,no questions asked after all it is your day no one else's, oh and you have to take the salute and dedicate it to someone.
Bernie could not believe what bob had just said, that she could dedicate the salute to whoever she wanted however she would need to write a speech,oh no she thought ,writing speeches was the one thing Bernie could not do,she was not very good at it at school or university when they had to do a presentation, she thought that perhaps serena would help her
When she finished replying to bob's e-mail she closed her laptop down and went upstairs into their babies nurseries she went into charlotte's first, and she sat on the floor just gazing at her beautiful daughter,my darling daughter, I promise you you will be loved so much by me and mummy, nothing will ever be too much trouble for you,and you will have everything that you could ever want my love nothing on earth will ever stop me from loving you, with that she leaned the cot over a placed a kiss on her daughter's forehead, sleep tight my darling.
She then went into Cameron's nursery, again she sat on the floor gazing at her gorgeous son,cameron my darling son,i will make sure that you are protected from all forms of harm,and dangers and I promise you that like charlotte you will never want for anything me and mummy will always love you and nothing will be too much trouble for you,she got up and leaned into his cot and placed a kiss on her son's forehead night night my darling sleep tight.
Bernie turned around slowly as she knew someone was watching her, that has got to be the sweetest sight I have ever seen serena said,tears welled up in Bernie's eyes,i bet you think I am being stupid don't you, no my love I do not just seeing you with the twins warms my heart with joy and so much pride,i am so glad that you are also their momma.

Bernie and serena made their way downstairs to the living room,what is wrong Bernie,she then went on to explain to serena that at her promotion ceremony she would have to make a speech,oh I see serena said, well don't worry my love I will help you with your speech,i seem to recall from our med school days that writing speeches for presentations we did I always had to write them yes that's right I was alway rubbish at writing that sort of thing.
Bob also asked about my parents and yours I told him my parents disowned me when they found out I was gay,and I explained to him that you never talk about your parents,that is fine serena said,anyway I want nothing to do with them,why not darling because they tried to get me to marry a man 15 years older than me his name was Marcus, and he was always drunk, and shagging younger women,and he also made lewd comments about the size of women's figures,so I told him to sling his hook,which disappointed my parents so I disowned them but they live in Greece now, anyway and we have not spoken for years my love. serena my love I am so sorry to hear that, well I for one am not sorry that I have nothing to do with them, serena said.
Well we had better make a start on your speech then, they sat writing for a couple of hours,then the twins woke up,4pm feed time serena announced, well would you like me feed one from a bottle and you feed one yourself, thank you my love but I will feed Cameron first, you could wind him for us and whilst you are doing that I will feed charlotte.ok sweetheart.
They went and bought the twins down stairs serena opened her blouse to feed Cameron,once he had taken his fill from Serena's breast she passed him to Bernie to wind whilst Bernie was winding Cameron serena was feeding charlotte, Bernie could not take her eyes of how big Serena's chest was, darling is everything ok serena asked sorry love I was just hoping that charlotte was getting enough milk from you, really I thought you were admiring how large my chest was, she smirked at Bernie. Well as you asked then the truth is yes I was stunned at how large your chest is.,well as a doctor you should know that a woman's chest gets larger
She finished winding Cameron, serena winded charlotte,once they had done that they put the twins back in their cots. Bernie would you come upstairs please with that Bernie flew up the stairs sweetheart what is wrong is it the babies, are you ok please tell me what is wrong Bernie I am in the bedroom she walked in to their room,to find serena sitting on the bed without her bra or blouse on, love what is wrong are you ok,bernie asked,serena patted to Bernie to lie on the bed with her.
Well what do you think of these,bernie knew she could not stop herself from what she was about to say,serena my love you really are a big girl are you not, you see when I see your beautifully developed chest if find it very difficult to keep my eyes or hands off them, and they are aching to be played with are they not, well go on play with them then before I change my mind, Bernie did not need any more encouragement from serena, she gently started to kiss them and play with her nipples oh my love I have wanted to do this for so long I thought you had to wait no my love as she caressed her wife's buxom chest.
An hour later Bernie stopped playing with Serena's chest, right then Bernie your turn to be played with pardon she replied take off your trousers and knickers please, I need to give you an inspection,just to make sure I have not forgot what you look like down there, with that Bernie opened her legs, my love you are soaked,if you think that my pussy is soaking you should see my knickers she said with a glint in her eye,serena got further down the bed and run her tongue the length of Bernie's gloriously wet pussy she started to lick her clit
She then inserted 3 fingers inside Bernie just gently pumping her fingers in and out of Bernie,darling faster please Bernie begged,so serena started to pump her fingers harder in and out of Bernie,she arched her back let out a large moan,darling I am so close please let me cum,just how close are you my love serena asked,i am so fucking close my love with that she let out a small whisper,she knew she had cum over Serena's hand.

As they lay in their bed after their 'play time' Bernie wrapped her arm around Serena's shoulders are you ok my love Bernie asked darling I am just fine sweetheart thank you, lying here with me in your arms,our babies sleeping soundly, I am so happy I never want this moment to end.
Well my love if I could arrange to keep us in our little bubble for ever I would, however one of our babies needs us as Cameron started to cry, Bernie jumped up out of bed and got her dressing gown on and went into his nursery, gently picked him up started to pace his nursery hoping he would go back to sleep, pass him here my love,serena took him in her arms and went back to their bedroom where she placed him on their bed. Hello little, man now what is all this crying for she said Bernie looking worried,darling he is ok isn't he ,ok course he just wants to be in his mommies arms that's all serena picked him up and started to recite nursery rhymes to him,within 5 minutes he was sleeping soundly,so she put him back down in his cot.
When serena got back to their bedroom Bernie opened the bed for her to get back in, sweetheart have you thought about getting the twins registered so we can get their birth certificates well we need to go and see the registrar as soon as possible them,ok we will book an appointment for next week,she said with a smile on her face.
They then fell asleep, Bernie woke at 06.00hrs oh god the twins have not woken up,she ran into their nurseries, serena was sitting in the rocking chair with charlotte at her breast, its ok love you were totally out of it serena said,oh no she was so sorry that she had not heard them wake,have you fed Cameron she asked he has been fed and changed, darling with that charlotte lost Serena's breast and started to fuss, come on my darling take your fill from mommy, charlotte seemed to not want any more food from serena, she winded her,then changed her,put her back down to sleep in her cot,well that is 2 very happy babies sleeping soundly,and well fed,right then time to get you fed and watered serena said.
Bernie started to laugh, what is so bloody funny serena asked, what you have just said to me why what did I say that is so bloody funny then. you just said that you were going to feed me, she then started looking at Serena's heaving chest you know what I meant Bernie, you need a proper breakfast,well you cannot blame a girl for trying can you.
After they had had breakfast they started to write bernies speech for her ceremony which was quickly approaching.
'Brigadier jameson, Colonel atkins, first off all,i would like to welcome you to the promotion ceremony.
As you all know the army has been my life,since I was god knows how old,and I can say that I have enjoyed meeting new comrades, learning complicated trauma surgeries that I have completed on the frontlines of war,saving people from whatever was happening regarding the battles that were taking place .
However,being promoted to the rank as a major,ranks as the 3rd best thing that has happened in my life.
The first major event that happened in my life,was meeting my beautiful wife, serena wolfe, who is also a doctor who specialises in vascular surgery at holby city hospital and marrying her this year.
The second major event in my life was the birth of our twins who are just over2 weeks old my son Cameron,and my daughter charlotte who like my wife mean the world to me,who I have also promised to care and protect from all forms of harm and dangers.
The 3rd major event in my life is being elevated to the rank of major which is something I ever only dreamed of I never thought that I would achieve such a high rank in the british army,let alone be one of the armies best trauma surgeons.
However if the truth be known I am so grateful that I have had events happen in my life,that most people can only dream of, I really do have a lot to be thankful for.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me achieve in my life what I have always dreamed of which is having a beautiful wife and family and my army career.
Thank you.'
Well what do you think of that serena,bernie looked at her wife,darling that is so beautiful,i never thought that you could write anything as beautiful as that well, I have a beautiful lady sitting next to me that is all I will ever need my love you and our babies by my side with that nothing can or will ever hurt us,as she leaned forward to kiss her wife.

Right then Bernie, this will be the last time I will address you as captain Berenice wolfe, she gave him a salute at ease captain wolfe, she dropped the salute and relaxed, ok then the next time I will see will be at 09.00hrs on the morning of Friday 1st of july, just one thing bob Bernie asked, what time does the ceremony start 11.30 hrs and it should all be completed for 14.00hrs, but do not worry about anything as we will go through the timings on Friday.

Serena and Bernie finally got up from their bed at 05.00hrs,they went downstairs Bernie made them a cup of coffee,and did them some toast,and marmalade, just as they were about to have their breakfast the twin woke up as usual once serena had fed Cameron,bernie would wind him whilst serena fed charlotte.
once they had fed and changed the twins Bernie went into the shower.
Once Bernie had finished in the shower she dried herself off,blow dried her hair and started to get dressed in her captain's dress uniform [her c.o had advised her to wear that dress uniform as her new dress uniform could not be worn until the ceremony began], Bernie walked out of their bed room and heard serena on the phone,'ok so we all know what we are doing then it is ok I have spoken to Bernie's commanding officer he knows about you being there,but Bernie doe's not ok see you there and thank you for keeping this a secret'.
Bernie walked back into their bedroom,what the hell was going on, Bernie started to cry,her serena could not would not never cheat so why the cloak and dagger secrecy, what was she playing at. Bernie went downstairs,sweetheart we need to be at the barracks for 09.00hrs,serena went upstairs to get dressed,bernie went to the lanline phone and pressed the redial button,she was shocked when jasmine answered the phone,hello who is this jasmine asked,sorry jasmine its Bernie Serena's wife I pressed the redial button in error sorry love, how are you doing Bernie,i hear today is a big day for you,yeah it is well I hope everything goes ok for you,thank you jasmine see you soon,yes you will was jasmine's reply.

Serena followed Annabel to the mess where she was introduced to other service wives,some she had seen when Bernie left or returned from a tour of duty,everyone cooed over the twins,now has Bernie explained that during the service if they need feeding or changing I can do that for you if you wish,because I was a midwife at the Portland hospital in central London,yes Bernie did explain that to me but what about you watching the service,serena I have seen loads,and besides I shall be looking after a couple of other toddlers so it is no problem for me to do it if you have no objections.Serena explained that she would like the twins with her when Bernie is finally promoted,that is fine no problem then.
At 10.30,some of the officers guests started to arrive,serena was looking for 'her guests' finally she saw them Morven Jasmine over here,the 2 girls went to serena,we have had a very lucky escape serena Jasmine explained,why what do you mean well Bernie phoned up and said that she had pressed the redial button in error,oh my life,i hope she did not hear me on the phone,she might be thinking the worst,do not worry we will explain everything to her and if she is the woman you say she is she will understand. The door to the officers mess opened, if you are all ready we will escort you outside where the ceremony is due to start,Morven asked serena are you taking the twins outside with you, yes well their mumma is being promoted and it is only right that they are here to watch Bernie be promoted after all she is their mumma.

Brigadier Jameson got up on to the rostrum,good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, we are here today to celebrate the fact that the army's most highly decorated female soldier is at long last being recognised for her comradeship,firm leadership, the fact that she is quiet simply the best soldier myself or Colonel Atkins have ever worked with, whether it be on the battle field, or trying to save a civilians life in the middle of whatever battle is ensuing, she one soldier you would certainly want watching your back. There is nothing that she would not do for any of her dedicated team of soldiers,or nothing that they would not do for her. Serena was a blubbering wreck to think that she is so highly thought of made her heart think it was going to pop out of her chest,,Jasmine passed serena some tissues to dry her tears would you all give a massive round of applause for captain Berenice Wolfe, she was given a standing ovation the applause went on for at least 10 minutes.
Brigadier Jameson,Colonel Atkins, ladies and gentlemen, firstly I would like to say thank you all for attending the promotion ceremony it means a great deal to me, she then stopped her wife was there watching with their twins, tears welled up in bernies eye's god she was so proud of her family,she also saw Morven and Jasmine.
Being promoted to major is something I never envisaged would happen to me.
However there have been significant events that I never thought would ever happen to me.
The first major event that happened in my life was meeting my beautiful wife and earlier this year we got married.
The next major event to happen in my life was the birth of our twins our son Cameron and our daughter Charlotte who are just over 2 weeks old, and yes before you ask they do sleep through the night.
The next major event in my life is being promoted to a major in the british army, I have been in the army since I was god knows how old.
I really do have a lot to be thankful for I,have got what a lot of people would give their right arm for.
My wife Mrs Serena Wolfe is one of the countries best vascular surgeons who also heads up their aau units.
I am so grateful that I have my medical career as well as my army career,i really do have quiet a lot to be thankful for as well as has having my family and friends here today thank you all for joing me and my comrades here today.
So on behalf of myself, Brigadier Jameson and Colone Atkins thank you all for attending my promotion ceremony.

Once the ceremony had finished,bernie had to have the regimental photograph taken, unless having her photo taken with serena, Bernie hated having her photo taken,they were all escorted to the officer's mess,where once they were all assembled the official photographer took several pictures,before deciding which one would be the best one.
Bernie also had to have her photo taken with all the senior officers,and sergeants, as well as several on her own.
Finally at 12.00hrs she would be reunited with her beloved serena and babies,she walked out of the officers mess and walked outside,her eyes scanning for her family,bernie began to panic were where they? .
Good afternoon Major Berenice Wolfe,she recognised the voice straightaway,turning around slowly,Serena was standing behind her, they both started to get emotional,do you realise just how much you mean to me, serena asked I could try to guess,but I might just get it wrong, as Bernie smiled at her.

They decided to leave their range rover at the barracks,well they had both been drinking although they were not over the legal limit,they didn't want to chance it, Major wolf, there will be car to take you and your wife back home, and it will return to your home at 17.00hrs for you to return for your party this evening,we did not expect a car Bernie said,to take us home and then to bring us back.
Bernie now you are a major in the r.a.m.b there are certain privileges that are afforded to you as you are a senior officer, oh I did not know that Andrew she replied, when you return to barracks on Monday we will go through your privileges and all the other traditions that you will be expected to continue, and of course, you will be drilled in handing out disciplinary procedures, and what punishment befits the crime.
They arrived back home at 15.45hrs, they got stuck in traffic whilst leaving the barracks, Morven opened the door to them, how was your lunch she asked,serena said it wasa really nice meal,in fact she had not enjoyed a day such as the she had had today,but then again how often do i ever get to look at my gorgeous wife in her full Major's uniform and scabbard and oh my god the way it shows off your curves and your small but perfect chest, serena I think you have just embarrassed Morven and Jasmine, serena looked up and both girls had started to blush, sorry girls but my mind was wandering back to when I first saw Bernie this morning, with that she got her phone out and showed Bernie the pictures she had taken on her phone, I will download these to my laptop, so when you are at the barracks I can just look at these and think of you.
The car arrived at 16.45 hrs to take them back to the barracks,where everyone was busy decorating the officers mess in readines for Bernie and serena to arrive.
They arrived at 17.40hrs, sergeant whitley, was there to open the car door for major wolfe,and her wife he salute, Major and Mrs. wolfe, we are pleased to receive you this evening, thank you sergeant whitley, as Bernie got out of the car, serena marvelled at just how beautiful her wife looked in her officers dress uniform.
They were escorted to the officer's mess, all the senior officers were there to greet them both. The brigadier was the first to approach Bernie and serena and offered them both a glass of red wine, Major wolfe, you have told us all lies, Bernie looked back at him with a look of surprise on her face you have told us your wife is beautiful Bernie replied yes she is beautiful,well myself and other senior officers are all in agreement your wife is so beautifully stunning,bernie breathed a sigh of relief well I really do think that myself,but when I tell my wife things like that last statement she tell me to stop being silly,don't you darling. serena blushed, and for the first time ever she was lost for words.
By 18.15hrs, all senior officers and bernies soldiers were all in the officer's mess drinking and dancing, and just in general having a bloody good time.
Would MajorBernie Wolfe and her stunning wife Mrs. Serena Wolfe please take to the dance floor, as this will be your first dance as Major and Mrs Wolfe, with that they got up and approached the dance floor and started to dance cheek to cheek, then everyone got up on the dance floor.
Darling you look so stunning tonight, well my wife has got excellent taste in a lot of things such as Bernie asked,well she suggested this figure hugging dress which was red complete with red high heeled shoes,it was set off with the ruby red diamond earrings and necklace, which Bernie had bought for serena after the birth of their twins [Bernie got rubies because she knows that red is one of Serena's favourite colours, she also bought her a red bmw convertible car because serena liked those cars].
Once their dance had finished they returned to their seats both had a glass of wine,Mjor wolfe,bernie looked yes corporal timmins, please may I have the honour of taking this dance with your wife,well my wife is sitting next to me it is Mrs,wolfe you should really be asking, so rather nervously the young soldier asked serena if he could have the honour of the next dance, of course you can have the next dance, after that nearly all of the senior officers and some of the brave soldiers from bernies regiment had asked to dance with serena.
The part finally came to an end at 23.45hrs, Bernie said sorry to everyone that the party had overrun by 45 minutes, don't worry Bernie,after all we don't do this every day,
Captain Whitley, got up and announced 3 cheers for Major and Mrs. Wolfe hip,hip hoooraaay hip hip hooooraaay, hip,ip,hooooraaay congratulations Major and Mrs Wolfe with that they got into their car and went home after all they had had the most beautiful and emotional day and they would not forget it in a hurray.

When they arrived back home, Jasmine opened the door to them,hope you enjoyed your evening,to which serena replied 'we both have really enjoyed ourselves this evening thank you'.
Were the twins any trouble Bernie asked,no they settled really quickly,once we had fed and changed them,Morven replied, with that they all retired to bed for the night.
The household was rather rudely awakened by the crying of charlotte, was was hungry,serena and Bernie got up to see to their children,and as per normal once serena had fed one of the twins, Bernie would wind the baby whilst serena fed the other one Bernie and serena just looked at each other 'thank you for being their for me yesterday my love,it really did mean a lot to see you and our babies' Bernie told her wife with tears in her eyes.
Should it not be me thanking you, serena asked, why Bernie replied, well who else has got the r.a.m.b's newest major, as her wife, best friend, lover, partner,parent to our children, and quiet simply the most sexiest woman to grace the planet, Bernie laughed well seeing as you put it like that how can I argue with you, Jasmine and Morven woke about 07.30hrs.
Jasmine ran to the bathroom,she was suffering from mild morning sickness,serena took her a glass of water upstairs, sweetheart are you ok serena asked as Jasmine opened the door
if I had have known I would suffer like this I would never agreed to having a baby ,she said to serena,if it is any consolation Jasmine my morning sickness stopped when I was 4 months gone with the twins, but then the cravings kicked in.
Every one had had some breakfast,then Jasmine and Morven left serena and Bernie to go back home,which Bernie offered to drive them home because she needed to get a few things for the twins, she dropped them of at their flat,and announced that they would all have to meet up in the near future, we would love that Bernie, thank you, with that they went inside.
The weekend flew by for them both, Bernie got her new uniform ready to go to work in on monday morning, as she was based at the barracks it was just her usual khaki coloured fatigues and her boots, which were so shiny you could see you face on them,she took immense pride in making sure her uniform was pressed to within an inch of its life,her boots so shiny they were the envy of every other senior officer.
Monday 4th july.
Her first day in the royal army medical brigade, as Major Berenice Wolfe, before she left the marital home serena insisted on taking a picture of Bernie in her fatigues,the twins in her arms they also dressed in their fatigues,serena got their camera out and took several pictures, before Bernie asked if she would do the same hold the twins dressed in their fatigues so Bernie could have a picture of her wife and babies on her desk back at the barracks.
When she arrived at the barracks sergeant Whitley as always was there to greet her as she got out of her range rover [she picked it up after she had taken Jas and Morven home on the Saturday morning] Major wolfe you do realise you know have your own parking space don't you he enquired do I, I did not know ,shall i park your vehicle for you major ,yes please sergeant,that would be kind of you.
Bernie walked to the senior officers ,who were waiting to greet her, they all shook hands, now Bernie, before we begin, my name is Andrew I am a brigadier, this gentleman next to me is james, he is a colonel and you now bob, don't you, yes thank you,so please call us by our Christian names, and don't keep using our titles,please , they all laughed, right before we get down to business, it is time for tea or coffee, with that they entered the officer's common room,where they all enjoyed tea and coffee, and just talking about the day that was Bernie's special day.
10.30 am, Andrew called Bernie into his office,please do take a seat Bernie, I have something to tell you,and I don't think you will like hearing what I have to say.
Bernie looked at him I am sorry to tell you Bernie, but you leave for an 8 month tour of duty on Friday.
Bernie could not believe her ears, I was told I was on extended leave until Christmas,my wife has just had twins,why so soon Andrew she asked, Bernie as I say I am sorry,but our troops are so badly depleated on the ground, we need every available soldier we can spare, when do we get be briefed as to our deployment targets and our objectives and aims.
You will get all the relevant information when you return to barracks at 18.30hrs on Wednesday 6th july.
As this is your first tour of duty as a senior officer you will be expected to lead by example encourage the troops when morale is low, give encouragement where needed, praise when praise is needed,comfort the squad if anything should happen whilst out on patrol,if one of the squad is a fatality,unfortunatly, you will be expected to go with the most senior officer and inform their relatives.
Now I will expect to see you at 18.30hrs on Wednesday evening,so please take the next 2 days off and spend them with your family, because after Friday you will not see them until march next year, can I just phone serena and let her know that I am on my way home please Andrew,he gestured to Bernie to use his office phone.
This was going to be the phonecall Bernie was dreading making,'darling,i shall be back home in about an hour ok sweetheart' Bernie told serena, ok love I will be here waiting for you,with that Bernie hung up.
Serena knew that something was wrong,she sensed it when Bernie sound like she had been crying.

Chapter Text

Bernie arrived home at about,12.45hrs,she walked into the living room,threw her briefcase on the floor sat in her armchair,put her head into her hands and started to cry.
Darling I thought I heard you come in serena said,what's wrong ,please Bernie just tell me what is wrong Bernie please I need to know,please just tell me what has happened, Bernie lifted her head,serena just looked at her, my love what is wrong,she pleaded with Bernie to tell her.
Serena I am so very sorry,but believe me it killed me when I was given the news, Bernie what news for god's sake,would you like a drink Bernie,serena asked yeah, a large whiskey please,she went a poured them both a large whiskey please darling sit down,bernie said as they moved tto the rather large settee.
This morning I was called into Andrew's office,and he told me that on Friday 8th july, I fly out to start an 8 month tour of duty, Serena could not believe what Bernie had told her,but we thought you were on extended leave until Christmas,so did I love,but because we are so badly depleated they are sending out every available soldier,on Friday for 8 months.
This will be my first tour as a serving major which neans I will be in overall charge of the tour,but I will now more details when I return to the barracks on Wednesday,i have to be back for 18.30hrs,and I imagine we will all be briefed on Thursday regarding the targets, objectives and so forth.
Bernie,when you signed up for the army, we both knew that there would be days like this,you tell me when you are going on tour of duty, when you return,and I accepted that fact,that you would be away from me for months at a time,Bernie was still crying, sweetheart the twins will be nearly 9months old when I return,i promise you I will do an album of their developments.
I will send you pictures to your phone every day so you can see how they are doing, serena, I will be away from the most important woman in my life and that my love is you.
Well we can talk on the phone or skyp each other write letters to each other weekly, or monthly what ever you want, yes it will be a long 8 months without you,but just safe with the knowledge, you will be back home to me and our children that will keep us both going, during the long days and nights.
Thank you my love what you have just said it was the most beautiful speech you have ever said to me,it really means a lot to hear you say those beautiful words.
Now Major Wolfe, pray explain to me what does it mean when you say you are in overall charge,well I will know more on Thursday,so I will phone you with all the details about our departure time and place,the date when we return where we will be returning to, and all the other details that I can tell you, Serena dried her tears, darling we will be fine, we can and we will be all ok, with that she leaned forward and gave Bernie the longest she had ever done,only for it to be broken by the phone ringing.
Major wolfe Andrew asked yes she replied, I am just phoning you to invite you and your family to join us in the senior officer's mess for a spot of lunch on Thursday afternoon,and once lunch is over you can spend the remainder of the day with serena and your twins, we would like that very much so thank you.
Serena asked what was the matter,bernie told serena about Thursday afternoon,which serena gladly accepted can we take the twins as well serena asked of course my love,for the rest of the Monday they just sat on their settee with their arms wrapped around each other.

Bernie was tossing and turning in bed all night, then at 01 25hrs she got up out of the marital bed and went to their spare room. She tried so hard to try and get some sleep, but nothing could or would help her to get some sleep, so eventually, she rose from her bed, only to find serena standing in the doorway,darling talk to me please, she pleaded with Bernie.
Serena, my love you know that I have problems sleeping before I go on tour, but now I have extra responsibilities to think of, ok sweetheart,talk to me about what you have been told so far all I know is that I will be in overall command of the deployment,but after thursday morning I should know a lot more about my role and responsibilities.
Bernie said that her first and foremost responsibilities now lay to serena and their twins, Bernie, what about the trust and responsibilities you now have to your regiment serena replies.
I have a feeling that I will be in overall charge of 2 maybe3 hospital plus the well being off all the troops,which may be upto 2000,serena, they will look to me for inspiration, help, guidance, and to be there if they need any form of guidance, or counselling if their comrades have been killed in executing their duty, and informing their next of kin.
Serena then told Bernie 'if I were in your brigade I would be so proud, why Bernie asked, because I know what your regiment mean to you as your regiment means to you,thank yo darling, but I may be snappy,irritable,and generally a complete pain in the arse until I get back to barracks on Wednesday.
Ok then you think you being a pain until you go back to barracks on Wednesday serena said, just you wait until I am in labour with baby number3
What, serena,just what do you mean by that last statement, Bernie asked, well I have thought about this, I want to quit working until our family is complete and that you are happy for me to work part time, but if you want me to carry on working then fine I will do so my love was Serena's reply

 

Ok but until I come back you will not do anything about it will you, well ok because I am on maternity leave until june next year any way.

Chapter Text

They went and sat on their settee,so let me get this right,you will be in overall charge of 2 or3 hospitals all the staff, as well as upto 1500 soldiers,serena asked, that is about the size of it love, but until we are briefed on Thursday morning I cannot say anything else I could be wrong,i do not know was Bernie's reply..
Well they must think that you are more than capable of running the overall operation,otherwise they would have chosen someone else darling serena said, but no buts sweetheart if any one can run this operation smoothly my love it is you replied serena with tears in her eyes,s everytime when I put the news on on bbc or itv and they talk about the british troops and doctors and nurses, I will be thinking 'my wife is in overall command of all those army personell' and I will be so proud of you my love, thank you my darling that means so much to me.
Now enough about what may or may not happen with me being in command of operation whiskey, Bernie said, let us talk about what you said about having baby number 3, serena grinned at Bernie,darling I know that we are new to being parents, but I feel so content with having babies all around me,well when did you discover that you were so happy having children around you ,do you remember that day when we took fletch's kids to the seaside for the day serena asked,vaguely, was bernies reply. I know that you were so happy you kept freeting about them running off,going too near to the sea, making sure that they were completely covered in sun cream,so that they would not get burnt, making sure that they had plenty of beach toys to play with,plenty to eat and drink that much I do remember.
Well that day darling was the day I knew that I could not wait for us to become parents, so when I asked you about having a baby were you waiting for me to ask you serena was Bernie's reply.
Truth be known Bernie, I wanted to ask you what you thought about us becoming parents,i was frightend that you would laugh at me for suggesting the very thought,frightend that you would break up with me for even thinking it,i would willingly put my medical career on hold until our family is complete.
The thought of having Cameron and charlotte running wild in the house, a new baby sleeping soundly in their nursery, me trying to keep control, having a pile of washing to do ,having a pile of ironing, cooking you your evening meal,seeing you come home after being at work either still in the army or being a trauma surgeon working possibly at holby city hospital, or wherever,coming home then playing with children on the floor whilst I finish doing whatever,helping me to bath them then putting them to bed,you then tell me all about your day,i tell you how the children have behaved or not serena grinned,that is the life I crave for.
Serena,darling you have trained so hard to get to where you are now,i think it would be such a shame for you to give it up so we can have our dream family,however on saying that,you would not be throwing your career away would you really,you would be taking time out so you can raise our family,bernie told her.
Well once our family is completed and the eldest are at school and the little one/s are at nursery or infant school I could go back to working part time if you were agreeable to that, darlind, if I had my way you would not work at all,because I allways said that the woman I eventually married and had a family with would not work,because I have enough savings to make sure my wife and family would never want or need for anything,but Bernie me or the twins we don't want or need for anything as it is,and I know that you want to get their education sorted out,don't you love,bernie nodded her head,yes love you are right.
Sweetheart tell me what you want in the way of the twins education, promise you will not laugh then Bernie pleaded, darling you know that I will not laugh, because their education is just as important to me as it is to you,so please tellme you would like our children educated then and we will sort it out my love.
I would like Cameron to go to Eton college, and for charlotte to go to Cheltenham ladies college,bernie looked at serena,ok then love we will get their names put down first thing today then,serena sre you serious or not,like you darling I want nothing but the best for all our children, and if it means eton college for our son/s and Cheltenham ladies college for our daughter/s then you have my support do you really mean that serena, Bernie have I ever lied to you about anything my love, no serena, right then we will make the relevant phone calls later.
Now then Bernie my love it is now 03.50am and you have failed in one of your regular duties, sweetheart what duty have I failed in you have not kissed me for nearly 3 hrs,that is what you have failed in, is it too late to rectify my failure serena smiled sweetly, looking at the clock she said to Bernie you have 5 minutes to try and rectify the situation, with that Bernie cupped her wife's face and gave her the longest kisses she had everdone.

Chapter Text

Bernie and serena sat and and talked about their hopes for their children,what they hoped they could or would achieve,what would be their chosen career,would any of their children want study medicine like their parents or would they follow Bernie in to the army.
Serena nestled her head on Bernie's shoulder's, what are you thinking about love,bernie asked,just thinking about Wednesday, hey we still have all day today together remember,so I thought that maybe,my gorgeous wife and beautiful children would like to go out for the day,maybe shopping, or shopping, or shopping,serena looked at her,what do we need to go shopping for Bernie,well I would like to buy my beautiful wife and children each a present before I go away to the barracks on Wednesday.
What about getting all your kit ready though Bernie , well I was rather hoping that we could get that sorted before the twins wake up,what you mean do it now,why not, Bernie asked ?
You want me to help get your kit all sorted out,why not Bernie asked,then you can see everything that I need to take when I go on tour, and if you behave yourself, I might just need to try out my senior officer dress suit,serena looked at her, I get to see you in your senior officer's uniform only if you promise to behave yourself.They went upstairs to start to gather all of Bernie's kit and put it neatly on the bed where Bernie started to put it into her large army issue holdall, her dress suits were put into coat hangers and then put inside uniform zip up covers. Bernie than asked serena to go and make her a cup of tea,she went and made the drink and then she went into their living room, where she had the surprise of her life.
Bernie was standing in front of her in her senior officer's dress uniform.
Fucking hell Bernie, you are so bloody hot in that uniform,serena inspected her uniform with a fine tooth comb, she stopped and just admired the gorgeous woman standing in front of her,her eyes filled with tears ,darling what is the matter,just seeing you looking so resplendent, tough, and so much in charge of operation whiskey,i am so immensely proud of you my darling, Bernie removed her cap ,placed it on Serena's head and kissed her like kissing was going out of fashion,only for their kiss to be broken by their children, who had decided that it was their feeding time, serena looked at Bernie sorry major,but I need to see to the children,ok I will help you mrs.wolfe ok what about your uniform,ok I shall take the jacket and shirt off for you if you want me to darling, serena opened her pyjama top to feed Cameron first, when Cameron had taken his feed, Bernie winded him so serena could feed charlotte, once charlotte had taken her feed, serena winded her,then she changed them both,whilst Bernie got out of her officer's uniform and hung it up on a coat hanger and placed it inside a zip up cover.
Later that morning as agreed Bernie phoned eton college about putting Cameron's name down for a place there when he turned 12,the deputy headmaster told Bernie that the application form and a prospectus would be sent out within the next 6 weeks,my wife will have fill the form in and return it to you as I will be going on a 8 month tour of duty on Friday the 8th july that will be fine no problem major wolfe, she then phoned about charlotte going to Cheltenham ladies college, again she was told that the application form and prospectus would take about 6 weeks to arrive, that is no problem.
Once they had had their breakfast, they dressed the twins put them in their car seats,serena got into the passenger seat ,Bernie in the driver's side, she drove them into knightsbridge,where serena asked why knightsbridge darling,because my love that department store pointing to harrods,and we do have an appointment in the jewellery department

Serena closed the front door,walked back into the living room,let out a large sigh,and began to cry, 'come on serena,we will and we will be strong all 3 of us' she thought to herself.she cleaned the living room up, feed the twins and put them to bed for the evening,she went and had a shower,towelled herself down,put her pyjama's on went back down stairs,and poured herself a large shiraz.
She settled down on the settee,and she kept looking at her mobile phone, longing,waiting for her beloved Bernie to phone and say she got to the barracks safely please Bernie,just phone I need to know you are at the barracks she thought.

THURSDAY 7TH JULY 2000.
08.00hrs,in the operations office, were assembled all of the senior officers i.e generals,colonels,brigadiers,lieutenants,and sergeants, and of course the most important person the one who would be in overall command of operation whiskey major Berenice wolfe all waiting for the briefing to start.
Good morning all,announced brigadier james Thompson smythe,are all the officers assembled ready colonel adams replied yes everyone is here sir,right then let's begin
Firstly may I offer my congratulations to major Bernie wolfe, on her promotion,and the fact that the two of us managed to trick her wife into thinking she was going to someone else's wedding,however it really was her own wedding to Bernie, and lastly on behalf of us all may we all offer our congratulations on the birth of your twins, Bernie eye's were filling up with tears of joy thank you sir as she approached him to shake his hand, well let's just hope that you and your beautiful wife have a couple more 'little baby wolfe's' he joked,well we hope to increase our little family just as soon as this tour is over sir,she proudly announced.
Right the objective of operation whiskey is to achieve the following.
1 take out the top officials who control isis.
2 seek out and destroy the head quarters.
3 take out as many of their so called 'soldiers'
4 take control as many cities as possible.
5 release as many hostages as possible.
6 show a visible prescence to show isis that they will and can be beaten'
7 attempt to capture the city of Kabul and hand it back to the civillians'
Those are the objectives anything else we can achieve will be a bonus,he said,now the officer in charge of this operation is major wolfe whatever she say's is law do you understand,they all nodded yes sir,they all replied
Primarily major wolfe Is a trained medic and surgeon,so her first port of call will be to oversee the staffing at 3 hospitals,1, in Kabul.1.in helmand province, and 1,in laskagar.
She will only be at any one of the 3 hospitals,if there has been a car bombing or something equally just as bad,but let us all hope it never comes to that.
When she is not at the hospitals she will be expected to go out on patrol with her soldiers,that was something Bernie really enjoyed going out on patrol as it gave her a chance to get to know the troops even better and strike up new friendships and hopefully build a good rapport with the soldiers who were out on patrol with Bernie.
As you have all gathered by now this next deployment is to Afghanistan, and it is one of the longest these soldiers will do, I understand that normally a tour last 6 months, but with our troops badly deflated it has been decided, that this tour is 8 months,which all the officers knew.
Bernie as I have explained you will be in control of 3 hospitals,however,there will be someone else overseeing the hospitals Major Edward Campbell, he is American so you will need to liase with him from time to time ok yes sir, was bernies reply.
Now then this briefing is now finished,the troops will be briefed later this afternoon,so I would appreciate it if no one mentioned what we have discussed with the troops just yet.
What are we allowed to tell our partner sir Bernie asked,just the departure time,where we are flying from,and our destination, was her reply.
The briefing was all over by 11.25hrs,as all the senior officers left the operations room, the brigadier called Bernie back, so how do you feel about being in charge of the operation, nervous,but at the same time proud,because you and the army have put your faith in me to oversee the entire operation sir, well I for one cannot think of anyone better to run the operation,and I know that all the troops are happy that you are in charge,because a lot of these young soldiers,have heard so much about you and they hold you in such high esteem,the same as a lot of us senior officers.
Thank you for those kind words sir, it really means a lot to hear those words from such a higher ranking officer, well Bernie,like you I have to speak the truth and I wish I was a young soldier going out on my first tour with you at the helm of the operation, because I for one cannot think of a better role model, you are the embodiment of how dedicated a soldier you are you always look out for others without scant regard for yourself or any injuries you may sustain, and yes I will gladly repeat of all of that to your wife ,she will be joining you for lunch I trust,she will be joing us sir and she will also be bringing the twins with her excellent news at long last I can see your son and daughter,however I have already been told how gorgeous they are,bernie smiled thank you sir,bernie please stop calling me sir call me james after all we are both senior officers only rank separates us.

With what James had said to Bernie still going round In bernies head,she headed for her room,where she changed into her officers afternoon dress suit,she checked that she looked ok, after all serena was visiting her and she always went to great pains to make sure everything was just so,even making sure there was not a strand of hair out of place,she then positioned her cap ,with one last look she smoothed down her jacket made sure her medal bar was level so serena could marvel at her decorations that she had been awarded throughout her army career,it was just a pity that the twins were not old enough to appreciate just how smart, she looked,at her watch 12.05pm.
There was knock on her door,she opened it,only to find a young private, what is the matter she asked the young soldier started to begin by saying how proud he was to be going out on tour with Bernie at the helm,she replied thank you,but what is the matter,sorry,but there is a lady asking for you major,a lady yes he replied well you had better take me to where this lady is then, with that they walked over to the senior officers mess, major wolfe this is the lady who is asking for you,what is your name soldier Bernie asked him, private simon Jackson well private Jackson let me introduce you to Mrs. serena wolfe, my wife,sorry major I did not know,next time somebody wants to see me or any other senior officer just remember to ask for their names ok sorry major, mrs.wolfe with that flea in his ear he quickly went back to his barracks.
Darling how wonderful to see you,the pleasure is all mine major,i can assure you of that. She peered into the double buggy to see their babies sleeping so quietly.
With that Bernie informed her that Andrews wife Annabel was looking after most of the officers children,and would serena objected to Annabel minding the twins whilst they sat with the other officers for their lunch,serena said that she did not have any objections,just as long as when the meal was finished they would be able to go and collect them so they could spend their last few hours together as a family before Bernie left for afghanistan
Have you found out any details sweetheart yes my love, firstly, we are being deployed to Afghanistan,serena cried oh my god no not there anywhere but not there please Bernie cradled her wife in her arms princess I promise you we will be safe I have never let you down so far ,have I,no you have not I am sorry darling shhh it is ok to be upset,and we leave at 06.00hrs tomorrow morning from brize Norton and I need to tell them whether you and the twins will be there or not,bernie,do you really need to ask me that question of course we will be there,ok I will arrange a car for you then,but I do not have a return date as yet.
A couple of senior officer walked over to Bernie and serena,James, Andrew, Charles let me introduce my wife,to you mrs.serena wolfe bloody hell Bernie we know you said your wife was beautiful but,she is totally stunning as well as beautiful,if I say anything like that to serena she just tells me to stop being silly,was bernies reply, with that they all peered into the buggy, oh my god your children are as equally beautiful as your wife,thank you serena and Bernie said in unison,Andrew will your good lady wife be ok to look after the twins for us of course,she is so looking forward to minding the 2 newest junior soldiers. would you like to go and take them over to Annabel then, yes ok then serena said, when they got to the crèche,there was about 8 under 5 year olds and a couple of 1 year olds, Bernie and serena entered the crèche and Andrew announced that Annabel was a midwife at the Portland and loved to look after children well after all her and Andrew had 6 children of their own,so the twins were in safe hands.
Bernie asked Andrew if it would be possible for a car to collect serena and the twins in the morning so they could see Bernie off on her next tour,it has already been taken care of,oh they said the car will arrive at 03.00 hrs to take you and your family to raf brize Norton,and and you will be able to have maybe an hour and half or maybe 2 hours with Bernie before we leave.
12.50 all officers and their respective partners were announced into the officers mess,they were escorted to their seats and handed a menu waiters poured everyone a glass of wine.
the menu was as follows.
The starter.prawns in tempura batter with asparagus spears.
The main course.steak with garlic mash and seasonal vegetables.
The dessert.Apple pie,creme brulee,or chocolate fudge cake, or cheesecake.
To finish a selection of cheeses and port.
Once the lunch was finished most of the male officers went and had a couple games of snooker,to which Bernie and serena were invited, but they both admitted that they wanted to spend time together and with their babies,ok Andrew told them,serena added please do not think that we are ungrateful for the offer,but this is bernies longest tour and I really want to be with her and my family,james replied well that is fine please do not worry we do understand about these situations we may be men but we do care.
They went to the crèche to get their children,have they been any trouble Bernie asked,i did not know that they were here they have been so well behaved was annabels response.
They made their way to bernies room where they would spend their last few hours as a family before she had to leave,once they got into her room they could not keep their hand off each other, they kissed with such a passion that serena nearly fetched blood on her lips,bernie had put her hands up inside serenas blouse and started play with her large chest,and started to roll her nipples, serena had her hands full by grabbing at bernies tight arse,after a frenetic half hour of kissing and groping each other they stood and looked at each other ,both crying,bernie because the most important people in her life would be leaving in less than 3 hours and she would be on her way to having an early night due to the fact that all troops were leaving the barracks at 01.00hrs so they would be at raf brize Norton for about 03.30hrs,and all their kit and personal belongings could be placed in the cargo hold of the plane that would take them to Afghanistan.

Chapter Text

18.00hrs,there was a knock on bernies door reluctantly she opened it Major wolfe I am sorry to be the one to tell you that Mrs.wolfe has 30 minutes before she has to leave,ok thank you was Bernie's anguished reply,she turned around only to find serena in floods of tears,oh my love please look at me Bernie gently lifted her wife's face,i will be returning to you and our two children in 8 months,i know it seems an eternity know but these months will just fly by just promise me that you look after yourself and the children,serena nodded ok she said so quietly.
They wrapped their arms around each other and held and kissed each other for what seemed an eternity,but it really was only 5 minutes, Bernie pulled away from serena,leaned over to kiss Cameron and charlotte,don't worry little ones I will be back soon,so you just behave for your mummy,and when I come back,we will have a family holiday,so you need to tell mummy where we are going ok ,but I promise you I will be back so soon,with presents for all of you.
She got up and looked at serena,darling I promise you just as soon as the internet is connected I will skype you,ok and when I get to the camp I will send you a text message,to let you know that I have landed safely,thank you bernie long as I know you have got there safely.
18.30,bernie helped serena on with her jacket,she got her handbag,put it on her shoulder, they looked at each other for the last time,well I guess I will see you when you return my love, no serena you will see me in the morning before I go,then they kissed again ,they left Bernie's room,she escorted her wife and children to the staff car park where the car to take all 3 back home was waiting,they put the twins in to the car seats,bernie gave serena another kiss,so I get to see my 3 favourite people at least for a couple of hours in the morning,serena got into the car,waved as the jaguar drove out of the barracks she turned around Andrew put his hand on her shoulder,it will get easier bernie trust me it will.
Come on let's go and have a drink in the office Andrew told her,i apologise for getting upset Andrew, Bernie told him,if you had not have gotten upset,i would have thought that you had no feelings for your wife or children,it is called being able to show your emotions it is nothing to be embarrassed about.
He poured them both a large whiskey,so are you nervous,how do you feel about being in overall command,
he asked,nervous,apprehensive,wondering will I be able to fullfill my role exactly,after all the most senior officers must have faith in me to honour me with such a privelige of being in command,actually Bernie,i suggested it Andrew told her,we cannot think of any one who can handle such a bloody tough ask, but we all know that you thrive whilst under pressure and that is why I suggested you for the leadership,however on saying that you will have the support of myself,James, lieutenant colonel Charles morrisson, I am so honoured to know that I will have such of the highest ranking officers watching my back, well you have done it often enough for us so we are just repaying the favour.
She left the officers mess at 19.50hrs went back to her room,where just over an hour ago her wife and children had been,she could still smell serena's perfume lingering in her room,the nice sweet smell of their twins just those fragrances bought a smile to her lips, thinking about the day she returns ,how big the children would be,would they be crawling, would they be teething, would they have cut any baby teeth, all those thoughts made her laugh, and then she thought about them trying for baby number 3,how sexy serena looked when she was pregnant ,her curves got even curvier [if that is possible she thought] and how large her chest would have got bigger,bernie thought if they got any bigger she would loose her head between them.
21.00hrs Bernie had just got into bed,when her mobile phone started to ring at last it was her beloved serena,good evening my love,and just how are you, Bernie just to hear your voice it makes me smile and just be happy,glad I can be of help to you mrs.wolfe,any how is everthing ok babies fed ,bathed,changed and sleeping quietly,and you my love,bernie I am sorry for getting upset when we parted earlier oh sweetheart,please do not apologise it is called being able to show your emotions and never think that you need to apologise you never need to say sorry to me.
Sweetheart, Fletch asked if we wanted him to look after the twins when I come and see you off tomorrow,bernies heart sank,thinking she would not see her precious babies before she left,but I told him that I am taking them with me to wave you off in the morning,you're still bringing them ,but of course darling,i could not live with myself If I did not bring them and for you to cuddle them before you leave in the morning,oh serena my darling thank you so much that means a great deal to me.anyway serena said I will say cheerio for now and I will see you soon yes my love that you certainly will,she then hung up and tried to get some sleep which she did not.

Chapter Text

22.00hrs, Bernie went and had a shower,happy in the knowledge,that serena and her children would be coming to see her in a couple of hours time that bought a smile to her face.
Once she had showered,and blow dried her hair,she then began to get her khakhi coloured combat fatigues on and as usual she stood in front of her mirror,making sure that not one part of her uniform was out of place she then plut her beret on,laughing to herself,at the time when serena tried it on and she could not get it to sit properly on her head, when she was dressed in her uniform, she sat and thought to herself.'please let me get through this tour and deliver me back to my wife and family'.
23.00 hrs, Bernie was invited to take a drink with all officers who were going on tour with her,they were all talking between themselves,until lieutenant colonel Charles morrisson stood up, now chaps I will try to make this speech as short as possible, now we all know the objectives we all know what we need to do as a unit,look out for each other and before you know it we will all be back home with our wives and families,now major wolfe is in command however she does have back up if she needs it,which I very much doubt as she is more than capable of commanding a unit and looking after her troops, now just one more thing and then I will shut up to which everyone just laughed,on a more serious note.
Would you all please raise your glasses to Major Berenice wolfe,senior commanding officer of operation whiskey and I have discovered after checking army records for the r.a.m.b
she is also the youngest soldier to be promoted to the rank of major ever, so once again I ask you to all raise your glasses to major Bernie wolfe everyone applauded Bernie,how she wished her beloved serena was there to hear the lieutenant colonel make that magnificent speech, now major we would like a speech ' I will try my best but speeches are not my best forte, however I will try my best firstly thank lieutenant colonel morrisson,i would like to thank you for those kind words, and I hope that I can repay you all by commanding the operation to the very best of my abilities,making sure all troops morale is kept up, even in the darkest of hours,and even in the long time that they will be away from their loved ones,once again I thank you all for placing your faith in me to command the operation and I am also honoured to know that I am the youngest major in the r.a.m.b so thank you,with that she raised her glass and said well here is to a successful tour of duty, everyone cheered,and the all clinked their glasses with each other.
00.00hrs.all the troops were assembled ready to get on the coaches and be driven to r.a.f brize Norton,bernie stood in front of the troops that were now in her command right then she said 'for some of you this will be your first tour of duty,there will be good days as well as bad days,days where you will be thinking when the hell does this tour finish, I know It was the same for all of us sometime or another same as the other senior officers have all thought it it is no shame for you to want to sit and have a bloody good cry, we have all been there,when we all wish that we could just see a family member, whether it be your mum or dad,or if like me you have children just to see their faces those images will get you through so I want each and every single one of you to know and understand that it does not matter whether it be 01.00 in the morning or 13.00hrs my door will always be open to each and every single one of you ok no matter what you need to talk about please do not think that I won't listen because I will,and help and advise where possible do you all understand, with that they all replied yes major wolfe and saluted her.
00.45hrs,the coaches had arrived to take everyone to the air base where they where leaving from.
15 miles away a lady was sitting on the end of her bed waiting for the time to go faster so she could see her beloved wife just one last time before she leaves british soil to go out on tour of duty in Afghanistan, serena had been crying counting down the hours, counting the minutes checking the babies changing bag time after time,making sure she had packed 4 bottles, nappies, bibs, and whatever else was needed,she had already showered and decided what she was going to wear,she checked her handbag to make sure she had put the small sized photo album in there,it contained pictures of Bernie and serena when they first got together,pictures of their wedding day, pictures of when the twins were first born, photo's of bernies promotion ceremony.
02.30 the first of the coaches arrived at r.a.f brize Norton, all the troops dismounted the coach and were told to make their way to the refectory where food and hot drinks were waiting fo them,by 03.00hrs all the coaches taking the soldiers to the air base had arrived and they were informed that their relations should be with them within the hour
serena and the twins were well on the way to the air base,bernie looked at her watch 03.20,don't worry Bernie she will be here Andrew announced,hopefully you should get at least 2 hours before we leave,bernie asked him if his wife and children would be there to see him off yes Annabel and the 3 youngest ones will be here,please forgive me for asking, but how old are your children Bernie asked,well he said

laura she will be 15 next may
Andrew junior will be 13 in december

I never thought that your youngest child was as young as 3, I imagined your children to be maybe a little older,well there you go,annabel and I thought our baby days were over until we were out and my wife thought that she had wet herself, but evidently she had not,and I did not have tome to get her to hospital so joshuawas born in the back of my car he proudly announced and the 2 youngest,after I came home after I did tours of duty to Syria, and Greece, oh ok so are any of your children following in your footsreps and joining the army she asked,the 3 eldest want to but we need to sit and talk about when we get back from this tour.
Suddenly there was a cheer from the troops it would appear that the families have arrived we will speak later Bernie ok certainly Andrew,he quickly found his wife and 3 youngest children,bernie looked every where serena where was she Bernie kept scanning to see if she could her beloved wife and children where were they she thought,had she had second thoughts about seeing Bernie off,were the babies ok was serena ok her mind racing with endless possibilities,suddenly, how many more times must I tell you that when you have your army fatigues you should carry a government health warning darling,she turned round at last. she thought where were you I was starting to panic, well if I am not going to see your magnificent,fit and toned body for 8 months surely I am allowed to admire it well Bernie said since you put it like that how can I refuse you such a request my love they kissed each other well what the hell Bernie thought others are kissing their girlfriends or wife so why shouldn't i.
The next 2 hours went so quickly,at 05.30 Bernie was told that they were starting to board the plane,they had 10 mins left before Bernie for 8 months to Afghanistan,well my love that is my call, serena gave her the photo album,take care my darling, promise me you will come back in one piece, serena my love I promise you I will return in one piece,i will not try any heroics and just as soon as the internet is sorted out will skype you,and I will send a text message as soon as I land my love,with that she kissed their babies gently bye bye my darlings,i will be back before you know it,she looked at the woman who had done so much for her my love take care remember that I love you and you ain't never getting rid of me and when I return we will try for baby number 3 but more importantly we will have some time together just the 4 of us with that Bernie got her jacket and walked out of the refectory along with the other senior officers,she turned around and waved to her family for the last time until this tour finishes

Serena watched tearfully as the airplane took of with her precious Bernie on board,hoping that the next 8 months would go so quickly, the driver approached serena mrs.wolfe are you ready to go home yet,she nodded yes,and as they took the short walk back to the car she looked to the sky but the plane was gone far from her view. She arrived back home at around 07.15hrs the first thing she did was to put the babies in their moses baskets whilst she sat and had a cup of tea and some toast, she sat in the living room just crying wondering where the camp was, would she be stationed at camp bastion, or at another camp would she cope with the heat [Bernie hated the warm weather,she was happiest in winter with rain sleet,snow ] but Bernie being Bernie she could and would cope with anything anyone could throw at her even warm weather she dried her tears 'come on serena you have to be strong for yourself as well as the children' she thought,she went upstairs and changed into a pair of jeans and a t shirt, and started to clean the house from top to bottom,only stopping when the children woke for either feeding or changing,once she had attended to the twins and put them back down into their cots she carried on with changing all the bed linen, she put bernies favourite duvet set on their matrimonial bed it was a reversible one one side was blue and white stripes and the other side was just navy blue pillow cases were navy blue as well, she changed it because she needed to feel close to Bernie and though it had been washed she could still smell Bernie's deodorant on it and it gave serena a closeness that she had never felt before, once that was finished she sat down and looked at her mobile phone, maybe it was a little to soon to hope that Bernie might phone she thought,perhaps her flight was still in the air, or had it landed and they were being driven to their camp,her mind started wandering about her wife,only for her concentration to be disturbed by her phone ringing,she looked at the number 'Bernie is that you,yes darling, I landed about an hour ago, just got to the camp unpacked my kit and personel effects and well I thought I need to speak to holby city's most sexiest surgeon and tell her that I love her and her babies Bernie what babies are you refering to exactly serena laughed my favourite 2 babies of course,and their names please ok then Cameron and Charlotte was bernies reply,oh so its not your other babies then as serena laughed no but I will make sure that I play with those babies just as soon as I return home will you now as they both laughed,sweetheart it is so good to hear you laugh, and I know that the last few days have taken it out of you but please believe me I will be back before you know it my darling Bernie said, just promise me you will come back home in one piece to me and our babies, I will sweetheart,she then blew serena several kisses down the phone, which serena thanked her for,my darling I need to ring off now as I still have some uniforms to get put away, I will try to phone every evening if I can my princess ok , serena replied I will look forward to it my lovr with that she blew Bernie several kisses down the phone then they hung up.
Well at least I know that she is safe was all that serena wished for and at least she had heard her beautiful voice once again.
The rest of the afternoon was a quiet affair she just listened to the radio,only for her peace and quiet to be disturbed, by someone knocking her front door,she was not expecting anyone so she looked through the spy hole, and saw some very familiar faces,she opened the door, well we thought that you might need cheering up,announced raf, she called the 4 of them in there was raf, fletch morven and jasmine mrs. wolfe we heard that Bernie went a day earlier is that true, serena looked to the floor and nodded her head,yes Bernie left this morning for her 8 month tour of duty to Afghanistan, oh serena, look we all know Bernie, she will be ok nothing will hurt her, she is indestructible fletch told her.
She offered everyone a hot drink or if they wanted something a little bit stronger,she had some beers in the fridge or wine or whatever they wanted,fletch and raf both had beers morven and jasmine had a cup of coffee, serena had a glass of shiraz,
So what will Bernie be doing out in Afghanistan they asked, well she is in overall command of the entire operation, she is also in charge of the staffing and other admin based duties at 3 hospitals,so she got a shed load of responsibility then serena, but her superiors think and know that she will cope with the pressure that comes with such a task,so then you must be a very proud wife Jasmine piped up, oh most certainly serena beamed from ear to ear at the thought of her wife being in complete control of one of the army's biggest operations to date.

Later that afternoon serena saw her guests off, and returned to what she did best, being mummy to their babies, but Bernie was not there to help wind the first twin serena had fed, well I will just have to do it myself, thankfully the twins were no problem in fact since they were just 7 day's old they went through the night no problem's but Bernie and serena both put their concerns to the health visitor who checked on all 4 of them for the first 10 days after their birth just to make sure that they were all coming to terms with the fact that 2 had now become 4, and that there were no problems with Bernie and serena adjusting to the fact that they were now parents to twins instead of the one child they though that they were expecting.
Serena looked forward to bernies phone call every night,sometimes they spoke for 10 minutes other times it could be as long as 30 minutes serena never objected just as long as they got to speak to each other however long the phone call may or not may last.
7 days into the tour Bernie rather unexpectedly phoned serena in the afternoon sweetheart what is wrong serena begged her to say what the problem was, serena please listen to me Bernie was not laughing or joking, serena there is something that I really need to tell you my love.
Please just tell me Bernie, have you been injured or anything worse, no love please listen to what I have to say, I have relinquished all control of the hospitals to that man Campbell, because I am better suited to frontline medicine,darling please explain that to me ,what is frontline medicine, basically I will be fighting on the frontline and treating any injured soldiers as and where possible,mt god, you are on the bloody frontline of war serena cried down the phone at her, yes that is exactly whay I am trying to tell you sweetheart so pleasemake sure that the red phone is easily accessible if you ever need to use it [the red phone was installed when Bernie found out she was running operation whiskey] why do I need to do that,bernie serena pleaded Bernie just told her 'just in case they need to contact you urgently' oh no Bernie she wailed please tell me that you and your troops are well protected ,yes we are darling but, just if they ever need to contact you please be prepared for the worst.Serena calmed down so it is just a safety measure, then she asked Bernie yes it is just a safety measure but nothing will hurt me or my troops, that much I promise you my love,well as you have made that promise to me I promise you this then. You and all the troops come back then I will be a very happy wife knowing that you have protected them,just like you protect me and our children she told Bernie.
The weeks flew by so Bernie was right about one thing, time going so quickly,they were now in October,the twins were almost 3 months old, growing a such a rate that they would out grow their clothes and sleepwear, she kept thinking, the phone calls from Bernie were at the same time every evening between 20.30hrs and 21.00hrs unless she was out on a night time patrol, then she would phone her just as soon as she woke up which was normally between 13.00hrs and 13.30hrs.She would then spend the next few hours planning the next days routes and targets and trying to locate the places where the hostages were being held, and trying to get them out as well as looking out for her troops.
Saturday 22nd of October.
Serena as usual had her eye on the news listening out for any information about her precious Bernie and the operation that she was over seeing,suddenly the the news caster announce that there was some breaking news from Afghanistan,the reporter then said the following statement 'it has just been revealed that major Berenice wolfe ,has saved at least upto 40 member of her brigade after they were attacked in the early hour of this morning, without showing any safety for her self she threw hand grenades and used her machine gun to save her soldiers from certain death, major wolfe is the army's most highly decorated female serving soldier,however major wolfe was not injured herself during this selfless action in saving her fellow soldiers,we will have more about this breaking news as it happens.
Her mobile phone started to ring out everyone who knew Bernie and serena where there to offer serena words of comfort, but the only voice she wanted to hear was Bernie's. The red phone started to ring, she rushed over to answer it,serena, I am fine darling are you there serena please answer me , pleaded Bernie.yes I am here sweetheart,what the hell happened we were about to be ambushed so I threw a couple of hand grenades,when that did not work I used my gun, so I could save my troops, we will all be given a couple of days off ,then it is back to the frontline, you promised me that you would be ok, sweetheheart I promise you I am ok I swear just a little shaken up if you want the truth, now how are you and our babies, typical Bernie,always thinking of everyone else, darling we are fine, the twins are growing at such a rate they will both need new clothes before much longer.
with that Bernie hung up, and got her calendar out counting down the days to Christmas eve, all being well she would give her wife and babies a present that serena could only dream of.

Chapter Text

Bernie had been informed earlier in October, that herself and the soldiers from the r.a.m.b would be home in time for Christmas,as they were being deployed somewhere elsewhere where they were needed,but Bernie asked what about operation whiskey, the the operation that she was in command of, who would take over,or was she being doing a bad job of leading from the front.
She was called in to see the lieuetenent colonel,who explained, that the army was building a new trauma hospital in kiev and that they wanted Bernie to oversee the logistics of making sure that it was equipped with the best equipment money could by,and that she had to cherry pick her best team of medics to help her make sure that everything was running on time and that it would be open on time, and that she would be running the trauma unit for 6 months.
Bernie wanted to understand why did they want her to oversee the opening up of a trauma unit in kiev and not see out her time out in Afghanistan he told 'well quiet simply Bernie you are one of the army's finest trauma surgeons as well as being one of our finest doctors, and this trauma unit will be right up your street, because you thrive under pressure and not only that, but the orders have come from an higher authority,who like many of us believe that you are more worthy of running a busy trauma unit ,then being out on the frontline,but I enjoy working on the fronline serving queen and country, it is what I signed up for sir, was her response. Believe me Bernie I do understand what you are saying but we have seen you not only fighting out on the frontline saving your soldiers, operating wherever you need to regardless of what is going on around you, nothing frightens you. you are the most fantastic surgeon the r.a.m.b has ever had and we believe that your expertise would be put to better use running a new trauma unit for a couple of months,and once it has be come established as a centre of excellence for trauma surgery and overseen by you, we will then bring you back home.When would the secondment begin she asked him you will fly out on the 3rd January, and hopefully you should return in the first week of june [well she had to be back for the 23rd as that was the day the twins would turn 1] but what I will tell you Bernie,if you choose to take the secondment, it will be classed as though you are still on tour, and at least you get Christmas at home with your family.
With the thought of having christmas at home with her wife and family was something they her and serena had been looking forward to until they found about Bernie's tour of duty to Afghanistan,ok then sir I will accept the secondment she told him,right then Bernie I will get the paperwork sorted out for you, now you will be flown out Afghanistan on the 22nd December so you need to have all your kit and personel effects all packed up by the 20th at least, and we will have a complete handover of what has been accomplished, and what objectives are waiting to be achieved.'ok sir ,he reminded her not to tell any one about what was happening as only a very few officers knew about the new trauma unit.
She started counting down the days until she would be flown out of Afghanistan and back home to her beloved serena and their babies.
When Bernie had saved 40 of her regiment she was ordered to take a couple of days off sick ,the same as the soldiers she single handly saved,it was during these 2 sick days that she started to countdown the day until she was on her way home,and she was also thinking of away to surprise serena when she got home early.
The weeks flew by so quickly, every night she would phone serena and ask how she was, how were the children how much had the grown were they crawling yet. Serena also asked Bernie how things were going out in Afghanistan was the weather too hot, how was she coping with the heat.
The day that Bernie had longed for was soon upon her, she was woken at 05.00 hrs the flight home was scheduled to leave Kabul airport at 07.30hrs and she needed to be on that flight, she had packed up all her uniforms, including her senior officers dress, she had gathered all her personal effects, packed them ready to go back home, the handover had taken place some 3 days earlier colonel atkins would now be running the operation,bernie walked to the officer's mess to say goodbye to her comrades and fellow officers, each and every single one congratulated her on what a sterling job she had done in leading operation whiskey, but she now had a new task to begin in the start of the new year,and that was to oversee the setting up of the new trauma unit in kiev which she was alittle nervous about, because she had worked in trauma situations before never asked to oversee the actual setting up,of such a unit.
She boarded the plane at 06.55 hrs,just another 35 minutes then she would be on her way home,home to her wife and family, the thought bought a smile to her lips, tears to her eyes.
The plane landed at raf brize Norton, there was an official army car waiting for her to take her back home, how would serena react to seeing Bernie home so soon,moreover would she be at home or out shopping for last minute presents, so Bernie decided to phone her.
'hello gorgeous how are you today, Bernie I have just got back home from getting the last minute bits and pieces Bernie smiled typical serena leaving everything to the very end,any way and how are you my sexy major, yeah I am good thank you just missing my beautiful wife and my gorgrous twin babies, but apart from that I am good was Bernie's reply sweetheart I am sorry Cameron has just woken up,give me 20 minutes and call me back please sweetheart, ok my love was Bernie's reply.
Bernie asked the driver his name I beg your pardon major what is your Christian name please it is Robert, he replied, ok Robert this is what I need you to do for me, when we get to my house I need you to go and ring the door bell, and announce that major wolfe has asked me to deliver your Christmas present,right he said but where will you be major, I will be hiding around the corner yes I understand major, just as the turned right to drive up to their house,bernie asked him to stop and turn off the engine as she wanted serena to believe she was still thousands of miles away in Afghanistan.
Bernie got her mobile phone out and called serena back,how is our little man doing now sweetheart, he was just hungry so I fed him and now he is sleeping soundly just like his sister,bless them, now serena please listen to me carefully please,bernie what is wrong please tell me darling there is nothing wrong I promise you, now I have sent you and the children a couple of Christmas presents, now Robert, who is an official designated driver will be bringing the gifts that I have bought you and I have spoken to him given him our address and hopefully he will be with you shortly ok sweetheart, that is all I wanted to tell you, with that she let out a rather large sigh thank heaven's everything is ok, I just wish that you were here with us, darling will be back home soon, the next few months will fly by I promise, with that they both hung up,
Robert drove nearer to their house but not that close because Bernie needed to get out without serena seeing her, she got out and very quickly walked up the path to their home, she signalled to Robert to make his way down to the front door once in front of the front door Bernie gave him the nod to ring the doorbell serena opened the door and asked her'
'Mrs. Serena Wolfe, yes that is correct why what is wrong. nothing Major wolfe has asked me to deliver your Christmas present, serena was looking , when she looked to her right hand side and she was greeted with ' merry Christmas my love, serena could not believe it Bernie back home Bernie gave her the biggest hug they had ever shared as well as the biggest kiss ever only to be interrupted by Robert asking where to leave Bernie's uniforms and belongings just put them in the hall please Robert, to which he did,will there be anything else major wolfe, no thank you Robert, however please don't run off as she went to her wallet and pulled out a 20.00 pound note, there you go have a drink on me please ,thank you majoe, mrs.wolfe have a merry Christmas, believe me Robert we will won't we darling,with that Bernie pushed the door closed with her foot.

Bernie had been back home about 3 hours, she had showered, had some lunch, helped serena feed and bath their children,now at last it was just serena and Bernie sitting together,on their large settee,both had a drink, Bernie had a glass of white wine serena as usual had a shiraz,they were just sitting together happy in the knowledge that at least Bernie was home for at least a fortnight, serena and the children could go and visit Bernie while she was on her secondment to kiev.
Serena asked Bernie if she wanted to join her in the bath, with a glint in her eye, Bernie knew what she was unable to resist her charms,but I have had a shower already,bernie told her,well you know that our bath times are important to me serena was trying to wear her down into submitting to having a bath with her, eventually she gave in and ran upstairs to start running the bath,she poured some foam bath,which was Serena's favourite, Bernie started to take her pyjama,s off until she turned around to see serena standing in front of her naked,bernie turned the taps off and scooped serena up and took her into their bedroom, once they got inside their bedroom they could not keep their hands off each other,bernie had got serena on the bed she was laying on top of serena, darling please I need you to go and wear the strap-on and give me a bloody good seeing too, Bernie went into their en-suite,strapped the harness to her self, and inserted the dildo ,on to the harness, she walked back into their bedroom,serena went up to Bernie, started to kiss Bernie from the neck down, when her mouth reached the dildo she got on her knee's and started to suck it, with her lips sucking the head of the dildo,her hands wrapped around it she begged Bernie to let her deep throat the dildo, Bernie duly agreed and pushed it further inside Serena's mouth,her hips rocking backwards and forwards as though she was fucking her mouth.
Bernie slowly withdrew the dildo from her mouth, serena looked at her, now get that fucking big cock of yours inside me now serena begged,with that Bernie got on top of her opened her legs to see her pussy it was soaking wet,bernie lowered her head to give her a good licking before a good fucking,she started to thrust her tongue all around Serena's clit she then entered 3 fingers inside serenaand thrusted them in and out,bernie oh god I am so fucking close she thrust her fingers harder and faster inside serena,she let out a cry and Bernie's hand was covered in her cum,she rubbed it all over the dildo, she then entered Serena's pussy with a dildo that was covered in her own cum,if you want me to fuck you you know what you need to do for me,within 10 seconds she had put her hands on the headboard,bernie loved to see her tits bouncing around whilst she was fucking her.
Bernie was thrusting the cock in and out of serena, who was moaning that she needed more cock inside her with that Bernie penetrated her further than before,oh my darling serena moaned please go harder and faster, Bernie obliged her wife by going faster,with out trying to hurt her,oh my god darling Bernie knew her wife had cum,she leaned down and kissed serena so hard, when they stopped kissing Bernie pulled out, Bernie that was brilliant, well we have both waited 5 bloody long months for that sex.
Bernie took the harness off and washed the dildo dried it off and put it back in the en suite,she got into bed, she wrapped her arm around serena who went to sleep with the biggest gin on her face.

Chapter Text

Bernie and Serena,woke at 06.00hrs and they just lay in their bed entwined in each other,talking excitedly about their first Christmas as a family, this was something that they had both been looking forward to ever since the twins had been born,but when Bernie was told that she would be going out on tour they both thought that they would have to wait until next Christmas for a proper family Christmas.
Bernie wrapped her arm around Serena's shoulder, darling, I need to go shopping today,but I don't know how long I will be gone for,serena asked why she needed to go shopping, well I need to get my gorgeous wife something very special for her Christmas present, and I also need to get our munchkins something just as nice for Christmas was bernies reply,to which serena told her 'well I think we all had the best present bought home to us yesterday' oh Bernie said and do you all like the present I bought home yesterday,well Bernie my love,it was more than I could have wished for,so I was so happy with the present you bought home yesterday, Bernie kissed her, well you still need something to open in the morning my love,serena joked well if you insist I open a present, I do not care what it is because I know that it is sent with love from you sweetheart.
They went downstairs at about 06.30hrs Bernie made them both a hot drink, serena expressed some milk by using a breast pump,she did enough bottles to last the day,or so she thought.
The twins woke up and they went upstairs and brought them downstairs, serena went to the kitchen ,warmed up 2 bottles, not hot she tested the milk on her hand it had only taken a couple of minutes in the bottle warmer that they bough,when they were born, but serena only started to use it when Bernie had left for Afghanistan.
Serena re entered the living room and passed one of the bottles to Bernie,now then my big macho army medic, you can repair a tank can you not,yes it easy,once you know how well let's see how you feed a baby,bernie looked at her ,pardon,well you have never fed charlotte have you,bernie no I thought that you were still feeding them yourself, well I am it just in bottles now, Bernie got the bottle and started to feed charlotte,bernie kept looking making sure that everything was going ok, darling just wipe up the milk from around her mouth,bernie did as serena had asked her to do,charlotte had had enough, so Bernie gently took the bottle from the baby's mouth, and placed her over her shoulder and began patting the infant's back until she had been winded,once Bernie was satisfied that she had bought her wind up Bernie sat back down and could not believe just how much they had grown in the timethat she had been away,she started to bounce her up and down on her knees ,taking care not to hurt her,suddenly the little girl started to break into a big smile, hello munchkin is that for me Bernie grinned from ear to ear,and she started giggling,well you for one have made an impact on her,bernie was startled pardon,that is the first time she has smiled that much at any one person,serena repled,sorry love, I was just transfixed by this little girl of ours,just how big she has got, well Cameron is the same,with out any fuss they went and put the twins back in to their cots,darling what is on your mind, because whatever it is please tell me.

Serena held Bernie's hand if we could get an appointment yes, I would like to try for another baby before you go to kiev darling, with that Bernie got the clinics business card out of her wallet,and dialled the number,the duty receptionist answered, Bernie told her that Bernie and her wife would like to book an appointment because they want to try for another baby via sperm donation,well we have had a cancellation for the 30th of December at 09.30hrs, we will take it please,ok so it 09.30 hrs on the 30th December,as Bernie repeated the appointment time in front of serena. Bernie replaced the receiver, do you need to see the doctor darling, about trying for another baby,bernie asked her,i will just check so she phoned her doctors surgery spoke to their g.p who told serena as long as everything is ok he would not need to see serena,unless of course ghe fell pregnant straight away.

Bernie ran upstairs after serena ,only to find her in charlottes nursery, oh my sweetheart,you will be the envy of all your friends,and do you know why, serena said, 'well my love when you and Cameron are a little bit older to understand what I am telling you perhaps you and mumma will understand why I am just so incredibly proud of her,not only is she my best friend, lover, wife,and parent to our 2 beautiful children, but she is also one very brave fearless soldier,who has the respect of every soldier in her regiment,and my love, I am so bloody proud to call her my wife.
With that Bernie walked to the cot, and wrapped her arm around serena,s shoulder's, darling are you ok,serena wrapped her arms around Bernie's waist and rested her head on her shoulder, and broke down in tears,tears of happiness, pride,knowing that she was married to a woman, who is quiet simply the best any soldier,could wish to be, loved respected,honoured by all her soldiers and her c.o and the most senior ranked officers in the r.a.m.b.

Bernie my love, there is nothing wrong with me,i am crying tears of joy, my wife is to honoured with the highest honour any serving soldier can be awarded and my family will be so proud of their mumma as they grow up and we tell them about all your medals and what you did to be awarded those medals,that is what I am crying for my love,a tear fell from bernies eye,it was Serena's turn to ask why Bernie was crying, this year has been the most wonderful year I have ever had,serena held her hand, sweetheart,please tell me why, well first of all we got married,then our beautiful babies were born, my promotion to the rank of Major, and now this new award, it is quiet overwhelming,never in my wildest dreams did I ever think or dare to dream,how my life would be,and my life has turned out better than I could ever have envisaged, and you serena my love the one and only woman I have ever truly loved,there is nothing I would not do for you or our children, just as Bernie was about to lean over and kiss her gorgeous wife the children woke up,they smiled at each other, do you think that they know that we were just about to have a bloody good snog, well i don't know about that, but I think that cry is their way of telling us that they need feeding,with that they held hands as they went to their twins.
After they had fed the twins Bernie was holding Cameron and serena was holding charlotte,they were bouncing the children up and down, the house filled the happy sound of parents, playing happily with their children, children giggling , Bernie called for serena to get something as Cameron has 'something white on his gums' serena looked over to Bernie, what something white on his gums she relied,bernie was panicking just what was it,serena went and teased his mouth open, look there it is Bernie told her,darling, serena smiled at her wife, he is starting to cut his first tooth, Bernie looked at her wife ,'Cameron is cutting his first tooth,'she replied serena grinned from ear to ear, yes my love it is his first tooth that is all.

Serena and Bernie got the children fed and bathed and put them down for their afternoon nap,how did I not know that cameron was cutting his first tooth, Bernie asked, well at least you did notice it serena smiled at her,some parent I am,she said, darling it is nothing to worry about,look when charlotte started to cut her first tooth I didn't know what to do, but I got some teething rings, and some bonjela to rub on their gums, sweetheart it is part of being a parent, we all make mistakes babies do not come with a manual as to how to look after them was serena reply,any way you did notice it , I missed it serena told her, with that they snuggled up to to each other, kissing as well ,Bernie invited serena to sit on her lap, they continued kissing with such a frenetic pace, bernies hands inside Serena's bra gently massaging her buxom chest,lets take this upstairs Bernie suggested, within minutes they were both naked and writhing around on the bed their bodies entwined with each other serena groping at Bernie tight arese, Bernie playing with Serena's nipples.
Sweetheart go and get our friend and put it on for me begged serena,with that command ringing in her ears ,Bernie did what she had asked her,she walked back in to the bedroom,
serena marvelled at the size of the dildo that Bernie had attached to the harness,darling please as she patted to Bernie to join her in bed, she got in the bed, serena had a very dirty look on her face,she lay Bernie down on the bed and started sucking the head of the dildo Bernie was stroking the top of her head,serena could not get enough of the dildo in her mouth she asked Bernie to let her deep throat it,bernie got out of bed and walked over to Serena's side of the bed where she was waiting to get on her knees and give the dildo a fucking good sucking she thought, Bernie gently put it inside her mouth and serena started to push her head on to it further so she cold deep throat it , Bernie started to push it in and out of Serena's mouth,as hard as she could,once the dildo was covered in her spit Bernie pulled it right out of her mouth, serena looked at her why had she suddenly pulled it out of her mouth,bernie looked at her and fucked her up against the bedroom wall, she supported her as she filled her cum filled pussy and started thrusting the dildo in and out so quickly, serena bounced her feet of the wall in ecstacy, she had never experienced anything so fantastic as this before.
Over an hour later they were laying on the top of their bed, Bernie still wearing the strap on,serena trying to catch her breath,just where the hell did you learn how to do that to me serena asked,ah so you did enjoy that then,well my love as you know,you certainly know how to keep me totally satisfied Bernie as serena grinned from ear to ear. Well it is my duty to keep my wife satisfied,and I hope that is what I have done,was Bernie's response, oh so it is your duty to keep me satisfied serena joked, of course Bernie replie to her, well in that case you need to satisfy me again,and again, with that serena got on top of Bernie, and positioned her self on the dildo and started ride it so fiercely, she held on to the headboard for dear life as she totally fucked it Bernie was starring at how her chest was bouncing around she started to slow down as she had achieved her orgasm, Bernie pulled her down to kiss her serena still riding the dildo, serena whisped in bernies ear my turn to fuck you now major, I do believe
Bernie removed the strap on washed the dildo and dried it and handed serena the strap on on your back soldier, serena told her,with that Bernie lay on the bed, legs spread open serena started to play with her clit and inserted to finger in bernies dripping wet pussy she started thrusting her fingers harder and faster until Bernie gave a moan to indicate to serena she had cum all over her hand, serena did what Bernie had done a couple of days earlier and rubbed bernies cum over the dildo with that serena guided the dildo inside Bernie, and began thrusting,serena told her that it is also her duty to keep Bernie happy in any which way she could,oh my darling you will never begin to understand how much you really keep me happy serena kept thrusting the dildo in and out of bernies very wet pussy,bernie gripped her tits and started to play with them whilst serena fucked her,her actions started getting faster and Bernie knew that she would be cumming soon, serena pushed the dildo further into Bernie, with that Bernie had cum,serena flopped on top of Bernie,darling that was fucking brilliant, she then pulled the dildo out of Bernie who then got on her knees and started to deep throat the dildo that was full of her cum.
Serena went into their en-suite removed the strap on washed it and placed it back where Bernie had taken it from, she went back to their bed,where Bernie was waiting for her now darling, there is a little matter of me playing with 2 of your largest assests after all you did promise me did you not said Bernie with a very dirty glint and an even dirtier look on her face,

Bernie and serena lay on top of their bed after their marathon sex session,bernie asked serena if she would help take the Christmas presents downstairs, although the twins were 6 months old Bernie and serena were determind that their children would not miss out on anything, they had them everything from teddy bears to toys to help with their development.Once they had bought all the children's presents down stairs Bernie went back upstairs to go and get Serena's gifts,after about 5 trips upstairs to get all of Serena's gifts, she then went and got all bernies presents,they looked at each other and wished each other merry Christmas, they sat on the floor and both had a drink,talking about the events of that year, how Bernie surprised her with arranging their wedding, serena getting pregnant at the first attempt using sperm donation, then the birth on june 23rd exactly 12 hours apart Cameron born at 05.30 am, charlotte, born at 17. 30hrs and just how proud Bernie was on the day of her promotion ceremony being elevated to rank of major, and the fact that her wife and children were there to see the ceremony as well as a couple of their friends,but more importantly she was so proud of her wife,mother of their children the wife of the army's most highly decorated female soldier, a vascular surgeon, who had put her career on hold so that she could be a stay at home mum, and raise their children whether it be
2,3 or more,because serena had expressed a desire to have at least 4 or more children,when serena announced that she wanted a large family, Bernie was taken aback, she thought maybe they might have 2 possibly 3 Bernie never imagined in her wildest dreams that serena would want such a large family, but Bernie always wanting to please her wife any way she could agreed to her wife's wish,they both agreed that they did not want large gaps in serena being pregnant, after all if she fell pregnant with number 3 when they went to the London fertility clinic hopefully there would not be that much of a gap between their ages,because serena had tried to work it out, if she fell pregnant straight away,the baby should be due September and the twins would be 1 in june so hopefully there should be a 15 month age gap,which is what she wanted, then they would wait at least 2 years before they tried for any more,all those plans were how they had try to plan it , but you know what people say about the best laid plans and all that.

Chapter Text

Bernie was the first to wake up at 05.30hrs,where she lay with her head resting on her shoulder,'my god am I lucky or what laying here with the most beautiful woman I have ever seen' she thought to herself,she got out of bed, went downstairs put the kettle on made herself a cup of tea,she tried to be as quiet as a mouse, because Cameron had been crying through the night owing to the fact that he was teething,and they had both been up with him for a couple of hours, eventually Bernie told serena to get some sleep as she looked totally worn out,thanks love serena said as she went back to sleep,bernie was in their kitchen looking at her drink thinking 'is this how Christmas with a family feels,and my god it felt so good,this was the Christmas she had always dreamed of Bernie, serena and their children.
Bernie's concentration was broken by serena asking where's mine referring to a hot drink,i will get you one darling,she made her a cup of tea, and they were both sitting in their kitchen lovingly gazing at each other, then serena walked over to Bernie and sat on her knee and wrapped her arms around her waist to pull her closer so she could giver Bernie a proper Christmas morning kiss as sh called it,bernie repaid the compliment by giving serena a long lingering kiss,, they pulled apart, serena then said to Bernie thank you for being here with us for our first family Christmas, you are very welcome was bernies reply, they went back upstairs to get dressed,they both put a pair of jeans on and a t shirt,this was the one day of the year where they both dressed down as they would not be expecting any visitors or going out any where or so serena thought. The twins woke at 06.00am they went and bought them downstairs they each fed one of the twins the they changed them and then it was time for presents. bernie would pick one for charlotte to open and serena would pick one for Cameron to open,althought the twins didn't understand what was happening they were giggling so happily and laughing the sound of their children crying bought tears to both serena and bernies eyes,bernie put her arm around serena and started to rub her shoulder, well this time next year my love we could be a family of 5,bernie said, serena smiled that would be brilliant if everything works out like we have tried to plan it, at 08.00 the twins were getting restless so they put the back in their cots where they were out for the count before much longer.
When they had cleaned up the wrapping paper after opening the twins presents, Bernie gave serena 2 of her presents that were from the twins,one was a picture of serena holding the both of them with Bernie standing behind her little family,which serena started to get emotional over, the next present was a specially made mummy ring which had been inscribed
'to mummy with all our love Cameron and Charlotte xx' serena looked at the ring ,tears fell down her face as Bernie kissed her tears away, then serena passed Bernie 2 of her presents
one was picture of just the twins in their little army fatigues which made Bernie smile,the next present was large photo album, packed with photo's of how who their life with each other had developed,from when they met as junior doctors up to the day Bernie went to Afghanistan for her last tour as well as having photo's of the twins from when they were first born, now that present really did turn Bernie into a blubbering wreck, she had never seen anything as special or as thoughtful as that present that her wife had created for her, they opened more presents off each other, Bernie had gone to great lengths to make sure she bought serena some very sexy lingerie, and her favourite perfumes, cd's of her favourite singer or band serena loved the music of celine dion and the music of queen, great choice,serena too had gone to a great length to get some sexy lingerie for Bernie, some jewellery although Bernie was reluctant to wear jewellery,in case she lost any piece that had been bought for her by either the children or serena, because if ever that happened that would break bernies heart, Bernie told serena that she had another present to open,she came down stairs with a large blue velvet box, she sat next to serena and kissed her and said merry Christmas again I hope you like it,she opened the box and inside was the most beautiful pair of pearl and diamond earrings with matching necklace,bernie my love it is so beautiful,
just like the woman it was bought for my love, serena also told Bernie that she had another couple of presents to open,when she went back into the living room, she passed Bernie the first present when Bernie opened it she was surprised to find that serena had bought her a west Bromwich albion football shirt, now this one serena said,bernie thought it was a large book, but when she opened it she was gobsmacked with what her wife had done for her.
She sat and marvelled at what was before her eyes, again it was a large photo album, on the front was the badge of the royal army medical brigade, in gold writing underneath the inscription read 'to Celebrate The Promotion Of Major Berenice G. Wolfe and it had all the initials of all the medals that she had so far been awarded
Friday 08-07-2000
The tears fell down bernies just like the waterfall at Victoria waterfalls. Serena put her arms around Bernie ok love, Bernie looked at her, my love what you have done for me I cannot ever repay you, you gave me strength, shown me love, given me courage to be who I want and need to be, and I need to be your strength like you are mine, and for that my love I will always be eternally grateful to you, thank you,as she placed a long lingering kiss upon her wife's lips, and just on cue as they both rubbed their foreheads together the twins woke up they both went upstairs to bring them back downstairs so they could play with their toys or crawl as long as they were happy serena and Bernie were so happy and contented. Bernies phone started to ring,serena looked at her,Yes Major wolfe speaking oh hello,she replied,yes that will be fine, now we will be bringing the twins is that ok , fine we will see you at 14.00hrs, bye, oh and brian thank you for sorting this out for us it means a great deal to us so thank you once again,serena looked at her, we are going out for Christmas lunch darling, what, where when serena asked, we have a table for 2 reserved with 2 high chairs,and we are booked in for 2.00pm my love, well when did you arrange all this then,when I knew I would be back here for Christmas, so I booked it in October, and I have had to wait for him to phone and confirm, where are going to Brian Turners restaurant in mayfair, oh darling see you can be romantic when you want to be ,well mrs. wolfe I thought why not we don't go out much not with me being in the army so I thought why not treat us.
They made their way to the restaurant in mayfair,serena got out and got charlotte out of her car seat, Bernie got Cameron out of his car seat, and they were escorted inside, and they were greeted by brian turner who escorted them to their table, they sat down and were handed the menu, they decided on the traditional Christmas dinner and 2 meals were ordered for the twins just mash potatoes and some vegetables, when all the meals arrived they fed the children whilst trying to eat their dinner,once they had had their meals Bernie paid and they made the drive back home,once they got home the twins were put in their cots as they were completely shattered.
Bernie and serena settled down for the evening, Bernie with a large whiskey, serena with a large glass of shiraz, serena snuggled into bernies side and could not have wished for a most memorable of Christmas day......ever.

The next few days passed so quickly, Bernie had been asked to report to the barracks at 11.00hrs on the 28th December so she could be filled in on the details regarding her secondment to oversee the new army trauma unit in kiev, what time the flight was, what would be expected of her, and so forth,the meeting lasted 3hrs,before she was dismissed she was handed the flight tickets and also keys to the 3 bedroomed flat that came with being in charge of the trauma unit, she asked if she would be allowed to let her wife and family come over from time to time, well of course they can go the lieuetenent colonel told her, when Bernie got back home she explained everything to serena how she would be in charge of overseeing the smooth running of the unit, and that basically what ever she said had to be adhered to, serena had the biggest smile, once again knowing that her wife would be in overall charge of an army operation god she was one really proud 'army wife'.
December 30th they both woke early, both were nervous, because they both knew that they both wanted it to be successful,as it had been the first time around,and if it had worked,hopefully their 3rd baby would be due in September which would mean that there would be 15 months between the children which in reality, that is what Bernie and serena wanted not to long an age gap between their children.
Bernie went and got the children dressed and ready to make the journey to the London fertility clinic,whilst serena got herself showered, and dressed, then at 08.15hrs they put the twins into their car seats,as usual serena got in the passenger side and Bernie in the drivers side and they started the drive to the clinic, which in about 4 maybe 6 weeks from now they would find out if the sperm donation had been as successful this time has it had been the first time around, they arrived at about 08.55hrs they got the twins into their buggy and Bernie and serena went to the reception area,and announced that Major and Mrs. wolfe were here for their 09.30 hrs appointment, the receptionist asked if they would go and wait in the waiting room until serena's appointment time, and right on time at 09.30hrs, serena was called to go with the nurse to go and get her blood pressure and height ,weight, and check her patient number and name and date of birth with all check completed she was escorted to the theatre ,where the procedure would take place, once the procedure had been done, she had to lie with her hips and legs elevated as high as possible, to make sure that they had the best chance of conceiving a baby.
Serena finally made her way back to Bernie and the twins an hour and half later,they got the twins safely in their seats and serena in the passenger side and Bernie in the drivers side, they made the return journey back home.
When they returned home Bernie got serena settled down on the settee, put the twins into their bouncers whilst she went and made them both a drink, and warmed the twins bottles.
Once Bernie had fed the twins she went and put them in their moses baskets so serena and Bernie could have some time to themselves to reflect on what they were both hoping for, hoping that the procedure had worked and serena could tell bernie that she was expecting baby number 3.

Chapter Text

Serena just rested all day,whilst Bernie made sure the twins were looked after, and she attended to Serena's every whim,bernie sat next to serena and asked if she would like to ask a few friends over for new years eve, or just have a quiet new years eve just the 4 of them,bringing in 2001, hoping that 2001 would just be as special as 2000, but could any year be better than everything that happened to them 2000.
New years eve was a bit of a hectic day, as Bernie need to get some clothes and personel effects packed as well as go and get a few bits and pieces for the flight to kiev,and she also got a spare key cut for serena, in case she and the children turned and Bernie was still at work, although Bernie had said that once Bernie had got settled in to her new role, she would ask serena if she wanted to go over and spend a couple of days with Bernie in the apartment.
The rest of the day went relatively quickly and as midnight fast approached,bernie wanted to bring the twins down stairs so that they could all bring the new year in as a family, now doing that brought a lump to Serena's throat, seeing her wife, her children all together to see the new year in it meant a lot to her,because as a child it was something she never experienced with her parents not once in her childhood,or in her teenage years.
The next 2 days Bernie and serena spent as much time as possible with their twins because after the 3rd of January, Bernie would be leaving for her 6 month secondment to kiev, but this time serena felt a little happier as she knew Bernie was not on the frontline, which came as a blessing to serena, knowing that Bernie would not be seeing any frontline action, or operating or saving wounded soldiers on the battlefield. not that she was not proud of what Bernie had achieved, with her army medical career.
Thursday 3rd January 2001,Bernie woke early as per usual, she always had problems sleeping before she went on tour,however although she was not going to a war zone,she would still be in a foreign country, not knowing anyone or any of the medical staff who were helping Bernie set the trauma unit up,she looked at the clock on the wall it was only 02.15am still at least another 4 hours before anyone else in the house stirred,she went and had a shower, trying not to disturb serena or the twins,but to no avail, serenawas sitting up in bed, what is the problem sweetheart,as Bernie entered the bedroom,usual problem cannot sleep,ok let's go downstairs and have a drink,with that they made their way downstairs where Bernie made them both a cup of tea,how are you feeling darling serena asked her, I am nervous, worried, frightened , wondering what have I got myself into, have I made the right decision,she told serena, well I for one think that the army have made the right descion by asking you to oversee the setting up of a trauma unit,you will be in overall charge, and if any one deserves this then my love it is most definatly you,after all you have worked hard all through your army medical career, and I understand that you need a new challenge from time to time, so just look upon this as another challenge, something else you can add to your already impressive c.v which if you should ever leave the army and get a job in a civilian hospital all these medical challenges will stand you in good stead.
Bernie sat and listened patiently to what her beloved wife was saying and Bernie agreed what serena had told her it made complete sense.
Bernie when you are the most fantastic,talented surgeon any one with a modicum of intelligence knows that, and that trauma unit cannot be in better hands, then it being in your hands, so keep your chin up and just think when it is all up and operating to the capacity it should be you can look back and think to yourself I oversaw all the setting up of the unit
because Bernie my love I know to 3 people who are so incredibly proud of you,proud of your fantastic army career, and medical career, but more importantly,we are as proud of you as a wife,and parent,so stop thinking all those thought, otherwise I will snog your face off as a punishment ok, serena smiled at her.
Bernie started to get her belongings and clothes, her flight left from Gatwick at 08.30 hrs ,so she needed to be at the airport for about 06.30hrs and check in, serena and the twins would see her off, this flight would not be as emotional as the last one, she is not going to a war zone serena kept telling herself, which made serena smile to herself,bernie helped serena to get the twins in their seats, and Bernie got in the passenger side, and serena got in the driver's side, they drove to the airport and Bernie checked in and waited with serena and the twins in the departure lounge Bernie holding both twins and promising she,would be back soon and saying the same to serena, at least it is not a war zone the told Bernie, I can handle that, but neverless please take care, I will darling was Bernie's response, now the day you find out if we are expecting babynumber 3 you will tell me won't you darling, the minute I find out you will be the first to know sweetheart, with that the call for bernies flight was announced over the public address system,she gathered her bag gave the twins a kiss and a hug and then she turned to serena ,both had tears in their eyes, they kissed and hugged each other, I will phone as soon as I land darling and when I am settled you will all come over for a weeks holiday if that is what you would like to do, with that serena told her you bet, we will be there now go and get your
flight before it takes off without you ,

Bernie landed in kiev at 11.45hrs, after she had been through the arrivals gate and through customs, she hailed a taxi and wanted to go to the new trauma unit that was in the process of being set up,she got in the taxi and she arrived at the hospital at about 12.30hrs, when she went to the reception area, she tried to explain who she was and that she was there to oversee the setting up of the new trauma unit, the receptionist did not understand what Bernie was telling her, then 2 doctors approached Bernie,can we help you at all madam, the slightly older one asked, yes, my name is Major Berenice wilfe, I believe I am expected, ahh so you are the famous Major wolfe, one of the army's most highly decorated soldiers, yes that is me she replied,right then, my name is Dr. alex Dawson, and may I introduce Dr.Ellinor Campbell we are a couple we hope that will not be a problem for you.to which Bernie replied no that is not a problem for me I am a very happily married woman and my partner and myself we are proud parents to 7month old twins, a son and a daughter, Cameron and Charlotte, with that the younger of the 2 asked if Bernie really ought to be away from her babies,with them still being so young,well their mummy is taking great care of them whilst I am here for 6 months,pardon as they said in unison,on saying that she got her wallet out to show the 2 Drs a picture of her wife and family,they both commented on how her family looked so perfect, well yes they are so perfect, Bernie said with a large grin across her face.
Right then let's get you a cup of coffee and we will show you where your apartment is ok, now you are stating work tomorrow is that right Dr, Campbell asked yes my first shift begins at 06.00hrs, oh do you prefare to tell time in 24 hour mode then Major yes i am so used to saying the time in 24hr mode rather than it is1pm no, I do prefare 24 hr mode.
The 2 Drs showed Bernie to the apartment which was attached to the hospital, as she walked in she was amazed, it was a total picture, all laminate flooring all through, furniture that was so grand she thought it must have cost a bloody fortune, however this was to be her home now for the next 6 months, better make the most of it.
Right we will you get yourself settled in the nearest supermarket is a 10 minute walk from here, or there are plenty of pizza parlours, or takeaways so there is plenty of choice if you don't feel like cooking yourself anything, with that they left Bernie alone,and the first thing she did next was to phone her gorgeous wife as she might start panicing, she grabbed her mobile phone and went into contacts and dialled Serena's number, it rang out twice, hello Bernie is that you, yes my love I arrived safely about 11.45hrs and got a taxi straight here but the receptionist could not understand me, however there are a couple of english doctors who work here, Bernie told her, the apartment is simply stunning, it is already furnished,
the nearest supermarket is 10 minutes away so I shall be going there shortly to grab some food and other essentials, serena breathed a sigh of relief knowing that at least Bernie had arrived safely, now how are my darling Bernie asked, well we had a pleasant journey back home,why what happened, well apart from the fact that there was a detour due to a lorry braking down on the motorway so we came home the scenic route and our babies have finally seen some animals in fields and they giggled their little heads off looking at them, so when you come home we will have to see if there are any petting farms in our area and have a day out if you would like that sweetheart, darling I would love to do that, now I will hang up now and I will phone you tomorrow when my shift has finished at 16.00hrs,later that day she went and some essentials from the supermarket, went back to the flat and began to unpack her clothes and other personel effects.

Bernie strolled into the reception area of the hospital making her way to the trauma unit,and barking out orders as to what needed to be put in the trauma unit, she saw a young man approach her, he was wearing burgundy coloured scrubs, good morning may I introduce myself Mr.dominic Copeland senior registrar, good morning Bernie replied, and you are he asked sorry I am Major Berenice Wolfe Bernie for short,pleased to meet you, with that they shook hands,he then asked if Bernie fancied a cheeky coffee before they started work why not I need to know where the café is anyway, so they went into the hospital café made their way over to a table and got their drinks and started to get to know each other as medical professionals, so Bernie you were in the army then, no I still am in active service, I am a trained army trauma surgeon,trained by the army,he commented that she looked rather young to be a major, to which she thanked him, please don't think I am being nosey have you won many medals.may I call you dom she asked by all means was his reply.everyone does anyway, I am the army.s most highly decorated female soldier, he gasped are you joking no,she told him.

Bernie rushed back to the apartment so she could tell serena about her first day and about meeting Mr. Copeland,as his transfer to trauma surgery from general surgery.
She got home got her mobile phone and dialled Serena's number, it rang out once serena sweetheart, hi its me Bernie said,hello you sexy was serena's reply, how are things out there, well if you want the truth,i would love to be in the arms of my gorgeous wife playing with our twins,but I will settle for talking to you for now, Bernie said,nearly crying, and she told serena and she told her about her working hours and how that once a month she was expected to have a long weekend off, and general information that serena wanted to know about.
Bernie's tone in her voice changed,serena knew that something was bothering her darling what is the matter, I have been warned about a female doctor who works here, her name is alex dawson, and whatever she wants apparently she gets, i.e someone else's partner, serena asked Bernie what was she like, was she young, old short or tall,to which Bernie replied, I don't know and I don't care the only woman I care about is my wife that bought a tear to Serena's throat, darling will you just repeat that last statement for me please serena asked,so Bernie repeated the statement back to her precious wife,thank you darling that means a lot to hear you say those words, well if there is one thing I have always known is just be honest with the people you love and they will love and respect you a lot more, she then asked about the twins well their first teeth have made an appearance this morning, what do you mean sweetheart, they have started to come through, and not only that but your daughter is trying to stand up on her own,but she gets so far up and falls back down on her bum, Bernie started to laugh, I will send those pictures to your phone later my love if that is ok with you, that will be fine my sweet, with that Bernie asked when she has her first long weekend would she like to bring herself and the twins over, darling I would love to, ok when I know when I find out when it is I will ring you and we can make the arrangements and I will meet you at the airport,ok was Serena's reply.
Serena then asked Bernie to sit down as she had something to tell her, what is wrong my love, well you have had a letter from the army awards commission, it was sent recorded delivery and it arrived this morning, darling please open it up and tell me what is says please.
' It is with great delight that we have the date for your medal presentation, it will take place at Buckingham palace at 11.30hrs in the ceremonial awards room on the 23rd june 2001 the medal that you are to receive is the royal military iron cross for bravery that went well and truly above the call of duty and courage shown in the battlefield.
Bernie was sobbing her heart out, because the day she was to receive her medal was on their children's 1st birthday, she stopped crying as serena asked if she was ok, sorry about getting upset, but knowing when I will be receiving it it just got to me, my sweetheart you have nothing to be sorry for it is called being proud, and there is no shame in that she told her. they hung up and serena promisedto get a photocopy of the letter sent out to her , because her secondment was due to finish on or around the 20th june, so she need to be back home well before that day.
The next few weeks passed in a blur,bernies first long weekend was due at the end of January, so she phoned serena on the Saturday as her first long weekend was due to start on the Thursday afternoon,bernie would look in to flight from London to kiev and get her and the twins booked on a flight for the Thursday morning or early afternoon,bernie told her

Bernie, booked serena and the twins on the 10.00hrs flight from Gatwick airport to kiev, the flight should take about 3hrs she thought, so I should be finished in time to go home and shower and change and the drive to the airport.
Mean while, serena had changed the time of their flight, instead of leaving at 10.00,they would be leaving at 07.00hrs, so she could surprise Bernie, by arriving at the hospital, so they could take the short journey to the flat where Bernie was staying whilst overseeing the trauma unit,serena arrive at the airport at 05.00hrs so she had got plenty of time to check herself and the twins in, then it was just waiting for their flight to be announced.
At 06.20 their flight number was announced,they made their way to the departure gate, she thought to herself in just 3 hrs time , I will be with the woman I love and she will be shocked to see her and the twins at the hospital and instead of Bernie finishing work, and rushing to get everything done and drive to the airport they for once would be there to surprise Bernie.
The twins slept all through the flight ,not stirring once,and the flight landed 15 minutes as well, serena went through the customs channel, then she waited for their luggage, once she got that, she went outside to hail a cab, she got one straight away,and she gave him the name of the hospital where Bernie worked, the journey took about 45 minutes from the airport to the hospital,she paid, him he got her luggage out of the boot she got the twins into their double pram and went to the hospital,the automatic doors opened, and she made her way to the reception area, 'what do you want madam'the woman behind the desk asked her, i'm looking for Bernie wolfe, she is in surgery at the present,but if you would like to wait in the relatives room when she has finished I will inform her that you are here, that will not be necessary the voice behind her said,she turned around and Henrik Hanssen was standing behind her, mrs.wolfe I presume, yes it is Mr. Hanssen,please call me Henrik he told her, well you must call me Serena, with that he escorted her upstairs to his office ,once in side he ordered some drinks for them both.
So these must be your twins he said has he looked at the 2 of them yes they are nearly 8months old,they have grown up so quickly,however they are a credit to you she replied thank you.
Serena then asked what was he doing running an army hospital in kiev, well guy self got me pushed out, by telling tales that I was not coping with running such a large hospital, and that I could not mamage the budgets etc etc,what a loser serena told him, and when this job came up I applied and as they say the rest is history.
Whos'e idea was it to get Bernie to oversee the trauma unit, then well I will admit, I knew that there was only une person capable of overseeing such a large task and that person is major wolfe, so I approached the british army and explained who I was and what I wanted Major wolfe for, and after many meeting between bernies bosses, and the board of governers it was decisws tat Bernie was not only ideal, but the only one with the foresight to arrange everything so it will flow through with patients not having to wait to be transferred to specialist ward for their treatment and rehabilitation.
That is why we chose Bernie, Henrik told her.
The phone is hanssens office started to ring,has Major wolfe finished in surgery yet,if so please tell her to come up to my office please thank you,nurse Harrisson,he replied they carried on talking about Bernie and general chit chat,15 minutes later, there is a knock on his door he gets up and opens the door, and in walks Bernie,she is gobsmacked to see serena sitting in his office, sorry darling but I changed the time of the flight,serena told her,Henrik asked her to take a seat for a couple of miutes,which she did, now then I have it on good authority that you are owed several weeks leave, that is correct Mr.Hanssen, well as of now you are on official leave,you are due back at the end of the first week in February,he told her.
With that Bernie picked up Serena's luggage and they made their way down stairs,where they were met by dominic and nurse Essie harrisson, Bernie introduced serena to some of her work collegues,dom was smitten with the twins as was Essie.
Just as they were about to leave Bernie heard someone call out to hermit was Dr.Alex Dawson, so who is this woman who you are with Alex eyed her up and down several times well I thought that you said your misses was stunning, serena saw the look on bernies face,she was losing it big style with this Alex person.
Why don't you just leave me and my family alone Bernie snapped, I am not interested in you, I never have been and never will be do you understand that,i am with serena I don't want any one else,so please leave me alone.
Do not worry Major and Mrs.wolfe,she is being transferred to a military hospital I the united states of America, so she cannot cause you any more trouble.
But I do not want to be transferred to late I have submitted the paperwork, your flight leaves at midnight tonight, just make sure that you are on that flight Henrik Hanssen told her.
With that berenie and serena made their way to the apartment,they were both tired and the ywins were due to wake up wanting feeding,and besides Bernie and serena had a little matter of making up after all they had been apart for just under a month..............

Serena and Bernie got the twins ready for bed, and then they snuggled up to each other on the settee, Bernie had made them a drink and they got their night clothes on, and Bernie began asking serena how things had been at home whilst she had been in kiev,everything was fine she replied and with that she handed Bernie the letter that she had received from the Army Awards commission.
She opened the envelope and took the letter out and began to read it, so my love, it looks like we have another day to celebrate,not only do I get my medal on the 23rd, but it is also the children's first birthday,so we will have a double celebration, Bernie announced with a grin on her face.
The week that all 4 of them spent together in kiev went so quickly, that it was soon time for serena and the children to fly back home to holby,bernie drove them to the airport on the sunday morning as their flight was at 11.30hrs.
Serena checked in at the airport and then her and the twins waited in the departure lounge with brnie until their flight was called,and at 11.00the first call for all passenger to start boarding, Bernie kissed the children goodbye, then she gently kissed her wife goodbye, and serena told her that she would phone her just as soon as she had landed back in london
Bernie went back to work on the Monday morning with a smile on her face,to which dom asked her 'good week off then bernie' yes thank you Mr. Copeland the best week's holiday I have had for a while.
Bernie asked if he wanted a' cheeky coffee ' that was their weekly treat every Monday morning, so they went to hospital refectory and got themselves a drink and found a table where
Bernie told him that serena was pregnant.Is shesure he asked, yes the pregnancy was confirmed just before serena and the twins flew out here.
With their 'cheeky coffee' over it was time to start work,they went about treating patients, operating on patients, Bernie stood and looked all around knowing that this area of the hospital was her domain, it was her area of expertise, and she was so happy that everything in her life and career,was just fine.

Bernie's time in kiev just flew by so quickly, whenever she had a long weekend off,she would finish at 13.00hrs on the Thursday afternoon, get a taxi and get the earliest flight to holby city and spend the precious time with serena and the children always buying new toys for her children and always something tasteful and expensive for her darling wife.
As her time In kiev was coming to an end Henrik Hanssen called her up in to his office and thanked her for all her hard work in organising the trauma unit, to which she replied 'you are very welcome'.
Back at the apartment she was busy packing up her belongings and personel effects, making sure she not forgotten anything she did a quick check all around the rooms.
As she was about to leave to go to her final shift,before leaving to go back to holby city, Alex Dawson's previous partner Dr.Ellinor Campbell approached her, Bernie asked her if she wanted something, to which the young doctor replied , please can I tell you something in confidence Major wolfe, go on what is wrong, 'when alex and I were together she was not a very nice person to me',i don't understand what do you mean Bernie asked looking puzzled she was verbally abusive to me, she never physically hurt me, but it was name calling all the time and she was desparate to shag you because of your rank and status in the british army.
Bernie reeled from the young dr's revelations she wanted to shag me she replied,yes but when she saw your beautiful wife, she knew that she did not stand a cat in hell's chance so she took her frustrations out on me for weeks after, calling me names, saying that I was not fit to be a doctor, not fit for anything in fact,with these revelations reeling in bernies ears. she asked the young lady who by now was crying,'are you by any chance related to Major Edward Campbell, Bernie asked her to which she told Bernie 'yes he my father''
Bernie told her that she needed to phone her father straightaway in Afghanistan, you really need to warn him of what she is capable off, so everyone can keep an eye on her and anybody else she tries to become romantically involved, ellinor agreed to phone her father at the earliest chance.
When Bernie got to the hospital she asked dom to make sure that ellinor always had a friend to talk to, he asked why? because dom did you know Alex was verbally abusing her, Bernie asked him, oh my god I had no idea, perhaps I was so wrapped up in my own troubles with issac Mayfield to notice anything was wrong,but Bernie I will make sure she always has a friend to unburden her problems to, thank you dom ,that means a lot to me with that Bernie gave him the biggest hug he had ever had.
Bernie's final shift was fast approaching ,when Essie and dom asked her if she would join them for a quick drink before she left,she agreed, but only one she stipulated as I need to be on the 06.00hrs flight tomorrow morning so just one ok they all agreed'. With her shift no completed she changed from her dark blue trauma scrubs [everyone commented as to how sexy she looked in them] got dressed in her trademark black skinny jeans and her trademark too big and too long shirt and trainers, and made her way to the local pub,where she knew dom and Essie were waiting for her.
When she walked in, they had arranged a leaving party for her, oh you guys thank you, I don't know what to say,with that dom said'turn around please bernie' why she asked,because' my darling dom phoned me and told me about your party and asked if we would like to come over to make sure you are on your flight at 06.00hrs' came the reply,
With tears in her eyes she turned around and saw her beautiful wife and gorgeous children,how have you arranged all this without me even knowing,well Major,you are not the only one who can spring surprises without anyone else knowing what strategy you are using sweetheart was Serena's reply.
Serena knew that Bernie had vacated the apartment so she had booked them into a hotel not that far from the airport,everyone was drinking and dancing and generally enjoying themselves, Bernie and serena made their excuses and left the party at 21.30hrs so that they could have a good sleep before waking at 03.00hrs to get to the airport so they could be on the 06.00hrs flight back home so at long last all be a family together once more and start to make arrangements for the children's first birthday, and the appointmet at the palace,

Chapter Text

Once they got to the hotel, they got the twins settled and 2 women both got their pajama's on ready so they could get a couple of hours sleep, before waking up at 03.00hrs because they had to be at the airport for at least 04.30hrs so that they could check in, and then wait for their flight back to England.
Bernie was tossing and turning all night so she carefully got out of bed trying not to disturb serena or wake the twins, she sat in the armchair that was in the corner of the room she just sat there gazing at her beautiful family, and admiring her beautiful pregnant wife,who was 6 months pregnant with the couples 3rd child, she peered in to the children's cots
[serena had booked a double room and had asked for 2 cots to be placed in the room] stoked charlottes face placed a kiss on her daughter's forehead she did the same to Cameron, she sat down on the floor and started talking to them about how they will soon have either a baby brother or sister,and that being a big brother and big sister, they would have help mummy look after the new baby, just the same as mumma would be doing.
Serena put the bedside light on,and she got up out of bed and walked over to where Bernie was sitting,put her arm around her, what is wrong my love, serena asked, cannot sleep, tried not to disturb you or the twins Bernie told her,serena took her hand, lets go back to bed she said with a large grin on her face,after all you have not played with your 2 favourite play thing for nearly a month, with out being asked a second time they were quickly in bed Bernie took Serena's pyjama top off and the removed her bra, to reveal Serena's large chest,which Bernie always marvelled at, she started to massage them and roll her nipples between her fingers, and she was kissing them and sucking on them as if her life depended on it.,serena was sitting on bernies lap whilst she was playing with her chest.
Serena moved and sat at the side of Bernie and started ti put her hand down brtnies pyjama bottoms snaked her hand inside her knickers, Bernie opened her legs further so serena could get her hand deep inside her soaking wet pussy, she put 4 fingers inside Bernie and started to thrust them in and out of her Bernie begged serena to be harder as she was so close to cumming, with that she went harder and faster,bernie gave a small cry and she knew she had cum, serena took her trousers and knickers off completely and started to lick her pussy, Bernie had her hand on Serena's head, she was asking her to put another 2 fingers inside as she wanted to cum again serena duly obliged and made her wife achieve her orgasm again, Bernie took her wifes hand and began to lick the cum of her fingers.
Once they had cleaned themselves up and got showered and dressed they had to get the twins ready so they could at long last get a flight back to England back home.

Once they arrived back home the unpacked all of bernies clothes and belongings.She read her letter that had arrived from the army awards commission for details of her medal presentation,she would have to phone the barracks just to confirm whether it was her senior officers dress uniform or the regimental dress uniform,that she would be wearing on the actual day.
As well as trying to get her uniform sorted for the presentation she was also panicking about what to buy the children for their first birthday,serena told her to stop worrying so much,because they would get everything sorted in time.
bernies c.o. had booked an appointment to see her well before her day at the palace, she knew the drill, as she had been through medal presentations before,but this one was completely different to the others,as all the hierarchy from the army would be there to see Bernie become the only female soldier to be presented with the royal military iron cross and it would be a very proud day for the regiment of the royal Berkshire rifles,[that was the regiment Bernie was attached to],not only a proud day for her regiment,but also for her wife and family.
The appointment had been made for 09.00hrs on the 6th june and the appointment should take about 2hrs to go through, who would be there and the fact that there would be other service personel present there would be all divisions of the armed services would be represented.
However Bernie was told that other service men and women were also there to receive medals for acts of bravery,but she was being awarded the highest medal awarded to any serving soldier or officer for selfless acts of bravery,and going up and above the call of duty to fellow soldiers and officers.
She had her appointment at the barracks where she was told that she would be expected to wear her senior officers morning dress uniform,complete with the ceremonial cap,sword,and belt as well as wearing her medals. What time will I need to be at the palace for she asked, well your car will collect you and mrs.wolfe at 10.15am on the morning,of the presentation,he told her she then told him that her and serena had twins who will be 1yr old on the day she is awarded her new medal, will they be allowed to attend even though they are only 1yr old she asked him,of course it is only fitting that they be there to see you awarded a new medal,any way we have informed the relevant officials at the palace that not only is mrs wolfe pregnant, but you will only attend if your twins can be there,and they have agreed to it,anyway there will be other serving men and women will be there with their families Bernie,
Once she got back home she got out her senior officers morning dress uniform and took it to be dry cleaned,in readiness for the presentation,serena asked her how she felt about the presentation, Bernie replied nervous, anxious,worried,and I hope I don't get too overwhelmed by the whole day,darling why should you be overwhelmed, sweetheart it will be a very proud day not only for me ,but for you as well,serena looked at her what do you mean Bernie? well not only do our beautiful children turn 1yr old, but your wife will become the only woman in military history to be awarded the royal military iron cross,serena was gobsmacked by what her wife had just told her.

The midwife went into Jasmines room and explained to Morven that it was time to go home and let jasmine get some rest and that she could come back later that day, she kissed jasmine goodbye, and went to see fletch and the rest of the team on aau.
Essie was the first one to catch Morven as she approached the nurses station, where raf and fletch were sitting, well come on Morven,Jasmine gave birth to a little boy 1 hour ago,Morven told everyone they asked how big he was 6lb 2 ounces she announced, and we have decided to call him Marcus James burrows-digby.

Fletch then asked if she had phoned serena and told her about her new born son,i will go and see her and show her the pictures I have took on my phone, which she had shown to the staff on aau who all agreed that he was a little sweetheart.
As she pulled up outside Serena's house,she hoped that she could be as good a parent as serena and Bernie were to their twins,she got out of her car and approached the front door,as she went to ring the bell serena opened the door to her,serena looked at her, I saw you pull up Morven,please do come in,excuse the house I have just bathed the children so I am in a little mess at the moment,both ladies went into the living room, and Morven started to cry, Serena asked her what was the matter, and she got her phone out and proudly announced to serena 'there my girlfriend and our son she said to serena,she asked when was he born,morven told her 07.55 this morning and he weighs 6lb 2 ounces and he is bloody perfect as serena put her arms around her,gave her a tissue to dry her eyes,she went made them both a cup of tea.

Chapter Text

The next few weeks seem to go so quickly,both Bernie and serena had been making plans for a small party to celebrate their children's first birthday,however because Bernie was receiving her medal on the Friday,which was the twins birthday they had decided to have the party on the Saturday,which meant that they would have more time to devout to the twins and attend to the other toddlers or under 1yr olds as well as their parents,and of course serena would not only be the very proud mummy, but she would also be the very proud 'army wife' showing off her wife's latest medal as well be telling every one that Bernie is the only female in military history to be awarded the royal military iron cross for bravery in the face of danger.
Bernie had a phone call from her barracks on the Wednesday 21st june just to confirm the times of the arrival of the official cars which will take them to the palace,bernies official car would be arriving at her home at 10.15hrs and the car which was to take serena and their children would be arriving at 10.15.hrs so all 4 of them could arrive at the palace together, however Bernie would have to go to the ceremonial awards room to make sure she knew the correct protocol after all it was the queen who would be awarding Bernie her medal this time, normally it was always prince Charles,but because this medal was the highest one that could be awarded to a serving senior officer the queen always officiated at these medal ceremonies.
Later on the Wednesday Bernie went and collected her senior officers dress uniform from the dry cleaners, she spent at least acouple of hours making sure her shoes were so shiny and well polished, you could see your face in them,she also ironed her shirt, and creases she ironed into the sleeves were so sharp you could have cut yourself on them,she basically spent all day Wednesday making sure that her uniform was so crisp, you would have thought that it had never been worn before, not that serena was not capable of ironing bernies uniform, but even serena knew better than to offer to iron her uniform, after all she had been trained at sandhurst military academy and they tell you how to iron your uniform until you get it spot on.
Thursday 22nd june,
Bernie went to collect to the 2 birthday cakes that she had ordered the previous week,and she bought the children a few more presents, for them to open on their birthday,not they had not got enough as it was.
When she returned home she noticrd a strange car on their drive,she got the cakes out of the car and opened the front door,and she finally got to meet Marcus James Burrows Digby.
She took the cakes into the kitchen and went and got the other presents out of the car, and put them upstairs with the rest of the other presents that friends had bought them as well as the one from their very proud mummy and momma.
When she had done all that she went into the living room where she peered into the pram where Jasmine and Morven's son lay sleeping peacefully, Bernie asked Jasmine how old he was just over 4 months old and he is a little darling, serena asked if he was sleeping through the night yet,Morven replied since he was 4 weeks old he has been sleeping straight through the night. Bernie asked if they would be going to the twins party on the Saturday, Jasmine said we will be here if it's ok, well we were hoping that you would come over any way.
They left at about 17.00hrs, Bernie and serena got the children fed and bathed and ready for their evening sleep.
What is wrong love serena asked Bernie, tell you the truth serena I am looking forward to tomorrow, but in another respect, I am dreading it, serena went and sat by her wife and held her hand,tell me what is wrong Bernie please asked her wife.
Well normally with these medal ceremonies it is just prince Charles, and he puts you at ease, he will talk to you and have a laugh as well, but the queen has never presented me with a medal and I am worried in case I say the wrong thing, or totally mess it up, because tomorrow serena, all the hierarchy from the army,will be there to see me receive my medal as
well as the top men from the regiment that I am attached to 'The Royal Bershire Rifles.' as well as all the top men from The Royal Medical Brigade' aswell as all the troops and everyone's eyes will be on me and I am petrified in case I mess everything up.
Serena held her hand, well if that happens it proves just one thing then sweetheart, it proves you are only human. everyone goes through a bout of fear some time in their life,if you didn't then I would think that there was something wrong with you my love, to which Bernie replied, and if I mess it up I mess it up in front of you and the twins,and then what will you think of me then,serena, I could not look at you because I had messed up.
Serena replied, I would think that you are the most fantastic soldier in the ceremonial awards room,and you are my wife, momma to our darling children and I would still be so incredibly proud of you, because you deserve to receive that medal tomorrow,and no one can or will take that away from you,

Friday 23rd june 2001.
Bernie woke early,she looked at her clock and the time was 04.45hrs, she lay in their bed looking at the ceiling, hoping that everything would go well today,after all, it was their children's first birthday, and Bernie's medal presentation at Buckingham Palace,so it was expected that she would be nervous,and it was also the first time that she had been presented a medal by the queen.
Serena lay her head on her shoulder, hi beautiful, Bernie looked and saw that serena had been crying, darling what is wrong, Bernie asked her anxiously. Well today is a big day for all of us my love was her reply,bernie wrapped her muscular arm around her wife, sweetheart, I just hope that everything goes well today, and I do not make any mistakes when being presented to her majesty.
Serena smiled at her, you will not, I know you too well Berenice wolfe, if anything you will put everyone at ease,with that Bernie gave serena a very long lingering kiss,to which serena responded by wrapping her arms around Bernie and reciprocating,the kiss that Bernie had placed upon her sumptuous lips.

Well you handled the last tour expertly,and you have the respect of everyone in the R.A.M.B,aswell as the respect of your peers.
She asked why me sir, well Bernie colonel Jameson said; you have the knowledge, you are fearless; and we think that by expecting you to lead from the front,the people of Iraq will have their country, back, terrorist free, and more importantly the people of iraq will once again be able to live in peace once colonel sadam hussain has been removed from power.
Will that be the objective of the operation sir, to remove colonel sadam Hussain from power, with that , colonel Jameson told her that she should report to the barracks at 09.00hrs on Monday.

Bernie and serena made their way back to the official cars that had taken them to the palace earlier in the day, Bernie was ushered into hers and serena and the twins were ushered into their car, once they were back home,bernie and serena thanked them for driving her and her wife and family back home, with that both drivers saluted Bernie and acknowledged serena.
Once they were out of view Bernie helped serena to take the children back inside their home,and Bernie went to change from her senior officers dress uniform, she put her tight black jeans and her large white shirt,the twins were fast asleep,serena had managed to take Cameron upstairs and Bernie had taken Charlotte upstairs, without neither baby waking up.
Serena made them both a cup of tea,do you want to talk about what you were asked after your presentation serena asked, Bernie told her that today was the twins first birthday, and that she knew about as much as serena did, when Bernie said that, serena smiled at her,you will tell me what they expect of you if you should have to go after you have had your meeting on Monday won't you, sweetheart, there is no way I will be going anywhere until our baby is born anyway,so please don't worry about anything just as soon as I know you will know darling,but please don't worry about anything, she then placed her hands upon her face and gave her the sweetest kiss she had ever had.
The rest of the say was spent, with them cuddled up against each other talking about how the day had gone,and just how proud serena was, after all she was married to the mos highly decorated female soldier in the british army.
The twins woke at about 15.00hrs they went and bought them downstairs,so that they could be fed,and changed, and enjoy the rest of their first birthday, playing with what toys were downstairs
Bernie and serena were sitting on their large settee,when they both looked at Charlotte,who had pulled herself up by grabbing the edge of the cushion,she steadied herself and took her first steps, both mummy's looked at each other, and serena encouraged her to take another step towards her,which the little girl did so,when she got to serena,they all clapped her
for taking her first steps.
Cameron not one for being left out tried to pull himself up by grabbing bernies hands,which he did successfully and he also took his first steps towards serena and again they clapped him.
Later that afternoon Jasmine and Morven turned up to bring the twins birthday presents over,bernie made them all a drink, and serena being the very proud wife, showed Bernie's latest medal off and saying that she is the most highly decorated female soldier in british military history, Morven gave Bernie a hug and congratulated her on her achievements,not only as a surgeon, but also as a soldier, which Bernie thanked her for.

Chapter Text

Jasmine and Morven left at around 19.00hrs,bernie and Serena got the twins ready for bed time and they were both out for the count,after all they, had all had a very big day.
Bernie woke early on the Saturday morning, she went downstairs,made herself a hot drink,and she started to put pink and blue banners in and around the house,she blew the balloons up,once all the party decorations had been put up she started to cry.
She heard serena coming down the stairs and into the living room,bernie was in the kitchen making her a hot drink,serena went into the kitchen and saw that Bernie had been crying.
What is the matter my love, serena asked her it is just me being stupid as usual was bernies respone ,what do you mean? serena was getting worried,what could have ever upset her
big macho army medic of a wife,please sweetheart come and sit down and just tell me what has happened, there is nothing we cannot work out between us serena told her.
If I have to go on another tour of duty next year,and as I expect,it will be another 8 month tour, then,i will miss, our wedding anniversary, I will miss the twins 2nd birthday, and I will also miss the babies first birthday, that serena is what is upsetting me so much.
Well we will cross those bridges as and when we come to them, so please do not upset yourself my darling,serena went and sat on her lap and wrapped her arms around bernies shoulders and gave her the most lingering of softest sweetest kisses she had ever experienced,which Bernie gratefully received
When they parted their lips bernie thanked her for her words of comfort, they rested their foreheads against each other,and cuddled each other,and their warm embrace was broken by the children waking up and wanting their breakfast,the 2 women went and took them downstairs and placed them in their high chairs, so they could have their breakfast, which usually consisted of a small bowl of porridge oats,as usual serena fed Cameron while Bernie fed Charlotte, and more often then not charlotte always ended up with more on her bib than she had eaten,and more often then not sometimes it would also find it self thrown on bernies shirt,just to see her wife and daughter in the same sort of a mess always bought a smile and a tear to serena face, Bernie could fix a tank, perform major surgery,not matter what was going on in and around her,but she could not feed their one year old daughter,without getting into some sort of mess.
Bernie went and got the childrens clean clothes from their nurseries and she changed her shirt, when she went back downstairs serena was feeding Charlotte without any problems,
Serena just looked at her, and told Bernie that there was a knack to getting charlotte to have her breakfast,which serena had perfected,and she told her that Bernie would get the hang of spoon feeding their children eventually.
They started to prepare the food for the party as everyone who had been invited would start arriving from 12.00hrs and the party would be finished for about 15.30hrs.
The first to arrive was Jasmine and baby Marcus, Bernie asked where Morven was? she got phoned into work as sacha levy had been taken ill.
Once everyone had arrived they had a house full of children all under the age of 3 and all the parents were either having a ,drink in the garden or having something to eat in the conservatory, even Henrik Hanssen had turned up with presents for the twins, he was invited to stay if he wanted to but he had a prior engagement to attend to.
Serena did not notice the woman who was so amazed as to how much time and energy she had to sit and read stories to all the children, aswell as look after the adults,my god the
woman who was watchingg her, was so proud looking after their own two children, and watching another 10 under 3 year olds and being the perfect hostess, as well as being the perfect wife, that woman watching serena, was her wife and my word,she was so emotional that serena could cope with all that was going on around her, totally unflapable,the perfect wife and mother she thought to herself, and that woman, was bernies wife and the mother to their 2.5 children.

The rest of the weekend went so quickly, Bernie had got her dress uniform all pressed ,because she had a meeting at 09.00hrs at holby barracks, in regard to the possible tour of duty
to iran, the following year.
As usual Bernie awoke early,whenever she had an appointments to see her senior officers, she was unable to sleep for more than 3 hrs as she kept envisaging different scenarios, what would they ask her?, what would they expect of her?,would she be a frontline soldier or a frontline medic?,how long would she be away 6 or 8 months or longer?.
As she was gathering her thoughts about the meeting ,her train of thought was broken by the sight of her beautiful wife,serena ,sitting next to her, what is wrong darling?, serena asked her,i am just contemplating about what may or may not be said today at the meeting that has been arranged for my benefit as to what, where, and when my next tour takes place, and what is expected of me and my soldiers, and medical staff.
Serena tried to calm her fears by saying that she might have the choice of either being a soldier or medic, Bernie shook her head, if I know the senior officers, everything will have been finalised by now, they just need me to agree with whatever they have discussed, but surely you need to be involved with the planning and objectives and strategic plans for whatever the operation involves serena asked.
When you are senior officer, you are just expected to go along with what has already been discussed,bernie told her. Bernie started to get emotional, if I am expected to go on tour,well, I have explained what significant dates which are important to me I will miss, with tese words swirling around Serena's head, she told Bernie that she would skype her on their wedding anniversary, the twins 2nd birthday ,and the babie's first birthday.
Yeah, but it won't be the same as being here with all of you my family.serena wrapped her arm around her and kissed her well when you come back we will have a big family party and we will invite all our friends from holby city hospital and the army.
The 2 women sat with their armswrapped around each other and kissed each other with such passion,it was scorching hot.
Bernie started to get dressed for her meeting,serena bathed and dressed the children, bernies official car arrived for her 08.05 hrs to take her to the barracks in time for her meeting
at holby barracks.
When they arrived there the sergeant opened the car door for her, and saluted , good morning Major Wolfe he announced, Bernie reciprocated by saluting him and greeted him with the same greeting that he had offered to her.Bernie was the escorted to the operational manouveres office, where all the hierarchy were waiting for Bernie to join them.

Chapter Text

On the Monday morning the official army car arrived to take Bernie to holby barracks for her meeting with her senior officers, they all had a cup of tea before the meeting began.
The meeting began at 10.15am, with the brigadier explain all the objectives and directives, who the main targets were.
The operation was to be called ''operation pegasus'' and Bernie would be in command with several high ranking officers to oversee the entire operation,and set strategies, and map readings,as Bernie would be a frontline soldier, once again Major Edward Campbell would oversee the medical treatment of soldiers and as well as be in overall charge of the hospital section at the camp.
Bernie was given her instructions, when she would be expected to be ready to leave, although her immediate c.o. knew that serena was expecting the couple's third child, which was due in the first week in September, they had delayed bernies departure until the second week in October, so she could be present for the birth and also help serena get into a routine, after all she would have 3 children under the age of 2 yrs, when Bernie was told of this news she was grateful because she would otherwise have had to ask for a leave of absence,which the army would have given her anyway.
The main objective of ''operation pegasus'' was to try and find and capture the tyrant of iran Saddam Hussain, he was the army's no1 target as well as his ''generals'' and foot soldiers and hopefully liberate the city of Mosul and hand it back to its citizens.
When the briefing had been concluded everyone left the operational manouveres room, and they were escorted to the senior officers mess for drinks and a general talk about the next tour,Colonel Jameson was talking to Bernie as to whether she was looking forward to another tour where she would be in control again, she said that if the army hierarchy had faith in her to lead from the front, then yes she would be,however she started to tell the colonel that during this next tour she would miss her second wedding anniversary the twins second birthday, to which he replied ''well you could always skype serena and do the same with the twins'' and although I understand it will not be the same perhaps all of you could have a big celebration party when you get back home.
The official car drove Bernie back home, and serena asked how the meeting had gone, Bernie told her that this tour of duty would be starting nearly 3 months early, as the troops were low on the ground,and once again Bernie would be in control, with several high ranking officers there to oversee the operation,serena asked her if she was going to be a frontline medic or soldier.Bernie began to get upset at telling her wife that she would be a frontline soldier.
With that news ringing in their ears both women started to get upset, Bernie held Serena's hands and told her that she did't have to leave until the second week in October, so she would be with serena when she gave birth, and she would also be able to help serena establish a routine after all she would have 2 children who were not yet 2 and a new born as well.
Bernie also explained to her that at least once a month there would be a meeting at the barracks.
The next few weeks flew by Bernie and serena went baby shopping, they also decorated another room in their house for the latest arrival,it was done in neutral colours, because they didn't know if the baby was a boy or girl.
Wednesday 01 09 2001.
Serena woke Bernie at 01.45am up asking her to phone Morven to come over, because she had started with her labour contractions,bernie phoned her and she was straight over after all her and Jasmine only lived 20 minutes away from Bernie and serena, when she got to their house Bernie got serena in the car and straight to holby city hospital, where Derwood Thomson was waiting for her.
When she had been examined by derwood,bernie was allowed to go and sit with her,she started to rub serenas shoulders and rub the small of her back which serena told her was not doing any good and asked her to stop it.
Serena was using the gas and air that derwood had suggested using, Bernie kept wiping her face with a damp flannel to keep her cool.
Derwood went in to examine serena, and some of the A.A.U staff had been asking how serena was doing he just told everyone, that serena was fine, serena squeezed Bernie's hand to told her that her waters had broken,with that news derwood re examined serena and told them that the birth should not be that much longer now.

Bernie just as when Cameron and Charlotte were born she was a blubbering wreck, seeing someone so small and perfect, it just melted the hardend soldiers heart, as well as showing her wife just how bloody proud she was of her.
Bernie was sitting next to serena, with her arms wrapped around her gazing so lovingly at their 2nd son, 3rd child, sweetheart I will be the twins in this afternoon after you have had a rest,.
Serena asked Bernie if the staff on A.A.U had been told of the latest member of the wolfe family,not to my knowledge Bernie replied, would you go and let them know please serena asked her, with that Bernie left serena alone and went to A.A.U she walked to the nurses station where Fletch and Raf were sitting down, what brings you here then Bernie Fletch asked, just the birth of Edward James Wolfe born at o8.13 this morning, with that Fletch called all the staff.

Chapter Text

Bernie went back to Serena's room after informing all their collegues about Edward being born and everyone was so pleased for the couple.
Two days later Serena was discharged from the hospital, Bernie arrived with the twins, to which Cameron looked and said ''baba'' which made both women to well up, as he had only been saying '' mama'' and ''ma'' Charlotte could say just about the same.
When they made their way down to the entrance to maternity, Fletch called them both over, to the nurses station, Fletch congratulated them on having another son, but he wanted to present them with a couple of presents that the staff had bought for him.
Once the gifts had been presented to both women, Fletch asked how they were going to cope with 3 children,to which Serena explained ''Bernie is with me until the first/second week in September so we are going to work out a routine so that when Bernie does go away, she would be in a position to cope, with the children'' Bernie joked about with Fletch asking him if he wanted to help Serena whilst she was away on tour, he told both women that when Bernie does go away then he and Raf would be more than willing to help out in needed.
Serena thanked him and told him that she would bear that in mind. Once they got back home, Serena went and put Edward in his moses basket, whilst Bernie made the twins their lunch,and made Serena and herself a sandwich and a drink of coffee.
Once they had all had lunch and the Cameron and Charlotte were having their afternoon nap, Bernie and Serena started to discuss how they would work out the routine so Serena would be in a position to manage ,whilst Bernie was away.
Edward was a quiet baby, like the twins he was sleeping through the night within 7 days after his birth, which everyone told them that they were lucky to have a baby who slept straight through at such an early stage.
The next 3 weeks were just a blur, Bernie had packed all her uniforms, fatigues,dress suits,everything that she needed to take with her.
The colonel informed Bernie of her departure date, Sunday 01-10-2001,she asked if that was the date her tour was due to start, the colonel informed her that,the date she had been given was infact the day she would be flying out to Iran.

Chapter Text

Sunday 1-10-2001 that soon came serena had worked out a routine that worked well for not only for her,but also the children.
Bernies flight was due to leave at 16.00hrs from R.A.F Northolt,all her uniforms and dress suits ,and all her personal effects had all been flown out to the base in Iran.
Serena was getting the children ready for their first visit to R.A.F Northolt,bernie had showered earlier in the day although the flight was not due to leave until 16.00hrs everyone involved in operation "foxtrot" had to be at the base for 13.00hrs.
Again bernie would be in control of the operation,with senior officers their to help and advise bernie,if the need arose .
Once they were all ready Serena got the children into the car ,bernie knew that this part of her going away always upset Serena,however she had come to understand why bernie always made sure that they all spent the week before her tour was due to start as it would be either 6 or 8 months before they would see each other again.
They were all in the car and Serena started the drive to the R.A.F base where in just a few hours time her beloved wife would be on a flight going out to one of the world,s troublespots,trying to bring peace back to wherever she went as well as treating wou ded soliders on the front line, ,.
Once they got to the base Bernie had to go and report to the commanding office,who was Lieutenant Colonel Jameson,who greeted bernie with a firm handshake.
She was then told that their would be a meeting about the objectives and directives and who and what she would be in control of.
Serena got the children some toys to try and pacify them ,until it was time for bernie to board the chinhook plane that ws bound for Iran.
All the senoir officers were talking about their families and wives,so bernie introduced Serena and their children to all the higher ranking officers,who all commeted as to how beautiful not only her wife was ,but also their 3young children.
The announcement that Serena was dreading boomed out of the p.a system,"would all military personnel due for tour to Iran please begin to board the flight to Iran now,as we will be taking off at 16.00hrs"".
That was the message Serena always hated to hear,Bernie went and gave her wife a long embrace and an even longer kiss,she then kissed all her children goodbye "see you all soon my darlings"were bernies last words to her beloved family,before she boarded the plane that would take her to one of the world's trouble spots,she turned back to wave goodbye to her family, not realising that when she returned 8 months later, she would have done the impossible.

Chapter Text

The plane landed at the R.A.F base at 08.00 hrs on the Monday morning all army personnel were driven to camp Bastion where they would be based for the next 8 months.
They were greeted by Lieutenant Colonel Jameson,who was in charge of all military operations in Iran and the surrounding areas,all the senior officers were told to be at the operations tent at 12.00hrs so the could be briefed on all aspects of operation "Foxtrot".
Once all senior officer's were assembled in the operations tent,they were informed that Bernie would be in total charge ,of the tour but she would have her senior officers jusr she needed any backup or advise and when she was out on patrol either during the daylight hours or night time patrols Bernie's boss would take charge while she was out with her "soldiers"as she always referred to them,they all respected Bernie and she respected them as well.
When the meeting was over Bernie went to her quaters and set up her skyp account ,so she could keep in touch with her beloved family o. Either a daily basis and talk to her wife about how their children were developing and how Bernie was doing out in iran.
Bernie had sent Serena a text message asking her to set up her skyp account ,which Serena had already done, once Bernie had logged on ,she saw the 5 most important people in her life,her precious wife and beautiful children .
When they both saw ea h other for the first time since bernie. Had left they both became emotional at seeing each other and as usual once Bernie saw their 3 young children Bernie became a blubbering wreck as the 2eldest both called her "ma" and Serena was encouraging both children to wave at her and blow kisses to her.
Bernie wa ed back at them and blew kisses to them,then it was time for her to talk to Serena about how she was once again in charge of the operation.
When they had finished their conversation they both blew kisses to each other and if they could not skype every day or evening then they both agreed to text each other every day if possible.
The first 3 months flew by in a blur when they could skype each other they would sometimes it was impossible due to operational needs,however they sent each other text messages sometimes Bernie would take a couple of days to reply but Serena understood why and she had got used to it,although Bernie tried to reply as quickly as possible .
Christmas day Bernie was out on patrol so she asked Serena to skype her on christmas eve so she could wish her family all a merry christmas and tell Serena where she had put all their christmas presents, she had bought the children toys,books as well as clothes ,whren Serena found the children's present's she found a large velvet coloured box with large bow wrapped around the box, Serena knew immediately that that was her present,when she opened the box she saw the most beautiful diamond earrings and matching necklace.
When Serena skyped her on christmas eve she thanked her for the beautiful present t g at Bernie had bought her and the presents that she had bought the children were perfect.
Serena filmed the children opening their christmas presents and how they were laughing and enoying all their new toys,
Cameron had little pedal car,which Serena had problems getting him to leave alone whilst he had his christmas lunch, Charlotte had a dolls pram which like cameron she would not leave alone,not even for her lunch Edward was completely unaware what was happening as he was busy sleeping.
Christmas and New year came and went quickly for bernie,who was out on patrol all christmas as well as new year,but she never objected because she knew that when she got back home Bernie and Serena would have their christmas day and that was what Bernie looked forward to.
Bernie's tour was going so quickly it was nearly over it was due to finish in May and she would have a fortnight at home with her family then she would resume her job at Holby city Military hospital as well as having monthly meetings at the barracks,but she was used to it
THURSDAY 25TH APRIL.
Bernie was out on evening patrol with her she had her most trusted and loyal soldiers out with her,they had received intelligence that the tyrant Saddam Hussain may be in the area that Bernie and her soldiers were patrolling.
Bernie had her night time binoculars with her,she would be able to see if anyone was hiding ,because the binoculars also detected where someone was hiding because they also picked up a person's body heat.
She waled behind some pipes that were due to be layed shortly due to there being no water facilities to the nearest village,through her binoculars she saw an outline of a male ,she beckons three of her troop, Darren,Andy,and Wayne to surround the front entrance to the pipes,she would have 1 soldier with her she beckons Phil,over to her .
Bernie then slowly walks towards the man in the pipe and tells him to move,he refuses,she then tells him to move or she will kill him where he sits,slowly he moves towards Bernie,move it man ,the 3soldiers fron the front run to the back of the pipe to help bernie arrest the man,
Bernie radio's for a vehicle to take her and her soldier's take their captive to the military police station.
The armoured jeep arrives less than 5minutes after Bernie has requested it

Once they arrived at the military prison,Bernie frogmarched their prisoner inside,where they were greeted by 5 American Military police officers.
Bernie gave her name,rank,and number,they called for their general,who in turn asked who the British soldiers were,and from what regiment they were assigned to,Bernie once again gave all her details to the general,followed by the 4 soldiers who were out on patrol with her.
The prisoner was taken to a cell,where later he would be questioned at length about the crimes that he had committed against humanity.
Bernie and her soldiers were requested to write out the statements as to how the capture of Saddam Hussein had been planned,Bernie explained that they had been given intelligence that Saddam Hussein may or may not be in the area that Bernie and her most trusted foot soldiers were due to do their evening patrol.
Less than 15 minutes after Bernie's captive had been handed over to the American Military Police all of Bernie's and the soldier's most senior officers arrived, and wanted details of how the capture of one of the world's most wanted men had come about.
All 4 soldier's as well as bernie were driven back to camp Bastion,where they would once again have to write out statements surrounding the capture of Saddam Hussein where he was captured ,who did what and so forth.
When everyone got back to the base,all were given a rousing round of applause,not only because British Armed Forces were responsible for capturing Saddam Hussein but ,the British Armed Forces most highly decorated female serving soldier Major Bernie Wolfe, was responsible for his eventual capture and the fact that now he knew he would have to be bought to book for his crimes against humanity.

Bernie was due to fly from Iran at 12.00 midday on Friday 26th of April,and hopefully land at R.A.F Northolt at about 19.00hrs that sameday.
She phoned Serena. And told her of her departure time,and where she would be arriving.
Serena quickly started gettng everything ready for her wife's return, making sure that the children would be ready to travel to the R.A.F base,which was roughly about two hours drive from where they lived,
Serena started to get the children into their car seats,in readiness for the long journey to meet the most important person in all their lives ,Serena,'s beloved wife and momma to their 3young children.
They arrived at the air base earlier than anticipated ,due to there being hardly any traffic on the motorways,.
When she got to see the clerical staff,she had to go and say who she was waiting for,and what regiment she was attached to.
Serena was told that Bernie would be landing within the hour,so Serena and the children could go and wait with the other wives and girlfriends, who like Serena were waiting for the plane to arrive .
At 18.15the announcement that everyone who was waiting for their soldier husband,boyfriend,wife was made,that the plane had just landed
Once everyone had collected all their belongings all the soldiers started to make their way to the seating area where anxious partners were waiting with anticipation,because at long last they would be safe back with their families.
Serena waited patiently,just where was bernie she thought,then out of the corner of her eye,she at long last caught a glimpse of her beautiful wife.
Bernie dropped all her kit and ran to Serena and their children,she was so glad to be back with. her family,especially with what had happene less than 24 hours earlier.
Bernie went and got all her kit and everything else,and then all 5of them made the long journey back home

Chapter Text

Once they arrived back home,Serena started to get the children ready for bed so that Serena and Bernie could have a few hours to themselves,after Bernie's exhaustive tour and long flight back home.
Bernie gave Serena a hand to get the children settled, but Cameron and Charlotte were too excited to sleep as their mumma had come home she started to read to Cameron while Serena was reading to Charlotte,within 5minutes both the eldest children were sleeping soundly,whilst Edward was completely unawares as to what was going on around him.Once Serena had changed him and bathed him,like his elder siblings,he too was out for the count.
Serena made Bernie a sandwich and she handed her a large whiskey,once she had literally demolished those like her children she too was out like a light,Serena got a duvet from their room and joined Bernie who was sleeping and snoring loudly on the large settee and just 2hours after Bernie had landed everyone was fast asleep.
Serena and Bernie were awoken with the youngest member of their family wanting his breakfast,who in turn woke up his big brother and sister,with everyone now awake Serena began to get the children their breakfasts whilst Bernie was enjoying a rather long hot shower.
When everyone had been showered and had breakfast Serena let the 2eldest play with their toys in the living room,whilst Bernie started to get to know their youngest child,because when Bernie went to Iran he was barely a month old,and she had missed him getting his first tooth.
Serena asked Bernie how she was feeling after what had happened in Iran,to which she replied "nervous,frightened,wondering if what had happened had really happened,when Serena showed her all the t.v. coverage she became upset,Serena asked what was wrong.
I have never been so frightened in my life being in one of the world's most hostile countries,not knowing who or what we might encounter what may or may not be the right course of action,however everything went right for us all and we are all home now for at least 8 months until the next tour wherever that might be.
The children all had their lunches and were ready for their afternoon sleep,Bernie gave Serena help to put them to bed.
Bernie took Serena's hand and lead her to their bedroom,now,my love I believe I have a task to fulfill that I failed to do last night,Serena looked at Bernie and asked what she meant,well how you like the soldier who captured Saddam Hussein to make love to you,with that they entered their bedroom,only to emerge some time later,when Edward wanted his tea.

Chapter Text

They emerged from their bedroom,Serena went to Edward's nursery picked him up and took him downstairs, whilst Bernie went and got the twins from their nurseries,and took them into the kitchen where Serena was preparing the families evening meal.
Once Bernie and Serena had feed their children they let the eldest two watch a spongebob dvd(both Cameron and Charlotte loved the talking sponge) ,whilst Bernie got their youngest ready to go to bed.
When all three children were sleeping soundly,Bernie explained that she would need to go to the barracks on Monday morning as she would have to give a detailed report about how the capture of Saddam Hussein came about .
Serena asked how long did she think she would be at the barracks,Bernie told her that she maybe there for at least 3 hours, but when she had finished Bernie would be taking her wife and children to the nearest travel agency so they could book a nice long holiday somewhere.
With these word ringing in her ears Serena began looking on line to find some family orientated holiday centres .
Serena asked Bernie whether she wanted to go abroad or go somewhere quiet and peaceful in England,and as what was now becoming the usual Bernie told Serena t h at where she and the children wanted to then that is where they would go.
Bernie arrived at the barracks at 08.30am on the Monday morning in full dress uniform, and she gave the senior ranking officers the version of events, how Bernie and her most trusted foot soldiers captured Saddam Hussain,once the meeting was completed Bernie drove herself back home ,only to find 4large suitcases packed and her wife and family all ready dressed waiting to go on their much longed for holiday.
Bernie asked Serena what was going on, well the plane for Florida leaves at 18.00 and we are waiting for you to get changed.
When did you arrange all this Bernie asked, well you allways do kind gestures for us,so we thought just for once we did something nice for you,that bought a tear to her eyes she went and got changed and all the family got into their car and drove to the airport .
Once they had checked in they had something to eat,and the announcer called for passenger for the flight to Florida to start boarding the plane,the plane left on time and they were finally going on a family holiday ,which both Bernie and Serena were looking forward to with their young family.

Chapter Text

Once their flight landed at Miami International airport they went and went through customs ,with that sorted they made their way to the private villa that Serena had booked for them.
When they got there Serena started to unpack the suitcases,whilst Bernie sat with the children and gave them their lunch, once the children had been fed ,both women went and put them down to sleep.
While the children were sleeping both Serena and Bernie also caught up on their sleep,all the family didn't wake until 8.00the following morning.
Once everyone had been showered and had their breakfast ,Bernie went to pick up the hire car,when she retur ed to the villa Serena got the children strapped in to their seats,and they went to see the sights.
When the first day came to a close,Serena didn't know who was more tired Bernie or the children, because when Serena went into the lounge she found her wife and children completely out of it however,Bernie as usual was snoring lightly which bought a smile to Serena's face.
Over the next 13day's there was not a venue that they had been to, Bernie took Cameron and Edward to Cape Canaveral while Serena took Charlotte to see the princesses at Walt Disney World,however Charlotte was not intrested with the princesses she wanted to go with Bernie and their son's to Cape Canaveral.
They enjoyed some of the rides, but all 5were happier making sandcastles and burying either Serena or Bernie in the sand which made the children gurgle which made both women laugh at the fa t that their children were enjoying themselves.
Once their holiday had finished Bernie thanked her wife for the wonderful holiday that she had arranged for her wife and family.
When they got back home,they all went to bed, and Bernie as usual was having problems settling back to sleep,so she didn't disturb Serena she went and slept downstairs.
When Serena woke up the following morning, she wondered where Bernie was,just as she was about to get out of bed Bernie walked in with a cup of tea and a kiss for her wife,which was the normal for Bernie to do every morning ,when she was not on tour.
When everyone was sitting downstairs Serena started to go through the post ,which had been building up whilst they were away.
There was a couple for Bernie from the barracks, and one from the Army Awards Commission,Bernie opened it, she was to be honoured with another medal,but it did not say what the medal would be as yet.
There was one foe Serena from Holby city hospital, a part time vacancy had become available for a vascular surgeon and Serena had been nominated as she was the best choice.
She showed Bernie the letter and they agreed that they would discuss the letter later thatnight once the children were in bed.

Chapter Text

On e the children had been settled down for the evening,Bernie and Serena started to discuss the letter that had been delivered to Serena,whilst she was on holiday with her family.
The vacancy was for a part time vascular surgeon,based at Holby city hospital.
The successful candidate would be offered a 12 month contract to begin with working 3 days per week Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting at 08.30am until 13.00pm.
Two days would be working on the wards,treating patients assisting in surgeries where needed and the 3rd day would be admin writing reports,sorting patient care,etc.
Bernie knew deep down that this was Serena's ideal job,because they had both agreed that once their young family were growing up if Bernie agreed to it then Serena would go back to work only on a part time basis.
Bernie told Serena that if she wanted,she would ask for a leave of absence so Bernie would be at home to look after the children.
Serena told Bernie that they would be able to take the eldest two children to the hospital nursery where other staff members took their own children to whilst they worked their own shift and the youngest one could be in the creche until Serena had finished her shift.
Bernie told Serena that they would go and take a look at the childcare facilities, if and when she got the job.
With those words still ringing in her ears, she went and got out all her medical degree certificates as well as updating her cv, with Bernie's help she also wrote a presentation.
With all the necessary paperwork that she would need to take with her, she phoned Henrik Hanssen she phoned for an interview.
Mrs.wolfe,I don't think you understand,myself and the board want you to come and start working here within the next 7 days if Major Wolfe is ok with you coming back to work part time.
Serena told Mr.Hanssen that Bernie had no problem with her working part time, both women were both invited to a formal meeting regarding Serena's actual role within the vascular team and they could also iron out any problems that either Bernie or Serena had any issues with.
Bernie asked about the childcare facilities, all 3 went and looked at the childcare facilities both were impressed with what they had seen.
With every thing answered how they expected Mr.Hanssen to answer Serena finally gave him his answer.
Yes I accept the position of part time vascular surgeon.

Chapter Text

Monday May 25th was the day when Serena started working part time as a vascular surgeon at Holby city.
First person she saw was Henrik Hanssen who greeted her with a peck on the cheek,he asked if she wanted a guided tour of the hospital or go straight to work.
She wanted to go and get settled in to her office and familiarise herself with procedures and any new rules or changes to personnel, once she had what she needed to do workwise, Henrik Hanssen invited her to a short meeting upstairs in his office regarding her induction,which would be taking place on the Tuesday Morning.
With their meeting over he escorted her down to the nurses station,where he would introduce her to the staff,well those new members of staff who did not know her.
First person to see Serena andMr Hanssen walking downstairs would be Fletch, well 'ello Serena what you doin' here he asked, Mr Hanssen asked Fletch to gather all the staff together for a quick meeting regarding the newest member of staff.
He waited until all staff were gathered at the nurses station,""Ladies and gentlemen may I introduce our newest member of staff Dr s Campbell,who is a vascular surgeon and is here for 12 months working part time "when he had finished his speech he bid her good luck and went back upstairs.
Once Mr Hanssen had gone back upstairs she was talking to Fletch and Raf about any changes,or any one she needed to be wary of,Fletch and Raf looked at each other and both said no we are all a family,down here,.
Serena walked away from the nurses station and made her way back to her office and studied her rota for the week,she would have her induction on Tuesday and begin working in Ernest on Wednesday.

Chapter Text

Bernie was sitting in her office at Holby city Military Hospital starring out of her window,when she was suddenly disturbed by a knock on her door,come in she called out,and in walked Colonel Jameson.
She offered him a seat in front of her,he put the few files down on her desk and ,he wanted to know what the matter was, because Bernie was not her usual chipper self.
To be honest Andrew she said "Serena has gone back to work today, only part time and I am just thinking about how she is getting on" the 2 eldest children are in the hospital nursery and the youngest is in the creche, and it is the first time we have left the children with anyone other than some of our friends and I am sorry, but I am just being anxious as to how Serena is coping without the children and how the children are settling in to a new environment where there are other children, are they enjoying playi g with other children or not,
Bernie what you are feeling it is only natural,Serena going back to work after taki g time out to have the children,I was exactly the same when my wife went back to work, I had all manner of questions going on in my head, was she coping, how were the children were they coping with being looked by someone other than myself or my wife, but you what Bernie I had nothing to worry about because Annabel coped better than we both thought and the children were enjoying playing with other children their own age.
But I really do understand about your concerns,so what I am going to say to you now is, go home and when Serena and the children get home just focus on how Serena's day has gone and if the children have enjoyed themselves in their new surroundings.
On your way home stop off at the nearest gift shop and buy Serena something that shows her that you are proud of the fact that she is working part time as well as looking after 3young children and even if it something small that small gesture will go a long way, and tonight while she is relaxing in the shower you get the children ready for bed and get them settled down for the evening, and then ask Serena about her first day back at work, because when you show that you really want to know how her day has gone she will feel appreciative of the fa t that she has managed to get herself a Job ,and that you want to know just how her day has gone.
With all those s ords ringing in her ears she collected her coat and bag fom the stand in the corner,and drove into Holby city centre first thing she did was to go to the florist and have a bouquet of pink and white roses sent to her wife at Holby city hospital,then she went and went into the nearest jewellery shop and bought her a pair of white gold and diamond earrings which she knew Serena would like, and she also got Serena a bottle of her favourite perfume.
Once she got home she wrapped the giftsup and placed them inside the gift bag, she also started to prepare their lunch as she waited for th e time to come around to 13.00hrs because that was the time Serena was due to finish her first shift at Holby city hospital, taking into account the time it would take to collect the children from the nursery and the creche and get them in to their car seats, Bernie thought that they should all be back home for about 13.45pm,because when they all got home she wanted to know just how well everyone's day had gone.

Chapter Text

Serena and the children got back home for 14.00hrs, and she was surprised to see Bernie at home, she asked why she was back home so early,Bernie explained that her mind was not really focused at work, as she was concerned as to how Serena was coping in her first day at work, her first day without the children.
Serena explained that Monday and Tuesday were basically like induction days I e meeting new colleagues and sorting out her working rota and also sorting out her contract as well as other important details.
Bernie went and made her a hot drink and made the children some lunch,while Serena had her drink Bernie gave the children their lunches and when they were finished s he went and put all 3 in thir beds/cot for a a fternoon sleep, which all 3 were in need of.
Bernie went and sat by Serena and held her hand and asked how her day had been,not that much to tell you to be honest sweetheart just meeting the staff, settling in to my office,sorting out my rota out was Serena's reply.
Bernie took Serena's hand lead her upstairs into their bedroom,within seconds of the pair reaching their bedroom, Serena had Bernie pinned up against the bedroom door,both women could not get each other undressed quick enough.
Once both women were naked Bernie hacd Serena on her back,Bernie kissing every inch of her wife's svelte figure not missing an inch any where.
Before long Serena was s reaming in ecstasy as Bernie made her cum time after time,Serena took Bernie's hand and licked all her cum of Bernie's strong fingers and her hand as well,Serena then told Bernie that she needed her to put the strap on and fuck Serena's brain out of her as she needed it.
With those words in her ear Bernie went and put the strap on and she put the rather large double headed dildo inside herself and the remainder into the strap on.
Serena lay on her back with her legs wide open pleading for Bernie to give her fucking she needed, Bernie walked back into the bedroom and saw Serena was waiting for her.
Bernie went to the bed and climbed onto the bed and she started to caress her wife's rather large chest, rubbing her nipples between her fingers, whilst her other hand was playing with her enlarged clit,
Serena begged Bernie to give her a bloody good seeing to as she was desparate for her release, with those words in her ears, Bernie gently guided the large phallic object into her wife's deliciously dripping wet pussey and began to thrust the large dildo in and out of her wife's pussey.
Serena was moaning in ecstasy as her wife really gave her a bloody good fucking,once Bernie had fucked her wife's pussey ,she told her to get on all fours, and she proceeded to fuck her wife from behind,to which Serena totally enjoyed, when Bernie had finished giving her wife a good seeing to,Serena began to deep throat the dildo and lick all of her cum off the phallic object which would end up being all arou d her lips and mouth.

Chapter Text

Once both women had made love to each other,they lay entwined in each other's bodies making small talk,mainly about their children as well as Serena's job.
Charlotte started to stir from her mid afternoon nap,which in turn woke the 2 boys up from their nap ,both women got up and put their dressing gowns on and took the children downstairs for their tea ,while Serena started to make their evening meal,Bernie started to play with the eldest two children whilst Edward was resting in her arms ,
Serena and Bernie had fed the children their meals they then proceeded to get them ready for their bathtime which all 3 children enjoyed as they would end up soaking their mums in water.
Once the children were sleeping soundly Bernie asked Serena if she would consider going back to work full time,once the children were old enough,to which Serena replied that she would not go back to work full time,not unless Bernie agreed to it,but Serena knew that Bernie did not like her wife working anyway,but they had agreed that Serena could go back to work part time once their family ws complete.
Serena knew that deep down their family was not complete,because when the couple got together Serena made no denying the fact that she wanted a large family, being an only child herself she missed out on not having younger siblings to be a big sister to,Bernie on the other hand did have a brother,but they had not spoken to each other,not since Bernie had come out as being gay, her parents also disowned Bernie because of her sexuality,.
The subject soon got around to Serena wanting another child,the couple had decided to wait until the twins were at least 4yrs old and Edward 3yrs old before they wanted to try for another child.
Serena was in her element being in a house full of children's laughing and playing,so much that secretly she longed for her 12 month position at Holby city hospital to finish sooner rather than later,she loved nothing more than being the perfect wife and mother,it was a role that suited Serena right down to the ground.
However much she wanted her job to come to an end she knew that she also enjoyed being a medic making surgical decisions, doing admin, paperwork sorting staff rota's.
Both women went back to work Bernie at Holby city Military hospital and Serena at Holby city hospital, there were day's when Serena would end up working later than agreed,much to her annoyance because there were some doctor's who had the attitude that Serena would stop and finish up writing reports and prescribing the medication what the patient required and at what dosage and how often..
6months into her 12month job, she had one such day,she had been in surgery all day,with either Morven or Jasmine to assist her,which to Serena she thought was just a little bit unfair,as she needed surgeons with more experience than either Jasmine or Morven,as the surgeries were complex procedures, but the other surgeons on call left Serena to it.
Serena finally finished working at 15.00hrs, she made her way down to the hospital nursery to collect the 2eldest children she then made her way to the creche to collect the youngest child.
When she got home she put all 3 children in their play pen,and began to write out her resignation letter,.

Chapter Text

Bernie arrived home after finishing her shift at the Military hospital where she was based,her normal working pattern was 08.30am until 17.00hrs Monday to Friday and she always got home at 17.50 dependent on the traffic.
She put her key in to the lock and let herself in and called out to Serena that she was back home,she went into the living room and saw the three children in their play pen and made her way into the kitchen ,where she found a very tear stained and upset Serena.
Sweetheart what is wrong ,Bernie pleaded with her wife to tell her what was wrong,Serena told her how a lot of the senior surgeons who work when Serena is on duty leave her to finish off in surgery and expect her to write up the reports and sort out the medication,how much to be administered and at what intervals.
And she also told Bernie that on more than one occasion she was left with 2 junior surgeons in training I e Jasmine and Morven, although Serena never blamed the 2girls, sometimes she needed the help of fully trained surgeons as most of Serena's operations were long and complex.
With all that in mind Bernie told Serena to hand in her notice with immediate effect,Serena also told Bernie that on a couple of occasions she had been late in collecting the children from either nursery or the creche,which upset Serena as one thing she was picky about was punctuality she was a stickler for time keeping.
Bernie went and sat by Serena and wrapped her arm around her shoulders and pulled her closer towards he r and gave her a long lingering kiss and told her wife to give up her job,because if she wasn't happy than Bernie was more than happy for her wife to stay at home and look after their 3 children.

Chapter Text

Once Bernie had told Serena to hand in her notice, Serena went and gave Bernie her already written resignation letter, Bernie told her that she would take her to Holby city hospital the following day.
Serena woke early the following morning, she went into all 3nurseries to make sure the childrenwere still sleeping soundly, she went down stairs and made herself a cup of coffee,and just starred at the letter of resignation,was she doing the right thing? What if Hanssen wouldn't accept her notice? a million and one questions were racing through her mind,
Her train of though was quickly dismissed as she realized that Bernie was standing in front of her,with their daughter in her arms, what are you thinking about sweetheart Bernie asked her, am I doing the right thing in handing in my notice,she asked.
It has always been my experience that if you are not happy doing your job,then leave and work somewhere where you will be appreciated,because it seems to me that all other surgeons took advantage of your good nature and I for one am not happy about it, leaving a qualified surgeon with 2junior surgeons who are still training.
Serena thanked Bernie for her advice and proceeded to make her a cup of coffee and warmed a bottle up for their daughter.
Bernie phoned her boss at the hospital and asked if she could change her day off, as she had a few issues to sort out at home regarding her wife and children,her boss immediately agreed to it,but she would be needed at the hospital on the following day, a s the hospital board had a proposition to put to Bernie .
Bernie and Serena sat in their living room watching Charlotte playing on the floor,with the building blocks that the boys normally played with,no matter how many dolls or girl's toys they bought for Charlotte she was more happier playing with boy toys.
Once all 3 children were awake Serena began to get the children their breakfasts,once they had been fed they got them dressed and then got them strapped into their car seats,Serena got into the passenger side of their car,Bernie got into the drivers side and started to make the 45 minute drive to Holby city hospital, when they arrived at the hospital Serena went In and asked to see Mr Hanssen straight away.
When she got up to his office she knocked on his door and waited until he called her in ,when he summoned her into his office ,she immediately handed in her notice.
He wanted to know what had bought this sudden change of heart,so she told him what was happening ,that she was always left with junior surgeons instead of qualified surgeons all operations that she had assisted on she was left to write up the reports, check the medication that they wouldneed following surgery and the aftercare packages that would need to be in place for when the patient was due to be discharged following surgery.
She also complained that on several occasions she was late in picking up her children from either nursery or the creche which upset her as not only was it unfair on her ,it was also unfair on her children.
Hanssen reluctantly accepted her letter of notice,but he always told her that he would always hold Serena in the highest esteem not only as a surgeon and brilliant doctor ,but also has a really good friend with those words in her ears she left his office,and left holby city hospital for the last time .

Chapter Text

Serena walked out of Holby city hospital,with tears in her eyes as she was upset at the way other medical professionals had taken her for granted.
Once she reached the car and got in the passenger side,Bernie wrapped her arm around her and gave her a reassuring hug and a long lingering kiss, and told her that everything would be ok.
Bernie started the car and they made their way home,once they had got back home Serena asked Bernie if she would phone her c.o about the meeting that Bernie had to attend the following day, once she got through to the brigadier, he explained that he would need to see not only Bernie but also Serena, as the proposition was for the 2 of them,.
Bernie told the brigadier that they would be bringing their children with them, as they could not get a babysitter to look after them. Don't worry about that he said as they would be able to stay in the hospital nursery,as they catered for children aged 6 weeks upto 4years of age.
Serena agreed to the children going into the nursery for the duration of the meeting,which hopefully would only last an hour, 2 at most, and the meeting was scheduled for 09.30am and it was to take place in the hospital board room along with the board members.
The children were sleeping soundly ,Serena made their evening meal,Bernie was wondering what this meeting was about.
When the children woke from the afternoon nap they had their evening meal,along with their mums, when tea time was finished both mums got all 3 children bathed and dressed and ready for bed,once they were settled Bernie phoned the brigadier and asked if he could let her know what the meeting was about.
He knew Bernie would not rest until she had an inkling as to what was happening, he told her that they were looking for 2 fully qualified surgeons to over see the new specialist trauma unit in kiev mdical hospital, and the board knew the 2surgeons they wanted,however the couple would be told more when they attended the meeting.

Chapter Text

Bernie was the first one to wake ,she looked at her clock and the time was 05.15am,so she carefully got out of bed as she did not want to disturb Serena.
She made her way downstairs and went in the kitchen and made herself a cup of coffee, the phone call she had last night with her boss still fresh in her mind,did the army medical unit want Bernie and Serena to go out to Kiev and run the new specialist trauma unit,? or was she dreaming,because when they last worked together as junior doctors a t Holby city hospital everyone commented on how well they worked together,Bernie knowing what Serena was thinking and and vice versa.
Suddenly the kitchen light went on,Bernie was startled to see Serena standing in the doorway, penny for your thoughts she asked. Did I disturb you sweetheart Bernie asked her, no like you I was awake already but I looked in in our babies ,who are sleeping soundly, Bernie went and got Serena a hot drink,and she told her what she had been thinking.
Would you come out to Kiev with me if you were asked Bernie asked Serena, well if they were to ask me than we would have to talk about it obviously and then there would be the childcare to think about, and our working patterns, Serena then told her not to count her chickens because it may not be the case of Serena going out there and working alongside Bernie as a doctor or surgeon,it might just be general enquiries about us working together,and how well we work.
Bernie told Serena that she would be more than happy to work alongside no matter what capacity as no one could deny their undeniable chemistry when they worked together as they knew what each other was thinking.
Serena went and sat on Bernie's lap and wrapped her arms arond Bernie's strong arms and started to give her the most long and lingering kiss as well as rolling her nipples ,Bernie responded by undressing Serena and they went back upstairs to finish what they had started, only to be disturbed by the sound of Cameron waking up ,wanting his mummies,Serena looked up at Bernie and told her that they would finish their morning cuddle later in the day.
They got all 3 children downstairs and fed them, bathed them and got them ready for their day out with their mums,Serena went and showered and got dressed ready for the meeting, Bernie waited for her to come downstairs,then she went and showered got dressed and at 08.30 they got the children in their car seats Serena got in the passenger side and Bernie got in the drivers side , then they made their way to Holby city military hospital, they were met by a couple of board members,who took them to the nursery,where the children would be until the meeting finished Serena gave th e senior nursery nurse the childrens changing bag which had clean clothes, some nappies and some bottles of milk or juice,should the children want tem.
Once they knew the children were settled, they made their way to the board room,for their meeting with senior medical officers as well as senior board members,,
Bernie and Serena were both handed a brochure of the new specialist trauma unit hat was being set up at Kiev military hospital,what was said next came as a shock to both women........

Chapter Text

Sir Peter Jackman, he was the most senior board member,firstly he thanked everyone for attending the meeting,he handed out the brochures to all other members.
Serena started to look through the brochure and commented that Bernie would be in her element as it was a specialist trauma unit which Bernie would thrive in as it was her domain.
Lieutenant Colonel Morrison started to say that the unit would be ready in about 8weeks time,so the couple they had in mind to run the unit would have to go out to Kiev and oversee the delivery of the equipment and all medical apparatus as well as dressings etc etc.
How do you 2 feel about running the new unit for the next 12 months, Sir Peter asked them, Serena was stunned at his request,why do you want Bernie and myself to run the unit,?
To be honet with you Serena we know Bernie will be in her element, and from what we have been told you are the best vascular surgeon in England,and we will always need honest decent hardworking surgeons such as you and Bernie that is why we want you 2 to go and run the unit and get it ready for the opening which will be in July/August and we need you to be in place.
Serena was told that although it is a military hospital she would not be on army strength,however she would be on the army's payroll as she would be contracted to work for the army for the next 12 months.
Bernie asked would they be joint leaders or not, Sir Peter explaied that Bernie would be the lead trauma doctor and that Serena would be her deputy leader.

The working hours were shown to them if Serena wanted to work part time her working rota would be Monday,Wednesday Thursday 08.30 until 13.00 and once a month she ,like Bernie would be expected to take a long weekend,finishing at 13.00 on the Thursday and return to work at 08.30am the following Monday.
Bernie's working rota would be 08.30 until 17.00pm Monday to Friday ,and like Serena she would be expected to take a long weekend once a month.
Serena then asked about the childcare arrangements for the children, both ladies were told that they would be able to go to the hospital nursery like the other staff's children.
Serena then went on to tell the board about how surgeons who she worked with at Holby city hospital, took advantage of her kind nature by expecting her to write the reports,sort out the medication each patient needed as well as the aftercare packages needed.
We understand that you had a bad experience in your last job,we can tell you now that anything like that will not happen in Kiev as Bernie will be in total charge and if you have any issues then she will address them on your behalf.
Sir Peter started to bring the meeting to a close,so we would like you both to go home discuss what has been said and we would like a decision within the next 7days if that is enough time for you to decide wheather you both would like to run the new unit for us.
With those words still fresh in their minds, they went to the nursery got the children and made their way back home , both eager to talk about whether or not to take the positions

Chapter Text

Once the meeting was finished, Bernie and Serena went and collected their children from the hospital nursery and made their way to their car, once the children had been strapped in to their car seats and Serena was safely in the passenger seat, and Bernie in the drivers side,they made their way back home.
When they arrived home both women started to make everyone some lunch. When everyone had eaten their lunch bothmums went and put the children dowsn for their afternoon sleep,as all 3 children were tired after their day out and making friends at the nursery at the hospital.
With the children upstairs sleeping, Serena began to talk about the offer that had been put before them,about working together in Kiev,but Bernie had other ideas,she began to undo the buttons on Serena's blouse,and remove her camisole top, with those items removed she put her hands inside Serena's bra and began to massage Serena's ample bosom which Bernie always enjoyed doing.
Serena repaid the favour, by taking Bernie's trademark long white shirt off her and throwing it on the floor, before long bothwomen were naked and writhing around on their living room floor kissing each other with a passion.
Bernie picked Serena up and took her to their bedroom, and proceeded to make love to her wife, Serena was moaning with pleasure as her wife's strong fingers pumped in and out of her wife's deliciously sweet dripping pussy,she arched her back as she came time after time, Serena begged her to go and get the double headed dildo to "finish her off" as she was close to achieving her release,beside that Serena had told Bernie that she was desperate for a bloody good fuck, which Bernie duly obliged .
Once Bernie had given her wife a seeing to.Serena then went into their en suite and placed the strap on, on and went back into their bedroom, where she started to fuck her wife with such a passion that Bernie had never experienced anything like this from her wife before,like Serena she arched her back as her release took hold.
Serena was lying on her back, still wearing the strap on, Bernie got her self positioned so she could ride the large dildo that was standing tall and proud,she started to roll her hips, getting faster and faster, Serena holding the headboard Bernie watching with glee as her wife's large tits bounced around,while Bernie carried on riding the dildo until she came again and again.
Once Bernie had finished she started to deep throat the large cock that was covered in her cum.
Serena begged Bernie to put the strap on ,on so she could fuck it as well to which Bernie duly obliged, like Bernie once she had cum repeatedly she started to deep throat the dildo.
With both women completely satisfied after another one of their marathon sex sessions they both fell asleep, only to be disturbed by the phone ringing.

Chapter Text

Serena answered the phone and turned to Bernie and told her that her c.o wanted to speak with Bernie urgently.
Bernie took the phone from Serena and asked what the problem was, Bernie was speaking with her c.o. who told her that the fighting in iraq had worsened in the last 24hours and that she was needed to go out there,not only as a frontline medic, but also as a frontline soldier.
She asked where they were departing from. R.A.F Northolt was the reply,she turned to see Serena with tears falling down her face,she replaced the receiver back down on the phone.
Bernie wrapped her arms around Serena and told her that she had to go out to iraq due to the intense fighting ,and that she would be a frontline medic as well as a frontline soldier, which scared the life out of Serena.
Both women got out of bed ,Bernie made her way to the shower,Serena went downstairs and made them both a hot drink, once Bernie had showered she started to put her army fatigues on unaware that Serena was watching her,when she was dressed she turned to see Serena watching her.
There were tears spilled between both women,one not wanting her wife to go out to one of the world's worst trouble spots,the other not wanting to go and leave her beloved wife and young children for any length of time.
Bernie took Serena's hand and they sat on the end of their bed, she held her hands and told her that she would be back after 6 months as that was how long she had been told she would be out in iraq for, 3 months working in a field hospital,3 months out on the frontline.
The thought of her wife fighting out on the frontline scared Serena witless,because she knew that the iraqi's did care much for female soldiers, least of all senior officers,
Bernie told Serena that she had to be at R.A.F Northolt for 22.30.pm as their flight was due to take off at 00.30am, so at least they would have a couple of hours before the flight left for iraq.
Both women kissed each other with such a passion that their lingering kiss was disturbed by Edward wanting his mummies, Bernie went to his room and picked him up and began to become emotional ,that she would not be at home for his first birthday, also she wouldn't be home for the twins 2nd birthday.
Serena made everyone some tea ,once everyone had finishe, both women changed all 3 children got them dressed Bernie put all her kit in the back of their car , she helped Serena to get them strapped in their ,car seats , Bernie got into the passenger side and Serena got in the driver's side,she tarted the car and made their way to R.A.F Northolt.
When they arrived at the air base Bernie went and reported for duty,she saw all the higher ranking from her Brigade,
Everyone was talking about how badly the trouble had escalated so soon in iraq, but Bernie was more intrested in talking to her wife, until she was summoned to talk to her c.o. about her role out in iraq.She was to be in control of all aspects of the impending tour of duty.
Once again Edward Campbell would be in charge of all medical departments,including the field hospitals.

Chapter Text

Bernie was talking to Serena when they were interrupted by the head of Holby City Military Hospital,who asked if they had reached a decision about going out to Kiev for 12months ,to run the new specialist truma unit.
Serena explained that they had decided that they would be going to Kiev to run the new unit,but with Bernie going on tour of duty to Iraq, where did they stand regarding the secondment to Kiev?.
Sir Peter Jackman explained that they could still go once Bernie had completed her latest tour of duty ,they both asked that if they agreed to go when Bernie's tour was over when would they be expected to fly out.
You would be expected to fly out the end of January ,take up your positions as joint leads the first week in february and the secondment would end in the begining of December.
They both agreed that is what they would do ,Sir Peter walked away from both women they were talking about their children, when Bernie's commanding officer went and told Bernie that she needed to be on board within the next 15 minutes as they wanted all personnel on board, as take off was fast approaching.
Serena started to cry as their few final minutes ebbed away, Bernie wrapped her arms around Serena and gave her a long lingering kiss,and toldher that she would be back soon.
Bernie bent down and gave their children a kiss good bye , she got back up gave Serena another long kiss, she then picked up her jacket and rucksack and began to walk towards the departure area,she stopped looked around and saw Serena crying her children waving.
Bernie waved back and went through the departure area unknown to Serena she too was crying uncontrollably at the thought of leaving her beautiful wife and family for nearly 8months.

Chapter Text

Serena walked out of the air base still crying, she got the children in to their car seats, she made her way to the driver's side got In and made the 1hour drive back home.
When they returned home Serena got all 3 children settled in to their cots, she went downstairs and wiped the tears from her eyes " come on Serena she will be back soon enough "she kept telling herself as she started to drink a glass of shiraz , she made sure that her phone had plenty of charge on her phone for when Bernie phoned her.
Eventually she fell asleep on the large settee, only to be woken some 5 hours later when Cameron woke up and needed his mummy, she went and picked him up out of his cot and took him downstairs and let him play on the floor whilst she went and bought his brother and sister downstairs.
With all 3 playing with building blocks ,she went and made them their breakfast,Cameron and Charlotte were able to feed themselves, Serena had Edward in his high chair feeding him, once the eldest two had finished Serena looked at them,as they both had more over their nightware than what they had eaten, she smiled at the sight of her children in a mess.
Once breakfast was finished, she got all 3 changed and dressed, all the breakfast dishes were put in the dishwasher, Serena made herself a cup of tea, and went into the living room and checked her phone to see if Bernie had phoned or sent a text message,but there was nothing.
Serena knew that it might be a day or two before she would be able to speak to Bernie as she had to organise the troops and get her own quarters ready, and sort out who would be doing morning patrols, afternoon patrols, and night time patrols, as the patrols lasted upto 8hrs at a time and Bernie certainly was not worried about including herself in doing patrols whatever the time.
Serena was helping the children to build a house with their blocks, when suddenly her phone started to ring. She reached over to answer the call, "hello gorgeous"is what she was greeted with, at last nearly 24hrs after Bernie had left for Iraq Bernie was at last able to speak to Serena, she started to become emotional ,Bernie asked what the matter was? Nothing I am just being silly, it is just a relief that you have landed safely and I know that you are ok ,Bernie told her that it was not silly it just proves that you are a concerned partner and I for one think that is sweet of you.
Bernie asked how the children were,they are trying to build us a new house with their building blocks as both women laughed at that thought ,Bernie told her that just as soon as we have a decent Internet connection I will be able to Skype you at least once a week, but I should be able to phone or text you most days providing I am not on a morning or afternoon patrol, Serena asked if everything had been set up at their base , more or less was Bernie's reply.
Once they had finished on the phone, Serena started to feel a little easier ,knowing that Bernie was doing ok and that she would be able to keep in touch by phone or skype.
Serena was a very happy woman after speaking to her wife,knowing that she was able to skype maybe once or twice a week and phone her as often as possible, that made Serena smile,as she went and helped the children finish building their new house.

Chapter Text

The first few weeks of Bernie's tour went by so quickly, Bernie kept to her promise of texting ,or phoning and skyping Serena as often as she could, depending on what patrol she was out on.
Serena wrote to Bernie every other week, just as Bernie wrote to Serena as often as she could,telling her about conditions out in Iraq and how the troops were coping and how Bernie was coping with being in charge at the camp where they were based.
Serena 's letters were usually about how the children were growing and new milestones what they had achieved.
Each night Serena listened intensely to the news listening for news filtering out from Iraq, she knew that Iraq was one of the worst trouble spots for the fighting between different factions trying to gain control most of the cities., Serena knew that when Bernie went out on her patrol she would always have her most trusted foot soldiers with her, as they looked out for everyone else in their camp.
One of the objectives they had been given was to try and rescue 10American soldier that had been abducted some 8 months earlier.
Bernie had been tasked with trying to launch a rescue party and free the American soldier's, she had been given aerial photographs of where they were being held, as well as having detailed positions of various vantage points for storming the building and more importantly where the soldiers were being held and how many captors were guarding them and what weapons they had.
3 months after Bernie had gone out to Iraq, she skyped Serena and she told Serena that she would be joing a rescue party to try and free the American soldier's,
Serena began to get upset as she knew that this would be a serious mission ,not only for Bernie but all the other soldiers involved,as the Iraq military did not care much for British or American soldier's.
Bernie tried to reassure Serena that they would be ok as they had plannedthe raid with precision timing and where the soldiers were being held and the quickest route out of the badly bombed building.
Bernie told Serena that she would text her or skype her just as soon as she could, Serena was crying not knowing if she would ever see Bernie again,because if the resue mission went wrong ,who knows what might happen.
Less than a week after Bernie had skyped Serena, on the news channel there was a breaking news story.
We are getting reports from Iraq that the 10 American soldiers who have been held by the Iraqi army have been rescued by the British army the rescue mission party was lead by Major Bernie Wolfe who lead the rescue party and freed the soldiers from their captors and led them to a place of safety, that is all we have for now more on this breaking news story as we get more information.
Serena sat on the settee,waiting for news a out Bernie and the rescue party, wanting to know if the were all ok, wanting to know if any one was injured, just wanting to know the tiniest bit of information.
The next 24 hours were the longest of Serena's life. looking at her mobile phone ,waiting for a text, checking her computer for an e-mail anything from Bernie just to let Serena know that she was ok.
Serena was busy playing with the children helping them make new buildings with their lego and building blocks, when her phone started to ring, she looked at her phone, she knew it was Bernie, she pressed the answer button and ,heard her beloved Bernie with her trade mark greeting to Serena"hello gorgeous" with that Serena started crying at hearing Bernie's voice.

Chapter Text

Bernie asked Serena why she was crying, "I just so glad to hear your voice again my love " was Serena's reply to which Bernie replied same here just so happy to speak to you and hear you voice.
Serena asked how things were going out in Iraq "fine "was Bernie's short reply Serena knew that everything was not ok just by Bernie's tone as they were talking, Bernie please tell me what is wrong I know something is bothering you Serena pleaded with her wife to talk to her.
I wish I was back home with you and the children was Bernie's tearfull reply, Bernie darling you will be back home before long and then we can all have a long catch up with each other the children look forward to you skyping me when they get to see you it makes their day when they see you.
It breaks my heart knowing that I am thousands of miles away from the most important people in my life, I cannot wait to be back home for new year's eve.
Once they had got the emotional part of their conversation out of the way, Bernie told Serena to get a pen and paper as she had some important dates for Serena to write down.
Serena asked Bernie for the dates.
January 10th medal ceremony at Buckingham palace.
January 17th the R.A.M.C. was being given the freedom of Holby city, due to services in the medical field under hostile conditions.
January 26th that was the date when Bernie and Serena and their children flew out to Kiev.
October 26th was the date when they would be returning to England.
Serena asked Bernie why they were only going to be in Kiev for 10 months instead of the 12 months they were told, Bernie replied " because I have asked for extended leave so they have given me 3 months leave".
Serena asked why she had been given 3 months leave to which Bernie replied "I am owed so much leave it is unreal, and besides how often do I ask for extended leave" Serena could not believe her luck at having her wife at home with her for 3 months.
Bernie asked Serena if she wanted to hear some good news "of course I do sweetheart " was Serena's reply ,well Bernie began to tell her that she would no longer be a front line soldier, as she had been put in command of the large field military hospital and she would be expected to work 2 days each week at the civilian hospital, as well.
Serena screamed with joy. knowing that her wife would no longer be in danger out on the front line, but she would be doing what she does best making people well again.
Bernie then remembered that she had forgotten to ask Serena if she wanted to take the children to the christmas party they had arranged at the barracks it would be taking place on the 19th of December, if Serena wanted to take them to the party then she would need to tell Bernie so she could e-mail the barracks to inform them that her wife and children would be attending..
Serena told Bernie that all 4 would be attending the party, with that Bernie told Serena that she had to ring off as the siren had just gone off, meaning that it was all available soldiers were need asap.

Chapter Text

More than 36 hours had passed since Serena last spoke to Bernie, Serena was looking at her mobile phone every 5 minutes just to see if she had missed a call or a text or message from Bernie but to no avail, there was nothing.
Serena kept her eyes on the news channel for any snippet of news that was filtering out of Iraq but there was nothing ,but at the same time Serena understood that if anything had happened Bernie would have to attend to any injured soldiers or civilians or write up any reports as the way any fighting had become intensified.

Bernie woke up in a hospital bed, a cannula in her hand connected to a saline drip, not knowing what had happened or why she was even in a hospital bed.
She called over the senior nurse and asked why she was in hospital, your appendix was on the verge of bursting was the nurses reply,so you were bought here where Major Campbell operated on you and you have been here ever since.
Bernie asked immediately for a telephone,the senior nurse went and fetched the payphone for Bernie and she pulled the curtains around her bed and told her to take her time in phoning home.
Bernie worked out the time difference and it was 08.15am in the morning in England, 23.15pm in Iraq.
She started to dial Serena's mobile phone number,once it started to ring Serena answered , Bernie told her to remain calm,Serena wanted to know just what was going on, what had happened, darling, I am in hospital but please don't worry I have not been injured ,but my appendix was on the verge of bursting and I must have collapsed because I cannot recall anything.
Serena began to cry knowing that her wife was safe, but incapacitated due to something as simple as appendicitis.
Within 24 hours she was on a military airplane heading home.
Bernie chuckled to herself that she would be at home for her wedding anniversary to Serena, the twins 2nd birthday and Edward's 1st birthday.
24hours after Bernie and Serena had spoken , Serena had a phone call to say Bernie would be landing at R.A.F Norhholt,and Serena could be at the base to Bernie and take her home for recovery.

Chapter Text

The military airplane landed at R.A.F Northolt at 13.00hrs, Serena was waiting in the officers mess just witing for news about when Bernie's flight would be landing.
While she was talking with some of the senior officers a junior soldier enters the messroom to inform everyone that the flight had landed, and that everyone had been taken off the plane and they were all heading for the medical facility to be checked over and either taken to Holby city military hospital or be discharged and go home to recouperate from whatever surgery or whatever illness had be fallen the service personell.
Bernie was discharged from the medical facility and told that she was to return to work in 8 weeks time ,which would be ample time to help her recover from the surgery that she had undergone whilst out on active service in Iraq.
Serena was shocked when Bernie was wheeled into the officers mess ,Bernie's face was like thunder having someone wheel her around in a wheelchair, but that is army procedure .
Serena went to her and helped her wife to get up and out of the wheelchair and sit in one of the high backed chairs in the officers mess,the couple made conversation with some of the other soldiers and officers as well as their partners,whilst they were talking the doctor we t in to speak to the army personnel who had been bought back home,due to illness or surgery or injuries sustained whilst in battle.
The doctor went to the soldiers and handed over what medication each soldier or officer required.When the doctor finally got around to seeing Bernie hegave hersome pain killers and told her to "take things easy for the next 8 weeks.
Serena started to smile at the thought of Bernie being told to do as she was told ,otherwise her recovery would take much longer than was expected.
Once the doctor had finished talking to both ladies Serena went and fetched the children from the nursery, when Serena walked back into the officers mess,Bernie began to get emotional ,seeing her children for the first time in a while.
Serena got everyone into the car ,Bernie was in the passenger side ,Serena was driving she started to car and they made the long drive back home.
Once they were back home Serena got the children out first and then went to help Bernie get out of their car,but she had managed to get out herself, Serena got her inside their home and made her rest after all Serena was a doctor and she knew that Bernie would not be the best patient at all,because Bernie was used to treating others and giving them instructions as to help their recovery.
Once the children were tucked up in the beds Serena cuddled up to Bernie and asked what had happened ,but Bernie just remembered that she had heard the siren going off,she went and got ready to go out with the other soldier's, she then had a sharp stabbing pain in her right hand side and the next thing she knew ,she woke up in hospital after having surgery to remove her appendix.
Bernie was upset that she could not finish her tour of duty, but on the other hand she would be home for her wedding anniversary the twins 2nd birthday and Edwards first birthday.

Chapter Text

When news of Bernie's operation reached the staff at Holby city Military hospital, her most trusted soldiers went and saw how their boss was coping with being told to relax,which for Bernie was something unheard of as she had always been active .
When they arrived at Serena and Bernie's house they were surprised to see her stretched out on the large settee she shared with Serena and a woollen blanket over her legs with Serena telling her to rest,which Bernie hated., they had bought her a bottle of whiskey and a box of her favourite chocolates.
The soldiers made a fuss of all3 children offering to take them to the barracks nursery if they wanted a break while Bernie recouperated after her surgery.
Both of the ladies thanked the soldiers for their kind offer but they knew that the children would not settle unless Bernie or Serena were with them at the nursery.
A few days later ,Fletch and Raf turned up at the ladies house and wanted to take the children out for the day as it was Eve's birthday shortly and Fletch had arranged a small party at his house and he had also planned a pool party.
Fletch told them that Morven and Jasmine would be present and he knew that Marcus enjoyed being with Cameron and Edward as they all enjoyed painting and just generally making a mess wherever they were.
Serena asked what time the party started 12.00 until 6.00pm Fletch informed her, she then asked what Bernie thought ,she thought it would be good for them to go and play with some other children and enjoy themselves.
Serena and Bernie both agreed to the children going to the party,which was taking place on the Saturday,and it would give the ladies time to get everything ready for the children's day out with Fletch's children and Marcus.
On the Friday evening Serena got all the children's clothes ready ,she also put 2change of clothes for all 3 children,aswell as their dri ks and whatever else they would be needing, .
They had bought Eve minnions dvd and a few other little things for her, later on the Friday evening Morven and Jasmine turned up with little Marcus, the moment he saw Cameron they began playing with the building blocks that were scattered around the floor ,where the children were playing.
All 4 ladies were making small talk about their children,and how they were doing whilst at nursery school,all agreed they were doing well .
Jasmine also announced that she was expecting her 2nd child the baby was due the beginning of december.
Once everyone had gone back home and Serena had put their 3 children to sleep, Serena and Bernie made their way upstairs to their bedroom.
When they were lying entwined in each other's bodies Bernie promised Serena that she would take her out shopping on Saturday once the children had been picked up by Fletch, Serena told her that there was no need to go shopping on Saturday as they did not need anythin.
Bernie turned to Serena and gave her a very filthy look and she also had a very dirty glint in her eyes, Serena knew then what kind of shopping Bernie meant.

Chapter Text

Bernie woke at about 4.20am and she rested her head on her hand and starred at Serena's back and shoulders and began to pepper them with warm sweet tender kisses.
Some is feeling rather amorous this morning aren't we Major Serena said, to which Bernie replied "well it has been nearly 3months since we were able to be intimate with each other "was Bernie's answer, I know I am just teasing you sweetheart Serena replied.
Within 5minutes Bernie was lying on top of her wife,kissing her as though her life depended on it,massaging her ample bosom at the same time.
Serena begged Bernie to go and get the double headed dildo so they could fuck each other, for the first time in 3 months.
Bernie went to their en suite and got the double headed dildo ,she gently inserted one end of the dildo into her pussy, she then guided the dildo into Serena's glorious dripping pussy and began gently building up a slow rhythm as she pushed the dildo in and out of Serena's pussy.
Gradually the rhythm started to gather pace as Bernie started going faster as per her wife's request to fuck her harder.
Bernie knew that Serena was close to coming so she slowed down the pace that she was going at.
Serena dug her nails into Bernie's shoulders as she was so close to coming ,her arms and legs were flailing all over the place,and got she was moaning in ecstasy as Bernie brought her closer and closer to achieving her release, after all she had not been intimate with Bernie for 3 months so she was surprised that she had lasted as long as she had without coming sooner.
Once Serena had achieved her release,she new that Bernie had come as well as she was breathing rather fast and her forehead was dripping with perspiration as well as her chest.
The perspiration was also running down Serena's face and all over her ample bosom,she pulled Bernie's face down to her face where they kissed with a passion.With one sharp twist Serena soon had Bernie on her back , and Serena began to give Bernie hot sweet passionate kisses all over her shoulders and her perfectly formed ,pert breasts whilst inserting 4fingers in to her wife's saturated pussy Bernie begged her to go harder and faster with her fingers, Once Serena knew Bernie had cum she withdrew her fingers a nd began to lick her pussy like her life depended on it.
When Serena had finished licking Bernie's pussy Bernie had Serena on her back and began to thrust her tongue in and out of her wife's deliciously sweet tasting pussy.
When the ladies had finished their marathon sex session they lay in each other's arms thinking about what new toys and gadgets they would be buying later that day.

Chapter Text

Serena was wrapped up in her wife's strong arms,her head resting on her shoulder, Bernie was gazing lovingly at how beautiful her wife really was.

Jasmine explained that Fletch had asked them to pick the children up as his car was in the garage and that they would bring them back at about 18.30 Bernie asked if they needed any help with putting the car seats in to their car.
Once Bernie had put the seats into their car,they got the children settled and Jasmine and Morven drove off .
Serena was getting ready to go out shopping with Bernie when Bernie walked up behind her,wrapped her arms around her waist and began to kiss her neck and shoulders, Serena turned her head around and began to kiss Bernie as though her life depended on it,, slowly they parted and Serena asked if Bernie was ready for their "shopping trip" Bernie nodded and they both got their coats Serena got her handbag Bernie got the car keys and made her way to the driver's side of their car, Serena made her way to the passenger side once they were both in Bernie began to drive to Holby city centre, where she would take her wife to the largest adult shop in Holby .
When they arrived at their destination Serena was completely dumbstruck at what they had got out on display.
Bernie took her hand and led her upstairs ,where was the largest display of vibrators and large dildo's, Serena was like a child in a sweet shop looking, touching and feeling all that she could, Bernie put her arm around her waist and asked if she had seen anything she liked.
She picked out several large vibrators and some large dildo's that they would use later that day.
Bernie made her way over to a section that had saucey outfits, she picked out a mother christmas and a naughty nurse outfit, Serena made her way over to where Bernie was and looked at what Bernie had picked out .
Serena looked at the outfits Bernie was holding "which one will I be wearing later this afternoon" Serena asked ,Bernie replied "that is up to you ".
Bernie also picked up 2pairs of black stockings to go with the outfits and a black basque with red lace trim around the bust .Serena looked at what Bernie had got in her hand,cheekily Serena told Bernie that she would need a pair of black high heel shoes to go with the outfits.
They took the outfits and the vibrators and dildo's to the assistant who scanned all their purchases when they had been scanned Bernie handed hercredit card over and paid for the goods.
Bernie then took Serena in to the nearest shoe shop to buy some black high heels, with those purchased they made their way back to their car and made the hour long drive back home.
Once they got back home they phoned Fletch to see if the children were ok, Fletch told Serena that they were enjoying themselves and having fun with the other children.

When Bernie had finished she removed the harness from around Serena's waist she slowly inserted 3fingers in to her wife's dripping wet pussy she could feel Serena inserting 3 fingers in to her wet pussy Bernie asked her to go faster to which Serena duly obliged and Bernie also started to pump her fingers faster in Serena's pussy, when they had both cum they licked each other's juices from their hands.

Morven and Jasmine bought the children back home, on the dot at 18.30hrs, all three children wanted to show their mummies what they had been doing at the party,Cameron and Charlotte had been painting,Edward had been playing with other small children.
Marcus was playing along with Cameron and Charlotte on the living room floor, Serena asked if they had behaved themselves whilst at Eve's party.
Morven told them that all 4 children hd enjoyed themselves immensely with ,painting, and playing along with other children,building hospitals,playing with cars etc.
Serena asked if Jasmine was happy to be expecting their second child,Morven said that again she was suffering from chronic morning sickness as she did when she was pregnant with Marcus.
At about 19.15pm Morven and her small family left Serena's and Bernie's house and bid them all good night and they would see them again very soon.
Bernie and Serena got their children ready for bed as all 3 were so exhausted after having a "big day out" none of the children needed much help in falling to sleep as they were tried from playing with other children.
Once they were settled Bernie went upstairs to take a long hot shower, when she had finished she put on a very sexy ,lacy underwear set, that Serena had bought her.
Once Serena had checked on the children she too went and had a long hot shower, when she got out and dried herself down she was determined to give Bernie one hell of a good night, that neither woman would forget in a hurry .
Serena went to enter their bedroom and saw that Bernie had bought them both a glass of shiraz upstairs.
Bernie was in a world of her own when Serena entered their bedroom,Serena called out to Bernie, when she saw what Serena was wearing she was completely in awe of the vision that was standing in the doorway.
Do you like what you see Major, Serena asked, Bernie's eyes were on stalks with what Serena was wearing.

Serena stands in the doorway, smiling at how Bernie is attempting tomake sure all of their children eat all their breakfasts, Serena walks up to Bernie and asks if she needs help, well considering that Edward had more cereal down the front of his bib,than he had actually been fed, Serena decided that Bernie should take a breather and have a shower,considering she had cereal all over her .

Chapter Text

Bernie ask Mr. Medcalfe when did her parents pass away, when he tells her about their passing and where their final resting place is.
Once all the formalities have been discussed, he then goes on to tell Bernie that she is the sole beneficiary as her parents cut out her brother,owing to the fact that he dropped out of law school,and started to mix with the wrong crowd,and also the fact that they were always bailing him out of trouble.
Mr.Medcalfe also explains that money has been put aside for any children that Bernie and her wife have, which is to be used for their education.
Bernie tells him that she thought that they had disowned her because of her sexuality,he acknowledges that fact, but he informs Bernie that it didn't matter whether she was with a woman,all that mattered was that Bernie and her wife were happy and that they loved each other which was more important to her parents.
He then goes on in detail reading the contents of both wills,both Bernie and Serena are completely taken aback with just what she has been left.
Once he has finished reading both wills ,he asks both women to remain seated as they still have something else to take away with them .
He picks up a very large box,opens it up and produces a large photo album and a large scrap book.
Mr.Medcalfe advises Bernie to look through the scrap book first, when she open the book,she is shocked to discover that her father has followed her military career from the start until the last tour of duty she completed.
Pictures of her receiving her medals from members of the royal family to her promotion ceremony,when she was promoted to Major.
Once they had looked through the scrap book ,he then reads out a letter that her father had written for her,about how proud he was and that out of everyone in her family, (Bernie was the only female in her family to join the army)she attained a rank higher than captain, which is the rank her father had reached.
When everything ws completed she gave Serena the car keys and they got everyone in the car, Bernie putting the large box in the back of their car,children safely in their car seats ,she asked Serena to drive them back home.

Once Bernie and Serena had put the children in their car seats, Bernie gets in the passenger side and Serena gets in the driver's side, Bernie asks Serena not to drive straight home,but to finda " child friendly" restaurant where they could have their lunch.
Serena finds a restaurant where children are accepted, the family make their way over to the family section, ,Serena orders some lunch for the children, and a sandwiches for herself and Bernie, she also orders a large whiskey for Bernie,who is staring in to space.
When all the food arrives,the eldest 2 children start to feed themselves,while Serena helps Edward to feed himself whilst trying to eat her own lunch.
Once Serena and the children had finished, Serena tapped Bernie's hand to try to get her "back to reality" as she was still in a state of shock after what had happened jut a few hours in the solicitors office.
Once the bill had been paid,and the table had been cleared, both women got the children back into their car seats,Bernie got into the passenger side and Serena got in the driver's side .
When they arrived back home,all 3 children fell asleep, Serena held Bernie's hand and asked her what was wrong.
"Darling I cannot believe what my parent's have left me, " was Bernie's reply, Serena sat as Bernie told her how her parents did not approve of ' same sex couples' and how they mocked her for wanting to join the army, how they laughed ,when she announced that she wanted to study medicine.
Serena sat and listened to Bernie how everyone was against her wanting to fulfill her dreams of becoming an army medic, but when her brother announced he wanted to study law ,everyone bent over backwards to accommodate his wishes although he failed the law school entrance exam twice, Bernie however passed the Cambridge university medical school exam first time.
Bernie turned to Serena with tears in her eyes,and thanked Serena for loving her, being the most perfect of mothers to their 3 children, and Bernie lifted Serena's face and kissed her and thanked her for listening, Serena took Bernie by the hand and took her upstairs to their bedroom, where they made love for several hours.

Chapter Text

"Just where did find out how to make love for hours without being out of breath" Bernie asked Serena, " I had a good teacher in you darling" was Serena's reply, as Bernie snuggled up to her wife,Serena had her arm wrapped around Bernie's shoulders.
Bernie turned to Serena and begins to pepper her collarbone with the most tender of warm,tender kisses .
Once Bernie stops kissing Serena, she throws the duvet off them and makes her way to their shower, they both enjoy a hot shower.
Once showered and dressed, they make their way to the children's rooms only to see that all 3 children are still sleeping soundly.
They then make their way to the kitchen,where Serena turns the coffee maker on,while Bernie starts to make them some tea, comprising of salads and a selection of cheeses and cold meats.
Bernie turns to Serena and asks if she and the children would like to go and see the house that her parents had left to her , Serena agrees and Bernie then phones the solicitor to make the arrangements to collect the keys to the property, once the details have been discussed Bernie tells Serena that she has to collect the keys Friday afternoon.
When the children wake up both women go and bring them downstairs and Serena makes them an evening meal.
The next few days pass without incident,until the Colonel from Bernie's barracks phones her and explains that he needs to speak to her immediately.
Bernie gets dressed in her full army uniform and drives herself over to Holby city Army Barracks, where Colonel Jameson is waiting for her.
He escorts Bernie into his own office, he then invites her to take a seat,once she is seated he begins to explain that she will be going out on tour of duty to Syria in the next 4 weeks, so she needs to start getting all her uniforms and personal effects together as they need to be sent on, before her arrival,which should be the beginning of July and last until the new year.
While she is out on tour in Syria this time she will not only be a frontline soldier and a frontline medical officer,but she will be in charge of all medical matters, as Major Edward Campbell has since taken retirement.
Bernie then asks the Colonel if he still wants to speak to both her and Serena on Friday,he explains that what he wanted to discuss with them both will have to wait until Bernie returns from Syria.

Chapter Text

Bernie asked the Colonel when the next meeting would be, as she needed to be told of objectives, and who if any were they to target, and the date of the deployment ,as she wanted to make sure that Serena and the family would be ready for when she left for Syria.
The colonel informed Bernie that she would be told a little nearer the actual date and whatever anyone wanted or needed to know everything would be discussed at the next meeting, the Colonel informed Bernie that the weekend that Bernie had arranged for her and Serena to spend in paris to celebrate their 10th anniversary as a couple would still be ok, as he had arranged for Bernie's best foot soldiers to be "ill and in the infirmary".
Bernie left the Colonels office and made her way back to her car,she got in to the driver's side and began to get upset,at the thought of leaving Serena and her family for nearly 7 months.
When Bernie arrived back home Serena was waiting for her with Edward in her arms , Serena took one look at Bernie and instantly knew that something was amiss.
Bernie ushered Serena into the living room "when, where, and for how long" were Serena's next words.
Both women sat on their sofa, whilst the children played happily on the floor, Bernie replied July ,Syria, and all being well I should be back in the new year, in time for the medal ceremony and receiving the freedom of Holby city.
Serena ran into the kitchen, she was crying,knowing that in less than 10 weeks time she would be saying goodbye to her wife, who was going to one of the worst trouble spots in the world.
Bernie stood behind her and ,put her hands on her shoulders and tried to reassure her that she would be ok, and she would be able to skype her and text her just as soon as the internet was connected.
Bernie turned Serena around to face Bernie and she gave her the most passionate embrace and longest kiss that they have ever had.
Serena apologised for getting upset, but the thought of her wife going into battle, or being a frontline medic, Bernie replied that she would
be over the field hospitals as well as civilian hospitals as Edward Campbell has retired.
Bernie held Serena's hand and told her that she had nothing to worry about.
Later that evening after they had bathed all 3 children Bernie led Serena into their bedroom, where Bernie made hot passionate love to her wife over over again,until both women were completely wore out.

Morven was standing there, Jasmine had gone into labour 6 weeks early, Bernie ran to their house (which was in the same street where Bernie and her family ).
Morven and their son Marcus stayed with Serena and her family, whilst Bernie was with Jasmine, Patiently waiting for an ambulance, which was stuck behind a broken down bus.
Bernie phoned Serena and asked her to get to Morven and Jasmine's house and to get in contact with Fleur Fanshaw (the head of obs and gynecology at Holby city).

Fleur arrived about 15 minutes later,but she was too late................Bernie had safely delivered the couples second child a daughter they had decided to call Louisa Jayne Digby or Lou for short.

Once they all arrived at the hospital,Jasmine was taken up to the maternity unit, her baby daughter taken to the hospital nursery, although she was 6 weeks earky she still weighed a little over 5lb in weight.
Fleur Fanshaw examined Jasmine to make sure she was ok after what was a quick labour in comparison to when she was in labour with the couple's first child.

Serena suggested to Bernie that they have Marcus for the night, as Morven wanted to stay with Jasmine, Bernie was ok with them having Marcus overnight, as all 4 toddlers could play together.

Once everything had been arranged for Morven to stay with Jasmine overnight, Serena and Bernie got all the children and took them downstairs and got them all drinks,once the drinks were finished everyone made their way to Bernie and Serena's car.

Less than 1 hour later all children were safely tucked up in their cots both women gave everyone a goodnight kiss, with all children sleeping peacefully, Bernie asked Serena made their way down stairs to their living room.

Serena poured them both a drink, Bernie a large whiskey, and a large shuraz for Serena.
Bernie wrapped her arm around Serena and asked her " what is the matter sweetheart?".
Serena told her "nothing is wrong, why do you ask?".

Bernie replied " ever since we came back from the hospital you have been very quiet".

Serena began to let the tears flow from her eyes, Bernie pleaded with Serena to tell what the matter is.

Serena began by telling Bernie, I have never lied to you, so I won't start now.
Bernie was beginning to get worried, why would her wife make such a statement, whst has happened she thought to her self.

Serena composed herself and told her wife why she was so upset.

Bernie, I WANT ANOTHER BABY.
Bernie agreed to discuss it once Morven and Jasmine were back home in a couple of days time, and when the children were all asleep.

Serena thanked her wife, when suddenly their home phone began to ring out,....it was Morven..........she had only popped out of Jasmine's room for a couple of minutes, when she git back to where her girlfriend was, there was a group of doctors, and Fleur Fanshaw,
Morven began to panic, why were there so many doctor's outside Jasmine's room....................Fleur called her to one side and began to explain to her that................................they also had another daughter, who had been taken upto the special baby care unit as she weighed 3lb 15ounces and that they took her upto the baby care unit where she would be treated by specialist nurses and paediatric doctors.

Bernie asked if she wanted anything taken to the hospital,Morven told her no as she had a change of clothes in her hospital locker, so she would change later.

Bernie told Serena what had happened and both women looked at each other and kissed each other passionately, then Bernie dropped the biggest bombshell ever.

Let's make an appointment at the clinic..................as soon as possible.

Serena looked at Bernie,"are you sure about this Bernie?".
Bernie replied "yes I am so sure about it, so make the appointment for as soon as possible.

Serena's head was resting on Bernie's breasts, when she started to apologise to Bernie for wanting another child.
Bernie looked at her and said "what do you mean you are sorry for wanting another child". Serena then went on to explain that she didn't think Bernie would respond in the way she did " what do you mean Serena, Bernie asked".
Serena told her " I never thought that you would want us to make an appointment so soon, I thought you would want to have the medal ceremony, then your regiment receiving the freedom of Holby city, and finally off to Ukraine.
Bernie looked at Serena and asked her " tell me what you want my love, because I have always told you that whatever you and our children want I will try my utmost to make it happen".
Serena looked at Bernie with tears in her eyes and told her " I want another child, but I also want to further my medical career, I want to be tge best vascular surgeon I can be, but I also want to be the best mum to our children, does that make sense to you Bernie?.
Bernie looked at her and told her, " yes it makes perfect sense to me, but at the end of the day it is ultimately your decision, but whatever you decide to do, I will support you with out question.
Serena then had an idea, " what if I had another baby when the secondment to ukraine is completed, and I took a sabbatical until the twins and Edward are at school full time, and the youngest one is at nursery, then I could go back to work, just part time.
Bernie looked at Serena and asked her "is that what you realky want to do then sweetheart?.
Serena replied yes, that is what I want to do, Bernie then replied to her, then that is what we will do then ok.
Once the discussion was finished, Bernie looked at Serena and said " right let's pick up from where we finished, and they began another one of their lovemaking marathon sessions, only to be disturbed by Edward, who was a little grumpy, owing to the fact he was teething.
Once they had got Edward settled, both women got up out of bed and went downstairs into the kitchen, and Serena made them bith a hit drink and some toast.
All 4 children were awake at about 07.00 and both Bernie and Serena bathed them, and fed them their breakfasts and they had their drinks, Serena phoned the hospital to see how Jasmine and her new babies were doing,the nurse told Serena that mum and daughters were doing fine, and they could visit anytime after 10.00am .
While the children were watching some cartoons on t.v., there was a knock on the front door, Bernie went and answered it, and was surprised to see Morven standing in the doorway, Bernie, instantly called her in, and Marcus looked up and saw it was his momma, and he went to her, and she picked him up and gave him a kiss and she asked Serena," has he been a good boy for you".
Serena replied "he has been as good as gold, no trouble at all"..then Bernie asked about Jasmine and their twin daughters,.
Morven began to get upset, Serena went and put her arm around her and asked her "what is the matter is Jasmine ok, is it the babies", Morven looked at both Serena and Bernie, and told them both "everything is ok I am just being silly, but I am so happy, I have a beautiful girlfriend, and 3 healthy children, when Serena told her "we are hoping to have another baby next year, however, Bernie was having thoughts of her own, after all surley they could go to Ukraine another time...................couldn't they.

Chapter Text

The next few weeks Bernie had done nothing but think about calling of the secondment to the Ukraine so both Bernie and Serena could go and begin the process of going through I.v.f for another baby, after all whatever Serena and their children wanted Bernie would move heaven and earth to make sure they had what they wanted.
8 weeks before the secondment was due to begin Bernie was called into her c.o office, who was about to as he thought deliver some bad news to both Bernie and Serena, but in truth it was wonderful news for the couple.
Bernie's commanding officer began " unfortunately Bernie the secondment to the Ukraine has been scrapped until further notice, the government of Ukraine cannot guarantee yours or your families saftey, so they have put it on ice until further notice.
However we have come up with an idea, how would Serena like to work on a part time basis at the military hospital, obviously it will further her medical knowledge and if she wants we will also give her some time in theatre and she can observe and / or if she so wishes she may be able to assist from time to time, and we would like you to do a P.HD in trauma injuries, trauma surgery and rehabillitation from trauma surgery."
Bernie was gobsmacked to say the very least, but at least they would be able to get the I.V.F process started.
With their meeting finished Bernie's commanding officer told her " go home take a couple of days off think about the offer and if it is what both you and Serena want then we will get the ball rolling.
When Bernie arrived back home, Serena was shocked to see her wife back home so soon,Bernie sat and played with the couple's children until it was time for their afternoon nap, that was when Bernie would tell her wife about Ukraine be cancelled and what the army was offering in place of the secondment.
