Chapter Text

"Hi Mum." Cameron called out as he arrived home.
"Hi love. Hey gorgeous." Serena smiled as Bernie walked into the kitchen.
"Hello sexy." Bernie pulled Serena towards her and kissed her.
"Oh God there at it again. Come on Casper, let's go in the front room." Cameron groaned as he left the kitchen.
"You had a good day?"
"Yeah it was nice spending the day with Christine."
"So did you get a dress?"
"I did. Christine has taken it with her. Because I will be staying there the night before anyway."
"What for?"
"It's tradition. Are you still taking the boys tomorrow for your outfits?"
"We sure are."
"I thought with Zac at Josh's for tea we could have a takeaway tonight."
"Can we have pizza?" Cameron asked as he stood at the kitchen door.
"Yes, sure. Go and get changed first though and bring your uniform down so I can wash it."
OK Mum. "Cameron smiled as he ran upstairs.
"Why don't you go and put your feet up and i'll make us both a cuppa."
"Sounds good to me." Bernie smiled as she kissed Serena and went into the lounge.


"Here you go babe." Serena said as she came into the lounge and put the drinks on the coffee table. And sat down beside Bernie.
"Ta love."
"Bernie, I've been thinking."
"Oh God should I be worried?"
"No. No, it's nothing bad. I was just thinking that maybe we could invite some people over before the wedding."
"Like who?"
"Our parents. Christine and Paul. And whoever else you want to invite."
"Sounds great. When?"
"I know it's short notice but I was thinking about tomorrow night."
"You're right it is short notice."
"I just thought it would be nice for us all to be together. And I thought it would be good to get to know Paul a bit better before our wedding. I'll cook a nice roast."
"Can you do your beef in red wine?"
"Of course." Serena smiled and pecked Bernie on the lips.
"Great. I'll have this cuppa and ring my parents."
"Thank you. I'll go give mine a ring." Serena got up from the sofa and turned around at the door. "I love you."
"I love you too." Bernie smiled as Serena ran into the kitchen.


"Tea's here Mum." Cameron shouted from the bottom of the stairs.
"I'm coming love." Serena called back as she came out of the bedroom and went downstairs. "That smells nice." She said as she sat down at the kitchen table. "Did you ring your parents?"
"Yep. They are free. I said to be here for about 7. Is that OK?"
"Yeah of course."
"Mum and Dad are coming tomorrow."
"What about Christine?"
"Mum said she wasn't in. Said she had gone out. All dressed up."
"Where's she tripping off then?"
"Off out with old friends, mum said. Anyhoo I have sent her a text. And Paul because he isn't answering his phone either." Serena took a bite out of the pizza.
