"Hey how did it go?" Serena asked as Bernie came home.
"God knows. I told her to leave us alone. And that I would never leave you and our kids."
"What did she say to that?"
"She had the cheek to say that Harley isn't mine." Bernie said as she sat down on the sofa and put her head in her hands.
"You don't think that though. Do you?" Bernie shook her head. "Good." Serena said as she sat down beside Bernie. "Harley is your's and mine. You're his Momma. You're as much his Momma as you are Elaina's. He loves you so much."
"I love him too. I know it will never happen. But it just made me think that if we did ever split up. Then would you stop me from seeing Harley? Because if you did it would kill me."
"Bernie I wouldn't do that. You know that. And like you said it's never gonna happen anyway. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. That's why I married you."
"I want that too, baby." Bernie held Serena in her arms and kissed her softly. "I love you more than I have ever loved anyone in my life."
"I feel exactly the same." Serena smiled as she stroked Bernie’s face gently. "You are the love of my life Mrs wolfe."
"And your mine Mrs Wolfe."
"I better go. Will you keep an eye on Elaina while I go and pick Harley up?
"Serena, do you mind if I pick Harley up from school?"
"Of course not. I better go get Madam." Serena said as Elaina started to cry.
"I won't be long?" Bernie said as she stood up and put her coat on.
"Ok." Serena kissed Bernie and went upstairs to Elaina.
"MOMMA." Harley called out as he ran out of the school door. And ran straight into Bernie’s waiting arms. Bernie held Harley tightly and felt tears streaming down her face.
"Momma why are you crying?" Harley said as she tried to wipe Bernie’s tears away with his little hands.
"Because you're mine and your Mummy's boy. You know that don't you?" Harley nodded. "I will always be here for you. I love you so much little guy."
"I love you Momma."
"Lots and lots and lots." Harley smiled as he wrapped his arms back around Bernie as she picked him up and walked to the car.
"Hi Mummy. Hi Elaina." Harley said as he chucked his bag and coat on the floor and went into the lounge. Where Serena and Elaina were sitting on the sofa.
"Hug Mummy." Harley held out his arms for a hug. "Have you had a good day?" Serena said as she held him tightly.
"Good. Now does your coat and school bag belong on the floor my lad?"
"Then put them where they belong please."
"Ok." Harley huffed as he picked his bag and coat up. "Momma can you hang this up for me please." He said as he passed Bernie his coat.
"Of course I can." Bernie took Harley's coat while he went back into the lounge.
Momma I got a new reading book today."
"Have you darling. Let's have a look. This looks good." Bernie said as she sat down on the sofa.
"Can we read it later?"
"Course we can." Bernie put her arm around Harley as he snuggled up to her.
"Are you ok now?"
"Yes. As long as I have got you 3 I'll be just fine."
"You will always have us." Bernie turned to Serena and kissed her.
"Harley Wolfe is that your belly rumbling?"
"Yes Mummy. It's hungry."
"Come on then handsome. Let's get you a snack."Serena passed Elaina to Bernie as her and Harley went into the kitchen." What do you want to eat?"
"Ok sit yourself down."
"When Momma came to pick me up. She gave me a hug and she was crying."
"Yes. Is Momma sad?"
"No baby she isn't sad. She just loves you very much. And so do I."
"I love you both too."
"I know you do." Serena kissed Harley and made him a sandwich. "There you go. BERNIE BRING ELAINA IN."
"OK. Is that nice, mate." Bernie asked as she put Elaina in her high chair.
"Yes. It's my favourite tuna."
"Him and his tuna." Serena gave Elaina her sandwich and turned around and held Bernie close. "Why did you cry when you picked Harley up?"
"I was just overcome that's all. He is my boy isn't he Serena?"
"You know he is." Serena smiled as they stood hugging each other.
