"Mum, Mum." Elaina cried out as she woke from her nap.
"It's alright sweetheart Nanna is here." Marion said as she got up from the chair and picked Elaina up off the sofa.
"No. My Mum Mum." Elaina cried as she tried to push Marion away.
"It's alright sweetheart. Mummy will be back soon." Marion said as she paced the room with Elaina. "Grandad and Harley are back now."
"Bloody hell Marion what's up with her. I could hear her screaming from the bottom of the path." Jeff, Bernie’s Dad said as he came into the lounge.
"I have no idea she was fine till she woke from nap. Where's Harley?"
"I'm here Nanna, I was just taking my shoes off." Harley said as he strolled into the lounge. "Elaina what's the matter." Harley held Elaina's hand and kissed her cheek. "Come and sit with me." Harley climbed up on the sofa and turned the TV on. As Marion sat Elaina down at the side of Harley. Harley put his arm around Elaina. Elaina snuggled up to Harley and nearly immediately settled down as she sucked on her dummy.
"Good girl." Harley said as he kissed Elaina on the head as they both watched the TV.
"That was a gorgeous meal wasn't it." Bernie said as she wiped her mouth with her napkin.
"Beautiful. It makes a change to eat a meal without one of our children making a mess."
"Or trying to steal our food." Bernie smiled.
"I do miss my babies though."
"So do I. Why don't you facetime them. I know you want to." Bernie said as she squeezed Serena's hand. Serena smiled as she got her phone out of her bag.
"Hello." Marion said as her face popped up the screen.
"Hi. Is everything ok?"
"Yes everything's fine. Elaina was grouchy when she woke up from her nap but Harley calmed her down."
"Bless him. Are they kids there Marion?"
"Yes, they are in the lounge." Marion said as she went into the lounge. "Harley, your Mummies want to talk to you."
"Hello my gorgeous boy."
"Hi little guy. Are you being good for Nannan and Grandad?"
"Of course I am. Elaina has been a bit morngy. But she's OK now."
"Elaina look, its Mummy and Momma." Harley said as he turn the phone to show Elaina.
"Mum Mum." Elaina squealed excitedly when she saw Serena.
"Hi baby girl."
"Hi Baby." Bernie said.
"Have you been grouchy?"
"Mum Mum." Elaina reached out her arms.
"I can't get you baby." Serena said sadly as Elaina started to cry.
"Don't cry Elaina." Harley said as he put his arm around her. "Mummy and Momma will be back soon to give us both cuddles. Won't you."
"We sure will, little guy." Bernie said as she took the phone off Serena so she could compose herself.
Later that evening Bernie and Serena were laid in bed. In each other's arms after making love.
"Do you remember the first time we met?" Bernie asked as she kissed Serena in the head.
"Of course I do." Serena said as she looked up at Bernie. "You were dressed from head to toe in black lycra. I couldn't take my eyes off you. You were the most gorgeous woman I had ever clapped eyes on. And you still are."
"I couldn't take my eyes off you either. My God, talk about stunning."
"I didn't feel stunning at the time. I felt fat and ugly. I never imagined that someone like you would be interested in someone like me."
"Why would I not be interested in a stunning woman? No way was I letting you slip through my fingers. I had never met anyone like you before. I knew from the first time I kissed you that I just had to make you my wife."
"And here we are two kids later and still happy. You are happy aren't you?"
"So happy. I love you so much baby."
"I love you too." Serena smiled as she kissed Bernie before they both fell asleep.
