Monica went into the bathroom and stood in front of the sink. She pulled out lipstick and dabbed it on her lips. It was dark violet, and made her lips look almost black. Hopefully the child would get its smarts fromhergenes. Lord knows Dan could never cut it in Monica’s world. She would do anything to win.

Monica locked the bathroom door quickly, just in case Dan decided to come back. She opened the drawer and pulled out her birth control. Who knows what Dan could look into? He might decide to investigate her claim about the conception. So, Monica went over to the toilet and pushed out the pills she had skipped for the past few weeks. And as she watched them swirl down the toilet bowl, Monica thought of how beautiful this situation was.

Opening her eyes, Lia had almost forgotten where she was. The credits for the Disney movie were rolling up the screen. Lilly was asleep, cuddled up next to Lia’s body, the light from the television reflecting off the young girl’s face. Lia felt a strong warmness for the girl when she looked at her, which spread through the bottom of her stomach. She brushed the hair out of Lilly’s face, and smiled at the girl. Lia quickly stopped smiling though, when she realized how incredibly stupid she would look right now if someone were to walk in and find her grinning like a dumbass at this sleeping child.

Lia was tired from playing with Lilly all day. They had a lot of fun together and their time spent only reinforced the desire for Lia to teach young children. It also reinforced the desire for Lia to have children of her own one day. She tenderly moved Lilly, so the girl could continue sleeping undisturbed for now. Lia was hungry. She walked out of the playroom and glanced at her watch. 9 pm. She had lost track of time.

The lights in the dining room were on when she passed it, so she peeked inside. The guests were seated at the table, eating dinner.

Lia sighed. It was going to be a long night for the men. She recognized one of the men as Diesel, a man publically known as the leader of a crime syndicate, but never put behind bars due to an overwhelming lack of evidence on anything the police tried to pin on him.

But Kieran was absent from the table. She knew where he would be though, and her feet led her to his office before she could resist. Trying to stay out of his business was futile.

Lia pressed her ear against the door and listened. Kieran was carrying on a conversation, but it was one-sided. He must be on the phone. A few moments after she heard the phone reconnect with it’s cradle, Lia knocked lightly.


“Come in,”
Kieran said. Lia noted that he sounded tired. She entered, and noted he looked tired as well.

“Hello Kieran,” Lia said, pushing the heavy door closed again.

“Lia.” Kieran didn’t hide the surprise in his voice. “Is something wrong?”

“Oh no,”
Lia said softly. “It seems like it’s going to be a late night. Do you want me to stay to help you tonight?”

“No, no. I don’t expect that. You can go home whenever, Will is probably going to stay the night anyway.”


Lia nodded in response and turned to leave. She couldn’t walk away though, since she knew it would bother her all night if she did nothing for him. Her feet wouldn’t move. So she turned around again. Where was this overwhelming concern originating?


“You look tired. Would you like to help me put Lilly to bed? It might help make your night a little less boring and long.”
Lia watched Kieran carefully as he studied her right back.


“I would like that,”
Kieran said finally. He followed her out of his study. Once in the hallway, Lia stopped.


“Allow me,”
she said, circling behind Kieran to push his chair for him. Kieran didn’t object.

When they got to the playroom, Lilly was still sound asleep. Lia picked up the girl carefully, and place her in Kieran’s lap. Unconsciously, she put her arms, around Kieran’s neck. He looked down at her lovingly, and held her close to his body. Lia pushed Kieran down to Lilly’s room. He tucked Lilly into bed, kissed her on the cheek, and watched her sleep for a few minutes. Lia watched silently. After Kieran turned, and pushed his chair out of the room, Lia tucked in Lilly again and followed Kieran out. He was sitting in the hallway.



“Thank you, Lia. I appreciated that,”
Kieran said softly.

“Sometimes I worry you aren’t getting enough rest, sir,” Lia said.


“Lia, stop calling me sir.”

“Sorry.”
Lia tried again. “You’re going to make yourself ill.”

“I appreciate the concern, but I have no choice.”

“But you do!”
she cried. “At least take a day to rest before you start something big.” Lia had heard rumors about the family being on the brink of a gang war.
