We lay in bed, Jays' arm around me and resting on my belly.

"What happened?"  I asked quietly.

Jay sighed and turned me to face him. 

"I basically told her the same as you Mia.  When I left, there was absolutely no way she could mistake the way I feel about you."

"And the way you feel about her?"

"What?"

"Does she know how you feel about her?"

"She knows I feel nothing for her Mia." 

He pulled my body against his and I rested my head on his chest.  "L

"She knows babe."

I nodded and my fingers traced the lines of his tattoo, soothing me as it always did.

"Babe?"

"Yeah?"

"Look at me."

I looked up to meet his eyes. 

"I love you.  You Mia and in a couple of weeks, when you and our little one walk up that aisle, I'm going to be the happiest man on earth."

"Shit."  I mumbled as I wiped at my tears.  "Damn hormones."

"I wouldn't curse them too much babe, remember when..."

I buried my head in his chest to hide my embarrassment and he laughed as his fingers trailed down my spine.

I returned to the lingerie store a few days later determined to put the scene with Sam behind me.

"Mia?"

I turned and smiled.

"Hi Janet.

"Hi, it's good to see you. Is everything okay?"

"Yeah, it's all good now. Thank you for your help and I'm sorry I caused such a scene, I'm honestly not like that normally."

I knew I was blushing again.

She smiled and waved her hand dismissively.

"From where I was standing, she deserved it."

"Can I help you choose something?" She asked, indicating the many racks of lingerie.

She knew her stuff and within an hour I had everything I needed.

"I'm about due for lunch, do you want to grab a coffee?" She asked hopefully and smiled when I nodded.

"So, who was that sexy man? The other sexy man." She clarified and I smiled when I remembered Cams words.

"That's Jays best friend, Cam."

"He's more than Jays best friend Mia."

I raised an eyebrow and she continued.

"He obviously cares a great deal for you too honey."

"Cam's great, he really is. I guess he's kind of taken me under his wing."

"Two hot men looking out for you. Damn, you're lucky." She laughed.

We chatted away through lunch and I genuinely enjoyed her company, she didn't ask anything about Sam and I didn't tell her. It was done. Over.

"I had lunch with Janet today."  I said conversationally when I put beers in front of Jay and Cam.

"Janet?"

Jay couldn't place her, but Cam sure did.

"The hottie from the shop?"
