"Why haven't you forgiven me?" I look up from the papers I was reading to look at Mason and his sad puppy face.

"Have we not been over this already?" I ask.

"Yes, but I still don't get it. You forgave Petal the same night and not me, your best friend?" He groans annoyed, frustration evident on his face.

"Mason, I'm busy, you know, working, something you should be doing." he groans and taps with a rhythm on top of my office desk.

"Have you talked to your mom?" I freeze and then look up at him.

"No, I need to mentally prepare myself for that. She's been calling and texting me asking how I have been. How do I answer without going off on her? I want to know if she'll deny it to my face. I just can't talk to her now. I want to know I am ready to face her." I say hitting the office desk with the tip of my pen.

"Do you want me to be there when you talk to her?" I shake my head no and breath out.

"Are you sure?" I nod. Mason, like I've said, has always been there for me. And he was there for me when I came out to my mom, so I understand why he wants to be there.

"So, you're talking to your mom alone, is what you're saying?"

"Yes, I have to"

"Whatever you want, just know I'm a phone call away. I have to go, Adri and I are having lunch." He taps my desk and leaves. Looking at the time I notice it's 1.

"Can you come into my office?"

"What can I do?"

"What are you doing for lunch?" he shrugs.

"I was planning on ordering pizza? What about you, baby?"

"That sounds good." Kade leaves back to his desk and comes back a couple minutes later.

"What were you doing?" he walks over to me and sits in front of me on my desk.

"Ordering, and locking my computer."

"How's your day than?"

"Good, what about you?"

"Good, better now." He laughs and bends a little to kiss me.

"So, your mother left a message saying she was coming to see you at the end of the week" he says pulling away from the kiss.

"She said which day?"

"No, just at the end of the week"

"Okay, I'll call to make sure she doesn't come here. The last thing I want is for her to come here."

"I heard you haven't forgiven, Mason?"

"I have, just love pushing his buttons. It's adorable seeing his puppy face." I laugh and pull Kade towards me.

"When are you planning to tell him?" I shrug.

"I think I'll push his buttons a few more days."

"You're evil" He says and wraps his arms around my neck pulling me against him.

"It's all fun and games, baby."

"Of course it is. Just like when we went paintballing and you hit him with a paintball on his chest without any warning and the game was over" I laugh and lean in to kiss him.

"Ace, not in here. I'm waiting for the pizza." He says when I try unbuttoning his shirt.

"A quickie?"

"No, you always say that and it's never a 'quickie'" he laughs and taps my chest.

"How long has it been?" he asks changing the topic
