Summary: Willow and Tara romance each other amid the haphazard antics of Tara's daughter and her friends.

Tara was walking down the hallway of the newly painted highschool when she ran into the cute redhead who teaches computers. Tara herself was the art teacher.

"Oh! Hey Willow."

"Hey Tara. Wows it goin?" Willow asked picking up her books. "Sorry about that."

"No, no! It w-was m-m-my fault and I made you d-drop your s-s-stuff." Tara stuttered. 'What the hell are you doing Tara? You haven't stuttered since highschool. Get over it!' She mentally slapped herself.

"That's okay. We still on for tonight?" Willow asked smiling her biggest melt your heart smile.

"Yes only I need t-to change t-t-the time to s-six-thirty. I have to help a s-student with there painting." Tara said as they started to walk to wards the art room.

"Oh thats okay better for me anyways. Not that your other time wasn't good. Like I was going to be really late or not come just because the time wasn't right. Because I would never do that especially not to you and your laughing. Why are you laughing?"

"No! I wasn't laughing at you. Okay yes I was but it's just you look so cute when you babble. I got what you meant though." Tara said calming.

"Okay so do you think Nicki will like me?" Willow said getting a little worried.

"Yes. She'll love you, but I have to say she's quite a handful."

"Thats okay. Well I got to get to class. I'll see you tonight."

"Right see you then." Tara said walking into the art class.

"I really hope Nicki's not getting into any trouble. Not tonight." Tara said to herself praying to the goddess who didn't quite answer her prayers.

Meanwhile at the park.

"Don't touch her again!" Nicki said.

"What are you gonna do about it?" Chelsea sneered.

"I just might have to kick your ass!"

"Well bring it on bitch!" Chelsea said right before punching Nicki in the jaw.

Nicki straightened back up and turned to look at her friends. Whom were telling her to just walk away. And she was about to too, but... "Ya you better walk away. Fucking Dyke." Nicki just snapped. She turned back around then punched Chelsea in the face followed by a kick in the stomach.

She started to turn around satisfied when someone launched her into the air and onto a picnic table, knocking the wind out of her.

Nicki got one punch in before she started to get beat.

"Nicki!" She heard someone yell. Then the weight was gone. Jenn had gotten Courtney off of her. She looked around and saw that both Alisha and Kay had people on them. Kay was getting the upper hand but Alisha had just got thrown into a tree.

Nicki picked up a tree branch and tapped the girl who was known as The Thumper on the shoulder. She turned around and Nicki whacked her with it.

"You okay?" Nicki asked Alisha helping her up. "Ya. Look out." Nicki turned around to get kicked in the ribs. She dropped the branch and fell.

The Thumper picked up the tree branch, made sure there was something pointy sticking out of the side that would hit Nicki. Then ripped it across her cheek. Then Chelsea got on Nicki and started choking her.

Alisha was looking for something to hit Chelsea with but was tackled to the ground.

Then the park police showed up. "Hey! What are you kids doin? Get outta here!" Chelsea and her friends made a run for it into the woods. Then the police walked away laughing about something.

"You okay Nik?" Jenn asked.

"Ya. You?"

"S'alright. Kay?"

"I'm okay. Gonna need a little help here though." Kay said from a hole over by the swing set.

"Alisha!" Nicki said. When she didn't get a reply she started to panic.

Then she heard moaning coming from a few feet away. "Alisha?" She said crawling over to her. "Alisha. Come on wake up." She said lightly slapping her in the face.

"Is she okay?" Kay asked. Half way outta the hole.

"I'm okay." Came a whispered voice.

"Ya she's alright. Just a little winded." Alisha opened her eyes. "Hey baby." Nicki greeted her. "Welcome back."

"Thanks." Alisha said grabbing her head and pulling her down for a kiss. Nicki quickly obliged.

"Come on. We should get going before they decide to come back or something." They all got up and headed for Nicki's house.

They opened the door and walked in practically dragging Alisha with them.

"My mom is gonna be pissed."

"Nicki? Sweetie is that you?"

"Ya mom. Just stay where you are. We're going up to my room." Nicki said. Trying to get to the stairs as fast as they could.

"Wait we?" Tara said coming into the living room.

"What the hell happened!?"

"We got in a fight?" Nicki said like it was the most natural thing in the world.

"With who?" Tara asked leading them to the couch.

"With Chelsea and some of her lackeys." Nicki said glad to be sitting on something soft. That was until she was yanked up and pulled into the kitchen.

"Nicki!" Tara said in an annoyed voice.

"No mom don't worry. It's not that big of a deal. Don't freak." She said getting a drink.

"Did you forget?"

"No!" Nicki said taking a drink of her water. "Forget what?"

"Willow is coming for dinner tonight." Tara said grabbing the first aid kit.

"Oh ya! Well it's all good. We can just get cleaned up and stuff."

"Oh Ya? What about this?" Tara asked grabbing Nicki's face and turning her head so her gash was all visible. "What happened?" Tara asked wiping off some of the blood.

"Got hit with a tree branch. Don't worry we got it all covered." Nicki said again grabbing the first aid kit and walking out of the room.

"Oh ya. 'Cause those words are very insuring." Tara said to herself.

It was right on six-thirty when Willow rang the doorbell. She heard yelling then the door started to open.

Tara had heard the doorbell and was running to get it. "Nicki! Come on!"

"I'm coming!" She said before starting to make out with Alisha again. Kay and Jenn walked out of the bathroom.

"Hey you two! No NC-17 stuff until after dinner." Jenn said.

"Oh ya? Well what were you two just doing in MY bathroom?"

Tara opened the door and yelled back up the stairs. "Nicole Taylor Maclay! Get your ass down here now!"

"I'm coming mom! God!" Tara turned to an amused Willow who was laughing.

"Sorry about that." Tara said embarrassed.

"No it's okay." Then they heard footsteps and turned to see four girls with nice clothes and bruises on.

"Geez mom. You don't have to yell fifty million times. I can here you the first time."

"Really? Well you could have fooled me. Nicki this is Willow." Tara introduced.

"Hi Willow. It's nice to finally meet you."

"Same here." Willow said as they shook hands.

"And these clowns over here." Nicki said as she turned to the three girls standing beside her who were making faces. "These are my best friends. Alisha, Kay, and Jenn. We will be accompanying you to dinner. Then we will disappear."

"It's nice to meet you all. Um...can I ask you a question?" Willow said a little confused.

"Ya shoot."

"What happened to you guys?"

"Oh fight. It's really no big deal. Well mom, I am famished. We will be in the kitchen when you would like to join us." Nicki stated as they walked out of the room.

"Don't touch the food any of you." Tara turned back to Willow and put her head in her hands. "I am so sorry."

"Oh that's okay. Boy she has a way with words." Willow said trying to be nice. "Accompanying. Famished."

"If that's a nice way of saying sh'e a smart mouth then ya."

Then they heard some laughing. A clatter. Some rustling. And an "Oh shit."

"Why don't we go see what they did, huh?" Willow said taking Tara's hand.

"Sure why not."
