Nicki came down the stairs to the smell of pancakes. She walked into the kitchen and saw her mom making pancakes and eggs.

"Hey sweetie. Sit down and have some breakfast." Tara said overly chipper.

"Mom? You do know it's two in the afternoon right?" Tara just nodded her head putting a heart shaped pancake on Nicki's plate. "And you're making breakfast at two in the afternoon, why?" Nicki asked starting to get worried.

"Because I knew you guys wouldn't be up until know and I wanted you to have a nice breakfast when you got up." tara explained.

"Oh, okay. So what time did Willow leave last night?" A smirk came across Tara's face.

"Eight o' clock this morning." Tara said innocently.

"Mom!" Nicki screeched choking on her eggs.

"Nicki nothing happened. We just fell asleep. Get your mind outta the gutter."

"Ya sure. Like yours wasn't there either." Nicki half said half mumbled.

Then a voice came from the front door. "Hey Nik? Kay and I are gonna head out. We'll see you later tonight?" Jenn said.

"Ya okay. See you guys later."

Then Alisha walked in. "" She said grabbing Nicki's pancake and shoving it in her mouth.

"Hungry?" Nicki smirked.

"Shu up! I's better tan eating that tupid lettuce!" Alisha tried to say. Then she sat down to eat the eggs that Tara had put on a plate for her.

The phone rang and Tara yelled with joy, "It's Willow!" Then she ran out of the room to get it.

Nicki was watching Alisha eat, never taking her eyes off of her. Alisha looked up.


"Your just so cute." Nicki said grabbing her hand and pulling her onto her lap, where Alisha straddled her legs.

"How about a morning kiss?" Nicki said pulling Alisha closer.

"Ya okay. I'll see you in a few minutes. Bye." Tara said hanging up the phone and walked back in the kitchen.

Alisha jumped up but somehow got her button stuck on Nicki's zipper. So when she jumped up Nicki came with her and they lost there balance and fell to the floor. "What the hell!" Nicki said.

"What are you guys doing? Stop messing around. And get of the floor, who knows how dirty it is." Tara said clearing off the table.

"Um, mom?"


"We're kind of....,.stuck." Nicki said.

"Stuck? Stuck how?" Tara said trying to help them up.

Then the doorbell rang and she let go of them. Which made them fall back down.

"Thanks mom." Nicki said sarcastically.

"Oh sorry honey. Just hold on a sec, don't go anywhere." Tara said as Nicki rolled her eyes. Tara went and opened the door. Their stood Willow holding something behind her back.

"Hey. Tara said.

"Hi. I got you something." Willow said pulling a single white rose out from behind her back.

"Oh thank you Willow." Tara said giving her a hug and kiss.

"I also got something for Nicki and the girls." Willow added.

"Willow that's sweet."

Tara was gonna kiss Willow again when Nicki yelled. "Mom! Stop with the kissing! We need help!!"

"Oh ya. We're kind of having a problem." Tara said as they walked into the kitchen.

Nicki and Alisha were still on the floor just in a different spot. "What happened?" Willow asked.

"They got stuck."


"You know I would like to get up sometime today." Nicki said. She looked down at Alisha. "All though it's not all bad." She whispered to Alisha.

Willow and Tara both grabbed them and helped them up. "Oh my god! What time is it!" Tara asked freaking out.

"Ten to three. Why?"

"Shit! I forgot. I have to go to a parent- teacher meeting." Tara said as she ran up the stairs to get ready.

"I am really sorry. I completely forgot." Tara apologized to Willow as she was heading out the door.

"It's okay. I'll be here when you get back." Willow assured her.

"You don't have to stay."

"I'll be here when you get back." Willow repeated.

"Now go before your really late." Tara gave Willow a kiss then finally left.

"Okay so where are you two stuck at?" Willlow asked. Coming back into the kitchen.

"Um......I don't know." Nicki said lamely.

"Really?" Willow said not believing her.

"Okay. We're stuck somewhere around the zipper part of our pants." Alisha said.

"And how did that happen?" Willow asked. "The truth. Nicki?" Nicki looked up but didn't say anything.

"I'll tell her. We were eating when Tara went to get the phone. So I got on Nicki's lap and we kissed and I got stuck. Okay!" Alisha said sounding mad. Then Willow started laughing. Both teenagers looked at her with death stares.

"This isn't funny." Nicki said.

"Sorry. Sorry. Um, well let me see." Willow said calming herself. Willow got on her knees and saw that Nicki's zipper was stuck under Alisha's button.

As Willow tried to get the zipper out she said, "You know this wouldn't happen if you guys wouldn't wear jeans to bed. i hear they make pants that are called pj's you sleep with them on." Alisha laughed and Nicki smiled.

Then they came unstuck. "There. So you two are dating huh?" Willow said.

"Ya big revelation there. Daughter of lesbian teacher is also a lesbian." Nicki retorted.

"And your mom doesn't know."

"No she doesn't. No one does except for Kay and Jenn. And no one is going to know." Nicki said pointing the last statement at Willow.

"Hey, I'm not getting in the middle of it. I'm just the girlfriend." Willow said. She was going to continue with the conversation when she saw Alisha shaking her head and pleading for her to stop talking about it.

"The nice girlfriend, who bought a present for you guys." Willow said going into the living room.

"Ooh yay!" They said in unison.

Willow came back in with a bowl and a green and blue fish in it. "A fish." Nicki said.

"A fish! Alisha do you know what this means?"

"Oh ya! We get to name it!!" They screamed as they grabbed the bowl and ran out of the room.

Willow looked around then went to get a drink.

Alisha and Nicki were staring at the fish in the bowl. "What about rainbow?" Alisha asked.

"Too original." Nicki said.

"Oh Bridgette!"

"Too girlie. It seems like a guy fish to me." Alisha said. "What about Jiffy?" Alisha added.


"Ya, it's perfect."

"If your peanut butter maybe." Nicki said.

Then they went back to just staring at the bowl.

Kay and Jenn were walking down the street to Kay's house. When they got there Kay turned and hugged Jenn goodbye. She was about to say something when the screen door opened and her dad stumbled out.

"Ya why don't you go back to the fucking bar!" Kay's mom said.

"Fine I will. Then I'll go fuck a complete stranger who actually like sex." Her dad said back. Then he turned to Jenn and Kay.

"Kay, where the hell have you been?"

"I was at Nicki's house." Kay said hoping he would just accept that answer and go away.

"Well get your ass in the house and help your mother." He said the next part louder. "Since she can't do anything herself!" Then he turned and started walking down the street.

"Well I'll see you later tonight?" Kay asked trying to forget about what just happened.

"Ya. You sure you don't want to come hang out at my house?" Jenn asked. Eying the house.

"Ya. I should probably help my mom or my dad'll freak." Then a second later. "Again."

"Okay. Well I'll be here to get you at about six-thirty. That good?" Jenn asked grabbing Kay's hand.

"Yes. That's perfect." Kay said. Then she gave Jenn a sweet and short kiss before she walked up her steps and disappeared into the house.

Jenn walked for about five minutes before she showed up at her house. Only one light was on which was her sister's room. That meant that her mom was probably out for the night and wouldn't be home till tomorrow afternoon.

Jenn made herself a sandwich then went to get ready for tonight.
