Willow and Tara were home by themselves sitting on the couch eating Lucky Charms.

Tara looked over at Willow. She smiled. 'Even after everything that's happened, she's still here.' Tara thought. 'Oh goddess. Please keep her here... no matter what!'

Willow saw Tara looking at her. "What? Do I have something on my face?" Willow asked rubbing her sleeve around her mouth.

Tara's smile grew wider. "No. I was just thinking."

"About me." Willow said. Willow smiled and batted her eyes. "Ya. I know I'm just so sexy."

"Yes you are and guess what?" Tara said crawling to ward her.

"What?" Willow said getting excited. Tara went up to Willow's ear.

"We're all alone." She whispered huskily.

Willow smirked.

"Well what are we doing just sitting here. Lets get naked!!" Willow yelled. Tara laughed and kissed Willow.

They were about ready to go further like the night before when Nicki opened the front door and slammed it as hard as she possibly could.

Tara pulled away and looked over her shoulder. Hearing her daughter stomp to the kitchen and slam stuff around.

Tara turned. "Rain check?"

"Anytime. Now let's go see why your daughter is home three hours early from school." Willow said getting up.

They walked into the kitchen holding hands. Nicki was sitting on the counter with a huge spoon sitting in the peppermint ice cream.

"Hey teenager." Tara said.

"Hey. Sorry for slamming the door." Nicki said. Mouth full of ice cream.

"It's okay."

"Good way to let out anger." Willow added.

Nicki smiled a little, then she jumped off the counter. "Hey Willow. Can I talk to you?"

Tara looked at Willow a little disappointed.

Willow looked at Tara. Tara nodded. "Ya. Sure."

They walked up to Nicki's room. "What's on your mind?" Willow asked.

"Alisha cheated on me." Nicki said flatly.

Willow sighed. "Oh. Nicki? Come here. What happened?"

Nicki sat on the bed and Willow gave her a hug. And Nicki told her everything.

After she was done. Nicki was crying her eyes out. "Well... did..." Willow was desperately trying to find something to say. "Did any good come out of it?" She asked.

Nicki sat up straight and looked at her.

"Actually... ya." Willow was surprised, she was about to kick herself for asking the question.

"I met this really hot girl who said I was beautiful even with peaches in my hair." Nicki said contemplating what this meant.

Willow was lost.

"Thanks Willow." Nicki said. Then she got up, gave Willow a hug and walked out of the room.

Willow went back downstairs. "So...?" Tara said.

"Beats me." Willow said leaving Tara with a weird look.
