A month later all the girls were up early. Tara was out back practicing her swings, hoping Willow would call her soon. Several hours went by and nothing, not a word from Willow, so she decide to take a shower. While she was in the shower Willow came by with a dozen red roses, one of the girls let her in, and she went up to Tara's room, placing them where she could see them when she came out of the bathroom. Twenty minutes later Tara came out, saw the roses, and read the card: 'Sorry I didn't call, I was in court all morning. Love, Willow.'
"Nice roses Tara," Terry said.
"Thanks, but I'd really love to hear her voice," Tara said.
"Would you settle for the real thing?" Willow said, smiling.
"WILLOW!!!" yelped Tara, turning.
"Surprise!" Willow said with a kiss.
"Yeah I am, you knew she was here the whole time?" asked Tara.
"Yeah I did, sorry. I'll leave you two alone," terry said.
She left and Willow walked over to the door, closing and locking it. Walking back over to Tara she kissed her passionately while her hands opened the towel, letting it fall. "You're so beautiful Tara," Willow said, guiding her over to the bed where Willow made love to her until nightfall.
A week later all the parents were there, except for Tara's, they were running late Willow was in court, so she went out back to practice until she heard her mom.
"You still wanna be the best, I see," her mom said.
"Mom, dad," Tara said, turning and hugging them.
"Hey what about me?" asked Beth.
"Oh my god, Beth," Tara said.
"How's my girl, miss me?" Beth asked, hugging her.
"I'm great... what are you doing here?" asked Tara.
"I just had to see you," Beth said.
"Oh," Tara said, spotting Willow. "That's nice of you." She walked over to Willow.
"Willow," Tara said.
"Hey beautiful," smiled Willow.
"There's some people I'd like you to meet," Tara said.
"Ok, lead the way," Willow said.
"Mom, dad, this is my friend Willow Rosenberg... Willow, these are my parents," Tara said.
Nice to meet you Willow," her dad said.
"It's a pleasure to meet you sir, ma'ma," Willow said, shaking hands.
"Such manners, your parents must be proud," Tara's mom said.
"Yes ma'am, very proud, can I offer you two anything to drink?" said Willow.
"Water for me," Mrs. Maclay said.
"Soda for me," Mr. Maclay said.
"And for you princess?" Willow said.
"Tea please," Tara said.
"Sure thing," Willow said.
"Tara, she so sweet," her mom said.
"I know she is mom," Tara said.
"Tara what's going on?" Beth asked.
"What do you mean?" asked Tara.
"For one you didn't introduce me to your friend," Beth said.
"Oh, sorry Beth," Tara said.
"Can we talk?" Beth asked.
"Sure, over there," Tara said, walking over. "What's up?"
"You're acting like you don't see me and you didn't even miss me," Beth said.
"What if I didn't miss you?" Tara sighed.
"WHAT THE FUCK!! Tara you didn't miss me?!" Beth yelled.
"No I didn't, ok? There I said it," Tara said.
"Here's your water ma'am, and you soda sir... Where'd Tara go?" Willow asked.
"She's over there talking with Beth," Mrs. Maclay said.
Awe that's so cute, sisters talking," Willow said.
That's not her sister, that's her... mean ass... girlfriend," Mr. Maclay said.
"Oh," Willow said, wide-eyed, as her beeper went off. "Excuse me please, here's her tea," Willow said.
Willow walked into the living room makes a phone call. Hanging up she turned around, almost bumping right into Mrs. Maclay.
"Oh, I'm so sorry Mrs. Maclay," Willow said.
"It's ok dear, did I upset you Willow?" she asked.
"No ma'am... Let Tara know I left," Willow said.
"It was nice meeting you," Mrs. Maclay said.
"Likewise," smiled Willow.
