The sun had just rose. Nick and Dana where still asleep. Then came the sound of yelling
"Open the door ,Jess, this isen't funny" Elena yelled
"Yes, it is." Jessica yelled back, she had locked her sister outside of the house, while still in her PJ's.
"I'll kill you when I get in!"
"If you get in!" Jess hollared
"Jessica." Elena whined
"Do you hear that?" Nick asked as he turned over to face Dana.
"Yes, I do. However it's 5:30 in the morning and I want to sleep."
"One of us has to get up." he moaned still asleep
"Are you naked ?" she asked
"No, why does that matter?"
"Let's just say, since you aren't , you can go, and save me the trouble of getting dressed." she raised an eyebrow
"Fine I'll go." he said and got out of bed and ran downstairs. "Jessica, it is 5:30, IN THE MORNING."
"What the hell are you doing."
"The idiot threw my cell phone out the window!"
"I had set my alarm for 4, it woke her up so she threw it out then I threw her out." she said with a smile
"You woke me up, should I throw you out?"
"No, no. I'll let her in."
"If we hear any more sound until 8, we will throw both of you out!"
"We? Whose we?"
"Your mother and I, we, us, the two if us, your parents."
"You can stop explaining, I get it. You had sex until like 3 in the morning and now you wanna sleep!"
"That's none of your business!" he yelled and entered his room. "Shut up." he yelled and got out of bed.
"What happened?" Dana moaned
"Jessica threw Elena out of the house for throwing her phone out the window."
"Is Elena still outside?" she asked as she turned to face Nick.
"Jess, is suppose to let her in."
"You beleived her? Idiot!" she said as she got out of bed and walked toward the door
"Hey, you said you were naked!" he yelled after her as she walked out "You lied, lier!"
That morning Nick, walked into the RWHC. Lana glanced at him with odd look.
"Aren't you suppose to be at the board meeting?"
"Yeah, You are nomminated for Cheif of Staff."
"I am?" he asked
"Yes, hurry run. 7th floor confrence room."
"Who else is nominated?" he asked
"That son of a bitch, Kilner; Milo, you and Dana. Run, kid, your going to miss it." Lana commanded once Nick had got there the Board was giving a speech. He quietly entered and sat next to Dana.
"We have voted and have all agreed the new Chief of Staff for Rittenhouse is... " she opened the evelope "Dr. Nickolas Biancavilla."
Dana look at Nick who wasrn't paying attention "Babe, did you here him?" she asked
"Yeah, you won, congradulations."
"No, you did. Your the new Chief of Staff." she told him
"You start Monday, Biancavilla." the board member said and left along side the other nominees.
"I'm really happy for you." Dana said and kissed him
"Yeah, I'm sure you are."
"What's wrong?" she asked
"Nothing, I'm just shocked. Everything changed so fast. We got 'pregnant', filed for divorce, slept togther, got your boss arrested and we got back togther, now this. All that happen in like 5 weeks, maybe less!"
"I know, but now all that doesn't matter. We're together and happy. You just got a promotion and a raise, we should celebrate"
"Really what did you have in mind."
"Once we get to your new office we'll think of something," she said as they walked toward the elevator. Back at the RWHC Lana was getting agrivated.
"Look, maam. Dr. Biancavilla is not avalible now. He's in a meeting." she tried to explain
"But, I'm his mother, we had plans."
"That doesn't change anything." Lana stated, her computer beeped when she recieved a pop up stating the news of the CHIEF OF STAFF. "Tell ya' what. You can got up to his office and wait there."
"17th floor. To your left. Room 1721."
"Thank you." she smirked and walked away. As she approched his door she heard giggling. Without knocking she walked in.
Dana was lying on the couch with Nick on top of her. Niether of them noticed her. Until Dana opened her eyes. Her lips still touching his, she didn't know how to get him off. She begun hitting his shoulder and trying to push him off, finally he understood and sat up in silence.
"Good Morning, Nicholas." Lenore Elliot said
"Hey." he mumbled
"Let me guess, A snake bit her tongue you were sucking out the poison." Lenore relpied sarcasticly
Dana looked at Nick and whispered "That excuse is getting old."
"Weren't the two of you getting divorced, weren't you engaged?"
"We were, now we're not. And her fiance was arrested earlier yesterday."
"Great." she smiled fakely. She hated Dana, she hated the thought of her son with his own family. "You have your own personal free prostitute." she comented. At the sound of Lenore's final word Dana evacuated the office.
"MOM" Nick yelled
"Nicky, you have to leave that bitch.."
"Mom, I'm not your littile boy anymore.I make my own desicions, and I love her. I don't care if you don't."
"You're right. I should be supportive. I have no right to judge. I'll talk to her." she left for Dana's office. She tapped on her door and walked in. Dana was sitting in her chair. Her eyes red from crying.
"Hi." Lenore greeted, Dana didn't say anything. "I'm sorry about what I said."
"No, I was wrong. My son loves you, I can see that now. Even after what happen to us years ago it seams I haven't learned my lesson. I have no right to interfere in your lives now. I can see he loves you, I may not understand it but I have to accept it. Nicky isn't my baby anymore. He's grown, I can't change anything at this point in time."
"Your right, he isn't your baby. In fact he has two 'babies' of his own. Even they are almost grown.."
"I know. I really am soory about everything I said about you. I'm sure you're a great mother, an excellent wife, and a phenominal doctor."
"I'm not, I don't expect to be. I just want credit for trying."
"If only the world worked that way, right? I think you have all the credit you can want. I was wrong to judge you. Let's just leave it at that."
"Okay." she agreed "Thank you"
"Yeah, well. I should get going." she stated and left.
A few days later. Nick walked into the house. He threw his stuff on the floor and walked toward the kitchen. He opened the fridge and stood infront of it. Dana walked in and threw a bottle in the trash.
"Hey." she said
"Did you finish all the bottled water?" he asked
"Well, hello to you, too, Dr.Biancavilla. Yes, I did finish the water."
"What am I suppose to eat, now?" he whined
"Food." she suggested.
"Have you cooked anything, today?" he asked, Dana giggled then stopped
"Oh, was that a serious question? No, I haven't."
"And why not?"
"I haven't made anything since 1969."
"You weren't even alive in 1969."
"Exactly." she said and walked out.
"Woman, I've never understood them and I never will." he said to himself as he slammed the fridge door closed.It was like everything was back to normal. No more arguments, no more depresion, and no more secrets. Life seamed to be easyier for everyone.
That night Nick and Dana lyed in bed unable to sleep. The darkness of the room surrounded them and the only noise was the rain drops falling outside.
"I'm bored." she whined
"Suprise, Suprise." he said sarcasticly "We can..."
"No we did that, twice. I'm tired from it."
"I was gonna say we can play truth and dare. We haven't done that since our honeymoon."
"Okay, you start." she agreed as she put her head on his chest.
"Truth or Dare?" he asked
"Did you sleep with Robert?"
"Nope. My turn. Truth or Dare?"
"Okay. You have to put your pants on."
"Easy" he said
"With one hand." she finished as she took handcuffs from the night stand. "Your brother left these here." she cuffed his hand to the handle of the nightstand.
"I'll be sure to thank him." he said as he begun trying. An hour later he had the pants up to his knees. "Dana, this isn't fair." he look up to try and see her. "Great your alseep. I hate woman." After another few hours of trying to get his hand out he fell asleep. Morning approached and the alarm on her cell phone went off. She opened her eyes and rolled over to his side of the bed. She glanced down to see him asleep. Quietly she reached for the pillow behind her and threw it on him. He jumped up.
"Owww." he yelled when the cuffs restrained him from going further. "Dana this isn't funny, unlock these." she did as he said.
"Sorry, you probably had a hard time sleeping."
"What goes around comes around, Babe." he nagged the cufffs from her hand and cuffed her just like he was. Once he was done he walked toward the door and to the kitchen. Minutes later she came after him.
"How did you get out." he asked
"Isn't that dad's T-shirt." Elena asked
"Eww. Why aren't you wearing pants?" Jessica followed
"I had the keys," she said, avoiding her children
"Keys, to what. Eww. I don't wanna know what happened in there last night." Jessica explained
"Good, Cause they don't wanna tell you!" Elena yelled. She didn't even understand what anyone was saying yet she didn't wanna be left out of the conversation.
