Don't own any GH characters. Monica asked Alan for a favor.

Monica smiled as Alan came to bed. She cuddled close to him.

"What a past couple of days, huh?" Alan asked.

"Your sister rivals your father in being a horrible patient. Alice has to be an incredible person."

"She is." Alan sensed Monica was holding something back. "What? What is it?"

"I need to ask you something and I don't know how you'll react."

"Well, as long as you don't want to have an affair I think it'll be all right."

Monica took Alan's hand. "I'm nervous. But none of us are getting any younger so here goes: I want you to have a baby."

"Ok. We can look into adoption. It only has been seven years since we had this discussion."

Monica shook her head. "No, no, no. You don't understand. I don't want a baby. I'm happy with grandchildren. But I want—"

"--me to have a baby. Am I just to impregnate any particular woman or just some woman I meet on the street?"

"Well, I had one in mind…" Monica smiled.

"What, are you just renting me out now?"

"You never seemed mind renting yourself out before. Remember Susan Moore and Lucy Coe? It's Alice."

"Would you just get over that? I did divorced her and you eventually loved Jason as your own. What about Alice?"

"I want you to impregnate her."

"Are we pitch-hitting here? One Quartermaine for another?"

Monica hoped Alice had better luck with Tracy.

"Look. Alice wants a baby, and Brenda and Emily being the exceptions, Quartermaines seek their own kind. So…." Monica grinned at Alan.

"What does Tracy have to say about this?"

Monica hesitated. Alan started to chuckled.

"Does she even know? What kind of conversations do you and Alice have where this comes up?"

"It came up before Tracy's operation. Alice wants to be a mom and apparently Tracy is committed enough to divorced Luke and move out…."

"Wow. They're what, forty-seven and fifty-five? That's insane to start a family. " Alan looked amazed.

"Excuse me but we were trying at that age."

"True. So what's the plan, Dr. Quartermaine?" Alan kissed Monica.

"You need to be check out and Alice needs to start tracking her cycles. Alice wants a baby before age fifty."

"So that gives us a window of…"

"Two and half years."

"Well, we better get started. I'll make an appointment tomorrow and we'll take to the next step," Alan said.

"You know, I 'm not sleepy, Dr. Quartermaine…."

"Really Dr. Quartermaine…." Alan pulled his wife to him and started to kissed her passionately.

"I love playing doctor with you."
