Chapter 6

Babe made her way to Bianca after dodging Erica's questions. She had to think fast to find the reason as to why she wasn't upstairs with Bianca as thought. Once she felt that she had satisfied Erica, she left quickly. "Bianca, we have to leave fast before they figure this out." Babe instructed and waved her hands in the air to signify her urgency.

"Babe, I've been talking to Maggie and…" Babe cut Bianca off quickly.

"You didn't tell Maggie what we were doing did you? Bianca she is crazy over you and might try to blame this all on me." Babe's eyes darted around the area like a strobe light in search of a criminal.

"That's just it Babe. She's offered to take me away and erase any trace that might exist of your involvement. She's gone to check if there was any prints and such found." Bianca offered in as soothing a tone as she could muster. She truly was not a good liar but decided that she needed to go with Maggie's gut for once in her life.

"I've got to stop her before she ruins it all!" Babe shouted and tore towards her car like a bullet slicing through the air. "Stop right there!" Maggie shouted and shoved Babe against the car. "Did you really think that you could convince Binks she was involved in this screwed up plan of yours? You would have faired better if you tried to blame me you stupid slut!"

"You're not going to get away with this Maggie! It's full proof so either you let Bianca come with me or she goes down too! It doesn't matter that she's innocent, I have it all fixed up you stupid slut!"

"Babe Chandler," Derek began to say as he stepped out from behind the car.

Later that night, after all the hugs and tears, Maggie and Bianca were up in her room. "Maggie, once again, I don't know what I would have done without you. No matter what has gone down between us, you are still here for me." Bianca said and began to cry again.

"I always will be here for you B," Maggie said and hugged the taller woman. "I just wish that you could let me show you how sorry I am for the things that I did. If you can't, the friendship will never ever die." Maggie said and wiped the tears from Bianca's face.

"I can't stop loving you Maggie. I wanted to hate you, to erase you from my life but I can't. I just need to know why." Bianca said and tried to regain some of her composure.

There it was, finally what Maggie had been waiting for. "B, one night while you were asleep, I heard you talking and it was Frankie's name that you were talking to. So I let myself believe that I was just her replacement until it ate me up inside and she was there to comfort me is all." Maggie said sadly, as a tear escaped down her own cheeks. "I didn't think it was me that you really wanted but wanted me there to keep my sister alive."

Bianca had a horrified look on her face as she pulled Maggie into her arms. "Oh my God Maggie! That must have been terrible. Maggie you should have talked to me and this could have been resolved. My God, I am so so sorry and believe me when I say that you were dead wrong in your conclusions. Maggie I love you with all my heart and soul." Bianca further added and kissed Maggie tenderly.

"I know that now and I screwed it up on every level Bianca. I am sorry and wish that I could change it all but I can't. I just was no good at sharing my feelings back then and still need some work in that area." Maggie said and returned the kiss with hopes that she wasn't reading what was happening wrong. "I just hope that someday you can forgive me and believe that I would never hurt you like that again. I would never cheat on you just to be doing it in the first place. And it would never happen again if you would let me have my family back."

"It's going to take some time for me to be fully relaxed with you Maggie but I want to try because I love you so much. I am so sorry for not trying to talk this out before I came back here." Bianca said and the two began to kiss each other ever so gently.

As they held each other in their arms and kissed, they both felt a peace that neither had felt in quite some time. "Do you have a broad range of an idea as to how much time it will take?" Maggie asked, though she didn't want to push.

"Two more minutes should be good," Bianca said, smiled and the kissing grew more intense.
