Disclaimer: Do I look like I'm GA's creator? No. I am simply borrowing characters and plan to return them when I'm done.

Summary: "Lexie, I know," he said to her hair, brushing it out of her face. "I know, I'm ecstatic, and I can't wait for you to tell me on your own."

Author's Notes: Yay, a happy Mark and Lexie fic! I wish the show runners will stop fooling around and put them back together, but until then…I have my fics. Enjoy, and remember to review; it makes my day! Also, if this gets enough support, I'm going to continue it.

Mark Sloan was a confident man.

He took pride in his work, and that made him confident in it. He knew that he was good in bed, a beast, some said, and that made him confident. He knew that Mrs. Shepherd had raised him manners, and that made him confident.

He looked at the pregnancy test in his hands, and his confidence crumbled away.

He had found it in the trashcan, underneath some paper towels and some tossed out makeup, and he was sure it was meant to stay in the trash, meant to stay hidden, a secret until she told it.

But he had been nosey when he had seen the blue box, and now…now he held a positive pregnancy test in his hands and the secret was out and he was…stunned. Pregnant-she was pregnant. An actual baby was in her, and she was…they were having a kid.

He could hear her turn softly in the bedroom, and he carefully set the test back in the trash, where he had found it, washed his hands and picked up his discarded toothbrush. He washed it, too, before setting it beside the pink one in the toothbrush holder, ran a hand through his hair, and Confident Mark was back.

He smiled when he saw her, slipping into bed beside her, wrapping his arm around her tiny waist, and wondered what it was going to be like to be beside Lexie and feel her stomach grow, feel their baby growing. "I love you," he whispered, kissing her neck.

She moved in his arms, shifting and turning to face him. "I love you, too, Mark" she murmured, her head resting against his chest.

"I know," he answered, and she chuckled, falling back to sleep, never even imagining the double meaning of his answer.

"Lexie, I know," he said to her hair, brushing it out of her face. "I know, I'm ecstatic, and I can't wait for you to tell me on your own."
