"Dude, she's like secretly cool, who knew?" Kenzi said from her spot on the dock as she and Bo watched Lauren drive by on the Coast Guard boat.

"Not me, that's who."

Kenzi smacked her friends arm. "Don't worry I don't think The Ash knew either and he's gone be pissed!"

"I only wonder what the hell else I don't know."

"Time will tell but for now lets get some food, I'm starving!" Bo rolled her eyes as the two headed back up the dock.

The next morning Bo knocked on the door and waited for an answer. When she didn't get one she walked in and before she could take more than one step she saw something she didn't necessarily like. Wendell looked up from where he had just kissed Lauren's stomach and looked at Bo.

"Sorry, I, the door was unlocked."

"Wendell, do you mind?" Lauren pointed over at Bo.

He shook his head. "Not at all darling, I should head to work anyways." He stood up and threw a shirt on before heading towards the door. "I'm Wendell by the way." He extended his hand to Bo who shook it.


"Well I'll let you two chitter chat."

Lauren sat up in bed and pulled her shirt down over her exposed stomach. "So is he, like your boyfriend or something?" Bo asked without moving from the spot she had been standing in.

"Ex-boyfriend actually."

"He didn't look like an ex just now."

"I don't see how that is any of your business Bo, you refused me remember. Besides I'm sure Dyson wouldn't like you getting all jealous."

Bo scowled. "I'm not jealous."

"No?" And there it was the classic Lauren look, the one that looked right through her.

"Okay maybe I am."

"I promise I won't bite." The blonde motioned for her to sit down.

Nodding Bo took a few steps forward and sat down on the edge of the bed. "You seem kind of tired and a little hung over."

Lauren smiled. "That's because I am but the real question is why are you really here, meaning isn't Dyson going to be pissed?"

"I broke it off with him."

"Oh?" Lauren stood up and grabbed a sweater that was on the back of the couch. Bo tried not to smile at the sight in front of her, although she didn't think the hoodie was necessary it was certainly cute with Lauren's boxers. The girl walked over to the fridge and grabbed a bottle of water, "want one?" Bo shook her head and watched as the girl came back over and sat down.

"Wasn't working out." With that Lauren dropped the subject, kind of glad Bo was back on the market. "You and bar fights are two things I never thought I would see together."

"Ah, you were there for that?" Bo nodded. "I have a bit of a nasty temper, especially when I'm drinking. In this town I'm not Lauren, I'm still Carly, the girl who grew up on a boat."

Bo was pretty sure her mouth was hanging on the floor. "You grew up on a boat?"

Lauren nodded. "Yep, me and my dad, mom left us when I was small so it was just he and I."

"What was with the name change?"

"Lauren is my middle, Lewis was my mother's maiden name, figured it sounded good for a fresh start. So where's Kenzi?"

"At the motel we're staying at, or probably out lifting something out of someone's pocket, she loves the drunks."

Lauren laughed and it was the first time in awhile that Bo caught herself genuinely smiling at someone other than Kenzi.

"Shit, what time is it?" Looking for at the clock Lauren jumped off the bed. "I am so sorry Bo but I gotta get ready for work but if you want we can go for coffee tomorrow, bring Kenzi?"

Bo nodded and stood up. "I'd like that, and so would she, she's quite excited to see you."


"Yeah she loves that you almost got into a fight last night."

Lauren laughed as she grabbed her blue house coat. "She would."

"Well, I'll let you shower and get ready, I need to go searching for boat rides." The blonde gave her a look. "I lost a bet and Kenzi wants a boat ride, why I really don't know."

"Hold off on that until tomorrow, meet me outside the Coast Guard station tomorrow at noon."
