Three months later...
"I'm not a bloody invalid," she shouted at him that afternoon, her hand slamming down on the kitchen table at her apartment which caused her to wince but she didn't show it to much or he'd have ran over and would have started to fret over her. She was only three months pregnant with a slight bump to her stomach and yet Robbie was already doing her head in. She could sense that the idea of moving into his apartment from this weekend was going to be an extreme nightmare. Running her hand through her hair, she sighed. "I'm sorry, Robbie."
"It's okay," he said moving to sit down next to him, his hand reaching out to squeeze his shoulder as he smiled. "I should be the one to apologise. I did this to Gaby as well and she threatened to leave me so many times over it because she thought that I wouldn't let her breathe," he laughed shortly before rubbing at his neck, a sign that he was uncomfortable with the conversation causing Jackie to sigh. She should have known that this was going to be hard on him after his first trip through this.
Reaching out, she squeezed his hand and smiled at him. "How about we phone the guys and ask if they're free this weekend so that we have more hands to help us move this weekend?"
"Oh you're not doing..." he stopped talking when her eyes narrowed and he just smiled as he reached over and pressed a kiss to her lips, his hands framing her face as he smiled down at her and moved back. "Please do try to remember that you like me and that you're going to be the mother to my child every time I make the mistake to think that you can't do anything, right?" He pleaded causing her to laugh as she nodded her head.
"I'll try my best," she promised before standing up, her hand rubbing her stomach and watched as he moved towards his jacket to grab his mobile. "And hey, while you're phoning them," she called out to him causing him to turn back to look at her, "can you phone for a pizza? I'm starving." He laughed as he nodded his head, pressing a button and putting it to his ear where after a few seconds he said Ewan's name and started laughing over something. She just shook her head before reaching out to grab her book.
Thirty minutes later, she heard a knock at her door and was about to shout Robbie to say that the pizza was here when the door opened. Frowning, she stood up and reached for her firearm that she kept in the side drawer before laughing as she saw Stuart standing there with four pizza boxes and a bag filled with cola. "It's a good thing that Ronan isn't coming down later with Ewan or that would have terrified her," he warned watching as she put the gun away, her glare narrowing.
"What kind of idiot doesn't shout "Jacks, we're here" or something so that the detective in the next room doesn't decide to shoot your brains out?"
"Why would an attacker knock first?" Stuart pointed out before looking over at Robbie as he walked into the living room. "Your pregnant girlfriend just aimed a gun at me."
"What?" Robbie demanded as he turned to glare at Jackie who, in turn, just shrugged her shoulders before looking back at her book. "You'll need to excuse her, Stuart. She's become a little volatile since the hormones triggered," he pointed out shaking his head as he led Stuart into the kitchen. "I'm going to confiscate your gun," he calmly told her before apologising to Stuart again. "The next people coming through that door will be your niece. Keep the gun in the drawer."
"I hear ya, captain." Robbie just continued glaring before smiling at Stuart.
"You surviving alright?"
"She's worse than Gaby. She's only three months and she's armed..." Robbie whispered carefully so that she couldn't overhear them. "I'm not sure if this is best basis to start a relationship on," he laughed gently before grabbing five plates out of the cupboard then grabbing five cups as well when he heard the front door open and Jackie grunted indicating that Ronan had pounced the minute she'd stepped into the living room. Robbie was just about to call them in when Stuart went,
"You know, I think this is the best basis to start a relationship on Robbie. It means you'll know that no matter what life throws at you in the future, you can survive it." He responded before smiling at him. "Dinner," he called out taking the plates of Robbie and setting the table as everyone rushed in, Ronan giving her Uncle a hug before climbing up on a chair.
"Damn, this is going to be so good." Jackie said taking a slice and taking a large bite out of it, the noise of appreciation almost pornographic causing the three men to shake their heads before they started to eat their own pizza and talking to Ronan about her day at school.
Climbing into bed that night, Jackie looked over at Robbie and smiled. "Thank you," she whispered causing Robbie to look over at her with a smile on her face as he struggled to think what it was she was thanking him for. Kneeling up, she reached out and pulled him to close to her. "For putting up with me," she laughed.
"You're not that bad," he lied causing her to smile even harder as she shook his head.
"The gun is downstairs, you don't need to lie to me." She teased causing him to laugh this time as he leant in and pressed a kiss to her lips before pulling back. "I don't want you to feel like this is a bad idea, Robbie. I'll try to control my emotions." She promised and Robbie just shook his head.
"I'm okay with the emotions, Jackie. I've been your partner through god knows how many cycles?" He joked causing her to punch his shoulder as she smiled at him. "It's the nearly shooting Stuart's head off that worries me," he joked and she laughed as she pressed a kiss to his lips, nodding her head in response.
"No promises," she responded as she climbed into the bed, yawning as she closed her eyes. He just laughed before climbing into bed with her, a smile on his face as he closed his own eyes and fell asleep.
