Frustrations

When real life interrupts Maggie's attempts to date Victor, she takes charge of her life and those around her. Magic, with annoying Hortons. I don't own Days or its' characters. Also I cannot write a one-shot to save my life.

"Aunt Maggie, she's being totally unfair! Just because he's a DiMera…." Abby said as Maggie poured coffee.

"Uh-uh."

"She was totally married to Stefano's adopted son. Mom's being a hypocrite and Chad's a good DiMera, anyway," Abby said.

"Uh-uh."

"I'm an adult and can make my own choices."

Maggie laughed. "Oh! That argument. Well, if that was the case, your mother wouldn't be bugging me over dating Victor."

"You're dating?"

"Hmmm, kind of."

The news surprised Abby. She never pictured her aunt dating.

"Aren't you old?" Abby asked.

"Thanks. I was going to invite you to live with me once the repairs were done but now…" Maggie teased.

"I mean, it's just..I can't picture you with anyone but Uncle Mickey. How's it going?"

"It's different. Victor's very different than Mickey and…." Maggie shrugged.

"Victor as in Bo's dad, Victor? Wow. Isn't he kind of evil?" Abby asked.

Maggie groaned.

"I've just heard things and wait, wasn't he married to Carly?"

"Abby, we aren't going to discuss my relationship. And you just need to have your mom talk to Chad and Lexie more."


Maggie walked into Victor's living room and looked around. Victor looked up at his love.

"What a nice surprise," Victor smiled. Maggie tapped her fingers nervously.

"Victor, I was thinking…"

"Maggie, you're always thinking. You over think," Victor teased.

"Are you going to tease me or let me talk? Because you might like my thoughts," Maggie said.

"I'm sorry," Victor patted the couch next to him. Maggie sat down.

"Hi," Maggie smiled softly.

"Hello," Victor kissed Maggie. Maggie giggled.

"I can't believe we can actually kiss."

"Mmmm-mmm. We can definitely kiss," Victor's eyes sparkled.

"I think there's room for improvement," Maggie said.

"Is that a challenge?"

"Victor…." Maggie sighed, as Victor kissed down her neck.

"Yesss?"

"I'm assuming you might like sex," Maggie said.

"Whatever would give you that idea," Victor laughed.

"I'm thinking we should get tested for STIs," Maggie said.

Victor grinned. "This is feeling very teenageish to me. Do you have a curfew?"

" Victor," Maggie sounded stern.

"You're serious about the testing?"

"How many times have you had affairs? And at least two you know have produced children," Maggie said. Victor looked sheepish.

"I'm assuming you'll go too? For moral support, since the last time you had sex was…."

"You know reminding me that the last time was over a year ago isn't helpful in this situation. I've had affairs in the pasts and I probably shouldn't judge," Maggie said.

"Then don't. Just relax," Victor kissed Maggie, his hands trailed lower.

"Oh…."

"I love you, Horton, I love you…." Victor started to unbuttoned Maggie's shirt.

"Is this your idea of fun?" Maggie asked.

"Are you having fun?"

"Mmm…"

Victor chuckled.

"Hey! Don't laugh at me," Maggie said.

"I will never laugh at you," Victor said.

"Victor…"

"I love you," Victor whispered.

"I know. I love you, too," Maggie smiled, kissing Victor.

"Maggie, do you want to move some place more comfortable or…"

"I'm fine right here…" Maggie's thought was interrupted by the phone. "Damn. Hello? Jennifer? The radiator again? What did the repairman say? You don't know because Abigail took take of it? Yeah. I'll be right over. We'll probably need to replace it. O.k. Bye."

"You need to go," Victor sighed.

"I'll make it up to you," Maggie promised.

"I know. Call me later."

"Mmm-mmm." Maggie softly kissed Victor. "Bye, my love."

"Bye."


"So , what did the repairman say?" Jennifer asked.

"We're getting central heat and air install on Wednesday," Maggie said.

"How are we affording that?" Abby asked.

Maggie groaned. "I moved money from the annual barbeque account and rolled some over from my inheritance from Mickey. We seriously need to look at our finances. Between this, your school and Jennifer's medical bills, we need to tighten up."

Jennifer and Abby looked guilty.

"So no more gallivanting around Europe?" Abby guessed.

"To say the least. Also Jennifer, don't let anyone cut any more body parts out. Although I wonder if we could sue the prison…" Maggie mused.

"I'm sorry, Aunt Maggie."

"It's those Horton genes. I could ask Victor. The guy just gave up 47 million to impress me," Maggie said.

"Wait…Victor gave up 47 million dollars just to date you. How does that happen? Because it sounds really dirty," Abby said.

"Abigail! It's a thing between Victor and Brady. And no I didn't get the money," Maggie said.

"When is the work on your house going to be done?" Jennifer asked.

"Oh, in a couple months," Maggie said.

"Ah. So are you going to stay here for now?" Jennifer asked. Maggie sighed.

"Well, I could stay in a hotel or Victor's, I suppose. But I would be more comfortable here. I can get away from Parker and Chloe," Maggie said.

"You're really dating Victor?" Jennifer said.

"Yes, I am dating Victor. Which is none of your business but I'm going ask anyway, would it, oh, bother you if he stays here sometimes?"

"As in overnight?" Jennifer looked horrified. Abby grinned at her great-aunt.

"Way to go, Aunt Maggie!"

Maggie groaned. This was going to get complicated.
