"Yeah, Ma, what is it?" Jane's voice was rough as she answered her phone.
"Were you still asleep?"
"It's Sunday morning; yes, I was still asleep." She rolled her eyes and resettled on the bed, smiling as an arm wrapped around her waist. "So why are you calling me at 8:30 in the morning?"
"I thought we could have lunch together today. Maura didn't come home last night, so I have all this food to cook. I thought maybe we could have a little mother-daughter time."
"Maura didn't come home last night?" Dark brown eyes met amused hazel. "Hope she at least had a good time." Maura gave an enthusiastic nod of her head.
"She said she was leaving to finish up some paperwork or something. She works too much. You two both work too much."
"Yes, we work too much, and we never take any time for ourselves. I've heard this speech before." Jane reached over to run her hand through Maura's wild looking hair. "Look, I think I want to chill at home today, okay? It was a long week, and I just want to rest for a change."
"I could come over."
"Do not come over." Jane's eyes grew wide even as Maura chuckled. "No, I'm fine. I just want some alone time, okay?"
"Okay, sweetie, if that's what you want. But, if you change your mind, call me."
"I will. Bye, Ma." With a sigh, Jane ended the call and set the phone back on the night stand. "She's going to drive me nuts one of these days."
"Possibly," Maura rolled onto her back to stretch, the sheet falling down to expose her from the waist up.
"We should tell her soon. I mean, not like today or anything. Maybe, in a couple of months after we know things will be okay with us." Jane regarded the other woman for a moment. "Would that be okay?"
Maura rolled back to return to her placed wrapped around Jane. "Yes, that's fine, but it may be difficult. She has a penchant for showing up at the most inopportune times."
"Yeah, well, we'll deal with it if that happens. But, for now," the detective sank back down into the bed, "I say was sleep some more. I didn't get a lot last night, don't know about you."
"I didn't, but the sleep deprivation was worth it," Maura grinned as she allowed Jane to roll her over and wrap around her. "I still need to finish that paperwork."
"Later," the detective said as they settled.
"Yes, Monday morning should do just fine," the doctor commented before drifting back to sleep in Jane's arms.
