A/N: Four years ago, I wanted to do a comical, light-hearted TSCC fanfiction. So I asked another TSCC writer to join in with me, and she said Hell yes. Four years ago, 4Kennedy and I started our silly romp. We completed 90% of it then we just let it go, sadly. About a month ago, I sent an email to her and a PM here on the website. Sadly, I never heard back from 4Kennedy. However, I wrote the last few pages the story needed to be completed. Now I am posting it.

For those that know 4Kennedy's TSCC work, I hope you enjoy our collaboration and silliness. We had a blast being on the lighter side of TSCC. For those readers that don't know 4Kenney, please please please go read her work, which you will find a link to her page through my "Favorite Authors". Lastly, I hope everybody will contact 4Kennedy, tell her thank you, and ask her to write again.

I will post one chapter a week (there are three chapters total). Thank you for reading the story. Hope you laugh as much as 4Kennedy and me!

"Come on, Mom," John argued, "Be a sport about this one."

Sarah sighed and leaned her side against the worn wood table in the small shed. She had her arms crossed and an unmoving expression.

"It's tradition," John further fought.

"For a Connor," Sarah reminded in a hard tone.

John threw his hands into the air then walked away. He spun around and revealed his frustrated features. "She's a Connor by now."

Sarah looked away from her son and set her jaw. She stared out the small window at their house.

John came closer to his mother then tempted, "She'll be so easy too." He grinned devilishly, and his green eyes brightened. "You know you want to do this anyway." He waited a beat then gently pushed his mom's arm. "Come on."

Sarah started bobbing her head a few times then her eyes flickered to John. "You know what this means if we do this, right?"

"Yes," John replied, "But she's earned it." He was serious now. "She's become a part of the family." He knew his mother had finally developed a soft spot after their heavy conversation a week ago. He wondered though if his mother would ever confront her or not about it. He suspected not, but he had hopes. "You know she's a Connor... and I can tell you've already got ideas."

Sarah could not hide her evil smile, which slowly started spreading across her lips. She loosened up and murmured, "Alright."

"Sweet." John was excited and suddenly turned to the worn table that had a notebook on it. "Let's do this." He flipped open to a clean page, grabbed the pen nearby, and drew a line down the middle of the page. He then wrote his name on one side and his mom's on the other side. "What you got?"

Sarah stood beside her son, studied the empty paper, and she became thoughtful. Her jade eyes lifted to her son, and she revealed her first idea, which made John laugh. She quickly relaxed as she and John made plans for tomorrow. Earlier she had resisted the idea but by the time their plans were ironed out, she was secretly excited for tomorrow. She just hoped it was all taken well by their victim.

To be continued.
