PART III (cont'd)

Bly woke to a very persistent cat nudging her face with his own and meowing in her ear. Bly opened a blue eye to see Ares looking at her as she laid prone with Jordan draped on top of her.

"What do you want boy? You hungry?" Bly whispered as her cat pushed his face against hers in response to her question.

Jordan’s hand was slipped underneath Bly’s hand and Jordan’s other hand rested on Bly’s back as she slept soundly. Bly smiled and wondered how they got into that position in the first place but didn’t mind because Jordan felt so good against her naked body. Bly was tempted to go back to sleep and hope Ares would leave but she knew her persistent cat would succeed in getting her out of bed.

Bly moved her hand away from Jordan’s and rubbed it along her leg to wake her. She felt Jordan stir and then felt a soft kiss on her back as she glanced over her shoulder to find sleepy green eyes looking at her.

"Morning sweets," Bly greeted Jordan with a smile.

"Yeah...yeah," Jordan answered as she lay on her back.

Bly laughed and rolled onto her side to face Jordan. "Not a morning person huh?’ Bly asked resting her hand on Jordan’s stomach.

"Mornings are the worst for me," Jordan answered as she struggled to open her eyes.

Bly leaned down and kissed her. "Well, you have a couple of minutes to sleep until I find something for you to wear seeing as how we forgot to call Linda last night."

"Well....we were preoccupied," Jordan answered with a smile without opening her eyes.

"Yes, we were," Bly agreed as she climbed out of bed to search her drawers for something Jordan could wear.

Jordan fell back to sleep quickly as Bly put the clothes on the bed next to her and leaned down for a soft kiss. Bly fed Ares and headed in to the bathroom to get ready for her baseball game. Bly dressed in her uniform and sat on the bed to put her socks on.

" up," Bly replied softly as she rubbed her hand lightly over her stomach.

"Okay...I’m up!" Jordan answered as she sat up and rubbed her eyes while Bly smiled and slipped her socks on. Jordan moved over close to Bly and rested her chin on Bly’s shoulder as she wrapped her arm around Bly’s waist.

"Morning," Jordan whispered in Bly’s ear as she kissed her softly on the cheek.

Bly turned to find a now smiling face. "Thanks," Bly answered with a smile as she kissed Jordan’s lips.

"I put some clothes for you to wear on the bed along with a bathing suit for later that should fit you," Bly answered as she pointed to the said items.

"Thanks!" Jordan answered and kissed Bly’s cheek as she climbed off the bed. "You look very cute in your baseball uniform," Jordan replied as she walked towards the bathroom.

"You look extremely sexy in your birthday suit Jordan," Bly teased with a smile as she watched her lover approach the bathroom.

Jordan glanced over her shoulder and smiled as she blew Bly a kiss before disappearing into the bathroom. Bly laughed and shook her head as she left the room to gather her equipment bag. Bly also grabbed a cooler with ice, sodas and water to quench their thirst from the hot Florida sun at the game.

Bly felt arms wrap around her waist for a hug. She took one of the hands that were wrapped around her and kissed it. She turned Jordan to face her. "Well...hello my love," Bly whispered as she leaned down for a kiss.

"I could get used to mornings like this," Jordan answered with a smile as she captured another kiss from Bly’s lips.

"We need to shake a leg babe," Bly answered as she grabbed the equipment bag and threw it over her shoulder. "Can you grab the cooler?" Bly asked as she grabbed her plastic Gator cup and car keys.

"What are you drinking?" Jordan asked inquisitively as she grabbed the cooler.

"Dr. Pepper, of course," Bly answered as they both entered the elevator.

"This early?" Jordan asked with amazement.

"I always have a Pepper before my game Jordan...I have to," Bly answered as she looked down to the smaller woman.

"Why would you have too?" Jordan asked with confusion.

Bly looked a little sheepish and had a slight grin. "Aah...I’m superstitious...that’s why."

"You mean to tell me that you play better when you have a Dr. Pepper before the game?" Jordan asked with disbelief and a chuckle as she held Bly’s hand.

"Yep!" Bly answered with a smile as she looked at Jordan.

"Next thing you’ll tell me is that you have to put on your socks a certain way," Jordan laughed.

"Well...aah," Bly answered as she grinned and lowered her head in embarrassment. "Left one first, then the right one then the left shoe followed by the right," Bly answered with even more embarrassment.

Jordan laughed and leaned up to kiss her on the cheek. "You are so adorable."

The elevator doors opened as they pair exited into the lobby were the valet had Bly’s car waiting as she had instructed them to do every Sunday morning at 8:30. Bly threw the bag and cooler in the trunk of the car and slid into their seats as she put the car in gear. Bly hit the button to lower the top as they pulled away.

"You look very sexy in that uniform of yours Bly...I like the way the tight pants show off your sexy butt," Jordan replied with a smile as Bly entwined her fingers with Jordan’s.

"Thanks," Bly answered with a quick smile.

Bly parked the car and the pair grabbed their belongings and made their way up the path towards the fields. Bly put her bag in her team’s dugout and headed over to her family who had already beaten them there.

"I didn’t know your whole family would be here Bly," Jordan replied with excitement as Bly grasped her hand and led her to the bleachers where they sat.

"They are at all of my games as well as Daw’s games when he plays."

"That’s so cool!" Jordan answered enamored by the family support she had.

"Hey, mom!" Bly replied excitedly as she kissed her equally beautiful raven-haired mother who looked young enough to be Bly’s sister.

"Hey, baby! You look very happy this morning," her mother observed with a smile.

"That’s because of," Bly answered with a smile as she made her way over to greet her father and brother.

"Hello Jordan...I’m glad you came. How about keeping me company during the game? Oh, we have some coffee and bagels... are you interested?" Alexandra asked with a smile.

"Oh, I would love some of both and I would be glad to join you during the game," Jordan answered as she climbed up on the bleachers to accept the food offerings.

Bly stopped in front of Jordan who turned towards Bly and leaned her legs over the edge of the seat. "Wish me luck?" Bly asked with a smile as Jordan was at eye level with her.

"Of course, good luck and get a hit for me," Jordan answered with a smile as Bly kissed her.

"You got it!" Bly answered as she walked over to the dugout to put on her cleats and get warmed up for the game.

Bly put on her cleats and noticed Julie running from the car with Linda in tow. Bly laughed... "Hurry up you old hag!’re late!" Bly shouted teasingly.

"Bite me babe," Julie answered as she ran past Bly to the entrance of the dugout.

"Linda has already taken care of that from the looks of your neck," Bly answered with a laugh referring to the hickey on her neck.

"LINDA!" Julie shouted as she looked over at her sitting with Jordan on the bleachers and received a sly grin and a wink from her.

Bly stood waiting for Julie tossing a ball in her glove repeatedly as Julie hurried to put her cleats on. "Who’s pitching for their team Bly?" Julie asked as she tied the laces on her cleats.

Bly glanced over her shoulder to the other side of the field to check out the pitcher. "Don’t know Jules...they must have just picked her up...but we’ll crank her!" Bly answered cockily.

"Jordan...look who’s pitching for the other team," Linda replied with disgust as Jordan looked over and nearly choked on the piece of bagel she was chewing.

"What in the hell is Cindy doing on their team?" Jordan asked angrily after swallowing the bagel piece. "Why can’t she just stay out of my life!" Jordan replied as she climbed down the bleachers.

"Where are you going?" Linda asked.

"To warn Bly," Jordan answered as she approached Bly. "Bly...Cindy is their pitcher."

"You’re kidding...we wondered who that was. I didn’t even recognize her," Bly answered with a laugh and saw that Jordan was worried. "Hey, baby...don’t worry...I’ll take care of her," Bly answered with a cocky smile as she leaned into Jordan.

"Be careful Bly," Jordan whispered before Bly kissed her.

Bly turned to Cindy, who stared at the pair after her kiss, and flashed a smile followed by a wink which infuriated her. Cindy continued to stare at Jordan thinking, 'Let's see how happy you are when I take care of your little friend. You thought this was over, this ain't over by a long shot baby!'

Jordan sat back down between Alexandra and Linda. " Hey, Jordan...honey... are you okay?" Alexandra asked with worry as she patted Jordan’s hand for comfort.

"No..I’m not okay..I’m worried about Bly. The pitcher is my ex friend and she may try to do something to her."

"You don’t need to worry about Bly...she’ll take care of her," Alexandra answered with a smile knowing her daughter.

The game started and Bly’s team took the field first, quickly getting three outs to end the inning. Bly’s team came up to bat and the first batter struck out for the first out of the inning. The next batter stepped into the batter’s box as Bly stepped into the on deck batter’s box and took three practice swings before tightening her batting gloves to her wrists.

Jordan watched Bly’s every move and smiled as she thought about how cocky and sexy her lover looked standing before her. She noticed Bly had a much cockier demeanor and was totally focused on the game. Jordan smiled as she watched Bly stride to the plate with an air of arrogance. Jordan’s heart fluttered as she watched Cindy snicker on the mound as she readied herself to pitch to Bly.

Cindy released her pitch, which caught Bly in the head despite her effort to avoid the pitch.

"Bly!" Jordan shouted nervously as she stood up to check on Bly. Cindy returned to the mound and kept her face impassive, as she thought sarcastically, 'Oops!'

"Jordan...sit down...don’t give her the satisfaction. Bly will be fine...that’s what helmets are made for," Alexandra replied as she held Jordan’s arm and guided her back down. "See..she’s up!"

Bly stood up and tried to blink back her blurred vision while she brushed the clay off herself.

"You okay?" the umpire asked.

Bly shook her head. "Yeah!" as she turned to walk to first base slowly. Bly took out her mouthpiece and took off her glasses as she turned to Cindy giving her a smile and a wink as she reached first base, infuriating Cindy to no end. Cindy could feel her blood boil as she tried to contain her anger and pitch. It had taken a lot of smooth talking to get on this team. She had known that they would be playing Bly's team today and she just had to play. She was going to teach Jordan and Bly a lesson today. Especially Jordan, who does she think she is walking out on me, let alone embarrassing me in front of an entire restaurant.

Bly stood on first and took in a couple of deep breaths to fight off the effects of the beaning while the batter stepped up to the plate. Bly took her lead off the base and stole second base as Cindy pitched the ball.

Cindy turned around with a look of malice towards Bly who smiled and wiggled her fingers for a wave infuriating her more. 'Keep it up honey, I know your weakness and I will use that to my advantage, make no mistake about that! I took care of business once and I will do it again!’

"Hey, okay?’ the other team’s shortstop asked as she stood behind her waiting for a pick off attempt.

"Yeah...when did you guys pick her up?" Bly asked as she lied not wanting to let on that her vision was still blurred.

"Today, and she’s a friggin bitch!" she answered as she headed back to her position.

"You’re telling me?" Bly teased with a smile as she took her lead off the base.

Cindy looked back to check Bly and made her delivery to the plate as Bly stole third base effortlessly.

"I didn’t realize Bly was such a fast runner," Jordan replied with astonishment.

Bly took her lead off third base and Cindy over threw the third baseman with her pick off attempt allowing Bly to score the first run of the game easily. Bly sat next to Julie in the dugout and poured water on the back of her neck because of her dizziness and nausea that set in when she overexerted herself with running.

"She rung your bell didn’t she?" Julie asked as she looked at her best friend.

"Oh, yeah," Bly answered as she leaned over on her knees to cool off with the water.

"Tell them to take you out."

"No way...Jules..than that bitch will have the satisfaction and I intend to humiliate her today," Bly answered with anger as she looked up at Julie.

"It’s a good thing you had your helmet on Bly because you only have a mild case of brain damage!"

"’ve seen how she affects Jordan and I’m going to humiliate her."

"Yes...I have seen it and you can count me in on the humiliation buddy," Julie answered with a smile and a pat on the back.

The teams played through four more innings as Bly strode cockily to the plate again. She stepped into the box with the bat resting on her shoulder and glared at Cindy. Cindy delivered the pitch at Bly’s head again as Bly ducked to avoid the pitch with Bly’s teammates stepping out of the dugout and shouted that the pitch was on purpose. Cindy just shrugged her shoulders innocently at the umpire.

"Cindy...knock it off!" Jordan screamed with anger from the bleachers as Bly stepped out of the box. Bly was surprised her lover made such a statement.

Bly saw that Jordan was upset and pulled her sunglasses down while Jordan looked at her. She smiled and winked to reassure her. The ump gave Cindy a warning that the next pitch that came close to her again she would be ejected from the game.

"Sure, sorry...just slipped," Cindy replied apologetically, but her eyes told another story as they bore into Bly.

"Does your daughter have a death wish of some sort?" Jordan asked Alexandra with agitation as she sat back down.

"Jordan...she’s just sucking her in for the pitch that she wants and she's trying to get into her head and mess with her." Jordan frowned thinking, ‘That is one head no one should want to get into!’

Bly stepped back into the box and waited for the pitch with her bat on her shoulder, which Cindy delivered in the dirt for ball two. Cindy was so outraged she walked around the mound to calm herself and stepped back on the mound to ready herself for the pitch. ‘Come on, don't let the bitch get to you.' Cindy admonished herself. She noticed Bly still standing in the same position with a grin, which brought all the outrage back and she pitched the ball wide outside for ball three.

The catcher ran out to the mound to talk to Cindy and calm her down before she made the next pitch. "Yeah, yeah, I know how to pitch to her...just go back and catch the ball, Okay?" Cindy replied tersely.

"Okay Jordan...this is the pitch Bly has been waiting for. The pitcher is behind in the count and has to come in with a fast ball straight down the middle of the plate and there is no way in hell she is going to give Bly a freebie base."

"Are you sure?" Jordan as skeptically as she looked at Linda who shook her head in agreement with Alexandra’s statement.

"Positive and it’s going to be payback time for Bly when she connects," Alexandra explained with a mischievous smile as they awaited the next pitch.

Cindy looked to the plate to find Bly in her batting stance and ready as she delivered a fast ball straight down the pike with Bly drilling the ball towards Cindy’s head. Cindy dove into the clay to avoid the rapidly moving batted ball as it shot up the middle for a base hit with the crowd and Bly’s team erupting in cheers.

Cindy stood up and glared at Bly on first base as she brushed the dirt off herself. "Payback bitch!" Bly replied to her with a smile. "You have no idea!" Cindy retorted before turning back to the game.

The inning ended with Bly’s team unable to advance her around the bases and they took the field for defense. Bly began to feel very nauseated and her head felt like someone hit it with a bat.

"Blue! Time!" Bly shouted and motioned for time out, which he granted as she made her way to the mound and motioned for Julie to join them.

"What’s up Bly?" Laura their pitcher asked as she stepped off the back part of the mound.

"I feel like I’m going to blow chow," Bly replied as the color in her face turned white. "I just need a breather for a minute we need to stall them."

" need to come out if you feel that bad," Julie answered with concern as her and Laura looked around pretending to be going over game strategy while Bly calmed her nausea.

"Okay ladies...let’s play ball!" the ump shouted.

"Damn umps! They just make you hate them," Julie answered with a laugh as did Bly and Laura.

"Listen...Laura...sit these three down in a hurry would you?"

"I will if you drive in some damn runs so, we can get out of here," Laura answered with a laugh as she watched Bly head back to her position.

Laura struck out the next two and Cindy stepped to the plate. Laura threw a high pitch at her head as a retaliation pitch for Bly. Laura turned to Bly and smiled with a wink as Bly gave her a hand signal for an inside pitch.

Laura pitched the ball in the location Bly indicated and Cindy hit a hard grounder to Bly who scooped up the ball effortlessly. She held the ball and waited for Cindy to come within five feet of the bag and fired the ball to Julie who waited until Cindy was a step away from the bag and tagged it before she crossed the bag for the third out ending the inning.

Julie, Bly and Laura all laughed as they ran past Cindy on their way into the dugout. Bly sat on the bench and poured the ice cold water on her neck again to settle the nausea.

"You feeling any better?" Julie asked with concern.

"Nope...I need to christen the trash can...cover me!" Bly answered fighting the nausea as she headed to the trash can in the dugout with Julie moving along with her.

"Hey...Laura...stand here!" Julie instructed her to block everyone’s view as Bly got sick in the trash can.

"Better Bly?" Julie asked as she finished and they sat back down.

"For now," Bly answered as she rinsed her mouth out with water.

"How’s the dizziness?"

"Subsided slightly but my head is killing me and I feel wicked sick!" Bly answered with a disgusted look on her face.

"You’re crazy to stay out there Bly," Julie answered as she shook her head.

"Jules...have you ever known me to not play when I’m sick or injured?"

"No...but you’re still crazy!" Julie answered with a slight smile.

"Okay ladies...tie ball game. Let’s hold them this is the last inning because the time limit is running out so, we need to hold them and score some runs when we bat again," Laura replied as they gathered their equipment to take the field.

Bly grabbed her glove and noticed Jordan standing at the doorway of the dugout. "What’s up babe?’ Bly asked as she approached her with a smile.

"Bly...what are you doing?" Jordan asked with worry and nervousness.

"I’m letting her know what humiliation feels like Jordan," Bly answered with slight agitation as she turned to leave and was stopped by Jordan’s hand on her arm.

"You don’t know what she’s capable of Bly."

Bly turned to Jordan. "You don’t know what I’m capable of Jordan especially when it comes to a piece of shit like that!" Bly answered sternly.

Tears began to fall down Jordan’s face. "She’ll take it out on me that’s a guarantee."

"Stop letting her intimidate you Jordan," Bly pleaded as she wiped her tears away. "I won’t let her hurt you anymore do you understand?" Bly asked softly as Jordan put her hand on Bly’s which held Jordan’s face. Bly softly kissed her cheek. "I have to go Jordan ...the next hit is for you baby," Bly answered with a smile as she ran out to her position on defense.

The inning ended quickly with three up and three down sending Bly’s team up to bat in the last inning with the game tied. Bly strode to the plate with the bases loaded and two outs. Bly grinned at Cindy as she stepped up to the plate and readied herself for the pitch. Cindy sent a fast ball straight down the middle waist high which Bly jacked over the 335 foot fence for a grandslam homerun. Bly trotted cockily around the bases making sure she touched each bag and slowed to a walk just before home plate and stomped on it with emphasis.

She glanced over to Cindy who was walking off the field glaring at her and Bly smiled. "That’s for Jordan," Bly replied arrogantly as her teammates congratulated her and shook her with excitement.

"Okay..okay," Bly replied as she became dizzy from the movement and walked away from them stripping her helmet off her pounding head.

Bly changed her shoes and grabbed her equipment as her teammates had already exited leaving her to be the last out. Bly walked towards the gate and noticed Jordan waiting for her. Bly smiled as she walked towards her and received a hug from Jordan.

"Nice hit babe...thanks!" Jordan whispered as she kissed Bly’s cheek.

"That was for you baby. Come on let’s get out of here!" Bly answered as she held Jordan’s hand and threw her bag over her shoulder.

Cindy watched from the dugout as Bly and Jordan walked off the field hand in hand. Her anger went beyond the simple need for revenge. Now, she needed to teach Jordan a lesson about loyalty and respect. She had really been attracted to Jordan from the start of their friendship and when Jordan had finally admitted she was gay well, Cindy saw it as a confirmation that Jordan was interested in her too. Later, when she found out that wasn't the case, she had shown Jordan plainly that she was staking her claim, and marking her property. And no matter what, Jordan was her property! And as for Bly, she was going to learn what it felt like to lose. For once in her rich, pampered life, she was going to have to learn that her money can't buy everything. Smiling contently as her plan began to unfold in her head, she got up and walked toward her truck. There was time enough for everything and began whistling an off-key tune.

"Bly... we’ll see you at the marina and that was a great hit honey!" Alexandra replied with happiness as she patted Bly on the back as everyone made their way to the cars.

"Thanks mom," Bly answered with a smile.

"Hey, Bly! Nice hit babe!" Dawson replied as he put his fist out for Bly who tapped her fist with his.

"Did you learn something bro?" Bly teased.

"Very funny. You know I taught you everything you know," Dawson answered with a laugh.

"Yeah...sure you did!" Bly answered with a laugh as Bly’s father put his arm around Bly’s neck and hugged her.

"Great hit kiddo. We’ll see you soon," he replied as he patted her butt to get her moving as they headed off to there car.

"Thanks dad," Bly answered as they reached her car. Bly turned to Jordan and handed her the car keys. "Will you drive babe?" Bly asked knowing she was in no condition to drive a car.

Jordan was stunned as she looked at the keys, the car and back at Bly. "Bly...I don’t know if I should?" she answered nervously.

"’s only a car and I’m sure you’ll do fine," Bly answered as she squeezed her hand for reassurance and kissed her cheek before getting into the car on the passengers side.

Jordan walked around the car to the driver’s side. "’s only a car! It costs more than I would ever make in two years!" Jordan mumbled to herself before she climbed into the driver’s seat and noticed Bly had her head resting against the seat with her eyes closed.

Jordan put her hand on Bly’s and looked at her with concern. "Are you okay?"

Bly turned to her and smiled... "just tired and thanks for the concern. ‘If she only knew that I felt like someone used my head for batting practice because of that bitch Cindy she would probably try to rip her head off. Wouldn’t be a bad idea but it’s best to leave it alone Bly.’ She thought to herself as she closed her eyes again and leaned the seat back.

"Bly, which way am I heading?" Jordan asked as she started the car.

"Oh, take Sheridan to I-95 north and then take Oakland east and then I’ll tell you where to go once we get there," Bly instructed her.

"Got it!" Jordan answered as she slowly backed the Mercedes out of the parking lot checking nervously for other cars numerous times.

Bly looked at Jordan and smiled at her nervousness. "Honey, just drive as if it was your car. You’re not going to hurt it. Besides, you’ve seen how I drive so, don’t worry," Bly replied as she patted her leg for reassurance and left her hand in it’s position as she laid her head back.

Jordan pulled out of the park and headed down Sheridan street to follow Bly’s directions as Bly fell asleep. Jordan enjoyed Bly’s hand on her leg and once she felt more comfortable with the car she put her hand on Bly’s who continued to sleep. Jordan steered them toward the beach and hated to wake Bly but she had to for the remainder of the directions.

"Bly...honey, wake up!" Jordan replied as she gently shook her hand to wake her.

"Aah...yeah...what’s up?" Bly asked as she looked confused from her sleep.

"Which way do I go now?"

"Oh, go right on A1A, then take a right into the marina just before the swimming hall of fame," Bly answered as she leaned her head back and fought her nausea back hoping Jordan would step on it and get them there quickly.

Jordan finally steered them into the marina. "Which one is it Bly?"

"The Infinite," Bly answered through her sleepiness.

Jordan’s eyes widened when she saw the boat. "What a huge boat!...scratch that ...yacht! It has to be about a 90 footer!...this is so unreal." Jordan thought to herself in amazement as she parked the car.

They both gathered their belongings and headed on board the yacht as the first mate Daphne took their belongings from them.

"Can you put them in my room please?...I’ll be in shortly to take a shower," Bly informed the first mate.

"Sure Bly...everybody is on the back deck awaiting your arrival," Daphne answered.

"Thanks..oh, Daphne...I want you to meet my girlfriend Jordan," Bly answered with a smile as she turned to Jordan.

"Welcome aboard Jordan and it’s a pleasure to meet you," Daphne answered with a smile as she reached her hand out for Jordan’s.

Jordan shook the first mate’s hand with a smile. "Nice to meet you too," Jordan answered as Bly lead her off to the back deck.

"Hey! Long time no see!" Julie teased as they greeted everyone.

"I’m gonna go take a shower so, make yourself at home. Okay?" Bly asked as she turned to Jordan.

"Sure...but don’t be long because I’ll miss you," Jordan answered with a smile as she kissed Bly.

"I’ll try to hurry," Bly answered as she looked over at Julie. "You did take a shower didn’t’ you? Because I smell something funky other than myself," Bly teased with a laugh.

"’re a freaking laugh a minute Bly!" Julie laughed mockingly as everyone else chuckled. Bly headed off towards her room shaking her head and laughing.

"Hey, Jordan! Bly tells me you like beer! What brand?" Chance asked as he opened the cooler.

"Corona please," Jordan answered with a smile before sitting in a deck chair next to Dawson.

"Ooh, a woman after my own heart...corona huh?" Jordan laughed as Dawson leaned closer to her. "Are you sure you want to stay with that booger sister of mine?" he asked as he flashed a familiar sexy smile.

"’ll be the first to know if I switch teams which by the way, will never happen," Jordan answered as Chance handed her an ice cold Corona with a lime in it... "Thank you."

The yacht pulled out of the marina as Bly hugged the porcelain god from her sickness. She stopped long enough to take a shower and figured it might help. She finished her shower and dressed in her bikini top and swim shorts and laid on the bed.

"I’m going to check on that slow poke daughter of mine," Alexandra replied as she rose from her chair and headed off to find Bly. Alexandra entered the room to find Bly on the bed asleep. She climbed up on the bed and laid on her side facing Bly as she pushed her hair off her forehead awakening Bly.

"What’s up mom?" Bly asked finding it hard to keep her eyes open.

"You tell me. What’s wrong with my little pumpkin."

Bly smiled and looked at her mother who lightly stroked her hand on Bly’s cheek. "Mom...I’m too old to be your little pumpkin."

"Never...not even when I’m 95 and you’re 70!" she teased as she leaned down and kissed her forehead. "Let me little pumpkin go her bell rung?" she asked as she ran her fingers through her hair.

" are pretty sharp!" Bly answered with a sarcastic laugh.

"I’ll have Daphne get your father so he can check you out Bly."

"Mom...I have a mild concussion. You don’t need to get daddy."

"Are you a doctor now?" she asked with concern as she buzzed for Daphne.

"No..but I know the signs of a concussion. Did you forget I majored in Physical Therapy?" Bly asked with a chuckle.

"Is that what you majored in? I thought it was volleyball and softball," Alexandra teased.

"Very funny...but I could say the same for you and If I remember correctly my GPA was better than yours!" Bly teased as Daphne entered.

"Yes ma’am?"

"Could you please have Chance come in here please... Bly’s sick."

"Daphne...please don’t let anyone else know," Bly asked with worry.

"Sure Bly..I’ll send him in," she answered as she exited the room.

"You had to bring up the GPA again didn’t you? You just had to rub it in that you were Magna cum laude and I was only Sum cum laude right?" Alexandra asked with a laugh.

" didn’t think I would actually let you win that bet did you?"

"You could have taken pity on your poor mother," Alexandra answered as she pretended to pout.

"No way woman! I wanted the car!" Bly answered with a laugh. "Besides, I love winning too much to have lost that bet!"

"Oh, you are so sassy! I should take you over my knee and spank you," Alexandra teased with a laugh.

"Wouldn’t work mom because you know I would enjoy it too much," Bly answered with a laugh.

"Bly...I think this is the happiest I have ever seen you and it’s because of Jordan. I’m glad to see your sadness has been replaced by happiness, because I missed that beautiful smile of yours," Alexandra answered with happiness as she pinched Bly’s cheek.

"You’re right usual," Bly answered with a sly smile. " Jordan has made me very happy and I didn’t think I would ever find someone to love as much as I love her."

"I’m so happy for you baby. We really love Jordan too. You need to watch your brother though he’s trying to get her to switch teams," Alexandra informed her with a laugh.

"Can’t he get a woman of his own?" Bly answered as they both laughed and Bly’s face turned serious as she asked. "Mom...can you do me a huge favor?"

"Anything pumpkin."

"Can you have the pitcher of the other team Jordan’s ex-friend investigated for me? She has made Jordan’s life miserable and she has been physically abusive to her."

"Oh, poor Jordan. That’s terrible to do something like that to such a sweet girl. Get me that bitch’s name and I will have Dawson’s investigator dig up some dirt on her."

"Thanks...but let’s keep it amongst the three of us until we find something okay?"

"I will but, you shouldn’t hide things from her Bly."

"I know, but let’s see what you find out first okay?"

"Sure," Alexandra answered with a smile.

"What’s up ladies?" Chance asked as he entered the room.

"Can you check Bly out. She is playing doctor and thinks she has a concussion," Alexandra informed him as she stuck her tongue out at Bly who laughed.

"Is daddy’s girl sick?" he teased as he sat next to her on the bed.

"What is it with you two!" Bly laughed with wonderment.

"Open those beautiful blue eyes of yours more for me and let daddy see," he asked with a laugh.

"You two are killing me!" Bly answered as she opened her eyes wide and her dad held them open to get a better look.

"Have you been vomiting?"

"Yes...excessively," Bly answered with a disgusted look on her face.

He put his hands on her face. "You should become a doctor because you have a mild concussion pumpkin. Just take it easy and you’ll be fine," he answered reassuringly as he kissed her forehead before getting up.

"I told you mother!" Bly answered as she stuck her tongue out at her mother in retaliation.

"Yeah...yeah..come on pukie...sit on deck and maybe you’ll feel better," Alexandra responded as she took Bly’s hand and helped her up.

They joined the rest of the crowd and Bly sat in a deck chair between Dawson and Jordan. Bly leaned over to Dawson, "Find your own girl bro," Bly teased.

"You’re a very lucky woman Bly," Dawson answered with a smile.

"The luckiest dude!" Bly answered with a smile as she reached over and held Jordan’s hand. Bly turned to Jordan and raised her hand to her lips for a kiss. "Having fun?"

"I am now!" Jordan answered with a smile as she looked lovingly at Bly. "Are you okay? You look a little pale Bly," Jordan asked with concern.

"Oh, I’m fine. It’s probably because I took a cold shower to wake up. It’s nothing to worry about," Bly answered with a smile reassuringly.

The yacht cruised out of the intracoastal waterway towards the open sea where they dropped anchor once they arrived at their destination.

"Hey! Let’s take the waverunners out!" Dawson remarked with excitement as he headed over to them.

"Sounds great!" Julie answered as her and Linda walked over to help Dawson uncover and lower them off the back of the boat.

"Come on Bly," Jordan replied with excitement as she got out of the chair and held her hand out for Bly.

Bly reluctantly got out of the chair and took Jordan’s hand to join everyone else. They all put on their life vests and got on the waverunners. " drive," Bly replied with a smile.

"Are you sure?" Jordan asked with excitement at the thought of driving the waverunner.

"Sure...go ahead and hop on," Bly answered as Jordan jumped on the watercraft with Bly sliding in behind her as Jordan hit the ignition on the waverunner. Bly wrapped her arms around Jordan’s waist tightly and placed a kiss on her cheek.

"Are you ready?" Jordan asked with excitement.

"Yeah...go ahead," Bly answered with a chuckle.

They drove around jumping waves and racing one another for about 30 minutes as Bly became very sick. Bly laid her head against Jordan’s back to fight off her nausea.

"Jordan...take me back," Bly replied as she could no longer fight back her feeling of nausea and got sick off the side of the waverunner.

"Bly... what’s wrong?" Jordan asked with worry as Bly became very dizzy. Bly leaned closer to the edge of the waverunner as Jordan turned around to grab her before she fell in the water. "Bly...what’s going on?" Jordan asked nervously as she struggled to right her on the waverunner.

Bly blinked her eyes trying to ease the dizziness and leaned away from Jordan as she got sick again. "Jordan...just get me back to the Infinite okay?" Bly asked with embarrassment.

"Here...sit in the front and lean against me because I’m afraid you’ll fall off," Jordan answered as she stood to the side to allow Bly in front of her.

Jordan crawled in behind Bly who leaned back against Jordan resting her head on her shoulder as Jordan steered the waverunner back to the yacht. Bly slowly climbed off the waverunner as Jordan pulled it up next to the yacht and headed for the bathroom immediately.

Jordan secured the waverunner and searched out Bly who had laid on her bed with her eyes closed to settle the nausea and dizziness.

Jordan crawled in bed next to her and stretched out on her side propping her head up on one hand. "Baby..what’s wrong?"

Bly opened her blues eyes. "I have a mild concussion from the beaning I got from Cindy and it didn’t help getting knocked around on the waverunner."

"Why didn’t you tell me sooner? I wouldn’t have made you go out on the waverunner."

"It’s okay Jordan...I’ll be fine," Bly reassured her as she stroked her face with the back of her hand as she looked into regretful green eyes. " I didn’t want you to worry."

"Cindy is such a bitch and I’m going to make her pay for this Bly!" Jordan answered with anger.

"Hey,’s okay. I don’t want you to do anything to her I will handle it. Okay?" Bly answered with worry and didn’t want Jordan near Cindy.

"Bly...Cindy is my problem not yours," Jordan replied sternly.

"She became my problem the minute she laid her filthy hands on you. Promise me you won’t go near her and you’ll let me handle her in my own way?" Bly asked as she took Jordan’s hand in her own and kissed it.

"What are you going to do?" Jordan asked with confusion.

"I’ll let you know when I find something out. Just trust me," Bly answered as she gently and slowly pulled Jordan down to her for a soft kiss.

"I love you Bly. I’m sorry you’re sick and that Cindy is the cause of it," Jordan answered with regret as tears welled.

"I’ll be fine babe I just need to rest and if you want to head back up with everyone else while I take a nap go ahead," Bly answered reassuringly.

"No...I’ll stay here with you Bly," Jordan answered as she kissed Bly and ran her fingers through Bly’s raven hair as Bly fell asleep. ‘I regret that this wonderful, caring and loving person who I’ve lost my heart to had to be brought into this mess with Cindy. I love Bly so much and I hate it that she’s sick and could have been injured far worse because of Cindy.’ Jordan thought to herself as she watched her gorgeous lover sleep peacefully.

Jordan leaned down and kissed her forehead while she continued to run her fingers through her hair as Bly snuggled closer to Jordan content in her lover’s arms. Bly slept for over two hours wrapped in Jordan’s arms as Julie came in to check on her.

"Hey, how she doing?" Julie asked in a whisper.

"She’s been sleeping for a couple of hours now."

"Her dad sent me down to have her get up and eat something. He doesn’t want her sleeping for too many hours at a time."

"Okay...I’ll wake her then," Jordan answered with a smile as Julie acknowledged Jordan’s answer and left the room. Jordan softly kissed Bly’s lips and put her hand on her stomach as she lightly shook her to wake her. "Sweetheart...wake up."

Bly opened her sleepy blue eyes and peered into Jordan’s green eyes with a smile. "I love waking up with you looking at me Jordan," Bly replied with a smile as Jordan leaned down and kissed her.

"Your dad said you should get up and eat something. Are you feeling better?" Jordan asked with concern.

"Yeah...I’m feeling better and maybe some food will help," Bly answered as she slowly sat up and ran her slender fingers through her disheveled dark hair.

Jordan came around to the side of the bed and helped her up. Bly wrapped her arm around Jordan’s shoulders and kissed her. "Thanks for staying with me babe."

"I didn’t want to be anywhere else Bly," Jordan answered with a smile as they headed out to the back deck.

They sat at the table to join everyone else and Bly’s dad checked his daughter out. "You look better peanut," he replied with a smile and a kiss on the forehead.

Jordan looked at Bly as her father went to sit down. "Peanut?" she asked with a sly grin.

"You behave Jordan!" Bly answered with an embarrassed smile as she pointed at her.

"Jordan...I hope you like steak and Maine lobster on the grill because that’s what we’re having today," Alexandra informed her with a smile.

"Sounds delicious!" Jordan answered with a smile.

Alexandra reached over and ran her fingers through Bly’s hair. "Feeling better?" she asked with concern as Jordan looked on and thought about how lucky Bly was to have such caring and loving parents unlike the one’s she has.

"I’m better....thanks for asking mom," Bly answered with a smile as she put her hand in Jordan’s sending a rush of warmth throughout Jordan’s body from her touch.

Everyone finished dinner as the yacht pulled back into the marina around 8 PM and they all said their good-bye’s. Jordan and Bly headed back to the penthouse to a very hungry and agitated cat.

"Hey, boy...mommy will feed you in a minute," Bly replied sweetly as she put her belongings down.

"Go lay down Bly. I’ll take care of him," Jordan offered as Bly wrapped her in her arms.

"Thanks, but I can’t go to sleep just yet. I have to pack," Bly answered with regret.

"Pack? Where are you going?" Jordan asked confused.

"I totally forgot that I have to leave for a seminar in Boston tomorrow morning. I’m sorry," Bly answered as she brushed the errant strand of blond hair off Jordan’s face.

"Oh, Bly...for how long?" Jordan asked with disappointment.

"Until next Sunday night babe," Bly answered with regretful blue eyes.

"I’m going to miss you so much!" Jordan answered with tears in her eyes as she hugged Bly’s neck tightly.

"Come with me Jordan," Bly asked softly in her ear.

"I can’t Bly. I have to work and I don’t have money for a flight at such a late date.

Bly kissed Jordan. "I can buy it for you."

"No...I don’t want you to buy for me all the time," Jordan answered adamantly.

"I have a lot of frequent flyer miles and I know I could get a free ticket for you. Would you except that?" Bly asked hoping Jordan would agree.

"But then you wouldn’t have a free ticket to use at a later date."

"Jordan...I won’t be able to use all of my frequent flyer miles before they expire anyway so, please take it," Bly answered with a smile.

Jordan searched her eyes and saw that Bly really wanted her to go and Jordan wanted to go but she didn’t want Bly to always pay for everything. "I wouldn’t be able to come up until Thursday night after work Bly."

"Yes...that’s great!" Bly answered with excitement as she hugged Jordan. "I’ll make the arrangements for your ticket tomorrow. You won’t have to pay for the motel or food because it is all paid for by the company. So, you’ll just need money for souvenirs," Bly explained with a smile before kissing Jordan. "I’m so happy that you’re going to meet me there baby," Bly replied with happiness as she hugged her tightly again.

"I will be there Thursday then," Jordan answered with a smile. "Let me feed this hungry kitty cat while you pack then," Jordan instructed her with a smile and a pat on the butt to get Bly moving.

Jordan watched Bly finish packing her suitcase before she climbed into bed and stripped her clothes off to snuggle her warm body against Jordan’s.

"I take it you’re feeling better?" Jordan answered with a sly grin.

"I always feel a lot better when I’m in your arms," Bly answered as she planted a kiss on Jordan’s soft lips.

"You’re such a smooth talker," Jordan laughed.

"Will you drop me off at the airport in the morning?" Bly asked as she rubbed her hands over Jordan’s soft skin on her back.

"Sure..what time?" Jordan asked as she looked into Bly’s sexy blue eyes.

"I have to be there at 7am. Will that be a problem?"

" will give me plenty of time to drop you off and get home to change for work."

"When you go to the airport on Thursday just park my car there and we will have it for when we return. Thanks for taking me," Bly answered with a kiss.

"I’m going to miss you so much Bly!" Jordan answered as she ran her palm down Bly’s face and slipped her tongue in Bly’s mouth for a wet, passionate, soulful kiss.

Bly ran her hand down Jordan’s firm backside and pulled her body closer as they laid facing one another. Bly deepened the kiss and her passion mounted. She laid on her back bringing Jordan on top of her as they continued to explore each other’s mouths with their tongues.

Jordan broke their kiss..."As much as I want this need to get some sleep," Jordan replied as she kissed Bly again as Bly caressed Jordan’s back with her hands.

"You tease!" Bly joked as she kissed her again.

"Thanks for today. I had a great time with your family but make sure you tell me next time you’re sick. You scared me!" Jordan scolded Bly.

"I promise I will tell you the next time I’m sick. I’m glad you had a great time today and my parents really love you," Bly answered with a smile.

"Aah...that’s so awesome. They are wonderful Bly," Jordan answered with happiness at Bly’s family’s acceptance of her.

"Yeah...they’re okay," Bly teased as she kissed Jordan again. "You feel so good laying naked on me baby," Bly replied as she rested her hand on Jordan’s gluteal fold with her fingers touching damp curls while she captured her lips for a kiss.

Jordan broke their kiss and smiled at Bly. "Now, who’s the tease Bly?" Jordan asked with a smile as she looked into her crystal blue eyes.

"Would you like me to move my hand?" Bly asked with a sexy mischievous smile.

"No...of course, not! ...but you’re going to sleep," Jordan answered with a smile.

"Yes dear!" Bly answered sarcastically as Jordan traced Bly’s lips with her finger while she gazed lovingly into her blue eyes before pressing her tongue against her top lip for a sensual, wet kiss.

"Night babe...I love you," Jordan replied with a smile as she laid her head on Bly’s chest.

"Jordan do you realize how turned on I am right now? How can you kiss me like that and say good night?"

Jordan looked up at Bly. "I’m just as turned on as you but you need to go to sleep so, you won’t be sick tomorrow."

"Aah," Bly sighed with disappointment and sexual frustration. "’re right. Good night Jordan," Bly answered as she wrapped her arms tightly around her lover. "I love you too!" Bly whispered as she kissed Jordan on the head as she thought about how much Jordan excited her with just one kiss or just one look and how she wanted to make mad passionate love to her all night but knew Jordan was right and she needed her rest. ‘Damn Cindy!...ruined another one of our evenings. I definitely need to ruin a few of hers.’ Bly thought to herself as she listened to her lover’s soft breathing and smelled her apple scented hair, placing a kiss on her head before she fell asleep.

Bly woke to the sound of loud music and a warm body pressed snugly against hers. She smiled as she looked at her lover sleeping soundly on her chest and turned the offending blaring music off. Bly slipped out from underneath Jordan and headed in for a shower. She popped a few Advil’s for the lingering headache which was not as severe today before entering the shower.

Bly dressed and put on a pot of coffee before feeding Ares who let her know he was not pleased by the delay with loud meowing. Bly hated to have to wake her peacefully sleeping lover but she had a plane to catch.

Bly sat on the side of the bed and watched her prone naked sexy girlfriend and thought about how much she loved Jordan. She smiled and placed soft kisses along her spine up to her neck as she felt her muscles respond to her lips under her kiss. Bly made her way to her ear and pushed her hair away from her ear.

"Wake up Jordan," Bly whispered with a kiss to her ear. Jordan rolled over and sleepily opened her eyes to greet her smiling lover. "Good morning sexy!" Bly replied with a smile.

Jordan smelled the clean scent of her freshly showered lover. "Hmmm...raspberry lotion today?" Jordan asked as she took in the scent that filled the room while she put her hands on Bly’s hips and looked at Bly lovingly, her hair fell to the front of her shoulders shadowing her face.

"You know your lotions well Jordan," Bly answered with a smile as she slowly leaned down and gave Jordan a morning kiss. "I hated to wake you but we have to get going babe."

Jordan wrapped her hands behind Bly’s neck and pulled her down to her own neck as Bly nibbled on her soft skin. "Are you sure you have to go?" Jordan asked seductively.

"Unfortunately, yes," Bly whispered through her kiss which traveled to Jordan’s mouth and captured her lips with her own.

"Okay...I guess I’ll get up then," Jordan answered as she sat up and hugged Bly. "I’m going to miss you so much honey," Jordan whispered in Bly’s ear.

"I’m going to miss you too!" Bly answered with a kiss to Jordan’s cheek before standing up.

Jordan brushed her teeth and pulled her hair back as Bly loaded her luggage on the elevator. She poured a cup of coffee for Jordan and gave Ares hugs and kisses goodbye as Jordan entered the kitchen.

Bly handed her the cup of coffee. "Thanks...just what I needed," Jordan answered with a smile as she accepted the Java and kissed Bly for the gesture.

"Aah. Jordan I don’t have your phone number or address."

"Oh, that’s right..I’ll give you my business card which has everything on it."

"Okay let’s get going then," Bly answered as they entered the elevator.

"Who takes care of Ares?"

"Jules will come over and feed him for me."

Jordan noticed how incredibly sexy Bly looked in her light perfectly fitting stone washed jeans with a white mock turtleneck shirt covered by a navy blue cotton v-neck shirt, a black belt to accentuate the outfit and black boots. Jordan thought Bly looked like a model who stepped off the advertisement page for the Gap or Old Navy. ‘I wish my clothes fit me as perfectly.’ she thought.

"You look incredibly sexy Bly," Jordan replied as she wrapped her arms around her tall lover’s slender waist for a hug taking in the sweet smell of her cool water perfume.

"Thanks!" Bly answered with a smile as she kissed Jordan.

Bly stopped at her terminal to unload her luggage at the curb. Bly put her bags down and gathered Jordan into her arms for a deep, passionate and very sensual kiss with no regard to any onlookers.

"I love you..see you Thursday night," Bly whispered in her ear.

"I love you Bly," Jordan answered as she looked into her blue eyes memorizing them as she handed Bly her business card. "All my info is on my card and you shouldn’t have a problem getting in touch with me," Jordan informed Bly as she took the card from her. Bly looked into tear filled green eyes as Jordan kissed her again and didn’t want to let her go.

"Bye honey," Bly whispered as she broke her hug after another kiss and grabbed her luggage to check in.

Jordan watched her lover check her bags in as long as she could before the police officer motioned her away from the curb. ‘God, I love that woman.’ Jordan thought to herself with tears streaking her face as she drove off losing site of her tall, dark and gorgeous lover.
