back home

"I look like shit," Sasha said. She felt so out of it. She didn't even want to see how bad she looked in the mirror.

Everything was so slow and there was a while in the hospital she was afraid she'd never walk, but she did in a few hours. They had told her, "You have to keep moving and you'll be all right."

Naturally, Rhys was holding the baby. It was so unlike him. She still couldn't get over the shock.

"Nonsense, you look lovely." He told her helping her get up the stairs to their room. He'd promised them at the hospital she'd get right to bed and to be waited on, constantly. Of course, Sasha wasn't so sure about that. She could see him running off to the pub any second. But he'd barely let anyone even breath on the baby. Jamie wanted a look. So did Maxie and Katy. They all said she looked just like Sasha.

"I can't see Rhys at all in her." Jamie shrugged.

"What's that suppose to mean?" She gave him a hard look.

"Nothing," he shook his head. "Nothing at all. She's beautiful." Jamie didn't stick around to talk about his thoughts on her baby daughter.

At least Rhys hadn't paid him a bit of mind. He was so busy with the baby, she wondered if he was going to let the baby nurse.

"You're sure you're up for that?" He looked at Sasha once she was settled in bed.

"Yes, of course." They'd been through this at the hospital. She was breast feeding. How many times did they have to go over this.

"Then I'll watch." He was all smiles.

She wanted to tell him to go away, but she didn't. Really, it was all clumsy and awkward.

"Now don't you let her use you as a pacifier," Rhys smirked. "And you're still all right with the name Risa?"

"Yes, we've decided." She looked at him. "Risa."

Sasha's cell rang. It was Lauren.
