Well, they had more than a spot of tea for Rupert when he took baby Crystal to work. It seemed it had got around about the baby.... so the old queens got together to give him a baby shower. Really, it was the last thing Rupert expected.
"I just wanted you to know why I'd be out a couple of weeks." He was all smiles. They had lavished tea cakes an prezzies, all around. They wanted to make sure he treated Crystal like a princess. It was quite lovely. All pink and purple sets of clothes, a tutu for her as well, and her first tiara for her little onion head.
"And where is that man of yours?" Not one but a couple had to ask Rupert every few minutes. They'd expected he'd make an arrival with Rupert and baby.
"Oh, work, of course." Rupert tried not to make much of it. One of them did have to make a living at the moment.
"You sure, you haven't forgiven him for giving you such an undertaking?" Tess, the one who always won the weekly competitions, when it came to crossdressing and such. "How dare he even think of doing something so vain and horrible? And you coming in, to pick up the pieces. You must really love him."
Rupert tried to keep his smile. On second thought, it might have been wise that Soren hadn't come. Rupert bit his bottom lip, wondering just how to get out of this, gracefully.
"Really, it was not his fault. She drugged him, you know. Well, the mother of the child told me she was just doing us a favor. And well, Soren wasn't exactly cooperating, as it was, and well..really, really he loves me and so, there are no hard feelings."
Naturally, he was showered with silliness after the second to the last word he said. Hopefully, no one would try to beat Soren up for this digression. As it was, really it was a blessing. He kept reminding each and everyone, that it truly was.
