.............. I don’t know what happened but the next two weeks flew by too fast  for anyone’s liking. Gramps had tried to explain that it was just one of those crazy times and that everything was going to be okay resulting in me losing it with him and then getting yelled at by my Grandma while Flynn sniggered at me like a little kid. We’d  had to say our goodbyes in a hanger on a day where we all knew the flights would be grounded because of the huge Winter storm that was rolling in. The guys had been gone a week and Riley and I were actually having a blast between working and decorating the houses for Christmas.
“Hey B”
“I’m in the kitchen” I yelled as I heard Riley’s voice it was Christmas eve
“I got the movies and the gifts and some yummy food” she laughed putting down the bags on the counter top. “Smeels good in here”
‘I’ve been making soup” I sighed “But I feel like crap”
“You look like it as well” she wrinkled her nose
“I think I’ve been doing too much”
“Well you took a flight to New York and went to Dallas right from there before coming home and all in less than 30 hours and did you get any sleep after getting home?”
“No” I hung my head “And damn you sound like my Mom” I walked over to the fridge and took out a soda and threw it to her “I’m going to go have a hot shower and then we can eat curl up on the couch and watch chick flicks”
“Oh I love the sound of that” she chuckled “Take some pain killers as well see if it helps you” I nodded and walked to the bathroom.
 I let the water run till the room filled up with steam I stripped out of my clothes and looked in the mirror I smiled at the New Tattoo I’d gotten while I was in Dallas A J and a B entwined on my hip. I felt a pain in my stomach and groaned damn period pains… looks like all the fun J.J. and I had had when we were on our honey moon was just that. I felt something run down my leg and looked down to see blood pooling at my feet. Fear was the first thing that gripped me I’d had some heavy periods in my life but this was bizarre. I grabbed a towel and cleared up the mess before stepping into the hot water and sitting down in the bottom of the tub pains kept shooting through my stomach. I took deep breaths letting them sub side no wonder I’d been eating so much chocolate I was getting such a bad period. I sorted myself out and dressed in some of J.J.’s sweats and walked out to Riley who was on the phone and grinning from ear to ear.
“No she’s finally got out of the shower” she looked at me “Really she doesn’t’ look so hot so it’s justified but she’s worked too hard since you guys left” She shook her head obviously Flynn was on the other end of the phone
“Hey tell him I have Aunt Flo visiting” I called over my shoulder as I walked into the kitchen and ladled out two bowls of soup
“He said Ew… Gross and he’s worked that out” She hollered back. I smiled as I reached for spoon
“Tell him I love him and Merry Christmas” I picked up the soup and headed back to the living room having to stop to take some deep breathes as I ached again.
“He said he loves you too and J.J. will be calling after he gets out of the shower” I put a bowl on the table in front of here and curled up on the other end of the couch pulling my Marine Corps blanket over me and flicking through the channels while Riley finished her conversation. She hung up and leant over to me and put her hand on my forehead. “Damn B you’re hot”
‘Thanks” I smiled weakly the soup hitting my stomach felt like it was about to rebound.
“Where’s the thermometer?”
In the bathroom cabinet… but I’m fine I just had a hot shower and now I’m eating hot soup” I groaned as she got up and walked to the bathroom “Ry don’t” she came back and shoved it in my ear “Damn it” I moved away “I’m fine”
“That’s not what Flynn said” she chastised me
“Riley I’m stressed my husband’s away I have 3 deadlines before the end of the year and now to cap it all off I’m not pregnant” I fought with the tears “Forgive me for not feeling to good” I got up and walked to my room and closed the door I crawled into my bed my phone in my hand and waited for it to ring………………….
