dirty laundry

"I don't know if I can support it." Bex had a to find a way to get out this so called wedding of Nancy's.

"But she wants you to be the matron of honor," Oliver said. Matron seemed to be the only word Bex could hear ,and it made her sick to her stomach. She didn't want anyone seeing her in a bride's maid dress. That was just as bad as asking her to wear a swim suit she thought.

"I just had twins for God's sakes!" She was adamant about that.

"Well, Nancy's pregnant and she'll be in a bride's dress." Oliver told her this over his lunch break from work. There were still plenty of casseroles to finish off at home. At least, she could watch him enjoy them.

"Do you know how awful this is for me?" No one seemed to understand how breast feeding was taking a toll on her. She could see her breasts lactating at such an event. Wouldn't that be lovely?

"It'll be just this afternoon thing. Won't last longer than fifteen minutes. Max said he'd make it short." Oliver reminded her.

"Yeah, but-" The fact remained Nancy looked pretty damn hot to be pregnant. She was all tiny with her little baby bump. It was amazing and disgusting to Bex. She now felt like like Kirstie Alley on the rebound from Jenny Craig. "I'm the size of a house!"

"Jesus! Bex! This is not about you!" Suddenly, Oliver laid down the law. "This is Nancy's wedding. You are her friend and...and she needs all the support she can get at the moment."

"Fine." No use being evil about it, Bex supposed. Best to get on her happy face and just get it over with. She didn't see this marriage lasting til the water got hot. "What about you? Aren't you Dayton's friend?" She hated to bring it up, but wasn't he suppose to be the enemy?

"I told Dayton I'd sit with him," Oliver told her.

"You'd do that." She hugged herself. "He shouldn't even be there."

"Well, it is an unlikely threesome," Oliver nodded finishing off the devil eggs then. "But apparently, I think it'll be fine once it comes out of the wash of it. It'll just need time."

"I can't believe you said that." Bex glared at Oliver.

Oliver just smiled at her.
