"And we thought Nuala would be the weak link!" Ellen scoffed. "You can't back out now, Enya. And you wouldn't want him as an enemy..."
Enya's shoulder's sagged under the weight of her deception. "I know..." she agreed softly. "I should go update him..."
Back at home...
Breandan woke alone, as well, but heard the water coming from the other room.
With a grin, he dropped his shorts and helped her reach all those hard to reach places...
Ellen sauntered into Enya's bedroom just as Kearney had stepped from his shower. "What are you doing in here?" he asked.
Ellen smiled coyly as she walked closer, only stopping when she almost touched him. "I just thought you'd want to know that Enya had a meeting this morning. You just missed her."
Kearney took a small step back, putting more space between him and Enya's flirtatious roommate. "Thank you for letting me know," he said, nodding towards the door. "I should probably get ready for work, as well."
Ellen didn't budge, just gazed at him steadily, making Kearney even more uncomfortable. He motioned towards the door, "If I could have a moment alone."
She pouted, shooting him a sultry look. "Alright, if you're so shy, I'll leave!" she teased.
Kearney didn't think he'd ever rushed so quickly to get ready for work. The sooner he left Enya's house, the better! He was determined to never be alone with Ellen again!
Breandan frowned. "Why can't you?"
Mackenzie made a face. "It's yucky! Isn't it Violet?"
The precocious toddler made a scowl, imitating her mother and announced, "Yucky!"
Violet shook her head and scrunched her nose up. "Yucky!"
Shannon's face paled with twin peaks of color flashing on her cheeks. "Oh?!" she asked nervously, "Nothing was wrong!" She wasn't going to embarrass herself by admitting that she'd hated seeing him with a date!
Kearney sighed with relief. "Oh good. Enya had thought you were upset with me!"
His face immediately lit up. "Enya!" he said huskily in greeting. "I was hoping I'd hear from you tonight." He paused as the woman on the other line responded. "Yes, I'll be right over!"
Kearney snapped the phone shut. "Sorry Shannon, I've gotta get going!"

*AN - Mackenzie and the kids were exhausted all day! I'm surprised she remembered to eat!
That morning, Mac & Breandan both woke up and rolled wishes to have a baby. Whewie! Brave parents! They're definitely working their way to being surrounded by family by popping all those babies out!
And at the end of work, Kearney rolled a wish to talk to Shannon and woohoo with Enya at the same time! Make up your mind! It seems he's not quiet willing to give up on Shannon. My daughter and I are team-Shannon! We're hoping Shannon pulls it together and asks him out already!
