".... Yeah. I am." She nodded, feeling a weight lifted a little off her shoulders - saying it was easier than she'd expected. "Think it's why I like cuddling these two hellraisers so much. I didn't think I had a maternal bone in my body, but... I guess your body adapts when it has to." She smiled slightly, crossing the room to lay Mark down at last, then repeating the action and taking Morgan from Alcuin, and laying him down as well. She looked at them both, fast asleep at last, and she went back over to Alcuin, taking his hand.
"You don't have to call me 'miss' all the time. It's Allison. So long as I'm allowed to call you by your name?" She smiled at him, squeezing his hand slightly. "And I'm sorry. For making you feel left out at all, for being a bitch to you... It wasn't fair. Isn't fair. Scott deserves to be happy, and so does Derek. And this way... We all win, I guess."
