They didn't come straight back to the apartment after sending Bronwyn and Payback home. It just seemed like it'd be way too empty.

But there's only so much grocery shopping and other off-putting you can do before you have to go back to the place where you usually do stuff like, oh, sleep.

Xander hangs his jacket up and turns the light on as they come in.

He was right. It is way too empty.

[For just one of the B-word-people, woe. SP for great justice.]

Bridge has been unusually quiet since they saw Bronwyn off, but now that they're inside, he speaks up.

"We need to talk," he says seriously.

"I'm pretty sure that was sarcasm there," Bridge says. "But, uh. Anyway. It's about Bronwyn. I sort of... found something out, earlier today."

"Nothing bad!" Bridge hastens to add. "I promise."

"It's just- okay, remember how she came back right after she left, and how she had Notzilla and Tedgiraffe?" Bridge says, making his way in to the kitchen.

"Well, we were visiting Z this afternoon, and Bronwyn was telling her the story about how she was um, you know. Made?" Bridge frowns, not entirely sure that's the right word to use there. "Only she told it a little different than she did the first time we heard it. This time, Z was the one who did the... hard part."

"Does the actual giving-birth thing. For us."

"I told you she told it different!"

"I think we must've," Bridge says. "Because, I mean. It makes a certain amount of sense. It was Cal before, right, only Cal is... I don't think she's in a place right now where it'd be a good idea to ask her to do something that huge for us. And maybe she still isn't- won't be- a few years down the road."

"Me too," Bridge admits glumly, absently pulling things at random out of the grocery bags.

"Pretty much the kind of person I want to avoid being, strangely enough."

"She *seemed* the same, didn't she? I mean, with the bouncing, and the non-stop talking, and..." Bridge trails off, frowning slightly.

"Yeah," Bridge says, moving over to where Xander's standing, needing to be *closer*. "I wonder if that other me- if things had changed for him too. Or if his Bronwyn was still- I don't even know. This *is* confusing."

"We won't," Bridge tries to sound confident, one hand tentatively reaching out to cover Xander's. "I mean, things changed already, right? And she still happened. That's got to be a good sign."
