"Oh my god, this is so cute, "Sharon squealed, picking up a onesie with a bear face on it. "Look at this. This is perfect for you, Elena." Elena, who was looking at cribs and almost losing consciousness every time she saw the price, looked up and smiled. That is definitely adorable. "There's even different colors and bears. You have to get this."

"Slow down, Share, "April said with a laugh. "She's just started looking at this stuff. Let her slowly make her way to the clothes."

"Fine, "Sharon responded with a pout. Putting down the onesies, she slowly walked over to April and Elena. They were both looking at the furnitures and fixtures needed for their new nurseries. From what April was saying, it was clear she was leaps and bounds ahead in her nursery setup. Elena was still far from where she was. So much so that it had just hit her she had just realised that she needed to get the nursery ready fast.

"Why have you not looked at this stuff before?"Sharon asked as the three of them walked around the cribs area. Elena didn't really have much of an answer. Even she was struggling to find a reason. After gushing over a particularly cute display, she looked intently at Elena. It was clear she wasn't going to drop the question. "Let me tell you, I didn't even have to leave the house to look. Cameron was the one who began buying the stuff with Derrick. Like the very next day after we went for the ultrascan. He was lucky I was still suffering from morning sickness or everything would've gone in the bonfire I was planning."

"Don't lie. You loved it, "April said drily while Elena went, "Sharon."

Elena and April's polar reactions caused Sharon to burst out laughing. Looking at each other, the two of them joined her.

"Jason wasn't that bad, "April shared as they moved to the toys section. "He was more concerned by my health, since this was right after the shooting, you know. So he was on my case about eating the medicines and supplements. Then there was the move. And the renovations. Then the trial. It was such a hectic time. But, now that things have settled considerably, I can see him acting like Cameron. Every time he comes back, there's always something new with him. Either for the twins or me or this little one." Watching April patting her small bump, Elena's hand reflexively went to her own bigger bump.

She was glad that April was able to speak about that time in her life with ease. From what Harry had told her, Jason's money-hungry mother had been infiltrating Jason's company in the hopes of gaining profitable information. But everything began to unravel when Jason received custody of the twins, whom he had never known about. Then April came into his life, making his mother lose control of the situation. She had been so obsessed with money that she entered the confrontation with a gun. Unfortunately, April had been caught in the crossfire and was hit with a ricochet. And during the hospital stay, it was revealed that she was pregnant.

Elena could understand why Jason had been more concerned with April's recovery. It had even alarmed her when she found out. Luckily, their daughter was healthy and growing safely in her. They had shared and gushed over their ultrasound pictures earlier. Elena still couldn't how much they are growing. They had hands and fingers even after mooning them again, much to her chagrin. April's ultrasound had a delicate air around her. Maybe it was because Elena wasn't feeling her movements at all hours of the day, she thought wryly, rubbing at a particularly active spot.

"So tell the truth, "April said when they exited the shop. "Why did you really want to come to Vegas?" Thinking that she was speaking to her, Elena looked up at her and noticed that her eyes were on Sharon. Intrigued, she also looked at their visibly flustered friend.

"W-what are you saying? Elena sounded like she needed help so I came. Is that wrong?"Sharon blustered, looking anywhere but at them. Which was difficult since she was walking right between them. Their eyes connecting, April and Elena knew there was more to the story.

"That doesn't sound convincing, "Elena drawled, twining her arms around Sharon's.

"Yeah. Wasn't it you who was adamant about joining Elena and Harry on whatever they're involved in? Now that I think about it, you didn't even let us talk when you steamrolled us into this, "April said speculatively, trying hard to suppress her smile. "You even steamrolled Cameron, which I hear is hard to do. What is in Vegas that you needed to come here?"

"Can't I j

ust want to have holiday?"she murmured. Hearing a discordant note in her voice, April and Elena stopped, forcing her to stop as well. It was a sour, dark note of desperation that didn't fit her previously perceived vivaciousness. Her eyes were barely holding in her tears and her skin had become an ashy hue. Taking a hold of her hands each, they silently led her to a nearby cafe.

Just as she was about to enter, someone caught Elena's eyes. Her body automatically turned but the man was swallowed by the crowd. But even as she tried to brush this off, she couldn't help but question.

Was that Harry?

---------@@@@@@------------

Feeling the tension between his shoulders, Harry couldn't help but to force his shoulders to relax. But his nerves wouldn't calm down. His eyes were darting everywhere and jumped at every shadow. His chest felt like something was constricting it and breathing was becoming much harder.

"Hey, is everything alright?"Elena asked from beside him. Even knowing that she was there, his muscles couldn't help but twitch. Get a hold of yourself.

"Everything's fine, "he told her, smiling down at her. That was when his brain and eyes connected.. Blinking, he finally saw his surroundings and the accompanied noise of the hustle and bustle of a restaurant. There was a sudden jolt of confusion where his eyes, ears and brain tries to sync together.

"Are you sure? You look a bit pale, "she insisted, her hand coming up to cover his hand. He had to smile as her other hand continued to bring food to her mouth. Noticing his smile, she frowned even as she chewed. "What?"

"Nothing. There's just something on my mind." A puzzle he was not any closer to solving. Having spent the entire afternoon in the room while the women went out shopping, he had delved into the information on the flash drive further. Jason had joined him after settling his own work.

Apparently, Cameron and he had been whisked to Vegas on the whims of their women. That meant that there was still some loose ends. Which alleviated a rock in his head. As much as he appreciated them being there, he'd hate it if this brought about more trouble on their end.

But even with Jason's help, they were no closer to finding that thing that would tie all the information together. It was as if everything was linked, every company, every number, every action. He felt there was a purposefulness but, even after sharing this intuition with Jason, they weren't able to see anything.

But this was something he had never done before. He had always used his head his entire life. There was a rational reason for every move. In work and play. They might not be the most heartwarming reasons but there was a universally-accepted, rational reason. But this time, like his night with Elena, his every move was dictated by some unknown, never-before-felt emotion and drive. Instinct and intuition. Something he had never relied on before.

There was no reason to even believe this hunch was true. It was a baseless feeling, with no data, empirical or otherwise. He should be looking at the data with clinical eyes but there was shaking off this feeling. It was clinging onto him worse than some of his ex-girlfriends. Even now, while they were all having dinner, he was antsy to head back and go over the information again.

Holding in a sigh, he shook his head and began eating. Luckily, the women were there to distract Elena. Otherwise, she would know that something was eating at him. He had a close call earlier but her hunger had gotten the better of her and she'd tried to steal something on April's plate.

Smiling at the rate the two pregnant women were downing their huge order, a sense of contentedness filled him. It even calmed the crawling feeling in his blood, allowing him to enjoy this rare time they got together. He was glad that Elena was getting along with his cousins and their women. They were the closest family he had and it would have made it difficult if there was any friction.

Movement from his peripheral made him look at Cameron and his wife. That was when he noticed the tension between them. Cameron wasn't hiding it with his sullen expression but Sharon was trying to laugh it off. It wasn't working because they could all see the dull look in her eyes.

Had their fight been serious?

Harry was shocked. The two of them was the most stable couple among them. What happened to make them look on the verge of breaking?

Suddenly, Cameron shot to his feet and stormed out. Silence reigned only to be broken by Sharon's sobs.
