BETA: Once again I'd like to thank my beta Dru for all the help she's given me. One other quick thank you should go out to the person who reminded me about this series, Nichole W. Thanks for the kick in the butt.

"I don't know about you but I need a drink," I stated as we entered our place after getting back from Will's place.
"Don't you think it's a little early?" B countered as I headed in to the kitchen to get at my secret stash.
True, it was dawn. We just now got back after falling asleep in Red's bed, with our clothes on. Pervs. That mental image isn't helping me right now. It felt peaceful being with B and Red, lying in her bed, me holding Red with B's head in her lap. That plus the revelation that Red LOVES us just has me on edge still.
"Faith," B said from her stool at the island, "I need your head clear right now. We need to talk about what we're going to do about Willow."
"Just as soon as you say what I know you're dying to say," I replied deciding to start some coffee since this could take all day.
"What's that?" B asked curiously.
"Come on, B," I said in an annoyed tone, "You know you're dying to say 'I told you so'."
B started laughing hysterically as I poured us each a mug of the just brewed coffee, putting in two spoons of sugar in B's along with some cream. I held it back and narrowed my eyes at her, waiting for her to explain her outburst before handing her her mug.
"True, she admitted she's in love with you," B began to explain laughing softer, "But she also admitted to being in love with me also, hence me not saying 'I told you so'."
Okay, so she has a point. The question is what are we going to do about it? Cincy is just starting to get okay with the whole gay couple scene; a three-way couple might be a little too much for people to take. Not to mention the Scoobies. They're all onboard with getting rid of Ken. We go in and tell them this who knows how they'd react.
"I do care about her," I stated softly and honestly, "She's done so much for you, for me. I love her but never thought."
"Oh please," B interrupted knowingly, "I bet you were watching her butt all through high school."
"Hers wasn't the only one I was watching," I replied with a wiggle of the brows, "Okay Red is a hot little thing that I may have thought about, but that's all."
"I knew," B whispered.
"You what?" I asked in disbelief.
"I knew about the crush she had on me," B explained softly, looking up at me with warm eyes, "She was the first real friend I made when I arrived. She has stuck by me through everything, Faith, and I love her for that. Of course I knew she had feelings for me, I just never really thought about it before."
"I need to sit down," I said and made my way over to the couch, B following right behind me.
I sat down on the couch and B joined me, resting her head on my shoulder. We sat there in silence, both of us thinking about what to do. I still had no clue. I only remember Tara from the time I was in B's body and still feel bad about the things I said and can't take back. I also hit her while I was working with the mayor. I hit Red and she still loves me, which isn't that surprising. Look at B and me.
"B," I breathed softly, "I hope you have an idea of what we should do. I keep drawing a blank."
"I know Willow said she would respect and go along with any decision we make," B replied in a far away tone, "But, I still don't want to hurt her. I I don't know what to do, Faith."
"You've never thought about her that way? Not once, not even for a second," I asked seriously.
"Well," B answered worriedly.
"B, I'm not going to get mad," I tell her honestly.
"Maybe I wondered about how it'd be," B answered, "Through out all the crazy twists and turns my life has taken, she's been there. You've been the only woman I've been with, Faith."
"I know, B," I said with a laugh, "You had no idea what to do our first night together. It was like being with a virgin."
"Hey," B said in an agitated tone, "Technically I was but I seem to recall no complaints. In fact, I remember someone screaming, 'Oh god, baby! Right there! Harder! You're the best! Holy Shit! I'm Cumming'!"
I laughed out loud as I pulled her in and kissed the side of her head. I love this cute blonde. She's the best thing that's ever happened to me. So is Willow. I don't know what I'd do without either of them. I need them.
"B, don't laugh," I say sternly, "But I think I have an idea."
B's face was straining and I knew she wanted to laugh. I stared pointedly at her and waited to see what she'd do. B cleared her throat and looked apologetic as I smiled gratefully and told her my idea.
"Hey, Red," I greeted with a warm smile as she came in to the kitchen to visit me.
I told B my idea and she had to admit it was a good one. I just didn't tell her where I got it. If she knew, I'd either be dead or never hearing the end of it and neither of those choices worked for me. We called Red up and invited her over for dinner so we could fill her in on our decision.
"When do I get to hear your big idea?" Red asked with an amused grin.
"I know it's amusing as hell and everything but if you and the blonde keep it up," I answered in mock anger.
"Sorry, sorry," Will interrupted with a laugh, "It's just, your action girl not plan girl."
"This isn't a plan, it's an idea and I do get those every now and then," I said defensively.
"So when do I get to hear this idea?" Red asked again, a bit impatient and whole lot excited.
I think she's been waiting by the phone since we left her place, waiting for our response to her little bombshell. Can't say I blame her. I just hope she's okay with the decision we've come to.
"Go sit with B and I'll tell you," I conceded as I finished drying the plate in my hand.
Red went and sat with B who was smiling contently like the princess she thinks she is and I sometimes treat her as. I cooked and now am doing the dishes and all she's had to do is sit there and look pretty. She's lucky I love her or else she'd be doing the dishes.
"Okay," I begin, drying my hands and making my way over to stand in front of the couch, "You know we love you and would never do anything to hurt you."
"You don't want to see me anymore," Will said frantically.
"What?!" B shouted in disbelief, "Of course not!"
"She interrupts again stick something in her mouth," I say to B with a smirk, "Red, we love you and want to keep you."
Red was about to say something but shut her mouth quickly as I moved to kneel in front of her and continued softly, "I came up with the idea and B thinks it works, of course we'll have to explain all this to the others but we're sure they'll come around."
"Will you spit it out already?" Will interrupted anxiously.
B took the sides of her face and brought her around till they were face to face and kissed her. It wasn't a friendly kiss either. It was a heated kiss that shocked and surprised Red for all of ten seconds before she closed her eyes and kissed B back. I'm not jealous. In fact I'm getting excited. B and me knew this would happen and we thought we were prepared and we are, since I'm not breaking them up.
"Can I continue?" I ask after clearing my throat.
B and Red broke apart. Red's eyes were still closed as B looked at me with a blushing smile.
"You told me to stick something in her mouth if she interrupted again," B explained.
"I meant a hand or a sock," I replied grinning, "Not your tongue."
"No tongue," Will breathed, "Just lips."
"Still worked," B replied smugly.
"Do you need more of an explanation?" I asked running a hand through Red's hair to get her attention.
"Yes please," Will replied softly.
"You're going to be our girlfriend too," I explained calmly, "The three of us. I know what you're thinking and it's not bigamy, that only applies in marriage and we'll deal with that when the time comes."
I winked at B and smiled at Will as I asked, "What do you think?"
"So we'll be together, the three of us," Will said shakily, "You both aren't going to get angry or jealous if things get physical."
"You were just kissed by B and I didn't floor you," I replied with a laugh.
"What if I kiss you?" Red asked cockily.
"Try it and find out," I countered.
Red moved in close, her lips brushing against mine. This is the real test, how B will react to Red kissing me. B looked on as our lips touched and I had to admit, Willow is a good kisser, the right amount of pressure, the hint of tongue. She's good, but B's better.
"Wow," B exclaimed, "That's actually kind of hot."
"I agree," I said softly as Red pulled back.
"But what about the others?" Will asked worriedly.
"One step at a time, Red," I declared moving to sit next to B on the couch, "Right now lets just sit back and relax."
"Sounds good," B said snuggling in to my side as I wrapped an arm around her.
Red looked skeptical for a moment but once I opened my other arm she leaned in to me. I kissed the side of her head then B's then relaxed with my two girls in my arms.
Okay, I'll let you in on where I got the idea from if you promise not to tell B. You know that porn star Evan Stone; I heard this rumor that he and his wife have a girlfriend. I don't know if we'd ever get that far but they all get along and I figured me, B, and Red will be fine; once we got passed the whole kissing thing. And we did. We still have to iron out a few details but I have faith, stupid joke I know, that this will only bring us closer.
