"Here you go, Neal." Elizabeth handed Neal his own lunch bag after giving Peter his. "It's just some pate and crackers and a fresh pear."

"Thank you, Elizabeth," Neal said, accepting the bag. "That's very thoughtful of you."

"Enjoy your stakeout!" Elizabeth looked over to see Peter gaping. "What?"

"You gave him pate?" he asked, looking between the two of them, bewildered. "You made me a deviled ham sandwich!"

Elizabeth patted Peter's cheek and gave him a placating smile. "I only had enough pate for one lunch and you honestly like deviled ham, dear. Neal? He's got an actual palate."

"I've brought you tea with honey and lemon." June carried a steaming teacup and saucer over to where Neal was reclining, sick in bed. "It's the best thing for a chest cold."

"You really don't have to do this," Neal protested, accepting the cup before shielding his mouth from another bout of hoarse coughing.

"Someone has to take care of you!" June protested. "And I didn't raise children and grandchildren in this house without learning a thing or two about the common cold."

"You're the best, June"

June winked. "Drink up! I'll be back up later with homemade chicken soup."

The postcard was marked Buenos Aires, Argentina: Sara.

'Junior,

Found some friends of friends down here. Can't wait to tell you all about them.

Tell Peter to put out the good china and have the Seven over for dinner when I get back so I only have to tell my story once. It's quite the tale.

BTW I found us another boat! I emailed Peter the info so he can check it out for us.

This was an expensive trip. You now owe me one and a half. /winks/

-The Missus'

Neal huffed out a chuckle. "Thank you, Mrs. Wellington..."

Confession
I confess that Wives Three isn't a great title, but the longer versions (Wives 3, Neal 0 and Wives 3, Husbands 0) were worse. ;-)

Thanks,

Emma DeMarais

Re: Confession
But Neal has a husband too! Or at least a dom. *wink* Seriously, this is like three truffles in a jewelbox.

:-) This is cute. Neal really does have three wives. I really liked the one with Elizabeth.
