the lounge (what were you thinking?)

After the little confrontation the four of them had outside Addison's office, she escorted Mark to the doctor's lounge so they could talk in private as he iced his hand. There was enough going around about them by now and they really didn't need anymore unnecessary drama, not that they didn't have a knack for creating some anyway. Really, if the hospital didn't have her life to gossip about, she was sure that something would come crumbling down because they never seemed to have anything else to talk about. She was sick of it, but she would deal.

Sitting Mark down in one of the chairs, she placed the ice pack onto his knuckles and went to sit herself down in the empty chair next to him. She sighed and looked at him, raising and eyebrow as she crossed her arms in front of her.

Where was she supposed to start? How was she supposed to approach this? Addison couldn't be completely mad at him because he was listening to the advice she'd given him which was to treat Juliet as he would one of the Shepherd girls. But he also could have handled the situation much better. Hitting Derek wasn't the only option and it certainly wasn't the best one. This only made her life more complicated that it already was.

Addison was trying to be friends with Derek, trying to get the friendship they'd developed long before they became Addison and Derek, the couple. They were doing pretty well, but this was sure to hinder things a bit. She couldn't have her boyfriend and father of her child hitting Derek if they were going to get as close as they were before. Things just didn't work that way.

"What in the world were you thinking?" she finally asked him with a sigh.

Mark looked down at the ice pack resting across his knuckles. He was attempting to avoid Addison's prying gaze. Talking first was not on his agenda because he was a little afraid how she was going to react. When she'd first found them in the hallway, she'd been completely pissed. Addison wasn't one to get mad at any regularity, but she was scary when she did. In the past, Derek had received the brunt of her anger if she was mad at the two of them, but Mark didn't have that luxury now.

He looked up at her once she spoke. The anger was still there, but she was also expectantly waiting for an answer. And Mark honestly wasn't sure what to tell her. He knew why he'd hit Derek, and he would do it again. But explaining it to Addison wasn't the same thing. She wouldn't see it the same way.

"He hurt you for years, Addison, and I didn't do a damn thing," He finally told her firmly, not allowing remorse to creep into his voice.

"You're still hurting because of what he did. How can you defend him?"
Addison narrowed her eyes at Mark and tried to sort this out. Before, she had believed that his actions were a result of brotherly protectiveness over his younger sister, but now this seemed to be about her. He'd hit Derek because of her, because she was still hurting. It was endearing, but she didn't need to be the center of all of their problems.

"I'm not defending him," she quickly retorted after a moment. She wasn't too sure if it was defending him for what he'd done to her or if this was something about Juliet. Either way, it didn't matter, but she needed to pick one subject to focus on.

"Whatever's going on with him and Juliet, I don't know, and I don't really like it. But Juliet is a big girl and can take care of herself. She doesn't need you being overprotective, and no one needs one of the country's top plastic surgeons punching people out in the middle of a hall."

Sighing, Addison reached over and lifted the ice pack from his hand slightly, checking his injury before lifting her gaze up to his eyes. Right now, all she found there was a bit of anger and she didn't know what to do. They were doing so well with talking about their futures with the baby. And now everything seemed to be the opposite of that.

Mark instinctively tried to make his smile as reassuring as possible when she quietly agreed to come with him and crossed the room. He couldn't quite judge what Addison was thinking or feeling. She didn't look terribly upset, but it was difficult to judge. He knew that her mood would definitely take a hit when they had to walk past the hospital's prying eyes.

"Then let's go," He reached out and took her hand in his as soon as she was in reach, and he turned, leading her into the hallway.
Addison squeezed his hand gently and stepped out into the hall with him. Turning around, she pulled her office door to a shut and looked over at Mark for a moment before beginning to make her way down the hall with Mark by herside.

It didn't take long before she could feel eyes watching their every move as they walked down the corridors of the hospital. She sighed and kept on walking, gripping onto Mark's hand slightly tighter. This was something she should be used to by now, and most of the time she could ignore it, but lately, things seemed to keep piling up higher and higher.

Mark smiled at the prospect of their baby actually moving inside her. Of course, he was a little jealous that she would be able to feel it long before he would. Addison had a bond with their child Mark didn't have, but he knew it would only serve to make her a better mother.

"When will I be able to feel him?" He absently ran his hand across her stomach as he shifted the car into park.
Addison smiled and placed her hand on top of his, rubbing it gently. She couldn't wait to feel the baby start moving, and was looking forward to when Mark would be able to even moreso. The experience, she knew, was going to be amazing. This was going to be their first child and there were so many wonderful things in store.

"You'll be able to feel Pickle move about a month or two after I can start to feel the light flutters," she replied with a grin.

Mark chuckled softly, wrapping one arm around Addison's waist as she snuggled up to him. He could feel her relax into him, breathing deeply. With a smile, he turned his head to press a soft kiss to the corner of her mouth.

"I don't mind, Addie," He told her softly, "If you want ice cream I'll go out and get it."
Addison shook her head slowly, shifting and scooting back to sit behind him, her legs hanging over the edge of the bed on either side of him. She wrapped her arms around his midsection and rested her head on his shoulder again.

"It's okay. I'm not craving it all that much," she said quietly before smiling softly. "I'll wait till the most inconvenient time at two in the morning to really crave for it."

She laughed a little and hugged him tighter. Spending time with him was much more important to her right now. She didn't see the point in having the both of them going out after having just gotten back, so she'd rather go without it and stay here with Mark.

It didn't take much of Addison's increased pace and oral teasing at the sensitive skin on his neck for Mark to feel himself pushing dangerously close to the edge. With a low groan, he encircled his fingers around her wrist, pulling it away and pinning it against the mattress above her head.

Shifting so he could look into her eyes, Mark shook his head, "No teasing, Addison."
"You're really one to talk," Addison breathed before she leaned her head forward slightly and took his lower lip between her teeth, biting down. She snaked her tongue out and ran it along his lips gently, teasing him further.

Suddenly, she wrapped her legs around him and pulled his body closer, her hips grinding hard against his. She smirked and covered his lips completely with hers, moaning softly into his mouth while she tried to wriggle her wrist free of his grasp.

Mark grinned, shifting to press a kiss to her forehead as his fingers still continued trailing along the small bump on her stomach. He couldn't help but marvel at how content she appeared to be. It seemed like another lifetime that he'd honestly seen Addison happy and content with her life, but Addison just looked so happy. And they were having a baby, which was so unlike him that it was completely terrifying, but he also liked the idea.

After a few moments of just watching her lay there, he wondered softly, "Did sleep overtake your desire for food?"
Addison opened her eyes and glared at him for a moment. "No, resting my eyes overtook the urge to nag you about getting me my grilled cheese," she said in a serious tone. Her hand went to his side and she gave him a nudge in the ribs before smirking slightly.

She was really glad that she was doing this with him; starting over and creating a family. A year ago, she would have never thought she'd end up here. Heck, when he arrived in Seattle, she hadn't wanted him here. They'd come so far since then and she wouldn't change anything if she could help it. Being loved after all this time felt amazing. Having the prospect of starting a real family was wonderful and scary at the same time. So much more lay ahead of them, and Addison knew that everything would be okay as long as they loved each other.

Mark nodded, taking a large bite out of the sandwich. He kept his attention mostly fixated on his plate.

They were doing this. They were officially starting a life together. Mark and Addison were taking a step to make themselves an even more permanent thing. It was something they had to do soon, too. Addison didn't need the stress of moving the closer she edged to her due date, and, though they weren't encroaching on it by any means, it would easily come up on them quicker than expected if they didn't watch out.

"Are we going to find an apartment near the hospital? Or a house?" He wondered after he'd almost completely finished his sandwich.
Addison swallowed the bite of grilled cheese that'd been in her mouth and turned to Mark. She wasn't quite sure what to say at the moment. She had an idea of what she wanted, but she didn't know how Mark would feel about certain things.

It all depended on how serious they were going to make things and how long they wanted or thought things would last. A house was, of course, the more permanent setting. Getting a house would be it, the greatest symbol of commitment there was other than maybe marriage. It would be the ideal place to raise a child and start a family, and it was something Addison really wanted. But she also knew that they were only finally coming to terms with this and she didn't want to do or suggest anything that would jeopardize what they'd accomplished thus far.

"Um, I don't know," she said quietly. "What do you want?" Taking her gaze away from him, she took another bite of her sandwich and ate quietly.

Mark smiled, "Excuse me for trying to cater to the pregnant lady's many demands."

He used one hand to pull her even tighter against his body, relishing in the feeling of their skin touching. His other hand brushed across the bump on her stomach, silently considering what was really underneath his hand. A baby, an addition to their own little Mark and Addison corner of the world. Someone he would have to dote on and care for, and he was actually surprised to realize that his smile was growing even more.
Addison smiled, putting her hand on top of his and letting her fingers stroke the back of his hand lightly. Closing her eyes, she concentrated on just this. Right now, nothing else existed. It was just her and Mark and their baby. There were no cravings. There was no work, no rumors, no people. It was just them, the way it should be.

Soon, she realized she hadn't said anything for quite some time. Stirring slightly, Addison cleared her throat. "In that case, do you want to get me some now? Since you're being such a gentleman and all," she said, lifting her head from his shoulder to look up into his face.

Mark's grin grew as she trailed her hand further up on his leg and gave her response. When he stopped the car at a red light, Mark took his chance to slide his fingers slowly up the inside of her open thighs. He leaned over and took Addison's earlobe between his teeth, nipping softly.

"Grilled cheese I can do," He agreed, his lips still near her ear, "But I'm better at the sex. After all, that's what I'm good for."
Addison slid her hand as far up his leg as it could go, barely touching him where she knew he would usually want it. She turned her head to face him and brought her other hand to his cheek to hold him there. Leaning in, she kissed him passionately, pulling him deeper into the kiss as their tongues collided.

She pulled away slowly, her teeth scraping along his lower lip. "That is true," she said deeply.

Mark grinned, drifting his eyes down momentarily to watch her hand moving along his leg, and shook his head, "I think I'm going to need more of an answer than that, Addie."
Addison smirked and shook her head, running her teeth along her lower lip briefly. "And I think you're just going to have to wait and see." She slowed down her ministrations on his leg, absently resting her hand at the top of his thigh and turning back to look at the road.

Mark grinned, opening his mouth and sliding it across the spoon. He swallowed the ice cream and brushed his lips across hers briefly.

"I'm glad we're doing this," He mused, dropping his spoon into the tub of ice cream so his hand was free. He urged the bottom of her shirt from her skirt, allowing him to place his hand on th small bump of her abdomen.
Addison smiled and looked down at his hand underneath her shirt, basking in the feeling of his skin against hers. The warmth of his hand comforted her, and the thought of their baby growing just underneath made her heart flutter slightly.

"Me too," she said softly, eating another spoon of ice cream and then resting her head on his shoulder.

Mark groaned when Addison broke the contact between them. He tilted his head to the side, watching her with a grin.

"So how are you planning on replacing this ice cream?" He wondered, smirking as suggestively as he could manage. "That tasted pretty good, you know."
Addison walked over to their minibar and opened up the small freezer, placing the ice cream inside with a glance over her shoulder at Mark. She smirked, standing up and walking slowly back to the bed as she kept his gaze the entire time.

"Just Addison can still satiate you, right?" she grinned wickedly and kneeled onto the bed, crawling up beside him.

Mark lifted their connected hands to his lips and pressed a quick kiss to the back of her hand before letting them drop again, "Well, I do say so. And we both know I'm always right."
Addison rolled her eyes in mock annoyance and let out a sigh, "There you go with your confidence again." She shifted in his arms to lie on her back. "But I do beg to differ. I'm the one that's always right."

Smirking, she tugged on his hand and began to absently play with his fingers.
