    Abby Walters



    Abby was a little disappointed that Angie's husband wouldn't be coming. She and Jake didn't have any friends that were couples and she thought it would be nice to make some. It would be another step in their relationship. But Abby learned a long time ago that you couldn't pressure a man. She just hoped that eventually J and Jake could meet and maybe be friends. If not, well, she and Angie could still be.

    Game Days were always a big deal in Abby's home. Nicholas loved them and Jake and Derek both came. Like her, Derek never missed a game. Derek also seemed to like Jake, which was good. Jake was becoming an important part of their lives and she wanted to include him in things like this. And not have to worry about Derek being jealous or feeling replaced. He would always be Nicky's father. It was important to her that she and Derek got along with each other and any one the other was dating. While she still had some lingering anger over how her marriage ended, she never let Nicholas see it. She'd vent to her sister and put on a happy face meeting one of Derek's girlfriends. Currently, he was single, though. He had went on a lot more dates than she had since their breakup.

    The park hosted quite a few games on the weekend and parking wasn't an easy job. Abby and Derek actually started going together, it was easier to find a parking spot and it gave Nicky a chance to be with both his parents. Once Nicholas was with his team, Derek and Abby were talking with each other at the bleachers. Abby was proud of herself, she had gotten to the point in her life that she and Derek could communicate as friends. She didn't want to stab him in the groin every time she saw him. She saw Angie and waved to her.

    Jake Turner



    Jake knew Angie wasn't happy with him. She wanted him to meet her new friend, and normally he would have indulged her. But today was game day for Nicky and he had plans for Abby. He was always excited to see Abby. Being with her...He hadn't felt the way with his own wife in a long time. If he was a real man, he'd tell his wife their marriage wasn't working out for him anymore but Jake didn't like confrontation or change. He'd rather hide what he was doing then face the consequences of his actions. Unfortunately, for him, the two women in his life were going to find out far sooner then he ever hoped.

    He told Angie and Sally to have fun and headed to the park. Abby always when with her ex and he would meet them there. He was sure today would be no different.

    Angela Parker



    Angie had to admit she was a bit upset that she couldn't take Jake along with her to meet her new friend. It would be nice to do something as a family, but she was getting used to the fact that she couldn't really expect Jake to spend more time with them than he did. It made her a little sad because Sally was growing up, and she would soon be less interested in spending time with mommy and daddy, and Jake was missing out because he was always working. Letting out a long sigh, Angie decided to enjoy her day.

    After a shower and bathing Sally, Angie dressed them both in similar outfits - light wash jeans and a pink t-shirt for each -, another thing she wanted to enjoy while she could. She was sure in no time she wouldn't be cool anymore and her style would be lame for her daughter. While she was looking forward to seeing Sally grow into a young lady, she wanted to enjoy each step of the way while it lasted.

    Once they were ready, Angie checked the car seat and got Sally safely on it. The drive was pleasant, with music, talking and laughing, and both Sally and Angela seemed to be okay with the fact that it would be just the two of them. Once she parked her car, Angie got Sally out of the car and indulged her request to be carried. It went by so fast, so why not?, she considered, moving towards the bleachers and looking for Abby. As soon as she saw her new friend, Angie smiled and waved back, moving to join her and Derek as quickly as she could. "Hey, Abby, thanks for inviting us again", she greeted, before smiling and offering Derek a hand shake and then turning to Sally. "Honey?"

    The little girl looked at Abby curiously and then at her mom. "Hi, Ms. Abby", she finally greeted, letting out a shy little giggle. Angie rolled her eyes. "She'll warm up to you soon, don't worry".

    Abby Walters



    It was too bad that Angie's husband couldn't join them, but Abby was sure they would still have fun. Perhaps, they could arrange a double date sometime. Just for the grownups, that could fun.

    Abby smiled at Sally, bending down to the little girl's level.

    "It's nice to meet you, Sally. Your mom has told me lots of nice things about you."

    She stood back up and nodded her head at Angie.

    "It's fine. Nicky was shy like that once."

    "Yeah, when he was about three."

    Derek added with a smile and Abby introduced her ex to her new friend. He told Angie.

    "It's nice to meet you. Any friend of Abby's is a friend of mine."

    It was nice that she could consider Derek her friend now. Abby looked at her watch and said.

    "The game will start in about half hour."

    It gave the kids time to warm up, Nicholas had already with his team and Jake should be here soon. He hadn't missed a game yet.
