Not Yours, Not Mine, But Ours

They had both loved her. They had both tried to save her. Now that she is gone, a best friend and an older brother have to work together to raise the children that she left behind. As Shemar and Dr. Scotland "Scotty" Fields figure out how to be instant parents they find themselves falling in love.


5. Chapter Five

The two months that followed had been two of the hardest months of Scotland's life. Between the two of them, Shemar and her had given Charlotte a beautiful funeral and had her laid to rest beside her mother.

The after the funeral the two of them had met with Dr. Cox and his wife Jordan, a board member at the hospital, to choose a children's psychiatrist for the kids to visit on a weekly basis. They hoped it would help them process their mother's death in a healthy manner.

Shemar had been true to his word and had stuck around to help – and helpful he was! He helped with the household chores, he helped with homework, car pools, and was always there if one of the kids needed a shoulder to cry on.

Victoria's anger problems seemed to be subsiding. Brittany was nowhere near as clingy as she used to be and Jaden's anxiety was getting more and more under control. The kids were benefitting from having a male role model in the house and that is exactly why Scotland was worried.

How long could this last before the kids' sense of security was taken from them once again? Shemar had to go back to L.A. He couldn't stay in San Francisco forever. He had a job, didn't he?

She was sitting at the kitchen table filling out intern evaluations and Shemar was in the living room watching the news with the kids when she got her answer.

"Aunt Scotty, come quick! Uncle Shemar is on the news! I made him pause it!" Brittany ran into the kitchen like a bat out of hell, grabbed her hand and started pulling her towards the living room.

When she arrived in the living room she noticed a couple of things. First, she noticed the image of Shemar frozen on the flat screen that hung from the south wall. In the stock image, he was dressed as her character Derek Morgan from Criminal Minds and was aiming a gun. Second, she noticed that Victoria and Jaden seemed to be in shock over something...they were actually silent...they were NEVER silent if they awake and Jaden even talked in his sleep. Finally, she noticed that Shemar had a guilty expression on his face. Now she HAD to know what the news story was about.

She nodded at Shemar to press play which he reluctantly did.

"Actor Shemar Moore announced today that he is leaving his role as Agent Derek Morgan on the long-running CBS crime drama Criminal Minds..."

Scotland didn't need to hear anymore and walked over and shut off the TV. "Kids, go get ready for bed," She instructed.

For once there was no argument. Maybe sensing that the adults needed to talk, the kids went off to do as they were told without complaint.

"We need to talk," She turned to Shemar.
