Summary: Dominique accepted the reality.

Dominique stared at the otter, tuning out the conversation between Teddy and Victoire. She knew she should be jealous. Her big sister was flirting with her boyfriend, a persistent smile on her face, even as Teddy politely backed away without actually say he wasn't interested.

Dominique wasn't jealous, though. She was secure in Teddy's feelings for her. They were in love in a way Victoire would never understand.

Some might think Victoire was a backstabber. After all, what kind of girl tried to steal her little sister's boyfriend? And it was happening right in front of the little sister.

All Dominique felt was sympathy, though. Victoire liked Teddy long before Dominique did. In fact, it was Victoire singing praises about how amazing Teddy was that made Dominique take notice of the older boy.

She hadn't planned to go after someone her sister had a crush on, but Teddy and Dominique continuously got thrown together in family gatherings. And in a natural progression, Teddy fell for her just as hard as Dominique fell for him.

Victoire had been hurt that Teddy had chosen Dominique, but she said she accepted it. Of course, that didn't stop her from trying to change Teddy's mind about which daughter was the better choice for him.

Dominique knew it would be the reality of their lives before Victoire found some other boy to obsess over, and she accepted it.
