Prompts: 67. “Aw, you’re blushing.” and 71. “Are you really flirting with me right now?”
Amelia and Link are still adjusting to living/ taking care of a baby, and they both navigate it together. It’s just a little bit after the birth, and in my mind Amelia and Link are living on their own.
Really fluffy and cute, no smut but still a little hot.
“Is he down yet?” Amelia wondered, sliding under the covers hoping to get some rest.
They were checking on him in shifts everytime he cried, and it was Link’s turn.
“Just got down, I hope he’ll stay down it’s almost 3 AM.” He admitted, wrapping an arm around her waist, kissing her nose quickly before she closed her eyes.
“Babies are hard work.” She told him sleepily.
It was a subtle confession out of her own sleepish delerium, but it was also very true.
Neither of them could’ve expected such a small baby to be so much work, but it was definitely a good type of work. They were raising life that could one day create more life if he felt so inclined.
“It’s never going to be easy, but we got this.” Link convinced her, but also himself.
“Mhm.” She mumbled half passed out, waiting for him to wish her a good night.
“Good night.” He finally told her, resting his head on hers.
The next morning Amelia was the first to wake.
The neurosurgeon walked in her sons room, quietly to not create any sudden movements.￼
she rubbed his back in circles trying to soothe him as he began to cry suddenly out of shock.
His mother had woken him up abruptly trying to change his diaper, and he didn’t like how fast it all happened.
“Shhh. It’s ok baby.” She whispered, continuing to caress his little body, smiling wide when the little boy wrapped his whole hand around Amelia’s finger.
She waited until he was void of any discontentment or confusion, and changed his little diaper, proceeding to pick him up and take him downstairs.
The brunette put him in his little crib downstairs, turned on kids YouTube, and made some coffee for herself all the while Link slept.￼￼
She figured she’d let him rest until his body woke him up because he took her shift for her the night before.
After they drifted off to sleep Scout cried at about 5 AM needing to be changed and fed.
Though it was technically Amelia‘s turn, link grabbed one of the milk bottles from the fridge that Amelia pumped, and did it all himself.
He noticed how deep in slumber she was, and this time Amelia did the same for her boyfriend exactly like they should.
They were a team.
￼ About an hour later link finally got out of bed, coming down the steps to the smell of coffee and pancakes.
￼ It looked like she was finishing up her last batch, monitoring what she was doing, until link came up behind her and wrapped his arms around her waist.
“Good morning.” He whispered huskily in her ear, his bare front touching her silk night gown.
“Hello.” She turned around in his arms after flipping her pancake.
She kissed his lips, smiling into it as Link did the same.
“You taste Like coffe.” He mumbled, placing his hands on her cheeks to really kiss her.
“Do I? Wonder why…” She giggled taking the flesh of his bottom lip into her mouth to tease him, all the while staying mindful of the food she was cooking.
Amelia separated them momentarily, placing the contents in individual plates as Link grabbed his own and made way to the table.
They sat close, eating while checking on a sound asleep Scout from time to time.
“So pancakes… Coffee….” Link tiptoed, wiping the syrup of of her mouth with his finger.
To that she rolled her eyes playfully, and took a small breath.
She wanted something.
Not a very big something.
“I want to go to the park today. Just so we can get out the house, maybe we could find a little place for lunch… Besides, baby’s first official outing, it’s cool.” She suggested, and Link furrowed his brows in confusion.
“Why would I say no to that? I wanna get out out the house as much as you do, and Scout needs some sun.” He explained, getting up to throw his plate as well as hers in the sink.
“I don’t know, you’re exhausted. I figured maybe you wanted to stay in for a while.” She shrugged.
“I am exhausted, but I do wanna leave this apartment. We need good air.” Link justified, hoping she wouldn’t overthink it.
Now Sitting on the couch, he invited her into his embrace watching as she peeked in scouts crib.
“So after nap time?” She asked, grabbing the remote to change the channel.
“After nap time.” He approved, kissing her cheek chastely when she joined him where he wanted.
The car ride to the park went smoothly, only after Amelia checked. double checked. and triple checked that they had everything they needed.
once they arrived Link placed their stuff on the grass with a blanket, laying on his back to look at the sky.
He figured they were at the park, so why not just enjoy it.
“Come here.” He told Amelia, who was right behind him in movement.
She had the little one in her arms, but laid him on her chest mimicking her boyfriend.
“I like this.” she intertwined their hands, looking at the clouds.
she wasn’t aware that life could be like this.
For starters she was now a mother… A mother to a functioning healthy child, as well as her child’s amazing father.
It took her a while to get this far.
From addiction to heartbreak, two figuring herself out, and to finally having it.￼
she had a good man.
A Beautiful baby.￼￼
A wonderful job that she loved.
A community of people that wanted to see her grow and learn.
And she couldn’t have thought that she would have the opportunity to live worry free, looking at the clouds with her family.
It was incredible.
“Me too. we should do this more often…￼Especially if all goes well today, we’ll know he’s good in public.￼” The ortho surgeon turned on his side, looking that his girlfriend discreetly.
“Definitely.” She closed her eyes, taking in the rays of light on her face.
they sat there for about 30 minutes but Scout fussed, disrupting the comfortable silence.
“What the heck?!” Amelia wondered, quickly remembering that was a poor reaction.
changing the narrative she placed her son in between Link and herself, frowning when it did nothing.
“Is he hungry?” She wondered.
“I don’t think so, he fed well before we came.”
“Does he need a changing?” She questioned once more.
“Let’s see…” Link creased his forehead, smelling his boys little bum.
“Yep, that’s the one.” His face soured, causing all Amelia’s distress to fade.
She laughed loudly, looking around to find a bathroom.
“I’ll change him.” Link took the job for her though it wasn’t an issue for his girlfriend.
“Really? It’s no biggie.” She tried, but Link was quick to shut her down with a kiss.
“I got this. You go find a sandwich or something.” He picked up the baby, patting his back while he bopped for stimulation.
￼ Amelia did as suggested and grabbed a sandwich for herself and for her boyfriend at the little kiosk next to where they were seated, and waited until Link came back with Scout.
she got a little worried when they didn’t come back as soon as she thought they would, but once they came she beamed.
“We’re back. sorry it took so long, we got a little lost.” Link apologized, taking the sandwich Amelia was holding.
“Ham and swiss.” She destinguished the type, taking scout back on the blanket. ￼￼
They eventually settled once more, staying at the park watching the scenery and talking for about two hours.
they planed to stay longer until…
“Shit.” Amelia cursed horrified.
“What?!” Link asked, looking at her with the same scared face.
he looked around in every direction, until he saw it.
Scout’s spit up all over Amelia.
“I need wipes. Lots of them.” She called like a drill sergeant, and Link in one swoop￼ grabbed them from the bag.
Amelia sat up and took the wipes her boyfriend tossed in her direction, making it a priority to wipe his bib and his face first.￼
“Yuck!” She exclaimed wiping her fingers, and her now filthy shirt.
“I need more.”
“On it.” Link grabbed the full pack, cringing at the smell when he got closer to her.
“Stop making that face.” Amelia grimaced, trying her best to clean herself.
“I’m disgusting right now.” She groaned, no matter how hard she tried there was just more and more spit up to be discovered.
“you’ll never be disgusting… Hot… Even with spit up, you make it work.” ￼Link smirked regaining himself, but chuckled when his significant other frowned.
“Are you really flirting with me right now?” she scowled, trying to stay serious.
“Most definitely.” Link smirked, pulling her senses to the brim.
“you smart ass.” she joked, reddening in her face.
“Aw, you’re blushing.” He teased, quickly surrendering when she had her- ‘your sleeping on the couch.’ Look on her face.
“come on let’s go home and get you guys cleaned up.” ￼He quickly shifted his tone.
Later that night after they finally put￼ Scout to bed, Link drew a bath for the both of them so they could unwind.
They could only do it every so often, and now that Scout had been sleeping for over an hour, he thought it was the perfect time for them to do it before he woke abruptly.
“I feel like I still have spit up somewhere on me.” Amelia felt disgusted, sitting with her back against Link’s front.
“You don’t.” He promised, sticking his face in her hair to smell her.
He loved the scent of her hair as she just switched to lavender shampoo.
“So today was a good day once you get past the spit up… Right?” Link wondered.
“Yeah, i’d say so. He was really good today which isn’t a surprise, I just wish we could’ve stayed longer.” Amelia acquired, thinking about how relaxing it was before the incident.
“Definitely. Maybe he’ll get calmer if he’s out and about, it’s just gonna take a little while.” Link was sure, but he wanted to see the mother of his son’s face.
He lifted her chin gently so she was looking at him, immediately assaulted by her blue pools and asked.
“Today was a good day?”
“Today was a good day.” She emphasized, kissing his lips.
Sorry if this seems rushed, or poorly written.
Good morning, evening, or night to ya’ ;)
