“Lullabies for the Road Home” | Read on AO3
Jaskier realises that this is the first time Geralt and Yennefer are hearing him sing Ciri’s second lullaby, and in front of them to boot. The song is only halfway complete, but Ciri likes the first two verses so Jaskier doesn’t mind indulging her.
As he continues to sing in that low, soothing voice he knows Ciri prefers, he looks up to see the other two occupants in the room looking at them, at Jaskier, with expressions that send a swooping sensation in Jaskier’s stomach.
It’s naked adoration on Geralt’s.
It’s a heartfelt wonder on Yennefer’s.
“Lean on me, when you’re not strong,” Jaskier croons, eyes trained on golden eyes that crinkle when Geralt smiles. He looks at Yennefer next, a crooked smile stretching on his face. “I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on.”
Yennefer’s answering smile, small and a little timid, momentarily takes Jaskier’s breath away.
