momslilassassin: ([plot] Girl!Ben is worried)
[personal profile] momslilassassin
Turns out that waking up as a woman when your daughter is expecting you to be a man is not the most exhilirating start to a morning-now-heading-into-afternoon.

"Come on, Val," Ben soothed, rocking the sobbing infant as he paced the room for the thousandth time. "It's me. I still feel the same in the Force, I just...look different."

Perhaps philosophical discussions of gender and sex were not the place to start with a distraut one month old. "Ender?"

Ender sighed. He looked tired. He had good reason to look tired. "I can take her," he said, getting up off the bed.

"You dream such big dreams," Ender said, walking over to take the baby in his arms.

"And we can't even foist her on your grandfather, because he's probably a girl, too," Ender sighed.

He wandered over to grab one of Val's toys. Maybe that would help?

"C'mon, love," Ender whispered to the baby. He took the giraffe and squeaked it. "Please?"

Now came the difficult part: sliding the bottle into Val's mouth without distracting her and setting her off again.

Ender was also holding his breath.

For a long, long thirty seconds.

After which she sucked the nipple of the bottle into her mouth quietly.

He released his breath.

"We're not done yet," Ender said, watching Val very closely. "She could decide not to go to sleep after food this time."

"Sorry," Ender said quietly, and clung onto the bottle as Val chugged through it.

As the bottle neared empty, Ender slowly began to walk back towards the crib, muttering "please don't cry please don't cry" under his breath.

There had never been a singular human being who put a baby as gingerly down in a crib as Ender did with Val.

He was actively holding his breath as her head touched the pillow...

... and she remained silent.

He stepped away. "Oh, thank god."

Date: 2015-06-06 09:40 pm (UTC)
endsthegame: (girl: ... uh huh)
From: [personal profile] endsthegame
Ender took a few more steps back. "No," he whispered back, "Get on the bed. Get to sleep. Now. While you can."

Ender sighed. Then froze.

But there was no sound from Val.

So he tip-toed towards the bed as fast as he could and sat down on it.

"Don't talk too loudly," Ender whispered. He curled up against Ben on the bed.

Date: 2015-06-07 07:46 pm (UTC)

Ender slid his arm around Ben's waist. "Love you," he said softly.
