Wake up, Gamzee. We’re home.

[Ashvin’s voice lacks its typical sharpness as he nudges the, no, his small child in the backseat to wake up. The tone in his voice is cautious – as if too sharp a note would cause social services to sneak up behind him and take away his new son before they’d barely walking in the door.

But, of course, that would be stupid and excessive. So why , exactly, could he not shake the feeling?

He lifts the stirring toddler out of his car seat, pulling him close. The child’s weight in his arms is foreign. Years had passed since Mituna had been that size – and he was missing a good chunk of Sollux’s “carry-me” years. Part of him wasn’t even sure if Sollux would want to be held next time they met.

But, that would also be stupid. Why was he wasting so much of this moment being insufferable anyway?

He carries the toddler in through the garage, ducking his head as they entered into the kitchen.]

This is your new home, kid.

[The lameness of that phrasing made him inwardly grimace. He set the child down onto the tiled floor before kneeling downward. Should he offer some grand tour of his one-floor home? Should he feed him?

Jesus, he was off to a great start in proving he could assimilate back into society as some notable paternal figure.]

What do you think?
