With the summer around the corner, the Davis household had been blessed with a little new life. As he was walking on his way home after a hard day of exams in the university, Greg was replaying on his mind all the events of the last nine months: the rescue of his grandpa, a new house to live in, Talula’s soul-siblings, the wedding, their honeymoon, all the work of his first movie, their first Valentines day together, setting up everything for the arrival of the child… and finally, Tenni’s birth, where they counted with Sadon’s extraordinary help. So many things that made him smile, so many things he was thankful for.
And finally, his beloved home came into view. He opened carefully the door, not wanting to startle anyone - much less their child. His mother had tolf him that newborn babies slept a lot, so Greg was mindful with every step.
"Hellloo? Just came home~" he said as greeting, trying not to be too loud, knowing that his wife would hear him perfectly.
Talula had just finished feeding little Tennime when she heard her husband enter the house, a soft smile crossed her lips at the thoughtful way he called out in a quiet tone. When the infant in her arms heard the sound of his daddy’s voice, he began to squirm and coo.
"Up here na’ha’ne, we’re in the baby’s room!" She glanced over at her mother-in-law who had been there chatting while Tenni ate. "I told you he’d be home soon and I bet he remembered to stop at the pharmacy to pick up my vitamins too!"
"Oooh, good!" Noticing that Talula was speaking out loud, he guessed that Tennime was awake. That was great! He loved to greet both his wife and his son with big, big kisses. Sure Tal would appreciate something he had got at the chemist some hours ago.
Alice giggled in response. “You were right, darling! I hope he didn’t forget. Poor thing has been so busy with exams lately, that I’d forgive him if it slipped from his mind…!”
"But it didn’t slip! I bought them this morning, right before walking into the university!!" Greg interrupted her, peeking through the door. He took out the vitamins and handed them them to his mother, before he took a seat next to his wife. He cupped gently her cheek and kissed her slowly, taking his time to to enjoy the moment. After that, he pressed a soft smooch to their baby’s fluffy hair. "How are you, na’ha’ne? Did Tenni behave on my absence?"
Holding their child so he wouldn’t be squished between them as they kissed, she greedily returns it. Since they had to maintain abstinence for six weeks, she enjoyed any close contact as much as possible. When he finally pulls away, a soft sigh escapes her lips as the corners of her eyes crinkle in amusement.
"Tenni’s been a little angle, he had a good nap before waking up and demanding to be fed! I’m glad now that we got that unique rocking chair it sure makes feeding him easy!”
