Sure, sure. There you are, let me just budge out of the way.
Thank you, kindly. I didn’t realize I’d need an extra set of arms after—
Always such a good mate, Tiberius..
Mhm, that’s so.
You should have said something before now.
Why? This ended up working well. Here, you can finish it. I should probably eat something substantial. It’s been a long week and I feel ready to fall over.
How are you? I’m sorry for not being— around.
Na, pizza’s moah impahtant.
Is that so?
I had been hoping for something a little less greasy, but this’ll do.
I think you have a valid excuse for that. New fatherhood, I think, tends to take up a lot of time and mental energy. How is my godson, by the way?
You haven’t the slightest idea of it, Doe. I’ve been over every few days and the little one is already showing how brilliant he is, brilliant and very, very loud. He’s good, I think we’ll have to have a dinner with the three of us soon.. Will just have to check with his mum.
Oh sh– Sorry!
You really should watch where you’re going, mate.
For the love of Merlin, please do not tell me it’s still Thursday.
Relax, I think you’re in luck. It is ver much a Friday. I’ve gotten bad at remembering the days..
Well? Ah-well, it's common sense. Of course there are going to be rules. How ever else would we stay on the book, let alone the same page? We'll sort it all out with the custody arrangements, and I'll respect your rules, just as I assume you would respect mine.
Rules— You’re making our son seem more like a prize we share. Which isn’t the case. He’s a boy, a being. I understand that this isn’t what either of us signed up for that night, but I’ll make one thing quite clear now, and I do mean this with all due respect. I am his father, not a schoolboy who will be told when and what he can do. I will of course be respectful of your life and the choices you make, so long as they do not impact Alexander’s life, just as I assume you will when he is with me. Starting with those girls I mentioned before. They are to be quite important in his life, in my eyes they will act as his godparents. So if and when they do show up, know they are acting on my behalf. I don’t know why I was so nervous to bring it up, I guess to a point I was still acting like a boy, not a man or a father. Luckily that hat is on quite snugly now.
I think I should go, too much excitement is never a good thing for a new mother. I’m sure you’d like to sleep. Oh and in case they haven’t yet alerted you, the bill for everything has been taken care of.
Sleep well, and it was lovely to see you, Hestia.
