The room was finally ready. The walls were already painted and decorated, the furniture was in the right place, the curtains were covering the windows, the toys were already there, fairytale books were perfectly organized in a shelf, little clothes hanging in the closet, everything ready for the little girl that would soon be sleeping there. Lyla. Dexter’s daughter. Adam’s daughter.
oH MY GOD FUCKING BYE HE WAS AFRAID OF HER WANTING TO HOLD HIS HAND SO HE FUCKING PUT HIS HAND IN IS POCKET I LIT SHOULD’VE STOPPED READING AT THAT POINT BC SHE SAID PAPA AND I FUCKING I LIT WOKE MY MOM UP NEXT TO ME BC OF THE SOUND THAT CAME OUT OF MY FUCKING THROAT LIKE BYE I DIDNT ASK FO R THIS EXCEPT I DID LIKE FUCK MY LIFE AND THEN MASON U FUCKING SPAZZ OMG I UNDERSTAND HIS POINT OF VIEW BU T LIKE U FUCKED UP OMG LYLA HAD NO INSECURITIES ABOUT MASON BC OF HER YOUTH AND INNOCENCE BUT MASON LITERALLY CREATED INSECURITIES IN HER BC OF HIS INSECURITIES LIKE AFTER THAT SHE WOULD PROBABLY THINK HE DIDNT WANT HER TO CALL HIM PAPA SO SHE WOULDNT DO IT ANYMORE OH MY GOD LITERALLY DON’T TOUCH ME I CANT HANDLE THIS RIFGHT NOW BYE.
It’s a little surprising to Dexter that he’s gone an entire 32 years of his existence without ever having held an infant. But he has and so the first time Lyla St. Clair-D’Angelo is placed in his arms it takes his breath away. The child wasn’t even brought into this earth because of him, there’s no blood relation, but she will grow up calling him dad and she will grow up dependent on him and she will grow up loving him and that thought is what breaks Dex down. The fact that there is a life quite literally in his hands now blows him away and when he looks up from the child, to the man standing in front of him, there’s nothing to describe the grin on his face but purely idiotic.
Oh, thank you. I used to have crooked teeth but then I went to the dentist and they fixed them. I still don’t understand why my dad didn’t jut fix them with a spell…He gave me a good reason, I’m sure but I didn’t pay attention long enough to remember.
Well, I don’t think being weird id too bad either. I think is more fun, the world is much better if your view is not what people think is normal. Probably not. But at least he had fun going to Madagascar and all that. Yeah, I don’t think he’d be sorted in Ravenclaw either. Why do you think the penguin would end up in Hufflepuff?
Our parents always know what’s best for us so he probably had a good reason…or maybe he just wanted to see you suffer. Maybe he secretly liked it. Maybe he’s secretly evil.
I don’t know, I guess because he wanted something and he followed his heart and went for it regardless the consequences. Some might say that’s a Gryffindor trait, but Gryffindors do things to prove a point, not for the wide eyed wonder.
Your smile. Smiles are contagious in a good way, they are nice and lovely so…Yeah. You can bring hope to people with smiles and gestures of kindness. Or stick to your original idea of glowing green and find someone who likes Gatsby, I’m sure it will be wondrous!
Oh, really? I’ve never found it weird. But maybe it is weird and I’m weird but since I’ve always been this way, I don’t find myself weird. Well…Maybe the penguin liked to travel and went to Madagascar to take a sun bath but fell asleep and got sun burned.
I-oh er…[Her eyes dart away from him, unable to figure out how to respond to his statements which make her feel pleasant inside.] You have a nice smile too…for a sunburned penguin.
My mom and dad call each other weird all the time but they really like each other so I don’t think being weird is too bad. Well that penguin clearly didn’t think his decisions through very well. I don’t think he would be sorted into Ravenclaw like me. Hufflepuff maybe.
You don’t have to shine green to be someone’s hope. Just offer them one of those pretty smiles of yours and I’m sure even the most pessimist of people will feel a bit optimistic.
Well, I absolutely adore penguins and pink so…I’ll be a sunburnt penguin!
That’s a weird color for a boy to like. Being weird is ok though. Sunburned penguins are highly illogical though, why would a penguin ever be in enough searing heat to get burned?
As cute and heart warming as that is…What are you doing in a hospital waiting room? Is u okay?
omg yeah i’m fine i just needed a refill on my birth control and they were lit taking 3000000 fucking years with it cause the american health system is piss.
oH MY GOD BUT LIKE LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT HETEROSEXUAL CHINESE ANGELCLIFF THAT WAS SITTING IN FRONT OF ME AND RICH WHITE GABRIKAI THAT WAS SITTING NEXT TO ME HOMYGOD. THE LADY CALLED HER HUSBAND “OLD MAN” JOKINGLY AND HE MADE A FACE AND I HAD A HEART ATTACK AND THEY HAD THIS RIDICULOUSLY SHY LITTLE BOY AND GABRIKAI’S 2 LITTLE BOYS WERE TRYING TO SOCIALIZE WITH HIM BUT HE WAS NERVOUS AS FUCK FOR A LONG TIME BEFORE WARMING UP TO THEM AND HIS MOM HAD TO KEEP ENCOURAGING HIM.
AND GABRIKAI WAS SO FRICKIN LOVEY DOVEY? LIKE THEY HAD A BABY AND 2 BOYS THAT WERE RUNNING AROUND AND THEY COOED OVER THEIR BABY LIKE NO TOMORROW IT WAS SO CUTE AND SHE WAS BLONDE AND HE WAS A SCRUFFY DARK HAIRED DUDE WITH A JAW AND I WAS LIKE GOODBYE.
AND THEN THEY STARTED TALKING CAUSE THEIR KIDS WERE PLAYING AND IT TURNED OUT THAT THEY USED TO WORK IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD YEARS AGO AND IM LIKE
I’ve been sitting in this hospital waiting room for like 12 years watching this family that is literally Angelcliff+kids interact with this family that is literally Gabby and Malekai+kids like BYE IM GOING TO DRABBLE THIS SO HARD WHEN I GET HOME.
Oh, good! Of course we can scare people, it’ll be super fun. What colour do you want your skin to be? There’s green, orange and pink which are the classic ones but there are tons of other’s colours.
Green. Bright green like Gatsby. I want to be hope for somebody.
You should be pink. You’d look like a sunburned penguin.
