John Sheppard [userpic]

It is late when John pinpoints quietly into the London house, sneaking his way right to watch his babies sleep. He doesn't bother seeing anyone else in the house, if they're even awake, he doesn't know. He just stands between the babies cribs, watching them both  quietly. Gilly burbles in her sleep, whining quietly until he moves to adjust what is obviously one of his shirts in with her closer and she settles.

He takes his glasses off, rubbing his eyes with a sigh.

Comments

He's quiet a while, then just turns a little to lift her right up off the floor and kiss her soundly.

She squeaks against his lips, clutching his arms.

He smiles a little when he sets her down. "Nice to see you again, by the way."

"I miss you a lot, baby."

"I miss you, too." He touches her cheek, still smiling faintly. "Sorry it's been so long."

"We knew it was going to be hard...and it's not like you've never left me alone before."

"I know. Still don't like it. I'm going to try and get back a little more often."

"I'd appreciate that...honestly, John, though, this is more along the lines of what I was expecting that morning after you and Jonathan knocked me up."

"...Okay you need to explain that a little."

"Well, I wasn't expecting you were going to haul me off to Atlantis."

"You were obviously confused about the depth of my love for you."

"Mm." He brushes a hand through her hair. "How is everyone?"

"The kids are still adjusting."

"Winning the battle against captain Nopants yet?"
