I forgive you as long as it’s sincere, and not you being sarcastic, Neal
“Oh, that’s not fair.” Neal said in response to Emma’s pouting.
As he positioned himself so that he was facing Emma again, Neal placed his hand on her cheek, gently rubbing with his thumb. “You really should play fair” He laughed quietly and placed a kiss on Emma’s lips, slowly moving his hands to the back of her neck.
"Hey says the owner of the puppy pout" she replied with an eye roll as he looked down at her, and when he kissed her she laughed, groaning slightly when she felt his hands moving towards the back of her neck, "Hey didn’t we just do this" she told him lightly, "I thought you were tired"
Neal was slouching in the waiting room, biting his nails out of habit. He looked over at Emma for a quick moment, and could tell she was nervous. He sat back against the chair and reached his hand out for Emma’s, softly squeezing when he reached it. When he heard their names, Neal let out a sigh. All of a sudden he was lightheaded, he wasn’t this nervous a moment ago. Neal stood back and waited as they took Emma’s weight, blood, asked questions. He thought that was it until the nurse gave Emma a gown and said that there was another exam. His eyebrow furrowed a bit as he looked at Emma, confused.
“Uh.. what part?” He didn’t know much about this stuff, actually he knew nothing about it. Neal had never been through this before, and he didn’t think about researching a bit more before they came.
"I’m going to get checked, if you don’t want to be in here for that, it’s okay" after all it wasn’t like Neal had ever really gone through this. The last time Emma herself had been through it, well it had been in prison so she had a feeling the experience was going to be completely different. She changed out of her clothes and into the gown that she was handed. She bit down on her lip as she waited for the doctor, when she finally came in she smiled at both of them. Miss Swan, Mr. Cassidy, I’m the attending today and I will hopefully be handling all of your prenatal care from now on. Emma stared at her, “So I am pregnant?” she asked, Yes our tests came out positive. Emma blinked as she looked at Neal, that she almost missed when the doctor asked her to lay back so she could perform the pelvic exam. But she still did it, a part of her brain was still processing it, she was going to be a mom again. At least her occupied mind allowed her to not think about the exam because usually those things were uncomfortable as hell. Everything seems to be in order, we’ll schedule you for your first ultrasound next week. Do you have any questions? Emma blinked, “No, Neal do you have questions?” she asked as she looked over at him.
LOL So this is the timeline of events…
I read tinkerbellreturns updated Maid To Love You fic (very good btw) and then a bit later I’m making this Swanfire sass vid which lead me to this…
And then this
So of course he does this
Maybe my mind was already in the gutter when it came to these two but come on… look at the way he’s looking at her while she’s bent over on the floor. Dirty Neal, dirty Neal.
Neal bit his lip and nodded as Emma spoke, sighing as he looked over at the woman in the drivers seat. “We can take turns.” He said, the only thing that showed his was kind of joking, was a small laugh he let out after he finished speaking. He turned to look out the window, almost as if he was unconsciously scanning for August. When he felt a hand on his, he looked down at his hand, and then back up at Emma. He listened as she spoke, and nodded. Neal wasn’t exactly the guy who let things go easily, unless it came to Emma, or Henry. But he was willing to give up on his stubbornness for this, he was going to temporarily let this go. What they were about to find out could be life changing, and that was stressful enough for the time being. He continued to stare at Emma, most of the time it was easy to be calm around her. Just one look at her and the rest of the world faded away. “You’re right..” He paused. “Alright, we’re about to be late. Let’s go find out for sure whether or not we’re having a baby..”
Emma looked at Neal who bit down on his lip, she knew she was mad. And if she ended up seeing August, the man was going to end up either bloodied up on the floor, or he was going to end up in a jail cell. She could only imagine what she could have done with the type of cash that Neal had sent from fencing the watches. Maybe she could have kept Henry. She could have kept her kid. She shook her head, it was too late to think about what could have been. A lot of things could have happened differently if they hadn’t made the choices they had, it was too late to lament them. She sighed as she finally turned the car on and made her way towards the hospital. They managed to make it in time, the one good thing about being Sheriff was that she could speed and no one would catch her.
She bit down on her lip nervously as they waited in the waiting room. Finally they called their names, and they were greeted by the nurse who made small talk as she did all of the things you normally did on doctor visits, she took her weight, and other things. She finally led them to the exam room, where she asked a bunch of questions, and Emma looked over at Neal nervously, she had already filled out a family history when she had a check- up right before her trip to Manhattan. Once she took blood and other things, she informed Emma that the doctor would be in for another exam, and she instructed Emma to put on the gown she was providing, and with that she left. “I forgot about this part” she muttered, recalling that she had to have a similar exam when she had been pregnant with Henry.
Neal let out a small chuckle and laid his head against Emma’s, her warmth was like electricity, something he couldn’t live without, and something he never again wanted to. At her question, Neal sighed. “Well..” He started, “You probably don’t have much time, but me? I could lay here all day.”
She snuggled into him even more, she had no real desire to move from where she was. She knew that Henry would get up, and she’d have to make sure he ate breakfast before he made it to school, and then she had to go to work, but it was easy to forget all of that when she was with Neal. She actually felt like a teenager again thanks to him. “Are you actually saying you would just lounge in bed all day while i went to work? You’d do that to me?” she pouted.
Neal laugh. at Emma’s teasing. “Perhaps that was the point of this little work out.”
"To tire me out? That is definitely not a nice thing Neal" she teased as she snuggled into him, "How long can we pull off being in bed before we have to go be active members of society?"
“What do you think?” He whispered.
Neal cuddled Emma, placing a kiss on her forehead. “Love you.” He whispered, letting out a smile as he spoke.
She curled up next to him, closing her eyes as she felt his lips on her forehead, “I love you” she mumbled quietly, “And you effectively exhausted me, congratulations” she teased
Neal stopped from biting Emma’s neck just long enough to allow her to pull off his shirt. After it was off, he kissed Emma’s lips, slowly moving his hands down her stomach. When he reached her hips, he smiled, teasing her by lightly rubbing his fingers on her hips, slowly moving towards the middle of her lower stomach.
She was glad once he helped with the shirt, and she wrapped her arms around him as he kissed her, and she tried not to react to his hands on her stomach and then resting on her hips, she tugged on his hair as she felt him slowly moving to her lower stomach, and she pulled away, “What are you doing?” she asked in a teasing voice.
