She noticed Charity's expression shift. "Something wrong?"

She shrugged. "No? Not really? Thomas is an adult, and is... clearly owning that. He wants to make his own decisions. But they aren't decisions I would choose for him."

She nodded slowly. "Well... sometimes you learn best through your greatest mistakes."

She shrugged. She knew Thomas would probably have his share of mistakes in life.

"By the way- have you decided if you go back to Hogwarts when school goes back in session?"

She shook her head. "I won't be," she said. "My siblings need some space, I think," she said. "Ash got us a little place not too far from Hogsmeade. We'll live there during the school year, since he's still teaching."

She shrugged. "Doubtful," she said. "There's not space in the cottage for six of us. So we'll go back to the castle, I'm sure. Ash's... castle, that is..."

It had been a few hours since she'd checked on Teal, who'd given birth earlier that morning. She walked in. "How is everyone doing?"

 – 22:00, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

"I am doing fine, Healer Finch, thank you." Smiling through exhaustion Teal was slow to take her eyes off the little bundle of joy cradled in her arms. "I think... I think Conrad is doing just fine too."

He was positioned just behind Teal, watching protectively.

 – 22:03, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

She smiled. "That's good to hear," she said. She handed Benjamin a sheet of paper. "We got the birth certificate all signed and everything, so that's yours to keep."

He stirred at the sound of his father's voice. Swiping at the air, and yawning as he struggled to open his eyes.

She giggled softly looking down at her son's beautiful eyes as they tried to focus on her. She glanced up at Benjamin and smiled wordlessly trying to communicate how excellent they were at conceiving a child, on the first try no less.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 22:11, August 2, 2015 (UTC)~

He took the certificate from Hope, setting it down on the table. "Thank you," he said, moving back to Teal, looking down at her with great affection.

"If you need me for any reason, don't hesitate to come find me," she said as she slipped out of the room. She hoped Mary wouldn't wander in here today...

 – 22:22, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

She waited for Hope to leave before saying anything else. "He is absolutely perfect." She lightly stroked Conrad's tiny baby forehead.

He laughed in a shrill sort of way kicking his legs, and waving his arms.

He pressed a kiss to her forehead. "He's perfect. And so are you."

 – 22:25, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

She sighed, smiling, and blinking slowly. "You're only saying that because you know I want to hear it." She chuckled weakly.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 22:26, August 2, 2015 (UTC)~

He raised his eyebrows. "Is that what you really think?"

 – 22:29, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

"After spending about eight hours bringing our son into the world. I am no where near perfect." She nodded "So. Yes. I really think that."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 22:31, August 2, 2015 (UTC)~

"And it's the fact that you did spend eight hours bringing him into the world that I do find you, in this moment... and every moment in those eight hours, to be perfect."

"Always the charmer." She smiled shaking her head. "Do you want to hold him?"

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 22:36, August 2, 2015 (UTC)~

He looked a bit unsure. "If... he wants me to?"



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 22:39, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

"Benjamin." She laughed softly. "He is not going to tell you what he wants yet. You should still become familiar with the feeling of your son in your arms." She looked down at Conrad before looking up at Benjamin.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 22:41, August 2, 2015 (UTC)~

He nodded, reaching out to pick up his son, cradling him in his arms. His expression read a bit "fish out of water", but his body was fairly relaxed.

He wailed, and stared up at his father with large tears in his eyes.

 – 22:47, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

He looked uncertainly at Teal for a lifeline.

 – 22:51, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

She smiled watching. "Do not let him scare you. You are not hurting him, Benjamin. Just hold him. He will be just fine." She nodded. "I promise."


AaronHill6

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 23:42, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

He nodded, looking back at his son. He tried bouncing up and down a little-- he'd seen people do that before with babies...

-“The most tragic thing in the world is a man of genius who is not a man of honor.” George Bernard Shaw

He whined a little. Fussing as he rubbed his tiny fists on his face.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 23:51, August 2, 2015 (UTC)~~

He refrained from telling Teal it didn't seem to be working. He tried shifting him slightly, going from a cradle hold, to holding him against his shoulder, making sure his head was supported.

 – 23:56, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

She kept quiet, trying not to laugh despite how much she wanted to. The sight was adorable. She did not want to make Benjamin feel and more uncomfortable than he already looked.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 01:37, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

Seeing his son relax made him relax a bit more, and he did the bouncing thing a bit more.



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 01:47, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

She giggled quietly, and spoke very softly. "Maybe slow it to a stop?" She smiled.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 02:23, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

"I should take that as a yes?"

 – 02:25, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

"I have no idea what I'm doing," he said. "And... for the first time in my life... I feel like... the fact that I have no idea what I'm doing... it could screw someone else-- him-- over."

 – 02:45, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

"We are not getting a free practice swing at being parents. It is going to be hard, and you are right. We could screw this up. We could go about parenthood disastrously." She paused. "Conrad has a solid foundation. He has you, and he has me. All that matters is that we love him. That we show him what it means to have a true family. You and I will probably always feel like we do not know what we are doing. But, Benjamin? How often does life give you more than you can handle?"

Benjamin Flaherty Department of Magical Law Enforcement - Wizengamont
-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 02:47, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

He let out a slow breath. He knew she was right. "Thank you," he said. "I don't know how you can have gone through labor... and given birth... and still manage to speak such truth. But it is something I will always be grateful for."



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 02:53, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

"You are very welcome." She smiled laughing quietly. "Perhaps it is the lingering essence of you. I have no idea how I do it either. Should I be the one thanking you instead?"


AaronHill6

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 02:55, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

He smiled and reached down slightly to kiss her.



TealPSeawood

She caressed his face gently, and kissed him back ever so softly in return.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 03:04, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

He'd been making sure to hold onto Conrad securely as he'd bent down to kiss her, and after lingering for a moment, he righted himself again.

The sudden movement caused him to babble. He paused to fuss, and rub his face before babbling some more.

 – 03:20, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

She smiled nervously. "Are you sure?" She did not want to let him out of her sight, either of them quite honestly. "I can sleep when he does."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

"I can just stay in here, and hold him while you sleep, if that's better."

 – 03:26, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

"No. You should," She started to yawn, and quickly covered her mouth with her hand. "You should have your time with him, with CJ." She smiled softly, and gestured to the door with her head. "Go ahead. You know where to find me."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

He chuckled softly as he made himself and Conrad comfortable in a rocking chair. "I have no doubt," he said.

 – 03:40, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

She opened her eyes briefly, and looked over at two of the most important people in her life. "I love you." She muttered to both of them her eyelids growing heaving, and a smile playing across her lips as she started to fall asleep.

He babbled and stared at his father wide-eyed the tiny little tip of his tongue darting in and out of his mouth like he was trying to speak.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 03:48, August 3, 2015 (UTC)~

He wasn't entirely certain of what to do-- Conrad wouldn't understand anything he tried to say. He settled for rocking back and forth in the chair.

-“The most tragic thing in the world is a man of genius who is not a man of honor.” George Bernard Shaw

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 04:10, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

He tried to keep his eyes open, and after a hard fought battle, he lost. His eyes stayed closed, and his little chest heaved with every steady, sleepy, breath.
