She'd gotten home early and had been working on a special dinner. She'd set out and lit candles and was working hard in the kitchen.

He came home from work, and upon seeing the ambience, got worried. "Hey honey, I'm home," he called, trying to remember a forgotten important date... their anniversary wasn't for another couple of months...

She'd smile and give him a quick kiss. "Hey, take a minute if you need it...I'll have the food out in a minute or two."

He nodded, moving into the kitchen. "It smells great, sweetie. Am I... missing something or... forgetting something?"

She'd give him a slightly amused look. "I don't know...are you?" Then she'd go back to finishing up the meal and getting things into serving bowls and plates.

He decided to just play it off... it wasn't an anniversary. "Can I help with anything?"



Elle Bagman TB

She'd shake her head setting food on the table. Baby carrots, baby red potatoes, baby corn, and baby back ribs. She'd have a seat and start dishing them plates.

"This looks... absolutely amazing, Elle." He looked around at the food. "Should I get some wine?"

She'd shake her head. "Probably shouldn't." She'd pause taking a bite. "So...we actually have a theme tonight if you'd like to try to puzzle it out."

He furrowed his brow. "No wine?" He looked at the food. "Is that... baby corn?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 18:54, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod taking a bite of it. "It is. It's pretty good."

-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 18:55, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

"Well, what do you want to drink then?" he asked, trying to puzzle through red tomatoes and baby back ribs and the carrots.

"Just water is fine." She'd nod to her glass. "Would you like some of the potatoes?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 18:58, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

"Sure." He looked at the food. "So... red potatoes, and orange carrots and yellow corn..." he looked at her. "Is it like a rainbow thing or something?"

She'd smile clearly amused. "No...but if you want the answer I have a little something for you that could help." She'd pull out a small pale blue package wrapped with a pink bow.


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:03, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

Blue and pink... baby corn... no wine. He looked at her, wondering if he'd guessed it before pulling the bow off and opening up the package.

Inside would be a little white onesie that read "My dad is the best!" She'd be grinning at him like a fool watching closely for his reaction.


AdultThomas2

 – 19:06, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

His face split into a grin. "Really? You're...?" he asked, already standing up to hug her.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management

She'd nod and kiss him being careful not to let him hug her too tight.

He kissed her deeply for a long moment before looking down at her stomach. "How far along are you?"

OOC: Need lunch. Afk for just a bit. :)

"Probably close to 6 weeks. I noticed the missed period and took a test which said no...but I took another one earlier this week and it was positive." She'd grin. "We'll still need to confirm at St. Mungos but I feel different so I'm pretty sure."


AdultThomas2

-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:19, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

He nodded. "Let me know when you make the appointment." He sat back down to dinner. "I'm so excited."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:24, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Me too." She'd watch him curiously. "So...would you like to come to the appointment or...just know when it is?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:25, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

"Come," he said, surprised she had to ask.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:29, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Ok. I'll let you know then."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:32, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

"Did you... really think I wouldn't want to come?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:38, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "I mean...they're just going to take some blood and do some tests to confirm I'm pregnant. It really won't be anything amazing. I figured you'd want to be there when we find out if it's a girl or a boy..." She'd trail off then look at him. "Would you...want to find out early or just...wait and let it be a surprise?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:40, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~~

"Elle, I want to be there at all of the appointments," he said gently, but with enough emphasis that she'd hopefully realize that it meant a good deal to him, to be there to support her. He considered her question. "I guess I'd want to know... helps to plan things. But if you want to have it be a surprise, I could try to wait," he said with a grin.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:43, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd hesitate. "I mean...part of me wants it to be a surprise but...I don't know if I could wait honestly and you're right it does make planning easier." She'd glance around. "Speaking of which...we should probably start looking for a new place so we can move before I get too big."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:44, January 3, 2018 (UTC)

He nodded. "Oh, yeah definitely," he said nodding. "We can do that... as soon as this weekend, if you want?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:46, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Sounds good. I'm thinking a house somewhere...but obviously it can't be too far since you work here in Diagon Alley. Maybe...four bedrooms so we still have a little room to grow if we need it?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:47, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

"I can always Apparate, or add the Apothecary to the Floo Network," he said. "Four?" he asked, a bit surprised. He looked at her curiously. "I guess... we never talked about how big we wanted our family to be. How big were you envisioning?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:51, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd frown slightly. "I mean...with all the issues we've had right now I'm just hoping we can have one healthy one. I figure four bedrooms gives us one for us and a nursery and a room to start decorating for when they're older...and we can use the last one as storage or a guest room and if we need it for another kid we'll have it and if not...not."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:52, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

He blinked. "We need to decorate a room for when they're older.... right away?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:55, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "Maybe not right away but at some point and we could start it so we don't have to try to do it between having an infant or toddler and then trying to have another one in a few years..." She'd pause looking at him curiously. "Unless you just wanted one...? I mean I guess with your large family I always assumed you'd be...interested in a big family too."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:57, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

He shrugged. "I think that having more than one is a good idea, but I didn't want five," he said. "More like... two or three."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:58, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Sounds about right...so what's the issue with four bedrooms then? That's...one for us and three kids?" She'd pause then give him a look. "We're not going to stuff five kids into two bedrooms like your parents did Thomas."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:59, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

He laughed. "I didn't think we would." He paused. "I guess there's no reason to, but I was thinking more along the lines of... maybe two or three. Four just seems... so big." He paused. "But I am used to... very small, too."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:02, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "We'll find a use for the room. We could turn it into a potions room or a home gym or something if we don't need it. I like the idea of a decent sizes place so the kids will have room to play. It has to have some sort of yard...hopefully something decent sized."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:03, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

He nodded. "We'll find that outside... in the country somewhere, maybe," he said. "Don't worry about my commute... magic has lots of ways to make sure it won't be taxing."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:06, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd consider. "I'd...like to see what's nearby first. There may be nothing but...I like being so close to Diagon Alley and everything nearby. Living out in the country sounds..." She'd wrinkle her nose. "I guess I'm just more of a city girl." She'd pause trying to work out how that might work. "I guess...the only way to be close to a magical community and still find a decent house might be Hogsmeade or Godric's Hollow or something else similar..."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:10, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

He nodded. "We could look there." He paused. "There's another community that's sprung up, too." He frowned, trying to remember. "Coral Gates."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:12, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd look interested. "I...haven't heard of it. What's it like?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:14, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

"It's got a lot of things-- a gym, and shops, I think I heard it's near a beach, too. So it's probably outrageously expensive, but I know that with your career... money isn't an issue."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:16, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I mean we're not rich like your sister and Ash...but we could probably afford something decent."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:17, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~

He nodded. "We can look there and Godric's Hollow... see what we like."

OOC: You made it seem like they were probably billionaires with Elle's Quidditch career before...?



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:22, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod and smile. "Sounds like a plan."

OOC: I wasn't thinking billions but million maybe? Ash has a whole corporate empire thing going...Elle's just a Professional Athlete, and honestly she's probably made a bit less the past couple seasons with the Arrows going only so-so. :P I still think she'd be making millions a year though? Does that...track?


AdultThomas2

-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:26, January 3, 2018 (UTC)~~

He grinned. "Anything else we should discuss?"

OOC: I was just confused by the "not rich like your sister and Ash". Either way... money isn't an object for them, and they'd be able to afford.... any house they want. :P
