Fatherhood

Samantha Elizabeth Wyndam-Price Morgan was a month old and I was going crazy. Father to be was alot easier than being an actual Father; late night crying, smelly diapers, and a mother of my child who still didn't want to call our parents. I felt horrible every day I played with Sammy because I would think of my mother and how excited she'd be. Last time we'd talked I was running away from an apocalypse. Lilah and I's bundle of joy was truely spoiled. On the farthest wall was a ceiling to floor bookshelf with every book to help infant brain development. Lilah usually read her those while I would sneak her into my office to show her different demons. Lilah and I would take her to the beach or the park for some quality family time. Life was perfect until someone from my past showed up on our doorstep. When I saw her I couldn't speak.
'Nice to see you too Wesley.', hearing her speak forced me to realize she in fact was real.
"Hello Winifred."

"H-how did you find me?", I asked in astonishment. I wasn't the only one time was kind to. Fred was taller, filled out, and her brunette waves were pulled up into a bun. She looked adorable with her glasses and an image of Lilah wearing the school girl outfit popped into my head...then I heard her voice. I stepped aside to let Fred in."Luv...you remember Fred...", talk about cut the tension with a knife.

Fred looked at him. "I did a little digging and found you it wasn't too hard to track you down really.." She looked past him at the sound of a familar voice. Fred shrunk back a little at the endearmet Wes used, when she saw that he was taking to Lilah. "You're with.. Oh my.. you have a baby?.."


I moved closer to Wes and glared at Fred, who was still standing in our doorway. I tightened my hold on Samantha as I looked at the woman in our doorway. "What is she doing here?" I asked again as Sam tried to wriggle out of my grasp.

"I actually don't know...", I answered as I looked back at Fred. She looked like that shy girl I'd first met rather than the confident woman who was standing before me minutes before. Taking Sam from Lilah I invited Fred in. I noticed her reservation."Fred, please come in.". Following me inside I could hear the astonishment in her silence. When I turned to look at her she was taking in the size of our home."What brings you here though?", I asked as she, Lilah, and I took seats in the living room with Roger. The poor man looked confused but could easily sense the tension between Lilah and Fred.
He tapped Lilah and whispered 'Who's that?'

I watched as Wes took Sam from me, and had Fred come into the house.I silently followed them both into the living room. I smirked at the look on Fred's face as she looked around the house.

Fred looked around the house in awe. "Wow, you have such a beautiful house.." She sat down near Roger, and tried to ignore Lilah all together. She looked at the baby instead. "She's adorable, how old is she? Oh she has your eyes Wes.." She then got to why she was here. "We're stuck on a case and Angel finally broke down and let me come find you. We thought you could help us out, I brought what we have so far on it, maybe you could take a look at them?"</i>

I continued to try and ignore Fred,but I was finiding that next to impossible as she kept talking. I was sitting next to Roger, when he whispered in my ear, wanting to know who she was. "a 'friend' of Wesley's from back in LA." I hissed, as I watched Wes hold sam.

"Yes, course!", I handed Sam to Roger so I could grab the files Fred was handing me."What exactly is going on though?"
I just ignored the tension and stayed away from talking about personal life.

I watched as Wes handed Sam over to Roger,who gladly took her. I sighed as Wes started to go into full research mode. I hated the fact that she was here, it was cutting into our family time. Roger played with Sam,who lukcky her was unffected y this surprise visit.

Fred smiled at the baby girl,as she was handed off to the other man, then turned back to wesley. "Oh just the usual..Angel thinks that Wolfram and Hart are up to something, he just can't figure out what. So he sent me here to see if you could help. They're apparently trying to get ready for some bigritual,that's supposed to take place in abou five days." Fred explained. I took Sam from Roger and told him that I'd be in the nursery.

"A ritual?", this made me concerned. I'd put down the heavy research to better be able to support Lilah emotionally."Does it have something to do with a child?"

Roger sighed at Wesley's question. "Wes maybe you shouldn't.." He knew Wes probably wouldn't listen to him, but he also knew he'd hear about it later from her highness if he didn't try to interject.


Fred frowned when Wes asked his question. "No I don't think it involves a child. why do you ask"

I sat Sam down in the window seat with me and pulled out her favorite book,Cinderella I started to read it to her. I just wanted time away from Wesley having his stupid little mind melding meeting with fred.

"Are you completely sure?", I asked as I lead her upstairs to the study."It's critical that I know."

Fred nodded at his question and followed him upstairs to the study. "I'm sure there's nothing in it about a baby. You're concerned about the baby. And why are you living with Lilah and that other man? who is he anyway?"


Roger went up to the nursery to see Lilah. I looked up when Roger walked into the nursery. "You get sick of the bookworm conention downstairs too?" I ased him as I set the book I'd been reading to Sam down.

'She's adorable in a geeky way though.', he chuckled as he took a seat.'What's the deal with you three anyways?'

"It's complicated.", I sighed as I closed the study door behind us."Lilah is the reason I left LA. We came here and started a family. Roger is her best friend and Sam's godfather."

I narrowed my esyes at Roger. "She is not adorable. She shouldn't even be here, she's going to ruin everything!" I put Sam in her playpen and put the book back. At Roger's raised eyebrow I sighed. "She's the one that Wes spent months pining over, then he realized she wasn't what he wanted or whatever. And before you start yes I know I shouldn't feel threatened by that twig, but there's a small part of me that wonders if he still wants her "

Fred nodded when Wes said it was complicated. She knew that Lilah was his reason for leaving, they'd found out a week after he left. When he said that Roger was Lilah's best friend she couldn't help that laugh that came out. "She has friends? Sorry it's just it's hard to picture.. And Samantha is beautiful really."

Roger was confused, sure Lilah had a few insecurities, but was she really worried about the quiet and polite woman taking Wesley? Lilah had often stayed away from the topic of her and Wes' 'bad days' but he couldn't believe the twig thin brunette upstairs had come between Lilah and Wes.
'I can only imagine his ways before you but....you're actually jealous...', Roger replied holding back a smirk.

Tightening my jaw I glared at Fred."I won't tolerate you talking about the mother of my child that way.", taking a breath to calm myself I let out a sigh."Angel has plenty contacts.", I crossed my arms."Why do you guys need me anyways?"

I sighed as Roger started to talk. "Oh it was sad really..and yes." I admitted to him. It was killing me not knowing what he was doing in the study with her. I knew they were probably just talking, but still.


Fred looked at him in slight shock as he defended Lilah. She knew that he'd changed, she just hadn't realized how much until now. "I'm sorry Wesley, and I know Angel has plenty of contacts, but I don't know maybe he just wanted to know you were ok. I guess he thought this was the only way we could get you to see or talk to any of us." She quietly explained.

Roger stared at her in amazement. Of course she got jealous like any other woman on earth but for her to actually admit it shocked him. 'He loves and is in love with you and only you Cupcake.'

"I left because my true instincts kicked in. Just now you guys came looking for me...", I paused."It's been how long..."
