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."

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."

Apr. 2nd, 2007 01:40 am (UTC)
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..."

"And most days I know you're right, but she.." I paused and took a deep breath. "I'm being irrational huh? Okay so she's here no big deal, I mean it's not like she's staying. Oh god.."

Fred just quietly listened to him talk, then sighed. "We tried to find you just after yopu left, but we couldn't find anything, and it's been just over nine months.." She replied softly.

'She wouldn't stay..not here at least. She'll get help from Wes, they'll pull an all night research, he'll find what she needs, and she'll be outta here.', Roger assured her.

"You counted how long I've been gone?", I felt the cold feeling around my heart melt.
notquitegood
Apr. 4th, 2007 02:54 am (UTC)
I looked at Roger with a small smile. "You're right she'll be on the next plane back to LA in no time." I went back over to Sam.

Fred shrugged a little. "Well when you're the only one doing all the research you tend to find ways to keep from going crazy." She gave him a faint smile.

'Exactly.', Roger stated as he watched Lilah play with Sam. He knew he was right but he hoped that Wesley wasn't going to be stupid. Lilah was finally happy and he wanted that for his cupcake. He hadn't seen her close to happy since David died.

"Oh..", I was at a loss for words. I purposely didn't leave a trail, but it was more for safety than anything else. She'd actually took time to look me up, and fly to Italy just to see me. I was touched, Fred always was caring that way."We should get started on the research...", I wanted to keep conversation off us.

Apr. 4th, 2007 03:25 am (UTC)
I nodded and picked Sam up out of the playpen. I handed her to Roger. "Here play with uncle Roger for a few minutes." I went to look for her favorite stuffed bear.


Fred just stood there watching him for a few moments, then nodded when he said they should get to the research. "Yeah we should.." She set the folders she'd brought with her on his desk, then sat down in front of the desk.

"So what exactly do you know?", I asked looking through the files."I've picked up a thing or two lately."

Fred thought about everything thing the team had gone over. "Just that it's a ritual to be performed at exactly midnight next friday. I think it's for a sharak demon, but I could be wrong."

"Well..it's not I have a day job.", I chuckled as I read the ingredients of the ritual.

Fred giggled. "Oh really doing what? Recon demon searches?" She flipped through some more books and files.

"I'm pretty much a PI...like Angel in the early days.", I wasn't really looking at the pages as I flipped through them."Lilah says I should be really careful, with Sam here and all."

Apr. 4th, 2007 11:14 pm (UTC)
I came back into the nursery with Sam's favorite bear. I handed it to her and sat back down at the window seat.


Fred smiled trying hard to be okay with Wesley's new life. "Oh I see only slightly better at it than him." She giggled a little. "And yeah I guess things have really changed.. at least you're happy. You are happy here right?"
forsakenwatcher
Apr. 4th, 2007 11:16 pm (UTC)
"Very.", I replied with a grin as I heard Sam's laughter from down the hall."I have everything I want; loving woman, beautfil child, great work. I couldn't ask for more."

Apr. 4th, 2007 11:41 pm (UTC)
She smiled. "Well at least you're happy" she glanced at him then down at the book she had open. "I guess we never really gave her a chance.."</i> She sighed feeling a little bad for not trying to see past Lilah's job.

"No you didn't.", I snapped. Seeing her pained expression I sighed."Sorry..those months after Connor was gone I was bitter..sliced throat and all."

Apr. 5th, 2007 12:42 am (UTC)
Fred looked at him and sighed deeply. "Yeah.. I know Sorry., maybe I should just go home and tell Angel that you declined. I mean you've got other things, more important things to worry about."


I looked over at Roger, as he played peek - a-boo with Sam. "Maybe I should see how they're doing?"

"I'll research it and send any new information...", I enjoyed my old flame's company but those feelings had left me. Fred held a special place in my heart but those days were gone. I had a new life to live."Here's my cell number.", I scribbled the number on a file and handed it to her."In case of emergencies of course."

'Go ahead.', Roger replied when he tickled Sam.'Just be prepared for research mode Wesley.'

Apr. 5th, 2007 12:57 pm (UTC)
Fred smiled and watched as he wrote down his cell number. "Alright I'll be sure and let Angel know that you're alright and that you'll send anything you find for information." She nodded when he informed her that the cell number was to be used for absolute emergencies only. She walked over to him and kissed him. "Thanks for everything Wesley."


I smiled at Roger as I started to leave the room. "I can handle it." I then walked down the hall and into Wesley's study, just in time to see the twig pull away from Wes. I watched her thank him then she turned to me with a small smile. "Bye Lilah" "Yeah.. bye.." I waited until she left before moving over to Wesley. "What was that all about?" I asked still shocked that little miss science had actualy spoken to me.

When her lips touched my cheek I held her to me for a moment too long. Her body was soft and I could feel the curves age had given her. Her scent filled my nose and I closed my eyes. With a content grin I pulled away to look at her. Pushing a strand of hair out her face I sighed. At times I did wonder what we could have been but that was gone.
"No problem, just call if you need to.", I replied as she walked out. She even said goodbye to Lilah. On her way out the door she glanced back with a small smile and twinkle in her eye. I gave her a little wave before she dissapeared from my sight.
'What was that all about?'
"Nothing.", I answered as I leaned against my desk.

I moved over to him and put my arms around him. "You sure it was nothing?" He looked a little happier since Fred left and I wanted to be mad at him for it, but I just couldn't. "So you going to stay in here and do paperwork, or come be with me and your adorable daughter?"

Apr. 7th, 2007 11:09 pm (UTC)
"I'm going to go be with my sexy wife and adorable daughter.", she looked somewhat shocked at my answer. Pulling her into my lap I kissed her neck. Between the pregancy, Sam's birth, and work Lilah and I hadn't had any personal time."Next weekend we're going on a trip.", I whispered into her ear.

I kissed him back after he answered my question. I pullede away a bit when he mentioned a trip for next weekend. "a trip? Where?"

"Milan maybe...I know it's not that far but you can go shopping, with your new figure.", I poked her in her side content with the little bit of weight she still had from the pregnancy.

I narrowed my eyes at himk a little as he poked me and mentioned my 'new' figure. "Maybe the shopping would be nice.. We could leave Sam with Roger." I sighed and headed for the nursery again not really waiting for Wes to catch up. I was slowly getting used to him just automatically calling me his wife, even though we weren't leagally married.

Following her into Sam's nursery I made my way to our daughter. I thought it would be stranger to adjust but I loved every second of being a father. Despite my love for Sam I was excited to have some alone time with Lilah.
