Home. Sweet. Home.
You had just returned from a business trip that lasted a few days. You only had to go to a different place just for a “meeting” however it felt like forever because all the bosses talked about were the same things they talked about every year. You knew Ashton would be home soon since he texted you after you told him you landed back home that he was finishing some things at the studio and then he would come home. You sigh in relief as you unbutton your jeans and take them off. You slip into comfortable sweatpants and change your top into a baggy shirt that you verified as your husbands, Ashton. Finally to complete your comfortable look, some fuzzy socks with drumsticks all over them. Just then a desperate knock came from the front door. You lightly jog down the stairs and open the old chipped red painted door to find your sister with her little daughter and 4 year old son standing outside.
"Oh my goodness thank god Y/N. I need you. There’s a work emergency and I need someone to watch the kids. Can you please?" You nod quickly with alertness and take Greg, Harriet who was in her carriage and her bag from her hands. You kiss her cheek and she runs off after telling you quickly everything they needed even though you already knew since you babysat them many times. You carry the two kids inside with their bags and set them up in the family room after taking Harriet out of her carriage.
"All right Greg. What do you want to do?" He sifts through the Spider-man backpack he brought filled with toys for him as well as Harriet and pulled out a Lego build box that contained a Spaceship.
"I want to build this with Uncle Ashy." He says in a tone filled with excitement. Greg absolutely LOVED Ashton and every time Ashton was around Greg would be right at his side. Greg even liked to dress like Ashton. Today he was sporting black pants and a cute little grey ACDC shirt with little black converse.
"Aw sweetie. Uncle Ashton isn’t here right now. When he gets home-" Just then the front door opened up and heavy footsteps along with the clatter of keys on the table right by the door followed. Both of you knew who it was and Greg gasped and widened his eyes. Ashton appeared from the foyer and clearly looked tired from a long day.
"Uncle Ash!" Greg yelled loudly as he ran to Ashton. Ashton glanced over at Greg and as soon as their eyes met his personality went from tired and groggy to awake and bubbly.
"Greggy!!" He scoops Greg up from the couch and gives him a huge hug. He keeps Greg up on his hip and then leans down to kiss you before sitting beside you on the love seat.
"Hello sweetheart, I missed you so much." Ashton greets you with love and kisses your forehead twice before turning his attention to Greg.
"So bud, what do you want to do?"
"I brought Legos! Can we build it and listen to music." Ashton’s eyes light up and takes the box from Greg’s hands.
"Of course we can. Come on let’s go." He takes Greg and the box to the dining room and sits Greg down in on chair after putting a pillow on the seat to make Greg sit higher and then grabs a chair for himself. Meanwhile Harriet started to get fussy so you heat up her bottle and then test the milk to see if it’s the right temperature before feeding her. The giggles of your husband and your nephew in the other room echo throughout the house as you smile while feeding Harriet.
"Uncle Ash I hava go potty." The sound of wood chaffing against the hardwood floor makes it’s way into the kitchen followed by the pattering of four year old footsteps running to the bathroom and then heavier footsteps coming from a 5 year old trapped inside a man in his early twenties.
"So Y/N. Why are the kids here today? I didn’t know we were babysitting today." He says taking Harriet from your arms and bottle feeding her. You couldn’t help but stare at his toned arms as he held Harriet. Strong biceps, arm veins, tan. You were lucky to have your husband.
"Y/N. Babe. I know I’m irresistible but please. Calm yourself." He jokes causing you to get flustered which he calms you down with a gentle peck on the cheek.
"Oh stop it. And Y/S/N had an emergency at work so she dropped the kids off here. I’m sorry. I thought you wouldn’t mind…" You trail off.
"Oh I don’t mind Y/N. I just didn’t know. You know I love Greggy and little Harriet." He scrunched up his nose and smiles at Harriet when he says her name and she smiles too. It just now dawned on you that Ashton would make a great father. You already knew he would but now was different. You couldn’t quite explain it this time.
You hear the toilet flush from the bathroom and Ashton kisses your nose before handing Harriet back to you so you can finish feeding her. When you finish, you carry her into the dining room to see Ash and Greg putting together the lego kit. You chuckle and burp Harriet before joining them in what you like to claim as supervising since you couldn’t help in any other way. You look down at Ashton and he looks at you with eyes full of love.
"I love you Y/N." He says before pecking your cheek.
"Ew! Uncle Ashy that’s gross!" Greg exclaims before covering his eyes. You laugh and kiss Greg on the tip of his head, then take Harriet out of the room to set up the pack and play for her nap.
"Sweetheart hold on let me help you out." Ash says before getting up and rushing ahead of you to put up the pack and play so you didn’t have to do it yourself. You blush at his swiftness and he kisses your cheek while passing by you to return to Greg. These days with the kids were always great because it made you feel like you had a family with Ashton. And you loved thinking about that.
~~~ Later in the Day ~~~
Eventually Greg falls asleep in the guest bedroom and Harriet in the pack and play you had in the house for her. You now had Ashton all to your self. The whole afternoon consisted of Legos, playing outside, tickle fits, eating, more Legos, and toys. It was tiring and you mentally praise your sister for being such a good mom.
"Babe, come here." You pad into the master bedroom where Ashton is laying in the bed, the green duvet covering his chest so only his arms, shoulders and up were showing. You could tell something was on his mind since he was staring at the ceiling and laying on his back with his fingers laced together on top of his sternum. You move over to the bed and look down at the man you cherish as your husband. He was perfect. You both were still young and his bands career is rising higher and higher through the hours of the day. He was successful and always supporting you with the house and paying for groceries and your clothes even when you protested that you could be fine on your own. That’s one of the things you loved about him. Was that he was kind and always had you on his mind.
"What is it honey?" He pouts his lip ever so slightly and you knew you were facing a tired Ash, and tired Ash means clingy Ash, and clingy Ash made super cuddly Ash. You groan knowing what he was up to which was starting to try to pull you down to him so he could hold you super close to him.
"Come here." He whispers in a husky voice, another symptom of his sleepiness. You crawl towards him so he can grab you and pull you close. As soon as he nuzzles his head in the crook of your neck, a knock comes from the door indicating your sister was here to pick up the kids. You unwrap yourself from his grip and walk down the stairs to the front door and let her in. As she gathers her things, you help her strap the kids into the car quietly.
"Thank you Y/N. You were a lifesaver!" She says as she gets into her car and then drives away. You go back inside the house and lock the door and turn off all the lights.
"Y/N, bring up some water please." You hear Ashton call from the bedroom. Even though he had money and you were well covered in money too, you both decided on living in a smaller place. Not a huge mansion like most celebrities. Your house was still normal sized and had a pool and some other really cool rooms but you both were never into the huge extravagance of a house. You return to the bedroom and now he is sitting upright at the edge of the bed with his head in his hands, hunched over.
"Honey what’s wrong? Are you sick?" You rush over to him and crouch down so you can see his face from underneath. He groans and pulls away from you and lays out on the bed.
"No just thinking."
"Us." You stay silent in fear. What could be going on with our relationship. You really didn’t want a fight especially after a good day like today.
"I mean, we have been married for a little over a year now. And I just…. Nevermind it’s stupid." You crawl onto the bed and grab his hand.
"Nothing is stupid. Honey we need to talk things out. Make things work." He sighs and pulls you onto his lap.
"I’ve just been thinking that… It would be nice… I mean if you want to go through with this…" He pauses.
"I’ve just been thinking I want to have a baby with you." He blurts out quickly. You sit there in shock not knowing how to react.
"Come again?" You say still in disbelief.
"I just want to know if you’re gonna want to have kids with me. And when we can have one." You smile and tears brim in your eyes.
"Ashton Fletcher Irwin, I want nothing more than to start a family with you. You know what let’s have a baby." You say full of excitement.
"Right now?" He grins also excited from the words that just came from your mouth. You bite your lip and nod.
"Yeah. Right now."
