If We Lay a Strong Enough Foundation
After discovering her pregnancy, Emma vows to make the most of things, not just with her pregnancy, but also Killian.
A/N- This prompt actually came from my husband, who prompted me to write about Emma discovering she was pregnant for the entirety of 5b. So, here’s to you, panda bear.
“…and Prince Charles and Princess Leia danced around the ballroom, both forgetting their mission in hopes of spending another minute in each other’s arms.”
Emma felt a flutter in belly as she recounted the story of her and Killian’s first dance, the once recorded in Henry’s storybook. She’d read that at around twenty-five weeks, the fetus would begin to respond to familiar voices. She was delighted to find it to be true, her developing daughter moving about with each word she read.
When Emma had been pregnant with Henry, she’d done her best to ignore those sort of developmental milestones, unwilling to grow further attached to the infant she knew she would be unable to keep. She didn’t read pregnancy books, and paid little attention to the ultrasounds she’d received when ushered to the prison’s infirmary. Over the years, Emma grew to regret that ignorance, especially after Henry reemerged into her life.
She vowed not to make the same mistake the second time around.
