After the war, the Inner Circle spent a lot more time together. They went out for meals or to bars often and passed the time in each others’ company. Because of this, no one thought it odd when Rhys invited them all to a restaurant in the heart of Velaris for dinner.
It was common knowledge that Mor and Feyre drank red wine together at these meals so Mor naturally picked up the wine menu after taking her seat on Feyre’s left. She scanned the list before turning to her friend, asking what she wanted. Feyre’s response had the required reaction.
“I’m not drinking tonight Mor, order what you want.”
Cassian responded, “Are you alright Feyre? Are you sick?”
“No, not sick. I’m pregnant.”
There was a thud as Cassian fell off his chair onto the ground, attracting the attention of everyone in the restaurant. He quickly stood up and braced his hands of the table. “Pregnant?”
It was Rhys that replied, a smirk on his face. “Yes Cassian, pregnant.” He let out a soft chuckle at Cassian’s facial expression.
That night was the night they heard the most from Azriel in their whole friendship - he was constantly asking questions, a huge grin plastered on his face.
Nesta and Elain were blabbering on about their neice or nephew that they were going to have until Rhys chips in and says that regardless of the lack of blood relation, all the inner circle are family therefore Az, Cass, Mor and Amren would all be aunts and uncles to their child. Cassian starts to cry at that since he’s never felt like a proper family - never had a proper family - but thinking of the baby Feysand calling him Uncle Cassian makes him happier than he’s ever been before.
The topic of conversation rarely drifted from the subject of Feyre and Rhys’ child. The couple were bombarded with questions throughout the meal.
When the time finally came for them to leave, no one was willing to leave Feyre’s side, especially Cassian and Mor. They didn’t want to leave their pregnant high lady, even if she would be with Rhys.
Okay so with all the Feyre and Rhys baby talk going around I want to remind everyone that they chose, together, to wait.
Yes they will be great parents one day, but it’s important to remember that they chose not to have kids for a while for themselves.
