Baby Tim - Part 2
Part two of baby Tim!
This part is written in the reader point of view
“Alright Mr. Todd, this is everything. These are the background checks for everyone in the building, my personal qualifications, and a layout of everything” You say, walking into the office where Jason and Tim are waiting. You had asked them to come back before the daycare opened in order to get and give information about the care center.
You sit behind a desk a Jason goes over all of the information about Owl Care. Tim wiggles to the floor and toddles over to you, trying to climb into your lap.
“You know, I haven’t seen him be so taken with someone so soon. Not even his older brothers.”
You chuckle, allowing the child to curl into you, just watching his father read, “Well he likes me now, just wait until you try to leave and them we will see how he does” you clear your throat awkwardly, “So Mr. Todd …”
“Just Jason please, or Jay, I’m fine with either”
“Alight, Jason, do you mind me asking why you require our services?”
“I work nights, and I can’t take Timmy to work with me, so I just need someone to be with him while he sleeps, just in case he needs someone” the corner of Jason’s eye twitches, a barely there tell. You believe that he works nights, but you also don’t think that he is telling the whole truth about what he will be doing.
“Of course, does his mother also work nights then?”
“His mother? Oh, no, she um, she isn’t with us anymore”
“I’m very sorry. I didn’t realize …”
“It’s alright, I didn’t know his mother anyway, Timmy is adopted”
Your eyes widened slightly, “Oh! That makes sense” You glance down at Tim and he is looking up at you with wide eyes.
He glances away when you look down at him, but after a minute he glances up at you shyly, “Juice?”
Tim glances over at Jason and giggles, quickly looking back u at you, “Juice, please?”
“Of course, pumpkin!”
You set Tim down on the floor and go to retrieve a box of juice. By the time you get back Jason has already put down all of the papers and is looking at you expectantly. “Done already?”
“Yes. This is a damn nice place, I think that Timmy will like it here”
“Do you want him to start tonight?”
“Is that possible?” Jason looks genuinely surprised
“Of course! I just need your information and the information of an emergency contact in case we can’t get ahold of you”
Jason nods and quickly jots down his information and Alfred’s information. If everyone is out on patrol then Alfred will be the only one available to get to Tim if something happens.
“Well it is now 7! So you can leave him here whenever” You crouch down and look Tim in the eye, “Are we gonna play tonight while daddy goes to work?”
Tim looks away from you and up at Jason, “Daddy?”
Jason slides out of the chair and gathers Tim up into his arms, nuzzle Tim’s downy soft hair, “Yeah buddy, daddy”
Tim throws his arms around Jason’s neck and squeezes gently, and then looks back at you. “Daddy come back?”
You smile, “Yeah, daddy will come get you after work”
Tim nods and takes your hand, waving at Jason, “Bye bye, daddy!”
You can see Jason’s eyes soften every time Tim calls him daddy, like he really didn’t expect to have earned that title, but you can see how much Jason adores this little boy. “Bye, Jason. I will see you tomorrow”
The first thing that you notice about Tim is that he is very smart, almost too smart for his own good. He doesn’t really like the pretend games that a lot of the children his age enjoy, but he does like to build things. He sticks close to you, preferring your company more than the other children, but when a little girl comes over and asks him to play superhero he finally begins to open up.
You watch as the children continue to play until about 9:00 PM, and then you gather them up and bring them to the sleeping room. Each child gets their own bed, and they each get tucked in by you. Tim is the last one to get tucked in, “’m not sleepy Y/N” he mumbles, his eyes already drooping
“That’s okay, sweetheart. Why don’t you lay here quietly then, you can just rest your eyes a little bit”
Tim nods quietly, and cuddles under the blankets. You smile fondly and lean down to gently give him a kiss on his forehead. “Goodnight, Timmy”
The first thing you notice when you walk back out into the play room is that there is a person shaped shadow in the corner. The shadow is small, most likely that of a child, but still it is not less shocking.
It is the newest Robin who steps out of the shadow, “Hello, Y/N. It has been awhile”
You grin and walk over to the fridge, tossing Robin a grape juice box, “I was wondering when the Big Bad Bat would let you visit again”
Robin chuckles, sitting in the armchair beside yours and watching as you turn up the volume on the security feed for the sleeping room.
“He might stop by as well. It seems that you are in the care of a child that I consider a brother”
“Let me guess, Tim?”
“How did you …”
“You act like I haven’t known all of your secret identities for years now, little bird. I knew when Red Robin was changed into a toddler” you chuckle, “Although I was very surprised when Jason Todd, the Red Hood, came here looking for a daycare!”
Damian chuckled and removed his mask “I was quite pleased when Todd informed us of his choice in care facilities. Father was quite angry when he believed that Timothy was left alone in an apartment”
“Your father needs to learn to trust your brother more. He has become Timmy’s father, you should have seen the way he looked at Tim when he was called daddy for the first time”
“Your infatuation with the Red Hood is disgusting. You could do so much better than Todd” Damian sneered
You grin at Damian “You know that you love your brother, Dami. I also know that you would never approve of anyone that I chose, but that you would rather have me with someone you know, than a complete stranger”
Damian sighed, “Unfortunately you are correct in your assumption”
“You have a crush on the Red Hood?”
You whipped around, coming face to face with Jason Todd sans helmet, but he still had on his domino mask. “Umm …”
Jason grinned, “That’s really fucking convenient that you already know about everything”
You look suspiciously at the vigilante, “Why do you say that?”
“Because I was going to ask you on a date when I came to get Timmy I the morning” Jason scratches the back of his head nervously, “So, would you like to go on a date with me?”
You stare at him with wide eyes for a minute, “Y-yes, oh my God, yes!”
Jason grinned, “Awesome!”
At that moment Tim stumbled out of the sleeping room, rubbing one tiny fist against his eye, “Daddy?”
Jason walked over and scooped Tim into his arms, “Hey Timmy”
Tim nuzzled into Jason’s shoulder, “Missed you daddy”
“I missed you too, sweetheart” He tuned Tim so he could see more of the room, “Look, Dami came to visit you too”
“Yes, Timothy, I came to check on your progress”
Tim just grinned excitedly, “Dami!” he squealed and lunged at the current Robin
Damian quickly stepped forward and scooped up the excited toddler. He began to bounce Tim gently, talking about how his father was still trying to find a cure for the de-aging spell that was cast over him.
Jason walked over so he was standing next to you, “In all honesty, I’m kind of hoping that they can’t find a cure. I mean if anyone deserves a second chance at growing up, it’s that kid”
You reach out and take Jason’s hand in yours, “You and me both, Jay, you and me both”
You continue to watch as Damian keeps talking to Tim, and Tim slowly relaxes and falls back asleep. Once he does Damian goes and puts the two year old back to bed, he is putting his domino back into place when he comes back out.
“Goodbye, Y/N, Todd”
Jason leans down and places a gently kiss to your forehead, “I’ll see you tomorrow. Make sure you take care of my little boy”
You close your eyes and when you open them again they are gone.
