“Keith what if this is a bad idea! What if we mess them up what if-“
Lance was cut off my Keith taking his hands. “Lance babe light of my life, shut up. We both agreed this is what we wanted.”
Lance took a long shuddering breath.
Him and Keith had been married five years now. They decided to take the next step…
“I know but… what if I mess them up?” Lance asked looking alarmed as the timer counted down to the last ten seconds.
“Your amazing, and whatever happens I know we can handle this.” Keith smiled kissing Lance on the cheek.
About a month ago Lance had brought up how much he missed home and being surrounded by a big happy family.
That brought on Keith to ask if Lance ever wanted to have kids.
“I’d be lying if I said I never wanted them but beyond finding a space adoption agency we don’t really have many options.” Lance sighed.
“Actually I may be able to help you with that.” Coran announced.
So that’s how Keith and Lance found themselves having their dna added together to have a baby like they wanted.
It had been a long month of anxious waiting.
Keith had to practically drag Lance to bed after a week of refusing to leave the incubation room.
Lance was beyond excited and just couldn’t wait to meet his new son or daughter.
Now as the final seconds ticked down Lance was of course still excited but also terrified.
“No matter what Keith… I love you and I’ll love the baby.” Lance said as he held Keith’s hand as the pod hissed open.
“Ah I can’t look!” Lance yelled turning away.
He didn’t turn around. He just couldn’t do it just yet!
“Lance seriously look at her.”
Lance turned around to see Keith holding a tiny baby in his arms. He felt his heart skip a beat as he looked down at her.
She had tufts of black hair and deep purple eyes that seemed to look right into Lance’s souls.
He felt tears form in his eyes as he reached out with shaking hands to take his daughter.
“Oh God shes so beautiful.” Lance sobbed as he smiled even wider.
Her skin was tanned with a scattering of pale marks going on a diagonal line across her face. He little arms and chest also had the splattering of pale.
“She’s like me.” Lance laughed kissing her on the forehead.
“Yeah, I could t of hoped for better.” Keith put his arm around his husbands shoulders. “She needs a name.”
“I know the perfect one.” Lance smiled.”
He shifted her in his arms “how about Mariposa.”
Keith hugged Lance just a little tighter “that’s perfect. Our beautiful little butterfly.”
