‘A One Time Thing’ mini fic. Post epilogue. (Because of course Killian would coach a kid’s hockey team. Of course.)
So this fic comes from ohmyohpioneer messaging me about seeing tiny tots playing hockey, and then it just spiraled out of control and this happened.
So, you know. Enjoy.
It’s far from surprising when Aidan announces that he’s going to play hockey this year.
(Because, naturally, he announces it, rather than asks.)
He’s grown up being carted off to Killian’s games, and Henry’s; and while the men in his life get together to watch sports in general, as Killian, David, and Robin play hockey together, naturally that’s the one they’re most enthused about.
Aidan’s also a very physical child, so it figures he’d choose a sport like hockey, as opposed to, say, golf.
In another completely unsurprising turn of events, it is Killian who worries about it.
“What if he gets hurt?”
Emma rolls her eyes.
“You play hockey. Henry plays hockey. He’s not made of glass.”
(And while it is true—and while it is also true that Aidan is hardly a delicate flower, always wanting to roughhouse and wrestle, forever running at things and jumping off things—still, Killian worries.)
“He’ll be fine, Killian.”
“Of course he will,” he says after a moment. “Because I’ll be coaching.”
