Face First - Finn Bálor
Request: Are you still doing the baby series? If so you should do a little imagine where Finn is home alone with Ava and he turns around for once second and she slips and falls (she’s like maybe 6 months or so) and he calls Y/N freaking out and all hysterical and you try to calm him down. Idk I think Finn in freak out daddy mode would be cute 😘
A/N: The baby series shall not end! I even plan to extend this while Ava gets older. Bigger milestones such as first day of school, first boyfriend.. Ooh, that’s gonna be a good one. Talk about Finn being SUPER protective. ;) bUT I LOVE THIS IDEA YOU SUGGESTED OMG.
“We’ll be fine, love! Don’t worry about a thing.” Finn assured you as he placed a wet kiss against Ava’s face, watching as she busted out into a rage of giggles. You smiled at the two of them, obsessed with just how cute they were. You reached over and kissed Ava before switching over to pressing your lips against Finn’s. “Call me if you need anything.” You reminded him, poking his chest with your index finger. He smirked, nodding his head. “First on the list.”
You smiled and nodded your head before turning around and exiting out of the door. Finn and Ava watched you out of the window, watching as your car backed out of the driveway. Finn’s eyes focused on his daughter as she looked back at him, a big smile plastered on her face.
“Aren’t you just the cutest?” He cooed. She only smiled bigger. Finn walked over to the middle of the floor where you had Ava’s setup. He placed her down onto the ground, watching as she started crawling towards a toy that caught her attention. Smirking to himself, Finn sighed and went into the kitchen to grab something, being sure to lock the baby gate.
You insisted on getting Ava to walk by eight months, maybe earlier. She had developed faster than the doctor’s even expected. You practiced crawling with her and Finn helped her out with the standing portion. So far, she easily grasped both concepts within weeks.
Finn’s phone went off, signaling he had a text. He glanced back into the living room where Ava was, noticing how she had pulled up and was overlooking the coffee table which faced the window leading to the front yard.
Sami had texted him, asking what he was doing. In response, Finn let his friend know that he was home alone with Ava while you were at a training session in the gym.
Not even turned around for a minute, he heard a crash, and a scream. Finn’s phone was immediately dropped onto the floor as he scrambled into the living room to see Ava toppled over onto the floor face first. “Oh my God,” He started whispering, quickly reaching down to pick the Ava up.
He had no earthly idea if she hit her head on the corner, just fell down or what. Either way, he was at a hysterical point. He had never witnessed her fall and cry this hard before until she was practically holding her breath. “(Y/N),” He exclaimed, racing into the kitchen to grab his phone he dropped into the floor. Thankfully no damage was done to the device. He scrolled through his contacts, searching frantically for your name.
Finn dialed your number, still with a screaming Ava in his grasp. Seconds later, you answered. “Finn, I’ve only been gone fifteen minutes.” You chuckled, but once you heard Ava’s cries on the other end, your heart sank. “Babe, what happened?”
“Uh,” Finn wasn’t able to process his own thoughts. “A-Ava fell down. I turned my back for one second and she fell! I walked into the living room and s-she was face first. Oh my God, I’m a horrible father. How could I be so stupid?! What if she hit her head?! What if,” - “Finn!” You exclaimed, hearing how shaky his voice was. He stopped talking and listened.
“She’s a baby, darling. She’s going to fall down. Check her body to see if there’s any blood or marks. Where was she standing?” You couldn’t help but chuckle softly.
“Coffee table.” Finn responded.
“She couldn’t have hit the corners because I baby-proofed those when she started standing up.” You assured him. “But check her while I’m on the phone.” You breathed out. Bayley was beside you, overhearing the conversation while trying so hard to hold back the fits of laughter when Finn started freaking out.
Finn looked over Ava’s arms, legs, back, and torso perfectly, not seeing a single trace of blood, bruise, but she did have a mark on her face.
“She has a red mark on her face.” Finn announced.
“You said she fell face first?” You questioned. “She probably rubbed her face against the carpet when she fell. Things like this happen, Finn. Does she act fine now?”
Ava had stopped crying, but her eyes were puffy and she heaved slightly in between breaths. “S-She’s fine.” He said, staring at his daughter who leaned her head against his shoulder.
“I’m sorry, but that was cute and hilarious at the same time.” You busted out laughing, Bayley joining you. “Love, it’s not funny!” Finn hissed in annoyance. You smirked through the phone, shaking your head.
“I’m glad you did call me. Some father’s wouldn’t even give a phone call to their wives.”
“I feel like an idiot now, (Y/N).” Finn grumbled. You shook your head, smiling. “I’ll be home in a little while. If she falls again, don’t worry. She’s not going to get hurt. Just a scrape or two, but that comes with their constant wandering.” You breathed out.
