Either Will or Nico playing the floor is lava game with Carter and the other walking in the room pretty please? You're amazing!
More Carter. He’s about six
Will jumped to the long “L” side of the couch from the rocking chair hearing it scrape against the hardwood with the momentum of his launch. Carter laughed from his spot on the coffee table and Will grinned. “Hurry up, Carter, the table is sinking, you don’t want to get burned by the lava!” Will held his arms out to catch Carter, but Carter shook his head, yelling a war cry and jumping onto the couch unassisted.
Will laughed as Carter glanced back at the coffee table worriedly. “Papa really liked that coffee table. He’s gonna be sad.” Despite the fact that the table was perfectly fine on in front of them, Carter looked at it sadly before standing up next to Will on the couch.
“Don’t worry, buddy,” Will assured him, “Papa will be so happy that you made it across the lava that he won’t even think about the coffee table.” He lifted Carter up, who squealed and hit Will’s back playfully.
“What about my coffee table?” Nico was drying his hands on a towel and came walking into the room, an amused smile on his face. Will set Carter back down on the couch and Carter shrieked and dashed over to the end of the couch closest to Nico.
“Papa you’re going to get burned in the lava!” Carter launched himself at Nico, who dropped the towel hurriedly to catch his son. Carter must have lept harder then he needed to, because Nico stumbled backwards, catching his hip on a cabinet and sending him sprawling onto the floor. Will winced at the sound of Nico hitting the floor and quickly jumped off the couch.
“Papa! Papa!” Carter was hitting Nico’s chest with an open palm. “You fell into the lava! You’re dead!” Nico huffed and Will carefully pulled Carter off of Nico, setting him on the couch and helping Nico sit up.
“That was quite the jump, little man.” Nico mumbled, rubbing his hip. Will didn’t fell anything broken when he touched it and figured it would probably swell and bruise but that would be the extent of the injury.
“I tried to save you, Papa.” Carter mumbled sheepishly and Nico stood up.
“I see, the floor is lava, hm?” Carter nodded and Nico, albeit a little slow from his tumble, made his way onto the couch. “Well then, we better stay off the floor so we don’t burn.” Carter grinned and Will quickly joined back in on the game, though he made sure Nico wasn’t jumping around just in case. Carter had launched himself at Nico much harder then was necessary and Nico was probably going to be sore for a few days.
“He really does have boundless energy.” Nico commented while Will was sitting next to him trying to catch his breath. “He gets that from you.”
“He gets those sharp features from you.” Nico huffed a short laugh and Will kissed his temple. “Sorry Carter slammed into you.”
“It’s fine, just make sure he doesn’t break my coffee table. That would be the third one.” Will laughed quietly and promised he wouldn’t let Carter break it.
It’s been a really long day
