dino, enma, byakuran and xanxus with pregnant s/o?
His initial reaction to the news was terror. Sheer, absolute, mind numbing terror.
It will take him several hours before he calms down and all throughout an endless loop of questions will prey on his mind.
What was he going to do? Was he going to be a good father? What if the baby didn’t like him?! What if you didn’t take to the pregnancy? What if you died?
It took Romario and a few of his subordinates to tell Dino it was going to be alright. It took you finding him and holding his head against your stomach to to assure him everything was going to be alright. He’s just thankful Reborn wasn’t there to bitch slap him back to his senses.
You tell him you love him. You will tell him this was the greatest thing he had ever given you. You will thank him and promise him you’ll do anything to be a good mother.
Your promises will eventually make him realize just how happy he was and as he looked into your eyes and saw the happiness there he would sweep you off your feet and twirl you around amidst laughter and claps from his subordinates.
During the months that follow he will be extremely attentive. He would make sure to never miss a doctor’s appointment.
Dino is a protective husband and would double security around you.
The first real hurdle during the pregnancy would be you yelling at him for treating you like a porcelain doll that could break any minute to which you will feel guilty for and start crying about. As soon as the doctor explains it was just because of the hormones he’ll relax and try to tone down his protectiveness.
This will be the hardest thing he will ever have to do.
You will probably never understand just what your pregnancy means to him.
The arms that clutched you close after you told him about the news might have been interpreted as joy but that hold was also rife with desperation and fear.
On one hand he was overjoyed. He had lost his family at such a young age and although he loved Adel and the Simon his loss had prevented him from allowing himself the intimacy of a real family with them. On the other hand he was terrified. It was enough that he had to ensure you were protected but now the two of you will be adding a helpless little infant who can’t even take care of itself in this world.
Despite all that he will make every effort to keep you comfortable and do his best to be the best husband and father anyone could ever have.
But since he’s Enma things won’t be as easy for him as things should be, Mafia don or not.
He’d be jumping up and down running to the kitchen to get you that mac and cheese toast dipped in thick tomato soup and wasabi you wanted at three in the morning. He would be too worried about you and the baby to even think about asking someone else to do it for him.
He would give in to your every demand. One yell was all Enma would need to come to your side and ask what you needed from him. When you start crying hysterically after realizing what you just did he’d panic even more and try to comfort you by hugging you not really getting the hang of your hormones just yet.
Enma will often find himself going to Adel for advice on how to treat you better and keep you happy. To which Adel would advise him to take all your moods in stride because after the pregnancy you will soon be back to your sweet, soft spoken self again.
It’s a really good thing Enma is not the complaining type or attending to your needs while you’re bearing his child would have driven him insane.
Byakuran is a smart man and you could say what makes him scary is the fact that you could never really catch him with his pants down. He is reputed to be a man who is always one step ahead of his enemies. A white devil come to lay you to waste!
So he knew for a fact that his hands are tied the moment you told him you are pregnant with his child.
He would, of course, make sure you have everything you need.
He will keep you safe from anything that might harm you. He of all people should know what other people are capable of if they wanted to hurt an enemy they hated.
He would build a fortress around you. Have Spanner and Shouichi build walls of armored steel in the guise of beautiful marble to protect you.
He would have only his most trusted Guardians buy and bring you your food. They would have it all delivered and have your personal doctor and nutritionist look over them to make sure they were good for you and that they were all safe. He would even pull some strings and have Bianchi be your personal food taster since she’s immune to most poisons and would be able to detect them with just a sniff.
He will meet your ever changing moods with his ever cheerful smile and do nothing but agree with you even though you were being unreasonable and irritated him to no end. He will then take out his annoyance and anger on any enemies with more than his usual viciousness since he can’t take his anger out on you.
He will keep himself from your bed but will come and hold you if you demand it of him which you will usually have to do via phone.
He knows you need sweet, encouraging words during the most emotional parts of your pregnancy and he’ll be very good at dispensing them. They will come to his tongue as easily as the marshmallows he loves to eat.
Xanxus is the kind of man who watches his limits when it comes to you.
He’s a harsh man but he cares about you and having his child grow inside you makes him feel he should protect you from everything, including his tendency to forget himself in anger when something displeases him.
He will keep himself away during your worst moods. Sleep in his office while you sleep in his room making sure you had guards outside all night long to keep you safe so he could protect you from himself.
He will have Lussuria personally see to your diet and make sure you ate to your heart’s content.
He will have Squalo and Mammon run interference when you are in one of your nastier moods and coincidentally bear the brunt of your uncontrollable pregnancy emotions.
It might seem heartless but then few could really see how Xanxus was after everyone who mattered to him has closed their eyes and slept under his protection.
Though he might keep himself away from you he would be there to watch you as you slept. Watching you with eyes half drowning in fear and awe that he had managed to create a life instead of destroying it for once.
Despite what his Guardians might think (probably barring Squalo) he would have doubts about his capabilities of being a good father.
When he feels restless because of these brooding, alarming thoughts he would often prowl the grounds outside your room to guard you while you slept.
And only when you wept and cried out your need for him would he allow himself to hold you in his arms fearing he would break you.
OH MY GOD um well. The things I most needed to learn:
You don’t have to have one job for the rest of your life. Whatever you pick now should pay the bills/be somewhat interesting/allow you to sleep if possible, but it doesn’t have to be your perfect job. Even if you’re stuck behind a counter, you can be writing stories in your head and developing persistence and learning confidence in crazy customer situations.
College provides a lot of people interaction, but after that your twenties can be lonely. People move around a lot. Take a class, join a fandom, text somebody. You will find your people in time.
Try to make yourself one thing to eat every day. Make tea. Make an omelette. Make a toasted cheese sandwich with tomato. Making food is one of the great pleasures of post-school life and it makes me feel calmer and more capable.
Thrift stores are awesome if you have your own room/apartment/etc. for the first time and have no idea how to actually furnish it on your tiny or nonexistent salary. So are dollar stores and garage sales and roadside pickup days. And you end up with a more interesting home. Same goes for your bookshelf and your wardrobe.
Do apply for food and medical insurance assistance if you need it and it’s available. We inherited a genuinely awful economy. The help’s there for a reason.
If you’re going to splurge, splurge on experiences. Studies show a roadtrip or a theater night contribute more to happiness than stuff does.
If you’re used to staying up late studying/talking at college and need help sleeping earlier at night, try putting out most of the lights an hour before bed (helps with melatonin production) and cutting out coffee past lunchtime. And even if you’re still awake, just lying there with your eyes closed still rests your mind.
If you’re anxious/depressed from all the change (not to the point of needing meds, just run-of-the-mill bad feelings) fresh air, drinking water, deep slow breathing, meditation apps and dancing/yoga/stretching all really do help. Do one thing to bring you back into your body and the present moment. Don’t be afraid to sit with bad feelings. Don’t be afraid to tell a friend you’re scared.
It’s okay if you can’t do the stuff on this list. It’s okay if you skip the laundry and forget to pay bills and cry over your taxes. It’s okay to learn slowly. Everyone is.
All you have to do is love yourself and the people around you as well as you can, and you’ll be a successful adult.
