Aaliyah and Diddy go way back. I knew they knew each other for a hot minute but, it’s not until you go back to check out photos that you realize they go way back! He lost a dear friend, first Biggie then Aaliyah :(
Big thanks to CelebrateAaliyah on IG for the Twitter post Diddy made. I was looking all over for that lol
Aaron Dingle was only human. That’s important to remember. He’s just one human man, with a ridiculously attractive husband at the best of times, but when said husband was holding a tiny baby, well - Aaron’s jaw was about ten seconds from hitting the floor.
They were babysitting Victoria’s little one. It was the first proper day she was back Diddy Diner-ing, since Grace had been born, and so they had the newest addition to the Sudden clan all to themselves for the day.
Robert was a great uncle. He’d talked as though he didn’t have a clue about kids, in all the months Vic was pregnant, having more than his fair share of meltdowns about helping Victoria with her little girl.
She was going it alone, their Vic, and Aaron couldn’t help but feel massively proud of his sister-in-law. It’s not like it had been easy, hadn’t been easy for a single second, but Grace Sugden, his niece, had been the most magical addition to their lives.
Even more so now, Aaron decided as he trudged down the stairs, pausing on the last step so he could watch as Robert bounced around the kitchen with Grace in his arms, still dressed in his pyjamas, and cooing at the little girl.
Six months old, and cute as a button, a photo of Grace fast asleep on Robert’s chest had been his screensaver for the past month or so, making Aaron’s heart melt in his chest every time he checked the time.
“You’re a right little diva sometimes, you know that?” Robert murmured, one of Grace’s tiny hands clasping tightly to his finger. “I remember when your mum was a baby, she was the same. Always crying, your mum - until one of us gave her a cuddle.”
Grace gave a gurgle in response, a content look on her face. She’d clearly just been fed, dozing on Robert’s shoulder.
“It’s okay though, because you’re too cute for me to say know to, aren’t you?” Robert continued, one hand nestled under Grace’s bottom as he crossed the kitchen, flicking the kettle on. “Yes you are, gorgeous. Don’t tell your mum, but you’re my favourite Sugden woman, promise.”
“God, I want you so much right now.”
Robert turned around, eyes wide. “You what?”
Aaron couldn’t stop his face from going absolutely bright purple as he realised he’d spoken aloud, and not in his head, like he’d intended to. “Did I say that out loud?” he blurted, padding down the last step and into their kitchen, feeling a little bit ridiculous, if he was honest.
“You did,” Robert confirmed, unable to hold back his laughter. “This is doing it for you then? The t-shirt covered in baby sick, the dark circles.”
“You always do it for me,” Aaron murmured, stroking a finger across Grace’s cheek, enjoying how the little girl’s mouth turned up into the beginnings of a smile at his touch. “You’re a natural, Rob.”
“You think?” Robert was practically preening, clearly delighted with the praise.
Aaron nodded. “You’d make a great dad.”
(This was always it, always their sore spot. The baby that hadn’t been his, the DNA tests, the clear results. Robert had been adamant, from that day on, that he didn’t want kids of his own, not anymore.)
(Not when he’d fallen so in love with a little boy that hadn’t been his son, in the end.)
Robert didn’t react how he always did, didn’t clam up, look annoyed. He simply grinned at Grace, nuzzling his face against the top of her head, the lavender scented shampoo Victoria always used on her the nicest thing in the world (Aaron knew, from experience, considering the amount of time he spent just holding her.)
“Maybe one day, eh?” Robert said quietly, focus on Grace. “Maybe one day.”
Today brought us our 7th Brawl Newcomer back with Diddy Kong. Now the wait continues on Wario, Zamus, ROB, Meta Knight, Wolf, Pokemon Trainer, Ike, Lucas and Snake to see who is lucky enough to return.
“Tattoos, piercings and she just learned to twerk
She ain’t got a heart or a ass, just her brains
Gotta ask cause her ass on a learning curve
And she love to hurn the berb, I mean burn the word
That’s only legal with a doctors note
Real deep pockets like a doctors coat
Stay fitted like Diddy, hair back tryna rock the boat
She the first mate wanna rock the boat
She never forget to ride like a bicycle
She like planes, trains, chains with icicles
It goes her, blank, blank, and rock & roll
She says, "I know, honey bunny that’s a funny thing.”
Watch her twerk for a goodfella
She money dance with the money team"
Niall: You were all alone, waiting for something interesting to happen. Your boyfriend, Niall, was on tour halfway across the world, and you were lonely and bored. You decided to invite your friends over, and have a karaoke party. Their were about ten of you, and because you all Wanted to sing different songs, you each took turns singing. You are not the best rapper, but for karaoke, you will happily sing. You turned on one of your favorite songs, by Nicki Minaj, High school. You had to warm up for this song though, because you were going to be rapping. Later, after you finished with ‘High School’, it was your turn to sing again. this time you chose My chick bad, by Nicki Minaj and Ludacris and you started rapping again. By the time that you were done with your second song, you heard clapping, coming from the front door. Apparently, you were so loud, you didn’t hear Niall come through the door. He got home early, because he missed you and wanted to spend the rest of the week with you. He was so impressed by your voice and rapping, because you refused to sing in front of him, and now that he has finally heard your rapping and singing, he won’t stop complimenting you, which always made you blush.
Harry: You were doing your normal duties, around the house, to keep you preoccupied while your boyfriend, Harry was at the studio. He was working on his newest album, while you were washing the dishes, cleaning the counters, and cooking dinner for the two of you for when he comes home. He had just left for the studio about two hours ago, so you thought that since no one was with you, you should put on your music. About ten songs later, your favorite song of all time came on, Confident, by Justin Bieber. You knew every word of the song and you were so excited to rap to the song without someone hearing you.—-(Tattoos, piercings and she just learned to twerk She ain’t got a heart or an ass, just her brains Gotta ass cause her ass on a learning curve And she gotta earn the berb, I mean burn the word That’s only legal with a doctors note Real deep pockets like a doctors coat Stay fitted like Diddy, here back tryna rock the boat She the first mate wanna rock the boat She never forget to ride like a bicycle She like planes, trains, chains and I suppose It goes her, blank, blank, and rock & roll She say, “I know, honey bunny that’s a funny thing." Watch her twerk for a goodfella She money dance with the money team), You finally finished the song , to be applauded by Harry, who just arrived, with the other boys for dinner. everyone was staring at you wide eyed and confused.
Liam: You were going to the shower, so happy to be able to relieve stress with rapping and warm water. Liam was in another room, probably still on the phone with the boys, in the family room, many rooms away from the bathroom. You didn’t think he would be able to hear you because he was so deep in conversation about who knows what. You had an opportunity, to sing your heart out in the shower where you probably couldn’t be heard. You were wrong, and you figured this out, when Liam somehow got into the bathroom, after his talk with the boys. You were rapping your favorite part of crooked smile, by J. Cole and TLC.–(They tell me I should fix my grill cause I got money now I ain’t gonna’ sit around and front like I ain’t thought about it A perfect smile is more appealing but it’s funny how My shit is crooked look at how far I done got without it I keep my twisted grill, just to show the kids it’s real We ain’t picture perfect but we worth the picture still I got smart, I got rich, and I got bitches still), was the part that you were singing, until you were interrupted by Liam, who joined you in the shower, unexpectedly, and he was going on and on and on about how amazing your rapping was.
Zayn: Va Va Voom by Nicki Minaj, was playing on the radio in the car, while you were driving home from the grocery store. You were rapping all the parts, so well, but no one knew that you had the talent to rap. Apparently, While you were rapping the part,— (just met a boy, just met a boy when He could become my little problem 'Cause he look like he modeling clothes in Dublin So I think that he gettin’ that Green like Goblin Hear through the grape vine that he hang low), you accidentally butt dialed your boyfriend, Zayn. He was listening to the whole thing on speaker with all the boys. You didn’t find out about, until later that day, when he came home with the other boys, and immediately started to question your ability to rap. they were so in awe of your talent, they couldn’t believe that someone so small and cute, could cuss and rap the dirty parts so perfectly.
Louis: You were not the best rapper ever, but there was one song that you could rap to, at any time, it was so easy for you to rap it, that you could probably do it sleeping. The song was "The fresh prince of Bel-air”. You first able to sing the whole thing when you were about twelve years old, and to this day that is the only song that you will ever even try to rap to. You were playing truth or dare with Louis, and you chose dare. Of course, he had to dare to to rap, because he never heard you before. So you started your rapping, but instead of doing the whole song, you ended at (I begged and pleaded with her day after day But she packed my suit case and sent me on my way She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket. I put my Walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it’.)Louis was getting into the music, so he decided to rap the next part, then you started to rap again, and you finally finished the whole song together.
