Hi if you still doing prompts I was wondering if you could write something about Fitzsimmons and Evelyn with a little brother or sister. Thanks :)
Hi, thanks for the prompt! :)
This is set not long after this fic, about the journey of Fitzsimmons during Jemma’s first pregnancy, but it can also be read alone.
“Now, do you see this picture, sweetheart?” Jemma pushed the
very first sonogram she’d ever had done, right after she’d found out about
being pregnant with Evelyn, down the length of their coffee table to where
Evelyn was perched on the couch beside her.
Evelyn leaned forward, studying the picture in contemplative silence, before she looked curiously up at her mother for an explanation. “What?” she asked, pointing to the picture with one little finger. ‘What’ was Evelyn’s favorite word to use, and one that she tended to use liberally – she was always pointing to every little thing, prompting either one of her parents to explain it to her until she was satisfied.
“This is a picture of inside Mummy’s belly,” she explained, tapping the black and white photo. “And do you see this little circle here?” She traced a fingertip around the little dot of light in the middle of the sonogram. When Evelyn squinted at it, then nodded, she went on, “That was you, Evelyn. This is a picture of when you were growing in Mummy’s belly.”
Her eyes wide with surprised curiosity at the new information, Evelyn leaned in further to study the picture once more. From the way she was frowning and narrowing her eyes, it was clear that she didn’t quite understand the concept of being that little dot of light inside Jemma’s stomach.
“And if that was what you looked like in Mummy’s belly,” Fitz started from Evelyn’s other side on the couch, laying an almost identical photo down on the coffee table beside it, “What d’you think this is, Evie?”
Evelyn’s frown deepened, her little brow furrowing as she glanced back and forth between the two sonograms, lying side-by-side. After a long, silent moment, she sat back and gazed up at her father, obviously expecting an explanation for what she couldn’t determine herself.
“This is what Mummy’s belly looks like now,” Fitz explained, tapping the newer picture, “with the new baby that’s growing inside of her, right at this moment. And that means that you’re going to be having a baby brother or sister sometime next year.”
