DAD!McCree x child reader
Reader is McCrees’s biological child
You sit up quickly and yelp a tiny bit.
You just had a nightmare. One to scary for your young mind to really comprehend. Tears welled up slightly as you clutched your brown blanket for dear life.
You couldn’t remember what it even was it was so terrifying.
You look around your dark room. The only light source being a cowboy hat night light by the door
You slowly made it out of bed but the second you touched the floor it turned into as much of a sprint a possible before getting to the door and hopping a little to get the handle.
You wanted. No you needed your Dad right now
You poked your head out into the hallways of watchpoint Gibraltar. You had never walked around the island by yourself and you did not want to start now.
Now shivering with fear you looked around. For any familiar face that might lead to your father
“Hm? Y/N” a soothing voice called out putting a delicate hand on your sholder
Mercy looked at you with some concern after you explained why you couldn’t go back to sleep and why you needed your dad
“Ah. Well im sure he wouldn’t mind a visit from his beloved (Your gender) come now. This way” she smiled as she took your hand
Mercy was like an aunt to you. Loving. Caring. Occasionally spoiling you but always in an appropriate way
You felt safe walking with her
Eventually after what felt like an eternity to your young mind you arrived at the meeting hall. Mercy just opening the door without knocking.
“Jesse you have a visitor” she smiles before you make a mad dash to your father. Gabbing hold of his leg as tight as possible
“Mm? What are ya doin outta bed kiddo” he asked softly instantly putting out his cigar. It was a rule of his to NEVER smoke around you
He picked you up lightly sitting back down one hundred percent of his attention on you causing Soldier 76 to clear his throat to get McCree’s attention
“Yea yea hol on a tick” he says pulling you to his lap “Whas wrong lil one” he asked as you pushed your face into his stomach. He was always a perceptive man. But with you especially
“Can’t sleep?” He asked brushing your hair with his fingers
You nod a little bit tearing up and whimpering a little
“Scary dream I take it?” He said frowning “Wanna tell Pa about it?” He asked wiping a tear off your cheek
You shook your head. You honestly were glad you couldn’t remember that dream.
“Alrighty kiddo. Get nice and comfortable” he smiled taking off his serape and wrapping you in it
“Jesse this is not the best place for a child. This is sensitive info and-”
“Far as im concerned Jack. Best place for my kid is on my lap. Now finish up i gots places to be” he said smirking as he wrapped his human arm around you as you slowly drifted off in your fathers arms
Really. Right now was the most comfortable you think you had ever been in. And you loved every second of it
