Hello! This is my first fic for this blog. I saw this picture and decided to create something out of it. Let me know what you think. Feedback is greatly appreciated! Might have more parts.
“Mommy, mommy, it’s time to see the stars” the little blue eyed 4 year old said from his perch on the floor. Laughing, she got up from the couch placing her journal on the coffee table to pick him up. “Okay, what star are we looking for today, Dyl?” Picking him up so he could look through the telescope. "Daddy’s favorite, crux.“ Dylan said smiling up at her. At 4 Dylan Austin Alwyn-Swift was an exact replica of his father and at this moment smiling up at her with such excitement, she couldn’t help but miss her husband so much. Dylan had his smile, the twinkle in his clear blue eyes and a passion for learning about the stars, about anything really. He was really bright for his age.
"But we saw that one yesterday” she replied putting him on the stool in front of the telescope. Pouting he turned to look at her “ I know, I just miss daddy." ” I know buddy, so do I But he gets back tomorrow, so how about you turn that frown upside down and we look for the stars yeah?“ He smiled then "okay, we’re still going to look at crux.” Shaking her head at the boy she turned to position the telescope. “I’m going to get some cookies and milk so we can look at the stars, and then you little man are going to brush your teeth and get ready for bed now, you don’t want to miss daddy coming home right?” “No, I’m going to be awake when he gets here.” Bringing back the snacks, she set it on the table and went to watch her son look for the star. “Look I found it” he pointed out, she smiled indulgently at him, his excitement infectious. She was happy, but she wished Joe was here to experience these moments with them.
Paying the cab driver, he picked up his suitcase from where the cabbie had put it and hoped they were not asleep yet though it was nearly 11 pm. He’d told Taylor his flight was getting in tomorrow because he wanted to surprise her and Dylan. He had been gone for 2 months this time and being away from his family that long was something he tried to avoid since they found out they were having Dylan. Dropping his suitcase in the foyer, he heard laughter from the living room, he smiled to himself knowing he would find them watching one of Dylan’s movies. He leaned against the door a smile on his face. This was the best feeling in the world coming home to his family, seeing them so happy even though he knew they probably missed him. He walked up behind the couch, leaned over it and whispered in her ear “hi Angel” Startled she jumped from the couch her hand on her heart. “Joe!” Taylor yelped, “daddy” Dylan yelled. “Hey buddy, I missed you soo much” he said as the boy run into his outstretched arms. Picking up the boy he said to him “Wow you’re bigger now. Did you take good care of mommy?” He asked him ruffling his hair something he knew Dylan hated but he couldn’t help it. He made the cutest little pout whenever he tried to fix his hair back which reminded him of Taylor when she did not want to get up in the morning. “I did and we also watched the stars and baked cookies and visited grams Andrea and grandpa Scott and uncle Austin and I made a painting in class” He said, struggling out of his father’s hold so he could go get his painting. “Wow all that?” He turned to smile at his wife. He’d missed them so much and he didn’t want to leave them that long again but that was the life of an oscar-winning actor he guessed. She walked up to him then, slipping her arms around his neck, she kissed him “hello” “ hi” he replied a grin on his face. “ I thought you were getting in tomorrow morning.” “ I was but I changed my flight so I could surprise you and see Dyl before he went to bed.” “well this is the best surprise ever.” She said pressing another kiss to his lips .“ Ew, gross” Dylan said returning with his painting. They both smiled into the kiss then and broke apart. “Wow, this is amazing, you painted it all by yourself?” “Yes, Ms. Russell said I did good.” Joe smiled “yes you did.” They stayed on the couch for the next 15 mins together just catching up. “It’s time for bed now little man"Taylor said to the four year old. "But I’m not tired and daddy just got home,"he said yawning
"Okay buddy, how about I tuck you in and then we spend all day together tomorrow just the three of us, how’s that sound” Joe remarked noticing that the boy was already falling asleep on the plush carpet. He picked up his sleeping son and turned to Taylor “I’m tucking this not-sleepy baby in and then you and I have some catching up to do.” He said winking at her and left to go put the boy to bed.
