[ hey! first request! :D this was asked for by @penthegreenfox and this song was really soft and nice, i loved it! Though, I had to change the lyric a little, I’m sorry. ]
“If it weren’t your kid, you would give into doubt.”
“David, we can’t take care of him, he’s not our kid!” Gwen yelled, arms crossed.
“He may as well be, Gwen! His parents didn’t come for him on Parent’s Day, they’re not here to pick him up now, are they? It’s 5:00 pm, all the other kids have been picked up already!!”
Gwen pinched the bridge of her nose. “David— we can’t afford a kid. You know that.”
“I know Gwen, but—“
“But nothing, David!! He’s not your kid—“
“IF HE WEREN’T MY KID, I WOULD GIVE INTO DOUBT, GWEN!!”
Gwen jumped at David’s tone. She took a glance at his face. He was a pale red, the beginnings of anger showing. His arms are taut at his sides.
“I… I know I’m not his real dad. That’s a no brainer. But I am NOT about to let him go back to neglectful parents and have him suffer for the rest of his god damn life and become even more bitter than he is now. I want to give him a home. A family. Please Gwen. Please.”
She looks to the side, arms slowly relaxing and dropping. A sigh escapes her lips.
“I…. Fine. We’ll go to Social Services after we clean up and become his foster parents, okay?” she said, finally looking at David.
David’s eyes widened, and he grinned. “Thank you, thank you, thank you!” he wrapped her up in a hug, pressing a kiss to her lips. She kissed back, surprised but welcoming it nonetheless. A whole summer sharing only soft, hidden kisses made a real one that much better. He pulled back, his smile softer.
“We’ll figure this out, okay Gwen?” he said softly, one hand moving down to intertwine with hers. “I promise.”
