Captain Canary - Established relationship
Sometime in an Alternate/Post S2
Sara watched as Ray and Nate played with the rescued children at the park while they waited for the parents. Smiling at their antics, and immensely grateful they’d volunteered to watch the small pack of pre-schoolers.
“Endearing aren’t they?” Amaya asked, stepping up beside her.
“The children?” Sara responded, turning to face the other woman.
She chuckled, “No; I mean the boys.” She smiled fondly toward them, “I mean, warrior or not it’s attractive when a guy is good with children don’t you think?”
Before Sara could reply she felt the familiar presence behind her, Len’s voice breaking in. “Jax says we’re about ready to go, but he needs you to come look something over.”
“Of course.” She motioned to where the children had managed to trip the two men and were currently climbing over them. “Watch the boys?” He offers a simple nod before she walks past him toward the ship.
When the finally retire for the night, safety in the temporal zone once more, Sara tucks easily against Leonard. One of his arms is under her head, fingers tracing aimlessly at the small of her back. For a time they lay in silence, until Sara props herself up on his chest, his brow rising in response. “What’s wrong?” she asks with a frown.
“Nothing,” he tilts his head slightly, “For once a mission went smoothly.”
“And yet, something is still eating at you.” He opens his mouth to reply and she cuts him off, rolling her eyes. “Come on Len, I know you well enough by now to know something is bothering you.” Her brow furrows, “What’s going on?”
He sighs, “Do you want kids?”
“What?” she’s taken off guard at the question.
“I overheard what Amaya said to you earlier, about liking someone who is good with kids.” He shook his head, “And I guess I’d just never thought about it, about asking if you wanted –”
She cuts him off with a short laugh and a rueful smile, sitting up to face him. “I’ve never been very maternal, Laurel was always the one who loved kids.” She shrugs, “Besides, I was turned into a weapon, not exactly the nurturing type.” She watches as he releases an uneven breath, and frowns. “Do you?” her voice pitches slightly.
“Never consider it,” he replies, then offers a small shrug. “After how I was raised, the legacy my family has…What could I offer a kid?” he frowns, “But if you wanted them, if you were avoiding something because of me-“
She gives him a small smile, reaching out to take his hand in hers. “I’ve got you Len,” she motions toward the hall, “Got the team, and all of history to save.” She leans down to press a kiss to his lips, “This is already more than I ever dreamed I could have.”
He laces his fingers with hers, “Me too.” He tugs her back down to his side, and she melts against him once more. He turns to rest his head against the top of hers, “I love you Sara,”
“Love you too,” she replies easily. “And Len?” He hums in answer. “I’ve heard your sister talk about growing up, you raised her, and she turned out pretty amazing.”
He can’t help the small smile, “That she did, though I hardly take credit for it.” He presses a kiss to the top of her head, “And for the record; I’ve seen you taking care of the crew; you’d make a pretty good parent yourself.”
