Bruce Banner Drabble (1.)
Bruce shook his head quickly, brown curls releasing the tiny bits of sand that were trying to hitch a ride with him. His skin was sticky from the salty ocean air and he was sure to be sporting a bright red sunburn for the next week, but he couldn’t care less. He beamed as soon as he felt a small pair of hands grasp at his swimming trunks, tugging and immediately being followed by a whine.
“Daddy! Up!” The tiny blonde begged. Her arms were outstretched as far as they go but they still barely made it to his waist. Bruce chuckled, easily swinging her up and onto his shoulders. He could feel her slump against his back, her fingers wrapped tightly around the towel around his neck. It wasn’t hard to see that the little girl was tired and if he knew Annabelle, sleep would come easily.
“You ready to go find Mama, Belle?”
She nodded gently, swaying side to side with each of his footsteps. It was less than 10 feet away but Annabelle was already a dead weight around his shoulders when he reached the large beach towel. He grinned at the sight of you sprawled out on your back, tummy slightly swollen where the newest Banner was just barely starting to show.
Bruce carefully removed the sleeping toddler from her perch and laid her down next to you. The sun was starting to set now and he knew that you should have been on the road an hour ago, but the scene was too precious to ignore. After taking a new photo for his screensaver he decided to join you and wrapped his arms around both of his girls.
Life was finally okay.
You didn’t really think I was going to leave for a whole week with nothing for you to read! ;P
