Faint, slightly irritating rumbling sounds rang in my ears, slowly pulling me out of my otherwise heavy sleep and forced my sore eyes to blink a few times, before being able to open them fully. At first, everything seemed blurry and the noises surrounding me seemed rather unfamiliar.
Slowly, waking up fully, I found myself laying in Shawn’s lap with my feet across the empty seat, I should have been sitting in.
okay but can you imagine the hoods spending the day at the beach and baby hood is super excited bc she likes the beach and just saw moana and the movie had the ocean and so many pretty colours and she’s just super happy to be near the water
so you and calum get to the beach and baby hood is struggling to go to the water and doesn’t like having to wait while mama hood puts on sunscreen and baby hood is just chillin in her pink bathing suit and her tush is big and fat bc of her swim diaper and calum puts on her bucket hat to keep the sun off her face but it hides all her curls that she got from him
but FINALLY she’s able to go to the water and she’s waddling her way down the sand (making pit stops to play in it bc the walk is far from where their towels are to the water) and calum is slowly following her and is playing in the sand trying to make a sand castle only for baby hood to get up and continue her walk to the water and when she gets there she just stands at the edge and giggles when the water reaches her toes because it’s cold
it takes her a little bit but when she starts to walk into the water calum scoops her up and walks in himself stopping when he’s knees deep and dipping baby hood in, her squeals of joy echoing down the beach, and he swings her around and plops her in the water only to spring her back up again but once baby hood seems to be okay with the cold water he puts half of her body in and it’s only okay bc daddy is holding onto her and nothing bad happens around daddy
soon you follow and baby hood is squealing to be in your arms so when she’s transferred over calum dips into the water, his curls dripping wet and glistening in the summer sun, and he’s making bubbles under water to try and make baby hood laugh and she’s trying to grab them
But the day eventually comes to an end and you, calum and baby hood walked up to the pier and had a quick dinner at the local fish and chips stop and by the end baby hoods eyes are fluttering closed but she’s trying to stay awake because if she does maybe daddy will take her back to the water but eventually she passes out on calums chest and he’s looking like he couldn’t be better even thought he has a one year old drooling on his chest and there’s sand in his hair and there is about a hour and a half ride home but he’s here with his two favourite girls and life can’t seem to get any better for him
he softly deposits baby hood into her stroller and stands up, throwing his arms in the air and stretching his muscles, a loud yawn escaping from him “maybe it’s time for you to take a nap too?” you mumble, softly pulling baby hoods blanket up to her chest as she snoozes away and a soft chuckle comes from calum as he leans down and places a sweet kiss on your lips “nah I still got a few more hours with my two favourite girls”

author’s note: GUESS WHO’S BACK, BACK AGAIN? BERRY’S BACK, TELL A FRIEND. welcome to the first installment of my college!shawn series, which takes place during Y/N’s (that’s you) freshman year. it’s got fluff, angst, and some pretty stupid decisions on everyone’s part. title from “shot down” by khalid, as per a recommendation from @light-up-shawn. enjoy.
Upon your arrival to college, you had been on the receiving end of entirely too much advice from various relatives, older friends, and even strangers. Don’t walk alone at night, don’t sign up for eight AM classes, don’t drink the “jungle juice” at any frat parties.
Your parents had told you to focus on your studies and seek tutoring help if you needed it. Your sister had encouraged you to join a sorority to really be at “the heart” of university life, as if you knew what that meant. The only advice your cousin gave you was to always remember your room key and to pack a pair of shower shoes, the latter of which she accompanied with a shudder - you could piece together that anecdote on your own.
But nobody had prepared you for this particular problem.
week leading up to your surgery you felt mostly numb. You weren’t scared or
anxious. Just numb. Your parents had come to Texas and were staying in your
house while you still stayed with Jensen. Jensen had noticed your change in
demeanor and while he was trying to change it by staying upbeat, he wasn’t
pushing the issue. He didn’t want to come on too strong.
that the IV was out of your arm you could go in the pool and that was where you
could be found most of the time, floating on a raft or just on your back in the
water, eyes closed, lost in thought. “Hey.” Jensen approached, sitting on the
side of the pool and dangling his legs into the water. “Everyone’s gonna be
here soon for dinner. Unless you wanna cancel.”
can’t cancel now.” You sighed and dragged yourself out of the pool. “Besides,
your parents are coming and I’ve never met them. I don’t want them to hate me
wouldn’t hate you.” Jensen grabbed your towel and wrapped it around your body.
“You’ve talked to ‘em on the phone. They love you just as much as I do. We’ll
make dinner quick and kick everyone out and then it’ll just be me and you.”

You pushed open the door to Harry’s son’s classroom, smiling as the teacher greeted you.
“Mommy!” His twin boys, Henry and Jake called, running over to you. “Hi, Mommy!”
“Henry, Jake, hello,” You said, hiding your surprise at their greeting. You crouched down and hugged the two of them, before signing them out. You held their hands as the three of you walked out to the car, strapping them into their car seats before starting the drive to Harry’s house.
“Harry?” You called, unlocking the door and stepping into the house. The boys raced in after you, stopping in the living room.
“In here,” Harry called, from the kitchen. The boys raced in, hugging Harry tightly.
“Hello, my little lads. How was school? Did you behave on the way home?” He asked.
“We did, Daddy,” Jake said, looking over at Henry. “We were happy to see Mommy.”
Harry stilled, and looked up at you. You shrugged, biting your lower lip. You had meant to bring it up to him later, but the boys had taken care of that for you.
“Henry, Jake, why don’t you go and wash up before I make you a snack?” Harry inquired.
“Okay, Daddy,” Henry said, and the two of them left you alone.
“(Y/N),” Harry quietly said.
“I know that I can’t replace their Mom, Harry. I don’t want to, either. I’m just-I’m just going to go,” You murmured, walking out the door. You got into your car, shutting the door behind you and driving off. When you got home, you opened your front door and collapsed on your couch. You curled up, your eyes brimming with tears. Your phone started to ring, and you saw Harry’s name on the screen. Pressing ignore, you took your phone upstairs and plugged it into the charger. You stepped into the shower, feeling the warm water wash over you. You stepped out, put on your pajamas, and got into bed. You lay there, staring at the ceiling, feeling hollow and alone, until you drifted off to sleep. When you awoke the next morning, you began to get ready for work, and drove to the office. Your day passed uneventfully, and when you got home, you were exhausted. You pulled into your driveway, ready to have a quick dinner and fall asleep. You unlocked your front door, and paused, noticing that the lights in the kitchen were on. You cautiously walked towards it, slipping off your shoes so you didn’t make too much noise. You looked around the doorframe, and were surprised to see Henry, Jake and Harry there.
“What….what are you three doing here?” You inquired.
“Mommy!” Jake and Henry cried, running towards you. They wrapped their arms around you, and you bent over, hugging them. You looked up at Harry, and blushed, wondering what he might be thinking.
“Jake, Henry, how about you go and play in the living room? There are some new toys in the basket for you guys,” You said.
“Okay, Mommy.” They said, and hurried off.
“Harry-” You started to say.
“Love,” He murmured, walking towards you. “You never let me finish what I wanted to tell you yesterday. I know that you’re not trying to be their Mum. Right now, they don’t remember her. Someday I will tell them about their Mum, and how much she loved them. But they love you, too. I’m doing a horrible job with this. I’m just trying to say….I don’t mind that they call you Mum. They love you, and so do I.” Harry quietly said. You wrapped your arms around him, and he gently pressed a kiss to your forehead.
“Thank you, Harry,” You whispered. Jake and Henry came in a few minutes later, and wrapped their arms around the two of you.
“Are we going to have dinner soon, Mommy and Daddy?” Henry inquired.
“We are, Henry,” Harry replied. You smiled as the three of them went back to what they were doing before you got home. Henry and Jake were putting out cups, and Harry went back to cooking dinner.
Summary: You thought that you were holding him down, making him unhappy, so you did what you thought was for the best.

The cup of coffee was piping hot as you took a sip from the mug. Your tongue stung as soon as the warm liquid grazed it. Around you, you saw various people sitting at their own tables around the cafe. Some were like you: students studying in comfort of sweet coffee and free wifi. Some were friends going out having a quick dinner. And some were couples going on a cute late night date.
It wasn’t a lie to say that you were envious of them because you were envious of them. You weren’t envious because you didn’t have a boyfriend because, as a matter of fact, you did have a boyfriend. You had a loving, caring, adorable, sweet boyfriend that’d do anything for you. But the thing that you were envious of was that these couples were different. These couples got to go on dates, get to hug each other, get to kiss….you? Your situation was a bit different.
When I absolutely don’t have time to put into preparing a meal or studying leaves me out of energy 🙈 frozen veg with chickpeas cooked in a bit of tomato sauce, spices and turmeric will always be my staple 💛🌱🥕

Have you ever had one of those days
where you felt like the world was targeting all its anger on you? That some
higher power was accumulating every negative experience and throwing it
directly your way? Well, today was one of those days.
Firstly, you had woken up late and
missed the bus to work. Next, because you were late to work by a mere 5
minutes, your boss had wasted 10 more minutes yelling at you for your
incompetence, although you had never been late before. Just about every
customer seemed to have taken out all their frustration on you, as well as your
lazy co-workers. You had to stay back an extra hour, finishing up work that
others had been charged with overseeing. The cherry on top was that, when you
had gone to get a quick dinner before heading home, you had found that your
favourite little café was shutting down. It took all your strength to stay strong
as you walked home, not having the energy to even get frustrated with a group
of men catcalled you as you walked round the last corner to your apartment.
Your feet were heavy as you pulled your empty shell of a body up the endless
flight of stairs. The elevator chose the worst day to break.
As you shut the door behind you, you
spotted Percival sitting at the dinner table, waiting for you. He stood up,
coming over to you with a concerned frown as he watched the blank expression on
“(Y/n), what’s wrong?”
As his words came out so did your
tears. You crashed finally, not pushed over the edge by another annoyance, but
rather pulled into reality at the first act of kindness you had experienced all
day. Percy brought you to his chest, coaxing you into a calm state with a
steady, gentle hand rubbing your back as he shushed you quietly.
Dex slipped out of bed quietly, trying not to wake
Nursey. It was early, too early for a
day when they had no morning skate, and he had no classes until 11am, but Dex
didn’t want to be late for work. He
needed all the money he could get, both for himself, and to send whatever he
could home to his dad and brother.
“Will?” Nursey mumbled sleepily from his bunk, “What time
“6am Dere, go back to sleep.” Dex whispered as he began
heading for the bathroom.
“I thought skate was cancelled?” Nursey asked, sitting up in
It had been two months since you graced the entire Karma Taj with your presence. Everything had been rather normal, maybe sex had been a little more heated but other than that nothing too different. Since that night the idea of having protected sex went out the window. Nothing compared to the intimacy and euphoric pleasure of the bare flesh.
So, against all logic and a reasonable state of mind, the two of you had been at it like rabbits.
Even if Stephen hadn’t invited you back to Nepal to visit him in a while he always made the time to use his sling ring to sneak into your apartment in the late hours of the night for a quick dinner, a good rendezvous in the bedroom, followed by the soft intimate embrace of post coital cuddling. Pillow talk always called for the most heart warming of conversations. The two of you would talk of the future yet to come and learn every detail about one another.
Things were honestly just going very well. The passion, the chemistry, the love! You were most certain that nothing would ever come between you the two of you, that was until one night..
“I remember the moment I first fell in love with you..” You whispered to him, your face buried into his toned chest. His hand gently brushing up and down your bare hip, his skin taking in your warmth.
“Of course..” You chimed, using your two fingers to trail up his chest until your hand was close to his jaw. Chuckling lowly he let his hand slip past your hip and to your bare ass, giving it a tight possessive squeeze. You giggled and continued to speak. “You don’t remember when you fell for me, Doctor?”
Stephen shrugged a bit, but not too much as too not he disrupt your comfort as you laid in his arms. “I guess I can’t recall the exact moment..” He muttered nonchalantly, his hand still playfully rubbing your bottom.
“Oh..” You sighed, choosing not to pursue the subject any longer to spare our feelings. Maybe you were just a sentimentalist but for some reason, him not being able to remember dampened your mood.
The two of you went to bed, and as usual, he had already left when you woke up the next morning and a feeling of melancholy had set in. No, you weren’t mad so say… You didn’t have a reason to be mad. It was just all of a sudden you didn’t feel like a priority to Stephen.
He had a big responsibility now that he was the Sorcerer Supreme but you yearned for him more and more. Yearning for his presence.. him next to you in the same bed. True, he still made sure to call you and see you at least once a week. But you wanted more?
Shifting under the covers you glanced over at your dresser and looked at a framed photograph, a picture of you and Stephen. His arms were around you and the sun was setting in the background behind the two of you, it was from your first visit to see him in Nepal. He hadn’t invited you back in a while and it made your heart sink. Was there a future with him?
Suddenly, a wave of nausea hit you like a ton of bricks and you were scrambling to make it to the bathroom in time.
“Congratulations, you’re pregnant!” the Doctor announced handing you back a sheet of paper with your test results. Your mind immediately went black and your body tensed. You had allowed this to happen with your own selfish stupidity and there was no way around this.
“Thank you..” You replied after a minute of wallowing in your own self pity. The rest of the appointment seemed to take an eternity as you began to think the ends and outs of the situation before you. Pre-natal care, motherhood… Telling Stephen..
The wild thoughts and feelings inside you only continued to fester and develop into absolute misery. Once you arrived back at your home you plopped down onto your bed and wept, wept until your eyes stung. How had you been so careless?
You had needed time to process everything, process your reckless behavior, the consequences of your actions, and subsequently how you would handle the outcome. You couldn’t come up with an easy answer.. There wasn’t one.
sitting up in your bed you continued to think, loosing all sense of time as your brain was going a mile a minute you jumped in surprise at the sound of your cell phone going off, your ring tone echoing through your ears.
It was Stephen.
“..Hey.” You greeted, your voice was low, almost a whisper.
“Hey..” He replied.
Silence followed before Stephen cleared his throat and began to speak again.
“I’ve been doing a lot of think.. I think we should talk.”
What had he meant by that exactly? You shuttered at the possibilities. ‘We should talk’ always had a negative canotation and with the doubts you had been having about the relationship for the past few days… Your paranoia was not out of line.
“Is everything alright, Stephen?”
“Yes.. Well, um, we should talk. What are you up too now?”
“I’m at home but now is not really a good ti-”
“I’ll be there faster than you can blink.”
And with a quick click the phone call was disconnected. Growling in irritation you quickly jumped from the comforts of your warm bed and ran into the bathroom to try and put on some make up before Stephen arrived, so he wouldn’t be able to tell you had been crying.
Within minutes you heard the woshing sounds of a sling-ring portal opening up in your living room prompting you to take one last look at yourself in the mirror.
“Here we go..” You muttered to yourself, placing a hand on your stomach before making your way to the livingroom to find Stephen sitting on your couch.
“Hello dear.” His voice was low and humble, his dark eyes looked over you and made you shutter. There was a strange determined look in his eye and his shoulders were tense, this made you nervous. The thought that he was going to break up with you definitely was rapid in your mind, but you shut that thought out very quickly.
“Hey..” You joined him on the couch, calmly sitting down with your hands on your lap. As the two of you sat there in a quick silence your eyes began to sting, you wanted to cry but you managed to hold it in.
“I, uhhh… Sorry to just come over but I really feel this needed to be done now.” He spoke, looking over at you, piercing straight through you with those baby blue eyes. Wrapping your arms around your waist, your finger tips pressed lightly against your stomach… Against your baby, you prepared for him to end this relationship for good.
“Go ahead then..” You choked, looking over at him with trembling lips. “Break up with me.”
Faltering, Stephen looked at you as if you were insane. He reached over, giving your shoulder a loving squeeze he chuckled a bit at your accusation. “Break up with you?” He scooted in closer, so his leg was against yours as you sat side by side. “No no… Y/N, I was going to ask you to move in with me.”
“Yes, yes, I want you to move in with me.. Granted it’s in Nepal.. at the Karma-Taj…” He reached over and took your hand, brushing against your stomach, he gave it a loving squeeze. “But, I just want you there when I sleep at night, you know?”
“Y-Yeah! I do know.. I hate how little we see each other, but Stephen, you ave such a small room and my apartment, and my job and m-”
“Y/N.. Listen, I know we have a lot to figure out but..” He paused for a moment and looked int your eyes as they were swelling with tears. You looked right back and studied his expression. His eyes were full of excitement and his lips werre curled up into an excited smile.. How did you ever doubt this man? “I just know I love you and I’m ready for you to be mine, move in with me and I promise we’ll figure everything out!”
“I.. I’m pregnant.”
As expected Stephen didn’t react in a positive way.. But it wasn’t negative either. He just sat there staring right back into your eyes as he processed the news.
“Yea Stephen.. Pregnant.”
“Well, I can’t say we didn’t have this coming.” He chuckled nervously and fell back hitting the couch cushions then running a hand through his dark black hair. “I love you, Y/N, and… This doesn’t change a thing. I want you-” He pointing at your stomach and a small smile crept on his face, “-And that baby. Even if I don’t remember the small things, like where I first fell in love.. But, I will always be there for the big moments.”
“You realized that bothered me?” Your cheeks flushed, suddenly embarrassed at how petty you were.
“Of course.. And, even though I don’t know exactly when I loved you I know I love you know.” He leaned back up and pressed his lips gently to yours for a moment, then he pressed his forehead to yours. “the moments like this though.. I’ll always remember.”
“Good.” You were grinning ear to ear, wrapping your arms around his neck.
“It was worth it.. All of it.” He kissed your forehead sweetly and pulled you in for a loving embrace. “And don’t you ever think otherwise.”
Sorry for the delayed update, especially with that cliffhanger. But exams are the worst. I am really going to try and finish this story up in the next few weeks. I intended for it to only be like five parts, but I think it’s going to be a few more than that! Anyway, finals are coming, so I am going to try really hard to write it all before I have to go back into exam mode. I hope you enjoy and as always, let me know what you think! Also, thanks again for all the love for this story :)
