Annalise sat anxiously at the table, playing with her oatmeal and glancing at the door every other minute. Annalise was still in her cute pink pajamas, her hair all ruffled, but her eyes were wide awake, and she was smiling through her anxiety. A knock came at the door, and you stood up quickly to answer it.
“Eat your food, baby, we gotta get dressed soon.” You run a hand over Annalise’s hair as you walk past her and towards the door. When you opened it you were faced with Kai, holding a teddy bear and small bouquet of flowers. You let him in, reluctantly, and he gives you the flowers.
“Anna’s in the kitchen eating. Why do you have a bear?” You look from his face to the bear in his hands.
“For Anna, I didn’t know I had a daughter, I figured I’d do something nice for her.” You really want to hit him again. What does he think is going to happen? That he’ll give you flowers and give your daughter a stuffed bear and everything will be forgiven? If he would have just listened to you, none of this ever would have happened.
He follows you into the kitchen, Anna’s bowl of oatmeal was still on the table, now competely eaten, and Anna was tapping the spoon on the table in boredom. When she saw Kai she ran right to him, he hugged her back more quickly this time and when they broke apart he held out the bear.
“Thank you, daddy.” She looked adorable, you couldn’t deny that, but doesn’t every mother think their child is the most gorgeous one there is?
“Let’s get you dressed, yeah? Then we’ll all go do something fun.” Anna gives a quick nod and walks in front of you up the stairs. You turn around to look at Kai.
“Stay here, and please try not to destroy anything.” Before he can answer you’re gone, walking up the stairs towards Annalise’s room.
She was standing in her closet, looking at the dresses that lined the rack, trying to reach her favorite one. It was a purple dress, with a tu-tu like bottom, and lots of bows around the top. With Anna finally changed into her dress and leggings, you stand behind her as she walks down the stairs, her hands holding onto the rail. A crash from the kitchen has you running around her and through the archway into the kitchen. Damn had Kai pinned to the wall, his arm pressed right into Kai’s throat. Anna came running around you, her hand finding yours quickly.
“Kai, what the hell?” Kai’s gulps as he looks from you to Damon, and then down to Annalise.
“Just having a- chat.” Kai groans and leans his head back.
“Leave him alone.” Anna speaks up from beside you and Damon looks right at her.
“What?” Damon asks, his eyebrows raised.
“I said leave my daddy alone!” When Damon doesn’t let go of Kai Anna takes a step forward, her hands curled into fists at her side, as she stares Damon down.
“LEAVE DADDY ALONE!” The house shakes, a lamp falls over in the living room, and the light on the ceiling sways violently. Damon doesn’t let Kai down.
Anna screams, a the windows in the kitchen shatter, glass goes everywhere, and you reach out to grab Anna in an instant to protect her from the glass. Damon speeds out of the room and Kai gasps for air as Anna falls into your arms. Her nose was bleeding, she was probably dizzy, big magic like that wasn’t meant to be used by a five year old.
“Mommy..” Kai hands you a napkin as he kneels beside you, you wipe away the blood on her nose.
“I’m right here, baby.” She wraps her hand around your wrist as she opens her eyes.
“Where’s daddy?” Kai moves closer so she can see him, she smiles.
“I saved you.” Anna reaches her hand out and wraps her fingers around two of his big fingers.
“You saved me, but don’t do that ever again, you don’t have to save me, okay?” She nods, lets go of his fingers, curls towards your chest, and falls right to sleep.
“So much for doing something fun.” You say as you stand up, Anna still in your arms, fast asleep.
“I don’t know, I thought that was pretty eventful.” You roll your eyes.
“I’m gonna go out her down in her bed, I’ll be back down soon.” Kai gives you a nod with a soft ‘okay’ before you’re walking up the stairs again.
With Anna all tucked in in her bed, still sleeping soundly, you headed back downstairs. Kai was in the living room, trying to find a channel on the tv. The broken lamp was no longer broken, it sat intact on the table where it always was.
“How did you..?” You motion to the lamp.
“Magic.” Kai moves his fingers, much like he did when he waved, and you sat down on the other end of the couch, legs under you, leaning away from him.
“I’m not going to bite you, you know. Unless you want me to, you always were into some-”
“Okay, that’s enough.” He smiles, and you find yourself blushing.
“What? I mean, if I remember correctly, the night we made Anna was pretty wild.” You pick up a throw pillow and toss it at him.
“Shut up.” You were smiling, and you found out quickly that you were a lot less tense than before, something about Kai- he always made you feel so happy, so incredibly safe in your own little corner of the world.
You sit in silence for a while, skimming channels and scrolling through your phone. Kai kept to his side of the couch, and you were grateful for it, you didn’t want to be any closer to him than you needed to be. You were too stubborn, he’d make the first move, you wouldn’t.
“Why Annalise?” Kai’s voice pulls you out of your thoughts.
“Huh?” You clear your throat. He was still staring at the tv.
“Why name her Annalise?” You shrug.
“I just thought the name was pretty, I brainstormed for a while with an old friend of mine and well, we came up with Annalise. It’s fitting, she’s adorable, just as the name suggests.” Kai nods, silently urging you to go on about Anna.
“When she was born she wailed, crying and screaming until I held her and then, boom, no more crying. She just- stopped and stared right up at me. Bright blue eyes, tiny hands, she was so small, so tiny. She looks so much like you, the same hair, the same eyes, and when she was born that broke my heart. When I saw those blue eyes all I could think was you, you were dead, you weren’t coming back, and in that moment all I thought was that my baby- our baby, wouldn’t even get to know you.” Kai reached across the couch and took your hand, you look down at his hand on yours and then to his face. He looked so concerned, so sincere.
“That’s why I want to be here now, I want to be here for every birthday, every little league game, every time she scrapes her knee. I want to be here for everything.” You were tearing up, he wanted to be around her now, he was so different from last time, he wanted to be here for Anna.
“I missed you so much.” You hug him, for the first time in years and he hugs you back.
“I missed you too.”
