Spoilers: Only that they live together in the Farmhouse of Love.
Summary: Emma asks Natalia to tell her an original bedtime story.
Disclaimer: I don't own ‘um, but if I did, I would recruit the peeps at p&p and bpd to write for the show…
AN: Takes place after the events of the wedding, only in my happy universe, Olivia and Emma moved back in. The ladies are still tentative about their relationship, but it’s looking good for lovin’. The subsequent parts should be longer. I have no beta, all mistakes mine. Comments are, in fact, love.
AN2: A semi response to jayden_scott’s Femslash How-To. Here are the lessons applied; hopefully the Unicorns and Aliens are acceptable. ;p
“I don’t feel good,” Emma squeaked pitifully, coughing wetly into a tissue as Natalia leaned down to kiss her forehead.
“My poor sweet baby girl,” the Latina murmured, slipping into bed beside the miserable child. It was a beautiful Saturday morning; the sun was out and the temperature was above 55, for once. The air was full of bird song and fluffy bumble bees lazily searching for the first flowers of the season. It was a perfect day for exploring, or a picnic, or even just lounging in the backyard. So of course Emma had woken up with the flu.
“Would you like a popsicle for your throat?” the woman offered, hoping to distract her would-be daughter from her pain. Emma shook her head, eyes shiny with tears. “How about a movie? We could have a flu party on the couch?” Another sad shake of the girl’s head, followed by a sniffle. Natalia felt her heart clench; her poor baby! “Is there anything you want?”
“Tell me a story?” Emma croaked, curling into the woman.
“Whatever you want sweetie. What book would you like?”
“Want a story about Unicorns and Space Pirates and Princesses...” Came the rambling response. Natalia frowned for a moment.
“I don’t think we have that book.”
“Can you tell me anyway?” Emma pleaded, blinking up at her. Her heart melted and she smiled.
“Okay sweetie. Anything else you want in the story?” The girl thought for a moment.
“You and Mommy and Aliens too.” The woman giggled, the story already forming in her mind.
“Tall order, but I’ll see what I can do.”
They settled into bed, Emma lying against Natalia’s chest, wheezing softly. Stroking baby soft hair, the woman began. “Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away-”
“That’s Star Wars!” Emma exclaimed, rolling her eyes.
“Oh, you’re right. Let’s try that again. Okay, once upon a time, in a far away land there lived a Princess-"
“Named Natalia,” again the girl interrupted, bouncing slightly in place. "And she had a Unicorn, and she was the nicest Princess in the whole world."
“Who’s telling this story, huh?” Natalia teased, tickling the girl until she giggled an apology.
“Okay, okay, sorry!”
“Right, so, there lived a Princess named Natalia,” the woman paused, waiting for a moment before continuing. “And a dreaded Space Pirate named Olivia…”
