Owen’s only half-listening to Tosh; he’s tired, he was up half the night dealing with an emergency after Andy got himself stuck full of quills trying to corral the alien equivalent of a porcupine, so his brain’s in sleep mode. But when she says ‘Baby,’ suddenly he’s wide-awake, all his attention centred on his wife.
“What?” Okay, not the most intelligent response ever.
Tosh grins that wicked grin.
“I said; we’re going to have a baby.”
She nods and suddenly Owen’s on his feet, spinning her around.
“I’m gonna be a dad!”
Funny how he’s not tired anymore.
A/N2: Title used was ‘When She Says Baby’.
Funny how I seem to be telling Lily’s story backwards.
