Brief Summary: Blair is going to babysit Rafe’s son, Martin for the evening.
Warnings: Blair falls in love.
Notes/acknowledgments: Thank you, Peja for a good prompt right off the bat. This isn’t beta’d. Ten minutes???? This is a sequel to two others about Rafe and his little son, Martin.
More notes: This took forever. I just couldn’t seem to get it right. I hope it’s not too horrible. Believe it or not, this little tiny bit took ten minutes.
Jim had to work with Rafe that evening and Blair agreed to watch Martin, Rafe’s little six month old son. It was supposed to be simple, until Blair went and fell in love.
Jim never thought about Blair falling in love with a six month old baby. But it happened and now Jim would have to deal with a childless, Blair.
Blair found out how wonderful a six month old baby could be and he had great fun teaching him little things while his daddy was working with Uncle Jim. The evening flew by and before long, Rafe was there to pick Martin up. Blair didn’t want to let him go and Jim saw the anguish on his lover’s face.
Once Rafe and Martin left, Blair was very quiet and moped around the loft. Jim finally said, “Want to talk about it?”
“Nothing to talk about Jim. We can’t have children and I knew that from the beginning,” Blair explained.
“He’s a cutie pie isn’t he?” Jim asked.
“He’s precious and I miss him already,” Blair admitted.
Jim looked at his love and asked, “Ever think about adoption?”
Blair smiled and said, “I didn’t think you were interested.”
“I’d love to have a family with you,” Jim confessed.
“Let’s think about it and in the mean time, let’s babysit Martin more than once a week, so we can practice,” Blair suggested.
“Sounds good to me, Blair,” Jim leaned in and kissed his love and knew they would work things out.
