Funny how what felt like hours of throwing the girl around yesterday had barely put a dent in her energy, and yet an early morning and an hour or so of class today had completely exhausted her. Maybe it was getting her into to plenty of leapfrog and hopscotch... Or maybe it was learning not to go along with endless requests for tea parties and sugar.

Well, whatever, Adele was currently crashed out asleep with her mouth open, and using Effy as a cushion. Tempted as she was to sneak off for a smoke, for now, she was basically stuck, cause moving was only going to wake her up again. It was actually quiet. Hadn't got that for the best part of a weekend. It was something to make the most of for however long it actually lasted.

Meantime, her phone was going to have to do for entertainment. People to text, games to play... few pictures to take (yeah yeah, of her kid). That sort of thing.

[[Open door, open post, etc etc. I'm around tonight and bored.]]

"How the fuck did you get her to fall asleep?" Alex asked, having come up to see how things were. "Booze?"

That was a joke, of course. He lowered his voice and quieted his steps so the kid would sleep uninterrupted.

[Heading home shortly but I will be back!]

"Couple of shots and she was out like a light."

Also kidding. Really.

"I'm actually surprised you shared your booze," Alex said, tilting his head and looking down at the kid. "Thought that'd be a stingy mom think to horde."

"What about me says 'stingy mom' to you?" Didn't really fit either category, did she?

"The part where your booze is concerned," he said, reaching down to just barely touch the top of Adele's head with his fingertips. "I'd be stingy too."

"I've shared with you," she pointed out, watching his movements with a slight smirk. Many times, actually. "You forget that?"

"I'm the exception to the rule," Alex said, taking a seat beside her and shrugging. "I'm the exception to all rules."

"You're getting that purely because I share with you?" she wondered, tossing her phone a little way down the bed since she had better entertainment now. Answer was probably not, but that was the impression he was giving at the moment.

"You share lots of things with me," he said, giving the kid an appraising look before glancing back up at her. "How many kids do you think we have elsewhere?"

Effy huffed a brief laugh, idly winding a few strands of the little girl's hair around her finger. "Makes my head hurt to think about it." The idea there was at least two was strange enough.

"Put up with you that long in multiple worlds," she joked, finally looking back up at him. "Scary."

"Oh, don't make it sound like such a bad thing," Alex joked back, rolling his eyes. "Obviously there's something about me you like enough to stick around."

Probably more than just the singular something, but Effy's lips just twitched in a slight smile.

"Maybe not that scary," she allowed. They apparently managed to produce the sort of kid who didn't hate them, who was giggly and happy and well-adjusted. Clearly somewhere they were doing something right.

"Should I take some pictures that you can send back to the folks and your brother?" Alex asked, smirking. "Sure Tony'll love it."

Effy huffed another little breath of amusement, and inclined a slight nod. Tony probably would.

"Think my dad would implode if I mentioned her." Which made it not a completely unappealing plan.

"We could say we'd gotten married before it happened, see if that helps," Alex offered, amused.

Date: 2011-02-15 12:11 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
"Oh yeah. Making an honest woman out of me. Makes all the difference."

... Or not. Effy rolled her eyes casually and brushed that piece of hair back to somewhere that seemed vaguely in place.

"You know you'd get the blame, right?" Because as bad as she was, Effy was still their little girl, and they seemed to have a blind spot where she was concerned.

"You think your dad would come after me?" Alex wondered, still sounding amused. "I've had dads after me before, you know. I'm pretty adept at getting away, hiding or talking my way out of it."

"Betting you haven't had to talk your way out of a kid yet," she guessed, indicating Adele's dozing form. "How'd you do that?"

"Tell him we adopted out of the kindness of our hearts," Alex said, shrugging. "Wouldn't that make us compassionate people?"

"Any likeness, purely coincidental," Effy remarked with a twitch of her smirk. "Don't think that'd get you off the hook." It wouldn't. Not that she thought it would be anything other than a lot of yelling. But it would be a lot. "New curses would be invented in your honour."

"Why?" Alex asked, chuckling. "I'm not that bad at this. I'm better than my old man which is saying a fucking lot. Your dad could do worse in the department of a guy that knocked up his daughter."

"Could be a fucking prince and he wouldn't like you for it." Like that was any surprise. That was any parent's reaction to a pregnant teenage daughter. "Probably better than him, too." After watching Adele shift and sigh in her sleep, Effy thought to lower her voice a little for her, "Go you."

"Yeah, let's not let that out for public consumption," Alex said, making a face. "I'd rather avoid people asking me why I've got a knack for taking care of kids. Not the greatest collection of memories."

"Should know I'm good at secrets by now." She wouldn't go spreading that one, much as she might tease. There were certain things better left mysterious. She tapped her temple. All in there and staying there.

"She might tell people," Effy said, motioning downwards. "Seems like a sharer."

"Well, I don't expect her to be around for too long," Alex said bluntly. He shrugged a shoulder. "And if she does, I'll lie that she was lying and really, who are people gonna believe? Me or a cute kid?"
