they always said there was a first time for everything. nik lestrange had never thought there would be a first time for him going to a carnival. yet here he was, a toddler in his arms and that said toddled had his arms curled around a purple bear. he didn't think he'd ever felt so out of place in his life but oddly enough he wasn't hating it. the rides were okay, nothing special to him, well the ones he was allowed to go on with seb weren't very interesting but seb seemed to be having fun so the smile on his son's face actually made all this worth it. he'd owled andy a few days before, telling her that he wanted her to meet sebastian. he was her nephew after all. he also thought that it might help her, something for her to look forward to in the new year. after all, it had been a hell of a new year. he looked at seb when his son patted his cheek and he raised a brow slightly. "what, what do you want kiddo?" he asked. he still had trouble showing the affection that he felt for seb but he was learning. slowly. very slowly. he saw the chubby hand point to one of the magical toys that was behind one of the stands.
"you already have the damn bear. isn't that enough?" he asked, almost smirking when he saw the pout on his son's face. "barking up the wrong tree kid. waterworks work on your mother." he said as he kept walking. if seb got upset he'd soon get over it, the beauty of being a toddler, the reason for tears were often forgotten before they dried on cheeks. he kept his eye out for andy, not wanting to miss his sister. he was slightly nervous, this was the first time one of his sisters would be meeting his son. he would have asked nat to come along but he wasn't even sure if she'd want to. they hadn't left on good terms at the hospital and he was tired of conceding to her moods. he finally spotted andy's face in the crowd and he walked toward her, hugging seb's small body closer without thinking and he raised his hand in greeting. he wondered how subdued he would seem to the people he'd grown up with, the people he'd worked with and the people who knew him as he had been before.
