In the year 2028 there sits a scientist looking over his notes with scrutiny. He had finally managed to achieve his life-long ambition but he needs to double check, triple check, just to make sure that all of his calculations were correct. If he found once single mistake it could turn his excitement and anticipation into turmoil and he would be put right back to square one with nothing to show for it. One last time before he would allow himself to celebrate his success.
He places down his pen and removes his glasses, leaving them on top of the pile of notes he had spent years collating and calculating and stares vacantly at the wall of his office before his lips turn up into a smile and his fist cane crashing down on his desk with an enthusiasm he thought he had lost years ago.
Time travel. He had finally cracked the mystery of it and he would go down in history as being the first man to discover its possibilities.
It took him no longer than a year to put all of his calculations into a machine so that he could create a vessel that could travel back in time. All he needed now was a team to send back. Someone who knew enough about History to survive the past and someone who could protect them if anything were to go wrong...and things do go wrong...
The first time they travel back in time the electrical circuits get fried and they become trapped in a time so far away from the present that they have no idea how to get back.
I am looking for a 1x1 but with someone who can handle more than one character. I am looking for someone to double up as a character as part of the team that travel back and get stuck and someone who is actually part of the past.
We can discuss details and the time period we get stuck in together as that’s totally open. I would prefer someone who can write as both a Male and Female character but we can discuss plots and characters further in my PMs.

[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Fletcher seemed to get restless now and Willow sighed as she picked him back up and cradled him in an embrace. It was almost as though he knew they were talking of leaving and was becoming disgruntled by the idea of it. [b “Shhh it’s okay. It’s way past your bedtime you know.”] She said towards him as he moved his hand towards her face and started to settle into her slightly. The move made her heart melt and she wanted nothing more than to stay in that moment, but Justin made some good points.
[b “And what if we go back and you find that you don’t love me anymore? That it was all just the convenience of being here and you go back to your work and forget about me?”] It was an irrational fear, she knew that, but it didn’t make it any less real. She stood carefully so that she could lower Fletcher into the cot and he didn’t seem to make a fuss about being put down. Willow moved to lower herself next to Justin and she let out a concerned sigh. [b “And what about our family here? We go back home because there is medicine and leave them here to fend for themselves?”]
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] When the show was over he joined in with the rest of the audience as the stood in applause and he looked towards Anastasia with a smile. [b “I am glad that you enjoyed it my love. I do hope that you will allow me to take you out more now the twins are growing up.”] He said with a smile as he took hold of her hand and led her out of the theatre. [b “Now, are you desperate to get home or will you join be for a stroll this evening? I want to take advantage of this as much as I can.”] He stopped just outside of the theatre, waiting for her response.
Jobe used a hand to move a piece of hair that had fallen in front of her face and in that moment, he was unable to stop himself. He used his hand to tilt her chin slightly and allowed her hand to rest on her cheek. [b “You really are so very beautiful.”] He said as he leaned down to kiss her.
Justin sighed and ran a hand through his hair.
"I thought that too." He murmured. It had been loose wires and a readjustment of a circuit board. He looked to Willow and watched her carefully. They risked a lot staying here, there was no modern medicine for a start.
"I know and you wouldn't lose me, I'd still marry you even if we were in the Jurassic period."He pointed out and he had to agree, Jobe and Anastasia were family now, not just friends. He loved Fletcher and Juliet as if they were his own and Jobe was like a brother.
"I know... And I get it. I just... I worry. There's no modern medicine here, if something goes wrong... Smallpox is still a thing here, Willow. And what if we ever have a kid, there' be no help if something went wrong." He pointed out and sighed quietly. He wouldn't ever make a decision without her and he sure as Hell wouldn't leave her here by herself. Where she went, he went. He sat down and took a drink of water, as if steeling his nerves because this was a big decision. If she was adamant on staying then fine, he would forget the device entirely.
Anastasia smiled to Jobe as the show started. The theatre seemed like such a rare thing and it still captured her the same way it had the first time. Although sometimes she struggled to followed the plotline, the actors and the lights seem to make up for it and she was enthralled. And for the briefest of moments she forgot responsibilities and she was just there with Jobe, like it had been a year ago before they were married. It was so strange to her, sometimes. If she hadn't accepted the offer of the theatre with a nudge from Willow then this would never have happened, none of it.
As the show wound to a close, Anastasia applauded as the lights came back up and she looked to Jobe.
"The theatre is just as magical as it was the first time I went with you." She laughed a little. She didn't seem to notice the looks anymore, or the murmurs that some of the more ignorant members of upper class seemed to have. It was funny how that worked. She didn't care about Jobe's class or his wealth, she was grateful they could live comfortably and could make a difference to his factory workers but otherwise, she loved Jobe. Not the wealth or the class or fancy lifestyle, she loved the man.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow looked up towards Justin with both intrigue and confusion. It seemed that Justin had been keeping something from her and that made her feel slightly nervous. She glanced at Fletcher who was happily sitting in her arms before she looked back towards Justin. [b “What did you do?”] She asked cautiously, mentally preparing herself for whatever it was he was about to say. She had expected him to say an array of things, perhaps telling her that the device had been fixed was not one of them.
[b “But you said it was broken indefinitely, that it couldn’t be fixed.”] She thought about this for a moment and turned away from him, just so that Fletcher could see the gardens. He always liked to look out there. She decided to lower herself to the ground and held Fletcher up, so he could bash his hands on the window and she laughed quietly to herself before looking back towards Justin. [b “I don’t know if I can leave this behind Justin. They are out family…Anastasia, Jobe…the children.”] She shook her head and paused for a moment. [b “…and us. What if we go back and everything changes? We won’t be married there…and everything we have built here will be gone. I can’t lose you too Justin.”]
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] Jobe was glad that things between them had seemed to work out so easily. Even though Anastasia had her reservations about how they would make it work, they had and aside from the few looks they received from the uneducated upper class no one said a word to them. As for his business, it was doing better than ever, and it was almost running itself now. Justin made sure that they were all in good health and since Willow had educated some of the workers, he was able to give some of them more responsibility with logging paperwork, which gave him more time at home with his wife a child.
There was something else plaguing his mind though but now was not the time to discuss it with his wife. They were about to enjoy a show and he would mention it to her later. He always ran his ideas through with her first because they were a partnership. With that thought the curtains began to open and the theatre went quiet. [b “Enjoy the show my love.”]
Justin was glad Willow was doing better, honestly. It was a relief but he wasn't sure she would like what he was about to tell her.
"Willow- Before... The miscarriage I did something." He said to her quietly. "You know I hate leaving broken things so... I fixed the device. We could go home." He said, honestly he wasn't sure he even wanted to go home. They had built a life here, a successful life that they had together. Jobe and Anastasia had been so kind and they had made a close friendship with them both. It seemed so odd to think they could just flit back to their regular lives at home.
"I'm not sure what to do." He confessed as he looked to Fletcher and Juliet. If they went home, there was no guarantees they could get back and honestly, it seemed odd to just be flying visitors. He had confidence in this era, a good job and he could help where he could with science and Willow had done so well in this era. He wasn't keen on the idea of going back to his cramped apartment and slaving over menial tasks and going back to being distant. Would their relationship even survive in their own time?
Anastasia was still surprised that they could be so open with their relationship now. The last time they had ventured to the theatre she had been so embarrassed over kissing Jobe's cheek. Now, they could be open.
"I love you too." She said to him and smiled a little. Everything just seemed so perfect. They had two beautiful children who had good health, they were both healthy and had the company of good friends.
The theatre was just as magical as she remembered it had been a whole year ago. And Jobe hadn't changed either. Marriage hadn't changed who they were and the children had changed them for the better. She loved Jobe more than she had to begin with, especially when she saw him holding their son or daughter in his arms. It was like instinct. And she was so glad they had managed to get some time together thanks to Willow and Justin offering to look after the children.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] [b “I don’t disagree with you on that one. They are both so gorgeous, I can hardly stand it.”] She said with a smile, looking at both of the children before settling her gaze on Justin. She nodded, happy that winter was over too. It meant that the school room wouldn’t be so cold. She could hardly believe how close the twins were to all of that and she was rather excited by the prospect of chasing them around the house and the garden to keep them out of mischief. She giggled to herself as she watched Juliet fall asleep and Justin settled her. [b “I don’t think that it a bad thing. You have the touch, you said that when we first met them and it’s still true now. I, on the other hand, seem to inspire energy.”] She smiled as he kissed her forehead and watched him lowed himself into a seat and then started to walk around with Fletcher in her arms, bouncing him gently.
[b “Me? I am fine. Just trying to figure out where to go with the school room now. Most of his staff can read and write now and are educated enough and I am just wondering whether it’s worth extended my services to their children, so they have better chances growing up.”] Fletcher was finally starting to settle down and she sighed with relief. He wasn’t crying but he needed attention and he was so tiring when he was like this. [b “But if you mean how am I emotionally. I’m good. I promise.”] She said with a smiled and she meant it…for the first time in a long while she was doing well.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] Jobe laughed and squeeze her hand affectionately. [b “You are always in good company with me my dear.”] He said with a smile. He was just as nervous as the children, but he didn’t want to show it, knowing that they both needed this evening. The fact that Anastasia wanted to raise their children without help meant that they were both tired. Having Justin and Willow to help them certainly helped on occasion.
Jobe enjoyed the idea of taking the twins outside and couldn’t wait to see them enjoying the outdoors. [b “They’ll be running around out there before you know it.”] He said as they two made their way towards their seats. [b “I love you too.”] He said, leaning over to press a kiss on her lips. [b “More and more with each passing day.”]
Justin looked to Willow and smiled at her remark,
“Well, Juliet is going to be a heartbreaker. Her father is going to have to chase the boys off with a stick!” He nodded.
“Hm? Oh the usual. Nothing new. Everyone seems in relatively good health.” He commented.
“I think everyone is glad winter is over.” He added with a small laugh.
“And you and your brother will be toddling around soon which is great because it will be good weather.” He smiled but Juliet was falling asleep and he raised an eyebrow,
“I have that effect on women.” He joked as he settled her and looked to Willow.
“And how have you been doing?” He did still worry for her, of course. She had been through a lot and he just hoped that spring and the nicer weather helped her to move on. He kissed her forehead gently before sitting down.
Anastasia stepped out the carriage.
“Well if I’m beautiful then I’m in good company.” She said to Jobe with a giggle as she held his hand. She knew he was right but it did go against every instinct in her body to leave her children when they were so young but she was glad he understood. And they did need a break. Anastasia had refused to allow a nanny to help, wanting to do it all herself so that she didn’t miss a moment. But she also needed to remember she had Jobe and he was just as important as the children, after all.
Anastasia walked into the theatre with him,
“I’m glad winter is over, you know? We can take the twins in the gardens now without worrying about the cold.” She smiled and looked to him, seeing him out and about, dressed up and with a peculiar vibe about him due to being a father now, the father of her children, it was as if Anastasia loved him even more somehow.
“I love you, Jobe.” She said quietly as they took their seats.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow looked up when she heard Justin’s voice and she couldn’t help but laugh. [b “But look at him. He is!”] She said with a smile as she looked back down at the boy bouncing happily on her knee. They really were growing quickly, and Fletcher was becoming more and more expressive and vocal with each passing day. Willow looked up at their friends walked in the room. [b “You both look wonderful.”] She said with a smile and looked towards Anastasia as Justin reassured her that the twins would be fine. [b “You both deserve a good night out.”] She watched as they said their goodbyes and they left the house, leaving the twins in their capable hands.
Willow wanted nothing more than to feel his kiss upon her lips in the moment but having the twins to look out for mean there were more important matters to take care of. Juliet stirred in her cot and Willow laughed at Justin as he reached for her. [b “And you’re calling other women pretty? Am I not good enough for you anymore?”] She laughed as she used his words against him and rose from her seat so that she could move around a little more with Fletcher who was getting restless sat in one spot. [b “How was everything at the factory today?”]
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] [b “And to we both deserve a night to dress up and indulge ourselves. I know you will worry, it’s only natural but Justin and Willow are so good with the children. I can think of no one better to look after them while we enjoy the theatre.”] As if to prove his point the two of them were greeted with the sight of Willow and Justin together with them. [b “Enjoy your evening.”] He said towards them after kissing both of his children. He led Anastasia out to the carriage and settled comfortably next to her, keeping hold of her hand.
[b “You look beautiful.”] He said, placing a kiss on her temple. [b “You always do but you also look relaxed tonight. You know it’s perfectly fine for parents to want or need a break, right?”] He said as they neared the theatre. Once they arrived they he helped Anastasia out of the carriage and he smiled. They had a pretty heavy winter and they were only just starting to lose the cold weather with the arrival of spring. [b “It’s a lovely evening.”]
Justin came out from the study and smiled to Willow and Fletcher.
“Oh you’re calling other men handsome already?” He chuckled and smiled to Fletcher. The twins were both growing so quickly! He didn’t mind watching the twins for a night so Jobe and Anastasia could have some time together, although he could tell Anastasia was going worry and he hoped she didn’t because Willow was great with the kids!
Justin looked over as Jobe and Anastasia came down and he smiled.
“There’s mother and father, both looking rather good!” He cooed to Fletcher and laughed a little. He looked to Anastasia before she could start worrying,
“Don’t worry. They’ll be completely fine!” He assured and watched them say goodbye sighing quietly as they headed off. Justin looked back to Willow and honestly, he missed her a lot. She seemed to shrink from his touch lately, like she was frightened and it made him feel awful. He knew she had been through so much with the miscarriage and he didn’t want to push her but sometimes he did just want to hold her close at night and feel her soft skin under his fingers. He kissed Willow’s cheek softly and looked to Fletcher and then to Juliet, laughing a little.
“Hey there, pretty lady!” He said as he picked her up and smiled.
Anastasia has to admit it felt nice to get dressed up again. She fixed her hair and smiled to Jobe, feeling his arms around her. She kissed his cheek softly and looked him over,
“It’s been a long while since we dressed up!” She said happily as she took his hand and headed downstairs, seeing Willow and Justin with the children. She let go of Jobe’s hand and said goodbye to Fletcher and Juliet,
“Send for us, if anything happens.” She said to them and was ushered off by Justin. She knew Justin and Willow were perfectly capable and wouldn’t let any misfortune happen to the twins.
Anastasia got into the carriage and smiled to Jobe.
“As much as I hate leaving our children, it is nice to be with you again.” She sighed softly as she realised they had a night of no crying infants, no bottles, and honestly, even if it was for a few hours she was relieved. She settled at Jobe’s side as they rode into town. She had missed Jobe because in all honesty it had been tough being a mother and she was always tired and her appearance was always lacking due to never having the time but she had had a bath that night and dressed herself up and she felt back to her usual self.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Several months had passed since Willow’s miscarriage and on the whole, most things had returned to normal. The two were working in the factory and helping Jobe and Anastasia with the children when they needed some extra help or time alone. Willow had made a point that it was important for the two to enjoy each other’s company more often. Jobe had planned a surprise trip to the theatre that night and had asked Willow and Justin if they would look after Fletcher and Juliet and they were all too happy to accept.
While Justin and Willow were still very much in love, Willow had been avoiding intimate moments with him over the passing months. She knew that her body needed time and if she was to fall pregnant again before her body had repaired itself, she would lose another child and she would not be able to bear it. Although, she was sure now that enough time had passed, she did not want to push the idea of trying again on Justin just yet.
Willow was sat in the conservatory holding Fletcher while Juliet slept and while she was alone she sang a song to him. He cooed, and she could have sworn he had clapped his hands and smiled at her even if it was impossible. [b “Well you are most welcome young sir.”] She said to him as she lifted him up to place a kiss on his head. [b “You are becoming so handsome!”]
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] Jobe was excited to spend an evening outside of the house. While the two had managed to steal some time alone, they hadn’t been out together since they had been married. He looked at the clock patiently and then made his way up to the bedroom and knocked on the door before pushing it open gently. [b “Are you ready to go my love?”] He asked and stopped in the doorway upon seeing her.
It was as though he was seeing her for the first time and he was sure that his heart had stopped. [b “Well you look simply ravishing my darling.”] He said as he moved into the room and wrapped his arms around her so that he could pull her in for a kiss. [b “I would suggest that we stay here instead if I had not already purchased the tickets.”] He said with a wink as he took hold of her hand. [b “Come on, we should get going my love.”]
“I know, I’m a wizard in the kitchen!” Justin smiled to her and then heard her declaration of love and he sighed out. It as like music to his ears as he sat by her.
“I know, Willow and I love you too.” He kissed the side of her head gently and relaxed beside her. She was getting better and he just prayed that they could only go up from here because they had hot rock bottom already and he didn’t ever want to be there again. Willow deserved the world and he would help her achieve everything and whatever happiness she wanted.
“We’ve got this, you know? We’re going to get through this.” Justin assured her quietly. He would never forget the love he felt for Willow and how broken she had looked after the miscarriage. Now though, there was colour in her skin and there was some sort of hope she would be the woman she had been before.
Anastasia smiled to Jobe.
“Me neither.” She murmured and stretched.
“Although we might even get a quiet night for a change, you know? All the excitement of today seems to have tired the little ones out.” She murmured. She knew that they would want a feed throughout the night and until they moved onto bottles, it was her job to get up and see to them. She didn’t mind though. She took a drink of water and rubbed her eyes.
“I could go an early night.” She said and smiled to Jobe a little. Whilst the twins were asleep she wouldn’t mind a catch up on lost hours.
Anastasia kisses Jobe’s cheek and moved to gather Fletcher in her arms as she took him upstairs and settled him in the cot by the bed as she smiled a little as he fussed at being moved.
“Poor little angel.” She cooed and watched him settle once more back to sleep. She changed for sleep and settled under the blankets. It was getting colder the closer to Christmas it got but she made sure her children were always wrapped up.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow was truly grateful for their understanding and patience and even if they did not realise it, it helped her a great deal, as did being put in a position where should could not avoid their children for much longer. She never would have been able to forgive herself if she missed out on anything important. She smiled up at Justin and took hold of his hand and used it to pull herself up from her seat. With a smile towards Anastasia and Jobe, she started to make her way out of the conservatory and up to their room with Justin at her side. She really did appreciate him and she wished she could find a way to show him.
[b “I won’t”] She said reassuringly as they entered their bedroom and she nodded. For the first time in a week she actually felt hungry and she knew Justin would be delighted that her appetite was beginning to return. [b “Don’t be too long.”] She said as she started to ready herself in her night attire. Today was the first day she felt like she might be able to move on and she figured that was a good step in the right direction. Willow climbed into bed and picked up a book she had been reading and busied herself with that while she waited for Justin to return.
As promised he wasn’t too long, and she responded to his presence by putting the book back down and she looked over the tray of food with a raised eyebrow. [b “What even the bread and cheese? You sure work fast.”] Willow laughed softly as she started to help herself to some food. [b “I love you Justin.”] She realised that she had not told him that since the accident and she was overcome with the need to remind him of that.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] Jobe glanced towards Anastasia when they were left alone again and he nodded. [b “You took quite the risk forcing the children on them.”] He said, his tone not the slightest bit unkind. [b “I think it may have paid off in the end.”] When he mentioned food, his stomach seemed to growl in reply as if agreeing that it was time to eat and he helped her make sure their children were settled before moving to the dining room for food.
He looked up and smiled when he noticed Justin and he shook his head. [b “At least they are eating now. They both look like they have lost some weight with the worry and I would hate if any of them made themselves ill now.”] He said as he helped himself to some food and looked up at Anastasia with a smile. [b “I am no more tired than you my love. It will take some time for us all to settle into a routine, but the fatigue is to be expected for us both.”] He took hold of her hand and smiled softly towards her. [b “I still cannot believe that we are parents.”]
Justin glanced to Willow and saw she was beginning to tire and he smiled a little at Jobe’s words, glad the two understood. He gently handed Juliet over to her mother and looked to Willow.
“Juliet isn’t the only tired little lady.” He said with a small smile, glad they got to feel normal for a small amount of time. He looked to Willow and extended his hand to help her up.
“Thank you.” He thanked them both for their hospitality before helping Willow upstairs.
“Don’t fall asleep on me.” He smiled to Willow and yawned. After days of taking things slow and easy he had to admit today had been exhausting.
“Are you hungry? I’ll get the staff to bring something up if you are.” Honestly he was quite hungry too and he realised they should have sorted something.
“You get ready for bed, I’ll go see what I can sneak from the kitchen.” He said and kissed her cheek gently before going down and putting together some food. Breads, cheese, some cold meats and tea. Nothing too heavy but enough they could pick at.
He stepped back into the room and smiled, setting down the tray by the bed and picking up some bread and cheese. He grinned to Willow,
“Would you believe me if I said I cooked it all from scratch?” He asked her.
Anastasia took Juliet gently and settled her in her cot before watching the two go and she smiled a little to Jobe.
“That went better than I expected.” She said to him quietly as she looked to the little ones.
“We should eat something too.” She said to Jobe. The little ones were settled comfortably and it seemed like they had had a really exciting day too, that had tuckered them out as well and she smiled a little. She made sure they were settled and she could keep an eye on them from the dining room.
She sat at the table and thanked the staff quietly, spotting Justin sneaking down to steal some to take up and she grinned a little. She couldn’t imagine how hard it must have been on them both so she let them be for the moment. It would take very small steps and she knew they couldn’t be rushed. They needed to get back to things at their own pace. Still, today had been a step in the right direction for them. She looked to Jobe as she took a drink of water.
“You look tired too.” Parenthood was tiring, of course but she didn’t want him to overdo everything.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] Willow’s heart was both heavy and filled with love in that moment. Justin would be a great father one day but for now she got a glimpse into the future they could have and seeing him with a child brought a smile to her face. She laughed and looked towards Anastasia and Jobe apologetically when Justin claimed he was going to help their son get up to all sorts of mischief. [b “I will have no part of that, I swear it.”] She looked down to Juliet who was making all sorts of noises as she wriggled around in her arms. It was as though she was all ready to explore even though she was only a week old. Still, she seemed content.
Justin kissed her cheek and she smiled back at him and saw Fletcher was now asleep. [b “Evidently more so than I.”] What was meant to be a brief encounter for tea turned into a pleasant afternoon of bonding with Juliet and Fletcher as well as rebuilding their friendship with Jobe and Anastasia. Not that it was broken, but it had been placed on pause while the two healed. At some point Justin and Willow swapped children so they could bond with the other.
Willow yawned and looked to Justin. [b “I think I need to rest now.”] She said quietly. Her body was still recovering from her miscarriage and the emotional strain it had caused her.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/gb7q260.jpg]] It was nice to spend time together like this. They did not bring up their loss and they were careful about what they said but this felt normal. Like soon things would go right back to the way they were. He watched as Willow yawned and moved forward to take Fletcher from her and placed him in his cot.
[b “You should rest. You both have plenty of time to bond with Fletcher and Juliet and I think that you will start to feel much better once you have a proper night sleep and a proper meal.”] He said, looking towards Anastasia and took her hand. [b “And remember that we are both here for you, whatever you need.”] He said with a smile, making sure the two of them knew how serious he was about that. He figured that if Willow was going to get some rest that Justin would go with her. He had been protective of her before but now it seemed he didn’t want to leave her alone for more than a few minutes at a time and he didn’t blame him. Jobe would be the same if they had been in the same unfortunate circumstances.
Justin watched the little one in his arms and he smiled as he looked to Willow. She suited having a child in her arms and his heart broke just a little bit right that moment for everything they had lost and he looked back.
“Well, as Godfather and uncle, I’m going to show you all the best places to hide and the best places to cause mischief but we won’t tell your parents.” He chuckled slightly to the little boy in his arms as he squirmed and smacked his lips.
Justin cradled the infant and watched him drift off to sleep.
“Least you’re not crying.” He said and looked to Juliet, who was squirming and evidently much more awake than her brother.
“Looks like I have the touch.” He smiled and kissed Willow’s cheek softly. Maybe in time they would try again, it seemed inevitable they would have another chance because it had to work out for them. He realised that sounded silly really but he honestly believed they deserved their happy ending.
Anastasia looked to Jobe and smiled a little, glad the two were at least bonding with their children. She heard Willow and giggled,
“Oh, well it would only be polite.” She laughed a little and nodded to the other female before looking to Justin. The two of them suited parenthood and she could only hope that in time they would be blessed too.
Her eyes went to Jobe and she nodded in agreement with his words. They be wonderful for their children and she hoped Justin and Willow knew how much they meant to them, and in turn how much they meant to their children and she wanted them to support them as they grew up.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/R9bcGpC.jpg]] it wasn’t as hard to see the babies as Willow expected it to be. While she was still heartbroken about her own loss, she was still happy that her friends were so content with parenthood. She had honestly fallen in love with the two babies quicker than she thought she would. Willow had been nervous about resenting them but now she saw them all she felt was love and adoration.
She glanced up when she noticed movement out of the corner of her eye and smiled when she saw Jobe and Justin enter the room. Justin had needed a friend to talk to for the last week and she knew that he was bottling up some of his feelings to spare hers. She just hoped that he felt a little bit better because he had Jobe. She was slightly nervous to see his reaction at her holding Juliet. He could have been upset or angry. Neither of their emotions have been rational this last week. Yet he seemed to sit next to her and glanced down at Juliet with a similar adoration.
The baby made a couple of soft sounds upon hearing Justin‘s voice and Willow giggled slightly. She watched as Anastasia placed Fletcher in his arms and waited for some kind of reaction. He seemed to react in a similar way to her. He clearly adored the babies as much as she did. However she would be lying if she had said that it didn’t hurt to see him holding Fletcher, knowing that in five months time he could’ve been holding his own son or daughter. Willow was over the moon with being asked to be the children’s Godmother and she smiled towards Justin as he accepted a similar honour.
[b ”Now that we are honorary aunts and uncles [i and] godparents, does that mean we have to get twice as many Christmas presents?”] She laughed quietly. It was nice to be able to joke again and enjoy the company of her family.

He had become a brother to him just like Willow had become a sister to Anastasia and in honesty he would be there for both of them through anything. Just as he knew they would be there for them through the upbringing of their children. When they went back into the conservatory Jobe smiled as he was greeted by the sight of the two women holding his children. He was not sure how Juliet had come to be in Willow’s arms, whether it was on her terms or Anastasia’s but it was nice to see the woman smiling and enjoying the company of his daughter.
As Justin lowered himself next to Willow Anastasia placed Fletcher in his arms. It was clear that she thought having some bonding time with the children might help them heal in some way. Jobe smiled and stood next to his wife, wrapping his arm around her waist as they both watched the two holding Juliet and Fletcher.
Both of them seemed to look natural with children and he sincerely hoped that Willow would be able to find it within herself to try for another child. He couldn’t imagine how devastating it must’ve been to lose a child in the way that she did. Miscarriages were perfectly normal and common in the first few months of pregnancy but to lose a baby because one was stuck in an fire might of been harder, especially since they all knew it could be have been avoided if she had not been in the stables, but no one can change the past.
