As in all my Hawk and Dove stories, Jasmine is Hank and Don's mother.

Disclaimer: I own nothing, this goes for all chapters.

Chapter 1

Hank was excited. He'd just been told that he would have a new little brother, and he couldn't be more excited. To his 4 year old mind, this was about the best thing that could possibly happen. He gave an exuberant cry, and reverently laid a hand on his mother's stomach, slightly swollen, and gave an excited giggle.

"I love him alweady!"

Jasmine smiled. "We're going to have to be very gentle with him, okay? He's going to be very small and break easily. So we're going to have to be careful."

"I will be mommy. I'll be sooooo careful. Nothing's gonna hurt him. I won't let it."

Jasmine gave a wary smile. She was pretty sure that pretty sure that soon Hank would be bored with the prospect, especially after the baby arrived. She was also sure that Hank wasn't going to be gentle. He never was. Oh well. She'd find some way to protect the new baby from his older brother.

Suddenly, Hank started running away.

"Hank, what are you doing?"

"Making cards, mommy! Welcome cards for baby!"

Jasmine shook her head. Hank just didn't get it.
