A/N: Just a little snippet of a scene, and not really an actual story. It's fluffy and sweet and parental and not much else. XD

"A Shadow In the Window"

*

*

"Hi."

A voice: breathless, loving.

"Hi, honey. I'm your mama. I'm your mama . . . "

She is so beautiful. You watch her, awed, as she coos and croons and coddles to the newborn in her arms.

You have a son.

The doctor is speaking, but the only voice you can hear is hers, as she coos and croons and coddles.

"Baby . . . you're my baby . . . oh, you're so precious, I love you so much. You are going to be such an amazing man."

She is so beautiful. Her hair looks like hell and her skin is sticky with sweat, and she's still struggling for air. And you wonder, how is it that she looks lovelier now than ever before? How is it possible, that such a glorious woman could become even more so?

There is a shadow in the window.

"Our little Jack," your wife coos and croons as she coddles the child in her arms. "Our darling little captain."

And the shadow smiles.

You return the gesture.

You thought he'd like that.
