Disclaimer: The WWE is not mine nor are any of it's child branches, it is the 96% property of the McMahon's and God bless the bastards that work for them. I respect the sexual preferences and identities of all the wrestlers on WWE roster, and who they share a bed with is really none of my business.
Warnings: Ted's kind of a brat, but it's fluff, Daddy!Randy
"Wait!" Ted snapped at his retreating lover's back "You're leaving?"
"You make it seem like I'm leaving you, Teddy" Randy slipped on his leather jacket "I'm just going to see my accountant."
"Can't you do it some other day?" the blonde complained "I mean, it's our vacation! The one time off we've had in his months and now your tax guys finds something wrong?!"
"It's just some mix-ups, I'll be back before six, I promise."
"Teddy" that on-the-edge tone silenced the blonde, bringing a certain look to his eyes. Randy looked his boy over, realizing something he hadn't thought of.
"You don't want to be alone with her, do you?"
Ted flushed, "That's stupid."
"It's true" Randy was amazed "You don't want to be with my daughter alone."
"I didn't expect this from you" Randy scrubbed a hand over his face "She's a baby, Ted, and she's asleep. What's she going to do? Run to her mother's house and tell her that she saw her daddy fucking some hot blonde guy on the kitchen counter? She can't even talk."
"There's a bottle in the fridge, pacifiers in the nursery, along with anything you need to change her" Randy snagged his keys, giving his lover a kiss on the cheek when he passed "Don't worry so much."
And then Orton was gone, leaving Ted DiBiase Jr. home alone with Alanna Marie Orton.
Ted looked toward the stairs, deciding he should go check on her. He was already getting paranoid.
When Randy got divorced, Ted had waited three weeks and then come right out and told him how he felt. It was slow going at first, but Ted had managed to heal the broken heart of the man he loved. They clicked so easily, and both knew all past wives and girlfriends were just mistakes. Two months in, Randy asked Ted to move in, and when agreed to they had to sex over every inch of DiBiase's old house to give it a proper goodbye (and their new lives a hello.)
But Ted had looked over one small thing…baby Alanna.
Randy and Samantha shared joint custody of her. Ted couldn't look at her the first few times, afraid his very gaze would taint the innocent babe. For even though Ted got with Randy well after the break-up, Samantha had always found a way to blame him for the divorce. He had never even held his lover's daughter, always seeing her cradled in the arms of her father.
Ted opened the door of the nursery, gazing around the light blue colored room. Every piece of furniture was pearl, all the way to the cradle, and all cushions were of the best quality. Randy had spent more money than he'd ever admit on his daughter's room, giving her one large enough so she could grow into and change it the older he got.
Ted crept over to the cradle, chewing his lip as he gazed down upon the sleeping babe. Pale skinned, covered in a pink t-shirt and diaper, her thin crop of dark hair jutting up in spikes. Her little hands were curled into fists by her head, mouth open, soft breaths lost in the low tinkling the silver wind chimes by the window sill.
He reached out to touch her, but drew back.
Ted was pathetic, he knew that. This was the daughter of Randy and his ex-wife, a product to show they had once loved on another. Something to show that Randy had loved someone else more than him, had shared his heart.
Oh, who was he kidding? He didn't care about that, he was afraid!
He was afraid he'd hurt her.
God, he wanted this child to love him. He didn't know why, just that he did. The more he looked at her, the more his heart ached in pure joy. This was Randy's genes passed on, a little babe that brought the best out in The Legend Killer. This was a source of happiness of the one he loved, and so that made her all that more special in DiBiase's eyes.
Of course, he had always adored children.
Alanna's face screwed up, and she started to get fussy. She squirmed around, eyes opening up. Not even a year old, barely able to stand on her own and she already knew how to get what she wanted.
The moment she started to cry, Ted threw aside all his doubts and picked her up. He did every trick he knew about babies…cooing to her, petting her, rocking her, but she still cried.
Ted plopped down in the rocking chair after twenty minutes, the wailing babe trying to crawl over his shoulders. He was ready to start crying himself, then realized the growing toddler was reaching for something. He followed the line of those grasping fingers, sighing when he too spotted the bubblegum pink pacifier sitting there on the pearl side table.
Ted leant for it and snatched it up, Alanna's fingers following its path to her mouth.
It wasn't even seconds before she stopped crying, the room now filled with the content sucking of the child.
"There ya go" Ted leant back into the rocking chair, balancing the little girl on his thigh "That wasn't so bad, now was it?"
Alanna stared at him with those icy blue eyes so like her father's palms rubbing together as her cheeks flexed with each such. The blonde waited a moment, then slowly started to rock. He scooted her a bit closer, letting her rest on his hip now.
"You're going to break hearts" Ted stated out of the blue "If you end up with half the looks your daddy has, you'll have boys falling over themselves."
Alanna was playing with his shirt, blinking down at him.
"If he didn't pull all that Viper shit, your daddy would have a helluva fan base on looks alone" Ted stated thoughtfully "Keep his hair longer, quit buggin' his eyes out…otherwise, he'd damn perfect."
He snapped his mouth shut, firmly reminding himself that Alanna was learning words now and he couldn't cuss.
Ted rocked her for a few minutes of silence, so his gasp was loud when she suddenly dove forward into his chest. Alanna snuggled right below his chin, letting her cheek press into his t-shirt. She gave a heavy sigh, little chest heaving, before her hands curled in the hem of the material.
Ted's heart melted, and he knew then that this little girl had stolen his heart.
Randy entered his home, letting his shoes and coat fall where they may. He tossed his keys aside, making his way toward the living room.
The sounds of comical voice's came down the hall, and he followed them right into the living room. What he found there made him smile…pleased.
Ted was sitting cross-legged on the couch, Alanna in his lap facing the TV. She was chewing on a teething ring, wide eyes on the screen. Ted kept a careful hold on her, watching the Disney movie as well. Alice in Wonderland, and Alanna was transfixed by the bright colors and voices.
"It was the best butter" Ted quoted, nuzzling the top of her head with his nose.
"Bes - uter" Alanna spoke around the chilled ring, giggling when she was tickled.
"That's right" Ted teased, smiling brightly "The very best butter."
Randy leant against the door frame, simply watching.
There was hope for his little family after all.
Wow, this was nothing like I planned it to be. But Daddy!Teddy is cute too, and I loved Alice in Wonderland when I was little.
And that extra chappie you guys requested? All yours! Feel very special, I've never written per-request before.
