a/n: I didn't find out about the first round of the Twilight 25 until it was halfway through, but I find the idea exciting. Twenty-five prompts for 25 drabbles and/or one-shots over the course of three months. Powered by the Twilight 25 Community on Livejournal.

The Twilight Twenty-Five
Prompt: Comfort
Pen name: starshinedown
Pairing: Charlie, Bella
Rating: K+

The Wizard of Oz is playing, and he's holding his little girl. They are on the floor, his legs folded in front of him, Bella on his lap, her head resting against his chest.

There's a towel draped over his shoulder and to the right is a bucket, both there in case the bathroom is too far away when she's sick.

Wrapped around them is her favorite blanket, light blue and soft. All her three years of life, Bella's needed that blanket to sleep. It, in combination with his arms, will be what she needs to get any rest tonight.

a/n: It's ridiculously difficult for me to limit my blathering to 100 words. Sheesh.

More to come!
