When You Have A Child

James Bond/M

Chapter 1

James rolled over in bed when he heard the soft singing coming from the baby monitor beside the bed. He looked at the clock and noticed that it was just after 7am, he got out of bed and walked to the nursery. The door was open and he smiled to himself when he saw M holding their Daughter. His mind drifted back to 3 weeks earlier when M had gone into labour and the chaos that followed, all he could think about was how lucky they had all been to make it to the Hospital safely. He walked up beside her and place an arm around her shoulder.

"She slept right through this time." M smiled up at him.

"She's an angel, you look like you slept well too."

"I did, best nights sleep I've had in a while."

"Do you want some breakfast."

"Mmmm, I'll be down in a minute. I'll just feed her first."

"Okay, don't be long." He said, kissing her.

Sammy was in the kitchen making breakfast when Q walked in carrying 3 laptops.

"Q, what the hell."

"Oh these, they need repaired. I brought them home to do them last night but I got a little distracted." He smirked.

"Oh yeah, sorry about that. Was worth it though, wasn't it."

"It was, anyway it's been a bit quiet at work so I may aswell get these done."

"Well rememeber I have a dress fitting today with Eve."

"Do I get to see it."

"Like hell you do, not before the wedding."

"Do you really believe in all that superstitious clap trap."

"Yes I do, you wanna make something of it."

"I wouldn't dare."

"Good, now are you having breakfast or what."

"This gonna become a thing in the mornings, you bossing me around." He asked.

"Hey, if you've changed your mind about marrying me then…"

Q walked over to her and scooped her up in his arms and planted a firm but loving kiss on her lips.

"As if I'd ever change my mind about marrying you."

James was just putting some scrambled eggs on the plates when M entered the kitchen.

"Right on time, Ava okay."

"Sound asleep."

"Sit down, breakfast is ready."

"You're becoming very good in the kitchen."

"I know, I surprised even myself. So you all set for today."

"What's today."

"Aren't you supposed to be going to a dress fitting with Eve and Sammy."

"Oh my god I completely forgot, but Ava."

"Well I'm here and I am her Father, I am capable you know."

"Oh love I know you are. There is something you'll have to do today."

"Name it."

"You need to take her to Abbey today to get weighed."

"Oh, okay fine."

"Now you take her in the Mazda, if I find out that you drove our Daughter across London in your Aston Martin, I will string you up."

"Is that a promise." He smirked.

"James, I'm serious."

"What do you think I am. I love Ava and you more than anything in the world and I would never endanger your lives."

"I'm sorry, I'm being over-protective again, aren't I."

"You're entitled to be. Listen, there's something I wanted to talk to you about."

"Oh, what's that then."

"We've been together now for just over a year."

"I know, I can't quite believe it."

"I know and I'm still calling you M."

"Oh, I see."

"Look, I understand that at work you're M but here in the privacy of our own home. I could understand in the beginning, not wanting me to call you by your real name. Not knowing how things would turn out between us but I'm not going anywhere and we do still plan on getting married don't we?"

"Oh of course, I've just been so used to being called M or Mum that I've never needed my real name."

"Well you do now, because I'm sick of calling you M. So, with your permission can I please call you Emma at home."

"You may." She smiled, kissing him.

"Good, I love you….Emma."

"I love you too darling." She smiled.
