Jayce flinched slightly at the mention of her work. “Evelynn, I know that I’m not going to be able to stop you from doing your work entirely, and it would be unfair of me to do so even if I could, but once your pregnancy starts to show, maybe you should hold off until the baby is born,” he said, aware that his words might not be met positively. “I know you are more than capable of taking care of yourself out there, but I worry about the effect all that running and killing will have on the baby.”
Evelynn’s face fell into a look partly like she wanted to snap his neck but partly like a kicked puppy. The woman lived for her work and, as sad as it sounds, she was proud of that fact! What the hell was she without it….? Despite the confused rage on the inside, she appeared perfectly calm if only a bit confused.
"But I- I mean…. Define showing….”
Jayce gulped, seeing his suggestion was not being met with much positivity. “I’m not saying you have to stop completely. After all, you could always just do what you want, who am I stop you? All I’m saying is that, for the safety of the child, for the last 3 months, I’d prefer if you didn’t take those jobs. I know it’s a part of yourself, and I understand how difficult it would be for you, but it’s just what I think would be best,” Jayce explained, his hands once again interlocking with hers. “I just want what’s best for all of us.”
Weither he realized it or not, it was actually a rather smart move for Jayce to have taken her hands up again in his own when he did. Instead of lashing out like she normally would have, the Widowmaker paused and bit her lip lightly, eyes locked with is, shining nothing but sadness and confusion then.
"But…. Three whole months?” She groaned, making an odd face. “What the hell would I possibly do that entire time? I mean I’m assuming the Fields are off limits by then as well….”
"I understand it will be tough, but hey, it’ll give us some time to really be together as well. Plus, if anything happened to either of you…I…I don’t know what I’d do," he said, gripping her hands tighter and hugging her closer. "I don’t want to seem like this overbearing partner, but I just want to keep you safe, at least for as long as I can."
She groaned, rolling her eyes at first. ”That’s all well and good but what am I gonna do when you’re not here? I’ll be bored out of my fucking mind….” She sighed then and allowed the man to continue, blinking as he spoke of harm coming to her or the child.
Evelynn wasn’t used to someone caring that deeply for her…. Fate had been the only one, but she was too blind back then to see that. Now…. With Jayce everything was so different. Her eyes were finally open to the world and it was honestly rather incredible to her.
She finally sighed deeply and nodded to him, looking just over her shoulder as she grumbled and unhappy agreement.
"Fine…. I guess I can try and lay off…. I just…. I don’t know what to do with myself…. I’m a horrid cook, I’ve never watched TV in my life, my hobby is killing…. What the hell do normal people do around here when they can’t work?"
"They have this thing called ‘fun’, you might have heard of it," Jayce said with a chuckle as his hands quickly moved from holding hers to tickling her sides.
Evelynn pouted slightly at him and narrowed her eyes a bit but her impending words were cut off when he squeaked and wiggled at the tickling. Finally she batted his hands away and groan.
"Jayce, common. I know what fun is- but my version of fun…. Well apparently sin’t healthy for the baby." She sighed, tone laced with disappointment.
