A/N: Weekly Drabble Challenge #48
As she blew a gentle raspberry on the bottom of her daughter’s foot, Donna watched in amusement as little Evelyn giggled and cooed her enjoyment. Lifting her up, Donna walked leisurely across the room to the aquarium set into the wall. As they approached, Evelyn’s eyes grew wide at the faint blue light cast off from the glass. Grinning, Donna pointed to one of the creatures inside.
“Look Evie, it’s Daruga. Can you say hello to Daruga?”
Evelyn slapped the glass with a laugh, following the path of the fish with her eyes.
Donna brushed a kiss to her head, “Good job. Now, let’s see if we can’t find Miri. She might be hiding.”
As they worked their way around the aquarium, naming and greeting each creature inside, neither of them noticed the tall figure of the Doctor in the doorway. He stood leaned up against the door-frame, arms crossed, smiling. Pushing himself off, he walked quietly across the room to the aquarium. Still out of Donna’s line of sight, he reached up and gently pushed a stray curl behind Donna’s ear. Leaning into the touch, Donna smiled and slid her eyes closed for a moment.
“How long have you been standing there?”
The Doctor hummed as he moved to wrap his arms around her waist, “Long enough to know that our daughter loves getting raspberries on her feet.”
Donna chuckled and smoothed out Evelyn’s hair. She turned up to the Doctor, “Penny for your thoughts?”
The Doctor tightened his hold and dropped his lips to Donna’s neck.
Pressing a kiss there, he murmured, “Life, legacy, and love all wrapped up in two people. Nothing could be better.”
He missed Donna’s smile as she covered his hand with hers.
Turning her head, she whispered, “How about three?”
She felt the Doctor go very still behind her.
She squeezed the hand covering her stomach with a grin.
“I guess you could say Mum’s the word, Doctor.”
The Doctor suddenly began to shake and Donna could feel his tears on her neck. Reaching up, she cradled his head to her as he pulled her flush to him.
Taking a shaky breath he croaked out, “I love you.”
Donna breathed out, “Love you too.”They stayed there, wrapped in each other while Evelyn continued her morning greetings to the fish.
