Mia stirred and woke up in the middle of the night. She snuggled up more against Draco and tried to nod off again.

But she couldn't shake the sudden, odd feeling of hunger. She looked over her husband and wondered how deeply he was sleeping. Maybe he wouldn't mind giving her some company?

So she kissed Draco's cheek and whispered, "Draco? Draco, are you awake, honey?"

Draco shifted against her in his sleep as he made a quizzical sound. He didn't wake, though one of his arms tightened marginally against her as he settled back into slumber. It had been a long day of reports, and it had been his day to keep an eye on Cepheus while Mia took care of classes.

Draco shifted more as she moved his arm, and his eyes started to flutter open. A sliver of grey peered out.

Draco rolled over on his back, and scratched his head thoughtfully as he yawned.

"Now? Was Cepheus crying?"

Draco started to sit up, moving the sheets to the side so he could get up as well.

"In the mood for anything in particular in the kitchen, darling?"

Draco slowly got up, and mouthed the words, 'pickled Salyan cactus?' to himself. That's odd.

"I'll check the pantry."

He took a few steps, and shoved the palms of his hands into his lower back as he bent his spine back to stretch. The wizard then made his way to the nursery in passing. A hand came out to touch the small of Mia's back.

"How's our little one?"

He reached over her to bestow his own kiss on Cepheus's forehead. His free hand came up to briefly smooth the baby fine hair.

Draco nodded and turned toward the rest of the room. This didn't require a wand, and his wandless magic had improved immensely over the years. Saying the words still provided a good focus however, so he murmured it quietly to the room.

A few sweets and cookies appeared under the toddler's pillow who while sleepy did give an amused coo at the floating treats.

"Cepheus, really. Time to learn restraint," he shook his head. Even though part of him was proud how strong his son's emerging magic was, clearly evidenced from his unique heritage. Still he hid the amused smirk behind a more neutral expression.

Draco gave a quick smile before walking alongside Mia.

"He'll learn, and I'll go ahead to look." He started to walk faster to head to the kitchen.

He waved a hand at that as he located the jar toward the back of the higher shelf. An Accio was easy enough to fix that little snag.

"Found them. You want them on a plate, or just eating out of the jar tonight?" Yes he's smirking with some amusement.

Still smirking, he handed her the jar with the lid already loosened and floating just above.

"Can't say that I have." He tentatively took one and nibbled it.

"Not sure I like it."

Draco shrugged even as he remarked, "It might be nothing. Only... the last time you had cravings like this... well?" His hands went out to the sides as he gestured.

"Have you noticed anything else different lately?" Please don't make him ask about womanly issues. Mia, he will whine. More than usual.

Draco grew very quiet at that. Have they? He tried to remember the last time they used it. The problem was, they had been intimate so rarely these day. Either too tired from work or taking care of Cepheus. And of course they had less free time these days except visits to Milliways. And even then their son was often with them.

"...Maybe not as much as we should have."

"How wonderful, someone finally decided to apply logic to those horrid Muggle things," Draco dryly replied as he followed her.

"Right. I'm right here, Mia," He quietly said after she came out, and gave her hand a reassuring squeeze. He also leaned over, bringing their joined hands up to kiss the back of hers.

He moved closer, his free hand coming back behind her shoulder to hold her close.

"It's been a few minutes," he agreed.

From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com

He leaned over to give her another kiss before his hand came to rest over hers.

"When do you want to tell Cepheus? After your check up?"

From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com

"Of course," he smiled. He knew how talkative Cepheus was getting already.

"He shouldn't be an only child like we were. How long did you want to wait on the news then?"
