Author's note: no French this time, I promise! You can say this is a continuation of my one shot "Give me cake or give me death". Thank you for your kind words ♥ Have a lovely day/peaceful night!
The Friar family, who had just spent a beautiful night of Thanksgiving with their families and friends at the Hunter's house they had moved into a few years after Katy married Shawn on the roof of the Matthews' apartment building, were walking down the streets of New York city as the sun was setting down. A young family was the first one of the group to leave because Mrs. Friar, who was now almost seven months pregnant, was exhausted after the eventful night, full of sharing memories from middle school to college, celebrating Maya and Zay's engagement, Farkle and Smackle's, better known as The Smarkle Corporation first anniversary as husband and wife, and so much more.
Saying that Riley was exhausted would have been an understatement. She could barely stand on her own two feet. But the always stubborn brunette insisted to walk home and not to take the cab.
And Lucas just couldn't say no to his beautiful wife.
The two of them had just passed John Quincy Adams Middle School when a beautiful melody reached brunette's ears. Riley's eyes held so much love, so much adoration ever since she found out she would be a mother to Lucas' child. She was so full of hope and joy, honesty and trust.
Lucas stopped and glanced at his wife smiling at her with so much admiration in his eyes, knowing all too well what was about to happen.
"I thought you were full?" Lucas asked chuckling as Riley pulled him closer to her and smiled sweetly.
"I love you," she whispered batting her eyelashes.
"And I love you, sweetheart," the blond said before pecking her lips.
"So..." Riley trailed off, hoping he would understand what she wanted.
"So?" Lucas asked wrapping his arms around her waist, her belly pressing to his torso."You want something, don't ya?"
Riley nodded her head excited and pecked his nose giggling like a little girl.
"We want ice cream," the brunette announced. She knew Lucas could say no to her wishes, especially when she asked for can or all sorts of cakes, and ice cream. Especially ice cream.
But she also knew that he couldn't say no when she pulled the "we" card.
"We?" he whispered softly as he placed his hands on her belly.
"Yes, we," Riley reassured beaming at him. As if on cue, their little joy started kicking Riley's ribs and Riley immediately closed her eyes, biting her bottom lip while she tried to hold back the smile. "See?"
That beautiful smile of his Riley had fallen in love with all those years ago adorned his features as he knelt down, not even caring about other pedestrians.
"Looks like we're getting ice cream, little bean."
"How many times do I have to tell you our baby will be a bear?" Riley questioned when stood up and laced their fingers before going to the ice cream truck that was parked on the other side of the street.
"Probably until the baby is born and you see it's a girl."
"I am telling you, it's a boy!"
"Why are you so sure?" the blond questioned.
"I call it Mother's intuition," Riley answered.
"Remind me again why did I agree to not find out the gender?"
