All aboard the feels train!
I don't know if this is honestly any good, but I had the idea and I wanted to write something, so here ya go!
You had to admit that, when you hurried to the infirmary that evening to tell him, you hadn't exactly been expecting his reaction.
Law spun around to stare at you almost startled, his skin paling and him losing the grip on the tube he had been holding in his hand, it shattering on the floor.
"What did you just say?" He questioned, holding in his breath as if the mere action of exhaling would prevent him from hearing you.
The soft smile that had decorated your face vanished upon seeing his contorted expression, and you stared at him in confusion when he froze in place with his eyes widened in shock.
"What's wrong?" You innocently asked, your forehead creasing more by the minute.
His face finally darted in your direction, his gray orbs drilling into your soul as he approached and cupped your cheeks. For a second, the gesture seemed almost kind, but then you noticed that he was actually checking your irises.
You took his hands away from you and stepped back, tensing up and almost glaring at him.
"What's wrong with you? It's clear that you're not happy with the news, but you're really creeping me out," you protested.
He snapped out of his trance and lowered his gaze sorrowfully.
"I'm sorry. It's just... You can't... It's not..." He sighed, letting himself fall onto his chair and covering his face with his palms. "What are we gonna do?"
It was clearly a rhetorical question, one you couldn't understand without the context you hadn't been provided with, so you just stood there, arms laced over your stomach in a defensive stance. He didn't move, however, which prompted you to hesitantly step forward and crouch before him, resting your hands on top of his knees.
"Law, talk to me."
He dropped his hands from his face to meet your gaze, his shoulders slumping as he breathed out.
"I can't have a child."
You had never heard fear in your captain's voice before; hesitation? Yes, but fear? Never. You sweat-dropped.
"But... why not?"
He rubbed the back of his neck.
"You know about my past and the Amber Lead Syndrome," he paused, squinting his eyes and licking his bottom lip. "It's... hereditary, (Y/N)-ya. I wouldn't have even made it out alive hadn't it been for..." Law trailed off, his breath halting, and shook his head. "There's no chance of a baby of mine surviving."
