"Park?" She asked. You looked at Grayson. Grayson shrugged and nodded. "Park!" She yelled once again. You smiled.
"Well, I'm going to put on a shirt then," Grayson said, standing up from the couch. You nodded and he left, going upstairs. June turned back to you and grinned. You raised your eyebrows at her and she giggled.
"Why's someone in such a good mood today?" You asked with a smile as Grayson came down the stairs.
"Daddy and me went to jew-" Grayson cut her off.
"Princess, can you help daddy find my water bottle?" He asked. June nodded and you put her on the ground. She ran around the living room, lifting up cushions and pillows to find her daddy's water bottle. "Never mind, angel, I found it," Grayson said with a smile.
June looked up from the couch that she was looking under. You smiled as Grayson held up his water bottle before walking into the kitchen to fill it. "June change too?" She asked you. You looked at her pajama bottoms and old t-shirt. You nodded.
"Looks like someone changed for their nap," You said standing. Stretching your arms. June came running to you and you pulled her onto your hip. "Alright, we're gonna go change," You said, walking past Grayson. Grayson looked up from the sink and nodded.
You watched as June pulled on the overalls you'd picked for her, over the yellow t-shirt she wore at least 3 times a week. You smiled as she put her hands on her hips and posed for you. "Look nice?" She asked. You laughed and nodded. She giggled reaching up to you and you pulled her off the bed and put her on the floor.
She reached up for your hand and you let her take it, leading you downstairs. Grayson was already, waiting for you guys to come downstairs. He looked up from his laces and grinned. "Look at you guys," He said. You smiled and rolled your eyes. June giggled, and ran to Grayson who set her on his knee to help her with her sneakers.
"We're walking?" You confirmed. Grayson nodded, strapping down June's shoes. You smiled, slipping on your own shoes. Putting her down, Grayson reached down for her hand. She put her little one in his, and the three of you stepped out of the house, ready for a walk.
"Daddy run?" June asked as a couple of blocks down. Grayson sighed, shaking his head. She pouted, making Grayson chuckle. You smiled.
"Daddy's tired today, princess," Grayson told her. She nodded at him, kicking a rock as she walked. "'was up all night editing tomorrow's video," Grayson said, shaking his head. You smiled.
"E didn't help?" You asked. Grayson rolled his eyes at you. "Awe."
"His girl's pregnant now, that's the only thing that matters to him," Grayson grumbled as they arrived at the park. June, not listening to their conversation, pulled away from Grayson's hand and ran towards the playscape. You smiled as Grayson took your hand instead.
"Makes sense, wouldn't I be the only thing that mattered if I was pregnant?" You asked with a smile. Grayson gave you a small smile as you made your way over to a bench under a tree, providing shade.
"You would," He confirmed, resting his head on your shoulder. You smiled, rubbing circles on his knuckles, resting your head on top of his. "I love you," He mumbled out of nowhere, watching June climb the ladder, making sure she doesn't fall.
"Someone have a bad day?" You asked as he buried his face in your neck. He shook his head and you sighed, running your free hand through his hair. "What's wrong then?" You asked. He sighed.
"You never ask about her mom," Grayson whispered. You looked down at him, his face still hidden. You sighed.
"I know you'll tell me when you're ready," You replied honestly. Grayson let out a loud sigh, his breath tickling your neck.
Of course, you've wondered where June's mother was and what happened to her, but you weren't going to ask him about it. You didn't know how much June knew about it, considering she called you mom, and besides, Gray would tell you when he wants to.
"Can I tell you now?" He asked. You nodded, squeezing his hand in yours. He pulled away from you and sat up straight, leaning back into the bench. "She- we-" But he cut himself off, not being able to get anything out. You leaned over and kissed his cheek.
"Take your time and tell me when you're ready," You said quietly. He nodded, rubbing his hand over his face. You sighed, grabbing that hand too and holding it in your hands.
"It was an accident, I was drunk, I didn't even like her and we- I didn't mean to get her pregnant," Grayson whispered. You nodded. "And then she came to me, weeks later, saying it was mine and that she was keeping it." He sighed before continuing
"I wasn't going to abandon her then, it was my baby, I loved it, even she wasn't even born yet." You nodded and smiled as he watched June go down the slide, a little squeal leaving her lips. "We weren't like together or anything, I was just ready to take care of her when she was born, I figured I'd get custody and stuff too, right?" You nodded and he leaned his head on your shoulder again.
"And then my princess was born and I was there, when she was born, I cut the, the tummy cord," He said. You smiled at his choice of words. "I loved her, but, but, she didn't." You frowned.
"She just gave birth to her and looked at her and frowned and said she didn't want her," Grayson said. You felt him clench his fists and interlaced your fingers to help him relax. "She said I could have her, like June was an object and I almost punched her y/n, she was out baby how could she even-" Grayson's voice was raising and you let go of his hands to rub up and down his back.
"Shh... it's okay," You whispered. Grayson took a breath and nodded. He sighed and nodded at you, ready to continue.
"So I told her that it wasn't fair to June, that she needed a mom and you know what she said, she said we should put June up for adoption, if it was that big of a deal," Your eyes widened, looking over at the little girl, now sitting in the sandbox, smile on her face. "And I said I'd take care of her by myself, and I got custody of her, not that she even gave a fuck, and June was mine," Grayson finished. You smiled.
"And she has a wonderful father," You told him, pointing out the silver lining. "She's being raised right." Grayson nodded and you sat in silence for a moment.
"She died, y/n," Grayson said after a while. You looked up at him. "She got into a car crash two months later, she died," Grayson said. Your eyes widened and Grayson rubbed his face with his hand, running it through his hair.
"June never got to meet her?" You asked. Grayson nodded and put a smile on his face as June came running towards you two. "Hey angel," You said as she ran to you, hands on Grayson's knees.
"Daddy, swings!" She yelled. Grayson chuckled, standing up. He stretched his arms before reaching it out to June. She jumped up and down as she led him towards the swing set. You stayed at the bench as you watched Grayson lift her up and into the kiddie swings and began to push her.
"Having fun, princess?" You heard him ask her. You smiled as she nodded, gripping onto the chains. You stood up, walking towards them, both your phone and Grayson's in your hand. You walked to Grayson and he looked over at you after he gave one hard push, enough to last a few swings.
You wrapped your arms around him pulling him into you as you pressed your lips to his. You felt him smile and he wrapped his arms around your waist. You pulled away, resting your forehead against his. He looked down at you and you smiled, kissing him one last time.
"You're doing a great job," You told him. He raised his eyebrows and smiled at you. "Raising her by yourself," You finished. Grayson gave you a soft chuckle.
"How am I by myself, if I have you?"
