ooc: Happy Easter, loves. (To those who celebrate) And a happy spring day to everyone else! I’ll reply to the para later tonight after visiting with family.
Love to all! xoxo
Naya chuckled as Lily said Landon is her friend and kissed her blonde locks gently. “Having a son? It’s amazing. Mark loves it. He’s having his own little mini me and totally enjoys it.”, Naya chuckled and looked at Landon. He was the perfect combination of Naya’s dark hair and eyes and Mark’s smirk and even his personality seemed to be just like his father’s. “Would you wanna have a son? A little Chris or a little Darren with curly hair?”, she smiled and bit her lower lip as she thought about it. It was a cute imagination for sure.
Chris zoned in on Naya’s words, smiling at her sentiments about her son. “I’ve thought about adopting again… Or maybe using a surrogate. Because I can’t lie to you - the idea of a little boy with Darren’s curly hair melts my heart.” He admitted, playing with Landon’s fingers. “But Darren and I aren’t there, yet. Maybe after we’re official, and there’s been some talk of marriage - I’ll bring it up.” He suggested, shrugging a shoulder. Lily snuggled into Naya’s lap further, resting her head against the woman. “Someone skipped her nap…” He mused, poking Lily’s side.
He’ll hate me for posting that picture. :D
Maybe, but I love you for it.
Darren smiled at him and nodded, moving closer to Chris and he kissed him back. He chuckled. “I can take that and live with it,” he hummed and smiled, wrapping his arms around him. “We do make a great team, don’t we?” the musician kissed his lover on the lips again, letting out a breath of relief as he held his face, deepening the kiss carefully. He pulled away for a moment. “I might get carried away with this freedom to kiss you as much as I want… feel free to stop me,” he chuckled, teasingly.
"Perfect team." Chris confirmed, startled by how much he meant it, before finding his lips occupied. The kiss was deep and searching, just the way he liked to be kissed. He hummed, eyes flickering to Darren’s lips as the man spoke again. "Not going to stop you." He murmured, cheeks flushed with heat. "I don’t have to ignore the way it makes me feel anymore." He added, whispering as he slid a hand around the back of Darren’s neck, fingers dipping into his loose curls. "I can’t believe I tried to replace someone that makes me feel this alive…" He said quietly, his face pressed to Darren’s.
Naya smirked. “Yeah, I do. I can sense it…thanks to my sidekick mexican third eye.”, she winked and laughed a little. “No, seriously. If you two finall get it together, I definitely think it can be something amazing. You’ve always been close.”, Naya smiled as she saw Chris interacting with Landon. It was crazy to think that he was turning one next month. The latina ran her hand through Lily’s blonde hair and pulled her up on her lap. “He already your best friend, isn’t he, Lily?”, she asked and kissed the little girl’s head gently.
"Is that anything like Spidey senses?" Chris quipped, before laughing along with Naya. It warmed his heart to see one of his friends take to Lily in such a loving way. He knew it would be important for Lily to grow up with female influences. Thankfully, she would have Naya and Ashley. Lily looked up at Naya like she was the greatest thing since sliced bread. "Yah! He my fwend." She said. "I love him." Her voice chimed musically and her eyes twinkled as she reached to hold Landon’s hand. Chris watched them and smiled. "I think he loves you, too, sweet pea." He commented, resting his chin on Landon’s head. "So, Nay… What’s it like having a boy?" He asked curiously.
Naya smiled and bit her lower lip. She loved her friendship with Chris and she loved that no matter how much she fucked up in the past, he was always around. He never judged her and even though they fought every now and then, he’s still around. “If you and Darren will get to that point…and by the way, I’m sure that’ll happen…”, she added with a wink, “I’ll be right by your side. I would be extremly stupid if not.” Landon pushed himself up against the couch and smiled up to Chris and Naya, holding his tiny hand out for his uncle.
"Wait… You really think Darren and I will get married?" Chris asked in stunned curiosity. It wasn’t that he hadn’t considered the possibility. He knew he’d be lucky to marry Darren. But it just seemed so weird to hear someone else confirming the idea. Distracted by Landon, Chris giggled letting the little baby grab his finger. "You are the sweetest little prince." He mused, picking Landon up to kiss his head. "And you’re getting so big… Pretty soon you’ll be chasing Lily all over." Lily looked up at the sound of her name, blushing and giggling. She clamored on the couch and cuddled up to Naya. "Landon my buddy." She chimed.
Naya laughed a little and wipped away her tears with the back of her hand. She couldn’t really remember the last time she saw Chris crying. He wasn’t the guy who would cry that easily and it just showed her how much he really cared for her. She hugged him back tightly and closed her eyes. “You’re my best friend, Chris. And through all the crap that I’ve been through, you stood by my side.”, she pulled back and cupped his cheeks, wipping away his tears with her thumb. “I’m just really happy to have you in my life.”, she smiled and kissed his cheek.
"You’ve been my cheerleader since day one, Naya. And granted I don’t fill out a uniform quite like you - I figure friends need to have each other’s backs." Chris smiled, blushing as Naya touched his face. His cheeks turned redder at the kiss, and he giggled a little. "I’m happy, too, Nay. I sometimes suck at sentiments, but I hope you know how important you are to me." Chris hummed, kissing Naya’s cheek in return. "You kind of push me to be a better version of myself. I hope if Darren and I ever get around to marriage that you’ll be by my side, too."
Naya smiled. “The amazing daddy thing is true…100%.”, she said and waited for an answer. She laughed as Chris said he’d want to wear a suit. “As long as you’re there, you can wear whatever you want.”, she said and felt so happy in that moment. The actress hugged him back and closed her eyes, feeling herself tear up a little at his words. “Thank you, Chris. That really means a lot.”, she said and chuckled, wiping away a tear before it fell down her cheek.
"Oh, Naya… Never give me that kind of freedom." Chris snickered, winking at her. "I might just show up in my pajamas." He settled into the hug, rubbing his friend’s back, then pulled back to see her getting emotional. "No, no, no…" He shook his head, blowing a raspberry on her cheek to make her laugh. "If you cry - I’ll cry, and then we’ll make puddles. It’ll be a fiasco." He tried to laugh, feeling his own eyes brimming with tears. "Darn you, Rivera." He scolded. sniffling. He pulled Naya into another hug, chin hooked over her shoulder. "I love you… And I don’t know why but the fact you want me to stand with you is making me all gooey inside." He whispered, trying to blink back tears.
Darren kissed back, and then smiled when Chris started giggling, as he held him closely. He laughed softly. “Well, that wouldn’t have been all too surprising, would it?” he smirked a bit. He followed him onto the bed and nodded as Chris pulled him there with him and held his hands, still smiling fondly. “We can make it work somehow,” he said, and kissed him on the lips softly. “And I know both of us want it to work, and we’re both willing to try.” He pulled Chris with him as he lay back against the pillows. “It actually feels wonderful to be able to tell you how I feel,”
"Knowing you? No… No surprise factor at all." Chris snickered, relaxed by the banter he’d missed.He kissed Darren back, resting his weight over him evenly. "I’m done running from this, Dare… I promise." The younger man assured, rubbing his friend’s arm. "I was foolish to think I could avoid what I was feeling… What I still feel." Chris pressed another kiss on Darren’s lips, a little longer than the last one. "And while we might not be the most sensible match to some people… Our collective weirdness works for me." He giggled a bit, nuzzling the side of Darren’s neck, before letting his lips caress against the man’s warm skin.
Naya cuddled up against him and closed her eyes for a while. She loved these moments, where they could just sit together in silence for a while, with no hectic and no responsibilities. “I’m always gonna be there for you, Chris. You’ll always be the baby in our little Glee family.”, she smiled and looked up to him, poking his nose. “I’m really proud of you. Look at all the things you achieved in the past and everything that’s still going to happen at some point. And you have Lily. You’re an amazing daddy and a wonderful friend…”, Naya sat back up again and took his hand. “I have a question. I know it’s not the most traditional thing to do, but…Would you wanna be my “Maid of Honor”?”, she chuckled and looked at him, biting her lower lip.
Chris’ cheeks flushed from all the praise, causing him to try to cover his face. “Oh shhhh… You’re doing that thing where you fluster me with compliments.” He chuckled, even as his eyes looked to Lily, a swell of pride hitting his chest. “Okay… The amazing daddy thing makes me feel like a million bucks. So, we can keep that one.” He mused, before looking at Naya questioningly. Chris sat with a bemused and flattered expression as he took in Naya’s request. He giggled, nodding almost immediately. “As long as I’m in a suit and not a dress, I’m totally in.” He told her, kissing her head. “Though, get enough tequila in me beforehand, and I could maybe brave a dress and heels, but only for you.” Putting the jokes aside, giving Naya a genuine smile, the man gathered her in a tight hug. “Nothing would make me happier than to share in your day, sweetie.”
