Are you excited to see Erin?” Sera spoke to her daughter while driving to the park.

Rinny!

Sera chuckled. She supposed she must be used to her daughter’s nicknaming of everyone by now. Well, not everyone. Mommy, Daddy, and a handful of others. Sabrina often got called Brin, which Sera supposed was similar to why Sabrina’s own siblings called her “Brina” a lot of the time. There was Keeber, of course. He was Lainey’s all-time favorite, it seemed. She liked Erin though, enough to learn her name. Enough to struggle through it and decide that “Rinny” was easier than Erin. So sure. There was another name that Seraphim wanted to teach her daughter but it was certainly not pressing. More so because she wanted Lainey to be less rude to all the strangers she met. She didn’t need to get into cars with them, but when Sera introduced them as friends, it would be nice if Lainey refrained from obvious glaring.

Seraphim parked the car at the park and let Lainey down onto the sidewalk before putting on all her various gear. Clunky little skates, knee pads over her red and white striped tights. She had little black bows on her pants, and a navy blue top with a red and white striped bow up at her collar. Her usual pigtails were combed down to fit her protective helmet. She had little protective gloves, and elbow pads. Sera might have bundled Lainey up less, but she was two. Goodness… She was two now. Well, as of the day before, it was official. Two years old.

Hold Mommy’s hand.” She had a bag of essentials on one arm, sunglasses up on her head above the rim of her cap, and Lainey’s hand attached to her other side. She locked the car and let Lainey skitter about awkwardly as they went to find Erin. Seraphim had jeans and a long sleeved top with her own hair in a pony-tail. They were meeting up for post-baby-birthday-friendliness, and for how Sera felt half the time… she was definitely going to be grateful for the visit.

Erin had been looking forward to meeting up with Sera and her adorable little daughter Lainey today. She always enjoyed catching up with her friend and it was always a bit of fun when Lainey was around too. How was it that she was two already? Honestly, she really had no idea where the time went sometimes. She was still also trying to get her head around the fact that in a few months time she would have been married for a year already. Not that she'd ever doubted that they wouldn't make it through a year of marriage, but when it seemed that relationships were breaking down all the time around her she supposed it was something to be proud of. It was definitely something to be proud of when she'd lost count of how many times her and Charlie had ended things and then decided they couldn't actually live without each other. Thank god those days were over and they'd finally settled down at last.

Knowing that Lainey had only had her birthday yesterday Erin walked down to the park with a small silver gift bag in her hand which had a card and a little present. She wasn't going to let her go empty handed for her birthday. Besides, Erin had always loved shopping for people's birthdays. And with a niece and a nephew she was getting much better at shopping for kids too.

She glanced around once she reached the park, being a nice enough day there were plenty of people about so she had to walk around a bit before she finally spotted the pair. Well, she couldn't help but notice Lainey first... on skates. How adorable! She flashed a smile as she headed over to them, "Oh my goodness, if that isn't the cutest sight ever" she grinned as she looked at Sera, she was sure the newly two year old was going to be getting some adoring looks from passers by. "Lainey! Wow... aren't you good at skating!" she exclaimed happily as she looked down at her, she was definitely impressed. Erin doubted she'd be able to skate now let alone when she'd been two!

Lainey did not make it easy on new people in her life. She was very particular about people, and she had to be worn down into liking someone. It was much easier for people who had been around when she was born, but any new addition had to face the trial period. It could be weeks, it could be months, all depending upon how often she saw someone and how they behaved toward her. At least when she liked someone, she was all in. She liked Erin.

While Sera knew Erin’s anniversary would be coming up, things in Sera’s life were quite different. She had been single again for almost a year. Things with Cooper were alright, but as a couple they were complicated. The situation that led to them having Lainey, and things after that, muddied the waters significantly, and so Sera was taking care of her daughter mostly on her own. There was a downside to not having someone at home, but she wasn’t going to think about it just now. Why bother? It wasn’t going to help her.

Lainey would fall pretty easily, but Sera was currently holding her up from the ground so even when she lost her balance she didn’t fall. “Rinny!” Lainey greeted when Erin came close enough. She fell forward and Sera kept her from the ground yet again and helped right her.

Hey Erin. Great to see you. Lainey is going to be a pro soon, right sweetie?

Vrroooom.” Lainey agreed dramatically, even though she wasn’t currently moving. Sera gave Erin a small hug, before Lainey latched onto Erin’s leg.

Erin definitely did not miss having a complicated relationship. Well, not that it had ever been complicated as such, but there had been a lot of issues there before eventually they'd been worked on. It really had been so easy to just give up on each other when times got tough and she was a bit embarrassed now looking back on things that she'd given up so easily. She'd certainly learnt a few lessons along the way, that was for sure. So she hoped Sera was coping okay, she didn't like to ask too many personal questions about the situation with Cooper because she knew these things could be hard to talk about. But she hoped Sera knew that she was always there to talk whenever she wanted.

"Rinny!" That was apparently Erin's new nickname and coming from a two year old it just sounded so adorable. She flashed Lainey another smile, bending down slightly, almost ready to catch her because it looked like she was about to fall. Luckily Sera was there to hold her up. "She'll definitely be a pro! Honestly, I'm impressed already... I'm sure she's doing much better than I would be" she laughed, Erin wasn't exactly about to volunteer to have a go. Lord knows, she'd be on the floor the moment she put the skates on considering how clumsy she could be. Erin smiled as Sera hugged her and then she looked down at Lainey again who was now attached to her leg, "Aw, it's so lovely to see you Lainey... I hope you had a nice birthday! How old are you now?" she asked, not sure if she was going to get an answer or if Lainey understood the concept of birthdays. Erin wasn't all that clued up when it came to child development. With a smile she handed the small gift bag to Sera, "This is for Lainey, it's just a little something" she said, inside was a birthday card, a little colouring book filled with pages of animals and a pack of crayons. Not just any crayons, they were glittery crayons. Erin hadn't been too sure what to get her so had settled on something that she was sure any two year old would enjoy. Not that she really knew what two year old girls were into these days, she probably should have asked Kieran when she'd seen him the other week, he would know.

It was the special people who got nicknames, and if Lainey liked them enough to try to learn their name, Sera found that they never minded what their name sounded like translated into Lainey-ese. Everyone had it in them to try hard, but knew how much easier it was to give up. How much closure you could get from just walking away. Sera knew it well. Lainey was dead set on giving up on things sometimes, but Sera knew that she had a lot of time to look forward. She could look back one day and wish she had done something different. She was a fickle little girl, and it was Seraphim’s job to keep her daughter on a track that she would be proud of down the road.

Seraphim chuckled at the idea that Lainey was doing better than Erin would. “Well one day she can skate circles around you, very literally.

How old was Lainey? Lainey held up her two hands wildly, Sera had to let go as her daughter was pulling her limbs free. “TWO!” She was clearly enthused. She couldn’t do the fingers but she knew she had two hands and that was easy. She did fall forward though, into Erin.

Sera received the bag and glanced inside. She could already tell that Lainey would like it. “Lainey, Erin has a present for you. Do you want to sit down in the grass and look at it?

Pwesents!” She danced around some now that she was righted. “Yes!” All the enthusiasm. It was probably good that Lainey had a new hobby, because for however exhausting it could be to teach her, it did wear Lainey out and that was great. “Take meeeee,” Lainey told Erin, as far as leading her to the grass, if that made sense. Sera chuckled.

If you want we can find a bench. Or some grass. Either way.

Seeing Sera and Lainey together was adorable, she bet they had such a lovely relationship together. It had to be hard work considering Sera was doing it all pretty much alone. Erin had seen how hard it was for Charlie's sister, Natasha. And she had two kids to raise alone. But she seemed to get by just fine, it probably helped now that she lived in town with enough family around that could always babysit. Erin actually didn't mind that, it could be fun, exhausting, but she got to hand them back at the end of the day. Parents had it so much harder.

Erin grinned at Sera, "Yes, she might be a world champion one day!" she laughed, maybe it was a good thing that Sera was starting her young, she'd have years of practice. Erin pretended to look shocked as Lainey announced how old she was now, "Two?! Oh my gosh, you're a big girl now" she smiled, probably not what Sera wanted to hear though, she knew how much parents never really wanted their little ones to grow up, at least not too quickly anyway. Erin put a hand on Lainey's shoulder as she bent down slightly, just to actually stop her from toppling over altogether, because that wouldn't be good.

She smiled again as Sera told Lainey that Erin had brought her a present, the little girl seemed somewhat enthusiastic about that, so that was a good start. Erin laughed slightly and reached for Lainey's little hand, she apparently wanted Erin to 'take her'. How cute. "Come on then, little Lainey" she smiled, glancing at Sera for a moment. "Ah, the grass is fine. It's dry anyway" she laughed, because the last thing she wanted was grass stains on her clothes. "Did you get up to much for her birthday?" she asked Sera, still holding Lainey's hand tightly as they found a nice patch of grass that would be suitable for sitting on.

Certainly there was something to be said about “playing with babies” as opposed to raising them. You could be a friend, aunt/uncle, grandparent… whatever it was, you were not obligated to them. You could rile them up and send them home. You could see those bright smiles and skip the tears at night. The screaming tantrums, and the social pressure to get them to turn out perfect. Competent, but not standoffish, pleasant but not needy, strong but not a bully, soft but not weak. Sera had a good relationship with her daughter, and she had no desire to hand her off, but being a mother and a human would be so much easier if she had more help. She did not think it was better for either her or Lainey, but she couldn’t exactly will a man into that position, and she didn’t want to be in an unhappy relationship to force the cog into place either.

Lainey might be a world champion one day. Sera laughed. “I guess its possible. We’d have to spend a bit more time out of town for that though.” She wouldn’t mind. If Lainey took too it enough, they could make the drive more frequently. A half hour to the rink? She could make it happen. She wondered how her parents had done it. She was thinking too hard about this. Erin had the right idea, enthusiastically reacting to Lainey’s new age.

Yes!” Lainey said, making an exaggerated face. She flailed her arms out, “So big!” She was proud of this, even if she couldn’t form a lot of full sentences. It was present time. Erin called Lainey “little Lainey” and Lainey was quick to correct her. “Big.” The slight was forgotten though. They all moved to the grass and Lainey was handed her gifts.

Erin asked about Lainey’s birthday. “Well, mostly we just went to the rink. I took her to lunch and then we went skating. It took most of her energy and she napped in the car on the way home. Then some dinner.Because who could ever ask Cooper to take his daughter’s birthday off. Too many criminals to stop.

Wings!” Lainey announced, holding up her card to show them, as if Erin had no idea what the card looked like.

That’s so pretty, Lainey. Do you think they’re fairies? Or princesses?

Pwincess Faiwy,” Lainey informed her. No decisions were to be made, it was everything. She was quite pleased.
