Birthday Surprise || Quick
Puck had been planning for weeks, since before he and Lucy shared their feelings and admitted that they loved each other. That didn’t change his plans, just made him add on to it. He looked over his shoulder with a soft smile. The car seat strapped in to the back seat of his Jeep was filled with the most precious cargo he’d ever had in it, and he grinned at the little girl. She grinned back, a wide happy smile and Puck’s heart skipped in his chest. This was going to be a good day, or at least he hoped so.
It had taken over an hour for him to convince Shelby that they’d take good care of Beth for the few hours it would take the woman to run errands and see a movie, but he’d done it and this was shaping up to be a very awesome day.
He pulled into the parking area for the small park, a dorky smile on his face because he could see their swings in the near distance. This would be Beth’s first time at the swings, but he couldn’t think of a better time to do it. Puck couldn’t stop smiling as he parked, hopped out of the Jeep and grabbed Beth’s bag before pulling her carrier out. He nearly forgot the small basket he’d talked his mom into making a picnic for them with, but he grabbed it at the last second and went to the small, rickety wooden picnic table near their swings to sit and wait.
Puck sang softly to Beth, keeping her smiling and giggling.
