Title: Baby Talk
Rating: G
Pairing/s: Gwen/Arthur
Character/s: Gwen, Arthur, Leon
Summary: Leon hears Arthur talking to his newborn son.
Warnings: None
Word Count: 225
Prompt: 317: Tender
Author's Notes: In this AU, Arthur (obviously) survived Camlann and he and Gwen have just had their first child.

If it wasn’t absolutely necessary, Leon never would have entered the royal family’s chambers right now.  It almost felt like he was invading a private, tender moment as he approached them where they lay in bed.  The king was actually sitting on the bed; propped up on a few pillows with one of his arms holding his newborn son to his heart while the other held Gwen as she slept, drooling just a little bit on the pillow she called her husband’s chest.  The labor had been long and hard and Arthur had been singularly annoying through it all, bothering Gaius and Gwen to the point where she’d threatened him if he opened the door one more time to check on her.
Leon walked quietly toward them.  He worried at first that Arthur was asleep but then he realized the king’s lips were moving slightly as he talked to the infant.  Good, there was no chance Arthur would drop the little one when Leon spoke to him.  His boots scuffed a bit and he saw Arthur’s eyes open a smidge while he whispered to his son.  Leon grinned when he was finally close enough to hear him.  He whispered himself as he shook his head, “Do you really think Gwen will be happy that you’re lecturing your hours-old son on the proper fighting stance?”
