My Only Wish This Year
4:17….that's the time on the clock that Brooke Baker saw as she rolled over and sleepily got out of bed, awoken by her two day old infant's screams. Looking at her husband of little over a year, he was not even making a movement to try and go soothe their son back to sleep caused her to groan more. She was the last one to get up with him, some measly three hours ago. She quickly yet carefully made her way into the nursery, not wanting to wake Julian with Dylan's screams.
"Hey there buddy, what's the matter?" She said, picking up her son and trying to swiftly rock her son back to sleep, her own lack of sleep getting the better of the fairly new mother. "Let's see, I just changed you last time and your diaper isn't dirty now. Are you hungry?" Brooke wondered, and went downstairs to prepare a bottle for her now quiet son. She tried feeding him and he took the bottle welcomingly, but that unfortunately did not put him back into a peaceful slumber. She tried just swaying with him back and forth, which seemed to work last time, but that did not work. It was now approaching five am and she was becoming desperate.
"Come on Dyl, I know your tired and I'm extremely tired, why don't you just close those pretty little eyes of yours and sleep a little bit huh?" Brooke pleaded with her son, but that too did not work. She was running out of ideas, she only had two more left. The first being sitting down in the rocking chair and rocking him back to sleep, something that has not worked for the Baker family yet. The other being putting him in the car and driving around, something that Haley said used to work for Jamie. Desperate, Brooke sat down in the rocking chair, slowly rocking the two of them. After a while, both Dylan and his mother were almost both asleep, that was until Brooke felt a pair of hands running down the side of her.
"Hey you, he's still up?" Julian asked, now coming in front of Brooke.
"Nah, he's just dozing off now."
"Good, I was wondering where you were." Julian said, remembering that he rolled over in bed, hoping to drape his arm around his wife and pull her close, but as he placed his arm across the bed, he found out that she wasn't there. He got up and checked their bathroom, and the nursery and they both weren't no where to be found. He went downstairs and that led him to the scene he just stumbled upon.
"I'm here, been here since a little after four, since someone did not hear him wail." Broke said, teasingly of course, and yawning at the same time.
"I'm sorry babe, I must have just been deeply dreaming about the two of you." Julian said with that devilish smirk of his that Brooke should be illegal because it always got him what he wanted with her. "But more importantly, how are you? Still sore?"
"A little here and there when I get up and move, but it was all worth it, you know?"
"Mhm, I wouldn't trade the two of you in for anything. You guys are my source of enjoy and happiness." Julian sweetly said which was followed by a gentle kiss between the two of them, both of them not wanting to wake the sleeping infant between them.
"Babe, you need to stop doing that 'cause that causes me to want to go further, but you know I can't." Brooke said, in some what of a disappointed tone.
"Fine, then how about this?" Julian said, after turning around and grabbing one of the many presents underneath the Christmas tree and then opening said present to reveal a gorgeous necklace with a silver heart on it, within the heart the first picture taken of the new father and son.
"Oh my God, I didn't even realize what day it was. I've just been so preoccupied with him," Brooke said, motioning to the infant in her arms. "I'm so sorry, I couldn't get you anything. But I promise I will."
"Shussh." Julian said, putting his finger up to Brooke's lips. "It's ok; Haley and Peyton helped me pick it out considering I was with you for the past couple of days, never leaving your side at the hospital. And besides I don't want anything, you've already given me the best gift of all and it's sleeping in your arms. There's nothing more I could possibly ask for."
"Julian, you're gonna make me cry."
"Here's something to make you stop, just say you love me. That always puts a smile on your face."
"Ok then… I love you so much Julian Baker. You are the best husband in the world." Broke said, smiling of course.
"And I love you too Brooke Davis Baker, and you too Dylan Max Baker." Julian said, placing kisses on both Dylan and Brooke's forehead. But once he finished with Brooke, she pulled him down and requested to be placed on her lips. She couldn't be any more happier now that her little family is complete.
AN: Alright guys, I know that I normally write Brucas, but I was inspired last night to write this, don't ask me why. And I know that in the show, Brooke can't have kids, but I think that that is total bull. She deserves to be a mom and have everything she wanted, which is why I disregarded that notion completely. Hope everyone likes it and happy holidays to all.
