A/N: Yes, another Clare/Adam fic- deal with it :) This should be about 3-5 chapters long.
Disclaimer: If I owned Degrassi, Cladam would have SO become canon in Smash Into You pt 2. ;)
Background info: Clare and Adam are about 25 years of age and are happily married. The misfits never split up, so Eli will be part of this too.
You can thank The Cliffhanger Girl for this because without her, this wouldn't exist
Adam* (Adam Jr.)
Clare sat in bed one night, her notebook in hand, jotting down baby names she could possibly give to her and Adam's children someday. That is...if they had children together. She wasn't sure at this point if Adam even wanted little brats running around the house right now- or ever. They'd never exactly talked about it. It was obvious to Clare she'd never be able to give birth to a child with DNA from both her and Adam.
However, she had come to accept that fact. At this point, she just longed to experience raising a child with Adam; having a kid they could together support, sing to and tuck in at night, and chase around the playground. But the remaining question stood firmly: Did Adam want this, also?
Suddenly, she heard footsteps coming toward the bedroom door. Knowing Adam was on the other side about to walk in, she hurriedly leaned off the side of the bed, hiding away her notebook and a few loose baby articles she'd printed out underneath. As she sat back up, her eyes met with Adam's who had just walked in, his wet hair along with his pajamas consisting of a black tee and boxers clinging to his damp skin. "Hey"
"Did you have a nice shower?" she inquired while casually opening up a book as if she'd been reading the whole time in his absence.
"Yeah, a steaming hot one at that; perfect to unwind from a long day" he said, getting into bed beside her.
"I bet it would have been even hotter if I was in there with you" she flirted slyly. This caused him to blush furiously which she thought was utterly adorable.
"Well, you know you could have just asked" he said playfully before leaning in to kiss her lips.
Clare smiled as they pulled away. "So, long day at work?"
Adam sighed, nodding his head with an eye roll. "Jeff, my manager, had me watch his little demons he calls 'kids' during my lunch break"
Clare was taken aback by his analogy toward the children. "...oh, what happened?"
"Well, since they weren't allowed in the faculty lounge, I had to keep them in my office and attempt at eating my lunch there. The little brats started climbing all over my desk, going through my file cabinets. And once they realized there wasn't anything entertaining in there, they started throwing around papers, disorganizing my files"
Clare stayed silent as she listened to Adam rant about his horrible encounter with the children. He continued, "And when I told them to stop and take a chill pill, the girl- Lizzie; she just started screaming at the top of her lungs"
"Oh my gosh... T-that's horrible, Adam..."
"Yeah" he released an exhausted breath. "But, it's all over now. It's just you and me; no little monsters running around, ramped"
Clare forced a small smile and gave a short dry laugh. "Yeah...that'd be the worst"
Adam nodded, putting an arm around her. He noticed something strange in his wife's demeanor. "Hey, you okay? You look a little pale"
"Paler than usual?" she joked nervously.
He rolled his eyes at the comment.
"Yes, I'm fine!" she assured him with another forced smile that she prayed he couldn't see past.
He smiled back at her. "Okay, good... But if there's ever anything on your mind, you know you can tell me, right?"
"Y-yeah, of course. I know"
"Okay, just making sure" he eyed her a bit suspiciously, but soon shrugged it off before leaning in to kiss her once more. "Let's get to bed, hun"
Clare smiled sweetly at him and nodded before helping him pull the sheets up from the end of the bed over them. Once they'd both been completely covered with the soft material, they both fell back; they're heads hitting the same pillow side-by-side and took one another in their own arms.
Adam soon dozed off after clicking off the lamp on the bedside table. Clare, however, couldn't help but lay awake in his arms, trying to hold back tears that insisted on trickling down anyhow. She wanted so desperately to become a mother with Adam as a father to their own child. However, it seemed as though she'd never be getting her wish.

"He called them 'demons'?" Eli asked me in an amused tone as we sat in the Dot, him practically choking on his food.
"Yes!" I gave him an exasperated eye roll. "Just how in the world am I supposed to tell him I want to have kids now? He'll probably laugh in my face!"
"You know Adam wouldn't do that" Eli disagreed.
"He would if he thinks I'm joking; which he probably will think!"
"Then let him know you're dead serious" he advised.
Eli sighed. I know he was getting annoyed at this point. He just didn't understand my view on these things.
"Clare, must I remind you of just whom you're married to? He's Adam Torres- the most laid-back, understanding guy around. You've been complaining to me for weeks about how much you want kids, when in reality, Adam's the guys who should be hearing your whining- I mean complaints" he joked causing me to crack a smile.
He continued, "Just tell him you want kids. If he does too, then great! If he doesn't... Well, I know you two will be able to work it out"
"And if we don't...?"
"Well, then the apocalypse happens and we all die" he said sarcastically causing me to roll my eyes once again. However, I had to admit, his way of putting things did calm my nerves a bit.
I sighed after taking a sip of my Coke. "Okay" I decided, "I'll tell Adam I want kids"
"When?" Eli inquired.
"Soon" I assured him.
"Like, today?" he pressured.
"Maybe... Maybe not"
He eyed me pointedly.
"What?" I asked defensively.
He just continued with his accusatory stare. I guess he knows me well enough to assume I'd procrastinate with this kind of thing.
"Soon" I assured him once more.
A/N: Well, sorry if this sucked in any way... However, it is only the first chapter so it should get better :3 5 reviews tells me this is worth updating! Love you all, Moxxy :')
