[font "Open Sans" muse a is living in this NYC apartment complex, and the apartment across the hall from her has always been empty, until one day she finally sees someone moving in. she introduces herself to the guy moving in, muse b, and is immediately attracted to him. Before long, they end up going on a few dates, although muse b is hesitant at first, and at the end of the third date, muse a tries to invite muse b into her apartment for the night, but he declines. she’s confused and initially embarrassed until he tells her that she should come into his apartment because he has something to show her. They walk in and there’s a teenage girl on the couch. muse a is extremely confused now, especially when muse b introduces the girl as the babysitter. it isn’t until a tiny little two-year-old comes toddling around the corner that she realizes that muse b is a single father.]

Matthew smiled as Autumn volunteered to help plan his birthday party. [b "That would be great!"] he said. [b "I kind of lack with the planning skills, so I feel like his past birthday parties haven't been that great.... He doesn't remember though."] he said.

Dax trying to say Autumn's name was the one of the cutest things he'd ever done. He nodded when she said that she would have to go home and get ready. [b "I like you in my shirts."] he said as he leaned down and kissed her forehead.

He shook his head when she spoke next. [b "Firsts, you take as long as you need."] he said. [b "But second, don't you dare ever think that your body isn't perfect as is, Autumn. You're beautiful. Being a Dancer helps, I'm sure... But it's really all you."]

After breakfast, he got Dax in the shower, he loved taking them, it made him feel like a big boy. [b "Autumn is pretty cool."] Matthew told him. In which Dax preceded to smile and try to say her name again.

[+purple "Oh, I'd love to help plan his birthday if you'd like! Toy Story theme obviously!"] Autumn asked. She did love to plan parties, usually dance birthday's but this would be just as fun. She smiled as she listened to his full name. It seemed to fit the little boy perfectly.

Autumn loved that he couldn't completely get her name, but that was okay. He was just little anyway. She turned and smiled at Matthew when he mentioned the zoo. [+purple The zoo sounds amazing. I'm going to have to go home to get ready, considering I didn't even have pajama's to wear."] she laughed, motioning to Matthew's t-shirt she was wearing.

[+purple "But it shouldn't take me too long. I'll go after this amazing breakfast. You're gonna make me gain so much with food like this. I'm going to have to dance extra hard."] she laughed. As a dancer, she really felt pressure to stay thin, maybe it was part of the reason she ate so little most of the time, but most of the time she never realized. She just hoped that Matthew wouldn't worry about her, even though he probably would. He seemed to care so much for her, which she wasn't used to until now. She took another bite of the French toast, almost melting at how amazing it tasted.
Matthew turned to look at Autumn and just grinned. [b "Well. Yeah... but I like having you here when we first wake up.. I like seeing you as soon as I open my eyes."] he told her. His eyes were wide as he heard her comment about staying at her place. [b "Well. Let's see. Dax. How about we have a sleep over at Autumn's house tonight?"] he said with, with a chuckle.

[b "Yeah. Dax really likes breakfast food, so we do this just about every morning."] he said as he cut up another strawberry for his boy. [b "Dax will take apple juice, and Orange juice for me if you don't mind babe."] he said. He sat down next to Dax as Autumn came back to the table.

[b "He is two, his third birthday is actually next month. I guess I need to get to planning that."] he said. It made him a little sad, Dax already like to be as independent as possible, and it would only grow as he got older. [b "He is obviously obsessed with Toy Story. He has gotten to like that cartoon Marvel show on Disney though."] He smiled as Autumn made Dax laugh. [b "Dax Nathan Campbell."]

He couldn't help but laugh as Dax tried to pronounce Autumn's name. It was the cutest thing ever. [b "Well. It's a pretty day, why don't we go to the zoo?"] It really meant a lot to them, that Autumn had stayed and that she was willing to give her entire day up to spend it with them.
Autumn raised an eyebrow at him, leaning against the counter. [+purple "Oh, you think I'll be over here more? I only live over there."] she teased, before heading to the table with Dax and Matthew. [+purple "You're going to have to come to my place if you want to see me in something cuter than your t-shirt."] she whispered in his ear and winking at him once she was away from his ear.

Autumn sat down, the plate in front of her looked amazing. [+purple "Matthew, this is normal for you?! I usually have a coffee and [i maybe] an apple if I'm lucky. You know I don't cook...like ever."] she smiled, standing up to grab some cups for drinks. [+purple "What can I get you and Dax to drink? I'm going to make a coffee if you don't mind."] she smiled. She poured some coffee into her mug, adding some cream and sugar into her mug, taking a sip afterward. [+purple "It's like the coffee is better over here, it's crazy."] she smiled, popping a strawberry into her mouth.

[+purple "So, can you tell me more about this little guy? I know he loves toy story, but I don't know much else. Like how old he is, his full name, all the favorites. I want to be able to spoil him now."] Autumn smiled, making silly faces at Dax as he clapped and laughed. [+purple "Oh, and did we decide if we were doing the zoo and/or the aquarium today? Would wanna see the animals, Dax?"] she asked, making sure to get on his level. [+green "Aminals, da-da?"] Dax smiled. Dax then pointed at Autumn, [+green "Da-da, Dax, -"] Dax said, pointing to Matthew, then himself, and the to Autumn. Like he didn't know what her name was. [+purple "Autumn."] she smiled at him. The small boy looked confused and then smiled. [+green "AU-TuUMM."] he said. Autumn laughed, [+purple "Perfect."].
[b "Of course I want to see you dance!"] he told her. [b "Oh, well. Dax will just love that. He's kind of a flirt, incase you haven't noticed. I really don't know where he got it from."] he said as he leaned over to kiss her cheek, which only caused a squeal from Dax. [+green "Da-da. No!"]

He couldn't help but laugh as he heard Autumn say she was going to judeh him so hard. [b "Well. I'll definietly have to up my game then."] He headed into the kitchen with a warm heart. He knew that Dax would love Autumn, as he was such a social butterfly. He just hadn't realized what Dax was missing out on until seeing him this morning with his girl.

It didn't take him long; he fixed Dax's favorite breakfast meal, which was pretty simple anyway. [b" Come and eat!"] he called as he had finished the last plate. He looked down when he felt little arms and legs around him. [b "Hi my dude!"] he said as he bent down to pick his toddler up. He turned around to see Autumn and grinned. [b "Give it a few morning's of you being here when he gets up, you'll quickly become the favorite."]

As he strapped Dax in his high chair, he leaned over to get a quick peck from his girl. [b "Dax's favorite. Oatmeal French Toast, and fresh fruit. With Apple Juice, Orange Juice or Coffee, whatever you prefer."]

[+purple "You want to come to watch me rehearse? Y-yeah! You can, there like an observatory room, might be filled with little girls in tutus, but you are welcome to watch. I also find out tomorrow what role I got in our upcoming ballet, so that's exciting as well."] Autumn smiled. She was surprised he was so excited to see her dance, she could tell how much he cared about her and her passions. She also couldn't help but smile as the small boy crawl over to his dad, watching him attack the small boy with kisses, Dax giggling in the process.

Autumn smiled brightly when the small boy cuddled into her side, a small laugh when Matthew teased them. [+purple "Guess I got myself two boyfriends in one day. Lucky me."] she smiled. [+purple "Oh, I am so excited about your cooking. I'm going to judge you so hard."] she teased as the small boy bounced on the bed as the movie he loved came on.

Autumn had pulled the boy onto her lap as they watched the movie, saying every character as they entered the screen. [+green "Woody! Buzz! Wex!"] Dax said, making sure Autumn was watching, looking over at her every few seconds. [+purple "Yeah, Woody, Buzz, and Rex."] Autumn nodded, allowing him to enjoy a new person in his life. As she heard Matthew say he was ready, the girl paused the movie, to Dax's dismay. [+green "To-Story?"] he asked. [+purple "I know buddy. But we need to eat first. We can finish after."] she spoke, picking him up and placing him on the floor toddling into the kitchen. [+green Da-da!"] Dax smiled, running over to Matthew, hugging around his leg. Autumn smirked, [+purple "He's more attached to you than I am."] she teased, pressing a kiss to his lips. [+purple "Smells good, what did you make?"] she asked, pulling her hair into a ponytail to get it out of her face.
Matthew laughed when she qustioned him about being his girlfriend. [b "Well... After what we did last night, I sure as hell hope you are."] he told her. [b "Can you have people come and watch you at Rehearsal? I've never seen you dance.. Dax and I can come watch you and then He and I can take you to dinner afterwards."]

Dax loved being outside. He loved all animals, when she mentioned the zoo or the aquarium, Matthew quickly agreed. [b "Dax would like either one of those."] he told her. [b "How about we go out tonight? Spend tomorrow in bed watching movies and then we go out after your rehearsal? I'll put Dax down for a late nap so he won't be a hellion."]

He laughed as he heard the little footsteps of Dax running into his bedroom. [b "There goes the privacy."] he said with a grin as he faked being asleep. He couldn't help but smile as he heard Dax's excited gasp when he seen that Autumn was still here. [b "Da-Da is up."] he said as he felt Dax crawl on him. [b "Did my little dude have a good sleep?"] he asked as he pressed kissed all over the little boy's face.

As Autumn laid down, he watched as Dax quickly scooted over and cuddled into her, separating them. [b "Wow. He's not even here five minutes and he's already stealing my girl."] His heart was full in this very moment. [b "How about you see if Autumn want's to watch Toy Story with you and I'll go cook breakfast?"] he asked as he turned the TV on.

[+green "Watch to-story"] Dax asked with a giggle. [+green "To-Story!"] he squealed as it came on the TV.
Autumn smiled as she was pulled into his arms. [+purple I would want nothing more."] she smiled as she leaned up a kiss his jawline. She listened as he spoke, and smiled when he called her his girlfriend. [+purple "Oh, am I your girlfriend now?"] she teased, as he had never officially asked her to be his girlfriend, but she knew they were basically at that point. [+purple "Well, I'm off today but I do have rehearsal tomorrow but it's at 6 pm, so I'll have the morning open. Maybe we could go out for lunch and bring Dax to the zoo or aquarium. Or we could always curl up and watch movies all day, we could go to the park too if need be."] Autumn smiled. Autumn grew up with siblings much younger than her, so she knew what younger children enjoyed to do.

As Autumn was enjoying the warmth of being cuddled up with Matthew, it all ended as she heard the pitter-patter of tiny feet into his room, trying to get on Matthew's bed, yet Dax couldn't quite reach. As Autumn looked over to see the boy, he gasped happily as the girl he met last night was still here. Dax look at her with grabby hands, [+green "Up?"]. Autumn smiled as she reached down, helping him up onto the bed. [+green "Da-da up?"] he asked, teetering over to Matthew, and smiled when he saw Matthew's eyes open as well.

Autumn loved watching Dax and Matthew interact, as watching a grown man with a little kid was super attractive in general. [+purple "Never thought I'd be able to date a hot dad with the cutest kid in the world."] she smiled as she laid back down next to the two boys.
That night had been everything that he never imagined possible. He and Autumn had connected on so many different levels. She had met the most important person in his life, and didn't really seemed face by it.

He groaned as he felt the bed shift when Autumn got her. He opened an eye and grinned as she pulled on one of his shirts. It basically went to her knee's, but she looked damn good in it.

He heard her in his bathroom and then the kitchen. Finally she came back to bed, though, he had rolled over and was in and out of the sleep realm. Usually Dax was already up and running around, but he had stayed up later than normal last night; which he was thankful for. It would give him some time alone with Autumn this morning. [b "Good morning."] he mumbled as he felt her lips on his cheek. He rolled over to lay on his back and pulled her into his arms. [b "Can we just stay in bed today?"] he said as he placed a kiss against her forehead.

[b "I don't have to go to work until Monday. What are your plans for today? For the weekend?"] he asked. [b "I was thinking I would get up and cook us all breakfast here soon... and then I don't know. What do normal people do with their son and girlfriends on the weekends?"]
Autumn smiled, curling up in his lap with him. She felt happy, content for the first time in a long time. She turned, kissing him back and allowing herself to lose herself in the kiss. She let her hand tangled in his hair as they kissed, and she was a bit surprised when he picked her up and bought her into his room. She was now on his bed, and she knew this is what she wanted. She hadn't been intimate with anyone in a while, so she knew they would both be a bit rusty. She wanted to know all of him, so she allowed herself to get lost with him. She felt his lips along her neck, a slight moan escaping her lips. She pulled her shirt off over her head, throwing it over to the side of his room as she found his lips once again. [+purple "Well, prove it then."] she teased. The rest of the night was bliss.

[center ✧・゚: *✧・゚:*:・゚✧*:・゚✧]

Autumn rolled over in the morning, yawning a bit as realized where she was. She had a bit of a headache as she had drunk quite a bit of wine last night. She turned over, smiling as she found Matthew's face. It was quite early, as Autumn normally woke up early, usually, she would work out early in the morning before dance class, but she had the day off today, which was perfect for today. She slid out of bed, not wanting to disturb Matthew as he normally woke up early to attend to Dax.

Autumn found a shirt of Matthew's and pulled it over her head. Due to her height and size compared it him, it was basically a dress on her. She went into the bathroom, cleaning up the makeup that had smeared from the night before and from sleeping, making sure she didn't look like a clown. She then went to the kitchen, grabbing a glass of water. She drank it, smiling as she looked around. She couldn't believe her night. She and Matthew connected on a few different levels last night, and it was such a special night. She placed the glass in the sink before crawling back into bed with him. She pressed a kiss to his cheek, [+purple "Good Morning Handsome"] she smiled.
Matthew sighed as he felt arms go around his waist. He kissed for forehead and just stood there, holding his girl for a few moments. [b "I should've told you. I was just afraid."] he mumbled.

[b "I would love it if you stayed."] he said. Dax would have a field day when he woke up in the morning and realized she was still there. [b "I don't know if you noticed, but my dude is quite the social butterfly. Especially when it comes to pretty girls."] he smiled softly as he led her over to the couch and pulled her into his lap. [b "I want you."] he said. [b "I don't want anyone esle.. Besides, now you have two biggest fans. I can't wait to watch you dance."]

He understood where she was coming from. It was a lot. He was a Father. He was a little older. It could be stressful. But he had never wanted anyone more. [b "You're not dragging me down, Autumn. You're giving us another life."] He cupped her face with his hand and pressed his lips to hers. He pulled her close, as if she could get any closer, but he grinned against her lips and stood up, her in his arms.

[b "I don't want anyone else."] he mumbled as he laid her down on his bed. This was the next step for them. He hadn't been with anyone since Sophia; he was slightly nervous. [b "I.. I can't tell you how much I care about you, because I don't understand it myself."] he mumbled as he left soft kisses along her neck.
Autumn listened and knew he would have a good reason. And he did. She listened to everything he said, and she could see why he did it. Dax was important to him, as he should be, and just introducing a young boy to someone you just met isn't safe. She did appreciate the fact that he knew he had to keep the young child safe, but he still could have told her about him. Told her he was a dad, she wouldn't have asked to meet him until she knew she wanted to be with him. But, as she found out, Matthew didn't date much, so he was probably just trying to play the situation by year. When he finished, Autumn didn't leave. She walked up to him and wrapped her arms around him. [+purple "I understand, I just wish you told me about him. Ya know? He is absolutely amazing, such a cutie, and such a fun kid. Well, he had pretty good genes passed down from you."] she smiled, just letting herself melt into him.

[+purple "I'd like to stay if that's okay."] Autumn smiled. She pulled away, but then took his hand in hers. Autumn felt so young now compared to him. He was a father and she felt so young, just out of college trying to be a professional dancer. She wanted to be what he wanted and almost felt like he might realize he is missing out on something by spending his time with her. [+purple "Are you sure I am what you want? I'm so young, scraping by to try and be a professional dancer while you are a father, working at an exclusive restaurant and doing so well for yourself. I don't want to be dragging you down. "] she said, sighing. She hoped he could ease her insecurities, but if he chose differently, she would understand.
Matthew listened as Autumn let it all out. [+blue "I know. I know, Autumn. I should've told you everything from the very beginning. I'm sorry I didn't. Just... you have to let me explain."] he said as he took her hand and led her into the living room. [b "Dax is literally my everything. If it wasn't for that kid, I don't know where I would be today..."] he told her.

[b "Dax's Mother, Sophia.. She, she was the most important thing in my entire life, three years ago. We found out that she was pregnant, it was very unexpected. I was just starting my job as head chef... She was a party girl. She loved it all, the lights, drinking, everything. She left when he was two months okay. Ran off to Los Angeles, with some producer."] he told her. [b "I promised from then on that I would do everything I could to protect my boy. I know you think it was awful of me to keep this from you... But I couldn't let anyone into his life without knowing that they were going to stay..."] he said. [b "You can go.. If you want. I know this is a lot.. But I would really like it if you stayed."]
Autumn sat whole Dax ate his snack and he showed her all of his toys, handing them to her one at a time before she was basically covered in toys. She didn't answer Matthew's question, she would talk to him about this once Dax was in bed. She was upset; he could have been completely upfront with her from the beginning, this is something big in his life. She had shared a lot of her life with her, and he was always holding back. Of course, he probably had a reason, but that didn't mean she wasn't hurt by it. [+purple Goodnight bud."] she smiled, as Matt closed the door to the boy's room. Autumn backed away from the door and sighed deeply.

Part of her wanted to run. Run out of his apartment and take a minute. The fact that he had a son wasn't a dealbreaker for her at all, she was just shocked this was the way he chose to bring it up to her. But it left her a lot of unanswered questions. Was he previously married? Was the mother involved? Was he STILL married and had her on the side? She crossed her arms over her chest, turning toward Matthew. [+purple "Really? Matthew, I asked, hell I [i begged] for you to share your life with me. I wanted to know all of you and on a personal level. I like you, romantically, but I also just enjoyed you as a person. Why would you hide something so big from me?"] she asked, keeping her voice down not to wake the sleeping boy. [+purple "I thought you just didn't like me that much, and that's why you never came over..."] she spoke softly, kicking at the ground, avoiding eye contact.
