Noin had just gotten word from the Doctors about a mission that she needed to leave for so she decided to find Solo. She had check his room to find it empty so she went looking. She soon heard his voice and couldn't quite make out what he was saying.
As she entered the room she spot him playing with Gracia and smiled before turning serious. She cleared her throat to get his attention before speaking, "I have been given a mission Solo. I am going to be leaving in 15 minutes. I just thought I should fin dyou before I go and say good bye."
Solo turned, hearing her and nodded. "I was just about to pack up myself. I have to go with. Leaving Gracica with Duo and Aiden. Just waiting for him to show up...." He placed her back in her carrier and buckled her in, kissing her forehead. She looked about confused and then at Noin blinking.
"She knows her new Mommy...." He smiled at her and then at Noin.
"Oh..." Noin looked down at Gracia now being able to look into Solo's eyes. She was glad he wasn't mad at her but she was still mad at herself for giving out the information.
He sighed and walked over to her, wrapping his arms around her. "I'm sorry....for this morning....I shouldn't have acted the way I did...." He kissed her head and held her.
He'd been an ass. He just hoped she would forgive him.
Noin slowly wrapped her arms around Solo returning the hug, "You have nothing to be sorry about. She is your daughter and I shouldn't of told them."
"She'll be safer with me. I'm going to take care of her and protect her. I would rather die then see her hurt. I want to be a good father....but I don't want to do it alone...." He pulled back a bit and smiled at her. "She'll need a mother...." He kissed her hand and leaned his forehead to hers.
"When this war is over....I want that mother to be you..." He smiled softly, waiting for her response.
Noin was shocked. She stepped away from Solo and looked down at Gracia not to sure what to say, "I...."
Duo Maxwell decided at the moment to open the door nice and cleaned once more and his head all stitched up, "Uncle is here! Now here is my little Angel?" Duo grinned seeing Gracia and went over and picked his little niece up, "Well hello there beautiful! How are you?"
She flashed a large toothless smile at him, hands feeling at his face. She giggled loudly.
Solo sighed deeply and stepped away from Noin, heading over to Duo. "Make sure she doesn't stay out to late and no hanging out with boys. No drinking without supervision...got it?" He smirked and patted Duo on the back grabbing his trench coat off the couch, putting his sunglasses on.
Duo scrunched his nose at Solo's words and looked down at Gracia, "He is no fun isn't he. Now how are we going to get into trouble?" Duo grinned and looked back at Solo and Noin, "You two save safe and come back, alright?"
Noin smiled a little and nodded at the younger brother.
"You worry about the little one, we'll worry about each other..." He smiled, pushing the sunglasses up his nose and leaned in kisses Gracia.
"I'll be back peanut...Daddy loves you..." She frowned at him, almost put out by him leaving. He smirk. "I'm sorry love....but you can't get everything you want and I need to go to work...." He placed a hand on Duo's shoulder. "Take care of her...." Nodding, he made his way to the door, opening it for Noin.
"i wont let anyone hurt this Angel," Duo moved Gracia in his arms so he could take one of her hands and wave by to Solo.
Noin smiled at the scene before exiting the room with Solo following her, "Are you going to be alright away from her?'
He smiled his classic Solo grin. "Of course. I trust Duo with her. She'll be fine; I've got nothing to worry about except this mission..." He opened another door for her and they traveled on in silence before he finally,
"...You never answered me....before Duo walked in..."
Noin hestitated as they continue to walk, "I really don't know what to say." Noin smiled a little, "I would love to be her mother but I don't even know if I will make it out of this war alive or sane."
He stopped before opening the door leading to the jeep. "If someone is going to make it out of this war alive...I'll make sure it's you..." He leaned in and kissed her.
"You don't need to answer now...give it time. Think before you rush into anything...all right? Just know that offer will always stand..." He pushed the door open and headed out.
