It’s been a whole year since the movie came out! Happy anniversary onceler fandom!
(Go easy on me! This is my first oncelerxreader story to do! I felt like once-ler and us blog needed some attention so I whipped this up. Also in honor for the first fics that I think we’re around in the beginning.)
You awoke feeling sore which was no surprise. After all, you were seven months along in your pregnancy. The cravings, morning sickness and swollen ankles were nothing new. You could hear your significant other softly snoring and decided to let him catch up on some sleep.
You heaved yourself up from the bed the best you could and finally waddle out of the room in the cottage. You opened one door which led to a room painted in pink with dolls scattered around. You saw your daughter, still sleeping too. Her eyes, which were identical to her daddy’s were closed and barely fluttered an eyelash.
Smiling, you went outside to get some fresh air. The valley was gorgeous on that fine, spring morning. The air was delicous of Truffula Trees and the only sounds were the breeze and soft running of the river. The grass was soft under your barefeet.
“Only two more months,” you whispered to your second baby. You and Once-ler were excited about the big day.
Once-ler especially with how he was knitting booties and building a new crib since your firstborn wasn’t out of hers yet. It reminded you of how Once-ler had been with your first pregnancy; running around, helping you prepare for your arrival. You had always loved that sweet side of him, that sweet thing of him.
It was hard to believe that years ago you had met in your sophomore year of high school and became friends after getting partnered in a class project for Home Economics. You only got closer and closer. Then Once-ler left to seek his fortune with a Thneed and you missed him terribley. Soon after he left, your family had news that they were moving and since you didn’t have any plans at the moment decided to go with the change. To your surprise it was the same town that Once-ler lived nearby.
What had happened then? You could say you both reunited and fell in love. He proposed to you (after asking your father of course!) and now you had been married for three years. Married with a two-year-old and new little one on the way.
As you thought these precious memories out, you felt familiar arms gently grip you around you. Your head felt the chest of your beloved behind you.
“Morning Pretty Lady,” said Once-ler against your ear.
“Good morning,” you chuckled. “Sleep well?”
“Very well,” he said. Once-ler turned you around so he could give you a good morning kiss.
You had to rise up a little on your toes to reach your husband, but every kiss was worth it when you did. Once-ler gently stroked your biggering tummy and bent down to kiss it as well. You smiled warmly at his affection.
“How’s she doing?” he asked looking up at you. Once-ler had been ecstatic finding out you were having another girl.
“I think she wants some breakfast soon,” you said.
“Mama,” came a little voice.
You both turned to see your little daughter toddle out with her blanket. She had her arms up in eagerness and Once-ler heaved her up in his arms. He gave a chuckle and kissed her head.
“I want pancakes Daddy,” your soon-to-be-oldest daughter squealed.
“Pancakes it is,” laughed Once-ler and draped her over his shoulder. “Let’s get breakfast going.”
You followed behind, placing your hands in front of you, with a smile. You looked at your little family which would grow again. If anything, you had more than you could ask for. Having two children, a lovely home, Once-ler and all the love you had in your life was better than what you dreamed of. It was the sweetest thing.
