"Hey, Fai!" Grinning brightly, Naruto knocked his knuckles against the woman's door, bubbly enthusiasm practically rolling off him as he rocked his weight back and forth on his heels. "Fai, you in there??"
"Hai!! One second!" Juggling laundry and a kitten that decided to perch herself on her shoulder, she decided to abandon getting all the way to the bedroom and just dumped it in the baby’s room. "Maaaa…Kitai you spoiled princess." Fussing at her precious fluff ball before properly taking her into her arms.
When she finally got to the door she was out of breath. “EH- Naruto!!” But not enough to greet her little prince with matching enthusiasm. “Hey!! I haven’t seen you in a while, come in come in! How are you sweetheart?”
Eagerly nodding his head, Naruto moved to follow Fai. He hadn’t seen the nursery since it had been fixed up, and though this technically wasn’t his family, it was exciting to know that it would soon be even larger.
A small laugh left his lips at the question, and he reached a hand out to brush over the worn, velvet ears of the rabbit. It had almost lost an eye at some stage, but the kind lady downstairs, (the one that had let him play with her cat Chichi) had patched it up for him after he’d dragged the poor thing home through the dust.
"I never knew toys were s’pposed to have names." He admitted, lips curling upwards a little more at his own childish naivety. "I just called him my Rabbit."
"When I was little I had a stuffed Dinosaur, since she was pink I named her Dina….declared her a princess dinosaur." Fai chuckled at her own silly antics when she was little. "Well for now his name is Rabbit, we’ll see what the baby comes up with yes?" Ruffling her blond’s hair, before taking the final steps into the nursery.
A trunk, a bookshelf, and the crib all cleaned and polished. “My painting isn’t finished yet…I get tired so easy these days that I can only work on it a few hours at a time.” Her biggest pride of the nursery was the scene spanning one entire wall. Naruto wouldn’t know about the sanctuary, but it was a painting of that exact spot at night, a star filled scene. “Yamato made all the furniture, and I decided to keep it it’s natural wood color. We don’t know what the sex of the baby is so the rest of the painting…is up for grabs…” Scratching the back of her head while her other hand rub her tummy, only starting to round “When we do find out would you like to help me paint the rest of the room?” Turning to her younger companion before setting Rabbit atop the bookshelf.
Naruto had never been in a nursery before, but as he stepped into the room, if felt just how he expected. It was cosy, comforting, and weirdly peaceful in a way he guessed one would associate with a sleeping baby. Eyes travelled around the room, taking in all the details as he grinned and ran a hand along the wooden trunk. Yamato-taichou certainly was handy at times, and it was pretty fitting that he would create the furniture that would be used to maintain their baby.
"Of course! So you don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet?" He asked, turning his attention back to Fai, and letting his eyes fall onto her stomach. He didn’t really like staring at the now visible bump beneath her clothes, but it was sort of hard to keep his fascination at bay.
