Guy sat down on the ground, spawning some new animals to go along with the elephant. He gives her a smile, and makes the elephant give her a smooch with it’s trunk. “You okay?”

She giggled as the elephant kissed her with his trunk, reaching forward to pet it. Her other hand moved to pet the baby tiger that climbed into her lap. She sniffed, but smiled up at him, officially on her way to being cheered up. “Mhm. I betters now.”

He shouldered the book bag and walked the babysitter to the door, bidding her goodbye with a smile. With a little kick against the solid frame, the door swung closed, and he locked it before bringing his attention back to the little girl in his arms.

“She’s gone.” He whispered deviously, then leaned in suddenly to rub his face against Lian’s. “Alright! No dad and no babysitter- what’s say you and me break out the cookies too while we watch this movie?” As he spoke, he made his way into the kitchen, rocking the little girl in his arms. “Did he move the hiding spot for the cookie box again?”

The toddler gave a large grin, automatically leaning up to nuzzle her face against her uncle’s. “Yah!” She laughed, eyes brightening at the mention of two of her favorite activities, which, with her uncle, were all activities. She was all smiles as she was carried into the kitchen, being soothed by the rocking motion.

Her face crinkled in thought as she tried to remember where Daddy had last hidden the cookies. “Ummm..” She raised her finger to her mouth, “Daddy hadta hide ‘em when un’le ‘Ally came over, cuz Gramma ‘ade them an’ Daddy didn’t want un’le ‘Ally to eat ‘em.” She tried to help.

"You bet I do.” He gave his daughter a bright smile as he knelt down onto the ground, spreading his arms out to welcome her closer. “You have to give me a hug first though.”

There were times like these when Lian said something so simple, so loving and innocent that Roy felt his entire world brighten up. “You are." She was the sun in his life— his warmth and happiness. There wasn’t a single doubt about that. Roy tickled at her neck before pulling his hand back with a smile.

"Come on. Let’s go plant them."

It often confused her why Daddy would get that big grin on his face, but Lian just decided it didn’t matter. After all, smiling like that meant he was happy. Erupting in giggles at the expert ticklish touch,  she squirmed away, but still shot a toothy grin at him.

"Yay!" She squeaked, running to the window with the seed packet in hand; she knew well enough that Daddy had to carry the flowerpot.

"Hey, Lian- will you do your Uncle Dick a favor? Something just between you and me."

Lian looked up from her coloring book, and grinned up at him. “Yah! I ‘elp! Daddy says I’m a good ‘elper!”

He tapped his chin and shook his head. He’d make sure that the little girl got no such thing. This battle was between Roy and him- and well, Roy would see him coming if he snuck inside in the middle of the night, so he needed Lian’s help.

"No time outs." He poked her nose. "And this’ll be so much fun.”

She giggled, going cross-eyed as he poked her nose. “Mkay!” She laughed, reaching up and wrapping her arms around his neck. “What I do?”

Lian looked up from her coloring book, and grinned up at him. “Yah! I ‘elp! Daddy says I’m a good ‘elper!”

Dick mirrored the grin and ruffled her hair. “Atta girl. Now, it’s a super secret mission against…” He looked around before leaning in to whisper ‘your father,’ and then leaned back. “Still up for the challenge, Li?”

She gasped dramatically, and thought for a minute before looking up at him. “…Will I gets a wime out?” She hated those. It was so boring. She couldn’t even color when she was in time out. Granted, Daddy was more fun giving time outs then Gramma. With Daddy, she got a treat afterward.

"Well then, she’s a very smart lady." He nodded his head as he reached out to tuck some of her hair behind her ears, flower pot still in his big gentle hands. "Did she tell you how to take care of a plant?"

She grinned up at the gesture, and nodded again. “Yah! She ‘aid we haveta give et lots of sunshine an’ water. An’ I telled her that I could do et, cuz I’m yoo’r sunshine. An’ I could put waters in my ‘erida bottle.”

"You bet I do.” He gave his daughter a bright smile as he knelt down onto the ground, spreading his arms out to welcome her closer. “You have to give me a hug first though.”

"Wow! You painted this?" He smiled genuinely as he took the pot, eying the obnoxiously bright colors. Roy was proud of Lian for everything she created— drawings, art projects, paintings… As long as it was done by Lian, he would love it no matter what it was. "Sweetheart, this looks great. Do you wanna plant something in it?"

Lian beamed at the praise, happily bouncing from foot to foot; excited that her daddy liked it. She had made it for him, after-all. She nodded, her ponytail bouncing with the movement. She reached into her bag and grabbed a small packet of daisy seeds. “Wiss Kim says plantin’ things are ‘ood for the plan-net!”

"Hi, baby." He buried his nose into her hair and gave her head a kiss before he pulled back. "Lemme see what you made."

She grinned excitedly up at him, and untangled herself just enough to reach for her Disney Princess bag and tug it closer. Unzipping it, she was extra careful as she tugged out the small clay flower pot that obviously finger painted by the four year with the amount of bright colors on it. “For Ea-arth day!” She told him happily presenting it to him.
