    Summary

    ...until there comes another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear.

    She stood out among the royal party – Eddard noticed her almost immediately. She was the image of Robert – tall and still growing taller, broad shouldered, with thick black hair and a sharp jaw. But there was something of the queen in her, too; in her lips, her brows, and most of all in her green eyes. She would have been a great beauty, but she stood slump-shouldered, dowdy, with her eyes on the ground. Someone had dressed the poor thing in a fussy gown of black silk, cloth of gold and Myrish lace that only served to make her shoulders seem wider. Queen Cersei muttered something in the ear of her eldest child, irritable, and the princess straightened her shoulders.

    “You could come with us.”
    Jason blinked at him, laughed, and then stopped when Salim didn’t join in with him.
    “Wait, you... you’re serious?”

    Summary

    “I hate to intrude,” Alfred said, somehow utterly coherent despite being in his dressing gown and slippers, as he stuck his head into the kitchen. “But I would advise checking your voicemail.”

    “Who was it? Lucius?” Bruce muttered into his mug.

    “No,” Alfred said, and for the first time in months, a note of something like pressing urgency crept into his crisp accent. “A certain Miss Belgrave.”

    “Who?” Bruce looked up, scowling. “Is she one of Dick’s teachers?”

    Alfred arched a single eyebrow.

    …“Hi Bruce… if this is actually your number…” A woman’s scratchy, uncertain voice filled the silent kitchen. There was a quaver of nervous, watery laughter, as if she were on the verge of tears. “I just thought I should… um, let you know… I waited until I could see my obgyn, so you wouldn’t think this was some- well, you probably do, but- I’m pregnant. And I know you would probably want a paternity test, or whatever, so that’s happening… Oh, shit, I just thought I should let you know I’m keeping it. Um. That’s decided.” Her voice shook so badly for a second he thought the voicemail had dissolved into static. “Bye!” She hung up.

    Bruce stared at the phone for so long his tea grew cold.
