    Summary

    Nine times Anthony held a baby, and one time someone held Anthony, or;

    "But every day, he had a moment of respite.

    Hyacinth never settled, save for when she was in his arms. Anthony found he never settled, save for when he was holding her. So, it became a mantra. A tether. A reminder as to why he was doing this. How he could do it, how he had to succeed."

    _________________________________________________________________________

    this one-shot was written as a result of the breakdown everyone had at the thought of Anthony holding a baby. It was also specifically inspired by a tweet by the lovely @thickerboots (or Wagamiller on here), asking for Anthony holding Baby Basset and "Anthony holding baby Hyacinth, with one of his fingers-and his whole entire heart-clenched in her little first." This is for you <3

    Summary

    “And then I saw you on the ground in the rain, and I knew without a shadow of a doubt what a fool I’d been. Because I love you, Kate, so much more than I ever fathomed it possible to love anyone. I love you so much I do not know what to do with myself. And I saw you still on the ground and I thought our life was over before it ever had a chance to begin.”

    What if Anthony Bridgerton got his head out of his ass and said exactly how he felt during his first proposal to Kate?
