Summary: future fic; Oliver sings his daughter back to sleep.
Author's Notes: For my theechochorus table, prompt: lullaby

“Waaahhh!”

The cry had Oliver waking up with a start and glancing at the time, he groaned. Hearing a moan next to him, he turned and quickly pressed a kiss on his wife’s forehead.

“Sleep,” he whispered, “I got it.”

She murmured something incomprehensible and fell asleep once more. Oliver stood, stretched, and headed toward the sound.

As expected, when he entered the nursery, his 6-month old daughter was sitting in her crib, wide-awake and crying her eyes out.

In a few strides, he was at her side and picking her up. Once in her father’s arms, Laura’s crying stopped and she was only slightly whimpering.

“You just missed your old man, didn’t you?” he murmured, stroking her back gently. “Don’t worry, Daddy’s here now.”

He sat down on a nearby chair, resting her against his shoulder. Looking into her wide green eyes, he smiled tiredly.

“You need to go to sleep,” he told her, “It’s early, princess.” But the look she gave him basically said, “I don’t think so, Daddy”.

Sighing, he tried to think of a solution and then an idea struck him. When he was a baby, his mom often sang to sleep … maybe it would work on her namesake.

Quietly, he began to sing the same song that his mother used to sing to him. Within minutes, his daughter’s eyes slowly closed and soon, she was fast asleep.

Being extra careful, he placed her back into her crib. Ollie stood there for a few minutes, just watching his daughter sleep. Some days, he could hardly believe that this little miracle was his.

Turning around, he was about to go back to his bedroom but froze at what he was greeted with. His wife was standing in the doorway, a warm smile on her face.

“How long were you standing there?” he asked, keeping his voice low in fear of waking Laura again.

“Long enough,” Chloe replied, closing the distance between them. “Didn’t know you could sing, Arrow.”

“What can I say?” Oliver joked, pulling his wife into his arms. “I’m a man of many talents.”

“That you are,” she agreed, raising her head. He lowered his until their lips met in a gentle kiss.

Even when they separated, Chloe stayed in his arms, resting her head on his shoulder, the two of them just content to watch Laura sleep.

Oliver glanced between his wife and his daughter. At one point, he thought he’d never have this … a family to cherish, love and call his own. But now he had Chloe and Laura and his life couldn’t get any better.

Yes, Oliver Queen was a lucky man indeed.

Awww!! This was perfectly sweet. :) It's good to see Ollie getting the good life--the REAL good life-- for once.

I'm so glad you liked it! And yes, no matter how much I get frustrated with Ollie, I just want him to be happy. I hope he does get his happy ending, or at least, I'll try it for him in fanfic. LOL :D

Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :)

Aww, so beautiful. I love that Oliver sang to her (he was probably wrapped around her little baby fingers before she was even born! :D). I loved it! It was sweet and warm and wonderful.

awwww this is so sweet.

I actually made a fic about a fan meeting his crush and they hook up that night. They have the best time of their life and then *poof* the man never hears about his girlfriend again. Flash forward 6 months later when a friend of his girlfriend finally gets him on the phone (just when he is about to do something terrible to himself) and the girl and her fan are reunited... but a lot has happened in the time they have been apart.

She got his child!!

Now you are making me itch to write a sequel of my fic where the guy takes care of "mommy duty" just like Oliver did in this fic!

Well done honey!!!

I'm glad you liked it! :)

Ooh, wow, that's interesting. And hee, I don't mind inspiring muses. I love the idea of Daddy!Ollie and domestic fics are something I really enjoy. That's why when I saw this prompt, I couldn't resist!

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing! :D
