I feel awful. (My mom’s first words upon coming home was “are you sick?” which explains a lot because I don’t usually look sick even if I’m sick.) So obviously, what I had to do… was write MakoRin Family to cheer myself up.
Also, because this seems to be a very important headcanon to my feels, I’ll tag all of these drabbles with #MakoRinFam. I’ll fix the others tomorrow.
Rin had been running for an hour in his usual route when he saw Ryan throwing stones at the beach. At her side was Nagisa and Rei who were watching her fondly. “Hey!” He called out, jogging towards them with a small frown on his face. He crouched down when he was close enough, watching as his six-years old daughter ran towards him excitedly. “Good morning, baby.”
She hugged him briefly, then put one of her hands on her hips while she used the other to poke on his cheeks. “You’re frowning.”
That made him smile. She always scolded him about it, something she took from Makoto. She’d imitate Makoto’s tone and pose every time he complained about anything. It was adorable. “I’m just thinking why my baby is alone in the beach.”
"I’m not alone!" She exclaimed, eyes wide. She threw her hands up, motioning towards her two uncles. "Nagisa-kun and Rei-chan is there!"
Rin blinked. “Eh?” He asked, looking around. “Really? I can’t see them.”
She pouted and crossed her arms as she looked at her uncles. “You used the invisibility spell again!” She scolded. “Daddy would worry if I’m alone!”
Nagisa positively melted at her cuteness, while Rei laughed out loud. “Aw, Ryan, we wanted to surprise your daddy!” Nagisa explained, waving his right hand as if to dispel the spell. “Now, Rin-chan, do you see us?”
"Oh!" Rin faked a gasp. "They’re really there! What a shock!"
Ryan smiled brightly at them, eyes shining. “Nagisa-kun’s magic is the best.” She announced solemnly.
Nagisa preened at that, loving the compliment. He’s always been the one who would tell outrageous stories and do magic tricks just to impress his godchildren. Rei rolled his eyes, smiling fondly at his partner. “Makoto’s at the animal clinic.” He said instead, as way of explanation. “Kotori insisted on waiting for you at Haruka’s.”
Rin groaned, nose crinkling as he looked up in the sky with despair. “He’s in love.” He said. “Haruka will steal my son from me.”
"Kotori is Papa’s!" Ryan exclaimed, placing her little hands on each side of Rin’s face. "Daddy shouldn’t worry! Kotori is Papa’s!"
He couldn’t help but laugh and nod. “And Ryan is…?”
"Daddy’s!" She proudly exclaimed. "I’m daddy’s favorite girl!"
Rin couldn’t stop himself from rushing forward and hugging the little girl, standing up to spin her around as she laughed happily. “Of course you are! Ryan is daddy’s favorite girl!”
