"All right, let's see if our little friend is going to say hullo today-- ah ha! There we are."

Healer Durkin prods the floating sonogram image with his wand, and moves the transmitting stone just a hair so that the fetus comes into sharper focus.

Nymphadora blinks at the picture with wide, eager eyes.

"How does it look? Is it the proper size? Is that the head?"

Bernard's looking a little starry-eyed, himself; they really don't have anything like this with muggle technology in the 1970's, and he missed this part with Anthony. "--I think I see a... thing."

Well, it's a blob. What can you do?

A laugh bubbles out of Bernard's throat before he can stop it, and he reaches a hand towards the image, then pulls back. "Can you tell--"

It takes some doing, as far as Bernard can tell, and he doesn't know how Durkin can even say which way is up, but then the healer rocks back on his heels and points to a fuzzy bit of screen.

"Well, congratulations. Have you got a list of girl names written up?"

Bernard is speechless.

Durkin nods, grinning, and Bernard interjects, "She is a girl, baby."

"We'll have to pull one out of a hat," he laughs in reply, his forehead thunking against her shoulder fondly.

Durkin adjusts the stone again, looking for something only he knows. "...Well, this young lady looks very healthy indeed." His gaze flickers up to Nymphadora's face and down to her ankles. "And how is her mother?"

Bernard bites his lip, unsure whether to speak up or not. He shifts his hand to lace his fingers with his wife's, squeezing lightly.

Bernard sits up straighter, blinking rapidly. "I'm sorry. What is that?"

Durkin nods and begins to scribble a few notes with his quill in preparation.

Chewing his lip, Bernard shifts in his seat. His free hand slips into his pocket to encounter... nothing.

He stopped carrying matches regularly some months ago.

He wishes he had them now.

"Will we have results today, or...?"

Bernard looks away while the blood is being drawn. He's not squeamish about blood. He's not.

He swallows thickly and looks at the ceiling, counting the beams forwards and back.

"I know," he replies, his voice level, dropping his gaze to his hands. "I'm fine."

Durkin sends the vials off and turns back to regard them.

Regard Bernard.

"Let's not get ahead of ourselves, all right?"

As soon as the door snicks shut, Bernard turns to Nymphadora, his eyes wide.

"Tell me I'm overreacting."

Date: 2007-05-12 04:49 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-woodpecker.livejournal.com
He laughs; the sound is hollow. "Not reassuring."

His arm twitches as he realizes: "Fuck. I'm an idiot. I forgot."
