When Harper first told Malcolm she was pregnant, the news did not go over very well at all. In fact, Malcolm's reaction had worried Harper, even frightened her. She wondered whether she should even keep the child. Everything in her brain screamed not to, and that they were making a giant mistake. Neither of them were ready for parenthood, that was pretty evident. But eventually, Malcolm mellowed, and seemed much more keen on the idea of being a father and starting a family.
Harper was so relieved when Malcolm had changed his tune, and soon he was spending more and more time at her place than his own. Living separate lives felt like a distant memory, and Harper began to truly believe the two were becoming a family. Harper even convinced them to take a vacation, to relax together before the baby came. Somewhere beautiful and warm, but also within their budget. Where? Bermuda!
The sun felt so soothing on her protruding baby bump, and she ran her hands over it as the two laid on sunbeds on the beach. Everything had finally fallen into place for Harper. She was finally genuinely, and completely, happy. Her head turned and she smiled to herself, eyes focusing on him, "I love you." It rolled off the tongue so nicely. Everything about the moment felt right. Nothing could taint this feeling for her.

When he had first heard the news, he was stunned. More so by the fact that there was a person inside Harper. Malcolm never imagined himself as a dad. Maybe because his own childhood had been so sucky, he figured he would be better off not having kids because they’d be less screwed up. After talking to one of his friends from work, he realized that he couldn’t have that defeatist attitude and he couldn’t let Harper do this alone. He loved her and cared about her and this didn’t have to be a death sentence on their relationship. He had started researching some stuff and the more he saw, the more he thought that maybe this kid didn’t have to have the kind of life he did. He would have an amazing mom and a dad who was active in their life.
Malcolm had been leery about a vacation at first. After all, they were going to be having a baby soon. They would need to save their incomes to put into that but Harper using her usual powers of persuasion managed to get him into it. The more time they spent there, the more he was glad that he had let her talk him into it. Malcolm was lying out in the sun, so relaxed that he was on the verge of falling asleep. He would occasionally peak over to see Harper peering at her belly. Hearing her words, Malcolm lifted his glasses before getting up from his seat and kneeling along the side of hers. “I love you too”, he said as he lifted her chin up and pressed his lips against hers to give a slow, tender kiss.
“Anddd”, he trailed off, moving down towards her belly. “I love you too”, he said giving her stomach a kiss. “You got anything in particular you feel like having for dinner tonight?” Malcolm wasn’t picky, he just wanted to make sure that it was something that she could have that wouldn’t harm the baby or make her sick. He hated seeing her like that.
