TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Ilama's Plot

Muse A is a single guy who somehow ended up with a tiny baby after an awful relationship came to a screeching end. Right before his college life started. And Muse B is his neighbor in the small apartment complex they share. One with extremely thin walls. After Muse B moves in less than a week, he starts growing aggravated after hearing Muse A's tried and failed attempts night after night of singing out of tune lullabies and talking to himself about how he has no idea how to prepare baby formula. So Muse B finally decides to go over and offer his assistance or at least to get the guy to quiet down, but is shocked at the rather youthful looking person who opens the door. It's obvious the baby wasn't meant to happen, but here Muse A was. Caring for a kid who was no bigger than a party sized bag of lays potato chips, and he might need a bit of help figuring out how to care for it. Since he quickly realized it was nothing like a little dog or cat. He tried watching youtube videos on how to change a diaper- or asking Siri if it was supposed to smell so bad. Along with researching what the heck babies could eat. All in all, Muse A was a mess and Muse B was helping him clean up his life that was crumbling- though they might be falling for each other in the process.

"I don't like talking about my past, so I'm just gonna keep this short and simple for you. Sound good? I hope so cause this is all you're gonna get. My father dipped out on my mother once he figured out she was pregnant, she was 13 and he was 18 after all. Growing up we were poor, didn't have a lot of money. And since we didn't have much, those who did felt the need to always point it out to me. Kids can be ruthless after all. They started making fun of me since I needed to wear the same clothes to school everyday. I got so sick of it one day that I took it out on my mother, blaming her for everything that those kids were saying to me. And believe me when I tell you this, I don't regret anything more in my life than that moment I yelled at my mother. She blew up at me after the 3rd or 4th time that I did it and it set me straight really quick.

Once high school started, I got a job and started football. It was fun, but I wasn't doing much better with people. And that was fine, I didn't need them. I just lived my life, went to college for a few years, got myself in a good place so I could move out of the house, of course still keeping in contact with my mother and helping her as much as I can, and as much as she'll let me. Now I work from home as an accountant and call center employee for the bank. It pays the bills and get's me good experience. That about sums up my life."

Mental/Emotional Issues
Vespers deals with abandonment issues as well as anger management. He and the doctors assume that the abandonment came around sometime after high school, just from the loneliness that he had to experience. As for the anger management, they weren't sure. It had probably been around for a long time, but just never was a problem until college.

The doctors have tried to help Vespers for it, but the man just doesn't want it. He figures he can handle it himself, which he does pretty well. But he does so by not getting close to others. If he doesn't get close to them, then he can't be angry at anyone, right? That has, of course, not helped with his mental stability and he often resorts to drinking most nights to help him not think.


TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Alright cool, I'm glad you like him haha he's one of my oldest RP characters.

And if you don't mind starting that would be great :3

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers was about to loose it.

He had been sitting in his living room listening to some banshee crying next door for hours. At first, you know, it hadn't really bothered him that much. Babies cry, it was to be expected. He was just trying to focus on finishing up and little unpacking that he had, since he was new to this place. But then after the first, like, hour, it hadn't stopped yet. No, instead it just seemed to be getting worse. And it happened often, so often in the past few nights he had been here.

He couldn't even suppress his groan when he heard whoever it was living next to him try, again, to sing a lullaby to the crying child. And he understood why it didn't calm the baby down at all, the guy sounded awful. Vespers couldn't tell if that was just how he sang or if it was just from all the dress and lack of sleep. Even turning up his tv now did nothing as the child literally seemed to be screaming bloody murder.

"There's no way in hell I'm only getting 3 hours of sleep tonight, no fucking way," he mumbled to himself as he finally had enough. Standing up quickly from his couch, he marched to his door and opened it, going right next door. He knocked loudly on the door and stood there waiting, crossing his arms over his chest. He was angry, not at the child crying, but at whatever incompetent fool was suppose to be taking care of it. Cause they obviously didn't know what the hell they were doing.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers waited there for the person to answer the door. It was 1 in the freaking morning and he needed to get some actual work done tomorrow, which meant that he was going to need some actual sleep. And with that child screaming bloody murder, well, he knew that he wasn't going to get that. He put on his best angry face when the door opened, not like that was very hard for him after all, and as soon as it was open, he spoke.

"Do you have any idea what time it is? That kid has been crying since 6," he said to the guy who answered the door, but it was only after a moment that he realized just what the guy looked like. It was a kid. It was a fucking kid, not much older than 18. He couldn't have been. And he looked like death, looked like he hadn't slept or showered in a week, he was filthy too. And the kid, of course, was still screaming like it was being killed. Who the hell did end up living next to?

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers quickly realized his mistake by coming in here and yelling at the kid. He had been frustrated and well, hadn't realized that it was just a kid that was trying to take care of, well, a kid. Insane. Sighing heavily, he ran his fingers through his hair and looked up and down the hallway. He didn't interact with others well so he often got nervous. Plus he had just scolded him from something he probably couldn't help. He obviously didn't know what he was doing. Sighing heavily, he held out his arms for the baby.

"Give him here. Let me try something," he said to the other guy. He may not look like it from the outside, but Vespers had a soft spot for children. Anything smaller than him really, it was just his natural gut instinct to protect and care for them. And the child that was keeping him up the past couple of night, well, he wasn't really an exception to that.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments (( No problem (: ))

"I'm not gonna," Vespers stopped himself, realizing he was getting angry and he shook his head,"I'm not gonna hurt him. I'm not psychotic." He took the small child from the teenager and looked down at it, trying to figure out the problem. First things first, he smelled his diaper. Nothing out of the ordinary there. So either he was hungry or tired and throwing a fit. Or tired, but too hungry to go to sleep. Either way, he just needed to quite him down for a moment. So he held him gently, a little bit different than Ben had previously been holding him. He rocked the infant very slowly in his arms, getting him to make eye contact with him and he also moved his finger into his little hand. From his experience with children, they liked to grab things. A lot. And better he grab his finger then his hair. And then, he started singing softly. Much better than Ben had been singing previously.

It must have been inside my head
I’ve lost the hope that I have lived
And now, at last, it comes to pass
We sleep, we dream, we have no less
Along the path we lost our way
It’s all a game that I must play
And now the weak that fall return to ash, defeated after all
Fade away to the wicked world we left
And I become the dark of you
Say a prayer for the wounded heart within as I become the dark of you

He sang the small verse of a song that he knew, not really a bit fan of lullabies anyways. So, hey, the child wasn't going to understand what he was saying anyways. So might as well sing something he himself enjoyed. And he did it well, not Oscar worthy, but Vespers was a decent singer.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers looked at the child when he was finished singing, offering a small smile to the tiny human in his arms.
"There you go. You're much more tolerable when you're not crying," he said, moving his free hand and wiping at the baby's cheeks and poke his nose gently. Children, especially babies were adorable to him. And it was much easier to see just how cute this kid was now that he wasn't crying. Looking back up at the teenager, he cleared his throat, snapping out of the little personal moment he was having with the infant."You should probably feed him and then put him to sleep. I imagine he's probably tired, but won't sleep because he's hungry. You do know how to make and heat up bottles correctly, yeah?" He raised an eyebrow at him, not going to question where the mother was. That wasn't any of his business, as far as he was concerned, and just from the looks of things, she had dipped out.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers kept an eye on the child he was holding to make sure he was still happy and not going to start screaming again. The noises made him a little worried he was going to go into a fit again, but also maybe he was just a noisy baby. He hoped that was the case. Still rocking him, he listened to the teens words and sighed a bit. The kid didn't seem to know much of anything.
"Alright, show me how you make them then," he said, motioning inside of his apartment. He didn't plan on helping this kid this far, but he didn't wanna have to come over here tomorrow this early in the morning to help him with the baby again. Might as well get everything he knew how right now while he was up and somewhat willing so he wouldn't have to come over again. He just hoped the kid would let him. He already let him hold his baby so he assumed there was some amount of trust there between them. So him coming into his apartment for 5 minutes to help him with a bottle shouldn't be that big of a deal.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers was glad when he got the okay to enter the kids home and he did so once he opened the door and stepped aside. He noticed right away how filthy it was and his nose scrunched up a bit from the smell. There was shit looked like when he first moved into an apartment of his own and didn't quite know how to deal with life. Of course, that only lasted about a month. This looked like it had been going on for months. He slowly nodded his head at his words, then shook it when he was offered a beverage."No thank you. I plan on sleeping after this." He followed him into the room, giving occasional glances down at the child he was holding and sending him smiles. He was a cutie, that was for sure.

Stepping into the kitchen with him, he watched as he put together the bottle, raising his eyebrows a bit. Taking it from him, he adjusted the baby in his arms.
"Your first mistake was not shaking it. You need to shake it a few times before you heat it up. And hold your finger over the top here so it doesn't go flying everywhere. Like this," he explained, demonstrating for him. Every few shakes he would take his finger slightly off that top."That way you're releasing the air every once in a while so it doesn't explode. Also you shouldn't ever heat up the bottle in the microwave because they heat unevenly, so some of the bottle could be really hot while other part could be really cold. So either get an actual bottle heater from the store or just use warm water from the tap." He gave the bottle back to the kid, not willing to give it to the infant. Act on what you told after all, he had just told him not to microwave the bottle."Make a new one, the water should be warm, but not boiling."

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments "Yes you, do you see anyone else in the room?" Vespers said with slight annoyance, but could you blame him? It was 2 in the morning and he was taking care of a baby that wasn't even his. No instead of sleeping he was stuck teaching a kid how to be a parent. He watched as he remade the bottle, raising his eyebrows slightly at his technique with it. As he held it out for him to take, he chuckled a bit as he did so."I meant just filling up the bottle with warm water kid, not using it to heat it up." Uncapping the bottle, he stuck his pinkie in it to check the temperature. It wasn't hot, but it wasn't super cold either. Babies could drink cold milk from time to time and this was more lukewarm. Good enough. Recapping it, he offered it to the infant to see if he was drink it, hoping that he would so he could just work on helping him sleep and then go home. Or, better, yet, he would fall asleep while drinking it. Yeah, that would be ideal.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers watched to make sure the baby actually accepted the bottle and he did, thankfully. He breathed softly when he did, looking over at the teenager.
"It's fine. I shouldn't be too hard on you, I'm just...grumpy," he said in a grumble, sighing softly as he started offering the baby back to his actual father,"If he doesn't sleep after he finishes this off, burp him and then check his diaper one more time. Swaddle him and then lay him down. If he does fall asleep, just swaddle him and lay him down in his crib, okay?" It didn't occur to him that the boy didn't know how to burg of properly swaddle a baby, it seemed like first grade stuff to him so of course the teenager would know how to do it. And while he did that, Vespers could actually try to get some sleep before he needed to wake up the next morning to work.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers waited for the teenager to agree so he could get out of there and get some well needed sleep. Instead, he was just met with a confused look and, with his words, it was confirmed that he in fact didn't even know how to do that. Vespers was a little shell shocked. How could someone that had a kid not know something as basic as that? What the hell had he been doing for 9 months while he waited for the girl he banged to pop the sucker out? Rubbing his forehead, he let out a heavy sigh and nodded his head.

"Guess I'll be with you for a while here then," he said, moving closer so he could see the baby. He was nearly done eating already, proof of just how hungry he had been since he just gave him that bottle. He was sucking it down quick, defiantly looking sleepier now, but he would need to show him how to burp. He waited until the bottle was empty before he started explaining."Okay, hold him like this." He moved the baby around in his arms to show him how, also grabbing a nearby rag and laying it on the teens shoulder."Make sure you keep an arm under his butt. And just pat his upper and mid back until he burps. For kids this young, you're gonna need to do it for about 5 minutes cause they can get gas and spit up if you don't."

(( This is perfect timing for me to do an RP about baby stuff cause I just recently had to learn stuff like this for my baby niece haha ))

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments "You need to kinda force it out of him so that he doesn't get sick or anything else. Just burp him for a few minutes, I'm gonna go get one of your blankets so I can show you how to swaddle him. With any luck he'll fall asleep while you do that. I assume your blankets are in his crib?" Vespers replied, not really waiting for a reply before he headed through the apartment. As he had been told when he moved in, most of the apartments looks identical and he found this to be true with what he had seen with this kids place. So it wasn't hard for him to find his room.

Flipping on the light, he scrunched up his nose at how dirty it was in here as well, clothes everywhere, dishes everywhere, some bottles strewn about. It was fucking disgusting and he wondered how the hell the kid lived like this. Before he exited with the blanket, he took a moment to throw all the clothing he found on the floor off to one side so people could, you know, walk around in there, as well as piled up the dishes and bottles. Finally after a few minutes, he grabbed the first blanket he saw out of the crib and headed back into the kitchen carrying to dirty dishes.

"You really don't wanna leave dirty things hanging around in the same room as a newborn. He could get sick, or get into something he really shouldn't," he said, giving a glance down to what he thought was a bowl of cereal that had been abandoned....for a while.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments "Yeah, you should really do that," Vespers replied as he took another glancing into the living room and again down at the pile of dishes in the sink. It was pretty gross really. Sighing a bit, he checked the how long it had been just as the infant burped once and about 30 seconds later burped again."That should be enough for now. And I can see his eyes shutting so he'll sleep soon. Pass him here and I'll show you how to swaddle him."

He waited for the teen to hand him over and then he went into the bedroom, feeling the infant starting to fall asleep already. While still holding him, he carefully laid out the blanket on the bed so it was completely open and then laid the baby down on it, making sure Ben was paying attention.

"Just take this corner, fold it over, then the corner by his feet, so the same thing and then the last corner tightly. You want his arms to be inside of the blanket and I know this looks really tight, but it's suppose to be. Babies can get suffocated by their blankets if they're loose," he explained to him, showing him how to do and and then he picked up the baby, who was pretty much already asleep. Going over, he placed him in the crib, found a pacified and gave it to him, which he took and very quickly fell asleep.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments "No it won't hurt him, promise. People have been doing it for forever, it's so he doesn't hurt himself while he's sleeping," Vespers explained, watching as the kid sat down on his bed. He looked pretty relieved to say the least, a bit like he was just going to break into tears though. But he had been stressed so Vespers supposed he understood. As he started speaking to him, he shook his head at him.

"No no, I don't need any of your money. Being able to actually get sleep from now on is rewarding enough," he replied to him, glancing at the time. Nearly 3 AM. He really needed to get back over to his apartment and rest. And he was certainly going to do that. Reaching into his pocket, he pulled out his wallet and took out one of his business cards that had his name, address, phone number and e-mail address on it as well as where he worked. Putting his wallet away, he handed the card over to the teen.

"If you need anything, call that number or I work from home. I'm one apartment over from you, C8, and am home most of the day. My name's on the card too, I realized I never told you what it was," he said to him as he passed it over.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments "Vespers, yeah," he replied to the kid with a small nod of his head, listening to their own introductions. They were pretty easy names so he was sure he would be able to remember them. Especially since he had just spent about 2 hours with them trying to calm down Manny and scold Ben on his lack of knowledge. Not that he had really meant to do that but, well, it's what ended up happening.

"I'm sure, I don't need anything from you. Just promise me you'll clean up this place and work hard to get better things for you and this kid, alright? And, for the love of God, remember everything i told you tonight so I don't have to come over and repeat myself," he replied to him as he started walking towards the door,"Remember to call me or stop by if you need anything. I'd rather give you knowledge and experience before you let it completely fall apart, you know?"

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments "Thank you, I get that a lot," Vespers replied with a shrug of his shoulders. And he did, his name wasn't a common one after all. Like, at all. Last time he did a popularity check on his name, there was less than 5,00 people that shared his name, and it wasn't even his name Vespers but Vesper instead. But he supposed that made sense since Vespers was actually a sunset prayer in some catholic branches. He wasn't sure what his mom was thinking naming him that...

"Good, glad to hear it. Now, get some rest, make sure you wake up every two hours to feed him and change his diaper though or else you're gonna have a very rude awakening in the morning when it all hits him," he said to the teen, getting to the door and opening it. He stepped outside and offered a small wave to the teenager and a quite goodnight before going back to his own apartment.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments (( Aww, Ben is so sweet <3 would you like to skip? Maybe to tomorrow and Ben realizes he still doesn't quite know what to do with Manny? ))

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments (( It could be something simple, maybe he wants some diaper changing tips. Or maybe even Manny gets a rash and he doesn't know what to do. ))

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments (( Yeah sure, sounds like a plan! ^^ want me to start or you? ))

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments (( Of course! ^^ ))

Vespers reached his arms up and over his head, stretching them high as he decided to take a little break from work. It was past when he normally would have taken one anyways, around 11. Now it was nearing 1 o'clock. It was time for a late lunch. Standing up from his couch, he went to the fridge and got some leftovers out, making him a plate. After what had happened yesterday, he was a little bit like a zombie moving around the house, very tired, but energy drinks were doing some sort of good for keeping him awake. And he hadn't heard much noise at all from the apartment next to him beside a few little cries, but not nearly the screaming that he had been dealing with this week.

Sticking his plate in the microwave, he walked around his apartment as he waited, checking social media. It was a good thing tomorrow was Saturday, since he didn't work on the weekends. It was the one thing that he had refused to do, since he wanted to keep those 2 days strictly for him time.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers looked up from his phone when the microwave went off, incidating that his meal was done. As he was getting it out though, his phone rang and he glanced down at it. A call from his mother. Answering it, it was just a call from her to ask how he had been doing. His mother was just that kind of person, calling people with no real reason in mind other than to just talk about their day and what's going on in their life. And he loved that about her. Putting his food on the counter, he spoke to his mother instead. Eating could wait.

He was a few minutes into the conversation when there was a loud banging on his door. Frowning heavily, he moved away from the counter that he had been leaning on."Mom I'm gonna have to call you back, okay? I love you...Yeah, buh bye." Pressing end on his cell phone, he moved through his house to the door, undoing the locks and opening the door. He had to say he was surprised to see the teenager from last night standing there. And even more surprised to see the look on his face. He looked very worried, almost scared even.

"Ben, what's the matter?" he questioned, seeing Manny in his arms. The infant looked uncomfortable to say the least."Is something wrong with Manny?"

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers stood there waiting for an explanation on why he looked so worried. Seriously, it looked, again, like the teen was going to burst out in tears. Watching as he undid the diaper, he raised his eyebrows when he noticed the rash on Manny's bum. Hearing his explanation, he sighed heavily, rubbing his forehead. This kid didn't know much of anything, huh?

"Ben, it's just a rash, babies get them sometimes. Nothing too serious to worry about. Come in though, let me give you something for it," he said, stepping aside so the teenager could come in. Vespers' apartment was nice, looks very similar to Ben's own place. His furniture was very nice and everything was clean as a whistle, if there was enough light in here stuff might even start sparkling.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments "It hurts them, yes, but it looks like he has a pretty minor one so it's probably only uncomfortable when you wipe or touch down there. You're suppose to give him diaper rash cream, but until you can get to the store, you're gonna need to use something," Vespers replied to him, shutting the door once Ben was inside. He moved through his house, going to the fridge, opening it and looking for what he needed. Once he found it, he grabbed it and took it back to Ben. handing it to him.

"Aloe vera isn't a permanent solution, but it'll help him feel a little bit better until you get to the store. Just put a little bit on him after you completely wipe him down. He might cry a little bit while you do it, but it's okay. It's uncomfortable when it's touched after all," he explained to him, crossing his arms over his chest once Ben took the bottle from him,"Have you ever gone to the store with him before? Do you own a stroller?"

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments "It isn't your fault, rashes can be caused by a lot of different things. Just be careful on how often you change his diaper, cause it's mostly caused by his pee sitting in his diaper for too long, or even too much moisture from a wipe staying on him," Vespers said with a small shrug, listening to his words and biting his lip. Manny would need to get actually rash cream soon before it got even worse so it would be good if Ben got to the store right away.

"Alright, how about this. You run over, get him all changed and put the aloe on him and bring him back here. I can watch him while you run to the store really quick. Does that sound okay?" he asked him with a questionable look in his eyes. He was new to these people after all and he wasn't sure if Ben would be okay being his newborn with Vespers. Of course, he had shown to him that he was a decent person and he wouldn't ever hurt a child. He just wanted to help.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments (( Do you think Vespers should take him to the store?? (: ))

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments (( I was thinking the same lol okey!! :D ))

Vespers knew right away that the kid wasn't exactly comfortable with letting him take care of his baby. He understood of course, they had only just met yesterday and, while Vespers had been kind to the kid, kindness could be deceiving. Instead, with his next words, he came up with a better plan, nodding his head a bit as he thought about it.

"Okay, well how about this then. You go over, put that on Manny and them come back here. I'll give you a ride to WalMart and help you pick out everything that you need. Deal?" he said with a raise of his eyebrows,"Either way, you're gonna need to get there. You don't wanna leave Manny with me and you can't drive there alone, since you don't have a car seat. And you need to get there today if you wanna help that rash before it gets any worse. So, deal?" He raised his eyebrows a bit at the kid, not knowing how he could possibly deny him after all. It was his only option at this point.

He had an idea he would be able to convince him to take it anyways, but it seemed the teen had a change of heart, taking him up on it. Good, now he wouldn't have to argue.

"I wouldn't have offered if I didn't wanna do it. I'll be here, just get changed and...whatever else you need to do," he replied, watching as he exited. He let out a heavy sigh and quickly texted his mother to let her know he wouldn't be calling her for a few hours. Then he put his leftovers back into the fridge and slipped on a simple t-shirt, jogging pants and shoes, using his hands to brush through his hair. Good enough. Once Ben returned, he grabbed his keys.

"No problem kid. Let's just get to the store," he said, closing and locking up his apartment. He decided to take the stairs, it was quicker anyways than the stupid elevator that stopped on every single floor."Now really, you're not suppose to carry a infant in the car, but it'll be more frowned upon and more likely to get me pulled over if you're in the front seat. So climb into the back, the WalMart is only a 10 minute drive so you should be fine."

I didn't have anything of interest going on today anyways," Vespers replied with a shrug of his shoulders, getting to where he had parked his car. It was a very nice looking car, nothing too out there, but it was obviously new. And obviously very well kept. He unlocked it and opened the door for Ben before heading around to the drivers side, hoping in. After a quick look at them, he started the car up, metal music playing from the stereo, and started driving towards the store.

"So how long have you been on your own?" he asked after they got a block or so away from the building. He was helping this kid out after all and he had to admit that he was pretty curious about his backstory. After all, he was an inexperienced kid with a few weeks old child with no mother or parents around him. It was a tough situation.

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers waited to hear Ben's answer, driving carefully through the streets. Thankfully there weren't a lot of crazy drivers around here, at least in this part of the city. Other part, yes, certainly. It was New York after all. But here at this hour? Not a lot to worry about. As he started to explain, he listened attentively, wanting to remember what he was telling him. He frowned a little bit through his explaining, seeing that was a complicated situation that he got himself in for sure. Well, not got himself in. More like just a situation he was in.

"I see. I'm sorry to hear about your parents and your girlfriend, that must be pretty tough for you with no one to turn to," he empathized with him, scratching his beard a bit as they approached a red light,"I am pretty much always home though, if you ever need anything. Advice for anything, even if it's non baby related. I'm a fair amount of years older than you are so I know more about, you know, life and living by yourself. And if you need financial advice or help, I work for a bank so I can tell you pretty much anything you need to know and I have a lot of friends in a lot of different places if you ever need extra money or a steady job."

TeddyBear {HarpyAshe}  **Well You Built Up A World Of Magic, Cause Your Real Life Is Tragic** (harpyashe) | 16508 comments Vespers continued to drive as Ben replied to him, glancing over at him from his mirror from time to time. He still couldn't seem to wrap his head around the situation. He was so young and didn't even have any parents? Left to care for a child alone? Yeah, mothers died in birth sometimes, causing the father to need to care for the child, or give it up for adoption. But to have someone so young? That was a bit more rare. And someone so young that didn't even have parents to help? An odd and quite sad situation indeed.

"Right, I get that....But a more stable job would help you get him everything that you need for him, you know, in the long term," he explained to him with a shrug,"And like I said, I'm right next door and home most of the time unless there's a meeting I need to go to. I may still be somewhat of a stranger, but I'm a stranger that you trust enough to get into the car with with your son so you must trust me to some extent. I can watch him whenever you need it." He was just digging a hole deeper and deeper for himself now. He always tried to stay away from other people, now here he was offering to watch someone's infant for them?

I could probably get you in the bank, I got friends in restaurants, insurance companies, collection agencies, flower arranging and gift basket making, supermarkets, you can choose and I can probably get something for you. And you won't have to pay me anything for babysitting him, I really don't mind. You need that money more than I do after all," Vespers explained to him with a shrug of his shoulders. He didn't really had an ulterior motive behind all of this, he just saw this kid in such a bad situation and he just wanted to help for..whatever God forsaken reason.

He happened to pull into the parking lot a few moments later to the local WalMart and there weren't too many cars around, thankfully. So it should be pretty easy to get what they needed and get out. He started finding a parking spot as he waited for Ben's reply.

"Alright, then I'll talk to a buddy I know that owns a restaurant nearby, he'll probably be able to get you in. And if not him, I know others. When we get back, just write down what times and days you're able to work," Vespers replied to him with a nod. Once he was parked, he shut off the car and climbed out. He did move around the other side to open the door for Ben as well since, you know, he had infant in arms. Closing the door once he was out, he motioned with his head to he WalMart."Alright, let's go and look for some stuff."
