Alfred walked down the street toward his home, where his beloved [Name] and son Connor were waiting for him. He had been away for almost a year, fighting for the country he held so dear to his heart, America and he had only just returned. He was excited to see his family again after so long, so he wanted to surprise them. He took a deep breath as he stood on the porch. He was a little worried about how [Name] was going to react. He didn't know if she was going to go crazy and yell at him for not calling first, or if she was going to become a sobbing mess in his arms. Then there was his son, Connor ... how was he going to react?
"Well ... here goes nothing" He said, ringing the doorbell
He waited patiently as he heard Connor becoming excited about someone being at the door ... when he heard Connor keep saying "Is it the Postman?", he couldn't help but smile. The door opened and, to Alfred's surprise, Arthur was standing there. Arthur was stunned by Alfred's surprise visit
"Wh-what the bloody hell are you doing here?" Arthur asked, his voice almost a whisper
"I came home early, bro. I wanted to surprise you all" Alfred chuckled
Arthur started to tear up and he hugged Alfred tightly, as if he had no intention of letting go again
"B-Bastard ... Bastard ..."
"Does that mean you missed me?" Alfred chuckled
"Sh-shut up!"
Arthur was too proud to admit it, but it was obvious he had missed the American idiot. Alfred hugged the now blubbering Brit and let out a chuckle
"Hey, don't cry. You'll get me going, man" Alfred said
"DADDY!"
Alfred looked up and saw his little boy, no older than six, at the other end of the hall
"Hey, champ!" Alfred said, letting go of Arthur
Arthur backed away so Connor could run up to his father. Alfred knelt down, caught him and hugged him tightly
"Daddy, you're home!" Connor said, full of joy
"Yeah, I'm home ..." Alfred said, holding back the tears
It had almost been a year since he held his son in his arms ... and it was a wonderful feeling to be reunited with him after so long
"How are you doing, champ?" Alfred asked
"I'm ok, Daddy" Connor said, grinning like a Cheshire Cat
"Where's your mother?" Alfred asked
"She's out shopping, Daddy. She got Uncle Arthur to look after me" Connor said
"Well then, Mommy's going to have a wonderful surprise when she gets home, huh?" Alfred chuckled

-Later, that afternoon-

Alfred remained in his hiding spot as [Name] came home. He resisted the urge to run to her and hold her in his arms again
"[Name] looks just as beautiful as the day I left" He thought to himself with a smile
"Hello, Connor! Were you good for Arthur?" He heard [Name] ask
"Yes, Mummy" Connor replied
Alfred knew that Connor was going to find it difficult to keep Alfred's return a surprise. Arthur was pretty good at keeping his excitement under control, but Alfred knew that he wanted to tell [Name] that Alfred was home just as much as Connor did
"What's the big grins about?" [Name] laughed
Alfred ventured out of his hiding place and stood behind her with his trademark goofball grin as his son and Arthur looked at him
"Look behind you and see for yourself" Arthur said
[Name] turned around, with a puzzled look on her face which quickly turned to surprised and within seconds she was squealing and trying tears of joy
"I'm home, baby!" Alfred said, laughing
[Name] hugged him, crying into his chest. Connor hugged Alfred's leg and Arthur just gave him a slight nod, obviously embarrassed about his earlier behaviour
"I can't believe it ..." [Name] sobbed
Alfred chuckled, patting his beloved wife's back
"Hey, what are you crying about?" He asked
"I'm ... I'm just so happy!" She wailed, clinging to him tighter
Alfred smiled, knowing that tonight ... for the first time in almost a year, he would sleep beside [Name]. And he wouldn't trade that for anything in the world ...

The End
This is a One-Shot

In this case, it was a reference to Assassin's Creed III, which my brother was playing at the time when I wrote this
