Ludwig just stared at the little white stick that had changed his life forever. His beloved [Name] was pregnant ... and he wasn't sure if he was even ready to become a father. He had no idea who to turn to for advice. He couldn't ask Feliciano, because he would just squeal and tell everyone about the baby ... Ludwig couldn't ask Kiku, because he didn't like being touched ... and Ludwig couldn't ask his older brother Gilbert because he was a douche and ran away from marriage at every given opportunity. So what was Ludwig supposed to do?
"West? ... Hey, West!"
Gilbert managed to snap Ludwig out of his thoughts, which on this occasion was a good thing
"I'm going out for a drink, want to come?" Gilbert asked
"Ja, sure. I need to clear my head" Ludwig sighed
"What's bugging you? Did you and [Name] have a fight?"
"Nein, nein ... nothing like that. It's just ... she's pregnant"
"What, really?! You love machine, why didn't you tell me?"
"I o-only found out yesterday ..."
"That's great, bro! I've always wanted to be an Uncle!"
"I know, so you kept saying while we were dating"
"If [Name] is pregnant, you shouldn't go out drinking"
"What?! B-but I need the time to clear my head ..."
"Why do you need to clear your head? What's up?"
"I ... I don't think I'm ready to become a father"
An uncomfortable silence fell when Ludwig uttered those words. He began to feel tense ... and he wished that his brother would say something to break the silence. Anything ... anything at all would suffice but Gilbert remained silent. It wasn't until several minutes later when Ludwig cleared his throat, just to break the silence, that Gilbert spoke
"Look, West. I know you think you're not ready, but that doesn't mean you definitely aren't" He said
He had meant every word he said, which was rare to see from "the Great and Awesome" Gilbert Beilschmidt. Usually he would joke around or make some inappropriate comment ... but this time, there wasn't a hint of sarcasm or joking in what he said
"You really think I'm ready?" Ludwig asked
"Hey, I may cause the furniture to have an orgasm just by sitting on it ... but that doesn't mean I don't know a thing or two about looking after a kid. I mean, I took care of you right?" Gilbert said with a smile
Ludwig hated to admit it, but his older brother was right. Gilbert had taken care of him since he was very young, when their grandfather died and their parents went missing
"And now, I look after you" Ludwig said with a chuckle
"Touché, but I'm only here until I can afford my own place" Gilbert said, with that infamous cocky grin of his
It certainly was weird that Gilbert was telling Ludwig to be responsible ... when it was always the other way around. It was kind of surreal, to say the least
"I know you're nervous ... but come on, you'll do fine. Trust me" Gilbert said with a smile
"What makes you say that?" Ludwig asked
"Hey, if you could put up with people like me and Feliciano, then you can take care of a kid" Gilbert chuckled
The brothers laughed
"You'll be ok, West" Gilbert said with a smile
"Thank you, Gilbert" Ludwig said
Gilbert gave him a thumbs up as he left the house, leaving Ludwig alone with his thoughts. He gave a small sigh and smiled. It wasn't going to be easy being a parent, but he remembered that nothing worth doing was ever easy ... and that this could be the last chance to be a father. He took a deep breath and stood up
"I'll go see how she's doing" He said with a smile

-Several Months Later-

Ludwig stared at the tiny baby in the crib. The little boy was like a mini version of himself. [Name] walked up to him and smiled
"Oh, he's so small" She sighed
"Ja, but he'll get bigger" Ludwig said
"I know, I know" She said, looking at him
She noticed the look on his face and became concerned
"What's wrong?" She asked
"[Name] ... several months ago, I didn't think I was ready to be a father" He said, feeling a little better for being honest
"And now?" She asked, with a hurt expression
"Now ... seeing our little boy has made me determined to be the best father I possibly can" He said, full of confidence
[Name] gave a big smile and kissed him on the cheek
"There's the man I married" She said, hugging him
The baby began to fuss and Ludwig picked him up. [Name] watched with a smile as he tried to calm the baby down. And, to his surprise, succeeded
"Looks like he just wanted his Daddy" [Name] giggled
Ludwig let out a small squeak as the baby tried to feed from him and [Name] laughed
"Or he's hungry" He said
[Name] took the baby, with a smile on her face
"I'll go feed him" She said, leaving the room
Ludwig sat on the bed, giving a long sigh. Gilbert peered in and smirked
"You doing ok, West?" He asked
"Ja, I'm ok. Being a father is tough" Ludwig sighed
"I know, I know ... but come on, it's worth it right? I mean the kid's adorable and you have a hot wife!" Gilbert said
"Hey, get your own" Ludwig growled
"I'm kidding, I'm kidding!" Gilbert laughed, coming into the room and patting his younger brother on the back "You're doing great, bud"
"Really?"
"Ja, you're doing better than I would"
"If you put the effort in and the found the right girl, you would"
"Nein, I'm not looking for that mushy stuff right now. I'm not ready for that kind of commitment"
"Man whore"
"Hey, that's not cool!"
The brothers continued to chat as [Name] came into the room with the baby, who had fallen asleep in her arms. The brothers looked at her as she put the baby in the crib
"You guys having a nice chat?" She asked with a smile
"Ja, we were just talking about how, if Gilbert put his mind to it, he could find a girl and have a child too" Ludwig said
"Hey, quit pressuring me to settle down!" Gilbert whined
[Name] giggled
"I'm sure he'll find someone in his own time, Luddie. Give him a break" She said
"Ja, get off my back. Unless there are hot chicks involved, I'm not interested" Gilbert grumbled
"Gilbert ..." Ludwig sighed
"Hey, I can dream can't I?!" Gilbert said in a shrill tone
"Shh! You'll wake the baby!" [Name] said in a quiet tone
"Sorry ..." The brothers said in unison
Ludwig stood up and took one last glance at the baby before leaving the room with Gilbert so they could continue their conversation without waking the poor child up. The conversation ended up going on for a long time, but Ludwig did agree to keep off Gilbert's back about settling down for a while
"They say it's tough being a parent ... try being Gilbert's brother for a day" Ludwig thought to himself as Gilbert left the room
He sat there alone for a while and a smile crept onto his face. He was actually looking forward to the things he would get to do with his son when he was older. Fatherhood was starting to look like a wonderful adventure well worth having

Honestly, me being a mom would be impossible and scary.
Me, just seeing a baby causes me to back away as far as possible because when I glance at the baby, I get all nervous and start to imagine bad things which make me get WAY too cautious and that gets me all tingly. And just seeing how small and soft and delicate the baby is makes me think "Like HELL IM TOUCHING THAT BABY!! IF I HOLD HER/HIM, IT MIGHT END UP HURT!!" (I'm clumsy ^_^")
EVEN TODAY MY AUNT HAD A BABY, AND I WAS IMAGINING THE BABY GETTING HURT OR SOMETHING GOING WRONG!!! AND PLUS, THE BABY KEPT FLAILING HIS LITTLE ARMS AND HOW THEY DELICATLEY CARRIED IT. I WAS LIKE "NOPE! I AIN'T TOUCHING THAT BABY!!"
I literally backed away.

Yesterday i visited my aunt and the baby,
My mom told me
"Put the hat on the baby!!!"
And i was like
"NOPE!!"
She got annoyed and sighed saying,
"Just like her father..."

Thanks a lot Dad,
It's somewhat your fault why my curiosity killed my innocence...
