Choosing You (1/1)  
Title: Choosing You
Fandom: RPF
Characters: Jared Padalecki/Sandra McCoy
Word Count: 376
Rating: G
Summary: Like any happy couple, Jared and Sandy make the choice to expand their family - by four legs.
Other: A short and sweet little fic written based on a prompt by earthquakedream at ohnokripkedidnt. If you're looking for something profound and fluff-free, don't look here!
Author's Note: Jared and Sandy belong to themselves and, as I see it, to one another. As much as I wish that they could belong to me, they don't! They sure are fun to play with, though!

"This one," Sandy proclaims, scooping a small red tabby up in both hands. "This is the one."

"Why that one?" Jared chances a glance at the mewling kitten squirming in his fiancée's slender fingers and almost misses the little buff-colored troublemaker hanging precariously from the side of the cardboard box that the rest of the litter is contained in. He manages to scoop the fat-bellied baby up before he falls and gently deposits him back among his brothers and sisters.

"Just...because." Sandy manages to sound confident in her reply, in spite of the fact that it's not the valid response that Jared was looking for. "Because I'm a good judge of character, that's why."

Jared smiles as he watches Sandy cradle the fuzzy creature against her chest, her hair creating sable drapes as it spills forward on either side of her face. He can't see the smile that she's wearing, but he can hear it in the whimsical, high-pitched murmurs that she makes to the kitten.

He loves to see her so happy. And it's the smallest things that seem to make her happiest. A rainy day that clears unexpectedly and heralds sunshine. Freshly brewed coffee in bed. Sun-ripened produce from the farmer's market in Brentwood. And, apparently, the runt of the litter.

"Jared?" Sandy asks, lifting her head as she deftly untangles the delicate set of claws from the front of her t-shirt, "Is this one okay?" She gently runs the kitten's swaying tail between her thumb and forefinger, "Can we get this one?"

It's hard for Jared not to immediately crumble under the warm weight that her child-like expectation conjures in his chest, but he somehow manages to keep his grin at bay. It tugs doggedly at his lips as he reaches for the fuzzy chosen one and holds her up in front of his face. The kitten's pink, heart-shaped nose twitches and she sneezes. Jared wipes his own nose dry on his shoulder.

"Sure, baby. You're a good judge of character, right? You obviously know just who to choose." He smiles at Sandy from across the top of the kitten's head and she smiles back, something in her dark eyes softening.

"I made a good decision in choosing you, didn't I?"
