Fic: ‘When had she grown up?’  
Title: When had she grown up?
Fandom: Castle
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Any time in seasons 1-3.
Summary: Castle watches Alexis sleep, and wonder when she grew up.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

Watching Castle not too long ago, I wondered if Castle might take a few moments to sit and think about when his daughter grew up.

Leaning back in the chair, he sat quietly, loath to disturb the sleeping form outlined by stray strands of light that struggled past the heavy curtains.

When did she become so grown up? When did she step from girl- into womanhood? In some countries, she could be a mother several tim— oh no no no no! He was not going there.

No!

In the early sun, he entwined his fingers and rested his hands on his lap. He couldn’t see much – the tip of her nose and some tousled red hair – but he could imagine her asleep, curled up under the covers and hugging ...

He shook his head. No, she wasn’t snuggling with Monkey Bunky; she’d outgrown him years ago.

When had she grown up and he become so old?

I love this. I always like Alexis/Castle moments - shows that Castle; despite his claims to the contrary; is a lot more mature and responsible than everyone (including himself) thinks!

He goes to a lot of trouble to hide his more serious self!
