((Ironically enough, I always saw Lucy as the most musically inclined Nicelanders))
I always had two thoughts in my head when it comes to Gene/Mary babies;
1) Surprise baby would be a surprise. Gene would be freaking out because he never had plans on being a father without thinking about it first. Mary could reassure him and he would love the baby but be kind of overprotective of them (when in public. Without people to show off in front of, Gene would just let loose and play with the baby until they both fell asleep)
2) Gene and Mary would known but Gene would spend the next nine months being so protective and worried over Mary, HE would end up being more exhausted than she would be. Then the baby would be born and he cries and its all sweet because ‘OH GOD. I DIDN’T THINK THIS WOULD EVER HAPPEN! I AM SO HAPPY MARY! I LOVE YOU!!’
山桜, yamazakura. crafted to resemble the wild cherry blossoms that grow in the mountainous regions all over Japan. Its sheer beauty is sublime…Shiro’an 白餡 filling was sweet but subtle. not overbearing. Sakura’an 桜餡 would be more apt I guess but this is very good already.
