“And how old is your daughter?” the woman on the gate asked as Jack, Ianto, and Meriel reached the front of the queue.
“I’m four and a half!” Meriel announced proudly, jumping up and down, and the woman smiled at her, handing Jack the tickets and letting them all into the amusement park.
“What a clever little girl you are!”
“Thank you!” Meriel beamed up at her.
Ianto was silent as they followed the winding path, waiting until they were well away from the entrance before saying anything. Finally he looked down at their little girl, holding both their hands and swinging happily between her daddies.
“Four and a half? You’re five, Meriel; your birthday was just last week.”
Meriel shrugged. “The lady didn’t know that, and the sign said under fives get in free,” she said reasonably, as if that explained everything.
Jack grinned proudly. “Look how clever our princess is! She read that sign all by herself and she hasn’t even started school yet! Obviously she takes after her Taddy.”
Ianto frowned at his husband. “She’s clever alright. Our daughter just lied about her age to get in free; she gets that from you!”
“I’m a proud daddy.”
