When Wyatt had called Axel over to babysit Juniper for a week or two, he’d failed to give Axel adequate instructions on how to care for her, especially since she had a sniffly nose. Axel had been under the weather before and he knew what it was like, but that didn’t mean he knew how to deal with a sniffly nose on a thing that was like, a tenth the size of him.

He’d waited for a couple of days, but it didn’t seem to get better. Juni was just as energetic as ever and somehow always managed to get him to take her to the park. What? He couldn’t say no to her cute face, okay? Perfectly normal reaction. Yeah. Totally. But when the sniffly nose didn’t go away, Axel decided that there was definitely something wrong with the kid. Having decided that, he decided to get her fixed - by taking her to the ER. Because that, too, was a logical reaction. The kid was broken. Her nose needed immediate fixing, and the ER was the place to go for ‘immediate’.

Now the doctors all gave him funny looks when he walked in and demanded that Juni be fixed, so he ended up having to wait in a line, checking every so often to make sure that the runny nose wasn’t like… drowning her or anything. When it was finally their turn, Axel had to duck out of the room for a moment. He was in the hospital pretty often, but he just couldn’t bear the sight of Juni getting the regular checks. He knew it was stupid, but he just didn’t like seeing others in the hospital.

SHE'S A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN WITH A
wild side
Harmony was exhausted. She had been on her feet all day. One call after another. Today was pure chaos. All she wanted to do was take off her shoes and have a nice long warm bath. Baths were probably among her favorite thing about 'civilized' society. The ironic part was that she had gone through way worse before coming to live in the 'real world' but after acclimatizing to all the luxuries, her tolerance level had lessened. She wasn't a fan of that so she tried to keep an eye on it and not let it get worse but she slipped when she wasn't paying attention.

Harmony was trekking through the ED after finishing up her last call. Finally she could go home. Little did she know a certain daredevil was chilling with a little girl in the waiting room she was traversing at that moment.

A flash of oddly-familiar looking blonde hair passed him by and Axel had to take a second look. Whoa. He knew that person. He was so sure, he could taste it in the air. Okay. Maybe not that literally, but he knew who that was. Maybe he was a little bit masochistic, but he was definitely going to poke the bear. So what if he had a kid in his arms? Who said no to kids, when they were so cute? Smirking, he followed her, long legs easily enabling him to catch up to, and keep pace with her. Something that he could do now, and not in their first meeting.

Besides, he’d been… under influence. Well, for the latter part of their meeting time. But she had amused him. A lot.

“Another day, another patient in need of emergency treatment, I see. Anyone more interesting than I come by yet?” Axel asked casually, pretending for all the world that they were the best of friends. Juniper sniffed, but looked at Harmony curiously.

Harmony knew there was someone behind her. She was aware of her surroundings at all times, even while asleep although that had unfortunately faded in potency over the years due to the false sense of security garnered by locks and doors and being told there was no one actually after you...or your dad. But she didn't know who it was so when someone spoke like they were addressing her, she was surprised.

She didn't recognize the voice right off, but she turned around to face them anyway, and in spite of herself, she smiled upon seeing him. No way would she not remember the guy who had jumped off a building for kicks. "Nobody's been jumping from buildings just for the kicks lately," she admitted. Her eyes dropped to three year old kid. She wasn't so great with kids. Like how often were you supposed to walk them? "Why are you back here? Can't get enough of modern medicine?" Maybe if she ignored the kid, everything would be OK.

Axel definitely caught the smile, but chose not to point it out. Oh yeah. She definitely didn't think he was a complete idiot, if that was any indication thereof. Axel was pretty sure she wasn't a person who did - she seemed not to have the patience to deal with it, last time they'd met. And he wasn't sure if idiots could even handle her.

“Good. No competition. I can appreciate it in this case.” Not that he's always appreciate it. Axel happened to enjoy competition to some extent. Especially stunts. He really did not like to lose to someone else when pulling off stunts. And that had the potential to get dangerous very quickly.

He snorted. “If I need modern medicine, you're the first person I'd call. But I need a doctor to fix Juni. Her nose’s been running nonstop for a week. Noses aren't supposed to do that, as far as I know.” He then turned slightly to face the kid more towards Harmony. “Juni, say hello to Emmy.” Oh yes. He knew her name. But Juniper was not going to be able to say “Harmony”, so it was back to the nickname he’d given her.

"That makes two of us. Having more guys like you around, jumping off buildings for fun, well, it would definitely make my job way busier than it already is." She would have asked him about his leg, too, but he went into a spiel about the kid he was toting around. Yeah, Harmony saw a lot of people every day, but she had a really good memory. When Axel--yeah she remembered his name too--mentioned the girl's ailment, she eyed the kid again. One little touch and she would know what was wrong with her, but just by looking she had a feeling that it wasn't anything too serious.

She rolled her eyes. "Harmony," she corrected. "Nice to meet you, Juni," the blonde said, albeit perhaps a little too adulty. Seriously, she was crap with kids. "Your daughter doesn't look like she's too sick. Probably just some nasal congestion. But I'm not a doctor, so what do I know?" More than most of them, at least in the diagnosing part...if only she always had the right words and right knowledge. Hers wasn't a perfect science either, unfortunately.

“Maybe. But you have to admit, it's definitely only the more interesting people that would do something like that,” Axel pointed out. Interesting people and stupid people. Those were the only people who would do anything like that on a regular basis. But again, Axel wasn't counting himself among the ranks of stupid. He'd graduated from that.

He thought it was hilarious that she thought Juni could say her whole name. Axel knew it wasn't going to happen, and he could tell from her demeanor that she wasn't quite sure what to do with kids - much like Olivia (and he himself) had been, when she'd first met Juni. Big, bad paramedic didn't know how to deal with children. Good to know.

Juni didn't mind, though. She never did. She just did her best impression at a “hello, Emmy”, and stuck her hand out for a high five. “Leeeeet’s not do that, Juni. You don't want to get the paramedic sick,” Axel suggested, gently pushing the girl’s hand down.

“Not a doctor, but manage to use fancy terms. Sure,” he rolled his eyes. “You got any modern medicine that can fix the problem? It'd save me some waiting time.” Really. All he wanted was for her to get better.

"That's the beauty of it, I don't have to admit anything." A little smirk followed. Juni was a cute little girl, Harmony couldn't deny that even if she didn't know what to do with the pint-sized human. Harmony raised a hand to give the little girl a high five back (that she could handle) when Axel was suddenly denying them both. She snorted, amused at his concern.

Harmony shrugged at his question, "Like I said, I'm not a doctor. Just because I can use fancy words doesn't mean I can prescribe you medicine." She glanced between big human and little human again and felt a touch of pity for his plight. "I'm actually on my way home, I just clocked out actually. Totally off the record, I can take a quick look at her if you'd like?"

Axel shook his head, amused. But he didn’t mind. He didn’t need to hear it from her. It was nice to hear the words out loud, admittedly, but he took what he could get. He wasn’t going to push them; no, that might make them more hostile towards him and then they’d be less appreciative of his stunts and all. He couldn’t have that happening.

Not a doctor. Right. Well. She could still be of some use, though, since she obviously knew what was going on better than he did. All he knew was that there was probably something wrong with Juniper and he needed her fixed. That was literally the extent of his knowledge. But he was definitely more worried about it than Juniper was, which he thought was strange.

Axel was prepared to head back to the waiting room to spent the rest of his time anxiously awaiting the appointment with the doctor when Harmony mentioned that she was headed out. And then she offered to look Juni over. Axel perked up and gave her a genuine, excited smile. “You would? Really?” He asked, clearly relieved. “Thanks, Harmony!”

Why on Earth she was offering to do this, she didn't know. She was terrible with kids. Her coworker, whoever they were at the time, usually took over any handling of children. Apparently Harmony didn't know how to treat them like children, rather, she treated them like she treated everyone else. And supposedly how she treated everyone else wasn't all that great either. They should have seen her in society the first couple of months after Declan had saved her from the bear, then they wouldn't be complaining about how she was now.

She knew the likelihood of him suing her was minimal because she would know what was wrong with Juni. It wasn't like she would send them on their way saying all was well if it wasn't. "Not to sound all shady, but let's do it outside. The people around here don't exactly like the idea of a paramedic playing at doctor."

Ah. Rules. And expectations. There was a reason why Axel quit being a marine back then. Too many rules and expectations, and not enough room to do what needed to be done. If Harmony could help, he didn’t see a problem with her doing so. Still, he couldn’t help raising an eyebrow. Her? Shady? Now that would come as a surprise to him. Appearances could be deceiving, though. That, he could admit. Like he himself. He was a mercenary who… babysat his boss’s baby daughter. Yeah. That. Which amused him that Harmony thought that Juni was his kid. Maybe Wyatt would kill him for this later, but for now, he wasn’t going to say anything about who Juni’s real parent was.

But shady? Axel wasn’t worried. He could handle it now that he wasn’t drugged or anything. Besides, she was a paramedic. If Axel wasn’t convinced, there was a hospital rather close by. He gestured for Harmony to lead the way, since she probably knew her way around the hospital better than he did. If he was in the hospital, he was usually being confined to a hospital bed because he really wasn’t the most careful person.

He gestured for her to lead the way and, without further ado, that's exactly what she did. Right out the ER automatic doors and into the parking lot. She had the right tools to assess, but they were just for appearances. She took them over to the little garden and bench that was in the front and off to the side of the hospital ER entrance and sat down, motioning for him to do the same. "How old is your daughter?" Harmony asked.

The thought that Juni wasn't his daughter hadn't even entered her mind. It made logical sense that she would be. Further line of reasoning in regards to his status as single, married, widowed, or divorced never even entered her mind. Harmony didn't usually think like that unless given a reason to and thus far in her life, the only reason she had been given was by a man pursuing her. There had been a man a few years back that hadn't followed that pattern, but the day she had met him had seen a different Harmony. That day had been a hard day, for lack of a better word. Harmony placed a hand on Juni's chest, acting like she was doing something important. She was doing something important, of course, but she had to make it look like she was doing something more than just touching and thinking.

Axel followed her dutifully, sure that it wouldn’t hurt to be outside for a little while. After all, Juni always somehow managed to get him to take her to the park, and they spent a good amount of time outside, rather than inside. He knew that being outside seemed to make it worse, but at least then Harmony would have some actual evidence that something was wrong? Maybe? He didn’t really know how these things worked.

He sat down, making himself comfortable as he tended to do everywhere he went, holding Juni with little effort. He spent practically as much time with her as Wyatt did, now that he was temporarily kicked off the team, and knew how to deal with little humans. But thinking about ages? That took a little more effort. How old was Juni anyways? “Uh… maybe… two?” Axel answered as he shifted the girl so that Harmony could work with her. He’d have to ask Wyatt about that one. They hadn’t thrown a birthday party in ages. Deciding it was wise to shut up and let Harmony do her thing, Axel kept himself from talking, unless she asked him a question.

Harmony eyed him with raised eyebrows. He didn't know the age of his own daughter? She wasn't a parent or anything, but she had been a child once--crazy, she knew--and it usually was a good sign when parents remembered those kinds of things. "All righty then. Maybe two it is." It didn't take her long at all to sense the problem and an amused smile twitched onto her mouth. "Axel, do you have any experience with allergies?"

Axel shrugged. “I know she’s older than one?” He offered. But he definitely didn’t remember having a birthday party for her third one, so… somewhere between there totally counted as two. Besides, those were the tiny details. Axel was all for spoiling her all the time. He just didn’t let Wyatt know half of the things he did with her since he knew the man wouldn’t approve. Plus, he knew what he was doing when it came to driving fast, okay? He’d never hurt Juni.

Well, the smile probably meant something good, right? It wasn’t like she was screaming for medical attention immediately or anything. “What?” Axel scowled. Allergies? What did allergies have to- oh. Seriously? “Not personally… are you suggesting Juni has allergies?” Axel asked, slightly confused. It wasn’t that hard to grasp, but he was just having a hard time believing that Juni was suffering from a minor ailment such as allergies. She just seemed… too perfect to. “Seriously? Well, what am I supposed to do then?” Wyatt hadn’t mentioned anything about allergies!
