Mike waited until Jessica was inside of
"Bumble bee, you know who that is?" he nodded towards the desk. She shook her head and bit her lip again, Mike smiled at her. "Remember how I was telling you about Donna?"
Fiona's eyes widened in surprise before she looked at Donna; who had since dropped the eyebrow and was now aiming a smile right at his daughter like the perceptive person (or psychic) that she was.
"You bet it is," he told her and found himself more than a little surprised when Donna stood up, walked around her desk and knelt next to him. He looked at her and found that her smile was still in place but this time it was directed at him.
"You talk about me?" Donna inquired. He rubbed the back of his neck as Fiona cut into their conversation.
"Only good things," Fiona assured her. "Daddy says you're a goddess. You're really pretty. I like your hair."
Donna's lips quirked as she looked at Fiona.
"I like your hair too," Donna told her as she looked between her and Mike. "And if I'm a goddess you are cute as a button. You can call me Donna."
"I know that," Fiona giggled. "My name is Fiona."
"Well it is a pleasure to finally meet you," Donna told her, Mike looked at her, she shrugged. "I'm Donna, I know all. I just don't tell all the time."
"Wasn't my story to tell," Donna replied. "Now what finally convinced you to bring her in for everyone to coo over?"
"It rained at daycare," Fiona told her.
"Pipes burst this morning, Jenny can't watch her and there's no one else that I would-"
"Say no more," Donna shook her head before she looked at Fiona. "You keep your daddy in line today and if anyone gives you any trouble you just send them my way."
"Deal," Fiona nodded before she looked up at him. Mike smiled down at her even though he was nervous as all hell for what was about to come. "Daddy? What now?"
"We go in there," he pointed to the office where Harvey and Jessica were still watching them. "Ready bumble bee?"
She gave him a mega-watt smile and Mike took strength from that, as he had
for the past five years, and together they walked into
"I'll leave you three to talk," she leveled him with a look before she turned a smile onto his daughter. "I'll see you later Fiona."
"It was very nice to meet you Ms. Jessica," Fiona replied.
"And it's always a pleasure to meet a future attorney," Jessica
responded. "The world needs more women in law. Now I have a meeting to get
to but I'll be back down to see you and your father before you both leave
tonight. I want to make sure your visit was acceptable,
There was silence between them as
"Daddy," she mumbled and Mike knelt down to look her in the eye. "He looks scary."
"I know, but trust me bumble bee, his bark is far worse than his bite," Mike reassured her.
"You're looking at the best closer in the whole city," Mike told her. "That's daddy's boss."
Fiona's eyes sparked at the name and she turned that curiosity onto
"You're Harvey Specter?" she asked quietly, still shy, but more
than a little determined to get answers now.
"That's what I'm told," he replied cautiously.
"I thought you'd be nicer," Fiona wrinkled her nose. The look on
"What makes you think I'm not being nice?" he prodded.
"You stare. Daddy says it's not nice to do that. And a nice person
would introduce themselves," Fiona informed him.
"You could have taken the first step and said hello,"
"You're a stranger," she responded. "I'm not allowed to talk to them."
"You already started talking to me,"
"You have glass walls," she responded. "And daddy's right here. And Donna is outside."
"You like to argue don't you?"
"I'm going to be a lawyer like daddy," she responded.
"So that's a yes," Mike cut in as he stood up and took Fiona's
hand in his once more. "She's getting better at it the more she
"We need to talk,"
"I know but-"
Both men looked up to find Donna standing in the doorway eying the two of them before her gaze settled on Mike.
"I was going to get some coffee and I thought Fiona would like to come and get a little tour of the floor? Maybe get some juice or milk?"
The woman was a goddess.
"Daddy can I?" Fiona asked him quickly.
"If you promise to stay with Donna the whole time and listen to her," Mike responded.
"I'm five not dumb," she told him.
"I love you the most," he informed her.
"Love you the most!"
She rushed over to Donna after that and took the offered hand.
"Come on, we'll go to the Partners break room, I have it on good authority that they have cookies in there," Donna told her as they headed out into the hall, once more, closing the door behind them.
Mike sighed; already tired from the conversation they had yet to have. He
walked over to
"Remember the day we met and how I told you that I got knocked into a
different life?" Mike offered.
"Her name is Natalie," Mike replied. "We met when we were both
twenty, drunk and depressed. I had just gotten thrown out of school and she had
just moved to a
"And where is Natalie?"
"Not in the picture," Mike held a hand up at
"And where is she now?"
"Last time I heard from her she was taking off for a teaching
"I see, and Fiona?"
"She knows about her mother," Mike replied. "I don't see the point of hiding it from her. She's a smart kid and from what I can tell she handles it well. She may not have the most conventional family in the world but she has a support system. When she was born, Gram still lived with us; Jenny and Trevor were always there."
"You let Trevor near your child?"
"It was before he got out of hand," Mike countered as he watched
"I hear children are expensive,"
"You have no idea," he told him. "But we've always managed. I've always managed for us. You have to when you have a kid. They come first in everything. She's never been without."
The unspoken but I have lingered between them.
"Why didn't you tell me you had a daughter?"
Mike was surprised to find that
"I'm not ashamed of her," Mike replied quietly. "And to be
fair no one at the firm knew about her until today, except Donna, because I
swear the woman has magic powers," Mike tried to joke. It kind of worked
"And you really think that I'd do something like that?"
"Not you but if it had gotten out…I just didn't want to risk it
"You should have told me. Were you ever going to tell me?"
"Eventually," Mike replied. "When I was sure you were going to be a more permanent fixture in my life. I didn't want her to get attached only to lose someone. You know her now, she knows you. Now am I fired?"
"Of course not,"
"Everyone should be privy to witness my greatness,"
"So she says for the moment," he replied. "It used to change every other day but the lawyer thing has stuck ever since she got into one of my law books."
"For a five year old,"
"You wound me," Mike pouted. "I am plenty adorable."
"Keep telling yourself that rookie,"
"Is it alright that she's going to be here with me today?"
"We'll work with it,"
