Pairing: Dad!Marc Spector x Mom!Reader, implied Steven Grant x Reader and Jake Lockley x Reader (not the main focus of the story)
OC: Marcy Spector
A/N: Time for some more Marcy Spector content that's a little fluffier, in honor of Father's Day! Back when she still thought her dad was the coolest guy ever.
Marc was set to go. He couldn't believe Khonshu called him to do this. Of course he said yes, but from what the god discussed with him about the trip, it sounded like he was going to miss another birthday. He was lucky to have married the patient, understanding soul that was you, but that didn't make things hurt less. If anything, he kinda wished you would show him some irrational anger towards him. Might make things easier.
He paused his packing to turn toward the entrance of the bedroom. His daughter, Marcy, stood there with her stuffed best friend, Kermit, in her arms. That toy pig hardly ever left her side.
"You leaving, Daddy?"
"Yeah baby," Marc sighed, crouching down so he was at eye level with the 4-year-old. "Khonshu needs me to help save the world."
"You really good at it," she said, smiling.
Marcy was aware, more or less, of not only his condition, but what he did as Moon Knight. You and Marc didn't go into too many details, of course. Really, she should just know her dad does what he needs to do to keep the world a safer place and sometimes needs Papa Steven and Papi Jake to help out with things.
"I do my best," he said to her, smiling back. "Can I count on you to take care of things while I'm gone?"
She gave a little salute and did her best to give a serious face she's seen him do many times. This had Marc give an emotional laugh.
"Take Kermit with you, Daddy," she suddenly suggested.
When she presented the stuffed pig to him, he didn't think his heart can get any fuller.
"Baby, are you sure?" He asked, knowing how much she loved Kermit more than any other toy she had.
"He'll keep you safe!" She reasoned. "And he's a good pillow."
His eyes teared up a little as he accepted him. He'd be sure to take good care of him.
"C'mere," he lifted her up and put her on the bed where he sat next to her. "I have something for you, too."
He turned to dig through the drawer of his nightstand until finding what he needed.
"I know your birthday is in a couple of days, but I want to give this to you now. Sorry it isn't wrapped."
He instructed her to hold out her hand where he placed a small silver bracelet. On the center of it was what appeared to be a giant eye. Its pupil a shiny gemstone Marcy couldn't help but admire.
"Pretty..." she softly stated as she examined it.
"You know how Khonshu helps Daddy be a superhero? Well he's not the only god around. Has Papa told you about Horus?"
"I think so..."
He chuckled. He couldn't blame her for not remembering every bit of information Steven throws at her.
"Like Khonshu, he helps control the sky," he explained, slipping the bracelet on her little wrist. "And legend has it, he can see everything through the sun and the moon. Because those are his eyes."
"Really cool," he lifted her hand to present the bracelet now on her. "He'll also be able to look after you through this eye. He'll watch over you and Mommy whenever I'm not here. Wear this, and you'll always be safe and feel like the strong warrior I know you are."
She nodded in understanding before scooting closer to wrap her arms around his neck. "Thank you, daddy. I wear it forever."
He kissed her temple and held her tight. Glancing up, he saw you witnessing everything from the doorway with your own watery smile. He smiled back and moved his eyes down to your wrist where you wore a bracelet identical to Marcy's.
He had reassured you beforehand that this didn't have anything to do with avatars. No way in hell was he going to involve you and especially your little girl in the business. The gods had simply wanted to find a way to thank Marc for putting a stop to Ammit as well as make up for not believing him and Khonshu about Harrow.
They didn't expect for him to request this. They accepted it, nevertheless, assuring him no harm would come to you or your daughter as long as you wore the bracelets. An extra form of protection as he did Khonshu's bidding.
