You squealed in delight as your Danish father threw you up in the air, catching you in his strong arms each time he tossed you to the heavens. After hugging you tightly, he spun you in a circle, the air making you giddy.
Mathias fell to the grass of the park, his spinning having made himself dizzy as well. You lay on his chest, snuggling up to him as nuzzled your face with his.
Being the following duckling you were, when you saw your father look up at the sky you couldn’t help but copy him and gaze at the blue sky.
You pointed at the sky, easily identifying the blue of the heavens as your father’s eye colour. Clapping, you laughed as you placed your dimpled hands on his eyes. He exaggerated his blinking, pretending he’d been blinded temporarily.
Pulling your hands back, he looked at you, picking you up and blowing air onto your stomach. You exploded into a fit of giggling laughter, struggling against your father. He merely grinned, but stopped as you’d kicked his shoulder rather harshly.
Smiling or rather grinning over the pain, he planted several kisses, alternating each time between your cheeks. “You’re my awesome, brilliant, beautiful little girl, you know that?” He said, poking your nose with his large finger.
You shook your head at him. Tilting his head he frowned, wondering if you were at that ‘no’-stage already.
Using your hands, you did your best to hold your hair up, mimicking his style. “Now I am!”
Mathias wiped away a tear, pulling you close to his chest. "I've taught you well."
