The first is from a tumblr anon: Castle does something which results in Beckett getting injured. Castle feels horrible even if he couldn’t have known it would happen, and the second is from an anon on ff.net: Castle and Beckett fall in the lake in Central park.
"Okay, thank you Alexis. See you soon," Castle hangs up the phone and sets it beside him. "She’s on her way now," he tells Kate as he glances at the plastic bag holding their wet clothes by the foot of the bed.
When they’d arrived at the hospital Kate had been given a gown to wear and the staff had given Castle a pair of paper scrubs so he could also get out of his wet clothes. They said they could give Kate a pair too when they left, but Castle had called Alexis and asked her if she had time to go by the loft and get them some of their own clothes to wear home.
"I’m so sorry," he sighs.
"Castle, look at me," Kate squeezes his hand gently. "Stop blaming yourself. It wasn’t your fault."
"It was my idea to go fishing in Central Park, and I was the one who freaked out when the fish got loose in the boat and so it was my fault the boat tipped over."
"It was an accident, Castle," she rubs her thumb over the back of his hand.
"Accident or not, you still hit your head when you fell out."
Kate had just wanted to go home, but after they’d managed to get back to shore she’d thrown up. Since she had a head injury and was getting sick, Castle refused to drive her anywhere but the hospital.
"Rick," she says softly, "it wasn’t your fault," she repeats. "Look, I feel fine, and soon the doctor will come back and tell us that I’m fine, and then we’ll go home."
Before Castle can reply the door opens and the doctor steps inside, as if on cue.
"Hey there," he smiles at the couple, "I have some good news for you, Mr. and Mrs. Castle. There are no signs of a concussion, so that bump on your head is just superficial."
"Then why did she throw up?" Castle asks worriedly.
"Well, pregnancy really changes things in your body," he looks at Kate. "The trauma of the fall could have caused your body to feel overwhelmed and made you nauseous."
"Wait," Kate looks at Castle then back at the doctor, "I’m pregnant?"
"You didn’t know?"
"No, we didn’t," Castle answers. "You’re certain she’s pregnant?"
"The blood work is conclusive," he nods. "Your wife is definitely pregnant. Look, everything checks out, so I’ll go get the release paperwork going and give you two a few moments to yourselves, since you obviously have some things to talk about."
"Thank you, Dr. Gibbons," Castle stands up and shakes his hand.
"Yes," Kate adds. "Thank you."
"Of course," he smiles again before he heads back out the door.
"Castle," Kate says as soon as they’re alone, "we’re having a baby." Castle doesn’t say anything and her face falls. "Are you…are you not happy?"
"Oh, honey," he leans over and kisses her hard and fast. "I’m ecstatic," he gives her a huge, dopey grin. "I’m just surprised, that’s all. What about you?"
"I’m surprised too, but I’m overjoyed."
"We’re having a baby," he echoes her.
"Yes we are."
Castle starts to lean in for another kiss, but he pauses halfway. “That means I made you and our unborn child fall into the lake.”
Kate reaches up and grabs the back of his neck. “Shut up and kiss me,” she demands with a smile as she pulls down.
