Gene was a typical 3rd-grade Eevee. Had good grades, few friends and was by all appearances just your average kid...however, he did have one secret he liked baby things. Playing with building blocks, watching little kid shows, and when no one was looking sucked on a paci. He wouldn't dare tell a soul about it being...to him it'd be weird and would make him a prime target for bullying. One day he got home from school and his mom picked him up. "Have a nice day dear?" a Leafeon said as he got in. "Yep, our teacher took us on a field trip to the greenhouse it's almost as big as yours!" The Leafeon giggled at the comment. She was very much into gardening and had every kind of veggie and fruit you could want. They drove home and walked inside. "Hey Gene, how was your day?" a Flareon said happily looking up from his paper Gene smiled and said. "Great!!!!!" "He and his class checked out the Green House." "Oh, that sounds fun!" "I'm going upstairs to my room for a while." He said putting his bag down. "Okay sweetie, I'll call you when dinner is ready." Leafeon said. "Kay!" he said running upstairs and closed the door behind him. A smile crawled across his face as he took a key out of his bag and opened his nightstand drawer and pulled out a pacifier. "Hehe, finally I can be me." He said putting it in his mouth and sucked it happily like a baby. "Otay, time to pway." He said as his words were muffled by his paci. He giggled and put on "Blues Clues." He clapped his paws and got really into it and an hour later he heard his mom call.
"Honey, dinner is ready!" "Coming Mommy!" Gene put his paws over his mouth. D...did he really say that he thought to himself. "I..I mean coming, mom!" He locked his paci in his nightstand drawer and ran downstairs. His mom was serving spaghetti and meatballs his fave! "YAY" he cheered when he saw it. "You did a really good job on your last test, so I thought you earned it." his mother said sitting next to him. "It was really tough," he said digging in. "So, I was wondering if you wanted to go to the museum this weekend. They have this really cool exhibit about dinosaurs and just got a T-Rex completed." His dad asked taking a sip of water. "Sure, sounds fun!" He said doing the same. With that, each of them finished their dinner and Gene went upstairs and got ready for bed. However, his parents downstairs were talking. "Honey, our boy is really growing up..." His mother said leaning on him on the couch. "Yeah he is, but honey...do you really want another kid? We hardly got through the long nights with Gene..." He said looking at her. "I know...but...*sniff* it's hard watching him need me less and less." Flareon hugged her. "I know, it feels like he won't need me either one day..." Leafeon smiled. "Earlier when I called him to dinner he...called me "Mommy"...he corrected himself but...for a moment...it felt like...he was my little baby again." Flareon smiled too. "He is still going to be our son...no matter how old he gets. Come on, let's get some sleep." "Right behind you!" she said getting things turned off.
The next morning Gene slowly woke up and with a jolt realized he had his paci in his mouth! "Y..Yikes, I..I must have fallen asleep with it in my mouth! G...good thing mom or dad didn't come in and see me. Just then his face turned pale and he looked down and felt....wet..."O...Oh no!!!!! I..I wet the bed!?" He said in a panic. Leafeon knocked and came in. "Sweetie, are you...oh..." Gene couldn't be any redder "M..Mom, uh...I...I..." Leafeon walked up to him and patted his head. "Accidents happen sweetie. I'll run you a bath and we'll get you ready." She said in a loving voice. "S...sorry..." Gene said full of shame. He went and got in the bathroom...but just as he left his mom spotted something on his bed. "Huh, what's this?" She said out loud as she picked up the paci. "Hmm, where did you come from?" She looked over and saw his nightstand drawer open. "Hmm, maybe..." She thought to herself as she put it back in the drawer and closed it. With that, she went downstairs and got breakfast ready, but couldn't get that paci out of her mind...why did he have that? "Hey mom..." Gene said walking up to her bringing her back to reality. "O..oh hey dear, I got your sheets in the washer. Gene's ears fell in shame. "I..I'm so sorry!" she saw him on the verge of tears. "Sweetie, it's okay. I'm not mad honest. Might just be a bug going around. Just drink less water at night.” Gene nodded and got ready to go. With that Leafeon dropped him off and walked up to Flareon with a smile. “You seem, pretty happy all of a sudden. Get your new book in the mail?” she giggled at that. “Nope, better...I think I got a way to have a baby without actually having one.” Flareon looked up at her. “I'm listening, what's going on in that head of yours?” “Well, I was comforting Gene after his accident and found something odd.” “What'd you find?” he said now giving her his full attention. “I found a pacifier in his blankets.” “A paci, that is odd...could just be a phase though.” “Yeah, maybe you're right, heh I had one where I carried a teddy bear till I was like 13. However, I think it's adorable.” He blinked in surprise. 13!? Wow, no offense dear but that's kind of old to be carrying around a stuffed animal?” She turned beet red. “Y..Yeah, but I was a little timid that way...Mr...Fluff gave me comfort. ” Flareon couldn't help but chuckle. She finished her coffee. “Well, I need to get some things from town. See ya later honey.” “Wait, what is your idea?” He said confused. She stuck her tongue out at him playfully. “If everything works, you'll find out soon enough.” With that she got in the car and headed to the store and got some supplies, then picked up Gene from School. “Hey sweetie, there's my cute Eevee!” Gene was confused but just decided to go along with it. “Hey Mom, how was your day?” She smiled. “Great dear, just did some shopping and had kind of a quiet day. How was yours?” “Great, we played with a giant parachute in gym it was so much fun!” Leafeon giggled. “Sounds like you had quite the day.” with that the ride was pretty uneventful and soon enough they were home. Eevee went straight to his room and grabbed his paci which was laying on his bed...and then he saw a note next to it that made his blood run cold. With a shaking paw he picked it up. “Honey, I found this laying on your bed when I did your sheets this morning...I won't pry and I'm sure you have your reasons. I'm sorry if I wasn't supposed to find it...I told your dad but...he says it's nothing more then a phase and I only did because I honestly was so confused...I'm sorry if I hurt your trust by doing that...you are right to be mad...but I took the heat off you and on me by admitting I carried around a stuffed bear till I was 13 which made him laugh...seems that was much more interesting then you having a paci. Anyway, just make sure it stays clean.” Gene couldn't be redder if he tried....his mom knew! “O...Oh god...Stupid stupid stupid!” He said hitting his head with his paws. “How could you forget to put the paci away!?” He went downstairs where his mom was making dinner. Thankfully his dad was in the other room. “M..Mom, uh..c..can I um..t..talk to you?” His mom plated up dinner and with a smile walked to the table and sat in the chair where Gene joined her. “I take it it's about the you know what?” Gene covered his face nodding. “I'm such an idiot...” His mom petted his head. “Sweetie, there is nothing to be ashamed of...it's okay I understand.” Gene blushed. “Thanks for taking the heat though...that makes up for it...I just find it relaxing that's all...” She smiled. “I know the feeling, I used to carry my teddy everywhere brought me comfort now uh...there is one thing I didn't tell your dad...and um..something you should know...about that accident this morning...I um...think it wouldn't be a bad idea to have some protection tonight. Gene turned pale. “W...wait you mean...d...diapers!?” He said in a hushed shocked voice. Leafeon nodded. “Just for tonight, I want to be sure it was just a one time thing. It's not to punish you...just...I'm running low on laundry detergent.” Gene sighed. “Okay, j..just don't tell dad please...” “I won't, don't worry.” with that Eevee ate his dinner and went to his room with thoughts racing in his mind. In all honesty, he wanted to wear them since he started babying out with hi paci...but never had the courage to admit it...this could be his chance. He shook his head. “Get it together Gene you're not a baby, just a one time thing. Lets just get tonight over with and then I can finally get out of this stupid baby phase and move on with my life.”
That night after Flareon went to bed his mom took out the padding out of a closet and brought it up to Gene. His heart was racing as she put it on him and soon enough he was in it. “There we go, all set for beddy-bye.” Leafeon said in a cheerful voice and try as he might...a smile crawled on his face...they felt so comfy...better then he dreamed they would. “Hehe, is that a smile I see on your face?” she said looking at him. “N..No, j...just didn't expect them to be this soft...t..that's all!” she giggled. “Riiiiight, well good night sweetie.” she kissed his head and turned off the light. Soon enough Gene was alone with his thoughts. “...A...Am I really wearing this?” He asked looking under his covers in disbelief. “They are soft...I...I really feel like a baby again...well...if she already knows anyway...” He said as he took out his paci and for the first time put it in his mouth and let himself fall asleep with it...didn't take long even...in a matter of minutes he was out. The next morning he woke up and at first was happy being he felt dry...but his happiness vanished as soon as he looked at his soaked padding. “Oh no...not again...” he said with a sigh. “Looks like, I did it again...” Just then he felt his bladder nagging. “I better get to the bathroom before I make it.....worse...” He stopped mid-sentence as a thought went through his mind. Why not just go? He was already soaked, and it felt like it could take a bit more before it leaked. He checked his door to make sure his mom wasn't there and after making sure the coast was clear he closed his eyes and tried to relax...and for the first time in years he felt his bladder release and he gave a soft sigh of relief as he felt his padding grow warm. A dumb smile crawled on his face as he stood their and soaked his padding like a toddler. He really didn't want to admit it...but...he liked it. A few min later he heard his mom coming to his door which snapped him back to reality. “Sweetie, I'm coming in~!” She happily said as she opened the door and spotted him laying on his bed. “Morning honey, how'd you sleep?” Gene kept looking down. “I..I slept good but, uh....I kind of...” He pointed to his soaked padding. “I can see that, seems I made the right call with that padding.” Lets get you out of that and ready for the day. It's the weekend and you and Flareon are going to be heading to the museum later.” Leafeon took his padding off and he wanted to say something...but kept biting his tongue out of fear. “There we go, all ready.” she turned to leave. Gene felt the pressure grow on him...for some reason he wanted to say it...he wanted to be treated as a baby again...but something was muting him...almost like someone took a strip of duct tape over his mouth. Finally he managed to break through it. “Mommy wait!” he said in a deep blush. Leafeon was surprised by that and she ran up to him. “Sweetie what's wrong?” Gene started crying. “I...I don't know, I...I think something is wrong with me...I...I f...feel like I want to be a baby again...I...I think I'm sick, and am nothing more then a freak!” He said crying into her fur. She was just stunned by this and could only hug him in comfort...being she didn't know what to even say to him. Finally after a good 2 min...she found her voice. “Sweetie...there is nothing wrong with you...I love you no matter what...if you want to be treated as a baby there is nothing to be ashamed of...if you love something and it isn't hurting anyone...then why shouldn't you enjoy it?” she then surprised him by holding him. “Be honest, I wanted a baby for a long time...you are growing up so fast...but...you dad doesn't think he has the time or money for another kid...and...I think I have a solution to both our problems.” “Y...You do?” He said with a sniffle. She nodded. Gene smiled as if knowing it was going to be okay. She put him on the floor and to his surprise put him in another diaper. “Mommy, I...I don't understand...why are you putting me in another one? I just woke up...” she put her paw on his mouth silencing him. She then walked out of the room leaving him confused. Afterwards she explained her plan...and what happened to Flareon. “I see...that's quite the plan you got there...” “I think it will be for the best, he'll have the love and attention he wants...and it will be less stress on us.” She said cuddling up to him. Just then Gene walked in. “M..Mommy, uh...” Leafeon smiled. “Might as well tell him.” She walked up to him. “Sweetie, your father and I were talking and...remember how I said I had an idea that would help us both?” Gene nodded. “Well...the idea is.....how about....you be our baby again?” Gene was stunned by what he just heard. “W...what?” She nodded. “You'd be treated as one from now on...for as long as you want.” However, you'd be treated as one all the time...and that means...even at school...” Gene thought for a min...that would mean being padded at school...his biggest fear...”B...but won't people make fun of me?” He asked in fear. “I'll say you have a medical condition that says you need them. That would get the teachers on your side. Well, what do you say?” Gene tried to think of the best words to say it...but couldn't think of any...just then however, he felt his dinner ready to make its exit...and came up with the best answer. So with a smile on his face he let his tail flag and for the first time in years filled his padding making it sag between his back legs. “Ahhhhh” He sighed in relief. His dad could only chuckle. “I'll take that as a yes.” Gene nodded. “I've wanted this for so long...but was always to scared to even say anything.” His mother hugged him. “Everything will be okay sweetie. Now, how about we get you changed?” Gene smiled. “Kay Mommy!” He said with cheer in his voice knowing everything he secretly wanted was coming true.
