It's a bright and cheery day in Moonlight Falls (oxymoron, right?), and there's still a couple of hours until Rufus Overlord's carpool arrived. He has recently been promoted to Cutpurse, which is much better for his dignity than a Decoy, but he hasn't reached overlord status just yet.
Rufus has been feeling particularly neurotic today. He's been talking about conspiracies with his wife, Bambi, particularly about the driver of the ice cream truck.
"Now, now, dear, let's not get paranoid."
"They don't even sell Choco-Tacos. If THAT doesn't indicate a conspiracy, I don't know what does."
With her husband home for a couple more hours, Bambi decides that it's time to have the baby talk. Rufus shuts her down every time she brings it up, but oh, she just wants nothing more than to cuddle a little bundle of joy in her arms. Plus, she knows her time is short. She's only got about fifteen more fertile days left.
Rufus: "You actually think?"
Bambi: "...From time to time, I actually do, Rufus. But...there's only so much time left and...honey, I think we should have a baby. I mean, how will you be able to keep your overlord legacy going if you don't have any heirs?"
Rufus: "I'm an overlord. I plan on living forever."
Bambi: "Well...if worse came to worst, you need an heir to carry on your line. Do you think we could try? I mean, I'm going to be at home. Clearly I'm not going to run out and become an international super spy or anything."
Rufus: "....I see your point. I guess we can try for a baby."
And suddenly Bambi's visions and dreams erupt in a flash of glory, with singing and dancing and heavenly music playing. Her precious husband finally said yes. She imagines how romantic their baby-making will be. She imagines how fond their relationship will grow with a baby in the house. She envisions something like this...
But he agreed to do it. So he walks straight to the shower and yells, "You coming?" Not exactly the romantic endeavor that Bambi was hoping for, but she'll take it.
It just takes one try. Later that night Bambi feels a bit sick and she's sure it's not from the autumn salad she made for dinner. (Her husband meanwhile is coming up with genius inventions to take over the world while he sleeps.)
The confirmation comes in the morning.
Evening comes around and Rufus gets back from work, having been promoted to a Thug ("I get to kill people now, honey!"), but immediately heads out for the gym. He needs to keep up his buff physique to out-thug the other thugs, after all. So Bambi decides to use the time he's away to catch up on her own requirements as a Desk Jockey. She'll take some time off for this pregnancy, but she hopes to get to work right away and she'll need to develop a relationship with her partner for that. So she invites her over. She seems to be a nice woman.
