You opened your eyes as the dull morning light entered you room. You snuggled closer to the your pillow only to feel arms tightening around you. You lifted your head up to find a peaceful Lovino. You blushed as you realized the position you were in.
You rested your cheek on his chest and went back to sleep. You enjoyed the quiet moments like these with him.
You closed your eyes and listened to his deep breathing. You fell back into a deep sleep.
Eventually the peace and quiet was interrupted by the door swinging open.
"Are they asleep?"
"Ohh! Did somebody get lucky last night?"
"Aw! How cute!"
It was quiet when, "Hey-a guys. I-a made pasta!" This outburst caused Lovino to wake up from his sleep and glare at the intruders. Priya, Arthur, Feliciano, Francais and Gilbert.
You were still asleep so he couldn't be too loud.
"What the F*ck do you want?" he growled. he sent each one of them death glares.
"Just making sure you know that it's nine in the morning." Arthur said.
"Thanks. Now get the hell out."
"Aw! C'mon. So you taking the day off or what?" Gilbet asked.
Lovino let out a sigh. "Si. Now, before I loose my temper and wake up (Name), I suggest you leave." he reached for his gun and took it out of his holster. "You have the count of five." he smirked as they realized he was serious.
"Well. Look at the time. I have a manicure. Bye." Priya grabbed Arthur and pulled him away with Feliciano.
"I have somewhere awesome to be." Gilbert quickly walked out with Francais behind him.
He let out a irritated sigh. You stirred in his arms. You opened your eyes again to meet his beautiful green ones.
"Good Morning." you chirped.
"Buongiorno, tesoro. (good morning, sweetheart.)" he said back.
"Sorry about last night." you whispered.
"It's okay. It was my fault and I should have told you."
"What are we going to do today?" you asked.
"I have the day off so I'm taking you out." he got up and kissed your forehead. "Get ready and meet me out front."
"Okay." you leaned up and pressed your lips to his cheek. "See you soon." then you pushed him out of your room.
You took a shower and got ready. After much debate you wore jeans, blouse and simple flats. You decided let your hair out today. You looked around the hallway to find no one. You walked down the hallways to find a few people walking around. They either nodded at you or ignored you. You kept walking until you found the foyer.
You walked down the stairs as you saw Roma coming up.
"Good morning, bambina." he greeted.
"Good morning, grandfather."
"Looking for Lovino?"
"Yeah." you blushed slightly.
"He's outside. Enjoy your day." He gave you a hug and pushed to the door. "Bye." he closed the door behind you.
"I see you made it." Lovino was sitting on the hood of his car. He was wearing Vans, dark jeans, a plain red tee-shirt, and Sunglasses on his head. You were genuinely surprised as you saw him. Other than suits and ties, thats all you saw him wear but here he was, dressed up like a normal seventeen year old.
"So? Where we going?" you asked as you got in.
"The beach." he started up the engine.
"Your gonna drive slower, right?" you asked, your voice laced with worry.
"Maybe." he smirked as he pressed down on the accelerator.
After holding on to Lovino for dear life, you two finally ended up at the beaches of Sicily. It was empty so you and Lovino had parked the car and walked along the beach.
You did what regular couples would do at a beach. Build sand castles, play frisbee or admire the view. Only you and Lovino ended up having a splash fight.
"Don't even think about it, ragazza." Lovino held his hands up as you held a bucket of saltwater.
"No chance." You threw the water on him, drenching him.
"You shouldn't have done that." he said. He gave you a sexy smirk before you ran. He ran after you.
"C'mon. Take a joke." you called behind you. You didn't see him in sight so you stopped. Bad move because you felt two arms wrap around you.
"Got you." he whispered in your ear.
"Your in no position to say anything else." he nuzzled your neck playfully as your face went tomato red.
"Jerk." you muttered. He chuckled and let you go. He held your hand as he walked with you.
You two walked in silence through the silent beach. You two sat down on a log as you two looked at the calm waters.
"Lovino?" he looked at you. "Those files say where my father might be, right?" he nodded. "I was thinking about looking for him."
"What?!" he whipped his head around to look at you.
"Lovino. I have to know what happened to him."
"No. Not again. If Selene finds you, then-"
"I have to face her. I can't just hide like a coward, Lovino. But i have to know"
"Lovino. I'll be fine. I promi-"
"Please don't. If you promise again and you do get hurt, I will never forgive myself!"
"Lovino please." you begged.
"No." he pulled you to his chest. "I can't." he held you as if you were going to fade away. Just like when he found you.
"Trust me. Please. I don't want to leave you behind but i have to so look me in the eye and tell me you trust me enough to be careful." you pulled back and held his face in your hands.
After a few stressful minutes, he finally looked up. "Come back to me, okay?" he pressed his lips down to yours before you could answer. This kiss was desperate and feverish, full of longing and passion. He broke the kiss to pull you into his lap. "when do you want to go?"
"Tomorrow." you fought back tears as you thought about it.
"I'll take it that your leaving with your friends?" he asked.
"Then we should head back." he pulled you up as you two walked in silence back to the car. He opened the door then got in. He started the car as you rested your head against his shoulder. He held you hand with one hand as he drove with the other. For once you didn't feel scared at how fast he was driving.
"Don't be." he stopped the car and turned to you. "As long as you come back to me, I trust you." he leaned over and pecked your lips.
Time skip because I'm so lazy
You woke again to not dull morning light but to bright orange filling your eyes.
"Wake up. Your flight leaves soon." Lovino's voice filled your ear.
You opened your eyes to see his face. It would be a while if you woke up like this again.
"Okay." you got up and went into the bathroom. You changed into jeans and a tee shirt. You shrugged on a jacket as you grabbed your backpack.
Lovino took your hand and led you outside to the waiting car with all his friends. He let your hand go as you walked to the car. Before you could get in however, he spun you around and pressed a chaste kiss to your lips.
He let you go and said. "Ti amo." he shoved your fathers ring back into your hand.
Then got in the car as the door shut behind you. You met his eyes once as you sped away to the airport.
"Ti amo." he repeated again as he saw your vehicle disappear from view.
He felt a strong arm grip his shoulder. "She will come back, Lovino." Roma said.
"I know." the brunette smiled sadly as he turned to walk back into the house.
Another Time skip
The snow crunched underneath your boots as you walked with a bouquet of roses in your hand. You pushed aside the brush in your path until you came to your destination. You sat down in front of the marble grave and set down the roses. On it was:
(Mother's Name) (Maiden Name) Braginski.
'Mother, wife and sister. May the entire world grieve her loss. May the world never forget her. May she stay in our hearts.'
You stayed like that in the cold until somebody came up behind you.
"Your going to catch a cold." A voice that sounded to familiar said.
"What do you wat, Selene? If you want to fight, don't do by my mothers grave." you snarled.
"No. You know your fathers alive right?"
"Yes." you said cautiously.
"It's time to see him." she said.
"Wha-?!" you felt the sickly sweet smell of chloroform envelop your senses. How could you be so stupid?
"I'll see you soon, okay?" she flashed a wicked smile before the darkness finally got to you.
To many time skips!
"Wake up!" You felt the cold water drenching you. "That's better."
You shook off your grogginess and got up on unsteady legs.
"Welcome to your new home." A voice said. You turned to see Selene. "Your staying here until the wedding is over. You want your father, you get him but with a price. Goodbye, runt."
"Wait! What wedding?! What price!? Damnit! Answer me!" You pounded on the door as she closed it. You sank to you knees as you screamed.
What were you going to do now? How could you break your promise again?
"Damn you." you whispered as you felt hot tears fall down your face. How stupid could you be?
You got up and looked around the dark room. It was windowless and had two beds on opposite sides. One looked unkempt and rumpled while the other was bare and neat. You sat down on the neat bed and buried your face in your hands.
You stayed like that for a while until the door creaked open again and somebody was pushed in. The person landed face first with a thud. Upon closer inspection you saw it was a male with sandy-white hair. You grabbed his shoulders and flipped him over only to gasp back and scramble away.
The mans eyes opened to revel purple ones as he looked around the room with groggy eyes. His purple eyes looked at your (e/c) ones before saying, "(Mothers Name?)"
"Papa?" you got out.
"Is this another one of your tricks Selene?! Answer me?" he yelled into the open air. "You killed my wife and daughter and left me here for dead. What more can you take from me?" he clutched his head.
"Papa! It's me." you went to grab his large hand but he moved away quickly.
"No! Your not real. Just another figment, da. You'll leave me alone soon." he looked up with crazed purple eyes.
"I am real! See! I have the locket and your Ring!" you brought out the two objects.
"No! Your not real! My little sunflower died!" he wept. Is this your father? The once great Ivan reduced to a madman?
You grabbed his hand and slipped on the ring. He pulled his hand back and looked at the object. "It's real." he whispered. "I gave a matching locket to someone?" he asked fearfully.
"(Name) (Middle Name) (Maiden Name) Braginski. Your daughter."
"I remember that name. She was so cute. The last time I saw her was when I waved goodbye. She was just eight. She was wearing a blue dress and her hair on pigtails." a tear fell down his face. "She had a locket I had given her. Just like the one your wearing."
"Would you believe me if I said eight years had passed?"
"Your daughter was alive?"
"But she is? Trust me."
"Where is she? And how can I trust you? You look so much like her mother."
"Would you believe me if your daughter was in front of you?"
After a long and nerve racking pause, he looked at you again with his tearful purple eyes.
"Sunflower?" he asked. You nodded vigorously as tears welled in your eyes.
"Papa! I'm here!" he pulled you into a warm and comforting hug. He smelled like Vodka and Sunflowers, his signature smell ever since your were little.
"You look like your mother." he breathed out.
"No. I'm afraid not. She's gone."
"I miss her too, da."
"Da. I hoped a little too much."
"Hope isn't bad. It made me almost insane for eight years but it was worth it."
"Papa!" you sobbed into his jacket. "What happened to you?"
"Selene." he said as his purple aura surrounded him.
