Returning the sketchbook (RomanoXReader)The sunlight streamed across the plaza, the fountain set in the middle of the square throwing rainbows across the cobbled ground. Around the fountain were several wooden benches and it was on one of these that you were seated.
A plastic bag lay open beside you and every now and then you tossed part of the sandwich within it to the birds around you. A large flock of birds were circling around you by now and you alternated between throwing them your lunch and sketching them, which was proving to be difficult as the pigeons moved quickly.
Reaching next to you, you fumbled around for your sandwich, but you felt nothing but crumbs. You glanced at the bag and sighed when you found it was empty. You often got enraptured by birds, always wanting to see them fly and capture them in the act of doing so. But that meant that you had sacrificed many a sandwich to them.
With a disgruntled huff, you finished off your drawings of the birds, shutting it with a snap. The sudden sound made a couple of t

“—hate this kind of half-arsed work—“
Trembling, you stared at your quivering fingertips, something heavy in your throat preventing you form gulping. Did they really mean that? Did they really hate your work?
Before you could stop yourself, tears started leaking from your blurry eyes. “Ah, wh-what?” You questioned yourself as you tried desperately to dry your tears with the heels of your hands, but it was useless; they were leaking from your face and creating puddles on the surface of your desk.
Cursing inwardly, you made sure none of them landed on your computer and you pushed away from your desk, your chair rolling to the side of your bed. You dropped yourself on the covers and cuddled up to your largest pillow, burying your face

You were sitting on the bus, listening to your mp3 player and staring outside, but not at anything particular. Today was a beautiful winter day, which was something unusual for you to think -since you generally hated the cold- but today was also unusually warm and the sun was shining. You were happily and peacefully humming along to the song you were listening until-
“Hey, idiota, move over,” a familiar voice said as he poked your head.
Surprised, you quickly glanced at the person who invaded your daydreaming and pouted. It was Lovi, and he didn’t seem like he was going to sit anywhere else. You sighed and scooted over next to the window and hugged your backpack as he plopped down next to you.
When your thighs touched, you flinched and almost squeaked out loud but instead scooted over some more and buried your face into your backpack and prayed that he wouldn’t notice your reddening face.
Lovi and you were class mates for one of your college courses, and neighbo

"Romano's home~" you observed, nodding in unison with the coppery kitten that you were curled up on the sofa with. You were at the Vargas' house, waiting for your friend Feliciano to come back from a "date" with Ludwig. The man in question (Romano) stalked into the house, slamming the door with such force as to rattle the windows, muttering under his breath.
"Hi to you too," you murmured as Romano stomped straight into the kitchen and started banging pots and pans around.
"I hate that stupid potato jerk!" you heard him raging, most likely to himself but definitely loud enough for everyone and anyone in the area to hear. "That stupid German should just die! It's always 'Germany this, Germany that~!' and it makes me sick!" he screamed. There was a loud BONG as a particularly hefty pot dented the side of the fridge. You winced, and the greatly perturbed kitty snuggled deeper into your arms.

Lovino was growing even more impatient by the second. After being gone for two months in Italy, he wanted to see his best friend, _______!

While working the counter at your job like you so often did, you got a call on the phone for an order, which wasn't out of the ordinary either.
"Roma Pizza." You said.
"Ciao." Came a male Italian voice. "I'd like to place an order for pick up."
"Ok. Can I have the name please?"
"Romano Vargas." The man replied.
You typed the name into the computer. "Ok and what would you like, sir?" You asked.
"I'd like one plain pizza, your spaghetti and meatballs, and your Italian sub with everything on it." He told you.
You punched in the order as the man said it. "That'll be 27.29 and it'll be ready in..." You looked to see how many tickets there were already. None. Not surprising. It was the end of your shift. "Fifteen to twenty minutes." You told him.

There was a bit of a predicament at the moment. First things first, you had gone to visit Antonio with Lovino. With all of the travel you had just done and the harsh work you had been doing at your two jobs – one as a secretary for a big business and one as a graveyard shift guard for a bank – you were exhausted. Who wouldn’t be in that situation?
The next problem wasn’t quite so simple. Antonio had about five bedrooms. Normally it wouldn’t be a problem, but he also had his two friends Gilbert and Francis over and Feliciano had tagged along with you and Lovino. To count it out: One bedroom for Antonio, one for Lovino and Feliciano, one for Gilbert, one for Francis, and one for you.
Unfortunately, Antonio forgot he was having that many people over at once and had one of the bedrooms torn apart. There was a spare bed in one of the rooms, but it was so old that the springs of the mattress were broken and uncomfortable.

You lived in a small and cozy apartment a couple blocks away from Lovi. It wasn't much, but for you it was enough and you never complained. You were currently living alone and worked daytime as a waitress so you could say everything was going great in your life so far.
Today was Saturday, so that meant you had the day off.
Finally, after a full week of work!

"DAMMIT!" you screamed in dismay as tomato sauce splattered all over you and the kitchen counter. Romano walked up behind you, clicking his tongue in disapproval.
"Now now, _____, a ragazza shouldn't be using that kind of language," he chided, his voice rising and falling melodically with his strong Italian accent. Your face began to burn, and you stuttered as you tried to explain yourself.
"W-well, that's what I get f-for hanging around you too much," you retorted weakly. He chuckled, his golden eyes leering at you. After holding your gaze silently for a few moments, he turned to survey the bright red mess you had made.
