A/N: hey people!
This is a de-anon from the kink meme. A FACE family crossover with The Nanny.
Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Antonio winched as he heard his boss Arthur Kirkland scream unintelligible words once more before the house shook with the slamming of a door. Even though he couldn't hear it he was sure that Arthur was placing the locks in place.
When he heard Arthur's office door slam shut Antonio reached for the bottle of whiskey in the back of the fridge and placed it on a tray along with a glass and quickly went up the stairs.
He knocked on the door.
"What?" Arthur snapped.
"It's me sir." Antonio said.
"Come in, come in."
Antonio quickly entered the office and placed the tray in front of Arthur. He started in slight surprise before he immediately opened the bottle. He disregarded the glass and chooses instead to drink straight from the bottle.
"Thank you Antonio." he said.
"It is my pleasure sir." Antonio said. "Trouble with the children again?"
At that moment he heard the youngest of the family, Peter, running down the hallway and bouncing what he was sure was a basketball. As he passed his father's office he threw the basketball at the door a few times as hard as he was able to. Thus resulting in a crack appearing on the door.
Arthur immediately stood up and stomped to the door. When he pulled it open with his mouth open ready to yell at the child that entire he received was a basketball thrown at the stomach before Peter ran away.
Antonio walked to Arthur and helped him stand. Arthur was wheezing slightly as he took his seat once more behind his desk.
"I am at my wits end with these children Antonio." Arthur said massaging his stomach. "Alfred is impossible and Peter is nothing more than a brat."
Antonio waited for a moment for Arthur to continue and when he didn't he pressed "And Matthew sir?"
Arthur looked at him blankly. "Who?"
"Matthew sir. Your second son."
"Oh right, right! Matthew. Almost forgot about him."
"Sir. May I make a suggestion?" Antonio asked.
"I believe at this rate I will take anything." Arthur said.
"Maybe someone from the outside can help the children." Antonio suggested.
"Like what a governess?"
Antonio smiled slightly. "Wrong century sir."
"A nanny then?"
Antonio nodded. "And I know someone that might be able to help you. I think they are the right person."
Arthur rubbed the bridge of his son absentmindly lost in thought. "I suppose I can give this person a chance then. Arrange a meeting will you?"
Antonio nodded. "Of course sir."
Arthur winched when the sound of a vase being thrown to the floor rang throughout the house. "And soon. Please."
Francis sighed as he turned the page in the magazine in his hands. He tried to peer at the mirror at the side.
"Are you done yet?" he asked.
Elizaveta tugged on his hair. "Not yet. Now stay still."
"I honestly don't feel comfortable with you doing whatever you wish with my hair."
"Shush before I cut it all off."
Francis fell silent and tried to concentrate on the magazine once more.
The phone rang suddenly. Elizaveta dropped her utensils and walked to the phone.
"Hello?" she said into the phone. Francis could barely make out a voice on the other end.
"No this is his mother." she said. She held the phone out to him. "It's for you."
"Hello?" Francis said into the phone.
"Francis it's me." Antonio said.
Francis smiled as he stood. "Thank goodness you called."
"My mother is using me as an experiment."
He could almost feel Antonio's shudder. "I remember when she did that, she could become insane."
Francis nodded. "And what do I owe the pleasure to this phone call?"
"You have experience with children right?" Antonio asked.
Francis nodded again even though Antonio couldn't see him. "Yes I do."
"What about teenagers?"
"…some. Where is this going exactly?"
He could hear Antonio's smile. "Well the guy I work for has three children."
"I already do not like where this is going."
"And he needs help with them." Antonio continued as if he didn't hear Francis.
"Antonio you are insane if you think I am going to agree." Francis said.
"He has two teenagers and one kid. All three are boys."
"Antonio I just said that I don't agree."
"The pay is really good and you get full coverage and board. All the insurance you can possibly want and weekends off."
"Antonio are you listening to a single word that I am saying?"
"The boss himself can be slightly…weird at moments but overall he is a good guy."
"Antonio stop ignoring me."
"His wife had died some time ago and I think that's one of the main reasons for the children behaving the way that they are. Also I think the fact that Arthur is really protective and controlling."
"Antonio I swear to whatever you hold dear I am going to kill you if you do not listen to me."
"Oh! And the bosses assistance Lovino is rather…harsh and mean and really flirty to Arthur and kinda cute but…yeah."
"Antonio stop or else I will hang up."
"So will you do it?"
Francis rolled his eyes. "What part of stop do you not understand?"
"Shouldn't I be asking you that?"
Francis shook his head in amusement. "That is not the point. The point is that I will not do it."
"Please Francis." Antonio said softly. Francis started slightly; he hadn't heard that pleading tone of voice from Antonio in years. Ever since they were children and he had wished to get out of trouble. "These children, I love them dearly and forgive me for saying this, are fucked up. They need help from someone."
Francis hesitated. "How bad can it really be?"
"Arthur puts locks on the Alfred's door to ensure that he stays inside."
Francis froze. "You must be kidding me."
"I wish I was and that is the beginning. Please Francis I think you're the one to help here the most."
Francis sighed. "How is it that you are always able to convince me to do stuff that I do not wish to do?"
Antonio's voice brightened. "So you'll do it?"
Francis robbed his eyes and asked "When and where?"
"Come over tomorrow at two for the interview. I'll put in a good word for you."
Francis sighed. "Yes, yes. See you tomorrow."
"See you." Antonio said before hanging up.
Francis placed the phone back in its place. Elizaveta looked up at him. "What did Antonio want?"
"Apparently I now have an interview to watch over children tomorrow."
"You're going to be a nanny?" Elizaveta asked.
Francis nodded as he walked to the mirror. "Apparently so."
"How bad are the kids that they need you?" Elizaveta asked herself.
"Maman! What did you do to my hair!" Francis yelled when he saw his reflection.
"I do hope that this friend of yours is up to the job." Arthur said.
Antonio smiled. "Do not worry sir, I am sure of it."
They both heard the doorbell ring.
"That must be them." Antonio said running off. Arthur heard him opening the door and talk softly with the person.
To his surprise Antonio brought a man in. Arthur felt his eyes narrow and his blood pressure start to rise.
"Hello there sir, my name is Francis Bonnefoy." the man said holding out a hand.
"I said get out." Arthur snapped. He turned to Antonio. "What the hell is this bringing in a Frenchman here? Is this some kind of a joke?"
Antonio stepped forward. "Please sir I believe he can help."
"Help?" Arthur repeated. "Help with what? Turning my sons from good men into a bunch of whores with horrible manners and no respect? "
"I don't think I would have to do that seeing as you covered practically everything yourself." Francis said.
"Get out." Arthur told to Francis. "I have no desire to waste my time anymore."
At that moment three things happened. The first was the sound of something breaking, the second was a teenagers yelling through the walls "Let me out old man!" And the third was music started to blast through the walls. Francis saw the pictures on the wall start to vibrate before they fell to the ground.
He promptly turned and began the walk back to the front door.
"Francis wait!" he heard Antonio call after him. Francis started to walk faster.
Antonio caught up with him and grabbed his arm. "Please wait a minute."
"You heard the man." Francis said. "He does not want me to look after his children."
"He didn't mean that." Antonio said. "Please just wait a minute."
The both of them could hear Arthur yelling at the children. Eventually the music and the yell stopped.
Arthur came down the stairs to them.
"I suppose I can give you one, and only one, chance." he grumbled.
Francis looked at Antonio who smiled encouragingly. He forced a smile on his face.
"Well then I am thrilled." Francis said. "May I meet the children?"
I hope you guys enjoyed this.
