~^ ) ^~ (-squeals- random Russia face xD)
"Alfred!" I scurry down the steps after him and bend down near him.
Students surrounded us.
"Is he dead?"
"Idiot! He just blacked out!"
"Will he be okay?" There was whispering around the two boys, Alfred and Arthur.
"Let me through! What happened here?!" Mrs. Rogers kneels down beside me and an unconscious Alfred.
"He fell down the staircase..." Someone said. All I did was lift him up to a sitting position against me. I was still trying to lift him up. Alfred was heavy from his muscles, since he played football till junior year... and me? Well all I even did as an after school activity was a book club or two.
Mrs. Rogers picked up Alfred like it was a piece of cake. She held him gently; he was picked up bridal style. Mrs. Rogers looked at me. "You should gather both your stuff I'll bring him to the nurses." I just nod and stand up watching her walk away as some of the other teachers offer help, but she just denies and opens the door with her feet. Good thing Mrs. Rogers lets her class out early for lunch... (Obviously so she can get to lunch sooner too) Otherwise it would have taken longer to get Alfred to the nurses.
I turn around and start picking up my notes, and pencils. Alfred's notebook, my folder. I jumped in surprise as papers were shoved in my face.
"Here." Yao handed me some more notes and Ivan also gave me my notebook.
"Thanks..." I grab the stuff and leave to put it away to go see if Alfred was OK.
I walked swiftly to the nurse's office. Before I head in I ran into Mrs. Rogers.
"Oh! Arthur! Alfred's alright. He's still unconscious right now so can you go get something to eat then go see him? Maybe even bring him something when he wakes. Well I'm gonna get some lunch and go blog... Toodles!" Mrs. Rogers left before I could say anything.
"I suppose I could get lunch for him and I…" I mutter and turn around to the lunch room. I walked down the hallway hands in my pockets.
When I got in line I got myself a bagel and both of us some water. I grabbed Alfred three burgers and a tray a fries. He eats so much it's not even funny.
Once I bought the food and politely thanked the cook I walked to the nurses again, but with the food this time.
When I walked into the office no one acknowledged me, so I took that as an invitation to welcome myself by going in to the nurse's office. The nurse was there checking on a sick student. I placed the food on the table next to Alfred's head and sat down by the unconscious Alfred and waited for the nurse. The kid was sent out of the room and the nurse turned to me.
"Dear, you are a friend of his correct?" The nurse smiled a sickly sweet smile at me. I just shivered and nodded.
"Well, he has a concussion; do you know his parent's number deary? I would like to call in to inform them about their son's condition." I nod again and wrote down Alfred's mother's cell and her name on a piece of paper. The nurse nodded a thank you and left us alone with no one else in the room.
"Oh god... My head..." I immediately turn to Alfred as he groans bringing a hand to his head.
"Alfred! Are you feeling ok?" I move next to him looking down at him worriedly. He blinked slowly and grinned.
"Just peachy." his grin doesn't die down. "Except this headache is killing me."
I roll my eyes and chuckle.
"Well you did get a concussion… For saving me..." I turn away blushing. I hit myself internally for doing so. "Thank you."
Alfred took my hand and squeezed it, then let go.
"Well what are heroes for? Now, what is it you got for me over here?" Alfred sat up, not too fast, and grabbed the tray with the food on it.
"Iggy! You got me my favorite!" Alfred exclaimed loudly as he shoved a burger in his mouth.
"Don't call me that… and yes, I did." I said nodding my head. I grabbed my bagel and opened it. Before anything else was said the nurse came back inside the room.
"Alfred? You feeling well?" she moved next to him across the bed from me.
"Yea I'm fine." He slowed his eating down.
"I just called your mother and she's coming to pick you up here in about 20 minutes... That's fine with you?" The nurse nodded assuming he'd be all in for it. I sigh internally, it would be boring the rest of the day and how would we hang out after school since he's my ride to his place?
"No! I don't want to go!" Alfred whined surprising both me and the nurse.
"Are you sure? You should get some rest and not do much for the rest of the day." The nurse asked concerned.
"I'll be fine-" I interrupted Alfred.
"Alfred... You should go home and take it easy. Your health is important." I said as Alfred hung his head low.
"..Fine..." Alfred muttered as the nurse smiled and walked out of the room. I turned to Alfred nibbling on my bagel.
"Why so reluctant to go?"
"I want to hang out with you later today, and that won't happen endless you come home with me..." Alfred groaned out upset. "I have this new horror movie I wanted to watch with you and mom was going to make your favorite cookies tonight." Alfred pouted sticking his lower lip out. I frown. I hate saying no to Alfred and seriously I wanted to hang out with him too.
"We'll save it for another night... And tell your mum to save the cookies for that time, she makes good cookies." I add as Alfred sighs and nods.
"I suppose... Then we have to play some Black Oops zombies after the movie since you owe me!" Alfred pouted.
"Ugh, fine." I try to act like I hated the idea but a grin split from my lips as I laugh for no reason. Alfred chuckles a bit. We eat the rest of our lunch in a comfortable silence. I throw away the wrappers of our food just as Mrs. Jones walks in. She was a short woman with a nice figure, with short bright blonde hair and violet eyes. She wore glasses just like her two sons.
"Alfie! Are you OK?" She runs up to her son taking his cheeks in her hands and kisses his forehead as Alfred pushes away.
"I'm fine mom!" He moved away from his mother. I just laugh as Alfred sticks his tongue out at me.
When Mrs. Jones was finished with her son she turned to me and hugged me tight. I return it as she gushed out.
"When the nurse called me and explained what happened and how Alfred fell down the stairs saving you I dropped everything at work to see if you're both ok!" She kissed my cheek and hugged me tighter. "You're like my third child Arthur, I love you both dearly! If anything happened… Gosh... Being a mother..." she chuckled. I was confused on the fact Mrs. Jones knows what happened... Mrs. Rogers must've told the nurse what happened.
"We're fine Emily..." I let Mrs. Jones hug me one more time. She smiles at me and then to her son.
"I'm so proud of you for saving a friend and you for sticking with him. Must take up most of your energy." Mrs. Jones laughs as I smile. Alfred just whines as I nod.
"He does, definitely." I laugh with Mrs. Jones.
'But it's always worth it.' I think to myself as Mrs. Jones smiled and turned facing both of us.
"Now Alfred, you should get your stuff so we can leave. I'll be waiting in the car for you." Mrs. Jones nods and hugs me one more time and leaves as Alfred stands up and stretches.
"Let's go Iggy! To our lockers! To get my stuff!" Alfred walked out the nurse's office and the office as I catch up to him.
"Alfred... Just lean on me just in case you're feeling not able to walk well." I offered. I had no idea what side effects on concussions were, maybe walking was a difficulty? Makes sense.
Alfred shook his head. "Nah, it's not that bad. Thanks though."
We walked into the senior's locker bay and went to our lockers. It was just in time for Science, and I grabbed my textbook and notebook.
Alfred slung his backpack over his shoulder and then asked me, "Hey take notes in Health and Science for me. Also kick ass in gym!" Alfred laughed as I groaned.
"I'll defiantly take notes but I don't thing kicking arse in gym qualifies well for me..." I turned to Alfred.
"I bet you will." Alfred leans in for a hug which I lean to give him one. We hug quickly patting our backs.
"See you later." Alfred meets my gaze and we stare for some while then I break it moving to get to science class.
"See you..." I wave and leave. Ugh I hate science.
The rest of the day passed easily, science was easy, just a test. Health was about the body system and I took notes for Alfred and me, even if he wouldn't use them. He always would invite me to sleep over, telling our parents we're studying while really I'm helping him last minute cram. It can be fun sometimes. In gym was football, or what most Americans call 'soccer'. In study hall I brought a book because I finished my homework. This was the last class of the day, and today Mrs. Rogers was our teacher watching over us.
I walk into the room and pick a table with no one at and lay my stuff around the table and start to read my book, Alice in Wonderland and before I knew it I fell asleep.
~Arthur's dream no one's POV~
Little Arthur frowned up his father. At the first day of kindergarten Arthur was here and ready but he really didn't want to go. He tugged on his father's pant leg and all Mr. Kirkland did was pat Arthur's head and urged him on to the other children. So far there were only seven kids playing.
Mr. Kirkland kneeled down to Arthur's height.
"Arthur, now you be good. You can do that right? I'll be back a few hours after lunch. How's that?" He smiled at his son who just nodded.
"Yes father." They both nodded and Mr. Kirkland left leaving little Arthur all alone. The teacher herded all the kids together in one point of the room, letting them introduce themselves to each other.
Arthur looked around and met gaze with two blonde boys talking and another two watching.
One of the two blondes noticed little Arthur and brought everyone to him.
"Who are you?" He questioned. "This is Gilbert and Antonio. I'm Francis and this doofus is Alfred." Francis said with a French accent.
"Hey I'm not a doofus!" Alfred said back as Gilbert just laughed.
Antonio smiled and put his arm around Francis.
"Well? Tell us will you?" Antonio sounded like he spoke Spanish.
"I'm Arthur." Arthur said as bravely as he could muster.
Before anyone could say anything else the teacher called all the kids to sit in a circle and do what little kids do in kindergarten.
"Alright students, we're going to share our names and one thing of what we like. Let's start with you." She pats Antonio who nods.
"I'm Antonio and I like churros."
Alfred was next.
"I'm Alfred and I like being a hero!"
"I'm Arthur and I like watching Doctor Who." Arthur went.
The kids soon all shared their name and what they liked and the teacher decided what they were to do next.
"Alright we're going outside! So let's line up alphabetical order!" The teacher lines all the kids up. Once all the kids were lined up Arthur noticed Alfred was in front of him. The loud kid. He groaned.
"Hey! Iggy! What's Doctor Who?" Alfred asked as the teacher led everyone outside.
"I'm Arthur not Iggy!" Little Arthur blushed as Alfred giggled.
"Well what's Doctor Who?"
"It's a TV show on BBC. It's about a doctor who saves everyone and travels through space and time because he's a time lord in a Tardis!" Arthur said as Alfred nodded listening.
"Really? I've never seen it! That reminds me of the superhero movies I watch! Have you seen any superhero movies before?" Mini Alfred asked as Arthur shook his head.
"What! They're the best! You should come and play at my house and watch superman with me!" Alfred said loudly as Arthur smiled a bit.
"Only if you watch Doctor Who with me!"
"Agreed!" Alfred nodded.
~ARTHUR'S POV BACK~
I jolted awake.
"Hey, Arthur? You there? Schools ending." Mrs. Rogers poked me on the cheek.
"Huh? What?" I rubbed my eyes as Mrs. Rovers smiled.
"Really? Thanks for waking me." I yawn and stretch. I turn my head to face Alfred and tell him about my dream but I just frown.
"What's the matter Arthur?" Mrs. Rovers was across the room now already starting to pack up and go home or whatever she's planning to do. (A/N: HEHE SOMETHING GOOOD!)
"Nothing... Just forgot that Alfred wasn't here... Well see ya." I walked out of the class room getting myself to my locker.
"Ugh..." I groaned and packed up some stuff, and checked the time. I could walk home or run to see if I can catch a bus. I'll just walk.
I slowly exit the building hands in my pockets. But as soon as I get outside I see a familiar Tardis blue car.
"Alfred..?" I walk up to the car and see Alfred in the driver's seat.
He grins and waves.
I just stand there and blink. Slowly I feel a grin overtake my face as I open the front seat door.
"Aren't you supposed to be resting?" I tried to scold Alfred but the grin gave it away.
"Yea but I went anyways. Mother doesn't know yet. I also got some tea I thought you'd like!" Alfred motions to the back seat as he starts the car up and drives out of the parking lot.
I turn and look inside the bag, there was actually a good tea in there.
"You remembered that my favorite flavor was earl grey?" I asked smiling at him.
He smiled back.
"Yea that in that's actually one of my favorite teas also." He said as we drove into a different part of town.
"Alright so this horror movie I got, it's called I Am Legend. It's old yea but I heard it was good so we can watch that then some Doctor Who with David Tennant!"
"Ah, sounds good. You know what that reminds me of?" I turn to look at Alfred.
"Hmm?" Alfred glanced at me and I took that to continue.
"I fell asleep in study hall-" I was interrupted.
"You fell asleep! Really! That's so unlike you Arthur! Explains how you were late for the bus." Alfred laughed out.
"Yes now, the point is; when I was asleep I had I dream on the first day of kindergarten. Remember that? On how are friendship was started by Doctor Who?" I say. Alfred blinked. He thought for a second then laughed.
"You're right! Oh my gosh! Thank goodness that I didn't know anything about British TV shows!" Alfred smiles at me. "It'd be lost without you! Dude! You're like my best friend!"
I turn my head to hide my blush.
"Git... Don't say things like that..." I mutter.
"But it's true. Alright we're here!" Alfred parked his car, and got out grabbing the tea back. I got out also my backpack slung over my shoulder; I walked to the front door.
"C'mon Alfred." I say behind my shoulder as Alfred walks up to me.
"I'm here! Open the doooor!" Alfred whined as I sighed and did as he whined at me too.
Once we were in I heard Mrs. Jones call out.
"Alfred! Where were you! Next time leave a note! Or call me!" As soon as that was said Mrs. Jones walked into the room.
"Arthur! You're here! Great timing actually... Just made your favorite cookies!" I was enveloped in a hug.
"Mother…" Alfred sighed out.
"What! Well I was just going out to get back to go back to work. Oh and Matthew called earlier that he's at a friend's, so don't expect him home soon. If not at all. He said he might sleep over." Mrs. Jones hugged Alfred and we all said our goodbyes.
As soon as she left Alfred sighed again.
"Sorry about mother... Let's make some tea and watch that movie!" Alfred moved toward the kitchen and I followed with a smile.
(A/N: I'm gonna mention before he eats out with everyone then skip till afterwards so we aren't repeating anything k? ;DD)
I looked at the clock. Then back to the teacher. Then the clock again. A sigh escapes my lips as I set my head down in my arms.
I was in French class and I already did the needed grammar homework so I didn't know what to do next.
"Matthew?" The teacher calls me and motions me to head over to him.
"Yes?" I look up at him.
"There's some senior, Francis here for you. He has an excuse for you to get out of class. Grab your stuff and you can be on your way." The teacher nodded approvingly.
I blush and quickly grabbed my stuff hurrying out the door.
"Mattie!" My heart rake quickens when I see Francis, like usual.
I hope that feeling never leaves me as we date. I love that feeling. Francis moved an arm around me. I smile up at him.
"Hey… How-" I was interrupted by Francis who bended down for a quick peck on the lips.
He pulled back, as I leaned into his arms more because we were bent into a weird angle.
"Francis?" I say quietly as he smiled.
"I have a proposal to ask you." He turns up right again and has us walk to my locker quickly.
"Yea?" I forgot the question I was going to ask him.
"But you finish, you were going to say something no?" Francis takes his arm from me and lets me open my locker.
"I forgot. You go ahead." I turn and give him a smile.
"Well I was wondering if you'd like to go for lunch with me and a few of my pals? We're going to go eat Italian." He offers as I grabbed my hoodie with my favorite Canadian hockey team logo on it. I put it on.
"Yea! I'll go. Since you already got me out of class." I smiled at Francis leaving everything in the locker.
"We're not heading back here so you should grab what you need." Francis added as I glanced at my locker.
"I'll be fine..." I smiled up at Francis as he put an arm around me and led the both of us out of the building to meet up with everyone else.
-Alright now we're at the point after the Italian lunch-
Everyone was up from the table and heading over to Grandpa Rome to pay for our meal. I went to pull out my wallet but a hand stopped mine.
"I got it." Francis winked at me.
"No! I can pay for the both of us." I say nodding my head.
"Next time, this time let me." Francis said and wrapped an arm around me.
I lean into his shoulder wrapping my arm around his back.
"Alright..." Sadiq and Gilbert waited for the rest of us outside.
Lovino hugged his grandpa goodbye and left with Antonio to wait outside.
"Ahh Francis! This is Matthew correct? The one you've told me about?" Grandpa Rome laughs out.
"It is!" Francis laughs with him.
"Hello." I say quietly as Francis paid and left a generous tip.
"Grazie! Now you both have a great day! Ciao!" Grandpa Rome waved us goodbye as we left.
Francis kissed me quickly and left me by Antonio and Lovino as he ran up by Gilbert and Sadiq.
"Have fun!" He said as he went up to his other friends.
I just laugh nervously; he knew how I wanted to become friends with Lovino.
"Hey Lovino." I say quietly. He turns to me with a very small smile.
"Hey Matthew." The smile disappeared but the friendly look in his eyes was still there.
"You cook really good! I cook too sometimes." I smile back but it stays instead of falling like Lovino's.
"Ooo! What do you cook?" Antonio peers over Lovino.
He immediately pulls his head back dodging Lovino's fist.
"Hey this is my conversation, so butt out bastardo." He said glaring at Antonio.
All Antonio did was laugh and wrap an arm around him, and oddly Lovino didn't do anything about it but blush. Kind of.
"So Matthew what do you cook?" Lovino asked.
I laugh a bit at the silliness they showed, but didn't say anything of it.
"I make pastries, sometimes. Cakes, pies... But mostly I make breakfast for my family so I got really good at making pancakes-" I felt an arm go around me.
"You make pancakes?! Pancakes are the shit! You should make us some awesome pancakes when we have that video gaming time!" Gilbert laughed.
I nodded. I like baking pancakes so why not?
"Yea! Sounds like an awesome plan right Lovino!" Antonio asked him.
"But we all ate not even fucking 10 minutes ago!" Lovino said glaring up at him.
"Well we're not going to play video games till later so it'll be awhile from now... Right?" I say a little louder than usual, because everyone was around me.
"But I want awesomecakes now." Gilbert whined. Sadiq hit him across his head.
"God that's so annoying! We'll get some pancakes later alright?" Before Sadiq could get his answer Gilbert had him in a headlock.
(A/N: Teenage boys... Tsk tsk.)
Francis came up and grabbed my hand, I intertwined our fingers.
"Well let's go kill some time no?" Francis said as Gilbert and Sadiq walked back by everyone.
"Sadiq and I need more groceries so we could go shopping for snacks and what not for the video games later." Antonio said as it looked like he pulled Lovino closer.
As everyone else discussed what to do that I looked up at Francis and asked him,
"Do Antonio and Sadiq live together?"
Francis smiled down at me.
I looked at him confused. Francis just laughed and explained;
"Well, when Antonio came out and told his parents he was gay, they didn't except it well. At first they tried to send him to someplace to 'fix' him," Francis empathized on the 'fix'. "But Antonio ended up moving out. At first he stayed with me for a few days, until he felt he had 'over stayed', which he didn't. Then he stayed with Gilbert, Sadiq, and I off and on until Sadiq offered to get an apartment with him last year. And Sadiq's parents help them out, along with Gilbert and I, but they both have steady jobs so they're fine.
I nod, getting it, but frown at the same time. It would be hurtful not to have understanding parents... I can't imagine my mom trying to kick me out…
"So we're playing games at our place?" Sadiq asked. Gilbert nodded.
"Of course! Your place is awesome! No parents either!"
"Fuck! I didn't clean! Alright how bout we split in half, Gilbert Francis and I are going to go clean. Lovino Matthew and Antonio, you guys are ok with shopping?" Sadiq said more than asked.
"Yea I'm fine with that!" Antonio smiled as Lovino rolled his eyes. Everyone just took that for a yes.
"Sure!" I say quietly as everyone else nodded.
"Sounds like a plan! Alright let's go!" Sadiq and Gilbert walk in head of us.
Francis gives me a peck on my cheek.
"A bientôt Matthieu~" he whispered in my ear.
I kiss his cheek back. Francis walks away as I turn to Lovino and Antonio.
"Where do you shop for food?" I ask Antonio. Lovino looks at him also wondering.
"Just whatever we can get from some local food stores. And the rest from some huge marketing places. Some of the local places are like; Yao's family's market or Ludwig's and Gilbert's parents' butchery." Antonio scratches the back of his head with his free hand that wasn't holding Lovino.
"But today we're probably going to the regular grocery store, cuz we can't go anywhere else without getting busted."
"Makes sense." I say as Lovino scrunches up his face.
"I'm sorry, but I'm kinda lost... Why are we grocery shopping for you and that fucking retard? Are you brothers? Because you defiantly don't look alike."
Antonio laughed, pulling Lovino closer.
"You're so cute~ but no. I'm not his brother. I have no siblings, but we live together."
Antonio ignored Lovino's outbursts saying that he wasn't cute, and asked me;
"Francis told you right?"
I nod and smile patting his shoulder.
"Yea, I don't know how to make of it really... not having understanding parents like that... And I'm just glad you weren't sent away to one of those places."
"Yea me too!" He just laughed, but he had a sad look in his eye.
"Are we just going to fucking leave me out on this? Because I'm feeling left out!" Lovino shouted.
"Ah, Lovi! Yes I'll explain!"
"Then get to it bastardo!"
I chuckle with Antonio.
"Well I live with Sadiq because about a year ago when I told my parents I'm gay they tried to send me away to a place that would apparently fix me-"
I jumped as Lovino yelled,
"WHAT!? WHO WOULD DO THAT TO THEIR OWN SON-"
Lovino was cut off by Antonio who covered his mouth.
"Lovi! Calm down!"
I went over to Lovino's side patting his shoulder trying to call down. He took a deep breath and scowled.
"Why did they do that? Aren't you their only son?" Lovino growled out.
"Well I come from a very religious family, and they just don't believe that being gay is right. But I rather have told them than hiding it forever."
"That's fucking retarded... So how come you weren't sent away?"
"I ran away and they let me. I stayed with Francis Gil and Sadiq until Sadiq and I were old enough to move in an apartment. We all would've, but Gil's mom forbade Gil to do so, along with Francis's parents. This past year has been great, and I've had a steady job, so does Sadiq so we handle it well. We also have good support." Antonio said as Lovino looked up at him and gave him a small smile but it disappeared quickly.
"Good." It looked like he wanted to say more but he didn't. Antonio hugged Lovino for the smile but let go to say what he wanted to.
"And speaking about apartments, yours is the one next across from mine right?" Antonio asked Lovino.
"You guys are neighbors! Lucky!" I say as Lovino groans.
I just smile at Lovino. The shopping went by quick, since we only really got was eggs, butter, flour, sugar, a few boxed fixed dinners, snacks, tomatoes, and chocolate. It really wasn't much. We were heading to the checkout line while Lovino was scolding Antonio that he was getting boxed dinners. Even if they were cheap, Lovino didn't like the fact it was in a box.
"Why are you getting that? Just curious..." I asked Antonio who looks over to me.
"Besides the fact is it's cheap and not that bad, plus Sadiq and I get too busy to cook our meals most of the time so these are quick and easy." He explains as Lovino rolled his eyes. "We can both cook we just don't have enough time, ya know?"
"If that's your problem then maybe if you ask nicely bastardo I'll cook for you once in a while." Lovino blushes as he said that. I cover my mouth and laugh as Antonio hugged Lovino close.
"Por favor! I would very much like that~ especially your cooking, it's amazing!"
Lovino shoved Antonio away.
"Oi! Bastardo! It'll depend! And I said if you ask nicely."
Antonio just nodded, paid for the food and then ushered us forward.
"Let's go, we can start the games sooner~."
X at the apartments X
"Ahh! Mattie~ I missed you!" As soon as I walked into Antonio and Sadiq's place I was enveloped into a hug.
I smiled and hugged back.
"I did too."
When we separated Gilbert dragged Francis away into the kitchen.
I looked around: the living room (main room) had a moderate sized TV (32 inch flat screen), a fluffy dark red couch about the size of a love seat, and two old looking arm chairs around it.
The huge room was the main room, on my left was the kitchen attached to it all and it held a smaller fridge around a few cupboards a sink and a dish rack.
There were two doors; those I am assumed are a bathroom and a bedroom.
"Ah! Matthew, Lovino let me show you around!" Antonio said. I nod as Lovino shrugs.
"That door is the bathroom, not too big though, just enough room for a shower sink and toilet.
"And in here is the bed room." Antonio opens that food revealing a huge mess. There were two full sized beds two dressers and a closet. Clothes were everywhere. He sighs and then turns to the other three on the couch.
"I though you said you cleaned?"
"We did except there. Since Gil is sleeping over again. Francis and Matthew you're welcome to sleep over. You too, Lovino, if you don't feel like crossing the hall." Sadiq offered.
"I probably will, and I opened a wine bottle~" Francis raised his wine glass.
"Awesome! We should all stay over! You in Matthew? It's okay if you're not though. Despite how unawesome that sounds." Gilbert cheered raising his beer.
"Sure, I'll need to call my mom though." I said as Lovino gave me his cell.
"Here, and since you're staying I will too." Lovino said.
I smiled happily. I went to go call my mom in the bedroom away from the noise.
Tonight will be fun.
Ludwig's POV (A/N: this part of the chapter may seem awkward because I found out that I'm not that great at writing in Luddy's POV)
I watched as Feliciano's rude brother walked away.
"Uh is that normal?" I ask as Feliciano sighs.
"Yea, but it doesn't matter, he'll be fine. Alright back to this poem…" I listen to Feliciano talk about the meaning of the poem and what I could write about for my essay on this poem.
(A/N: Italy may be a ditz in the anime series but I think and I'm positive that he's got his smarts in there somewhere.)
"I think I get it now..." I sigh out combing my fingers threw my hair. I look up at the clock; it was already time to leave to next period.
"Hey Feliciano, you have art next right?" I ask him as he nods.
"Sí! I just stay in here right? 'Cause I have everything…" He looks down at his stuff.
"Yea that's fine, I'm going to head to my class..." I state but before I walked away Feliciano spoke my name.
"Oh, and Ludwig?"
"I was wonder if you want to meet up by the lockers to eat lunch together? ... If you don't want that's fine too." A pink dusting covered his face, making me blush too. Right there I couldn't help but think that he looked very cute.
"Ja, that's fine. I'll meet you by your locker then. See you soon." I said my goodbye hearing his afterwards. I walked out of the art room. I sighed; my next class was where I learn to draw designs, both by hand and computer, to build stuff.
Normally I love this class and get into the lesson right away but today, something was on my mind... It was about the new student, Feliciano. Stuff about him, was he from Italy? Since he obviously spoke Italiano. What is he really like? Likes? Dislikes? We've just become friends and even though in good at telling what a person is like without them opening up... He's different that way…
I walked down the hallway moving past some people, before I swore they walked faster than me. I walk past my locker towards Feliciano's instead. We could stop by my locker before we head into the lunch room. When the next corner comes up to turn I make myself stop. Take a breath and turn around to put my stuff away. It'd look weird that I'm holding my stuff like I rushed to his locker right after class ended. Which I didn't…
Putting my stuff away in my locker fairly fast I force myself to walk slower to Feliciano's locker. I also made sure I wasn't taking up too much time so I wouldn't make him wait. I move around the corner to go to the place where I promised I'd meet up with Feliciano. Except when I made my way over I frowned and rushed over to his side. What I saw was two other female students, who were around Feliciano, yelling at him. Right when I came around the corner, I was seen.
"Ludwig! Oh there you are! Help? Ve!" Feliciano guarded his face as one of the two raised their hand, which didn't come down. I held it where it was.
"Stop. You can obviously tell he won't fight back, so back off." I growled out making the women jump in fright.
"L-Ludwig!" They both gasped out when they turned around. Tears in their eyes being caught by someone they didn't want to be caught by.
"Why are you over here?" I let go of the girl's wrist. "You're supposed to be in the lunch room!" The other girl hid behind the one talking, and the one talking acted like she wasn't just about to hit Feliciano.
"That goes for you two as well, and why I'm over here is none of your business." I say coldly.
The one hiding flinched at my tone but the other stood proudly.
"Well could you leave? We're covering over some… business." She glanced over at Feliciano and I narrowed my eyes.
"Business? Sorry but whatever you need to take up with Feliciano, you can say it in my face also."
"W-what! Fine! But remember what I said new kid! My eyes are on you!" The girl dragged the other one away leaving Feliciano and me behind. I watched them leave, my back facing Feliciano.
"Grazie Ludwig!" I felt arms embrace me from behind; I feel my face go red instantly.
"Feli-" I was cut off.
"That was so scary! They suddenly enclosed around me after I had shut my locker and started yelling at me on how I shouldn't be talking to you or be around you then that one girl raised her fist and-" Now I cut Feliciano off.
"They said for you to not be around me? That's ridiculous." I try to turn around but when I did Feliciano was still around my back, making me realize that his feet were around my waist.
"I'd rather not listen to them… I like hanging around you! You're my first friend from this school, and probably not many will follow up… not many people like me." My face heats up more when I heard Feliciano say his part. I reach for one of the hands from the arms that were wrapped around my neck and patted it in a comforting way.
"Don't listen to what anyone says about things like that. I'm not going anywhere that'll keep me from being friends with you."
"Grazie Ludwig.. That really makes me feel better." I feel Feliciano give me one last tight hug from the way he was on my back then jumped down. "I'm hungry, let's go get lunch!" Feliciano walks in front of me as I walk up a bit faster to catch up with him.
Unknowingly to the two boys, the two girls stood around a different corner blushing, since they had seen and heard the whole thing.
"Karen? Do you-" The shier of the two spoke to her friend.
"Yes Jane, instead of the Ludwig fanclub we started now we must start a new one, demolishing the old one. The LudwigxFeliciano fanclub." The fangirl Karen interrupted her friend, but in the end they both squealed and went to share their news with their fellow fans.
XX later~ XX
I glance over at Feliciano and sigh. How can he do that? Falling asleep in class, not any class but in physical education. Currently we are just sitting down on the ground in the shade just because the game of baseball we were playing just ended. Even though he barely participated, Feliciano proclaimed he was tired and instead of walking around the track dragged me to the shade and fell asleep. I glance again at the sleeping Italian. Earlier at lunch we decided to go sit by Kiku again. Then a girl named Elizaveta joined us. It was fun, I did learn a lot about Feliciano and his friends. During my other class with Feliciano, Foreign Cultures, we talked and opened up a bit more.
"Ludwig, you keep looking at me, is there something on my face?" I blush, Feliciano's voice brought me out of my trance.
"N-no. There isn't... I was just thinking. Oh and hey, Feliciano?" My blush dies down as turn my gaze into Feliciano's eyes.
"Do you take the bus home? Because you said you lived in town but I'm wondering how close you live to the school." I bring up something random so I don't seem like I was staring at him for no reason…
"No, I walk home. How about you Ludwig? Do you ride the bus?"
"Nien, I don't. I drive home and back." I say as I get up and offer a hand to Feliciano. The coach was calling everyone in.
"Oh! What about your brother? Does he ride with you?" He grabs my hand and we both head back to the boys locker room.
"He sometimes rides to school and back with me, but rarely. He usually is at his friends' Sadiq's and Antonio's apartment with Francis… How about Elizaveta and Kiku? They both said they lived in a few towns over."
"Oh, Kiku's dad drives them here and back! Since he works at the bank here in this town, that's why they transferred here with fratello and I."
"That makes sense..." We were back in the locker room. He started pulling his shirt off just as I turned to look at him. I blush and turn away.
"Ve! It does doesn't it?" Feliciano smiles up at me, and starts changing into the school uniform.
We finished changing while I listened to Feliciano talk about nothing in particular. We headed towards the lockers.
"I wonder where Lovi went... Oh I hope he isn't lost!" Feliciano says worriedly. Lovino had gym with him but he didn't show up. Feliciano glanced at his phone and relief washed over his face.
"Found out where he is?" I ask leaning against the lockers. I didn't need to get anything done tonight, all my homework was already done.
"Sí! He's at Antonio's place! With a few other people and Matthew he says... I don't really know them but oh well!"
"Your brother knows Antonio?"
"Yea he's our neighbor! With Sadiq...? I wasn't introduced to him but was told about him!" Feliciano grabbed his stuff and we started to head out the door. We got outside and the buses were leaving already, I glance behind me finding the two girls from earlier and frown... Why were they there...? Unless they were going to gang up on Feliciano, but I won't let them do that. Nien, I won't.
"Hey Feliciano, let me drive you home, since you're not walking with anyone... Er, it could get lonely. Plus it'll be faster!" I say grabbing Feliciano's arm and dragging him to my car. I hear Feliciano giggle.
"Sure! Grazie! Is this your car? Cool!" Feliciano moves to the passenger's side of the car as I unlocked it.
"Ja." I get the car going as soon as we were both buckled and then I headed downtown where the apartments were I needed to head to. Feliciano was quieter than he was the entire day. I found this odd.
"Is something wrong?" I glance over at Feliciano but kept my eyes on the road. I was a responsible driver, unlike my brother.
"No! I'm just thinking on how lucky I am to have a great friend like you Ludwig! You're so nice and friendly, and not only that but you drove me home! Grazie!"
I blush slightly, open my mouth to say something but I shut it with a huff.
"It's no problem really, so don't mention it." We were getting closer to Feliciano's apartment, and Feliciano was back to his talking. I just listened until I pulled the car up to the apartments.
"We're here." I say as Feliciano face brightens up more if possible.
"Grazie again! Good bye Ludwig! See you tomorrow!" Feliciano moved quick and came closer to my face, until I feel his lips on my cheek, a quick peck as another form of a good bye. I tense up gripping the steering wheel in surprise and feel my face redden as I stutter out a good bye back. Feliciano just grinned and closed the door walking in his manner to the doors of the apartment and walked in. I relax and start to drive home… I slowly start to think about today, it was different and I liked it, a good different. A feel a small smile on my face, and I won't admit this out loud... but I can't wait for tomorrow to come.
I smiled to myself, looking around at the now clean (except bedroom) apartment. I had friends over and Lovi! Today was by far one of the best days!
"Lovino! We're the awesome team! Over here! Sit! Oh and do you want an awesome beer? Or unawesome wine, which ever you fancy." Gilbert stands to get Lovino a beverage.
"I'll take wine..." He looked unsure of choosing.
"You don't have to have any if you don't want too!" Francis added not wanted to push Lovino into drinking.
"Or you can share with me!" I move into the kitchen grabbing a beer myself and sat by Sadiq since I was on his team.
"It's just I've never really drank alcohol before, so I don't really know what I prefer." Lovino blushed sitting where Gilbert told him too.
I move over across the living room to Lovino. "Here! You can try my beer!" I handed the bottle to him. He looked at me and at the bottle then told a sip.
Everyone in the room (so not Matthew) watched him, he scowled at the bottle.
"It's bitter… You have anything, er... sweeter?" He gave the bottle back.
Gilbert took a wine glass out and poured him a glass, "Here! I suppose it's sweeter." He handed Lovino the glass and sat back down kicking me to the other side of the room because that side was for his team only.
Lovino took a sip of the wine and his scowl lessened. "Yea this is better." He set it down on a shelf on the side of the room. "Where'd you get the alcohol?"
"Sadiq gets from the liquor store. His uncle runs it, and as long as he pays his uncle doesn't give a shit really." Francis says as he scoots over to Sadiq and my side of the room. Matthew comes out of the bedroom handing the phone back to Lovino.
"Thanks." He smiles at Lovi, who smiled back a bit and nodded, then moves over to Francis. Matthew was also offered an alcoholic beverage but he denied saying he'd be sipping from Francis's wine glass if he did wanted some.
"Hey! Mattie! You're on this side!" Gilbert said as he sat in Francis's lap.
"We'll be fine. We'll kick their asses anyway." Lovino said sticking his tounge out at Sadiq who repeated the action.
"Not endless we kick yours first!" Sadiq smirked. He loves a good challenge.
I laugh getting up and putting in the first game Mortal Combat in the PS3 handing out a controller to Gilbert and Francis. I moved towards the kitchen as I heard arguing about who goes first.
"But I want to go first!" Sadiq whined and Francis kept the controller out of his reach.
"Let the guests go first! Be a good host!"
"But you and Gilbert technically live here so it's not fair!"
"If that jackass is going first I want to kick his ass first." Lovino added.
"Yea, that's fine but I don't think Francis will fork it over to him." Gilbert was first so he started up the game and picked his character.
Matthew grabbed the controller when Sadiq pounced on Francis having it fall from his hands. Rolling his eyes and grinning he looked over to Gilbert.
"I guess I'm first!"
I came back with a bowl of chips and put them in between the two groups then sat down by Lovi.
"Hey, if you're gonna fight watch out for the chips okay? I don't want to clean up a mess." I say as Francis and Sadiq roll into the couch, both keeping each other at arm's length.
"Bastardo. Aren't you supposed to be over there on that team?" Lovino sipped his wine and looked up at me. Gilbert didn't notice anything since he was too engrossed into the game.
"Verdammt! You're good! I shouldn't be going easy!" Gilbert cursed as Matthew gave him a confidant smile. "Well don't underestimate people."
"I don't want to get into the fight and besides! I'd rather sit by you!" I reach down to hug Lovi, but he put his hand against my face preventing me from coming closer.
"I let you touch me before but not anymore. Back off asshole." He blushed some but looked at me with challenging eyes.
I smirk and take his hand from my face and bring it to my lips kissing it. "Lovi~ you can't resist my charm for long-" I was cut off by a controller to my face bringing me down to the ground. Letting go of Lovino's hand I sit up fast holding my nose with one hand and the controller with the other.
"What was-" I was cut off by Gilbert.
"You're on our side of the room! You're not awesome enough to be over here! AWAY! SHOO!" Gilbert took the controller and kicked me over to the other side of the room. I groan head down pouting. Gilbert had won that round and now was playing Francis. Lovino and along with everyone was laughing. I laughed with them a bit smiling. Matthew went over to me asking if I was alright, and I told him I was. I caught Lovino's glance, which made him blush and I just gave him a big smile. He blushed more looking away muttering something. I just smiled to myself more.
X some time passed and a few different video games later . X
"AH SHIT!" Sadiq yelled as Gilbert cheered throwing the crumbs of the potato chips all over him. "WE WON! OH YEA! Suck on that losers!" Gilbert exclaimed loudly. Lovino owned our asses at Super Smash Brothers Brawl.
"Told you I'd win jackass!" Lovino smirked as Sadiq pouted.
"No fucking way…" Sadiq leaned against me. "And since you're such a good sport Gilbert guess what you get!"
"A prize?!" Gilbert perked up excited. "Is it awesome!"
"You get to clean the chips you sprinkled everywhere! IT'S A FUCKING MESS HERE AGAIN!" Sadiq pounces onto Gilbert. I just shake my head laughing and getting up to get the vacuum.
"Hey Lovino! Do you want to help me make some pancakes?" Matthew got up from Francis's lap, who let him go so he could help me clean.
"I suppose." He grabs his empty wine glass and gets up and moves towards the kitchen with Matthew. I start the vaccum up and clean the mess kicking Gilbert or Sadiq if they roll over my way. Francis picks the bowl and the empty beer bottles up.
"Thanks Francis." I put the vacuum away watching Gilbert sit on top of Sadiq with a winning grin.
"Get off me! You're fucking heavy!" Sadiq squirmed as Gilbert just laughed.
"Be a man! It's not that bad! Oh and thanks Toni! I swear I was going to be awesome and clean that up after kicking his ass." Gilbert gets off Sadiq who puffs his cheeks out and leans against the couch for support.
"Yea, sure you were amigo." I laugh as Gilbert argued that he was.
"Then if you were going to be 'awesome' that way, you get dishes duty. You too jackass since you lost." Lovino pipped up from the kitchen.
Francis laughed patting Lovino's shoulder. "I like the way you think!"
"What! Okay, you know I was kidding right?! I don't want to do dishes-" Gilbert was tackled down by me. I held him in a headlock and laughed.
"But that'd be unawesome of you! Plus you'll have Sadiq to help!" I let go as Gilbert collapsed on the ground dramatically.
"Fine but this is just this once." Gilbert grumbled unhappily, but then realized that pancakes were being made. "Wait! We're gonna eat awesomecakes! HELLZ YEA!"
Francis moved from the kitchen being kicked out by Matthew, and flopped down hogging the whole couch. Gilbert turns on the PS3 and puts in the Black Ops game. I move Francis's feet sitting where they were and placing them on my lap. Sadiq sits by Gilbert and they were both using Francis as a pillow. I was handed a controller by Gilbert.
"We're taking turns losers first." Gilbert snickered and was punch by Sadiq who was also handed a controller. Francis laughed and watched us get to the starting screen to play zombies.
"Hey! You guys know I hate zombies! That's totally unawesome!" Gilbert jumped in fright when he realized what we were playing.
"Grow up Gil, they're not that bad. All they do is eat brains!" Sadiq elbowed his friend who whined.
I laugh and changed it back to online. Everyone was still chuckling and teasing Gilbert a bit. I gave up the controller to Francis after I died a few times and got up to head into the kitchen.
"Come back foot rest! You were so comfy!" Francis called to me.
I glanced over my shoulder. "I'm sorry but I'm gonna go help Matthew and Lovino. I might come back though!" I walk into the kitchen.
"So... When bubbles start to form on the pancake it's ready to flip?" Lovino looked at Matthew who was making another few batches since the others didn't look like enough. We were all hungry teenage boys after all.
"Yea, and it's okay to let it cook where it's a little brown. It still tastes good." Matthew said then turned to me and smiled. "Hello Antonio!"
"Hello Matthew! Lovi~ it smells really good in here!" I move my arms around Lovi's waist and place my chin on his head. He started squirming and flailing his arms but I kept my place.
"Let go! I'm trying to cook!"
"You can cook fine like this, your arms are free!" I let go anyways since he asked me too. I wasn't that cruel.
"Bastardo..." Lovino flipped the pancakes.
Matthew placed a large plate next to Lovino so he could place the pancakes on there when they're done.
"Thanks Matthew." Lovino smiled at his friend. I sighed; I wish Lovi would smile at me freely! Even though I just met him this morning he has to be the most perfect person I've come across. His looks are amazing; he's secretly very kind and emotional. I still have so much to learn about him! So I vow from this day forth to always stick by his side and be there for him. And even if I can't make him mine I'll be his best friend. (Right now the only thing that'd make me break that vow if he was some kind of serial killer…) I smile at myself for coming up with the greatest thing ever.
"First 6 pancakes are done... Who wants them?!" Lovino shouted.
Two calls of 'me' were heard.
"I call the awesomecakes!"
"It's my place! I could kick you out!"
"But it's Antonio's too and you'd have to compromise with him!"
I take a pancake and take a bite. It was good! Fluffy and warm. I offered Lovino a bite.
"Hmm?" He looked at me then the pancake and took a bite, then another.
I smile and let him have it taking another pancake. Francis took two for himself, sharing with Matthew.
Today is the greatest day ever to happen.
