You tossed your school bag on the floor and collapsed on your bed. “Thank God it’s Friday!” You cheered as you reached under your bed and pulled out a chocolate bar from your ‘secret stash’.
As you chomped down on your delicious treat, your cell phone buzzed in your pocket. You pulled it out and smirked, it was your long-time friend Antonio.
“Hey Toni," you answered, mouth full of chocolate.
“Hello _________! What is my good friend doing today?”
“Lying on her bed getting fat on chocolate. You?”
“Well, I have a little teeny tiny favour to ask of you _________!” Antonio chirped loudly.
“Mmmhmm? What is it?” you asked, licking your sticky fingers clean.
“Well, I’m going out tonight! You know, for a party!”
You giggled at his cute Spanish accent. “A party, eh? Why am I not invited?” you pretended to sound sad. To be honest you didn’t even feel like going out tonight.
“Well, I uh, if you want to come I’m sure it will be no problem with Francis and Gilbert!” Antonio said cheerfully.
“Francis? Gilbert? No way buddy! I still have my innocence and I’d like to keep it that way!” you laughed.
“Hoho ________! Antonio laughed along with you. “Well anyway, I was wondering if you could babysit Lovino for me?”
You scoffed. He wanted you to babysit Lovino? You have known him for a while now and still didn’t like him.
You still remember the first time you met him. You had offered to shake his hand but he just twisted his face in disgust and stomped off towards his room.
“Uh, Antonio. Isn’t Lovino a fully grown man?” you asked as you reached under your bed for another chocolate.
“Yes, but he’s got a mind like a child! And not a good one either! Please ______? Just for one night! I fear that if he doesn’t have a babysitter he’ll burn the house down or something!”
You didn’t even have to see his face to know he was doing his famous puppy dog eyes.
You groaned “Argh okay Antonio! But you owe me one!”
“Uh yes! Thank you so much ________! I will pick you up at 4:30!”
You hung up and threw your phone on your bed. Out of all the fun things you could be doing on a Friday night, looking after a grumpy man was not one of them.
You switched on your laptop and check your DeviantART . You spent the next hour reading reader inserts and devouring more chocolate bars.
Before you knew it, it was 4:25! You cussed and ran to your dresser and through on your (Favourite colour) tank top and shorts. You weren’t in the mood to impress and especially since it was just Lovino.
You grabbed your purse and opened the front door.
“________!” Antonio sang as he embraced you. “Thank you so much for doing this for me!”
“Aw it’s nothing really. I have nothing better to do anyway” you said as you climbed into his car.
“No homework? Lovino always has homework, but he never does it! Ugh what am I going to do with that boy?”
You smiled. You loved Antonio’s cheerful voice and attitude. It was contagious too because you can’t stop smiling when he’s around.
“Well, what time are you coming home?” you asked.
“Well umm, I don’t know! Pretty late, like after three?”
You raised an eyebrow “3.00 am?!”
"Oh don’t worry! You can sleep in the spare bedroom for the night.”
You smiled again “okay sweet. Any ground rules?” you questioned whilst fiddling with your seatbelt.
“Si! I made you a list” Antonio passed you a small piece of paper.
RULES FOR LOVINO
1 . Make sure Lovino eats! He will get very grumpy is he does not!
2 . I made you and Lovino dinner; it’s on the top shelf of the fridge.
3 . Lovino has to be in bed by midnight or he will be very grumpy the next day.
4 . All the tomatoes are on the top shelf of the pantry. Just get Lovino to get them down for you if you cannot reach them.
5 . Call me if you need anything!
You laughed out loud. Antonio laughed with you “I know right! He is like a small child! But I’m sure you can do it _________.”
“I’ll try my hardest! Has his attitude improved at all lately?” You asked.
Antonio burst out laughing again. “Nope! Still has grumpy as ever!” But there is one thing…”
You turned to him and raised an eyebrow “Yes?”
“Whenever I mention your name or anything about you, he blushes and nibbles his lip.”
Antonio turned to you at a stop light and smiled. “It probably doesn’t mean anything, so don’t fret about it.”
You walked with Antonio up to his huge mansion door. Antonio put a firm hand on your shoulder and smiled.
“Now, Lovino is taking a nap right now, so could you please wake him up and make him help you prepare dinner?”
“Okay sure” you said, taking mental notes in your head.
Antonio squeezed your shoulder “Good luck _____!” He leaned forward and kissed your cheek. “And remember; call me if you need anything!”
“I will I will, don’t worry! Have fun!” you called out to him as he got into his car. You waved to him and he pulled out of his driveway and drove off.
You closed the front door and breathed out. ‘Okay’ you thought ‘first things first, wake up Lovino!’
You had been to Antonio’s house so many times now that you knew off by heart where Lovino’s room was.
You hopped up the huge staircase and called out his name.
You frowned and knocked on his door.
“Lovino are you awake?” you called through the door. Still no reply.
You slowly opened his door and chuckled. He was sprawled out on his bed, drooling like a dog.
“Lovino…” you said softly “You need to get up and help me with dinner.” Lovino grumbled and pulled his pillow over his head. “Go away ________, I don’t want to see you.”
Ouch. That kind of hurt.
You frowned and yanked his pillow off his head. “Get your lazy ass out of bed and help me with dinner!” you growled, still pissed from his unneeded comment.
You grabbed his hand and pulled him roughly out of bed. “Argh…” he hissed as he stumbled into you, pinning you against the wall.
You stared up at his closed eyes, blushing. His eyes slowly flickered open and stared at you back. His cheeks got redder by the second and soon his whole face was as red as a tomato.
“Uh sorry” he mumbled as he awkwardly stepped away from you.
“It’s okay. So as you know-“
“Yeah, yeah I know! You’re babysitting me! Why does that bastard Spain always do this? I’m an adult now and I can….”
He carried on cussing in Italian to no one in particular. You frowned at him “Well I don’t want to be here either okay? But I am. So can we just get a move on with dinner? I’m starving my ass off over here!”
“Whatever” Lovino grumbled as he left the room. You turned and looked and his bed. His bed sheets print was a pattern of smiling tomatoes and he had an half eaten tomato on his bedside table.
You smiled. It’s kind of cute really, how much he loves tomatoes.
“_________! What are you doing in there!?”
You jumped and snapped out of your thoughts. “Get out of my room!” he growled in his strong Italian accent. He walked over to a small box and stood in front of it.
You craned your head so you could get a better look at it, but he stepped in your way. “Are we going to make dinner or what?” he asked.
“Dinner is already made. We just need to heat it up”. You said slowly, still trying to get a peak and the brightly coloured box.
“Hey Lovino, what’s in the bo-“
“I’m glad Antonio made dinner. You’re a useless cook anyway ________”. Lovino interrupted as he led you out of his room.
You just ignored his snotty remark and headed to the kitchen. You opened up the fridge and saw the huge plate of pasta, smothered with tomatoes.
The side of the plate had a small sticky note reading ‘Here’s dinner! Heat in microwave for 4 minutes (: ‘
You grabbed the plate and whipped around, only to meet something hard. “Gah!” you yelped as the plate of pasta slipped out of your hand and landed all down the front of Lovino.
You slowly looked up at his face and gulped, he look furious.
“T-that wasn’t my fault!” you squeaked “Why were you standing so close to me?”
Lovino just continued to stare at you, frown still plastered to his features. Suddenly he reached down and grabbed your wrist tightly.
You yelped in surprise as he turned around and pulled you out of the kitchen.
“Let go of me Lovino!” you hissed, trying to resist his pull. But no matter how much you fought, he still dragged you along behind him. ‘God that boy is stronger than he looks!’ you thought.
He pulled you up the staircase and headed down the long hall. You knew this path! It was the path to his bedroom! You fought and kicked him harder but he still dragged you along with him.
“I said I’m sorry! If you pull me anymore I’ll smack you one!” you threatened.
Suddenly he turned around and hoisted you up onto his shoulders and carried you into his bedroom. ‘What a smartass…’ you thought as you tried to bite his shoulder.
He walked to the foot of his big double bed and plonked you down. You lay on your back for a while, and then rose up growling. “What the hell? I said-“
Lovino was standing in front of you, holding out a box. Wait, it’s ‘that’ box! The one you were trying to get a peek at earlier!
“Open it” he commanded with a hint of embarrassment in his voice.
“You pulled me up here to-“
“Just open it!” he barked “Please!”
“Okay okay! Don’t get your curl in a knot!” You took the box from his hands and slowly began to tear the wrapping around it.
You flicked the last of the wrapping to the floor and lifted up the box’s lid. You slowly leaned forward and peered into it. A red face smiled back up at you .You reached in and pulled out the soft toy. It was a big soft tomato plushie!
“Oh Lovino, it’s adorable!”
“I made it myself” Lovino mumbled, a big scarlet blush spreading across his cheeks.
“I love it!” you cheered as you pulled the toy to your chest.
“How long did it tak-“
“Wlyubmahgrlfrind?” Lovino mumbled quickly.
You looked up at Lovino with an eyebrow raised.
“What?” you asked.
“Wilyubemagirlfrind?” he mumbled again.
“I can’t understand you Lovi-“
“Will you be my girlfriend?” Lovino said loudly.
You stared up at him completely dumb struck. He refused to look at you and blushed at the floor. He just asked you to be his girlfriend? But you thought he hated you? You took another look at him; his red cheeks glowing and his bright eyes darting around the room. You had never looked at him in this way before. You had never realized how good looking he is!
Now that you've seen he indeed does have a sweet side, you couldn't hold back.
“Yes! Yes of course Lovi!” you laughed and jumped up, hugging him.
“Argh! Careful ________! I’ve got pasta on me!”
You look down at your now stained shirt and shrugged. “Mmm doesn’t matter Lovi” you smiled as you leaned up and kissed his glowing red cheek.
You looked up at him and smiled. He stared at you for a bit, but then returned the gesture.
“Oh Lovi!” you teased “You’re smiling!”
“Yes I know _____! Don’t rub it in!” Lovino replied, his smile quickly turning back into a frown.
He leaned down and your lips connected. “Mhmmm” you hummed into the kiss and you wrapped your arms around his neck to pull him closer. He tasted like pasta, which didn’t really come as a surprise for you.
Suddenly, the room flashed a bright white, stunning you and Lovi.
“Ohonhonhon~ I got ze photo!” Francis sang as he fiddled with his camera.
“Kesesese! Lovino’s getting lucky tonight!” Gilbert joined in with France on the laughter.
“Oh Lovino! You finally had your first kiss! I remember my first kiss….”
Spain kept babbling on and France and Prussia were laughing together.
Lovino growled and slammed the door on all three of their faces. “Now where were we?” you asked, smirking.
Lovino leant down to kiss you again.
“Remember Lovino! Don’t be silly, wrap das willy!” Prussia sniggered from outside the door.
“BASTARDOS!” Lovino yelled and grabbed the half eaten tomato and sprinted after them.
“Oh Lovi…” you chuckled as you joined in on the chase.
