July 11th, 2012
You stared intently at your calendar. Today was a day you had been looking forward to for quite some time. Yes, it was Wednesday, but more importantly, it was a holiday. It was Cheer Up the Lonely Day
You had been planning this day out for weeks. OK, so it was no secret that you had a
quirk, when it came to odd holidays. You celebrated all of the strange holidays with your friends, and today would be no different. In fact, you knew exactly whom you wanted to celebrate this holiday with.
Yes, Lovino Vargas! He was your good friend Feliciano Vargas's older brother. Lovino was
to put it nicely; he was kind of a hothead. He always cursed, mainly at his brother, and he also complained a lot. Not like it was a bad
Well, it was bad, but not to you. You actually liked it, and even thought it was
There was something about Lovino. Even though he acted like a jerk, he was actually very nice. He had a soft spot for girls. You always loved how he would curse out Feliciano, and then as soon as he saw you, he'd blush one hundred shades of red, and be the sweetest guy ever. There were some instances where he'd say some mean things to you
but only sometimes.
Anyways, Lovino was one of the loneliest friends you had. Because of his silver tongue, not a lot of people hung out with him. Plus
a lot of people put Feliciano over Lovino, which made you really sad. So, you were going to dedicate this entire day to him! You checked the weather on your phone, hoping the day would be perfectjust like you planned. It was going to be in the low 70's in the morning and afternoon, but it was going to rain later on in the evening.
so much for evening plans
" You said to yourself.
You dialed Lovino's number and waited patiently for him to pick up. The phone rang a few times, and then you finally heard a voice.
"Antonio?" You were surprised to hear Antonio's voice on the other end of Lovino's phone. There was no way Lovino would give his phone to Antonio.
"Ah! Chica, it's muy beuno to hear from you!~" Antonio chirped. Every time you called Antonio, you always ended up being on the phone with him for longer than you wanted. He just really loved chatting.
"It's nice to hear from you, too, Toni. Is Lovino there?" There was a bit of silence, and you could tell that Antonio was smiling through the phone.
"Lovi!~ Your girlfriend is calling!~" Antonio sang. That made you blush quite a bit.
"A-Antonio!" You screamed into your phone. You could hear Lovino cursing at the Spaniard through the line. Antonio knew about your feelings for the temperamental Italian, and he always teased you about it. He always said you should just tell Lovino how you felt, but you knew it would ruin everything if you did.
"You Goddamn tomato bastard! She's not my girlfriend!" Lovino sneered. You couldn't help but giggle. "__-__________...what do you want?" He asked. There it was again. Every time he spoke to you, his tone softened and he cursed less.
"I-I was wondering if you wanted to spend the d-day together?" There was a small silence after you asked that, and you were worried he would say 'no'.
-Gah! Y-you damn bastard! Give that back!" Lovino yelled. You weren't sure what was going on, so you just waited patiently.
"Ah, chica!~ Lovi would be muy happy to spend the day with you!"
"T-tomato bastard! Don't call me that! And give me back my goddamn phone-"
"Ve!~ Hug therapy! Hug therapy!"
"Get the hell off of me you garlic smelling bastard!"
"H-he'll be there in fifteen minutes
" Antonio said with a sigh.
"I-I see. Thank you, Toni." You hung up your phone and sighed. Those three were definitely very odd. That was the thing, though. Feliciano and Antonio were the only people Lovino ever hung out with. Well
and you, but you weren't important. He needed more friends. Lovino was such an amazing person; he definitely deserved more friends.
Around fifteen minutes after your crazy phone call; you heard a knock on your door. You raced down your stairs and opened your front door, only to be greeted by the infamous Lovino Vargas. Well
he was infamous to you.
"Good morning, Lovi!~" You chirped as you rocked yourself back and forth on your heels. Lovino blushed madly and turned his head away, mumbling something inaudible. "What was that?~" You asked playfully. There was no denying that you loved teasing him.
"D-don't call me that, and why the hell did you invite me over?" You could tell he was still irritated from being around his brother and Antonio.
"I wanted to spend the day with you
" You pouted and looked to your feet. There was no way Lovino would be able to resist you now.
Lovino grunted and grabbed your wrist. "F-fine." He said with a sigh. He yanked you out the door in a way that made you believe he was excited to spend time with you, but you quickly brushed that notion off. "Where did you want to go, anyway?" He asked once the two of you were outside your house.
"Well, I was thinking we could get some gelatos and go to the park
" You looked to the ground and thought about it some more. There was no way Lovino would want to go anywhere with you. He surely had better things to do
"Huh? R-really!?" You looked up at Lovino, and giggled. His face was completely flushed.
"Y-yes really, and what the hell are you laughing at!?" He turned his face away in a horrible attempt to hide his blushing features.
"N-nothing!~ Come on, let's go!" You said as you stifled more giggles. Lovino sighed and followed closely behind you.
Today was going to be great!
The two of you were enjoying some delicious gelatos, and walking around the park. It was absolutely beautiful outside, but you could see a few rainclouds in the distance. It was also quite windy.
"Hey, ___________. It's hot and I'm tired. Let's sit down where there's shade." Lovino placed the cup his gelato was held in against his cheek. The coldness of the Italian ice gave him only a short amount of coolness.
"Alright." You giggled at his face. He looked so adorable with the cup against his cheek. Plus
he had a really funny expression put on. "How about over there?" You pointed to a giant tree. Its trunk was big enough for the two of you to sit against, and it casted a very large shadow.
"Yeah. That's fine." Lovino walked over to the tree as fast as you had ever seen him walk.
"Sheesh, Lovi. The tree isn't going anywhere!~" You teased as you walked over to the tree as well. Lovino blushed brightly and frowned.
d-dammit, ___________. D-don't call me that
You sighed and leaned against the tree. It was very shady under the tree, and you felt really sleepy. You closed your eyes, and daydreamed as the wind blew and children played on the playground near by.
"Pthp!~" Your nose twitched and you blew on your tongue. There was something tickling your face, and it had gotten into your mouth. "Bleh! Ah
.I think I got thome hair in my mouf." You held your tongue out as you spoke, causing a sort of speech impediment. You had expected Lovino to start laughing at you, but he didn't. Actually, when you turned your head to look at him, his face was completely red. "Awe you OK, Lovio?" You blushed and slipped your tongue back into your mouth. "S-sorry. Um
are you aright?"
Lovino frowned and mumbled something inaudible to you.
w-what was that
?" You felt very nervous. He was acting so strange
" He whispered. You were surprised the Italian could keep his voice so quiet.
"H-huh?" You looked to your left, and noticed the gravity defying curl that always stuck stubbornly on Lovino's head. "Oh
" You sighed and blew the curl away from you, only to have Lovino shudder and blush brightly from the action. You couldn't help but feel suspicious. "Hey, Lovino. What's up with that curl? You never let me touch it, and when I do, you always shudder and act weird." You furrowed your brows, and puffed your cheeks as you waited for his answer.
"D-don't worry about it
" He said after a few minutes. He turned his head away from you, and you could feel the heat radiating from his face.
I want to worry about it!" You grabbed and pulled the strand of hair in an attempt to get his attention, and what happened next surprised and humored you quite a bit.
"CHIGI!" Lovino yelled before pushing you onto the grass and pinning your arms down. You blushed twelve shades of red at least
w-what are you d-doing
?" He looked down at you, probably blushing just as much as you were. You looked into his golden eyes, and he looked into your [e/c] orbs.
don't touch it
" Lovino huffed as the blush on his face increased. What in the world did he mean by 'not here'?
w-when can I touch it?" You asked, somewhat hesitantly.
Lovino bit his lip, and turned his head away; still blushing a million shades. You waited patiently for him to get off of you, and when he finally did, he turned away from you and was silent. You sat back up, and leaned your body against the tree, waiting for Lovino to answer your question.
"___________...why did you invite me out today
?" He sounded really upset, which was weird. He never really got sad
there are two reasonsone that I can't tell you. The other reason, I can, though."
"Alright. Then tell me." He averted his gaze to you, and you blushed. His expression was very
today's July 11th!"
"What the hell is so great about July 11th?" He paused immediately after saying that. "O-oh crap
I-I didn't forget your birthday, did I?" You frowned and lightly punched him in the arm.
"No! But now that you mentioned it
when is my birthday?" You crossed your arms and squinted your eyes menacingly at him.
"Oh forget it! That's not the reason, anyway, so just forget it!"
"Then what the hell is
"It's Cheer Up the Lonely Day!" You flung your arms in the air and pouted, as if he were supposed to know about this ridiculous holiday.
"Why the hell would I
why you wanted to spend the day with me?"
You nodded nervously and Lovino sighed. He looked away from you and everything was silent for a while.
I remember your
" You said softly after a few minutes. You said it in sort of mocking
or whining voice. Plus, you pouted while saying that, just to make Lovino feel even worse.
"Oh really? Then when is i-"
"March 17th." You replied quickly.
dammit..." He looked into the distance with an unreadable expression on his face.
" You sighed and closed your eyes, hoping to daydream a little bit longer.
"What was the other reason
?" His gaze returned to you, and you blushed lightly at the question you did not
want to answer.
"I-it was nothing
don't worry about it
" You said, feeling somewhat melancholy.
Lovino smirked and scooted closer to you. "But I want
to worry about it." He said, mocking your tone from earlier when you had said the same thing about his curl.
"I-I'll tell you
you tell me what's up with that curl!" You pointed at the stubborn curl on his head, and smirked. You were feeling quite triumphant. Lovino blushed slightly, and then thought about it for a bit.
"F-fine. But n-not here
" There he goes again, saying that! What in the world does he mean by it?
"Fine. It's supposed to rain anyway. We can just go back to your house-"
"N-no! The tomato and garlic bastard won't leave us alone i-if we do
then I guess we can go to my house
that would be b-better
" You looked at Lovino with a bit of suspicion, but quickly brushed any negative feelings off. After all
what could he possible do?
The two of you arrived at your house, soaking wet. Yeah
that forecast was a bit off. The rain came a few hours early; and it came hard.
" Lovino sneered.
"Ahahah! You're all wet!~"
"Sh-shut the hell up!"
Lovino shook his head in an attempt to get the water out of his hair, and you did the same. You couldn't help but notice that stubborn curl on his head. Even with his hair being soaked
it was still floating there
I'm gonna get a towel
" You went into your bathroom, got a clean towel, and threw it over your head. "You can use this when I'm done with it!~" You walked into your living room, and sat on the couch as you rubbed the towel across your scalp. Lovino scowled, walked into your living room, and sat next to you. He slumped on the couch and crossed his arms. His face was absolutely adorable. Complete irritation was his expression. Priceless.
"Don't be like that, Lovi!~" You said teasingly.
"D-don't call me that!" Lovino turned his back towards you, and hugged his legs against his chest. He was being so adorable.
"Aw, don't be like that, Lovi
!~" You scooted closer to him, and put the towel on his head.
"W-what the hell are you d-doing!?" Lovino jumped up slightly and attempted to swing his head around to look at you.
"Stupid. I'm drying your hair
" You said bluntly.
"I-I can dry my own Goddamn hair! So get the hell-" You felt Lovino tense up as he silenced himself completely. Bewildered by his sudden silence, you stopped drying his hair, and stared at the back of his head for a while.
? A-are you alright
?" You asked, moving your fingers over the towel. All you wanted to do was dry his hair for him
When you moved your fingers, you could feel him tense up again.
"__-__________...y-you never t-told me
the other r-reason
" Lovino said, panting slightly. He was certainly acting weird
never told me why I'm not allowed to touch that curl!" You retorted swiftly and coldly. Lovino was quiet for a bit, and you felt triumphant once again.
" Lovino turned around and faced you, his face completely tinted scarlet. "I-It's best if I-I show y-you
" He breathed as he tried to fight off the stubborn blush on his cheeks. "Go ahead. P
really? He was actually giving you permission
to pull it? His intentions seemed a bit shady
You did always want to pull it. He never let you, and you usually respected him enough to not pull it.
but d-don't get mad at me!"
"Of course I won't, idiot. I'm s-saying you can."
You swallowed a lump in your throat, and nodded nervously. There had to be a reason why he didn't let you touch the curl
you were about to find out what that reason was.
You carefully gripped the base of the curl, and just from that small action Lovino grimaced. Still slightly suspicious, you stroked the piece of hair slowly, until you reached the end of it. Apparently
that wasn't a good idea.
"AGH! L-Lovino-" You were pushed off of the couch, and onto the floor by Lovino, who, by the way, also decided to mash his lips into yours. Words couldn't describe the utter shock you felt but
at the same time, you absolutely loved it.
Unfortunately for you, Lovino pulled away immediately after he interlocked his lips with yours. "A-agh! G-Goddammit, ____________! I-I said pull it, n-not seduce
me!" His face was still so close to yours
his cheeks were very, very red. Antonio was right
look like a tomato!
what do y-you mean
seduce you!?" You breathed. You were panting heavily, and your heart was beating harder than a drum. Who could really blame you, though? He had you completely pinned down on the floor.
" He stopped mid sentence and looked away, biting his lip. The blush on his face was so dark and warm. It was absolutely adorable.
"It's your what?~" You asked, giving the curl another playful tug. You were expecting (hoping) he would kiss you again, but he didn't. Instead you got a slightly more interesting reaction from him.
!~" He moaned loudly. You were stunned. All you had to do was tug the curl, and he'd shut up, moan, or do whatever.
"L-Lovino!? W-what does the curl d-do!?" You screamed questioningly.
It's my e-erogenous z-zone
Lovino got off of you, and sat next to you, blushing a million shades of red. "N-now you
have to tell me
the o-other reason from earlier
" Damn. You had completely forgotten about that.
" You sat up, and thought about how to word your feelings for him. It couldn't be too hard to tell Lovino you loved him. He must have some
feelings for you
he did just kiss you a while ago. "I
I wanted t-to hang out with you today
" You exhaled, and inhaled in an attempt to calm yourself, and looked straight into Lovino's golden eyes. "I love you
There was a long and awkward silence for a while, and you assumed he didn't feel the same way. "I-I'm sorry
" You said solemnly.
Lovino scooted close to you, and looked you right in the eyes. "T
" He breathed lightly, before kissing you. Your face heated profusely, but you soon kissed him back, releasing all of the passion you had for him in this one, simple action.
Once the two of you pulled away from each other, Lovino rested his forehead against yours, and closed his eyes. You, being the mischievous girl you are, decided to give his curl a good tug. "CHIGI!" Lovino yelled, as he abruptly fell onto his back. You giggled at the expression that adorned his features, and he frowned. "____________...w-why did you do that
"S-sorry, Lovi. I just love how you react when I pull it
" You said with another giggle. Lovino smirked.
"I dare you to pull it again." Lovino said both huskily, and challengingly. Did he
want you to pull it? You were completely bewildered at this point. First he says don't touch it, now he's challenging you to touch it? Well, challenge accepted. You gripped the curl, and pulled on it roughly
Happy Cheer Up the Lonely Day, Lovi... Guys, this WILL be continued. So please stop pestering me. I AM continuing it. Don't ask me in the comments if I am. Because I'm telling you now, I AM continuing it. Thank you.
