We Could Be Something

114: It’s Only A Few Days

Peeking one of his eyes open, Iker let out a small sigh, his ears doused by the sound of Luca’s whimpers which emanated away from the monitor which stood on the night stand. It had been a few days, after Adriana had informed him that she was pregnant, they’d taken a couple of days to let the news settle in, but still Iker was more than excited, even if he knew that Adriana was a little worried about the idea of welcoming another baby so soon, part of him couldn’t wait to welcome the latest addition to their family.

Sparing a small yawn into his hand, he carefully turned onto his back before he turned his head, his dark eyes admiring Adriana who slept happily at his side. Quirking a small smile, he watched her sleep for a couple of seconds before he shifted down the bed slightly, moving to bunch up the shirt of his that she had fallen asleep in.

Ensuring that he hadn’t disturbed her, he pressed a soft kiss against the warm skin of her stomach before he carefully moved his hand, his thumb gently brushing the slight bump on her stomach. It had been a surprise, when they’d visited a midwife, they’d been informed that Adriana was almost 10 weeks into her pregnancy, but the idea thrilled Iker, even more so when they’d been shown a scan of their baby.

Pressing another soft kiss against the bump, he carefully pulled away from Adriana slightly before he moved to press a kiss against her forehead, something which made her stir a little before she snuggled up against her pillow once more, small snores falling out of her mouth. Iker chuckled a little before he shook his head. “I love you” he mumbled quietly “Both of you” he added before he pushed himself to his feet, quietly padding across the hall towards Luca’s bedroom.

Gently nudging the door open, he carefully stepped inside before he stepped towards the crib, offering the little boy a warm smile before he carefully lifted him into his arms. “We should go and get you some breakfast before we wake up your madre and your sister” he noted softly “I don’t think either one of them would be particularly please if we woke them up early” he added gently before he moved to step out of the room, making his way towards the kitchen.

“Were you going to wake me up at some point?”

Iker, who’d been feeding Olivia, jumped a little at the sound of Adriana’s voice before he lifted his head, offering her a small smile. “I was letting you lay in” he noted softly “I had everything with these two under control and I thought you’d appreciate the rest. Was that wrong?” he quipped, offering her a slightly boyish smile.

Adriana, who’d moved to pour herself a glass of juice, shook her head, a smile on her face. “It wasn’t” she noted softly “But you should have woken me sooner. You’re due at the airport in a little while” she added, sparing a small look towards the clock which sat on the wall.

Iker, who’d moved to wipe Olivia’s face, nodded his head gently. “I am” he confirmed softly “Are you still sure that you don’t want to come back with me?” he added, sparing a small look towards his wife. It had always been plan, with the new season approaching, Iker was due in Lyon for a few days before he flew out with the team for pre-season for a week, but Adriana had opted to spend some time in Porto before she returned home.

Adriana admired the soft look on his face for a couple of seconds before she shook her head, a small smile on her face. “You’re going to be gone for 10 days anyway” she noted softly “And I promised Ella and my papi that me and the children would spend a little while with them before we headed back to France. It’s only going to be a couple of weeks, Iker” she added, her hand gently moving to take a hold of his.

Iker spared a glance down towards their hands before he nodded his head, his thumb gently brushing over her hand softly. “I know” he noted softly “But, I kind of miss you when you’re not around” he added, his tone caught between playful and shy. He knew that she had a point, with the team due to travel for pre-season, he would still be away from Adriana and the children for a few days, but he wanted to limit the time, even if it was a little silly, he missed Adriana when she wasn’t around.

Adriana quirked a small smile at the soft tone of his voice before she lifted their hands, moving to press a soft kiss against the back of his hand. “I kind of miss you too when you’re not around” she played along softly “But, it’s only for a few days, Iker, and it’s not like we won’t call you every day. We’re going to be fine” she added, carefully moving to lift Olivia into her lap.

Iker offered her a slightly dubious look before he let out a small sigh, something which made Adriana smile before she carefully leant over, pressing a light kiss against his cheek. “We’re going to miss you too” she mumbled softly “But, before you know it, we’ll be at home in Lyon coming up with plans for a nursery for bump” she added, pressing another kiss against his skin.

Iker mulled her words over for a couple of seconds before he carefully shifted his hand, resting it against the front of her shirt. “I should really be packing” he noted softly “Are you sure that you’re going to be alright catching your flight tomorrow?” he posed, his thumb gently brushing against her shirt.

Adriana, who’d moved to rest Olivia on her hip, nodded. “I’ll be fine” she noted softly “Your papa is taking us to the airport and my papi is picking me up when we land. We’ll call you when we land” she added, offering him a reassuring smile.

Iker admired her smile for a couple of seconds before he nodded his head, something which made Adriana duck down, pressing a soft kiss against his lips. “Go, start packing” she mumbled, nudging him playfully.

Iker rolled his eyes playfully before he ducked in, stealing another couple of soft kisses before he stepped out of the room.

Adriana watched after him for a couple of seconds before she shook her head, wordlessly noting that thins between her and Iker would be fine.
