We Could Be Something

42: I Can See That

Pulling her blonde hair into a loose knot, Adriana moved to settle on the couch, her blue eyes peeking towards the laptop which sat on the coffee table ahead of her. It was quiet, with Olivia having been settled down for the night, the apartment seemed calm and quiet, and it relieved Adriana slightly, even if she did enjoy spending time with the little girl, she was glad that she was safely asleep for a little while. It had been a quiet day, with Iker away with Spain for internationals, Adriana had spent most of the day settled in her living room with Olivia for company, but she had enjoyed it. She had enjoyed having a little time for herself.

Pushing a little more hair out of her face, she spared the laptop a small look before Iker’s name appeared on the screen, something which made her smile a little. Shaking her head, she moved to accept the call before she leant back slightly, a teasing smirk appearing on her face. “You’ve been gone for all of a day” she quipped.

Iker rolled his eyes. “Can’t you just say hello?” he posed teasingly.

Adriana giggled a little before she shook her head. “Hello, Iker” she mused softly.

Iker spared a small laugh before he shook his head, a smile on his face. “Hola, Addie” he noted gently “How are you?” he added gently.

Adriana, who’d moved to get a little more comfortable on the couch, smiled a little. “I am Ok” she enthused “I’ve just gotten Olivia to go to sleep, so I have a little while to myself before I get to bed. What about you? How was training?” she posed gently.

“Training was good” Iker enthused “And seeing a few of these guys again has been good too. I’d never tell them, but I’ve missed them” he added with an impish grin.

Adriana admired the warm look on his face for a moment before the sound of someone calling Iker’s name caught her attention, causing her to tilt her head slightly. “Iker?” she quipped.

Iker offered a look towards the camera before he shifted a little, making a little room at his side. “I may have promised one of my friends that I would introduce you two should you call. Do you mind?” he posed gently. He knew that it was only a small thing, in the 6 months that they had been dating, they’d already met one another’s parents, but still he wanted to ensure that Adriana was comfortable with it, not wanting to make her feel awkward.

“You told your friends about me?” Adriana quipped, a small smirk on her face.

Iker shook his head. “I might have mentioned you” he quipped.

Adriana offered him a small smile before she nodded her head, wordlessly agreeing to meet his friend.

Iker smiled a little before he shifted over a little more, allowing Sergio to sit in the space at his side. “Addie, this is Sergio, he and I played together at Real Madrid” he introduced kindly “Sergio, this is my girlfriend, Adriana” he added.

Sergio glanced towards Iker before he looked towards the camera, waving his hand. “Hola, Adriana” he greeted warmly.

“Hola, Sergio” Adriana mused softly “It’s nice to finally get an introduction. Iker talks about you a lot” she grinned.

Sergio scoffed. “I bet it is nowhere near as much as he talks about you” he quipped “I swear, since he met you, you’re all he wants to talk about” he teased, offering a smirk towards Iker who rolled his eyes a little.

“I am?” Adriana quipped, a small giggle falling out of her mouth.

“You are” Sergio confirmed “He’s very smitten with you” he added with a smirk.

Adriana’s cheeks warmed a little at Sergio’s words before she shook her head. “I am pretty smitten with him too” she enthused softly.

Sergio quirked a warm smile before he nodded his head. “I can see that” he enthused softly “And I hope that I get to meet you in person soon. I can think of a few people who’d like to you, Adriana” he enthused warmly.

“I’d like that, Sergio” Adriana enthused softly.

“Adios, Adriana” Sergio noted kindly before he ducked out of the shot, allowing Iker to move ahead of the camera.

Adriana watched after the defender for a moment before she shook her head, offering a small smile towards Iker. “He seems nice” she noted softly.

“He is” Iker agreed gently “And he’s touched on something I’ve been meaning to ask” he added, peeking at her shyly.

Adriana tilted her head, wordlessly encouraging him to go on.

“I was just thinking” Iker quipped “I’m going to be away for a couple of weeks in the summer for the Euros, but I was thinking that afterwards, maybe you and Olivia would like to spend a little time in Madrid” he suggested, his tone slightly shy and nervous.

Adriana tilted her head. “Are you nervous?” she posed.

Iker shrugged, something which made Adriana smile a little. “Iker, I’d love that” she noted softly.

Iker blinked a couple of times. “You would?” he posed.

“Of course I would” Adriana smiled “Iker, I’d love to see Madrid. I’d love to meet more of your friends” she enthused brightly.

Iker offered her a slightly dubious look, wordlessly checking if she was sure, before the sound of Sergio’s voice echoed, causing him to sigh a little. “I have to go” he noted gently “But I’ll call you tomorrow night?” he offered gently.

“I’d like that” Adriana enthused softly “Goodnight, Iker” she added, blowing a soft kiss at the screen.

“Buenos noches, Addie” Iker replied softly before he ended the call.

Adriana glanced at the blank screen for a moment before she moved to pack up the laptop, stowing it away before she padded back towards the couch, resting her head back for a little while before the sound of the doorbell reached her ears, causing her to let out a little sigh. It wasn’t overly late, Iker’s call had come earlier than she had been anticipating, but still she was a little irked, wanting nothing more than to relax for a little while before she headed to bed.

Shaking her head, she pushed herself up to her feet and padded towards the door, pulling it open. “How can I help you?” she posed without looking up.

Jonathan, who stood on the other side of the door, spared a small sigh before he shook his head. “I was sort of hoping that we could talk” he noted.

Adriana, who’d been staring at her feet, startled at the sound of his voice before she lifted her head, a small lump forming in her throat. It had crossed her mind, after his parents’ visit, the prospect of Jonathan showing up had briefly crossed Adriana’s mind, but still she was more than slightly surprised to see him.
