We Could Be Something

47: If You’re Sure

Pulling his gloves off of his hands, Iker tossed them into his locker before he moved to sit down, resting his head back for a second. It had been a long morning, with the season drawing to a close, the training sessions seemed longer and harder, and as much as Iker wanted to see the team succeed, he was glad that the session was over, wanting nothing more than to head home and relax for a little while. Closing his eyes, he rested his head against his locker for a second before he sat up, moving to pull his shirt over his head.


Iker, who’d moved to pull a clean t-shirt on, startled at the sound of his name before he lifted his head, offering a look towards Hector who stood a little away from him. “Huh?” he posed.

Hector quirked an amused smile at the look on the keepers face before shook his head. “You have visitors” he noted gently “They’re waiting out in the front office for you when you’re ready” he added before he padded towards his locker.

Iker frowned a little at the other man’s words before he moved to finish getting changed, pulling his kit bag onto his shoulder. It was unusual, since Adriana had started her maternity leave, Iker tended to head to her apartment once he was finished with training, and the idea that he had visitors had caught him a little off guard. He had been hoping to head home and relax for a little while.

Ensuring that he had placed everything into his kit bag, he said a quick goodbye to his teammates before he padded out into the front office, his dark eyes softening a little at the sight of Adriana who was stood beside the desk, cooing softly to Olivia who sat in her arms. It had been a little while, since Jonathan had first met Olivia, almost two weeks had past, and whilst it still felt tense whenever he was around, Iker was slowly getting used to it, even if he still didn’t like the idea of spending a lot of time with the other man, he was starting to get used to the idea that he was going to be around for a while.

Quirking a small smile, he admired Adriana for a second before he quietly stepped up beside her, pressing a gentle kiss against her cheek. “Hola” he mumbled.

Adriana, who had been babbling quietly to Olivia, jumped a little at the feel of his lips on her cheek, something which made Iker shake his head. “What are you doing here?” he posed gently.

Adriana shrugged. “It’s been a little while since we left the apartment and we figured you’d not mind it if we surprised you. Are you not happy to see us?” she mused, offering him a teasing smile.

Iker offered her a small look before he shook his head, a small smile appearing on his face. “What did you have planned?” he posed.

“I was thinking that we could head out for lunch. It’s been a little while, no?” she quipped as she moved to take his hand, leading him towards the exit.

Iker spared a small look at their hands before he quirked a small smile, more than a little excited by the prospect of heading out to lunch with his girlfriend.

“So, what do you want to do now?” Adriana posed as padded alongside Iker, offering him a soft smile. It had been a pleasant afternoon, after she and Olivia had surprised Iker, they’d headed to one of their favourite restaurants for lunch, and whilst it had been a spur of the moment decision, Adriana was pleased that they’d done it. It had been a little while, with people still dropping by to see Olivia and Jonathan’s visits, it had been some time since she and Iker had spent some time together, and she wanted to make the effort, even if it was only lunch. She wanted to spend some time with him.

“You don’t want to just head back to yours?” Iker posed, offering her a small smile.

“We could do that” Adriana noted “But I think we should go for a walk first. Olivia always sleeps better after a walk” she quipped a small look towards the little girl who laid in her pram, her blue eyes blinking tiredly.

Iker spared a small look towards the little girl before he nodded his head, a small smile on his face. “OK” he agreed softly “But when you eventually decided that you want to head back to yours, let me know. I’ll need to stop by my place to pick up a few things” he added, pushing Olivia’s pushchair ahead of him.

Adriana, who walked alongside him, nodded her head a little before she spared him a small look, her teeth nibbling on her lip gently. “You know” she mumbled softly “I am sure that we can find some space at my place for some of your things” she suggested softly. It had been on her mind for a little while, the prospect of her and Iker moving in together, but still she was nervous about suggesting it, even if they had been together for a while, part of her worried that he would think she was trying to move things along too quickly.

Iker titled his head. “You want more of my stuff in your place?” he quipped, a teasing grin on his face.

Adriana shrugged. “I kind of like having you around” she noted “And since Olivia arrived, you spend almost every night in my apartment. I know that it is still a little soon, but I was thinking that maybe we could start looking into you moving in” she babbled softly.

Iker, who’d been pushing Olivia’s pram ahead of him, blinked a couple of times before he tilted his head. “What?” he posed gently.

“You spend most nights at my place” Adriana babbled, her cheeks tinting a little pink “But I understand if it is too soon. We’ve only been together for a few months and I’d get it if you wanted to hold off for a little while” she added.

Iker blinked a couple of times, trying to keep pace with her words, before he shook his head, a small smile playing at the corner of his mouth. “Addie” he mused softly, his hand gently moving to take hers “Are you sure?”” he breathed.

Adriana, who’d been watching her feet, lifted her head, offering him a small smile. “Certain” she noted softly “I mean, I know it’s soon, but I know what I want” she added, her fingers messing with her hair nervously.

Iker watched her for a moment, checking her expression for any sign of uncertainty, before he quirked a small smile. "If you're sure, then I would love to move in, Addie" he breathed gently.

Adriana offered him a small look before she leant towards him, pressing a soft kiss against his lips which made him a little. It was soon, it had only been a matter of months since Adriana and Iker had started to see one another, but he was confident that the timing was right, even if things were a little complicated, he was more than happy to starting making steps forwards.
