We Could Be Something

64: More To Come

Running a brush through her hair, Adriana spared a soft look towards the mirror which stood ahead of her, her blue eyes studying her appearance quietly. It had been a little while, after she and Iker had shared the news of the impending new arrival with their parents, a couple of weeks had passed, and with their first anniversary falling on a match day, they’d opted to celebrate it that night, something which excited Adriana slightly, even if they did only plan to head out for dinner, part of her was more than a thrilled by the thought of celebrating their first anniversary.

Offering her a reflection another look, she carefully smoothed out the material of her dress before she shifted her hand towards her bump, a small smile tugging at the corner of her mouth. It still felt a little strange, the idea that she was pregnant again so soon after Olivia had arrived, but she had to admit that she was happy about the prospect of welcoming the new baby, even if it did seem a little quick. Part of her was already counting down the days until the baby arrived.

“Are you nearly ready to go?”

Adriana, who’d moved to collect her shoes from the foot of the bed, startled a little at the sound of Iker’s voice before she stood up, offering him a small smile. “I just need to put my shoes on and find a coat” she noted gently “How was Olivia when you dropped her off with Ella?” she added, moving to sit on the side of the bed.

“She was a little fussy when we first arrived, but she settled down quickly” Iker mused, leaning against the frame of the door.

“And Ella was OK with watching her?” Adriana posed.

Iker nodded. “She seemed to be” he noted softly “She told me to tell you that she would call if she needed anything, but she wants you to enjoy your night” he added.

Adriana nodded her head a little before she pushed herself to her feet, offering him a small half-smile. “How do I look?” she posed gently.

Iker allowed his eyes to travel up and down her frame for a couple of seconds before he quirked a small smile, taking a couple of steps towards her. “You look beautiful, Addie” he mused warmly, his arms softly wrapping around her waist.

Adriana’s cheeks warmed a little at the compliment before she pushed herself up onto her toes, stealing a soft kiss.

Iker smiled into the kiss for a couple of seconds before he ducked back slightly. “We ought to get moving” he noted softly “We’ve got a reservation to keep” he added, extending his hand back towards her.

Adriana offered him a small smile before she moved to knot their fingers together, following him out of the room.

“So, have you given any more thought to the idea of finding us a bigger place to live?” Iker posed softly, his dark eyes peeking towards Adriana who sat opposite him, sipping on the mug of tea which sat in her hands. It had been a pleasant evening, the two of them had enjoyed a quiet and pleasant dinner, and Iker had to admit that he was pleased, even if they’d only headed out to a quiet dinner, he was glad that they’d done something to mark their first anniversary.

Adriana, who’d been subtly checking her phone, startled a little at the sound of his voice, something which made him chuckle softly. “Were you not listening to me?” he quipped, a teasing smile on his face.

Adriana rolled her eyes playfully. “I was just telling Ella that we should be by soon to pick up Olivia” she noted “Did you say something important?” she added, a slightly teasing grin on her face.

Iker quirked a small smile before he shook his head. “It can keep for a little while” he noted gently “I should get us the check and then we can go and collect Olivia before we head home” he added, motioning towards the waiter.

Adriana watched him for a couple of a seconds before she moved to pick up her coat, wrapping it around her shoulders.

“Did you want to go straight back to the car?” Iker posed, moving to settle some money down onto the table.

“What did you have in mind?” Adriana quipped.

“I was just thinking that we could go for a walk” Iker mused, wrapping his own jacket around his shoulders “But, if you wanted to head straight back to the car, we can do that” he babbled softly.

Adriana smiled a little at the tone of his voice before she stepped towards him, pressing a soft kiss against his cheek. “I think a walk sounds like a wonderful idea” she mused softly.

Iker offered her a look, wordlessly enquiring whether or not she was sure, before he nodded his head, his hand taking a hold of hers.

Adriana spared a small look down towards their hands before she pressed another kiss against his cheek, something which made Iker squeeze her hand gently.

Padding through the park, Adriana wrapped her arms around herself a little, trying to stifle the urge to shiver. It had been a little while, after they’d left the restaurant, she and Iker had spent a little while walking through the park, and Adriana had to admit that it had been nice, even if she was a little cold, she had enjoyed herself.

Iker, who was following after her, watched her for a couple of seconds before he carefully shrugged out of his coat, moving to wrap it around her shoulders, something which made her jump a little. “What are you doing?” she posed softly.

“I’m giving you my jacket” Iker quipped softly “You look cold” he added gently.

Adriana offered him a dubious look before she tugged the material around her a little more, something which made Iker shake his head. “We should probably think about getting back to the car soon” he mused softly.

Adriana nodded her head in agreement before she pushed herself up onto her toes, pressing a soft kiss against his lips. “Happy first anniversary, Iker” she mumbled, pulling away from him slightly.

Iker smiled a little at the words before he pressed a kiss to the side of her head, returning the words quietly. It felt a little odd, the idea that he and Adriana had made it through a year, but he was pleased that they had, even if there had been a couple of ups and downs, he was proud that they had made it as far as they had. It had taken a little work, with Olivia around and Jonathan’s reappearance, it had taken Iker some time to get used to being with Adriana, but he was confident that they’d make it work for a while longer.
