We Could Be Something

96: Two Years And Counting

“Are you sure that you don’t mind staying for the night?” Iker posed as he stepped into the living room, his dark eyes settling on his mother who sat on the couch, babbling happily to Olivia who sat beside her, showing off one of her favourite toys. It had been a little while, after he and Adriana had started to plan their wedding, a couple of months had past, and with their second anniversary having arrived, Iker was keen to spend the night with Adriana, something which had led to him inviting his parents over for a couple of days.

Carmen, who’d been contently talking to Oliva, jumped a little at the sound of Iker’s voice before she lifted her head, offering him a soft smile. “I wouldn’t have agreed to stay if I minded, Iker” she mused softly.

Iker, who’d moved to fix his tie, shook his head a little. “I know that, madre, but I just want to be sure. I’d hate to impose on you” he mused, offering her a soft look.

Carmen shook her head a little before she pushed herself to her feet, moving to fix the tie which he had skewed to one side. “You’re not imposing” she mused softly “I love spending time with Luca and Olivia and I am more than glad to take care of them tonight so that you and that lovely fiancée of yours can head out. It’s two years now, isn’t it?” she added as she smoothed out the collar of his shirt.

Iker quirked a soft smile before he nodded his head, moving to collect his jacket which sat on the back of the couch. “Two years and counting” he mused, wrapping his jacket around his shoulders.

Carmen admired the warm smile which filled his face before she shook her head, a small smile pulling at the corner of mouth. “You know, when you first introduced us to Adriana, I was worried for you” she mused softly.

Iker, who’d moved to sit beside Olivia, tilted his head a little. “You were?” he posed gently.

Carmen nodded her head softly. “I mean, she was pregnant when you met her and I was worried that you’d gotten yourself into the middle of something which had the potential to see you get hurt” she mused softly “But, after a couple of hours around the two of you, I could see that you were both so happy to be around one another and I am so glad that it worked out for you” she enthused warmly.

Iker mulled her words over for a couple of seconds before he quirked a small smile. “I am pretty glad it worked out too” he teased impishly.

“What worked out?”

Iker, who’d been looking towards his mother, jumped a little at the sound of Adriana’s voice before he lifted his head, his dark eyes settling on the blonde who stood in the doorway, smoothing out the material of the black dress she wore. “Us” he babbled softly “We…we worked out. You look amazing” he added, padding towards her slightly.

Adriana, who’d moved to collect her jacket, blushed a little. “You think?” she posed, chewing on her lip softly.

“I do” Iker confirmed “Are you ready to get out of here?” he added, offering her a soft smile.

Adriana nodded her head before she stepped past him, padding towards where Carmen sat. “Are you sure that you don’t mind watching these two tonight?” she posed, her fingertips gently brushing the blonde hair out of Olivia’s eyes.

“Not at all” Carmen mused softly “Me and my husband will be fine with the two of them and if something does happen, we’ll call the two of you, but you should go. Enjoy your anniversary” she enthused brightly.

Adriana offered her a slightly dubious look, wordlessly asking if she was sure, before she ducked down, pressing a soft kiss to the top of Olivia’s head. “I’ll see you later, little one” she mumbled softly before she stepped towards Iker, her hand gently taking a hold of his.

“You really do look spectacular tonight, Addie” Iker mumbled as he moved to take the seat beside her, his dark eyes peeking towards her gently. It had been a pleasant night, after their dinner had gone off without a hitch, they’d taken a small walk before they’d made their way towards a bar, and Iker had to admit that he was enjoying himself. Their night had been quiet, it had been intimate and romantic, and it was something Iker had missed a little since Olivia and Luca had arrived.

Adriana, who was sipping on her glass of wine, blushed a little before she shook her head. “You’ve said that” she teased softly.

Iker spared a small chuckle before he leant towards her, pressing a soft kiss against her cheek. “I can’t help it if I find you remarkably beautiful” he mumbled against her skin.

Adriana giggled a little before she playfully pushed him back, a warm smile on her face. “I can’t quite believe that we made it two years” she mused, her fingers playing with his shyly.

Iker watched their hands for a couple of seconds before he quirked a small smile. “I know the feeling” he mumbled “But they’ve been a pretty good two years, haven’t they?” he posed, his forehead resting against her temple.

“They have” she agreed softly “I mean, we’ve had our moments, but I am glad that we’ve made it this far” she added gently.

Iker quirked a small smile before he moved to collect his glass, proposing a toast. “Happy anniversary, Addie” he mumbled softly.

Adriana’s cheeks warmed a little before she tapped her glass against his. “Here’s to many more happy years” she enthused brightly.

Iker nodded his head in agreement before he pushed himself up to his feet, moving to wrap his jacket around his shoulders. “We should get out of here” he mused softly “I’ve booked us a hotel room for the night” he added, offering her a small smirk.

Adriana rolled her eyes playfully before she pushed herself to her feet, something which encouraged Iker to help her to wrap her coat around her shoulders before he moved to take a hold her hand, leading her out of the bar.

Adriana followed after him for a couple of steps before she pushed herself up onto her toes, pressing a soft kiss against his lips. “I love you so much” she mumbled as she ducked away from him.

Iker’s face lit up with a soft smile before he pressed another kiss against her lips, mumbling the same words in return, something which made Adriana rest her head against his shoulder. It had taken a little getting used to, after Adriana had met Iker, it had taken her a little time to get used to having him around, but she was glad that they had taken the chance on their relationship, even if it had had a few hiccups, she hoped that they had a lot more good years ahead of them.
