No warnings, just a bunch of fluff!
You tried to hide your yawn behind your coffee cup, but Alex noticed your emission of sleepiness and pouted.
“I told you we could have gotten a later flight!” he said.
“No no, it’s okay, I want to spend as much time there as possible it’ll be worth it, I’m just going to sleep on the plane.” You took a long drink of your coffee.
9 hours of flight and about 6 hours of nap later, you and Alex arrived at the airport in Italy. It was your first trip out of North America and you couldn’t wait to hear Alex speaking one of the several languages in which he fluent (not to mention all the great food.) You only had two weeks there before he had to be back for off season training. You couldn’t wait to see all the historical sights, swim at all the beaches, eat all the food and do all the shopping. Alex had a bad habit of spoiling you and you had a bad habit of letting him.
After your nap on the plane you were pretty well rested, so after a shower and change of clothes you were ready to take on the day. It was about 1pm when you two were finally ready to go out and you were absolutely starving. Finally time to try some of the authentic Italian food you had been looking at pictures of on the interest since Alex brought up the idea of a trip.
After a little bit of searching, you found one of the restaurants you had been looking at online. You got lucky, there was not much of a wait so you sat down right away and got served pretty quickly. “What would you like to drink mio amore” You swooned every time he spoke Italian even when it was just a couple words. Um something white, you know what I like.”
The waiter arrived and Alex ordered in flawless Italian. Once the waiter had walked away, you reached across the table and grabbed Alex’s hand. “That was seriously hot” you said smiling. He grinned back at you and squeezed your hand. “Grazie.”
After a delicious meal, you and your Italian speaking boyfriend decided to go for a walk around the town, taking in all the history and culture. Alex grabbed your hand as the two of you walked down the sunlit sidewalk, you couldn’t remember a time when you felt more content. You stopped at a park and sat down at a bench overlooking a body of water. There you sat and people watched, as other happy couples and individual people went about their days, also enjoying the beautiful weather. You looked over at Alex and noticed he was looking at you with a smile on his face. The look gave you butterflies.
“What do I have sauce on my face still or something?” you giggled. “Oh yeah just a little bit…” he leaned forward and kissed you. “Don’t worry I got it.”
You blushed a little, and looked around to make sure no one was looking at the two of you. You usually weren’t one for PDA but there was something about being in Italy with Alex that made you want to keep kissing him forever. You leaned forward and kissed him, a little longer than the first kiss, and you felt him smiling. “Are you sure you want to keep walking around this dumb ol’ town?” He asked smirking, “The hotel was really nice.” You grabbed his hand and pulled him off the bench to keep walking. “Yes I’m sure, we’ll have plenty of time to see the hotel later, let’s find some gelato and get to that shopping you promised me.”
You sat outside at a cafe table, finishing up your gelato. Alex had finished his a couple minutes previously and was tracing circles on your bare thigh under the table. It was giving you goosebumps and you knew what he was trying to do, but you had been looking forward to shopping in Italy for too long to go back to the hotel already. You had a weakness for shoes and you could not wait to get your hands on some fine Italian leather. Once you had finished up your gelato, you brushed away Alex’s hand and stood up to leave. He pouted a little at you ignoring his subtle advances, but followed after you towards the shops nonetheless.
“You look like a kid in a candy store” Alex laughed, once you walked into the shoppe. You only half heard him, you were so distracted by the beautiful shoes all throughout the store. You did not know where to start. “I’ll get you two pairs” Alex said “So don’t get too crazy.” You ignored him and walked to the back of the store towards a pair of black leather boots you could not leave the store without.
After the shoe store, you and Alex stopped at a couple more places and you got a couple more things. Alex’s limit on how many things he would by you was totally fake, but you could tell he was getting a little tired. You stopped shopping by dinner. “There was a nice looks restaurant at the hotel!” Alex suggested hopefully. “Okay I get it Alex, let’s go back to the hotel, I need to drop off these bags anyway.
Alex grabbed your waist and nuzzled your neck, “I’m not really hungry right now, I’ll need to do something else to work up an appetite” You blushed, and felt butterflies again. “Galchenyuk, you are incorrigible!”
