Super Sappy Lines Prompt List -- “Can I kiss you?” Aria and Tela ^3^
Awww Auntie x Niece fluff time ♥ Fits into current timeline of Misadventures
“Can I kiss you?”
Aria pauses in reading her email to blink at the child, surprised.
Tela blinks innocently back.
“What?” she manages after a moment, attention now entirely on her niece.
“Can I kiss you?” the little Angara turns slightly in her lap, face a mask of innocence and curiosity, “Unca Jaal always does, and Nana says it’s a way to show affection, so…”
“Hmm…” Aria bites her lip for a moment, automatically bouncing Tela a little as she thinks, making the child giggle, “Well, that’s true, but the type of kiss depends on your relationship.”
“Where do your mommy and daddy kiss each other, hun?”
“Um…” Tela’s face scrunches for a moment before lighting up, “The lips!”
“Right! And where do they kiss you?”
“My head, or my cheek.”
“That’s right!” Aria gives her another bounce, smiling, “And where have you seen Unca Jaal kiss me?”
“The lips!” the child answers immediately.
“Right! So a kiss on the lips is for married couples, or couples who are together. A kiss on the cheek-” she pauses to press her lips to the child’s cheek in example, earning more giggles, “-or forehead-” again she demonstrates, pressing a kiss just above the ridge of her cowl, “-is for other family members, or close friends.”
“Like an Auntie!” Tela exclaims, giddy.
“Like an Auntie.” Aria agrees, smiling proudly.
“Can I kiss you on the cheek, Auntie?”
“Of course, hun.”
Tela’s chest puffs out proudly for a moment before she pushes up, pecking Aria on the cheek and grinning widely, “Did I do it right, Auntie?”
“Perfect, kiddo.” Aria bends back down to press her forehead briefly to the child’s before kissing her crest again - and then catching her by surprise with her fingers dancing along her sides, laughing as Tela squeals and giggles under the assault.
“Auntie stop! Tickles!” Tela is laughing loudly despite the protest, leaning slightly away in an attempt to escape, happy static dancing along her skin.
“Never!” Aria teases, sliding off the chair so that they’re sitting on the floor, halting her tickling after another moment and humming as the child settles happily against her chest, “Okay, Tela?”
“Okay, Auntie.” Tela squirms into a comfortable position - carefully avoiding pressing to hard on her belly, Aria notices, and pride in the little girl flares - and settles down, still smiling. “Unca and Nana back soon?”
“Mhm. They went to get us lunch.”
Tela makes a quiet noise, and Aria presses another kiss to her head, content to sit there until Jaal and Sahuna return.
