Drabble me please? "I've never felt anything like that." Sabine unofficially adopting Adrien and Chloe.
“I’ve never felt anything like that,” Chloe said quietly as Adrien joined her by the balcony railing. “I needed a break as sad as that is.”
He chuckled softly. “It can be a lot to take in at first.”
“But in a good way.”
They stayed quiet for a few moments, watching cars pass by on the street below.
“If you tell anyone this, I will end you, Adrikins, but I’ve always been kind of jealous of Marinette.”
Adrien smiled wryly. “You don’t say.”
“It’s just…she shouldn’t be the one who gets everything, you know? It’s not fair. I’m the mayor’s daughter. I’m rich and pretty and…” Chloe trailed off. “None of that matters here and I love and hate it.”
“It takes a little getting used to,” Adrien admitted. “Mari and Alya and Nino, it was different for them growing up. This is the way family is supposed to be.” He glanced back at the skylight. “But it feels good, doesn’t it? To be accepted just because. No strings attached, nothing expected.”
“I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop.”
“Believe me, there’s a little part of me that’s been waiting on it for years.”
Chloe chuckled bitterly. “We’re sad, aren’t we?”
“Just a little.”
They both turned when the skylight slid open. Sabine poked her head out with a kind smile. “Dessert is ready if you two are interested in something sweet.”
“You’re already so sweet, I don’t know if I can handle anymore,” Adrien winked.
Sabine laughed. “Be careful, Adrien, your Chat is showing.”
He flushed and Chloe nudged his side with a grin. “We’ll be right down. Thank you.”
“Is seventeen too old to beg for adoption?” Chloe asked with a small smile. “I need that woman to smile at me like that everyday. It makes me feel warm and happy.”
“It’s kind of the best, right? There’s only one thing that’s better…” He trailed off and Chloe followed his gaze to the skylight where Marinette had appeared with a bright smile.
“Did Mom tell you guys the cake is ready?”
“We’ll be right down, my Lady.”
She smiled at him, eyes twinkling. “Okay, I took care of all the kwami meals. See you guys in a few minutes.”
Marinette disappeared again and Chloe rolled her eyes and smirked. “Fine, I’ll look into adoption on my own. Looks like you’ve already got your in for this family.”
Adrien’s blush returned. “I’m working on it.”
