‘So, when are you going back to Ziwa Bonde?’ ‘In a week.’ ‘Oh okay,’ Leila sighed. ‘It means I’ll not be seeing you for - what? - a few months?’ ‘Lei, come with me?’ Her eyes widened and she stared down at him. ‘Where… to Africa? But… You have work there and you will not be able to take any time off to do anything with me.
I…I don’t want to be a burden to you.’ ‘Please, be a burden! I’d love it, besides Remy and Ves are always glad to see new volunteers,’ he smiled gently. She smiled back and nodded. ‘Ok. But what can I do?’ ‘We will figure something out.
We are always in need of people to clean the animals shit in cages, you know?’ Leila rolled her eyes. ‘Very funny. You are -’ he stopped her with a kiss.
I sighed closing the door to the house, today was a long day and all I wanted to do right now was sleep. However as I walked past the kitchen I realized that sleep wasn’t even close to what I could do. Groaning I set my bag down, and tied up my hair as I begun to wash dishes.
As I continued to wash the dishes, it seemed like it was never ending because every time I washed a dish more would appear like it was some sort of sorcery. And at some point in my mind I just said, “Fuck it!” throwing the sponge in the sink I stormed through the house looking for one person in particular.
When I walked past the game room, I heard laughing and stopped. Taking a look inside I saw exactly who I was looking for. I slammed the door open and it ended up hitting the wall. Cristiano jumped slightly and turned around giving me a smile, “Hey babe”
I raised an eyebrow, “Don’t you hey babe me” I told him
Cristiano stood up and made his way over to give me a kiss when I stopped him, “What’s wrong?” He asked
“What’s wrong Cristiano? How about I’ve been working late shifts every night since the last two weeks, and when I come home I come home to dishes that seem to be multiplying every second. You’re home since 4 o’clock you can’t wash the dishes?Are your hands broken or some shit?” I asked
Cristiano stared at me in shock, “I’m sorry, you feel that way but there’s nothing I can do about your late shifts” He said trying to be funny
I gave him a blank stare, “I’m not fucking around Cristiano”
He sighed, “Alright I’m sorry, but I don’t know what you want me to do honestly. The house stuff is all your job, I just fix things and play soccer” Cristiano said turning around
“So you’re saying house chores are for women alone?”
Cristiano quickly turned around, “Well I mean-”
I scoffed, “Fuck you Cristiano”
“Y/N come on”
I pushed his hands away, “No seriously fuck you, I do some much shit and you don’t do anything minus play video games when you’re not on the field or at practice.”
“And what do you do at work? You’re a nurse, you just assist the damn doctors all day and you’re here yelling at me!”
I stared at him, “So that’s what you think I do all day? I have to fucking deal with other ignorant ass people and then come home and deal with the fucking king of ignorance” I yelled at him
“And how do you think it is with you?! You’re the same way!You never stop nagging and you’re just as ignorant as I am”
I groaned in frustration, and walked out of the game room. Fine! He doesn’t want to hear my nagging, he won’t have to hear it anymore then.
~The Next Day
When I woke up, I didn’t even bother making breakfast and just grabbed a bowl of cereal I sat down at the table and scrolled through the news on my phone. After a little while, Cristiano woke up and looked around. “You didn’t make breakfast?” He asked
I didn’t say anything and placed my bowl in the sink. Cristiano raised an eyebrow, “Hello? Am I speaking into the air?” He asked again
I walked past him and he reached out grabbing my arm but missing. I just continued walking to the room and getting ready to go to work, grabbing my keys I walked out into the garage. “Y/N, hey I haven’t seen you in a while?”Marcelo said
I smiled giving him a hug, “It has been how are the boys?” I asked
Cristiano looked between us with his mouth open and a face full of shock, Marcelo chuckled, “They’re great, Liam’s not keeping us up as much as he used to, and Enzo’s actually been asking about you” He said
I smiled, “Well tell Enzo, I’ll stop by soon with Junior one of these days”
Marcelo nodded, “Will do”
“Hey Y/N, can you pass me that?” Cristiano asked
I payed him no attention, and gave Marcelo a hug. “I’ve got to run to the hospital, I’ll see you later alright” I told him
Marcelo nodded chuckling, "Have fun at work" He said
I waved and started walking to my car, “You see what I mean, she’s been ignoring me like that since this morning” I heard Cristiano say
I rolled my eyes getting in my car and heading off to work. My time at work was so nice, for some reason today no one was begging ignorant or rude it was just a nice and peaceful day. So you could imagine how I felt when the day ended, I groaned walking through the doors Leila and Frankie next to me. “What’s up with you? Are you Y/N actually enjoying work today?” Frankie asked
I nodded, “It’s my break today”
They chuckled, we eventually had to split up and get into our separate cars and then home. Once I got home, I sighed as soon as I walked through the door. Heading into the kitchen I had already started to tie my hair up when I saw the amount of dishes in the sink.
I rolled my eyes not even not speaking to the damn man will get him to help out. “Y/N these are for you” Cristiano said
I didn’t pay him any attention, and continued to wash the mount of dishes in the sink. Cristiano sighed, “Y/N are you really going to ignore me? I said I was sorry”
Again I didn’t say anything, and just scoffed. Cristiano stayed all the way till I finished washing the dishes. He followed me all the way around the house as I did everything that needed to be done even when I went to the bathroom he stayed outside the door.
And just as I was going to walk out of the door, Cristiano pulled the door shut. I groaned, “I’m not letting go of the door until you talk to me Y/N” He said
I raised an eyebrow, and looked around the bathroom. I shook my head, and opened up the window. Climbing out, I walked around the house and to the front door getting the key from under the mat I unlocked the door and went to the bedroom.
When I walked in Cristiano stared at me shocked, “How did you? There’s no-God Damnit Y/N” He said
I shook my head at him, and changed my clothes.
When I woke up the next morning, the entire living room and coffee table was filled with flowers and teddy bear’s. I looked around confused, and Cristiano came over placing his hand over my shoulder, “So do you like it? It’s my way of saying I’m sorry about what I said the other day. I was wrong, and I-Wait where are you going?” He asked as I walked away
I didn’t answer him, and continued walking out of the living room. Cristiano sighed, “Y/N please speak to me I’m sorry, alright I’m a fucking tool and I deserve to be hit” He said
I tried my hardest not to laugh, but he continued, “Seriously sometimes I don’t know why you stay with me, but then I remember how attractive I am and then I realize-but that’s not the point.” He said continuing to ramble on
I chuckled shaking my head, “Shut up Ronaldo”
Cristiano smiled, “She speaks” He said
I rolled my eyebrows, “She does speak”
Cristiano sighed, “I really am sorry about what I said to you the other night, I know what you do is important both at work and here. I understand that now, and I don’t know what made me be an ass and say those things”
I nodded, “I’m glad you realized how important I am”
Cristiano chuckled, “Is there anything you’d like to say to me?”
I sighed, “I’m sorry for calling you ignorant and comparing you with the patients, and thank you for washing the dishes this morning”
Cristiano gave me a smile pulling me close to him, “I love you”
Since Magi started with Leila and Sahsa, I thought it might be nice if it ended with them too. So, I wrote this fic as a sort of alternate/extended ending. I named it after chapter 314 since it seemed appropriate all things considering.
