“You’re amazing, did you know that?” djwifi
Today’s drabble is dedicated to my lovely sweets, @awesomefreckledjesus, to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope your day is beyond wonderful and full of only the best things! <3
“You’re amazing,” Alya smiled, pressing the tip of her finger lightly against Nino’s nose. “Did you know that?”
Nino’s cheeks darkened. “Stop.”
“Amazing and handsome and smart.” She bopped the end of his nose gently with every word. “I’m pretty much the luckiest girl in all of Paris, probably the world even.”
He chuckled, pulling her closer and hiding his face against her hair. “I don’t like this game,” he murmured.
“The one where you try to turn me into a blushing mess.” He pulled back and squeezed his eyes shut. “My face is so warm right now.”
“I bet I can make it warmer.”
“Alya,” he groaned but something in his tone let her know he would continue to listen. Nino had never been comfortable being complimented and Alya hoped to change that. He deserved so much praise.
She leaned over and kissed his cheek. “You amaze me everyday,” she said. “You work so hard at the things you love. You’re kind and sweet and you deserve only the best things.”
He swallowed thickly and watched her from behind his glasses.
“You’re my favorite person, Nino Lahiffe, and you’re just going to have to come to terms with that.”
“Of all the things you said, I think that’s the best one to be,” he finally replied, voice soft as he tucked her hair behind her ear.
Alya felt her own cheeks warm as a blush painted her skin and she shook her head. “You’re also very smooth.”
