If you wanted, you could write a Solangelo au where one is a single parent? That'd be neat,,
Note: Lina’s full name is Carolina, and it is pronounced CaroLEENA.
Hope you guys like it.
It was Lina’s first day of school, and Nico was having a breakdown.
The little five year old ran in circles around her dad, wearing her adorable Little Mermaid backpack. Her Uncle Percy started that obsession, and now Nico didn’t have a day without watching that movie at least twice.
She was so excited, but it made him even more nervous for her.
What if the kids are mean to her?
What if she falls and hits her head?
What if she’s alone for lunch?
What if they laugh at her for not having two parents?
He wiped his hands on his jeans for the millionth time.
“Carolina, did you brush your teeth?”, Nico said.
“Yes, papa.”, She nodded and bit back a smile.
“You sure?”, He raised an eyebrow.
“Yes…”, Lina’s face betrayed her words.
Nico waited a bit more and crossed his arms.
“No… I didn’t.”, She looked down ashamed.
“It’s okay. Now, go up and brush your teeth.” He watched his daughter fondly, as she ran up the stairs.
Nico nibbled on a piece of toast, not having that much of an appetite.
Lina was an exact carbon copy of Nico’s sister Bianca. The only thing different was her eyes, instead of the dark brown, it was a deep grey. Startling and clever.
It hurt everytime he thought of Bianca. She was the one who basically raised Nico, later their half sister Hazel. She was always the one who loved life and wanted to do something great, but then she got pregnant.
Whoever the father was, he was never around. Nico never knew him. The only remnant of him was Lina’s eyes.
Bianca was ecstatic. She wanted to be a mom so bad. She wanted to make sure her abby never felt unloved, unlike Nico and her growing up. But after she gave birth to the perfect Carolina, she fell sick. She was gone too soon and Nico was left with his niece, now daughter. He was a dad at 21.
He wouldn’t have survived that first year if it wasnt for his friends. Helping him with Lina and his grief.
And now 5 years later, here they were happy and content.
“Carolina Maria di Angelo, you’re gonna be late!!”, Nico yelled.
The sound pitter patter of small feet running started almost immediately. “I’m coming, papa! Wait for me!”
He soft shook his head, as if he could leave her.
“Let’s go, slowpoke!”, he laughed as she rushed to get her new shoes on.
“Don’t laugh, papa!”, She stuck her tongue out at him.
As the two exited the small flat, Nico handed Lina her lunchbox. “Don’t forget to eat, okay?”
“I won’t, papa.”, She took it in her hands.
“Don’t forget to drink water and if someone is mean to you, what do you do?”
“You kick them where it hurts.”
“Yes you kic- No! Who said that?”, Nico said, already dreading the phone calls he’s going to get saying that Lina kicked a classmate in the crotch.
“Uncle Leo and Uncle Percy.”, Lina flashed him an innocent grin.
Nico made a mental note to kick them where it hurts.
Lina’s school was a little public school around five blocks away from where they lived. Parents were already going to their children’s classes to meet the teachers.
Before they got out of the car, Nico took a breath he didn’t realize he was holding. “Darling, have fun, okay. Make friends, have fun, and try your best. If you do that, papa will be so very proud.”
“I promise, papa!”, she flashed him a brilliant smile.
As they walked to Lina’s cass to meet her teacher, Lina grabbed his hand. A small gesture that melted his heart.
They finally got to Room 112, and a man that Nico guessed was Mr. Solace stood outside the door greeting his incoming students and parents.
Holy Hell. Mr. Solace was the most beautiful person Nico has ever seen. He seemed to be around Nico’s age. Deep tan skin and golden hair that seemed to reflect sunlight.
No, Nico. Dont get distracted by your daughter’s teacher, for gods sake. Be professional.
“Hi! I’m Will Solace, and who would you be?”, The pretty teacher crouched down to Lina’s eye level.
The excitement in Lina was replaced with a sudden shyness. She hid behind Nico’s leg and peeked up at Will with curious eyes.
“Go on, darling. Introduce yourself to Mr. Soalce.”, Nico softly nudged Lina with his hand.
“My name is Carolina di Angelo, but my papa calls me Lina.”, Lina slowly got out from behind Nico’s leg and stood in front of Mr. Soalce. She held out her hand, just like how Nico taught her when she met new people.
“Nice to meet you, Lina. Go inside and find a seat, and we’ll start soon.”, He smiled warmly at her.
Lina looked at Nico, silently asking permission. Nico nodded, and she went off.
However, just before she passed the door, Lina abruptly stopped and turned and gave Nico a hug. “Bye, papa. See you later. Love you!!”
Nico’s eyes misted over, but he quickly wiped them away with his sleeve.
“She seems like a good kid, Mr. di Angelo.”, Mr. Soalce said to him, a shining glint in his eyes.
“You can call me, Nico, and I tried raising her the best I can.” Nic soft said, hoping the secret meaning of the words were carried along.
Mr. Solace’s eyes slightly widened, and he smiled even wider, if it was possible. “I can alreayd tell that you did an amaizing job, Nico.”
Nico’s heart skipped a beat. His eyes were a very startling blue. He was such pleasant sight to look at. The way he smiled and the way Nico’s name rolled off his tongue.
“Thank you, Mr. Solace.” Nico desperately tried to hid the spreading blush on his cheeks.
“Call me Will. I promise you I will take good care of Lina.”, Will’s deep blue eyes met Nico’s.
“Okay. Thank you, Will.”, Nico smiled. He then had to go to work and said his goodbyes to the captivating teacher.
Will waved at him as he left.
Nico didn’t feel scared for Lina anymore.
He knew she was in good hands.
