Love Letters

Chapter 23 Adriana; Giving Life



"Youre an asshat" I muttered, tapping away on my phone, my head rested on Giovanni's shoulders as he watched Runaways.

"Asshat? I've been called an Ass, An asswipe, an asshole and a jackass but asswipe?" He scoffed with a smile and I rolled my eyes.

"Oh you didn't know?" I gasped and feigned ignorance.

"Its a new type of ass" I glared at him before turning back to the dress I was designing.

"Something is missing" I muttered and I could feel his gaze on my phone.

"A collar?" He asked and I resisted the urge to pinch him.

"Its an off shouldered dress Giovanni! Its not supposed to have a collar! Ugh!" I groaned

"I miss Adrian!" I muttered before opening my Instagram, 4.2m followers.

"I miss him too, that self-absorbed, selfish, fan girl thieving dick"

"I think you're referring to you"

"Who's a good girl?" Papa walked into the living room in a pair of sweatpants and a mismatched sweatshirt, blowing raspberries on Gianna's tummy and she giggled.

"Stop it! Daddy! Stop!" She laughed and I rolled my eyes.

"Who's Daddy's baby girl? Huh?" He perched on the seat beside Gio

"Me! Me!" She screamed and I laughed at her eagerness.

"Of course you are" he cooed and nudged her nose with his lightly.

"What's it with the father daughter commotion?" I asked.

"Your mom is sleeping" my lips rounded.

"Oh...okay....that explains it. Mariano?" Papa rolled his eyes girlishly and I laughed. He didn't look a day over thirty, neither did he look like the heartless businessman the TV portrayed him to be, he was like a big fluffy teddy bear.

"He wouldn't leave her side, he'd rather lay beside her and watch the ceiling than be with me" he muttered jealously and I laughed.

"Max!" Mom groaned tiredly from her room while papa kept blowing raspberries on Gianna's stomach.

"Papa! Stop!" She giggled and I chuckled.

"Bad monster! Very bad Monster!" He laughed.

"Milliano!" mom screamed even louder this time and he jumped, almost dropping Gianna in the process.

"What the hell, Cara? What's Up?" He ran towards the stairs, dropping Gianna on the couch while Gio followed.

"Hey beautiful, wanna play a game?" I winked at her and she nodded.

I opened the Makeup game and left as she got engrossed in the game.

"Mom?!" I climbed up the stairs but it seemed like no one was there.

Dahlia and Maeve were taking their afternoon nap while Luciano went along with Adriano.

"Mom?" I heard whimpers and I climbed the stairs. I ran as quickly as I could to her room. I tried to push the door open but it was locked.

"Let me in!" I slammed my palm on the door, the locked door only heightened my suspicions.

'What if something happened to her?' I thought to myself before banging my fist against the door.

"Fucking open the damn door! Gio!" Her cried reached my ear and I groaned

"Papa! Open the door, I just wan-"

"Go to your room, Riana. Now's not the time per favoure" Giovanni opened the door and his pale watery eyes scared me out of my skin.

"What happened, Gio?" I tried to peek into the room but his large build was obstructing my view.

"Go. You and Adriana should leave" Papa appeared behind him and he looked like he'd been crying, mom's sobs reached my ear and I pinched my nose.

"I just wanna see her, please papa!" I pouted hoping it'd work but he shook his head while Gio walked away, towards his room.

"But papa!"

"Go to your room, ana!" He roared and I jumped, my eyes widened

"Max, let her in" her sombre voice shook me to the core as he walked away from the door.

I walked into their virginal white room with accents of different colours.

"Ma...what's wrong?" I could almost cry at her swollen and bloodshot eyes. She gave a smile through it and I could see the pain.

"Mom stop smiling and tell me wha-"

"I lost my baby" she kept smiling and I knew she wasn't smiling at me, she was looking through me. My heart dropped, it did.

"I- I wanted it to be a surprise!" She cried and I crawled towards her as she sat in the middle of the bed.

She smiled and I wrapped my arms around her, crying for my lost sibling. Suddenly, I felt and arm around the cocoon I had created, a very familiar scent.

Adriano

"We'll be fine" he whispered and mom sobbed silently.

"You'll be fine" he whispered and she choked on her sobs then continued to sob.

"You'll always have us mom, I promise. We'll never leave. Me, Adriana, Giovanni, Maeve, Luciano, Gianna, Mariano, Dahlia and Papa" He exhaled and I noticed her sobs had stopped.

"We all love you and I know…I'm sure as hell that we're not leaving you" she nodded and Adriano chuckled.

"Now can I see that beautiful smile?" He pulled away and I held her hand in mine as she looked from me to Adriano and then to Papa, a smile appeared on her face.

"I love you guys" she whispered shyly and I almost laughed.

Fadekemi DeLuca, Shy? Hell Nah! This woman is the definition of PDA.

"We love you too" Gio said and I turned to find him resting against the door.

"You didn't give birth to me...and I know that were not related by blood" he walked towards her and sat on the other side of the bed.

"But you're my mother, you gave me life and that's all that matters" he kissed her forehead

"I'm proud of the man you've become…the men and woman you all have become" She smiled and I grinned

"I'm sorry" papa kissed her forehead and sat beside her. She climbed into his arms and I almost 'awwed' at them.

"Couple goals" I whispered and suddenly felt all eyes on me.

"What? You're like...goals!" They all burst out laughing before he kissed her forehead and she snuggled into his arms.

"I'll probably go start making dinner" I whispered feeling like I was cock blocking.

"Yeah, you should" papa whispered, not looking away from her while I rolled my eyes.

"You guys are disgusting...I'll take Mariano on my way out" Giovanni said

"Yeah, you should" he replied again and mom laughed.

"We should go see the trouble triplets." Mom suggested and he helped her to her feet.
