kobunroma started following you
[oh, but he can’t go to sleep yet—he peeks out of his covers, peering up blearily at the other. It takes him a long moment, but he finally recognizes him—Roma. Roma. His lips quiver]
I—oh, you…you’re back, Roma…
[and a small smile cascades his face as he sits up, letting his blankets fall as he raises his arms]
—welcome home, Roma. I missed you.
*the boy smiled brightly, giving a playful salute to the other*
I don’t leave forever, I’ll always come back.
*Hugs tightly* Grazie, I missed you as well. Hopefully things have been going good since I was away.
[he’s honestly too tired and sick to give a salute back, but instead nuzzles into the other’s arms, wrapping tight around Roma and pulling him into the blanket fort that he’s been sleeping in]
Uh huh. I’ve been really good, Roma. Really really good. I know you didn’t see, but I’m happy now. I’ve got a big brother all to myself and he’s kind and wonderful and good. And I’ve got a mommy and a daddy just like you do. Not my mamas and papas, but a really mommy and a real daddy even if we aren’t related by blood…well, me and daddy are.
How are you, Roma. [he snuggles against the other]
