Lasagne, Sauce and Gelato.
You were humming happily throughout your home on the way to the kitchen. You then reached your destination and started scavenging the cupboards and pantries for food.
"Mamma! I'm hungry~!" Your 4 year old daughter called from the living room. "Is lunch going to be ready soon~?"
You then closed the cupboards and walked to the entry which separated the lounge from the kitchen. "Yes my love, don't worry..." you smiled." Anyways we have to wait for daddy to come home so we can have lunch." you smiled.
She puffed her cheeks. "Okay Mamma. Daddy! Hurry up and come home!" She said to no one in particular.
"Yes Romano, Hurry up!" you said before giggling with your daughter as you two were behaving like children, Uh, you were behaving like a little girl.
"Hang on there for a little while longer, I'll start lunch." you said to your daughter. "Okay~!" she responded before running to her room.
You observed your daughter dreamily. She was 4 years already, Isabella Vargas. She had your same (h/c) hair but with a stray curl like Romano, she also had Romano's eyes. She looked like a doll; A living angel in your eyes.
You then sighed and snapped out of your daydream and continued looking in the pantry for something to cook. You looked in the cupboard, spices, pasta sheets, so you took them and put them in the table. You then bent down to the lower cupboard level and looked in there.
Napolitano Sauce, White Sauce, Romano Sauce... You then giggled and grabbed the Romano sauce.
Lovino always got annoyed as his name was always in many items of his country. Romano cheese, Romano Brand, Romano spice, Romano sauce... You then started giggling some more before feeling two strong arms wrapping around your waist and a chin resting in your shoulder.
"I'm home." Lovino grumbled before giving you a kiss in your cheek.
"Welcome home Lovi." You said before kissing his cheek and you laughed again, remembering what you were thinking before.
"What's so funny?" He asked looking over your shoulder.
"Oh Nothing much, I was looking for some things for lunch when I found this." You said and showed him the bottle of sauce. He frowned. "Romano sauce, and how you get angry that your name is in many things."
"Well just-a imagine you being teased for a type of food that is named after you." He huffed into your shoulder. "'Ah, is it Romano, like the cheese~?'" Romano said in a high pitch voice trying to imitate another person. "Seriously it's freaking annoying."
You laughed at his reaction. "Don't worry Lovino..." you chuckled. "It must be easier to remember things."
"Easier to remember my foot. Can't people distinguish me between pieces of freaking food?" He growled. You smiled and turned over to him and kissed his lips. He smiled into the kiss before kissing you back, harder than you had before. He licked your lip and he was about to make the kiss deeper when...
"Ah, Papa, you're finally home!" Your daughter said with a little anger from waiting. "What are you and Mamma doing?" she tilted her head to the side and looked at both of your with her big eyes.
You and Lovino instantly broke the kiss. You were wiping any loose drool that you had and Lovino did too. You two blushed. How embarrassing that their own child had found you two making out.
"A-ah, nothing, Isa..." You laughed nervously.
"Your-a Mamma is right Bambina.., nothing at all!" He two Laughed nervously and scratched his head in embarrassment. 'Damn it!' he cursed internally. He tried not to curse when Isabella was around.
"Oh...Kay..." Your daughter said. "So, Mamma, have you started lunch yet? Daddy's here."
"Not yet baby, you'll have to wait a little longer."
"B-but you said!" she pouted.
"I know, Bella, but uh... i know! I'll make it up to you." You said, your head now spinning in what to say to your child without bringing up anything pricey or impossible.
"...We'll be having Gelato for desert, Bella." Lovino finished your sentence. You then turned to him and light up. 'You're a genius Lovino!'
"How's that?" He bent down and ruffled his only daughter's hair.
"Per favore!" Isabella chimed in Italian.
"Sicuro, Mía bella Bambina." Lovino responded in Italian. "Ti Amo." he said before kissing her forehead.
"Ti Amo tutti Papa!" She giggled before kissing his cheek. You swore you could of melt into a muddle right there. It was too cute when she started talking Italian with her daddy!
"And what about Mamma? Don't you love her too?" Romano teased. You nodded.
"YES! I love her thiiiis much." Isabella said before extending her arms as wide as she could. "Ti Amo Mamma!"
"Di Tutti, Isabellita." You smiled.
"Wow, that's a lot, isn't it ____?" Lovino said before standing up again. You nodded. "Yes! So, Baby, are you going to wait for lunch now? Mamma and Papa will make it straight away."
"Yes Sir!" She saluted and giggled all the way to her room.
Lovino then turned to you and hugged your waist. "...where were we...~"
"Making Lunch." You said before pecking his lips and escaping his embrace to continue looking or the ingredients. Lovino growled.
"What are we making?" Lovino asked.
"Lasagne." You responded. "It will be easy for you and really quick if we do it together so..."
He sighed. "I get your drift; I'll just go get some fresh tomatoes from the garden to put in it." Lovino said before heading outside to the garden. "Ciao, I'll be back in a sec."
"It's ok!" You smiled and started preparing some white sauce in a saucepan and cooking some mincemeat in a pan. All while humming.
"I'm back, again." Lovino said before heading to the sink to wash his red beauties. He then started to chop them in the chipboard in the table.
You were now putting the fresh handmade pasta sheets in the tray. Lovino then put a layer of meat and vegetables while you put a layer of white sauce and pasta sheets. You two repeated this process a couple of times until the top of the tray was full. You then finally put the 'Romano sauce' on top and gave it to Lovino who then put the tray in the hot pre-prepared oven and closed it.
"Ah, Done!" Lovino sighed and wiped imaginary sweat. "Now we-a have to wait."
"Not a problem." You said before walking to the lounge and turning on the TV. "We can wait." you said before patting the spot next to you for Lovino. Who sat down next to your and kissed your hair.
"Best way to-a relax." Lovino said while he rested his head in your lap.
"..mano... Romano... Lovino... Wake up! The timer is done!"
"Agh?" Romano mumbled "Ok." he said groggily and went to get the food. And you went to prepare the table.
"Waah~! This is aaaahmazing!" Your daughter said when she tried the lasagne. "Papa and Mamma are the best cooks in the world!"
"Even better than France?" you teased. You felt Lovino tense from the other side of the table.
"Even better that Uncle Francis, Uncle Yao and Uncle Turk combined~!" Your daughter smiled. You then felt Lovino relax. 'Even better than the best? That's nice.' You smiled.
"Thank you Bella." Lovino said with a smile. "You're the best."
"Noo, papa, you and Mamma are the best!" Isabella grinned before digging into her food again.
"Isn't she absolutely precious?" You said to Lovino.
"She reminds me of you." Lovino said. You blushed. "She looks so much like you; she is going to be a beautiful woman one day."
"That she will." You smiled sweetly at your daughter who was currently stuffing her face with tomatoes and Lasagne. "She will be a hit with the boys!"
You then felt Lovino tense up again. And he started giving out murderous aura. "...no one will touch her..."
"...Or I'll kick their a-"
"A-Ah, Sorry, got caught up in the moment, I forgot." He smiled sheepishly. You huffed. You knew he was protective but that was a whole new level. And he wasn't supposed to swear in front of Isabella.
"Papa! Mamma! Finished!" Isabella said showing her plate, which was now Lasagne and Tomato free.
She was a Vargas after all.
"Good job! Now I'll bring the treat we promised."
"Mm. Cant-a wait." Lovino licked his lips in anticipation. "Bring me the usual!"
"Here you-a-go!" You said trying to feign an Italian accent. Which Lovino laughed at. "Next!"
"Hmmph. No Gelato for you then?" You lifted your brow and smirked.
"N-n-no! Anything but the gelato!" Lovino cried. Isabella giggled. You smiled. "That's right"
"Here you go, Bella!" You said before handing a vanilla gelato cup for Isabella which she said "Grazie!" and started to dig in to her Icy treat. "Mmn! Yum!"
You then put some (flavour) gelato in a clear glass for you and you started to eat it.
"What about me ____." Lovino whined. You just smirked and walked over to him and kissed his lips, which surprised him before you handed him some Pistachio gelato. You then whispered something on his ear that made him blush brighter than his beloved tomatoes.
You'd never seen him eat that fast.
And thus was another day with your beloved famiglia.
what are you doing to mama?"
