Alexandra and Nicolo Romano in the house ......
Alex listened quietly to what Leo had to say about her relationship with Conor. While it was obvious that he did not agree with the relationship, Alex got the sense that he at least understood it to an extent. She slowly nodded and gave him a half smile but was unable to find any words to say.
When he hugged her, Alex hugged him back but listened intently to what he had to say. She had to fight back the tears of relief that were fighting to spill over as he told her he would warn Conor “thank you Leo” she whispered as she squeezed him slightly tighter.
While Alex knew the relationship with her and Conor was finished, she was still glad that he now had a fighting chance to get to safety and to live his life. She just hoped now that he would leave and get away from her father. Speaking of her father, Alex stepped away from Leo when he entered the room and looked up to him when he spoke, she nodded as Leo left the room before looking back at her father “I’ll will” she said with a nod before he left the room.
Alex turned to pick up her coffee again when she heard someone enter the kitchen, Alex turned to see her brother. She hesitated on his chest as she feared to look up at his eyes, she was terrified of how he might be looking at her.
“Alex ... I ....” Nicolo didn’t know what to say his sister anymore. They used to have such an easy relationship, He once would have called her his best friend but now , now he didn’t know what to think. Nicolo looked on as Alex slowly looked up at him. He could see the still evident pain behind her eyes and sighed, no matter how angry he was with her, he hated seeing her upset or in pain. “I don’t even know what to say , I’m not happy in the slightest about it” he told her before sighing in frustration. He watched as Alex silently nodded.
“All I can say is I’m sorry, I can’t excuse it and I can’t take it back, but I loved him” Alex said sadly while looking down.
“We’ll have a talk about this later Alex, when we get back” Nicolo frowned as he ran his hand down his face. He sighed, deeply troubled before wrapping his arm around his sister in a tight hug “I love you alright, your still my baby sister and just as much of an idiot as I thought you were”. Nicolo pulled back from the hug and ruffled his sisters hair giving her a small smile “but we will talk about this later” a tone of seriousness present in her voices
Alex allowed a slight smirk to pass her lips when he called her an idiot “I love you too” she said before he left.
(Will post the church in a few, they needed to have a goodbye!!)
