A loud sneeze came from the other side of the door, followed by random Italian words. The door was opened, soon after. Nerina was in her usual civilian attire, just finishing dressing her white coat and putting a blue scarf around her neck. She would let the hat on her room tonight. “Ciao… Happy Valentine’s day.” The Italian spy smiled, contrasting with her red nose.
Nerina was actually surprised that Francis had managed to knock out the rest of the bottles, even clapping to congratulate him. “Good job, seems like I was wrong.”
Her eyes grew wider in excitement when she saw what the prize was, but the best part was that Francis was actually handing it over to her. Flashbacks from her past start rushing over her like a waterfall. When was the last time she had received a gift like this?
The spy’s hands brushed on Francis’ ones before grabbing the giant panda and trying to hide her face on it’s head, as her cheeks gained a pink hue. “Grazie…” And before he could try to see her face, Nerina turned around and started walking towards a cotton candy stand.
Francis walked behind her with full excitement of the last event. Both of his hands were behind when he followed up besides Nerina. “In a mood of a soft sweet cotton candy?” He faced to Nerina with a smile on his face.
