“Excuse me but… Who are you?”
The unknown man merely chuckled as he raised his gloved hand to his lips before pouting. (Y/N) raised an eyebrow bewildered by his actions.
“Aw… You have forgotten your childhood friend already.” Were the words that slipped out from his lips. The girl, who was short compared to the man, squinted at the figure. He starred at her with an amused smile.
“Oh, I know!” She uttered and the brunette’s eyes shimmered as the girl took out her phone and dialed three numbers.
“Hello, 911? There’s this guy who…”
“Hey! What in the world are you doing, (Y/N)?!” The man exclaimed.
“Waaaah, he’s screaming at me…” She muttered to the operator in a prolonged manner. The brunette, however, was certainly not pleased and swiped the phone off her hand and ended the call. After doing so he saw the little girl grin. With a huff, he flicked her forehead.
“You troublesome little girl.” She stuck out her tongue while holding her stinging forehead.
“You’re no fun, Daniel Herdervary.”
Nikolai gripped the end of his coat as he speed walked to the insomniac. Moonlight and the dim lights of the houses his only guide. He then wondered why was he the one (Y/N) called to come over. It has not like he disliked being asked to do a favor or anything; it just seemed unusual for someone to be that trusting over a new friend. Friend… Was it? A small smile made its way to his lips as he finally realized what they were. But soon faded when he saw another figure through the window of (Y/N)’s house. His walk turned into a sprint as he eyed the brunette with a glare. When he was in front of the door, he heard laughter. He was sort of relieved and finally knocked on the door. Footsteps were heard from the inside before the door swung open to welcome the silver-haired man.
“Welcome to my home, Nikolai!” She chimed causing an amused smile from the male.
“Oh, is he the one you were talking about, kiddo?” Daniel mused as pink dusted the girl’s cheek before promptly throwing a book to his face. He dodged with ease while sporting a teasing grin.
“Damn you…” She muttered before turning to attend to Nikolai who had been staring at the two with confusion. (Y/N) quickly remarked that he should ignore the guy sitting in her living room, adding that it would be an absolute waste of his precious time if he tried conversing with him. This made Daniel yell out in protest before throwing a pillow in her direction. The pillow, however, didn’t reach the desired target but got ricochet back to him by the Belarusian who now sported an annoyed glare. Fluffiness made its way to Daniel’s face making him tilt back, lose his balance and fall. This made his little target giggle since he whined a lot and swore in his native language.
“Before anything else of your mischief, (Y/N), you wanted help to sleep if I’m not mistaken.” Nikolai said after straightening his posture. Her eyes light up immediately when he spoke of the favor. The Belarusian gave her a small smile and patted her head, claiming that it was indeed difficult to rest with a loud person such as… He pointed at the fallen man, demanding a name. When answered, Nikolai promptly continued the discussion with the girl. This lead to the Hungarian to pout again given that he was being ignored by the person he traveled a great distance for. More when they walked to her bedroom. With a groan, he dashed to where they were.
“Before anything else of your mischief, Nikolai…” Daniel emulated then faked coughed.
“As her legal guardian, I am here to take care of… Hey! Listen to me! H-hey… You guys…” He was halted by the adorable sight of Nikolai patting (Y/N)’s head while he whispered lullabies in her ear. Daniel’s cheeks were dusted with crimson as he instinctively took out his Polaroid camera, took about three shots before fanning himself.
“So cute, aaaaah.” He was muttering to himself as a finally asleep (Y/N) was at sight. Nikolai then stood up when he finished this little favor. He whispered a “goodnight” to the girl, placing a novel on her side table and casually looked over to the fanboying Hungarian.
“Daniel, was it?” He asked and received a nod from the brunette.
“I’m leaving her in your care for tonight; make sure to lock the doors and windows…” Nikolai stated as he walked over to the exit, his back towards the other. He then turned, eyes piercing through Daniel like blades.
“Most of all, keep dear (Y/N) safe or you will not like the consequences…” He warned as he closed the front door behind him, locking it. Daniel stood there in bewilderment but soon a small smirk made its way to his lips.
“Ah, young love…” He cooed as he swayed playfully before a sinister grin was plastered on his face. He chuckled.
“Let’s play, shall we?”
