E ‘il nostro secondo giorno in Italia. Uh … ci accingiamo ad andare al mare oggi.
You’ve never given me a sucky present, though. They’ve always been thoughtful and for me, that’s what counts. If you put thought into the present, then I automatically love it because it came from the heart, not because you want to look good or impress. But that’s just me. I think it’s better without phones because you can get the full experience … but I do need that translator or else we’ll be lost, more often than not.
My presents are always thoughtful because you deserve it. You’re pretty special for me and stuff. It wouldn’t feel right to give you something random, you know? But I do try to impress you a little bit. We can try without the phone, see how well we can do in there without any help… it would be like an adventure for us.
You are. So even if I’d said no, you would’ve sneaked a present anyway, right? Sneaky, sneaky. You know … I always love what you give me, though. You don’t have to worry about that. I don’t really know much about Italy, though. I have a travel book and a translator on my phone. We’ll explore and learn together. I can’t wait!
Some people would nice that’s a great thing…. I’m glad. I’ve always thought I give sucky presents. Oh, cool, exploring will be fun. I kinda did that when I was in Russia, but I didn’t have a phone.
I’m not going to be able to convince you otherwise, am I? Okay, but it has to be something small this year or else I won’t take it! And sure, that sounds good. We can leave tomorrow morning or whenever, really, since we can just apparate there. We’re going to Sicily first, by the way. Beaches everywhere!
Not really, I’m the sneaky one in here. But deal, something small. I promise you’ll love it. Alright, I can apparate to Puck’s whenever I’m ready and we’ll go from there, sounds good? You’ll kinda have to guide me through Italy because I don’t know the first thing about it, though.
I know, but you shouldn’t give me anything. Maybe next year, but not for this. Um, not too long. You know I’m not one of those girls — I’ll just need a little time to pack a bag, grab some essentials and I’m good to go.
I can give you something small this year, and something like, really cool next year. Okay, great, maybe we can start to get everything ready tonight and go tomorrow?
No, you’re not. I won’t let you. This is my gift to you, so you don’t have to give me anything in return. We can go whenever you want. It’s up to you. Neither of us have school anymore so … just say when.
You always tell me not to give you anything, and I always give you anyway. You know how that works. Uh, okay. How much time do you need to get ready?
I do know exactly what you mean. Living with a married couple can be a little awkward. Well, Noah has no say in it and my mom knows so even if he doesn’t approve, he can’t do a thing about it. I know I didn’t have to, but I wanted to. You deserve a little getaway and I’m more than glad to give it to you. So, that’s a yes? We’re going to Italy?
You know I’m going to give you something in return, right? Thi sis amazing. If you say so, then yeah! It’s an yes. We’re going to Italy. When are we going?
Oh. No, I understand that too. It’s why I feel weird even staying over at Noah and Hermione’s for a weekend, you know? They’re married and have their own life. I always feel as if I’m intruding, in a way. Well, you don’t have to worry about that just yet, then. Well … what do you say we go to Italy for a week?
Yeah! Exactly! I really want to give them some liberty you know? I’ll feel a lot better after I move.We as in the two of us? Alone? Do you think Puck would be fine with that? I think it would be totally cool. I’d really like that :) You didn’t have to do that though.
I don’t think I’ll feel different when it happens to me, either. From what I’m gathering, it’s different to us — the people on the outside looking in. For you, maybe it’s not really that different because nothing’s really … happened yet. It hasn’t been that long so your life hasn’t changed besides the fact that you don’t have to wake up really early anymore. You’ll figure it out, though. You don’t have to think about what you want to do just yet. Do you think you’d want to visit Italy?
I guess you’re right. It’ll probably feel different after I get a job or something. It’s kind of what happened the last time. Though, I’m not really sure what really happened and what was part of the memory spell that hit me… I kinda do, though. I don’t really feel comfortable living with my brother and Blaine now that they’re married and stuff, but I can’t afford living anywhere else except maybe Lima. Yeah, sure! That would be awesome!
It is a big deal, though — don’t undermine it. No, I completely know what you mean. Now that you can do whatever you want, there are so many possibilities that you can’t even pinpoint what it is that you’d want to do, right? It’s understandable. Yes, a present. Um … what do you think about Italy?
I dunno. I don’t feel any different. Except now I don’t have to wake up early everyday and watch some classes. Yeah, it’s kinda like that. It’s not really easy for me to know what to do. I mean, in Lima I just fixed cars with Burt, but it’s not like there’s many cars waiting to be fixed in diagon alley… Uh, I hear their pizza is great. Why?
