prompt: hidden kisses
Petra is so much more than his personal assistant, but she’s always so eager to please and always available that sometimes Levi can’t help but get comfortable after she brings him the day’s agenda and his freshly brewed coffee and begins to recite any messages meant for him. And it doesn’t help that she does this all so efficiently and quickly that he wonders if he should just sleep in and let her do his job for him instead.
“Take these to the Commander first,” Levi says, handing her a folder with a red seal on the front. When she takes the folder, he narrows his eyes to seem intimidating but she doesn’t bat an eyelash. “Make sure that goes straight into his hands, Ral.”
On the seemingly endless list of Things He Should Not Do, Oliver’s certain eavesdropping is somewhere near the top. In his defense, he hadn’t intended to eavesdrop. What he had wanted were the cookies Mom kept hidden in one of the cupboards, but then he heard their voices. Hushed, sharp tones too compelling to ignore.
Oliver tiptoes down the short hallway. Sometimes the sliver of light from their room flickers and he hesitates, his heart leaping up his throat. The blood pounding in his ears makes it hard to hear them, but he catches bits and pieces of their argument. When he finally reaches the door, fear gives way to curiosity and he hears everything with startling clarity.
“You’re too old to go around picking fights with people because they say something you don’t like.” His mother sounds furious, her voice trembling. “I’m more than capable of defending my own honor. Not that I care what people like him think,” she adds with a huff.
Oliver frowns and dares to look in the room. His father sits on a stool while his mother kneels in front of him, wrapping bandages around his knuckles. Oliver looks at his face, his eyes catching on the weird bruise around one of his father’s eyes.
