Lovino ran as quickly as his two legs would take him, not even paying attention to where he was going.  When he couldn't smell the intoxicating scent, he stopped, leaning over with his hands on his knees, he caught his breath before looking up to see where his feet had taken him.  He had run all the way to the furthest point of the lower grape field.

He looked in the direction of the house and couldn't believe how small it looked from where he stood.

"I didn't realize I could run that fast." he said, as he ran his hand through his hair.  

He let out a heavy sigh and headed back up towards the house.  He was quite dumbfounded as to why that scent had caused that reaction in him and was quite curious to find out who it belonged to.  Then it dawned  on him, Alaric was also in the barn, perhaps whoever the odor belonged to had gone in there and Alaric had seen him.

Lovino was now on a mission to find Alaric, which shouldn't be too hard with his superior sense of smell.

Alaric looked all over the property looking for  Lovino, but he had no luck.  He had no idea where the young man could have run off to.  Alaric couldn't help but wonder if Lovino knew who had caused that reaction in him.

Just when Alaric had all but given up and was heading back up to the house, he heard a familiar voice call his name.

"Mr. Beilschmidt!"

He turned to see Lovino jogging up to him.

"I'm glad you found me, it's time for lunch." Alaric said as he continued to walk back to the house.

"May I ask you something, uncle Alaric?"

Alaric stopped in his tracks and turned to Lovino, surprised to hear the name flow from the man's lips.  Alaric couldn't remember the last time Lovino had called him that.

Lovino now had Alaric's undivided attention.

"I assume it's about what happened earlier?" Alaric sighed, knowing there was only one reason Lovino had called him that.

Lovino just nodded.

"Do you know why it happened?" Lovino asked, not wanting to give too much information, for fear that he really didn't know what was happening.

"I do." Alaric said, leaving Lovino waiting for a more specific answer.

"Well?" Lovino almost shouted.

"I'm not sure if I should be the one explaining this to you.  It's usually the father, or in your case, your grandfather, or the clan elder that deals with this sort of thing."

"Uncle Alaric, you know I can't go to nonno about this.  He will never stop teasing me about it!"

"I'm afraid you have no other choice, clan law is very strict about this sort of thing and I, for one, don't want to loose my life.  So please, don't ask me any more about this.  I will keep it from your grandfather for a little longer, but I can't keep it from him for too long.  If you don't go to him, I will be forced to.  Plus, I don't think you're giving your grandfather enough credit.  He can be very understanding when it comes to certain things." Alaric smiled, placing his hands on Lovin's shoulders.

"Can you at least tell me what caused me to run away like that?"  Lovino all but pleaded.

Lovino was never one to beg, but seeing the pleading look in his eye, Alaric couldn't say no.  Had it been Feliciano, he would have had no problem saying no.

"It was the scent of a certain someone." Alaric sighed, looking down at his feet.

"I know tha....... wait, did you say someone?  Not something, but someONE?"

Alaric nodded.

"Well, did you see who it was?  Did they enter the barn?" Lovino asked, a little more excited than Alaric would have liked.

"I'm sorry, they didn't come into the barn.  I don't know who it was." Alaric lied.

It was not something he was proud of doing, but he did feel it necessary.  He was afraid that if he gave away to much information, Lovino wouldn't go to Julius, and the clan would be furious with him.  The last thing he wanted was to invoke the wrath of the clan.  He did have two boys at home that he had to worry about and the last thing he wanted was for the clan to use them to punish him.

"All right, well thanks."

"You'd better get back to the house, your nonno is waiting for you."

"All right, thanks." Lovino said, hanging his head and heading towards the house.

"Lovino, I'm sorry I couldn't be more help to you.  But like I said, talk to your nonno." Alaric said, Lovino just nodded and headed back to the house.

Lovino knew Alaric wasn't being completely honest with him, but he understood why.  He knew the kind of power the clan had and how ruthless they could be to outsiders.  Even though Alaric had grown up right along side his nonno, was his personal assistant and new all about the clan and their customs, the clan still considered him an outsider.

With a heavy sigh, Lovino realized that the only way he was going to get any answers was to go to Julius.  As painful as it was going to be, he knew he had no other choice

happy reading!

Next: in progress
Neither ___ nor Lovino knew what to say to the other.  It felt like they had been walking for hours together.  Lovino was still embarrassed by the affection she had shown him and she was still nervous about the incident that had happened seven years ago.  She hoped he had changed, but from some of Feliciano's letters, it didn't sound like he changed much.  He was still quick to temper and had grown even more distant, Feliciano had told her.

Lovino couldn't help but think about the warm embrace he had received from ___.  It felt so foreign to him, even though he would never admit it, if felt good to be embraced like that.  No one had ever greeted him in such a way in his entire life and honestly, he wanted her to greet him like that every time.  He knew deep down she wouldn't, she was afraid of him.  The smell of fear was so heavy on her, he was surprised he could smell anything else.

"Did you have a safe trip back?" Lovino asked, mentally kicking himself for asking such a stupid question.  Of course she had a safe trip, she was walking behind him.  If it hadn't been safe, clearly she wouldn't be walking with him.

"Um, I did, thank you." She replied, a little surprised that Lovino had spoken to her.

"That's good.  I know Feliciano would be very upset if anything ever happened to you.  I doubt he would ever stop crying."

Lovino's heart fluttered ever so slightly, when he heard the small chuckle come from her.

"Yea, you're probably right, though I think you may be exaggerating, but just a little."

"I don't think so."

"It's nice to see that not much has changed since I've been away." She said as she looked around.

"Mainly just staff has changed." Lovino replied, he wanted to talk to her more, but he wasn't quite sure what to say.

"It's weird that I'm now going to be the book keeper.  I figured I would have ended up taking over for my mom."

"It's not surprising, you were always the best at math."

"Um, thanks." ____, replied.  She felt a little odd getting a compliment from Lovino.

"Um, hey, ____?" Lovino asked, but was interrupted by a high pitched squeal.

"_____!!!!!  You're back!!"  It was Feliciano.

Once he saw his childhood friend, he ran straight for her and tackled her to the ground in a tight embrace.


"Oh, ____, I've missed you so much!  Don't ever leave like that again!"

"Don't worry, Feli, I don't plan on it, and I missed a lot too!" She replied through her giggles.
"Now that you're back, we can do all the things we never got to do because you were sent away."

"I don't know about that.  I'm sure Nono is going to have me really busy learning how to keep the books with Mr. Dioli.  But I'm sure we'll be able to spend plenty of time together."

"But I don't want to wait!  I want to catch up with you now!" He whined.

"Well, I'm free until after lunch, so why don't we catch up until then?" She smiled.

"Really?" He beamed down at her.

"Really, but you have to get off me first.  When did you get so heavy?" She groaned as Feliciano got up off her.

Feliciano continued to smile as he helped her up and brush the dirt off her.

"I'm sorry for knocking you down.  I just got so excited when I saw you, I couldn't help it."

"It's ok, I understand.  I was actually on my way to come see you.  Lovino was showing me to your new room."

"Wow, Lovino, that was....." But when Feliciano turned to thank his brother, he was gone.

"He left kind of fast."

"I guess he still really hates me, huh." ___ said with a sad smile across her face

"No, I don't think that's true.  Lovino is just shy around people he's not familiar with and you've been gone a long time, so he was probably just nervous around you." Feliciano said with that ever present smile.

"I'm not so sure, he seemed grumpier than I remember and still just as scary." ___ said as she looked down to the ground.

"Don't say that, _____!  Lovino really has changed!  He just doesn't know how to express himself and when he gets embarrassed, he gets angry.  It's actually pretty funny.  He gets all red and bashful, especially around women.  He's even more awkward around women.  He tries to avoid them as much as possible, but unfortunately for him, being the next in line to be head of the family, he's going to have to chose a ma.....bride soon."  Feliciano caught himself before he let that little slip up happen.  He wasn't sure how much ___ knew about his family and he didn't want to risk her safety by accidentally letting something slip.  He was relieved to see that she hadn't noticed.

"Has Nonno found anyone he thinks could tolerate Lovino's temper?"

"Unfortunately, not yet.  The women he's met so far have been very beautiful and very nice, but after spending a few minutes with him, they come back cursing him and telling nonno that he isn't fit for marriage."

___ felt. Little bad for Lovino after hearing that.  She thought that perhaps she should give him a second chance.  He didn't lash out at her when she had greeted him earlier, now that she thought about it, he seemed to accept it and he was a little bashful afterwards.  Perhaps he had changed.

"Well, maybe I should give him a second chance.  I mean it has been seven years and people change, right?" She smiled up at Feliciano, who practically had tears in his eyes.

"Do you really mean it?  Will you really try to be friends with Lovino again! Oh, ___!  You don't know how happy that makes me!" Feliciano said, embracing his childhood friend in a bone crushing hug.

"Feli, you're crushing me." She managed to wheeze out.

"Oh, sorry!" He said, releasing her from his embrace.

"It's fine, besides, I should get to know him better if I'm going to be working with him on a daily basis, right?  Now, come on, I'm kinda hungry." She smiled, grabbing Feliciano's arm and dragging him off to where she remembered the kitchen being.

Lovino watched his brother and ____ from his bedroom window.  Growing even more jealous of the attention and affection she was showing his brother.  Everyone was always so much more affectionate with Feliciano. They were always so quick to praise him too.  Why couldn't he be more like his brother?  Why did he have to be filled with so much rage and jealousy?  It just wasn't fair!

He looked down at his hands and closed his eyes as he tried to remember how it felt to be embraced by her.  He remembered the feel of her lips on his checks as she greeted him, he could feel his face grow hot as he remembered.  He wanted to feel her arms around him again, feel her pressed against him again.

Before he realized it, his heart rate had gone up and he was breathing a little heavier.  He didn't understand the feelings he was having and it frustrated him to no end!  He wished he had someone he could talk to about it, but he didn't know who.  He couldn't tell his grandfather for fear of being teased relentlessly, or possibly even scolded, he dared not tell Feliciano, he might let it slip in conversation.  Then he thought about Alaric.  He was always neutral and had kept things secret from his grandfather when Lovino had gone to him in the past.

Having decided to talk to Alaric, Lovino looked in the direction of his brother and ___, only to see them walking hand in hand towards the house.  This caused Lovino to emit a low growl, which surprised him, he had never done anything like that before.  He decided the sooner he talked to Alaric, the better.

It didn't take him long to find Alaric.  He was in the barn, brushing the horses.  A favorite pastime of his, he said he found it relaxing and it allowed him time to think.

"Mr. Beilschmidt?"

"Hello Lovino, what can I do for you?" Alaric said, giving Lovino a small gentle smile.

"I actually wanted to talk to you."  Lovino said, rather nervously.

"Of course, you know my ear is always open to you."

"I know." Lovino said as he began fidgeting with his hands.

"So, what's bothering you?"

"Well, you're familiar with our family's........ Condition, right?"

"Yes?" Alaric said, stopping his brushing.

"Well, I've been having these weird feelings......." Lovino paused, unsure if he should continue.

"About a woman?" Alaric asked, Lovino just nodded.

"Tell me more." Alaric said, setting the brush down and walking over to Lovino.  Knowing how difficult it had been for Lovino with the other women he had met, he was curious about who this girl was and how long Lovino had been feeling this way.

"Well, I keep thinking about the way she greeted me and how it felt to hold her and...... Well, I saw her holding someone else's hand and, well....."

"You growled?" Lovino nodded.

"When I think about her, my heart starts beating faster and I start to feel hot all over.  I've never felt this before."

Alaric gave Lovino that same gentle smile as he placed his hand on his head.

"Don't worry, what you're feeling is perfectly normal, though it seems to have hit you a little later.  I remember when this happened to your nonno. He wasn't as calm about it as you are."

"Will it pass?" Lovino asked.

"Yes, it just means you are maturing and finally ready to find a bride." Alaric lied, he knew all to well what these signs meant and knew that he would have to keep a closer eye on Lovino and wait for the right time to tell Julius.

Before Lovino could say goodbye, a gentle breeze came through the barn, carrying a scent Lovino had never smelled before.  He stiffened and began to sweat and all of a sudden, he had this uncontrollable urge to run in the opposite direction.  Alaric noticed the quick color change in his cheeks and how his breathing quickened, he knew all to well what it meant.

"Thanks for your help, Mr. Beilschmidt.  And please don't tell nonno." Not waiting to see who the scent belonged to, Lovino ran out the back of the barn, not giving Alaric the chance to reply.  Though he was sure he knew what caused it, he had seen the exact same behavior in Julius and Alaric smiled, though it quickly faded when he saw who walked into the barn.

"Here you are, Uncle Alaric.  Nonno sent me to come and get you for lunch." ___ smiled as she entered the barn.

"All right, let me just clean up and I'll be up there soon." He said, picking up the horse brush and putting it back.

"Do you know where I could find Lovino?  I wanted to thank him for showing me to Feli's room and nonno asked me to tell him lunch was ready too."

"I will get him, you go ahead and head back to the house." Alaric said as he guided the horse back to it's stahl.

"All right, thank you." ___ smiled as she left the barn.

Alaric let out a heavy sigh.  If ___ was the girl Lovino was having these feelings for, it wasn't good.  He would have to keep an eye on them before he mentioned it to Julius.  This could cause a lot of trouble for the clan.

I am so excited and so happy!  I still can't believe it!  With the news I'm about to tell you, unfortunately comes with a little bad news as well.  It looks like I will be going in a hiatus, again or still.  The reason being is I have 2 cons that I need to prep for! New Con in Portland in January (I will be in the vendors hall) and, wait for it!!!!  The one I'm super duper more excited than I've been in a long time! I got int the Artist Alley at Sakura con in Seattle. That's the big one here in the Pacific Northwest. The thing that sucks about getting into Sakura con is it's cirst come, first serve. You litteraly have seconds to fill out the application and submit it.  Not sure how I did it this year, but I did it! & now I'm so excited and about to get insanely busy!  I will probably write as a distraction from crafting, but who knows how much.

I can't wait! Oh & if any of you have suggestions on things I can make, please, feel free to note me or something!  So excited!!!
