Today is your date with Arthur. Date, the word usually means only for "two" people not "four." Arthur had wanted to leave them with China. China agreed but Matthew and Alfred didn't want to. Since you were such a caring mother, you brought them with you for your date.
In the car...
'Those brats... This is my chance to be alone with ___ right!?' Arthur got irritated just thinking about it.
"Arthur... I know what you're thinking."
'S-She can read my mind!?'
"If we leave them with Yao, they'll cry, wont they? I don't want that to happen."
"Okay, okay. I'm sorry." He kissed you on the cheek as an apology.
"So, where do you want to go?" he asked and focused himself again on driving.
"Ask them." you said and looked outside your window.
"Alfred, Mat-" When Arthur looked at them, there's a hint of excitement in their eyes.
"Carnival!!" they said at the same time.
At the two kid's words, Arthur drove them to the carnival. The carnival was pretty lively, Alfred got scared when an elephant walked in front of him. It was cute, tears almost falling out from his eyes while Matthew just giggled at him.
Matthew wanted to eat cotton candy. Of course, Arthur paid for it.
"Mama! More please!" said Matthew eagerly
"Don't eat too much or else you'll get a cavity!" you scolded gently while removing some cotton candy stuck on his nose.
"Please?" His sparkling eyes attack defeated you. So you got another one but it was smaller than the other one he ate. You guys went to different places inside the carnival like the Circus show, rode different rides. Speaking of rides, The children wanted to ride the carousel. Arthur and the children rode it, Matthew and Alfred have fun while Arthur... vomitted...and now, still feeling dizzy.
"No more..." Arthur given up, sounding like still want to vomit. You made him lie on your lap and the kids placed a wet towel on his forehead.
"You look like an idiot, screaming like that!" you laughed.
"Don't make fun of me..."
"I'm sorry Mr. Gentleman~" you gave him a bright smile. Your smile made him blush brightly and made him sit up.
"Kids, you hungry?"' he asked, You probably cured his dizziness by your smile.
"We're hungry!" they agreed.
Today, you had lots of fun. It is one of your happiest days! In your whole life, you never had never fun like that! After the carnival, the next destination was a restaurant. Arthur wanted to go to a high-class restaurant but Alfred insisted they go to the fast food chain. Needless to say, you went along with his idea. You sat beside Matthew and Arthur and Alfred in front of you.
"A gentleman like me doesn't suit being here..." he said with his head down, somewhat embarrassed.
"So, why don't you eat over there by yourself?" you questioned.
"O-Of course I can't do that!" He became a little bit uneasy when you asked him that.
"Mama's right! Don't be so picky Papa!" said Alfred and took a rather large bite at the hamburger.
"You're one to talk! You wanker!" Arthur snarled, making Alfred start to cry... He was faking it...
"Arthur, calm down."
Alfred seem enjoying Arthur being scolded by you, but you found it cute when you're scolded him, he'd shut up and pout like a kid. Matthew just happily ate his pancake of course, with maple syrup.
"___, aren't you hungry?" he asked worriedly.
"Are you mad at me?" Arthur asked again.
"Smile for me." he requested out of blue.
"Why all of a sudden?" Your cheeks tinted red.
"So you are mad at me..."
"I promise I'm not." You repeated the same answer.
"Here Mama, have a bite." said Matthew, extending his arm for you to eat the pancake piece.
"How sweet Mattie." Instead of smiling at Arthur, you gave your smile at Matthew. Arthur just looked at you and smiled like an idiot.
"Arthur...? Why are you looking at me like that? Is there a dirt at my face?" you asked.
"There is." He stood up and wipe the syrup near at your lips by his index finger and... licked it.
"W-What was that for!?" you questioned quickly, face burning.
"To taste how delicious the syrup is...?" he said, trying to look innocent.
"Did you become a pervert like Francis? Matthew, Alfred you done eating?" They nodded.
"Alfie, Mattie... Let's go." You picked up Matthew in your arms while Alfred walked by himself, leaving Arthur behind.
'What's up with him!?' you wondered. You three headed to the car and waited for Arthur to come with the car keys.
"Love, why did you leave me?" he asked while unlocking and entering the car, but you didn't respond.
"So you're not planning to tell me, huh?" he sounded unsatisfied.
An awkward atmosphere was building inside the car. The kids fell asleep at the back seat while you and Arthur weren't talking to each other. You finally got in your conscience to talk to him, so you did.
"Arthur..." you said softly, loud enough to be heard.
"I'm sorry about earlier..." Your hands were trembling, you wanted to cry a little but your tears refused to be shed. You felt so embarrassed after that.
"I understand and don't be sorry, it's my fault" he said as he placed his hand over yours.
"Hey ___, want to go to Hawaii?"
"I want to!" Alfred suddenly woke up and plopped back to sleep again.
