"Luca?" Alberto asks. Luca was packing to go to school for the second year. They had spend an entire summer together, but it wasn't enough. Alberto didn't want Luca to leave again.
"Yes, Alberto?" Luca smiles at him which just makes Alberto smile without even thinking. He knows that Luca loves school, but Alberto loves him more than Luca could ever love school.
"Do you remember when we were free?" Luca had a look of confusion and Alberto was about to begin laughing but recovered quickly to continue what he was saying.
"You know, last summer. We had no parents telling us what to do, it was just you, me, and our vespa experiments."
"And Giulia." Luca adds in, nodding.
"No, no, no. I mean before that. When we were on the island and it was just you and me." Luca acknowledges this with a nod.
"What are you getting at?" He asks.
"I- I don't know... I guess I just miss it. I miss you." Alberto realizes what he said and blushes, looking down. He quickly glances up and sees Luca smiling his cute smile, the one Alberto can never get enough of.
"I missed you everyday during the school year, Alberto. Ti amo."
"Ti amo anch'io."
