~ Flashback (childhood days) ~
"Anya? Anyaaaaa~?" You called out as walked around the park. You felt lost without your friend around and it was so cold. You rubbed your hands together yet it hadn't helped one bit. You tried to calm down yet you felt like crying.
"Why are you looking for big sister?" asked the boy who stared at you, coldly.
"I was playing with her and I can't find her." You said as you continued rubbing your hands together.
Nikolai tilted his head. He found her interesting but the fact that she is friends with his dear sister felt like a threat. Though, he did not want to leave her alone.
"Here." He handed you over his dark blue scarf and pulled you along to where he was going. "I'll take you to her."
You couldn't say a word. It was so kind of him despite the dark aura he seemed to carry.

"(name)!" Your mother said as she embraced you.
"I'm so sorry, (name)!" Anya ran over to see how you were.
"She was lost." Nikolai spoke up as he looked rather seriously towards your mom.
"Thank you, Nik." You said as you smiled and kissed his cheek. He immediately turned away and ran to Dmitri.
"Brother, she kissed me." He said nervously.
"Da, I saw it." Dmitri said as he ruffled Nikolai's hair.
~ End of Flashback ~
You woke up. It was a sweet dream.. You just couldn't imagine yourself as a crybaby. You turned over to see Nikolai staring at you intently as he was standing across the room.
"H-Hey, Nik. Is Anya home? Dmitri?" You said, getting off the couch.
"No. Big sister called moments ago. They may be coming home tomorrow."
"Is it much of a meeting? Isn't that too long?"
"Why didn't you go with them?"
"I can't just leave you alone."
"Oh, okay...? Thanks, I guess..."
"You dreamt of me. Didn't you?"
"Ah... aha! Yeah. Well... not only you. I had my mom with me. Anya and Dmitri was there too. Wait. How'd you know?"
"I had a feeling you were..."
"Geez, Nik. That's quite... awkward. So much for assuming." You smiled as you were about to go upstairs.
"Where are you going?"
"I just want a little time for myself. I mean, I'm pretty bored." You went up, to your room.
Nikolai smiled. He cherished those usual words that were meant for him. It didn't sound any special but it meant so much to him. ...Anya and Dmitri had this plan for him.
Then his smile turned into a smirk.
On this night, he would have you all for himself.
