Vergil looks at Nicky curiously, wondering why she hasn't begun eating. "Nicky, it's okay, go right ahead and start eating while I go get our drinks. What would you like? We have water, sprite, coke, wine. Anything you'd like, I can get you." Vergil gets up and waits for an answer from Nicky before he heads to the kitchen for the drinks.
Nicky blinked. "I can eat this?" She asked, looking hungrily to the food. "Thank you so much. I'll just have water."
"Of course you can eat that Nicky, I made it and I am putting it in front of you. I would not put it infront of you just to tease you. You can even have more than that if you're still hungry after." Vergil says as he walks into the kitchen to get the drinks. And comes out a minutes later with the drinks and puts the water infront of Nicky. "Here you go" He says as he sits down in his seat with his drink and begins to eat, also.
Nicky quickly began to eat, starving. She nodded to him gratefully and let the good food fill her empty stomach.
Vergil smiles at Nicky as she starts to consume her food, and he consumes his. After they are finished Vergil asks "Would you like more, or do you want to skip right to desert?"
"Can I have more?" Nicky asked timidly. "I'm sorry, I'm really hungry." She whispered, looking away. She hugged her bony, bruised frame.
Vergil smiles slightly. "Sure thing, it's nice to see someone who enjoys my cooking for once. My parents are always away on businesses, so, I usually eat alone. Gets pretty lonely from time to time" Vergil says as he puts another helping of food on Nicky's plate.
Nicky smiled gratefully at him, starting to eat the second helping. She was starting to feel warm and sleepy, eyes drooping a little.
Vergil notices Nicky getting sleepy, so, he gently picks her up and carries her to the guest room, and tucks her in so, she can sleep. And quietly walks out of the room to clean the kitchen, and put the left overs away.
Nicky struggled in his arms a little. "I'm not tired." She protested weakly. But she was soon falling asleep.
Vergil smiles as he watches Nicky sleep, then goes and cleans the kitchen. Once he finishes he sits in the living room to watch some t.v. But does his and Nicky's homework.
Nicky slept quietly, curled into a tiny little ball. She had a soft breathy snore, and her hair fell in her face. She slept for a long time, exhausted.
Vergil finishes the homework, and doses off on the couch, but wakes up at 6 a.m. to check on Nicky, to make sure she's fine, as he watches her sleep, he can't help but think how beautiful she would be with clothes that fit her properly, and if her hair allowed her to show her face. Everything about Nicky left an unsolved mystery that Vergil was dying to discover.
Nicky started to wake up, stirring quietly. Her body felt stiff and pained, but she felt rested. She was very dioriented when she first woke up, jolting in confusion at her surroundings, panicked until she remembered where she was.
Vergil knocks at Nicky's door. "I brought you breakfast, hope you slept well" Vergil says as he walks in with a tray full of food.
Nicky blinked at him and rubbed her eyes, then hugged herself in her dirty old hoodie. "I-I'm sorry, I didn't mean to fall asleep..." She whispered.
Vergil kisses the top of Nicky's head. "Hey, don't you worry about it, you can sleep here whenever you'd like"
"I should've gone home last night." Nicky whispered worriedly, biting her lip. Her gray eyes were wide with worry.
Vergil sits next to Nicky. "Its okay, why don't you eat, and if you'd like, when I take you home, I'll explain to your dad what happened, but you're welcome to stay here as long as you'd like"
"I-I don't think that's a good idea." Nicky whispered nervously. She didn't quite look at him, ashamed and afraid. Her old clothes had left black smears on the clean sheets, as if from soot.
