Shadow!Italy(Fauchereve) x Reader
It was quite… alluring, the idea of a world where all your wishes could come true, even more so was it true that you wouldn’t want to leave such a place. Dreams were nice, it would be nice there, now wouldn’t it?
No need to worry about monsters in your nightmares, or even about the problems in the real world… You would… Much rather be in a beautiful dream.
So, it had been a pretty nice day for a day in your life, no large problems or the like, but you had gone straight into your room and fallen asleep, excited for the dream to come, though you knew it was wrong.
A bright world, delicate butterflies dancing in the air. Everything illuminated with sunlight and random flowers scattered in a disorderly fashion along the ground, then a cheerful and familiar voice broke the silence,
“Hello~!” It called, and your gaze landed on your friend of many years. Oh- That was the disguise that the Fauchereve tended to take around you, though you didn’t really know the difference(Not to say it wasn’t growing clearer to you, however);
“Oh, Hey (Friend Name)..!” Came the light response, as you folded your hands in front of yourself, smiling up towards them. The more you came to the world, however, the more you came to this place, the more… off your friend seemed, but you shrugged it off and tightly grabbed onto their hand.
This caused them to smile brightly, starting to lead you off somewhere, “What do you want to do today~?” Came the question, though then they trailed off; “…Did you decide if you want to stay here with me?” They continued, waving off their last question as if it was never even asked of her.
Hesitating, you bit your lip before nodding in response, “Y-Yeah, I d-did… I…” You trailed off, frowning a bit at the ground as your friend tilted his head curiously, “I-I want to stay here… H-Here with you, where I c-can feel safe and… L-Loved…” Came the small statement, causing them to grin in a happy manner,
“Yay~!” They giggled, disguise then fading away, causing the females eyes to widen a bit,
“Y-You…” Came the small stutter as he chuckled a little bit,
“Sorry, I kind of… lied about who I am~ But don’t worry~” He giggled, “My name is Fiorello.” He re-introduced, having before simply said he was your friend, “(Y/N), I’m going to protect you from the evils of the world, alright~?”
Wincing a bit at the idea, you hesitantly nodded once again, knowing you, most likely had no actual choice in the matter, “O…Okay…”
This, too, caused him to grin and his grip on your hand tightened almost feeling as though it was actually burning, “Yay! What should we do? I think we should have milkshakes!” He cheered lightly, “And go find timber-tigers!” He giggled, fondly using the strange name for squirrels.
Blinking, you responded with yet another nod, this was going to be a long… Dream, to be honest.
