"Don’t say that yet." Ezio chuckles quietly.
"Then I shall save it.. but that does not mean I will change my mind," she giggled, watching him with a warm smile.
Ezio purses his lips in a petulant pout. He wanted to ask before everything happened, his parents had wanted him to settle with Cristina. A more respectable girl, they said, good wife… good mother… and remarkably average.
”..But I am glad you came back for me, I do not regret coming with you, Ezio,” Viola nodded, seeing the pout and offering him a smile.
"I couldn’t stand the thought of leaving you in the middle of what was to come."
"But you still could have.. Your family is more important, Ezio," she hummed, watching him.
Ezio pauses with that, looking up at her, “How do you know that?”
"Because you were already thinking of child before they are even born, caro.." She gave him a smile, tilting her head to one side. "You have already risked so much coming back for us.. That is how I know."
"And I’ll do what I can to keep you two safe."
”..You will be a good father, Ezio,” Viola blushed at the thought of it, still rubbing at her belly. “..You are very sweet, and caring. I know everything will work out..”
"Whatever keeps harm from befalling you and the baby."
Viola was silent for a moment, gingerly rubbing over her belly. “..Va bene, Ezio.. I will do what I can to keep us safe, I promise.”
"Aren’t you?" Ezio chuckles quietly.
"In a way, I could be," she giggled, peeking down at him with a growing smile. "..Either way, I owe my life to you, caro.."
"You owe me nothing but your silence should anyone ask of us would be appreciated."
"Us? As in our child? ..Or of the robes you are wearing now?" she hummed.
"Oh, yes… I’ve captured a beautiful damsel." Ezio raises a brow, hoping to ease the tension he unintentionally caused a little.
"So I am damsel now?" she teased him playfully, a smile returning to her lips. Viola giggled, covering her mouth with her fingertips, "Va bene."
"It’s best if something happens." Ezio gives her a pointed look.
”..I would think it best to run, if that was the case,” she frowned, sitting back into the saddle properly.
