Not A Kind Man, by Pegasus_Eridana
Barca does not speak gently to him, barely even acknowledges his presence, but often he sees the boy following him as if a shadow. And if Barca makes it known that none of the men are to touch Pietros in any way, that is not kindness. It is merely that the boy clearly believes himself to be under Barca’s protection, and it costs Barca nothing to grant it.
But Barca is not a kind man.
Adult, canon divergence, fix-it. This pairing deserved better, and this fic delivered.
