Tonight is pretty peaceful. The crickets chittered and sang their songs,hiding in the shrubs and plants. The birds every so often made a soft snore or a chirp inside the nests. A few hoots and trills from the owls. It was a pretty calming and relaxing night.
...except for inside one of the houses. The Nordic house,to be exact. 'Come sit down and talk' they said. 'We're going to deal with this calmly', they said. It doesn't take rocket science to know that the Nordics aren't very good at being calm.
The talk had started out pretty well,but then the stupid Dane had to remind (M/N) of his...uhm...problem. That's when things started flying. Most of them hit Denmark's face.
"How many times do I have to tell you guys,my blindness is NOT a problem?!" The young capital yelled,struggling to fight a hammer away from Sweden,but with not avail. Norway sighed,crossing his arms and furrowing his brows.
"(M/N),it is a problem. If you can't see,then you can't protect yourself." The Norwegian calmly said,his eyes showing no emotion. (M/N) growled and jumped on Norway,knocking him onto the couch. Denmark jumped to his feet and picked up the smaller male,said man squirming and kicking in his arms.
"You guys are assholes,you know that?" (M/N) screamed,finally pushing his way out of the other's grip. It was Finland's turn to talk,he stood up and walked over to the capital. He was taller than (M/N),so the capital had to look up to glare at him. The Finnish man smiled softly,putting a hand on the other's shoulder.
"(M/N)-" Finland started,but was cut off by the small capital shrugging his hand off and walking away. He stopped walking and turned back to the 5 countries.
"I don't need your pity." He whispered angrily before going up the stairs to his room and slamming the door.
The five of them were silent for a second,before Norway sighed heavily,turning to the others. Sure all of the Nordics were worried about (M/N),but Norway was the most worried. The blind capital was Oslo,hiscapital. And to Norway,Oslo was like his son.
"What should we do now?" Finland asked,scratching Hana behind the ears. Everyone shrugged,and Norway stayed silent in thought. Denmark sat back down in his spot on the couch,rubbing the bump on his head. The bump may or may not have been from a beer bottle that was chucked at him...
If the situation wasn't so serious,Iceland would be teasing the Dane about getting beat up by a little blind teen. But it wasn't time for jokes right now.
The Nordic 5 had just discovered that (M/N) has been getting bullied at school...viciously bullied. Not just insults or a kick or two. He had come home from school that day with bruises and cuts and burns all over him. If Sweden and Denmark hadn't been there to hold back Norge and Fin...some teens would probably be in a dumpster behind the nearest taco bell by now.
"You know," Iceland started,saying something for the first time since Oslo had started flipping out. "We should probably put him in counselling. His anger issues are getting even worse now." The other four all nodded in agreement. Denmark sighed and rubbed his temples in frustration.
"Why did we even send him to that school anyway?" He hissed angrily at himself.
"It was supposed to help him...maybe if he had friends he wouldn't focus very much on his blindness." Iceland murmured,picking up Mr.Puffin.
"What good was any of this going to do him?!" Norway yelled,the outburst causing the other Nordics to look at him in shock. Even Norway himself was caught off guard. He cleared his throat.
"Sorry." He apologized before walking to his own room.
Norway laid in his bed,staring up at the ceiling. He has been laying here for at least an hour now,and he still couldn't fall asleep. He was too worried about (M/N).
'Should I go talk to him alone? Or maybe apologize?' He tossed the thought around,and finally decided that he should. Sighing,he slipped out of bed and walked towards the stairs. Silently making his way up to his capital's door,he knocked. After hearing a quiet 'what the hell do you want',he opened the door and poked his head in.
"I wanted to talk to you..." Norway whispered,letting himself in and shutting the door behind him. (M/N) let out a small 'hmph' noise and rolled over,giving him the middle finger.
"Go away. I'm trying to sleep." Oslo murmured,not in the mood to fight with anyone. Norway walked over and sat on the foot of his bed,causing (M/N) to sit up with a loud sigh.
"Do you need me to spell it out for you?" (M/N) hissed,crossing his arms. "I don't want to talk. Especially with you." He glared at the older male. The blonde ignored his outburst and just sat there.
After a few awkward moments,Norway finally said:
"Why do you think your blindness isn't a problem?" (M/N) narrowed his eyes and looked away from him,clenching his teeth.
"Why do you think it is?" He shot back,causing the Norwegian's eyes to widen slightly in surprise.
...why did he think it's a problem? After more silence and thinking,he replied.
"We're just worried about you." He whispered,looking at his capital sadly.
"Look,I don't care if you guys worry about me. Just don't pity me,will you?" (M/N) mumbled,looking at the floor.
That's why he freaks out if you call him blind?...now that he thought about it,when ever someone said he was blind,they would pity him and tell them how sorry they were and give him special treatment. He never realized it before but...they were only making him even more different than he already was.
Let me tell you this,(M/N) is a hard-headed kid. Despite his blindness,he was always the kind of person who never got sad or depressed.
...so when the Norwegian looked over and saw the strong willed teen crying into his pillow,he freaked out. He didn't know what to do! He never really had to comfort a teen before! Sure he used to comfort little Oslo when he was younger,but he hasn't had to do so in years!
Hesitantly,he leaned in and hugged the sobbing teen. (M/N) raised his head. Norway smiled, even though he knew the other couldn't see it.
"Os...it's okay. We're sorry for...pitying you...and-" He apologized,but was cut off when he was tackle-hugged.
"I-It's okay...Nor-nor..." The country smiled upon hearing the nickname that he hadn't heard in years.
After tucking (M/N) into bed,to which the teen protested and stated that he's a 'big boy now',Norway turned towards the door. But before he could even take a step,he felt a tug on his shirt. He turned to find Oslo hiding his face in his other hand,blushing madly.
"N-Nor-nor...can I sleep in your bed tonight? L-Like when I was little?" Norway smiled.
