GermanyxReader - Don't Expect AnythingYou could feel the heat radiating off your cheeks, as you tried to keep up with the beat of the song that you were listening to. Your breath came out in short, heavy pants, but you still pushed yourself, tried to keep on going.
Because, if you didn't, you knew-
"[Name]! Don't slack! Keep on going!"
Yes. THAT would happen.
You turned around to see your German boyfriend jogging right behind you.
W-wait...wasn't he JUST in front of me? And why is he JOGGING, yet...faster than me?
Not being able to form coherent sentences, you just nodded.
"Just one more lap." He called, as he ran past, ignoring the baleful glares that you sent him behind his back.
Your eyes trailed him, following him across the track, until he came to a stop. Grabbing the nearest bottle of water, he drunk some and then poured some on to his face. The hair that he meticulously kept slicked back was falling on his face now, and you gritted your teeth.
Glancing quickly behind you, you noticed Kiku prodding Feliciano t

"Vee~" Feliciano decided now would be a good time to step in and help his confused friend. "What he means is that you should speak to her like you speak to us!"
Ludwig was even more confused than before. "But, what do you mean just-"
"You can't speak to her about your DVD collection, though. Heck, that'd probably put her off..."
"Bruder!" was all that Ludwig could exclaim.
"Well, if she is your friend, and we are your friends, then just talk to her like you talk to us!" Feliciano continued. Both Ludwig and Gilbert paused to turn around and listen to the Italian. "And if bella [Name] feels the same way that you do for her, you'll both become good friends, no?"

He nodded, in reply. "Three dogs."
"Three dogs?" Her eyes seemed to light up with joy. "What are their names?"
"Uh...Blackie, Berlitz a-and Aster." He looked away from her, all of a sudden, hoping that she had not noticed his slight stutter. He had many topics in mind, on what she could talk about polite chatter and such, but...his dogs? He was absolutely unprepared for that!

Gilbert laughed. "Oh, don'tcha worry, West! Feliciano and I spent ages on this list! It's foolproof!" Ludwig bit back his comment about how this list was made by people whom he could consider 'fools' just in time.
Involuntarily clearing his throat, he looked at the list that he was holding. His brother's messy handwriting was scrawled all over a page, and there seemed to be...doodles made by Feliciano all around the edge of the paper.
