''(name)! i'm back!'' Spain called as he walked it (name)'s hospital room with and basket of sweet, juicy tomatoes and yummy churros. He saw her lying in bed, watching her favorite show on T.V.
She turned her head and faced him with a bright smile on her face. Though (name) were diagnosed with a cancer that she would not make recovery from, she always had a bright smile, showing she's living everyday as happy as she can be. ''Hola Papa! Was the harvest good to you?'' (name) replied with enthusiasm.
Spain couldn't help but chuckle at her remark. Whenever she smiled it warmed his heart! He looked at (name) with a happy grin,'' Si! The harvest was amazing but that's not all! I also brought you some homemade churros and some fresh tomatoes!''
She squealed with delight as (name) heard this, the girl loved her fathers churros and his and Uncle Romano's home grown tomatoes. Spain handed her one of the churros and munched on it hungrily. ''Gracias, Papa! It's really good!''
The Spainard smiled until he heard two all too fimiliar voices,''Hey ze awesome me has arrived to see mein awesome 10-year-old niece!''
''Oui, where is the petite fillie?''
(name)'s smile beamed brighter as she saw her other uncles, France and Prussia! (name) jumped out of the hospital bed (being careful with the I.V. in her wrist) and hugged her uncles tightly. ''¡Hola Tío Prussia, Tío France!! How are you?'' you smiled.
''As alvays frau-''
''Awesome!!'' (name) high fived him and looked at France. The child tipped her head to the side cutely,''Tio France, are you alright?'' her voice snapped him back to reality.
He looked down at (name) before pulling her into a bone crushing hug,''Of course I'm fine, how are mon ami?''
''I'm fine as always! But the question is what are you two doing here, don't you guys have paper work for your countries that need to be taken care of?'' she asked.
''Yeah but the unawesome paper work can wait we came to spend some time with you!'' Prussia said as he swept her off her feet and held (name) in his arms.
Her smile grew wider,'' Awesome!!''
*time skip brought to you by Gilbird*
(name) slept soundly as her father set her back into the hospital bed. He sighed as he say her sleeping form,''I can't believe that she only has a month left...'' Silent tears streamed down his face. Before anything else can happen the door opened to reveal (name's) doctor, Dr.Smith. Spain looked at him confused,''Dr. Smith, what are you doing here?''
Dr.Smith took a deep breathe,''Mr.Antonio, i need to speak with you outside in the hall for a moment.''
Spain was about to walk in the hall when he felt a hand on his shoulder, he spun around to see Prussia and France standing there with concern in their eyes,''We're coming with you.'' they said in sync. Spain nodded. They walked out to the doctor with his hand on his forehead.
''Dr.Smith what's wrong?'' Spain sounded anxious.
Dr.Smith looked into the Spainard's eyes,''It's moving faster.''
''The cancer, it's moving faster and...'' he trailed off.
''And vhat, man!?'' The Prussian was getting inpatient.
The doctor sighed,''She only has a week left...'' Spain stared at the man in shock. Was he kidding because if he was it was certainly NOT a funny joke!
Prussia grabbed the man by the collar of his shirt,''Vhat vas that?'' he hissed threateningly. France dragged Prussia off of Dr.Smith before he could say a word.
The doctor composed himself,''Mr.Antonio your daughter only has a week to live. The cancer in her is moving faster than we thought. I'm sorry.''
Antonio slowly fell to his knees and buried his face into his hands letting out bottled up tears that he couldn't let out near (name) and his friends. Why? Why her? Why (name)? Why not him? Why? That was the only thing going through his mind at the moment.
Gilbert punched the wall with frustration while Francis stood there in absolute shock. A week? A week!? What did an innocent girl like (name) do to deserve this!?
The doctor stayed silent before Antonio spoke up,''T-thank you, D-doctor...''
''i just wished we could have done more for her...'' With that said Dr.Smith left the three men alone with each other.
Spain cried a bit more before finally pulling himself together. He needed to be strong for (name). He wiped his face with the back of his hand, stood up, and walked back into (name)'s room. But to Spain's surprise, (name) was wide awake. The Spanish man walked over to the young girl and sat at the edge of her bed,''(name), is something wrong?''
The 10-year-old looked over to her father with a sad smile,''I'm gonna die sooner, aren't I?''
''Que? Que?'', Spain was shocked. He hadn't expected her to say that. ''What makes you say that?''
''I can feel it moving faster. I have for about a week now.''
''Why haven't you said anything, (name)?''
She looked at him with her innocent, (e/c) eyes and what she said broke his heart,''I didn't want you worrying, Papá.'' Antonio couldn't take it anymore. He hugged his daughter close to his chest and cried into her soft (h/c) locks for the whole night.
Throughout the week all the other countries visited (name), even Netherlands! (name) never let her smile fall the whole week long. But now it was Saturday. Everyone had showed up to see her one last time. Romano and Italy brought her some pasta and tomatoes, China and Japan brought her some Hello Kitty and Vocaloid plushies, The German brothers brought her a silver cross just like their's, America played video games with her (not to mention getting beaten 5 times in a row), The Magic Trio preformed a few tricks for her, and Russia and France brought her two vases with sunflowers and roses. The Nordic 5 and many other countries arrived to give her gifts. She smiled brightly at everyone,''Thank you everyone, it means a lot to me!''
Hungary and Lichtenstein each gave her a tight hug. ''Of course we'd be here you're like a little sister to us!'' Lili smiled.
''If it's not to much trouble can i have Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Norway, England, Iceland, Romano, and Switzerland around the bed, please?'' The men made their way to the hospital bed and watched (name) sit up and reach her small hands to the corners of their mouths. Lifting up the corner of each man's mouth into a smile. (name)'s grin widened,''There now you look even handsome. You guys should really smile more.'' No matter how sad everyone was they couldn't keep the smile off their faces because of (name).
But the smile was soon gone when (name) coughed up a bit of blood; Spain grabbed a tissue a covered her mouth with it. After her coughing fit ended, Spain removed the tissue and gasped that it was soaked in (name)'s blood. Acting as if it never happened, (name) stretched her arms and yawned,''I'm sleepy...''
Just as she said that a nurse walked in,''Alright everyone, (name) needs her rest. You can come back tomorrow." Just as everyone was leaving she gave everyone a big hug.
"Can everyone do me a big favor please?" (Name) asked. Everyone stayed silent as she spoke, "I don't want you to be sad, any of you...so can you promise me not to be too sad...?" Everyone looked around at each other before agreeing. "Thanks! Bye everyone!!" She waved. Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine gave (name) a big hug being as they babysat her when she was younger. Once everyone but Romano and Italy and Spain were gone you got into her hospital bed. (name) didn't want to tell her father that that she was felling weaker and that every time she moved it hurt, she needed to be strong. (name) thought for a moment before calling to her father,''Papá, can you sleep ing the bed with me please?'' she asked.
Spain looked at his little one before nodding and climbing with her. Italy and Romano slept in two different hospital beds brought in by the nurses,''Good night, bella. I love you!'' Italy said before starting to drift on to slumber.
''Good night, ragazza.'' Romano mumbled. ''I love you...''
(name) smiled,''Good night, Zio (uncle) Italy. Good night, Zio (uncle) Romano. I love you too!'' (name) tuned to her father and snuggled into his chest. ''Buenas noches (good night), Papá. I love you with all my heart.'' she cooed.
Spain hugged his daughter closer,''I love you, mi niña (my girl). Buenas noches (good night).'' (names)'s breathing became heavy, signaling that she was asleep. Spain kissed his daughter's forehead and fell into a dreamless sleep.
*Time skip to the next morning*
Spain woke up felling something cold in his arms; groggily opening his eyes, he saw his daughter pale, cold, and not breathing what so ever. The Spanish man shot up holding his daughter and cried, trying to wake her up from her never ending sleep. His wailing woke up two certain Italians, causing one of them to grumble,''What are you crying about, tomato bastard!?''
Spain looked up from his daughter's hair,''She's gone...'' he said barely above a whisper, but loud enough for the brothers to hear. Italy began to bawl while Romano tried tokeepaway the tears that were threatening to fall. They all gathered around the girls limp body and cried...
*Time Skip to a month later*
''Come on you tomato bastard we're going to beach, hurry up!!'' Romano yelled at the Spaniard who was rushing to grab everything.
Spain smiled,''Okay got everything! Let's go!'' Though Spain didn't have his dear daughter with him, he kept his promise to her to be as happy as ever that she wasn't suffering anymore. He jumped in the driver's seat, with Romano in the passenger's seat as they drove to the sandy paradise. (name)'s father kept his promise and that was all she needed to be happy.
