He walked away from you, inside of the ship. If you didn’t figure out why he wanted you to remember so badly, then you were either (1) running away or (2) stupider then Alfred. He sighed. He still couldn’t believe that he actually kissed you. He was so in the moment and so hurt at the same time that you didn’t remember that he just did it on impulse.
He sighed and walked past his cabin and continued down the hall. He wanted to get lost. He wanted to get lost inside of his own ship. But that was impossible. He knew this ship like the back of his hand. He knew how to get everywhere, where everything was. He ran a hand through his hair. He was going to have to apologize to you. But, he just couldn’t bring himself to do it yet, not after he just kissed you and walked away.
He clenched his fists. No. He wasn’t going to apologize. He was just going to try harder to make you remember who he is to you. Once that task was completed, he would make good

You woke up the next morning feeling well rested, thankfully. You tried to sit up when you realized that there was an arm draped across your waist. You blinked and followed the arm back to its person. You nearly screamed when you saw that it was Arthur, shirtless, sleeping next to you. You clamped a hand over your mouth from letting out your yelp and you examined the sleeping man next to you.
He looked very peaceful. Almost childlike. You also had to admit he had a pretty nice body, lean and muscular, but not too muscular, just enough to be attractive for his build. You couldn’t help but smile. Then, you mentally smacked yourself. You can't be thinking this. He kidnapped you, said he was going to take you to your real betrothed and then he practically locks you in this room and forces you to eat. You slipped out of his arm, slowly, careful not to wake him.
You couldn’t help thinking those thoughts; even if he did do all those things to you. The fact of the matter was,

You laid down in Arthur’s staring at the ceiling. You must have fallen asleep due to sheer boredom because the next thing you knew you were being shaken awake. You groggily opened your eyes and saw Arthur’s first mate, Alfred, sitting on the bed.
“Alfred?” You said your voice thick with sleep.
“So you remember my name, huh?” he said and grinned.
You got up in a sitting position. “Yeah. Why are you here?”
“Arthur asked me to keep you company.” He explained. “I guess there wasn’t enough room on the deck for a hero like me, so he sent me down here.”
You nodded. “Do you happen to be American?”
“Sure am!” He grinned, giving you a thumbs up. “How could you tell?”
“Your voice and how your so loud.” You replied.
He laughed. “Ya know, I think I'm going to like you.” He gave you a smile.
You smiled back. “The feeling is mutual.”

It was the night before your wedding day. You were standing by your open window, your chin resting in your hands. The cool wind blew back your (h/l) (h/c) hair and the curtains. White moon light spilled into the room. You were staring at the sky. When you saw what you were looking for, you blinked. You found the first star of the night. You closed your eyes.
“Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
Please grant my birthday wish,
Don’t make me marry Vash.” You sang.
You looked at the sky one more time and sighed. You closed your window and retreated to bet, praying your wish would come true.
He watched as you closed your window and a small smile formed on his face. You haven’t changed one bit. You looked exactly like he remembered. Clear, beautiful (e/c) eyes and soft (h/c) hair. Oh how he longed to just take you now. But he had a better plan. A plan that involved the wedding already.

A week has passed since you remembered Arthur and since that night. You never out right told Arthur that you loved him, only that one time when he was asleep. You weren’t quite ready to put it into words.
Since that night you continued your training with Alfred and Peter. Alfred kept grinning at you with a look that said that he knew something that you didn’t know. Though, despite the looks he gave you, you steadily improved with your sword play. Arthur even watched in a majority of the time that he wasn’t yelling at the rest of the crew to get their asses in gear.
After breakfast on the seventh day, you had gone up to go train like you normally would. Alfred had told you that he thought you were ready to face him in a match and said that today would be the day that he would put you to the test. Once you got up to the deck you saw Peter sitting on the crate that Alfred usually sat on and Alfred standing with his sword drawn at his side and looked at you with a toothy

After Peter finished applying the bandages on Arthur's wound, Alfred helped him stand up and went with Arthur to assess the damage to the ship. One of the masts was broken and there were a few holes in the side of the ship and the deck.
"Damn. Fixing this is going to take weeks." Arthur muttered, a hand on his chest over his wound, and banging his other hand on the railing.
Alfred put his hand on his captains shoulder. "We'll work as fast as we can to fix the ship."
Arthur growled and stared at the horizon. "I hate to think of what the Bad Touch Trio will do to her."
"I know." Alfred said. "Me too."
Gilbert pulled you down the halls of his ship. You didn’t bother trying to memorize the turns he made. It didn’t matter. Nothing mattered any more. Nothing.
Finally Gilbert stopped in front of a door. He opened it and pushed you in.
"Zis vas your room ze last time you vere vith us." Gilbert said.
You didn’t say anything, just stood there.

A week after Arthur and his crew met up with Vash's crew, the repairs to the ship were completed. He hoped that he would be able to take the ship of the BTT soon before you started to lose hope. He turned to look at Vash.
"They most likely decided to make a pit stop in either France, Spain, or Germany." He told the long blonde haired man.
"And what makes you so sure about that?" Vash said.
Arthur gave him a look that said You have got to be kidding me right now. But out loud he said, "I've been hunting and tracking the BTT ever since my early days as a pirate. I think I know them better than they do. Know your enemy, they say."
Vash eyes the Brit, still completely unsure if he could be trusted. Eventually, after Arthur's I'm right stare, Vash gave in.
"All right, fine. Hopefully we get (name) soon before the BTT do anything to her." Vash said.
"Yeah." Arthur muttered. I'm not going to let them lay a hand on her again, he added as an afterthought.

Four days. It's been four days since you’ve been kidnapped and since Arthur died. Your voice still didn’t come back. It was so weird. Everything felt okay to you. Nothing hurt. You throat never hurt or anything either.
Every night your dreams were filled with terrifying visions. First, flashbacks of Arthur's death. Then total darkness and familiar voices. Your own as well as Gilbert's, Francis's, and Antonio's. Then towards the end, Arthur's voice was added to the mess. Every night it started to get clearer. First, muffled voices, barely whispers. The second night, the voices became clearer. You could only make out the tone of the voices, enough to tell who they belonged to. The third night you were able to make out what Arthur was saying. You wondered if it was the memory Arthur mentioned in passing before he…
Part of you wished it was the memory. The other part wished it was just a dream. Another part, deep down inside of you, was absolutely terrified to rememberin

Two weeks. Two bloody weeks of sailing the ocean. Two weeks without so much of a hint as to where the BTT was. Arthur and his crew were on their way to Spain where Arthur assumed the BTT would be going first. He banged his hands on the rail of the ship in frustration.
Luckily, however, his wound was healing nicely. There was still a faint pain from it from time to time and he still had to keep it covered, but it was no longer bleeding or was as debilitating as it was before. All thought, it was rather annoying when the pain flared.
He had so much he needed to pay back to Gilbert Beilschmidt. He growled low in his throat and turned around, leaning back against the rail. He took off his hat and ran a hand through his messy golden blonde hair. Each day that past just got the Brit more and more frustrated, angry, and made his fuse shorter and shorter. He was reaching his wits end.
Arthur looked up to see Alfred walking over to him. "What is it?"
Alfred grinned. "We'

“Hey! Wait up!”
The blonde haired boy turned to look back at who had just called out to him. He was walking out of a really dingy and run down cabin. Behind him he saw a little girl about his age, just under ten years old. She had (h/l) (h/c) hair and (e/c) eyes. The boy smiled at the girl.
“Hurry up slowpoke!” He said his voice thick with a British accent.
“It’s not my fault you're so fast, Arty!” The girl countered.
“Come on, (name)!”
The girl caught up to the boy, almost tripping, but before she fell the boy caught her. The girl smiled up at him, looking into his striking green eyes.
“Where are you going?” The girl asked.
“The usual spot.” He said. “Care to join me?” he gave the girl a toothy grin.
“Yes! Let’s go!” she said, grabbing the boy by the hand and pulled him along with her.

Arthur turned his head back to glare at the man who shackled his wrists.
"We had an accord, Vash." He said, his voice dripping with venom.
Vash smirked. "I only honor my deals with honorable men." He turned to one of the crew members. "Tale him and the other and lock them in cells. We set sail for Britain soon."
The crew members complied and took Alfred, Gilbert, Antonio, Francis, and Arthur away. When the initial shock of what just happened wore off, you started toward Arthur. But before you could take two steps toward the golden haired man, a pair of hands grabbed your arms, pulling you back. You turned to see one of Vash's crew members holding you back. You put on your best glare.
"LET GO OF ME!" You shouted and shook from his grasp, turning to kick him in the groin before running off to Arthur, your hand out stretched.
This time arms wrapped around your waist. Before Arthur disappear through the door, you saw him look at you with an expression of longing and anger. When he was gone

Peter shook his head. "No. They'll need to do that part themselves. But I think you’re the only one who can get Arthur and the Bad Touch Trio to work together."
You tilt your head to the side. "Why can't we bust them out then?"
"Vash has the key."
You were silent for a moment. Then you let out a sigh, looking to the side. "I'm getting married in a week. I don't think I'll be able to get those four to work together. I can wipe away years' worth of hate in one night."
"You don’t need to make them like each other, I mean, I know you certainly won't want to see any of the Bad Touch Trio ever again after this if you can help it. They just need to work together to take down Vash and get out of here." Peter explained.
You sigh, following him through the halls that led to the cells. "I'll try. But how will we be able to get the key from Vash?"
"I'll take care of that." Peter said, smirking devilishly.
You nodded and Peter opened up another iron door, leading to the actual cells. Yo

He winked at you. "I've come to rescue you again, little pirate."
Vash drew his sword and stood between you and the American. "You will not be taking her anywhere."
"I don’t think that that’s up to you." Alfred said, giving the man a cold glare as he drew his own sword. "I think the little pirate should decide for herself."
"My daughter is not a pirate!" You turned to see your mother, standing from the pew. "And she wants to stay here and marry Vash!"
You were silent. Oh how you wished you didn’t have to tell your mother the truth. You sighed and then turned to Alfred.
"Give me the sword. I have something to show everyone here." You muttered and stepped out from behind Vash and held your hand out for the sword.
"You sure you want to do this?" Alfred asked.

Arthur sat in the corner of the cell with Alfred next to him, they looked like they were deep in conversation. If all went according to plan, then Peter should be sending one of the key guards down to check on them, thinking that the prisoners broke out. Gilbert, Francis and Antonio were pacing around the cell, waiting for the guard. Moments later, the clanging of a metal door resounded around the dungeon. Within seconds, the guard came into view.

He and Prussia returned to the school about two hours after the girls did. The first thing England wanted to do was to find you and Hungary and apologize. Apologize to Hungary for almost killing her and to apologize to you for keeping secrets after he promised no more of them. He felt absolutely terrible for the whole ordeal. He should have just told you like Hungary told him to do in the first place.
He screwed this up more than he did the first time when France had gotten in the way. He was such a bloody idiot. The first time since the revolutionary war, he despised himself. He ruined something, again, with someone he cared for deeply. Why does he always so these things?!
