He used to be pretty popular, you would joke that he ruled the world. After the first World War, many people feared him. America held a very bad grudge against him for sinking the Lusitania. Nobody was prepared for what would come many years later, in World War II. It wasn't his fault. After World War I, something inside him snapped, causing him to turn into a second player version of himself. He somehow tried to make a new race, his own race. You knew better, you knew this wasn't the real him. He was broken from the first war.

You were trapped. Kidnapped. Annexed. Taken over. There were thousands of words to describe your very situation. You starred down at your ankles, bare feet dusted in dirt, with sores around your ankles from the chains that had been placed there. Your upper body was no better, your arms were chained to the walls. The chains were long enough that your arms weren't suspended in the air.
So, thankfully your arms could rest, you wish you could say the same about your wrists. The flesh was red and sore from the chains rubbing against it. Both the flesh of your ankles and wrists have became raw and extremely painful.
You looked around your tiny prison cell. The walls were made of grey, mossy bricks. A large wooden door was situated right in front of you, bars guarding the only slot in the door. There was a tiny window above your head which let in some light. At night you could see the moon and twinkling of the stars, which reminded you of home.

You sat on your light brown couch, a fuzzy, multicolored blanket draped over your shoulders as you read through the stack of books you had gotten earlier that day.
What else better to do on a dragging Saterday night than read a crap-load of manga in your favorite pajamas, curled up in your living room and watching CSI? At the moment, nothing had seemed greater than what you were doing at that moment.
You lightly licked your thumb, turning a rather long page in your book as you continued to skim the next one. Even though you had started the book not thirty minutes ago, it didn't stop you from being two pages from the end. That's what you loved about manga- no matter what the plot, it always seemed to catch you attention enough to where you couldn't stop reading until you were done.

Slowly you watched the small, shy flame flicker on the burnt wick of the candle on the table in front of you. All was dark inside the living room as you sat on the floor, resting your elbow on the wooden surface of coffee table and noticing how the small mass of immense heat would wave and bend with each breath you let out.
You sighed and leaned back against the soft couch behind you, watching the flame dance in the darkness around it, fighting it off like a knight would a dragon. On these silent of nights you would often find an untouched candle within the house and light it, sitting in front of the burning substance to watch how the flame moved and glided gracefully and expressing the passion that you wished you could express to your one and only love. But you couldn’t, at least not at that moment.

At the sound of the whistle, the four training would drop for fifty push-ups, then continue running. A simple tactic, really, but with those slacking it became harder for him to properly train the four.

Japan was well into his fourty-third lap and Gilbert was on his fifty-eighth. Due to the whistle, they've all done the same amount of push-ups.
