Sit down, Sunbeam, I'll read to you
And though you're so young now
I'll teach you just like I ought to
I'm your sister, I'm your friend, and I'll always love you
Stay still, Sunbeam, I'll hold your hand
And though I can't stop the bleeding
We are here, we are waiting, we are praying for you
Come here, Sunbeam, come dance with me
And though you shouldn't run too fast
I hope you will see
You are ours, you are safe here, we won't ever leave
Wait here, Sunbeam, I'll get what you need
And though you're already growing up
We must make sure you don't bleed
Don't move, don't cry, don't ask me why
I know you're scared, Sunbeam, know I am too
And though I can't say what will happen
I hope we'll make it through
We will go back; return, we will bow to you
I'm reaching for you, Sunbeam, I'm searching for you
And though it is hopeless
I confess I thought they withdrew
I can't find you, I've lost you, don't know where you are
I'm so sorry, S

I walk to it, and open it.
It is one of the guards.
"Miss, I am to take you to the basement.
There are riots.
Please Miss, for your safety." he says.
Why would the guards suddenly care for my family's safety?
We are prisoners of the rebellion.
But, I get up, and follow him

I see my family there.
My sisters, my father and mother.
The guards gather us together.
Their leader pulls out a slip of paper.
He starts reading the orders that we are to be executed,
Before any of us can do anything,
he takes a pisol, and fires at my father's head.
He collapses in a growing stream of blood.

She gets shot too,

There you were again. Crying in the loo. Hiding from everyone. You hated that you were left out in class.
Wondering why they did so, you heard a voice. "_______, are you alright?"
You blinked. Arthur Kirkland. What is he doing in the girls room? Oh yea.. he always know you would hide here. You got up. 'He's worried..' you thought 'that's why he is here..' You got out the loo and saw his worried face. Arthur saw the tears rolling over your cheeks and the red eyes from it.
"Come.." he said gently "let's wash up your face." He walked to the little water fountain with you. Washing your tears away he asked "They left you out again?.." You nodded. Drying your face with the paper you sighed. "I just want to be friends with them, more not." You said almost hopeless.
Arthur looked at you when you were at his home. You drink some tea to calm yourself a bit more

“You take one step back, then one step forward.” Your instructor Arthur Kirkland calmly says as you nervously glance back at your feet then back at him. The two of you have been working on this dance for at least a month now and still you had trouble concentrating on the ‘simple’ steps your British guide was giving you. “No, (y/n) don’t look at me. You need to watch the motion of my feet in order to learn the waltz correctly.” Arthur states, noticing how you kept fumbling his directions. “Sorry,” you whimpered giving a sorry expression “could you repeat that?”
Arthur sighed, “Watch me.” You both looked down towards his feet, as he motioned first forwards, backwards, left, then the right. And of course, you had to follow along, but kept missing every step.

The following morning, you got up early, (well, earlier than you usually get up) but not on purpose. Seriously, you were going to kill the birds outside your window even though you owe them for waking you up because you forgot to set your alarm clock last night.
With a sound similar to a grunt, you rolled over to grab something, which ended up being your phone, to throw at the annoyingly loud, screeching (they were, you swore) flying mammals. They must have sensed your killer intent, for they suddenly shut up and flew away. Those lucky bastards. Next time you’d get them.
With your current problem resolved, you unlocked your iPhone, noting that the time was only seven o’clock. You checked your facebook, email, and other important things. Seeing that there was nothing out of the ordinary, you were about to throw the small electronic down on the bed, but stopped when you remembered you forgot to look at your account on your fanfic website (A/N: Just go with it).

From a young age, other people in your town were amazed by your beauty. Your mother used to tell you that it would be easy to find a good husband. When she was still living, you found pride in the villager's comments that you looked so beautiful, just like your mother. However, after she died, you stopped being social entirely.

When you were seventeen, you had discovered something very disturbing. On a day just like any other, you entered your father's office, hoping to find him inside, busily working. He had warned you never to enter his office, but you were seventeen now. What could he possibly be working on that you couldn't understand?

It was as if the sight in front of you pulled a certain trigger in your body, because that was when all of your tears stopped completely. That was when your emotions had gone numb. That was when you didn't even bother calling out Arthur's name anymore. That was when you just sat back and watched as the lifeboat rowed away from him, from everyone else that had died in the freezing water.
Arthur was dead.
Never to be seen again.
But the words didn't make any sense. They just bounced around in your head, unable to properly plant themselves into your brain. Into your memories.
All you did was stare ahead. Stare blankly ahead as the lifeboat kept rowing away from the bodies, from the spot where the Titanic sank.

You turned and saw your brother, Prussia, running up the stairs to a big house, well more like mansion; it seems being a country had its perks, the house he shared with Germany and Austria, as you were told by your best friend Hungary. "Zis is our home. Follow me und I'll take you to your room."
You nodded and grabbed your bags and followed the white hair of your brother, leaving the blonde haired blue eyes of your other brother behind by the taxi getting the rest of his own bags. Inside looked even bigger than it did outside.
It seemed more like a hotel then a home if anything. As soon as you walked in you saw stairs that led upstairs and from there a hall way that went to either side of the house. Prussia was standing at the top of the stairs, looking down at you expectantly. You followed him and he took you down the hall to the left.

To be in love was a gift, a huge gift, especially in today’s world where no one paid any attention to others at all. Of course there were people who would yell “I love you!” whenever someone did them a favor, but truly being in love as people were meant to love? That was rare. There was only one thing that was even rarer than being in love: true, passionate, romantic, unconditional, requited love. Arthur, a young man at the age of twenty-six, didn’t lead the most luxurious life. He was a journalist who lived in a two bedroom house with his wife. She, a young woman at the age of twenty-five, didn’t lead a luxurious life either, for she was a mere schoolteacher, not saying that it was easy by any means. However, they shared a perfect marriage.
