My Holy Rome had come back for me.
At first, I had thought that I was hallucinating againHoly Rome was dead, or at least that's what they had told Mr. Roderich and Miss Elizaveta.
But no, it was my Holy Rome. Even after all these years, I recognized him.
The only drawback was that Holy Rome had forgotten me.
Holy Rome went by a different name now'Ludwig.' His sky blue eyes, once childishly round, had sparkled with affection every time he looked at me. Now, they were a colder shade of blue, and looked at me with unfamiliarity. Holy Rome had used to blush a light shade of pink whenever he saw me, but that too had been lost.
Holy Rome's hair had darkened slightly, but it was still styled similarly the day that I had last seen him. I could still remember with precise accuracy the details of that day The words we had exchanged I've loved you since the 900s The brush that I had given him

Why else would he glower at me peevishly every time we make eye contact?
Why else would he only reply in grunts and unintelligible mumbles whenever I talk to him?
But sometimes, Berwald will show sporadic acts of kindness, and those capricious deeds will have me wishing with every fiber of my being that I could tell him, right then and there, that I love him.
I recall the night we ran away from Matthias together, and how he had covered me with his blanket until he was sure that I was warm.
I flashback to the day where he had arbitrarily called me his 'wife,' even though I'm sure that he had only been joking. I had blushed SOOOO badly
Then I remember looking up into his face after all of those special moments, and how he would always be cantankerously scowling down at my figure, which is tiny, compared to his towering height.
Yep, he hates me, doesn't he?
I sigh morosely. Berwald, if only you knew

Maybe that's what instigated my decision. The pictures. I don't know. To borrow an overused phrase, I don't know anything anymore.

This was Lovino Vargas's resolution as he grabbed his backpack, and walked out of his house to school.
Lovino was in love with that bastardo, that Antonio. He loved his beautiful, tan face, his twinkling green eyes, and his luscious chocolate hair. Hell, he loved everything about Antonio.
He could never fathom if Antonio liked him back or not. Sometimes, he and Antonio would stay up late into the night, talking about something or the other through the use of instant messaging. At other times, Antonio seemed to find Lovino negligible, a shadow in the dark.

It's just a god-awful holiday that happy people invented to make everybody else feel bad about themselves. It's just a day where all the lonely people get pounded down their throats that nobody in the world wants them. But don't think you're safe when you've actually got someone - now there's a whole crapload of expectations put on the both of you to make the day "romantic" and "special" and "perfect."

It's actually the other way around. When a man has a child, it brings out the boy in him that hasn't been there for a long time.
I see it in Antonio. Usually he's so composed, but around her, he's completely the opposite. Instead he makes mistakes to make her laugh, and says ridiculous things to make her smile. There's a playfulness in him that I never saw before she was born. Around her, he sort of glows. Not that he didn't before. It's just that now, it's so much more obvious and permanent.
So when I happen to see them in the kitchen, and catch Antonio dropping something just so that she'll giggle and chastise him, I can't help but smile a little. He's got a handful of cherry tomatoes that he can't seem to carry properly, and they keep slipping from his fingers into her lap.

"Hey kid! Pass the ball will ya~?" a nine-year-old albino child called.
Antonio Fernandez Carriedo, a new boy from Spain looked down at the ball at his feet. His curly chocolate hair was as messy as ever, as his emerald eyes sparkled. He bent down, holding the ball in his smaller hands. He looked over to the child who called. Smiling, he threw the ball.
"There you go~!" he sang.
The other child grinned back, but didn't pick the ball up at first. He looked down and slowly picked it up.
"Thanks " he paused, holding out his hand, "Wanna play?"
Antonio was a bit surprised at first, but nodded.
"Seguro! Lo que está tocando?" Antonio replied, not thinking about the fact that he was speaking in Spanish.
The albino child gave him the strangest look, "What?"
"Lo si- I'm sorry. I'd love to. What are you playing?" he corrected.
"We're going to play a game of dodge ball, are you in?" the albino asked, grin widening.

The shorter child, though only by a bit, had tears in his hazel eyes, and his teeth were gritted together tightly, as if he were trying to hide any bit of sadness that was oozing out of him. He was failing, miserably, however.
The taller child was somber, his violet eyes barely revealing any emotion. He was distraught, as he clenched the other boy's hand tighter, as if trying to tell him that it was okay, even though he knew it wasn't. He didn't bother trying to stop the tear that rolled down his cheek.
Their hearts stopped as the one man turned around, and motioned for the taller to come over, and that it was time to go. The smaller boy let out a choked sob, before letting his emotions break, and pulling the taller into a hug.

Ludwig walked along the cobble-stone road towards his home. He fumbled with the brown paper grocery bags he held in both hands. He was afraid that the contents would fall out and land on the floor. He silently cursed the shop he had come from for not having made the upgrade to plastic bags.
This would have been much easier if these bags had handles. Is Heracles that poor? He thought to himself. He immediately regretted the cruel thought ever passing his mind.
Heracles shop, Karpusi's Greece, had many customers, despite it being a very small shop. His shop always had fresh fruit and vegetables, with fine cuts of meat (and no one had reported getting food poisoning or mad cow disease from his shop yet) and welcoming cashiers. It was also affordable for big families (which was good for him considering that he only lived with his brother Gilbert).
Heracles had finally realized his dreams after Hetalia School, and Ludwig was happy for him.

The ticking of his clock next to the bed continued, on and on, until he had no idea how long he'd been lying there, exhausted yet unable to sleep. He did, however, hear the quiet click of the door opening and the soft pad of bare feet on the floor.
The mattress bent with a slight creaking of springs, the covers rustled, and a familiar source of warmth settled next to him. Italy, he thought, but kept his eyes closed, pretending to sleep, not wanting to have to deal with an overly excitable nation in his state.
For a few minutes, there was nothing but quiet breathing from beside him. Then the sheets rustled, and Germany felt something on his face -

MorningAs soon as he woke up, Germany could tell, judging by the warmth and feeling of the sheets beside him, that he was not alone in the bed. And he was pretty certain - one hundred percent certain, in fact - that the person lying next to him was named Feliciano Vargas, more commonly known as Italy Veneziano, and very probably had no clothes on at the moment.Morning in Romance More Like This
Germany let out an audible groan. If he was able to tell from the moment he awoke, and if he wasn't even the slightest bit surprised, that meant that he was getting used to it. And getting used to having a naked Italian in his bed every morning meant his life was getting very strange indeed.
He lay there for a moment, listening to the happy little snores coming from beside him. Germany had no idea how a snore could even sound happy, but if anyone could pull it off, it was Italy. Finally he sat up and risked a glance to his left, praying that the other nation at least had the covers pulled over him...
Well, that was a relief.

Oh, btw, in the anime it mentions he was picked up after maybe half an hour by some random passersby, but I decided to have it Germany just cause.
Italy was not in the best of situations right now. He was covered in scratches and bruises from excess contact at high speeds with a lot of unduly sharp tree branches, he was literally hanging by the seat of his pats from one of said tree branches, and the ground looked hard and unforgiving and very far off. All in all, he'd been in better places before.
"Germany... help..." Italy wished he could shout, but he was too bruised and tired, and the unfortunate position he was in meant that his lung capacity was rather severely diminished.

But another part of Germany's mind felt somehow... bereft, or something, missing the noise of Italy's breathing next to him, the warmth he provided, the way he would mumble in his sleep sometimes...
That was ridiculous. He was a military man, practical and straightforward, and yet here he was, missing the sensation of someone sleeping next to him? Someone responsible for ninety percent of his headaches, someone whom he'd yelled at every m

Ludwig sighed and rested his forehead against the bar. Across the room, Gilbert was still singing at the top of his lungs.

Japan ascended the stairs at a fast trot, located the bathroom door, and burst inside.
"Are you okay? What hap... pened..." Then his brain processed what was in front of him. Germany was stark naked, lying face down on top of Italy, who was not wearing pants and was saying, "I did it, Japan! I got closer to Germany!"
Well, if he'd known it was that kind of a relationship, he'd have knocked before entering, no doubt about it. He turned away. "Please put some clothes on."
He waited a moment, then turned back to the scene. Germany had a towel around his waist and, looking nonplussed, was putting one on Italy, who as usual seemed to have no idea that he was supposed to be wearing clothes.
"All right..." Japan sighed resignedly. "How long has this been going on for?"
Germany looked completely lost. "Um -"

"I'm sorry, I don't have a choice." Ludwig said as he bent down to grab the handle of his bag.
"You can't!" Feliciano pled, fresh tears blinding him.
He reached out for the German in front of him and grasped onto his uniform, entangling his fingers in the fabric. "You can't leave me! You can't!" he continued to cry
Ludwig tightened his grip on his bag. He let out a shaky breath. Why did it have to be so hard?
"I'm sorry, Italy." He said plainly, trying to keep himself calm.
Ludwig continued walking but Feliciano's grip tightened, making it slightly harder for him to continue as if nothing was happening.
"I-I promise! I'll get up extra early to train if that will make you happy! I'll try to be stronger if that's what you want me to be! I'll be anything you want me to be! Just don't go!"
Ludwig squeezed his eyes shut, trying to keep himself from getting teary eyed. He didn't realize how desperate the little Italian would be. He didn't say anyt

Germany - At That Moment - Hetalia Short StoryThe sun in the sky shone brightly and caressed the fluffy, marshmallow-like clouds as they traveled slowly along the skyline of the mountains. The day had just begun and the air was crisp but it was still refreshing. It was my favorite part of the day when for once everything was calm and quiet; it meant that I didn't have to hear anything about pasta.Germany - At That Moment - Hetalia Short Story in General Fiction More Like This
This was my only time to have "me time", but as I thought about it I wondered why exactly I wanted time to myself. In fact, before World War I, I didn't have anyone. Everyday was time to myself. I would have thought that I would rather spend time with someone now that I finally could. After all, that's what I always wanted when I was sitting in that empty house. But I always put that wish to sleep; thinking that "friends" would help me get farther in life was laughable.
I continued walking around, taking calm, deep breathes as I went along, trying my hardest to relax. The sun started warming the air up little by little. It was a nice fee
