(Name) walked down the hall with her purse in one hand as she dug through it with her other hand, “Dammit.” She cursed, she’d left her phone at home, and knowing her luck the day that she leaves home without it would be the day that EVERYONE needed to contact her.
She turned right around and hurried back to her apartment. She entered her apartment right when her phone started to ring. She slammed her door shut and hurried over and picked up her phone.
“Hello?” she asked breathing hard.
“Hallo frau, you okay?” the accented voice of her favorite Prussian rang through her ears.
“Yeah, I’m fine Gil…just left my phone at home and had to run back to get it…you’re lucky I answered at all.” She said sarcastically.
“It vas my awesomeness zhat made you get zhere so fast…you knew it vas me.” He said that over-confidence taking hold of him again.
(Name) laughed, this guy was insane sometimes, but she loved him…but he didn’t know…she hoped…she didn’t want to inflate his ego anymore. She shook her head as she answered him.
“So why is it you are calling me?” she asked him.
“Vell, I figured I should call before I graced you vith my presence.” He said.
(Name) laughed but then suddenly stopped, “Wait…what?” she asked in shock, “Where are you?!”
“Right here frau.” He said from behind the couch she was sitting on.
(Name) jumped and turned around cursing loudly, “GIL! DON’T DO THAT!” She shrieked and hung up her cell phone, “Wait…how’d you get in here?” she asked.
“You gave me a key, remember…from vhen you vent out of town, so I could feed your cat (Male Cat Name).” he said simply, “You never asked for it back, so I figured it vas okay for me to keep it.”
“That was three months ago!” she exclaimed.
“I figured zhat I may need it one day so I kept it, vere you really planning on spending today alone?” he asked, “You posted on face-book zhat you wanted to be alone on your birthday, are you serious.”
“Kinda.” She said sheepishly, “I just didn’t want a party…and if I didn’t say anything…then Al would throw a huge bash…and I can’t stand that.”
“I know, vhich is vhy I took responsibility as party planner zhis year and gave everyone the wrong time and place und set a party up zhere so zhey vouldn’t bug you.” He explained.
“Wow…really?” she asked in shock.
“Ja really…I know how much you can’t stand his parties, only vest knows because I had him bake you a cake.” He said.
“Really?!” she asked again, shocked at how sweet he was being.
“Ja really. So now…you can be alone and not worry about anyone. Auf Wiedersehen” he said and went to leave.
As he reached the door she was slightly sad and called out softly, “Wait!”
He turned and looked at her surprised, “Was?” he asked.
“Would…would you like to stay and have a slice of cake with me?” she asked trying to fight the blush on her cheeks.
She didn’t really want to be alone today…she just didn’t want a big party. Having the person she cared about (secretly) the most spend part of the day alone with her would be wonderful.
He grinned, “Ja, zhat sounds gutt to me.” He said and she smiled.
----------- -------------- --------------
Prussia and (Name) each had two slices of cake and a glass of milk and talked and laughed together. Having him there with her was surprisingly relaxing. The usually over the top Prussian was relatively calm and rather funny in private. She smiled as she took her final bite and tried not to choke as Prussia told her of yet another one of his escapades with his two best friends, France and Spain, otherwise known as the Bad Touch Trio.
“Und zhis frau’s ex-boyfriend walked over und started to hassle Toni who was his usual care-free self, it vas so funny to see Toni run circles around zhe dummkopf without having to break zhe grin on his face. Und Toni vas vasted at zhis point und he vas still smarter zhan zhe sober ex.” Prussia said with a laugh.
“Oh my god!” she laughed loudly, “Are you kidding me?!”
“Nein, vould I lie?” Prussia asked.
“Ja.” She said simply.
The duo fell back into rolls of laughter.
As the laughter died down Prussia looked at her and said in a soft sensual voice, “You know, you sound really cute vhen you speak Deutsch.” He said leaning in.
(Name’s) face flushed softly and she stammered out, “D…d…danke…”
He smiled softly and leaned in just a little bit more to where they could kiss if they wanted to. And boy did (Name) want to.
He opened his mouth to speak, “You know…I should probably get going.” He said and moved away from her and got up to leave.
But before he could leave (Name) reached out and caught his wrist, “You could stay if you wanted to…” she said softly.
“Vhy?” he asked a curiously mischievous tone to his voice, “Vhat could ve do?”
“You wanna watch a movie?” she asked a very hopeful tone to her voice.
“Hmm…” he said as though he were thinking it over, “Ja, okay. Sounds gutt to mich.”
“Awesome.” She said with a smile.
“I know.” He said and she finally let go of his wrist as he sat down next to her once more.
“So vhat do you vant to vatch?” he asked.
“Hmm…how about Spaceballs…it’s really funny. “ she said laughing softly.
“Sounds awesome to me.” He said with his signature grin.
“Cool.” She said and went to get the movie.
Prussia watched her walk to the DVD player and smirked softly. He knew this was
gonna happen. She didn’t want him to leave. He could tell. (Name) popped the DVD in the player and hurried back over to the couch and plopped down beside Prussia. She looked at the albino who had captured her heart so long ago and smiled.
“Oh, I almost forgot, do you want something to drink?” she asked politely.
“Ja, that’d be awesome.” He said with a grin, “Just vater vould be good, if you don’t have beer.”
“I think it’s a little too early for beer, so I’ll get you some water…unless you want some lemonade.” She suggested.
“Lemonade.” He said.
(Name) nodded and got up to get their drinks and when she returned she handed him his glass and sat down and hit play. And as the movie progressed the pair unconsciously got closer on the couch. They were practically cuddling.
--------- ----------- -------
After the movie ended the Prussian once more got up to leave, but once again he was stopped by (Name) who still truly desired his company. He chuckled and sat back down and visited with her for a while.
“I meant to ask, where on earth is Gilbird?” (Name) asked him.
“He’s in taking a nap with (Male Cat’s Name).” he said simply.
“I always thought it was so funny how well they get along. I mean cats are known for hunting birds.” She said.
“I know, but I don’t zhink zhat your Katze would hurt Gilbird…I don’t zhink he have it in him.” He teased.
“Nein…he is such a softie.” The (Nationality) girl agreed.
The duo laughed and then decided to watch another movie. This one was of Gilbert’s choosing. Evil Dead 2. It freaked (Name) out a little bit in certain parts but it also made her laugh, but she did end up gripping onto the red eyed man’s arm.
Sometime in the middle of the movie Gilbird and (Male Cat Name) came in and (Male Cat Name) curled up at (Name’s) feet and Gilbird nested into (Name’s) hair rather than Prussia’s surprising both of them, but that made them both laugh.
-------- ------- ------
As the evening closed in on them Prussia made to leave once more but he was stopped. Not by the soft grip of her delicate hand or her calling out to him it was the sad, resigned sigh of the one person he cared about most. He turned around and saw her looking at the floor.
“I’m sorry…I took up all of your day…I didn’t mean to…I didn’t really want to be alone…I just didn’t want anyone to make a big deal of me just turning another year older.” She said and looked up at him remorsefully, “I guess I ruined all of your plans for the day huh?”
The Prussian made his way back over to her and sat down, “Actually nein, I spent my day just as I planned to. I knew zhat you’d vant company…so I canceled any ozher plans I have to spend my day vith you.”
“Why on earth would you do that for me?” (Name) asked incredulously.
He looked at her seriously and with an encouraging tweet from Gilbird leaned in and kissed her deeply. (Name) was shocked but she kissed back happily wrapping her arms around his neck as he wrapped his around her waist. They sat there and kissed for what felt like hours, even days, but the kiss was simple, but full of pure love and passion. When they broke apart for air they just looked at one another. Their passion for each other was obvious.
“Ich liebe dich (Name).” Prussia said simply, but lovingly.
“Ich liebe dich auch Gilbert.” (Name) told him with a slight blush on her face smiling face.
“I know.” The albino said in a cocky voice.
“Oh shut up and kiss me again!” she said and pulled him in by his shirt pressing their lips together again.
Gilbird flew over and landed on (Male Cat Name’s) head and looked down to where they were looking at one another and tweeted as if to say, ‘humans mating rituals are so weird’.
