You sat listening to the Axis leader, Germany, fuss about the usual: how you and your twin brother, north Italy, needed to do better. Unlike your twin though, you wouldn't just sit and listen to Germany fuss for much longer.
"Vhy are you tvo so useless in ze var effort?" Germany yelled frustrated.
"Doitsu! I-a made some war preparations!" Feli (Italy) said excited.
"Var preparations? Vhy didn't you say zat before?" Germany asked seeming shocked. "Vell go get zem zen."
"Ok!" Feli said before he took off running into the house.
You were curious to see what your Fratello (brother) had done, and hoped it would please Germany. You didn't want to admit it, but you were falling hard for the tall German man, but there was one thing he did that completely made you forget how bad you loved him; mess with your brother and upset him. As bad as you tried not to, if he made Feli cry, you usually ended up yelling at Germany then you'd feel bad and go crawling back, which in your mind made him consider you weak and useless.
"Here Doitsu, what-a do you think?" Feli asked running back outside and snapping you out of ___________ world, and you noticed he was carrying a picnic basket.
"Vhat is zat?" Germany asked trying to stop from jumping to the conclusion that your brother was an idiot.
"Let's-a see, there's pasta, pasta fruit, pasta sauce, pasta, pasta, oh and pa-" Feli said excited before Germany cut him off and started yelling.
"ZIS ISN'T VAR PREPOSITIONS YOU IDIOT! VHY ARE YOU SO USELESS AND UNNEEDED IN ZE VAR EFFORT?!" Germany yelled.
"I-Im useless?" Feli asked looking heart broken.
"YES! Some times I zink zat America vould be a better allie!" Germany yelled. "Vhy oh Vhy did I get stuck being your babysitter?"
That did it, not only had Germany just insulted you, he made your brother run inside crying. Feli had always been picked on while you were growing up, and you weren't going to take it any longer.
"WHY ARE YOU-A SO MEAN TO MY FRATELLO?! HE-A LOVES YOU, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHY! YOU'RE-A CRUEL, UNGRATEFUL, UNCARING EXCUSE OF A COUNTRY!" You yelled without even considering the consequences of your words.
"Vell I'm sorry you feel zat vay. Vhy don't I just leave Zen?" Germany asked looking hurt but trying to mask his pain.
"That's the best idea You-a have ever had." You snapped. "We-a won't miss you."
"Y- you von't miss me?" He stammered.
"No idiota! I wish we-a had never met you!" You yelled wanting to get the last word in.
You watched as his face turned hard and you swore you saw tears forming, but he stormed off into the house before you could tell for sure. You stood outside for a few minutes just replying what you had just said over and over in your head feeling worse every time you thought about the looks he had made. But you couldn't apologize or he would call you weak for sure, you thought as you walked inside to find Feli begging Germany not to go.
"No, ______________, is right. Ve need a break from each other." Germany said.
"But-" Feli said before you cut him off.
"Just-a let him go Feli. He'll be-a back." You said your voice hard since you were trying to prevent yourself from crying.
Germany said nothing as he simply walked by you and down the street disappearing slowly from your sight. As you watched him disappear you felt your heart breaking, missing him already, but you refused to cry. You had to be strong for Feli and you had to convince both yourself and your brother that he would be back.... he had to come back right?
***One week later***
It had been one week since Germany had left. Everyday had been harder since he left, but you managed to keep your emotions in check when you were around Feli. The problem now was that Feli had gone with Japan for the day leaving you all alone to think and remember all the mean, hateful things you had said to Germany. You felt tears start to form in your eyes and finally you let them fall. No one was around to witness you being weak, but what did that matter anymore? You would do anything to have that moment back, do you could run to Germany and apologize for letting your anger get the best of you.
As you sat crying on your need you heard someone pull into the yard and your heart skipped a few beats.
'Oh please be Germany,' You thought to yourself as you ran outside, not even caring that you looked like a mess right now, but much to your disappointment it was just the mail. You groaned in frustration as you ran inside throwing the mail on the table. You didn't even care that it was early, it had gotten your- you stopped mid-thought when a letter caught your eyes: it was from Germany!
You tore open the letter hoping to find that he was coming home and that he was ok, but what you would read would shock you.
I've been doing a lot of thinking since our fight and I've come to the realization that you were right. I am a useless, ungrateful, undeserving country. That's why I decided I'm not coming back. I'm going to eliminate your problem: me. By the time you get this it will be too late. Just call the police and tell them they can find a dead, useless country at his brothers house. (And no east isn't home so he wouldn't stumble upon me.) Tell Italy I'll miss him and I'm so sorry for being such a jerk to him.
P.S. Ich liebe dich ________________. "
You stood shock consuming you. Germany was going to..... because of you?! You had to stop him, no matter the cost. Without thinking you took off towards Prussia' s house happy he didn't leave to far away. You didn't think, you just ran, knowing you had to stop Germany from doing anything rash.
After what seemed like forever, you made it to Prussia's house and you yanked the door open not caring what anyone thought of you right now.
"GERMANY DON-" you yelled before a bang from upstairs cut you off making you scream and take off to where the noise came from.
What you found shocked you, Germany was lying on a bed, a giant pool of his blood starting to form around him. You ran to him, trying to figure out where all the blood was coming from before you spotted the gun on the floor and the home in Germany's chest. You screamed out of fear and tried to put pressure on his wound, knowing you had to save him.
"Germany! Please! Please! Wake up!" You sobbed.
"____-________? Vhat are you doing here? I zought I told you not to come," Germany whispered weakly.
"I don't-a care what you said, i-i had to stop you," you sobbed. "Don't You-a die on me," you said dialing Japan's number.
"Herro?" Japan answered.
"Japan! Please hurry! G-Germany is hurt. W-we need you....we are at Prussia's house." You said panicking.
"I'm on my way, keep pressure against the wound," Japan said hanging up the phone.
"I'm so sorry," you cried looking into Germany's blue eyes. "I-i shouldn't have-a said what I did.... please, please don't go. I need you."
"Y- you need me?" The German asked weakly and you nodded still sobbing.
There wasn't anything you could do besides keep pressure on his wound and hope he would be ok. 'Japan, please hurry!' You thought trying to calm down and keep Germany awake. You just prayed you were doing this right and that Germany would make it... he had to. 'He just couldn't leave you alone!' Your voice screamed inside your head. 'I just can't lose him.'
