"Come to France~" The man beckoned you.
"No, come to me. England." The other said.
I stared at both the men, not sure as to which one to pick. I looked at the long haired one known as 'France', sure he looked very nice but you had a bad feeling about him. Then I looked at the man with the bushy eyebrows, his smile was sincere and soft.
"Engwand." I said pointing to him, and then walking over to him. "What?! You chose him?!" The long haired man said, sounding quite upset. "I'm glad you chose me (Country name)." England said with a smile.
England picks me up and walks through a big field, leading up to a giant house, where he takes me inside and set me down. "This is your new home (country name), let me show you to the spare room." England said as he picked me up again. As he did so, I looked around in shock at all the pictures and old items on the walls and shelves. I was already starting to like the place.
England sets me down in a big room, it had a bed, closet, and a big window. Very plain but it was what I needed at the moment. "Sorry its not much (country name), but it will have to do for now..." England sighed. I jump onto the bed quickly and roll around on the comfy bed, "I love it!" I screamed with joy. England chuckled and watched as me rolled around.
I stopped rolling and then sat up, looking over to England, who looked happy at the moment. "Can you read me a story?" I asked, giving him a sweet smile. "Of course (country name). Oh and by any chance do you have a human name?" England said as he walked over to me, sitting down on the bed. "(First name) (last name)." I said with a grin. "Such a beautiful name for such a beautiful girl." England said as he ruffled your hair. "Thank you!" I said as I tackled him with a hug.
"Shall I tell a story now?" England said as he set you on his lap. "Yes! Make it a true story! No lying!" I said with a giggle, "Okay okay, once upon a time..." England began to say.
"There was a war between two brothers, who had recently been together for awhile. Until one day the younger brother had wanted to leave and be free. The oldest brother was sad by his younger brothers actions. Every year on that one day, the same day and month the younger brother gained freedom, brought tears to the older brothers eyes. The day had reminded him of the fight he had with his brother, begging him to stay. But sadly the younger brother did not, but later on they became good friends. Who had..." I started to drift to sleep, even though the story was just getting good. I yawned and then fell asleep in England's lap.
(country name) had fallen asleep in my lap as I told the story. Slowly I took her out of my lap and set her under her bed covers, kissing her on the forehead. "Goodnight." I said as I kissed her. I walked out of her room and went into my own room to sleep as well.
The bedroom door creaked open, "Engwand? Are you asleep?" You heard a small scared voice say. "(Name)? Whats wrong?" I said as I turned on my lamp, the light had shown that she was crying. "I'm scared of the dark..." She whimpered, wiping her face with her arm. "Do you want to sleep in here?" I asked holding out my arms, "Yeah..." She held out her arms too. I picked her up and put her next to me, put the blanket over her. She looked at me with her shiny (e/c) eyes, she looked scared and sad at the same time.
I kissed her on the head and pet her head, "I'm going to turn off the lamp now okay." I reached over and switched it off. Instantly she snuggled into my chest, I could feel her shaking slightly. "Hey there's nothing to be afraid of, I'm right here, and so are the faeries." I said looking at the faeries that suddenly appeared.
"Faeries? Where?" (Name) said as she looked up, "Wow! There are faeries!" She said with amazement. "What is your name?" (Name asked), "Mabel." The green faerie replied. "And yours?" "Rosie." The blue one said with a smile.
"Don't be afraid of the dark, there is nothing but us faeries. We will protect you from anything mean and scary okay?" Mabel said with a smile. "Really? Thank you." (Name) said with a relieved sigh. "Well we must be going, we have a little girl to protect." Rosy said taking Mabel's hand. Suddenly the two faeries disappeared into the darkness.
I looked down at (Name), I could see her smile in the darkness. "Are you scared anymore?" I asked quietly, "No not really, I have you here with me. So I don't feel scared that much." She snuggled into me once again. I closed my eyes and felt her breath slow down, which meant she was falling asleep. "Goodnight (Name)..." I said, drifting to sleep as well.
-3 years later-
(Name) has grown a lot in 3 years, she has the body of a 18 year old and has an amazing personality. I'm proud of her and...in-love with her. I am not sure why I love her, its probably because of her wonderful personality and her beauty. I am now able to take her to world conferences because she is old enough, she told me about all of the new countries she met and how she is great friends with America. I just hope he doesn't influence her to do something stupid...
"Hey England, do you want me to make you some tea?" I heard (Country name)'s voice, snapping me out of my thoughts. "Oh um yes please." I said looking to her, giving her a smile. "Okay." She said, skipping off into the kitchen. "Later I'll be hanging out with America if that's okay!" I hear her call from the kitchen, "Yes love that's fine." I said with a small chuckle.
After about 5 minutes she brings out 2 cups of tea, one for me and her. "Here you go Arthur." She said handing me the cup, "Earl Gray, I know its your favorite." She said taking a seat next to me. "Thank you love." I said sipping at the hot tea. Quickly she drank all of her tea and was soon out the door, heading over to America's place. I just really hoped he didn't give her any ideas...
About 2 hours later she had returned, a weird expression on her face. "Is everything alright love?" I asked as I watched her take a seat. She looked down at her lap, and played with her thumbs. Something was obviously wrong.
"I want freedom." She sighed.
I became wide eyed, remembering when America asked the same thing. I put my head into my hands, sighing with frustration. "You don't want me to have freedom do you Arthur?" She said with a sad tone. America must have told her about the revolutionary war or something, this was probably not going to end well.
"No, I don't..." I said looking up at her, tears welling up in my eyes.
She stood up and looked at me with a serious face, "Well I want freedom and independence...whether you like it or not..." She then stormed out the door. Leaving me there...alone.
-1 month later-
I stood in the rain, looking at England who was almost 20 feet away from me. I held a gun in my arms, and my army standing behind me. I was wearing a uniform with my countries flag colors on it. America standing by my side, looking out towards Britain.
"Give me freedom England! I want independence!" I screamed at him. Pointing my gun in his direction. He stiffened up and then took a step forward, "No! Never!" He screamed back. "Give her freedom Britain! She deserves it!" America shouted, clenching his fist. "Shut up you idiot!" England screamed.
England then charged at me, pointing his gun directly at me. Before I could react, I heard a loud bang. And then a piercing pain in my chest, I had been shot. I clenched the wound and fell to the ground, only to be caught by America.
"(Country name)! Prepare to shoot!" A soldier ordered.
You lay in America'a arms, looking over to England. A shocked expression on his face, he dropped his gun and fell to his knees. "Damn it...Damn it all..." I heard him mutter. I then felt the darkness around me, sucking me into its blackness.
I looked over to (Country name) and saw that she had become unconscious. This is all my fault, I should have just given her freedom, I thought to myself. "What happened to you Britain? This is just like what happened when I wanted freedom...all she wanted to be was a bigger country." America said, giving me a glare.
"Aim your weapons!" A solder screamed.
I quickly got up and ran in the opposite direction, running away from the soldiers and (Name). I looked back only once to see America carrying her away, along with the soldiers following closely behind him.
"I promise that I will give you freedom..." I said to myself, collapsing on the ground from exhaustion.
-2 years later-
I can still remember the pain of the wound England had given me. How it felt to lose so much blood that you faint. Feeling the pain of fighting with someone you love. I wanted to talk to England very badly, I wanted to see his face once more. But that was probably impossible now, seeing that he didn't want to come in contact with me. I had become free and independent but I still wanted to thank him for that.
Getting as much courage as I could build up, I went over to England's house and knocked on his door. After waiting a couple minutes he opens the door, looking quite shocked to see me. "H-hello..." I said shyly, "What do you want?" He said in a sad tone. "I need to speak with you." I said with a worried look. "Fine, come in..." He said letting me through.
I took a seat on the couch, with him taking a seat on the other side of the couch. "I wanted to thank you...for giving me freedom and independence. I know that you probably hate me and stuff, but please hear me out. I am happy you gave me what I wanted..." I said with a quiet sigh. "I don't hate you." He said glumly, "It's good that you have become independent, you have become a bigger country due to it." He said still sounding sad.
When I looked over to him I had seen a tear fall onto his lap, and then seeing many more fall as well. "Don't cry England, why are you crying?" I said moving over to his side of the couch. "B-because I'm proud of y-you..." He said covering his eyes. Instantly I hugged him, trying to make him feel better.
"I love you..." I heard him whisper.
"You do?" I asked, with astonishment.
"I always have." He sniffed.
I felt my heart skip a beat, he had returned my feelings. I hug him tighter and then looked up at him. Only to be kissed by him, his lips tasting like Earl Gray. Gladly I accepted the kiss, and kissed him back passionately. You both soon pulled away, needing air in your lungs.
You hugged him once again, "I love you England, I promise to never leave your side again okay."
He put his arms around you, "I love you too (Country name), and thank you." I could feel him smiling.
You and England had both gotten married, and basically never left each others side. For the rest of your lives you would spend them with each other and with your friends. You undying love for each other kept you two together.
