"Okay! Dudes and Dudette's who wants to go first!" Alfred screamed for the umpteenth time that hour. His loud character was getting pretty annoying pretty fast. "Ve, Ve!!" Italy waved his hand wildly for the country to see. "Sure Italy! Truth or DARE?" America asked the small country. "Truth! Ve~ I want-a Truth!" Italy bounced excitedly. America sighed " Alright man choose the boring one..." America shook his smartphone for the randomized truth question to pop up. You waited anxiously knowing Italy would answer truthfully to anything Alfred asked him. The question popped up and Alfred read it aloud. " So Dude! Your truth is... 'Who do you love most?'" Alfred giggled quietly. You glanced over to Romano who had tensed looking from Italy to you. His glare hardened when your eyes met.
Of course he looked away but you felt your heart clench. His looks were always so cold and lonely. You sighed and brought your attention back to Feli.
He called out the name I knew he was going to call out so it was no surprise to me, while some of the other countries giggled. Most just stared in bewilderment. The man in question; Germany, was bright red. Italy went over to sit next to him but before he stopped and also said happily "Oh and Pasta~" before sitting down.
The game went on there were lots of 'ooooohh's~ and aaaaahhhhhhhh's~' and blushing but we were nearing the end of the game. Most party goers went back to the dance floor or to get drinks and those who didn't continued the game. There were about 60 of us playing before, most I didn't even know. Being a human well more like potential representative country. Some countries didn't associate with me. I only know about 50 out of the 195 countries. So now it was just Alfred, Arthur, Francis, Germany, Italy, Romano, Spain, Japan and I.
"______, Do you want to do a few more?" Alfred asked. " I don't care, but I'm not joining the crazy fest over there I'll get mauled." Francis giggled " Mon Cher you do look particularly ravishing tonight" Almost barfing I scooted away from my seat next to the perv. Romano was giving him a death glare mumbling under his breath. Germany excused himself to the bathroom leaving poor Italy, so scared of learning French, to hide under the table after his exit. Now it was time for one last spin and it landed on me, joy. I picked Dare of course and Alfred shook the phone once more.
You face dropped looking from left to right. On your right was Romano, your left an ever so pervy France. You being the one to never back down from a dare sighed. "For how long?" You asked Alfred "You have to kiss the person on your left for 10 seconds, _____" Romano looked angry you turned to him and gave him a half smile before turning back to the nightmare. "Ohnohnohn mon cher are you ready?" You sighed again " Let's get this over wi-mhmph" France pressed his slimy lips to yours. There it was your first kiss ruined. After 10 seconds you pushed him away, wiping your mouth. "Ewww~" you whined and turned to looked for Romano but he was gone. America pointed to the door and you understood immediately.
You ran down the street, 'where did he go?' Kept running through your mind. Tears started forming in your eyes. 'I shouldn't have pushed him! I should have just swallowed my pride and pass the dare!' You ran blindly to the one place that always helped you think, the beach. It was about 5:45 in the morning now as you reached the sand. You could barely make out a figure sitting close to the water. You ran towards it hoping the darkened shape to be Romano. The sun was rising so you could make out that one stubborn curl that just won't go down. You laughed at a memory of Romano and you. He wouldn't let you touch his curl, later to find out what it did.
Now you were almost caught up to him. You could hear him sigh as the first rays of light shown through the clouds. He stood up readying himself to leave when you crashed into him. "Romano!" You hugged around his waist "______?!" He yelped surprised. "Please don't be mad! I'm so sorry, it was just a dare! IONLYLOVEYOU!!!" Romano looked down at you and arched his eyebrow "Mi scusi?" You sighed and looked up at his face, you noticed he had been crying just like you... "I love you, only yo-" for the second time that night you had been cut off by a mans lips, but this time it was soft, heavenly not slimy and gross. Your lips started to move in sync with his own as the sun rose higher into the morning sky. The need to breath came too fast and he rested his forehead against yours, taking your hands in his he looked into your (e/c) eyes "Ti Amo,_____" he said so quietly. Then came the smile. That one dazzling smile played on his lips. You were responsible for that smile, and vowed you would be for many more years. "Ti Amo troppo, Romano"
16 YEARS LATER
"Wow Mom" ______ (your 15 year old daughter) said. "So that's how you and Dad got together" you smiled, she was so much like her father just didn't have the attitude. "Mmhmm" you hummed stirring the tomato sauce for the spaghetti. ______ (y/d) Kept hounding you with questions about Romano and you. "I hope my boyfriend and I will be like dad and you, Mom" _____(y/d) said. You looked up at her with a mischievous glare. "And when were you going to tell me you had a boyfriend?" You said. "Umm" she said "It must have slipped my mind! Hehe I was going to tell you guys at one of the world meetings so there would be witnesses..." You thought for a moment "So he's one of the countries sons, otherwise they wouldn't know about us." you stated matter-of-factly. She smiled at the thought "yeah he is..." _____(y/d) said. "Honey" you said "What country's son is your boyfriend?" _____ looked up nervously, "Prussia's son, Benedict." You turned shocked at your daughter, then started to laugh "Now there's a cute couple, have fun telling your father about this one, Hon." still laughing you heard the front for open and _____(y/d) squeaked and ran to her room. You laughed and turned back to your meal in progress. Your hand floated to your enlarged stomach you wondered what you would call your baby boy when he came to the world. You heard Romano coming into the kitchen "Ciao amore." He hugged you from behind. You turned to kiss him, only to see that dazzling smile you fell in love with so many years ago.
