Okay, so this is the last part of Kyuketsuki. I promised you a happy ending so I hope that this is happy enough.
And yes, in the last chapter I had a small reference to the Beatles' Elenor Rigby. I love that song. I actually have music lyrics in this one because I was listening to a certain song and I kept thinking how well it fit with my "Romeo and Juliet" theme. It's called (surprise, surprise) "Romeo and Juliet" by Dire Straits.
I hope you all love this ending and thank you all so much for sticking with the story and reading it.
A lovely creature was sitting in a plain field of white, the blankness going on for miles. He was playing a guitar and singing a tune, his eyes closed and a small smile on his face.
"A love-struck Romeo sings the streets a serenade. Laying everybody low with a love song that he made…"
The man's golden hair shone as he moved his head as he sang, the locks glinting with each move. He opened his eyes slightly as his fingers picked at the steel strings, his emerald eyes shining.
Is… that who I think it is…?
"Juliet… the dice was loaded from the start and I bet. And you exploded in my heart. And I forget, I forget… the movie song. When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong? Juliet…"
He looked up, his white clothes blending into the background slightly, and smiled.
It's been so long, hasn't it?
He smiled and kept on playing, singing once more.
"Juliet, when we made love you used to cry. I said, 'I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die.' And there's a place for us. You know, the movie song. When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong? Juliet…"
He stopped playing, looking up at the man standing in front of him. He smiled and placed the guitar aside.
"You know me…" the other smiled, his blue eyes shining. "I always like to make an entrance…"
The green-eyed man embraced the other, holding him close. "Am I your Juliet?"
"As long as I'm your Romeo…" the other muttered, kissing his lover's lips.
I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you
I can't do anything except be in love with you
And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
And all I do is keep the beat, the bad company
And I all I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet, I'd do the stars with you…
"I missed you…" the first whispered, clinging to the other's chest. "I thought I'd be waiting here forever…"
"Me too…" the other smiled, kissing his lover's forehead. "I love you, Arthur…"
When we made love you used to cry
I said, 'I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die'
And there's a place for us
You know, the movie song
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?
"I love you too, Alfred…" Arthur whispered.
Alfred smiled, his smile brighter than the white walls around him. He took Arthur's hand and started to lead him in another direction, his eyes excited.
"I guess we're ready then," he murmured, kissing Arthur's knuckles.
"I was waiting just for you," the ex-vampire smiled, tightening his grip on Alfred's hand. "They'll let me in?"
"For sure they will," Alfred smiled, pulling on his white sleeve. "If they know you as well as I do, they'll let you in."
Arthur smiled, his face slightly flushed. "I want this… I want to spend eternity with you…"
"I know…" Alfred smiled, kissing Arthur softly. "I love you… Juliet…"
There was a white flash and they were gone, the walls of Purgatory behind them. They had passed on and so had their love.
A love-struck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
He finds a convenient street light
Steps out of the shade
And says something like,
"You and me, babe… How about it?"
Happy? Yes? No? Maybe? I think it's happy enough... .
Anyways, thank you all once again for reading this. It's the first Hetalia fic I have finished and I'm very proud of it. I'm also proud of the reviews and praise I have gotten.
I also want to take this time to say that I have written a short blurb set in this AU fic and I will be posting it sometime soon. I am also working on a prequel, dealing with Arthur's past before arriving to the mansion. I want to know if you, my Prussia-awesome readers, would like to read something along those lines.
Once again, thank you very much and I look forward to your reviews.
Love you all!
