A/N: Hello everyone! How are you all? I'm tired, but at least it's Spring Break! Why is no one else reviewing? I don't know, and it's making me sad D:

From now on, for me to update, I will need at least two reviews per chapter.

Enough with the Author's Note, time for the story!

A Thousand Years

Chapter Three

Year: 2021

Bella's POV

Prussia and I were sitting in the tub, him behind me. Bubbles were everywhere, and I was giggling like a five year old. I kept picking up the bubbles and throwing them into the air. Gilbert was trying to get me into "the mood", but I was having too much fun.

"Beeeeellllllllaaaaa~~" My husband whined.

I ignored him, looking around for the shampoo bottle.

"BEEELLLAAAAA" He whined again. "BEEEEELLLLLLLLAAA"

"WHAT?" I growled, shaking the bottle to get the shampoo out of the bottle, while looking behind me to see a crooked smile on Gilbert's face. I blushed a bright red. I knew that look. It was the "I want to make love to you until you can't walk" look. His red eyes were glinting and I couldn't help but shiver. "Gil..."

"Pleeaassee?" Gilbert leaned his face closer to mine, sweltering red eyes clouded with hunger. "This is our wedding anniversary." By now, his lips were brushing mine and I had unconsciously turned my body around to face him. Crap…I can't believe him. I just wanted to take a bath but nooooo. I sighed and nodded slightly. His signature smirk reappeared and he connected our lips with so much love and passion and want I couldn't help but whimper into the kiss, making a growl form in his throat.

Prussia's POV

My eyes widened and I couldn't help but let a small gasp escape my lips. How did she…then…but I… I suppose my mouth was hanging open because Lucia- I mean- Carina, rolled her chocolate brown eyes and motioned with her hand for me to step in.

"C'mon Prussia, I'm not getting any younger. And yes, I know you've been there the whole time. Yes, I am a woman. And no, I really don't care that you saw me naked. All will be explained if you get your culo pigro [1] in this tent so I may speak to you."

I glared slightly at her. How dare she, a woman, speak to the awesome me like that? The awesome me does not take orders from anyone, let alone a woman! I was about to voice that when Toni looked at me and shook his head, signaling for me to not even try. I got up from my hiding spot- which I guess wasn't really a hiding spot to begin with- and walked over to her, finally realizing how short she was. Of course she couldn't be a man! She looked about 5' 3"! I felt like such an idiot for not grasping it sooner. The awesome me was fooled! The awesome Prussia does not, get bamboozled!

"How did you know that I was there? I'm too awesome to be spotted while spying!" I questioned her, a glint of defiance in my eyes. Ever since this man-turned-woman showed up, I'd stopped acting like my normal totally awesome self. I don't know what kind of unawesome sorcery she was using, but like I said; it was totally unawesome.

"I could feel your eyes on me. I have been trained to know when someone is looking at me when my back is turned, you know that right?" Carina asked. I wasn't even going to ask if that was her real name, I'm sure she was going to explain everything.

"Explain all of this," I gestured with my arms to show her and the tent and everything, not taking my eyes off hers while doing so. "Then little missy," Carina sighed, her shoulders loosening and eyes shutting for a moment as she sat on a cushion on the floor. She patted the spot in front of her as Spain sat himself next to her, uncharacteristically quiet. My fire red eyes narrowed but I sat myself down and silently waited for her to speak.

Carina was still for a moment, not speaking and keeping her eyes on the folded hands in her lap. When she finally looked up at me, her brown eyes were serious.

"My real name, as you've probably guessed by now is Carina Medici. Luciano is my younger brother. I am the general here because staying at home is boring," She started off, still looking me in the eye.

"That is still no-" I tried to interrupt, but she beat me to it.

"I'm getting to that. You see, my family is very wealthy and powerful in Italy. When Spain came to my family's estate months ago asking my father to join him for this battle, I couldn't help but be interested. My father is very strong and wise, but I don't think he could lead a cavalry at his age. He should stay home and be with Mamma e il mio fratellino [2]. Luciano is too young to lead it himself, and I don't want any of them to get hurt. So I thought to myself, why can't I lead instead? I had already secretly trained myself to be a soldier because I thought studying my books and art was boring. When I approached Antonio about my idea, at first he downright declined my request. But after pestering and prodding him, I eventually got him to agree with plan "become general and save Dad and Luciano from death." I love my family you see, and Calabria can get pretty noioso [3]. After Antonio training me secretly while Dad thought he was going to be general, I escaped home and grabbed the cavalry and galloped with Spain here. I know it doesn't make much sense, but it's the only way I can keep my family safe," Carina was gasping for breath after her story, running her hands through her feathery hair. The story, like she said, didn't make much sense to me, but I guess it's just one of those things that only make sense in one person's mind.

The tent was quiet for a minute or two until Toni decided to break the ice.

"Well amigo [4], she is a very good fighter and general! Yo sé que [5] you think because she's a chica [6] that she can't, but she is! She is muy bueno [7] with a bow and arrow! Just you wait and see amigo! You'll definitely be impressed!"

After that I kind of tuned out, ignoring his Spanish driveling. I nodded to Carina goodnight and dragged my feet all the way to my tent, about ten or so tents away from her's. all I could think of, after I changed into my nightclothes and stared at the area above my bed was, why do I have this…fluttering in my chest? Why do I not feel good about putting her on the frontline?
