Chapter 4: Super Italy Bros Forever Part 1
Romano watched his little brother run away crying. He stood there alone, looking at his broken Wii. "I have to stop this. It's making Veniciano sad. I've never seen him this upset before…" Romano picked up the fragments of black plastic, putting them in a bag and throwing them out. The game disk was surprisingly still in tact. So he put it in it's box and hid it away in the bookshelf.
He went to his room, getting out his laptop and looking for videogame addiction support groups. Meanwhile Veniciano went back to the kitchen, noticing something he'd over looked.
"I'm doing this for my brother… I have to quit playing so much that way he could smile again." Romano thought, grabbing his coat and walking out the door.
"Wait Romano, where are you going?" Veniciano fallowed. "Look, I'm sorry I broke your Wii, I didn't mean to!"
"It's allright. I'm just going out for a while." Romano said, looking at his little brother. "I'll be fine and I'm going to come back." He hugged his younger brother.
"No wait a minute. I realized something Romano." Veniciano said. "It's not your fault, but I-"
"I'm sorry, I have to go. I'm going to be late." Romano left, caressing his brother on both cheeks as he left.
7 hours later…
"ITALIA, I'M BACK!" Romano shouted, coming back from a long meeting (that and a few drinks at the bar made him get lost when coming home).
"Romano, what took you so long, where the hell were you?" Veniciano asked, confronting his brother. "I had something really important I needed to tell you!"
"What's the matter?"
"Well… You didn't start the fire…"
"Huh?" Romano hiccupped, hoping his brother wouldn't smell the wine in his breath.
"The blow torch went haywire for some reason… It fell onto the floor… That's what caused it… It wasn't your fault!"
"Oh I see… Well I guess we have to roast tomatoes over the stove from now on. Well at least until we can get a new one."
"So where have you been?" Veniciano smelled wine.
"I found this videogame addict meeting and went, I had to rush though because it was going on when I found out about it." Romano answered. "Then after that, I had a few drinks."
"You drank a lot of wine and got lost, didn't you?"
"I guess I couldn't hide that…"
"Don't worry, I just had one or two…" Another hiccup. "I'm fine."
"I'm glad you're trying to get help, but please avoid getting an addiction to wine…"
"It's fine!" Romano shouted, going to his room. "I'm going to bed now!" He crash landed on his bed, having another Mario-themed dream.
"Hey Romano." Princess Spain again, wearing a less revealing dress that Nintendo would probably agree to. "So how have you been, it's been a while…"
"Spain, please leave me alone…" Romano groaned. "I don't want these dreams anymore. They remind me of how Veni broke my Wii and how I can't play anymore…"
"So you're really quitting Mario?"
"I'm trying, that's pretty much all I can do…"
"I see…" Princess Spain sighed, Yoshi (America in a dinosaur costume) sat on her lap, eating a hamburger with mushrooms.
"Well, if you're really going to quit, we should have at least one more adventure, don't you think?"
"Yeah… One last time just to settle the score." Romano said, putting on his hat. "Allright, I accept your challenge.
"Hey Romano?" Veniciano's voice. Once again he wore his Luigi costume, just something was different about him. "Where the heck am I?"
"Oh Veni, I'm glad you're here. I don't know whether you're just apart of my dream, but I'm glad you're here. Now we can do this together, just like real brothers!"
"Um… Yeah, okay. But I've never played Mario before…"
"It's okay, just fallow my lead!"
