I got out of the shower, and pulled a warm towel around myself as I walked out. I felt a bit better than when I'd first arrived at the Germanic Nation's home, but the echo of England's treason on what we had together still resonated through me.

I toweled myself off, and let out a sigh. I didn't want to bother the two nations with my problems, but I knew this was the only safe haven I could take for the night. After all, Prussia is my best friend, and he'd surely help me when I needed it, right?

When I dressed myself, I put the towel in a dirty laundry hamper, and opened the door. It didn't take me long to navigate my way through the beautiful, yet simple house that belonged to Germany when I reached a door. I knocked, and heard a shout from a very obvious Prussian to come in. I lightly padded down the steps, and smiled.

Prussia and I had been on first name basis ever since the end of the Revolutionary War. He'd helped me become independent, and helped my troops have a strong position on the field. I hated that they made him dissolve into Germany, but it was for the best, I guess.

Gilbert was waiting in a chair when I entered. From hundreds of years of experience, he could tell that I was faking my happiness and smile. "Leibe, vhat happened with you and zhat Muststuck?", he asked, obviously angry. But there was some other emotion I couldn't quite pick out from his protectiveness and anger.

"I came home from the doctors...and I found him and Francis in our room trying to mask an affair...", I replied quietly, and looked down. "He tried to come after me, but I yelled at him, and left...", I said in a soft voice, and looked away. I was obviously hurt, and he gave me tight hug.

After a moment, he let go and looked at me. "So ah...why were you at the doctors?", he asked quietly. I looked up at him, afraid to meet his red eyes to my blue. "I...I'm pregnant..."

Gilbert looked like he might blow a gasket. "And it's his?"

I gave a meek nod. "I've only known a couple of days, and I wanted to make sure that I was before I told him..."

Gilbert gave a not, and pinched the bridge of his nose between his fingers. "I could seriously kill him for this..."


Well, there's the end of chapter two! Really, these first two chapters were a lot longer because it was all one chapter, but I kinda got lazy. So here it is!

I plan to continue updating all of these, so keep an eye out for them! Curses and Magick is next, along with RusIta. I'll hopefully get them up tomorrow.

On Mange Pat!
