Sighing in exhaustion, you left your last class for the day and headed back to your apartment. You didn't know why, but you just couldn't keep your eyes open for very long today. It's not like you didn't get enough sleep last night. Heck, you didn't even get too much sleep. You'd gotten an almost even eight hours, so you should be fine. But for some reason, you weren't. And despite all of your efforts to wake up, your body wasn't having it.
So with eyelids drooping, you trudged your merry way back home.
With a happy groan, you entered your one-floor apartment and flopped down on the floor, not even bothering to close the door just yet. After contemplating the pros and cons of falling asleep in your entry way, you decided it might be a tad bit safer for your health if you slept in your bed. Because having someone get into your house is no biggie.
Wearily standing up, you closed and locked your door, dropped your school stuff in the kitchen and made your way to your bedroom. Your bed had never looked so beautiful. You happily stripped down to the cami you were wearing and your panties and ungracefully plopped down on the bed, deciding that pulling up your blankets was too much work.
You hummed a soft tune to yourself as you slowly slipped into the realm of dreams.
--Timeskip to After a Two Hour Nap
You felt something poke your cheek and lazily lifted your hand to brush whatever it was away. When nothing happened, you sleepily snuggled into your pillow, prepared to fall asleep again. What you didn't expect, though, was for your pillow to have abs.
Jumping up in shock, you fell off the bed.
"Kesesesesese!" Your face continued making friends with the floor as you pondered over whether that was a laugh or a dying snake.
After deciding that you would only figure out what that noise was if you looked, you slowly sat up and peered over the edge of your bed.
And promptly forgot how to breathe.
There was a man in your bed.
And not just any man. An albino by the name of Gilbert Beilschmidt, aka PRUSSIA, was the man in your bed. But the thing is
HE'S A FICTIONAL CHARACTER.
"Kesesese! Vell, vell, vell. Looks like the frau decided to vake up after all." Oh. So that noise was him. Your brain started functioning again and you inhaled sharply.
"Vat, frau? Did I take your breath away?" You scowled as he laughed at his corny joke. Yeah, you may have thought he was a pretty hot character, but that didn't mean you actually thought you could deal with him in real life. But it looks like you would have to.
"How did you get into my house?" He stopped laughing and looked at you.
"Hell if I know, frau." You sighed and stared at him.
"You expect me to believe you haven't the slightest inkling as to how you got here, Prussia?" He gaped at you for a moment before a cocky smirk stretched across his face.
"So you know ze awesome me, do you? It's no surprise really. My awesomeness knows no bounds." You rolled your eyes. He was exactly the way he was in Hetalia.
"But to answer your question, liebe. No. I really don't know how I got here. One minute I vas sleeping in mein awesome bed, the next, I vake up with a hot frau sleeping on me." You blushed when he called you hot. You really hadn't expected that. You glanced away from him for a second before making eye contact again.
"So do you know where you are?" you asked.
"Nein. Although it's definitely somewhere far away from my home. Because my cell phone is not working at all." You grimaced. Looks like you were going to have to explain to him that he didn't really exist in this world. Forgetting that you were just wearing panties and a cami, you stood up to go grab one of your Hetalia DVDs.
Prussia gave a low wolf whistle when he saw your panties.
"Impressive underwear, fraulein." You turned bright red and ran into your closet. You hastily grabbed a pair of shorts and pulled them on. Prussia whined in disappointment when you stepped out in your new bottoms. You glared at him and went over to your desk, pulling open one of the drawers and searching around for your copy of the third season.
"So vat's your name, frau?" You glanced at him out of the corner of your eye, before turning back to the drawer.
"(Full Name). Call me (Name)."
"Nice name. So you already know I am ze awesome Prussia, but you can call me Gilbert, or Gil. Or just plain Awesome." You snickered at his confidence and shook your head.
"I'll stick with Gilbert, thanks." He shrugged.
"Suit yourself, frau." You rummaged through the drawer a little more and finally found the DVD case.
"A-HA!" you cried out in triumph. Gilbert looked over at you in confusion.
"'A-ha,' vat?" You turned and walked back over to him.
"The reason your phone doesn't work
..," you hesitated, not sure how to exactly go about telling him he was in another world.
..Go on," he prompted. You took a deep breath and handed him the DVD, front side facing up.
"Is because you aren't in your world anymore." He stared at the case in his hands and then flipped it over to examine the back. He scoffed and handed it back to you.
"You're real funny, (Name). How ze hell could I end up in another vorld." You shrugged helplessly.
"You really expect me to know? Look, if you want proof, why don't I put the DVD in and I can show you the anime that's about you and all of the other countries." He looked at you skeptically but nodded. You went over to your laptop, brought it out of sleep mode, and popped in the DVD. Once you set everything up to play, you went and sat on the bed. Gilbert quickly scooted over next to you.
--Another Timeskip! This Time to the End of the Disc!
You had just finished watching the entire third season of Hetalia. Quietly, you went over and took the disc out and put it away, shutting your laptop. Sighing, you turned and looked at Gilbert, who was even whiter than normal. You slowly walked over to him and rested a hand on his arm. Quicker than a flash, he wrapped you in his arms and pulled you right up against him. You stood between his legs, a bit stunned at what he'd just done. He must be pretty shaken up if he's seeking solace in a complete stranger.
You hesitantly wrapped your arms around him and held his head to your chest. Stroking his hair, you softly hummed in an attempt to calm his nerves. It took several minutes, but he eventually managed to relax enough to speak, although he didn't let go of you.
"So I'm in another vorld. Mein Gott, how did that even happen." You continued petting his hair and let him figure things out. He pressed his cheek into your collarbone and sighed heavily. You glanced down at him, but didn't say anything.
"And I suppose you don't have any ideas as to how I could get back?" You shook your head.
"Sorry, Gilbert. But I don't even know how you got here, let alone how to get you back." He nodded in understanding before pulling away, slipping his hands down to rest on your hips, yours resting on his shoulders.
"You've been surprisingly good about all of zis, fraulein. Vhy is zat?" You looked at him for a moment before staring at your window.
"To be honest, I don't know. I mean, there's no way to tell if this is real or not, but I figure I may as well help you if I can. Because I at least know who you are, in a round-about way. So I don't have to worry about you doing something really bad. And it's not like it's an easy thing, dealing with getting sent to another world." He nodded again and leaned his head on your left shoulder.
"Danke, (Name). I really appreciate your help." You smiled and patted his head.
"It's no problem, Gil. You can stay with me until you figure out how you want to deal with this." His hands tightened on your hips for a moment before loosening up.
It had been two months since Gil had ended up in your apartment. By this point, you figured that there wasn't much chance of him going back home. But from how he was acting, you got the feeling he didn't mind so much now.
He still lived with you, but he'd gotten a job at a mechanics nearby to help pay rent, and worked there during the day while you were at classes. He pitched in with cooking and cleaning, two things you didn't expect him to ever offer to do. And since he knew his engineering, he could fix most problems with your car or things that popped up around the house.
All in all, you got pretty lucky when Gil came to you. Although you'd recently started developing feelings for him, which might end up badly. Because even though he was still here, you never knew if one day he might just disappear.
It was Saturday and you didn't have classes and hadn't been scheduled to go into work for some reason. So you were lazing about the apartment, keeping occupied until Gil came home from his short shift.
You felt warm when you thought that. It almost sounded like you two were together. You shook your head, even if he ended up staying here, there was no way he'd like you.
Speak of the devil, and he shall appear.
You heard the front door open.
"(Naammmmeee)! I'm hoommmee!" You laughed at his greeting. About a month after his arrival, he'd taken to yelling out the weird greeting every time he stepped through the front door. Even if he'd only been gone a minute.
"In the living room, Gil," you called out to him. You pulled your feet up under your legs to make room for him. He came into the room, dropped his coat on a chair and dropped down next to you.
"How was work?" you asked. He almost always had a story to tell about the customers, or his co-workers.
"It vas alright. Nothing special happened."
"Really? Seems like there's always something going on."
Lazy day. You know how it is," he said, fiddling with his hands. You tilted your head as you looked at him. Something was off with Gil. He was acting kinda nervous. You rested a hand on his shoulder, making him flinch away. You pulled back, surprised.
"Gil? Is something wrong?" He shook his head furiously.
"Nein. It's just
I vanted to tell you
" You stared at him, completely baffled. Gilbert was stuttering. Gilbert never did that. Ever. You'd only known him two months and knew that.
He continued fumbling his words for another moment, before throwing his hands in the air.
"Forget this!" he shouted, before grabbing your face and crashing his lips onto yours. You squeaked and threw out your hands to prevent yourself from falling into his lap. He pulled away and looked you in the eye.
"I know we've only known each other for two months, (Name), but
," he paused and took a deep breath. "Ich liebe dich, (Name). I love you, and if you don't feel the same, and vant me to leave
You gaped at him. He loved you?! You grinned broadly and smashed your lips back onto his, causing the both of you to fall off of the couch and onto the floor. The both of you laughed and covered each other's faces in kisses. You pulled away and looked down at him. He stared up at you, twirling a strand of hair around his finger.
"I love you too, silly Prussian," you said, smiling softly. He grinned and tugged lightly on the hair in his hand, demanding another kiss. You obliged, happily leaning down and melding your lips to his.
