You pulled your knees to your chin and hugged them. The late night clouds moved away from the moon, letting the beams dance on your cheeks and reflect off your hair.
You glanced a pile of letters on a small table. They were all from your beloved from distance places that seemed to far away. Why did he have to join the army? Sadness washed over your head and you slowly put your head on your knees.
“Bonk” You looked up. “Bonk”. There it was again. Squinting you stood and walked to the glass doors that led to the balcony. “Bonk” A small pebble bounced off the windowpane. You stared at it and then slowly pushed the doors open. The cool winds made the curtains fly and your hair spin around your face. You looked out across the dark landscape and saw nothing, but the shadows of the trees. Hesitatively you stepped out onto the balcony, pulling your clothes around you.
You jumped so badly and nearly fell over. You heard a sweet and familiar laugh. You heart stopped in your chest and you scrambled to the edge of the stone railing. You looked down and there he was. He blond hair was wind tousled and looked like he just got off the plane in his uniform. In one hand he held an army hat and the other was in pocket. He looked exactly how you remembered him, perfect. Tears flowed down your cheeks.
He smiled up at you and whispered, “I’m home (y/n).”
Though your salty tears you managed a smile, “Welcome home Germany.”
He looked kindly at you, “I have something for you,” he said. Before you could protest, he knelt to the dew damp grass and from his pocket pulled a dark box. He opened it and a simple ring glinted inside. “(Y/n)?” you stared at him, “Will you marry me?”
You at him and you looked down. “You’re a jerk you know that?”
“You left me here…there were times when I thought you’d never come home…and if you did…it would be in a box.”
“I know…I’m sorry.”
You shook your head, the tears kept coming, “But…I-I still love you?” you looked at him, “How is that?”
“I’ll never leave you again.” He promised. You nodded, “Will you marry me?” You nodded silently. “I’ll come up.” He said.
“No, wait.” You said. You were already over the railing and making your down.
“(Y/n)!” Germany cried and rushed forward and caught you as your fell.
You both went tumbling down the lawn. You groaned and looked up, “Germany! Are you alright?!” he was still under you. “Germany?” you whimpered.
Suddenly he leaned up and kissed you. He opened his eyes and grinned, “I’m right here.” You stared at him, not sure if you were angry or happy. You opened your mouth, but he took you hand and slipped a cool metal band around you finger. You glanced at it and then he pulled you into his strong arms, his safe arms. “I want you to be mine forever.”
You anger slipped away and you spoke into his soft hair, “I already was.”
