You started to walk towards the German Brother's house, enjoying the calming setting around you. Germany had always been a peaceful country in your mind, no matter what your peers said. A few barks interrupted your thoughts and you looked up to see Aster, Berlitz, and Blackie running at you happily.
Berlitz tackled you and started to lick your face, making you squeal, "B-Berlitz stop! Please!" The dog just continued until Ludwig ran up to you and hauled berlitz off of you.
"Sorry about zat. I had let zem out and I didn't expect zem to run off..."
You waved your hands frantically back and forth, "Oh no! It's fine, really!"
The german chuckled, something Gilbert told you was rare, but you heard it too much to think the prussian was right. He glanced at his watch, "Oh. Sorry (y/n), I have to go. Feliciano needed the dogs so I have to get going." You gave him quick nod before watching him walk away, the three dogs following behind him. You turned on your heel and continued to the house.
"I might as well at least see Gilbert." You sighed as you walked up the driveway. With a flick of your wrist, you knocked on the door a few times. it took a few minutes before the prussian opened the door, "Hallo, Frau. Vhat are you doing here?"
You fidgeted slightly, swaying back and forth, "Oh... I just wanted to hang out...If thats okay." Gilbert smiled and nodded, moving out the door frame so you could get in. He led you to the couch and sat down, patting the spot beside him for you to sit down next to him, which you did.
The two of you conversed for awhile, until the power suddenly went out. Gilbert chuckled, "Voah. I didn't expect zat to happen, huh Frau?" He paused, waiting for a reply , "Frau? Hallo? (y/n)? Are you here?" A slight whimper came from the other side of the room, so he made his way over to where he heard it. All he could see was the outline of your figure, crumpled in a ball in the corner. He knelt down beside you, "Are you okay...?"
You nodded, "Y-yeah... I-I'm fine... don't worry ab--" The boom of thunder cut you off, making you squeal in fear.
"(y/n)! It's okay. Don't vorry." Gilbert comforted you, wrapping his pale arms around you, "Shh... nozing is going to hurt you... Ze avesome me vill protect you..." All you could do was give out a soft whimper, a small blush spreading across your cheeks. He shushed you and rubbed your back sympathetically.
A few minutes passed and the two of you stayed like that. He pulled back slightly, causing you to look at him, "(y/n)? Are you okay...?"
You nodded slightly and looked away, "Y-Yeah... Sorry about that... i-i'm just a wimp..." A few tears ran down your cheeks, sparkling in the moonlight. Gilbert saw them and wiped them away with his thumb to make them go away.
A soft sigh left his lips, "Nein... you're not... don't zink you are..." His arms went back around you and he leaned in, pressing his lips against yours. Your eyes widened slightly and you gasped. Gilbert pulled back, "Ich liebe dich, (y/n)..."
You blushed and looked at his ruby eyes, "I-I love you too, Gilbert..." The two of you kissed again and snuggled closer. After a couple of minutes, you fell asleep in his arms and Gilbert chuckled softly, picking you up and setting you on the couch before laying beside you. Soon, he fell asleep as well.
~Timeskip to the next morning~
Ludwig walked in the next morning and saw the two of you on the couch. He noticed the power was out and smiled slightly, "I guess he found out after all..." He thought to himself before going to fix the power.
