All you had heard about were these parties America had been hosting. You had heard that is was like a full-proof e-harmony;you decided to go today. You packed your purse fun of cosmetics and perfumes, just in case the game looked tough.
When you arrived, you were surprised, you were the only girl.
"I don't stalk you...so don't ask! I just knew you were coming..." America gave you a thumbs up while blushing.
"How exactly does that work...you can't know where she is without looking for her..." Britain slyly stuck his tongue out at America.
"Dude, whatever, go eat yourself...any way, ___-"
"Ad you talk to her so causally! Yes, it's apparent he stalks you..." Britain was satisfied with his deduction.
"Okay dude, that's enough, lets get this started." America led you to the table. "Ok just pick a piece of paper!" America backed away as you picked a piece...
"Germania?" You didn't even know who that was...but he stepped forward. A man that looked much like Germany, but with long hair...now is made sense to you...Germany, Germania.
"That's me. We can go now." He faintly smiled and walked with you to closet. It was indeed awkward, you didn't even know this man, yet you were locked in a closet with him.
"So, I've really been looking forward to this...it got everyone talking..." You began the conversation.
"It's my first day too, I'm surprised I got picked...anyway...I have children...so you know." Germania, again, grinned. "They are very cute...cute little ones." He looked back up to you. "However, my wife is long gone. And it's gotten rather...lonely. " he looked back up. "Sorry. I guess I shouldn't have said that. It was stupid...not like you care though." He looked at the wall to avoid you.
"No. You're fine...I don't mind at all. I'm single...have been since I was born...but I love kids too! Maybe I could meet your kids sometime?"
"You've probably met them.."
"Oh, who are they?"
"Holy Roman Empire and Prussia...I love them dearly..."
"Oh! You're right! I know them both...you're right! They are cute..." You smiled at him. "You don't have to be so stern-looking....there's no reason to be angry. Loosen up..." You were nervous about saying that, but managed to force it out.
"Loosen up...?" He looked at the floor once again. "I'm sorry...I'm just...I've ceased for quite a while..and it gets rather lonely in the afterlife. I guess I just really want to be with someone. " he looked at you. "I've known you since you were little and watched you grow up...you're ____'s daughter. I was much younger then. I fell in love with you. You reminded me of my wife. But telling you seemed wrong...I never knew what to say. " He remained silent.
You had no idea. You, for what you knew, thought this man was a stranger, and now he's saying he's known you your whole life and that he loves you...you liked him too...you both liked kids, you were both quiet, you both had a rough personality, you both were lonely....
"We're alike." You smiled. "I like that. If you love me.l.then tell me..." You looked at him, longing to hear those three life-changing words.
He looked at you in shock...finally showing emotion. "I...I love you,___" he immediately reached for you and held you close.
"I love you too." How did you fall in love so quickly? Was it predestined? It didn't matter now. All that mattered is that you fill his empty arms until you joined him in the afterlife.
The door opened. "As I said. Nearly every time, people are on top of each other!? What am I? A matchmaker? I'm never opening the closet door again..." America walked away.
