England x Reader x America
You used to be a rich girl. But your dad's company went bankrupt, so you couldn't live in the big mansion any more. So you moved to the village, and lived happier than ever in your little home, even though it wasn't much. Your dad was now a blacksmith and your mom was a seamstress. You were an only child. You somehow found yourself taking a stroll in the woods, on a path that seemed familiar to you somehow...
'I must've wandered off...' you thought. You usually didn't walk this far or at night. It was quiet foggy. And you were wearing a black dress that went a little below your knees, with puffs on your shoulders, long sleeves, and a red rose pinned over where your heart was. Your hair were in ponytails tied with red ribbons, with black stockings and shoes. You wondered where were you before this, and very confused now. You decided to turn around and hopefully found your way home, and you wouldn't say before dark, because the sun had already set. As you turned around, you found two handsome men, which was creepy.
One had blonde hair, with glowing emerald eyes in which you could easily get lost in. He had fuzzy eyebrows that looked like caterpillars. He wore a punkish, yet elegant, attire that was black and red. The other had glasses, with sky blue eyes, dirty blond hair, and had a similar attire to Arthur's. The creepy part was that they were behind you. Were they stalkers? Or were they just some men?
"Um...hello. May I ask why you gentlemen are out on a night like this?" you asked, as a chilly breeze brush against your sensitive skin. It felt quiet cold tonight.
"I may ask you the same thing, love. My name is Arthur," said the one with the blond hair, taking your hand and kissed it, making you blush a bit at his handsome face. The other took your hand and kissed it also.
"I'm Alfred," he said, winking.
"U-um...it's been a pleasure meeting you...but I have to get home before me parents worry...," you said, shaking them off.
"Wait, my lady. You shouldn't go home at this hour. It's quiet late," said Arthur, taking your wrist.
"You can stay with us tonight."
They didn't seem like bad people. Sure, they were strangers, but what could go wrong?
"Alright...I guess I could..."
"Great. Let's go."
They lead you to an old looking mansion covered in ivy and vines. Strange, it looked so familiar. But that didn't really matter at the time.
"Uh...thank you for letting me stay...," you said, as they creaked open the door, bats flying out at your faces.
'What the...?!' you thought, while jumping up a bit.
"Tea?" asked Arthur, leading you to a random room filled with vanilla scented candles. There sure were a lot of spider webs, and they were huge. They really needed to clean this place.
There was tea, cookies and...scones prepared all ready. Alfred poured a cup and handed it to you, some of it spilled on your face, apparently it wasn't hot, but warm. Arthur licked the tea off your face, making you blush bright red.
"Are you alright...?" he asked.
"Thanks...," you said, giving them a small smile. It was a bit uncomfortable because it was pretty dark even with the candles. You took a sip, and suddenly felt drowsy. The men both smirked in amusement. They took a dark cloth and blind folded you.
"Wha--?" you said, before drifting off in Alfred's arms.
"Iggy~ Alfie~~~," said the seven year old you. You were playing with your favorite dolls, Arthur and Alfred. They absolutely adored you. But when you were given a new doll, they got jealous and you ignored them. After your dad's company got bankrupt, you had forgotten that you had left Arthur and Alfred.
~~~End of super short dream~~~
You woke up on a bed, still blindfolded, but there was a little hole your eye could peak through. In the dim candle light, you could see Arthur and Alfred smiling and grinning in a really creepy way. Their shadows...you saw were very small, and...and...
At that moment, you realized who they were.
They were Iggy and Alfie, your dolls.
These guys were human!
You looked around you, there were...your old teddy bears and dolls stabbed with bloody knives. In fact, the whole bed was stained in dried, dark blood. You turned your head to find that the men were looking at you, still creepy smiles on their faces.
"Oh...look, Al...she found out our secret..."
"Hm...naughty girls should be punished, shouldn't they, Iggy?"
They looked at each other, their eyes now glowing red. They turned to you, you were sitting there shocked, and quiet scared. Arthur pinched your cheeks and forced you to smile. You smiled very nervously, slowly trying to get off the bed as they took out knives from their pockets. You made a run for it, and luckily the door was opened. They chased after you like maniacs, still knives in hand. The place was huge and you probably would get lost easily. A knife flew past your head, cutting off on of the ponytails your hair was in, you screamed. The knife stuck on an old painting. You didn't care about your hair nor the painting that was probably bloody expensive, you just kept running.
YOU WERE SO GONNA DIE!!!
There was a hallway with thick spiderwebs and huge spiders, you screamed as one got on to your face, you shook your head, trying to get it off. But that didn't work so well. You could hear the men hot on your tail and laughing like witches. Finally you found another hallway and turned. Thank god you weren't in high heels. You went from hall to hall, then found the stairs, and slid down the rail because it was faster. Another knife passed your head luckily missing it. You were on the second floor now. Maybe you should find a window to jump out of instead of trying to find ore stairs? You thought about finding ore stairs just because you didn't feel like jumping out the window. You kept running and running, you ran into another hall, and turns out...
IT WAS A DEAD END!
'AW MAN!!! NOW WHAT?!' you thought frantically, looking around for a room you could maybe hide in for a bit. Your breath was heavy, and you panted real hard. You found a random room and ran in to it, locking the door behind you. You walking quietly in the room, trying to find a window or something but it was pitch black. You kicked something and picked it up.
You tried to turn it on, and luckily it worked, but the light was a bit weak. It was a study(the room). Crap, and there wasn't a single window. They banged on the door, trying to knock it down. They stabbed
'What should I do?!' you thought, looking for a place to hide or something. Nope, couldn't find a place big enough or good enough to hide. And they were close to knocking down the door. You saw a kinda weird lever in the corner.
'I hope that's what I'm think it is!!' You pulled down the lever as hard as you could, and as you suspected, it was a secret passage way. You ran in to it, and closed it behind you. Wen Arthur and Alfred finally knocked down the door, you were no where to be found.
"Bloody hell! Where did she go, you git?!"
"Dude! I don't know!"
They decided to split and search the mansion.
You collapsed, then got up again because there was still some spiders in your hair, and brushed them off, the stepped on them just because. The secret passage way was freaky. Like in those movies. It had a lot of spider webs, and there were even two human skeletons and little bones probably from rats who starved to death. You heard a little squeak and screamed. You pointed your light in the direction and turns out it was a mouse.
"Ha...you scared me there, little guy...," you said, relieved. The little mouse scampered towards you, as if it knew you. It was quiet blond, now that you took a good look at it...
"Hello, frau," spoke the mouse, in a deep, German accent.
"GAHHHH!!!" you said, falling over like in the movies.
"Calm down...I know you're freaking out, but please, hear me out," he said.
"Okay...this has been a strange day...I should expect this kinda thing...," you brushed off the dirt on the freaking dress, and quietly listened.
"So you see, we were all--"
"Yes, WE. Anyways, we were turned to mice by Lukas, apparently he hasn't came back."
"Lukas! You know Lukas?!" Lukas was your best friend! He always had a poker face, and he was in to magic.
"Yes!" the mouse exclaimed."Do you know where he is?"
"At home, probably."
"Can you take us to him?! We REALLY need to change back," he begged on his little knees.
"How many of you are there....? And I might be able to take you to him....IF those frea--- I mean, Arthur and Alfred let me out of here without killing me."
"Wait...Arthur and Alfred...?"
"Yeah. They were the ones who chased me. Luckily I escaped by coming here. Man, they're creepy," you shivered in fear at the thought of the two men.
"What...?" what did he mean?
"No, they're not! They've been chasing me for at least an hour! Or what felt like an hour..."
"You must've seen ghosts, then."
"Ghosts? PSH. No such thing. They could've just went through the walls to get me. AND they should've been floating."
"They are. Ghosts aren't like that at all! They have the same abilities, or more like, do the same things as live people, but they just can't move things psychically. Also, you've seen enough weird things today, haven't you?"
"B-but they served me tea earlier...and well...yeah, I guess..."
"That was probably Arthur's magic, or his illusions."
"Then how did that knife they threw at me cut my hair...?"
"I told you, it's probably his magic."
"Okay...but I'm totally convinced."
"Fine. Anyways, we need to get you and the rest of us, out of here!"
"Yeah. That's what I was thinking. And wait...how the heck do you survive here? I mean, if Arthur and Alfred are ghosts, and ghosts don't eat...then how do you survive?"
"I don't really know. But it might be Lukas' magic."
"Okay...now show me where everyone else is, then maybe I could help you guys."
"Alright. Follow me."
You followed the little blonde mouse to a little room. Man, this was a huge place. The door was open, an you could see that there were 4 other mice in there.
"By the way...I never caught your name. What is it?" you asked the little mouse.
"Well, nice to meet you, Ludwig. I'm ________________."
"Who's the frau, brother?!" asked a white, albino mouse.
"This is _______________. She is here to help us. ________________, this is my older brother Gilbert."
"REALLY?! FINALLY!!! I'VE BEEN TRAPPED IN THIS BODY FOR 6 YEARS!!! AND TRUST ME, IT ISN'T AWESOME."
"Okay...?" you said, cue the anime sweat drop.
"My name is Kiku," said a black mouse."It is a pleasure to meet you. And I am glad that you have come to help us."
"Um, it's nice meeting you too."
"I'm-a Feliciano! And this is my-a brother, Lovino~!" said a brown mouse with a little curl. You looked towards his brother, who looked very similar to him.
"Nice meeting you all...but we really need to get out of here. Without being killed," you said.
"Without being killed?" asked Gilbert.
"She said she saw Arthur and Alfred," explained Ludwig.
"WHOA! Aren't they dead?!" exclaimed Gilbert.
"That's what I said."
"Do you know a way out of here without getting us killed?"
At that moment, you heard footsteps, and you didn't need to turn around to see who it was.
"RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" you shouted, well, whisper shouted, so they(as in Iggy and Al) wouldn't hear. Hopefully. You picked up the 5 little mice and slipped them in to a little pocket in your dress.(yes! pockets. you'll need them) You ran, hopefully finding a way out of this passage way. And apparently Iggy and Al were right behind you, not letting you get away. Gilbert could see the two men holding lanterns when he turned around.
"WHOA!!! Al's alive! Or, I think he is," exclaimed Gilbert.
"Gilbert?!" said Al, who stopped from throwing a knife that was in his hand. And he stopped running.
"Gilbert?" said the confused Brit, who stopped also.
"IT'S THE AWESOME ME~~~!!! THE AWESOME GILBERT!!!"
You mentally face palmed. Since you couldn't physically do it at the moment.
"Thanks for distracting them, Gil," you said.
"No prob, frau. But I don't understand WHY they're acting like maniacs trying to kill you."
"Long story. They're really sensitive, you know."
"Al? Sensitive? PFT. I understand Arthur being sensitive, but Al?"
You shrugged, and kept running.
"Do you know a way outta here? Please tell me you do..."
"Ve~ Yes! Just take a--"
"Take a left. The Italian isn't good with directions," said Ludwig.
You took a left, and you could still hear footsteps not too far away.
"YO, AL!! Long time no see, eh?! Why are you trying to kill the frau, anyway?!"
"YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND, GIL!!!" he shouted back.
'Wow, sounds like these guys are good friends. BUT STILL THIS GUY IS TRYING TO KILL ME HERE!!!' you thought as another of Alfred's knives almost hit your head.
"That was close," said Kiku.
"DUDE!!! ARE YOU CRAZY?! THIS ISN'T LIKE YOU!!!" shouted Gil.
'I'm kinda lucky that he distracts them so much...' you thought.
Arthur threw another knife, which cut off your other ponytail.
"AHHH!!! You okay,______________?!" exclaimed Feli.
"Oh, I'm used to this," you said sarcastically, trying to run faster.
"TAKE A RIGHT!!" shouted Ludwig, and you did, but all that did was make them follow.
"ALFRED!!! YOU'RE LIKE SOME MANIAC RIGHT NOW!!!" shouted Gil again.
"SHUT UP GIL!!!"
"BLOODY HELL!!! YOU GIT, CONCENTRATE!!!"
'I HOPE WE'RE ALMOST THERE CUZ I'M HURTING LIKE HELL!!' you thought.
Arthur and Alfred were actually getting a bit tired now, and you, you were practically dehydrated and probably going to die. Arthur threw a ninja star and missed. Okay, maybe you were going to die, if so, was your life worth living? Maybe it was.....maybe it wasn't. MUSTN'T STRESS ABOUT THAT NOW!!! YOU GOTTA RUN FASTER!
"VE~~~!!! I SURRENDER!!!" said Italy, making his voice almost identical to yours, and looking like he was waving a white flag or something.
Oh, wait, he was.
Iggy and Al stopped in their tracks, thinking it was you who said that. Those idiots. It took them a good 3 minutes to find out was going on. While they were just standing there, you had a chance to run out of the mansion.
"LEFT! LEFT! RIGHT! LEFT! RIGHT! RIGHT! RIGHT! LEFT! THERE IT IS!"
You found a door. Ludwig said it lead to outside, and you hoped he was right because Arthur and Alfred were getting closer. You opened it, and damn, it was really hard to open, and when you couldn't open it, they were right behind you ready to kill.
"OH MY GOD," said Gilbert, his hands on his face, okay, more like paws. Alfred's knife was positioned at your neck.
"Y-you...Alfie...please, don't do this...I still love you...," you pleaded, not planning to run away anymore, since it was no use anyway."Is killing me going to make you feel any better?"
"AL! You don't need to do this," said Gilbert, trying to defend you.
Al moved his knife to your arm instead, cutting the skin under the long sleeves and leaving deep wounds in an instant. You collapsed and moaned in pained. This was probably what you got for...whatever you did to them. You were going to die at this rate. Arthur came forward, he was going to finish off the one he loved so much. You looked at him and smiled at him weakly. You didn't want to hurt any more than this, and you didn't want to hurt anyone, either. You coughed up some blood, it dripped down your lips and on to the dress you were wearing plus on Arthur's face. He was pained by this, he thought it was going to be easier. His knife aimed at your stomach. His eyes became blurry as tears rolled down his blood stained face. His hands trembled, his lips quivering. You didn't really care, you were going to die already. He dropped the knife and sobbed in to your chest.
"I-Iggy?!" exclaimed Alfred.
Again, you weakly smiled, and ruffled his hair.
"I...love you...," you were about to say "guys" but apparently...you know.
"___________________!" Arthur and Alfred shouted, the little mice scampering out of her pocket and on to her lap.
~~~Whatever this is~~~
You blinked once. Then twice.
"__________________! Dude, you scared us!!" said Alfred.
"W-what happened...? I swear, I was going to--OW!!" you said, your sides hurting like heck!
"What?" asked Arthur.
"I was about to die," you replied.
"Oh, but you were."
"I was? What happened?"
"Frau, you got shot!" said Gilbert.
"Never mind. You really worried us,________________."
"Okay, so basically, I got shot in the ribs, almost died and you guys were worried?"
"I had a dream where I died...or at least, I thought so. I could actually feel the pain that's left in my legs and--"
You looked at your arms, deep wounds. Your legs hurt? Was that...dream...real?
"What-a happened?" asked Feli.
"Ha ha. It was like hell."
"Idiota," said Lovino.
"PSH. Damn, my legs hurt. Hey wait, what day is it...?"
"October 31st, dude!! HALLOWEEN!!! AND CANDY!" said Al.
After a while you still didn't know if that dream was real or not. But all you knew was...
TRICKS AND TREATS FOR YOU.
But mostly tricks.
The End...or is it?
