169 (who?)

I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losing my faith today
Falling off the edge today

"Gilbert that's it I'm through," you shouted dragging your suit case to the door.
"No __________, please don't go!"
You pushed him off, "I'm sick of the lies and the late nights. You always get called out of town, but I never know why. Sometimes you spend a whole night at a bar and then I have to go pick you up because your designated driver has ditched you!"
"___________, please don't leave me," he whimpered.
"Ok," you sighed, "Gilbert you have one chance to tell me one thing. What is your job?"
Gilbert froze. He said nothing and for what seemed like an eternity the two of you stood there. He opened his mouth several times, trying to answer you.
You gave a bitter smile, "That's what I thought." And with that you reached out to take the knob of the door into your hand.
"___________, please," said Gilbert putting his hand over yours, "don't leave me. I-I-I Iche liebe dich…please."
You opened the door and walked out.

I am just a man
Not superhuman
I'm not superhuman
Someone save me from the hate

Gilbert felt tears come to his eyes. This was worse than any of the wars he had endured over the hundreds of years he had been alive. This hurt more than when he was disbanded. __________ was leaving him. He couldn't stand to lose you too.
So why couldn't he tell you…why couldn't he tell you he was Prussia?

It's just another war
Just another family torn
Falling from my faith today
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

Tears ran down your eyes as you slammed the car door closed. You griped the steering wheel in your hands, but did not start the car. You needed him more than you let on. Resting your head against the steering wheel you cried softly.
Then you started the car and backed down the driveway.

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

It had been a week since _____________ left him. And all Gilbert could do was stay home and watch old movies the two of you had watched together on your dates. Every morning his brother would bring him two six packs and two six packs in the evening.
Gilbert didn't know any other way to deal with his pain other than beer.
"Gilbert you have to stop drinking, its killing you," said Ludwig.
Gilbert looked over lazily at his younger brother, "I can't."
"Why the hell not?"
"Cause she's gone Luddy, my life has no meaning now."
"Who left you?" Ludwig groaned.
"______________," said Gilbert. "The nicest, most beautiful, most perfect girl in the world. And she's gone!"
"Well why did she leave?"

I've gotta fight today
To live another day
Speaking my mind today
My voice will be heard today

After Gilbert explained why she left Ludwig slapped him upside the head. "You dumkoff, why didn't you tell her?"
Ludwig pinched the bride of his nose, "You should know the rules. If she gets married to you, you can tell her. If she means that much to you, go tell her!"

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
I'm not superhuman
My voice will be heard today

"_______________!" shouted Gilbert from outside your window.  You had moved back in with your parents and they weren't all that happy that you had lived with him in the first place. Not only didn't they like him, but your parents were very old fashioned.
"Gil, go away," you said when you opened the door.
The Prussian embraced your tightly, "Please, I need you don't go."
Gently you tried to pry him off, but it was no good. "Gilbert let go."
"Nein," he said holding you tighter. "Only if you let me explain."
"That's all I wanted in the first place."

It's just another war
Just another family torn
My voice will be heard today
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

You led him into the family room and watched as he dug into his pocket, "First I need you to promise me something."
"That you won't leave no matter what I tell you." He pulled out a small box. "And that you'll marry me."
You scowled, "Gilbert, that is utterly-."
"I can't tell you otherwise."
Sighing you said, "Fine."

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

He told you everything. For a while you just sat there. Not a word passed between you too.
"Is that all?" you asked trying to suppress the urge to punch him.
Gilbert nodded.
You embraced him, "I love you, you know that?"
Gilbert smiled. "I love you too."
The two of you broke away. "And the drinking?"
"Oh, I just drink because I AM AWESOME!"
You did a facepalm. Typical Gilbert.

When my mom is drunk...
Just imagine England drunk after having 62 gallons of vodka, while dancing the Macarena also singing Never Gonna Give You Up

This was awesome! When I saw the lyrics, I figured it wouldn't be the same if I didn't have the song on, and I was right. So I found it on my iPod and played it.

You deserve a hug! :iconletmehugyouplz: Thank you for making this story AWESOME!! :iconyayprussiaplz:
