White Flag

You sighed, squeezing the hand of the copper-haired man as you lay on the hospital bed. He was sobbing.
-Feli, it's fine. – You said this over and over again, but both of you knew they were sweet nothings.
-B-But, ______, you're hurt! Wounded! Badly! All because of me! H-How are we supposed to--- Mmmf!
He didn't have a chance to finish his sentence as you pulled his face, covered in sweat, dust and tears and lay your lips on his. You knew it. It didn't need to be said out loud.
But it HAD to be done.
It was war. Great war. Between the Axis and the Allies. As you were part of the Axis, you had to join. But it wasn't as if you wouldn't do it anyway.
Because if you wouldn't, it would be Feliciano lying on the Hospital Bed right now, covered in wounds and bandages.
You have been shot by a Russian in the chest with salt bullets, and let me put this straight – salt hurts AS HELL. You were still feeling the pain from it, but tried your best to keep a normal face when Feliciano was around. Then there was your leg, it has been shot by the Americans a while back, and you struggled with the bleeding leg for several days until you found the nearest hospital. Your fingers were bruised, some of them even broken. Your shoulder was also bandaged, it was also shot.
But you survived.
You're still alive.

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
where's the sense in that?

-_-____! We should have never told you to come! I regret it! – The Italian sobbed, kissing your hand non-stop.
-You shouldn't have done it for me!
-But I love you. – You breathed out, your chest clearly not giving you the ability to properly speak. – And I regret nothing.
-B-But...then you shouldn't love me! I only bring you pain! – His desperate face was even more painful than all wounds you had added together.
-But then...if I didn't confess to you back then...I'd still love you. And it's hard to stop loving someone. – You smiled, knowing everything you said was true.

~*Le flashback*~

-F-F-Feli... – You sat on the kitchen island in the Italian twins' house, playing with your fingers nervously as your cheeks heated up. The Italian turned around to look at you. He was making pasta, and was clearly in a very happy mood.
-Veee~ Si, ______? – He asked, bubbly as usual. would you react if I told you...t-t-that I love you? – You stuttered.
Oh God, this is the lamest thing I've ever said...
-Veee~ I'd kiss you! – Feli exclaimed, throwing his hands in the air happily. – That's what I'd do! And I'd tell you that I love you back! Because that's what you do when you love someone and care about them! – He kissed your cheek as you looked up at him.
-R-Really? S-So you love me? – You asked quietly.
-Si! – And with that, his lips made contact with yours.

~*End of Flashback*~

-Feli...remember that one time... – You asked, gaining his attention.
-Si? – He asked, slightly curious.
-When we went to the park and met Gilbert? And how his bird Gilbird flew away from him with my bird Tutu? – You laughed, and your heart fluttered when you heard him laugh his bubbly laugh as well. ((A/N: I called your bird Tutu. Because I'm just that unimaginative D<))
-Veee~ And how poor Mr. Prussia ran after him! – He laughed.

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

You recalled so many memories with Feliciano. From the park, to the fair, to shopping centres! And the World Meetings!
You had no idea how much time you spent like this.
But you'd spent an eternity to watch Feli laugh and be his bubbly self, if that was the case.
-_______...I'm sorry for my...cry. I really don't want to lose you, that's all. – He looked into your eyes, the golden brown orbs meeting (e/c) ones. You kissed his hand as you brought it up to your lips.
-Promise me...promise me you won't leave me. For anything or anyone. Ever. – You whispered onto his hand, closing your eyes from exhaustion.
-I promise. I won't give up on us. – And with that, he came closer to you and kissed your lips gently.

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

-I've made such a mess of things...Fought in wars that killed millions of people...I regret doing so. I really do. I know what they felt when their relatives were wounded and on verge of death. Because I'm one of them now. And I don't want to lose you. I DON'T WANT TO LOSE YOU! – He cried desperately onto you shoulder he rest his head on as he sat on the chair beside the bed.
-Silly Feli...Of course you won't lose me. I'm not going anywhere. I'm not weak, and neither are you. You just need to stand up and fight. – You said with a crooked smile.
-Fight for what? – He asked, raising his head up to look at you.
-Fight for us.
-But could I live with all this? This mess? Regret?
-Then I will take it all away...If you let me. – You kissed his head that he placed gently on your shoulder once again.
-_______...Ti amo...
-Ti amo tanto, Feli...

I know I left too much mess and
destruction to come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
then I'm sure that that makes sense

-Would you still live with me? With me, who did such things? – He asked doubtfully, tears staining his wonderful face.
-Of course. I don't care about the past, just the future that awaits us. – You smiled. – Hey, Feli~ Imagine if we had a baby! – You laughed, and he laughed even more, but his laugh was more of an excited squeal.
-Or two! – You added, grinning.
-Or three! – Feli closed his eyes dreamily.
-Or four!
-Or seven!
-...Well, that's...just...a lot, don't you think? – You asked, bursting out laughing.

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

-So, Feli~ Where are your famous White Flags? You seem to have them missing from the tents, I've noticed today as the doctors opened the doors and let me see some of the outside. Did Germany or Japan take them off? – You asked, curious of the answer.
The answer was something you'd never expect.
-No, I took them off.
-You?! Why? I thought you only wanted peace? – You asked, your jaw dropping by every second.
-Because that's like giving up on you. And I won't do that. Not this time, si? – He smiled, kissing your cheek. – Ti amo!

And when we meet
Which I'm sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I'll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I've moved on...

-But, _____, are you sure? – He asked quietly, getting your attention.
-Huh? Sure of what? – You asked.
-That you want to be with me? I mean---
-I'm not leaving. Never. – You suddenly burst out laughing. – I sound like an Overly-Attached Girlfriend!
Feli laughed as well.

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

Suddenly, Germany and Japan burst into the hospital room, startling the two of you.
-Veee~ Germany, what's wrong? – Feliciano asked curiously, slightly alarmed of the gleaming baby-blue eyes the German owned.
-We have a Treaty to sign!
-Hai! A Peace Treaty! Itarry, hurry! We arr signed it! – Kiku nodded, not as hyper, but moved.
-Ja, Itaria! Even the Allies signed it! Now move it! You need to bring the papers to _____ too, she needs to sign them as well! – Feli was dragged by his shirt collar by the two men, leaving you with a dumbfounded face, slowly thinking over what you have heard.
A Peace Treaty...between the Axis and the more day of my life, I guess...
-Veee! _______! Here! – Feliciano burst into the hospital room, handing you the papers and a pen quickly. You looked up at him. His eyes were shining like never before.
-End of war, _______! Isn't that great?! – He exclaimed, throwing his arms in the air.

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

You smiled at the bubbly Italian.
You felt his previous life, his previous nature, happiness, LIFE, it all flowing back into his body, just as the sun rose from the horizon, sending waves of warm sunrays into the room by the slightly open window.
You heard gunshots a few hours back.
Now there was nothing.
You looked out the window and gasped, squealing like a fangirl over what you saw.
Groups of birds flew across the now calm sky, singing and bringing the nature back with them. ((A/N: If you don't know what I mean – Birds used to escape from the battle front, far away. And if they came back, they had to be EXTREMELY sure that the area was peaceful.))
You signed the papers, tears of spilling onto the paper.

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

-Ti amo, ______ - Feli kissed your lips gently for a while, then withdrew back and smiled lovingly at you.
-Ti amo tanto, Feli.
Where did I get this idea?! :icondepressedplz:
I mean, WTF is this?!
I have nothing against Italy. In fact, I love Feli! But the song...This is a SongFic.
The song is called "White Flag" by Dido. It's quite old.
I just thought the song matched Feli. *le shrug*
This is KIND OF sad, but no-one dies. (luckily)
So, I hope you enjoy...

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Hetalia or the picture.
I do own the plot though!
