(Country name) was currently running for her young life. Everywhere she looked was disaster. Her beautiful country was falling apart; almost everything was lying in ruins. Being such a young country, she didn’t know what to do. The last of her soldiers were desperately trying to fight off the numerous enemy troops that invaded her home land.
Her boss had cowardly fled the dying country, leaving her and her people venerable for the current overthrow and destruction. She knew she had to think of something fast to save her people.
Why did this happen? What had she done wrong? She truly thought they cared for her.
(C/N) was on her way to the World Meeting looking forward to see her friends again. What she didn’t know was that the Axis and Allies were planning on taking the young country for themselves. All the other countries knew this so they didn’t show up for this meeting, not wanting to get involved.
You entered the meeting room with your usual friendly smile, but it quickly faded when the room was unsettlingly silent. You looked over that the other countries who had serious looks on their faces.
“What’s going on? Where is everybody?” you asked, getting nervous.
“Love, have a seat.” Britain said.
“Not until you tell me what’s going on.” you said worried.
There was a long silence and she was growing uneasy in the atmosphere you were usually comfortable in.
“How are we supposed to terr her this.” You noticed Japan whisper to Germany.
Germany sighed and stood up.
“Vell we’ve been discussing about your current growing status and have come to ze conclution that…vell…” he trailed off.
“Bottom line is that we all want you as our territory.” America admitted seriously, which scared you.
You didn’t know what to say. You didn’t want to be a territory that was controlled by another country. You were doing just fine on your own, and you wanted to remain a free country.
“What? No! Why do you want me?” you asked shocked.
“Your country has grown to be quite wealthy very quickly and could be useful -” China began but was cut off by you.
“Is that what this is about? Money?!” you were angry now.
“Please chérie, don’t be upset…” France said sympathetically.
“Yes, love, we don’t want to cause you any harm.” Britain said.
“Hai, we truly care about you, (C/N).” Japan said.
“No! If you really cared about me you wouldn’t put me through this!” you yelled and were about to storm out of the room when Russia grabbed your wrist.
“If you don’t choose one of us, we will invade your homeland da…” he said looking down at you.
By now you were terrified. You struggled your way out of Russia’s firm clutch and quickly ran out of the room.
“Germany, are we really going to invade (C/N)?” Italy asked a little startled by all the commotion.
“She’s just being stubborn. She has to understand that she won’t stand a chance, her military isn’t very strong.” Britain said, taking a sip of his tea.
“I don’t think I can go through with this. I mean she’s still really young and I don’t want to hurt her.” Italy said.
“Dude I don’t want to hurt her either, but we need her resources.” America said.
Italy sank back down in his seat, looking down.
“So it’s settled then. Everyone, prepare your military.” Germany stated.
You made it out of the building and collapsed on the ground, filled will shock and fear. You were panting heavily and began to cry.
How could they do this to you? They always treated you like a sister and a friend and were always there for you.
‘They were going to invade my country, all for their stupid profit!’ you thought.
Apparently that was all you meant to them, just another thing to take control and use for their benefit. You felt so betrayed, but you knew this was not the time to act like a kid. You had to grow up and deal with this, somehow.
You rubbed your nose and quickly headed to your country to warn your people of the hell that was waiting for them.
END OF FLASHBACK:
You shook your head of the painful memory; you had to focus. You looked around as if trying to look for hope itself. You looked at your poor soldiers trying to fight off the German, British, and American troops. You knew it would be a matter of time when they were all massacred.
You ran up to your soldiers’ leader.
“Tell them to retreat, now.” You ordered.
“Are you sure, (C/N)?” the Commander asked.
“Yes, get them out of here, you too. Find any citizens left behind and help them find safety.” You said.
“What about you?” he asked, concerned.
“This country is dying…I’m sorry I failed you.” you said looking down.
The commander nodded and placed his hand on your shoulder.
“It’s been an honor to serve you, (C/N), goodbye.”
He ran off to tell the soldiers of your order and they all began to run off into the ruined city, helping any citizens out of the fallen country.
You were alone; standing in once was the fresh green grass of your beautiful land, now was reduced to dust and death. As your country continued to perish you felt yourself dying inside. You quickly felt weak and tired. You collapsed on the dry dirt and looked up at the sky. You knew what was happening; your country was dying and so were you.
You felt your body becoming drained of life; you closed your eyes as you let out your final breath.
“Where can she be?” Britain said desperately.
“I don’t know, she has to be here somewhere, aru.” China said.
“Dudes we have to find her soon. This was a mistake!” America said.
“Oui I’m so worried about her, look what we did to her land.” France said.
“(C/N)! (C/N)! Where are you, belle?!” Italy franticly shouted for you.
“Italy I’m sure she’s…” Germany began but was cut off by seeing something in the distance.
They all looked in the same direction and gasped in shock.
“(C/N)! No!” Italy shouted, running over and picked up your lifeless body in his arms and cried into your neck.
The rest of the countries arrived and were heartbroken at the sight. Japan hesitantly took your cold hand and desperately waited for a pulse. He sighed and looked to the other countries and shook his head.
“OH GOD NO!!” Britain sank to his knees by your body; taking your hand and holding it in his, gently embracing it.
Italy continued to rock your body in his arms, while Germany had his face buried in his hands. America cried into Frances shoulder, France hugged the poor American while crying himself. Japan couldn’t bear to see you like this anymore and turned away and hugged a grieve stricken China. Russia looked down and shut his eyes, a tear falling from his closed eyes.
“What have we done…?” Germany sighed.
“No, no…she doesn’t deserve to die like this, god I’m so sorry, (C/N)…” Britain cried into your dead hand.
100 YEARS LATER:
The Axis and Allies joined up once again to head to the land that was once (C/N) to pay their respects. They have been doing this every year for the past 100 years so they will never forget (C/N), and the tragedy they caused. When they arrived though, they were shocked by the sight before them.
“Oh my, it that…” China began.
“Yes it is!”
They looked over at once was dead and dry dirt, was now freshly grown baby grass. Little baby trees and plants were beginning to flourish.
“It’s beautifur…” Japan said.
“Everyone, what is that over there.” Russia said pointing in the distance.
They looked where he was point and small child sitting in the grass playing with a bunny.
“Doesn’t that look like…?” America began.
“Yes it does.” Britain said.
They slowly approached the small girl, not wanting to scare her. She looked up at the countries and smiled sweetly while holding the bunny.
“Hi” she squeaked.
“Ciao bella my name is Italy” Italy said crouching down next to the girl.
“Hi” she repeated.
They couldn’t help but chuckle how adorable she was.
“Hello poppet, what are you doing out here alone?” Britain said, sitting next to the child.
“I’ve been trying to find out why I’m here.” she said, petting the bunny.
“Chérie! You must be a new country, little one.” France squealed.
She smiled and nodded.
“She must be related to (C/N).” Japan said.
“Yes, I agree. The resemblance is astounding, aru.” China said.
“Totally dude! I wanna meet the little dudette!” America said, sitting down next to the girl.
“So you have a name little dudette?” America asked the girl.
“I’m, (C/N).” the small girl uttered, making the countries gasp.
“Is that even possible? Can she really be, (C/N)?” France asked.
“I’ve heard about this happening before, but it’s very rare.” Japan said.
“It must be a miracle, da?”
As the other countries were talking with the new country, Germany and Japan continued to watch.
“We have to be careful we will not make the same mistake again, or she would be gone forever.” Germany said to Japan.
“Hai, just like what Russia said, this is trury a miracle.” Japan said.
Italy picked up the small girl and cradled her in his arms, and she quickly fell asleep.
“The poor little thing must be tired.” France said.
“She is so cute, aru.” China said.
Italy held the little nation more protectively and kissed her forehead.
“Don’t worry, belle, we will never hurt you ever again. We promise to protect you my little belle.”
