"Hey Gilbert?" You asked as you quietly pushed open his bedroom door.
You saw his peaceful sleeping figure, his silver toned hair messed up from tossing and turning the previous night, Gilbird noticed your presence and chirped his way over to you, snuggling in the crook of your neck.
"Hello there Gilbird, how are you?" You giggled, as the bird chirped his pleasant tune. "Gilbert." You quietly said approaching the sleeping albino. "Gilbert!" You yelled into his ear jolting him awake.
"____! Vhy vould you disturb mein awesome dream!" He yelled angrily as you fell to the floor laughing. "Ist's not funny!"
"Yes it is." You laughed. "My apologies your royal awesomeness."
"That's better." He smiled proudly.
"Hey I got you to smile!" You pointed out getting off the floor and sitting on the edge of Gilbert's bed.
"Yeah, I guess you did." He stated solemnly.
"How are you feeling?" You asked sadly looking into Gilbert's red ruby eyes.
"Vell, as usual awesome! But ist feel that somezing is missing." Gilbert stated scratching the back of his head.
"Hey, we may be but mere questions to this world, with maybe no answer to be heard. But you and I are micronations we can still be awesome." You smiled placing a hand on Gilbert's toned arm.
"I am still more awesome." He stated sticking out his tongue. "But ist still hurts knowing I am not a nation anymore."
"No mater what I say you won't listen anyway, and say ____ you don't know me, you'd never understand." You argued.
"That's not true! I vould say ____, you don't know the avsome me!" He declared.
"Right, because it's not like I'm a micronation that is barely recognized." You mumbled under your breath.
"Vhat vas that Frau?" Gilbert asked sitting up more on his bed revealing his naked toned chest.
"Nothing, you need to worry about Gilby." You cooed ruffling his hair, trying to hide the pang of sadness.
"I am not a boy! I am an awesome man!" Gilbert stated, you were just staring off into space, Gilbird flew from the floor and perched on Gilbert's shoulders. "_____, Frau. Snap out of ist!" Gilbert said snapping his finger in front of my face.
"What?" You asked blinking in confusion. "Oh, sorry Gilbert I was just thinking."
"About vhat? The awesome me." He winked.
"Only in your dreams." You laughed. "No, I was just thinking about, well, I just want a moment that's real, maybe touch things I don't feel." You laughed as a few tears fell down your eyes.
"I just want to feel like I belong, but the other countries don't make me feel like I belong. Gilbert sometimes you don't either." You cried saying the last part quieter.
All Gilbert did was envelope you in his strong hold, as he ran his finger through your hair. You rested your head on his toned chest as Gilbird jumped off Gilbert's shoulder and onto your head nuzzling into your locks.
"Vell you do belong Frau, you and the awesome me both belong." He smiled.
I vant to tell you vho I truly am ____, I put on this avsome facade for a reason Gilbert said to himself as he hugged you closer.
"I'm just afraid." You whispered into his chest.
"Vell vatever ist is, I vill protect you! For I am awesome, and awesome people are not afraid!" Gilbert laughed.
"Course the ever so awesome Prussia." You laughed.
"You and I may not be visible on the map, but ve are still here." He smiled touching your heart with his hand. "Ve are in each other's hearts, right Frau?"
"Definitely." You stated placing your hand on top of his, for awhile you stared into each other's eyes, just smiling contently. "Uh, Francis and Ivan both want to um, take me over."
"Vhat!" Gilbert said outraged.
"I over heard them talking about it at the last meeting, they think they could both use the military that I have. They just need to decide which one gets it, I just don't want to be apart of either of their nations. I want to be my own." You explained getting out of Gilbert's hold.
"Frau," Gilbert softly said.
"They would change me, no matter who took my nation over. They would change me, they've always wanted me to change. Yet they're the ones that stay the same for centuries. Maybe I should be happy that countries are finally seeing me as something worthy even though I am small." You stated looking down at your lap.
"Fight back." Gilbert stated.
"I would, my military may be good but they wouldn't last a chance against either of the nations. I just keep dreaming for the day I can become powerful and properly defend my country, I stay awake while the rest of the world is sleeping. Dreaming, that's all I ever do is dream." You confessed, you felt a hand on your cheek you looked up to meet ruby eyes.
"Frau, I will do vatever I must to protect you." Gilbert said wiping a stray tear away. "They vill cower vith fear at mein avsomeness."
"So full of yourself." You laughed playfully pushing Gilbert's shoulder.
"Frau, all you ever vanted, I can be. Hell I vill be." Gilbert stated before smashing his lips to yours, you smiled as you kissed his 'awesome lips' as he would call them.
"Thanks Gilbert." You smiled. "By the way Gilbert, love you and all but do you always sleep commando?" You asked giggling.
"Vhy yes, like the sight?" He winked.
"Again in your dreams, now put pants or something on to cover up your awesome five meters." You mocked.
"You know you love my five meters, and don't mock mein avsome accent!" He smirked.
"Gilbert don't worry, I'm still here. Or I will be after you've changed!" You declared as you left the room shutting the door behind you.
"She so likes the view Gilbird." Gilbert smiled looking at his little yellow buddy who now flew around his head. "You'll always be here Frau." Gilbert stated placing a hand on his heart.
