We were at the wedding, when all of a sudden, I felt something pull me inside this dark doorway. We all fell to the ground. “Are you alright?” Canada whispered, helping me up.
“Yeah.” I said quietly. Something told me that I shouldn’t be loud. Zara led us over to a door, and told us to push on it. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, she found a chainsaw and used that to break down the door instead. I gasped at the sight that lay before me. 2p Canada, 2p America, 2p France, 2p England, and 2p Russia were all gathered around the room, as well as Cole and Derick, those assholes. In the middle was Julie, who had somehow managed to get her gag off and her blindfold as well. “Hi, miss me?” Zara asked and smiled. “Thank you for ruining my wedding day b.t. dubbs, that was a great gift!” she added sarcastically.
Derick smiled a slightly insane-looking smirk and said, “Yeah, we were actually thinking about pulling you instead, but since Julie here was constantly guarding you, and no one was guarding her, we decided to take her instead. GO NOW!” All of the 2p’s ambushed us. Zara ran over and freed Julie with her chainsaw, then kicked the chair away. Just then 2p Canada came running up to me, his fist in the air. I gasped, trying to defend myself as best as I could. But as he swung, Matthew jumped from out of nowhere and took the blow instead of me. He crumpled to the ground. “Matthew!” I screamed, stooping down next to him. He weakly got to his knees. “Are you alright?” I asked, one step away from panicking.
“I-I’m fine…” he said quietly. He was holding his cheek, and looked like he was in pain. I wrapped my arms around his waist and helped him get on his feet.
“Damn…” 2p Canada said, glaring at Matthew and I. He seemed to realize that he couldn’t hurt me without hurting Matthew first. “Get out of the way, you little dumbass!” He yelled at Matthew.
“Uh-uh…” Matthew said, shaking his head. I continued to cling to him, both scared and protective at the same time. It’s a weird feeling.
“C’mon, I gotta job to do! Just get out of my way so I can beat up this little bitch!” 2p Canada yelled. All of a sudden, Matthew lunged at him in a fit of rage.
“Don’t you dare lay a finger on her or I’ll kill you!” he shouted, right in 2p Canada’s face. “And if you ever call her anything like that ever again, I’ll shove that cigarette right up your ass!” Even I was surprised. Matthew has never even raised his voice before. But I was secretly proud, and happy that Matthew stood up for me. 2p Canada seemed shocked and bewildered at his outburst.
“Dammit, damn you all.” he muttered, giving Matthew a good shove and walking away. Matthew fell right into me, and I helped him up. There was already a bruise on his face. I looked at him in the eyes, not able to express how grateful I was. So I just kissed him. 2p Canada glanced back at us and rolled his eyes. “Damn pansies.” I saw everyone running out of the room, so I grabbed Matthew and followed. We ran down the corridors, trying to find an exit. We eventually came to a door that resembled one from a church. I pushed through it, dragging Matthew behind me. We ended up right where we had been before all of this craziness started. Matthew and I walked out and I started heading towards my house. “Come with me.” I said, and Matthew nodded, following. He’s oddly quiet again. I wrapped my arms around his waist as we walked. I don't care if it makes walking in a straight line more difficult, I want to be near him. He placed an arm around my shoulder, and we stayed that way until we came to my house. I unlocked the door, and immediately Aya came running up to me.
“How was the wedding, ane-chan?” How can I answer this? Well, honesty is the best policy, I guess.
“It was… interesting. We found Julie. She was kidnapped by Cole, Derick, and the 2p’s.” Aya gasped.
“Wow, ane-chan, you had an adventure.”
“Yeah. Matthew isn’t feeling too great, though.” Aya looked at Matthew’s bruise and her eyes widened a little.
“Oh, Canada-san got into a fight.” Matthew looked determinedly at Aya.
“No one is ever going to hurt Lyllianne on my watch.” he said. I got him inside and sat him on the couch. Once I got him an ice pack, I sat and cuddled with him. Aya joined us as well, and I petted her affectionately. We stayed like that for the rest of the day. Occasionally I would see Kumajirou walk past, eating food from my fridge. Stupid bear thinks can empty my shelves anytime he wants.
