Rivals: Part 2
"nngh." I try to sit up but, I get this searing pain in my back and shoulder.
"ow!!!" Why does this hurt so much?
"Might not wanna do that Eyebrows." I know that voice, it's unmistakable. How could I forget the voice of the girl I love?
"(Country Name)?" I try to turn around to see her face but, it hurts too much. I hear footsteps near me.
"I told you not to do that Eyebrows. Looks like you don't know how to listen do you?" _________ walked toward me, she leaned in until her face was inches from mine.
"Trying to tease me love?" I tried to sound cocky, but it sounded more like I'm in pain. I mean I am, but my sarcasm is always in good taste.
"Are you always this cocky?" She asked.
"Only on Tuesdays………….. and when beautiful girls are around." I replied. She looked shocked at my reaction, ________ is cute when she blushes like that.
"Oh shut-up and turn over." She retorted. What does she mean by that? Oh well when is doubt be sarcastic.
"Are you implying something love?"
"No, I'm telling you to turn over on your stomach so I can treat your wounds."
"With what? I highly doubt you have any proper medicine." I do highly doubt it with this much pain, it's probably too bad for healing and I'll be dead in the next week most likely.
"Tea." She said. How could she possibly treat me with tea?
"What was that love?"
"Tea. I self-medicate with tea." Is she insane? I like the taste, but since when does it have healing powers? Surely I would know.
"I self-medicate with tea." You reply. You don't think he understands the power of Feli's tea yet. But he will, in a few days he'll be fine and ready to work on your ship. That's one of the main reason you kidnapped him, to show him off to other pirates. Showing that you, a girl beat him.
"How do you expect me to believe it can heal these wounds!!! With how deep my cuts are I'll probably be dead soon!!!" You saw him tear up a bit at that part. You looked into his Emerald eyes, they were full of depression and sadness. You wondered how death could scare him that much. He looks as if he needs a hug. You changed your plans for him, he won't be set to work on your ship for a while.
"Don't worry Feli's tea can perform miracles. There's no need to be sad love." You walked over to him and held him as he cried. You waited patiently until he stopped crying to walk to the door.
"Feli!!! Bring me a pitcher of Tea, bandages, and a rag or two!!! And make it quick!!!" You yelled out the door at your Italian friend. Your first mate Elizabeta walked over with the tea, bandages, and two rags.
"Here you go _______. I hope he doesn't hurt too bad. He's really nice. Oh and Feliciano said he was too scared of Arthur to bring this to you personally." Elizabeta is the best first mate you could have.
"Thanks Liz," You used the nickname you gave her because you kept accidently calling her Elizabeth. "He was so worried about himself that he started crying. He thinks he's gonna die. It's a terrible sight." You made sure to inform her on his status. She feels as though she owes him from the time he saved Roderich's life. Arthur can be really kind but, he just grinds your gears sometimes.
"I know, I'll take this to him so he doesn't get any worse." You walked back into your cabin to him lying on your bed down on his stomach, like you told him to.
"Thanks for holding me while I cry _______." His eyes were still red.
"You're welcome Arthur. It was like watching Feli or Peter cry, you just can't stand it and you feel like you have to hold them or they'll break. It's terrible." You told him.
"How do you know Peter?" He asked curiously. You take the tray over to him and set it down on the table next to your bed. You start to soak one of the rags in the tea Feli made. Then you proceed to take off his bandages on his back just to realize he's shirtless. You see how toned his chest and abdomen are. You start blushing madly.
"Well, how do you know Peter?" He asked again this time more curious. You decide to give him an answer this time.
"Peter helps out Feliciano and Romano in the kitchen. He's like a little brother to everyone on this ship. Don't worry I know perfectly that he's your little brother and with that I should tell you that he is perfectly safe here on this ship. No one ever attacks except maybe you and France." You took the rag out of the pitcher of tea and slowly placed it on his wound. You put 2 more rags into the pitcher.
"OW!!! That hurts love. Are you sure this is a way of healing? I'm pretty sure this will just kill me fas- ohhhhh…… Now I know what you mean." His face changed from one of anger to one of bliss. 'He is kinda cute like this. Now only if he were like this all the time, that would be bliss.'
"See? I told you that Feli's tea can perform miracles. Now just relax and let it do its job."
BRITISH TIME SKIP!!!
It's been about a 3 days since he woke up on your ship after you took him captive. You have to admit he's a lot better than you thought. His wounds are healed and you're helping him get used to work again. He hasn't been able to do much because of his injuries. You're starting him out in the kitchen, not cooking of course you don't want to kill your whole crew, he's on clean up. Feliciano and Romano are afraid to go in the kitchen though, for some reason they're still afraid of him even though he's harmless now.
"You git!!! You're not supposed to cook!!!" You walk towards the kitchen afraid of what you're about to see. You get about 5 ft. from the door when the terrible smell hits your nose.
"Holy crap Eyebrows what are cooking!!!" You scream at him as you slowly approach the door. You open the door to the kitchen and see Peter standing bravely next to the stove trying to fix the problem.
"Eyebrows, what were you trying to cook?" You ask, afraid of the answer.
"Pasta……." He was blushing madly at the fact that he had screwed up something as simple as pasta.
"Arthur, why were you trying to cook?"
"I wanted to make you dinner." He said it so quietly you almost didn't hear him. You started blushing madly. He looks you in the eyes, you want to look away but you just can't. His eyes haven't looked this happy in a while. He turns around and starts to walk out the door, you start looking him up and down as he walked away. He notices you staring him down.
"Enjoy what you see love?" He says cockily.
"Are you always this cocky?" You ask him.
"Only on Tuesdays and when there are beautiful girls around." He replies with a smirk.
"You saying I'm beautiful?"
"No, it's Tuesday." He replies and walks out the door.
"What just went on Captain?" Peter asked you. You just realized he was still in the room.
"Nothing Peter, absolutely nothing." You replied with a sigh. You started to walk out of the kitchen and onto the deck only to see the whole ship in a panic.
"What the hell is going on out here?!?" You yell at the crew.
"Elizabeta has spotted the tomato bastardo's ship. He's probably come for your little lover!!!"
