Rivals: Part 8
You woke up the next morning to an extra noisy ship. Are they still drunk? You look over and there is Arthur, with his arms around you. You wiggle out of his iron grip and get up to go get dressed. You wore the same thing as yesterday, except instead of your hat, you wore a red bandanna pulling your bangs out of your face. You decided not to wear your coat seems how you would be heading somewhere warm. You turn around and walk back to Arthur and whisper in his ear.
"Arthur, Alfred got Rory pregnant. They're going to be married." (I used my OC again, she's Northern Ireland and England's older sister. He doesn't like her being with America.) He shot straight up, the same way Alfred does, and yelled out.
"You bloody wanker!!!" He stood up and walked for the door. "You better not have gotten my sister pregnant!!!" You grabbed his wrist to catch his attention. He looked back at you and realized it wasn't true.
"Is that really how you wake people up here? Extremely rudely?" He asks grumpy, from the rude way he was woken up.
"Yes, because that's the only way to wake someone up on this ship. Now go get dressed, you can't get any work done in just your pants." You giggled as you looked at him only in his undies.
"Why is this" He strikes a pose. "Distracting?" You just had to laugh at him.
"Yes, now go get dressed or I might just have to keep you inside all day while everyone else enjoys the tropical air."
"Okay, only because Captain Prissy Pants said so." He said the grumpiness gone from his voice, only to be replaced with cockiness. You walk outside onto the main deck to see twice the crew you had before. You look up at the wheel not to see Al, but Toni. You walk up to the wheel and stand next to him.
"Why the hell are you and your crew on my ship?"
"My ship was blown to pieces by Belarus, so I decided to bring my crew and myself to help you on your search for Belarus, so you can rescue Gil."
"Fine. But, leave Eyebrows alone, no flirting with my cook, either of them, no taking over anyone's job, give Alfred back the wheel, I am your Captain so you obey my every word, and you report to me or Liz for your chores for the day." You told him, he backed away from the wheel and Al took his place back there. You left the area and went to go tell Liz to add all of his crew to the chore list. Then you head back to your cabin to see that Arthur had accidentally fallen back asleep after getting dressed. You check his forehead to see if he's sick. He's not, which is good, he must be tired from last night. (A.N. Do I really to explain? I'm sure you've already thought of it.) You decide to give him a break for the day. I mean it's been a week since you captured him. You go ahead and play a song or two on the violin for your sleeping lover. He woke up right in the middle of Italy's song that he taught you, "Marukaite Chikyuu"
"Nice song love." He says at he sits up.
"Thanks, Italy taught me the lyrics and I made up violin music for it." You replied.
"How long was I out?" He asked hoping he wasn't out too long.
"About ten minutes. I came in worried that you had caught a cold from sleeping in just your pants." You filled him in on what you walked in on when you left the cabin.
"Well, looks like I'll have to step up my guard over my lady."
"Oh? So apparently I can't protect myself? I mean I am the most feared pirates now that I've beaten you." You reply cockily.
"No, no you cannot. I refuse to let you outta my sight." And with that, he wraps arm around your waist. He snuck up on you for the third time. You don't understand how he keeps doing that.
"Oh really. Then you don't understand the power of me being a girl." You looked at him, and the expression on his face showed amusement. You decided to use your superpower. "Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!" You screamed as loud your lungs would allow you.
Arthur still didn't let go, but he would in a second when Ludwig or Liz or someone else came to your aid. The second you stopped screaming Ludwig and Feli came through the door.
"Are you okay ______?" Ludwig looked at Arthur's arm around your waist, then back up to you. "Did I walk in on something?"
"No, you did not Ludwig. Arthur refused to let me out of his sight because, he feels jealous now that Toni is here on the ship." You explained, Ludwig came over to you and picked you up out of Arthur's grasp. He turned around and started for the door.
"Laters Eyebrows!!!" And with that Ludwig closed the door behind him. He walked up to the wheel and set you down. "Thanks Germany, I didn't want to have to press my sword against his throat again. Last time I did, I ended up with a bruised tailbone."
"How did you bruise your tailbone?" He asked.
"He was carrying me and wouldn't put me down so when I put my cutlass up against his throat, he dropped me to mess with my head." You explained.
"Oh, okay then. You're welcome. If you fall into any awkward situations, just scream like that and I'll come and get you." He said, Germany can be really nice like that. He protects people a lot around here, most of the time it's Italy though.
"Thanks Ludwig, I'll remember that whenever Francis hits on me now."
"No problem ______." Ludwig walked away back to his post. (A.N. Now that I think about it, Germany is sort of your big brother too. Because he's Prussia's brother.)
"Hey Captain ______!!! I think we spot another ship!!!" Liz yelled at you from the crow's nest. You climb there and look through the spyglass. You definitely saw a ship, but not a good one. It had the Russian flag, which meant Ivan was coming your way.
"Prepare for a possible attack!!! Don't make the tiniest mistake!!! Mother Russia is coming our way!!!" You yelled at your crew, Feli immediately started searching for one of his white flags that you confiscated. "Feliciano!!! Will you stop that!!! If we look scared he'll use that as an advantage!!!"
"Ello love, I think you should let me handle this one." He snuck up on you for the fourth time in the past three days. He wraps his arm around your waist.
"No, Ivan doesn't like you, he and I get along pretty well." You tell him sliding out of his grip.
"Fine. But, I'm not hiding this time." He replies as you both head down from the crow's nest. You walk over to the railing where both ships are already in perfect alignment. You and Ivan stood across from each other.
