Prussia X Reader

Somebody That I Used To Know.

Flashback – Teutonic Knights.

"Gilly?" The small albino boy's head popped up at the sound of your voice.

"Yes (NAME)?" He answered nodding for you to continue.

"Will we be together always?"

"Of course (NAME)! You're the only one as awesome as me! On the Teutonic Knights I swear to be with you always!" You quickly hugged Gilbert pushing him into the soft green grass of the meadow.

"I promise the same. Thank you Gilbert, always." You whispered to him, even though there was not a moving soul for miles it was something that was meant for his ears only.


Your helper tightened the silver lace corset that encased your chest. The pressure was suffocating, like a prison of pure fabric that you couldn't escape from. Your wedding was something you couldn't wait for, you had planned everything but now your nerves were
making it feel so wrong.

Flashback – End of Prussia – Third Person.

"(NAME)!" Desperation was thick in his voice "(NAME) WHERE ARE YOU? ANSWER ME!" The recent bombings had made the house unstable and now it had collapsed. Gilbert's hands clenched tightly around a small box as he stumbled through the rubble of the house "(NAME), come on where are you!" He scrambled over the remaining debris to find (NAME) with her left leg caught under part of the old house wall. Her face twisted in pain trying hard not to black out. Tears had formed streams down her dirt covered face. Gilbert ran to her side and gently embraced her, shielding her body with his.  

"G-Gilbert" Her words broken by waves of tears flowing down her face. Gilbert's strong arms pushed the debris trapping her obliviously broken leg. He lifted her up bridal-style "Gilbert where can we go? The Allies can find you anywhere." Her voice was getting
quieter with every word she spoke.

"I know darling, but my part in this war is over. Prussia has been lost; I've let all my people down." (NAME) was going to tell him that he was wrong but was cut off. "I can't do anything anymore, if we can get to the edge of Germany that you will be safe. I did promise to be with you always didn't I?" He leant down and kissed her forehead "please open the box, Ich liebe dich (NAME), please marry me." He whispered softly in her ear. (NAME) opened the small box to find a glistening square cut diamond on a silver band. She nodded enthusiastically, not being able to speak. She notice a fine engraving on the metal but finally passed out from the pain before she could ask what it said.


The thick heavy veil was passed over your head, a small emerald crown held it in place. The emeralds that adorned it were beautiful but their shine was dull compared to the ring hanging from a chain around your neck. Its beauty had lasted through out time.

Flashback – weeks after last one – Gilbert's POV

"Arthur, I need your help" My voice was only a whisper, (NAME) was asleep and this was the only chance I had.

"Beilschmidt you wanker what are you calling me for! We're still at war!" Arthur's voice was loud through the speaker.

"Shut it limey, I'm not in the war and you know it, so shut up." Gilbert could imagine the smirk on Arthur's face right at this moment. "I need your help"

"Why?" His voice made the question feel demanding.

"Because I know you'll keep her safe." Gilberts hand ran through (Name)'s (length) (colour) hair. "Please Arthur; please do this for me before I dissolve."

"Ok Gilbert" Arthur's voice had changed from a mocking tone to one of sadness, maybe the realisation that Gilbert was dyeing along with Prussia had struck him.

"We're in France; ask Francis where he should be able to tell".


"Do you Arthur Kirkland take (Name) (Last Name) as your wife?"

"I do"

"And do you (Name) (Last Name) take Arthur Kirkland as your husband?"

"I do"

"Well then I know pronounce you husband and wife."

Timeskip – Reception.

You look at the room you sat in; it was decorated in white a green fabric and everyone was dancing in a space made in the middle of the room. Feliciano had ever convinced Romano to come and dance. You looked to the gardens visible from the open doors; the green grass and red roses glowing in the moonlight. It just looked peaceful. You turned to your new husband next to you; he was trying to keep his very energetic best man under control.

"I'm just going for a walk honey. Ok?"

"OK, are you alright?

"I'm fine Arthur, just need some fresh air that's all" His facial expressions showed that he still wasn't sure. "I'm fine Arthur! I'll be back in fifteen minutes, if I'm not back by then, you can come looking for me ok?"

"Ok." You stood from your set at the head table and walked towards the open doors where
Ludwig now stood staring into the gardens.

"Are you ok Ludwig?" You seemed to catch mine off guard which what normally not an easy task. As he turned to you the slight shock was removed from his face.

"Ja, fine (Name)" Then Feliciano came and dragged Ludwig from you back to the centre of the room.


The garden amazed you, the crimson red of the roses and the green of the grass contrasted with each other in the moonlight

You found your way to the old stone statue surrounded by a small pond.  The statue was an angel, her hands covering her face as she wept. You rounded the statue and froze in your steps. You gained enough courage to say these few words; "You promised to stay with me always."

The man with platinum white hair turned to face you, his eyes bloodshot from obvious crying.

"No one came keep their promises forever (Name)" You felt betrayed and angry, you had trusted him for centuries, ever since you were children. He stood up slowly and walked towards you. When he came within striking range, you slapped him hard across the face.

"Why. Why bastard?!"

"If you were with me when Ludwig fell then Ivan would of taken you – so I made sure it was me, not you" He cupped the side of your face, his own starting to swell "so that you were safe." You pulled away from the warmth of his hand  and turn your back to him, a silver tear running down your face. His engagement ring to you had worked its way from under you shirt and you knew Gilbert had seen it. "Did you ever find out what the engraving meant?" Your response was a quick shake of your head "Das Letzle Stück Von Preußen. Mein Herz. It means; The Last Piece of Prussia, My Heart."

"I'm sorry Gilbert but none of that matters anymore." You voice was weak at the start but as you continued it only got stronger.

"Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad it was over

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Part of me believing it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now you're just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know

"Sorry Gilbert" Without any more of a conversation you walked away from him, leaving him by the angel that wept with him. You could only imagine the that shock, grief and sadness on his face. You made your way back to the reception hall, Arthur standing by the door way.

"I was just coming-" He stopped when his eyes saw the ring around your neck, his hands touched it gently "what's this?"

Your hand grabbed onto it, pulling to down making the clip at the back release. "It belonged to someone that I used to know" Your voice held no expression at all. You slowly walked over to Ludwig who now was sat down at one of the tables, you place the ring and chain in his hand. He looked up to meet your eyes.

"For someone that I used to know."
~Das Ende~
