A New Year Gift for ItalyGermany sighed as he ran his hand through his hair. He stared at the book Italy had gotten him in frustration. To have given him such a personal gift… The German bit his lip. And all he had done was bought him some pasta. Sure, Italy had seemed happy about that. But now Germany felt like he needed to give Italy something meaningful in return.
Time was running out. It was almost New Years, and if he was going to give him something, he would want it to be before the New Year.
He searched through his closet, trying to find some idea of what to give the Italian. Nothing seemed right. He was just about to give up, when something fell from the top shelf and smacked him on the head.
Scowling in pain, Germany picked up the worn push broom. “Vat is this supposed to be…?” He wondered out loud. He turned the item over in his hands carefully. Faint memories stirred in the back of his mind, but nothing substantial.

Regret (Chapter 25)
Germany winced as he felt the sun’s rays against his eyelids, slowly curling in on himself as everything around him suddenly felt wrong in every level. He wasn’t in a bed any longer, but on warm, soft… what was he even on? And he was wet? Well not entirely, his body was sure heated from the sun so some places felt like water had just been dried up.
