It had been seven years and ____ was now seventeen.  She was on her way home.  She was beyond excited to get to see her parents and her childhood friend, Feliciano.  She could barley contain her excitement as the Vargas villa came into view.

"We're almost home." Alaric smiled at the bouncing woman who sat across from him.  He couldn't help but remember the last time he saw her.  It was a much sadder day, they were headed in the opposite direction, now he was happy to be bringing her home.  As promised, she had completed her studies earlier than any one at the school, a whole two years early!  She had surpassed Julius's expectations of her and he knew he had made the right decision in making her the book keeper's apprentice.

Roberto Dioli wasn't too thrilled to have a woman apprentice, but Julius told him it was either that, or he was to be let go and she would take over for him completely.  Not wanting to loose his job, Roberto agreed.

"We are almost to your parent's house.  Mr. Vargas wants you to enjoy the rest of the day with them, he gave them the day off, but tomorrow, I will come and get you so that you can meet with Mr. Vargas and Mr. Dioli."

"Thank you Uncle Alaric and thank you for allowing me to continue to call you uncle.  I know we're not related by blood."

"It's all right, my dear.  I don't mind at all." He continued to smile at her.  He was pleased with how well she was brought up, her manners were on par with any royal.  The school had done as promised.

"Do you think Mr. Vargas will still let me call him nonno, or should I call him Mr. Vargas?" ____ asked, fidgeting with her dress front.

Alaric couldn't help but smirk as he thought of a little trick to play on his childhood friend.

"There is no doubt in my mind that he will want you to call him nonno, but, since it's been so long, call him Mr. Vargas and greet him like the school taught you.  It will be a fun little prank to play on him." Alaric chuckled.

"Uncle Alaric, I didn't know you could be like this." She chuckled along with him.

"Only with Julius, my dear.  It will break his heart to hear you call him Mr. Vargas, but don't worry, we won't let the game go on too long."

"All right." She smiled, then as a thought crossed her mind, her expression changed to one of worry.

"What about Lovino?  Will he be there when I meet with nonno?"

Alaric saw her concern and understood why it was there.

"Don't worry, he has grown up a lot since you have been gone but is still quick to anger as he always was, however he knows how to control his anger much better.  Feliciano, on the other hand, is still just as care free as the day you last saw him."

"I can't wait to see Feli!  I have missed him most of all.  Did you know he wrote to me almost everyday?  I felt bad that I wasn't able to write back more often, but with all the work I was doing, I was trying to hurry home like everyone wanted."

"He understood, he was just thrilled when you did have the chance to write back.  He would run through the house, sharing your letter with everyone." Alaric smiled at the memory.

____ was going to say something, but the carriage stopped and Alaric spoke again.

"Looks like we have made it to your house.  Why don't you go say hello and I will help unload your things."

"Thank you Uncle Alaric!  You're the best!" She said, giving the older man the tightest hug she could.

"My, how strong you are now, I remember when you could barely get your arms around my waist and now look at you.  All right, you better get inside, I know your parents are anxious to see you." He said, ushering her out of the carriage.

The carriage driver helped her out and she ran into the house.

"Mama!  Papa!  I'm home!" She yelled as she ran into the kitchen, finding them sitting around the table.

"____!  By the heavens!  Look how you've grown!!  I can't believe you're my same little girl." (m/n) cried as she got up and ran to embrace her daughter.

Not knowing what to say, (f/n) ran and embraced her as well.  Alaric walked in on the happiest reunion he could have ever imagined to see.  The three of them were sitting on the floor hugging and crying.  He quietly set the young girl's trunks down and tried to leave, but was stopped by (f/n).

"Mr. Beilschmidt, thank you so much for bringing her home.  Would you like to stay for dinner?  We would be honored to have you."

"No, I must go and report to Mr. Vargas, but thank you for the offer, it is very kind of you." He said with a bow, then exited the home and headed back up to the Vargas house.

The families evening together couldn't have gone better for them.  They stayed up well into the night catching up.

Alaric was glad he got to see ___ reunited with her family, now he had the pleasure of letting Julius know that she had returned safely.  He was wondering what the young Vargas boys would say when they found out she was home.

It didn't take him long to get to Julius's office.  Once there, he knocked.

"Come in." He heard the muffled voice from the other side.

"Hello, sir." Alaric said as he entered the room.

"Ah, Alaric, you're back.  How was the trip, is ____ home safely?" He asked, smiling at his old friend.

"It was very long.  I'm glad to be back, I'm sure ___ is happier to back than I am, though.  Her parents were over joyed when they saw her."

"Lots of happy tears, then?"

"Yes.  I would't be surprised if they were still hugging and crying." 

"Well, how is she?  Just as lovely as I thought she'd be?" Julius asked a little too eagerly.

"Even lovelier sir." Alaric smiled, shaking his head.  It still surprised him how lecherous Julius was becoming in his old age.

"I knew it.  What time is she coming tomorrow?" He smiled as he stood up and looked out the window.

"I will be sending for her in the morning, sir.  She's very excited to come and see you tomorrow."

"Well, then, we must prepare a welcome home feast for tomorrow night!  Will you notify the kitchen staff to prepare a feast."

"Yes, sir.  So, have you told the boys she's home yet?" Alaric asked.

"No, I wanted little Feli to be surprised.  He's been waiting so long for her to return."

"And Lovino?"

Julius couldn't help but let out a heavy sigh at the mention of his eldest grandson.

"I haven't told him yet.  Honestly, I'm not quite sure how I'm going to tell him."

"Tell me what, nonno?" Lovino asked as he walked into his grandfather's office.

"That we are having a special guest tomorrow and to celebrate, we're having a feast!" He beamed as his grandson stood next to him.

Lovino couldn't help but smile at his grandfather.

"Who is it?"

"It's a surprise!"

"Come on, nonno, just a hint?" Lovino pleaded.

"Nope, not a word out of me and that goes double for you, Alaric.  Not a single hint on who our beautiful guest will be!"

"So it's a woman?" Lovino eyed his grandfather suspiciously.

"I said no such thing!"

"You called out guest beautiful, you only use that to describe women.  Are you finally remarrying?" Lovino was doing his best to keep a poker face, but against his grandfather, he knew it was useless.

"You will just have to wait and see.  Now, come with me, Alaric, we must inform the kitchen staff about tomorrow's feast." Julius said as he grabbed his friends arm and pulled him out of the room.

Lovino tried to think of who the guest could possibly be, but he was at a loss.  His grandfather had so many women he fancied, Lovino wasn't quite sure which one could have caught his eye.

He chuckled to himself, shaking his head.  He would never understand his grandfather's love of women.  As far as Lovino was concerned, they were an unnecessary distraction.  Then, a thought occurred to Lovino, what if his grandfather was trying to set him up with a woman, and this feast was a way to trick Lovino into meeting her.  Again, Lovino shook his head, his grandfather would much rather keep the woman for himself than offer her to Lovino as a possible bride.

Lovino sat at his desk and began to go over some of the paper work and go over some of the orders for the winery.

The following morning had come all to soon for the ____ family.  Just like the night ____ had left, they all slept in the same bed.  (m/n) was the first to get up, followed closely by ____.  Together they made breakafast.

"Oh, mama, you have no idea how much I have missed your cooking!  They didn't have anything this good at the school." ___ said as she watched her mother cook.

"That's because no one can cook as well as your mother.  I believe she is the best cook in all the lands!" (f/n) boasted at his wife's cooking skills.

"Oh, honey, stop!  I'm not that good!" (m/n) blushed.

"I think papa's right mama.  You really are the best cook."

"Thank you dear." she said, setting the food on the table.

"So, ____ what time are is Mr. Beilschmidt coming to get you?" (f/n) asked.

"I don't know, but I figure if he hasn't come by the time I've finished breakfast, I would start walking there.  I'm kind of anxious to see Feliciano."  ___ smiled as she took the first bite of her breakfast.

"That boy will be so happy to see you.  Did you know that every time he got a letter from you, he would run around the whole place sharing it with everyone.  He even read the letters you would send to us and help us write back to you." (m/n) said.

"I thought that's what was happening.  I really can't wait to see him!"

"He has turned out to be such a kind young man.  He's even taken to helping out in the kitchen from time to time.  I've never seen a boy who loves to cook more than he does." (m/n) chuckled as she finally sat down at the table.

"Well, then I guess you'd better hurry and eat so you can go see him." (f/n) said as he took his first bite.

"Right." ___ smiled as she started eating a little faster.  She really was anxious to see her friend.  She was curious how much different he looked.

Once she had finished her breakfast, she tried to help with clean up but her mother just ushered her out of the house and told her to head up to the Vargas manor.  There would be plenty of messes for her to help clean up now that she was home.

She didn't think the walk to the Vargas house would take so long, but she didn't mind, it just meant she got to walk through the village and see if anything had changed.  Just as she had thought, nothing had changed,  the village was just as she had remembered.  She enjoyed her walk up to the house.

When she finally arrived at the manor, she had to walk by the grape fields to get up to the manor.  She couldn't help by smile as she walked through them, remembering all the fun she and Feliciano had as they played in them.  Her pace quickened with the memories, wanting to hurry and see her friend.

It didn't take her long to get the house, as she walked up the path leading to the front door, she saw a young man walking towards her, he was looking off to the left, so he hadn't seen her.  This was her chance to surprise him.

"FELICIANO!" She yelled as she ran towards him, tackling him in a bone crushing hug when he looked in her direction.

"I've missed you so much!" She smiled as she continued her greeting by placing a kiss on each cheek.  The young man blushing profusely at her greeting.

"Oh my goodness!  Look at how much taller than me you are now!  I always thought we'd be the same height, I'm glad to see I was wrong.  Oh my goodness!  I have so much that I want to tell you!  There was so much I didn't get to write you about, I'm sorry about that, by the way.  I was always so busy with my studies, I'm lucky I got to write you as often as I did!  But that's beside the point, I want to know how you are!" She smiled, hugging him again.

The young man wasn't quite sure what to do, it took him a few minutes to realize what was even happening.  She had come out of no where and just thrown herself at him and then started talking not even giving him a chance to say anything.

"What's the matter Feliciano?  Cat got your tongue." She smirked.  She didn't understand why he wasn't answering her.

"Um, welcome back?" He asked, not sure what she was expecting from him.

He was surprised when she laughed at him.

"Goodness, maybe nonno shouldn't have sent me away.  Obviously not having me around, turned you into a very shy boy." She chuckled, roughing up his hair.

"Ah, Lovino, there you are.  We need to go over some of the preparations for tonight." Julius said as he seemed to come from no where.

"Right, sorry nonno." He said, avoiding eye contact with ____.

"Lovino?" ____ almost whispered.  She took a few steps back to distance herself from him.  Her heart started racing and her hands started to sweat, she was worried about what he would do, especially since the last time she had seen him, he had tried to suffocate her with dirt.

Noticing movement out of the corner of his eye, Julius looked to see a very pretty woman standing in front of him.  He looked her up and down, then it dawned on him who she was.

"_____!!!" he almost yelled as he grabbed her and hugged her tight.

"Oh, how I have missed you, my little nipote.  When did you arrive, Alaric never said he was going to get you."

"Sorry, n...." ____caught herself before she could call Julius nonno, she remembered what Alaric had said to her yesterday.

"Mr. Vargas.  It was such a lovely morning and I was in such a hurry to come and say hi to everyone, that I decided to walk." She said, giving him a shy smile.

She looked up at him and almost lost it.  He looked as though he was going to cry.

"Oh, my little nipote!" He wailed.

"Has it really been so long that you don't feel you can call me you nonno anymore?  I think I need to lie down." He said, fanning himself as if he were going to faint.

"Or is it that you hate me so much for sending you away that you don't want to call me nonno just out of spite?"  He cried, leaning against Lovino's shoulder.

____ couldn't contain her laughter anymore and finally let it out.

"Oh, nonno!  Uncle Alaric was right!  This was fun." She said while laughing and throwing her arms around his neck.

"Nonno, of course I'm not mad at you.  I missed you so very much!" she said, as Julius wrapped his arms around her waist, picking her up and twirling her around.

"My little bambina does remember me!  I'm so happy!" Julius laughed.

"Ah, Mr. Vargas, here you are." Alaric said as he came up the path.

"Oh, ____, you're here already?  I was just about to notify Mr. Vargas that I was going to be leaving to get you."

"I'm sorry, Uncle Alaric.  It was such a nice morning and it's been so long since I've seen everyone, I was a little anxious to get here, so I walked."

"Wonderful!  Mr. Vargas, what time should I tell Mr. Dioli to meet you in your office?" Alaric asked.

"Hmm, after lunch.  I want to talk with ____ and I'm sure she wants to see Feliciano."

"Very much!" She smiled.

"I believe he is still in bed." Alaric sighed.

"Nonno, may I go wake him up?" ____ asked, a mischievous grin spreading across her face.

"Of course, my dear.  Lovino, will you please show her to Feli's room?" Julius asked, turning to his eldest grandson, who was still slightly pink from the contact with ___ earlier.

"Oh, it's alright nonno.  I'm pretty sure I remember where Feli's room is." she said, slightly nervous about being alone with Lovino.

"He moved rooms.  Shortly after you left, he wanted a different room.  He said the old room reminded him of you too much.  So, to stop being so sad, he said he needed to move into a different room."

"I'm sure I can find it on my own."

"Nonsense!  Lovino will show you, can't have you getting lost now, can we?" Julius said with a hearty laugh as he patted ___ rather roughly on the back.

"Now, go on, both of you.  Go wake up that lazy grandson of mine!" Julius said, giving them both a shove towards the house.

Lovino and ___ started in the direction of the house.  Lovino leading and ____ following a few paces behind.  The tension between the two was so heavy, Julius could swear he could see it.

Once they were in the house, Alaric spoke up.

"Julius, do you think it was a good idea to send her off alone with him?  You remember what happened the last time they saw each other."

"I know, but they're going to be working together, they need to get over what happened in the past.  Lovino is no longer that angry little boy."

"No, now he's just an angry man." Alaric replied.

"I know." Julius sighed.  "But, he has learned to control his rage and he hasn't attacked anyone like that since.  Besides, he's not so much angry, as he his quick to temper.  There's a difference."

"I know, but she doesn't.  Are you ever going to tell her about it?" Alaric asked.

"She's not his personal assistant so I really don't see the need to."  Julius said as he looked off in the direction ____ and Lovino had headed.
Italy!FamilyxReader ch 3 (Halloween story)
And here it is!  Chapter 3!  I just finished it, so i'm not sure how long ch 4 will take, but hopefully not too long.  Since it is kind of a halloween story, i want to try and finish it before Halloween, but we all know how life gets in the way of all that.

So, here is chapy 3 and I hope you all like it!
Julius stood outside Lovino's room for a few minutes before he entered.  He was listening to the commotion that was going on behind the door.

He remembered feeling that rage boiling in him when he first started to feel the change.  He knew he couldn't be mad at Lovino right now, he wasn't himself and wasn't in control  of his emotions.  Julius dreaded the destruction he was about to walk in on.

Quietly, he opened the door, what he saw didn't surprise him in the least.  Lovino was on his mattress, ripping all the straw out of it.  His eyes were glazed over with anger and hatred.  Julius knew that these weren't his real emotions, it's just how the change made him feel.  Puffing out his chest and standing at full height, Julius knew exactly how to handle Lovino in this state.  It would be very similar to the way his father handled him and he handled Lovino's father.

"Lovino!" He barked.

Lovino stopped ripping the straw out of the mattress and turned to look at his grandfather.  Seeing the authority radiating off his grandfather, he quickly sat on his bed.

"Do you understand what is happening to you?" Julius asked, closing the door behind him.

Lovino just shook his head.

"You are going through the change.  You are becoming a man."

"Already?" he asked, looking at his hands, not quite sure he believed his grandfather.

"Yes, sometimes it comes early and it looks like that is the case with you.  ___ will be heading off to school in two days and I'm sure the change will begin in your brother soon enough.  But, do you know what this means for you?"

"No." Lovino admitted.

"This means that I will be teaching you how to control the rage and the animal inside.  You will be learning under me from now on, being the oldest, it's time that you learn what role you will play as the family head.  Now this doesn't mean that you get to stop your studies, you have to continue with those as well."

"But what if I loose control while I'm with the teacher?"

"Don't worry, a clan teacher will be here soon enough to take over your studies."

Lovino couldn't help but feel a small sense of pride knowing that he was going through the change first and he would soon have his own special teacher and getting to spend a lot more time with his grandfather.  It meant that right now, he was more important and more special than Feliciano.

You couldn't help but talk Alaric's ear off on the ride back to your cottage. You didn't mind that he didn't say much, you actually preferred it, this meant that you could do all the talking.  You were so excited to hear the news about your knew little sister.

"Here we are." Alaric said as the horse walked up to the cottage.

"Thank you uncle Alaric.  Would you like to come in and hear the news too?" ____ asked as Alaric helped her off the horse.

At first he was going to say no, then he remembered what it was like for him when he found out he was being sent away and decided to join her on her news.  If nothing else, he could help her understand the role she would play in the future for the family.

"Mama!  Papa!  I'm home!  Nonno, said you have news for me!  Am I finally getting a sister?" She asked as she burst through the door.

"____, what are you talking about?" the girl's mother asked.

"Nonno said you had news for me and I guessed that I was getting a sister!" The little girl bounced as she spoke to her parents.

"No, honey, that's not what Mr. Vargas was talking about." (m/n) said, sitting in a chair and beckoning for ___ to come sit on her lap.

"Hello Mr. Beilschmidt." (f/n) said as Alaric entered the home.

"Hello, I hope you don't mind if I stay.  This happened to me when I was about her age and I thought I might be of help to you." he said.

"That would be fine, thank you." (m/n) smiled.

"Now, ___, honey, you're not getting a sister." (M/n) said, smiling at her daughter.

"A brother?" ____ said, her smile changing into a small sneer.

"No honey." (m/n) chuckled.

"Remember how we've always told you that one day you will have to go off to school so you can further your education?"  (f/n) said, coming up behind his daughter and put his hand on her shoulder as he kneeled down to be more eye level with her.

"Yea." She said, unsure of where her parents were going with the conversation.

"Well, the time has come.  Mr. Vargas came to us today and told us that you have surpassed both Vargas children and that your teachers have run out of things to teach you.  He says it's time to take your education to the next level."

"So, I'm not getting a little brother or sister?" She asked, tears starting to form.

"No, sweetie, I'm sorry.  At least not yet anyway." Her mother smiled, trying to hold back her own tears.

"____, you are going to be going to a very nice school in Sicily.  It's the same school I went to when I was your age." Alaric smiled.

"But that's so far away!  I won't get to see you at all!" ____ whined.

"That's not true, honey.  I'm sure you'll be able to come home for short breaks." (f/n) smiled.

"Unfortunately, she won't.  Her schooling and training will be so intense, that she won't be able to come home until she's done.  That's not to say, that she can't finish early and come home to start her aprenticship with Mr. Dioli."

"Apprenticeship?" ___ asked.

"That's where after you're done in school, you train under someone.  Since you accell in math, Mr. Vargas decided you would be perfect for the winery's book keeper." Alaric said.

"I thought that was going to be Feli's job?" ___ asked.

"Unfortunately, the boy lacks your talent with numbers and Mr. Vargas wants it to be you.  He sees you as family and knows you will be a trustworthy choice.  Normally, you would be trained as the family head's personal assistant, like I am to Mr. Vargas."

"NO!  Lovino hates me, he said so himself.  I don't want to ever have to see him again!" ___ said, burying her face into her mother's chest.

Alaric sighed.

"I understand, but as the winery's book keeper, you will have to deal with him on a daily basis.  But I promise you, when you come back, he will be different and I doubt he will hate you.  I don't think he hates you, he's just really angry right now."

"Then why did he say that and push me down?" she asked.

"Because, like I said, he's just really angry right now."
"But, why?  I didn't do anything to him."

"I know.  It's really difficult to explain, but, I promise you'll understand when you get older." Alaric said.

"But, I want to understand now!" ____ continued to cry into her mother's chest.

"I know.  I know, and I'm sorry.  But everything will get better, I promise.  Now, if you'll excuse me, I must get back to the manor.  Good day." Alaric smiled as he stood and let himself out.

"I don't want to go away to school.  I want to stay here with you and Feli."

"I know, honey, we're sorry, but this is a part of the contract we signed with Mr. Vargas when you were born.  From the time you could crawl, you have been with Feliciano and Lovino, but, now that you're old enough, it's time for you to go to school so you can be an asset to the Vargas family.  You will have a much better life than we could ever have hoped for you this way.  The Vargas's will care for you and treat you as one of their own." (f/n) said.

"Now, stop crying and why don't you help me make frittole?"

"Really!" she asked, beaming up at her mother.

"Of course, really.  You're father will help too!" the girl's mother laughed while looking at her husband who fell a little short on words.

"Yea, we'll all make frittole together." (f/n) said nervously.  He had never cooked a day in his life, but, if it would make his daughter happy, he would gladly do it.  He wanted to send her off with as many happy memories as possible.

"Yay!!!  This is gonna be so much fun!" ____ said as she ran to her father and gave him the biggest hug she could.

The next two days were filled with a lot of joy for the family.  They spent every moment together.  Even at bed time, they all slept in the same bed together.

It was hard for the (l/n) family when the carriage came to pick up ____.  They were all in tears.  Julius had even come to see her off, but the Vargas boys were not allowed to come, which ___ was very upset about.

"Don't worry, ____, you will be home before you know it." Alaric smiled at her as he bent down to give her a hug.  He knew how difficult this was for her, he had, after all, experienced the same thing.

"I'm going to miss you so much my beautiful, little nipote.  You learn fast and come back to us soon, ok?" Julius said as he embraced the girl in a hug so tight she thought he would squeeze the life out of her.

"Nonno, I can't breathe." She managed to wheeze out.

"I'm sorry, nipote.  I'm just going to miss you so much and it's going to be so long before I get to hug you again.  You will be a beautiful woman the next time I see you." Julius smiled with tears in his eyes.

He really did love the little girl as if she were his own granddaughter.  With as lovely as she was now, he knew she would grow up to be a stunning young woman.  It saddened him greatly that he would not get to see her grow into that beautiful woman.

"Mama.  Papa.  I'm going to miss you so much!" ____ said as she ran into her parents arms.

"We're going to miss you just as much!  Make sure you learn extra fast, just like your nonno said, then you can come home faster." (m/n) said.

"I will, I'll learn faster than anybody else!"

"We had better get going, Mr. Vargas." The carriage driver said, feeling bad for interrupting.

"Come on, ____, let's get going." Alaric said, grabbing the girl's hand and gently pulling her towards the carriage.

"Bye mama, bye papa!  I'll be back before you know it!" she said as she followed Alaric into the carriage.

The young girl was waving frantically out the carriage window, tears streaming down her face as the carriage driver gave the order to the horses to go.

She didn't want to leave her parents, but she knew, if she was going to provide for them when they got older, she would need to go to the school that Julius had chosen for her and learn all that she could, then come home and take her place as Mr. Dioli's apprentice.
Italy!FamilyxReader ch 2 (halloween story)
And here, my lovelies, is chapter 2 of my Halloween story inspired by :iconindigodreams100:, whom I have decided I would like to dedicate this story to. 
Oh, and just in case you all were wondering Alaric is Germania and Julius is Grandpa Rome :)

I hope you all enjoy this chapter too!
Julius watched as ____ and Feliciano played outside.  He could faintly hear their laughing through the window pane.  He smiled and chuckled to himself, remembering the days when he had a playmate and would play in the grape fields. Then, his eldest grandson, Lovino, entered his mind and he turned to look at the young boy.

"Lovino, why aren't you out playing with your brother?" He sighed.

"Because they don't include me in their games.  I'm always left out.  Besides, ___ just laughs at me." He scowled, crossing his arms across his chest as he sank lower in the chair he was currently occupying.

"Now, Lovino, you know that's not true.  I have watched you all play, she doesn't laugh at you, she laughs with you." Julius chuckled.

"Why are you defending her?  Do you love her more than me too?  She's not even family and you love her more than me!  I hate her!" Lovino yelled, trying to fight the tears from flowing as he ran out of the room and outside.

Julius just let out a heavy sigh and shook his head.

"I was hoping she would get to stay a little longer, but it looks like it's time to send her away."

Julius was not looking forward to telling Feliciano that it was time for ___ to be sent away to school.  He knew how attached to the young girl he was and how it would devastate him to send her to school, but it would have to be done, and soon by the way Lovino was acting.

Lovino was now twelve and would be turning thirteen soon and Julius knew that the change was starting in him.  He had heard Lovino cry out, whimper and sometimes growl in his sleep.  Julius had hoped that Lovino would be a late bloomer like his father, but it didn't seem that was going to happen.

Knowing what had to be set in motion, Julius called for his assistant, who was, once upon a time, his childhood playmate, and just like ___ was about to be, he had been sent away to school to learn a trade for the family to be an asset to Julius when he took over the winery.

"Yes, sir?" The blond man asked as he entered the room.

"Alaric, it's time." Was all Julius said when the man walked in.

"I understand, sir.  I will make the preparations." Alaric said, before turning to leave again, he stopped before he exited and turned to ask, "Excuse me sir, but have you decided on which school the girl will be attending?"

"Yes, there's a school in Sicily that will be perfect for her."

"Understood sir.  I will send the letter right away." Alaric bowed before leaving.

Julius sighed as he watched Feliciano and ____ play in the grape fields.  This time, it didn't bring a smile to his face or fill him with joy, it only brought sadness to his heart.  He was not looking forward to telling Feliciano the news.

Lovino ran outside and straight to the grape fields, before he realized where he was running.  He heard Feliciano and thought he was calling for him, then he heard ____ and he grew even angrier.

Slowly, he crept to where they were playing, seeing that they were playing hide and seek, he decided to sneak up on her, unfortunately for him, he stepped on a small twig and it cracked under his foot.  _____ quickly whipped her head around and smiled at him.

"Hey Lovino, did you come to play with us?" she asked.

Her smile and the way she talked to him, like they were friends angered him even more, though he wasn't sure exactly why.

He just shook his head at her.

"Oh, well, since you're here, would you like to play with us?  We're playing hide and seek and it would be a lot more fun if you played too.  Feli isn't very good at hiding or seeking." She giggled.

"Why do you like playing with him so much?" Lovino asked, still staring down at her.

"I don't know, I guess because it's just fun.  I like playing with you too, now come on, play with us." She said, grabbing his hand and trying to pull him down next to her.

"DON'T TOUCH ME!!!" Lovino yelled, pulling his hand away from her.

"Lovi?" She said, reaching for him again as she stood up.

"And don't call me that!  You're not my friend!  You're not part of this family!  You're just a filthy peasant who was lucky enough to be born around the same time as us!  You're nothing!  And I hate you!" Lovino yelled as he pushed ___ down on the ground.

He had pushed her so hard, she slid in the dirt.  She looked up at him with tears in her eyes.  She didn't understand what she had done to make him so angry with her.

"Lovino, why...."  she asked, tears welling up in her eyes as she tried to stand up.

"SHUT UP!  Just shut up!  And who said you could get up from the dirt?" Lovino said, pushing her back down, this time falling face first into the dirt.  Lovino then sat on her to prevent her from getting back up.  Pushing her face into the dirt, he continued to yell at her.

"See this dirt, this is what you were born from!  This is the only thing you will know when you die.  Do you understand?  You're nothing!  You're filthy!  You're disgusting!  You're not our friend!  You're not our sister!  You're nothing!" He continued to yell, shoving her face more and more into the dirt.  He enjoyed feeling her struggle under him, it made him feel powerful and strong, it reminded him that he was better than her.


Hearing his name, Lovino let go of ____'s head and turned to look at who had called him.  He glared when he saw it was his brother.

"What are you doing to____?  Get off, you're hurting her!"

"Why?  I'm only reminding her where she belongs and what she is." He said, a dark smile forming on his lips.

"Feli, help me!" He heard ____ cry.

"I said, get off!" Feliciano yelled as he charged at Lovino and tackled him to the ground.

"You idiot!  What are you doing?" Lovino asked, pushing Feliciano off him and getting up.

"What are you doing?" Feliciano asked, getting up and standing almost just as tall as his brother.

"Isn't it obvious?  I'm reminding ____ where she came from.  Reminding her that she is beneath us!  She's just like the dirt we walk on."

"No she's not!  You take that back!" Feliciano said, now he was starting to cry.

"Why, it's the truth.  She's worthless filth." Lovino laughed while spitting in your direction.  When he looked back to Feliciano, he was met with a fist to his face.  Not expecting it, so not having been braced for the impact, he, again, fell backwards into the dirt.

"You take it back!  Take back what you said about ___.  Tell her she's better than the dirt!" Feliciano continued to cry as his fists continued to make contact with Lovino.  Lovino had managed to bring his arms up to cover his face before Feliciano had jumped on him.


At the sound of their Grandfather's voice, Feliciano froze.  Still sobbing, he turned to look at his grandfather.

"Nonno, I'm sorry." Feliciano said, quickly getting off his brother and running to Julius.

"It's all right, Feli, I saw what happened." He said in a tender voice, then he turned to Lovino and with a very stern tone he said, "Lovino, go to your room, I will deal with you shortly."

"But Nonno!  It's not my fault, it's HER fault!" Lovino said, pointing to you, who was now cowering behind Alaric.  You were afraid Lovino would attack you again.

"NOW!" Julius shouted while pointing up to the house.

Lovino looked like his whole world had just been shattered and the tears he had been holding back, broke free.

"I HATE YOU!  I HATE YOU ALL!" He yelled as he ran up to the house.

"I'm sorry, ____, are you all right?" Julius asked, kneeling down to get a good look at her.

"I'm sorry, nonno, I don't know what I did that made him so mad at me!  I'm sorry!" She said, running and wrapping her arms around his neck.

"Shhh, it's all right.  It's not your fault, you didn't do anything wrong.  I'm afraid Lovino was just very angry and took it out on you." He said, brushing the hair out of her face.

"I want you and Feliciano to go with Alaric, he'll get you all cleaned up.  I have to go and talk with your parents now, all right." He asked, his hand brushing the young girl's cheek.

She nodded and took Alaric's hand as he led her and Feliciano back up to the house to get both of them cleaned up.  Julius let a heavy sigh out as he stood up and watched the three of them walk away.  He was not going to enjoy the conversation that he was about to have with her parents.

(f/n) and (m/n) had just finished their lunch and (m/n) had just started cleaning up.  Her husband sat at the table finishing his coffee when there was a knock at the door.

"I'm not expecting anyone today." (f/n) said as he stood up and headed for the door.  He was surprised to see Julius Vargas standing on the other side of it.

"Mr. Vargas, to what do we owe the honor?" he asked, standing aside so Julius could come in.

"I needed to talk with you and your wife." He said as he entered.

"Yes, of course, she's in the kitchen, please, this way." (f/n) showing Julius the way into the kitchen.

"(m/n), dear, Mr. Vargas is here to talk to us." (f/n) said as they entered the kitchen.

"Oh, welcome, Mr. Vargas, would you like some tea or coffee?" (m/n) asked with a pleasant smile.

"No, thank you.  I'm just here to talk.  I'm assuming you both know why I needed to talk with you?" Julius said as he sat at the table, followed by (f/n).

"You're wanting to send ___ away to school." (f/n) stated.

"Yes, I believe she is ready, there isn't anything more the teachers here can teach her.  She is advancing very quickly, even quicker than my grandsons.  Her teachers say she's learned everything they can teach her."  What Julius was telling them was a half truth, it was true that she was out-learning both Feliciano and Lovino, but she hadn't surpassed them so much yet.

"That's both wonderful and sad news." (m/n) said, a small smile gracing her lips.  "When will she be leaving?"

"In two days.  I have already sent word and payment to the school, my message will reach them shortly before ___ does."

"Why so soon?" (f/n) asked.

"Because the sooner she goes to school, the sooner she can come home." Julius smiled.

"Dear, it's for the best, we knew this day was going to come." (m/n) said, placing her hand on (f/n)'s shoulder.

"I know, I just didn't think it would come this fast." He sighed.

"I don't think any of us did.  I will miss her, too.  You know I love her as if she was my own granddaughter and the boys see her as a little sister."

"Yes, we know and we are eternally grateful, it's just, we're really going to miss her." (m/n) said, begining to cry.

"We all will." Julius smiled, placing his hand over hers.

"I will send her home soon, why don't you both take the next two days off to spend with ____.  She won't need to come up to the house.  I must go and let the boys know what is going to happen.  Enjoy the next couple of days.  I will send Alaric when it is time." Julius said as he got up from the table.

"Thank you, Mr. Vargas.  _____ loves you all very much too, all she does is talk about you and your family.  We really are grateful for the opportunity you gave her."  (m/n) said as she and her husband saw Julius to the door.

"And my family thanks you for generous sacrifice.  Good afternoon." Julius said, then turned to leave.

It was with a heavy heart he headed back to the manor, fearing the worst when he told Feliciano the news.

"Nonno!" Feliciano and ____ smiled as he entered the room, running to him and hugging him as tight as they could.

"Hello my little bambini." He chuckled as he wrapped his arms around their small bodies.

"I see the two of you are all nice and clean now.  ____, I'm glad you didn't get hurt too bad." He smiled, roughing up the young girl's hair.

"Nope, I'm strong, just like you, nonno!" she beamed.

"Yes you are." He smiled back at her.

"Now, ___, it is time for you to go home.  Your parents have some news they want to share with you."

"Is it that I'm getting a little sister?" She asked, her smile getting bigger, if that was even possible.

Julius just laughed, "I can't ruin the surprise, but don't be too disappointed if that's not what it is.  Alaric, will you please take her home."

"Right away, sir." Alaric bowed and took the girl's hand.

"Bye, Feli, see you tomorrow." She waved as she was led out the door.

Julius stood and watched them leave, he waited a few more minutes before he turned to Feliciano, the smile now gone from his face.

"You're sending her away now, aren't you?  Will I get to see her before she leaves?" Feliciano said, hanging his head.

"I'm sorry, Feli, but no and yes, I am sending her away, it looks like your brother's change is starting early.  I'm sorry Feli, but you knew this was going to happen one day." Julius said, sitting on the bed next to his grandfather.

"I know, I was just hoping it would have been later.  Now who am I going to play with?" He asked, not hiding the fact that he was crying.

"You have your brother."

"He hates me, nonno.  Besides, now that he's starting to change, he won't want to play with me anyway.  I wish I was changing too."

"I know.  I'm sorry, but I'm sure it will happen sooner than you think." Julius said, trying to cheer his grandson up.

"I hope so.  I'm really going to miss her, nonno!" Feliciano sobbed as he wrapped his arms around his grandfather.

"I know, Feli, I am too.  But hey, I'm sure she'll be back before you know it!  She's a fast learner you know and she will have to come back to apprentice under Mr. Dioli.  I'm sure she'll be back before any of us even know it.  Besides, you can still write letters to her."

"Can I write to her everyday?" Feliciano asked, his face a little brighter.

"Of course you can!" Julius smiled, glad his grandson was cheering up, even just a little.

"Then I'm gonna start right now!" Feliciano said, hopping off his bed and heading for his desk so he could write his very first letter.

Julius smiled as he watched Feliciano start to write.  The smile quickly faded as his thoughts drifted to Lovino and the talk he now had to have.

My DeviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 11:23 AM

I can't believe it's been almost 5 years since I joined DA, I don't really remember my reason for joining, but, I'm glad I did.  I have meet so many amazing writers and artists!  I have also been introduced to works I wouldn't normally seek out.  I have only been posting actively for just over 2 years.  DA also got me back into writting, which I am so grateful for!  I have really missed writting, I am also glad that there are so many other fan fiction writers here.  It was ll of them that helped to inspire me to pick up the pen again, well, more pick up the keyboard again ;) lol. 

I honestly don't even remember how I found that first fan fiction, but, boy, am I glad I did.  Until then, I had thought DA was only for artists, I had never really thought of writing as an art form.  But, I am also more than a writer, I'm a crocheter, a sewer, a jewelry designer, a decoden artist and an amateur clay and drawing artist.  There are so many forms of art out there to celebrate and learn about and I am so glad DA is here to introduce me to new forms of art!

Now on to my top five favorite submissions!! Sadly, a couple of the stories I wanted to share were removed, but I still have lots of others to choose from! :)  keep in mind, there are in no particular order.

This is one of my favs because I put a lot of myself in it.  I was feeling particularly low the day I wrote this.  I have also gotten tons of comments from readers who have been able to relate to the story and have shared their experiences with me.  A few people have even said this has helped them to feel better about themselves, which is just such a super, huge honor!  Even I love to go back and re-read it when I've had a particularly bad day, always makes me feel a little better!

I chose this one, because it was myfirst completed chapter story on DA, it is also the longest.  Though there are some chapters that are weaker than others, all in all, I was very happy with the way it came out! :)

Cutest thing I have ever made!!!! by Tygermane

I chose this one, because, again, I'm not just a writer.  This is one of my favorite amigurumis that I have made.  I also chose it, because not everything I do is Hetalia or fan art, though 90% of it is! Lol. Besides, how can you not love a mini octopus in a sailor hat?

This is another favorite one-shot that I wrote.  I tried to put a lot of emotion into it.  Even I cried while writing it!  I listened to that song, I don't know how many times while I wrote this, but, this is what the song made me think of when I heard it the first time.

I chose this one because of all the potential it has.  I really want to do a great job on this one! Though it may end up being rather short, I really want it to be one of my better fan fics.  I know a lot of my readers have asked me to continue this one, and I will, I just have 2 other stories I want to finish before I dive into this one.

And there you have it, my DA story!  I really have loved all my time here on DA, all the people I have had the chance to talk to, all the wonderful stories I have been able to read.  It really has been a most positive experience!  Who knows hoe long I will continue to post to DA, but I hope it's a long time!  I guess as long as people continue to read what I write, I will continue to post!

Thank you to all the wonderful readers and writers and all other artists, who have made DA such a success! And here's to another 14 years!!!!
