In your hand you pulled out from the black hat a...dog collar.
Well...this was interesting.
You looked up at Alfred who was biting his bottom lip, blushing hard and trying not to burst out laughing at the person coming behind you. The person in front of you is Ludwig, a tall-and you mean really tall-German with blond hair and blue eyes as his cheeks grew red from embarrassment. You realized that you were the one who took Ludwig's collar from before and you tried to hold your smile from him.
"Looks like someone's gonna get some toni-"
Before Alfred could even finish off his sentence, you swiftly turned yourself around and one move brought down Alfred who fell to the ground, both hands on his crotch and groaning loudly.
You turned back to Ludwig and smiled sweetly to him. "Shall we go inside?"
Ludwig nod solemnly and the both of you went to the closet, him letting you in first as you examined the dark room when really you can't see anything at all. You heard the door behind you and you could see more darkness around you than usual. You were able to sit on the floor and lay your back on the wall, your vision started to become aware of its surroundings and you saw Ludwig stood over the door shyly.
You patted on the floor next to you, instructing him to come over and sit. When you saw Ludwig look at you, it was full of seriousness and diligence, as though he never had any sort of fun at all and wasn't adapted to these types of games.
"Come on," you cooed at him playfully, "sit with me, Luddy!"
Ludwig's left eyelid twitched unhappily. "Don't call me that, _..."
"Why not, you let Feliciano do it, right?" you asked sweetly, acting a little girly.
"I can't stop him from calling me that," Ludwig said, strictly motioning over to your side and took a sit himself beside you. "And every time we're training, he finds some way to skip off and get me so pissed—especially in the morning."
You giggled a little, "That sounds like Feli—and sometimes he'd find other times flirting with girls and one time he did so with me!"
"I'll never understood that pasta-loving Italian with his flirtatious behavior…" Ludwig heaved a deep sigh and you smiled cheekily.
"Hey, I have a question…"
Ludwig glanced at you, "Go on."
"Have you ever kissed a person before?"
That question made him raise an eyebrow of suspicion. "Why would you want to know something personal as that?" you shrugged in curiosity and he said, "I never kissed a girl before because I…I always feel shy around females unless it's about work."
"What about me?" you asked him and he fully looked at you. "Can't you talk with me about normal things? We both just talked about Feli, and that wasn't anything business related, so shouldn't I be like something of a good friend?"
He stared at you in awe and replied, "I…guess so, _. I only can talk with Elizabeta because we know each other for years, but I feel as though I can talk to you." Then he smiled an unrestrained smile. "I'm glad we're able to talk like this."
You grinned in agreement. "I'm glad, too, Ludwig…"
It was strange, you thought, because you never really say Ludwig's name like that since you preferred his nickname. However, the time you spent with him was sweet and you have gotten to a new side to Ludwig that was never explored before.
Out of nowhere, the door slammed wide open and it revealed Alfred holding a camera in view of you and Ludwig while Feliciano hid behind Alfred to watch what was going on.
Alfred dropped his arm in disappointment. "What the hell, no porn?"
You and Ludwig stepped out of the closet and when you turned to look at Ludwig, he was with Alfred and they had a little discussion about something, but when you leaned in a bit to hear it, you couldn't believe what was going on.
"I have tapes that you can use," Ludwig mumbled shyly, "if you want."
"Dude, I don't want your doggie porn. Nor do I want your porn at all, it's all creepy and stuff."
You stepped in and said, "You never know if you don't try it,"
"WHAT?" Alfred screamed in horror. "HEY, EVERYONE, _-"
Before you could shout at Alfred that you were kidding, Ludwig came right up him and punched him right in the stomach so hard that he tumbled onto the floor. When you stared at the injured Alfred, your eyes turned to Ludwig who saw you and gave a bashful smile.
What he said was something you couldn't believe…
"I hope you don't mind me asking," he said. "But…can we go out sometime?"
You posed as though you were thinking about his offer, making him nervous, but you smirked childishly and gave your answer.
"Sure, I don't mind!" you replied to his question.
"Keep running, you three!" Ludwig shouted at you, Feliciano and Kiku who were running laps along with you.
You wheezed at this training Ludwig prepared for you, and he considers this as a date…
"I DON'T WANNA RUN ANYMORE!" Feliciano cried—again—as he runs faster than you and Kiku who looked at him in disbelief.
"FELICIANO, GET BACK HERE!" Ludwig screeched and charges after him as you and Kiku finally stopped from your tracks, exhausted from this unexpected exercise.
"I heard you are dating Ludwig-kun, ne?" Kiku asked and you nodded because you couldn't bother saying the words with a dry voice. Kiku smiled and said, "I hope you treat him kindly and give him time, he is a little nervous about dating you."
You smiled a little, and a little feeling of gladness filled in yourself.
