"(Name)?" Ludwig called as he entered your house. "(Name)? Are you home?"
"In here, Ludwig!"
Ludwig made his way into the kitchen. You stood by the counter tossing a salad, your body dancing to "Gangnam Style" which had just come on the radio. He blushed a little and smiled at your attire, shorts and a t-shirt. You were so cute.
"Heeeeeeeey, sexy lady!" You sang along with Psy, hopping like a cowboy. You turned to look at him. "Luddy dance with me!"
Ludwig shook his head. "Nein. I don't zink so."
"Come on!!! It's fun! Oh, right, sorry. I forgot you were allergic to that stuff." You said with a giggle.
Ludwig furrowed his eyebrows, and looked around. No one appeared to be watching. With a sigh he stood up and put his hands on his hips.
"…….Oppa Gangnam Style." He said hesitantly before skipping sideways, his cheeks now a bright pink.
You let out a squeal. "Awwww! Luddy you look so cute~"
"I am NOT cute." He huffed, sitting back down. He then looked over to the salad and glass of water you had sat on the table. "Is zat all your eating?"
"Yeah. I'm starting my new diet remember?" You mumbled, stabbing the green leaves with your fork and scooping them into your mouth.
Ludwig scoffed. "You und zose damn diets."
"Easy for you to say, Lud. You look like Adonis and all you eat is potatoes and wurst and drink beer!" You gestured toward the handsome German.
Ludwig blushed at your compliment.
And besides. I'll never look like one of the girls in Psy's music videos if I eat like a cow."
"You are not a cow." Ludwig said sternly.
You took a sip of water. "Probably weigh as much as one."
Ludwig growled. "Vould you shut up? Und stop starving yourself."
"There's nothing wrong with missing a few calories." You took a bite of a tomato.
"Still no excuse to live like a rabbit." Ludwig mumbled.
Later after Ludwig had gone home you sat on the couch, eating a granola bar and watching T.V. Suddenly a commercial interrupted your favorite show, Hetalia.
"Hi! I'm Alfred Jones, a.k.a. the Hero!" A man on the T.V. shouted at you. "Are you over weight?"
"A little." You mumbled.
"Do you consider yourself a horrible human being for torturing your body by being overweight?"
You shrugged. "Not exactly—"
"Well have I got the solution for you! The Chuck Norris diet! Here to tell you about it is the legend himself, Chuck Norris!"
Sure enough Chuck Norris appeared.
"Hi, I'm Chuck Norris."
"Sorry boys, I'm already on a diet." You said before grabbing the remote and changing the channel.
You sighed, looking down at your granola bar. A wave of frustration hit you. Who were you
kidding? You weren't going to get anywhere with this new diet. You tossed the granola bar and the wrapper into the trash can.
From now on, no food AT ALL. And you were going to exercise until you dropped! You grinned confidently. This would help you lose some weight!
Ludwig walked down the crowded hallways of your school and outside to the recreation area.
He made his way over to your favorite spot; a picnic table by a willow tree. He set his books down on the table and grabbed a piece of wurst out of his backpack, munching on it as he waited for you.
He was growing concerned. You seemed so tired as of late, dark circles growing under your eyes. You hadn't been eating lunch saying that you'd eat when you'd get home. Yesterday he'd gone over to your house to find you asleep wearing exercise clothes, sweat pouring from your forehead. He hoped that what he thought was going on wasn't actually happening and that he was just being paranoid.
Ludwig looked up to see you walking down the stairs, your (color) hair in a messy bun. The circles under your eyes had seemed to have gotten darker and your face was extremely pale.
"(Name)?" He said, concern clear in his voice.
You smiled at him, thinking to yourself how cute the German looked when he was worried.
Nothing to worry about, though. You were a big girl and you were killing this diet.
Suddenly, black dots swirled in your vision and your head felt like it was floating. The black dots grew to until you saw nothing at all. Next thing you knew you were on the ground.
Ludwig was off of the bench and running toward you before you even hit the ground.
"(Name)!" he cried, kneeling down to check on you. A small crowd gathered. Ludwig looked around.
"Vere is ze nurse's office?"
A girl pointed to the hallway. "Last door on the left."
Ludwig scooped you up, and began jogging toward the building.
"Dude, I'm surprised you could lift her!"
At this Ludwig stopped. He turned around to stare at the boy the shout had originated from, his ice blue eyes piercing into his very soul. The boy's face drained of color and he sought shelter behind one of his friends. Ludwig then turned around, continuing on his rescue mission.
"Ugh…" You groaned, a wave of exhaustion hitting you.
Your vision cleared to see the handsome face of a certain German you knew. His hand was stroking your cheek, his eyebrows knitted together in worry.
"Hey Luddy…" You whispered. You looked around to see you were in the nurse's office.
"Here. Ze nurse said for you to have zese." Ludwig held out a carton of apple juice and a chocolate chip cookie. You shook your head, even though your stomach voiced its displeasure at your decision.
"I'm on a new diet…." You said with a tired smile.
Ludwig gritted his teeth. "DAMMIT (NAME), EAT ZE FAHKING COOKIE!"
You jumped slightly, blinking in surprise. Ludwig had never shouted at you before, at least not in that tone of voice. You reached out taking the cookie, trying to hide the tears that now welled up in your (color) eyes. Ludwig, being ever observant, caught them.
There was a moment of silence.
"Vhy do you do zis to yourself?" He sighed, rubbing a hand through his blond hair.
You looked down, tears beginning to trail down your cheeks. "I don't know… I just wanted to lose weight so fast so I could be beautiful--"
You were interrupted suddenly with Ludwig pressing his lips to yours. Your eyes widened and your face heated. You closed your eyes and enjoyed the taste and sensation of him. Too soon he pulled away, his blue eyes warm. He smiled.
"Dummen Kopf. Don't you get it?" He cupped your cheek. "You are beautiful. Just ze vay you are."
You gripped his hand, more tears flowing. "Do you really think so?"
"Ja." He leaned his forehead against yours. "Und…I love you…."
You let out a choked laugh. "I love you too, Luddy."
He smiled, his cheeks pink. Suddenly his face grew back to its normal stern look. "Now, eat your cookie."
You giggled and gave a small salute. "Yes sir!"
And God was that cookie delicious.
(But not as half as delicious as your new German boyfriend.)
