Third Person POV
Gilbert woke up with a sigh. His silvery white hair messier and his ruby red eyes dull. Even though outside was warm and sunny, all he felt was cold and emptiness. Dragging himself out of bed, he began his way to his bedroom. On his was, he passed a room. A memory flashed in his head.
"Hey _____.. I heard you're gonna move back with your parents.." Gilbert questioned, very unlike his 'awesome' self. The (e/c) eyed girl turned, seeing her best friend, and secret crush mind you, standing by her bedroom door.
"Yeah.." she turned around as tears bubbled in her eyes, silently packing her things. She had been living alone for a long time, since she started high school in fact. She was able to support herself from the start but things came downhill in her last year of high school. She lost her job at the cafe she worked on for hitting an employee. She couldn't help it! The girl touched a sensitive subject. The landlord's son was constantly hitting on her since she lost her job and he even tried to touch her chest once!
"______.." Gilbert's voice brought her out of her thoughts. She turned around, not before wiping her tears away, to see Gilbert scratching the back of his head nervously. "Wouldyouliketostaywiththeawesomeme?" _____ blinked.
"What? Gil.. I can't understand when you talk too fast, silly," she laughed lightly.
"R-right.. w-would you like to stay with... me?" he asked, slower this time. ____ laugh died down.
'Did he just stutter?' ____ asked herself. "Are.. you sure, Gil?" _____ asked, tilting her head making the Prussian blush inwardly.
'Darn why must you be so cute!' Gilbert thought to himself. "Y-yeah!" he laughed that snake-like laugh of his. The female smiled softly.
"Thank you Gil," she enveloped him in a hug.
Tears bubbled in the male's eyes as the flashback ended.
'Why can't she just come back already? ____... please.. I miss you..' a few tears slid down his cheek as he bit his lip trying to stop himself from crying. He took a deep breath, wiped his tears and continued his daily routine.

Gilbert was currently with his two friends at the park. He sat on top of a picnic table while the other two sat on the bench.
"Mi amigo! Let's go to Maid Cafe! It'll be nice for once," Antonio, a brown haired spaniard, said with a wide grin on his face. His green eyes sparkling as usual.
"Why there?" Gilbert asked, raising one of his eyebrows in confusion.
"What? Can't we go there?" Antonio asked, smirking ever so slightly.
"Beside, it looks like it's gonna rain," Francis, a frenchman with long blonde locks and blue eyes, said. Gilbert let his gaze turn towards the dark sky.
"Ja, ja. Whatever, let's just go," Gilbert jumped off the table and walked ahead, missing the smirk that were shared between his two friends. When they arrived at the cafe, they took a seat beside the window.
I was listening in on Francis about some girl he got the other day. Typical Francis. I look at Antonio to see him looking at his watch.
"Oi Toni! You vaiting for somezhing?" I asked, raising an eyebrow. Toni's face turned red and he spouted out random nonsense.
"Ah! no! it's just that-" I didn't hear the rest as I look outside. It was raining heavily. The door bell chimed and a, very familiar, female voice was heard.
"Ah! It's nice to be back again~" she giggled to herself. I snapped my head up to see a woman with (h/l) length (h/c) hair, sticking to her (f/c) coat. Her (e/c) eyes looked around the little cafe with a sense of nostalgia in them. My mind went blank.
"Chica! Chica! Over here!" Toni yelled, waving his arm in the air. The female grinned and walked over, placing her bag near the table.
"______!" Toni stood up and enveloped the female in a hug. ____?!
"Mon dieu! You look gorgeous!" Francis exclaimed, practically glomping her. "So.." Francis pulled away and smirked, wiggling his eyebrows suggestively. "Can I have you heart now, mon amour~?"
"You idiot," she laughed, the same beautiful laugh, and punched Francis's arm playfully. The three of them laughed, and I'm probably just sitting here like a-
"Oi! Why you sitting there like an idiot? don't you miss me, Gil?" she smiled, sitting beside me. I touched her hand carefully. I still couldn't believe she was here. With me. After 2 whole years, the woman I love is right here. Right in front of me. I held her body close to mine, placing my head in the crook of her neck. The scent of (fav. scent) invaded my senses.
"Gilbert? hey.. why are you crying?" she tried to look at my face but I just held her tighter. That's when I heard her giggle. "I thought the awesome you never cries," I could practically hear the smirk in her voice.
"S-shut up frau..!" I smiled, a real smile. I pulled away from her and kissed her cheeks. As I pulled away, slowly, I could feel the heat from her cheeks radiate to mine. When I finally had a good look at her, her face was red and a pout was on her lips. I raised an eyebrow at her.
"Idiot.. You missed.." she look me dead in the eye as my face turned to one of confusion. I opened my mouth to say something but was stop by a pair of lips. Her lips to be exact. As she pulled away, both of our faces were red. Well, hers more than mine. I smiled, remembering the time when we confessed two years ago, in this very spot. Back then, she had tears in her eyes and she was clinging to my shirt saying she didn't want to leave.
"Ich liebe dich, mein frau," I whispered, bringing her hand close and kissing the ring on her finger. I look into her beautiful (e/c) eyes and smiled. Life is certainly going to change now that she's here again.
