Bang Bang Bang.
you looked up from ballet shoes watching as kiku and Felinciano walked out of their rooms.
"Shourd we answer?"
You just turned away from the door and who ever was trying to bash it down. Slowly continuing sewing your slippers to perfection.
"Nah just leave it. Its probably just Matthias drunk again he usually comes around this time of night."
Bang Bang Bang
"Bella i-a think we should-a answer it."
"Leave it Feli he will go away and bug Lukas down the hall."
BANG BANG BANG
Okay who ever that was behind the door, whether it was Mathias or not, they were starting to piss you off.
"Love please open the door!!!!!!"
You perked up once you heard the family British accent. Great of all the people you got the magic 'magician' or as you called him.
"~ve~ ill go-a let him-a in."
Leaning on the back of the couch you watched and upside down Feli run to the door and open it.
you shot up from your spot as Feli screamed and ran over to you. Standing there in the apartment doorway was a tall blonde man, wearing a high ranking SS uniform. His mouth was gagged and he had magical bounds on him. Well you hoped that thats what those glowing lines all over him was.
"Dont worry love i have him bound."
Popping up beside him was the short Brit.
"Well come on chap, they wont hurt you."
You slowly walked over to the kitchen with feli gripping your arm tightly. Soon you paused and looked at the two men.
"What did you do know Arthur?"
"Well um love....oh how do i explain this."
You watched as Arthur rubbed his neck and looked down to the ground blushing. You knew the Brit liked you, hell anyone could. He was to damn obvious but why was he here?
"Spit it out."
You watched as Kiku stepped into his bedroom doorway soon to lean on the frame. You could see his right hand slip behind the door frame, it was probably on his Katana.
"Well love um. okay i was trying to open a portal to a different dimension, or at least a window. I accessed the wrong worm hole and he popped out."
You felt your eye twitch. Even you knew that no one should mess with time what so ever!!!!
"Arthur should i kill you know or later for even attempting at this."
You watched as he flinched, especially when you cracked your knuckles. Man he pissed you off.
"Any way Arthur-kun why did you bring him here?"
"~ve~ why-a here?"
"Well i know you chaps are exchange students for her school and your land lord knows that. Since he's German i thought it would be safe to bring him here."
You watched as the man perked up once he heard the word German. Why was he trying to escape? fighting back? taking advantage? Because you bloody knew well that Feli or Arthur would not last and kiku and you combined would have problems with this brute of a giant.
"Also i know she is a rather Historian so i figured that.."
"That he would be safer with me because im obsessed with Russian and German history."
Oh you wanted to hit that smile off of his face. What he did was plain stupid. Yet quickly you were beaten to your desired objective.
The towering man soon turned to the Brit and head butted him to the ground. Soon he turned to you only to freeze.
There you were, coldest look of a killer on your face, your P-38 pointed between the middle of his eyes, Kiku's katana was laid delicately on his neck.
"~ve~ Arthur are you-a okay?"
You listened as Felinciano ran towards Arthur pulling him off the ground.
"You bloody wanker!!!"
"SHUT UP Arthur. You the one who brought him from his time. And judging from his uniform he is know other that General Ludwig Beilschmidt."
You smiled as his eyes widened for a simple second then return to a glare of cold blue steel.
"You are Ludwig Beilschmidt arnt you ja?"
You watched as he just looked at you, then he finally blinked slowly.
"Great now sit over there."
You smiled the warmest smile you could as you pointed him to one of the Dining table chairs. He just stayed there eyeing your down till Kiku gently placed his Katana on his back, then finally the German moved.
You watched as he sat down in the chair rather quite straight backed. You motioned Kiku and walked towards Arthur.
"Take the binds off Arthur."
"Are you crazy love!!!"
You just stared at him with your Stoic face.
"Take them off and leave Arthur before i make you leave without your manly pride. And put a bind on the house. He does not leave what so ever!"
Watching Arthur walk off towards the door you sighed in audibly. Soon the Brit looked back and eyed you sadly.
"If anything happens Love."
"Yes yes i know Arthur, call you."
Finally you cracked a warm smile and waved him off. He opened the door and walked out, silently closing the only exit. You walked over to the gathered men and looked out the window. In a flash a strip of gold with elegant runes flashed across the glass view.
You grunted when you felt Feli grab onto you tightly. Turning back you saw the man moving and taking off his gag. You walked and took the chair across from him, looking over to Feli you smiled gently.
"Mind getting him a glass of water hun?"
Turning back you met a pair of ice blue majestic eyes. He was more handsome then what you thought he was.
"So Herr Beilschmidt ich spreche nicht deutsches, Ich spreche Englisch. Do you?"
You smiled at him gently as he listened to what you said. Soon Feli was at your side with a glass of water. He cautiously handed the glass to the man. you grabbed Feli's hand and squeezed it gently as the German took it form him. Feli looked at you and smiled as he took the seat at the other end of the table. Even Kiku was now sitting on the other side of the man, his sword ready to be drawn to kill.
the Man looked at you and said something you wish you never heard.
Your eye twitched, One thing one thing never to say.
you tried to smile but man that pissed you off.
"So Herr Beilschmidt, how well are you at English?"
"I am pretty gut."
"Good now rule number 1 never call a Canadian and American."
Sure Canada and america were neighbors but Canadians were really prideful, we really disliked being called Americans. They probably hated to be called Canadians to but what ever floats your boat.
"sorry. Are sose two Canadian as vell?"
"No they are exchange students from Japan and Italy. They are living with me to attend courses."
You watched as the German eyed the other two and nodded to them. Your roommates probably thought you were crazy to be so calm and rather quite hospitable to this man. Especially since he was wearing a high ranked SS Nazi uniform.
"As you have probably figured you will not be leaving here whats so ever. Even if you kill us you will not be able to leave. Even if someone comes here and opens that door you still will not be able to leave. Even though Arthur can screw things up dramatically he can at least do something right for people he cares about. Anyways you have any questions?"
"Well then shoot."
"Vhy are you vearing pants? Und vhy is se voman in charge?"
With a deep inhale then exhale you shook your head and eyed the man. He was from the 1940's after all.
"Hun this is a time that is a lot more...how do i say this. well advanced then your time. Arthur did time warp you after all."
"Vhat time is it."
You looked at him and sighed again. Might as well tell him because there was no chance in hell were you sending him back.
You watched as it slowly sank in. He just sat there quietly and looked at the ground distantly.
You looked at Kiku and saw him looking sad for the man.
"do you know who he is?"
You sighed and saw the man perk up and look at you.
"He is general Ludwig Beilschmidt, General Gilbert Beischmidts younger brother. it is said that beofre Gilbert was captured that Ludwig was killed in action. They guessed that an artillery shell landed on him or near him, completely vaperising him. Although Gilbert Beilschmidt fully believed that his brother was still alive, its just that he disappeared. this happened April 30th 1945, 7 days before the Russians."
"Vait! vhat about se russians! Vhat happened to mein bruder?!?"
You looked at the man and sighed yet again.
"Would you like me to get you a book or would you like me to tell you?"
you looked at the man and put the gun on the table, out of his reach as a just in case.
"What i am saying is true. On April 30th 1945 Adolf Hitler committed suicide along with his wife.
May 7th the Russians invaded Berlin and the flag of the soviet union was hung for everyone to see. because of the allies and the Russians Berlin, along with all of Germany was split in half.
When this happened the Berlin wall was created along with the fence or iron curtain. Germany was split in half. The east side of Germany was conquered by the Russians and hidden for around 50 years till the soviet union collapsed."
"Vhat about mein bruder!!!"
"He was captured by the Russians. They claimed that he suffered shell shock but was still taken. He was a prisoner of war and was worked so hard that most succumbed to death."
You watched as he sat back in his chair, face blank as he processed what you were saying.
"Although he survived. In fact he's still alive today."
You smiled gently as he looked at you, hope returning to his pale blue eyes.
"He actually lives here, we meet often for our mourning breakfast. He tells me his stories and he talks about you a lot."
"Can i meet him?"
"Im afraid not for now. I can possibly get him to come here when he is free. But mind you he is rather old but he's still spry for an old man. Still flirting with all the waitresses and what not."
You chuckled as you thought about the elder. ya he was still a ladies man.
"Cant we-a just send him-a back?"
"Sorry no. This might be what was supposed to happen and if we send him back, it can alter history as we know it. After all one man can change the course dramatically."
"But that means ____-chan that..."
"Yes, herr Beilschmidt, your stuck with us."
You laid there in your bed as you listened to the small quite apartment. Tonight was interesting. The boys looked at you like you were insane as you traced every inch and examined every stitch of his uniform. Just to have an SS uniform in 'good' condition was extremely rare. But to have on in perfect condition!!!! well with some mud and what not....it was a true priceless treasure. You even examined every groove in his Iron cross and other metal accessories.
He asked you if you were okay but Kiku just told him to let you do what ever you were doing as they prepared Dinner. It must have been very awkward since the man was intimidating but he had a gentle side to him, at least enough for the boys to be alright around him, especially Feli.
You managed to find some of Matthias' clothes that he left behind, and thank the lord they fit Ludwig. Soon you all ate dinner, then Ludwig went on a major OCD cleaning of your kitchen. Now it was 4 am and he was sleeping on the couch.
You didnt know how to explain it but it felt like you knew Ludwig all your life, and you knew Kiku and Felinciano felt the same.
"man what am i doing?"
You slowly questioned yourself as you black cat Blitz jumped off the bed and scratched the door. Strange he never scratched anything, he was to prim and proper for that. You sat up and looked at him. Soon his ears moved in that certain way and you got his message. Sitting there in silence you heard something that sounded like whimpers?
You silently got up from your bed and walked over to the door. Placing your ear on the door you could definently hear whimpers. In a burst of frenzied emotions you ripped the door open. Jumping from the sudden movement was Ludwig. He sat up from the couch and looked at you and looked away.
The moon light danced perfectly upon his face, perfect enough for you too see he was crying.
"Soory i didnt mean to vake you."
You walked over to him and grabbed his hand pulling him along.
"Vhat are you doing?"
"Taking you to bed."
You looked at him as he looked you up and down and blushed. Soon he looked away and tried shielding his eyes. You looked at him and wonder what he was doing, soon you did a comb over your own appearance and for once blushed.
There you were in your mini shorts and T-shirt with is ripped off sleeves and rips going down the sides, you were only wearing your loose sports bra.
You panicked and grabbed his blanket wrapping it around you. jeeze, now a days it was perfectly fine especially if it was PJ's but you deffinently knew women never showed so much skin. Heck it was bad to show your ankles in the late 1800's before the turn of the century.
You must have shocked him senseless.
"Sorry about that. anyways im not going to just lay there and here you cry out here alone. Now come on."
You grabbed his hand again and almost hoisted him right off the couch. He caught hims self from falling and stood up. He grunted as you jerked him towards your room.
He just stood there looking at you as you closed the door.
"Well go on get in."
"Dont worry its not the 1940's anymore. Feli sneaks into my bed when he has Nightmares and most of my guys are friends so we would usually share a bed when we slept."
You watched as he looked at you rather shocked. Dang.
"Okay i dont mean it that way its just...just get in."
You blushed madly as he walked over and got under the covers. Soon you followed and layed there looking at him.
"Touch me i kill you."
you laid there quietly as you listened to his still hiccuped breathes. You could tell he was really trying not to cry, but he was probably really scared.
You took a deep breathe and held it as a little bit of courage for what you were about to do. You extended your arms and wrapped them around Ludwig.
He looked at you as your drew him into your chest. You rested your forehead on the top of his as your left arm served as a pillow for him, and as you ran your fingures through his hair.
"Vhat are you doing."
"This helps Matthias when hes a drunk crying mess. So if i can help even if its just a little bit then im willing to do it."
You blush intensified as his arms wrapped around your waist, drawing you into him more as you both laid there embracing one another.
"Vhy are you helping me?"
"because even though the Nazis did in humain monstrous things, i know that the men fighting were still affected with everything.
I also know from Gilbert that you only joined the SS to insure the safety of your family, also you really did not have a choice. Gilbert told me that you two were regular foot shoulders, Cannon fodder.
Then one day a SS commander came to your battalion and saw you two. He ordered that you a "pure" arian be brought into the SS and that you and your brother should be protected for you were to be apart of the master race and what not.
He also told me that you two never worked in the camps, you were only strategic generals for the western front.
So why bother giving a man who has been through enough more to trudge through?"
"Vill i be able to go back home?"
"To your time?"
"Sorry Luddy no. I cant do that."
You looked into his blue eyes as tears fell down from them.
"because that can alter history. your just going to have to adapt to our time. I will of course be by your side the whole entire way."
You held him closer than every as his face found a comfortable spot in the crook of your neck.
You smiled gently as you felt his arms tighten around you as a response to the nickname you gave him.
"I'll call Gilbert to come tomorrow alright. but for now just sleep, im here."
For most of the night you just laid there running your fingures through his blonde hair. To think one of your favorite stories that was told by Gilbert was coming true. To think that this tall brute of a man was still like an innocent child when it comes to sleeping. To think Gilbert did this for him when he was a child, or when they were on the front.
Now all you had to do was help Ludwig with the road ahead. It was going to be a long trip.
