Alluring Alarm CH8 - LatSeaIt had been a little over four years since I had last seen Raivis. He called me at least once a month, so it wasn't like I was completely out of touch with him, but I hadn't seen his face for four long years. I hadn't seen his smile, and I hadn't held him or touched him in so long. I had only heard his voice. But that was enough. His messages were always short, because they were made whenever Ivan was out of the house, but whatever he said was important to me. I got to hear his laughs, and I got to hear his tears as sometimes he just called me and cried. I missed him terribly, but at least we were able to talk to each other.Alluring Alarm CH8 - LatSea by ~Faggoat
I was sixteen now, and he was nineteen. Still, he was older than me. I hadn't caught up; he'd always be ahead of me a little-just by three years. I still lived with my adoptive parents-Sweden and Finland, and Raivis was still living with Russia. He had managed to tell me bits and pieces of what had happened to him, and events of the previous invasion as well. Raivi
Alluring Alarm CH7 - LatSeaI sat on my bed, staring up at the ceiling with wide eyes. Raivis had told me not to come over, and not to call him. That had been a few days ago. I hadn't done so because I wanted to respect him, but I just really wanted to see him. He didn't call me or tell me anything, so I didn't even know if he was over at Russia's yet. I told Papa, who told Finland, but they just said they'd think of something. Yeah. They didn't seem to be all that surprised that I said I loved Raivis, either. At least, Papa wasn't. I saw Finland was a little surprised, but smiled. Too bad I didn't tell them earlier. Maybe things would have been different if I had said anything at all earlier.Alluring Alarm CH7 - LatSea by ~Faggoat
I sat up, pushing myself off of my bed and picked up the phone, my finger hovering over the number panel to punch in Raivis's number. "Peter, please don't call me either, okay?" I could hear his voice force out in a worried tone as I had left his house a few days ago. I had promised I wouldn't, but I really wanted to
Alluring Alarm CH6 - LatSeaI didn't do what I had told him. I decided to leave a few days early, so he wouldn't try to stop me. As much as I knew he wanted to, I didn't want Peter stopping me from submitting myself to Russia. I assumed that he had already told Sweden and Finland about all of this, but I wondered what they'd do I closed my eyes faintly, remembering all of Peter's smiles and all of his cheery spunk. Ah, we had never roasted marshmallows on my fireplace like he had wanted. I guess we'd have to do that in a few more years or so. I still wanted to spend time with him, but that didn't seem to be an option for me. I wanted to see his smile, hear his laugh. I wanted to feel him hold me close like he did. I had finally gotten the guts to tell Peter that the reason I'd follow him around and the reason I was always even shakier around him was because I was nervous about our then relationship. As corny as it seemed, it was a sort of 'love at first sight' scenario-at least, on my part. I wanted to be hAlluring Alarm CH6 - LatSea by ~Faggoat
Alluring Alarm CH5 - LatSeaWe were both sleeping on the floor, sharing heaps of blankets. The room was still pretty dark, but I could see the outlines of his sleeping face. He was breathing faintly, and in the stillness of the night, I could hear him clearly. He had a quiet, deep breath that showed he was truly calm. His eyes were closed and he was sleeping in an odd position, lying on his back but curling to one side. I smiled to myself. I hadn't fallen asleep yet because I had promised to wait until he did. "Don't worry, Raivis," I told him when we first got snuggled in. "I'll wait for you to fall asleep. You'll feel better that way." I had grinned, very sure of myself.Alluring Alarm CH5 - LatSea by ~Faggoat
Raivis had mumbled something like, "Y-you s-sure?"
But I had forced him to relax, and he eventually fell asleep. I tried to look out of his bedroom window from where I was sitting, but a thick curtain was covering it, and only a small corner was visible. It was still really dark out, the glimmering of the stars and the moon were the only s
