Russia x Reader
You sneezed several times in a row before you could reach for a tissue.
Your friend Ivan was helping you out today since you were sick.
He handed you a couple of tissues.
"You are okay, da?" He said, a thick Russian accent coaxing his voice.
You nodded and blew your nose, making a loud 'horn' sound.
Your head was killing you, your throat felt like you had swallowed broke glass.
All you wanted to do was go into hibernation for as long as your body would let you.
Of course, that would be impossible because humans can't hibernate.
So for now you were stuck in your house, letting your friend take care of you as if you were a
Althought on the inside, you didn't necessarily mind having his company.
Infact, you really enjoyed it!
You'd never tell anyone this, but you cared deeply for your Russian friend.
Most people thought he was scary or creepy, but you saw nothing but sweetness when you
looked at him.
That cute smile he always had on made you want to smile along with him.
It made you sad when you found out how utterly lonely he really was.
He feared that everyone around him would leave him, something you feared FOR him.
But you knew he'd never be alone, because you'd always be by his side.
Whether that'd be as his friend...or possibly more.
Not that he'd ever like you back.
You yawned quietly and stretched out your arms.
"Tired?" He asked.
You simply nodded as you rubbed your eyes.
"Alright, I'll be downstairs if you need me" He said, starting his way out of the bedroom.
But you had something else in mind.
"I-Ivan...." You called out weakly.
He turned to you "Da?"
You blushed slightly, not from the cold, but from embarrassment.
"C-could you stay h-here?" You asked shyly.
It was his turn to blush, his cheeks tinging with a light pink.
"Of course sunflower"
You scooted over so that way he may climb in beside you.
He wrapped his arms around your torso and pulled you to his chest.
You burried your head in his chest, and fell asleep soon after that.
"Sleep well, sunflower" And with that, he dozed off along with you.
You slowly opened your eyes, still in Ivan's tight embrace.
"I see you're awake"
You looked up at him and nodded.
"Did you sleep well?"
You replied with just another nod.
Your heart was beating so fast, you felt like it was going to burst out of your chest.
He separated himself from you and got out of bed.
"Are you feeling and better?"
You didn't respond, you didn't realize he was speaking to you.
Either that, or you just didn't want to answer.
You sniffled quietly to yourself 'I-I shouldn't be c-crying...'
He turned to you abruptly "What's wrong sunflower!?"
When you didn't give him an answer he pulled you into another tight embrace.
After a few minutes of complete silence, besides your sniffling, you finally spoke
"I-I'm sorry Ivan...."
He looked at you, his eyebrows furrowing in confusion "Why are you apologizing..?"
That's exactly what you didn't want to hear, you took in a deep breath and spoke.
"I love you..", you mumbled shyly, the three words that would determine your fate with Ivan.
His eyes widened, he looked down at your small form in his arms and leaned in slowly.
You blushed furiously, not knowing what he was going to do.
His lips brushed against yours, and he whispered "? ???? ???? ?????", before kissing you
with unintentional force, but packed with love non-the-less.
He backed away from you a bit, an adorable blush coating his cheeks.
After processing all that had just happened, you wrapped you arms around his neck and
smiled "Thank you!".
He chuckled and looked down at you "For what?"
In a nasally voice you replied "For loving me".
