Ivan's Journal 17

I do not own Hetalia okay? I am looking to wrap this up soon. These last few chapters will be what does that and if you want me to do something like this focusing on Matthew and Katyusha as a kind of spin-off sequel let me know. But anyway, enough of this A/N, on with the fic!

September 15th 1919

(From the spirit of Ivan Braginsky)

Well this is a weird thing by mortal's standards but after seeing Fredka tell my grave what he thought and what I have seen since my passing I can say I am proud of my family and how they pulled through. A fun fact about dying, it was the heart attack from the septicemia that did kill me but once everything ended, it was like falling asleep and there was no more pain and I could see everything I wanted to know about those on Earth with just a thought. But none of you are spiritualist in that sense so I will tell you about what I think of you. I am glad that Katyusha finally found someone that will treat her well. I find their story kind of like a cheap romance novel where the nurse takes care of the injured veteran and they fall in love, but I guess all that matters is they love each other and he will take care of her. And well, I can't make people see that you really did see my ghost. One of the downsides to being dead is that you can only really know what the other side holds when you are there but the human mind is often more perceptible to such things in states like fever or distress and often when there is great emotion attached to those the deceased has. I guess that is why I appeared to you first. But at the same time one has to accept the notion in the first place. Which surprised me with you Fredka. You were so terrified of ghost stories.

Nikolai is being such a good big brother. I wish that I could have met Anya and Ivan in person, also meet Matvey and Katyusha's child but I can still watch like I have before. I admire you all and while I cannot be with you, I will be in your heart and that is all that matters. Those who love us never really leave us. As much as you are a part of my life, I will forever be a part of yours. I will see you again one day, as morbid as it sounds but reuniting with your loved ones is quite the phenomenon. And I will watch with joy at my family until we meet again. Take your time with that one. I want to see you all happy and living life to the fullest.

So how was that? Good? Bad? Short? Long? Let me know in a review. I figured I would wrap this up with just ghost Ivan's thoughts to leave the story on a feel good ending. I also am thinking like I said in the previous A/N about doing something like this with the 20s centered around Matthew and Katyusha. I don't know how fast I'll get to that but I'm toying with the idea. (That and there is a severe lack of CanUkr...) I don't have much else to say here, so remember to read (well you just did) and review. Ciao for now,
