The Longing of the Heart @otherealmwriter
From Lt Col Kirkland

I don't own Hetalia okay? I know I skipped a bit of time on this section but it's building to the big drama coming up. Anyway, enough of this A/N, on with the fic!

April 29th 1917

Dear Mister and Mrs. Jones,

I am a Lieutenat Colonel Arthur Kirkland of her magisty's army and I regeibly have terrible news for you. Back on April 9th at the Battle of Vimy Ridge, an artillery barage began and this ingited the said confrontation. It was during this battle that the Canadian Corps who were partnered with the British Military began an attack towards the German trenches. It was a long and hard fought battle but by April 12th the corps had seized in capturing the objective.

Now the reason I tell you this and write to you is that during this barrage and attack, a Matthew Williams was injured in the line of duty, taking shrapnel to his right side and falling victim to a faulty gas mask during a gas attack. For the past few weeks, he has been recovering in the hospital from his injuries. There were many scares as I had personally become interested in the Canadian Sargent after witnessing his leadership on the field and determination to carry out the objective as directed. I remembered my assignments to obtain procurment contracts back in the states and remembered your Mister Jones, and at first glance thought Mister Williams was you. He explained he was your brother and with this I felt it my duty to personally inform you of his fate, especially after some of the unacceptable behavior my French counterpart Major Bonnefoy had said to you when we last were in each other's presance.

Mister William's recovery has been very fortunate, well as fortunate as one can hope for. He is still fighting infection but he is showing signs of improvement. Sadly however, because of the damage that has been done to his right side and even greater impairment of his vision, as he has lost most all vision in his right eye from the explosion, he is being honorably discharged and sent back to his home in Montreal Quebec in the great nation of Canada when he will arrive there on June 23rd of this year. I have seen to his travel arrangements myself. Let me be the first to express my deepest condolences at this time and if there is anything that I may be able to do to help make this easier on you at this time, feel free to write. I do not know how fast I will be able to see to the request, as we are at war and I have heard from many sources that the United States had joined in this hellscape of a war. While news from the homefront may take a long while to get back to the trenches, words like that spread fast.

In the time I had spent with Matthew obtaining this information needed to contact you, he has told me much about you, more than I had learned from the brief times we had spoken before. Please wish my best to your wife and son. He certainly is an adorable child. May I once again send my deepest condolences at this time.

In her magesty's service,

Lt. Col. Arthur Kirklad.
