I don't own Hetalia okay? Now some of these chapters will be told from people who haven't been before, but that's to show how the story is progressing. But anyway, enough of this A/N, on with the fic!
June 20th 1917
(from the diary of Katyusha Braginsky)
It has been a little under a month since little brother was shipped over to the war. I have been left to keep his house in order while he is away and currently to look after Natalya and Nikolai while Fredka has to go up to Montreal to pick up his brother who is being sent home from the war. Why he couldn't come straight into New York is beyond me. Must be easier, correct? Or it may be some silly army regulation I don't know about where he must go back to where he lived first. Although to be fair, they do have to pack up some of his things and bring them with them. Through what few letters they did have before he was injured, Fredka and although it was reluctantly on her part, Natalya did agree that if something like this were to happen, they would help by letting him stay with them. They have quite a spacious house with a few spare rooms so that Matvey does not have to feel like he is imposing. I know all about that feeling though.
Natalya did insist that she could handle the household with her and Nikolai without having to come over, but honestly I needed to have someone here with me and honestly I wanted an excuse to see my favorite nephew again. He's just so darling and most often when Fredka or Natalya brought him over before, Ivan was the one he played with more often. And Natalya is too proud to admit when she does need help. Maybe if she wasn't pregnant I would believe her, but she is and this one seems rougher than her last one. Call me crazy but I am thinking they will have twins this time around. I swear she looks twice as big as when she was going to have Nikolai. That was the reason she didn't want to go with Fredka to meet with his brother after all. I don't blame her honestly. Besides it's nice to have someone in this house besides a big grey furry cat that Vanya gave me to keep me company. Cats aren't people.
So how was that? Good? Bad? Short? Long? (at least for journal entries?) Let me know in a review. The story is progressing more so you'll see entries and letters from people other than the main 3, but mainly Katyusha and Matthew. So anyway, remember to read (well you just did) and to review. Ciao for now,
