Ivan's Journal 2

I do not own Hetalia okay? I got a decent response to this story and it is a kind of challenge to write it in this format. But anyway, enough of this A/N on with the fic!

June 17th 1914

(from the diary of Ivan Braginsky)

Sometimes I swear Fredka would be lost without me. I mean at the office he is a very good employee but he can be very easily distracted. Despite this, he was one of the boss's favorites and best performers in the firm's cases and affairs. Part of the reason when Mr. Seward took me on, just off the boat that I marked him as my rival. He just seemed so undignified for the job and I was determined to show Mr-Son-of-the-Mayflower as he bragged to me when we first met. Claimed he had an ancestor in every major American war, and relatives on both sides of the Civil War. Apparently there was a crazy brother of one of his grandfathers who joined the Confederacy and that is all that he will say. This just enticed me to show him up even more, much to Mr. Seward's frustration.

However, I knew it was this that made me certain that he should be with my sister. She would be taken care of and I know how many are looking at recent immigrants, especially from Eastern Europe. Although I wish he would stop trying to get me a date. I am fine by myself and I have to now take care of Katyusha. I worry she will remain a spinster if she doesn't get better taste in men. She does work as a seamstress as she tries to save up to live on her own, but she is too trusting for her own good and things are so expensive. I tell her she does not have to move out, I am happy providing for her, but she does not agree. Some of the new ideas she has been exposed to…. But I digress. I did manage to embarrass Fredka at lunch the other day. Asked him when he was going to make me an uncle and he turned bright red in the face and spit his drink out all over one of our associates. I do think he and Natalya would make wonderful parents. Nothing would harm the child. They would want for nothing. Much better than if we stayed back in Russia. Any time I do get news from there, it is never pleasant. I wish we didn't have to leave, but if we did not, we would be in a very bad situation. Tensions are rising all over Europe….

So how was that? Good? Bad? Short? Long? (for a journal entry.) Let me know in a review. I'm going to try and get the others entries for this day up today. Just depends on how I am feeling. Anyway remember to read (well you just did) and to review. Ciao for now
