The Longing of the Heart @otherealmwriter
Matthew's journal 6

I don't own Hetalia okay? I don't have much to say but hold onto your heartstrings. Anyway, enough of this A/N, on with the fic!

October 1st 1918

(From the diary of Matthew Williams)

Writing a journal entry while looking after 3 children is tough. Especially when the two youngest keep thinking you are their father. They keep saying "da da" to me. They say it to Al too, but I swear they get us mixed up. Nikolai corrects them though saying "Uncle Dyadya Mattie" I think that is actually confusing them but Nikolai is learning both Russian and English from his parents. Hopefully he didn't learn the myriad of swears that Natalya let out today at Major Bonnefoy. Luckily Katyusha talked her down because I was busy with Al at the same time. I was over at her house when Katy got the news and dragged those officers along. I hobbled along as fast as I could after her as I knew it was not going to be pretty. Once they calmed down, realized that murder and violence wasn't going to make Ivan appear again, Al took Natalya to their bedroom and they've been up there crying in private since.

I had to explain to Nikolai what happened. I know Al should have but honestly he's rather distressed so he'll do better when he calms down a bit. Nikolai asked "Is Uncle Dyadya Vanya coming home?" I had to tell him no, he got killed in the war. But I reassured Nikolai that Ivan is looking down on him from heaven and he is to be a good boy and protective big brother to make sure that his now guardian angel uncle will be proud of him in heaven. Seemed to help the kid out. I mean how do you explain something like death and war to a kid like that? It's going to be a rough few days around here as they hold the funeral and such. If they need help digging the grave, I will. I know Al will probably work himself to exhaustion, Natalya will want to try so herself but I have got to remind her her kids need her at this time and Ivan wouldn't like her falling from that duty. This is their shell shock moment and like they helped me with mine,I should with theirs. If there is something that I know Natalya and Al have in common it is their passion for those they love.

So how was that? Good? Bad? Shot? Long? Sad? Let me know in a review. I don't have much else to say here so remember to read (well you just did) and to review. Ciao for now,
