Matthew sighed to himself. Carefully pouring the tea into a cup and then pouring maple syrup into the same cup.
He gently picked up a spoon, swirling the maple syrup into the tea.
Was the only sound heard throughout the house.
Matthew sighed gently.
He had never thought he'd miss Gilbert so much.
The Prussian had left almost a week ago to as he put it, "Rescue his awesome stuff before his less awesome bruder and the loser, Roderich threw it all away."
The chirping snapped him out of his daze.
Matthew glanced down, a smile growing on his face.
Gilbird had hopped onto Matthew's empty hand and sat there.
Gilbert had left Gilbird behind for several reasons.
He mostly claimed Gilbird apparently didn't like flying in planes.
But it was also a way for Matthew to not feel so alone while Gilbert was gone.
Matthew stared at the bird before saying, "It's kinda lonely isn't it?"
Gilbird stared up at Matthew.
"You're his friend...you think I made the right choice by letting him stay here?"
Gilbird fluttered his wings as if to say, "Hell yeah! You are awesome to let the awesome Gilbert and equally awesome Gilbird to stay here!"
Matthew couldn't help but laugh.
Taking a sip of his tea and pacing around his kitchen, Matthew sighed.
"You're Gil's friend...you think he likes me?" Matthew asked, not expected an answer.
"Its obvious he does..." came an answer. "...also who are you?"
Matthew glanced down to see Kumajiro sitting at his feet.
Leaning down Matthew picked up the wiggly white bear.
"Kuma, I've told you a dozen times...I'm Canada...you know this...Anyway how can you tell Gil likes me?"
Kuma's dark eyes looked up at the country. "Well he's been going in your room at night to sleep next to you. And lately he's been calling you lots of weird stuff."
Matthew sighed and said, "That's because he's speaking German...I don't know what he's saying half the time either."
Kuma stared up at him. "Google it then." he said.
Matthew stared at the bear with wide eyes.
"Why didn't I think of that?"
"Who are you again?"
After starting up his rarely used laptop, Matthew was staring at the screen that held Google Translate. "What's one the words he usually says?"
Kumajiro stared at the screen from Matthew's lap and answered, "He says nien a lot."
"That means no, Kuma."
"Oh." Kuma said, sniffing Matthew's hoodie.
Matthew thought for a second and typed in, Vögelchen which Gilbert had been calling him occasionally.
"Hmm...should of figured, it means Birdie." Matthew said, seeing the answer.
"Any other ones to check?" Kuma asked, rubbing his own nose.
"Well..." Matthew trailed off.
He remembered a word Gilbert had used when comforting him not that long ago.
"It's okay Liebe...everything is okay..." was what he had said.
On a whim, Matthew typed in, Liebe
The results surprised him.
Matthew stared blankly at the screen.
"L-love?" Matthew repeated out loud.
"Called it." Kuma said, hopping off Matthew's lap. "Also whatever your name is. Someone is banging on the back door."
Matthew glanced up. "Eh?" he said, shutting his laptop and heading back through the kitchen towards the back door.
Opening the backdoor, his eyes widened to see Gilbert standing there, panting.
One bag on each arm and one noticeably hanging around his neck.
"Thank Gott..." Gilbert wheezed, entering the house and setting his bags down. "I didn't think you'd be back so soon." Matthew managed to say. "Kesese. Birdie missed this awesomeness?" Gilbert said, grinning at Matthew.
He pulled off the bag hanging around his neck.
"Opp- Here hold this." Gilbert said, dropping the surprisingly heavy bag into Matthew's arms. "I need to go piss. That Plane ride took too long...oh yeah, you better unzip that bag so he can finally stretch his legs."
Matthew's eyes widened. "H-Huh?!" he yelped, now feeling whatever was in the bag was moving around. Gilbert gave him a smirk and left without an answer.
"G-Gil! Nom de Dieu..." Matthew grumbled under his breath as he set the bag on the counter and fiddled with the bag's zipper.
Once he slid the zipper open, Matthew's curiosity overcame him and he peered inside the darkened bag.
Meeting the face of a pure white cat with red eyes which chose then to pop out and lick Matthew right on the nose.
Startled, Matthew jumped back.
The cat jumped out of the bag and stretched on the counter.
Matthew could now see the cat better.
It had white fur with red eyes and a faded red scar on its right eye. A ripped ribbon colored in black, red, and yellow was tied around its neck.
It glanced over at Matthew. "Mrrrr-ow?" It meowed.
"A-are you Gil's cat?" Matthew asked, after which he slapped himself in the face. "Of course its Gil's cat, Matthew. Hell it even looks like him."
The cat meowed back at him, hopping off the counter and pacing around Matthew's leg before rubbing its head onto Matthew's jeans.
"Well...hello to you too...At least Erable won't be so alone anymore..." Matthew said, crouching down to pet the cat.

After using the bathroom, Gilbert snickered when he heard Matthew jump. "Looks like Gilkatze introduced himself." He said, glancing in a mirror to see Gilbird nuzzled up in his hair. "Hallo Gilbird." Gilbert said, patting the bird in his hair. "Did you miss zhe awesome Prussia?"
Gilbird flapped his little wings in response. Gilbert chuckled.
Leaving the bathroom to head back to where Matthew was. Gilbert suddenly stopped when he heard a noise behind him.
Glancing over his shoulder, he spotted what had been apparently following him.
There was a cat standing right behind him.
Its fur was light tanned with a fluffy tail and a fluff of light colored mane around its neck.
On first glance, he thought it was Alfred's cat. The one he once witnessed stealing its owner's hamburger the moment he set it down.
But he then realized by staring at the cat that it was in fact a much different cat.
Gilbert smirked, turning to approach the cat who had apparently squeezed itself together to appear smaller.
Not falling for it, Gilbert scooped up the timid cat with one hand.
"Kesesese~ Hallo Matthew's cat. I am zhe awesome Prussia." Gilbert said, stroking the cat's fur.
Like America's cat, the cat had odd markings under its eyes that looked like glasses.
Though this cat was indeed different then Alfred's cat.
It had a much calmer personality, its fur was lighter, and it had a curl like Matthew's sticking out of the fur on its head.
The poor cat was purring nervously in the Prussian's hand.
"Kesesese, lets go see where your owner is, ja?" Gilbert said calmly, walking towards the living room.
Matthew was sitting on the couch, hugging the extremely happy white cat. He glanced up when Gilbert entered the room, carrying a familiar cat.
Matthew's eyes widened. "Erable!" He yelped.
"M-mew?" The cat squeaked in reply.
Gilbert plopped down on the couch and stared at the white cat in Matthew's arms. "Gilkatze, zat is mien Birdie." he said to the cat.
"That's his name?" Matthew asked, scratching Gilkatze's head.
Gilbert nodded. "He is a cat zat is almost as awesome as me!" Gilbert proclaimed loudly, making Erable shiver.
Gilkatze, finally noticing the other cat, slid out of Matthew's arms and climbed up onto his owner's shoulders to inspect the cat better. Gilbert set Erable down on the ground, Gilkatze jumping after the cat.
"Zat cat related to Alfred's cat?" Gilbert asked, glancing over at Matthew. Matthew nodded and answered, "Yeah, Erable and Hero came from the same litter as Michelle's cat. I'm guessing Gilkatze is related to Ludwig's?"
"Ja...West's cat, Germouser is Gilkatze's bruder." Gilbert answered, looking deep in thought.
Matthew glanced up at Gilbert to see Gil was blankly staring at him and asked, "Are you okay?"
Gilbert nodded. "Ja...I'm fine, Liebe. I still can't believe I was able to outrun West. Kesese. Even he couldn't catch zis awesomeness."
Matthew froze up.
That word again.
Risking it, Matthew moved closer to Gilbert, hoping Gilbert wouldn't notice.
He did and he was fighting back a smirk.
"Umm...Gil?" Matthew asked, glancing up at him.
"Ja Birdie?" Gilbert replied, secretly snaking one of his arms behind Matthew.
The Canadian didn't even notice.
"...well um...I wanted to ask...why do you call me the German word for-Maple!" Matthew's words were cut short when Gilbert pulled him closer.
"Ja?" Gilbert chuckled out at Matthew's cut words.
"Why do you call me the German word for Love?!" Matthew basically screamed out before clamping his own hand on his mouth from the shock.
Gilbert snickered and cuddled Matthew closer.
"Cause you're mien, Mattie~" Gilbert whispered.
Matthew's eyes widened upon hearing his actual name from Gilbert's mouth, but didn't try to wiggle away from the grasp.
Elsewhere in the house, Gilkatze was purposely hitting Erable in the face with his tail.
"S-stop it!" Erable meowed, not bothering to move himself.
"Nein, I am zhe awesome Gilkatze! And I live here now so everything is mien!" Gilkatze meowed. "Including you~"
"Mr-Merow?" Erable meowed, trembling slightly.
Gilkatze wiggled into a pouncing position.
Being the brother of Alfred's cat, Hero taught the timid tan cat to avoid that pose.
"CAT NIP!" Erable yelped, taking off like a bullet. Managing to leap over Kumajiro in his wild fleeing.
"Hoser!" Kumajiro yelled after the terrified cat.
"Zhe awesome Gilkatze likes a challenge~!" Gilkatze purred, taking off after Erable with Gilbird riding on his back.
