"Maybe tomorrow, honey." The (h/c) haired girl said as she tried to escape her German boyfriend. He sighed, this had been the third time since their agreement she had turned him down. He nodded and released her from his grip on her hip that kept her pinned under him. She retreated to the living room, seeking refuge in the warm couch.
"_____, why are you so afraid?" Ludwig mused to no one but himself and the empty bedroom. Things were going so well, he surely thought that she'd give it up.
Their agreement was made about two weeks ago. Ludwig and _____ had been dating for three years, living together for one, and were both very much in love. The German had begun to feel more and more attracted to his love in a more intimate sense and the feeling was mutual. The real agreement was just saying that they were both ready to progress to the next level in their relationship. After hearing this joyous new, Ludwig immediately started making advances, hoping that ____ would eagerly return his actions. He had tried three times now, all had failed. Why?! Everything seemed to start off fine with kisses, but as soon as he started to lift the hem of her shirt, she'd shy away and hide from him for an hour. He knew she loved him, and she must have been mentally prepared for sex, or else she wouldn't have agreed. He sighed again and pulled on his discarded shirt. He ran a hand through his messy locks, easing the trails where _______'s fingers ran through his golden locks.
He shuffled out into the living room to find ____ huddled in the corner of their couch, all of her skin, with exception of her face, covered in a thick blanket. He smiled sadly, he was happy that he would be her first and vice versa, but she was terrified of such an uncomfortable situation. That only made the goal ten times harder to achieve.
"Liebe*?" The (h/c) haired beauty tilted her head to see her man standing in front of her. He sat and pulled her into his lap. He stroked her soft (h/c) locks. "If you don't vant to--"
"No! I want to, it's just..." He looked at her. Her (e/c) eyes still held fear.
"You're not ready, it's okay. Really--" She placed her small hands on his broad chest, bringing her to a sitting position on his lap.
"Luddy, don't stop trying." He blinked confused.
"I want this with you, I just..." He sighed and placed his arms around her waist, causing her to jump in nervousness.
"Ve can vait, _____. You're obviously afraid." She glared at him, determined.
"No!" Her (e/c) orbs held perseverance that far outweighed that of a soldier. Not wanting to fight against a brick wall, Ludwig gave up on the argument.
"Fine. If you insist, but you can alvays change your mind." She nodded, admiring how considerate he was.
"Thanks, Luddy." He smiled and hugged her tightly.
"You're velcome, schatzi*. I love you." She grinned and rubbed a hand through his recently fixed hair.
"I love you, too." The (h/c) haired girl glanced at the clock to see it was ten at night. "Bedtime?" He chuckled and kissed her nose.
"Ja." _____ swung herself out of his arms, heading off to the bathroom to change. The German placed his head in his hands, letting a feeling of relaxation wash over him. He stood and walked to their bedroom. After stripping down to his boxers, he slid under the covers, waiting for ______. He sighed for the umpteenth time that night. Why the hell was this so difficult? I can't risk her backing out again, perhaps I should ask for help. He blushed at the thought of that idea, but he'd rather go with his friends' advice before the Internet's. Let's see, I could ask Gil. The situation played in his head, there's no way Gilbert would let him hear the end of that. Maybe Feliciano? He is quite the lady's man. Then how he and Feliciano popped into his head.
"Wait, you wouldn't hurt a virgin?!"
"This vill be impossible." He sighed and tried to think of someone else. Not bruder*, or Feli, or Kiku. Then it hit him, Francis. The German swallowed, that's not exactly the desired route. But, Francis would give him all the information he needed, not tease him, and keep quiet about it. Ludwig nodded, agreeing with his own decision. Why can't I do this on my own, without complication? He jumped slightly when he felt the bed shift. He turned to see ____ clad in a t-shirt that was a bit big and shorts with pink hearts. He smiled and pushed his previous thoughts away. His woman rolled over closer to him. She wrapped her arms around his torso and placed her head in the crook of his neck. She sighed in content when she felt long soothing strokes up and down her spine.
"Don't say anything that can turn into an argument. I'm loving this way too much right now." He sighed and dropped the subject of intimacy for the night. She snuggled a little deeper.
"Thanks for being so patient," he pulled back so he could look into her (e/c) orbs. "I want this, I really do. I'm just shy." He stroked her (h/c) locks.
"I'll vait as long as you vant me to, liebe." The girls frowned, thus surprising the German.
"Why are you so...perfect!?" He chuckled. "I'm serious! You'll go to the ends of the earth, hell, you'd get me the moon! You do everything you can to make me happy and I can't do this one thing." _____ looked down at her chest. Seeing this, Ludwig quickly pulled her in for a hug.
"Hey, you do a lot for me, too, ____. Also, physical intimacy is more than 'one thing'. You're giving a piece of yourself to that one person, all in a matter of minutes, I really do understand, _____."
"Thanks, it's just like you said. I love you and in ready, it's just..." He hushed her.
"Shhh, _____. All you need to know is that I love you. Your heart means more to me than your body ever could." She smiled.
"Gute nacht*, _____. You better get some sleep."
"Yeah, goodnight." She plopped on her pillow, as did he. He rolled over and pulled her so that his body was flush against hers. He wrapped his arms around her and felt her snuggle in his embrace.
~Timeskip brought to you by the AWESOME PRUSSIA! (and Gilbird)~
I awake to the sound of the shower running. Today was Friday. I sighed and walked over to my closet, pulling out a charcoal grey suit. I would go to work at the office, which should give ____ time to...recover from last night. She worked as a barista at cafe near here. Since I don't work weekends and _____ has Saturday off this week, I plan to speak to Francis today after work and "seal the deal" tomorrow. I pushed back some of my messy hair. After satisfactorily laying out my clothes, I walked to the bathroom to get ready, only in my boxers still. I knocked on the door.
"_____, may I come in?"
"Yeah, sure!" I opened the door, letting all the steam out. She stuck her head out from behind the curtain and gave me a cheery grin, her (h/l), (curly/short), (h/c) hair framing her face perfectly. "Morning, Luddy!" I nodded in her direction.
"Guten morgen*, _____. I trust you slept well?"
"Yeah." She pulled her head back in the shower.
"Gut*." I walked to the counter and began brushing my teeth and things of that sort. When I finished, I went back to our room and put my fresh clothes on. When I was finishing with my tie, ____ walked in, clad in only a fluffy bathroom towel. She blushed seeing how I was unconsciously admiring her body.
"O-Oh, you're still here." She quickly sat down on her side of the bed so that her back was to me.
"Ja, and?" I look at her suspiciously.
"Um, nothing. It's all right." She stood and pulled out her uniform, but still did not remove the towel from her body to change. Brushing off her hesitance, I grabbed my briefcase and walked towards her to kiss her goodbye. When I leaned in to kiss her, she turned her head so that my lips met her cheek rather than her soft, warm lips.
"____?" I blinked in surprise. "Are you upset about somezhing?"
"No, I'm just uncomfortable with kissing you when I'm in only a towel...sorry." I smiled at her innocence and gave her a big hug instead.
"I understand. Bye! Have a good day!" I waved goodbye and smiled. She simpered cutely before I walked out our apartment to the parking garage to retrieve my silver S-550 Mercedes. I hopped in and headed off. I pulled into my parking spot at the office and head up the elevator. After greeting everyone, I settled in my office and began my paperwork. Work was uneventful, as usual. My coworker, and best friend, Feliciano slacked off and I helped him with his work. Alfred kept yelling at Arthur and Francis. After working, I made my move to speak to the promiscuous Frenchman. He was walking to his car when I finally caught up with him.
"Hey, vait, Francis." He snapped up at the sound of his name, his blonde locks flipping.
"Hm? Oh, oui*, Ludwig! How can I be of assistance?" I blushed, this was going to be an awkward conversation...well, at least on my end.
"I h-have a question to ask you, but it's kind of personal, may ve talk somevhere more private?" He blinked in surprise before looking me up and down, I blushed again.
"I've 'ad men come on to moi* before, but zis--?" I jumped and blinked in surprise.
"It's about my girlfriend, ______!" He soon nodded and smiled.
"Ah, women. Aren't they zee most magnificent creatures on God's green earth?" He sighed breathily. I furrowed my brows.
"Ja, sure..." I rolled my eyes as he swooned and gushed.
"We can go in my car, if you'd like." I smiled at him.
"Thank you so much." He smiled.
"You needn't worry, mon ami*! I know everyzing about l'amour*!" I hopped in the passenger side of his car. "So what's the problem?" He gave me his undivided attention, willing me to speak.
"First, you have to promise not to tell anyone, okay? What happens here is between you and me." He nodded.
"Oui, I assure you." I sighed.
"My girlfriend, _____, and I have been dating for a while now and we have agreed that we should take zhings to a h-higher level in our relationship." Francis looked confused for a second before nodding in understanding and blatantly stating:
"You mean sex, non*?" I blushed.
"Yes." The Frenchman laughed as I blushed profusely.
"What's zee problem?" His face was now serious again.
"Well," as soon as I began the subject, it all seemed to flow out. "Everything starts fine, but when I try to remove any of her clozhing, she shies away! We've attempted three times now, and I still can't find out what it is." Francis thought this over in his head for a moment.
"She's what I assume to be what you just said: shy. Is this her first time?" I felt strange telling Francis about _____'s personal stuff, but if it helps...and he promised to keep this between us.
"Is she afraid of zee pain?"
"Not from vhat I can see." Francis nodded.
"When things begin, how quickly do they escalate?" I never really thought about that. Backtracking to my previous trials, I found that each time we tried, things went pretty fast.
"Pretty quickly." He nodded and smirked.
"I believe the problem is that you are taking things way too fast for her. Slow them down, then see. You're probably overwhelming her." I nodded. "Anozer thing, be gentle. As you know, she is a woman, not trash to be left on the street. You shouldn't simply screw her, you should...how can I put this without being cliche? Oh, I suppose I can't help the cliche, you need to make love to her, understand?" I nodded in acknowledgement. "If you do that you should be fine. I hope my advice helped! Have a great day, and a great night with ____!"
"Yes, it did help, thank you. Um, and a good evening to you as well." I grabbed my things from his car and proceeded to walk to my car after a wave in his direction.
I headed home. After parking in the garage, I hurried to the elevator to our apartment, excited for tomorrow night. _____ worked late tonight so I wouldn't see her until nine. Since it was still five, I showered and put on some pajama pants. While I waited, I read a book. Soon, it became eight-thirty and I was beginning to feel a bit drained. I decided to head to bed and just wait for _____ there. When she did come home, we exchanged kisses and hugs.
"How was vork, schatzi?" She smiled.
"Very good." I smiled, she seemed to notice my simper.
"Anything special happen today, Ludwig?" I quickly realized my fault and covered it up.
"No, no. Feli just didn't slack off as much as usual." She nodded at my lie and didn't think anything of it. We crawled into bed and I eventually found myself drifting off into slumber.
~Timeskip (sorry) brought to you by the greatest lover in the world. FRANCE!~
It's now currently five in the evening. The day with ____ had been well. She didn't seem to think anything was out of place. We were currently snuggled up on our couch watching a movie. I had no idea what was going on though, the only thing I could think of was Francis' words. Gentle, slow. Gentle, slow. I wasn't going to fail tonight. The credits finally started rolling at about eight. It was now or never.
"Well, that was nice, wasn't it? I think I'm gonna go change into my paja-" ____ started, but when she moved to stand, I quickly pulled her down to my lap.
"You're not going anywhere." I whispered in her ear. She shivered and rubbed her shoulders soothingly, in attempts to make things go as slowly as I could. She relaxed in my embrace and I smirked, it seemed to be working. I turned her so that she was now straddling my lap.
"What are you--" I kissed her quickly to hush her, but not roughly. I nipped at her bottom lip, asking for entrance when I heard a soft moan from her. She complied with me and I slid my tongue in only to play with hers. I kept trailing my hands over her body, stopping at the hem of her tank top. I should ask, I need to ask. I pulled away to ask the question that I dreaded. When she saw me open my mouth, she pulled away and removed the thin article of clothing herself. "I got it, Luddy." I needed to be sure. I smiled.
"Are you--" She leaned in to kiss me fiercely, her small hands reaching up to cup my face.
"Don't make me change my mind, you've already coaxed me into it." I laughed at her.
"Thanks, _____, I love you." I kissed her neck.
"I love you, too, you horny German." She pulled my head from her neck and kissed me again.
