Dark Angel!PrussiaxDepressed!Reader

It was late. You sat out on the balcony of your families lake house and watched the moon reflect off the near glass surface of the water. The night breeze was cool on your face, banishing away the humidity for a mere moment. Not that you minded the humidity. It was something you grew up with so you barely noticed it anymore. You noticed below you that lightning bugs were flitting through the rose bushes, lighting up their red-blue leaves with their green glow. It was a pretty sight but you didn't really feel in the mood for pretty. No, tonight you just wanted to jump of the second story balcony that you were sitting on. Life had thrown so much crap at you over the last week you just felt that it wanted you to die.

First, your mother died in a car accident and your little brother was seriously injured. He probably wouldn't walk ever again, which devastated him because he loved to play soccer. Then your father lost his job. You found out that none of the jobs you applied to wanted to accept you. You're boyfriend of 8 years dumped you because he said that you were too much trouble.  Not to mention, you found out this morning that your dog was going to have to be put down because he was getting too old. And, your fish just died.

So, yeah, life sucked. No one was in the house tonight, dad was at the hospital with your brother and the maid was off today. It was now or never. Even still, you couldn't bring yourself to jump. Your brother and father had already been through so much, you couldn't put them through the loss of a sister and daughter. Not now at least. With a sigh you walked back into your room and plopped down onto your bed. You stared up at the ceiling where a picture of your favorite actor (a/n)'s shirtless poster was pinned. He was smirking down at you invitingly as if you had a chance with him. You let out another sigh.

*(favorite song)*

You blindly searched for your cell, knocking things over in the process. Finally grabbing it you looked at the caller id. It was your best friend (f/n). You answered it.

"Hey _____," her usually chipper voice seemed oddly sad.

"Hey (f/n). What's up?" You were worried now. What MORE has gone wrong?

"Well, ______. I don't think we can be friends anymore…"

You sat up. "What?! You can't be doing this to me!" Even though you tried not to, you started crying.

"I'm sorry ______ but it's just not working out, and I'm moving away to England so… Yeah, I won't be calling you again, better just delete me from your contacts."

"No, please, you can't be doing this to me! Do you know what has happened this week?"

"Yes, I do."

"Then why now?"

"Because, better now then ruin it when you start feeling better. Goodbye _______." The line went dead.

You sat there dumbfounded. How could she just… Anger and sadness flared inside you. Storming out to the balcony you hurled the cell in the direction of the lake. You could hear the 'crack' of it hitting the dock, bounce then plop into the water. Looking down at the patio below you sighed. Maybe you wouldn't die… just get seriously injured. Blame it on being clumsy? Sounded good. Climbing up on the railing you took a deep breath. Heights had never been a problem for you, even now. You brought your one foot too hang in the air. Leaning forward you started to feel your body pitch, the air whistling past you as you picked up speed. Your eyes had closed so you didn't know when you were going to hit the ground. The other foot left the railing and you were free falling. It was… peaceful. That's the only way you could describe it. No sounds save for the whistle of air, no thoughts, no sight, just dark silence.

Suddenly a pair of strong arms wrapped around your waist and hauled you up to the balcony again. You panicked. Did you're father come home without you hearing? He was going to be mad. He was going to yell and scream. Oh, you really didn't want him to yell, you hated it when he yelled. Then you noticed a strange sound. Was it… wings?

A thought struck you. Maybe you did die and you just didn't notice, now you were being taken to heaven by an angel. You were set down and someone moved around you. Opening your eyes you found yourself staring at a very pale, very strong chest. For a moment, you just blinked, not knowing what to do or say. There was a laugh, a very odd laugh, from above you.

"Kesesesese~ What are you staring at fräulein¹?"

You blushed and looked away from him. "N-nothing…" You practically felt him smirking at you.

Black filled your vision and two soft appendages pressed you close to the boy, your savior. Reflexively you put your hands out to prevent yourself from getting crushed. He laughed again and you could feel his chest shake under your palms. Realizing what you were doing you pulled your hands in against your chest and allowed yourself to be pressed against the boys muscular body. With a prominent blush on your cheeks you dared look up at him. Red eyes gleamed in the moonlight, framed by a thin, pale face and silver-white hair. You gasped. He was beautiful.

His smirk grew. "You do like staring at me don't cha?"

"S-shut up! Who are you?"

"mein name ist Gilbert, oder wenn sie lieber die ehrfürchtige Preußen²." You just stared at him. He sighed. "Just call me Gilbert."

"Alright Gilbert. Why and how did you save me?" You tried to push away from him but he held tight.

"I saved you because a Schönheit³ such as yourself shouldn't throw her life away like that. How? Well just look." He released you and hopped backwards onto the railing.

Your jaw dropped. Huge black wings unfurled out to his sides. The span of them was massive. They glistened hauntingly in the moonlight as they shivered. You took the chance to look him over. He was fit for sure, his shoulders very broad, arms the size of your chest and very nice abs. The only thing he wore was a pair of worn trousers. Around his neck were dog tags and there were scars all over his body, suggesting that he participated in a war somewhere. Judging by his accent and the words he used, he was German, but he said 'Preußen' which was… Prussia? So he was Prussian. How strange…

"You have quite a habit there fräulein of staring." You glared at him this time, meeting his happy red eyes. His smirk didn't falter. "Why did you jump fräulein?"

"I have had a terrible week if you must know!"

"I know that fräulein, but why did you jump?"

"I jumped because- Wait! How do you know that my week was terrible?!"

"I've been watching you for a long time _____."

You staggered back, covering your mouth. "Wha-?" How could he have watched you for 'a long time' and you not notice him? … Or did you?

It took a lot of concentration to think about the little things you might have missed when you went about your daily business. You remembered the one time when you were out on the water with your mother, just enjoying the sunrise, when you noticed something on the opposite shore. It was hard to make out at the time, all you saw was white and black before it disappeared into the woods. Another time was  when you had a nightmare, you woke up and felt someone comforting you. You thought it was your mother but the voice was not hers. The male voice was singing softly in a different language… German- or Prussian.

There was one other thing you remembered. When you were really little, you had an imaginary friend. He was a little dark angel that you met out in the woods around your house. For hours on end you would play games, like pirates, hide and seek, war. You would pretend to be explorers that just landed in this area and went out to discover the land. His name was… Gil. Which was short for Gilbert! Oh God… It was him!

"You… you were… my imaginary friend…"

"Well, not quite imaginary now am I?"

"You can't really be here! How… My parents, my little brother, none of them ever saw you!"

"Because I left before they saw."

"Why?"

"What do you think adults would do if they saw their little daughter playing with a black winged boy with red eyes?"

"Oh… right…" you gazed into his eyes. "Why did you just disappear?"

The smirk on his face faded to a sad smile. "It was about time you stopped believing in imaginary friends… And my bruder⁴ wanted me home for a while."

You lifted your hand, reaching towards the boy- no, young man, that had always seemed to be there for you. How had you not noticed someone so important, someone who had always been there in the background when you needed someone to listen. His hand came up to meet yours and your fingers aligned. His long fingers towered over your own, calloused and powerful. Tears started to run down your face. It was him… it was really him.

"Gil!" You rushed up and hugged him.

"Whoa!" his wings flapped to keep the both of you on the balcony before chuckling and hugging you back. "It is good to see you again ____." There was a peaceful moment of silence. "Hey _____? Do you want to go for a little spin over the lake?"

You looked up at him shocked. "You mean fly?"

He smiled a toothy smile. "Ja!" You nodded enthusiastically. "Alright, get up to the peak of the roof and I'll take you." He jumped up to the crest of the house another story up.

With a smile on your face you ran back in the house, up to the third floor, into the attic and finally pulled yourself up to the roof. Gilbert was waiting there for you, a dark silhouette against the moon. Carefully you crawled to him and felt his arms wrap around your waist again. His chin landed on your shoulder and asked if you were ready. All you could do was nod. He picked you up with ease and took a few lunges to the edge of the roof before planting his feet and pushing off.

His wings beat hard against the air and lifted you both up above the treeline. You look down at the few trees below before your vision was filled with rippling black and shimmering white. It was breathtaking. You almost forgot that you needed to breathe as you stared at the reflection of the two of you in the shifting replica of the night sky above you. Spreading your arms out to your sides you laughed, the wind whipping your (h/c) hair out of your face. Gilbert suddenly dipped bringing you close enough to the surface that you could touch it with your fingertips. The spray of the water was cold but refreshing.

After a few more minutes Gilbert set you down on the dock and landed next to you. He huffed and plopped down on the edge and dangled his feet in the water disregarding his pants that were getting wet. You sat next to him and leaned your head on his shoulder. He leaned his head on yours and for once, didn't say a word for the next half hour.
Before you knew it, you were falling asleep on him. Taking you in his arms he made his way back to the house, jumped up to your balcony and laid you down in your bed. Tucking you in he started to walk off. You grabbed at his wrist sleepily.

"Eh? What is it ______?" He turned around, red eyes still gleaming.

"Stay the night… No one is in the house… no one will be back here until noon tomorrow… please stay…" You yawned.

"Alright~" He gave a toothy grin.

You lifted up the covers and slid to the wall, giving him enough space to fit comfortably. He slid in next to you and immediately slipped one hand under your head, the other on the small of your back, pulling you close to him. This time, you didn't resist. He was warm and surprisingly soft. Curling up in his arms you fell asleep to his voice, singing you that little tune from all those years ago. Just before you drifted off you heard, "Ich liebe dich mein kleiner spatz, ich werde dich nie verlassen⁵."
--

*Beep, beep, beep, beep- SLAM!*

You nearly crushed your alarm clocks snooze button. Sprawling out on the bed you slowly woke. You noticed that there was a cold spot in your bed. A sudden feeling filled you, like you had forgotten something important. Sitting up you looked around for what was missing. Last night… What happened last night? You didn't have a hangover, so you hadn't gotten drunk. Wait… your friend has dumped you and you tried to jump off the balcony then…  Black wings… red eyes… that strange, familiar laugh… German- no, Prussian… Gilbert! Gilbert had been here last night! He had been in the bed, sleeping with you. Where was he now?

"Kesesesesese~" You jumped out of bed at the sound and ran out to the balcony and- There was no one there. No red eyes, white hair, smirk or toothy smile to be seen. You nearly turned around when you saw, on the railing, a large black feather and dog tags.
You picked it up and could smell Gilbert. He was here, he was alive… The dog tags felt warm as you hung them around your neck. You noticed a figure on the dock facing you. Just like that morning out on the lake, you could see only white and black, but when you looked closely you saw a toothy grin and red eyes glimmering in the morning light. You waved to him and he saluted back before taking off. Turning around you sighed, holding the feather close.

A door slammed. "_____! I'm home!"

You set the feather down and ran to meet your father. On the way you absently wondered how your father would react to the dog tags dangling around your neck with some man's name on them that he would only remember as his daughters imaginary friend.
