You felt dizzy, lightheaded and very tired. You must have hit your head on something. ((Note to self, don't stay up reading Dreamtalia. In the dark.)). You shook yourself back into your senses and looked around.
You were in a dark place, didn't feel like your home. You felt the floor below you. It was grass!? You looked around at the most familiar place. Where have you seen this before? It looks like it came out of a dream, or more so a nightmare.
You get up slowly, the pain in your head ceased to exist now. Were your dreaming again? This didn't make any sense, you just remember a sharp pain then........nothing? You looked at the tree you were resting on. The dark clouds made it look evil very sinister.
You gulped loudly, you've seen this tree before. But, not from a dream you had. But a dream that......!!
"Ciao~ Hello there." said a voice behind you. That confirmed your suspicions, this was Italy's dream. More like Shadow!Italy's nightmare! You back away slowly from the man. His pale ice blue eye meet you (e/c) eyes.
"Something wrong?" he said sweetly, his sharp tooth grin sending chills down your spine. Sure he looked cute and handsome on a picture, but up close is a different story. He looked like a madman, a wild-eye gaze that could freeze the most fearless person.
You back away, "N-no, Just wondering where I am?" you asked him. Shadow!Italy smiled at you again, you felt like death was upon you. He advanced to you, you could feel the cold emitting from him.
"I just want to play with a fan of mine." he said cutely, you gulped again. A fan, you never thought they were real. Then he took another step to you, you took another step back.
He grinned evilly, "And you know what the best part is?" you shook your head, then tripped on a rock. He bent down face level to you. His breath smelled of pasta, almost unbearable.
"You won't wake up for a while, didn't you wonder why your head hurt?" he asked innocently, now that you thought about it. What happen to Italy when he went to bed? Your eyes widen, you were in a coma!
He nodded as if you read your mind, "Yes~ Now how about we play?" he asked you, you shook your head harshly. No! You've read stories about him, his 'play' means two things.
"Why? I like all kinds of games, my favorite is Tag~." you now felt sick to your stomach, what dose he want from you? He brushed away your (h/c) hair from your face. His grin grew wider, you could see every sharp tooth. You could feel your face grow pale from fear.
"So," you gulped, where's Germany when you need him? Shadow!Italy's eyes widen at you his grin turned into a smirk.
"Germany? He right behind you." he told you, you whirled around to see Germany....with a widen smile. A cold ball formed in your gut, crap! Shadow!Italy put a hand on his shoulder.
"He wants to play also," he looked at you with pleading eyes. "Please~" he said like a child wanting a toy. Call yourself crazy, to you decided to make a deal with him.
"If I win, you have to let me go." she told him, his smiled grew as he looked deep into your eyes. with a low and dark tone, he told you this.
"And if I win," you felt chills go slowly down your back. "Then you have to stay, forever.". Is it worth it? Your friends always said you were good a games. A cold hand touched your back, he wanted an answer. You nodded to this, he turned back into a grown man acting like a child.
"Great, lets play~" he said, he turned around an told you the rules.
"If you manage to not get tagged in the next.....fifteen minuets. Then you win. I'll give you a ten second head start. Germany can help me." you forgot about the German behind you. you smiled at him, even though it was completely fake. He seemed to be happy, but almost scared at something. What did he do to him?
"And remember," you looked at him, his smile seemed cracked and dead.
"No cheating." he whispered, you nodded to this. You had to give it all you got, otherwise it was goodbye real world. Though many fangirls wouldn't mind, they haven't meet him face to face yet.
And then the game began, and you took off. He giggled very ominously, he was done counting. A voice echoed through the nightmare.
"No matter where you run, or where you hide. this is a place I made for you. I can find you. Run (Name)! RuN~!".
And that is just what you did, you ran fast. the trees seemed to never end, jus thte same thing over and over. Purple mist surrounded your feet, moving out of the way as your feet hit the ground. You must find a place to rest.
You leaned against a rock and let your breath come out. You were a little tired. You went to sit down when the sound of walking caught you. You looked behind the rock slowly to see a German with a smile looking for you.
You gasped under your breath and pushed yourself against the rock. The German country giggled like a kid.
"(Name)." He sang sweetly, very beckoning. Through sheer will you didn't move, no matter how sweet his voice sounded.
"Italy will find you soon. It's better to give in, I lost and so will you." he sang softly, so that's what happen to Germany! Shadow!Italy changed him, but how? Cold enveloped your body, and you sprinted away. The sound of his giggles faded. You were too busy looking behind you, that you didn't see the man in front of you.
You hit him head on, you feel back he didn't. You looked up to see a sharp tooth grin; and one white pale eye and one electric blue staring into yours. You gulped softly, he wagged his finger at you.
"Only one more minuet." he said sadly, you shivered in fear. His smile flatten, and his face grew serious. He bent down to your face, his cold breath hit your face.
"I'm surprised you lasted that long, not many do." he confessed, but you knew your fate was sealed. Then his smiled again, not a evil one. But a warm, child like smile.
"Tell you what, you impressed me. So," he started and touched your head. You felt dizzy again, like when you hit your head.
"I'll let you go." what? This didn't make any sense! Why did he, what's the catch. Cold breathing stirred in your ears, tickled them. You felt the need to giggle, but your head hurt to much.
"But, next time you fall asleep, you have to play with me." he said, that made your heat drop. He wrapped his arms around you, the shadow arm numbed your right arm. You felt weak all of a sudden, voices started to reach your ears.
"See you soon (Name)~ Will have more fun later." he sang to you, then the world around you fade away. And the voice started to become clear.
"(Name)! Sweety, wake up!" that was your parents. Your mom was shaking you lightly and your dad staring at you. They smiled once your eyes open again.
"I was so worried there." said your mom hugging you, you looked around. You where back home. But, the dream felt so real. Your dad smiled at you, and handed you an ice pack.
"Took quiet a bump there little missy." he said with a chuckle, your head hurt. You mom hugged you again you showed your pain. She let go and said sorry.
"We about though that we would have to take you to the emergency hospital." you shook your head. Told them you just bumped your head when you went to get off your laptop for bed. After some more hugs they finally left you to sleep.
You dapped the ice pack onto your head. It was a dream.....Right? You looked at your laptop and open it to see a picture of Shadow!Italy. You went to close out of the site, no more reading that for a while.
But just before you did, your screen went black. think it was virus you wen tot shut it off the hard way. But something stopped you. As a sentence formed in the black. Written in dark purple and red.
WaNnA pLaY, wIlL hAvE SoMe FuN. mE aNd YoU~
You quickly shut it off and curled up in your blanket. you haven't felt this scared since you were five. The feeling of someone watching you from behind was never real. Right? When you were little it was never real. So why would it be now.
Your brain said no, but your other sense said yes. What did you listen to?
You turned around soundlessly, only to fall over. Asleep.
What you saw before that was a electric blue eye staring at you. A shadowy arm and hand, complete with the half face shadow. And a grin of pure insanity and loaded with sharp teeth.
That all together sent you back to a place, that you would be visiting ever night now.
