Italy sat in his room, secluded. He had the curtains drawn and the light was off, leaving him in complete darkness. He was holding his head and he stared at the ground with wide eyes. His once bright, amber eyes were dull and red. Tears ran down his face and sob forced it's way out.
"I can't take it. Why would he do this to me," he cried out as fresh tears made their way down his damp cheeks. Another person had left him, betrayed him in the worst way possible.
"You promised you wouldn't leave me... How could you lie like that?" Italy asked no one in particular. "Germany... Why would you do this?"
He screamed loudly, clutching his head harder. He shook violently, rage taking hold of him. His sad tears were replaced with angry ones. He heard a knock on his door.
"GO AWAY!" Italy screamed as he grabbed the closest thing to him and threw it at the door.
"Veneziano! What's going on? Unlock the damn door!" Italy heard his brother yell from the other side of the door.
"Leave me ALONE!" Italy screamed as another sob shook his body.
"Veneziano, open this door, or I swear I will walk out right now and you'll never see me again!" Romano threatened him. Italy froze and sat there for a moment.
Suddenly, something snapped inside him. Growling, he stood up and stormed over to the door. He yanked the door open and lunged at his brother. He grabbed his throat and pinned him against the wall. He smiled wickedly when he saw the surprised look on Romano's face. Romano recovered quickly though, as he grabbed Italy's wrists and tried to pry his hands off of his throat.
"What the hell are you doing!?"
"You chose the wrong words, fratello. I can't allow you to leave me as well," Italy said in a sickeningly sweet voice as he squeezed his brother's throat. Romano's eyes widened in terror as he tried harder to get Italy's hands off his throat.
But that didn't stop Italy. He kept squeezing his throat until Romano passed out. With a satisfied grin, he dragged Romano to the basement and locked him in one of the cells there. Twirling the key around his finger, he let out an evil laugh.
"I refuse to let you leave me, ever. Nobody else is ever going to leave me," Italy said as he left the basement with an ominous smile on his face.
