Today was going to be a good day! You were driving over to Russia's house to visit Lithuania. He had been your best friend for ages. Him, you and Poland were a dynamic trio. Poland loved taking you shopping and dressing you up, meanwhile, Lithuania would carry the bags. Poland also knew your deepest secret…you had a crush on Lithuania.
You pulled up to Russia's huge manor and parked the car. You opened the door to get out, but you didn't see where your hand was. That's right, you slammed the door on your hand and fingers.
"OWWW!!!" you hollered in pain and pried the door open to retrieve your injured hand.
You examined your injuries. Several fingers were swollen, bloody and throbbing in pain. A few nails on certain fingers were cracked and purple. Your hand's palm had a painful red mark across it where it had met your door.
You tightly clutched your bloody hand and knocked on the door with your good hand.
"Hi (y/n), WHAT HAPPENED!!??" Latvia looked down and saw your hand.
"I accidentally slammed my hand in the car door" you rubbed the back of your neck sheepishly.
"Toris!!" Latvia held onto your good hand and dragged you into the kitchen.
"Raivis, what is it? Oh my goodness!!" Lithuania gasped when Raivis showed him your hand.
"she accidentally slammed it in her car door" he explained
"We need to get that bandaged!" Lithuania gently led you to the kitchen table and pulled out a first aid kit. He gently began cleaning the blood off. It stung painfully but you bit your lip as tears came down. He wrapped your fingers and hands up before carefully testing each finger to see if it was broken. Your thumb, index, and ring finger were broken. He slid a little metal finger cast on each digit. He looked up and noticed you crying.
"Hey, no need for tears" he murmured and brushed your cheeks to rid them of the salty water.
"It just hurts is all. Now I can't write or pick anything up" you muttered, you injured the hand you used to write with, and sad to say, you were not ambidextrous.
"It's ok. This should heal in a few months" he added
"But what'll I do? I can't pick up anything or drive home, or," Lithuania cut you off by patting your head and gently ruffling your (h/l) (h/c) hair.
"I can take care of you. I'll be your hands" he murmured and smiled
"Thank you Toris, but I don't want to be a burden" you explained
"Trust me, (y/n), you are most certainly no burden to me. You're my best friend, we stick together and have each other's backs. Right?" he asked and you smiled and nodded.
"I'm home! Oh, привет (y/n)! What happened to you?" Russia greeted and looked at your bandaged and casted hand.
"I accidentally slammed my car door on it" you blushed and felt stupid for your mistake.
"Ouch, I hope you will get better" Russia smiled and patted you on the back.
"Is it ok if she stays here, Mr. Russia? She can't drive home, and if she went home she'd have trouble around her house" Lithuania asked and looked up at the taller nation
"Da, of course she can. Stay as long as you need to" Russia smiled, Russia wasn't a bad guy, he was just misunderstood because of his cruel child-like nature. He only irritated you when he would vent his anger or boredom out on the Baltics.
Lithuania took care of you delicately for the past few months. He would carry things for you, open doors for you, even fed you when you had difficulty gripping a fork or spoon because of your hand.
Finally you were hoping to get the bandages off today. Toris gently unwrapped them. There were scars and bruises, but nothing serious. Your broken fingers had healed nicely and you could move and clench your hand into a fist.
"I believe you're all healed now" Lithuania smiled at you and tossed away the bandages and wraps. You leaned over and hugged him tightly.
"Thank you so much Toris, you took such great care of me" you murmured and savored the hug.
"It was no trouble at all (y/n)" he chuckled
"I'm….I'm going to miss be able to spend so much time with you" you mumbled into his shoulder.
Lithuania gripped your shoulders and pulled out of the hug. His green eyes met your (e/c) ones.
"(y/n), I'm going to miss you too. You see….I….I love you!" he blurted out and blushed
"I love you (y/n)! That's why I enjoyed taking care of you! I loved being helpful to you and having you around here with me. Please don't feel weird because of this….if you don't feel the same. I don't want our friendship to be awkward or destroyed because of it. I want to take care of you always" he murmured and blushed darker and turned his head to avoid your gaze.
"Toris….I love you too!" you giggled and he turned his head to see if you were lying or not. Your hand pressed against his cheek and you pressed your lips against his. He stiffened for a second, then sighed happily and kissed back. His arms went around your waist and your hand stayed on his cheek while the other rested on his chest.
Toris' heart felt like it was going to burst with joy. The love of his life felt the same way about him as he did for her.
"Now that you're hands better," Toris slipped a ring on your finger carefully.
"Engaged when we start dating? Isn't that a little early?" you asked
"It's a trick ring, shows other men that you're mine and it's a way of asking, promise me you'll marry me someday?" he asked
You rolled your eyes and yanked on his shirt and kissed him again.
"I wouldn't be kissing you and telling you I love you when I'm not willing to marry you" you muttered and pecked his cheek.
"Eduard, you're on my foot!!" two voices quietly bickered. No doubt Estonia and Latvia were spying around the corner of the kitchen.
"No, no you two. Let Lithuania and (y/n) become one in peace!" Russia chuckled and the two began pleading and begging while a faint 'kolkolkol' could be heard as the voices grew more distant.
"You do know we'll have to tell Poland, right?" you asked and Toris froze where he stood.
"I forgot…oh no!" he sighed
"What?" you asked
"He'll see the ring and drag you to a dress shop to get you a wedding dress!" Toris added
"Maybe he can wait a bit before we give him the news…" you giggled and kissed Toris' jaw.
"More time for us" he chuckled and gently kissed the back of your hand. He kissed each finger as his kisses trailed up your arm, shoulder and neck before meeting your lips.
"I will always take care of you" he chimed into the kiss and held you close to him.
