Liechtenstein reappeared downstairs following her brother closely, smiling with relief that you had stayed. When they sat down Switzerland looked at you nervously and you took it as a sign to take charge.
You placidly began to explain the dangers of being out alone, talking to strangers – most of all shifty looking men, while Vash nodded vigorously along with you.
“So you see lily, the world panel made up the law that female personifications can’t have intimate relationships with male humans for our own safety. We can’t get pregnant to another country because they are unfertile but we could if it as a human. That’s really not healthy for us or our country and the law stops our human leaders from taking advantage of us! But either way as long as you follow Vash’s instructions you won’t have to worry about this understood.” You said taking a deep breath after all the talking.
The young girl nodded then smiled and ran over to hug Vash.
“I’m sorry big bruder! I didn’t know that it was that serious! I will never disobey again!” Then she ran over to you and gave you a hug as well sweetly thanking you for helping her.
“Well, I’ll go while you two figure out what consequences are to come. Bye guys!” you said gracefully standing and stretching then walking out.
It wasn’t till later that day that you remembered that you needed groceries. It was later afternoon as you hurriedly parked your car and went to the markets. Picking up a few goods here and there you began to walk to find the butchers when you felt a cold hand grab you from behind.
“Well lookie here! Miss me babe, cause you left a little too quickly for me to say goodbye properly!”
Spinning you came face to face with the brute from earlier that day. Trying to wrench yourself from his grip you reached for the gun in your shoe but he was to strong, kicking your gun from your hand and then restraining your limbs.
You mentally cursed and struggled against him as he pushed you against a dirty brick wall in the dark shadows behind the market stalls. “You owe me doll face, and I know just what
I want!” he sneered at how powerless you were against him. WHY AM I SO WEAK! You internally screamed tears forming in your eyes as you tried to call for help only to have his hand shoved over your mouth making you screw your eyes shut, refusing to meet his hungry gaze.
Suddenly you heard a loud smack and felt yourself tumble to the ground. You cowered in fear, eyes still shut. Then you heard a loud, familiar growl and looked up to see Vash, his muscles flexing under the black wife beater he wore and his fists tightly clenched.
The man who had assaulted you had stumbled back at the intense impact of Vash’s punch; dislocating his nose and making it bleed. Vash stalked forward, his feet stomping noisily on the ground.
“Why you little-“the man went to punch Vash only to have his blow swiftly avoided. He received a strong commando side kick in return and an upper cut punch to the jaw. The thug stumbled back to the ground as you watched on in fear. While Vash was somewhat shorter than the man, what he lacked in height he made up for in strength.
The Swiss man stalked over, pulling you up and into his firmly toned chest. Taking out his gun he glared darkly at the man now covered in blood. “SILENCE! YOU’RE LUCKY I KEPT MY TEMPER! IT’S ONE THING TO TOUCH MIENE SCHWESTER, BUT IF YOU TOUCH MY GIRL AGAIN I VILL KILL YOU!”
Vash shot either side of the thugs head then packing you up bridal style he carried you out and back to his car. “______, you shouldn’t be out alone, it’s dangerous. And I von’t allow anyone to touch you, let alone hurt you.” He said gravely as you as you stood next to the vehicle.
“Vhen I said I needed you ______, I meant it. I don’t think I could take care of Lily vithout your guidance, you don’t know how much she-w-we have missed having you around. I-
I don’t know vvat I vould do vithout you and I vorry all ze time about vhether your safe… I would be able to stand it if someone else took you avay from me, I need you by my side, always…I-Ich liebe dich”
You were in tears by the end of this, never had you heard Vash say so much unless he was shouting at someone! Suddenly you felt his lips brush across yours; swiftly you leaned in making the kiss official.
His arms snuck around your waist, pulling you closer like he wanted to shield you from the world in his embrace. Your arms went around his neck as you both pulled back panting.
Then he removed the white cross from his neck and placed it around yours. “Now people will know you are mine. And if they dare touch you I won’t give them a warning shot!”
