~Labyrinth 6 - Finale~
*Romania X Brit!Reader*
The female's eyes fluttered open,revealing a pair of innocent (e/c) eyes.Slowly climbing out of the black and white satin sheets,she met a figure she knew so well,but couldn't put a finger on,as a pair of feathery wings spread from his back and a tiny golden immaterial ring gravitated above his spiky golden locks.
"Matthias?What are you doing here?" she finally remembered the figure,the creature's smile dropping as now his eyes grew wide in amazement.
"How come you know my name,princess?I mean,I am supposed to know yours,but not the other way round!" the angelic male spoke,taking a seat near her on the edge of the bed.
"Who are you?Or better said,what are you?" (Name) questioned,feeling herself getting drowsy as the male approached.
"My name,as you already know,is Matthias and I am your guardian angel!" the blonde beamed at her,causing the female to feel her bravery to drop in the pit of her stomach.
"And why are you here Matthias?" the (h/c) questioned,seeing the angel's face morph into one of concern.
"Because you are wanted back on the Earth!Your friends and your brother are in great danger!" the Danish angel explained,snapping his fingers at which a silvery mirror appeared in front of both.
The said glass emanatted a strange turquoise glow and as soon as the pale hand caressed the surface of it,it cracked into three water like pieces,reflecting the Brit,the Norwegian and the Romanian at the same time.
"They did this in order to revive you,but the creatures they are facing are way too strong!I could send you there to help them!" Matthias went on,pointing to the three scenarios.
"Then,what are you waiting for?Send me there!" (Name) pleaded,clinging onto the Northen male's white cloth.
The Dane sighed,snapping his fingers once again,at which the mirror dissipated into thin air,three keys gravitating above his open palm now.
"You can help only one of them though!The silver key leads you to your Norwegian friend,the golden one to your older brother and the crystal one to your lover!Pick wise!" Matthias said,keeping his palm close to the female's sight.
"What about the one above them all?" (Name) questioned,pointing towards the small rotten key above them all.
"That leads you to all of them,dividing your soul into three parts.Though,you'll have to pay with your own life for picking that one!" the Dane explained,not believing she had actually caught glimpse of it.
Pondering a little bit,the female took a breath,watching the keys,the three different gazes crossing her mind.Lukas was her best male friend and took care of her eversince she was little.Letting him die she had to face his younger brother,which was quite cruel.
Arthur was her older brother and in the same time like a father for her.He hadn't failed her even once and taught her everything she knew.
Life without him would have been dull and lacking sense.
And Vlad...well,Vlad was the apple of her eye,her first and last love,the one who could make her heart go crazy by simply smiling that alluring smile of his.
Reaching her hand above the keys,(Name) put a tight grip upon the rotten,insignificant one in material value,leaving the Danish creature mouth agape.
"I love them in different manners,but love them all nonetheless!Lukas is my best friend,Arthur the greatest brother ever and Vlad the person whom I love with a burning passion!" the female explained her choice,feeling her body fall limp into the angel's arms while her spirit raised slowly.
"Good choice,(Name)!" Matthias smiled softly,taking care of her spiritual body.
Planting graceful steps into the mass of white,the (h/c) went the path the crystal flowers leaded her to,small snowflakes embellishing the locks which framed her porcelain face.
The Northen wind bit into her tender flesh,but strange enough she wasn't affected by the harshness of it - she didn't feel it at all.
Reaching the end of the path,(Name) looked behind,the snow covered ground not preserving her freshly taken steps.
She didn't mind it though,as her beautiful (e/c) eyes caught glimpse of the Norwegian's body,his features peacefull as he slept,having snow as his covers and the strange looking flower into his hand.
Placing the head of the male into her lap,she gently brushed his light blonde locks in a soothing manner,singing the song he taught her a long time ago - a Norwegian lullaby she knew by heart and of which Lukas said it was able to shoo away curses and bad spirits.
Feeling his heavy eyes hit by a big amount of light,he opened them slowly only to be met by (Name)'s soft smile before she finally perished into the wind.
Feeling a delicate touch against his palm,the cursed Freyja flower broke under the pressure ,transforming into a navy blue feather.
Standing from the ground,he hopped on his horse,urging the poor animal to go as fast as he could.
Green vines made it harder to get to the wanted point,but the small form of the female went through them as if it was nothing.Mud clinged onto the delicate skin and fell soon with a splash to the ground.
The atmosphere was humid and it smelt as mold,an aroma she was accustomed to,which she met back to her homeland.
Feeling the air grow colder with each step she took,(Name) brushed a strand of locks behind her ear,shooing off the malevolent immaterial creatures with the simple flutter of her right hand.
In the middle of the swamp,the Brit's body stood without breath and the female felt guilt pinch at her heart.
Making her way to that certain point,she gave the last creature a threatening stare,caressing the pale face of Arthur with the tip of her fingers,placing a ginger kiss upon his cheek.
Unfastenening the pendant around her neck,she placed it against the Brit's chest,waiting until he gained back his breath and his inert muscles started reacting.
Opening his forest green eyes,he caught glimpse of his younger sister's beautiful (e/c) orbs,though they faded as his blurry vision became clear.
Seeking for something he didn't even know,Arthur caught the whimpering spirit into his large hand,applying a little pressure upon it so that it couldn't escape - but with a high pitched squeak,as the sun rays touched it,it transformed into ash.
The Brit sighed at his failure - though his expression brightened when the ash in his hand burst into flames and transformed into a mint green feather.
All the energy which he previously lost came as a boost,helping him hop onto the horse and to return to the meeting place.
Water lapped at the sandy beach,kissing the shore into an agitated manner.The blackened depths of it transformed in pure turquoise as the female gently touched with the edge of her toes the salty water,going more down until it reached her knees,then her waist,her neck,finally engulfing her whole body.
Swimming against the pressure which was applied onto her petite form,the salty water didn't burn her lungs as it did when she was alive and the speed she caught when she has seen Vlad's body imprisoned by algae was an incredible one,hitting the water with her feet,sectioning it with her skilled hands.
Putting the soft palms onto the Romanian's ears so that the cursed song couldn't reach him anymore,(Name) smiled softly towards the one she loved,trying to talk to him.
"Wake up,Vlad!Only those who are not in love can be captured by the mermaid's song!Open your heart and find your own target!" the voice cut through water,a harmony of notes as the female caught the male's hands,bringing him to the surface.
Opening his red orbs heavily,Vlad reached his arms towards the water,to capture (Name)'s small body.But the sea engulfed it all,transforming it into plain foam.
Tears pricked at the ruby orbs,the male's boots skattering sand all over the beach,only to find something there.Capturing the soft pink shell into his pale hands,he taped it twice,the object opening,revealing a rainbow coloured pearl.
The salty wind blew gently above the pearl causing the Romanian to smile softly and to keep it in his palm.
Loosening the grasp,instead of the pearl,a fiery red coloured feather replaced the precious object - though this one was even more precious than the first.
Hopping onto his horse,Vlad urged the animal to go as fast as he could,hope making him coming back to his senses.
"Why?!" Vlad questioned,anger building up.
"I'm not sure!It should have worked!" Lily explained,fluttering her delicate rainbow wings.
"That's-a really bad,isn't it sorella?" the Italian whimpered,trying to reach for the (h/c)'s body.
All the dwarf's expression morphed into sadness,their hopes long gone as the four feathers didn't react,neither did the female's inert body.
"I'm sorry (Name)!Really really sorry!" the Romanian whispered,capturing the girl's frame with his large hands.
Slowly closing the gap between them two with a kiss,the male pressed his pale lips to her soft ones.
Blood running once again through the veins,making the pale cheeks rosy and healthy,heart beating with power against her chest,(Name) gingerly pressed her lips to Vlad's.
The male retreated,not believing his eyes that the female was indeed alive.He waited for her to raise slowly from the glass coffin - which she did,curiously looking around her.
"Wait,wait dad!You want to suggest that you and mama lived a fairytale?" (Daughter's Name) asked,cocking a blonde eyebrow at the Romanian.
"Yes!What's wrong with this?" Vlad questioned,an adorable look onto his face.
"But papa,fairytales are just stories!And uncle Lukas' are better anyway!" the girl pouted,crossing her arms over her chest,leaving as soon as she heard the front door open.
"Don't worry papa!I believe in you!" Dacian smiled towards his father,a seemingly twin young droplet of his,though inheriting his mother's gentle nature.
"Hey sweety,uncle Arthur and uncle Lukas came to see you and your sister!" (Name)'s voice came,at which the small boy reacted,embracing his mother before dashing to the livingroom.
"Well,I guess the Trio is reunited,huh?" Vlad smiled a face cracking smile - one of those which his wife loved the most.
"If you refer to the new magic trio,then you are perfectly right,because Frøydis and Angel came too!" (Name) laughed,causing the male to do so too.
"I thought (Daughter's Name) didn't believe in magic!" the Romanian protested,cocking a light eyebrow at the female.
"If the tale of her mommy,Nora and Elena practicing spells wasn't enough,then I don't know what would convince her!" the (h/c) winked,stucking her tongue out.
"Te iubesc,(Name)!" Vlad spinned his wife in their children room,her frilly dress kissed by wind's waves.
"Şi eu te iubesc,Vlad!" (Name) responded in a sweet tone,letting herself guided in the dizzy waltz,pecking the male's lips before heading hand in hand towards the livingroom.
'Call me when September ends,when December powders its snowflakes upon us.Call me when you're sober and ready to love me like that day when I was lost through the labyrinth of my soul.When clock ticked and I hoped for a salvation,for rain to wash away my fears.Though,without even knowing,I'm always back to you!Back to your embrace,to your kisses,to the summer nights when we gaze at the stars and try to count them.There aren't enough stars onto the satin sky to express my love for you.You are the labyrinth of my life which I don't want to escape!'.
