"Kaoru! Put (f/n) to sleep, aru!"



"Noooooooooo! Don't leave me alone," you beg.



"It's late." China says.



Hong Kong, your older brother, stepped into the room. He walks over to you and wordlessly offers his hand.



"Kaoru, don't make me go," you whine, terrified.



China sighed. "You need to get over your fear of the dark, aru. You're four years old."



"I was afraid of the dark," Kaoru says.



China blinked. "That's different."



Hong Kong shakes his head, causing his long, choppy locks to fly around. You hesitantly place your hand in his, and he turns toward the door. You both walk up the two flights of stairs to your room. You pull out a pair of pajamas from the bottom of your dresser and run to the bathroom to get changed.


When you ran back to your room, Kaoru was sat on the edge of your bed, seemingly in deep thought.



"Kaoru?" you ask.



His head snaps up. "Yes?"



"You're still here."



He stares at you.



"Why are you still here?"



"You said that you were afraid of the dark."



That made you pause. Was he staying in here with you so that you wouldn't be afraid of the dark? That's so sweet of him!



You hop up onto your bed and tuck yourself in. He sat on the chair next to your desk, which was near your bed. He flicked off the lamp on the desk. Immediately, darkness enveloped the room. It was already scaring you. Anything could be in here now, you think.



Hong Kong seemed to notice how nervous you were. He sighed and stood up, walking over to you and kneeling down next to your bed.



"Everything's okay," he whispered.



You stared at him, tears brimming in your eyes.



He lightly grasped your hand and started to sing softly.



"Sleep, my love, and peace attend thee,
All through the night,
Guardian angels God will send thee,
All through the night.
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping,
I my loving vigil keeping,
All through the night.



While the moon her watch is keeping,
All through the night,
While the weary world is sleeping,
All through the night.
O'er thy spirit gently stealing,
Visions of delight revealing,
Breathes a pure and holy feeling,
All through the night."




He looked you dead in the eyes and said, "I'll stay all night with you if I have to."



You smiled. "Thank you, big brother. 我愛你."1



His gaze softened. "我愛你, sister."2
Here's Hong Kong for :iconheartoffiresoulofice:! I couldn't find a Cantonese lullaby that had the lyrics and the translation, and Google translate doesn't have any Cantonese, I think. So, since Hong Kong used to be an English colony, I made the lullaby in English.

1- I love you

2- I love you

If the translations are incorrect, please tell me!

Comments are appreciated, but not necessary.

Hetalia is not mine.
Neither are Hong Kong or China.
I don't own you.
But I DO own the story.

Excuse me while I die of fluff-overload DR
My big brother never sang to me when I was younger, but he did let me sleep in his Room with him if I was scared or sad...then I turned five and he began to be really mean and abusive...
But hey, I still have good memories with him, right?

The only thing I was told as a child was this bedtime story



There once was a boy who liked to suck his thumbs
His mom asked him to stop but he didnt
So she cut off his thumbs
Now he has no thumbs



Mom: goodnight sweetie!

Yeah, I really didn't get anything pleasant as a child either. My mother would tell me that if I jumped on the bed, I'd fall and break my neck, and that the monsters in the hallway would get me if I got out of bed. Thanks, Mom.
