"Lovino, wake up!" My fratello, Feliciano nearly screamed into my ear, shaking me to wake up.

"What the fuck, Fratello? It's Saturday!" I said, rubbing by eyes and sitting up on the bed.

"Si, si. But Grandpa Rome cooked us a delicious breakfast!" I groaned and stood up following Feliciano into the kitchen, to find our grandpa cooking eggs.

"Ah, Good morning, boys!" He said with that stupid-ass smile he always had on.

"Yeah, Yeah, 'morning." I said under my breath as I sat at the table.

"Well, you're as cheerful as ever today, Lovino!" He said before setting Feliciano and my plate in front of us.

"This looks delicious, Grandpa Rome!" Feliciano said before digging in. Grandpa Rome sat down on the seat in front of us, his face changing from cheerful to almost, sad?

"I'm afraid I have some bad news." He said, looking at us both.

"What is it, Grandpa Rome?" Feliciano asked, looking worried.

"Yeah, spit it out." I said, feeling anxious.

"I-I'm afraid you will no longer be Living with me." He said, looking depressed.

"What?!" Feliciano said, tears forming in his eyes.

"What? Why not?!" I asked, slamming my fork onto the table.

"I told you guys that you two Are actually countries, right?" He asked.

"Si. You told us that we were north and south Italy." My fratello replied.

"Si." He continued, "Well, because of that, you two Are worth a lot."

"Money wise?" I asked.

"Yeah. So your biological parents have sold you to live with the country Austria." He said, a tear rolling down his cheek.

"What?!" I said, standing up. "That's not fair! You have custody of us, not them! Don't you decide what happens to us?!" This can't be real. I thought. This is a dream.

"That's what I told the court, but they refused to listen. Please believe me when I say I tried everything to change their minds. I don't want this to happen to you guys." He said, crying. No, sobbing. Feliciano was crying too. He got up and hugged Grandpa Rome, and I followed.

"When do we leave?" I asked, pulling away.

"You leave tomorrow night."

Like I promised, here's the prequel! I hope you enjoyed it!
