This was requested by WritingMyLife12. First I have some explaining to do. Monday and Tuesday I was sick. Wednesday I had to prepare for surgery and I had surgery yesterday. I'm on pain meds and am flat out exhausted but so desperately want to update. I'm on my phone so I apologize for the mistakes. Enjoy.
Canada walked into America's house and hung up his coat.
"America! I came as soon as you called! Where are you?" His voice rose barely above a whisper.
"I'm in here." America rasped from his bedroom.
America had called Canada because he is very sick and wanted Canada to be his hero.
"How ya doing America?" He pressed the back of his hand against the sick country's forehead and pulled away quickly.
"Oh my gosh America. You're scorching hot!"
"Awww Canada, I'm flattered." He gave a weak smile and sneezed into his blanket.
"Not what I meant. Give me a second." He walked into the kitchen, ran a rag under cold water then rung it out.
"By any chance do you know how you got sick?" Canada asked as he placed the rag on America's forehead.
"Maybe?" The longer haired country raised an eyebrow at the answer given to him.
"Well, it may have been but I'm not for sure." America sunk lower under the covers.
"What did you do?" Canada sat down on the bed next to America.
"I may or may not have swallowed a penny..." Canada face-palmed and sighed.
"Why did you swallow a penny America?"
"Well Prussia and Denmark did it so I did to. They were having trouble but I powered through it like a boss!" America protested.
"What am I going to do with you?" Canada softly ran a hand through America's hair and kissed his cheek.
"You could take care of me and make sure I'm okay." He put on his best puppy dog eyes and looked up sadly.
"Okay. I'm going to draw a bath. Can you get yourself some clothes?" America nodded and Canada went to the bathroom and turned on the hot water.
Once the water was pretty hot, he put the plug into the hole and prevented any water from escaping. America staggered in with clothes in his arms.
Canada took the clothes and set them down on the stool.
"Do you have bubbles?" America nodded and pointed to the closet where Canada retrieved the bottle which had an American flag plastered on the front.
He poured some in and turned off the water.
"Get in." America hesitated and looked at Canada.
"Don't worry. I won't look." Canada covered his eyes and he heard America get undressed and submerge into the bubble filled water.
"Better?" Canada peeked through his fingers to see him nod his head.
"Great. Let's get to work." He pulled up his sleeves and grabbed the shampoo bottle.
"Are you sure dude? It's kinda weird..." America scooted away a little and hid his face in the bubbles.
"Come on. We did this all the time when we were little. Now get over here before I get your myself." Canada said as he squirted the soapy substance into his hand.
America shifted a little then went back over, but not before dipping under water and getting his hair wet.
"Strawberry scented. Just like when we were little. You haven't changed a bit." Canada chuckled then sat on the edge of the tub. He worked the shampoo into America's hair.
America's tense form relaxed in the hot water and he closed his eyes.
"Thanks Canada. I'm sorry I mess with you all the time."
"Don't worry about it. How's the water?" He got a glance at America's relaxed form and smiled.
"Really good." America sighed. He yelped when Canada's hands brushed over his cowlick. Canada's hands shot up.
"I'm sorry! I forgot! Are you okay?"
"Y-yeah. I'm fine. Just keep going." He shifted again then glanced at Canada, watching the way the light reflected off his gorgeous ocean blue eyes.
Canada returned to massaging his scalp.
"Okay America. Rinse off your hair." America submerged again then came back up.
"Is Prussia and Denmark sick from eating the pennies too?" Canada said as he slathered up a rag with soap.
"They can eat anything and not be sick. They're Denmark and Prussia." He sneezed making some bubbles fly in the air and also making Canada giggle.
"Let's get you clean." America laid back as Canada washed his face and torso. When he was done, he went to the opposite side of the tub.
"Let me see your feet." America lifted them above water and Canada scrubbed his heels.
"Knock out of dude! That tickles!" America laughed.
"What tickles? This?" Canada did it again and America accidentally splashed the unsuspecting Canadian.
"America!" Canada looked down at his wet form then back at America.
"Oops!" America said then pulled Canada into the tub.
They had an all out splash war.
"Okay! Okay you win!" Canada shielded his face and laughed.
"The hero always wins!" America kissed Canada on the bride of his nose.
"Let's get you dressed." Canada stepped out and held out a towel for America who took it and wrapped it around his waist.
"I'm gonna get you some clothes. Get out of those wet ones." America left the bathroom while Canada stripped and wrapped a towel around his waist as well.
America came back with a white tee shirt, underwear, and pajama pants.
"Here bro." He handed the clothes to Canada and they got dressed back to back.
"You are a handful, you know that?" Canada asked.
"Yeah, but you love me anyways." America crawled under the bed covers.
"Canada? Will you sing to me?" America asked as he pulled the covers up to his chin.
"Okay my hero. What do you want me to sing?" Canada stroked America's hair as he waited for an answer.
"How about the one France taught you?" America asked. Canada nodded and started singing.
"You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You'll never know dear,
How much I love you,
He sung this again and America fell asleep.
"Good night my hero." Canada softly kissed America's lips and smiled.
Did you like it? The song was something my parents used to sing to me when I was a baby. Next I'm going to upload an FrUk one-shot. After that I'm going to work on Nordic 5 Viking one-shots. Anyway, sorry if there are mistakes, the pain meds aren't the best on my brain. See you soon!
