Alfred, who has been told to shut up and grow up all his life, fears the scary and powerful Ivan. But to prove he is strong and to protect his friends, he attempts to face his fear. Ivan, a lonely Russian whose immense power has caused him to be very lonely and feared, hates the childish actions of Alfred. But what happens when they are stuck in the same house with each other for only heaven knows how long? Read to find out! This is a America x Russia fanfic of the anime Hetalia. I do not own hetalia nor the characters, but I do own this story. PS I use human names and hints of yaoi but nothing serious. ~Edit~ I finally updated the cover xD I didn't like the old cover, so I fixed it :D thanks!
