WAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIITTTT!!!!!!!!! Before you start reading, go down to the description and play the song that's there while reading this.


I am dreaming tonight of a place that I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know
It's a long road back, I promise you

       
Ludwig Beilschmidt sat huddled down in a foxhole out in the snowy battlefield front, shivering and doing his best to keep warm. It was December of 1944 and Ludwig was one of two hundred and fifty thousands troops sent marching across an eighty-five mile stretch between southern Belgium and Luxembourg. Well...there had been two hundred and fifty thousand men originally. There was no telling how many had been lost by now in the previous days of fighting. But for now, all was silent and peaceful; it was now about one o' clock on Christmas morning and a temporary truce had been called by both sides.

I'll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please, have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree

       
You moved about the house, smiling that gorgeous, angelic smile of yours as you put the finishing touches on decorations and other such little things. Your (h/c) hair was tied back with a red ribbon and your clothes were festive to match the Christmas spirit you had brought into the house. You looked as lovely as ever, especially with a white apron guarding the front of your body. The once-pristine fabric now had smudges of flour, cookie dough, and icing. "Mutti, mutti!!" A little girl with long, wavy (h/c) hair and aquamarine eyes came bounding up to you, demanding to be held. She would be five years old now. You picked her up and kissed her cheek, "What is it, Anke?" Her arms were laced loosely about your neck, "When is Vatti coming home?" "Vatti?" A smaller child, a boy about two and a half years of age, came pattering over to you, clinging to your skirts and staring up at you with (e/c) eyes. You bent down, scooped up the child and nuzzled his fine, light blonde hair, "Come here, Klaus." You sat in a chair, holding the children and smiling sadly, "I don't know when Vatti will come home... He'll come as soon as he can. He promised."

Christmas Eve will find you
Where the love light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

       
Ludwig bolted up into a sitting position, looking around. His heart sank as he realized that he was still out in the bitter cold of the war torn land. His only company were the dead whose pale and frigid bodies littered the ground like so much garbage. He had seen you, his ____, his beloved wife and the mother of his two children. He had seen every single detail, every curve and dip in your body, the body that he longed to hold and run his hands over. Strands of your (h/c) had been cluttering the sides of your face and trailing down your neck. He wanted to tuck them away behind your ear and nuzzle your neck. He wanted to feel your lovely lips, taste them and catch the hint of the cookie dough that you had undoubtedly stolen a bite from.

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

       
The blonde buried his face into his hands, his shoulders shaking as he sobbed silently. The question his children had asked haunted him: when would he be home? Would he ever even make it back...? Would his final resting place be here, out in the frigid slush of ice and snow along with the other countless, nameless bodies? Slowly, he pulled his overcoat more tightly around him and snuggled back down into the icy whiteness surrounding him. It would insulate him, keep him warm. He let his eyes shut as he hugged his rifle to him. He couldn't go home like he desperately longed to do, but he could, however, dream...

If only in my dreams...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMrMKD… Listen to that while reading the story. I was about to freaking cry while writing this and listening to the song... I'm trying to decide between this and fav.me/d6vhsj6 for a contest submission. The theme is "Winter". :D

They're not too bad sometimes. I don't want them personally, but being around them every now and then isn't so terrible.

Sometimes, but to be a parent... Money loss for the first 12 years, then having complain how bad you raised them, stretch marks, eating like crazy in pregnancy, having to buy butt loads of stuff, and having to do all that stuff... *sigh* I honestly wouldn't mind kids if they were so expensive to take care of... *wishers*And letting me get at least 5 hours of sleep.

Money loss until they're in their late 20s is more like it. :XD: And that's if you're lucky! You get stretch marks anyways from growing. I can't say that part bothers me all that much. Ah well I don't really want them either.

Trench war happened mostly in World War One, but I'm fairly positive that they still had a few in World War Two. :XD:
