The Final Escape

By WinterSpark

Horror / Mystery

Blurb

Just like before, she began disappearing, even as she held his hands. Italy cried out, not wanting her to leave. "Don't leave me, please!" She shook her head, unwillingly feeling the tears down her cheeks. "I'm so sorry, but you know how it is. I promise, I promise you, I will do my best to free you and your friends, so that you can finally feel the freedom you been wishing for." "Until then," She held out her pinkie. "Shall we make a vow?" He nodded, wrapping his pinkie around her ghostly finger. Italy spoke, silently weeping. "I promise I will find a way out, no matter what the cost." "And I promise to be there with you, until you find the ending you desire." "Together forever?" "Together, until the end of eternity."

Pröłöğūë: Ťhë Ğhö§ť Pŕīñç맧

A woman dressed in a blue and white kimono stood a top of a hill, where her home, an enchanting looking temple lies. Her wavy pink hair beneath her mob cap seemed to move with the wind, touching her cheeks every once in a while. Using her fan that had an intricate design, she slowly fanned herself.

“Hmm..” Yuyuko Saigyouji stared down upon rows and rows of cherry blossom trees, looking deeply in thought. Looking down at the trees her gardener cared for usually calmed her soul, spiritually speaking. But right now, even looking at her domain could not calm the raging thoughts in her mind. With a sigh, the Ghost Princess of Hakugyokurou closed her fan as well as her eyes.

“Yuyuko-sama?” Yuyuko opened her eyes and glanced at her garderner. Youmu Konpaku may seemed as stoic as ever but her phantom half shifted restlessly, as if feeling agitated.

“Ah, Youmu-chan.” She turned back to the trees below, a strange frown gracing her lips. “What brings you here? Shouldn’t you be fetching Yukari?”

“I was about to leave, when I see how... Silent you are.” Youmu bowed her head. “I’m sorry for the intrusion, Yuyuko-sama. I couldn’t help but ask if you are alright.”

“Alright..” She repeated, giving the gardener a gentle smile. “I’m fine. It’s not me that I’m worried about.”

Used to the vague answer, the silver haired woman nodded, though the phantom half dipped it’s head. “I see.”

“I’m sorry I didn’t give you a clearer answer, Youmu-chan. It’s just... complicated.” Yuyuko shook her head. “Thank you for asking. I always knew you cared, despite how emotionless you are.”

“Yuyuko-sama!′

The ghost princess giggled, but even that died quickly. She went back to staring at the cherry blossom trees as Youmu bowed. “I shall take my leave, Yuyuko-sama.”

A nod was given as a response. “Please be fast, Youmu. Even though this has nothing to do with Gensokyo matters, it concerns a supernatural power.”

And just as the gardener was about to leave, she heard her mistress whispered.

“Apparently time in Gensokyo flows differently than the Outside World.”

Chapter End~


A rather short prologue, don’t you think?

Anyway, this will be a crossover between Hetalia and Touhou, as you can see. But I will not be using the normal, canon crossover, no. This will be a HetaOni crossover. Bless that game, no matter how many tears I shed due to it.

This came to me in a rather unexpected way. As I was listening to Insanity (Italy and Germany version) I began to think of how to create a crossover that isn’t.. the same, ya know? Then I began imagining how Italy and Yuyuko would interact if they meet and it just expands from there.

Updates will be irregular. Just an early warning. With all the things happening in real life, I’m busy as it is.

Another thing, chapters will be longer, I promise.
