My chest is empty and it hurts and I remembered that all my soldiers are gone—not that I /forgot/ no but it’s stronger now and it hurts and I don’t like it make it go away—
/hugs him even tighter
Okay, Petru. Listen. Try to calm down, alright? Everything’s okay now. Uncle’s here, just try to calm down. Your soldiers are fine, they’re okay.
/patpats back shhh baby shhh
No—no! My soldiers are all gone, they were all pulled out ages ago and they’re dead and gone and—and—
/he remembers everything, so he’s panicking and crying and he’s terrified that the other’s going to get mad and scold him and tell him that he’s making a mess of things
/but really when you’re six years old and you can’t even handle these types of things, you tend to freak
Uncle Uncle I just—please, just hold me tight—
Shhhhh, Petru, shhh. Uncle’s here. Everything’s alright.
/no, no one will tell my baby that he’s making a mess of things they will have to deal with me first before telling that
/smooches all over again, still patting his back
There, there. Shhhh.
It’s scary and sad and I hate it and I need Mister Buns but he’s at Lovino’s and Feliciano—and—and my house too but I can’t get him because Arthur’s there and I’m scared of him because he abandoned me and I don’t want to go there but I need him because he’s my very special animal friend and—and—and—
/he hiccups and shoves his face into the other’s shirt, before wailing out loud
/oh wow Peter you haven’t freaked out like this in about three weeks
/brave baby is brave awww yeah
/but seriously he’s scared
And—and all of them are dead and gone and why did you—why did you lie to me about that?
