Reaching a hand out from under the cave made by your duvet, trying to find your phone. Patting your nightstand, you knocked your alarm clock off onto the floor before you found your phone. Then you pulled it under your duvet slowly, unlocking it. You had messages from almost all the countries you saw most, asking where you were. Groaning, you ignored all of them. What time was it? 11:43. They shouldn't be in a meeting now, right? Closing your eyes, you tried to think about when the meetings were for today. Finished at 11:00... Then the next didn't start until 12:00... You should be good. You pressed a few buttons, and lifted the phone to your ear. It rang a few times, then...

"WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU?! I'VE BEEN WORRIED SICK YOU BASTARD!" The sound of your worried boyfriend's shouting made you smile slightly.

"Hey Roma..." You croaked. "I'm sick. S-sorry I didn't call."

"...Hmph. What do you want?" His voice was considerably more gentle now.

"I want to see my boyfriend, idiot. Will you come over when today's meetings are over with?" You sniffed.

"I'll come over right now. Veneziano's the important one, and I'm bored-a stupid."

"Aww, thanks Romano~!" You said, though you broke off into a coughing fit.

"...Are you okay?" He asked quietly.

"Y-yeah. Sh-shouldn't you ask if you can leave?" You asked.

"Hmph." His next words were muffled, so you knew he'd covered the microphone, but obviously not that well. "Hey Veneziano, cover me! (c/n) is-a sick and she wants me to go!"

"Oh, but-" Italy's reply was cut off.

"Just hold on, okay? Do you want me to bring anything?"

"...No. Ooh! Tomatoes!" You heard him laugh softly.

"Sure, okay bella. Give me half an hour, and I'll-a be there."

"Grazie Roma..." You smiled.

"Nessun problema. Ciao." He put the phone down and you took it from your ear, biting your lip and smiling at the same time. And people wondered why you loved him. Putting your phone under your pillow, you settled back down for the half an hour it would take him to get there.

-----

    "Hey bella." Somebody was shaking you gently, and you opened your eyes slowly. "Bella?" You pulled down the duvet from over your head, looking up at the figure sat on the edge of your bed.

"Morning Roma..." You moaned.

"It was when I got up." He gave you a slightly amused look. "But you look-a dreadful..."

"Thanks..." You groaned, sitting up in bed.

"I brought those tomatoes you asked-a for. There were twelve when I set off, but..." He trailed off.

"Ten?"

"Nine." He smiled slightly, something he only ever did for you. Smiling back, you took one from the bag he set on the bag and looked at it. So perfectly round and shiny, a rich, deep red colour. "I brought them from home, so they should be better than the ones you can buy around-a here."

"Aww, personal Romano tomatoes~!" You grinned, taking a big bite out of it and chewing happily. He watched you for a moment. "Hey Romano." You said, swallowing. He hummed, lifting his head questioningly. "Sing for me."

"Pfff, what?! Are you for real?!" He asked, looking at you like you were crazy.

"Yeah. Why not? Please? I'll sing for you when you get sick." You gave him your best puppy eyes.

"What would I even sing?" He asked, shifting uncomfortably. You looked at him, a grin spreading across your face. "No..." He shook his head.

"Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato!" You sang, grinning at him.

"You're not going to make-a me...?" He asked quietly. "Right?!"

"Please! It'll make me feel so much better!" You pouted at him. He sighed, closing his eyes for a moment.

"
Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato. Red on the bottom, green on the top, toma-toma-tomato. Hmph!" He looked severely unimpressed, but as you knew, he'd do anything he could to make you happy.

"There are tomatoes in my pasta. And tomatoes on my pizza. My charming red treasure, how I love tomatoes.

But, wurst and potatoes are heretical things. My brother eats them and just gets more and more macho. What is a Napolitan doing with Japanese cooking?!" You didn't really expect him to say the non-singing parts too, so when he didn't, it didn't really bother you.

"I'll give you another one. I'll give you a beautiful one. Eat a delicious tomato and come and dance with me. Amore!

"Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato. Ci vediamo, ah Romano, I'm south Italy." You looked at him, grinning widely. You could see him trying not to smile at you too, which only made you smile wider.

"
Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato. Red on the bottom, green on the top, toma-toma-tomato. Hmph!" He was forced to look away from you or risk smiling properly. It was the song! It made him want to smile! Plus you grinning at him didn't help much.

"Spain brought some. He brought some from America. My country's national treasure, how I love tomatoes. But, this isn't just for reciting words of love. The wine glass in his hand is always twinkling and twinkling. And when I was an adorable kid back when I was ignored, that dick!" He was smiling now, looking at you again and you grinned back.

"Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato. The Mediterranean sea, too! I'm south Italy!

"I may not be useful with chores, and my brother may be better with the art and trade. And sometimes I may be as dumb as a bird, but I... But I...! CHIGI!" He cried, obviously loosening up a little now.

"Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato!" Grinning, you saw your chance.

"
Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato!" You sang, trying to ignore the feeling you got from singing that made you want to cough.

"
Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato!" He looked at you as he sang, and you took his hint.

"
Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buo-" He interrupted you.

"Uno, due, tre, dai~! I'll give you another one, I'll give you a beautful one! Eat a delicious tomato and come and dance with me. Amore!

"Buono tomato, buono tomato, buono buono ooh, tomato! Ci vediamo, ah Romano, I'm south Italy!" The very moment he finished, you knelt up and tackle-hugged him, your momentum pushing him back onto the bed.

"Yay! See? I feel so much better now!" You hugged him tightly.

"Yeah, well. You owe me, ragazza." He looked away from you, attempting to hide his smile.

"Don't fight it, let it come out!" You beamed at him, trying to coax him into letting out the grin you knew lurked so near the surface. "You are Italian after all."

"Damn you, cagna!" He tried to say, but he was laughing too much.

"You love me really." You grinned, looking down at him.

"Dio knows why! You make me do stuff like this for you!"

"Oh Romano... You do them because you love me, silly!" You pecked his lips breifly before getting up and sitting back where you were before.

    "(c/n) was slowly falling into the despair of a triple-dip recession, and was being ravaged by depression. The country was saved only by the bailout of Italy. It has been stated that 'if these countries were people, they would be in the relationship of boyfriend and girlfriend.' by several world leaders, including that of America, Germany and Spain."

You looked at Romano, grinning. "They really are clueless, aren't they?"
Ahh, when I discover the delights of the Delicious Tomato song! I love it! Here's the version I was using if you want it youtu.be/JNq7YdUlZV0 (Have you any idea how hard it was to find an English dub?!)

Also, I'm open for requests at the moment! But don't be disappointed if I don't get around to yours!  (Country x Reader only please. ;A; )

Hetalia does not belong to me.
Song (Delicious tomato song) does not belong to me.
This fic does belong to me.

YOU CAN NEVER ESCAPE THE TOMATOES! My friend at school is nicknamed Spain and has sung this song so many times that I have had it stuck in my head for at least 3 months. I blame Obama.
