You stared at the television, trying as hard as you could to keep your eyes open. You wanted to stay up and watch all the cool, adult shows that came on at night with your “Uncle” Gilbert. However, every night you fell asleep on the couch and your father, Ludwig, would carry you upstairs. You never thought it was very fair, but it wasn’t like you could stop him if you were asleep. You thought they maybe if you could stay awake, he wouldn’t make you go to bed.

“[Name], perhaps you’re getting a bit tired?” Ludwig asked you, a slight grin appearing on his face.

You simply shook your head ‘no’.

“Not at all?” Ludwig continued. “Not even just a teeny bit?”

You shook your head again. “Not even a teeny weeny bit.”

Ludwig sighed. “Well, you should maybe think about being tired, because it’s time for bed.”

“What?!” You cried out. “But, I want to stay up with Uncle Gilbert and watch all the cool, grown up cartoons!”

“Yes, but you’re a child,” Ludwig replied, “and children have bedtimes.”

“You’re Daddy’s right,” Gilbert backed him up. “Even your awesome Uncle Prussia had a bedtime when he was a kid.”

You blinked, surprised that Gilbert had actually had rules as a child. You had never thought that he would be one for rules. You nodded, realizing that you needed to have rules, too, considering the fact that your father would be so mad if you turned out like Gilbert.

“Go get ready, okay [Name]?” Ludwig instructed. He picked you up off the couch, stood you up on the floor, and shooed you towards your room.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You brushed your teeth, changed into your [f/c] pajamas, and now, you were finally ready for bed. You were upset that you couldn’t watch all the grown up cartoons, but you knew that you would become an adult sooner or later, so you weren’t worried too much about it.

Ludwig lifted you into bed and tucked you in tight, just as you had always liked. He took a seat on the edge of your bed and gave you a loving smile. He was the best father you could ever ask for, in your opinion, at least.

“Goodnight, little one,” He whispered to you.

“Wait... Daddy?” You asked, “Could you sing me a lullaby?”

Ludwig patted your head. “Of course.” He cleared his throat and began to sing to you:

“Good evening, good night,

Covered with roses

Adorned with thorns

Slip under the covers

Tomorrow, if it is God’s will,

Will you wake again

Tomorrow, if it is God’s will,

Will you wake again.”

You watched your father as he sang gracefully to you. You wanted to be alert and listen to his every word, but you were slowly slipping from consciousness.

“Good evening, good night,

Watched over by angels

In a dream they show you

The Christ-child's tree

Sleep blessed and sweetly

Look for paradise in your dream

Sleep blessed and sweetly

Look for paradise in your dream.”

Your eyes shut and you had finally fallen asleep. Ludwig examined you, using his hand to brush a few loose strands of [h/c] hair from your face. He chuckled. He knew he was pretty lucky, having a daughter like you. He carefully leaned down and kissed your forehead.

Ludwig up from the bed and headed towards the door. He took one last glance back at you, and whispered a few last words before leaving.
   
“Sweet dreams, little one.”
Woohoo, I've actually posted something! :D (apology, I've just been really busy)
This is only my 2nd Hetalia reader insert, so I'm sorry if I've totally butchered Germany and Prussia. I tried man, I really did. <:c
I didn't think of the lullaby, it's a traditional German lullaby that I remember hearing when I was little. It took me absolute forever to find it - I had to be pick, of course - but I found it, and it's so cute.

P.S. The picture is not mine. Only the writing.
