"I like these, they look-a really soft." Italy took a deep smell of the flowers he was holding. "They don't-a smell very good though. Maybe we should pick something else out." He wrinkled up his nose and put them back on the shelf. "Why don't you choose something, I keep getting the stinky ones." You and Italy were at a local greenhouse looking for some new plants to put in your garden. Italy had managed to blow everything up with a grenade a few weeks ago and you two were just now getting around to fixing it.
You looked over the flowers and picked out a few of your favorites. "You know, you blew my bench up too. We should get some furniture to replace it. I don't have any grass either, we're going to need that too."
Italy laughed and scratched the back of his head. "Yeah, I blew a lotta stuff up didn't I? I really shouldn't be messing with explosives. Just get what ever you need to make your garden look all nice again." You spent the next hour or so picking out replacements for you garden. "Okay, I think we got everything we'll-a need, you all ready to go?"
"Yup I think so. Let's just hope we don't come across any shrapnel while we're working." After making your way home the two of you started reconstructing your badly damaged garden. It was taking quite a bit more time and effort than you originally thought it would. Before long you realized this was something that was going to take much longer than one afternoon. It was already close to dinner time the only think you two had finished was installing the new grass. "Italy, I don't think we're going to be done any time soon. Maybe we should just head in for the day."
Italy wiped a bit of sweat from his brow and nodded. "I think you're right, I'm-a getting really tired, but at least you have grass now." Italy placed the new bench you picked out earlier in the fresh grass and sat down next to you. "Maybe tomorrow we can work on the flowers, I don't want them to die you know."
You nodded and gave him a glass of lemonade. "That will work, thanks for your help Italy." After a moment of resting Italy headed home for the night. When you woke up the next morning you heard a loud noise coming from outside. You quickly dressed and opened the door to see what it was. There was Italy, adding the finishing touches to the garden. You had no idea how he'd managed to get all that work done by himself in so little time. It was only around breakfast time. "Italy, how long have you been here, did you do all this by yourself?"
He whipped his head around in surprise and stared. "Well, I never really left last night you know, I-a just waited until you went to sleep and got back to work. I felt-a really bad for blowing everything up, so I wanted to hurry and make it pretty again. Do you like it?" It was everything your garden had been and more, He'd put a ton of work into it and it was obvious. He even managed to get a little koi pond in.
"I love it Italy, Thank you so much." You squeezed him in a tight thankful hug.
Italy hugged you back. "Vee, I'm-a really glad you do.. I'm-a going to sleep now, that was a lot of hard work you know, and I'm not very good at working." With that Italy passed out on your shoulder, snuggled you tight and began to drool.
