Hetalia The Beautiful World ~ Japan
If there is one thing that is consistent in our long lives is that time never ceases changing. We have placed that superficial label to try and place others on top, but really it is not strength in the sense we know it to be. Those days of strength defined by actual power of force is long since gone—or maybe it is just thinly veiled by that superficial title? I could not say.
You once taught me that when work and stress becomes too overwhelming, the best remedy to calm the mind is some soothing tea and warm food. Perhaps now I can relay the same advice to you?
I know the passage of time and the waxing and waning of power better than almost anyone else left on this planet. You don’t have to tell me. It was probably all superficial, but it matters to me. Power is… always important. It’s not something one is ever able to ignore. I’m obsessed with it, like many others.
Doesn’t matter. I’ve eaten already; it’s not good to eat too much. I should probably just rest. I’ve been treating myself unfairly lately in that regard.
Of course…Power matters to all of us, even the ones that try to deny it. That’s what we are here for, right? To promote the power of our nations and be the symbol of that strength?
No, it is not. You are right about that. Go get some sleep then. The next day awaits you with more work to do—but yes, I don’t need to tell you of your responsibilities. I just figured tea would be a nice way to vent your stress.
