Matthew silently strolled through the halls of the grandeur known as the Spade palace, waving his way within the maze it practically was unless you had it flawlessly memorized, making his way back to his room. That morning had been long and tiring, listening to Yao, Arthur, and Alfred lightly butt heads as per their usual while the Ace kept to himself, attempting to enjoy his breakfast in peace. At least it hadn't lasted for long due to Yao whisking the two away to go off and serve their quick royal duties, having left him in quiet tranquillity while he finished his meal. Don't get him wrong, that moment of silent bliss was wonderful, but he already was tired from the day, earning him to hoard himself back up in his room once more. Good thing he had Kumajirou; or, well, he hoped that was the polar bear's name as he was guilty as charged. He could never remember it properly. He let out a tired sigh and gently hugged his beloved pet bear, stroking at its fur.
The jokers had agreed to split up in order to cause more mischief, but Prussia had only one person on his mind; the Ace of Spades, Matthew. Gilbert looked up at the door for a moment before knocking on it, adjusting his hat on his head as he waited for him to open the door. He'd always had his eye on the Ace, but him and Sealand were always causing mischief, so he never had a chance to chase those dreams. Now he could, and he was going to make a move on the other. He set his arms behind his back as he closed his eyes, Kumajirou growling softly before huffing and nudging the other towards the door. He sat down and waited for the door to be opened, the joker waiting on the other side.
Matthew blinked a few times, looking down at Kumajirou curiously for a moment. The polar bear rarely ever growled, much less when somebody had knocked on the door, so it was unusual to him, giving the fluffy white creature a few gentle pats on his head whilst he quietly murmured something about how it was rude to growl at the door when a probable maid or butler had knocked. Of course, he kept the polar bear near him for a sense of comfort, not the hugest fan of talking to others as he had the unsavoury reputation of being forgotten in most situations, especially so due to his soft-spoken voice and nature. With a sigh, the Ace opened the door to greet whomever was on the other side, offering them a small, warm smile. "Hello, how can I help yo- Gilbert?... Oh, please, don't tell me you're going to rope me into one of Peter and your jokes..." Matthew muttered out quietly and suspiciously, leaning down to pick up Kumajirou and gently hold the bear.
"No, no no no, ich würde nie, I promise." The taller of the two held up his hands as if that would help reassure the Ace, the Joker grinning to himself for a moment before clearing his throat. "Besides...I'd rather spend time with you than prank you." He spoke honestly, smiling lightly at him as Kumajirou growled at the Joker again. The polar bear didn't exactly trust either of the Jokers, although Peter, the other Joker, tended to carry the type of treats that the bear absolutely loved. Gilbert's eyes flicked down to the bear and he growled back, the two of them didn't [i exactly] get along. However, he settled his focus back on the other male, humming lightly. "What do you say? Would you like to spend some time with me, my dear Ace of Spades?" He offered gently.
Matthew trepidly glanced between the two, visibly warry just by the sound of them growling at each other, taking a second to digest and understand what he had been told. "O-oh, uhm, suuure...? I do have one tiny request though... If you don't mind," The Ace continued to softly mutter out, gently petting away at Kumajirou as an attempt to calm the bear down and get him to relax, quietly sighing when it didn't work as well as he had planned. "[i Kuma, please, he's trying to be nice, so it wouldn't hurt you to try as well,]" He whispered to the bear, petting his head a little more before looking back up at the Joker. "Uhm, somewhere quiet would be preferred... This morning's meal was, erhm, [i louder] than usual, and I'm sure you know how people forget about be when I'm in a crowd of any sort."
He nodded and bowed a bit. The Ace was a royal, and far, FAR above the Joker in rank. Kumajirou snarled softly but listened to the Ace and quieted down since he didn't want his friend to be upset, his little tail wiggling softly as he closed his eyes with a soft sigh. Gilbert was happy to lead the other to the gardens, one of the quietest places in the castle as he looked back at him. "Is this good?" He asked out lightly, offering him a seat next to him as the Joker hummed and looked away to the gardens. "I'm glad you came to spend time with me, you know..." He hummed out as he looked down at him, Kumajirou squirming from the Ace's arms before laying down beside him silently.
"Well, you've been kind with me thus far, so I don't see why or even [i how] I could have said no to your offer, Gilbert." Matthew softly commented with a small smile, the Ace still gently petting away at Kumajirou as he didn't want his friend to go back into that snarling and growling episode he had seen before; the Canadian was going to do everything in his power to keep the polar bear happy, because, after all, he did love the bear. "Besides, we haven't spent much time together, so it's the least I can do to make up for that fact. Or, at least I don't think we have... Uhm... Oh geez, now I'm forgetting if I've spent time with you before or not, I'm terribly sorry..." The Ace muttered out, looking down to the ground in slight embarrassment and frustration with himself, murmuring small things to himself under his breath such as ''the guy who gets forgotten constantly is now forgetting things, oh dear...''
"Hush." Gilbert hummed softly, putting an arm around him before rubbing at Matthew's shoulder. "I'm not exactly meant to be a [i memorable] face, I'm only supposed to be a jester for the kingdoms." He hummed out as Kumajirou narrowed his eyes at the German, but huffed and looked away in order to stay calm. Gilbert moved close as he put his arm around him further, although he was being gentle with him and giving him enough space to scoot away if he was uncomfortable. Prussia's job was to be a Jester, someone to make people smile and laugh, and he [i definitely] wanted to see a smile on the precious Ace's face. It would make the Joker smile too, and probably make him laugh too.
Matthew only furrowed his brows a tiny bit, evidently not entirely satisfied with the answer he was provided with, especially since the topic of forgetting was sincerely touchy when it came to him. "Hey, you're memorable to [i me]; I remembered your name even though we hardly talk, that's got to count for something at the very least I think..." He continued to mutter out with a quiet huff, pursing his lips together in a small pout. The Ace didn't seem to mind getting an arm wrapped around him, if anything, appreciative of the small bit of physical touch he was shown, typically not given much by anyone other than his beloved polar bear.
Gilbert looked down at him before humming and nuzzling at Matthew's cheek, smiling softly. "I appreciate that very much, my liege. You're very memorable as well, I'm lucky I get to serve under you." He hummed out as he held him close, ignoring his instincts that screamed at him to move away from the Ace. He may be a mere Joker, but that didn't mean he couldn't give the Ace a good date if Matthew wished it. Gilbert hoped he would, especially since he'd had a decent crush on him for a good while. He sighed happily as he closed his eyes and nuzzled into him, petting his hair and whispering to himself in German. It was all good things of course, he'd never even [i dream] of insulting Matthew, much less in his native tongue.
Matthew couldn't help but drop his pouty face quickly, almost instantaneously, to be replaced by a soft and warm smile instead. One could easily tell how happy and close to flustered being addressed made him, as if he was the only royal the Joker served, even if he knew all too well that was far from the truth. Still, it brought him a small dose of serotonin to hear nonetheless, only adding to his contentment with being pet and nuzzled at. "I'm not the only one you serve, Gilbert, so don't make it sound like that's the case!" He lightly giggled out, gently leaning into the touch that was presented to him. "You serve [i all] of the four suits' royals, might I kindly remind. ...Though, that does remind me of something. I've been meaning to ask you, but is there a special reason you hang around the Kingdom of Spades so often? I could have sworn Arthur wanted you gone; he's scary when he gets angry at someone, especially so you..."
"Mmmm, yes, there is." He hummed out before smiling as he got an idea, booping the Ace's nose. "Buuut you'll need to discern who it is from clues if you want to know, your majesty~!" He chirped playfully, Kumajirou glaring up at the Joker as he huffed. The Joker was interrupting his sleep and he was annoyed by that, but the jester seemed not to notice. Or, well, didn't care, more like. He nuzzled him again as he snickered softly, then moved back as he cleared his throat. "First clue, he lives in this castle." He grinned lightly, hoping that Matthew'd be able to figure this out.
Matthew visibly perked up a little and smiled a touch more, excited by the fact Gilbert was making this a guessing game for him to play. Sure, keeping people entertained was a Joker's responsibility, but the Ace was thankful and joyous about it nonetheless. He loved to play lighthearted games every now and then, after all, it cheered him up even if he was already in a good mood. "This castle?" Matthew repeated as he slid a hand over to gently pet Kumajirou's head upon having noticed the polar bear glaring up at the Joker, quietly getting to thinking for a bit. "As in, [i inside] the castle, or on castle grounds? Only royals live inside the castle; the maids and butlers have their own quarters..." The Ace softly muttered out, looking back to Gilbert with the hopes his question would be answered or that he'd get another clue from him.
Gilbert hummed as he tapped his cheek, tilting his head. "Inside." Was all he said before hugging one of his knees, knowing that it narrowed things down significantly but also knowing that Matthew would figure out that he was flirting with him soon enough. He thought it was funny when Matthew got flustered, he thought the Ace was adorable beyond any measure. He sighed happily as he closed his eyes, trying his best not to swoon as he thought about the fact that Matthew could return his feelings. He'd harbored these feelings for a while, and he really hoped the other would understand just how [i b a d l y] he'd fallen for him. The Joker knew that it was generally frowned upon for a royal to court a mere Joker, but at the same time, he felt that they could push that aside for the sake of love.
Matthew hummed out, soon doing a little ''detective's work'' and got to thinking about who Gilbert was most likely hinting towards, still gently petting away at Kumajirou who comfortably laid beside where he sat. Well, given that the King and Queen were together, he ruled out Alfred and Arthur instantly, including Peter considering the boy hopped around kingdoms more frequently than the other Joker did; and there was also Yao, though Yao had made it inadvertently clear he was utterly obsessed with the King of Clubs even if he had never said so himself. Which left just himself; the only other person remaining of royalty from the Spade Kingdom. Matthew froze up for a second and turned as red as the famed Hearts were supposed to be, slowly raising a hand to point to himself as a flustered and silent way to ask if Gilbert had been referring to him.
Gilbert supplied only a nod in return to Matthew's silent question, humming lightly as he smiled down at him. "As smart as ever, my liege~" He flirted gently, smiling more at him as he leaned in and nuzzled him again. "Du bist so wunderschön..." He whispered to him before pulling back and ruffling up Kumajirou's fur, humming softly while closing his eyes to wait for his Ace's reaction. He expected him to scream or even sic Kuma on him, so he was waiting for it.
Matthew was stunned for a moment, able to do nothing but stay flushed red and eye Gilbert in a bit of awe. Good thing he had chosen to wear a scarf that day, as it provided him [i something] to hide his face inside rather than in his hands since they were currently preoccupied with gently petting his polar bear friend. Before he gave Kumajirou much of a chance to aggressively react to the revelation, though, Matthew scooped him up in his arms and tightly held him- or, well, tight for what he typically did, but he didn't want to hurt the poor thing so he kept it a tiny bit loose. It took the Ace a few breathless moments of trying to calm himself down internally in order to work up a little confidence, but he eventually scooted closer to the Joker and gave him a swift peck to his cheek, gently resting his head on his shoulder afterwards, keeping his lavender eyes open to keenly watch for his reaction, be it a good one or a bad one.
He blinked in slight surprise before putting his arms around Matthew again, closing his eyes as he let out a soft hum. "Mmmmm...hello there." He hummed slightly before picking him up and huddling around him gently, nuzzling into his hair gently and sighing happily. His eyes were closed now, he was just cuddling with him as gently as he could. The German just seemed to love this already, letting out a comfortable sigh as he hugged him tightly. "meine Liebe..." He whispered out as he purred happily, sighing slightly.
Matthew hummed out blissfully as he comfortably leaned closer to him, a gentle smile gracing his expression as he merely enjoyed their cuddle, and the other's scent too- geez it was almost intoxicating, and it certainly was addictive, something that the Ace had never truly noticed until now. You think you'd notice if your crush smelled like a certain thing most days (or, perhaps now significant other rather than crush, if Matthew was lucky enough), but then again, they didn't spend all that much time together, much to his dismay. Though that reminded him a little of something that was important to ask, especially since he was, well, [i the Ace], and Gilbert was [i the Joker]. So, Matthew looked back up at the German with soft and quizzical eyes, "Are you- uhm... [i Sure] you don't care that, erhm... Royalty typically is frowned upon for mingling with non-royal cards and vice versa?... And before you ask, I uh- I was never a huge fan of that unspoken rule myself, I just wanna make sure that it's alright... For the [i both] of us, y'know...?"
"I don't care. I want to be with [i you,] Matthew." He spoke truly, looking down at him with a stern look as he hugged him tightly. "Please, stay with me..." He mumbled out while kissing his face over and over, being gentle with him as if he was a glass doll that could break at any touch. Matthew was only precious to him, he was the only thing he could focus on at the moment as he held him closer. "You're amazing, you know..." He asked out gently, looking down at him before nuzzling into his hair and sighing shakily.
Matthew's visible worry and concerns seemed to melt away soon after, raising a hand to gently push his glasses back into their rightful place as he offered Gilbert his best smile and light giggle. "I wouldn't dare to leave you, I can pinky promise you that much," He gave a few kisses to his cheeks and nose in an attempt to reciprocate the affection he was sweetly shown, shifting a little bit to softly cup his face with his hands. "If I'm [i amazing,] then you're [i awesome,] Gil," The Ace offered as a fond compliment, having heard and seen a thing or two about Gilbert's supposed ''awesome complex'' as he sometimes heard the other royals murmur about, but Matthew genuinely thought it was an adorable thing, so he would more than [i gladly] help his Joker indulge in it a bit.
