Antonio looked at the badly injured and unconscious Lovino, then back at the note again. He checked the back to find another message. It said :
"Bring the money to Madrid. I will send someone to meet you
You have One Month"
Antonio hung his head. He was completely broke ...
"How am I going to make a million Euros in a month?!" He wailed
He looked at Lovino and sighed
"I should get him to a hospital first" He said
He was about to pick Lovino up, but the Italian's eyes snapped open
"Don't touch me ... you bastard ..." He said, sounding like he was in a lot of pain
"Lovino! I have to get you to hospital!" Antonio said, concerned
"I can make it there by myself, you bastard!" Lovino shouted
He tried to get up, but he fell down almost immediately. He looked at Antonio with an embarrassed look, which turned into his trademark scowl
"Don't just stand there, help me, you Bastard!" He shouted
Antonio sighed and helped Lovino up and took him to hospital, despite his loud cursing. It was clear that he was in complete denial that he lost [Name]. Once Lovino was taken into a Hospital room, Antonio decided it was best to get as much information out of Lovino as he could, just in case it could help in anyway. Lovino's arm was put in a sling and he was covered in bandages here and there
"What happened, Lovino?" Antonio asked
The Italian looked down in shame
"[Name] and I were cooking pasta and this group with masks broke the door down. I tried to protect her but ... next thing I know, you'd come home and the house was wrecked" He said, folding his arms
"So you don't know who took her?" Antonio asked
"I just said, they were wearing masks!" Lovino shouted
Antonio hung his head
"How am I going to raise that much money in a month? It's impossible! I'm broke" He mumbled
Lovino said nothing, which only upset the Spaniard further
"What am I going to do?" He mumbled
Antonio was soon shooed out of the hospital and went home, which was still a tip. He sighed and went to call the police, but his phone lines had been cut and his mobile had been completely destroyed. He sat on the floor and sighed. Then, he saw a tape on the floor. He crawled over to it and put it in the video player,which had a note stuck to it saying "Buy a DVD player, you Bastard!". He turned on the television. He was shocked to see that it was a home video
"What are you doing, [Name]?" He heard his voice say on the tape
"Making something for Papa"
He shed a tear as he saw [Name] work hard on her little project on the screen
"For me? Really?"
"Si, I wuv you, Papa"
He began to cry and hid his head in his hands
"My baby ..." He squeaked
"Papa, look what I made!"
"What is it, [Name]?"
"I made a daisy chain!"
"Oh! I love it!"
His heart hurt as he heard her cheer. He turned the video off and sighed
"This place got owned hard! Maybe my awesome crash landed here or something!"
Antonio looked at the door and saw his friends, Gilbert the Awesome Prussian and Francis ... the pervert
"What happened, mon ami?" Francis asked
"My ... my baby ... my little girl ..." Antonio whimpered
"What about her? Where is the little tyke?" Gilbert asked
Antonio got up and showed them the note
"Harsh" Gilbert said
"Do you have any idea who took her?" Francis asked
Antonio shook his head
"How the hell are you gonna raise that much in a month?!" Gilbert asked
"I don't know!" Antonio wailed
The trio remained silent then, Gilbert suddenly came up with an idea
"I've got it! We hold a concert! Those things can make millions in one night!" He said
"Perfect!" Francis said
"But how do we get people to come? And how are we going to book a venue at such short notice?" Antonio asked
"Leave that to us!" Francis said, winking
