I can't believe this!" You yelled in frustration, throwing the bundle of flowers (red and white tulips) merciless on the ground. "How can he even dare to think that would make everything alright?"
Once again, this particular evening, you felt your eyes water up. This time, though, it wasn't out of sadness, but more out of anger. How can he even try something like this? Flowers, out of all things? You stood above that way too cliché sorry of his. He could try to be all gentleman, if he just wanted to, but you wouldn't fall for that. After all these years, you realized, you never knew what kind of person Arthur Kirkland was. Now you do; and, well, after four years of loving him and putting up with everything he did, this was just too much. You had boundaries. And he should know. But seemingly he didn't. After four years.
Punk!England x Reader Request- The Girl InsideYou sighed; another boring day of simple schoolwork. Well, simple for you at least, seeing as you were known all around school as the most serious student alive. Or at least that's the façade the other students believed.Punk!England x Reader Request- The Girl Inside3 years ago in Romance More Like This
You truthfully loved to have fun, but your parents had really put on the pressure about school. Thus you were forced to hide that one side of you that you secretly loved. That side included a girl that was quite the opposite from the strait A, quiet, and serious girl who had eventually also become a part of you. Yes. The other half of you was the side you'd been forced to suppress by your parents.
The girl inside you who was sarcastic, snappy, couldn't care less about school, and who loved to turn her music up full blast was the one your parents could never know about- or anyone else for that matter.
The only problem about this was that one guy who seemed to know who you really were on the inside. He'd even made some sly remarks about how he'd love to crack

"Hello," I said pleasantly, sticking my hand out for him to shake, "I'm (Name). What's your name?" I quickly do a once-over inspection of the boy. He had shaggy blonde hair, striking green eyes, and overly large eyebrows that looked surprisingly handsome on him. He was also wearing a union jack t-shirt, torn up, black skinny jeans, and combat boots. Looking closer, I also realized he had his ear pierced with a metallic stud; a big no-no in my father's opinion.
"My name is Arthur Kirkland. It's a pleasure to meet your acquaintance, love," he says, taking my hand. But instead of shaking it, he brings it to his face and brushes his lips against my knuckles. Cue a blush from me. He dresses like a

EDIT -- due to the number of people crying over this story, I'll put up a VERY SAD STORY WARNING so that those of you with kind, innocent hearts won't be reduced to tears without first being warned. But if you're tough, read on.
London, England. 2004. War in Afghanistan.
Today was hot. And long. Oh, so very long.
Al had stayed up all night crying like a baby over the 'ghosts in his closet'. And, of course, this had frightened Mattie and, following suit of his boisterous twin, made him start whimpering as well.
You were exhausted and, truth be told, rather irritated with the both of them--although it was really more Al than Mattie--and you had a terrible lot to do today. Load laundry, plan dinner, call Sandra back about working on Thursday, get groceries for the rest of the week--it was only Tuesday--, apparently Al's battery-powered, wailin

"Well, Fine! I don't need you and your stupid ass anyway! Goodbye from your 'Other Lover'!" I screamed while I busted through Alfred's doors and went into my car to drive away far away from that stupid bastard.
My purse, car keys and my money are the only things that will make me happy right now except for the bar I'm heading to. Yes, the great ________ has been dumped by that stupid American bastard for for that whore he's dating now. Or should I mean that whore he cheated on me with.
A quick fight formed until I cut it off and decided to drown my sorrows in a bar. Yes, the most stereotypical way to make you happy after a breakup. That bar has actually been with my thick and thin; whenever I'm sad I always go there. Like my grandparent's death or the time where I didn't pass my final's exam. And now I'm coming here because the one I love now dumped me.
Once I saw the bar's sign in place, I quickly pulled over to where it is and parked my car. It seems pretty full, mostly from na

A Stirring Turn of Events
Before moving to England to live with your boyfriend Arthur Kirkland, you had loved the rain; however, ever since you had moved, your tolerance for it had grown thin. It seemed as if almost every day was spent inside watching rain pelt your little town just outside of London. You sighed, turning your back to the window.
"So, in a stirring turn of events, it's raining outside." You informed Arthur. He looked up from his book and raised one of his bushy eyebrows.
"Is that so?" He asked in a monotone.
"Not that I dislike living here with you, Artie, but does it have rain every day? I mean l can only take so much this."
"Well, what would you like me to do about it, love? I can't just change the weather." He responded looking back at his book.
"I know. Sorry, I'm just a little restless from being coped up inside all the time." You said, turning back towards the window. The rain was coming down even harder now. Your poor little backyard was being poun

"It was my pleasure," Arthur responded warmly. "After all," he added, looking at you with a smile in his emerald eyes,"it was only what any proper gentleman would do."
You smiled back at him shyly, but your heart was fluttering inside your chest. Others would call Arthur Kirkland "cold", "cynical", and "snide", but even from the relatively short time you had known him, you knew that under the surface, he could be as sweet and gentle as any other man. You harbored hopes inside of you, small but bright, that he would some day return your affection for him. But sometimes, you wondered if he ever would look at you romantically after your strong friendship.
As it almost always was, rain was pouring down from the skies above England. As you opened the car door to make a hasty escape to the shelter of your porch, Arthur reached out to touch your shoulder. "Allow me, my lady." Opening his

Today could not have been worse. It started off on a bad note when your alarm failed to wake you up on time for class. You stumbled into the lecture hall half asleep just in time to be given a pop quiz on something your professor had vaguely referenced a week ago. Apparently, your mind didn't think it was important enough to remember. After failing that quiz, you spent the rest of the day trying to focus on school, which was bad enough on its own. Once classes were over, you scrambled to your minimum wage job. Things weren't so bad there, although your boss did give you a thorough lecture about why the customer is always right. You could not have been happier when you were finally relieved by a fellow co-worker.
You heaved a heavy sigh as you closed the door to your small flat that you shared with your boyfriend, Arthur Kirkland.
"Hey, Artie, I'm home." You yelled.
You received no response, so you simply assumed Arthur had gone out for the night. Since you had th

You could at least be grateful that the rain took focus away from water currently falling from your orbs.
An hour later you took Arthur's hand, and dragged a dazed nation back home, while he wondered all the while if the fight he just fought was worth while. He could no longer call himself a sibling. That thought burned more than he would have liked it to.
That had been a three months ago. And during those months, England has slowly let the toxic elements of the event drain from him. You helping him whenever he stumbled, but he was strong even when his little brother had just broken ties.

The man turned around looking at the 7 year old boy running towards him. His (h/c) hair pushed all of his face as he ran. His Emerald eyes glowing with happiness. The boy stopped in front of his father with a massive grin.
"What's the matter Theodore?"
The boy looked up at his father grinning even more. The blonde man sighed before returning the smile and giving a questioning look.
"I met this girl daddy, and I really think I love her, she beautiful and really cool for a girl!"
The boy never stopped smiling for one minute. No matter what ever happened you could never get rid of his smile. The man gave a sad smile before turning to the grave behind him. He ran his hand across the grave gently before clearing his throat to speak.
"Well that good Theodore, but just remember to spend as much time with them as you can."

Making animal-like noises in your frustration, you hurried to the bathroom you and Arthur shared to try to make yourself presentable. You had no idea where you were going, but Arthur had told you to dress semi-formally. Moving faster than you ever thought you could, you dried and fixed your hair into loose curls, put on some foundation, eye shadow, and mascara, and hurried to your closet to pick out a dress. Just then you heard the front door open and Arthur call out to you.

None of the lights were on, making the room dark, only illuminating occasionally from the TV. In the kitchen, half-empty boxes of chocolates lay about, along with more c

Since it is about a hundred degrees Fahrenheit, most of you guys spend your time near the pool. You can't swim to save your life, though you refuse to let any of these guys know so that you won't be mocked. You simply stay in the shallow end or work on that tan you kind of don't want to get, cannonballing into the ends where your feet can touch the ground and your head can rise above the water. You play with the water guns and joke around with everyone, and a smile is always plastered on your face.
So here you are, sitting near the edge of the pool with your feet dangling over the edge and splashing the water around. You wear a light T-shirt over your bikini, slightly self-conscious, especiall

He was dressed in baggy clothes and he had a few piercings, the most noticeable were the ones on his eyebrows and lip. Music was pouring out of his headphones and he was moving his head in time with the music, eyes shut. You couldn't help but stare he was gorgeous. Messy blonde hair, emerald green eyes and a very alluring British accent in your mind, he was absolutely perfect, apart from the attitude he had with the teachers when they told him to turn his music down. He usually stuck his tongue out at them, gave them "the finger" or just grumbled under his breath and turned his music up. You looked down at your text book.

Your head shot up as the door opened, causing the doctor to chuckle at your eagerness. You grinned sheepishly and sat up straight, waiting to hear the results of your tests.

You sighed as you realized your entire week was rotten‒nothing went out the way you planned it. Just as you made your way inside, a band had just started playing another song and your British lover sang after a few beats, making your heart sink.
