Left up to you (Bookshop owner JapanXReader)The tiny sound of the bell ringing filled the silence. You stepped through the grimy door, your eyes widening at the cornucopia of books that stretched across the room. Stacks of books were in each and every corner of the little shop, tables overflowing with them. Shelves went all the up to the ceiling, books of all shapes and sizes adorning them.
This was the sort of place you were looking for, the quiet type of paradise that until now had eluded you. Except, the place was filthy.
Dust cloaked the wooden shelves, hell even the air was thick with it. You had to watch your feet carefully, to make sure your nose wouldn't meet the floor anytime soon.
"Hello?" You said, scanning the room for a sentient life form. "Hello? Is there anyone here?" Your voice got louder as you tried again. After managing to stumble closer to the only table with a cash machine, you rang the bell that was settled on the desk.
A groan emitted from behind the doorway, which was covered by strands of fabric, in an a

“C’mon Kiku, you know it’s not really going to happen right?” You said, gently patting the quivering form underneath your bedcovers. “How can you know that for certain?!” He replied, sitting up from his hiding place and looking at you incredulously.
“Because the end of the world has been predicted so many times before.” Ludwig interjected, leaning his elbows on his knees. “I don’t understand what all the fuss is about to be honest.” He muttered under his breath, slacking yet another sigh.
“Well if we do die, I want to die with you guys!” Feliciano said, getting away from Lovino and attacking you and Ludwig with a hug. “You too, fratello, Kiku!” Lovino

You yourself had fluffy kitty-ears on your head and a matching outfit. During the bus' sudden stops and turns, you talked non-stop about what had happened at last year's con, wondering what strange and brilliant new arrivals were awaiting you.
The moment the bus stopped you and your friend leapt out of the bus, sprinting like crazy to join the queue, which was getting dangerously long.

A new day brought on by a magnificent sunrise and birds chirping happily.
At least that's how it would start in a perfect world.
But seeing as how it isn't, instead you woke up to the always unwelcome screeching of your alarm clock. After finally managing to shut it off, you open your eyes where your vision is greeted with the amazing sight of rain: nothing but rain and clouds colored in a depressing gray.
Actually, the weather described how you felt perfectly.
Today was your birthday. Usually that would make you estatic beyond words. But it just wouldn't be the same without..
My sweetheart, you finished in your thoughts as a melancholy sigh passed your lips.
You glance at a picture next to your clock of your dear husband of nearly two years, Kiku Honda.

And of course, your first reaction was to dive underneath the covers of his bed, flattening yourself to the best of your possibility. You were hoping to give him a good scare.

You suppressed a chuckle and held your breath as you heard him. After putting the tray on his desk, Kiku smiled when he saw your form underneath the covers. “Hmmm..... I really wouldn’t know where she got to.” He commented, sitting on the edge of the bed and leaning back, leaning his weight onto you.
It wasn’t that he was heavy or anything, he was just pressing onto you so much that you gave up after a few moments, sitting up and glomp

Since this is a reader-insert story, of course we have to describe what you're wearing in great detail. Just as in most other times when you went out in public, your outfit had a character theme- a kind of casual cosplay. And as usual, you figured [f/n] wouldn't be too happy about it... But hey, at least you weren't going out as a full-fledged, hardcore cosplay! She really hated that. That was why going places with Kiku was so awesome... But after he had arrived, you barely did anything with the other girls anymore, so you figured that this little Kiku-free excursion would be good for you.Japan x Reader: Getto Daze3 years ago in Romance More Like This

'______-chan, how are you?
______ happily sat next to her Japanese friend, plonking herself down and swinging round in her chair to face him, smiling.
'I'm good, thanks. Watcha drawing?'
Kiku shifted nervously in his seat, not meeting her eyes.
'Nothing important ______-chan. Is there something you wanted?'
______ blinked, surprised.
'Nope, I just wanted to see you.'
Truth was, Kiku had been acting strange around her for awhile and she was getting a bit worried about her friend.

'Oh. Cool ' She nodded at him in an offhand kind of way. Not that Kiku saw it or anything because, man, that crack in the paint on the wall was really interesting.

Ever since your first day of junior high school the two if you became very good friends due to you both sharing a huge interest in anime.
Kiku was always a very shy and thoughtful Japanese boy. Although when it came to anime he would liven up and he could talk about it forever and ever, as could you. This is how Kiku usually acted in a nut shell, but lately he has been acting...strange. Specifically starting this week. He blushed a lot, stuttered, and seemed to sweat whenever you were around now. This is very unlike him except when a very pretty girl from an anime was involved. You thought that maybe he just thought you looked like one, so basically you just brushed it off.
