Practice makes perfect
Today was less than perfect to say the least. I was a little more than late for my class at university which resulted in me making up that time after school. So that's all dealt with and now I'm going to my job, and I'm late for that too! It's not as though I haven't been late once or twice before however, there was a staff meeting that I missed because of it! So now I have my boss barking at me as I'm trying to restock shelves. Ok, so that's done, I get to go home and relax now right? Wrong! I'm driving along, minding my own business when some jerk totally cuts me off and I almost get in an accident!
I'm surprised that I ever made it home without ripping out my hair! But here I am. Home sweet home. Collapsing on the sofa I lazily glance around the room, looking for my boyfriend. See, for some crazy reason I am dating, and living with the world's most childish adult. We are nothing alike! I have my whole career planned out while he just 'g

That's the only sound coming from the living room where you and Alfred were currently playing Guitar Hero 3. At 2:30 in the morning.
"Dude this sucks!" Alfred suddenly exclaimed as you both finished another level in the game. "How can we play Guitar Hero 3 when the volume is off!? It doesn't make sense!"
You looked over at him with a glare and shushed him. "It was your idea to play at this time!"
"I know that, but I did it so we could yell and wake up Arthur!" Alfred retorted.
You rolled your eyes, but let out a chuckle. 'Alfred, always there to bug Arthur.' You thought.
It would've been louder if the fake drums were brought out, but Matthew decided to be sneaky and hide them before you and Alfred had a chance to start the game. This led to you two just using the guitar and bass.
"If this is such a bad idea, why'd you agree to play with me?" Alfred asked you quietly.
You looked over at him. The T.V screen in front o

His baby blue eyes were sparkling as he looked over the video game gleefully. He'd finally found it! It'd taken him weeks of searching this his large as his appatite house, but somehow Alfred F. Jones found Super Mario Bros buried in his top secret hamburger stash.
Well, he knew exactly what to do now: go over to the house of his video game bro, ____, pop that fucker in, and play until he could no longer use empty Mountain Dew bottles to release his piss(something Alfred had to do more than once on his gamer days)
Lazy fatass though he might be, when he had motivation(or a coupon for a free Big Mac) Alfred could run pretty damn fast, so it was no surprise that he was at your house in no time. Being Alfred, he didn't bother knocking and invited himself inside. "Hey bro, I finally found it! Let's go play!" He recieved no response, seeing as no one was on the first floor.
He assumed you were in your room and ran upstairs. What he didn't assume was that you

You and Alfred were close. He made you feel happy even in the worst of times. His smile was contagious and fun seemed to follow him everywhere.
You were in love with his country, and would frequently visit at particular parts of the year, running around with a camera and taking silly photos. Each one held important memories that you fondly looked back on.
Often during winter he would invite you to stay in the north with him. You would bundle up for the cold weather, packing on your snow boots and heavy coats. You would snuggle up together by the fire, sipping your hot coco slowly, trying not to burn your tongue. He would throw snowballs at you, which frequently ended with you being the victor of the fight. Together you built impressive snowmen and forts, which somehow always ended up always being crushed.
In the summer you would visit the south where it was particularly hot, peeling off your winter clothes and slipping into bathing suits and tank tops. Th

“Hey Alfred!” you hollered and waved an arm after patting some more snow on you and your little sister’s snow man.
“Hey, ______! What’s up, brah?” Alfred answered, jaywalking from his mailbox to your side of the street, but he still looked both ways.
“Nothing much; Maddy and I are making a snowman.” You answered as he walked into your front lawn, leaving fresh tracks.
“He’s ruining the snow!!!” Your sister, Maddy, gasped, pointing at him accusingly.
Alfred stopped where he was and held up his hands in defense. This was common between them and you knew what was next. He got his sneaky smirk on his face and shrugged his shoulders.

"F/N!!!!" I woke up screaming. I had an awful nightmare that my precious (F/N) decided to leave me for someone else. The room was still dark so I start patting the sides to make sure she was still there. I finally felt her form and immediately hug it.
"Nghh..." (F/N) groaned and buried her face in the pillow. I held her tighter and take in her smell. 'Oh god, I can't imagine a day without her,' I thought, but then I begin to wonder.

You smiled contently. You were leaning against a tall tree enjoying its shade, and reading your favorite book. It was lunch time at your high school and you were taking advantage of your alone time. You weren’t unsocial or anything, you just didn’t really like to be surrounded by people 24/7. You had a few friends and they understood your need for solitude at times.
“Excuse me,” a voice said in front of you.
Startled, you looked up. Standing before you was Alfred F. Jones. He was probably one of the loudest boys you had ever met. He was incredibly popular; a self-proclaimed hero who always wore a grin and looked like he had stepped out of a modeling magazine.
“Did it hurt?” he asked, cocking his head to the side.
“Did what hurt?” you asked, mildly irritated.
He gave a cheesy grin and stuck his hands in his pockets.
“Oh, you know, when you fell from heaven,” he smiled.
You blinked. He grinned. You blinked again. He was an idiot
