Lullaby For A Stormy Night EnglandxReaderYou awaken to soft crying coming from the other room. You nuzzle Arthur's neck, trying to wake him up. "Artie..." you whisper. "Mattie's crying again..."
Arthur groans and flips the pillow over his head. "But I got it last time..."
Another loud thunderclap rattles the walls and rain pounds fiercely against the windows. Another voice joins the chorus of wailing, this one much louder.
Sighing, you roll out of bed to check on your boys. Your feet hit the cold floor, making you instantly wish you could just stay in bed. Alas, even if you did, you wouldn't be able to sleep with the terrified whimpers of your sons. You tiredly make your way over to the wooden cradle where they slept, swaddled in blankets. Mattie is still wrapped in his, crying very softly.
Alfred, on the other hand, has kicked his blanket away, which now rests in a crumpled heap beside him. He flails and thrashes about wildly, crying profusely.
You shake your head, an amused smile playing on your lips. "For twins, you certai

You twirl about happily on the dance floor, a soft, sweet ballad flowing through the ball room. Your long dress brushes the polished stone with each movement. You and your partner glide about, not a care in the world. He spins you gracefully, and you land in the arms of another. This man is much older than you, and much nicer dressed. The music stops and people clap, meaning there will be a short intermission before the next song starts.
The man before you bows slightly, and you curtsy. "Good evening, (Name)." he greets, his words slurred from wine.
"Good evening, your Majesty." you reply, not wanting to anger the king.
He smiles at you and pulls you aside from the dancing. "May I have a word with you?"
"Yes, your Majesty." It would be complete suicide to refuse the king anything he wants!
He leads you out to the garden, where red roses bloom happily in the summer night. You walk through the maze of bushes, silent, as was expected of anyone in the king's presence.

"Awh," I groaned and flopped back onto the soft sheets, I rubbed my eyes "The insomnia has gotten worse ..." I muttered to myself, sighing in defeat. The bags under my eyes had gotten darker day after day, they where clearly visible now.
I sat up once again and tip-toed to the entrance of our bedroom, throwing a last glance at my boyfriend's sleeping face I squeezed through the opening. I cast a glance across the stairs, those weak and creaky stairs that protested every time your feet pressed down onto the wood.
I held my breath as I carefully tip-toed down the stairs, begging for gravity to be on my side this one time. I stepped onto the cold floor and went to the kitchen.

'Up she goes,up,up,/I want to reach her,but it's hard/She's being like the best of me/She's reaching for eternity/I guess that's why I can't reach her/Because she's growing and I can't soar.'.
The female brushed her (h/c) hair with small movements,the action itself soothening her.Of course it was quite hard to hide such a thing - in a way,she felt egoistical to keep it just for herself and Arthur - but her major fear was how his family was to react.
Sighing inwardly,the female placed the hairbrush onto the small wooden table in front of the mirror,glacing once more at her reflection - she had grown unnecessarly tired and her belly proeminent,anouncing she had to speak up already.

He fumbled with his keys, taking them out of his pocket and finally managing to slide them into the lock of his door, trying not to let the fatigue of the day show on his face. He tried to push it all aside. Push aside that annoying American’s words, the perverted Frenchman’s advances and actions, and he tried to completely forget about the official documents he had been forced to bring home that currently resided in his briefcase.
A tired sigh left Arthur Kirkland’s lips as he pushed open the door to his flat. Immediately, he let his briefcase drop so his fingers, calloused from over the years, could press into his temples, rubbing small circles into the skin in an attempt to soothe the headache he feared was approaching. He tried to be gentle in his shutting of his front door, not really wanting any loud

Arthur Kirkland had let himself fall into that pit of feelings one too many times for his liking in the long span of time he had been living, and after one time too many, he had sworn most emotions off, love being the primary one. He hadn’t thought the emotion would ever come back into his life, so it was only natural to have sworn it off, but then he didn’t count on you appearing in his life. He didn’t account for there possibly being one person in the entire universe that might be able to fit to him perfectly, almost like two conjoining puzzle pieces.
And now he didn’t know what to say, but he knew he wasn’t about to let you slip through his fingers. He wasn’t stupid enough to let you get away from him.

We were worried about him and I finally decided to come see what was wrong. I heard coughing from Arthur’s bedroom and hurried in. It was dark, which was very unlike the Englishman, and I couldn’t see much.
I walked to one of the windows and opened the curtains. I heard groaning from his bed. I turned and saw Arthur’s blonde hair sticking out from under his blankets. He went into another coughing fit before quieting down again. I walked to his bed and sat down on the edge.

(A/N: My submission to The-Hetalia-Hangout’s contest.)
It was a late night. Stars were out, and the moon was shining brightly. Lighting up the hill full of poppies and daffodils. You and a certain Brit were lying on top of a picnic blanket that was simply sprawled on the floor. The night sky was filled with stars, a few fireflies were flying about. An old robin's nest abandoned, high up in a nearby tree.
It was a quiet night. The silence was bliss, away from all the noise you were so used to. The usual hustle and bustle of the city was stressful, so the calm and stillness of the night, in an empty field was relaxing. It was like a small haven in a world full of troubles, problems, worries, regrets and lies.
Snuggling closer to England, his scent of tea and vanilla is warm and inviting. You nuzzle his cheek inhaling more of his scent, the Brit’s cheeks heat up from the sudden affectionate gesture. This was normal, an affectionate g

'He probably wasn't expecting me to like him, of all people. Although, America is a little ignorant at times.'
"I..I won't tell him. But..why England, of all people? He's such a jerk, and he's so mean! Why not go out with someone who is actually nice? Or someone who actually likes you!"
America's eyes widened and he let out a small gasp, realizing what he just said. You were shocked that your best friend for years and years had said such a horrible thing. America studdered. "I-I didn't mean it like that..I swear! It just--"
But it was a little too late to be apologizing. You thought your best friend would support you, help build up your confidence- but no. You felt your eyes get watery, and you got up from America's couch, still shaking.
