England x Reader ~Wishful Thinking~~Wishful Thinking~
“Arthur, what did you wish for?”
________________ was leaning her upper body over the edge of the old wishing well, her short legs dangling in the air as she watched the ripples spread out on the water’s surface.
“That’s a secret, ________________,” he said.
Arthur rolled his eyes. “You know the saying: if you tell someone your wish, it won’t come true.”
_______________ shook her head. “No, I don’t think you need to keep it a secret to make it come true. Maybe I can help you.”
“Alright, why don’t you tell me what you wished for?” he asked.
“That’s a secret, Arthur,” ________________ replied.
Arthur cracked a smile. “How predictable.”
“It’s only because you can’t help me with my wish so I’m not going to tell you!”
“Fine, fine!” Arthur quickly said holding up his hands

The nice cool air settled with a drizzle that patted the backs of all who paddled down the street, almost as if ushering them onwards towards their destination. So far, Channel 62 was keeping their prediction on "Weather on a need to know basis". Although the rain wasn't "Pouring down in buckets," per say more like falling through a tightly weaved strainer suspended above the sky.
The rain's puddles splashed at your feet with each step you took, thoroughly wetting your socks so that each step was taken with an accompanied squish.
Well, these socks were absolutely ruined.
But after all, rain was to London as green was to grass. Whatever the saying was.
You gave a small huff as you decided to duck into the next open shop. This rain really wasn't helping you, at all.
Your sneakers padded as you flew down the street , searching for an "Open" Sign. Why was it that every sign that lit

The gulls were cawing and flying lazy circles overhead. Unfortunately, the poor excuse for a sail was too small to provide any shelter against any droppings that might have fallen onto your head. The lack of shade wasn’t an improvement, either.
“Blasted birds,” you angrily grumbled and craned your head past the small mast to see how your sailing companion was doing.
As I thought, you frowned and threw him a disapproving look. He was suffering from apparent heat stroke, and that nasty gash he got earlier wasn’t making the situation any better. No matter how long you stood there and ran your mouth, nothing would get done. The task would have to fall on you to get the two of your where you were going.
“Fancy meeting a pirate who doesn’t know anything about self-preservation,” you snorted and began to tear a piece of cloth off of your skirt. You then leaned over the sides of the tiny boat and dipped the cloth into the oc

An irritated sigh slithered past his lips as he raked his fingers through his unruly hair. Tapping his pencil on the wooden surface of his desk, he grumbled at the slow screen impatiently. A pile of neglected paperwork rested on the side of his desk, but Arthur was too tired to even think of doing it. The Brit rubbed the side of his sore neck, aching from hours of hunching over his small desk.
A set of warm fingers slipped around his cold wrist, pulling him up and forcing him to get out of his stiff chair. Arthur growled slightly, looking down at a mischievous face.
“Hello, Arthur,” you sang, smiling impishly as you pulled him closer. “Weather’s nice today, isn’t it?”
He groaned, blowing a piece of hair out of his face. “Not that I would know,” he said. “I’m been stuck inside all day, and it’s already almost eleven.”

Arthur walked, his dull green eyes framed by lank hair, his footfalls echoing between buildings. It was that day. He pushed away the memories threatening to flood forth and sighed heavily, needing to relieve some of the oppressive weight that had settled on his chest. It didn’t work.
Pink and orange rays of sunlight began to slip into the sky as dawn came, pushing into the grey mass of clouds. Arthur glanced up, but soon looked away. He had left Arthur. Just gone. Arthur wanted to be angry at America, wanted to rage at Alfred until he felt better, but he knew he would still feel this… emptiness, this hurt. Because I miss him.
Alfred would be celebrating today. Arthur felt bitterness creep up his throat. Again he fought to suppress the memories of the day Alfred ha

"Well?" you said standing up and marveling at the avant garde abstract masterpiece that was yours. "What do you think?"
Your boyfriend, Arthur, snaked his hands around your waist and rested his chin on your shoulder.
"I think it looks lovely, ____________," he said with a soft smile.
Unconvinced, you rolled your eyes. "Arthur, please, your judgement on art is as bad as your inability to tell the difference between your petrified couch stuffing of a scone to Francis' exquisite banana passionfruit soufflé."
"But I'm just as good as that frog when it comes to knowing the difference between two circles on a canvas and two lovely circles on a beautiful, talented lady," your English boyfriend purred.
You blinked, unmoved. "What? My eyes?"

You hated school. No, you didn’t hate this place because of the difficult work and the long, headache worthy hours. You hated it because you were alone.
You were that kid that sits in the back of the class by yourself. You were that kid that never had a buddy when the teacher told everyone to ‘pair up’. You were that kid that other kids would trip up in the school corridor and laugh at your tear stained face.The only part of the day that you could actually stand was lunchtime.
The high pitch ringing of the lunch time bell sent a jolt of energy up your spine as you reached for your belongings.
You never bothered about eating with the other children; their loud whispering and sniggers floated around you and hit you like little knifes from all directions. You pretended not to hear, but those sharp insults always made you cringe.

Your brilliant (e/c) hues looked down at the present you had purchased earlier today. It was a rather nice sampling set of loose tealeaves; every type of course came in their own neatly labeled little tin. The tins were packages nicely together in a little wooden chest for both decoration and convenience. It just so happened that Arthur, one of your closest and dearest friends had a birthday coming up in a little over a week’s time.
Certainly, the British gentleman would have loved such a nice present. He was often obsessed with tea, constantly drinking the stuff. However, despite the fact, you picked out the tea’s selection yourself and even though there were over 30 different types of tea stored in the assorted set, the present somehow felt wrong. Maybe it was because the present didn’t take much thought before hand. Then again, this off putting feeling could have easily been caused by the fact you had fallen for your lifelong pal.
You had been trying to find a way

The breath of a haunting melody drifted towards the traveler’s ears. It far surpassed any song he had ever heard: it was so full of longing, so full of life.
Where is that coming from? he wondered as his feet seemed to carry him towards the music. The more he traversed through the wilderness, the louder the song grew until he could clearly make out the voice of a girl singing past the thick trees.
It’s not too far now…
What lay beyond the trees was unlike anything the traveler had ever seen: a cage wound of steel bars molded into intricately curved designs complete with lush greenery, a dainty little bed, and in the center of it all, sitting on a tall branch in a tree like a tame bird, was a girl.
Unlike her song, this girl was plain. She did not have the fanciful garments that matched her voice. No. She had nothing but dull brown silken fabric blowing softly in the spring breeze, and her hair did the same.

So you decided that today, you would pay him back.
You never really got to talk to England much, with him being a country and all, so you didn't know what he exactly liked. So, you decided that maybe some of his friends would know.
After asking as many countries as you could reach, most of your answers varied dramatically. America had suggested a hamburger, Italy thought pasta was a wonderful idea, Germany a book, Japan something homemade and from the heart, Russia some vodka, and Prussia something awesome. When you asked Prussia to specify on his answer, he just announced that he had some "awesome" stuff to attend to and dashed off.

You sigh and walk through to the kitchen again, snatching up the towel you keep by the doorway, which you use on a regular basis now, but not for drying spills. No need to panic that the fire alarm is going off, because youve seen a familiar car parked outside.
No, this towel is to fan the smoke away from the fire alarm and out of the kitchen window whenever your boyfriend, Arthur, is cooking.

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.

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.
