“I’m sorry but I think we should break up.”
“I’m sorry but things just aren’t working out.”
“I’m sorry but you just don’t interest me anymore.”
Even though I do this on a weekly basis you would expect me to know how to ignore it. If you think that you would be wrong. I try and ignore the pang in my heart telling me to apologize but I just cant do that. The apology behind the words ‘I’m sorry’ had empty meaning, I really just don’t care.
I’d be lying to myself; the girls I walk away from don’t mean anything to me. They’re more like Advil?

"Oi, Emil. Did you here? A new student is going to come." Leon whispered at Emil. He shrugged, and continued to stay silent like he always was. Everyone seemed to be talking about the new student. Gossips, rumors, everything!
The teacher came in, and students quickly stopped their chattering and went to their proper seats. The teacher cleared his throat and began to speak. "As you all may know, we have a new student coming from [country name]."
Just as soon as he stopped his sentence, the door creaked open to reveal a girl. The boys began to drool at her beauty, while girls glared at the girl completely jealous of her looks. The female was indeed quite beautiful.
Her [hair color] was put it in a pony tail, giving her a mature look. Her eyes glimmered the color of [eye color]. Her pink rosy chapped lips were probably kissable, if only the boys could.
"Salutations. My name is [name] [last name]. A pleasure to meet you." Her voice was stern, yet soft and calm. [Name] was rather quite matu

"_______, are you awake?" Emil asked softly, looking towards you.
"Yea," you said. You picked your head up and looked at him, smiling. You pulled your hair into a sloppy bun.
"Are you finding this movie as boring as I am?" He asked. He showed you his childish smile that he only allows those close to him to see. His purple eyes gleamed in the darkness of the room.
"Yes, very much." You giggled. The movie was supposed to be amazing and dramatic, but, there was one actress that ruined it. Very badly.
"Well, I'm tired of waiting, for a lot of things, actually. Let's turn this off and find something else to do, eh?" He said, ki
Cravings: Licorice (Iceland)“…Licorice!”Cravings: Licorice (Iceland)2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The delicious candy was calling your name, so you grabbed your bike and rode the few blocks down to your favorite Nordic themed restaurant. The kind of licorice you were craving was special and directly imported from Iceland, and the only place that would import it was this place.
Arriving, you hopped off your bike and tethered it to a nearby bike rack. Looking up at the sign hung directly above, on the moderately sized building, you mused yourself with reading the different names of the restaurant. You figured that the owners had agreed on a name for the restaurant, but couldn’t decide what language to put in. On the sign, there was Restaurant Hanatamago written in equal size in five different languages. You chuckled and walked inside.

She was always happy and cheerful looking, but when she was alone, she was depressed and always lonely inside. The only thing that could brighten up her day was her group of friends. Especially a certain silver haired boy who had a talking puffin as a pet/friend/thing.R: Iceland x Reader2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
They were best friends ever since a long time ago, until one horrid day arrived.
It had been weeks since Iceland had properly talked to [Name]. He would always avoid her and ignore her or anything to get away from her. This was because he was having a weird sensation whenever she's around.
She has been pestering him around or quite a few days about how he was or why he had been avoiding her.
He snapped soon after that.
"Ice? What's wrong? Are you alright?" [Name] asked in a worried tone while setting a hand on her Icelandic friend's shoulder.
"Ow... Ice, that hurt!" [Name]rubbed her hand to lessen the pain.

While this may be amusing to many, it has become dull and tasteless to me.
Let me introduce myself to you first. My name is Emil Steilsson. I am the youngest of my four older brothers, whom I mentioned previously. My home is in Reykjavik, Iceland but right now I’m currently in Oslo, Norway visiting. Oh, and on an unrelated note, I have a pet bird named Mr. Puffin.
I look into my cup of tea and I see my own bored expression. I sigh before I take a small sip. I see Berwald look up at me out of the corner of my eye.
“Hej, Emil. Y’u l’k b’red.” (You look bored.) he says to me in his thick Swedish accent that incredibly I could understand. Everybody else looks up towards me.
“Joo, Emil. You haven’t said a single word since you got here.” Tino rema

"Pftt, realized that like long ago."
"Why are they even following us again?"
"Because... We're out on a date?"
"Gah, they're so creepy."
"Oh please Emil, don't over-react. I think it's pretty cute."

"Hey, cut them some slack. They're just looking out for their youngest sibling."
"Well I'm 17 and I don't need babysitters!"

People say that it is childish, but no matter what your favorite part of the day was going to the candy store after going to school. I started going in first grade and have been doing it in my second year of high school. No matter what comments I hear or what I have to do that day this will be my first subject of the day! I walk down main street until I reach the end with the small sweets store which I like to call home. I walk in as always, with the little kids looking at me weirdly, they may think I am old or something.
"Hello, Miss (Name)!" Says the over happy saleswoman, she has been nice to me ever since I first came in here. She would throw discounts at me a lot, but I usually would never accept it, she needs the money more than I.

‘God damn it all!’
Keeping your injured hand wrapped in an oil-stained cloth, you rush back into your house, hurrying into your kitchen. Your arm lifted high, you search for the sink, small beads of red dripping from the grimed material onto the tiles. Muttering curses at yourself, fate and the giant hunk of useless metal outside, you almost trip over your own feet as you put your wounded limb in the basin, dropping the filthy rag.
‘Stupid, son-of-a-god…’ you mumbled, washing off the dried flakes of crimson, hissing at the slight prickle as the water hit the cut.
You were trying, for once, to fix your pathetic excuse of a car and ended up hurting yourself on God knows what. Grumbling furiously, you proceeded to grab the first-aid kit that was situated on top of the fridge but destiny was against you for the second time that day. The box fell from its spot, spilling its contents everywhere, the pieces clattering nosily.

(If you live in Iceland, or anywhere you can see the northern lights, pretend you live somewhere south.)
Emil, your said boyfriend, glanced at you in amusement. You always got excited about doing something or going somewhere new. And he liked that about you. Heck, he liked everything about you. That’s why he asked you to go along with him back to his home country for a few weeks.
Suddenly, the plane jutted forward; it was taking off. You nervously grabbed onto Emil’s hand, but still kept your gaze outside the window. Emil gently squeezed your hand reassuringly. He had done this many times before, so he had no worries. You watched in awe how the plane went faster and faster. Your eyes widened when the plane lifted upward, causing it to

Lukas had found you hitting your head repeatedly on a tree. You looked no more than a four year old with [h/c] hair tied in low pigtails.
He got curious as to why a small child would be banging her head against a tree that hadn't done anything to her.
As he neared the spot of which you stood, he felt an odd sensation. It felt as if he were with another country.
Where you, perhaps, another country?
If that was the case, why were you banging your head on a tree? And if he was really sure that you were a new country, would you call him big brother as well?
What do I mean by 'as well'?
Lukas has a little brother named Emil, who was also a new country.
Lukas stood behind you and coughed a bit to make you stop banging your head and face him. You looked at him with a 'wtf-do-you-want-with-me can't-you-see-I'm-busy-banging-my-head-on-a-tree?' face.

Unfortunately, the country had caught some sort of virus a few days ago, and was still pretty sick. What’s even worse is that there is a world meeting that is going to be about three days long, and Iceland can’t make it. The rest of the Nordics were trying to decide what to do with the situation at hand.
“Well, I could just stay here and take care of him.” Denmark suggested.
“No.” Norway protested. “You can’t use Emil’s sickness as an excuse to skip the meeting.” The Dane pouted and muttered under his breath. Finland walked over to the two and leaned against the wall.

The Nordics, as they were called, were all joking and having a good time as always, completely oblivious to her. It was typical though. They were the high and mighty popular people while she was the lowly nerd.

The frigid snowstorm was coming too quickly. You looked around but the snow was so thick, you couldn't see your hand in front of your face. You had been wandering around in the blizzard for God only knows how long. It could have been hours, it could have been minutes. The piercing shrill of the wind rang in your ears and slowly stung at your face. You didn't know how much longer you could keep going. Your feet were numb from exhaustion and your body wracked with a permanent chill. As the freezing wind encased you, it set a reminder there was no escape from this icy hell. You dropped to your knees, all hope lost and laid down on the frozen ground. It was time to accept your fate. As you went to close your eyes, a small ray of light appeared and as your sight began to fade, you saw the small glimmer of violet eyes.
