Hallucinations: USUK OneshotArthur woke up gasping for breath, swimming in his bedsheets and a pool of his own sweat.
It took him a moment to ensure that he wasn't still trapped in his mind.
The hallucinations were always so real. They were vivid and pertained to all of Arthur's five senses. The flames that licked away at the layers of his skin, the sharp fingernails that raked across his body, drawing blood; the white-hot knives sinking their razor-sharp teeth into his arms, intent on lacerating him, and the short stretch of rough rope, handled by unseen hands, pressed against his windpipe, slowly causing him to turn blue with asphyxiation...
Arthur shuddered again, trying to suppress the memory, but the more he tried to forget, the more those thoughts stubbornly surfaced to his mind. He lifted a trembling hand towards his throat, and was shocked to feel the ragged imprint of the rope, where it had dug into his skin.

Gil laughed a bit to himself,"Dude, cool is my middle name...well...it's actually 'awesome'."
He heard a sigh on the other end before the line went dead. Gil looked around once again, seeing everyone wearing their best. He was a hired assasin, told that his objective was a rich dame who would end up here tonight. But why she was wanted was unknown to him.

Groaning painfully, you grabbed a pillow and put it on top of your head, trying to drone out the noises from downstairs. A sudden hand rested on your shoulder and shocked you severely, making you jump a bit (with pain shooting through your head once more).
Looking up, you were welcomed by a warm pair of dull blue eyes. "________, you don't look so good." Norway's voice sounded void of all emotions as normal,"Do you need anything?"
Putting the pillow back over your head in response to Denmark's drunken exclamation ('Where the *hic* hell did *hic* Norge run off too...*hic*'), you mumbled under your breath,"Please tell Den to shut up...my head hurts."

I couldn't push him away, he was too strong and I was only pathetic and weak. My wrists were sore and bruising from being held tightly together above my head with one of his hands, the other was pushing forcibly against my chest. God! I was going to be raped wasn't I? The hand on my chest slowly worked its way downwards, reaching the rim of my shirt and he pushed his cold hand onto my warm body, causing me to shiver with the chill. What the hell did he want with me? Why did he have to target me out of all the other students walking back from college, I was weak and ugly and yet he chose me to torment.US x UK: The Demon Within in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The policemen looked at him with a smile on their face and gently asked him why they were bullying him in the first place. Arthur blushed brightly but slowly found his voice.US x UK: Chapter 11 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Oh God. Arthur thought with fear. He didn't want to go in today, not just to see those hurtful faces. Arthur took a deep breath and left his house, he walked confidently, proudly. Soon he realised he was being stupid and proceeded to bow his head into his scarf and walk slumped and looking down. This time, there was no Alfred to meet him, he smiled to himself, and it was better this way. Arthur walked past Sam and his friends at the gate. "Fag" They laughed and then stuck their leg out and Arthur found himself flying towards the concrete floor. His hands were still in his pocket and he'd only freed one before it scraped along the hard gritty floor, slowly tearing away the flesh on his palm. His other hand had stayed trapped in this pocket so the other half of his body landed with a crash, smashing his already bruised shoulder into the floor. His knees dragged along, causing damage to his trousers during the impact; his knees were bloody and raw. He landed with a slump and great

He would pick at breakfast and dinner here and there, and he would drink so much water. He was getting thinner, his cheeks had become hollowed and sunken, his eyes looked haunted, the once glistening green had turned to a faded emerald. That over sized shirt clung to him with his collar bones jutting out and his ribs poking through his stretched flesh, he had become weak reduced to nothing.Us x UK: One Shot in Short Stories More Like This

He stood up and walked past me heading to the kitchen to dispose what was left of his dinner, which turned out to be most of it. He worried me so much but I felt there was nothing I could do, he was so stubborn. He returned to the front room licking his dry cracked lips and looked around the room looking lost. Tea

EnglandXReader: Guitar HeroOver the years of making your acquaintance, England had learned a few things about ________. One of those was that you were absolutely shameless. You had no qualms about acting the exact opposite of a lady, which he put to being friends with that manner-less lout, America. You would get down and dirty while hanging around America and your other friends. You would wear clothes that were unfitting for any girl and there were times that when you had guests you answered the doors in your pajamas, heaven forbid. These acts of incivility only increased when video games were involved, but that was more of a personal thing than a 'national' quirk. You had become good friends with Japan because of your love of games. You would even go as far as to pull pranks on anyone and everyone, particularly England himselfEnglandXReader: Guitar Hero in Romance More Like This

Plus, you hadn't heard from your boyfriend Arthur all day. Facts had to be faced, you told yourself sternly as you washed glasses in the sink, and they were these. Arthur wasn't romantic. No one who knew him could say otherwise with a straight face and a clean conscience. He wasn't a one-dozen-roses-and-heart-shaped-box-of-candy type of guy.

You sheepishly looked away from your friend. Arthur always worried over you, fussed when he didn't need to and hovered more than necessary, but you loved him more than your current boyfriend at least. Your relationship with Gilbert had turned sour. At first you had been happily in love, but then he started ogling the new Hungarian exchange student, even though she was dating the Austrian boy from your music class. You had always had a crush on Arthur, but you felt, you weren't worth the time of day. He was a good guy. He could have any girl he wanted. Why would he want you? Why would he even dare to ask you out? If he knew, he would leave you alone for sure and you couldn't risk that. He was your only friend in school.

You looked up from the book you were reading. You could see two kids, who had climbed high up into a tree. Now you normally didn't get involved, but you could see a group of other kids calling names and yelling at the other kids. No one else was getting up to help the two smaller boys; the parents of any of the children were nowhere to be seen. You shook your head as your book snapped shut. So much for going to the park for a quiet read. Your roommates were driving you insane and you had no peace and quiet, but you couldn't let the kid fall, especially with the other boy sitting next to the tree crying for someone to help. You jogged over with your book in your arms.

His tiny frame was masked underneath one of Allistor's old sweatshirts with a small t-shirt underneath and jeans that had been rolled up five or six times to fit his skinny legs. His shoes were worn and the soles were almost worn away completely. Kids were already whispering as he walked down the hallway with his puke green knapsack slung over his shoulder. One strap was held to the bag itself with duck tape.

You knocked outside his bedroom door. As his personal assistant it was your job to make sure he got where he was supposed to be going. However, this morning he was not answering his phone and he had missed two meetings. Hesitantly, you pulled out the spare key he had given you. While you were under direct orders to never use it unless absolutely necessary, you felt that his was one of those times. He could dock your pay later. You really needed to make sure he made the meeting with that really loud mouthed American with the green energy proposal. It was bound to be crap like the last proposal he had, but since Mr. Bondevik was in charge of an eco-friendly company and they had been taking hits lately, he had to listen to any proposal that came his way – even if it meant sitting through a lecture about the Super Hero Globoman.

Alfred really was nervous about this. He looked to the woman at his side, uncertain of what to say to her, to convince her that her feet belonged on the ground, with his. However, Amelia Earhart was not to be deterred. Her enthusiasm was not helping. She was simply overly excited about her trip across the world. But he feared for her. If she missed one island, she was in trouble. No one would save her. It would rely heavily on her navigator and Alfred wasn't sure if the bimbo she had working with her was going to be able to handle the job she was assigning him. He wanted to go out and find her the best navigator the world had to offer, but she refused, though she did laugh at the thought. She had flown solo so many times that she was a good navigator herself, but he worried still.

When you had asked who made them he said he did but you knew for a fact that England's cooking skills were lacking in the department but he could make good tea and biscuits so perhaps cupcakes fell in that category as well? But England just laughed and giggled to himself, as if you had told him some sort of joke when you told him how good the cupcakes and tea were. You didn't see what was so funny. Perhaps his faery friends were telling him jokes. What worried you was if they were making fun of you.

You had ordered a special burger for him, because you didn't know what he liked since he had never really had one before. He was bit surprised he was about to consume a piece of meat wrapped around lettuce, bacon, ketchup, mustard, pickles, and two buns or so you had explained to him.
