“Come on, love. A deal is a deal.” Arthur said as he gently patted your back. You sighed, remembering your bet.
~Flashback: Brought to you by Flying Mint Bunny~
Arthur had come by to visit you at your house last week. You were sitting around playing video games while he watched and drank tea. He could never understand how you could sit in one spot for so long and play those brain-sucking things called video games. Probably because most of the games you got were from America, your long time crush.
Britain knew about your little crush. He always noticed how you blushed and got all sparkly-eyed when the hero was around you. He decided that he would do something to finally you two together.
“Hey, __________. Let’s make a deal.” Arthur said with a mischievous little smirk on his lips. You paused your game and turned your attention to the Brit. “What kind of deal?” “How about I play a few rounds with you in your silly little game. If you win then I’ll go spend an entire week with that bloody cheesy monkey, France.” You laughed. Arthur, spending an entire week with Francis? You couldn’t pass up such a sweet offer. , “And if you win?” “If I win, you have to confess to America.” Pfft. That was never going to happen. You were a master at this game so there was no way you would lose. “You’re on!” And the button mashing began.
Five long, intense rounds later there was a victor, and it wasn’t you. Some how, Arthur had kicked your butt in three out of the five rounds. You didn’t think he even knew how to play video games! He only chuckled, “Better luck next time, __________.” You could’ve sworn you heard him say something about you can’t defeat a former pirate.
~End of Flashback~
Now the time had come. You and Arthur where in one of the booths at McDonald’s, sitting a few seats from America, who was scarfing down burgers with shakes. He looked so happy while eating the fast food.
Taking a deep breath, you slowly stood up and made your way to where the hero was sitting and sat down beside him. “Hey America.” He turned to look at you. “Hey __________! What’s up, dude?” “Nothing much…” You took another deep breath. Well, this is it… “I love you, Alfred!” You blurted out much quicker than you intended to.
Alfred stared at you in complete shock, his mind trying to process what he just heard. “U-uhm… I’m sorry, Alfred! It was a dare an-“ You didn’t get to finish you sentence. Alfred had gently grabbed hold of your chin and kissed you while you had tried to apologize. Your eyes fluttered shut and you immediately kissed back. When you two finally broke for air, you said, “I guess that means you love me too. America grinned and nodded before pulling you into another loving lip lock.
The British gentleman who had been watching from the other table smiled and then made his way to the nearby exit.
“Guess my work here is done.”
You and America had been happily dating for a little over two weeks now. You were glad that you had lost the bet with England; otherwise you wouldn’t be with Alfred. But there was still one little thing that had to be done…
“Bloody hell! How did you beat me?!” Arthur screamed in disbelief. Two weeks ago he had beaten you at video games. This time Alfred challenged him. Five quick minutes and Alfred had won like the champion he was. Britain chucked the controller at the floor in anger. “Oh come on, Artie. Don’t be like that. A deal is a deal. Now you have to go spend a week France.” “No! You can’t make me!”
“Oh hon hon hon~!” France mysteriously popped up from behind the couch. “Like __________ said, a deal is a deal.” The Frenchman grabbed hold of the Britain and dragged him out the front door. You and the American country could only watch, hoping that the poor man comes back in one piece.
“If we don’t see him after a week, I’m sending you to go find him.” You told your boyfriend. “Oh, relax. He’ll be fine.” He said, kissing your cheek. “Yeah… Best two out of three?” You held up the controller.
“You’re on, dude!”
