You yawned as you walked through the mildly crowded halls of Hetalia Gakuen.

You grinned as you were greeted almost instantly.

People called out to you, here and there, you smiled and greeted them in return.

You guessed you could say that you were popular.

Everywhere you walked in school, everyone knew your name, everyone smiled at you.

You were popular, know that you thought about it.

But you weren't popular for the wrong reason!

You knew girls who were popular, who were liked because…Well, because they were sluts. They were whores and they were fakes, the only reason they were liked was because they slept with almost all the guys in school.
How people saw that as 'Admirable' was beyond you.

You weren't afraid to talk about them either, or to stand up to them.

You also weren't afraid to stand up for your friends. You weren't afraid of a lot of things.

You didn't know how girls like that could ever be popular.

You were popular because…You didn't really know why

You were just you. And that's who you wanted to be.

Gathering your books from your locker you made your way to-

You checked your school schedule


You made your way to your class, the bell was going to ring soon so you may as well start making your way there now.

You took your time walking over there and arrived right on time, taking your seat you rested your head on your laced hands and listened to the teacher.

You yawned again.

:::Arthurs' POV:::

I watched __________ as she yawned.

A smile tugged at my lips.

She was adorable.

My smile faded slightly as I remembered who she was…and what she was like.

She was popular, she was well-liked…She probably didn't even know who I am…

I forced myself to stop staring at her.

She was a lady.

If you fancied a lady then you should go and introduce yourself, not stare at her from a distance like a creep.

I wasn't really listening to the teacher.

She was such a distraction! But…She was a distraction in the best of ways…

The teacher began giving out names of who will be partnered with whom…

I sighed, I just hoped I didn't get paired with an idiot.

"-And Arthur Kirkland and ________    __________"

I sat up straight, my eyes widened. "I-I'm sorry"

"You will be paired with ________ Arthur"

No way. No way!

I was partnered with _________. This is bad, this was very very bad.

I read what the teacher had written on the board.

We had to write a 8000 word essay on the topic of our choice, we had a few weeks to complete it…So that was plenty of time, but…But in that time working together with her I'm bound to make a fool of myself!

This was bad, this was so bad, I'm going to embarrass myself in front of her or-or something.

I turned to her.

She had fallen asleep, her head nuzzled in her arms, like a sleeping angel.

One of her friends gave her a gentle nudge.

She awoke with a startled yelp "I'm awake! I was awake the whole time"

Her friend gave her the details of what had just happened

:::Your POV:::

"What!?" You screeched "8000 Words!? That's like a whole Wikipedia page!"

"You don't have to do it alone though, we all got partners, and you're with Arthur"

You sighed with relief and watched as your friend went to join her partner.

You looked around eagerly for yours "Arthur!" you said happily as you stood up and made your way over to him.

He was the Student Council president. Everyone knew him.

His eyes widened and he looked away as his gaze met yours.

You frowned and made your way to his desk.

"You're Arthur right?" you asked. Awkward if it was the wrong person.

"Uh-Um Yes, yes I am"

You smiled at him. Phew~ "Cool!" you took the empty chair from another desk and sat beside him. "So I guess we're English buddies now!"

He gave a small smile back, it only made your wider. "Yes. I suppose we are"

Arthur gave you the more detailed details.

You two had to write an 8000 Word essay on a topic of your choice, it was due in a few weeks. The topic could be on something fictional or non-fictional.

You two were discussing what it should be about.

"We should definitely chose an interesting topic" he said thoughtfully

"Yeah, but something that will be easy to research"

He nodded in agreement.

"-Also, you might think I'm weird for this, but I don't trust the internet~" You said. It was true! The internet could be completely unreliable at times, and you preferred a more reliable source. Like a library or something"

His eyes lit up slightly when you said that.

"Y-Yes, I agree! A Topic that it interesting and unique…But easy to research as well!"


You tried to think.

Think, think, think…

"Arthur looked like he had thought of something.

"What?" You asked eagerly "what did you think of"

"O-oh it's nothing" he frowned and looked off in the distance "It's ridiculous"

You leaned closer, nudging him persistently "I bet you Five bucks it's not"

He didn't say anything

"Please, please tell me~ I'm all curious now!"

He sighed "Uh-Well, I was just thinking perhaps, if it's possible, we could pick the Topic of Mythical Creatures" he looked away

This guy was a genius

"Like urban legends and folklore and stuff?" you said excitedly

He looked at you, wide eyed and nodded.

"Yes!" you exclaimed "That's the greatest idea ever!"

It was perfect! Not only was it interesting, but the library had a whole hug fragging section on old tradition, folklore and urban myths.

You hopped childishly on your chair "Let's do that, let's do that!"

He chuckled "Very well then"

You smiled wider.

You could just tell that this was going to be fun~

I fell asleep in my English class once, and my friend kept poking me (she didn't wake me up though)  and the teacher never noticed I was asleep XD

I fell asleep in Algerbra the other day. Someone woke me up when the bell rang, and I said what reader-Chan did. Word for word.
My teacher eventually saw I had fallen asleep again, and he poked me for five minutes before I got up. He sent me to the nurse because he thought I was high my eyes were so bloodshot and droopy and shizz. And I fell asleep while the nurse was doing that field test thingy that the cops do when they see a drunk driver...
I was sent back to class.
And I looked like crap the of the day.
I have spammed you with my long comment. Sorries!  -///////-
