You sighed, playing with your fingers as you waited for the lunch break to end. Not that you didn’t like your break time, it was just that it was so boring without Alfred around. He hadn’t turned up in the morning, so you guessed he was probably sick or something.
Then again those videogames of his were also a possibility... As you listened to the music coming from your headphones, you closed your eyes. Hoping to get a bit of rest at least, you hummed along with the song gently, your breathing evening out.
When something heavy leaned on your side, you opened one eye irritatedly to see the cause. “Oh hey Alfred.” You mumbled when you saw the American sitting next to you. “Good morning....”
Laughing quietly, you prodded him in his stomach, making him contract it quickly. “It’s not morning anymore.” You told him and his eyes widened in realisation.
“That would explain why everyone’s so energetic....” He clutched his head and groaned, claiming your shoulder. “Alfred?”
He grumbled in reply and shot you a glance from behind his spectacles. “What? I’m tired.”
“Up all night again?” Nodding once, he snuggled closer to you, letting out a deep breath and closed his blue eyes. For a change he wasn’t the impossibly loud gamer you knew and as you gazed at him, his blonde hair falling over his forehead slightly, he looked quite handsome actually.
If only he was always this quiet.... you thought as you brushed some hair out of his face. Smiling sleepily, he caught your hand and pressed a kiss on your palm, instantly making your face flame red. “As I thought...” he murmured and he stood up again, stretching in the process.
“C’mon.” He tugged you up by your hand and you furrowed your brows. “Alfred, we still have school and-“
“Naaah, I’m skipping to go back to bed.”
You huffed, pulling your hand from his grasp. “So why did you even come here in the first place?” Alfred stared at his feet for a moment, glaring slightly as the wind blew in from the school’s exit you were standing in front of.
“I came to see you.” He said, his voice low. Still not meeting your eye, he glanced to the side, chewing his lip. “And as I wanted to see you I came, but because of that I’m really tired. But I still wanted to be with you, so....” he snapped his gaze away from the floor and looked at you, rubbing his neck sheepishly.
“Will you come with me?”
You smiled warmly at him, a blush creeping up to your cheeks as you took his offered hand. “Yeah!”
Alfred sighed blissfully, his arms wrapped tightly around you. He hummed in happiness and you reached up to take his glasses off and place them safely on the nightstand. Scrunching up his eyes playfully, he nuzzled his face into yours.
You giggled gently and messed up his hair, gasping when he kissed the crook of your neck. Your blush from before returned and his gaze locked with yours. He started leaning down and managed to brush his lips against yours briefly, before you pushed his face away.
“Tired people should sleep!” You muttered, his whines turning into chuckles.
After that he fell asleep pretty fast and you watched him with a satisfied smile on your face before the land of dreams succeeded in luring you into its clutches as well.
