Austria stood at your drop nervously running his fingers though his dark brown hair. Do it! He told himself. He reached for the doorbell and pulled away. Frustrated at himself he stomped down the pathway and down the street, not looking where he was going he bumped into your best friend, Sophie (sorry random name I choose).
“Watch where you’re going- Oh! Hey Austria. What what’s wrong?” she asked looking into his face.
“I was um…well…” he said unusually flustered.
“I bet you were about to confess your love to (y/n) like all the other boys weren’t you?” she said smiling and brushing herself off. Austria hung his head, shocked she guessed so easily. “What really?!” Sophie stared him, her hands frozen mid brush. “I was just joking.” She said. You took a closer look at his face and said, “Well you better come inside you look awful.”
Once inside Sophie brewed a pot of tea. She didn’t like tea, but you did and so did Austria. She brought the tray in and set it on the table. Austria sat in armchair, one hand over his face. “Come cheer up. It’s not like she rejected you…. did she?”
“No” he said miserably, “I didn’t even make it to the doorbell.”
“The doorbell? No, no” said Sophie shaking her head, “if you’re going to confess do it in a way she’ll love.”
“You know what she likes. You’ve grown up right next door to her your whole life. When you were little you used to take you clothes and-“
“Okay, I get…wait how do you know about that?!”
Sophie shrugged and said, “(y/n).”
“What else did she tell you? Wait…. don’t tell me. I rather not know….”
“Can we just get back on topic?” he pleaded.
“Right.” Sophie sighed, “If you really want to impress her do it in a way she’ll won’t feel uncomfortable or something memorable, but not to flashy…that’s not her style.”
“I don’t quite follow you.”
Sophie sighed again in exasperation, “Men.” She said wearily to the ceiling. “Okay.” She said turning back to a baffled Austria, “Just do this.”
Next Day at the Park
“A-Are you sure?” asked Austria nervously straitening his gray suit for the 100th time.
“Yes, yes.” Soothed an unusually patient Sophie. “It will be fine. Look there she is.” She pointed to the top of the hill in of the town’s park. Your body was stood out against the late afternoon sun.
“Sophie. I can’t do it.” Said Austria, his glasses where slipping down his nose.
“Oh come on.” Said Sophie losing it, “You’re never like this, just go and do it.” Beside I know something you don’t.” She shoved him and he stumbled forward from the trees where they had been hiding.
“Hey what do you know?” he hissed back, but too late. You heard his voice and turned.
“Austria.” You said happily, but confused. “There you are. I got this note from you asking me to meet you here. It’s been so long since we played here as kids…wow your looking fancy.” You looked him up and down.
“I have something I have to t-tell you.” He said.
“Are you alright?”
“Fine.” He gulped and took a deep breath. Then bowed and said, “(y/n) I love you…. would you please go out with me?”
There was complete silence. Austria didn’t dare move. Finally you said, “Took you long enough.”
“W-What?” Austria looked up his glasses on the tip of his nose. He quickly pushed them back into place.
“Took you long enough.” You repeated, “I thought you’d never ask me.” You smiled down at him .The late sun glistening off your hair, turning it a thousand different shades.
“I don’t get it.” Austria looked at you.
“I told you I knew something you didn’t,” said Sophie coming on form the bushes, “You didn’t believe me when I told you there was nothing to worry about.”
“I” Austria looked form you to Sophie and back to you, “You mean all that worrying was for nothing?”
“Yep pretty much.” Said Sophie smugly.
“It’s okay.” You said, “I’m still happy you confess to me.”
“But-“ Austria started, but you gave a big hug and he stopped protesting.
“I think I’ll eave you two love birds alone now.” Sophie winked and left.
“Hey Austria?” you said leaning against him when Sophie was out of sight.
“Will you play me something?”
“But I don’t have an instrument with me.”
“Then let’s just hum.” You sat on the hill in Austria’s arms watching the sun set into the hills. You hummed all your favorite song and sang a few. It seemed like a silly way to end your day, but for you two it was perfect. There was nothing to worry about…it was just humming after all…. and it’s pretty hard to notice when you mess up on humming, especially when you with the one you love.
(Super cheesy I know XD)
