Modern Love! ((EnglandxReader))
Arthur quickly buttoned his shirt and buckled his belt as the morning sun shone through his window. 'Dammit I'm going to be too late by the time I arrive...' He slipped his shoes on and threw on his coat.
I catch a paper boy
but things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
but I never wave bye bye
but I try
He ran down the street then forgot how he was supposed to get to this stupid wedding. He sighed and grabbed his head, smacking it to jog his memory. "Dammit Dammit Dammit!!!" He looked around for anyone who could give him directions to the Church and saw a boy throwing newspapers onto lawns on his small bicycle. He stopped the young boy as the cold wind caused the both of them to shiver. "Young man, do you know the directions to this Church?" Arthur showed him the Wedding invitation that held the Church's adress and a picture of it. The boy nodded as he gave Arthur general directions on how to find the large building. "Thank you!" Arthur sprinted off as the boy waved goodbye Arthur yelled 'goodbye' but the boy didn't hear as he continued delivering his papers.
Theres no sign of life
it's just the power to charm
I'm lying in the rain
but I never wave bye bye
but I try
The streets of London were empty as Arthur continued making his way towards the Church. He crashed into someone leaving their apartment but never stopped even when the person began cursing at him. Rain began to pour onto the city as he groaned and tried to shout an apology to the unfortunate pedestrian but Arthur couldn't be heard over the droplets of water crashing into the pavement. There was no way he was gonna make it.
never gonna fall for
modern love, walks beside me
modern love, walks on by
modern love gets me to the church on time
Why was Arthur even doing this?! He and ____ were only friends, right?! Best friends at that, so why would Arthur be feeling this way now?! He was on his way to ruin the best day of ____'s life for God's sake! When he found out she was engaged he felt a little twinge of pain but he just shoved it away and congradulated her. At the rehersal dinner, he felt like choking someone, but maybe it was because the Frog was there. He didn't know why, but he did know this man wasn't right for ____ and he had to stop this wedding.
church on time, terrifies me
church on time, makes me party
church on time puts my trust in God and man
____ and *random guy name* were standing at the front of the church as the priest continued on with the ceremony. *random guy name* looked at ____ and smiled at her as ____ smiled back. She glanced at the seat empty Arthur was supposed to be sitting in then at Francis who was near the spot. Francis shrugged his shoulders and shook his head as she turned back with a sigh. *random guy name* nudged her and whispered "Forget him, all he will do for you is hold you back when you try to move forward. You don't need him." ____ gripped the flowers tightly and replied "I can't, he is my best friend..." "Do you, _____, standing in the pressence of God and these witnessess, solemnly pledge your faith to *random guy name* Do you promise to live with him according to God's ordinance in the holy estate of matrimony; do you promise to love him, comfort him, honor, and keep him, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, keep yourself only unto him, and through God's grace to promise to be to him a faithful and devoted wife as long as you both shall live?" ____ looked down at her feet and back at the Priest. "I-" Suddenly the doors swung open as a soaking wet Arthur ran in and threw his arms into the air. "I OBJECT!!!" Everyone's eyes widened and some women even fainted along Francis. Arthur realized all the people in the church were staring at him and he finally felt how cold the pouring rain was and began to shake in his soaking suit. ____ ran towards him and hugged him. "Arthur, you came! Lets get you dried up!" She took his hand as people watched her walk off with Arthur and *random guy name* stood there, pissed at the world for having this happen.
God and man, no confessions
God and man, no religion
God and man don't believ in
____ sat Arthur down onto a chair as she wrapped a towel around his shaking shoulders. "Arthur you must be freezing." She draped more towels onto his quivering body as he took in how she looked in her white wedding dress. 'She looks as beautiful as the day we met...' ____ sat across from him and gave him a small smile. He sighed and rubbed the back of his head, keeping his gaze on the carpet. "I take it I ruined your wedding?" ____ sighed and lifted his head so he could look into her eyes. "No...I'm glad you did that...I was starting to regret all of this after *random guy name* told me to forget you..." Arthur chuckled and sat up. "He said that? Pardon my language but he's a wanker." ____ nodded and laughed along with Arthur. "You're right...So why did you come and not let me go through with this?" Arthur froze and crossed his arms looking away from her. "I just...knew he wasn't right for you...I mean, I know they say opposites attract but you two are nothing alike! You're smart and funny and creative and kind and loving and just down right gorgeous and he's just...bleck" ____ blushed and played with her hands when Arthur realized everything he had just said and cleared his throught. "You...you think I'm beautiful?..." Arthur sighed and smirked at her flushed face. "No...I said you're gorgeous...there is a difference, love." He took her small hands in his and pressed his forehead onto her's. "I couldn't bear to see you in the arms of someone like him..." ____ smiled at him but the door slammed open as *random guy name* burst in and took ____'s wrist in his tight grasp. "We have a wedding to finish." ___ tried prying her wrist away as she whimpered in pain as he squeezed harder. "No we don't!" Arthur stood up and punched *random guy name* square in the jaw and he fell to the ground, knocked out with just one punch. Francis and Alfred stood in the doorway and laughed. "One punch?! what a pussy!!!" Arthur smacked the back of Alfred's head and Francis just laughed even more. "WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE WHEN IN THE PRESENCE OF A LADY!" ____ giggled as the two began to bicker while Francis just stood beside her and patted her back. "You made the right choice, choosing Arthur." "...I know..."
