Also, it's a Harry Potter crossover. Based on a UsUk... (don't judge me)
Please excuse the grammar/spelling errors.
England x Reader - The wizard and the girl
Arthur's POV all the way!
I walked through the halls this early morning. I earned a lot of soft whispers from other students.
"He came, it's that guy..."
"Clear a path..."
"Don't get too close..."
Hey, did you know? That if that guy's name comes out of your mouth...
You'll be cursed...
Always, always... I've been alone. That's why,
A child grasped my hands, she said between her sobs.
"Thank goodness! I'm... Lost... We can go back to the dorms!"
I looked back at her, I was also lost. Tears were in my eyes as well. The girl had (h/l) (h/c) silky hair and sparkling (e/c) eyes.
"You too right? Let's go back together."
When I met that lost child and, I grasped that hand for the first time,
"...Hey, how about letting go of my hand?" I said.
"No way! Let's hold hands."
'It hurts...' I thought.
What's this, such a coward. It's also the first time being shocked by someone.
--- Above all
I was having a stroll at night in the Forbidden forests, that is, until...
"Hey you! From the other day?" a voice called.
I turned around to see that girl again.
"I want to thank you! I really wanted to say thank you then, but after you saw me off, you kind of disappeared..."
I looked back again to the front. Shit... It was so dark I thought my face wasn't exposed.
"Um, afterward you returned to your dorm? I worried for a long time." She said.
I looked back at her completely shocked.
"Thank you so very much! I was so glad you were there!" She gave me a smile.
It's the first time since I was born that someone appreciated my presence.
Then, everyday she would follow me...
"Ah! There you are!"
From the hallways...
Under my desk...
And even from up the trees...
Then finally, she cornered me at a tree...
"Tell me! Your name!" she shouted.
"H-how persistent! Stop chasing me around about my name everyday!" I replied.
"Just tell me your name! I'm tired of calling you 'you' already!"
Without reacting, she bent down and grasped my shoulders.
"Tell me now, hurry up!"
"..... You've been in this school for a month... You must have heard the rumors about me... That the one who calls my name will be cursed... It's true." I said softly.
There was a short pause but then she finally said
I eyed the girl with shock. I was about to say something when she spoke.
"I've heard the rumors about your curse! Because the person himself just said it! And? So what about it? I want to hear your name!" She smiled at me and released the grip on my shoulders
"Hey! This isn't a joke! A long time ago the one who bla bla bla, bla bla bla "
"My name is ______ _______!"
"Listen when people are talking to you!"
I eyed her.
"I came to Hogwarts to become a hero! I won't lose to some curse!"
Hero she says?
"So you can relax and give me your name!"
I put hands on my face and cried.
Don't be stupid...
"Huh? I can't hear you~"
"... A-arthur Kirkland. That's... My name!..."
I didn't want to
She smiled at me and held my hands. I felt warmth from ____'s smile and from her hands.
"Nice to meet you, Arthur!"
Let myself believe those words...
And so we,
At the Great Hall...
"Ar~thur~! Good Morning ~!" _____ called me.
'Don't shout my name, idiot!' I thought to myself.
At some empty hallway...
"Got it? You know my name so don't call it! You'll seriously be cursed."
"Arthur, you've got bedhead."
"Arthur, you're a year above me?" ____ asked me pouting.
"I'm a second year, so you should be calling me Sempai!"
"Nope, I'll call you Arthur."
We spent everyday together,
"Herbology and Charms are hard, but learning to fly is so much fun!" said _____ with sparkles in her eyes.
"I don't really like flying on a broom... But it would be really different with wings."
Though she called my name so many times
"Arthur! I've decided to join the Quidditch team!" She said with a really determined look on her face.
"Don't you have to be really great for that?!"
For some reason, it didn't invoke the curse.
But I couldn't be relieved.
For this girl to remain safe
We'd have to part ways.
I couldn't let go...
Even though it was wrong.
"Arthur, your magical power has become stronger, has it not?"
I nodded in reply.
"It's best to perform an incantation to hold back your powers, agreed?"
"And then, let's change your room and... enhance our plan of defense."
"And it seems that lately you've been close friends with _____."
I twitched at that point and bowed my head with regret.
"I'm so- I'm so sorry..."
My eyes widened.
"That's great, Arthur."
It's not good, professor...
The professor didn't get angry,
I saw ____ coming right in my direction. Her face was slightly annoyed as she said
"Geez~ Arthur. Where did you go? I was looking for you!"
"Well, anyway! I'm not going home for Christmas Holidays!"
"Eh? Why not?"
"Because you're staying here!"
"??" My eyes widened.
"Because, I want to be with Arthur!"
I couldn't return to being alone..
