I frowned at the paper in front of me. My song was finally complete. All my feelings for my best friend and secret crush Arthur, finally put on paper. Now there was only one problem.

When the hell was I gonna sing it to him?

This seemed like such a good idea at the time...

A knock on the door drew me out of my thoughts. I went to answer it and who else would it be but the heartthrob himself.

"Oh, Arthur! I didn't expect you to be here so soon." Not that I minded of course.

"Actually love, I'm a little late... Sorry."

"Oh, is that so?" Sometimes it scares me how I can get so lost in my thoughts.

He looked around the house and sweat dropped. "Were you daydreaming again, _____?"

I blush, looking at my house. It was only a little messy,  but I was extremely embarrassed. Arthur's house was always so clean! He was always outdoing me in this aspect and as a woman, I felt ashamed about that.

"Haha, you know me so well..." I trailed off scratching my head. "I'm really sorry. Come in, have a seat. I'll clean up a bit."

He smiled and came in, sitting down on the couch. "Are your folks around?"

"Nah, it's their anniversary, so they went to a fancy hotel to rekindle their relationship." I gagged as I started cleaning up a little.

He laughed. "Don't be that way, love. We'll be in that same position one day."

My heart stopped. "W-what?"

"Erm... I mean, you know... I'm sure you'll find a wonderful guy and get married and um... Do stuff together."

"Oh... Right!" Of course that's what he meant. Stupid.

After that,  I just kept picking up around the house in silence.

"The house is clean, _____. You don't have to do that. Or I could help if you insist."

"No! You're my guest, that's rude." With my lazy ass not really wanting to clean anyway though, I took this as permission to stop.

"You're so British." I teased, sticking my tongue out at him.

He blushed and looked away. "No duh! I'm British, you git!"

"Okay, I'll go make you some tea."

Arthur's POV

I slapped myself on the head. "We'll be in that position too someday? I can't believe I said that!" Could I be any more obvious? I might as well have just told her I'm in love with her!

I've been in love with her for a very long time now. But I'm not sure how to tell her. Hell, I don't know if she even feels the same!



Something caught my eye... A CD on the floor with "For Arthur" On it

I blushed. She made a CD for me? I wonder what was on it...

"Arthur, Tea's ready!"

Crap. If I took it now, chances are she'd notice. As much as it pained me, I put the CD back and went to join her.

I wasn't done with it just yet though... I had a plan.

~Time skip to tommorow! ~

The next day I put my plan into action. I brought a regular blank disc imitating her handwriting the best I could. Then we she was out of sight, I dashed to her room, looking for the CD.

I face palmed when I noticed it was in her radio. Maybe it wasn't such a secret if she left it in plain sight all the time...

Regardless, I switched the CD's and was and mentally patted myself on the back. I'm SAS; of course I'm good at espionage and data retrieval!

When ______ nearly caught me, I figured it'd be best to just go home. I could barely contain my excitement as I placed it in my laptop and put in my earphones.

(skipping the song because you'll find out what it is later... If you don't already know *cough* it'sinthetitle *cough)

I must have listened to that song 50 times. The guitar, her voice... everything about was perfect.

And it was perfect in more ways than one.

As I put the song on repeat for the 51st time, I picked up my guitar.

I know exactly how I was going confess to __________.

~ Week long time skip! ~

Reader POV
"Okay, today's the day!" I told myself. "Today, I'm gonna give him the CD!"

Yeah, I had this same conversation in my mind everyday. Obviously, it wasn't going to happen. I guess I was just too much of a coward.

What also made it difficult was that Arthur was acting very strange. One minute he was flirting rather blatantly with me, the next he was blushing and running away. He mostly did the latter. It hurt! I felt like I was losing my friend and I didn't even know why.

He even broke our daily visit after school routine. Something about "important business".

As I sat pondering my friends odd behavior, a possibility ran across my mind that made my heart sink.

Maybe he was seeing someone.

Once that thought got stuck in my mind there was no getting it out. It may as well have been fact. Needless to say, I had trouble focusing the rest of the day.

I got home and finally let loose, crying into a pillow on the sofa. I felt stupid for letting myself get so worked up over something that may not be true, but I couldn't help it!

Hearing a knock on the door, I wiped my eyes and put on  a fake smile. I opened it and my heart sank.

"Oh, hi Arthur..."

He took immediate notice of my attitude and became concerned.

"Love, what's wrong?"

I couldn't bring myself to tell him.

"Nothing."

"______ please, you know you can tell me anything."

"I'm sorry, but I just don't want to talk about it."

He sighed. "Alright love. But will you at least give me a chance to cheer you up?"

"Uh... Yeah, sure. I guess."

He smiled and lead me to the couch. He pulled the guitar out of the case my inattentive failed to notice he had and began to play.

My eyes widened. That guitar riff... There's no way...

Then I heard his voice.

"There I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired, lonely place
Walls of insincerity
Shifting eyes and vacancy vanished when I saw your face
All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you"

This was MY song! I couldn't believe it.If I wasn't head over heels for this guy, and he didn't have that voice, I would've been pissed.

"Your eyes whispered "have we met?"
Across the room your silhouette starts to make it's way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks like passing notes in secrecy
All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you
Oh ______ I was so enchanted to meet you too."

Oh god, my brain is fried right now. Never in a million years would I imagine this happening.

"This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you, too"

Arthur took the instrumental break as an opportunity to wipe the happy tears threatening to fall from my eyes.

"The lingering question kept me up
2AM, who do you love?
I wondered till I'm wide awake
Now I'm pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door
I'd open up and you would say,
Hey it was enchanting to meet you
Oh _____ I was so enchanted to meet you too'

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you too."

At this point my mind was somewhat working and I figured I'd sing along.

"This is me praying that this was the very first page"

"Not where the story line ends"

"My thoughts will echo your name"

"Until I see you again"

"These are the words I held back as I was leaving too soon"

"I was enchanted to meet you, too"

"Please don't be in love with someone else"

"Please don't have somebody waiting on you"

"Please don't be in love with someone else"

"Please don't have somebody waiting on you"

"This night is sparkling, don't you let it go"

"I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home"

"I'll spend forever wondering if you knew"

"This night is flawless, don't you let it go"

"I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone"

"______, I'll spend my whole life wondering if you knew"

"I was enchanted to meet you (too)*"

We sang that last line together. He put a finger to my lips, signaling he wanted to do the rest of the song solo.

"I was never in love with someone else
I never had somebody waiting on me
'Cause you were all of my dreams come true
And I just wish you knew
______ I was so in love with you."

As soon as he put his guitar down, I jumped on him and pulled him into a kiss which he returned with equal enthusiasm.

After a few minutes we pulled apart. I noticed at some point during the kiss pulled me onto his lap, but that thought was pushed out of my mind as I remembered something.

"You know I'm still pissed at you for stealing my CD, right?"

"Awww, but I sang it back to you in a spontaneous and romantic manner!"

"Don't care, I'm still pissed." A devilish smirk made its way to my face as I leaned in and whispered seductively in his ear. "I'm afraid I'll have to punish you."

"Oh?" he responded playful tone. "What did you have in mind?" he breathed onto my neck before kissing it.I giggled and shuddered at the feeling.

"Oh, I don't know..." I started, hearing him chuckle darkly before I got off his lap. "How about no kissing for a week?" I winked at him and walked away.

He looked extremely hurt for a second, but then that devilish smirk returned to his face.

He knew I wouldn't last that long, and so did I ;)
Ehhh... idk how I feel about this. I really like this song and I loved this idea in my head, but it didn't quite come out the way I wanted...
In my opinion, the beginning's okay, the middle's... meh, and the end is the best.
Song is Enchanted, originally by Taylor swift (which is the version Iggy heard you sing) But the version used in the story is Owl City's remake.
Btw, am I the only one pissed that those two DIDN'T get together after this? FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU, TAYLOR? :iconenglandwtfplz:

OH GOD, somehow I copied the text from one of my faveorites and it was in the story. So sorry about that! It's fixed now >.<
