"Please don't make me ride it." Matthew stared up at the roller coaster in dread. It was Matthew's first time at a fair and his brother Alfred was determined to make him ride a roller coaster. They invited you to come along because a) Alfred loves hangin' with his chick friends and b) Matthew felt more comfortable with you around. And you enjoyed his company as well.
"Calm down, bro!" Alfred slapped his younger brother on the back. "It's not like you'll DIE!"
The Canadian let out a squeak and bit his lip, "Well, ________ and I wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel."
You smiled and nodded, "Yep!"
Alfred whined, "Aw c'mon, _______!"
"If I buy you some fries will you stop?" you crossed your arms in an annoyed fashion.
"Okay!" the American smiled. He watched you walk away and nudged his little brother, "So...... you and ________, huh?"
"W-what?" Matthew stuttered. He did have a huge crush on you but he didn't want to ruin anything. So he kept quiet about it. "N-no!"
"I have a dare!" Alfred waved a finger infront of Matthew's face, "If you grow the balls to kiss ________ and confess your undying love to her before we leave, you don't have to ride the roller coaster."
Matthew's face turned bright red. He couldn't do it. How could he? What if it ruined everything? What if you rejected him? It would all be over. But Matthew REALLY didn't want to ride the roller coaster. He swallowed roughly and shook his brothers hand, "Deal."
You made your way back over, holding the cup of fries, "Here."
"Alright!" Alfred snatched the cup out of your hands and crammed several fries into his mouth, "Hey, why don't you guys ride the ferris wheel and I'll go find Artie."
You smiled and nodded, "Meet us back here, okay?"
But Alfred was already running off, not even thanking you fro the fries.
Matthew hugged himself nervously as both of you took your seat in the cart. You smiled at him softly. You (h/c) locks blew in the breeze and your (e/c) eyes looked bright and happy. The Canadian blushed. You looked so beautiful.
The ferris wheel started up and Matthew let out a surprised gasp at the sudden jolt. With out thinking, he grabbed your hand. Your face heated up and you rested your head on his shoulder. He smelled like maple syrup.
"Yeah?" you looked up at him and smiled again.
He blinked and looked down, blushing, "Uh, look!"
Matthew gestured to the view from the top of the ferris wheel. You could see all the way to the beach. The lights were turning on as the sun set behind the tents. You gasped, "It's so beautiful!"
"L-like you!" Matthew blurted out. He hid his face in hise hands shyly.
You blinked in surprise then moved his hands away, "Really, Matthew? You think that?"
He nodded slowly, his hand tightenng in yours. He squeezed his eyes shut and jerked foreward, pressing his lips against yours lightly. You blushed then kissed back. He tasted like maple syrup, too!
The Canadian pulled away and he murmured, "Je t'aime."
"I love you too, Matt!" you leaned foreward and rubbed your nose against his, still holding onto his hand tightly.
"Hm?" you hummed happily.
He wrapped his arms around you, "I'm scared of heights!"
The two of you walked towards Alfred, hand in hand. he turned and smiled brightly at you both, "Sup dudes!"
Matthew blushed and looked down. Alfred blinked, confused, then laughed, "You guys kissed! Good job bro!"
"Shut up!" Matthew blushed. You smiled and kissed his cheek, making him blush more.
"So, am I gonna be an uncle?" Alfred teased.
You punched him in the arm, "Shut up."
The American walked away laughing as you turned to your Canadian boyfriend smiling. Matthew smiled back and looked down, his face still red, "I'm not afraid anymore."
He looked up and faced you, a smile on his face, "I'll ride the roller coaster now."
You smiled and led him to the line, his hand clutching yours. Matthew truly felt safe now with you.
