EnglandXReader~ Englishmen are policemen
Well this was bloody fucking brilliant now wasn't it?!
You were only a little bit over the speed limit... only a little....10...15... 20 miles an hour over 45... that was only a little bit. Right?
Okay, it was only going to be a ticket... only a ticket. All you had to worry about was your boyfriend finding out about it...
Yes he might be a police officer but there's still a chance he wont find out about it if the officer walking up to your car now didn't recognize you as his girlfriend. You shrunk into your seat slightly as you listened to the footsteps on the pavement come closer and close... he was at the back of your car now.
You squeezed your eyes shut as you felt the police officer walk up to the window.
Oh God oh God... God dammit iiitttttt....
"May I please see your license and registration please love?"
Of course. OF FUCKING COURSE.
It had to be Arthur. Your boyfriend. The one you were going to try and keep this a secret from.
" Excuse me, but I asked to see your- ," He turned and froze. His face went from the usual serious police man look to the furious boyfriend face you tend to see often in
the recent weeks of your relationship.
"____________." What the bloody hell were you doing, going 25 miles over
the speed limit?"
" W-What are you talking about Arthur?," A nervous smile stretched across your face. You didn't know what the hell you were doing trying to defend yourself against him about speeding, when he just chased you down the road with his nice police car that he let you drive occasionally in secret... but..
"Love. Don't lie to me..."
".... I'm sorry Artie... I just... I wanted to get home and make dinner before you
" My bloody cooking is not that bad!"
" N-No! Not because of that Arthur!... Wait... d-do you even know what today is
" Yeah, oh. I cant believe you Arthur! And you get mad at me!?"
" L- Love, I've just been busy with work! I swear I didn't forget about our anniversary
darli-," The radio on his shoulder went off.
" Attention all units. Attention all units. There are reports of a shooting at 42 Wallabyway. I repeat, 42 Wallabyway. All units for backup."
Arthur sighed. " Love, we'll talk about both of us later, but I need to take this call. You know I do." Yes, you knew Arthur was the big cop around here. He was the most respected one, and you were glad. He could boast about something, and he could find something to have pride in. But... he's been taking extra shifts... night shifts and doing even more paperwork than usual. You wondered if it was... just to have some work to do for a promotion..or... if it was to spend time away...from...you.
"Fine. Go." You sighed and started the car again. "Ill see you at ho-"
"Im sorry, but I wont be able to make that call. Please send Officer Jones in my place. He'll be able to handle it." You looked up at Arthur, and he smiled at you.
"Got it Kirkland. Over and out." Arthur then turned the radio off and took his hat off.
"Love... Im hurt that you really thought that I would forget our anniversary... our 3rd one as well." He reached into his pocket quietly for something.
You watched his hand for a second and looked up at him. "Arthur...?"
"Darling can you get out of the car please?" You blinked and nodded quickly. You got out of the car shyly and looked at him.
"You're not going to arrest me are you...?" Arthur Kirkland chuckled as he pulled a little box out of his pocket.
"Not quite Love." He then got on his knee carefully. Your eyes widened as he held the box up to you, and opened it to show a ring. You put a hand to your mouth slowly and you
looked at him shyly.
"________ ________ ... You've made me a very happy man. I cant tell you how much you've improved my life and who I am. I'm an asshole I know, I'm caught up in keeping my pride and I know I tend to annoy you sometimes.. But... I want to spend the rest of my life with you... Will you... Will you marry an asshole like me?"
You felt tears slowly fall down your face. "O-Of course Arthur... o-of course..."
He grinned and slipped the ring carefully onto your finger. He stood and gave you a tight and loving hug. "Why're you crying Love...?"
"I-Im just so happy.."
"Good... I'm glad... now... about the speeding ticket."
"You're kidding me."
