AmericaxReader—Typical Winter Days
Ah yes, it was that time of the year once again. Everyone bundled up in their snow coats and wore gloves and boots to preserve their heat, and the scent of warm soup wafted through the air. Despite the cold weather, it was a very good time of the year, especially for cuddling… Which was what you and your boyfriend Alfred were doing at the moment.
“Nothing like Christmas reruns and my squishy Alfie~” You joked, resting your head against his shoulder. Alfred pouted like a little kid.
“I’m not squishy. That’s just my jacket, babe.” But he knew you were only kidding. You always said stuff like that, and he would always pout, which always resulted in you smiling at him and kissing him to make him feel better.
“Of course it is.”
The two of you snuggled together for a good two hours, just watching things like Rudolf the Rednose Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. Sure, you two were young adults, but cartoons and reruns were your lives (plus Alfred refused to watch horror movies with you). After some point, though, Alfred had to go use the bathroom, so, unfortunately, you had to get up and lose his warmth.
You noticed how cold it was without him, even with the blanket covering you. But you and Alfred just had some clam chowder that he so graciously made.
“I know! I’m gonna make some cocoa!” You said, smiling at your idea. “Alfred’s gonna be so happy that he’s gonna call me the hero!”
“Alfred is infectious. I have to stop talking like him.”
And so you went to work, going to the kitchen and heating up two cups of milk in the microwave. Once the milk was warm enough, you added some chocolate powder, giving your cup a bit more than Alfred’s. You topped it off with a large amount of whipped cream and a sprinkle of peppermint, to add to the Christmas reruns.
“Yo, ______, where are ya?” You heard Alfred call from the living room.
“Over here!” Even though what you answered wasn’t very helpful, all Alfred had to do was follow the sound of your voice.
“You’re making hot cocoa? Did you remember to add marshmallows~?”
“…It was supposed to be a surprise, but I forgot…”
Alfred wrapped his arms around you and brought you into a smushing hug against his chest. He shook you a bit, laughing his heroic laugh.
“______, did you really think I was gonna let you off the hook for forgetting my marshmallows~? Hahaha, just kidding, babe~ This is awesome! Now we just need some burgers and it’ll be perfect!”
You laughed along with him. “Oh, come on! We just had soup!”
“The hero’s always up for burgers!”
“The hero’s going to get squishy if he keeps eating burgers~”
After a bit more laughter, Alfred let you go and went back to the living room to wait for you and the cocoa. You carried a platter with the two cups and gave one to him. The two of you returned back to your respective cuddling positions and watched more reruns.
Yup, you’d never give up these sweet winter days~
