“Well.” There was a jingle of keys and Arthur turned his head to the sound. “Since Mattie and Francis went out tonight, what do you say I treat you to some classic American food?”

Alfred gave him a bright grin and Arthur eyeballed him. He was wary of this so called ‘classic American food’, but he wasn’t particularly enthusiastic about having another go in Alfred and Matthew’s kitchen, either (he swore it was the American appliances – everyone back in England loved his scones).

“Alright,” he agreed gingerly, setting aside his novel. His bad feelings only increased when Alfred let out a loud whoop of celebration.

“Mattie never does this with me,” Alfred explained as he disappeared into the hallway. “Come on, let’s go!”

“Alfred, please tell me you’re not taking me to …” He trailed off as he heard the front door slam shut. “You git, at least wait for me!”


“… cannot believe you actually took me to McDonald’s,” Arthur growled.

Alfred pouted and pointed excitedly at the display. “But look! They’re giving out Pokemon toys with the Happy Meals!”

“Happy Meals,” Arthur repeated, dumbstruck. “We came all the way here so you could get a Happy Meal with a Pokemon toy.”

“Actually,” Alfred said with a small smile. “I was kind of hoping you would get one too and I could have the toy.”

“No.” Arthur turned his back on the offending fast food joint. “I absolutely refuse. Drive us back, I’ll cook dinner.”

“Wait!” Alfred grabbed his arm. “Come on, at least let me get a Happy Meal?”

Arthur sniffed. “Fine, let’s go in.”

Alfred bounced towards the door with another cheer. He held it open for Arthur, who scoffed but blushed, and then joined the lineup inside.


“Happy Meal, please,” Alfred told the lady at the cash with a charming smile. “And could I please get the Pokemon toy?”

She gave a small laugh as she collected his money. “I’ve had a lot of people your age asking for those lately.”

Alfred just beamed in response. Arthur huffed and rolled his eyes at the immaturity.

“What about you, my dear?” The lady smiled at him.

Alfred slung an arm around his shoulder. “Nah, he’s too high class for -”

“I’ll have the same thing as him,” Arthur cut him off, jerking his head at Alfred. “And make sure my toy’s different from his please, I think he wants to collect them or something.”

Alfred was stunned into silence for a split second before he turned to Arthur with a huge grin. “Awww, Arthur, you didn’t have to!”

“Shut up,” Arthur grumbled. “Just take the toy, okay?”

“Okay.” Alfred took the two Happy Meal cartons when they were offered and thanked the lady. Once they were outside, he took a peek into them and then suddenly wrapped Arthur into a tight hug and burst out laughing. “You’re the absolute best! These were the last two I needed!”

“Dork,” Arthur murmured affectionately, giving Alfred a peck and blushing right afterwards.


A/N - This hit me just as I was going to bed, and I haven't written anything for the Summer Camp yet, so I turned the computer back on just to post this which means it's completely rough and un-beta'd, so forgive me and feel free to point out mistakes orz

I have two of the Pokemon toys myself and yes, one of the workers there actually did tell me there were a lot of people my age asking for them XD

This is sort of meant to be set in the the esthetic of lostness 'verse but idek ugh it's late XD

It's so, so cute. ;D

I suppose Pokemon was the essence of our generation -- became popular in the 90s didn't it? And now we're all growing up... :P

Thank you! XD

I know my friends and I were much more excited for the toys than any children I know of XD Watching the Pokemon anime (whatever season they're on) now just doesn't seem as magical as back when we were young XD I can't say anything about the games, since I just only got into those myself recently ..

Jeez, I sound like an old lady reminiscing about the old days xD

D'awww Arthur, your 'doting boyfriend' side is showing. :)

I've got a friend who's currently on this same mission. I'm worried that if she doesn't get this last one soon, she's going to destroy us all.
