This is my first fanfic EVER, and I can not believe it came out so damn FLUFFY. But, hey, what can you do, right? The title is a lyric from Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy

It was 8:00 a.m., and a certain grumpy Englishman was staring groggily at the American sleeping away next to him. Memories of last night's activities were running through the Brit's mind, making him blush a deep shade of red.

'The bloody git got carried away again', Arthur thought as he stared at the numerous bite marks adorning his neck and chest in the mirror next to the bed. He of course did not acknowledge that he had greatly enjoyed receiving them, as well as how he himself had left just as many marks on the sleeping Alfred.

"I hate you.", the Brit said, scowling at Alfred. As if he had heard, the American frowned and then pouted, which Arthur would deny forever as being adorable at all. Without thinking, he reached over and brushed some stray strands of dirty blond hair out of Alfred's face, letting his hand linger on the younger man's cheek, stroking gently as if apologizing for his earlier statement. In response, Alfred sighed contentedly in his sleep and leaned into the affectionate touch of his lover. Said lover smiled at this, and slowly brought his face closer to Alfred's, blushing at the thought of what he was about to say.

"Damn yank…I…", and exasperated sigh, "…you have no idea how much I wish I could hate you. You're so bloody arrogant, going on about how great a hero you are, smiling at the most stupid things, not to mention you always insult the cooking I work hard to make for you!" Arthur took a breath and whispered, "But…I know that I could never hate you, or that damn smile of yours." His eyes squeezed shut. "I never want to see you not smiling, not ever, got that? I…I…l-love you, Alfred." Arthur angled his head upward and sweetly kissed the American between the eyes. "And you better not forget that okay? Don't think I'll forgive you if you do, just because you were busy sleeping a perfectly good day away and didn't hear me."
