Check Mate

He leant forwards; the sword he held at the other's neck nicking the skin beneath is slightly as he licked his lips. Eyes sparkling dangerously, Prussia let a slight leer light his features as he fought to hide the way his chest heaved with exertion.

For all that he had been pinned to a wall, England looked almost entirely unaffected.

He merely looked up to meet Prussia's gaze -considering the albino calmly, perhaps even with disinterest. "I'm sorry, what was that?"

Prussia huffed in annoyance, trying to ignore the trickle of sweat rolling down his forehead. They'd been fighting for a good couple of hours, blades flashing as the last embers of the sun died out and gave way to darkness; neither had managed to gain the upper hand for more than a few moments yet. Prussia intended to change that. "I said, y-"
The sweat had run into his eye and the split second of hesitation it induced was all England needed to hook a leg around Prussia's ankle to have them both tumbling to the floor, Prussia's sword clattering on the floor as England's flashed into life again as it was freed.

A/N: This is a drabble that I wrote for the fanfiction meme (found on my dArt page) for anyone who may want to read it without having to wade through all of my waffle beforehand! XD It basically said to write a few sentences (*cough*blasphemy!*cough*) for your favourite pairing or character.

As usual, I'm always at a loss when it comes to thinking of titles; thankfully, although whitewings9 says otherwise, she's awesome at thinking of them (...seriously, she's thought of names for at least three of my fics ^^' )! As you may have guessed, she thought of the title for this~ ^^b
