"___________...__________ are you even listening to me?" your friend/crush asked.
You nodded almost automatically. It was so hard to pay attention when he was looking at/talking to/or even being near you. It was so hard to not attack him with a hug because you had the biggest crush on him. Only problem was that he was completely oblivious. The only person he talked about was his sister. He even told you at one point when he was younger he wanted to marry his sister.
"Then what was I just saying?" he asked crossing his arms.
Franticly you searched your memory, "Ummm…fall dance?"
Nikolai huffed, but nodded, "Are you going with anyone?"
You shook your head, "No…no one has asked me yet so I'll probably just stay home and do what I do every year."
"Watch (favorite romantic movie) until you start crying?"
"Yeah," you sighed, "what about you?"
"I'm going with my sister and brother." He smiled, oh God he smiled again you lost track of what he was saying. "You should come with me…"
You nodded, "Sure…"
He patted your head and stood up, "You don't have any dress so I'll take you shopping ok?"
Again an automatic nod. "Sure. Wait…what?"
"Let's go _________," Nik said dragging you to a store.
"B-but I look awful in dresses!" you protested.
"Well you're not wearing a tux," he said.
You grumbled as you picked out a (favorite color) dress and tried it on in the dressing room.
"_________, let me see," said Nikolai.
"No!" you shouted, "there's no way I'm wearing this thing longer than I have to. It fits so I'm done." You walked out in your regular clothes. "There I have a stupid dress are you happy now?"
Nikolai pouted, but drove you home.
"Thanks for hanging out with me Nik, I had a great time," you said giving him a hug. But he stopped you and gave you a quick kiss on the cheek. Turning bright red you stuttered, "S-see you later."
With that you ran into your house.
The Belarusian groaned at his stupidity, why couldn't he just muster the courage to move a few centimeters to the right?
Time skip to the dance.
"Come on __________ we're going to be late!"
"But I look terrible!"
Nikolai finally managed to open the door and saw you, his jaw dropped. "_-___________?"
You shouted at him, "I know I look bad, you can just stop staring now!"
"N-No," he shook his head and walked over to you. Taking you in his arms he kissed you, "You're beautiful…"
