Word count: 677 (WOW i’m pas terrible)
Ink and Parchment was one of the only ink and parchment in
New York, and the store got decent business. However, there was a man that came
in nearly every other day, and it was beginning to worry you. You’ve worked in
your father’s shop since you were fifteen and you enjoyed in greatly. The customers
were usually quite pleasant, and often stayed for coffee or tea. All except
this man. He would always buy two pots of ink and two packs of parchment, every
two days. How he went through all of that in two days, was beyond you, and
frankly, you were quite curious.
Two days had passed since the man
had last visited and you knew his visit would be due soon. “Good morning.” Well
speak of the devil.
He sounded oddly chipper this
morning. “Hello sir.” You greeted with a smile, reaching for a tea cup on the
counter. “Coffee this morning?”
He turned around, distracting
himself from the black ink pots. “Yes, I suppose.”
Your eyes widened a fraction at the
unusual agreement, but you smiled none the less. The man collected his normal
goods, placed them on the counter, and took the coffee gratefully. “(Y/N).” You
offered your hand to him in an awkward introduction.
He raised an eyebrow but took your
smaller hand. “Alexander Hamilton.”
“Ah, it seems I can finally put a
name to the face.” You shot him a warm smile and leaned forward on the counter.
“So, now we’ve been acquainted, I
have some small questions.”
Alexander looked slightly skeptical
about your forwardness but didn’t object. “How do you ever go through so much
ink and parchment.” You asked, glad you could finally get the questions
answered, that would resurface every other day.
He sipped his coffee and sighed. “I
guess you could say, I write like I’m running out of time.” He let out a small
nervous chuckle and set his down his cup.
“If you write so much, do you get
an adequate amount of sleep?” Your concern for this man was a little
Alexander’s chocolatey eyes widened
and scowled. “What’s it to you?”
You smirked at his attempt to look intimidating,
your mind racing with questions. However, a few stood out, all concerning your
unrecognized attraction to this man. “Alexander, you need to get sleep to
function!” You stated, leaning further towards him.
“What do you know about sleep?”
“I pride myself on my education.” You
“Fine! If you know so much, then
tell me what the symptoms of sleep deprivation or insomnia are.”
“Gladly! Excessive yawning, memory
loss, cognitive dysfunction, small hallucinations, and even death.”
His eyes widened a fraction at your
extensive answer. You grinned, pride following through you. Little did you
know, Alexander was far more than impressed, he was completely enamored with
the ink and parchment owner’s daughter. These feelings had been developing for
quite some time, and were one of the main reasons he visited this specific shop
so often. (Y/N) had met pretty much all of his standards!
Your eyebrows knitted together as
you tried to awake Alexander from his thoughts. You had taken the time to study
him up close, due to the fact you were extremely close to him. Eye bags hung
under his eyes that were a lovely shade of brown and his dark hair was tied
back. He had well-trimmed, stubble that accented his face. All and all, he was
certainly attractive. “Alexander, are you alright?” You asked, concern lacing
“May I write you, (Y/N)?” The
question surprised you to the least.
Alexander, asking to write you
after you just argued him, most likely sharing similarities to an old married
couple. You weighed the pros against the cons and decided that you would allow
Nodding, you smiled at him. “Of
He smiled widely at this, payed for
his items, and walked out of the store with a bounce in his step.
Sure enough, the next day you received
a letter form a mister A. Ham.
