omega recoil


A/n: This was based off something I thought of a while back. An AU where Arthur is an omega and lives in a small town where no one finds him attractive or mate-worthy because they’ve all literally grown up with him. He’s the local lil’ bro. A new then alpha moves in and he’s practically head over heels with him… and Arthur has no idea what to do.

They were no stranger to Arthur stopping by.

The omega stumbled in his boots and Alfred wondered for not the first time how he could even walk in them at all before he shut the door to his room and pushed the other boy onto his bed.
