"Good evening, Aru! It's seven minutes in heaven time!" China smiled and clapped is hands together. "This is my first time participating! I'm excited, Aru!"
"That's right dudes, old man China is joining us today! So stay on your toes! Lets hope pretty lady ____ gets him!" America joked, nudging China.
"Oh shut up America, you stupid kid!" China stepped forward. "Since I'M the oldest, I'll be taking charge, Aru!" He placed the bucket on the table. "Go ahead ___-Aru! Just don't get America, he's a jerk."
You drew a name and looked at the paper. "Oh wow! It IS you China!" You smiled and showed him the paper.
"Yay! This will be fun, I promise! Lets get going!" China pulled you into the closet. "Panda has been looking forward to this all day!" He hurriedly sat down Indian style with both hands on his lap. "So! I heard this was really interesting, aru.neveryones been talking about it! I'm not even sure what it is! But I guess I'll find out Aru! So, about me...I'm the oldest, I do Tai Chi every morning, and I love cute things! Especially pandas and hello kitty, Aru!"
He smiled cheerfully. He was apparently very happy to talk to someone.
"Hello kitty? I love her too! She's so cute! I love pandas too...baby panda's sneezes are so cute." You petted his panda on his shoulder. "Do you have any real pandas?"
"Mhm! A lot of times, though, Russia hides in panda costumes and scares me! He's the worst of everyone! He's so mean! He won't leave me alone Aru..."
"Oh yeah, he scares me a little too...he's got this aura...I just call it the Russian aura." You shuttered.
"Oh really?" China laughed. "That's a good name Aru! Does he try to invade you too? He's just so weird! I'm glad you agree with me, ahen. It's really nice talking to someone like me..." China looked down. You assumed he was embarrassed. His face was entirely red and he began to shake his head furiously. "No, no, no! I'm acting so weird Aru! Like a child! I'm sorry..."
"Why are you apologizing? I was having a really good time, china! You're really nice."
"You think so? R-really? The why don't I have any friends, Aru?"
"I don't know, but listen here...what if I'm your friend? Is that okay?" You tilted your head, smiling, hoping for him to say yes. You really liked him. Such a short conversation proved you had something for him, something you hope could bloom into more than friendship.
"Y-you'd want to be my friend? Y-yes, Aru! That sounds wonderful! Would you like to go to the cherry blossom festival with me next week?" China grabbed your hands and looked into your eyes.
"Definitely." You were relieved, he liked you too.
The door opened, it was America.
"Kay dudes, I don't care if I'm interrupting, get out. I heard cherry blossom, that's gay man, get the hell out." America rubbed his eyebrows.
"No it's fine Aru! No one likes you anyway!" You and China walked out, holding hands.
"We can go to my house, Aru. I want to show you around...I'd like you to see it in case you live there one day..." China smiled at you as you walked in the streets.
