It seemed to the states that the guests arrived all at once.
"Another round of beers for the awesome! Keseseses!"
"Don't touch me, taco-eating bastard! Go get me something to drink, jackass!"
"I totally would have brought my pony here if I knew you liked horses!"
"I think Angletere is avoiding me... What do you think ladies?"
Some of the states were hurrying around bringing countries drinks and snacks. Virginia was up at the turntables grinning at the crowd in front of her. America beamed at how well the states were behaving.
He felt a tap on his shoulder, "America, what are these minors doing at your party, aru?" America turned around to see China. America laughed, he had almost forgotten that some of the countries hadn't properly met the states.
"They're my states, yo! They aren't "minors", and anyway, they won't be drinking! Stop acting old and party!" America shouted.
China scowled and went into the throng of nations and states.
California went into the pool area, getting uncomfortable with the closed area. Beach parties were more her thing. She saw Hawaii already doing laps, and Florida was tanning on a lawn chair. The two Italian brothers were arguing over whether or not to start a game of Marco Polo, while Germany was trying to get them to wear sunscreen.
California cannonballed into the pool splashing the Italys and her sister. Romano spun around, face as red as the tomato in his hand.
Michigan was still in search for the party lighter when she accidentally stepped on a long white scarf. It took a few seconds to understand that she was behind Russia, one of most powerful nations she had ever met.
He turned around, his sweet face having a cruel look. "What are you looking worried about?" He said, just loud enough to be heard.
Michigan, determined to find the lighter, straightened. "I'm sorry, I'm looking for something, and didn't pay attention to where I was going." She said, her voice hiding the tremble.
Russia said nothing, just looked at her. "You should become one with Russia... Its better than hiding behind America." He smiled and reached for her arm.
China appeared and grabbed the tall countries arm, pulling him back. "Russia! Latvia is here, he's looking for you!" Russia immediately turned around and went to the small nation.
Michigan looked relieved, "Thank you ma'am."
A stricken look passed over China's face, "I'm a male! Aiyah!"
Connecticut was sitting by the food, chatting with England. "I can't believe that we haven't talked since I was a colony!" she laughed, "Letters aren't as good as face to face."
England nodded, "It has been a long time. Feel free to visit whenever you wish, we can have tea!"
As they were talking, Connecticut saw a blond head approaching from behind her old caretaker. "Is that France?"
England looked behind him, and ran toward the bathroom. The state heard a click of the door lock. France stood where the Brit was only seconds earlier.
"Where is Angletere? I've been looking for him since I got here!" He said, eyes darting around. His eyes stopped on Connecticut and he smiled. "I'm sorry madam, where are my manners? I am France, and you are?" He took her hand and gently brushed her hand against his lips, smiling. Connecticut tried to get her throat to work properly.
Nevada and Florida were still arguing about America's big surprise when Molossia hit him upside the head.
"Hey asswipe! That was for breaking my sunglasses last week!" Molossia slid down his newest pair, inspecting Florida from over the top of them. "How you doing?"
Nevada growled and shoved the micronation, "It was breaking your cheap glasses or setting Montecore on you, Princess! I wouldn't have to beat your ass everyday if you would stop going onto my land! And quit looking at my sister!"
Florida looked between them, got up and left. Molossia groaned, "Look what you did, McFuckNugget! You made her leave before I could even get her number! And besides, your tiger couldn't even draw blood. Its a pussy through and through!"
Nevada balled up his fist and swung.
Hawaii had gotten out of the pool after her sister had splashed her. Wringing out her hair with a towel, she walked to the changing stall that was by the pool area. She had gotten her fresh air and was ready to deal with the guests.
She turned a curve, and a hand grabbed her arm, pulling her into a bush, she tried to scream, but a second hand clamped over her mouth. Her eyes got wide as the house left the view.
