You walked up to the entrance of the beautiful and traditional home. As a close ally to the country of China, you found yourself here to figure out agreements for imports and exports from both of your countries.
For some reason, whenever you asked if you should travel this home, he was so against it. Only today though, he cordially invited you to his beautiful homeland to talk about your alliance.
Knocking on the doors lightly, you heard no one cry out to you. Actually, all you heard was something crashing before running footsteps came to the door for you.
The doors opened up to China, aka Yao with his hair in disorder and sticking out in all directions. It wasn't even tied up as you had been accustomed to. His eyes held exhaustion within them and he was out of breath.
He fell forward a bit and you took him in your arms,"Yao! Who did this to you!?"
"Aiyah...you don't need to worry about-"
You were about to stop him when he paused, looking down by his white mandarin pants. He then picked up a small boy who was found clinging to his leg into his arms. Behind him, three other children rushed to his side to peer curiously towards you.
"I'm sorry __________, but can we do this another time aru?" He said silently as the other three started to literally climb on him and start swinging on his arms. You suddenly realized why he looked so distraught.
Grabbing the little girl who was currently wrapped around Yao's waist, you smiled,"I don't mind helping you at least." The young girl took a handful of (h/l)(h/c) hair and pulled on it. You hid the pain behind a small smile,"I always wanted a younger sibling."
"Yay! Big brother Yao! Can your friend stay!?" Squealed the boy in his arms as he grabbed onto his red mandarin shirt,"Please Yao! Please! Please!"
The other three started squealing in agreement to the statement. Yao sighed and allowed you in holding the girl in your arms. You let her go and the four ran off together in a different direction.
"Do you maybe want to rest for a bit Yao? You seem...tired." You asked a bit concerned for the older nation.
He shook his head a bit and gave a faintly reassuring smile,"I'm used to this. They'll tire themselves out after awhile and then take a nap..." He sighed a bit,"I'll be fine."
Both of you enjoyed a brief moment of peace before the little boy who Yao picked up came back into the room. "You! Lady! You originated in my country! So you're mine!"
He jumped on you, clinging tightly onto your leg,"I'm Korea! Im Yong Soo!" He exclaimed as the other three entered the room. "And those are my brothers and sister." He pointed towards a boy who wore cloths identical to Yao's,"He's Hong Kong and-" He pointed towards the boy in a child's kimono,"He's Japan and she-" He pointed towards the girl,"Is Taiwan! And they all originated in Korea da-ze!"
Looking towards Hong Kong, you noticed he was holding a plastic rubber ball and he was eying China at the moment. Before you knew it, he was chucking it at his face and causing the great nation to fall.
The ball went back to him and you snatched it from him,"No, no, that's not very nice-" Korea grabbed it with ease and started hitting your head with it continually. "Im Y-Yong! Stop!"
All three laughed and you felt someone tugging at your pant sleeve. Taiwan was standing there, looking at you expectantly. You lifted her up,"What's wrong?"
"You're not gunna be our new mommy, are you?" She whimpered a bit before starting to bawl. In a panic, you tried to comfort her while still being attacked by Korea in the head.
China had gotten up after Hong Kong's attack and took the small girl from your grasp, comforting her while you pried the small boy off of you and set him on the ground.
Smiling and breathing out a bit, you got an idea. "Who wants to go outside and play 'hide-n-seek' with me!?" All three boys cheered before rushing out of the house. Looking over at China, you have a simpathetic look before going after the three who had already hid.
Walking around the back, you looked for any signs of the three. The Asiatic trio didn't abide well to the rules though for in a matter on minutes, they were jumping on top of you in unison and knocking you to the ground.
Eventually, Taiwan and China came out, Taiwan still rubbing her red and puffy brown eyes. All of you ended up spending most of the afternoon running amuck outside before the four children started getting tired.
When you and Yao rounded up all the kids, you brought them all in. You were stuck carrying a nodding-off Hong Kong on your back (him clinging onto your (h/c) hair for balance) while cradling a sleeping Japan in your arms.
"__________...are you gunna live with us...?" Asked the sleepy, monotonic boy who clung onto you from behind.
You shrugged a bit, getting tired yourself,"I don't know...I think I'm gunna have to go home after you all fall asleep." He whined a bit, but you shouldered it off a bit.
Following Yao in, he went into his room and laid down while Korea and Taiwan climbed next to him, curling up beside him and nodding off. You did the same, placing the sleeping Japan beside him while Hong Kong climbed off your shoulders and lay next to him.
You turned to leave but were stopped by Taiwan, grabbing the back of your shirt,"You don't gotta leave yet, do you?" She asked in a saddened tone. "At least stay a little bit longer?"
You sighed and laid down beside China, placing your head on his chest as Taiwan curled up between you and Korea clung to the back of your shirt. You started to him gently to coax those who still lay awake into a peaceful sleep.
Without warning, you felt China's lips slip into place with yours. Your (e/c) eyes opened in shock and sure enough, he was doing as you suspected. He pulled away gently and saw your bewildered face,"Sorry aru..."
You shook your head, relaxing with him once more. "I really like you Yao..."
"I really like you too aru..." He whispered back, kissing your forehead. "Do you maybe want to stay? They seem to really like you aru."
You nestled comfortably beside him before taking hold of little Taiwan who lay in front of you,"Maybe I'll stay with you guys...just for a little while longer. I think they'd like that."
