"Big brother Artie!" I shout at Arthur, my older brother. He turns around, a big smile on his face. I run up to him, with big brother, Alistar, Seamas and Dylan standing behind me with wide grins and Alistar puffing his cigarrete like the chimney he is. I haven't told him that, though. Anyway, Arthur has just arrived from a 3 hour flight from America, where he was having his World Confrence and where he was staying with Alfred to do.. stuff. I haven't seen him in 2 weeks, and I was really bored with just my 3 older brothers at home in Cardiff. I really wanted to go too, but I got lectured by Alistar and Arthur that I wasn't old enough and that I probably wouldn't be recognized as a country. I was shocked but I protested anyway, being the stubborn child I am, saying that I am a country. They didn't let me go, and I got lonely. It was boring as heck.
"Big brother Artie!" a shout comes up from behind me, and I turn round a smile already formed on my face. Alistar, Seamas and Dylan are standing behind Ariel, and she is running up to me, full speed and huge toothy grin on her face. She's so cute. I just arrived from a 3 hour flight from America. I was there to go to a World Confrence, and to stay around with Alfred, and the other countries eventhough most of them go home aftrer the confrence. Ariel jumped up and straddled me, her orange dress billowing about her and making me stumble. Gah, that gal had put on a bit of weight the last time I had seen her. But not too much. I have to admit, I have Ariel too, and it's kind of heart-warming to see all the Kirkland family (apart from Sealand), here waiting for me. I missed them. Not Alistar though. "Ariel... I missed you so." I say, bringing her into a warm embrace once she has jumped down from her position, as my older brothers walk up and we embrace as one big group, smiles as big as a rainbow.
