The next day, England was online as soon as he could be. As were you. You sent simultaneous invites, causing each other to laugh. "So, what map do you have picked out?" England asked, rather happily. "Well, I downloaded a carnival map. Basically you just have fun, there's not really any goal.", you said, just now realizing his British accent. You set the game mode and map.
"GAME START". You gave England a tour of the map. "See, here's the mini-race, and there's the bounce-house, and there's the shooting range, WAY over there is the two slides, and right here is the bumper-carts.", you said, then promptly taking a deep breath after the mouth-full of words. The first thing England did was go over to the bumper-carts. You hopped into the ghost on the other side. "1, 2, 3, GO!!!!!", you narrated. You shot off of the platform, plowing straight through England's ghost, leaving him standing next to the engine of his vehicle, which was wobbling around and about to-"-EXPLODE!!! RUN MAN!!!!!" you shouted into your mic, as England used his sprint pack to get away from the explosion.
"Thanks", he said, with a slight sigh. "Hey, I just realized that we haven't properly introduced ourselves." England added, shortly after. "Oh yeah!" you said, just now realizing that you have been using unspecified names and/or user names to identify each other. "Well, my name is Arthur." he said. "My name is Jess(insert name here)" you said. "Hey, lets go check out the shooting range! C'mon!", you said, pushing his spartan across the map.
You picked up a sniper rifle and began shooting the never-ending trip mines. England did the same, then you got an idea. When England went AFK for whatever reason, you pushed his spartan into the shooting range(where the targets are), and waited for him to come back. You heard footsteps getting louder through his mic. You began to giggle deviously. "Hey,-" he said, but stopped before he could finish his full greeting. His spartan's body turned back and forth.
Then, in the dead silence, he heard the sound of someone reloading. You could hear him gulp and you laughed maniacally as the bullet was launched out of your gun. "Head-shot". You continued to laugh, and as you did, he came up behind you and melee'ed you in the back, causing you to fall to the ground. He chucked a bit. "~Sweet revenge~", he said with pleasure.
Then he heard a fuel-rod shot coming from spawn. The next thing he knew there was a misty, green, missile. "NEVER PICK A FIGHT WITH ME!!!!! MUHAHAHAH!!!!" you yelled proudly. "Okay, fine, you win." he said reluctantly. "Hey, now that all of that is over, wanna go check out the slides?" you asked, smiling(although England couldn't tell of coarse). You both walked over to the slides.
"This slide is way more fun than this one because your more likely to die on it." you said, rather casually. "Wait wha-", he was cut-off by you pushing him down the slide. You followed after him. Both of your characters were screaming as you hit the bumps on the slide. When you hit the bottom you barely survived. You had landed in a large pool of water, with a HUGE staircase.
"Please tell me we don't have to hike all of the way up there." England said pleadfully. "Sorry." you said with a bit of a giggle as you began up the stairs. When you finally got back up to the top, you heard a background voice coming form England's mic. "HEY! ARTHUR! I got something awesome to make this bet even MORE priceless!!!", the voice said. You could hear England sigh. "Here, I'm gonna' hook-it-up. I'm just going to need to unplug this for a minute!" "NO WAIT!-".
He was cut-off. It said he had left the party and game. With a sigh you waited. After about five minutes it finally said he was back online. You sent him an invite, but he had sent a "Kinect-chat invite". You pressed "Accept invite", as you dusted off your Kinect with your other hand.
Once it took you to the Kinect-chat menu, he began to appear on screen. He had bright green, shiny eyes, messy blonde hair, and HUGE eyebrows. England went wide eyed as your picture appeared on screen. For a few seconds, there was absolute silence. Then a man with glasses walked past England's screen. He did the classic whistle for when you see something pretty.
You blushed and stared off to the side with an embarrassed look on your face. England saw this and got up for a moment. You heard some yelling in the background, along with some British insults. He came back with a red, aggravated look on his face. "Sorry about that." he said, starting to cool down. "So who is he?" you asked out of curiosity.
"Oh, he's my brother, Alfred.", he said, staring towards the ground grumpily. Then England noticed a boy walk by on your screen. You turned around. "Oh, Arthur, this is Josh." you said casually. "O-oh, is he your boyfriend?" England said, staring down sadly. "OH GOD NO! He's my brother!" you said defensively, making England sigh with relief.
"So, where do you live?", you asked out of boredom(although his accent made it obvious). "UK, but right now I'm visiting my brother Alfred, in America. You?". "I'm in US too!", you said excitedly. "Hey, there's a gaming convention next week, maybe you could meet me there!", you said now, even MORE excited. "Okay, s-sure, I guess." he said, not quit sure what to say. "Oh, crap, GTG." you said.
"Hm? Oh yeah! Sorry" he said, looking embarrassed. "O.K. , BYE!" you said, then you left the chat.
