Wait, what? .. What letter?
Does.. that mean you’ve thought about this before?
I didn’t feel right not telling your parents about our engagement, so I sent them a letter the day before. Haven’t heard a response back… Yet.
Sometimes. I think about those paintings. I think about being a family.
You should. My dad would have a fit.
Clara? Yeah… yeah, it is. Where’d you get that?
He’s probably busy having a fit over that letter.
I… I don’t know, actually. I must have heard it somewhere. I like it because it matches with Colin.
Maybe. Is that a problem, Scotland?
I.. think a girl would be nice, wouldn’t it?
Not at all. I’ll just have to start calling you England.
…That would be lovely. Clara’s a pretty name, yeah?
Don’t be cheeky.
…. Now’s good.
Are you turning British on me, love?
Mmm. Good answer.
Oh, fuck you. Jerk.
So, I mean… When do we get started?
So fiesty, Miss Harteve.
Yeah… yeah, he would.
So.. are we really doing this, then?
Nah. You’re kind of a sore loser, Scotland.
If you’re in… I’m in.
I am not! You’re just afraid of losing. It’s okay to admit.
Last year? There was one last year? Oh wow, goodness you have been here for quite some time - haven’t you? So this masquerade theme, it is very well-liked here? How absolutely wonderful! I’m all dressed up but I can’t decide if I want to dance or if I want to watch a performance. So many options…so very very little time.
Over a year, actually. Would you believe people have been here longer, lass? It went well last year, but I don’t know how I feel about it this time ‘round.
I hope you enjoy, though.
If we really tried this time.. yeah. I do.
Don’t try to outdo me. You’ll lose.
Well… I think Colin would like a baby brother or sister.
Oh, yeah? Do you want to bet on that?
I understand — it was… just a thought.
Quit it! I love you. Kiss ass.
…Do you think we could do it?
I love you more, America. Just telling the truth.
That would imply you messed it up in the first place.
Don’t make me cry and fuck up my make-up. I’ll punch you.
Difference of opinions, love. But, either way… I’d be terrified. That’s not saying I wouldn’t want to try again, but still.
You’d look beautiful even with mascara running down your face.
