Quite sometime had passed since your last encounter with Austria. Before you two had parted he'd promised to make up for his behavior towards you. Today was that day. He was throwing a rather lavish ball as an apology. You had never attended a ball before, but it would be awful to skip a ball that had been thrown just for you.
There you stood, looking over the crowded dance floor for Austria's face. The constant twirling of figures made it almost impossible for your eyes to focus on anything. Then, you saw him. His eyes locked on yours and he walked straight to you from the opposite side of the room.
"Hello '_____', I"m very glad you could make it." He took your hand in his and kissed it. "Would you be so kind as to allow me this dance?" Without waiting for your response, he walked you onto the busy floor. He brought you close in his arms and began to dance with you. Though you'd never danced before in your life, with him leading it came almost naturally. "You look beautiful." He was looking straight into your eyes, smiling warmly at you.
A Blush fell over your face. "Thank you, You look rather handsome yourself." Austria spun you around and dipped you in perfect sync with the music. You became completely lost in his arms, you had no idea how long you two danced together. Without either of you noticing the dance floor became less and less crowded. The firsts lights of morning slowly began peering through the windows.
The music stopped sometime later, though it only seemed like moments to you. Austria stopped dancing and kissed you, holding your hands close to his heart. "Thank you so much for coming, this wouldn't have been worth anything without you here with me."
You smiled, realizing now you two were the only ones left on the dance floor. "I wouldn't have missed it for the world."
His face suddenly went very red and solemn. While still staring into your eyes, he dropped down to one knee. He reached into his back pocket and removed a small black box, holding it up for you to see.
"I apologize before hand, I'm not very good at this kind of thing." He opened the box, revealing a beautiful, glittering ring inside. "I would be very honored, and proud, if you would be my wife." After he spoke he held his breath, as if afraid to move at all.
You tackled him to the floor, throwing your arms around him and hugging him in the tightest hug you could muster. "Yes, yes, yes a thousand times yes." You gave him hundreds of little kisses all over his face.
Austria hugged you back, then slipped the ring on your finger, it fit perfectly. Cheers went up from all around you both. Everyone emerged from their hiding place and rushed towards you and Austria. "Thank you."
Italy was the first one to you."When is the wedding? Will there be pasta? I can make it if you want. I love weddings you know, lots of pretty girls."
"It took you long enough dude. I thought I was gonna fall asleep under that table." America hugged you both.
Britain smacked America on the back of the head. "You did fall asleep, I woke you up. Congratulations you two."
