Italy shuffled into the cafeteria, his tummy emitting a loud rumble - entirely too loud to have come from such a small boy, really. But having to listen and stay awake for all those lessons really worked up his appetite. He had nearly dozed off several times during class, but unfortunately had an attentive teacher. Every time his eyes started drooping, the teacher would call on him to answer a question. And he hadn't known, which embarrassed him. The teacher talked so fast..it wasn't his fault the lesson went in one ear and out the other! From what he heard, the lessons sounded scary anyway..full of things like "war" and "enemies", maybe it was best he hadn't been paying attention.
But for the time being, he didn't have to worry about that. Because it was lunch time, and then recess! "Ve, I wonder what they have to eat today? I hope it's something good.." He got into line (thankfully there were only a few kids ahead of him) and stood on his tiptoes, trying to see what they were serving.

Greenland had the most uneventful history ever, and her classes had been moving along quickly. Still, it was still a lot for a little girl to process, especially with as short of an attention span as her. She just wanted to run around outside and play and classes were so boring. She even fell asleep! But now her tummy was all rumbling and her face all pouty from hunger. The big kids had pushed her back at first (to get all the good stuff first!) and she couldn't even reach the counter that well! It was just not going so well for her.
That's when she noticed a girl.. (boy?) that was just a little bit bigger than her in line. She couldn't be that mean right? Shyly she walked over to her and tapped her shoulder lightly. "U-Ummm, e-excuse me but ummm.. can you p-pass me a tray please?" She said quietly in her small, high pitched voice, keeping her eyes on the floor. "I-I'm just a bit.. t-too small to reach or see.." It made her a bit frustrated, being so small. If her super Nordic family were here they could help her but they were no where in sight! So hopefully the girl in front of her could help.
(sorry, chibitalia is just so cute, you can't help but get gender confused >w<)

Chibitalia was so focused on seeing what was being served (he still couldn't tell! It looked like the staff was putting fries on a tray, but beyond that, he couldn't tell what else they had in the serving pans) that he jumped a little, startled when he felt someone tapping him. "Ve!" He turned around to see who had tapped him and saw a small girl standing behind him. "Oh! No problem! I can reach those!" It was a bit of a reach for him, but he grabbed a tray and handed it to her with a smile. "It's hard to reach the trays or see the food. They're soooo big!" He pointed at the counter.

She smiles shyly as she accepts the tray, turning a bit red. "T-Thank you." She held the tray close, in case it slipped out of her grasp. Looking down, she slid her foot across the ground nervously. "I... I'm G-Greenland." Greenie couldn't tell by her accent where she was from, but it was something European. She wasn't really European but she was by association!!
She stood up on her tippy toes, she tried to peek at the food. "I-I wonder what they're s-serving.." She was a bit picky, preferring fish foods and sandwiches. She really loved whatever Denmark made but he wasn't making lunch today.. "C-Can you see?" Perhaps she was tall enough to get even a glimpse of what was being served today. They should really put a menu up...

"Ve, n-nice to meet you, Greenland! I'm Italy~" Italy smiled at her, a bit shyly. He was always nervous when it came to meeting new people, especially other nations - what if they turned out to be bullies? But Greenland wasn't a bully, he was pretty sure. She seemed nice.
"That's what I've been trying to do! It looks like they have fries.." The lunchline was moving and Italy was finally able to get a glimpse of the main course when he saw what was on the tray of the kid next to him. "Uh..I'm not sure what it is!" He pointed at it. It looked like some meat wrapped up in flatbread with tomatoes and lettuce on it.

She smiles in a way that's meant to show how happy she is but it still comes off shy. Even though Italy was a nice girl looks could still be deceiving. "L-Like a sandwich?" She really enjoyed sandwiches but it sounded really foreign to her and it made it a bit weird to her. What if she didn't like it? She was taught not to waste food after all. Hopefully Italy would eat it for her if she didn't like it.
Standing up on her tippy toes, Greenie tries to get her tray on the counter so they can put her food on it with success. "I've never seen these before! How strange!" But it smelled really good and it made her stomach rumble. She went over and grabbed her apple snack and her apple juice. Apples were just so yummy. "Doyou w-want to sit with me I-Italy?"
"Ve..I think so!" Italy nodded. He eyed the taco once it was put in his plate. It didn't look bad! It really was just like a strange sandwich... Of course, he wished it would have been pasta day, but hopefully that was coming up soon! He got his juice too and exited the lunch line.
"Yes, let's sit together!" He said, smiling. This girl seemed nice and he was happy that he was already making friends. "Over here!" He put his tray down on the little table (which was thankfully shorter than the lunch line counter had been!) and sat down.

Slowly she took a seat at the table, after placing her tray down first. "A-at least the tables are small enough for me." The lunch room was starting to get crowded and it seemed all the kids were bigger than her. Why couldn't she be big just like Denmark? With a little pout, she stuck the straw in her juice box and took a sip. At least Italy was nice.
But she realized she knew nothing about Italy. They were never mentioned in her classes. Where was Italy anyways? Her ignorance made her turn red a bit, embarrassed that she didn't even know where Italy was on the map. "S-so.. Italy, c-can you tell me a bit about yourself?" At least this way she would learn more without telling her that she was really clueless.

Italy was sizing up his taco, trying to figure out the best way to eat it. The toppings kept coming out! He picked some of the lettuce up and stuffed some back into his taco, trying not to let it fall apart. It was hard to keep it together with such little hands!
"Ve..about myself?" Italy looked up from his work with the taco (he had finally managed to keep it together, though the fact that toppings were falling out seemed unavoidable.) "Hm, well, I like pasta and painting pretty pictures and gelato! Oh..and cats and dogs. I like all animals! As long as they're not scary...How about you?"

Greenie had already gave up on picking it up and eating the taco with her hands. She had a soft shell taco so she started eating it with a fork and a knife. The information she gave her was good friendship wise, but it still didn't help the poor little nation figure out where Italy was located. She found in history class that she was kept isolated for awhile, which explained her lack of world knowledge. She just knew Iceland, Canada and Russia were close to her in the arctic. Three out of hundreds of countries, that wasn't useful at all.
"I-I like painting too. And puppies! Pa- .. Denmark let me have one since we have so many in my country. I wanted lots though!" Useful questions, what was useful... "S-So do you like your neighbours? I haven't met any of mine yet here. How about you?" That would narrow it down, right? Except she didn't know where any other countries were... great...

"That's great! I wish I had a puppy." Italy said, swinging his legs. His country had a lot of roaming animals that he liked to play with, but he didn't officially have a pet. "Uh my neighbors? Ve..well..I haven't met many yet. I have a brother, but he seems kind of mean.." His brother was always grumpy or yelling about something. "I've met a few other ones too.. uh..what were their names? Austria and Spain.. "
