I guess one good thing about living in Hollywood is that there’s no shortage of costume shops. I still felt bad about costing Maxxie money so, even though I had my wallet back; I made him go to a kind of cheap place. I was looking through various animal ears when I started to doubt my costume idea.
“Maybe I shouldn’t be a cat…”
“Thought your heart was set on it” Maxxie said, glancing at something.
“Yeah but isn’t dressing up as a cat something girls normally do?”
“Isn’t wearing a dress something a girl would do too?”
“Or a drag queen”
“And I’m neither” he huffed.
“D’you think I’d suit being a cat?”
He looked me up and down and giggled. “About as much as I’d suit a dress”
“I can’t tell if that was an insult or a compliment”
He grinned and I slipped on a pair of cat ears.
He kissed me. “It’s good, but…” he got a pair of bunny ears, “you’re still my Bunny”
I blushed at that. Okay, so maybe my nickname was growing on me. It’s better than “Hads” anyway.
He smiled. “I like both, gorgeous. It’s up to you”
I tried them both on, looking at each one in a mirror for a good few minutes before finally making some kind of decision. “I’m thinking cat…”
He giggled. “Can’t persuade you to dress up as a playboy bunny then? Next year, eh” he said with a wink.
“I don’t think I’d get much candy like that. More like a jail sentence”
He giggled, cheeky bastard.
“Anyway, I don’t see you picking out a dress”
He scowled at me. “I wouldn’t know where to start”
“Ask the chick who works here, then” There is no way you’re getting out of this.
“I can’t believe I’m doing this” he said, blushing.
I grinned. “It’s cause you love me”
“I do” he said, kissing me again.
I kissed back and said “Hop to it Cinderella”
He grumbled a little but eventually went off to find a dress. I looked around for stuff that seemed like it’d work for a cat costume. Since none of the actual cat costumes were designed to fit a nineteen year old, my costume was pretty much gonna consist of me with cat ears. And a collar if I could find one.
Maxxie disappeared off into one of the changing rooms and I gave up on my search, content just to wait for him. Eventually he came out in a nice pink princess dress. He gave a little twirl and giggled.
“Am I pretty?”
I tried not to laugh at the image of it. Of course he was pretty. That doesn’t mean he didn’t look fucking hilarious.
“Y’know what, I think the playboy bunny outfit would suit me better than this”
I giggled. “You’re more than welcome to try one on. But I so have to get a photo f you in that for Cayden”
He tried to glare and flounced off to get a playboy bunny outfit while I worked on trying not to laugh. He poked his tongue out and went to get changed. I poked around a bit more and found a tail but it didn’t look all that great so I put it back. Maxxie reappeared in his playboy bunny outfit.
“Much better,” he winked, “my inner slut feels at home”
“Well as long as your inner slut’s happy” I smirked.
He giggled. “So go on then, Bunny, the dress or this?”
“I still think the dress was better but it’s up to you”
He smiled. “I’ll wear this next year” he chuckled and went to put his normal clothes back on.
I poked around again, determined to find a collar. A red one. With a bell. Maxxie could apparently tell what I was looking for.
“You’re more likely to find a collar in either a sex shop or a pet shop, gorgeous” he smiled.
I pouted. “I saw some kid’s ones…”
He smirked a little.
“I need a smaller neck”
“Well you need a collar, kitty cat” he said innocently and I pretended to glare at him.
He giggled and I poked around a bit more. “Ha, knew I’d find one” I said, holding up a red collar with a bell.
He smiled. “Need anything else?”
“How else does a cat get its whiskers?” I asked, giggling slightly.
“Can’t say I’ve ever questioned it” he smiled.
“Cause everyone knows it’s eyeliner” I said with a wink and he laughed. “I think that’s everything”
Maxxie paid for everything even though I had my own money again. Dude, that’s not how it works.
“I have my wallet back now, y’know”
He shrugged. “My treat”
“You spoil me” I smiled.
He smiled back. “Not as much as I’d like to”
I giggled. “Oh yeah?”
“Yeah” he said, kissing me.
I hummed and he kissed a little harder.
“Down, boy. Save it for later” I said and he giggled.
I smiled and he took my hand. I don’t think so, buddy. I wriggled my hand free and hugged his waist instead. I sighed contentedly and he smiled, kissing my neck. I shivered and smiled when he hummed.
“C’mon, I’ve gotta work on my cat impression” By which I mean take a shower.
I didn’t let go of his waist til we got back to the car. I kind of wished we’d walked, I was comfy like that. Maxxie leant over and kissed me once we were both in and I hummed, kissing back and earning a smile from him.
“I’m gonna take a shower when we get back” How long til he asks if he can join?
“Am I allowed to join you?” he asked innocently.
“Maaaybe” I smirked.
“Only a maybe” he pulled this fake offended face.
“Well if you’re gonna sulk I guess you could” I grinned.
“You perv” I chuckled.
“It’s not my fault”
I laughed at that. “How is it not your fault?”
“My sex drive is back. With a vengeance. I can’t help that”
“Now where did I put my rape alarm?”
He pulled a sulky face and I pecked him on the lips, smiling slightly as he kissed back.
“I believe there’s a shower calling my name” I said as I pulled away, noticing we were already back at his apartment.
“Better get me there quick then” I laughed a little.
