never let your sister do your hair for Christmas. also never let her give you an ugly sweater as a present.
I got inspired by this post and shit happened. XD I’m crying because Envy doesn’t seem to appreciate this, but it’s so damn funny. also Lust seems so satisfied of what she did, she’s so cute. Merry Christmas to everyone~ C:
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I needed to see this colored so sl;aknf;ankfdna; yeah. 8U I used MS Paint again, so sorry for it being rough (I mean this is a rough sketch so it’s hard to start with, and I know that it looks like some hair falls over her shoulder but it’s like whited out and flskndl;alf;a yeah). I think it turned out decent considering what I have to work with XD I also made the “V neck” a bit more apparent too so yeah. 8U I know someone can color this better and I’d love it someone else did it (and if you do send it time ;w;)
Summary: The team has found a way to annoy Bucky, but
you’re not sure what’s going on.
Word Count: 972
A/N: My plans for this part changed like 235,235
times so…I went with this one.This is going to be short (five
part) drabble series because I miss Bucky. Also @bengalikutti is the
reason this is happening. Bless her. Also, not my gif.
“If this is what a half-break-up is like,
maybe we should do it more often.”
i really hope Sunny goes for pastel pink someday. Her bubblegum pink hair suited her so much and i love soft colors too, they really fit our sunshine girl! what colors do you think would look nice on her too?
omg, she would look amazing with pastel pink hair. or even rose gold, that would be so cool. I loved her hair colors during igab (except maybe the green lol) but that particular haircut she had did her absolutely no favors, ugh. i think it’d be cool if she did a silver/grey color like taeyeon had for like a week, but i also really liked the blue/turquoise hair she had during this igab perf (dont remember the date at the moment.) i also wouldnt mind if she did the same shade of blonde she had for hoot again ;;;;;
Another day, another crappy comic where I waste my time working on it.
Happy super belated Valentine’s day! I know I’m, like, almost a week late, but let’s just pretend Ghirahim and Fi were celebrating the holiday this whole time or something.
I also experimented with screentoning Fi’s hair with this comic, cause her hair is blue so it would make sense for it to be “colored” in. I didn’t do it before cause back in the day I did everything in black and white but now that I have fancy pants Clip Studio Paint I can do this that kind of shit. But idk, maybe there’s too much screentone now? I’ve read manga with ridiculous amounts of screentone and it’s a real pain to the eyes. What do you think? Yay or nay?
A/N: I made it! Thank you for the support, it motivated me to keep going all those times I wanted to quit.
I decided to make this last one Tiva, like seriously Tiva, as in, if I hadn’t stopped writing when I did, global warming would’ve accelerated even faster, and I would’ve had to up the rating to Mature.
Day 30: Write about facilities shut down due to the snow.
Plagg was beyond irritated. After being in that im room with that those strangers, she never knew exactly how angry she could be. Muting the channel, she quickly locked the phone and sighed. That Geoff was a pain, he sure didn’t have to tell Chat that. It was rude and hurtful. Yes, he wasn’t her Chat but, he was still one of them. One of her kittens. At least, she was pretty much caught up to date with what happened her. Six people dead. Eight people with horrible punishments.
Lifting her head, she noticed a boy with blue hair wandering. If she remember correctly, this was that HCA im holder right? The one who was not a kid? Although, he sure did look like a kid. Walking towards him, she smiled. “Wow, that weird girl was right. You do look like a kid but, if I am also correct you are not a child right?” Way to make a good first impression Plagg.
Look at them: Chloé’s wearing the same clothes, Sabrina’s wearing green instead of blue/purple/white, Nathanaël has literally changed the colour of his top (the design is still the same) and the same goes for Kim except his sleeves remain red, Rose had shoulder length hair, Max had an afro and changed his top, and finally Marinette has her hair in a bun (also I think she has a block fringe instead of a side). Also what the fuck Max!! Did you really need to block Juleka’s face?! DID YOU?!!
Aww look at them, so cute! Also does this mean that the ship is real?
Marinette’s awkward smile, Kim doing bunny ears, Alya and Kim close their eyes, and Rose is looking at Juleka!!
Fuck you Chloé, there was no need to ruin the picture.
So much better and look how happy they all are that Chloé’s out of the picture.
Kim with the bunny ears on Marinette…AGAIN! Also what is actually happening in this picture?
Lucius straightened his dress robes in the mirror and took a deep breath. His hair had been combed to perfect, and beyond that; his robes had been charmed so that, whatever he did, they wouldn’t look anything other than their best; and his shoes had been shined so well he could see his reflection in them. Narcissa deserved nothing less than perfection. He turned in a circle in front of the mirror, making sure there was not a hair out of place, before he picked up his champagne pink corsage and pinned it to his lapel. The color was laced into Narcissa’s bouquet, draped over the tables at the reception, and lining the aisle that his fiancée would be walking down. Unlike most Pureblood weddings, Lucius and Narcissa had had quite a bit of say in the planning. Lucius wanted their accent color to be such a light pink because it brought out the coloration of Narcissa’s cheeks and pout. It made her look like a goddess. Narcissa had insisted on the corsages as a tribute to the ones they had worn to the Yule Ball. They had hand-picked the flowers for Narcissa’s bouquet together, and helped to arrange them. This was their wedding, there was no doubt about that. However, Lucius was nervous. Not to marry Narcissa, of course not - he had been sure about that since their first kiss - but because it was strictly against Pureblood tradition for the groom to see the bride in her dress before the wedding. Lucius had required it, though. If he cried when he saw her for the first time, in front of their family and friends, he would never live it down. He had to keep up appearances, even if that meant breaking a few rules in the process.
now that i have ur attention, here are me and @aidensmonroe‘s reasons.
s.e. hinton’s name begins with an s. do you know what also begins with an s? suspicious. s.e. hinton is suspicious.
s.e. hinton says that johnny is white, but while in the church, johnny refuses to bleach his own hair because he is “too dark-skinned to look okay blond.”
she only pays attention to c thomas howell and rob lowe. what kind of author treats the rest of the actors who played “her characters” like that?
s.e. hinton says that dallas winston is straight, BUT the book says johnny was the only thing dallas loved. dallas winston is not straight, obviously, and if s.e. hinton was the REAL author, she would know this.
s.e. hinton gets angry when people ask her questions about the outsiders because she does not know most of the answers, as she did not write the book.
the outsiders is a school project by ponyboy curtis. ponyboy curtis wrote the outsiders, not s.e. hinton.
Work in progress! Some of the shots have the sims in them, sorry about that! Currently working on the bakery, as you can see it’s pretty empty. This took so long to complete, many references were used, but I couldn’t get all details correct with what I had. The second floor includes a hobby room, bathroom, and master bedroom, all designed by me as I had no reference for Marinette’s parents room. Maybe once it’s shown I’ll edit it. The sims I created aren’t as close to detial as I had wanted them to be, such as Sabrina, as the hair I used for her couldn’t become a lighter orange, so I worked with the colors I had. Also the outfits were difficult to find for each. I did create Mr. and Mrs.Dupain-Cheng, but I really didn’t like how they came to be, so I left them out.
If you have any ideas on what to do or who to make next, please let me know
Hopefully you like what I’ve done and I’ll come back with more characters and finished homes soon.
This long ass thing is for @bagginshieldisreal, cause I love her and because I wanted to write something from this au and she suggested a Bilbo and Thorin moment after they’d met but I uh… went overboard. It’s mostly their first meeting (but I don’t think she minds? <3)
So I read himerawr’s amazing theory about why Natsu’s hair pink, if his brother has black. You can read it here: X
I also read something like Mashima said he had no reason to make Natsu pink, but he also wanted to end the manga after the Phantom Lord arc, so he probably figured out something for it, at least I love to think that!
To sum himerawr’s theory, he may had black hair, but after he died and was put probably into a bowl full of ether, it turned onto pink.
Proof? When Wendy ate Ether, her hair went pink AND SPIKY. (The focus now is on the spiky.)
I started wondering, and accidentally a chapter, particularry ch 424 popped into my mind…
So I did a little thing, and I’m curious, what do you think? c: omg this is my first therory like thing…
it can be not true ofc but it was fun coloring his hair anyway! :v
SHE’S FINISHED!!! Well, what do you guys think? So I’ll start out with how I made her: She was created using an Ashlynn doll. I did a re-root on her using gingerbread and goldilocks nylon hair and golden blonde saran hair, purchased at dollyhair.com. I removed almost all her original face paint, and repainted her face. Her dress was created from a pattern purchased from DGRequiem. The boning of the skirt was created using Real Leather Craft Lace, purchased at Joann’s, and leather glue. All cloth used was also purchased at JoAnn’s. The shoes were created from Apple White shoes with the bows cut off, and then painted with gold and brown acrylic paint.
I thought she was so funny dancing with Cupid in the episode of True Hearts Day I thought she should show off her moves.
If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.
I mean sure, you could imagine Steve and Wanda’s son as some pretty blonde white boy with magic powers. But, what if, we have him take after his mother and inherit her dark Rroma skin and messy brown hair–he could also inherit Steve’s baby blues–to the point that when him and Steve go out together people don’t believe they’re related.
Also he could get curious about his Jewish heritage and bond with his half-brother while learning about it from him.
Author’s note: An update! Woot! This story will be much better thanks to unspoken-and-wild who has graciously let me into her brain for the art stuff. Go follow her if you’re not already! Thanks to everyone else who’s liked or followed this story, I already love writing it!
Emma looked up from her book.
“Emma, it’s after midnight. It’s
Sunday. Why are you up in the
middle of the night doing laundry?”
Emma shifted in her
seat. The hard plastic of the chair was not doing her any favors. The
fact that their apartment building had its own laundry room was
convenient, but couldn’t they afford nicer chairs? What did their
rent go toward anyway? She ran her hand though her messy blonde hair.
“You know how busy this place can get. Seemed like the best time.”
skeptical. “What are you reading?”
“School stuff. Dry, boring. The usual.” She prayed Elsa couldn’t
see the cover.
No such luck. “Art
history? Since when…” The other blonde’s face lit up. “Oh! This
is about Jones’ class! How did your first day go?”
Emma leaned back in
the chair. “Fine. Like you said, all I have to do is sit there
while people stare at me.”
Rae pulled up outside the chippy and parked Kareem’s car. She was still a bit uneasy on the road, but Raven was a pretty decent driving instructor and she managed to get herself to places she needed to go.
After the accident where Chloe almost died, Rae didn’t think she would ever want to drive, but Raven was a pretty persistent person and usually got what she wanted.
Nervous was an understatement, but she was also very excited. She wondered if Chloe would look different, more grown up. Rae did.
After leaving BU Rae had needed a change. She cut her hair clear to her shoulders and although she initially regretted the decision, she had come to love her new do. It made her feel free. A feeling she had grown to love more than anything in the world.
“You can do this Rae, Chloe loves you” she said to herself before getting out of the car and walking towards the chippy. She had built this moment up in her head. She envisioned walking into these doors to a welcome home party once she had graduated from Uni. Instead she would be walking into a shit storm of her own making. The thought alone made her want to cry.
Mentally preparing herself, she opened the door and walked inside.
Chloe was sat exactly where Rae expected her to be. She was sitting in the same spot she was the night before Rae left town and a sudden warmth filled Rae for a moment. Nothing and everything had changed and the thought was both comforting and frightening. She looked up at the sound of the door closing with tears in here eyes. Rae had expected to find anger in those eyes, not sadness.
“Hiya mate” Rae said cheerfully, hoping to break the tension. No such luck.
Chloe stood as Rae approached the table and threw her arms around her best mate. They hugged for what felt like an eternity, only breaking away when Chloe was ready.
“You better have a good excuse for ignoring my calls Rae, you got ten seconds to explain” Chloe sounded like she was half joking, half serious as she wiped away the tear that fell from her eye. “I’ve missed you so much” she added at the end before sitting down and folding her arms over her chest.
Yup she hadn’t changed. Maybe she looked a bit taller, a bit thinner if that were even possible, and a bit older, but it was the same spitfire Chloe that Rae has always known and loved.
“Chlo, I wanted to call you a million times, but I just had to figure some stuff out and I know that makes me a shitty mate. I am sorry. I came home to see ya, to be with ya. I’m home for good Chloe.” Rae was calmer than she thought she would be. Maybe it was the way her mom had reacted to the truth, maybe it was what Kester had said last night. Whatever it was worked because deep down Rae knew that Chloe was going to be happy for her. Was going to accept her decision and was hopefully going to help her with Jack.
Chloe sat shaking her head as if to say ‘That’s not enough Rae, keep going’ and so she did “I left Bristol in January and moved to London with a friend. Uni just wasn’t for me and I was scarred that you and everyone would be disappointed. I met this gal Raven in a record store and it turns out she owns her own record label. Long story short she offered me a job and I took it. I was dying to tell ya, but I just needed to make it work first. I didn’t want to give my hopes up. So I moved in with Raven and started working on a new idea she had for the label. At first I was a bit scarred because I didn’t quite know what I was doing, but she wanted to start a new radio show that was sort of like a phone in service. People phone in the songs they want to hear and we play them. It was going okay, but then I thought about how much I missed my mates and my home and then it came to me. "Jack’d Up” a program where people can call in and tell us about their problems and the mad stuff going on in their lives. Then we would find a song to help them get through it. Raven loved the idea and so we started developing it. It was an overnight success which was great, but it was missing something. I wasn’t happy. I loved doing it, but I felt like I was running away from my own problem while trying to help other people with theirs. So I told Raven I needed to come home and she said that Jack’d Up would run from anywhere as long as I was involved. So she is running it while I figure some stuff out.“
Rae took a deep breath and grabbed Chloe’s hand a bit confused when she started to laugh. She suddenly felt so silly. Silly for thinking she had to do this all alone. Silly for not trusting her best mate.
"That is great Rae, I’m really happy for ya. I’m happy that you are doing something that ya love. I’m happy that ya left Bristol if you weren’t happy. I’m happy that you are home. I’m just not happy that you’ve treated your mates so poorly. You really messed up this time Rae. You know I love you and I’ll always be here for ya. I forgive ya, but I don’t know about the rest of the gang. They’re really mad Rae. Especially Finn. He really needed you and you weren’t there. After all he’s been through, I don’t know that he will ever forgive you Rae.”
“What do you mean everything he’s been through? Last we spoke he told me not to call him because I didn’t want him to come and visit me at uni.” she exclaimed. Rae was a bit confused. Yeah he had a little fight with Finn and yeah she ignored his calls for a bit, but she was home now and she could explain it all to him and he would have to understand. He always understood Rae even when other people didn’t.
“You mean you don’t know about his Dad Rae?” Chloe sounded shocked. “Finn told us that he told ya and to not mention it to ya again. He’s gone completely mental. Shagging any girl that throws themselves at him and drinking every night. He hardly even answers the telly anymore. Archie is rightly pissed at him and at you.”
Rae winces thinking about Finn with other girls. Thinking about him shutting out his friends. What had she done?
“I don’t know anythin’ Chloe, I haven’t spoken to Finn since December. What is wrong with Finn’s Dad?” she asks not sure she wants to know the answer.
“Maybe you should talk to Finn, Rae. Call him or go over to his flat and..”
“Tell me Chloe, tell me now. What has happened” Rae almost choked on the last word. She can’t imagine anything bad having happened to Finn’s dad. He was the chillest and nicest parent she knew.
“Alright Rae, but don’t go telling Finn that I told ya. His dads got the cancer. He’s been doing really good though.” she said trying to sound optimistic. “The doctor says that they caught it early and that he’s likely to be okay. But, Finn just isn’t handling it too well. Keep harping on how he’s lost everyone he loves. Never mind that his best mates have been here for him the entire time. I reckon he’s just scarred but is acting like a total knob head.”
Oh no, poor Finn. He’s already lost his mum, his grandma and now his dad is sick. Could this have been what he wanted to talk to her about in December? Could this have been why he needed to see her? Because he thought he was loosing her too?
“When did his dad get sick, Chloe? Like when did Finn find out about it?” Rae asking knowing the answer already.
“Oh, I don’t know Rae, sometime before Christmas I suppose. When he found out you weren’t coming home he said he was going to go see you and talk about it. But then that fell through and he just kind of rent off the rails a bit.”
Great. Now not only was she a shitty friend, but she was a shitty person too. Just because they broke up doesn’t mean that she still wasn’t in love with Finn. She would always be in love with him. Now she just had to hope that it wasn’t to late to make him realize she still cared. She still wanted to try. Still wanted to be there for the only man to ever understand who she was deep down. She needed to fix things.
Her mom would have to wait. Rae needed to find Finn.
Pushing out her chair, Rae stood up and told Chloe that she needed to find Finn.
“But, wait. I still want to know more about your radio show and how you’re here and what’s going on with you. Plus I haven’t even shown you a photo of Eddie yet” Chloe grumbled knowing she had already lost the battle.
“I’m sorry Chloe, I promise we will catch up. I will call you as soon as I find Finn. I just need to see if he is alright. I didn’t mean for him to think I didn’t care.”
Chloe smiled a little bit and stood up. “It’s okay Rae, go. I will call the gang and let them know you are home. Maybe tomorrow we can get together. Chop and Izzy have been wanting to tell us some exciting news, but insisted the whole gang had to be here.”
“I love you Chloe, thank you for understanding and for being you. I’m so sorry I messed things up Babe.”
“Go before you make me cry again. Try the garage before you try his flat. He spends most his time there since his dad has been ill. Phone me later.”
“I will” Rae said over her shoulder as she walked out of the chippy.
What was she going to do? How was she going to explain to Finn that she didn’t mean to ignore him. If he would have just told her, she would have been there. She would have cancelled her trip to Tunisia.
That was the most frightening thing about Finn. She would go to the ends of the earth to make him happy. She just didn’t realize that all he needed to be happy was her to be a good friend.
Pulling up outside the garage, Rae’s palms were sweaty. How was he going to react? Was he even there? All the unanswered questions were enough to drive her mad. She hoped out of the car on a mission. She had to face this head on. The fear was only in her head and she knew Finn. She loved Finn. The last thing on earth she should be scared of was him.
“Hiya, is Finn here? She asked the middle aged man standing at the front desk. He looked a bit familiar, but Rae couldn’t place where she had seen him before. He must be new working at the garage.
"Uh, I think he’s out back working on his car, can I let him know who’s asking.” Rae had a feeling that if Finn knew it was her, he may refuse to see her. Or at least that was the vibe she got from Chloe.
“Can I just go on back? I know where it’s at.” he looked about to shut her down when she said “I’m an old friend back from Uni and I want to surprise him”
That seemed to do the trick because he nodded, lit a cigarette and turned his back to the new customer who had just came in.
Mission one complete. Find Finn. Mission Two, beg for forgiveness starts now.
Rae walked out the back of the garage, feeling emotional being back. It had been so long since she had been here, but it felt like yesterday. She remembered hanging out here yapping her head off about music while Finn worked on cars with his dad. Sometimes when his did left early Finn would try to teach her how the engine worked, but she was never paying much attention. She just liked listening to him speak. He always sounded so confident when he was speaking about cars or music. She missed him so much.
Finn was bent over the hood of a black car with a cigarette in his mouth and a beer in his hand. He look a bit puzzled and lost in thought. He must not have heard her walk in because when she said “Hey Finn” he jumped and hit his head on the hood of the car.
Turning around so quickly she’s surprised he didn’t get whiplash, her eyes met his and it was like someone had punched her in the gut.
He was as beautiful as ever, in a not so beautiful kind of way. His hair was shorter than the last time she saw him, but it was a bit unkempt and swept down into his eyes. His face was a bit dirty, no doubt from wiping the heat of the day off with his oily hands.
A longing grew inside her that she hadn’t felt since before she was accepted into Uni. She wanted to go to him. To tear the nasty cig from his mouth and replace it with her lips.
She wanted to drag him to his flat and have her way with his body until the early hours of the morn. She wanted to hug him and kiss him and tell him that she loved him now and forever. She wanted to tell him that while she could have stayed in London or went anywhere in the world to work, she chose Stamford, because she chose him.
She wanted to say all the things she had been wanting too since they last spoke, but she didn’t. What she said was, “I heard your being a knob head wanker to your mates and we can’t have that now Finn Nelson, can we?”
Really? Everything she wanted to say and that is what came out? She insults him after complete silence for five months. Good Job Rae. If you looked up idiot in the dictionary you could expect to find “Rae Earl” written below.
He looked as if she slapped him, but before she could say anything else he turned back to the car and said “If you were one of my mates I’d see how you’d care, but seeing as your just some girl I used to date, I don’t think its your business anymore now is it.”
Ouch, that hurt. Just some girl he used to date? She knew he was trying to hurt her and deep down she knew he didn’t mean it, but all her insecurities came floating to the surface. The bubbled up threatening to take control and make her run away, which is an emotion she promised herself she would never allow to take control again. She wasn’t a runner any more. She was a fighter and just because she took some space didn’t mean she deserved to be made to feel like she didn’t matter.
“I know your rightly angry with me Finn, and I don’t blame ya. But, I think we should have a proper chat if you could spare a few moments. I think we both owe it to ourselves to fix what’s broken between us, and…”
“Piss off Rae, I don’t have time to listen to what you have to say. The only thing I owe myself is another beer and a hot shower. I’m done cleaning up the things you break” and with that he turned and walked away.
Finn fucking Nelson was out of his bloody mind if he though Rae was giving up that easy. If he thought that throwing low blows at her would cause her to turn away. She had changed. She was better.
She march behind him, picking up the pace as he walked the two blocks to his flat. She caught up right as he walked into the door and followed him as he threw himself up the stairs.
“Finn, please listen to me for a minute. Please, I’m sor…” she reached for him, but he jumped away from her hands and backed farther away from where she stood.
“Don’t you dare say you’re sorry and think that it will fix things. If you were sorry, or if you cared, you would have picked up the phone and called me. You would have answered when I called to apologize for hanging up on you. You would have written me back after all the letters I sent. You wouldn’t have left me feeling like I lost you forever because of a stupid kiss. You told me you forgave me and that you wanted to be friends and then you just… you just….” He turned towards her now and the look in his eyes told her she wouldn’t be winning this battle until he calmed down.
There was no anger in his eyes, no hurt, no pain. They were just blank. Flat. Dead. They were the eyes of the boy she met during her first year at college. They were the eyes of a stranger who wanted nothing to do with the fat girl he saw in front of him.
That is when she broke. When she let the emotions of a sixteen year old frightened girl take over and she began to sob. She covered her eyes and sat down on the futon that she used to love. Sh allowed herself to feel the emotions. To let them pass. He was silent and she’s not sure how long she cried, but she would be damned if she was leaving this place without speaking her mind. She wasn’t running. She was never going to run again.
“I’m taking a shower and then going to the pub. You know where the door is at” Finn said turning around and taking off his shirt right there. Through her tears Rae could see a small tattoo on his back, but couldn’t make out what the words said. It made her feel like she didn’t know this man.
Sure she loved Finn Nelson for as long as she could remember, but this man in front of her. The one with the cold hard eyes and the tattoo on his shoulder, he was not her Finn. He had changed. And whether it was because she left him, because she treated him so poorly or because his losses had hardened him, she was determined to stay. To get to know him. To find off if he was truly gone forever or if he could still love her again.
********************************************************** Finn closed the bathroom door behind him and before she could stop herself Rae stood up, wiped her eyes and followed him in.
“What are you bat shit crazy, girl?” Finn yelled covering himself with a towel.
She ignored his insult and said “You listen here Finn Nelson” averting her eyes from his groin, now matter how much it killed her to do so.
“I made a mistake. I shut myself off from everyone because I thought it would be easier than telling everyone the truth. I’m sorry that it hurt you. Yes I AM SORRY. I am sorry that you felt betrayed, but if you would have just spoken up about your dad. If you would have just told me the truth instead of begging to come see me. If I would have know then I would have…”
“What, Rae? You would have what? Let me come because you felt sorry for me. Came home because you felt obligated to me.” he yelled. “What would you have done? I wasn’t going to force ya to want to be my mate. You made it very clear that you had no time for that and I wasn’t going to make you want me, by telling you my dad was dying. I wanted you to want to see me because you cared.” his words slowly became less angry and more sad. “I don’t blame you for not caring Rae, I just can’t let myself think that you care again, just so you can go off to Uni after summer is over. It isn’t fair to me. I’ve had a tough time letting you go, but now I have and I need you to let me. Let me go Rae” a small tear escaped from his eye and before she knew what she was doing, she wiped it away pulling him to her. It was selfish. She knew it was. Maybe she should let him go.
But she had let him go once before and he had come back. Now it was her turn. Her turn to come back to him.
“Oh Finn, ” she said stroking his cheek and placing her forehead against his. “I’m not ever leaving you again. I promise. I’m here now, and I need you. I need you like you need me.” she slowly moved her face closer to his as she spoke. The words came so naturally.
“What do you mean you are never leaving” he said, sounding angrier than he did when he just yelled at her for leaving him. Can she catch a break. “What are you even doing here?” he said pulling away from her.
“I have a lot to tell ya Finn, but right now I just need you to put some clothes on because I can’t think clearly with you all naked and such” she blushed attempting to turn away when his arm caught her and forced her back. This bathroom was really too small for the both of them.
Finn pulled her into a hug and before she realized what was happening she felt his fingers on her back. I guess he hadn’t changed as much as she thought he had.
Could this means he has forgiven her? It can’t have been that easy. She still had so much to tell him and they had so much to work through.
He was just beginning writing the third word when the front door opened, startling them both.
“Finn, are you ready to go yet, love? I’ve been needing a drink for hours.” said a voice that Rae didn’t recognize. Before she knew what was happening Finn grabbed her shoulders and pushed her into the shower. Thankfully it wasn’t on yet.
“Shh, just stay here for a moment while I sort this out” he said and before she could respond, he walked out of the bathroom, closing the door. To be continued, she thought to herself.
A little bit annoyed, and confused her mind wandered to the words he was writing on her back. “I. W.A.N.T. ….” He wants what? She thought as she listened in on the conversation Finn was having with the mystery women.
“Look, its just not a good time now Darcy.” he said sounding a bit out of breath. Was this one of the many girls Chloe said that he was fucking? A rage of jealously welled up inside of Rae and she had to talk herself out of barging out of the bathroom and telling Finn where to stick his “I wants”.
She came to her senses before she did, thank God, as she was not Finns girlfriend, she had been MIA for a long time and it was really non of her business what was going on.
That didn’t stop her from listening to the reply from the women who sounded like she was royally pissed. “You said last night to come by at four so we could grab a drink. What is with you Finn. One minute you can’t keep your hands off me and the next, I have to beg you for your time. I’m tired of your mood swings.”
“Isn’t everyone” he said with a chuckle and before she could comment he told her “Look, I just don’t think I’m ready to date quite yet. I know I told you we could give it a go, but I’m just not quite sure it’s a great idea. You’re great and everything Darcy, but I just…”
“Fuck you Finn. I spent three weeks wasting my time on someone who is so stuck on on some stupid girl you can’t even get hard.” she spat. Wow she was pissed and Rae was a bit please.
Thinking of Finn with other women was fun, but Rae felt a bit proud that he never seemed to have that problem when he was with her.
“I’m sorry Darcy” Finn said sounded a bit relieved. Rae heard the door close, but stayed in her current hiding spot, lost in thought.
It wasn’t until Finn was standing in front of her, in nothing but a towel that she came back from her head.
“You having performance issues Finn” she laughed not being able to help herself. She took one step out of the shower when he put his hand on her shoulder and a bit forcefully pushed her back into the shower and against the wall.
“What do you want Finn?” She shyly asks her mind focusing on the unwritten letters on her back. “Tell me what you want.”
“I want you…” she gasps at the sound of the words she’s been dying to hear “…wet.” he finishes and before she realizes what is happening Finn turns on the shower.
Freezing cold water covers them both and Rae lets out a scream before trying to shove Finn out of her way to escape the cold.
“And that’s what a girl gets when she questions a mans performance,” he chuckles.
This is what Rae needed. Yeah she is cold as hell and she really wanted to kiss him. She could shag him right now without a second thought. But what she really needed was her friend back. The rest could wait.
“I was only going by what… um darcy was her name right. Yeah what Darcy was saying.” Rae said and once again tried to push Finn out of the way. She was shaking now, but he still wouldn’t budge.
He turned the knob on the shower and before she knew it, the water was warm and the bathroom was starting to fog.
“Come on Finn. I’m fully clothed and not needing a shower, let me out.” Rae pleaded.
“But don’t you want to know what I want, girl?” Finn smoothly said putting both his chiseled arms on the tile at the side of her head. She was trapped and she wasn’t complaining.
“Tell me Finn Nelson,” Rae said, trying her best to sound a bit seductive. She may not have much experience with men, but she knew the look on Finn’s face extremely well.
“How 'bout I show ya,” he said dropping his hand to his towel. With one flick of his fingers, the towel hit the floor and Finn’s performance issues were no longer in question.
Rae swallowed the saliva which had filled her mouth and before she could say a word his mouth was on hers.
Nothing in the entire world had ever felt so right. Sparks flew, birds sang and the world lit up around her, igniting a passion she had long since forgotten.
Before she knew what had happened, her clothes were off and there was nothing between them but the water than was washing them both clean of the past. Wiping away the anger, the hurt and leaving them bare.
This was home Rae thought as Finn reached over and shut the water off. This is where she belonged.
Finn grabbed Rae’s hand and pulled her out of the shower and towards his bed.
“But, we’re all wet” she said as he came back to her mouth.
“That’s the idea he said” Reaching around to run his hands through her short hair. “I like your hair Rae, you’ve never been more beautiful than you do right now.” He said causing her knees to buckle, which was all the incentive he needed to push her onto the bed.
Before she could blink he was on top of her wrapped them both under the covers as he kissed down her neck and to her breasts.
Rae was lost in a heavenly bliss when all the unanswered questions came to her mind. She tried ignoring them and pushing them away, but she couldn’t focus on anything else.
Were they okay? Did he forgive her? Were they together now? Did she even want to be together? Who were these other women? How many of them were there? How was his dad doing? How was he doing?
She was about to grab him and tell him that they needed to stop. They needed to talk before they did something that couldn’t be taken back. Before they had sex and blurred the line of their already confusing relationship. Everything was happening so fast that her head was spinning.
But, before she got a chance to say anything the front door burst open. Chop, Izzy and Archie all came in and stopped dead in their tracks.
“Bloody hell, Rae, what are you doing in Finn’s bed? And why are you…”
“Chop, get the hell out of here” Finn said, coming out of the covers, causing Izzy to jump up in down in excitement.
“Oh Chop, look they are together again” she said clapping her hands and pulling on Chop’s jacket. She looked so excited that Rae couldn’t help but grin a little bit. Izzy was so adorable.
Thankfully Rae was covered by the blanket and when her eyes met Archies, all thoughts of modesty or embarrassment fled. He looked so hurt. So sad. He turned around and walked out without a backward glance.
“Shit” Rae said and reality came crashing down on her.
She still had a lot of fixing to do. She still needed to talk to Finn about her future, their future and she still needed to fix things with Archie.
“Hiya Chop, hiya Izzy.” Rae said pulling the blanket a bit tighter against her chest as Finn repeated his earlier sentiments to Chop.
“Can you both get out of here so I can at least put some bloody clothes on.” he spat annoyed that our moment had been interrupted.
Izzy gave Rae one more giant smile before grabbing Chops hand and pulling him into the living room.
“You really need to lock your door” Rae said playfully as Finn stood up and pulled on a pair of shorts.
“Yeah no kidding” he said not meeting her eye. “I’ll grab you some clothes seeing as yours are all wet”
He began searching through his drawers and pulled out a pair of her old bottoms and the Blur shirt she left behind when she left Stamford. He tossed them on the bed and headed into the living room.
What crawled up his ass, she thought. A bit annoyed at how cold he was being. Moments ago they were about to reintroduce themselves to each others bits and now he wouldn’t even look at her.
Rae was mentally and physically exhausted. Her mom was probably wondering where she was, Archie was pissed and Finn was acting border line bipolar.
This day needed to end, and soon. Rae wasn’t sure how much more she could take. In the span of a few hours she felt every emotion under the sun and all she wanted was to close her eyes and take a rest.
