someone else’s shoes. chapter one.
pairing: ladynoir / adri(e)nette
summary: hawkmoth, as per usual, creates a new villain – one that may cost ladybug and chat noir their biggest secrets.
notes: i got this idea kind of from the trend going around where ladybug and chat swap kwamis – although i toyed with it a bit and this is the result. i hope you enjoy reading this as much as i did writing it! :)
also this is dedikated to katie my love @chatnoirrs
Through the halls of Collège Françoise Dupont walked a lanky boy, books held tightly to his chest as he tried to make himself as small as possible. It was not difficult, no, since he – his name was Lyle – was already short for his age, but somehow through the crowd he was still spotted by his least amicable peer.
“Hey, shorty!” Eugene grinned, striding over to Lyle and looming over him with his impressive height. Two of his friends flanked him, following him like betas to an alpha. “Did you do my physics homework like I told you to?”
Lyle stood up straight, evenly meeting Eugene’s stare. “No, I told you I wasn’t doing it.” His words broke off when a bout of anxiety ached within his chest and he cursed himself; had his voice not shaken, Eugene might have been more inclined to leave him alone for the time.
