i repeat first time

So I stood up on the car seat, and not just stuck out my head but squeezed half my body through the sunroof, then shouted, “Hey, I’m in that! I’m the princess!”

This certainly caused some interest, ranging from the scornful “What an asshole” variety to the “Do you think it’s really her?”

“I’m in that!” I repeated for those who hadn’t heard me the first time. Then, suddenly realizing what I had done and quickly fearing that some of these moviegoers might identify me, I slid back down into my seat and said to my friend, “Quick! Drive!” So she stepped on the gas and sped away.

And sometimes hope is a thing with a snow covered snoot

Anatole! since the tony’s on sunday the great comet’s performance had been in my head all day it was so good - the music - lighting - costumes - energy!! aaaahh //continues to listen to The abduction on repeat

(plus I also think this is the first time ive made actual fanart for a musical??? ) EVERYTHING ABOUT IT LOOKED GOOD OKAY


I legitimately had to cover my face while I was drawing some of these because tHEY’RE SUCH A CUTE COUPLE OH MY GOD

It’s ‘n’ times, but I have to repeat...

This is not the first time I mention this problem. I did many times before on tumblr - about repost my artwork/comic.
I love One Piece, Zoro, Sanji, I draw artwork for them, even comic, casually share it free. What I hope in return is that people got the very simple but basic attitude - REPOST/DO TRANSLATION WITH CREDIT.

Aside tumblr, I accept people to repost my artworks, in fact I’m too tired and overwhelm by many times I was report back, heard from my friends that my works being repost here and there. So AT LEAST!! AT LEAST WHEN YOU DO REPOST, CREDIT them to me with LINK!!
It’s not 1 or 2 artworks, it’s a whole 10 or even 20 pages comic, or many artworks. If you can do the translation from English to some other language, which mean your English ability is enough to access to me. I can’t understand any reason that people not even send me a message, just a simple message to ask for repost or translation. 

Do you know how hurt it is when you see a comment under your artwork being repost at nowhere “I love this art, I saw it somewhere before but don’t know where or whose…!”

It’s re-posted to the edge that people do not know who draw it, who make it, right in front of your eyes, the one who draw the art.

I did make a post at my facebook page too, so if you guys can help me share this, please do! I want to draw more and more comic for share but everytime this problem happen to me, I nearly run out of power to draw and share it.

Maybe a Mckirk friends with benefits au?

  • This wasn’t supposed to happen. This is the opposite of what friends should be doing. Leonard worries about it for minutes, thinking about quitting this - whatever it is - it has to stop before it really begins. But then Jim turn around, facing him, and he throws him a sleepy smile. “Hey,” he says softly, fingers running gently over Bones’ chest, “stop worrying.” “I’m not worrying,” Leonard replies, but Jim shakes his head. “I know you, I can tell apart those ‘grumpy, Jim’s pestering me’ shoulders, and ‘grumpy, Jim’s pestering me’ shoulders.” Bones huffs, though Jim grins. “See? I knew it,” he says, “what’s bothering you?” “We just had sex.” “Yes.” “Jim. We just… had sex.” “Yes,” Jim repeats. "Jim…“ “I heard you the first two times,” Jim says, “why does that make you worry?” “Because, relationships are messy, and we’re friends and-” “Wow, dude,” Jim says, sitting up straight, “who said anything about relationships? Can we just be friends who have great sex when either of us is dtf?” “Dtf?” Bones repeats, and Jim huffs. “Down to f-” “Got it,” Bones interrupts him, “I don’t think that’s a good idea. Feelings get involved, and shit.” “C'mon, both of us don’t do relationships. We’re just two guys who enjoy a drink together every now and then, and then some great sex. That can’t be bad. What’s the worst that could happen?”
  • Jim is right, Leonard realizes a couple days later, just after he lets himself fall down on the mattress next to Jim. Jim turns around with a grunt, lying down on his back instead. “You have some pent up frustrations,” he laughs, breathlessly so, and he turns to look at Bones instead. “Listen, when you continuously avoid medbay when your checkups are due, I’m going to be a little frustrated.” “I’m not complaining,” Jim says, “Hell, if I knew I’d get this out of this, I would’ve skipped out of medical checkups a long time ago.” Leonard huffs, too, running his hand over Jim’s chest. “You always skip your medical sessions.”
  • York Town leaves little time for them to spend together, but it’s fine. Bones works in the medical department during the day, and Jim spends hours in meetings. They agree to meet up in their favorite bar, but instead, they end up just drinking in Bones’ quarters. Bones has a small balcony, and so they sit outside, drinking beers and watching people go about their own lives. “I have a lot of internal struggles,” Jim says, out of the blue after a few seconds of peaceful silence. The artificial sun is setting, coloring the sky all kinds of pastel colors that remind both of them of Earth. “How are you struggling internally?” Bones asks, “are you okay?” “I mean,” Jim starts thoughtfully, his hand reaching out to rest on Bones’ thigh, “you know that feeling when you’re conflicted, because on one hand they opened a great new burger bar and I really want a cheeseburger. On the other hand, though, I also want sex. So it’s like; do I want to do you, or do I want cheeseburgers?” “That’s your struggle?” Bones asks, frowning lightly. “You had me worried for a second!” “Take my struggles seriously!” Jim counters, and Bones grins. “Well,” he says, “the burger bar delivers. Think we can have a quickie before they get here?” At that suggestion, Jim gets up instantly. “Oh, I bet we can do more than one.”
  • For a long time, this actually works out quite well. They’re just them, the same Jim and Bones who enjoy watching sports games, drink in the bar while the Enterprise warps through deep space. They’re still the same Jim and Bones who bicker about pretty much everything. It’s just that this time, there’s also sex involved, and it’s pretty great. Jim sometimes texts Bones positions they can try out, along with his usual message spamming. Bones often tells him off, but occasionally comes with suggestions himself - all of which Jim is happy to try.
  • But then Bones finds himself a little too comfortable in Jim’s company. Jim starts sleeping over a lot more, and Bones does, too, when he’s over at Jim’s quarters. They move from casual sex and parting ways in the morning, to sex that’s more intense than casual fun and stress relief. Sometimes, it’s initial heavy make-out sessions and would-be sex, if they didn’t get too distracted talking deep into the night, about everything and nothing. And instead of splitting ways in the morning, they get dressed together in the bathroom. Or rather, Jim showers while Bones shaves, and the other way around. Bones has a couple uniforms in Jim’s wardrobe, an unspoken agreement that just kind of happened. They share breakfast together and only part ways when Jim heads to the bridge, and Bones heads to medbay.
  • “You’re worrying again,” Jim points out, late at night. “You should be asleep,” Bones says, and Jim huffs, moving an arm around Bones’ waist and he presses himself against Bones’ back. “So should you,” he says, “but you’re worrying.” Bones is quiet for a few seconds, thinking about just how much he enjoys being so close in Jim’s presence. “Look at us,” Bones says, gesturing at the two of them. “I much rather look at you,” Jim replies. Bones takes a deep breath, then turns to his back so he can look at Jim properly. “Listen to yourself,” he says, “this isn’t casual, Jim. We’re not casual.” Jim listens quietly, frowning lightly. “Hey,” he says, “you’re making a big deal out of nothing. Are you not having fun?” “Of course I’m having fun,” Bones says, “but I’d have more fun knowing my feelings are reciprocated.” "Reciprocated,” Jim repeats slowly, before cracking a smile, “Mr. Sensitive.” “Mr Sensitive?” Bones repeats, and he opens he mouth to protest that, but Jim leans in to kiss him instead. “I promise you,” Jim says quietly, his fingers brushing just over Bones’ cheek, “those feelings are reciprocated.”

Warnings: well it’s smut lmao so idk ??? 

Summary: Lately, your best friend Jimmy seems sad all the time, and when you find out the reason why, you try to cheer him up and you accidentally let him know how you really feel about him, and prove it to him when he doesn’t believe you.


p.s. i got a little carried away with this one


You and Jimmy had been best friends for as long as you could remember. His mother and your mother had been friends since before you were born, and when your parents got divorced and you and your mother fell on hard times, Ethel was there to help. “I knew that good for nothin’ fool wasn’t worth it,” Ethel had told your mom. She practically begged the two of you to come live at the Freakshow with them, and insisted that Elsa wouldn’t mind. So, you and your mother ended up getting your own caravan right next to Ethel and Jimmy’s, and since neither of you really qualified as “freaks,” you spent your time helping with things like the cooking, and setting up the show every night. So, over the past 10 or so years, you and Jimmy had beome very close, and you couldn’t imagine it any other way.

Lately, you had been so worried about him. He’d seemed really down in the dumps, and you couldn’t figure out why. After a few days of noticing that he wasn’t eating much and barely talking to you, you decided to try and cheer him up, and maybe find out what was bothering him. So you pulled out your mother’s favorite cookbook and began making some of his favorite foods: spaghetti and chocolate cake. You figured you’d invite him and his mother over for dinner like old times, and then when you got some time alone with him, maybe try and ask him what was wrong lately.

Before beginning to cook, you told your mother what you were planning, and asked her if she would ask the Darlings to come over around 6. So you pulled down a large pot and began cooking, seeing as it was already 5.

At 6:04, there was a hard knock at the door, and then Jimmy peeked his head around the corner. “Hey darlin’,” he grinned, before shutting the door behind him. He had a habit of calling you pet names like darlin’ or sweetheart, and you couldn’t say you minded. Far from it actually– you couldn’t remember a time when your stomch didn’t instantly turn into a swarm of butterflies when he called you something like that.

“Our mommas might be a while, they got caught up with Eve on the walk over.” he giggled a little, his dimples popping out.

“That’s alright, we can just hang out till they get here,” you smiled back, walking over to him. “I’ve missed you, Jimmy. We don’t spend as much time togther as we used to.”

He looked down at the floor, and although you could see a blush creeping onto his cheeks, you heard him mumble something along the lines of “Yeah, sure you have.”

You looked up at him, frowning, “What’s that supposed to mean? Of course I missed you, you’re my best friend.”

“Look, I’m sorry Y/N. It’s just that…I find it hard to believe that someone like you would actually care that much about a freak like me. You’re beautiful, and normal, and I’m not. I just can’t help feeling like you’ve only stuck around because my Ma’s friends with yours.”

Suddenly it hit you. “Oh, Jimmy,” you cooed, sitting down on the couch in front of him and holding his hands in your smaller ones, “That’s why you’ve been so distant lately? You think I don’t really care about you?”

He avoided your gaze and kept quiet. “Jimmy, I… I love you.”

“What?” He asked, his eyes suddenly flicking up from the ground and meeting yours. “What’d you say?”

You could feel your cheeks heating up rapidly, but now that it was out, you figured you had nothing else to lose, so you kept going. “I said I love you.” you repeated. “I’ve loved you since the first time I laid eyes on you, when we were 8 years old and I saw you eat a worm on a dare,” you smiled, and Jimmy let out a chuckle, remembering the first time you met. “I love you more than anything else Jimmy Darling, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. And I’m sorry if I mess up our entire friendship by saying all this, but it’s too late to stop now. I don’t just care about you, I love you. And I never want to hear you say otherwise ever again, aright?”

Jimmy stood frozen in front of you, his eyes wide and his mouth sightly agape. He wasn’t speaking but he hadn’t removed his hands from their spot between your palms, so you supposed that was a good sign. “Please say something before I throw up from embaressment.”

“I love you, God I love you Y/N.” He gushed, kneeling down in front of you, “I just never said anything beause I thought you wouldn’t feel the same.”

“That’s why I didn’t tell you sooner.” You admitted.

“W-would it be okay if I kissed you?” He asked, glancing own at your still interlocked hands. You nodded vigorously, before leaning into him and pressing your lips to his, and you swear you saw fireworks. And even though it was the first kiss you’d ever had with him, he kissed you like it would be the last.

“I love you so much,” you mumbled into his neck, “so God damn much, don’t ever forget that.” You rested your hand on his thigh, not even meant to be in a sexual way, but you head Jimmy’s breath catch in his throat, and he swallowed roughly. “Oh, you like that?” you teased, smiling as you rubbed your hand up his thigh a bit higher, until your fingers were only inches away from his crotch.

“Mhm… you can keep going, i-if you want,” he mumbled, biting his lip, before leaning down to kiss you again. 

“Wait,” you pulled away slowly, panting, “if we’re gonna do this, we should probably go to your caravan, we don’t need our mothers walking in on me blowing you, now do we?”

Jimmy laughed, his dimples showing off again, “Oh, so you’ll be blowing me?”

You rolled your eyes, but could feel a flush creeping over your cheeks as the realization of what you had said hit you. “Shut up, just hand me that notepad and a pen so they don’t worry about where we went whenever they actually get here.”

He smirked, but did as you requested, so you scribbled out a note.

You then stuck it on the cabinet above the pot of spaghetti, and quickly followed Jimmy outside and next door to his caravan, which was next to his mother’s. Once he shut and locked the door behind you, you immediately pressed his back against the wall, threw your arms around his neck and crashed your mouth to his. Your fronts were pressed together tightly, and you could feel Jimmy getting hard as you continued kissing him. You reached down and popped the button of his pants open. “Is it okay if I…?” you trailed off, knowing that he’d know what you meant. 

“Please,” Jimmy practically whimpered, and you pressed your lips to his again. Without breaking the kiss, you pushed his pants and boxers down, and began pumping him with your hand. Jimmy let out a groan into your mouth, and you pulled away from him, to kneel down and take his dick in you mouth. You placed your left hand on his hip, and your right hand on the base of his cock. “Ohhh, fuck Y/N, don’t stop.”

But soon after, you did stop, just before Jimmy came. You stood up and started unbuttoning his shirt. Jimmy then kicked off his pants, as you leaned in, and whispered, “Go wait on the bed, baby.” 

Jimmy smirked and planted a few kisses on your neck, and then did as you told him and laid back on the bed. You undressed yourself in front of him, and looked directly at him as you unclipped your bra and pulled down your panties. It was taking everything in Jimmy to not reach down and jerk himself off to the sight of you, but he knew that what was to come would be even better.

As soon as you were completely naked, you climbed onto the bed and sat straddled Jimmy’s lap. You grabbed his dick and rubbed the tip over your soaking wet slit, recieving a low, gutteral groan from the back of his throat. “Baby stop teasing.”

You slowly slid onto Jimmy’s length, and he threw his head back and sighed with relief. His hands gripped your thighs and you began building up a rhythm, as you leaned forward an gripped Jimmy’s shoulder’s. He sat up and took one of your nipples in his mouth, while he raked his hands down your back.

You let out a loud moan, and reached down to rub your clit. “You gonna cum soon baby?” you asked breathlessly. But before Jimmy could answer, you leaned down and started leaving hickeys and wet kisses all over his neck and collarbones.

A couple seconds later, Jimmy’s panting got louder, and a few quiet moanes escaped his lips, and you felt him cum inside of you. You continued moving on him until you felt your own orgasm taking over, and you practically screamed with pleasure. Once you had caught your breath, you pulled yourself off of Jimmy’s dick, and stood up.

“How are you up this fast? I’m exhausted and I didn’t even do any of the work,” Jimmy laughed, as he watched you get dressed with his hands behind his head.

You chuckled. “I am too, but we gotta go. Dinner, remember?”

Jimmy groaned, but stood up and began getting dressed as well. You stood in front of the small mirror by his bed as you ran your fingers through your hair, trying to smooth it out. Once Jimmy was fully dressed again, he hugged you from behind and rested his head on your shouler, peppering kisses on your cheek. “You ready, doll? You look gorgeous.”

You smiled and turned your head to peck his lips. “Mhm.”

The two of you walked towards you & your mother’s caravan, with Jimmy’s arm draped around your shoulders. When you pulled the door open, you saw your mom and Ethel seated at the small table, talking and laughing,

“Hey ma,” Jimmy grinned.

“Hey you two,” Ethel replied, returning Jimmy’s smile.

“Did you have fun on your walk?” your mom asked, taking a sip from the mug she was holding.

“Oh yeah,” Jimmy answered, “And lots of it.”

52 with Daryl 💓

The question echoes in the air, leaving harsh afterthoughts as it’s met with nothing but silence. 

He stares at you, the blush on his cheeks rising until his entire face is red. You could’ve sworn the colour mixed with his bright blue eyes, leaving a lilac shade in it’s place.

You didn’t know what to do. The two of you were so close, bodies pressing together firmly. The walls around you both were unforgiving and provided little space. Daryl felt uncomfortable, just as he would with anyone else. 

But with you, it was moe than the sensation of pressure on his chest, it was the tingles where his stomach was. The flips it was making. Then the fall as those four words slipped your lips. 

He’s quiet when he asks, “Wha’?” – thinking he misheard you. 

“Can I kiss you?” You repeat, lacking the confidence you held the first time. 

The torture repeats itself. But this time, instead of complete silence, you hear the shuffling of walkers moving past your hiding spot. You glance to the side, but Daryl only stares at you. 

More time passes, and as you’re about to move, you whisper, “I think the coast is clear.” You don’t mention the question, hoping he could just forget your spur of the moment action. 

“Ya.” He mumbles. His voice is the softest you’ve ever heard it be. 

You look to him, slightly confused, “Yeah?” 

At first, he doesn’t respond. You both hold eye-contact, but slowly he begins closing the few inches of space between your faces.

“Ya.” He whispers, “You can kiss me.” 

anonymous asked:

"I'm sorry, I cannot break a $100, do you have another form of payment?" "Nah it's fine" -continues to try and hand me the 100. I assume he didn't hear/understand the question so I repeat. He gets annoyed and says "I HEARD YOU THE FIRST TIME. JUST TAKE IT." We went around and around for a couple of minutes before my manager came over and said "Sir, we do not have the money to break that for a ten dollar order. There is a bank across the street, and we will hold your food for you"

Jooheon - would be all cute and stare back until their s/o finally snaps back into reality. “Oh i’m sorry did you say something?” “No, I was just thinking how pretty you look today…” 

I.M. - would be mumbling to himself, wondering if you heard him the first time or not. “Shall I repeat myself? maybe she’s gone deaf… y/n?” 

Minhyuk - would start making silly faces in front of you to test how deep you were in daydreaming. “Hello earth to y/n? It’s me Minhyuk. I asked if you wanted to eat with me but you’re ignoring me. Helloooo?” 

Kihyun - would wave his hand in front of your face until he gets your attention back. “What did you say?” Then he would pout and say, “you said you missed me and yet you’re taking no notice of me..”

Toukomaru: date | unexpected fantasies | talk less | friendship underwear | ultra despair girlfriends | eyeglasses

Meet the Future Sister-In-Law - Toukomaru version

“I thought I’d never see you again.” Komaru practically wheezed as she broke her run by hugging her brother as tightly as she could.

Makoto returned the embrace with just as much affection if not more, his hands patted her gently as he chuckled freely. “Well I can’t say the same.”

Komaru pulled back, shocked at his choice of words. “How cruel! You mean to say that you didn’t miss me at all?”

“No, that’s not it, Komaru. I never said that.” He shook his head and smiled reassuringly. “I just meant that I was sure that we’d meet again.”

“Geez, always the optimistic one.” She found herself returning the smile just as easily. “It’s good to know that part of you hasn’t changed one bit.”

“Well it’s my only redeeming point you know.” He joked with tears in his eyes as he looked at her with sibling pride.

“Yeah, I know.” She sniffled as she wiped a few tears that had already flown.

It was a long road just to get to this moment. This moment where these siblings were finally reunited. It was a painful journey for each of them and it was riddled with despair all throughout but they never gave up. They didn’t lose sight of hope and so they persevered. Until finally, they were reunited at last. Not everyone had survived but they were grateful that at least both of them were safe. Here, holding each other, this much they were more than grateful for.

“Ugh! Okay, we get it. You two missed each other!” Touko unceremoniously interrupted their moment with an annoyed groan. “You already hugged on it, isn’t that enough drama? Don’t you think that this is dragging for too long? We have a schedule to run by you know.”

“Touko!” Komaru jumped back from the hug just so she could properly glare at Touko who seemed unaffected by it. “Give us a break, will ya?”

“It’s good to see you again too, Touko.” Makoto chuckled and greeted his friend goodnaturedly. He would have hugged her too but she declined so he just offered his smile instead. “Thanks for taking care of Komaru.”

Touko appreciated the gesture although she hardly showed it. Her words lacked their usual bite though so maybe that was as good as it’ll get. “Yeah you should be. She didn’t exactly make it easy for me.” She scoffed.

“Hey! That was uncalled for!” Komaru objected.

“I call it as I see it.” Touko stated as a matter-of-fact.

“Meanie!” Komaru stuck out her tongue at her to which Touko merely frowned at her childish antics.

Makoto on the other hand, watched fondly if not slightly amused by their display. “Well aren’t you two cute together.”

And just like that, the banter was broken.

“C-Cute?!” Touko stammered right before her whole body became stiff and unresponsive.

“Aaand she’s frozen…” Komaru sighed. They still needed to work on Touko’s tolerance for compliments.

“Ahaha, my bad. I forgot that she does that.” Makoto sheepishly apologized. “So I’m guessing that Touko will be joining us?”

And all of a sudden, the lighthearted atmosphere was replaced with a growing tension as it was Komaru’s turn to freeze, her nerves shot.

“Actually, there’s a reason why Touko’s dropping in on our reunion…” She started hesitantly and then backed out at the last second. “You tell him, Touko.”

That was apparently enough to bring her back to her senses.

“M-Me?” Touko looked back at her indignantly. “Oh, h-hold it right there. No way! We already talked about this and you agreed that you’d tell him.”

“Only because I lost a bet!” Komaru pointed out in the hopes that she could get away with it.

“That you still agreed upon!” Touko hustled. She crossed her arms and tilted her chin upwards as she urged her on. “Come on, Komaru. Grow a pair already and fess up.”

“Not really my kind of idiom considering I’m a girl.” Komaru grumbled in defeat. She knew that it was useless to start this fight anyways. “Maybe we should have stuck with the whole secrecy plan.”

“You’re the one who was all "if we’re going to do this then we’re going to do this properly, starting with a no secrets policy” so take responsibility!“ Touko ordered her.

"And you should know by now that I hardly put any thought into my words. It was a spur of the moment thing!” Komaru argued, her cheeks were dusted pink. “Also, now? Really? Can’t I have a few minutes to prepare myself? I don’t think I have the guts to tell him right now.”

“Hm? Tell me what, Komaru?” Makoto innocently asked.

“Hey! Big bro!” Komaru all but jumped when he joined in the conversation. As soothing as his smile was, it wasn’t enough to calm her nerves. Oh, god so was she doing this? Apparently so. “Well! You see…” She fumbled as she tried to put together the words. “Uh…” She already knew what to say but had trouble actually getting them out of her mouth. “Touko and I…” The words seemed to be stuck in her throat as she coughed in an attempt to get rid of the itch there.

“Oh, for crying out loud! Just spit it out already.” Touko raised her hand in exasperation and gave Komaru one last literal push.

“Arekindasortadating.” Komaru spewed hastily and all at once. She had to pry her eyes open since she winced right after. But she knew that now that it was out, all that was left was the verdict and so she anxiously stared at her brother for any reaction.

“Oh…” He merely said and fell quiet for a while. Until he smiled again. “And?”

“And… that’s it.” She replied, not quite sure what else he wanted her to say. That reaction kind of fell flat compared to her expectations. “Wait, did you hear what I just said or do you need me to do a repeat or?”

“I heard you the first time.” He laughed for a bit and then settled for a lopsided smile as he confessed, “I know.”

“You…” She stared at him incredulously. “You already know?”

“Well you two weren’t exactly subtle about it.” He explained with a cheeky grin.

Komaru could practically feel her blush of embarrassment. “What gave us away?” She squeaked.

“The flirting and that one phone call.” He easily explained.

“See! I told you to check if you actually ended the call!” Touko chided her.

“Hey! It was just one time!” Komaru pointed out.

“Clearly one time too many.” Touko retorted.

“I said I was sorry!” Komaru deflated.

Before the two could continue their argument, Makoto thought it was best for him to intervene with a round of applause. “Congrats on your relationship.” He then placed his hand over his sister’s shoulder and said, “Don’t cause too much trouble for Touko, okay Komaru?”

“Isn’t this supposed to be the part where you’re the overprotective brother and you threaten my girlfriend instead?” She raised an eyebrow, confused.

“Normally but it just so happens that your girlfriend is much more reliable than you.” He playfully ruffled her hair.

“Ack! Betrayed by my own blood!” She dramatically fell on her knees as if struck by a blow.

“Hmph, you must be so heartbroken over the fact that as strong as your brocon game is, his siscon isn’t so much.” Touko slyly teased her.

“Not again with the brocon. Touko, we’ve been over this. You’re never letting this go, are you?” Komaru sighed in defeat.

“It’s alright, Komaru. I’m sure Touko would be more than willing to comfort you.” Makoto smirked at both of them.

“S-Shut up!” They both shot back at him accompanied with blushes and deathglares to which he merely laughed them off.

Teasing aside, it looks like the introduction as girlfriends was well received. They were only visiting though so maybe next time, they’d be introducing themselves differently then.
