So I run the customization machine at our phone case company and I sometimes print cases for myself when I have an open spot on the template and like, of course I’m going to put my current obsessions on my phone.
Anyways, we also started a buddy system at work so they picked a couple of veteran employees to pair up with new hires to help get them acclimated to the office since it can be pretty intimidating and they may have questions that they might not feel comfortable going to their superiors with.
And like, my buddy asked me “so what do you do at the company?”
and I told her “oh I do some product development and custom case creation.”
and she’s like, “what do you have on your phone now?”
Me: *sweats nervously*
*SLOWLY FLIPS OVER PHONE*
We both just kinda poker faced at each other for a couple seconds before I yelled “IT’S BECKY G FROM POWER RANGERS”
and now she’s probably like wtf what did I get myself into.
As for what it’s like being the sister of the mayor, it’s nothing special, people seem to look up to her, but I can’t see why. She’s also far to young to be running a town, she’s not even eighteen yet.
Note: Most of my stories up until
now stood on their own, but a lot of the dynamic between Ladybug and Cat Noir
in this story probably won’t make sense if you haven’t read the previous days,
especially Days 2, 4, 5, 6, and 8. Also, wow did this turn out longer than I
meant it to.
A heads up for new readers. All of my Ladynoir July stories are one story, so I suggest reading them in order for everything to make sense. Here’s a link to day one.
The conversation with Cat Noir
last night played over and over in Marinette’s head, almost drowning out the
lingering guilt over flirting with Adrien as Ladybug. How in the world had she
managed to make everything so complicated? Why in the world was she making it so complicated? She could
still have close friends while maintaining her secret identity. For goodness’
sake, her best friend was determined to uncover Ladybug’s identity and their
friendship hadn’t suffered. Why couldn’t she have a boyfriend, too?
Cat Noir had encouraged her to
talk to Adrien, and he even promised to give her the necessary space to pursue
her crush. She should be thrilled. That should have made everything easier. So,
why did she feel so guilty as she entered the classroom and sent Adrien a small
wave? Why did it feel like she was betraying her partner when she asked the boy
in front of her about his plans for the weekend?
Why did it feel like her heart was
splitting in two when Adrien sent her a smile and told her about the busy
weekend his father had planned for him? Marinette couldn’t even take a moment
to celebrate that she was talking to Adrien without blushing or stammering.
Every time she blinked, Cat Noir’s eyes appeared in her mind, a flash of sadness
and maybe even a hint of jealousy in that brilliant green stare.
