mayor's phone

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*


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.

Ladynoir Day 9: Masquerade

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.
