prompt (now this is a challenge): the other four are kids and kevin is the adult in charge of taking them trick-or-treating. chaos and hilarity ensues.
sijshjsi his is lowkey my favorite au tbh its so so cute and kevin is such a Dad i hope i did ur prompt justice!!!
“but i don’t wanna go!” mitch wails, clinging to kevin’s leg. he cries - well, actually, screams - whining, “i don’t wanna go!”
“mitchy, i told you, it’s not going to be scary,” kevin says gently. “scott was just teasing you.”
“scott’s a meanie!” kirstin adds, helpfully.
“am not!” scott sounds genuinely offended and he reaches for her rapunzel wig, tugging on it. “’pologize!”
“scott, stop it, or you won’t be going trick or treating with us tonight,” kevin says firmly. “now you apologize to kirstin and go finish getting dressed.” huffing, scott apologizes and does as kevin says, while kirstin fixes her wig and smooths out her dress.
mitch, meanwhile, is still sobbing, insistent that their plans to go trick or treating will not include him in the slightest. “don’t like monster!” he weeps. “monsters are scary!”
“but they aren’t real monsters,” kevin explains. he gently pries mitch off of his leg and kneels down to his level. “is avi a real dragon?” he asks, pointing to avi, who is proudly running around in his costume, despite the fact that he keeps tripping over his tail.
mitch sniffles. “n - no.”
“and kirstin isn’t really rapunzel,” kevin continues. “and scott isn’t really a cowboy.”
mitch sniffles again. “i guess,” he murmurs.
“i think you’ll have so much fun trick or treating,” kevin tells him. “you look so cute in your kitty cat costume, i bet you’ll get loads of candy!”
mitch’s face brightens immediately. “candy?” he asks, all of his previous fears about trick or treating gone so fast that kevin can’t help but to laugh.
