right after she got the hat

We Are Young: Chapter 12

Throne of Glass High School AU

Summary: Senior Rowan Whitethorn is new to town. It doesn’t take him long to get use to a new school, make new friends, even join the local hockey team. But it also doesn’t take him long to meet sophomore and figure skater Aelin Galathynius. And it doesn’t take him long to realize one thing; he can’t stand her.

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

——————–

Aelin didn’t really think twice when Rowan messaged her a few weeks later, one Sunday morning, telling her to dress comfortably for their date. She also didn’t put much thought into it when she asked him what, exactly, his definition of “comfortably” was, and he responded with leggings and a sweater. But she was slightly disappointed she didn’t have to dress up for the evening.

She did, however, raise an eyebrow later that day when Rowan messaged her again, just moments after she’d gotten dressed.

Be there in 5. And make sure you have your skates.

At first, she thought it was a joke. He couldn’t seriously be taking her skating on her day off. The only day off she’d have for a long time.

Practice had been … rough lately. With Nationals coming up in just over a month, and with Aelin still yet to land her triple-triple, she normally left practice in a sour mood. Uncle Weylan said she needed all the practice she could get. So over Christmas break, they were having practice for hours on end every day. If she didn’t land her triple-triple by New Years, they were taking it out of her program.

But sure enough, when Aelin messaged Rowan “seriously buzzard?” he came back with “seriously fireheart.

So despite the fact that Aelin really wasn’t in the mood for skating at the moment, she made sure to have her skates with her.

“The rink?” She questioned as she climbed out of Rowan’s car. “I figured you’d be taking me to the pond when you told me to bring my skates.”

PAPER AND COFFEE - PT. 6

Ben laughed as he went to leave. “Shawn, you don’t need to worry about that because if I catch her looking at you one more time when you’re not looking I swear I might call her out.”

“Ben?” I finally called and he turned to look at me while at the door. “Don’t call her out on it, okay?”


A/N: I’m on a roll with this shit. I’ve decided to break these down into smaller sections.

Playlist: Left Eye

Left Eye died 15 years ago and I wanted to collect all of my favorite verses from her in one playlist.

I might be in the minority, but I’m a much bigger fan of Left Eye earlier in her career.  The longer she was in the game, the lower her voice got and the more philosophical her rhymes became to the point where, honestly, some of her most classic rhymes I still be like “…what?”  I don’t she was getting the respect she deserved as a lyricist because she was cute, in a group, and sounded like a little girl.  The other women in rap were a lot harder than she was and instead of staying true to what I thought made her unique, she changed her style to meet theirs and it wasn’t quite as successful, to me anyway.

I put these songs in chronological order, but I wanted to put this video for “Freedom” (1995) at the top because you can really see how unique she was alongside other Queens of Rap at the time.  "Freedom" was the theme from Panther and the original R&B version featured artists like Monica, Vanessa Williams, TLC, En Vogue, SWV, etc.  An alternative Rap Version was produced and shot as well featuring Queen Latifah, Yo-Yo, Patra, MC Lyte, Me'Shell Ndegeocello, Salt N Pepa and another artist I don’t recognize.  Unfortunately it’s not on Spotify so I can’t add it to my playlist, but you should find it and download it.  It’s one of my favorite moments in Left Eye’s discography.

anonymous asked:

What would the villains do if it was the reader's birthday?

Black hat: He would pretend he didn’t know, but he does know. He ignores the fact that its your birthday the entire day, forcing you instead to do EVEN MORE WORK. However, at the end of the day, you find a nice fancy outfit laid out on your bed. He denies he got it for you, but you know he did.

Dr Flug: Flug would work for WEEKS to make you the PERFECT gift! Right as he’s ready to present it to you it explodes. You do your best to comfort him, saying that his company is enough of a birthday gift. Later you find some flowers and a card from him in your room.

Demencia: She’s been preparing your birthday for MONTHS. She planned a whole damn party and invited everybody. She even bought you a huge ass cake (which her buff black hat pops out of). After the party she takes you out for a night on the town. Which mainly included robbing stores and committing small felonies.

505: He stays by you the entire day, helping you in ANY way he can! He gives you a knit sweater that shows you and him hugging. He even tried to bake you cupcakes, which ended up on the walls after Black hat shouted at him. You end up passing out on him after watching a movie with him.

anonymous asked:

Im saddened by the lack of teen Hiram and Hermione content. I'm sorry but I love this shady ass couple lmao

Teen Hermione? Queen bee. River Vixen. (always competing with Penelope for head cheerleader while trying to remain on somewhat friendly terms with her) Her family wasn’t rich, per say, but they were better off than most. She could have lived off her allowance, but actually liked having a job and sense of purpose. (I mean, it was just working the jewelry and perfume counter at her dad’s store, but it was still contributing.)

She wasn’t the kind of “pin me and lets go steady” kind of girl. She liked to keep her options open, enjoyed having a different boy take her out each weekend. It didn’t make her slutty. She just didn’t want to be one of those girls who settled for a boy at 15 and never experience anything else.

Of course, she was most often the object of two different boys affection. Fred Andrews and Hiram Lodge.

Fred was your typical, aw shucks all American kid. Played football (not great), had a band (also not great but damn did they throw their heart into it). Dates with Fred meant splitting sundaes at Pops and going to the Twilight and parking and singing along to whatever was on the radio until they both had tears of laughter falling down their faces. Fred was a gentleman. Never rushed or pushed and she knew deep in her heart this boy really cares about me.

But, as I said, Hermione wasn’t settling down in high school. No way, no how.

That Hiram Lodge on the other hand? Talk about a charmer. Came from one of the richest founding families of Riverdale. Big house, new car on his 16th birthday. Wrestling team (light weight, of course). Just like Fred, he was a shameless flirt, but damned if you didn’t even know you were flirting with him until he walked away. (level headed Mary was never much of a flirt, but even she couldn’t hold a conversation with Hiram without bursting into giggles and blushing. he just had than effect on people.) Hiram just had that air about him. You wanted him to like you, even if you couldn’t understand why. Dates with him were trips to nice restaurants in Greendale and lunch at the country club. Dates where you couldn’t just toss on some jeans and a crop top, you had to plan an outfit.

By junior year, Hermione realized she wasn’t getting asked out as much. As a matter of fact, it seemed like one weekend she was going out with Freddy, one weekend with Hiram, next weekend with Freddy again, and so on and so on.

Alice finally broke the news to her one day, laughing her head off at how naive Hermione was. Of course other guys weren’t asking her out anymore. She, Fred, and Hiram now made the ultimate Riverdale High love triangle. The school was practically placing bets on which boy she was going to choose by graduation and, “come on now, Hermione. Hiram has the money, but Fred has the heart. Don’t be stupid now.” Every other guy in school was wary about even getting to close. Because if you cross Fred, you’d have FP breathing down your neck looking for a fight. And if you crossed Hiram… well, god help you if you crossed the junior godfather.

Hermione stopped seeing them both for months. Took up extra shifts at the store just to keep herself busy. End of junior year, Fred came to her, hat in hand, asking her for another chance. She figured she’d punished him enough. And after all, wasn’t Fred the kind of boy you dreamed of? So wholesome and sweet. He’d jog a mile just to make sure he got to the door first so he could hold it open for her. (and then if he wouldn’t hold it open for the next ten people who walked in to because damnit that is so Fred.) So she went out with Fred and they started going steady. After all, senior year is full of making decisions, right? And at 17 going on 18, you’re not really settling anymore. You’re practically an adult who needs to make an adult decision. 

College was still so up in the air. Fred was staying in Riverdale, already had a job lined up working construction with his dad. He’d make foreman soon enough, hell maybe even management in a few years. Hermione could continue working at her dad’s shop (she was still undecided about college), and maybe even take it over when he retired. Her older sisters had already married and moved on, so who else would do it?

But then… wasn’t that all settling? All American boy in this all American town that time forgot. They’d never be well off, but they’d be comfortable. Never could afford to go to Europe, but they could definitely take a week to spend at the Jersey shore. Maybe if they saved enough, they could pack the kids in the car and all go to Disney World. Hell, it wouldn’t be glamorous, but they’d still be happy, right? Right?

Senior year got weird. Alice disappeared and Hal mentally checked out and Mary nearly went full on panic mode trying to get into a good college and FP was getting into some shit everyone was too afraid to question him on. And then good old Freddy was there, smile on his face, telling everyone to just relax. Everything is going to be just fine.

How Fred? How can everything be just fine when a life of Riverdale and being a shop girl and construction and weeks at the shore is right there and maybe it’s not what you want?

So she felt bad, so bad, when Hiram invited her and Fred to a party and she went without him. But what could she do? She needed some excitement in her life.   

And then her and Hiram spent the whole party on the bench swing in the yard while the party raged on inside. (alcohol only at this one. Alice was gone and everyone knew FP would only get you weed, nothing heavier.) They drank rum from the bottle and he told her about New York and going to school and how he wanted to stay there after graduation and fuck Riverdale, right? We don’t have to be these small town nothings. We can be bigger. Big fish in a small pond? Fuck it all. We’ll be big fish in the ocean still. 

And she leaned over and kissed him and he kissed her back. And the next morning she went to Fred’s house in tears and broke his heart and never looked back. 

Her parents always preferred  Hiram anyway.

When Alice came back to school, she made a point to call her a heartless bitch in front of the entire locker room one day. Even Mary became a bit cold towards her. 

And then prom came and they were crowned king and queen. (which Alice sweetly pointed out was only because her and Hal didn’t run.) And then graduation came and they had a huge bonfire party near Sweetwater River and when Fred and FP started singing around the fire, her and Hiram joined in with the rest of the senior class. They kept their distance though. She saw Fred toss his arm around Mary at one point and kiss her on the cheek and she couldn’t explain the feeling of discomfort afterwards.

They packed their bags in August. Only Mary came by to say good bye. As they hugged, Hermione asked her if she was dating Fred now. Mary told her to keep in touch.

They passed the Town with Pep! sign as they left Riverdale for good. She made the right choice. Right?

(i took this too far. did i take this too far? damn, send me more asks.)

I imagine that after years of marriage to a Vulcan, Amanda is a logic master. She can “logically” rationalize anything, wearing sundresses and floppy hats in her garden to dancing in the kitchen while she cooks.

When they first got married, she wasn’t quite as subtle. Sarek saw right through her attempts to logic him into cuddling with her, or going on picnics, or indulging in hot chocolate on a chilly evening (though he almost always ended up doing it anyway, for some logical reason that definitely didn’t have anything to do with being unable to resist Amanda’s “do it for me” face.)

But it becomes clear pretty early into Spock’s life that he’s inherited his father’s stubbornness, so she really steps up her game. By the time Spock is a teenager, Sarek is shocked to find himself regularly nodding along while Amanda suggests something ridiculous like slow dancing in the rain or sleeping under the stars before he realizes what she’s done.

Spock is tougher to fool because he has so much pressure on him to be all Vulcan all the time, but to her that just proves how much he needs her logical justifications to do things like plant flowers on I-Chaya’s grave, rant at the illogic of his classmates mocking him for his genetic makeup, and hug his mother goodbye when he is leaving to join Starfleet.

Of course, there are somethings that even Amanda can’t logic away, like Spock’s inability to accept himself as the beautifully unique person he is, rather than trying to force himself to fit solely into the Vulcan mold, or Sarek’s hardheaded anger at their son for daring to forge his own path and find where he belonged. For these things, she needed a little help and a lot of time. But both Sarek and Spock eventually come to accept that, logical or not, Amanda tends to get her way.

thank you @leanconnoli for this sweet ficlet! it really captured amanda’s heart and her strength

Lucy groaned as the bus went over the third bump during their thirty-minute trip, and Natsu’s stomach lurched. His motion sickness wasn’t as bad as it usually was, but that didn’t mean it was completely gone. Lucy grabbed her satchel from where it was sitting on the floor, afraid of what might happen if they went over a pothole and Natsu’s stomach was feeling particularly upset.

“L-Lucy, can you rub my head?” Natsu asked, his voice waning and weak.

“What? Why?” Lucy was confused for a moment, but when Natsu peered into her eyes with his puppy dog eyes, she couldn’t resist any longer. Sighing softly, she threaded her fingers through his locks. Natsu made a relieved noise and dropped his head onto Lucy’s lap before she could say anything.

Nice thing about work: So I’m a lunch lady at a high school right? Well theres this one girl thats, DECKED IN NERD MERCH. Like you have no idea. Of course i want to talk to this kid. But she never talks, just points. Kinda scared to look at people it seems. Usually alone. Kinda suspect she got some hardcore anxiety.

Except today. She saw my hat. For those that dont know, I have Undertale and BATIM pins on my hat. (had undertale for like a year now, but she never looked up to notice) And she looks up, and yells “BENDY! IT’S BENDY!”

Long story short batim is good and makes people happy and after a year of working there I finally heard this girls voice. I hope shes having a good day.

“RAVENCLAW!” The sorting hat bellowed, as Draco Malfoy sat in shock beneath it. Draco Malfoy, whose entire family had been sorted into Slytherin.

Legendary Pranksters// Teddy Lupin Imagine

a/n: just to let you know, y/h/h means your hogwarts house :) Also, let’s just pretend Snape and Dumbledore didn’t die for this imagine because I am not in the mood to cry, okie dokie!!

requests: could you do “how much does a pig weigh?” with teddy and sister!reader because they’re changing their noses to pigs.

Could I Get A 1 Shot Of Teddy & His Twin Sister Switching Forms When They Get Sorted. 

tags: @whatshernamemaria

twin!teddy and twin!reader

Of course you were nervous, every other first year at Hogwarts was nervous too. But you were nervous for a different reason than them. The others had their thoughts focused on which house they were going to be put into whereas you had more pressing matters at hand. You and your twin brother Teddy were preparing to pull off one of the biggest pranks Hogwarts had ever seen.

As you walked up the stairs to the Great Hall, you and your brother made jokes with the other first years to loosen them up and even did a few impressions. One of which was the famous pig nose. 

“Hey, y/n, how much does a pig weigh?” Teddy asked you loudly as you made your way to the front of the Great Hall.

You tried to stifle your laughter, you knew where this was going. 

“I don’t know Teddy, how much does a pig weigh?” You asked with your best innocent voice.

Teddy than switched his nose into a pig’s at the speed of lightning and jumped into your arms. 

“This much!” He yelled as the group of students around you burst into laughter.

While you were joking around with the students, Professor McGonagall watched you with half amusement and half sorrow. She had seen that joke before. Your mother, Tonks, used to form a pig’s nose on her face every once in a while to make the other students laugh. Minerva was happy the apple didn’t fall far from the tree, but was also nervous to get two more pranksters in her class. 

McGonagall than called the Great Hall to order. Everyone silenced out of respect for her and let Dumbledore greet both the new and old students back to Hogwarts. Right after that, the Sorting Hat ceremony began to start.

As the line got to the L’s, you and Teddy both nodded at one another.

“Teddy Lupin,” McGonagall read the name from the scroll. He sat down and had the sorting hat placed on top of his head. The hat opened it’s mouth and yelled, “HUFFEEPUF,” just as Teddy shapeshifted into a former wrestler known as The Rock in the muggle world.

The room erupted into noise from the muggleborns and half bloods who started laughing so hard some of them were brought to tears. 

Next it was your turn and you prayed that you could live up to the prank Teddy had pulled. You took a deep breath and lowered yourself onto the stool and let McGonagall place the hat on your head.

This time, just as the hat hit the top of your head, it yelled, “Y/H/H!” you morphed into none other than Severus Snape, wearing a pink gown and high heels. 

If the students thought Teddy was funny, then they thought you were downright hilarious. The energy and noise in the room doubled and even Dumbledore had to hide his face in his hands because of how hard he was laughing.

Snape, on the other hand, glared at you from his spot at the Professors’ table. He was embarassed of course, but deep down he was happy some amusement would be coming into his life from two more legendary pranksters. 

A Weekend in Paris

 Five months have passed since New Year’s Eve on the roof. The group of friends had been so happy since then. Farkle was overjoyed to be with Smackle again even if it was long distance. In a couple of days that distance would be no more. He would be in Australia with his beloved and they could pick up where they left off the day she had left for Australia. Video chats and late night phone calls were ok, but nothing could compare to the moment he would see her in person for the first time in months. Everyone had come with him to the airport and he was glad they did. He knew he would miss a lot while he was gone but would see them at the end of the year. They all had plans for the summer. Plans that didn’t really include the group as a whole. Maya and Josh would be spending the summer in Philly with his family. Zay and Sara would be staying in the city, as Zay was doing some summer theater and Sara was working. Riley and Lucas would be spending the summer in Texas and Lucas had some big plans for Riley. Lucas had mentioned his plans to Farkle and he couldn’t be happier for them. Riley was about to have a summer she would never forget.

Riley and Lucas were due to fly out of La Guardia airport for Austin, Texas the next morning at 9 a.m. They would be spending the whole summer at Pappy Joe’s Ranch in Texas. Riley couldn’t wait to get away and have Lucas all to herself for the summer. She was helping Lucas finish his packing and they were going to have dinner with Maya, Josh, Zay and Sara upstairs at the Matthew’s apartment. Topanga had been cooking all day and wanted to send Riley and Lucas off with a small get together of friends and family.

MAGIC CAN BE STOLEN: What happened to Swanqueen’s Magic

We all know Emma and Regina do the big magic of ouat. They even made an eclipse and broke a god’s spell twice. 

Originally posted by 4alarmfirecracker

Well, season 7 is about steal magic, to steal magic is a thing in ouat, its a thing in Emma and Reginas life. So I’ll talk about how Hook is the big teaf of magic to Emma, how Robin Fake stolen our Queen and how now the charmings stolen the Wish Evil Queen’s magic. Well this is a common theme, season 6 talked about this, Robin Fake stoled Reginas magic things and Hook  kept the scissors to take away what makes Emma special, we all know the thing what makes her special is her magic. And this is a long time issue.

Hook

Originally posted by dailykillian

Hes a pirate, and pirates stole things, dont you think is stranger he now have a lot of magic things, we have seen him since season 2, we needed his help a lot of times, he doesnt knew about magic but now looks like he knows so much and has a lot of magic things that he just brings out when he needs. Things he stoled.

The Bean

All start in season 2, when Emma meet him, with the magic bean, he stole the bean, and so they have this conversation:

“Captain Hook: Do you know what this is, Emma?

Emma Swan: The bean that the giant kept.

Captain Hook: Uh-uh-uh. Yes, indeed. A pirate always keeps a souvenir of his conquest, but this… well, this is much more than a mere trinket. This is a symbol. Something that was once magical, full of hope, possibility. Now look at it. Dried up, dead, useless. Much like you”.

Hear me out, shes the symbol, magical, full of hope and possiblitity, and we will see he takes her magic, hope and possibility away. Emma is our symbol, our magic, Hook is stealing her from us.

And so in the end of season 2, he stole other bean from Emma, the bean she would use to save the people in the town. 

The Kiss

Gif by @frankie-blue-sq

We all know Hooks kisses are bad to Emma, in season 3b Zelena cast a spell in his lips, so if Emma kissed him, all her magic, power would be taked, if Hook was good to Emma, was her true love the kiss would free him of the spell and save Emmas magic, but the kiss took Emmas magic. 

So we really saw this, he stole her magic with the kiss. 

The hat

Hook really does a great job stealing magic, this is a pirate job, right? In season 4 while Emma was trying to deal with her magic, Hook was “helping” Rumple to full the hat with magic, taking the fairies. And bc Hook doesnt talk the truth, Rumple almost takes Emmas magic. 

The back from underworld

Go after Hook in the underworld destroyed Emma, she start to lose her force. When Hook comes back this go more deeper, she not even can use her magic well. 

The scissors

And we are in this again. Its season 6 people, we started this in season 2, Hook got the scissors what could take Emmas magic, what makes her special.

And we all can look to Emma, she looks sick, dry, dead, useless.

Hook 2.0

He wanted to use Emma, he said he wanted the true love thing, how this could help him to find his daugther? Just if he wanted to use Emmas magic to this.

Robin Fake

Well Robin Wood is a thief, this new Robin is a bad thief, he steal for himself and from people who help him, Regina tried to help him and him stole her magic things. In the end he get the QUEEN, see the serum dont take the evil part of a person, it takes the feelings this person doesnt want the others know. Regina and Emma parallels Rumbelle, and Rumple wanted to take off his feelings for Belle. In the finale of season 5 Regina was losing control of her feelings, so Evil was taking control of her, and this just happened bc Hook cames back. Evil is Reginas feelings, feelings are magic, so shes magic in itself, and Robin Fake stolen her as Hook stolen Emma. 

When Regina and Emma tries to use their magic together after Regina got off of the Queen their magic is not so strong.

The Charmings

Emmas parents are very abusive, people dont talk about this but I will, they took a part of her, they agreed to her take away her magic so she could be normal, they did put her in the closet (and yes its a gay thing),in the alternative reality they did put her in the tower and they gave her to Hook as an object, Snow was planing Emmas wedding since season 2, she doesnt even knew Emma, in fact they dont know Emma, they dont care, they arent real of course, they represent her superego, and they are abusive to her bc she had an abusive creation. Evil represents Emmas ID. Wish Evil was banished of Wishland, so Emma was submissive there, Regina needed turn into Queen and kill the charmings so Emma could wake up. Hook and Charmings are working together to keep Emma submissive, the superegos job is to contain the desires. And thats why the charmings took Wish Evils magic. 

Zelena

Zelena was the person who did put the spell what took Emmas magic away, and she faced karma for this, she needed to sacrifice her magic to protect Emma and the others. Zelenas process is very interesting, in the second curse she did put things, we never saw what she really did put there but we saw she takes Reginas blood, thats how she oppened the vault, shes not Reginas sister. But the point is she wanted Regina to believe they were sisters, but why? Well Emma wants to be Reginas family, Zelenas process represents Emma desire, so she start this trying to see Regina as a sister, so she needed take away her feelings aka magic, you cant believe me so lets just see what follows this, we get Elsa, and with Elsa we had Ingrid, what Ingrid wanted? To make Emma and Elsa her sisters and family by force, in the same arc Rumple with Hooks help were stealing magic, and Rumple almost takes Emmas magic. Emma cant see Regina as a sister bc she loves her in other way, and we cant force family. So Zelena does a lot of bad things trying to take Reginas things but she ends up helping bc she wants Regina more than she wants anything bisides of course her daughter. So we need that Zelena takes her magic back.

The true love

Well the thing with true love is that its magic. We have true love couples and family, they help each other and do magic things. We saw Emma and Regina make magic together, even they made magic just with a touch as Snowing but what happens with people when they are with people whose arent their true loves? If true love bring magic, a no true love takes your magic, makes you sick and looking like death.

Thats why we dont see Emma and Regina making magic together anymore. And also Emma still has problems to use magic and we have saw just true love can help with this.

Regina- when Regina couldnt use magic in season 2, Emma touched her so the hat worked. In the underworld Regina couldnt use magic so she goes to see Daniel so a horse shows up and she heals the horse so she can use her magic again, and we all know Daniel was the person who took care of the horses.

Emma - Emma met Neal before go to underworld so she could use her magic without problem. When Emma wanted to heal Ella in season 6 she couldnt, she was having problems so Henry helped her touching her.

PS: this is an AU but I try to keep the mmfd atmosphere attached.

“Bye”, said Rae to her friend, Chloe.
“See ya soon, yeah”, Rae nodded and smile.

Outside Chloe’s flat, Rae immediately pointed to the nearest bus shelter due to she wanted to arrive at the Manchester Piccadilly railway station 30 minutes earlier before her schedule. She didn’t understand but her mood was so fine that day and she feeling pleasant on this.

***

Yesterday


“Rae, you have to see this. The fit and charming rising star from Manchester”, Chloe was scanning the article on the magazine, laid on her stomach. “He also has a good heart, he‘s done a number of charities and always try delivering such a deep message to the audiences behind every characters he’s nailed playing.”

No response, Rae focused on the music she was listening to and jotted down some points.
“God, Rae!!”, Chloe threw a fluffy cushion.
“What?!”
“Read this”, Chloe sat up and handed the magazine to Rae.

***

“Oh, it’s freezing”, Rae tightened her coat and made her hat into right position.

Rae walked down the street while looking around then stumbled upon a big TV screen playing an advertising of a brand new series program, showing Finn.

“Oh, there he is”, Rae smile’s interrupted by the screaming up ahead of her.

“What’s going on there”, she questioned inside her heart.

“Oh, he has ability of being teleported then”, when she reached the crowd. Rae shook her head from her own silliness.

“Excuse me, would you mind giving me a sign?”, Rae had waited until all of his fans already left. She smiled and showing nervous.

“No, of course not”, he decorated his face with sincere smile.
“Umm, here”, Rae gave her drawing notebook.

Finn signed her book and then, “For…?”

“Mmm, it is for my friend actually, her name is Chloe. She is very fond of you and I bet she will be overjoyed having this. There’s a chance she will be showing it off all around the city”, Rae chuckled.

Finn giggled, “And yours?”
“Eh?”
“Your name?”
“Oh! My name is Rachel, Rae’s fine”, Rae offered her hand.
“Finn, it’s very nice to meet you Rae”, still with his bashful smile.
“Want to have a picture together?”, Finn asked.
Rae startled, “Oh sure, this one will make Chloe very jealous”, Rae happy with her imagination.
They got some wefies using Rae’s phone cam.

“They turn out excellent”, Finn saw the photos while Rae swiping the screen to the right, but her thumb not purposely got one more swipe. It was a photo which Rae stands in front of her Uni front gate.

“So, you are Leeds University student then?”
“Ah yeaaah. Still struggling to earn my master’s degree I am”, she shrugged.
“That’s awesome! What course do you take?”
“Applied Psychology of Music”
“Interesting”
“It is…”, Rae dragged her eyes to side and she saw her bus was coming from afar.

“Well, I’ve to go. I’m so happy meeting you Finn, you are really a nice person. Wish u all good luck for your future projects”, Rae smiled so honest.

“Tagging me the photos on your Instagram, will you?”, Finn said quickly .
“Oh, sure. Bye, Finn!”
“Bye, Rae”, Finn smiled and feeling reluctant to see her turning away.

***

There was a hard wind blow. So hard, until it made Rae’s hat blown away.
“Ah! My hat!”, the hat still flying away from her and out of her reach.
“The one that got away. Naughty, naughty wind”, gave up on her hat.
Rae continued her walks, faster in order to keep pace with the bus.

Brugh!!

There was a sound from behind her. Rae turned around her body and saw an old lady with her stuff being spilled on the ground.
The bus was coming nearer yet Rae ran directly towards the old lady and helped her.
“Are you okay, mam?”
“Ya, i’m okay dear. I’m just feeling a bit dizzy, maybe because of the weather”
“Let me help you mam”, Rae started gathering the stuffs.
“Do you want me to get you something? A hot cup of tea maybe?”
“Oh, there’s no need love, I’m so thankful for your helping”
“Don’t mention it, mam”
After checking her okay all over again, Rae made her goodbye.
“OH MY GOD!”, “Sir, can you wait for a second!”, Rae was running hard to catch her bus which already stopped by the shelter.
“Thank you very much Sir! You are a hero!”, she gave him a salutation.
Rae proceeded to have a seat near the window. “My hat…”, she pouted.
And there was someone out there, holding her hat, smiling. “What a girl”.

***

Arrived in Leeds, Rae directly went to her flat. After having a moment to rest, she started cleaning up the room then got a hot shower.
“Chloe, you must be surprised with what I’m gonna tell you”
“What is it?”
“Can u guess?”
“You are being freed from your Thesis”
“Damn, Chloe. I pray so hard it will come true, yeah”
Chole giggled, “Then what is it?”
Rae sent Chloe the wefies also the photo of his sign addressed to Chloe.
“YOU MUST BE KIDDING ME! LUCKY BEACH YOU ARE RAE! TELL ME THE WHOLE STORY, HE IS A VERY NICE PERSON, I AM RIGHT, AREN’T I RAE!”, Rae had expected this reaction of Chloe.

***

Two days later

“Rae, doesn’t it look like your hat?”, Chloe sent her a chat with a photo showing a pic of her lost hat.
“Yeah I guess but I lost it two days ago. From where you got this pic, Chlo?”
“Finn’s”
“What?”
“On his IG! Posted yesterday”
“Well, I’m not sure if it’s mine or nah”
“Sent him a DM or just giving a comment, Rae. I have a feeling that it is absolutely yours”
“Keeeey”, rolled her eyes

***

“F..I..N..N.. N..E..L, there it is!” Rae found his IG then directly pointed to the photo of a hat.
Rae trailed her eyes to read the caption, and there was only 😊 written. Rae proceeded to send him a DM. “Hello, good afternoon, excuse me. I’m sorry if I’m bothering you but i just wanna know if the hat on your feed is mine?”, Rae sighed because of the doubt whether that was right thing or not she had done.
“Stupid Rae, you didn’t even mention who you are!”, Rae cursed herself then back to her hand phone to send another message.
“Ahya, this is me who…”, Rae didn’t get to complete her message when her phone got
notification.
“Afternoon, if you are the girl whom I met 2 days ago, so yes it’s absolutely yours, and I can tell you are the girl. 😉”
Rae didn’t expect to get replied this soon also she hadn’t yet given him her identity.
“Yea it’s me”, Rae bit her lower lip.
“It flew to me, Rae. I can give it back to you.”
“Oh, that’s very kind of you, thanks. I’m not living in Manchester anyway, but I can ask my friend to get it from you, yeah?”
“The one that you asked for my sign on her behalf?”
“She is 😀”
“Well, she can meet me tomorrow at Hard Rock Cafe around 2 p.m.”
“Perfect, I need to tell her first yeah and I will give you the confirmation later”
“Ok, Rae 😉”
“Thank you, thank you so much and I’m so sorry I can’t take it by myself… Finn”
“Don’t mention it Rae, it’s okay. It’s my pleasure”
“Yeaah, it will be absolutely your pleasure since you will meet a pretty girl, Finn”,inside her mind.
“It’s my pleasure to give the beautiful hat back to its beautiful owner. Hope one day I can meet you again, Rae. 😃”
Rae dumbfounded, she couldn’t get herself back after this suddenly nice saying she got.

***

“Chlooooo, please???”
Chloe finally released her laughter after several minutes Rae had begged her favour to take her hat, “Calm Rae, of course I will, I just teased you”
“Best mate I’ve ever had, you Chloe”
“The feeling’s mutual Rae”
Rae giggled, “Right Chlo right, ta so much babe”
***
Chloe sent Rae a photo of her and Finn with Finn’s arm looped around her shoulder and she wore Rae’s hat. “I got it right, babe. How do I look like? 😜”
“Absolutely gorgeous there you both 😍”
“He is Rae!!! And he is definitely a nice person! You are so lucky, Rae!”
“What do you mean?”
“I think he is interested to you, he even asked me your number”
“No way! You didn’t give it to him, rit?”
“I’m sorry Rae, I did the whole opposite thing. I gave him also had a lil chat about you”
Rae once again dumbfounded.

***

A day later

“Hi Rae, it’s me Finn. Got your number from Chloe, hope u don’t mind”. Rae got a message from a number she didn’t recognise.
“Oh, hiya Finn. No, of course not. So, is there anything I can help you?”
“Are you busy, Rae?”
“Nah, just got home from campus. Why?”
Then just in a matter of seconds, her phone rang.
“Hello, Rae umm, umm it’s me Finn. Afternoon…”, Rae thought she heard a sound like a heavy breath had been released at the other end.
“Afternoon, Finn. So….?”, she held her words due to her confusion.
“I just, I… just, just wanna hear your voice… Rae”, he sounded apprehensive.
“Hahaha my voice is not really that good, Finn”, Rae found it was very cute, she never knew that a bloke who looks so fine could be this nervous just to talk to her and wanting to hear her voice.
Rae attempted to melt the situation by asking him how he was doing then it eventually reached to friendly little chats.

***

Rae and Finn had managed their communication through several weeks. She had opened up to him about her activities and how she does her daily routines. Not entirely yet this is the furthest range she can put her trust on someone else besides her family and Chloe. On the other side, Finn often tells Rae about his projects and how sometimes he feels frustrated with his overcrowded schedule. There were a lot of books, songs, movies, inspiring people that they had been discussing. Music is definitely their favourite thing to ramble about, always ended with the conclusion that OASIS still at the top number of their own chart.
“I finally get days off Rae, thank God!”, exclaimed Finn at the other wire.
“I’m so jell!!!! But you really deserve it Finn!”
“Yeaaaaah, I’m so grateful. After almost a year I didn’t really have a real holiday”
“You are so dedicated Finn”, Rae said sincerely.
“Thanks Rae. For always being there patiently hearing me complaining and stressing this out. Thank you for all your hearten words that given me energy to bounce myself back”
“I’m nearly shed my tears Finn hahaha. I just try to be a nice person Finn. You, you are the one and only person who made it. So, what are you gonna do with this precious holiday?”
“There are several places I have a long waited to visit, actually. Yeah, beach, forest, and another calm ones to refresh my body and soul”, Finn paused, “How about your thesis Rae?”
“Oh, it’s nearly done Finn. I just need to make it more comprehensive by adding some number of research sources before meeting the professor to get his final revision. I hope I can make it on time and submit my thesis this term, Finn. Wish me luck yeah”
“God speed Rae. I’m so proud of you”
“The words back to you, Finn”
They both smiled with warm feeling filling up their hearts.

***

Three weeks later

“So, how’s the holiday going?”
“Splendid, loved it. I still have a week by the way and I plan to go to Leeds…”
“Oh”
“Oh?”
“I really am happy that you’re gonna be here, but I’m afraid I can’t keep you company because I need to deal with my thesis for next three days. The deadline will come within five days Finn”
“Who said I go to Leeds to meeting you”, Finn teased her.
“Oh, I guess…”
“Hahaha I’m kidding Rae, well there are another person I wanna meet actually. Archie, Chop, Izzy, they are my best mates and my uncle. But at the top of that, it is 100% you are the person I want to meet so badly”
“I’m afraid I will let you down from the first second you seeing me because I’m not in the best condition, you know, I look more miserable during this stressful week”
“You won’t Rae”
“So when will you get to here?”
“I don’t know, haven’t decided yet”
“Just keep me informed yeah, I will do my best to welcome you besides it’s really an honour for me to greet a famous actor”
“Don’t start, Rae hahaha”
And Finn took off to Leeds the next day. Without Rae’s knowing.

***

Finn arrived in Leeds with his uncle picking him up. He thought it would have to be much fun if there’s also Rae greeting him, but he had another plan.
Finn had met Archie, Chop and Izzy the day he arrived. His three best mates had moved to Leeds and built their career there after graduating from college. They shared each other story in how dealing with life and stuffs and Finn told them about the incidental “hat” event and the girl who had captured his heart by then, Rae.

The next day, Finn just had strolling around the town accompanied by Archie and having quality time with his uncle and aunt for the rest of the day.

Finn went to Leeds University at the third day. He immediately proceeded to Rae’s faculty. He meant to give her a surprise. Not long enough time of waiting he saw a figure from afar. He only met her once barely 3 months ago, but it feels like he doesn’t have a problem to recognise her and he misses her so much.
He still watched her from the distance, enjoying the scene played before his eyes. Her graceful walks and beautiful aura mesmerised him.
“Where are you?”, Finn finally got himself together and directly making a call.
“Speak of the devil, Finn! I’m about to call you. I have submitted my thesis earlier so I guess I can give you a welcome greeting”, she still didn’t have a clue that Finn had arrived.
“Well, I want you… To give me your warm greeting right now”
“What do you mean?”
“Just look to the left Rae”
Rae hesitantly turned her whole body to the left and she couldn’t hold herself from excitement.
“No way!!!”, she exaggerated then she took long strides and without her realisation she had hugged him. Finn was taken aback for awhile by her action but immediately not throwing the chance away to reciprocate and wrote two letters “H-I” on her back.
The seconds she realised about what she’d done, she shortly released her arms and muttered apologise to him. “Oh hi, hi Finn! I’m, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to, I just, I just…”, her voice dropped, she couldn’t find words account for her former action.
“No, it’s okay Rae, really”, he grinned ear to ear, couldn’t help his overflowing happiness. “So, how is it going?”
“It’s ups and downs, you know”, she shrugged. “But I succeeded submitting my thesis before the deadline, Finn!”, she shook her head and grinned widely.
“I know you will make it, Rae. I’m happy for you”, Finn wasted no time to give her a kiss on the cheek. Her cheeks forming the blush, she felt the warmness around her face.
“What’s your plan for today?”, he asked.
“I have several things to get done, you know, administration stuff and I need to return the books
I’ve borrowed from the library”
“Okay, I will wait for you around here yeah, and… are you fancy having a lunch with me girl?”,he slightly turned his head down and scratched his left ear.
“No, I mean, yes! But I’m afraid this campus thing will take up a lot of time and I can’t make it before the lunch also… I gotta go to somewhere after that, so how about tomorrow?”
“Perfect! Speaking about that, to where are you gonna go after Rae?”
“Oh, this is kinda voluntary activity, Finn”, she hesitantly continued her words, “I’ll go to the old and orphaned house. I have been missing it for awhile during my work on thesis”
“Can I come with you Rae?”
She blinked her eyes fast, feeling doubt about what she had heard. “Are you really?”
“Yeah!”
“It’s lovely Finn”, she couldn’t count exactly how many times her heart was awed by this kind-hearted man.

***

They barely had their proper lunch, just bought to-go burrito then proceeded to the place she had mentioned. Rae and Finn arrived at the front door of the shelter. She knew that Finn feeling nervous. “Ready?”, she asked and grabbed his hand. Finn just turned his head to the right, filling the each gaps on her hand by his fingers and smiled.
There was one room filled with the children and old people accompanied by a number of shelter officials. The moment Rae opened the door, there was one loudly shout came from a child’s mouth, “RAE’S BACK!!”, followed with the cheers from the others. Finn turned his eyes to Rae’s face. She expressed contentment and her eyes covered with little tears.
She walked through the room, the children started running towards her and forming a big group hug. “We’ve missed you, Rae!”
“I’ve missed you too my dear lil sweethearts!”, she kneeled to their eye level.
After done with the hugging she was back to Finn and introduced him. Rae continued forming a circle with the children, she’d already grabbed a story book and about doing the story telling, it was ended by them eddying within a cheerful dance. Finn himself didn’t need a long time to get along with the children. He even had several chit-chats with the old. Rae knows he has a pure heart and this thing accentuates his charm.

They spent around two hours there and it came the time for them to say goodbye. Finn and Rae gave each of them hug, till they reached to one little girl, “I love you Rae!”. Those words affected Finn’s heart, it put him into a struck dumb.
“Earth to Finn, earth to Finn!”, Rae waved her hand in front of his face. “Are you alright?”
“Yeah, yeah, I’m okay”
Rae smiled, she turned her body back to the child, “I love you more darling, and I promise I will come again on the next chance yeah”.

That day, Rae was knackered yet felt so content.

***

Rae and Finn had arranged for having a lunch around twelve o’clock. He promised to collect her at her flat. She wore a long sleeve blouse in turquoise pastel colour, perfected with dark wash blue jeans and her high-cut blue canvas Chuck Taylors. The turquoise colour let her light skin shine brighter. “You are so beautiful today, Rae”, said Finn out of the blue while walking towards the restaurant they agreed to go. “You also look handsome Finn, everyday”, Rae smiled and chuckled.

The lunch ran smoothly, they had chats about everything they had missed. Finn also said thanks for having him at the volunteer activity yesterday. He had a good time and he told her about missing his Nan. It was an excruciating lost for him. Reminiscing the times how she treated him with her tender heart, she had long gone but not forgotten. It ended with Rae trying to comfort him.
They continued to spend the day together. They visited some music and book stores also went to the cinema. The night had come down with they had no notice and Finn walked Rae home.

“Thanks for today Finn”, “Thanks for today Rae”, they said coincidentally. They both chuckled and let their head down shyly.
“Thanks for accompanying me yeah, I was having great times”
“It’s been my pleasure Finn, really. So, when will your train depart tomorrow?”
“It’s scheduled at 3 p.m., my uncle will get me to the station”
“I will miss you so much, Finn…”, her voice slowly turned into a whisper as her eyes trailed down starring into the floor.
Finn couldn’t contain his feelings any more. He embraced Rae into a hug. Rae’s body was stiff for awhile until she finally melted in Finn’s arms and Finn tightened his grip. After a moment passed, Finn reluctantly broke the hug. He accumulated the energy to be courage and shook off the nervous feeling. He started to move his hand to her face, caressing her left cheek with his palm. Her face became reddened so she ducked her head far down. Finn trailed his fingers down her jaw line and with his thumb and forefinger he slowly brought up her face and glued his eyes at hers, searching for the bravery.
The night was so calm and quiet. He bet she could hear his rock rhythm heartbeat. “Rae”, he spoke with huskier tone. “Yeah”, there was a sigh along her answer. The tension became thicker. “Ummm, umm..maybe it is too soon but…”. “But?”, she tilted her head slightly. As much as he was inclined to lunge his body so he could capture her plump lips, he tried to hold his eagerness. “I find this is so comforting to be around you and I enjoy it so much. I, I, can’t stop thinking about you, Rae. You are a very kind person, you are pretty and so beautiful, your soul, your attitude, your every little thing. You are so lovable, Rae. I like you, so much it hurts”, he was struggling with the words trying to utter his feeling. He hoped she would understand and believe him.

Rae just stood still but her eyes showed a warm reflection. Done with his ramble, “I’m sorry I’m no good at words Rae”. She just shook her head and smiled, so, so, tenderly. “Can I kiss you Rae?”. She nodded slowly. Finn swallowed his saliva as well as his nervous, started leaning his body and locked his sight to her lips. When the gap between their faces became narrower, he paused and raised his eyebrows, once again he looked up at her behind his fringe and she bit her bottom lip. At the millimetre from her face, he felt warm breath began brushing his face. There, with one slowly little movement he finally put his lips at hers and their eyes closed.
Her lips were far more delicious than he had imagined. He first kissed her lips very mildly, until she was relaxed and he dared to cup her left cheek. His thumb was stroking her cheek as well as his forefinger trailing up and down along the auricle of her ear. He could feel her hand crawling slowly into his chest and tugged his shirt material. His other hand trailed down to her lower back then he looped her waist, pushed her body much closer to his. Rae brought her still free hand to the back of his neck and she initiated the kiss to be reciprocal. It became heated as Finn dragged his tongue along her lower lip. She felt butterflies lurched inside her stomach, made her moaning into the kiss and opened up her mouth. Finn took this opportunity to lunge his tongue inside her mouth and played with hers. Their tongues danced in melodious movement. After several minutes they finally broke the kiss caused of lack of oxygen they suffered. Finn opened up his eyes first and had a chance to see Rae still closed her eyes adorned with her struggling to catch her breath. Satisfied with what he had done affected her this much, he captured her head with his both hands and gave her some more passionate kisses. Rae slowly opened up her eyes, this was a very brand new feeling she ever experienced. “Hi girl”, Finn smiled, “So what now?”. Rae returned his smile and shyly nodded.

***

Finn had taken his train back to Manchester. That night, they successfully had made a pact to maintain their communication regardless the distance and situations they need to cope.

***

Three months later

“So, my graduation day will be held on Friday next week. As keen as I want your presence Finn, I understand your bustling schedule”, Finn still caught a hint of disappointment in her voice.
“I am so sorry Rae, I’ll try as best as I can yeah. Listen, if there’s anything I can do, you need to trust me, I will Rae”. She put an angelic smile on her face and blew a kiss bye through her front phone cam.
Finn promised to himself that as long as he breathes, he will make her keeping that smile.

***

Graduation day

“Congraduations Rae!!! I’m a proud best mate!”, Chloe hugged her and gave her a hard kiss on the cheek. She had been waiting for Rae at the garden outside the hall.
“Thanks Chlo! Thank you for always being with me through good and bad times, babe. Thank you for not giving up on me, yeah”, her eyes got little teary. “Ah, this is the precious signature I have promised you!”, Rae handed Chloe her drawing notebook.
“Thanks babe! It’s a pity he is unable to attend your valuable moment Rae”
“Yeah, honestly I kinda feel a bit disappointed but I understand really. It’s no big deal. By the way where’s my hat?”, she stretch out her hand to Chloe.
“Ah! That legendary hat! About that…. There! There is your hat!”, Chloe exclaimed excitedly. She pointed over Rae’s shoulder.
Rae turned around her whole body and shocked by what she saw. There were Finn coming along with Archie, Chop, Izzy also Linda, Karim and her little sister.
“So, it’s a surprise then! Chlo!”, Rae turned her head to Chloe on the back. Chloe just shrugged and rolled her eyes.
Rae walked towards her mum, Karim, and her little sissy. She uttered her thankyous and grateful then gave each of them big hugs. Archie, Chop and Izzy approached Rae to introduce about themselves and congratulated her.
“It’s about time! Finn had talked much about you guys and I’m so glad to finally meeting you all in person. Thank you very much for your times I mean it, but, did Finn threaten you guys to come?”, Rae stern her voice. Their expressions became tightened. “I’m joking!”, Rae laughed heartily. They four dissolved into laughter.
It was Finn’s turn to face Rae. He seemed a bit unnerving but remained steady nonetheless. “What? What a dickhead you are!”, teased Rae impatiently. “So this is what I get from my girlfriend after a long tiring trip to here?”. Rae shook her head and put her lips at his briefly, they both smiled into the kiss.
There were her hat, a drawing notebook along with the marker, and a hand bouquet flower in Finn’s hands. “Congratulations, m’dear”, he said as he handed her the stuff.
“Thanks Fi-“, Rae hadn’t yet finished her words as Finn suddenly knelt down.
“What the hell are you doing?”, she said in whisper tone yet sternly. “Get yourself up Finn”. She was confused and felt a bit anxious since there were a lot of people surrounded. But Finn kept his posture. His hand proceeded into his trousers pocket. In no time, there was a jewellery box with a shiny ring embedded in its black velvet cushion.
“Rae, I might be a dickhead you reckon, but, this particular dickhead can’t think how his life’s gonna be without you”, he paused to take a gulp, “Here, I’m Finn Nelson kneeling before Rachel Earl, propose you to be my company for the rest of my life. If you accept my proposal, please write yes and wear your hat, and simply write no if you don’t”.

Rae took time to process what just happened, she walked back a few steps then she turned around her body. After a moment, she turned back her body, facing Finn again. “Get up Finn”, she begged him. Finn followed her instruction.
She started opening the notebook and showing Finn the first page. It’d been written ‘I can’t’. She paused to absorb his reaction. His shoulders slumped and his eyes reflected the sadness.

But Rae wasn’t finished yet.

She turned another page.
‘I can’t say no’
And another page,
‘So, it’s a YES’
And the last page,
‘Thousand times YESES’

Finn’s gloomy demeanour sharply diminished. His beam elevated as Rae turned the pages and it reached its peak when Rae wore her hat.

They both walked approaching each other and meeting at the half way. Rae took him to her embrace and dipped her face into his shoulder. Holding her tears, she said, “Let’s be dickheads together”.

-The end-
