Since Jason’s truck is still getting fixed up in the shop, they use Trini’s 1998 Land Cruiser as their transportation (She constantly reminds her friends that it’s two years older than them) and that they better respect it. Billy takes her seriously. The others don’t. Zack’s sure that Trini loves the car almost as much as she loves Kim.

  • First of all, it’s Trini’s car. after years of saving money from birthdays and a good paying summer job before she moved to Angel Grove, she bought it with her own money.
  • It’s missing a headlight and has a huge crack down the middle of the windshield. 
  • Trini threatens the boys every time they get in “Zack if you put a dent in the roof I’ll kill you” and “Jason if you make us crash you’re paying for the damages.” 
  • She doesn’t threaten Billy or Kim
  • Kim gets control of the AUX cord and is the only one allowed in the passenger seat (which pisses off Zack and he tries to take it from her. Trini says she’ll throw him out the window) 
  • They start to call her car Hulk because no matter how much shit they put that car through, it’s still in one piece (besides the missing headlight and crack in the windshield) and that it really does feel like it’s indestructible.
  • One day Kim decides to have Billy hotwire Hulk so she can take him to the shop to “Paint over the ugly grey”
  • Trini catches them and just stands there looking all disappointed at her girlfriend with her arms crossed as Billy goes, “KIM MADE ME DO IT, I SWEAR!!” 
  • Trini forgives Billy
  • She doesn’t forgive Kimberly 
  • Later that same week, it’s Trini’s birthday so Kim wakes Billy up at 6 in the morning to steal Hulk. Kim takes it to the shop and replaces the light and windshield. 
  • They drive back to an angry Trini which quickly grows into a happy Trini because, “Holy shit, both of the lights work again!!!” 
  • The next day Trini notices painted pink lips in the corner of her trunk, which she didn’t notice before. Kim just smiles from the passenger seat as she hears Trini, “Kimberly!” 
  • Hulk is the coolest car in the parking lot of Angel Grove. Everyone constantly asks Trini she’ll give them a ride. She tells them to fuck off. (They grumble when Trini lets Kimberly in)  
  • Billy buys Trini a power ranger sticker family (Even though Trini swore that she’d never put a sticker on Hulk, she does it anyways because it’s Billy and she didn’t know that people were making them into car stickers now but she thinks it’s pretty damn cool) 
  • Trini gives her spare key to Kimberly 
  • Zack tries to steal it
  • Sometimes the gang shows up to school late because, “Kimberly, did you take my key?” “What? No, Trini, I haven’t seen your key, I have my own.” Trini and Kim then start bickering about using Kim’s key and Billy just goes, “It’s in your hand, Trini.” 
  • Jason wants to sell his truck for a land cruiser 
  • He doesn’t because, “Jason if you get a wannabe Hulk I’ll cut your balls off.” 
  • It’s almost like Kimberly lives in that car. Her sweatshirts and various articles of clothing are everywhere
  • One day when it’s just Zack and Trini, Zack just holds up a pink bra. (Trini slams on the brakes in the middle of traffic just to punch him all while her face gets red) Zack doesn’t stop laughing. 
  • No matter how many laws they seem to break with Hulk, they never get caught

London. You wanted to get to London ever since you could think of places to travel. London just was so full of amazing things to see and also a british accent never failed to amaze you.

And when you met Klaus and immediately fell in love with his thick british accent, this culture amazed you even more. It had taken a long time for Klaus and you to get together. It didn’t take long for you to fall in love, though. But as you got to know Klaus you also knew why it was so hard for him to let people in. But now, the two of you finally were together and made each other as happy as you had never been before.

This week, Klaus had decided to take you away from New Orleans, where the both of you currently lived with the rest of his family, to travel to England with you. He had booked a nice hotel where you’d be staying in. Right now, you looked out of the window onto the rainy streets of London and sighed in satisfaction. You had never travelled further than New York with Klaus and being so far away from everything you were used to with the love of your life was quite relaxing.

You felt Klaus’ arms wrapping themselves around your waist and his chin was soon placed on your shoulder. “Enjoying the view, love?”, he asked quietly and placed a kiss onto your neck. You hummed in response and truned in his grip. A towel was wrapped around his torso. “But I’m loving this view.”, you grinned and leaned forward to kiss his lips. He wrapped his arms around you and your arms were wrapped together behind his neck.

But Klaus broke the kiss soon enough and you pouted in response. “Patient, love. You’ll be getting all you want of me in the evening, but I have to shower first.” he explained and pecked your lips only for a second. “Alright, but hurry. I also want to explore a little bit of this city.”, you exclaimed as he walked into the bathroom.

Klaus was only in the bathroom for about a minute when you heard a knock on the door. You got up and opened it, thinking it was someone who brought you food. You were wrong. You were surprised by two men standing in front of you, both wearing black suits. Before you could even think about what was going on, one of them injected you something. Due to you immediately passing out, you considered it was vervain.

Dirty Thoughts

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader (mind reader)

Warning: Language, smut… (I’m not sure how good this is. Work with me it’s only my second time writing it.)

You swore when you joined the Avengers you would never invade their thoughts, but what happens when you get drunk at Tony’s birthday party and hear the things Bucky Barnes is thinking, about you?

This was a request from @imagicana

“Come on Y/N,” Tony trails after you as you continue your way down the hallway. “they have hidden secrets.” Tony pleads with you, hoping you’ll give in and use your gift to pick through the team’s minds.

“Tony, I can’t pick through someone’s thoughts. I can only hear what they are thinking at the moment.” You remind him for the millionth time.

“But it could be something so good. Call it a birthday gift.” He grins at you.

How to Shop On a Budget

This is going to be an all-inclusive post on how to shop for food, clothes/shoes, toiletries/house supplies, and makeup on a budget. Here we go!


1. Shop after you’ve eaten a fulfilling meal. If you shop on an empty stomach, you’re going to buy more food than you’ll need and it’ll probably be food that isn’t good for you.

2. If you’re shopping for a week or two, have a menu already for those weeks of the foods you’re going to eat. Know the ingredients you’ll need for these foods.

3. From the menu you’ve created, make a grocery list before entering the store. Stick to this list like it’s a lifeline and you’re stranded on an island. If you don’t get sidetracked, you probably won’t be tempted to buy foods you don’t need.

4. Try to limit yourself to only going to the grocer’s once or twice a week. If you go more often, the more money you’re going to end up spending.

5. Shop in a store that you know well. If you’re shopping in a store where you’re unfamiliar with the layout, you’ll get sidetracked from your list and be more tempted to buy food that you won’t need.

6. You should probably be cleaning out your fridge and pantry every couple of weeks or so. This allows you to see what you’ve got and use it up before if expires and before you buy anything else.

7. On the same note, keep your fridge and pantry fairly organized. If you’ve got a mess, it’s going to be hard for you to keep track of what you do and don’t have and you’re going to have a hard time making an accurate shopping list. Don’t waste money by buying something you didn’t know you already had because your fridge is a wreck.

8. If your grocery store offers coupons, use them! Even if they’re only saving you pennies, the pennies will add up. Take the money you save at the end of every month and put it towards other expenses such as bills, pamper yourself with it, or deposit it into a savings account.

9. Don’t use coupons to buy something if you’re not going to use it. However, if you plan your meals for the week around coupons, you can definitely save big $$, be the judge of when to use coupons or not. Similarly, if things are buy one get one half off and their easy to store and non-perishables like granola bars and you always eat granola bars for snacks, buy as many as you can afford or as many as you need. Be the judge of when to use coupons and/or bulk sales. 

10. Use the calculator app on your phone to keep track of how much money you’re spending. This will help you to stick to your budget/grocery list and keep you from overspending. Don’t forget to allow for taxes!

11. Cook meals that you can get three or four servings out of like spaghetti and soup. Freeze these leftovers and reheat them when you’re ready for your next meal. It’s an amazing money saver. Leftovers are my life.

12. Foods that are fairly cheap and versatile: 

  • eggs – scrambled, hard-boiled, fried, they go with anything
  • potatoes – buy a sack of them instead of the instant packs, they’ll last forever and you can make mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, fried potatoes, sliced potatoes, diced potatoes in soups, the list is forever
  • Apples — these last forever on the counter, you can eat them with yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies, peanut butter, or alone
  • Pasta noodles – you can do anything with pasta noodles and the carbs are filling
  • Any type of canned beans – green beans, black eyed peas, pinto beans, brown beans, they’re all delicious, buy what you like and they can be eaten alone as a side, in soups, or topped on other foods, again protein is filling and definitely cheaper than meat
  • Canned vegetables in general – wash them in cold water before cooking to get rid of all the extra salts and other ingredients they add to canned goods that aren’t good for you
  • Rice – I’m not a fan of rice but it is cheap and you can literally do anything with it

13. Use store savings cards. Even if you don’t care about the points (I don’t), the cards will usually get you discounts on some items and allow you to get items on sale that people without cards wouldn’t.

14. If you eat/can afford meat, buy meat when it goes on sale and freeze it until you’re going to use it.

15. If you’re dead set on buying produce, get it while it’s in season and refrain from buying something when it’s not in season. Instead, use the produce that is. Produce and when they’re in season:

  • Apples: late summer through fall
  • Apricots: late spring through early summer
  • Artichokes: spring and again in early fall
  • Asparagus: spring
  • Avocados: summer
  • Basil: summer
  • Beets: year-round
  • Blackberries: summer
  • Blueberries: summer
  • Boysenberries: early summer
  • Broccoli: fall and winter
  • Brussels Sprouts: late fall and winter
  • Butternut Squash: fall and winter
  • Cabbage: fall and winter
  • Cantaloupes: winter and early spring
  • Carrots: year-round
  • Cauliflower: fall and winter
  • Celery: fall and winter
  • Cherries: late spring and summer
  • Chickpeas: summer
  • Corn: summer
  • Cranberries: fall
  • Cucumbers: summer
  • Eggplant: summer and early fall
  • Figs: summer and fall
  • Garlic: summer and fall
  • Grapefruit: winter and spring
  • Grapes: late summer and early fall
  • Green Beans: summer and early fall
  • Horseradish: fall and winter
  • Kale: fall and winter
  • Kiwis: winter through spring
  • Leeks: fall through spring
  • Lemons: winter and spring
  • Lettuce: year-round
  • Limes: late summer and fall
  • Mandarins: winter
  • Mangoes: summer
  • Melons: summer and early fall
  • Mushrooms: spring through fall
  • Nectarines: summer
  • Potatoes: spring through summer
  • Okra: late summer and early fall
  • Onions: spring through fall
  • Oranges: winter and spring
  • Peaches: Summer
  • Pears: fall
  • Plums: summer
  • Pomegranates: fall
  • Pumpkins: fall
  • Rutabagas: fall and winter
  • Peas: winter
  • Strawberries: spring and summer
  • Sweet potatoes: fall and winter
  • Tomatoes: summer
  • Turnips: fall through spring
  • Watermelons: summer
  • Zucchini: summer

16. Pay attention when you’re at the register. Things may get rung up too many times or may not register that they’re on sale. My mom swears by this.

17. if at all possible, shop with cash. If you don’t have more cash than what your budget is, then you can’t go over.

Clothes and Shoes

1. Buy clothes when they’re out of season. You need winter clothes? Go online in the summer and stock up on what you’ll need.

2. Check around several different websites and stores when buying clothes. Oftentimes I can find the same item I need somewhere for cheaper than somewhere else.

3. If a store you like has an app and you’re sure of your size, get the app. I have the Charlotte Russe app and they’re always having app-exclusive sales on shoes and other clothing.

4. Buy items that are versatile and you can make many outfits with. My must have versatile items (you don’t have to have them all, these are just some options):

  • Jeans: light-wash, dark-wash, black, boyfriend, and distressed
  • Basic business attire: solid colored slacks, solid colored pencil skirt(s)
  • Dresses: black bodycon, gray or white bodycon, and t-shirt
  • Jackets: bomber and jean
  • Solid colored items: shirts, body suits, camisoles, sweaters, halter tops, leggings
  • Cardigans
  • Good winter coat (invest on a good one, it’ll save money in the long run)
  • Shorts: light-wash and dark-wash
  • Overalls
  • Skirts: skater, leather, blue jean
  • Simple pair of white/black/grey heels
  • Solid colored pair of flats
  • Solid colored pair of sandals
  • A pair of comfy shoes like Nike’s, Converse, Vans, etc.

5. Don’t buy all the latest trends. If you buy them the year afterwards, no one is going to care. You should only be buying what pleases you anyways so if you’re buying it just because it’s the latest fashion, you’re wasting money.

6. Don’t be afraid to buy your clothes from thrift stores, consignment shops, or yard sales. I find great pieces from these places all the time. It can be very hit or miss but it’s always worth the look.

7. Declutter your closet and the beginning of every season. If you’ve got something you wore only once or twice or something that still has tags on it at the bottom of your closet, get rid of it. Sell it or donate it.

8. Take care of your clothes and shoes to keep them looking good and lasting longer.

9. Know when to buy quality. If you’re messy and always getting stains on your shirts, you don’t have to buy the best quality shirts out there. Get something cheap and comfy if you’re going to have to throw it out later.

10. Shop sales racks first. I got a shirt from Old Navy once for a dollar on the sales racks. The sales racks are my (and your) best friend.

11. Places I shop:

  • Rue 21
  • Charlotte Russe
  • Goodwill
  • Plato’s Closet
  • Walmart (seriously they’re stepping up their quality, I bought some slacks and pencil skirt from here a while ago and they’re still good, I don’t recommend their shoes though)
  • TJMaxx
  • Old Navy
  • Local thrift stores and yard sales

12. Places others have recommended to shop but I haven’t tried yet:

  • Amazon
  • Zara
  • Mango
  • H&M
  • ASOS
  • Target

Toiletries and House Supplies

1. Things to buy from a dollar store/dollar tree:

  • Cards for occasions, party supplies, and gift wrap and bags
  • Seasonal decorations
  • Reading glasses (not prescription glasses)
  • Hair accessories and necessities
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Dishware, cookware, and decorative vases or bowls
  • Storage containers for food and other storage bins
  • Candy and sodas
  • Dishrags and towels
  • Medicine
  • Pet treats and supplies
  • Makeup (not everything)
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Baby supplies
  • Paper products
  • Personal items such as pads or tampons
  • Sandwich bags
  • Band-aids and other first-aid items
  • Mailing labels
  • School supplies

Not everything on this list may be available at your dollar store or may even be a better deal than your local Walmart or other retail store so check around.

2. Again, use coupons and store cards to your advantage!

3. Shop for school supplies when there’s no-tax weekend. It’ll save you so much $$

4. Same as with clothes and shoes, check around many stores to find the best prices on goods and then make a shopping list once a week and hit up all the stores for the specific goods they have the best deals on.

5. Make a specific shopping list for what you need and stick to it.

6. Keep all of your personal products and your cleaning cabinet organizes so you know what you do and don’t have and can avoid buying duplicates in case you’re tight on money.


1. I watched a ton of YouTube videos for drug store hauls and dupes.

2. Ask your friends and family if they have any recommendations for drug store steals and deals.

3. Try to avoid high end makeup if you can. You can usually find a drugstore dupe of almost if not the same quality and for way cheaper.

4. If you want to splurge on yourself and buy high end makeup, don’t buy it when it first comes out. Sometimes the items will go on sale online a while after they come out and all the hype has gone down.

5. Not only for makeup but for clothes and shoes as well, shop on cyber Monday or Black Friday to get ultimate money savings

Where to get quality makeup for a low price:

  • Brushes: E.L.F., Ecotools, Morphe, BH Cosmetics
  • Mascara: Maybelline
  • Blushes: Milani, NYX
  • Lipstick: NYX, Colourpop, Maybelline
  • Eyeshadows: NYX, Colourpop, Morphe, Coastal Scents
  • Primer: Maybelline, NYX
  • Setting Spray: NYX, Milani, Hard Candy
  • Highlighters: Rimmel, LA Girl, Maybelline, Milani
  • Brow Gel: NYX
  • Loose Powder and Under Eye Concealer: E.L.F., Maybelline, NYC
  • Foundation: L’Oreal, E.L.F, Cover Girl
  • Pressed Powder: Rimmel
  • Bronzer: Milani, Essence, Makeup Revolution
  • Brow Mascara: Essence
  • Eyeliner: LA Girl, NYX
  • Contour: Makeup Revolution, BH Cosmetics
  • BB Cream: LA Girl

Places to get a variety of stuff for good quality but may be hit or miss or be of varying price ranges:

  • Catrice Cosmetics: good products but limited in options
  • Chi Chi: good for large palettes
  • BH Cosmetics: good for a variety of everything but may be hit or miss
  • Coastal Scents: good for eyeshadows
  • LA Girl: good for lipsticks and highlighters
  • Makeup Revolution: good for a variety of things but different price ranges
  • NYX: good for a variety of things but may be hit or miss

This post has taken me forever with all of the research, I hope everyone can get a use out of this. Enjoy!

Originally posted by dolanslife

“I know mom, I think he’s the one.” You smiled happily and tucked a strand of loose hair behind your ear as you stared down at the text your boyfriend of three years sent you.

Grayson: Can’t wait till you come home from your parents, I miss you so much babe. 😘

“You wouldn’t mind If I headed back to LA a little early..would you?” You sat up from your seat and gave your mom your signature pair of puppy dog eyes. The ones that always worked on Grayson. She sighed as she placed her hands on her hips. “You really love him don’t you?” She questioned with a small smile. “Of course mom! Grayson’s amazing.” You gushed and stood up from your seat. You walked over to your mother and pulled her into a hug. “Please?” You whispered and smiled coyly. “You still act like such a child.” She laughed and you pulled away, your hands still on her shoulders. “Fine. But next time you come you’re staying the full week.” She wagged a finger at you and you squealed. You decided to surprise Grayson with a visit after being separated for 5 days since you were visiting your parents. You couldn’t wait to see his reaction once you stepped into his apartment, you’d hug him and kiss him as if it was your last time. Then you’d both spend the night together. You knew you were overreacting, it was only 5 days, but you loved him with all your heart and being away from him for so long broke you.
You missed his floppy hair, warm smile and corny jokes. You missed the way his hazel eyes sparkled in the light and how his soft pink lips felt on yours. You especially missed how he left goosebumps all over your body with one single touch.

He’d have your back arching with one kiss, hands roaming and groping at your body.
Moans would be brought from your lips as he sped up his tempo, going inhumanly fast. His fingertips dancing along your curves, leaving a trail of fire in its wake. The thoughts left you even more excited to finally see Grayson. So as the plane finally landed, you did your best to pass by the large crowds of people in search of your luggage. As you dragged your suitcase behind you, you frowned at your phone. Grayson still hadn’t replied to the text you had sent him before you even got onto the plane. Thinking your phone was just buggy from being in airplane mode for too long, you tucked it away into your pocket as you stepped into the uber.

You quietly hummed to yourself as you walked towards your shared apartment with Grayson.
You smiled as you fished into your purse in search of the key for he door as you imagined him looking up at you with one of his big, toothy, crooked smiles, telling you how much he missed you and how happy he was that you were back, then whisking you away to your bedroom. Turning the knob and opening the door swiftly, you stepped into the room and started to call out for Grayson. “Babe?-”

You stopped dead in your tracks when your eyes made contact with the single thing that broke you. You saw Grayson jump up from lying down on the living room couch, a desperate look on his face. You could just barely make out a figure behind him, but you knew someone was there.
“Who… Wha…?” You stammered, not being able to speak since your throat felt completely dried out.
You watched with fright as Grayson stood up from the couch and took one firm step towards you, sympathy in his eyes. The figure behind Grayson also got up and came into view. Her green eyes sparkled in the dim lights and you instantly felt self conscious of your own.
She wore a tight tank top and light washed denim shorts. Her platinum blonde hair stopped just above her elbow and her eyes were solid, piercing right into you with satisfaction. Satisfaction that she stole him from you.
“Y/N,” Grayson suddenly broke the uneasy silence and your eyes darted towards his, fuming. You were fuming. You felt something well up inside you, like a storm at the peak of it’s strength. Grayson took another step forward, raising a hand up from his side as he did.
“Don’t..” You whispered as he extended a hand to try and grab you.
You felt your eyes begin to water and your heart’s shattered pieces swept away by the instant anger that coursed through your veins. You tightened your fists into balls and looked down, squinting your eyes shut as you willed yourself to remain standing as your arms and legs began to tremble. A quiet sob escaped your lips and you looked up to meet the hazel eyes of Grayson, the man you had been so sure you were destined for, the man you thought was the one, the man you loved. You looked down at the promise ring on your finger that Grayson had given you when you first started dating. “I promise my heart to you and you only.” He had said. What a lie. With a trembling hand, you slowly pulled it off and stared at it blankly. You forced your legs to move but you felt glued to the floor. You brought a hand up to wipe at the wetness of your eyes as you started to walk towards Grayson. You grabbed his hand and placed the ring, the ring that had meant so much to you, the ring that symbolized your everlasting love, into his empty palm. You closed it as you closed your eyes, a single tear seeping through and falling onto his clenched fist. “It’s over.” You breathed and your eyes fluttered open. A look of hurt and regret flashed onto Grayson’s face. He reached to grab your hand and you tugged it away. “No!” You growled and looked up at him through the redness of anger that was clouding your vision. “I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.” He whispered and you met his gaze. “How long?” You asked and your eyes met her green ones again. “Is this your house?” You spat angrily at her. She scrambled to grab her belongings and bolted out the door. You brought a hand up to your head, pressing your index finger, middle finger, and thumb to the temple of your forehead in an attempt to calm yourself. “You fucking jerk.” You breathed and scoffed. “I should’ve known better.” You laughed harshly at yourself as Grayson took a step forward. “Y/N, we didn’t even do anything-” He began, you cut him off with a slap. You ignored the stinging sensation building up on your now red palm as you raised an eyebrow at Grayson. “But you were going to?! That’s the point Grayson! I caught you. It’s done. We’re done. And I’m leaving.” You grabbed your purse from the ground and made your way towards the door. You shut it behind you and pressed your back up against it, tears streaming down your cheeks as you silently waited to see if Grayson would chase after you.
You peeked through the window and saw him standing there, a hand holding the cheek you had slapped as he stared down at the ground, the feeling of guilt and regret becoming too much for him to handle.
You clasped a hand to your mouth to muffle your cries as you watched him tuck the ring away into his pocket. Then, you ran.

You ran, faster than you had ever ran before. You didn’t think it was even possible for you to run that fast, but you were. Cold wind gushed onto your face and jolted your body as you raced down the familiar streets of LA. Your eyes filled with wet mascara, lips tinted with pink lip gloss. You couldn’t even tell where you were going since it was dark, but you didn’t care. You felt your phones vibrations against your skin, hundreds of texts from Grayson flooded your phone. You frustratedly threw it onto the ground in hopes of muffling the annoying sound.
You barely kept your eyes open when you heard someone honk from behind you. You turned around and squinted your eyes at the blinding lights of the car. You brought a hand up to block the rays of light from your eyes as you heard the car door open and close shut. “Fucking hell. Grayson leave me alone.” You huffed as a familiar shaped figure walked towards you. He came into the light and that’s when you realized it wasn’t Grayson. “Ethan.” You breathed. Suddenly your knees trembled with exhaustion and you collapsed onto the ground. Your body quivered and shook with hate, sadness, and fear. You clenched your fists as uncontrollable tears seeped through your eyelids and down your cheeks. That was it. You broke up with Grayson. No more goodnight kisses, no more cuddles after a long day, no more cooking breakfast together every Saturday morning and no more listening to his piano playing. All of it gone.
You felt as Ethan scooped you up with ease off the ground and into his arms. You pressed your face against his sweatshirt as you muffled your cried. Your tears stained his sweater but he didn’t care and neither did you.

When you were stable enough to open your eyes, you realized that you were in Ethan’s house. One of his blankets draped around your shoulders as the low sounds of the TV played in the background. You tiredly rubbed at your puffy red eyes and looked around. You saw Ethan humming quietly to himself as he finished swirling the spoon in a coffee mug. He set it down onto the sink before grasping the handle to both cups. He walked towards you and extended out an arm. “Hot cocoa?” He asked. You murmured a soft “Thank you.” As you took the cup from him.
You sipped the drink graciously and realized how cold and tired you really were. You shut your eyes at the feeling of warmth surging throughout your body. You mustered up a small smile which Ethan returned.
You felt as he rubbed your back lovingly, comforting you in such a way it made you want to cry. You were so thankful to be receiving this much kindness and you didn’t know how to thank him.
“You can stay as long as you want,”
Ethan’s voice was tired and raspy but also as kind and gentle as the sea breeze.
“How’d you find me?” You whispered and set the cup down onto his coffee table. Ethan removed his hand from your back and sat up. “Gray told me that you ran away. He also told me why you ran away. I’m so sorry.” Ethan muttered and looked up as a sob escaped your lips. “He’s an idiot. Shhh, Y/N, c'mere.” Ethan outstretched his arms and you didn’t hesitate to fall right into them. You sobbed quietly into his chest as he caressed your hair softly. “It’s late. You should go to bed.” Ethan whispered and you nodded. You sat up and rubbed your eyes lazily. With a sigh you got off the couch and headed for the door, you hand made contact with the door knob before Ethan’s voice made you pull away. “Where are you going? I told you, you could stay here.” He chuckled softly and stood up. “Oh.” You mumbled and looked towards the couch. “My bed.” He explained and you nodded. He led you over to his bedroom and gave you a pair of his sweatpants and a shirt to change into. You thanked him and he left the room. You sighed and grabbed the hems of your t-shirt, pulling it up and off your head as you reminisced on all the good times you and Grayson had. You mentally scolded yourself for thinking about him as you got rid of your jeans. “Y/N, I was wonderin-” Ethan suddenly opened the door as you were bending down to grab the pair of sweats on the ground. Your ass just dangling in the air, panties and all as your face flushed a dark shade of pink. “Oh shit- sorry!” Ethan quickly shut the door and you groaned and picked up the sweats from the ground. You tugged it on and opened the door. Ethan walked in, still looking a bit flustered from what just happened. “It’s honestly fine. You’ve seen me in a bikini before right? It’s the same thing.” You plastered on a smile as Ethan let out a puff of air. “Oh, good. I thought it was going to be so awkward for the rest of the night. I’m so glad your cool about it.” You laughed softly as Ethan brought up a hand to wipe away the small layer of sweat forming on his forehead. “It’s kind of hot isn’t it? I’m going to turn on the air conditioner-”
“What?” You gaped. “No, it’s freaking freezing.” You stood in front of the air conditioner and crossed your arms. Ethan raised an eyebrow in amusement and mimicked your movements. “It’s hot Y/N. I’m sweating.” Ethan said and you looked down at what he was wearing. “Because you have a sweatshirt on.” You pointed out with a giggle. Ethan grabbed the hems of his sweater and with one swift movement he was shirtless. He smirked down at you and you gulped, struggling to keep your eyes from traveling south. “Better?” You mumbled. “Hmm..I’m still pretty hot Y/N.” you rolled your eyes and squealed when he lifted you up and tossed you onto his bed. He turned on the A.C, groaning out in pleasure as the cool air hit his face. “Seriously Ethan?” You scoffed and sat up. “I’m going to wake up as an ice block.” You whined and rubbed your hands up and down your body to try and build up some warmth. “Not if I sleep with you.” Ethan said which made your eyes widen. “Crap, that came out wrong. Uh- I meant not if I like, sleep next you. Cause, you know? Body heat and stuff like that? My body heat will-”
“I get it.” You cut him off with a laugh and scooted towards the end of the bed. Ethan smiled, the pink that tinted his cheeks fading away as he ran a hand through his hair. “Do you still have my extra toothbrush here?” You asked him. He smiled and nodded, leading you towards his bathroom. You thanked him and grabbed it, applying toothpaste to your brush as he just stood their behind you awkwardly. “Um..you can leave now.” You forced out a laugh as you looked at Ethan through the mirror. “I’m waiting to brush my teeth.” He explained and you rolled your eyes. “Just do it now.” Ethan shrugged and reached to grab his brush.

You both brushed your teeth in silence, the only sounds being heard were the bristles of the tooth brush being rubbed against your teeth. You leaned down and spit out the toothpaste, turning the sink on to wash your mouth out. Once you were done you turned to look at Ethan. He looked at you, cheeks puffed out as a bit if toothpaste dribbled out of the corners of his mouth, dripping down his chin. “Don’t.” You laughed and backed away. Ethan smirked and threatened to spit at you. “No!” You exclaimed as the toothpaste made contact with your shoulder. You reached for the toothpaste and squirted it at him with all your might. “Y/N!” He exclaimed and groaned. You giggled but he reached for a cup, filling it to the brim with water. “Ethan, wait no! Ethan-” he tossed the water at you, soaking your white t-shirt. You lunged forward but slipped on the water, “Oh shit! Y/N!” Ethan grabbed your ankle to hold you up as you pressed your palm against the wall. You both laughed at the position you were in and Ethan helped you stand up straight. “Thanks.” You sighed and smiled at him. “No problem, it was kind of my fault anyways.” He smiled and you laughed. Suddenly you caught his eyes wandering towards your chest. He brought a hand up to cover his eyes and you looked down. “Crap!” You muttered once you realized your black bra was completely see-through in your soaking shirt. “It’s okay, just grab another shirt from my draws.” Ethan said. You nodded and walked out if the bathroom, shuffling through his drawers. You found a dark navy blue V-neck and threw it on. You returned to the bathroom and tapped Ethan’s shoulder. “You can look now.”
“Oh good.” He chuckled as you blushed. “I’m going to clean this up, don’t fall again.” He instructed you. “No promises.” You giggled.
He left the bathroom and you followed, but not without stumbling a bit. He returned with a mop, you sat on his bed and watched as he cleaned up the mess you two had made. “Why are you looking at me like that?” Ethan questioned you. You felt your heart beat quicken and your throat dry up. “What? I’m just watching you clean.” You stammered and Ethan laughed, “Sure Y/N.” he said smugly and crawled into bed besides you. “I was.” You pouted as he threw the covers over you both. “Mmhmm, I know.” He hummed which made you groan. “Whatever. Goodnight Ethan.”
“Night Y/N.”

You awoke to the sounds of Ethan’s light snores in the shell of your ear, and the morning light trickling in through the blinds. You soaked in the warmth of the covers and Ethan’s arms wrapped around you, before letting yours eyes see the sun’s rays. You covered them with your hand since it was so bright and groaned softly.
Slowly and reluctantly, You uncovered your face once again. You blinked, closed your eyes, and blinked again. You rubbed your knuckles onto your eyes as you tried your best to fight off a yawn.
To no use, the yawn escaped your lips. Your eyes fluttered shut once again but you opened them as Ethan’s snores grew louder. You shoved him gently, “Ethan.” You whispered. “E.” You pushed him again and he didn’t even budge. “Eth.” You pushed him once more. Nothing.
Ethan’s eyes shot open and you laughed. “Kink?” You asked with a small smirk. “W-whaa?” He asked still adjusting to the brightness in the room, his voice raspy and deep which did things to you, things it shouldn’t have. “Oh forget it.” Ethan unraveled his arms from around your waist and you sat up watching as he rubbed the tiredness from his eyes. He yawned and looked up at you as you stared out of his bedroom window. You felt his eyes on you so you cleared your throat. “Why are you looking at me like that?” You mocked him from earlier and smiled to yourself. “I like when you look at me like that.” You added when he didn’t respond. “Why?” He asked you. “Because, it’s the same look Grayson gave me when he told me he loved me.”

“What?” Ethan asked and sat up as well. You turned to look at him, and reached to crook a strand of hair behind your ear. “You like me.” You pointed out.
“What? I don’t like you Y/N.” Ethan scoffed and ran a hand through his wavy hair as you watched him with intent.
“Lie to me again, Ethan.” You whispered and looked straight ahead. He turned around and his eyes flickered from your lips to your eyes. “I don’t have feelings for you, Y/N.”

No words were said, your lips were on his. He kissed you and the world fell away. It was slow and soft, comforting in ways that words would never be. His hand rested below your ear, his thumb caressing your cheek as your lips melded together. You ran your fingers down his spine, pulling him closer until there was no space left between you two and you could feel the beating of his heart against your chest. Unexpectedly, his hand drifted to your hip. It settled there and pulled you even closer. You inhaled sharply. You were against his warm chest, chiseled to perfection.

Must he be so perfect?

You pressed your bare palm against it, intending to push him away, but instead you left it there. Ethan began nuzzling your neck with delicate kisses. So soft and sweet. You urged yourself to push him away but you couldn’t. A soft moan left your lips and Ethan suddenly pulled away. “This is wrong.” You breathed as Ethan traced your jaw lovingly. “I dated your brother. I just broke up with him.”
“It’s not wrong if we both like eachother Y/N.” Ethan said as his bright eyes met your own. “Do you like me Y/N?” He whispered. “No.” You muttered as his hand trailed down your neck to push your hair to the side. He leaned in and softly nipped at your earlobe. “Lie to me again.” His breath was hot against your ear, and you shuddered. “I don’t like you Ethan.”
