“I look like an idiot,” Nino complained.
“You look so cute!” Alya squealed.
Nino was wearing a Toy Story Woody outfit, complete with cowboy boots, red handkerchief, and giant cowboy hat. He had never, in his entire life, worn boots with heels. And the hat pushed his glasses uncomfortably into his face. He felt stupid.
“Oh, come on! You said I could pick the outfit!” Alya said. “And I already bought my Jessie outfit!”
Nino sighed, taking the hat off. “I was totally trusting you to pick a good outfit, but this is way overboard. Why do we even have to match anyway?”
“We told Adrien and Marinette we would each do a couples costume for Halloween,” she reminded him. The school was throwing a Halloween dance, and they had planned on a double date. “And then we agreed on a Disney theme.”
“This barely counts as Disney. It’s technically a Pixar movie,” Nino pointed out. “And couldn’t you have chosen a different Disney couple?”
“Like, I dunno, any of them?”
“Pleeease?” Alya pouted. “I’ll spend all day tomorrow doing anything you want!”
Nino put his head in his hand. He was so going to get her back for this.
The next week, Alya and Nino were waiting outside on the school steps for their friends. Nino kept adjusting his handkerchief and glasses. Alya looked adorable in her Jessie outfit. She had ditched her glasses in favor of contacts, so she wasn’t having the same troubles.
Marinette and Adrien turned the corner, causing Alya and Nino to gasp. Marinette was wearing a stunning Snow White dress. Her short hair was free of its pigtails, and a red bow had taken their place. Next to her, Adrien was wearing a Prince Charming outfit. He even had a red cloak hanging off his shoulders. They both looked ridiculously adorable.
“See?” Nino cried, pointing at them. “Why couldn’t you choose a princess and a prince outfit?”
Alya ignored him, running down the steps to meet Marinette. They squealed and fawned over each other’s costumes while Nino clumped down awkwardly in his boots.
“You look like you drew the short end of the stick,” Adrien said.
“No kidding.” Nino adjusted his glasses again. “You’re lucky you’re with Marinette. She chose an awesome costume for you.”
Adrien scratched the back of his head. “Actually, she wanted me to pick the costume.”
Nino’s mouth fell open. “Really, dude?”
Alya suddenly pulled Nino’s arm. “Come on, let’s go dance!”
Nino looked at Adrien, mouthing, “Help!” as he was dragged up the steps and onto the dance floor.
But while Nino
tripped over his shoes, and stepped on Alya’s feet, and felt stupid and
ridiculous, he was doing all of this with her. He would have never subjected
himself to such embarrassment with anyone else, and that’s when he knew he
would someday ask this girl to marry him.
This one ended up being one of my favorites so far! I had a ton of fun writing it, so I hope you have a ton of fun reading it, anon! Also, I had to feature Adrinette because I imagined them in their costumes and I couldn’t let it go, lol.
