We went to a place called, 24 Hour Designerz. They had everything we needed, in Aiden's words. We spent an hour finding different types of outfits. He bought me dresses, pants, shirts, underwear, bras, shoes and ironically, swimwear.
I had multiple bags and so did Aiden. We quickly took them back to my abandoned building.
"Tomorrow, I'll rent out an apartment for you to stay in at night so you don't have two roam through the night. I need my own place anyway so will get a two bedroom so you have a place to put your stuff." Aiden tells me.
I look up at him in disbelief. "No. This place is just fine. You bought this stuff for me and in grateful but, I won't be living at an apartment because the next morning, I'll be a mermaid."
He shook his head but said nothing else about it. Thankfully. He smiled as he nodded toward the bags.
"Grab a dress and some underwear and let's go." He commands.
I do as he says, along with a pair of heels he insisted I get, and follow him. He walks ahead as he pulls out his phone. I don't hear the conversation but it wasn't long before he puts it back in his pocket.
Ten minutes later, we arrive at a huge house. It was the first house I've seen other then the abandoned place I stay at.
He opens the door and pulls me up the stairs. After knocking on a door that has a block of wood with 'Alex' printed on it.
He opens the door and his eyes immediately land on me. His eyes trail my body before raising an eyebrow at Aiden.
"Who is this?" He asks Aiden in confusion.
"Bambina! Hi! I haven't seen you in so long!" A girl, who is about an inch taller then me, pulls me into a hug. "Names Kelsie. Just play along." She pulls away. "Alex, this is my friend Bambina. She's visiting from Florida. I asked Aiden to pick her up from the airport."
I look up at Aiden before looking back at Alex with a smile.
"Pleasure to meet you." I say, holding out my hand for him to shake.
After he shakes it, she grabs my hand and pulls me to the bathroom.
"We're getting ready for the party, babe!" She yells out before shutting the door.
She digs through the drawers until she finds what she's looking for.
"Aiden asked for my help but, said I couldn't ask questions. So, I won't. All I know is that you ran away from home." She informs my unasked question.
She plugs the cord into the wall and grabs a hairbush. After running it through my hair until there wasn't any tangles and knots, she takes the device and runs it through my hair. Every time she let go of a piece of my hair, it would feel hot on my skin. Once she was finished, my normally curly hair was straight. It was different but I loved it.
"You have really pretty hair. I wish mine was as long as yours." She tells me. "I'll put a little bit of makeup on you before we get dressed."
She had me hold still, telling me to close my eyes or look up or part my lips. She didn't allow me to look at myself until she was finished.
"Okay, I'll be right back. I have to get my outfit. Get dressed." She says as she walks out of the bathroom.
I strip out of my outfit and pull the dress over my head. It was a long sleeved, off the shoulder, black dress. The skirt was a dark grey with black lace on the bottom of the dress. I slip on my black suede platform lace heels.
It made me a few inches taller then I normally am. I may be an inch or two shorter than Aiden is with these on.
The door opens and Kelsie's eyes check out my outfit. She nods in approval before slipping into a black laced dress. After slipping on her black stilletos, she opens the back door.
She knocks twice before opening the door to her boyfriends room. Aiden looks up and stands quickly as I walk in. His eyes check out my figure and I feel my face heat up in embarrassment. He smirks before winking at me.
"Aiden, could you take care of Bambina tonight?" Kelsie asks, clearly part of the plan. Aiden agrees of course.
I bite my lip. Its been a few hours since I came out of the water. I wasn't outside so I couldn't tell if I had to leave suddenly. Aiden notices my discomfort and squeezed my hand.
"Don't worry. It's only ten. You still have seven more hours before you need to be back." He smiles.
I nod and we walk out the door together, followed by Kelsie and Alex. When we get outside, Aiden leads me to a black car.
Kelsie and Alex get in the front and Aiden and I slide into the back. When Kelsie blasts the radio, Aiden uses that moment to lean close to my ear.
"You look really beautiful." He whispers, his hot breath leaves shivers running down my spine. I blush deeply and look out the window. Luckily he can't see me through the darkness of the car.
It wasn't long before we started hearing loud music,drowning out the music Kelsie was playing. She turned the radio off and smiled brightly.
"We're here!" Kelsie squeals as Alex parks the car.
Aiden gets out and I stay where I'm at. I take a few deep breaths,trying to contain my fear. I'm about to be around so many people I don't know. Exactly what I wanted to keep from doing.
Aiden opens the door and his smile drops. "Hey, it'll be okay. I promised to protect you. I always keep my promises."
I smile up at him with a nod. Okay, I'm ready.
Oh, my gosh! Sorry I haven't updated as fast as usual! I've had a pretty rough week.
First, I have to move so I've been house hunting like crazy.
Then, my sister had her baby (which isn't rough but she had to have a c-section) baby was completely healthy and she's so beautiful!
And then, the worst part. The reason I just had to write and get out of my own head..
My dad died yesterday morning. I can't stop thinking about it so,I needed to think about something else.
I tried my very best to save him until the ambulance got to my house but, there wasn't anymore I could do. He died of a massive heart attack. My boyfriend had to do CPR on him and only brought him back for a minute but, it didn't last before I lost his pulse completely. The EMTs and the doctors worked on him for two hours before pronouncing him dead.
Thank you guys for sticking to this story. It'll get better!
Love you, Humans!
