Koi wasn't one to rush beauty, but damn. He'd been sitting on that plush ass couch for nearly twenty minutes and Devyn had yet to emerge from her bedroom, dressed and ready to go. Not like he minded the wait. Normally, he would've been cool with waiting for her as he probably would've been in her room, rolling a fatty, watching her straighten her hair. That night was a game changer though as he was waiting, out in the living room, to take her on a...date. Yeah, he said it. DATE. He'd resigned to calling it one after he found himself on his damn knees in the hallway at KPA in front of at least six of his fellow students, begging his best friend to accompany him to his mother's gala. She'd said yes and there were...here now. Him, waiting for her after being invited in by her Aunt Athena (whom he'd FINALLY formerly met). And her, turning herself into actual GOLD, for as long as she was taking.

Letting out a quiet sigh, he nervously tapped St. Laurents against the corner of the coffee table, the sound and the movement giving him a little hint of peace considering he was sure he was sweating out the pits of the crazy expensive tuxedo shirt his mom had let him pair with his suit. Shit was banging if he had to say so himself. He had to commend his moms. She'd given him a little bit of swag that night. And after retying his bow tie for the fiftieth time, she'd let him take the chauffeured car to Devyn's and had promised that she'd make a good impression when they pulled up at the Astor. Not that he thought his mother wouldn't. Her life was about impressions, especially that night. That night was the pentacle of impression making as anyone with expendable cash was coming through to put in a tax deduction for the one his mother was selling. But he didn't mind watching his Moms work. At least he could see the hard work that she put into Kidd's Kids. At least he got to feel like there was a REAL reason why she spent so much time away from he and Eri. But the fun thing about tonight? He didn't have to worry about putting on facades or playing "Partridge Family". Devyn was the distraction...and a blessed one at that. She was going to make his night. He was sure of it.

Checking his watch again, he turned his head, leaning over the back of the couch as he tried to glance at Devyn's door. Still shut. And her and her Auntie still behind it. They were running late...he just...nerves. Lots of them. Damn. Nerves about the night. About the...date. About the suit. About the...wait, was her door opening?





you're so brave.
stonecold crazy for lovin' me. & i'm amazed.

FUCK! She couldn’t get her hair to curl the way she wanted to and it seemed like no matter how many different shades she tried on her lipstick just didn’t...work. Ughhh! She didn’t want to do this. She couldn’t! And about an hour ago she had decided not to. A decision Athena would not allow. Devyn had to give it to her her aunt was a crafty one. She’d tricked Devyn into getting ready really, asking her to just put on the dress and see how she felt...then of course she couldn’t see the dress without the shoes and accessories. It’s not a complete outfit, bug! Show me! By the time she was finished Devyn was dressed with nothing left to do but her hair and make-up. She was going and her aunt was making damn sure of it. So here she sat, shuffling through lipsticks while Athena worked some kind of black magic on her hair

“None of them work, Athena,” she frowned for the hundredth time that night as nothing seemed right to her and for the hundredth time that night Athena supplied an uninterested ‘relax’ before putting down the flat iron and picking up one of the MAC tupes and giving it to her.

“Stop worrying, baby. You’re beautiful...Like your momma, bug...” Devyn stopped primping to really look at her aunt for the first time since she’d come in to help her get ready. She didn’t know when but Athena had started to cry. No. NO. Devyn would not do this with her right now, her make-up had taken too long! She stood up, wrapping some of the only real family she had left in a hug. She held her until Athena pulled away, speaking, “You’re going to have so much fun tonight, but not if you don’t get out of this room.” She smiled, leading Devyn to her door before opening it. Guess it was time...Dev exited her room just as unsure about this as when she’d told Koi that she would go.

But all of those nerves seemed to melt away when she saw him. He’d been watching the door and he stood as soon as she stepped out. He looked...damn. The most formal she’d ever seen Koi was his school uniform and he was cute in that. Koi in a suit was...damn. She hadn’t noticed before, but she’d kinda stopped to stare, her bottom lip catching as she tried to hide the lust she was sure was apparent in her eyes. She moved the rest of the way into the living room, stopping in front of him before she spoke.

“Kid...hey.”

Well damn. It was crazy how you could see someone everyday, all day...and still be completely blown away by them. Devyn looked...there weren't words. And as Koi sat there on that couch for a split second, clearly forgetting himself, he realized how true that sentiment was. He was frozen, leaned over the back of the couch, his mouth falling open in temporary shock. That thought about Devyn turning herself into actual gold? She succeeded. From that bomb ass dress to the way her hair tumbled over her shoulder...to those cherry red lips. She was pure, fucking gold. Clearing his throat, he seemed to melt as she stepped out of the door way, the short train of the masterpiece she was wearing trailing behind her. He stood, a slight smirk on his face, as she rounded the couch, her signature greeting on her smiling red lips.

"Sup, Hips..." He answered, just softly enough that her aunt, who was leaving her bedroom, couldn't hear. That moment was just for them. He could barely take his eyes from her, staring at her for an awkward second before he remembered himself and leaned forward, wrapping his arms around her waist in a comfortable hug. He didn't hold on for long as Athena was hovering in the room, smiling at her with pride that went way deeper than just that of an "aunt". He was sure his eyes were saying more than "homie", too. Because that night, Devyn got her wish. There was no way that he could call this an "outing" or "hanging out". Not with her looking like that...in that dress.

"You..." he paused, pulling out of their embrace. "...look beautiful." He couldn't help the way he looked at her in front of her aunt. He was having a hard time keeping his eyes off of her in the first place! But he tried his best to keep sex out of his eyes as...he would say it, it'd been awhile since he and Devyn had been together that way, the moment that neither of them wanted to recall being the last time. They'd kept it clean. A kiss here, a hug there. He gave her her space. But tonight...he wasn't sure if he could keep up that front. Beauty was quickly turning into lust as she stood before him, his brain trying way too hard to keep his thoughts from showing on his face in front of her family.

"Oh! Uh..." Good. He had something to distract him as he turned around and picked up the bouquet from the couch. They were a nice touch. And no matter how much the word still made his nerves jump, if it was his first REAL date, he was going to do it in style.

"These...are for you."

Sup, Hips...See. There was nothing for her to be nervous about. He was still Koi, her familiar nickname leaving his lips as they greeted one another. She could do this. She could go out with her bestie and not make it a thing...although she kind of already had made it a thing as she’d had him beg for her company. In her defense, she never meant for that to happen, but the point remained. The two of them could do this night together. She wanted to do this night with him. Looking at him, all perfect in a suit, looking at her with that...look...She was glad her aunt had talked her into it.

Devyn smiled as he leaned in for a hug, her arms easily falling around his neck. It was quick and she could guess why as she could feel Athena watching the two of them from the hallway. You look beautiful. Wow. Devyn bit at her lip nervously, her eyes falling from his as her cheeks reddened. She’d never gotten that from him. Eri’d told her he said she was pretty once and he’d said it sarcastically when he’d asked her to this thing, but she’d never heard him legit call her beautiful. Badd, sure. Sexy, yes. Never beautiful. Not until tonight...

“Thanks, Koi-,” she looked back up at him, purposely putting the lust back in her stare as she complimented him back, “You’re quite dapper yourself, boo.” The two of them took a minute to kind of stare at one another as they melted into the world they always created for themselves when they were together. Her aunt wasn’t there and it was just the two of them. Young and completely content in one another. And...giving gifts. Devyn came back to reality as Koi spoke, remembering...flowers. The kid brought her flowers. Her smile grew super wide as she took them from him, putting them to her nose and breathing in the scent.

“I love them, kid, thanks...” She was so stuck. The smile on her face a permanent fixture as she just kept looking at him. It was like she was frozen in place, but she was fine with it. She was with him and she was perfectly content with everything.

“I should take those-,” it was her aunt’s turn to snap her out of her thoughts. “And put them in water. And you two should get going.”

Roses, awkward silences, lingering stares. Koi guessed that this was what first dates were supposed to feel like. And for a potential "first", he wasn't exactly hating the way it was starting off. Even though he was standing in front of her in a suit and she stood in front of him, dolled up to the nines, they were still them. Nothing changed the fact that they were still "Koi and Dev". And Koi kind of...got it. A date didn't alter who they were because they would always be who they were. Just like labels. Nothing described or altered who Devyn was to him because she was beyond words...and this "date" wouldn't change it. Matter of fact, Koi only saw the evening they were going to have making things between them better. They'd had enough hard times to bring them closer, make their friendship stronger. It was time for something good.

Koi's grin didn't falter through her compliments and her thanks when he handed her the flowers that his mother couldn't stop cheesing about when he'd bought them. It was kind of surreal how much he smiled because...she was happy. Even though he'd done this gala thing a thousand times, the night made him ten times more stoked because he could see the building, nervous excitement sparkling in Devyn's eyes. He could feel it in the way she looked at him over the roses he'd brought her, her smile growing as she took in the fragrance. This was kind of real for her. That in the time that they'd spent arguing and fussing about the unimportant shit, this was what really mattered. Her happiness and him causing it.

I should take those. Her aunt's voice made him turn around, a small smile on his face as she took the roses from Devyn's hands, telling them that they needed to be on their way, headed towards the gala. Koi checked his watch again, she was right.

"Yeah, we should get going." He agreed, his hand reaching out to Athena, shaking it. "It was nice meeting you..." He left the end of the sentence trailing. Mostly because he didn't know what else to say...and he didn't want to make any promises about Devyn's time of return either. He wasn't so sure, but he was thinking that tonight? They'd play that tiny detail by ear...
