Halloween. One of your favorite holidays of the year, and you were at a loss. You had no idea what to dress up as and no idea what to do. You were far to old for trick-or-treating and couldn't throw a party of your own in the small apartment you lived in. You groaned and plopped down on the couch to sulk. A little light brought your attention to the phone on the table next to your head.
You picked it up and dialed the number of one person who might have a solution.
"Hey Bella, it's (name) what are you doing for Halloween?"
"I was just going to stay at home. It's strange that both you and Tim would be antsy about Halloween, he was even willing to interact with other people this year and you know how much he dislikes other people."
You blushed at the mention of Bella's hot brother Tim, true he wasn't one to socialize or talk to other people but you sure did like him. He seemed more shy then mean and he had the cutest pet bunny. When they has first moved here and you became friends with Bella he had ignored you, but he had slowly come to call you his friend as well. That was something precious to you.
"Really? then maybe we should have a Halloween party? I can't do it here because my landlord will kill me...could we do it at your place?"
"Sure, can you make the invites? I'll have Tim help me decorate and cook."
Little known fact, Tim was an amazing cook.
*Skip to Halloween night*
You finished the last touches on your costume and headed out the door. Everything had fallen into place quickly and easily, most of the people you knew would be there, and best of all Tim would be there. The house of the siblings was large and Victorian, perfect for a Halloween party.
The lights in the house were purple and pulsating, the music was loud and thumping. You parked your car and walked up to the door where a mummy was greeting people. You waved to Alfred who was under the toilet paper and walked into the pounding music. A cup of red liquid was handed to you and you took a tentative sip.
Fruit punch. You continued to sip as you looked for Tim. Others greeted you and you talked briefly but soon moved on. A tap on the shoulder brought your attention to Bella who was standing behind you dressed as Red Riding Hood. You smiled at her choice of costume.
"Great job Bell, how long did it take you?"
"Oh not long, Tim did most of it"
"Where is your brother?"
"You know, i'm not sure. Everyone showed up and he disappeared."
"Well i'll go look for him."
"Okay see you later."
Bella walked off and greeted Spain and Romano. You walked toward the back of the house where some couples were kissing in the dark. Jealously crept up your throat but you swallowed it down. You tried not to focus on you desire for a boyfriend and concentrated on finding Tim. A small trail of smoke led you to the balcony where Tim was standing and rubbing his temples. A cigar lolled out of his mouth in a very attractive way that drew your eyes to his lips.
"Hey Tim, are you not feeling well?"
"It's just all the people, it makes me uncomfortable."
"i thought the party was your idea."
"Well I knew you didn't have anything to do on Halloween, so I figured a party would be fun."
"You did it for me?"
You were astonished, what did this mean. He scratched his wolf ears nervously and took a pull on his cigar. You wrinkled you nose.
"Those are so bad for you, you know."
He looked to you and dropped the cigar on the ground and rubbed it under his shoe. He nodded and took out a strip of mint gum and chewed on it vigorously.
"You right, but I find it calming. I've been told no one wants to kiss an ashtray." He looked towards the woods sadly.
"Oh? Is there anyone you want to kiss? I bet its nothing like an ashtray."
He stopped chewing and looked to you. He took a few steps closer and placed his pawed hands on your hips and pulled you close as he brought his face down to your level.
"There is this one girl that i've wanted to kiss for a while now, but i'm not sure if she would be okay with it."
"Oh I don't see how any gril wouldn't want to kiss a man like you."
"Then I guess I should give it a try."
His face was near centimeters away and you were already breathing heavily. He soon brought his smooth lips to yours and you kissed back. You ran your hands over his wolf ears and through his strangely styled hair. The kiss was long and sweet. You gazed into his eyes and kissed his nose.
"I love you, and thanks for the party."
"I love you too (name). Now lets try that party thing again. I think I hear Thriller."
You smiled as he grabbed your hand and the two of you walked back into the dancing crowd together.
