“Y/N, come shopping with me tomorrow. I need to get some new clothes and expert opinions,” Momo said as she approached you on the class break.
“Ok,” you replied, “I don’t know if I have expert opinions though.”
“I’d appreciate your help anyway. Can I pick some clothes out for you too?” she asked with her hands clasped together under her chin, eyes sparkling with excitement.
“Yeah, ok,” you replied with a shrug.
“Oh my gosh this is going to be so much fun,” she said happily, “I will see you tomorrow. I’ll text you.”
“Ok cool.” You watched her walk away.
“Hanging out with Momo?! Yes please, how did I get so lucky?”
That night, you and Momo texted back and forth a bit, planning where you would meet and what shops you’d go to first.
“I’m really looking forward to this, we’ve never hung out just you and I together ,” she texted.
“Yeah,” you replied, “it’s gonna be cool.”
She sent you one last text then you turned in for the night.
The next morning you were up early trying to figure out what to wear but then settled on wearing something comfy because you knew you would be in and out of clothes all day.
“This’ll do,” you thought, looking down at your oversized hoodie, comfy jeans and vans.
You got your other things together then left the house, heading to the closest station to catch the train to the shopping center.
“Hi, Y/N,” Momo greeted you brightly. She was wearing a yellow sundress with white flowers on it and she just looked radiant… well, she always looked well put together but today she just seemed that extra bit amazing and you looked down hurriedly so that it wouldn’t seem like you were staring.
“Hey,” you greeted the floor.
“Ready to do some shopping?”
“Yeah,” you replied, nodded and glancing up at her before looking back down again.
“Ok, let’s go!” she said brightly.
You weren’t sure if she had picked up on your nervousness and was opting to ignore it, or if she hasn’t picked up on it at all, but either way you were grateful that she hadn’t pointed it out or anything.
She happily led you to the first shop that she had written down on the list and entered.
It was an expensive shop. Top line. And you tried not to grimace when you thought about what the prices would be like in such a store.
Unsurprisingly, Momo happily walked in like she owned the place and was immediately drawn to a mint green dress hanging on the rack near the front of the shop. Above the rack it had ‘new arrivals’ sign and you watched as Momo pulled the dress out from among the others to take a better look at it and check the price.
“This is cute,” she said in awe, holding it up and checking how the fabric fell, “what do you think, Y/N?”
“It would look good on you,” you replied, pretending to be looking at some of the other items on the rack closest to you.
“And it’s only $300!” she said with an excited smile, “I’m going to try it on!”
You nearly fell head first into the clothes and looked at her in surprise.
“Mmhmm,” she hummed, “a bargain.”
“Are you going to try anything on? They have a range of different clothes, even suits! I’d love to see you in a suit.”
“Oh, I don’t really, uh… need a suit…”
“It wouldn’t be to buy… but just to try one on. I’ll put a suit on too! Ive always wanted to try one,” she said with a giggle.
You gave her a small smile and nodded a little. “Yeah ok, let’s try a suit on.”
Momo giggled and took the mint green dress with her as she then made her way up to the lady at the counter.
“Good morning, madam,” she greeted politely, “my friend and I would like to try on a few of your suits. If you wouldn’t mind.”
“Of course!” The lady behind the counter said, stepping out from behind the bench and walking over to the rack of various styles of suit, “now… what style were you after?”
You stood quietly and a little awkwardly, listening to Momo and the shop assistant chatting about different suit cuts then the lady pulled a few off the rack and handed them to Momo to try.
“Here,” Momo said to you, handing one of the suits across for you to take, “try this one on while I try this green dress on and then I’ll put a suit on as well.”
You took the suit from her and nodded. “Ok, sure.”
She thanked the shop assistant then headed for the change rooms with you trailing along behind her.
“Here.” She pushed one of the change room doors open and letting you in, then walked into the next one to change herself.
You hung the suit up on the rank and looked at it as you got undressed then put it on.
It was a surprisingly good fit and you checked yourself out in the mirror and pulled a ‘not bad’ facial expression as you turned this way and that, looking at your reflection.
“You ready, Y/N?” Momo asked from outside your door and you heard her exit her change room.
“Yeah,” you replied, giving yourself one last look before unlocking your change room door and stepping out.
Momo looked breathtaking in the mint green dress and the way it fell, made her already beautiful figure, even more flawless.
“Wow, that dress really suits you,” you said softly, trying not to stare.
When your eyes finally met hers, you paused. She was blushing from ear to ear, mouth opened slightly.
“Y/N! You look amazing!”
You looked into the mirror that was on the far wall of the change room area and bit back a smile. You had to admit. You did look pretty frickin’ good.
“It fits nicely,” you said to Momo, who was still staring at you, “what?” You chuckled nervously.
“I’m sorry, but I’m just so used to seeing you in oversized clothes or school uniform that seeing you in this is … amazing.”
“Thanks,” you whispered a little awkwardly.
“Can we take a picture together?” she asked, “it looks like we’re about to go to the prom!”
You gave a small smile. “Yeah. Sure. Let’s take a picture.”
She quickly ducked back into her change room and got her phone from her bag then came out and held the phone up to take a selfie with you.
You gave the camera a smile and she grinned up big then took the photo and checked the picture.
“Oh, I like that one!”
“Same,” you said, looking at it as well, “send it to me?”
She did, and then she went back to change into her suit while you waited. It wasn’t long before she stepped out again and your jaw nearly dropped to the floor. She looked amazing… again.
“Is there anything this girl CAN’T wear?” you thought, respectfully looking her up and down.
“What do you think?” she asked, turning slowly so you could see all angles.
“Yeah… it’s amazing,” you said.
“Let’s take another selfie,” she said excitedly.
You nodded and stepped in beside her as she took the next photo.
After that, you and Momo travelled around to different shops, trying on things and just having a nice time together and before you knew it it was 5pm and time to go back home.
“Are you happy with what you bought?” Momo asked you as you both headed for the shopping center doors.
You nodded and looked down at the bag you were carrying. “What about you?”
Momo had 8 bags slung over one arm, happily and easily carrying them as you both headed out and off down the street to the station.
“Very happy,” she replied with a smile.
As you got a little way down the street she stopped you and handed you a bag. “Here. Take this. You looked so good in it I just had to buy it for you.”
“What is it?” you asked, taking the bag and looking in. It was the suit you had tried on earlier. “Oh! Momo, I can’t take this!”
“Yes you can,” she replied sternly, “this is my gift to you.”
“No. It was so expensive!”
“It wasn’t. Now, please accept it and use it for the prom at the end of this year.”
“No buts! This is from me to you,” she said with a soft smile, “thank you for coming with me today. I had a lot of fun.”
“So did I,” you said, returning her soft smile, “thank you for this, Momo. I’ll be sure to wear it.”
“I look forward to seeing you in it again,” she said with a big smile.
