“I find it hard to believe that you ever swore, mum.” You said with a laugh.
“Oh, not me, your father.” She replied, “he had a foul mouth sometimes.”
“Did I pick up any swear words from him?” You asked.
“Yes you did.” She said with a laugh, “you were around 3 years of age, carrying a packet of chip, and you accidentally dropped them and just stood there, staring down at them for the longest time, before you suddenly said ‘well S-H-I-T.'” She said, spelling out the swear word so Hiyoko wouldn’t copy it again.
You burst out laughing.
“Well I’m glad he’s gone now because a) he won’t be able to manipulate us anymore and b) I won’t pick up any more swear words from him.” You said playfully.
“Ah,” she replied with a smile, “I don’t regret anything. My life has been much better without him in it but had I not been put in the mental respite hospital I would never have met Rei.”
“That’s true I guess.” You replied with a smile, “and in a way he helped me meet Hawks and now we’re together.”
“Oh speaking of together.” Your mum said as she stood up with Hiyoko on her hip. “How are the wedding plans going?”
“Really good!” You replied happily, “we’re all set, Norman is going to be the flower boy pup and we’re getting Hiyoko to lead him down the aisle.”
“Oh how precious.” Your mum gushed, “I can’t wait for the wedding day!”
“Same!” You replied happily, “won’t be long now! Only a few months to go.”
“Then you can fall pregnant on the honeymoon and give me another grandchild!” Your mum said excitedly.
“MUM!” You gasped, “no, oh my god, that’s so embarrassing!”
“Sorry did I hear an order for another grandchild?” Hawks asked as he walked into the lounge from the study where he was finishing off paperwork. “I’m sure I could help with that requ-.”
“NO! THANK YOU! OH GOD THIS IS EMBARRASSING!!!” You wailed, covering your face with your hands.
Your mum and Hawks chuckled as he walked over and wrapped you in a hug.
“I’m joking baby, I’m joking.” He chuckled.
The months kept on rolling by and before you knew it it was wedding day!
“Oh gosh I’m so nervous.” You said to Brian as opened his front door to you.
“Come on in~.” He sang excitedly as he stepped back to let you through then turned and strutted down the hall to the kitchen. “Ok, so, I’ve got tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and SO many other options, I have everything your little heart desires.” He said excitedly as he flitted around the room.
“I’m so nervous I can’t drink anything right now.” You said softly as you wrapped your arms around your middle.
“Awww, Honey-bunny, it’s just Hawks! And you’re already married!” Brian said with a reassuring smile.
“I know, but it’s the thought of all the other people standing there looking at me as I walk down the aisle that’s making me anxious.” You replied with a grimace.
“Baby, but you know everyone there!” Brian said with an excited chuckle, “don’t worry, I’ll be there every step of the way.” He added as he flitted over and took your hand in his, “ok now come with me, let me make your outfit on you so it’s a tailor fit, then Jasmine is coming to do your hair and make up.” He added as he flicked his other hand up and held it up as he sashayed down the corridor.
“I’m so excited to see you use your quirk!” You said as you let Brian lead you by the hand down to the back room.
“And I’m excited they approved it!” He said as he waved his hand effeminately in the air. “Ok now, I know we’ve discussed the look you’re after but I just want to go over it one more time.”
You smiled and let him lead you to a stool, which you got up onto, so that he could work his magic on you.
“Ok so this is the look I’m after…” you said, then detailed the type of [dress/suit/or other] you were after.
“Ah ha,” he said as he popped a hip out and resting his daintily closed fist on his chin, thinking hard. “Ok sweetums, time to take those rags off and let me get you dem riches!” He said as he clapped his hands commandingly.
You stripped off, keeping the bare essentials on and stood there awkwardly as Brian sashayed around you, holding his fingers up as if framing a photo and muttering things to himself.
After sizing everything up he stood back and held his hands together in prayer.
“I would like to invite, love, success, happiness, inner peace, clarity and Beyoncé into my work today, amen.” Brian prayed.
He struck a pose as he then opened his eyes and pointed his fingers at you.
Suddenly, in a poof of smoke and glitter, reems of threads and fibres shot from each of his finger tips and made their way towards you, weaving themselves and knitting together in the most intricate and beautiful way possible.
Brian slowly moved around you, continuing to make your outfit, fitting it perfectly to your form and bringing out your best assets.
After completing your outfit, in record time, he asked you to turn slowly for him so he could see his work.
“Ah haaa, oh yeah, work it gurl, MMH!” He sung as you turned slowly.
“Bri, I can’t take you seriously.” You laughed, covering your face with embarrassment.
“Gurl, lemme drag in this big ass mirror so you can see yo FINE self.” He said as he tippy toe ran, with arms bent at the elbows, over to the mirror in the corner of the room.
He dragged it in front of you and for the first time, you could see what you looked like.
“Oh! Oh wow.” You gasped in awe, “Bri, you’re so talented!”
“Anything for my precious bean.” He said with a smile. “Norm-baby, come and see your GORGEOUS aunty!” He called.
As if on command little Norman trotted into the room and looked at you.
“ARF!” He squeaked, waging his little nub of a tail excitedly.
“That’s EXACTLY what I think too, baby.” Brian said, looking down at the little bundle of puppy at his feet.
“Ok, it’s your turn Normie-sweets.” Brian said as he knelt down to his puppy. “You stay still now, sugar.”
He quickly and gently knitted together a little puppy tuxedo, fitting it onto his little one neatly.
“There you go, sweetness, you’re all ready to be the flower boy now!” He said as he clapped his hands excitedly.
“HELLO?? IS THE QUEEN HERE?” A deep voice called out from the front door.
“If you’re meaning your AH-may-zing self, then yes come on in pooh-bear!” Brian called. “Looks like your make up and hair stylist is here.” Brian said to you with an exaggerated wink as he stood up and and walked out to greet Jasmine.
“Ok Jazzie-honey, let me cover your eyes for the big reveal.” You heard Brian say.
“SHE’S READY ALREADY?!” Jasmine gasped.
“I work at the speed of Beyoncé.” Brian replied as he covered her eyes and walked her into the room.
“Jazzie-pooh, allow me to introduce the QUEEN!” Brian said excitedly as he uncovered Jasmine’s eyes and stepped back.
You were still standing on the stool, big grin plastered on your face as Jasmine opened her eyes and focused on you.
“Oh heavens!” She gasped with amazement. “Y/N, you look stunning!”
“Right?!” Brian exclaimed from behind her.
“You’ve done an amazing job, bunny!” Jasmine praised as she turned to Brian.
“You flatter me.” Brian said bashfully with a sly hand flick, “keep going.”
The two giggled together like school girls then turned their full attention on you.
“Here, honey, let me help you down.” Brian offered as he quickly trotted over to you and took your hand to help you down from the stool.
“Thanks Bri.” You said gratefully as you stepped down.
