Chloe’s POV

 I prepared everything last night before going to bed so I could spend half of my Saturday lounging around the house before the party at Jessica’s. I am sitting in my bed, laptop in my lap, a box of Kleenex beside me while tears are streaming down my face as I watch the moment where the female character; Allie, remembers her husband; Noah. This is how Andy saw me as she came in my room.

“Chloe.” She sang my name. Her expression changed when she saw the state that I’m in. “What’s wrong?” She asked.

“Nothing, I was just watching a movie.” I chuckled as I paused the movie and dried my tears as she walked towards my bed and sat beside me.

“You’re watching The Notebook? Why are you watching such a movie like that in Halloween? You should be watching scary movies.” She said.

“I came up with this tradition that every Halloween I would watch sad, tear jerking movies and at Valentine’s Day, I’d watch the scary movies.”

“Cool.” She said. “Anyway, the reason why I’m here is because I don’t have anything to wear for tonight.” She sighed. “I can’t decide what my costume would be and I need your opinion on it.”

“Okay… where are these said costumes.”

“Josh is bringing them up.” She smiled, as if on cue, Josh made an entrance by slipping and fell flat faced on the floor. Good thing my floor’s carpet.

“A little help here guys.” He mumbled. We got off the bed and helped him up. “I feel emasculated by what just happened. You,” he pointed at Andy. “I’ll never carry your dresses ever again.” Andy laughed it off. 

“Chloe, mum sa- dude, what happened to you?” Alex said from the hallway as he looks at Josh.

“Nothing.” He shrugged.

“Anyway, lunch’s ready.”

“We’ll be down in a sec.” I replied.

Mum made steak and potatoes for lunch. After we helped mum clean up, me, Andy and mum headed upstairs to help Andy decide what costume she’d wear for tonight. We left Josh and Alex to play video games.

“So? What do you think?” She twirled.

“A fairy?” She’s wearing a strapless green dress that emphasizes the boobs that’s all poufy and ends mid thigh. She had matching wings, wand and a flower crown.

“I think it looks good.” Mum said.

“Yeah, but… don’t you think Erica’s going to wear something like that?” I asked.

“You’re right,” She sighed. “Okay! Onto the next!” She went back to the bathroom and after a few minutes emerged in a different costume.

“No… It doesn’t’ look good at all.” I said as soon as I saw what she’s wearing. She literally looked like a toddler.

“Really?”

I nodded. “Show us the last one.” Again, after a few minutes.

“So?” she asked.

“That’s the one.” I smiled. This pirate outfit suits her well.

“Much better than the other two, dear.” Mum said.

Mason’s POV

I have become a person I do not recognize anymore. Why did I tell that? I bribed, no paid my soon-to-be-sister 50 bucks to be my eyes and ears in Blondie and James’ supposed date or whatever it is that you call going to a party together. Sure I did a couple of illegal things before Blondie, but never this. I have never done or reached this point when it came to a girl.
