Ethan: I was bouncing with excitement, Halloween was by far my favorite holiday, when September 1st would roll around I would start planning my outfit, decorating and getting into the spooky mood, this of course didn’t stop when I started dating my dear boyfriend, Ethan. For someone who loves Halloween he sure was a downer, always saying ‘It’s too early to start this shit’ to which I would just roll my eyes at his complaints and continue on my way of celebrating. Today was the day though, it was the day that my grumpy boyfriend would accompany me.
“Baby are you-” Ethan made his way to the doorway of the bathroom, as soon as he was in the doorway, I popped up in front of him, bouncing on my toes. “Ready? Yes, I am!” His eyes widened at my hyper state, but it didn’t last long until he rolled his eyes and replaced his surprise with annoyance. “Oh, come on baby, don’t be like that!” I wrapped my arms around his neck and pull myself closer, his arms wrapped around my waist and he connected my eyes with his. “You start this way too early baby, Halloween isn’t for a month.” His face gave off a bored expression, but that quickly changed when I kissed him, it was a sweet, passionate but short-lasting kiss, just to get him in a better mood. “If your going to be grouchy then I’ll just take Grayson with me.” He narrowed his eyes at me and pulled me closer to him. “No way am I letting my little brother take my spot as boyfriend for the day.” I smirked and leaned in, ghosting my lips on his, “Then don’t complain.” And with that I moved away from him and moved out of the bathroom and grabbed my purse and his keys, throwing them to his chest, he expertly caught them while watching my movements. “Let’s go Scrooge!” I make my way out of his room but not before hearing him retort back “That’s for Christmas not Halloween!”
This had to have been our forth store, we had found so many goodies but I still wanted more, Ethan would moan and groan about wanting to go home, but I saw the way his eyes lit up when he saw skulls and ghosts on things, I knew he liked this adventure but lord knows the boy is as stubborn as a rock and would never admit it to himself. “Bup look how cute this is!” I admire the Jack Skellington and Sally figurine as I feel Ethan’s strong arms wrap around my waist, his head rests on my shoulder as he stares at the toy. “It is pretty cute I guess.” I smile and turn to him and playfully hit his arm. “Now look who is getting into the spirit!” He rolls his eyes for the thousandth time today and scuffed “Don’t let it get to your head, I still think this is lame and that it’s too early to be Halloween shopping.” I purse my lips at him and continue on my way, checking out other cute things that I could place around the house.
I huff as I try for the third time to place the stupid Halloween candles on the mantle that has proven to be too tall for my short stature. I hear a snicker from behind me and I whip around to an amused looking Ethan leaning against the doorframe of the kitchen. “How long have you been standing there?” My eyebrows furrow and I place my hands on my hips, staring down the giant. “Oh, I’ve been here since the first attempt babes, I just like seeing your ass jiggle when you jump.” He pushes himself off the doorframe and makes his way over, I scuff at his comment and I watch him approach me and wrap a single arm around me, letting his massive hand rest on my butt, giving it a gentle squeeze. “Let me help you princess.” He places a kiss on my forehead and takes the candles from my hands and easily places them on the mantle, turning back to me with a shit-eating grin. “Netflix and chill?” He opens his arms to me, I walk into them and hug him, “How about just Netflix?”
It was about half way through our Netflix horror session when Grayson burst through the door to the house with plentiful bags from various stores. “I got Halloween decorations!” He beams at us and I gasp with excitement as Ethan lets out a frustrated groan. It was then that Grayson took in his surrounding and burst out laughing, I soon followed, “Where are we going to put all of this you assclown?!”
Grayson: I woke up with a glow of excitement this morning, today was the day Grayson and I were going to go pumpkin picking and get the perfect pumpkins to carve. I got ready the fastest I ever had, making sure that I took the least amount of time so that we could leave and get there already. “Gray hurry up!” I drew out his name and pouted, he was picking out what to wear and taking forever while doing so, “I’m sorry babygirl but I need to figure out what to wear!” I groaned and stepped in, grabbing a black tee and some jeans, “There easy, change and let’s go, I want to get good pumpkins!” He smirked at me and put his finger to his chin, “I don’t know baby, I don’t really like it.” I glared at him and he laughed, pulling me to his bare chest. “I’m kidding baby, I’ll wear it, gimme a few seconds and I’ll be ready I promise.” He kisses my head and I melt into him, I couldn’t stay mad at this man for my life. “Okay baby meet me in the living room” I leave him to get changed and as he promised we left soon after.
“Baby this is the perfect pumpkin!” I point out my choice to Grayson and he looks up from the pumpkin he was looking at and his gaze meets the orange orb that I was pointing at. “Do you want it Princess?” I nod, and he comes over and lifts the massive round pumpkin like it was nothing, placing it in our cart gently and pulling it along as we look for more pumpkins, each one being easily lifted by the Adonis I call my boyfriend.
After we stopped at a store to get the carving equipment we placed a tarp onto the ground around us and another one on the table we would be using for easy clean up. We got everything ready and changed into old clothes, so we didn’t ruin our good ones, we gutted the pumpkins, making sure to save the seeds so we could roast them and began carving.
After hearing several groans coming from Grayson as he continued on carving, I look over, “What’s wrong?” he huffed and looked over at my pumpkin, groaning even more, “Mine is turning out like fucking shit!” I frown and look over at his mangled mess, I bit my lip holding back a giggle and looked up at him. “Do you want some help to salvage it?” he gave me a curt nod and I move myself beside him, so I could work on the pumpkin. A few minutes in, I feel Gray place his hands on my hips and move me so I’m in between his legs.
I finish the pumpkin and we both move on to our second ones, Grayson successfully finishing this one on his own. After cleaning up and placing our pumpkins in various spots across the yard we lit them and went inside to make ho chocolate, while I was working on filling the kettle Gray found some spooky songs to play so that we could really get into the Halloween mood, his choice was the ever so classic ‘Monster Mash’, I giggle at his choice and he grabs my hips, swaying us both gently and after turning on the kettle I turn my body towards him, wrapping my arms around his neck and placing my lips softly against his.
“I love you Gray.” My voice sounded like I was in a trance, intoxicated by the love that I felt at this moment. I see a smile adorn his features, his dimple making an appearance. “I love you too baby.” I look into his eyes as he leans in and connects our lips again, but this is short lived as we had a visitor. “Get a fucking room.” “How about you get a fucking girl bro.” I stifle a laugh as I watch Ethan glare at his twin and mumble some insult under his breath.
