A surprise present.
Sorry, I haven't been on lately but I’ve been busy. Enjoy the nice longish story with is COMPLETE!
It was a chilly but beautiful night, the moon was full, snow was gently floating down to the ground like there were several small white feathers falling down to the ground. The streets are filled with beautiful Christmas lights shining brightly help g illuminate the starry night. Watching over Paris was everyone's favorite heroes Ladybug and Chat Noir, they were swinging from house to house watching over Paris as a precaution to make sure that everyone was safe. Once the heroes reached the Eiffel Tower they sat down at the top of the magnificent structure each with a surprise for their partner.
“Hi Bugaboo its been a while since I’ve seen you hasn’t it.” The flirty cat says starting up a conversation
“Hello Chaton it has n’t it, it seems like Hawkmoth is in the holiday spirit and been taking a holiday break”
“Well doesn’t that sound purrfect but I would like furr you to know that I have something purr you.”
“Really, isn’t that a coincidence but I have something for you too.”
“Hey and I thought I was so-purr-osed to be Santa Paws no fur.”
“Stop it with the puns you alley cat, do you want your present or not.”
“Sorry, my lady but I just can’t help my self but could I give you my purrsent first.”
“Sure kitty, should I close my eyes so I don’t ruin the surprise?” She says after rolling her eyes then responds in a teasing manner.
“Haha very funny no I don’t need you to do that since I already thought ahead and wrapped the purrsent.” He says as he hands her a beautiful small box wrapped in a wrapping paper decorated with Santa hats and cookies. She carefully unwraps the box making sure not to rip the wrapping paper treating it like its made out of glass, as soon as she opens the box she stops to gasp at the sheer beauty of it.
“Oh Chat you shouldn’t of have, its so beautiful, it really is too much, it looks so expensive, thank you.” She says while she holds up one of the most beautiful necklaces that she has ever seen it was a gold 18k charm necklace and on the chains, there were three charms one of a ladybug, a cute little black cat, and in the middle a snowflake. You could tell that the necklace was handcrafted and expensive it was perfect for them it symbolized them in every way.
“I wanted to give you something just as beautiful and special as you and since it has been a while since we’ve been partners I thought I could kill two birds with one rock. I know it might be a bit much but please accept it, well my family is quite well of so money really isn’t that big of a deal to me. Sorry, I probably said too much about my civilian self-didn’t I.” He says with the most sincere and hopeful look in his eyes.
“Oh god don’t know what to say. Well, nothing other than my presents probably not as great as yours but I can tell you that I made it myself.”
“I’m sure its amazing my lady and you made it yourself that's really impressive I didn’t know you designed and made clothes. Anyway, thank you so much for this you don’t know how much this means to me.
“Okay, I hope you like it, "She says while giving him the present in a red wrapping paper with Christmas trees on it. When she passed it to him their hands briefly touch and they both felt a spark. When the wrapped gift finally came into his possession he quickly unwrapped it and pulled out a handmade and designed sweater. It was a Christmas green on it was a black cat with gorgeous bright green eyes (*wink wink*) with a red Santa hat then on the background of the sweater there were green and red Christmas lights placed in a zig-zag pattern.
“It’s purrfect My Lady I’ll cherish it forever and wear it all of the time, really thank you I love it.” and you or that is what he wanted to say to her but he knew he couldn’t it wasn’t the time nor the place to do it and in reality he kind of knew his chances weren’t as good as he’d like them to be, but he still had hope that those chances would improve with time.
“ Your welcome and I’m glad you like it, and I do design but that's enough show and tell for today we shouldn’t know too much about each other's civilian life it could put us and our loved ones in danger.” She said that as she was about to put on the necklace that Chat has just given her, but she just could not manage to get it on by herself.
“Could you help me with this.” You could tell that she was a bit embarrassed that she needed to ask for help but it was necessary.
“Sure I will always help my lady whenever she needs it.” He says while winking at her flirtatiously.
“Very funny Chat but just help with the necklace I don’t need your flirting.”
“Okay Bugaboo glad to be of assistance.”
She hands over the necklace to him, then he takes it from her grasp then walks behind her and clips it on then walks back to face her. After they just stood there for at least a minute just staring into each other's eyes. Then suddenly Ladybug remembers Adrien and not wanting to be unloyal to him nor her own feelings she looks away quickly.
“Um well then, you look purrfect I’ll see you later at the next pawtrol then.”
“See you then, good night Chaton.”
“Good night.” He said then turned away to leave but had to see just one more time before she left as he glances at her he caught her swinging from building to building. And he would swear on his life that he saw the back of necklace going in the light of the full moon.
Once they both got to their own houses they both had a plan to wear their presents the next day and tried to fall asleep. This though did not happen before both were vigorously teased by their Kiwamis both saying something about love.
The next day with Adrien:
“Kid, kid hey kid wake up you need to get to school! Which is still confusing as to why you want to go. ” touted the black Kiwami
“School! I’m going to be late for school!” Adrian said while springing out of his bed in a rush not worried that he will be late.
“Get me cheese I’ve been separated from my love too long. I’m dying here.”
“Shut up Plagg I'm in a good mood I'm going to wear ladybugs present go to school and have a good day.” He said excitedly, ready to show off his present even though he knew that if anyone asked where he got it from he could never tell the truth because of the burden that comes with being a superhero with a hidden identity. Even though he knew all of this was true it was he was still happy to wear it because to him it was like he was keeping a small part of Ladybug close to him.
“The cheese just get me the cheese.” Said Plagg making it obvious that he wasn’t going to be quiet until he got to eat.
“Fine, fine I’ll get you the cheese.” He says as he tosses a piece of Camembert to the small Kiwami, who then catches it and eats in just one bite. As he puts on the sweater, his mind racing he faintly hears Plagg shouting.
“Kid hey kid stop daydreaming about your girlfriend.” He says sarcastically.
“I wish she was my girlfriend that would be a dream come true.”
“Ugg you humans and you silly emotions this is why my only true love is Camembert no problems or complications it's just simple.” He said groaning
“Stop it Plagg, anyway I’m going to be late let's go.”
“Fine but I’ll never understand why you want to go to that place.”
“Tiki wake up we should be getting ready for school.”
“Okay, oh and congratulations Marinette you woke up and on time!” The sweet kiwi said in a teasing manner.
“Really Tiki I’m not that bad at waking up.”
“Right, so are you going to wear Chat’s present,” Tiki says obviously hinting at something more.
“Stop Tiki you know it's not like that I love Adrien and Chat and I are just partners.”
“Fine, wait you're wearing your hair down today?”
“Yes I am since in going to wear his present I don’t want anyone to see it because then they will start asking about it and I don’t want to have to lie more. My hair down will cover the back and then ill just tuck the front of it into the sweater I made recently.”
“Ohh the maroon one with the white that makes it look like its snowing?”
“Yes that one, anyway we should get going or ill be late and I have some cookies in my bag for you.” She goes downstairs to get something to eat. The then grabs a croissant and leaves the building.
“Hey, Alya.” Says the Chinese Parisian
“Hey, girl you look great! Looking for a certain model to notice you.”
“No I just wanted to wear my new design do you like it?”
“Yes, girl! Its amazing like everything else you make.” They talk while walking to the classroom and Chloe just happens to hear their conversation.
“Please (lol the only time she would say please would be to be mean now back to the story) only you would think that's good you probably had to make it since your so poor not a surprise coming from you Maritash. See this, this is designer clothes you could sell many of those pasties and you probably still won't be able to afford this outfit.” She says in a harsh tone with many hand gestures first pointing at Marinette’s clothes in disgust, then pointing at herself ‘showing off’ her own outfit.
“Chloe you know that's not true Marinette’s family makes great desserts and she is very talented and I happen to think that she looks very nice all of the time and especially today. I don’t like the way your acting what happened to the person you were when you were younger because that nice Chloe was my friend this one that acts like a brat is not my friend.” He sys steering making sure to leave no room for argument but apparently, Chloe did not get that message.
“But Adrikins.” She says in this awful annoying tone
“NO Chloe now apologize.” He says in a firm voice
“Please like that's never going to happen.” She says while storming out of the classroom Sabrina filling close behind with a regretful look on her face.
“Sorry about her I swear she used to be nicer, are you okay.”
“umm,” Marinette says frozen she just could not get any words out so she just nodded.
“She’s fine thanks, Adrien.”
“Right um, I’m fine th th thanks a a Adrien.” She was still in shock and it had just reached her mind what he said she was stuck as soon as Adrien complemented her and from then she had a permanent blush and because of this she had failed to realize what exactly the blond model had been wearing.
“Okay class it seems like everyone is here and on time, take out your homework and pass it to the front of the class.” Mss.Bustier says obviously shocked that everyone is on time for once.
Everyone starts passing their homework to the person in front of them. When Marinette finally had gotten her pepper out of her bag she turned to give it to Adrien but what she saw made her gasp in shock. He yes Adrien was wearing a sweater but not just any sweater the sweater she made for Chat Noir.
“Are you okay.” The blond asked, curious as to why she was gaping at him.
“um y ya I’m fine here.” She said hurriedly shoving her homework into his hands her heart pounding and her mind confused as if it was full of fog or maybe the fog was just lifting for the first time ever.
The rest of the class thoughts were just swarming through her mind. She kept on comparing Chat to Adrien and finally realized how obvious it really was she felt stupid just stupid that she didn’t realize it sooner. She thought of all of the times Chat asked no begged for them to just reveal themselves to each other and how she always refused just for her to be the one to find out stupid. How did she not see it the said the smile the eyes, yes he was annoying kitty but he was kind just like him like Adrien. Wait no this meant that she had a crush on Chat too she was going insane. How was she going to tell him could she tell him. She just didn’t know what to do but before the class ended she decided to tell him that she knew she had to right? But how was she going to tell him did she really have the guts, stop I’M LADYBUG FOR GOODNESS SAKE I AM A POWERFUL CAPABLE WOMAN WHATS THE WORSE POSSIBLE CASE IVE DEFEATED MAGICAL BEINGS IVE DEFEATED A DINOSAUR I CAN DO THIS! But no matter what she knew there was still that pesky devil called doubt that just wouldn’t die.
“You okay girl, you seem out of it .” Alya worriedly asks her best friend once class finally ended.
“Ya, I’m fine I was just thinking that I forgot something ill catch up with you later okay?”
“okay.” She says still worried but she knows Marinette well enough to know that she will figure it out.
When Marinette finally sees that Alya has left she walks up to Adrien shaking herself at how calm she is.
“Hey, Adrien would be okay if I could talk to you.” She says much more confident than anyone would expect.
“Okay,” Adrien replies shocked because he always thought that she still didn’t like him after the whole gum incident since she never really talked to him. (oh poor Adrien and his obliviousness.) “so let's talk.”
“In private please its important how about we go to the park okay?”
“That's fine just let me sent a quick text to Natalie to see if it works with my schedule.” He sent her a text while worrying about what possibly could be so important that is causing Marinette to act like this.
They walk to the park together in awkward silence both worried about the conversation that will soon come.when they reach the park they decide to sit on one of the benches and they each got themselves a hot chocolate to ease a bit of the tension, but for marinate this just made her mind swirl because she realized if they went there to just talking this would 100% qualify as a date but she knew this was not the time to fantasize about Adrien or as she should say her Chat.
“So what did you want to talk about?”
“Umm I’m really not sure how to tell you this but I have to so please be quiet until the end or I don’t think ill be able to finish, okay.” She says making sure that he understands.”
She takes a deep breath then starts.
“I know your Chat Noir I mean I should have realized earlier shouldn’t I of it was so obvious! Then you wore that sweater that was so stupid what if someone saw Ladybug give that to it's a dead giveaway you should have thought that through now I know I wasn’t supposed to know no-one was supposed to why? Why did you have to wear that in such a public place!” She says her nerves taking over her as she nervously messes with her necklace.
“How what your wrong me be someone as cool as Chat that's impossible.”
“Don’t kid yourself, Adrien, I know god why did you wear that sweater the only person who would have that is Chat!”
“How do you know that wait is is that … that necklace where did you get it from!” He says as the puzzle pieces finally start to fit in his mind.
“What necklace?” She says frantically trying to mask her mistake.
“Oh my god your Ladybug!”
“Psh clumsy old me Ladybug ya right that's crazy.”
“oh my god you are and please don’t hide it I guess we finally ended up revealing our civilian selves to each other then.”
“I’m sorry I didn’t want this to happen you must be so disappointed that Ladybug is me right? How could Ladybug be someone as pathetic as me someone who can’t do anything, who is no one special, pathetic, nothing, I’m not strong or brave like her I’m sorry that I’m not who you want me to be.” She says tears brimming in his eyes, pouring out her emotions.”
“What are you talking about? Disappointed you don’t know how happy that it is you. Your amazing, pathetic? You are the one who puts everyone before yourself you are one of the only people who stand up to Chloe. Not special?! You are an amazing smart designer who is kind everyone who’s designed glasses, and an album cover for Jagged Stone so don’t you ever say that you are no one special because you are one of the most special, strong, brave wonderful people I know.”
“You mean it?” She says with a hopeful expression on her face.
“I know so. I didn’t just fall for a mask I fell for the girl underneath that mask and that is you not anyone else but you. Now I know you don’t like me back, but I just had to say it.”
“What do you mean I’ve been in love with you since that rainy day I mean ops?”
“You you, you love me?” He says his eyes widen in shock.
“Um yes yes I do,” Mari says becoming a tomato.
He picks her up in a huge hug and spins her around joy beaming on his face. When he sets her down he says, “You don’t know how happy this makes me! Umm so do you maybe want to go out sometime?” He asks timidly
“I would love that.”
“Sounds great.” And as they got up Adrien saw that mistletoe was hanging above them the whole time. When he tells her about it they both turn strawberry red and don’t know how to act.
Marinette makes the decision and decides to go in. They lean in closer and closer to what seems like hours for them and then finally their mouths meet. It was like there were fireworks and everything was sparkling. As they were kissing Marinette was thinking about just how soft his lips were and how a few hours ago this would have just been a fantasy. Adrien was thinking about how he had finally got to know his lady and this kiss the first kiss that either one of them had ever experienced felt like magic. When they finally pulled away from each other they were out of breath and drunk on their happiness.
“Umm well, then I’ll see you tomorrow My Lady?”
“Sure kitty see you at school.”
The next day they were both very happy even after they both got their respective scoldings and teasing from their Kiwamis about the reveal and kiss. They walked in together holding hands with a smile on their faces. The whole school was shocked and very happy well save for Chloe but she doesn’t matter. Money was exchanged from bets that had been one but when Alya and Nino found out it was cyanotic questions were flying everywhere, but the new couple kept a tight lip and did not say a word. Their best friends were just left in shock.
This was a different righting style than my last story so tell me which you liked more please.
