Author's Note: I, Lain Hime-chan, do not own any of the "State of Grace"
characters. Don't sue me. I have no money anyway. Now, I know this idea is
sort of strange... but this is just my first fanfic of SoG so of course it's
not perfect. This is just the first "chapter", and this is just a test to
see if I get any feedback at all. I may add more, I may not. But anyway...
here is the fic. Enjoy, even if it sucks.
Grace McKee stepped in front of her bedroom mirror, admiring herself in her
new totally retro blue dress. It was the latest fashion, from Europe in
fact, and it looked marvelous on her. She smiled, and turned around as her
mother walked in.
"Hi Tattie. You're home!" she yelled geefully, running to her mother to
gracefully embrace her. Tattie tried to balance both her cocktail and her
cigerette in one hand as she held her daughter.
"Oh, my darling daughter is growing up..." Tattie whispered into Grace's
hair, gently rubbing the blonde strands. She sighed, tears starting to come
to her eyes. She gently wiped them away and stepped away, admiring her
"Tattie, it's just my first date. With barnbreath no doubt... nothing
special." Grace giggled. She turned back to the mirror. She still couldn't
believe that he invited her to a movie and a burger only a week ago.
Usually they joked around all of the time, and she never imagined that she
may start liking him. But, alas, she did, and he would arrive in only a few
minutes, on his bike no less.
Tattie sighed, cheerfully. "Now, don't let this boy do anything that you
don't want, okay? You're only a girl... oh! Here." She exclaimed, walking to
Grace's dresser and took out a blue scarf, and she brought it to Grace.
"Here Gracie, you can wear this scarf in order not to get the wind in your
hair. You don't have to ride your bike, I can always ask Greer to drive you
Yeah, and have Greer spy on us no less, she thought. She smiled her most
convincing smile. "No thanks mom, we'll be fine." She quickly looked at the
clock. "Oh no! He'll be here any minute. Help me choose what shoes to
wear..." she said, walking into her closet.
Tattie agreed, following her. Within minutes Tattie helped Grace put on
some beautiful shoes that matched her dress, and the door bell rang. Grace
didn't rush to answer it because she knew Cookie would have answered it all
ready, and that he would have been invited in the waiting room by now.
"There he is!" Tattie exclaimed as she heard the doorbell ring, messing
with her daughter's hair a little bit before ushering her forward. "Go on
now, have a wonderful time. Don't forget to come back by 8."
Grace smiled, giving her mother a farewell hug and a kiss on the forehead,
before she walked out of her bedroom to the waiting room, where her date
