Sorry about the long wait, my mom's health has really been deteriorating over the last year causing a lot of stress, I've actually gone months at a time without writing anything and I have so many stories I'm working on both fanfictions and a few original ones that I just can't seem to keep everything updated regularly. But a nice relaxing weekend staying with my grandparents got me writing again, so here's the next chapter.
The next morning Maggie returned to the cave after a quick shopping trip and set a couple of bags on the desk where William was sitting.
"What's this?" he asked.
"An attempt to make you look a little less scary for our picnic with Jen," Maggie told him, "Hopefully they're the right size," she added as she pulled out a pair of blue jeans, a belt and an obnoxiously bright florescent pink Hawaiian shirt with equally bright yellow and orange flowers on it.
William looked at her like she was crazy, "You seriously don't expect me to wear that shirt do you?" he asked.
"What? It'll need a little modification for your wings, but I thought it was pretty," Maggie said acting hurt that he didn't seem to like it.
"But-" William started then hesitated looking torn between telling her what he thought of the shirt or not saying anything to avoid hurting her feelings.
"I figured the shirt is so horrifying and you're so horrifying looking that if you wear it, it'll just look too funny for you or the shirt to look so bad," she said then grinned, "Although if you really don't like it, you could always just wear this," she said, pulling a black, long sleeved, button front shirt out of the bag.
"You are evil, you know that?" William asked.
"But it was so worth the look on your face. Anyways it was marked down to fifty cents and I swear everyone working at the second hand shop let out a sigh of relief when they realized someone was actually going to get it out of there," Maggie told him, "I stopped at home and washed everything so you go ahead and get dressed, I'll go pick up Jen and meet you at the house in a little while," she said before leaving.
"So are you ready to go meet my fiancé?" Maggie asked when she got to Jen's house to pick her up.
"No, but I don't think I ever will be, so let's just get this over with," Jen replied.
"He really is harmless now. You know that horrible Hawaiian shirt that's been on the sale rack at the second hand shop for the last five months?" Maggie asked as they got into her car.
"I bought it for him and I think he was actually going to wear it just to avoid hurting my feelings," Maggie told her.
"Oh my gosh, that would have been hilarious to see." Jen said laughing at the idea, "You're right, if he was going to wear that just to make you happy, he can't be that bad and he has to be either insane or insanely in love with you."
"And he was so cute when he was sitting there trying to figure out whether or not to tell me what he really thought of it," Maggie said.
"The Creeper, look cute? Is that even possible?" Jen asked.
"It is, I never would have believed it was possible if I hadn't seen it myself, but he just looked so unsure and confused about how to react that there's just no other way to describe it than adorably cute," Maggie replied.
A little while later they pulled off the road at the edge of a large forest, "Where exactly are we having this picnic?" Jen asked.
"At my new house, granted it'll need a bit of modernizing, but it was built by William's grandfather. I'm still doing some research, but so far I think the state owns the land since as far as anyone knew there were no relatives to claim it. We'll probably have to buy it back since I doubt they'll accept a two hundred year old claim to the land, but hopefully that will be easier than it would have been if the property had been split up and sold to different people and we had to deal with regular owners," Maggie told her as she led her through the woods.
"It certainly looks like your type of place, middle of nowhere and no neighbors for miles," Jen said then fell silent as they stepped into a small clearing.
The house sat at one side of the clearing and at the other side a blanket was spread out under a large tree and William was getting their picnic set up.
"It's alright, he doesn't bite, not anymore," Maggie said as Jen grabbed her hand in a death grip.
"I'm really sorry about attacking you, I really had no control over it and I would never hurt you now that the curse can't control me," William told her.
"I know, I'm just having a hard time making part of myself believe it," Jen replied sounding on the verge of panicking.
"You had better be right about this," William said to Maggie.
Before she could ask what he was talking about he started to unbutton the loose fitting black shirt.
"Oh dear lord," Jen managed to get out as both girls clamped a hand over their mouths and she let out muffled snort of laughter as he took off the black shirt to reveal that he was wearing the Hawaiian shirt under it.
They finally gave up their attempts at controlling themselves and started laughing so hard they had to lean against each other to avoid falling to the ground.
William just sat down, leaning back against the tree and said, "When you to are done, lunch is ready."
After taking a moment to compose themselves Maggie and Jen joined him, Jen sitting as far away from William as possible and looking nervous, but still cracking a smile every time she looked at his shirt.
Maggie sat down next to him, kissing his cheek and saying, "You're the best, I guess I was right about the shirt, now I just wish I had my camera with me."
"It's already embarrassing enough having to wear this thing, there's no way I'd let you get any evidence to prove that I wore it," William told her.
"Even if I begged you to let me take a picture?" Maggie asked.
"Even if you begged and promised to marry me today so I could escape the curse and get back to looking normal," he replied.
"Oh well, and it would have made such great blackmail," she said.
The rest of the day they spent visiting and showing Jen the house and property. Luckily by the end of the day Jen had warmed up to him and had pretty well gotten over her fear of him.
"So you going to come with me when I tell my mom about him?" Maggie asked as she drove Jen home.
"Yeah, I think I'll be fine to do that. I guess you were right, he doesn't seem so bad when he's not trying to eat you and wearing that shirt," Jen said grinning, "Oh by the way, I got you something."
"What?" Maggie asked as she pulled into the driveway at Jen's house.
Jen pulled out her cell phone, "Well you know this thing just happens to have a camera on it," she said as she brought up a picture of William and Maggie, "He was distracted talking to you about something and I just couldn't resist making sure we got a picture of him in that shirt.
Maggie grinned, "You are the best, you'll email a copy of that right?"
"Of course. You don't think he'll be mad though, do you?" Jen asked a little nervously.
"No, I won't even let him know I have it right away and by the time he does find out I have it I'm sure we'll all get a good laugh out of it," Maggie told her then asked, "Are you free on Sunday? Mom want's me to come over for dinner and I thought that would be a good time to tell her about William."
"Yep, that should work out fine," Jen told her.
