Title: All Hallows Eve
Disclaimer: Kyle XY and its affiliated characters unfortunately do not belong to me. I only "borrow" them to de-stress and procrastinate.
Summary: Josh and Andy plan on spending Halloween together just watching movies, but there's another plan in store. Jandy story.
Spoilers: None that I can think of.
Notes: This story doesn't really fit into the Kyle XY scheme of things. It's just a free standing story before Andy announces that she has cancer.
Chapter 1 – "You're Soaked!"
Josh looked at his hair in the mirror for the last time. He only had another two minutes before she was supposed to arrive. Another two minutes to make sure that his hair wasn't totally horrible. He winked at the mirror, approving of his not too messy, but not too perfect hair. As he took a deep breath to make sure that his breath was as minty fresh as the gum he had popped in his mouth and subsequently swallowed, the doorbell rang. He held his breath and approached the door.
"Trick or treat!" A mummy, a police officer, and Harry Potter screeched, holding their bags out to Josh.
Disappointed, Josh grabbed the bowl of candy that his mom had left next to the door.
"Ooh…scary," he said as the mummy began to make groaning noises that were supposed to be frightening. "Here you go." He dropped a candy bar into each of their bags.
"Thanks!" They shouted altogether before turning around and running back into the rain to go on to the next house.
The downpour that had been falling since the early morning had severely diminished the number of kids who rang the Trager's doorbell and it had put a damper on a number of other people's Halloween plans, but not Josh's. Rain or no rain, he was excited about the impending night.
He began to close the door, the wind howling by like a wolf's cry.
"Trick or treat," a voice said.
Josh recognized the voice instantly and it made him smile. He opened the door once more. But, as he looked her over, his smile dissipated.
"You're soaked!" He exclaimed, noticing that her teeth were chattering. The temperature had dropped to the mid forties and the rain made it even colder.
"I noticed," she replied.
He stood in the doorway, staring at her sopping wet hair stuck to the sides of her face. Anyone else who had walked four blocks in the rain would look like a drowned rat, but in his eyes, she looked like anything but.
"Ah…can I come in?" She asked.
"Oh, yeah, sorry."
He stepped aside as she walked in. As he closed the door behind her, she shivered and began to peel to soaking wet coat off her body.
"Did you walk here or something?" He questioned, watching the way her black long sleeved shirt clung to her body.
"Yeah, well not all of us have a clunker to drive around."
"At least I have a clunker," he remarked. "I would have picked you up, you know."
"And ruin your precious hair?" She playfully ran her hand through his hair, ruffling it. She loved teasing him. "It's okay, I enjoyed the walk."
"And now you're soaked and freezing," he pointed out.
"Well a towel and a change of clothes might help," she stated, ringing out the bottom of her T-Shirt over the floor.
"I'll be right back."
He began to take the stairs two at a time. He wanted nothing more than to just sit on the couch with her and begin watching a scary movie that would hopefully scare her so much that she'd want to sit closer to him. As he thought about whether or not he should get clothes from his room for her to wear or Lori's, he realized that her changing into his clothes wasn't exactly a bad place to start.
He rummaged through his closet for a clean T-Shirt and pair of pants. When he finally found something she could wear, he raced to the bathroom and grabbed a towel. On his way back out the door, he checked his hair once more. He could still feel her finger tips gliding over his scalp. He wondered what it would feel like to run his own hands through her hair.
Trying to clear his mind and remind himself that they were just friends, he headed back downstairs. He found her standing in the middle of the living room, holding the DVD's he had picked out at the rental store a few hours before.
"Attack of the Zombies one and two, Zombies Attack, City of Zombies, and A Cinderella Story?"
"That one's for Lori," Josh quickly insisted.
She smiled at him as he handed her the clothes and towel. "Besides," she said, close to his ear. "I like a guy who's in touch with his feminine side."
She walked away towards the bathroom, closing the door behind her.
Author's Note: This is just a fun, quirky, fluffy story that I came up with the other day in the shower (interestingly enough – most of my stories are first developed in the shower because it's where I do my best thinking). Again, I thought it would be a one-shot, but obviously it's not. My goal is to have the whole story posted by Halloween so hopefully (if time permits) you won't have to wait long for the next chapter! Thanks for reading and please review!
