I do not own Hairspray or any of it's characters.
A.N. – I absolutely adore Hairspray and wanted to try writing a little piece of Trink fluffiness. I'll update when I get some reviews. It's the first time I've published anything, so please don't be too harsh!
Seaweed watched as Link paced nervously around the floor. They were getting ready for a dinner Corny and Maybelle were throwing to celebrate the 5th year of racial integration on the Corny Collins show.
"What's up, man? You've been acting weird all day, and I've not seen you dance that bad since Amber!"
Link looked at him, "You know how you're always saying how you don't know how to thank me for Inez?"
Ever since Link had pulled Inez onstage at the Miss Hairspray pageant she had become the most popular dancer on the show, and even got a record deal. Seaweed saw how happy she was, and knew it was all down to Link.
"Well, now I know how you can do it," Link continued.
"Anything! You've done so much for my family,"
"Well, I finally did it! I asked Tracy to marry me!" Link looked happier than ever, and Seaweed knew how much he loved Tracy.
"Congratulations! But what does that have to do with me?"
"Well…..I was wondering….well," Link was stumbling over his words.
"Damnit cracker-boy," what started as a casual insult was now a term of affection "I aint ever seen you THIS worked up!"
"We were going to tell everyone tonight at dinner, but I wanted ask you if you'd be my best man…" Link trailed off when he saw the look on Seaweed's face.
Seaweed was shocked. He knew that he was Link's closest friend, but he had expected him to ask Brad or IQ or any of the other guys the used to be on the show, that Link had known since birth and although he'd never met the man and he was never mentioned, he got the impression that Link's dad wouldn't approve of "Negroes" never being at the wedding, never mind best-man.
"I would b-b-be honoured," This time Seaweed was the one stuttering "But…are you sure?"
Link flashed his trademark grin. "Who else would I ask? And please don't say Brad…"
"Come on, my mama'll be cracking skulls if we're late!" Seaweed laughed as he checked his watch.
Tracy jumped up excitedly at a knock on the door. She opened it and quickly ushered her friend Penny upstairs, to get ready for Maybelle's dinner. Tracy and her parents had moved out of the cramped apartment and bought a small house, a few blocks away from Maybelle's record store, which had been passed on to Penny after Maybelle became to busy co-hosting the show to continue running it. Penny hadn't talked to her mother since the night of the pageant, but she recovered when she realised that she gained two more – Maybelle and Edna. Tracy closed the bedroom door after the two of them and started jumping up and down excitedly.
"Look, Penny, I haven't told my mum yet," Tracy began speaking in a quiet but excited voice, "But the last night when Link took me to dinner, he proposed!"
Penny leaped off the bed where she had been sitting and let out a squeak of happiness for her oldest and best friend.
"Oh my god! That's so great!" She squeaked, causing Tracy to hush her. "But why haven't you told your parents yet?" she continued in a whisper.
"We're going to officially announce it to them and everybody else at the dinner tonight!" Tracy answered. "But I wanted to tell you first, because I need to ask…."
"What? Anything!" Penny took the lollipop out of her mouth for the first time since she arrived.
"Will-you-be-my-maid-of-honour?!" Tracy asked without taking a breath.
"Yesyesyesyes!" Both girls squealed excitedly.
"Now…" Tracy returned to her normal (loud) voice "What should I wear for tonight?"
A.N. Ta Daa…..Please review! The dinner will be in the next chapter, I think.
