She tried to enter the ball quietly, but fate had other plans. Each step she took in her heels brought more silence from the crowd and more eyes in her direction. Jemma wanted to shrink away from their awed expressions, but her resolve wouldn’t allow her to do so. She was there for a purpose and she wouldn’t let anxiety stop her. With a poise and grace that matched her beauty, Jemma scanned the face in the crowd until she spotted him. She gave him a tender smile and made her way towards him, blue eyes dancing with happiness. The beauty slid into his arms and she inhaled his scent as she buried her nose into his chest. How could have ever been afraid of this? When she finally glanced up, he was still slack-jawed. She merely giggled and squeezed him tight.
“Y-you came?” her beau said.
“Yes, I did.” Jemma told him as the music started back up. “I couldn’t stay away. I also promised you that you would have a date for the ball.”
“But that’s the fifth spell!” he said as held Jemma close. “that means...”
“Yes, I’m Jemma forever. But it’s OK... I’m glad.” she said without a hint of regret.
“Because, Mark, I’m your best friend. I didn’t want to let you down. Because the last four times we used the spell I enjoyed being a girl way more than I let on. Because that time I pretended to be your girlfriend during spring break was the most wonderful time of my life. And Because I love you.” Jemma blushed, still not believing she admitted it out loud. Her heart thumped under her breasts as a torrid flood of emotions swept over her. The uncertainty in Mark’s eyes almost made her pull away, but all fears were calmed by a simple kiss on the lips. Her eyes closed as she melted into him, finally sure she had made the right choice.
“I love you too,” Mark managed after they broke the kiss. “I was just..scared.”
“Well, you’ll have to get over it quickly.” Jemma said with a smirk. “If I’m going to be a girl for you, then you better take care of me. I’ll require lots of pampering and attention.” She giggled when his eyes rolled, but was silenced by another intimate kiss. “Ok, that’s a good start.”
