Today is the day. I had been counting down for the last 6 months and now it's finally here, all that waiting and squealing and annoying everyone around me with my constant excitement. Today is the day where my inner 6 year old can wander around and look at everything she wishes she was. And at age 20 I guess I still could be, in fact I couldn't settle for anything else. Today is the first day of my future and I am running behind schedule. Next thing I know 3 very excited girls are jumping on my bed and throwing off the only things protecting me from the cold. I reached out for my duvet that was half away across the room in a feeble attempt and then gave in. A small smile forming on my face into the hugest grin and I joined them jumping up and down.
"Okay, okay I'm up now happy?" I pretended like I was all chill about it and pushed them out my room before doing one last rounds of jumps and flouncing onto my bed. Now it's time, I opened up my wardrobe and dragged out my costume oh my god! oh my god! oh my god! It's perfect.
The four us walked into the building and found ourselves surrounded by people just like us. Dressed up in costumes and buying memorabilia. You see we're at comic con, the first time we've been able to come and I can't even put into words how amazing it is. My friends were never a huge fan of Marvel, but I made them love it and they all came today and even dressed the part. Hattie was wearing a bright red crop top with a flash up light placed right in the middle, which she could never stop playing with, a pair of yellow leggings and some skin tight red boots. Along with the mask she became Iron man or Iron girl? Jem was in a black play-suit identical to Thor's top half and some long black boots. She also has this long red cloak on, which irritated everyone on the car ride up with the windows open it's a lucky chance we didn't crash. The best bit was the hammer, identical and perfect in every single way. Isabel had on a very 1960's style dress completed with stars and stripes and dripping America. A little blue hat was tilted on her head and she would break out into tap dance at any given moment. Obviously for me there was only one choice, Loki. I had something like a play-suit on. A combination of green and black shorts, a top, a corset and enormous boots. Of course, sat on my head like a crown was the golden horns and no matter how much I tried they were just as uncomfortable as they looked.
"Emily, check out that guy over there he's really cute right..." Hattie never stops thinking about the male population surrounding her, but before I could answer Isabel and Jem skipped over. Jem nudged me.
"Cute guy in the Deadpool outfit fancy coming over to him with me," trust me I didn't need to be asked twice. They started talking about music or whatever, I just stood there like a potato not really feeling up to third-wheeling so I turned to walk back to Isabel. As I was turning my horns almost hit someone in the face and next thing I know they were on the floor.
"Oh gosh, I am so sorry I didn't mean to. Wait what are you doing?" At first I though he was hurt despite the fact I hadn't touched him, but he was actually just kneeling on his knees. He looked at me straight through the slits in his Captain America costume and Holy Damn his eyes they looked so familiar, but I didn't care I was just lost in them.
"Well I'm kneeling of course, isn't that what Loki wants," I managed to give a weak nod when he smiled the biggest grin I had ever seen "Well Loki may be bad, but I wouldn't mind kneeling to someone as beautiful as you" He said it so effortlessly and yet he seemed to be beating himself up over what he said
"Thank you, don't let me get to close I can be a little unpredictable," I joked in the spirit of Loki. A small smirk embraced the left side of his face and he pulled me away from the crowds and into an abandoned corner. Needless to say I was petrified when he pulled of his mask and I put a name next to his eyes and that adorable accent.
"Hi, I'm Ashton Irwin and I'd love to know yours and then maybe a few numbers after that" Talk about being unpredictable!
