Author’s Note: Thanks to Kat for betaing this & helping to write it.

Bernd gave Amber his best sad puppy face. Their friend Denis was having a Star Wars party and Bernd had got it into his head that it would be really cool if they dressed up like their favorite characters. So he had spent the better part of the afternoon, trying to get Amber to go as slave-girl Leia. He had tried everything he could think of from telling her how hot he thought she would look, to no one else would have the guts to dress like that; to how awesome it would be if she did. He even tried begging, to no avail.

Amber, however, was impervious to that face. She gave him her best no nonsense look and said, “No.” She followed that up with a brief smile, before going back to digging through her closet for her black vest.

“But!” Bernd blinked. Amber’s twin brother James always did whatever Bernd wanted whenever he gazed at him like that. Even his own brother Didi would fall for it.

“No,” Amber said firmly. Spotting her black boots, she reached down and grabbed them, before tossing them behind her.

“But I told them...” Bernd said, his voice having a faint whine to it.

“You like it so much, you wear it,” Amber said in a tone that brooked no argument.

“But, but…”

“But nothing. Yes!!” Amber found her vest in the back of the closet on the floor. She grumbled wordlessly to herself as it was wrinkled, but otherwise clean. She wondered if she could get by without ironing it as she was only dressing up to appease her boyfriend.

“So you’ll wear it?” He smiled at her, hoping against hope that she was finally agreeing to it.

“No.” Amber made a face at him. “I just found the vest I was looking for.”

“Oh…” Bernd sighed. “So ummm… Do you know where the pink braid is?” he said, referring to a long clip-on wiglet they had found last year when the Halloween shop in town ran its yearly after the holiday sale, before closing its doors until next year.

Amber shook her head as she took a shoe box down from the shelf in her closet. Opening it, she took the long pink braid out form it and handed it to him. “See you in a few minutes?”

“Yeah…” Bernd said. He left the room, returning ten minutes later, dressed like slave girl Leia.

Amber grinned. “You look awesome!” she said and she meant it. The costume, which they had found at the same sale, fit his slender frame much better than her curvaceous one. It may have been a one size fits all, but she was sure they had got that wrong in the manufacturing.

Bernd blushed. “Yeah?” He smiled shyly at her.

“Yeah! Anyway, let me pull my hair back and then we can go.” She gathered her mass of turquoise curls into a low ponytail, securing it with a hair tie.

“You know, you’re kinda cute for a scruffy old nerf-herder,” he said, doing his best to quote Princess Leia.

Amber snorted. “Scruffy, hunh?”

Bernd moved closer and kissed her. “Yeah… Now can you help me with my braid?”

“Sure…” Amber took it as he turned to face away from her. Grabbing a section of hair on the crown of his head, she clipped it in. “Ready, your Worshipfulness?” She flashed him Han Solo’s trademark smirk.

“Yup!” Bernd kissed her. “I love you,” he said softly.

“I know,” she replied with a cocky grin.

They laughed.

“Let’s go,” Bernd said. Taking her hand, he led her to her bedroom door.

“Wait! Meet me outside.”

“Okay.” Bernd left to do as he was bidden, while Amber dug around in her closet again. While it was an unusually warm May fourth, she knew it would not take much before he was whining about being cold. In a bigger box on the floor, she found their homemade Princess Leia costume; a white turtle neck maxi dress they found in the thrift store and the pink cinnamon bun wiglet she had made from a pair of pink earmuffs and a pink wig they found, along with a pair of white tights. She stuffed them in a bag, before meeting him outside by the car. Despite her misgivings about it being one of Denis’ parties, she had a feeling it would turn out to be a fun night after all.
