As fast as he could he jumped out of the car and left Zoe. He had called so the stuff was ready. Almost as soon as he entered he came out hollered for Zoe to pop the trunk. Quickly she got out and slid the key into the trunk and lifted, but in doing so...she gave him perfect veiw of her stomach and the way her pants dipped down a little in front...he almost dropped the heavy boxes. King found his mouth dry as he stuffed the trunk and slammed it shut. "Thats it, anything you wanna stop and get while were out?" She stood by the door for a moment and patted her chin thinking. "Umm...yeah. I need to go Hot Topic. I got my check a few days ago and I had Abby cash it for me so I got some moonayy." He nodded and smiled, getting in. He noted her little funny pronouciation to lighten the mood. She got aa check every month from her mothers life insurance. He wanted to cringe just thinking how long it took them to sort out all the legal buisness. And lucky for her, she had tons left...like a few million. They never cashed into her account, it was hers alone. But until she turns 18 himself and Abby have control of how much Zo gets a month. But hell, he thought, they let her get out 5 grand every month. Luckily she never complained. Zoe was a greatful girl. He shifted into drive and they took off.
King noted she was quiet and he turned the radio on, Zerospace by KidneyThieves was playing. Quietly she started singing it to herself. He smirked. "Like this song?" She nodded. "Very much." He shifted again and passed a car, "Alright then." He turned it up to where she couldn't hear herself and she started yelling it.
"Space in your face, it's the way to get you closer;
while you were sittin on your ass, ya
I drank the f*cking ocean
Zerspace the way to get your kicks,
but too many chefs in the kitchen could spoil the mix"
He laughed at her as she hit the right notes and pretended to be singing into a mic. All too soon the song was over and they were walking into the trendy rocker/gothic store. He knew the drill. She'd look around and drag a countless amount of clothes and take them and try them all on, modeling. She'd ask him what looked best etc. But now he kinda felt uneasy knowing why she'd always ask him what he liked. So King took a deep breath and prepared himself as he watched her pile clothes onto her arm and she skipped back to the dressing room. The store wasnt too full. Just a few lingering younger guys and the girl working the counter. Some Slipknot somg was playing as he pulled up a chair. "Okay, here we go." He heard her say. she walked out in baggy black jeans with zippers everywhere and a tight tee shirt. He shook his head. "Next!" She nodded and went back in there. A few more outfits she still hadnt produced one that he thought looked good on her.
"For some reason I think you off today." She growled from behind the heavy red velvet curtain. "Fuck you King, then you go pick out something for me." He laughed. "You sure?" She snorted. "Be my guest." He jumped up and looked around. She never got skirts so he thought he'd have some fun. He found a Tripp Hook eye and Ruffel skirt (black short ruffel skirt), and a Tripp Black Eyelet Corset top. He couldnt help the smirk that formed on his face. SHe was gonna think he was a pervert. He suddenly got nervous about what her reaction would be. So for some encouragement, he whistled at the woman behind the counter. she'd been watching them. She nodded and gave a thumbs up then walked over. "Shoes?" He sighed and she smiled. "I got this, stay here." she came back minuets later and whispered. "these are Demonia Black Three Buckle ass kickers. She'll love these and they'll look awesome." He nodded and swallowed hard. Quickly he slid the outfit under the curtain. He leaned in close and he heard her suck in breath in surprise. Then he sat down and waited. A few minuets went by and he hollered. "Whats wronge?" "Nothing, I actually love this outfit." She stepped out and his heart stopped. She looked like a raving goddess. All the guys applauded and whistled. King was proud of himself. Her breasts were pushed up by the corset and her hips looked great in that skirt. and the boots made her legs look longer. "Lemme get your purse." Was all he could say.
Zoe saw the expression on his face and was thrilled. She took her purse from him and told the clerk. "Im gonna keep these on." The woman nodded and rang her up. "Oh, in that case C'mere honey." the woman said as she broke out some clear lipgloss and some black eye shadow. "There ya go. Smokey and sexy." She ruffled Zoe's hair and she returned to King. Out of the corner of her eye she saw him shake his head as he went to follow her out. She slid into the car. "Im having fun! Lets go to club tonight!" He laughed. "Riiight. I'll have to beat the guys off of you." she shrugged and let her thoughts slip out before she caught herself. "Not If Im with you." After the words left her mouth they looked at each other and had a moment. He heart thumped scared of what he would say. "True."
