meetup-themed ana imagine ,':D
this is my first one of these ajksgjag pls be gentle
The November air is chilly as you slink out of the car, and you pull your sweater tighter around you. Your frostbitten fingers shake with excitement and nerves- you'd been waiting for this day forever.
"Whoa- is that you?"
Your head snaps up. They're staring right at you, awed.
"Hi," you get out, before they're wrapping you in a hug so tight your collarbones might crack. They laugh into your ear, and you feel your feet lift ever-so-slightly off the ground.
"My God, I can nearly pick you up," they grin, gripping the sharp edges of your hip bones. Abruptly, their face goes serious. "You look so... different from the pictures."
You frown at that.
"What do you mean?"
"Well," they fumble, seeming to regret saying anything, "you're so... pretty in person, I don't know."
Their tone is indistinguishable- almost jealous, you think, but immediately scrap that. They wouldn't feel that way towards you; would they?
"Let me go, I'm suffocating," you mutter, ignoring their half-compliment, but they don't miss the light flush of your cheekbones.
You stare at each other for a moment. You both had been dreaming of this moment forever, it barely feels real. You silently thank your past self for calming down and losing a few lbs- the thought of spending this meetup worrying about your now long-gone stomach fat or bloated cheeks makes you nauseous.
No, you get to spend this trip together, you get to really be present. No worrying about them seeing your jaw at a bad angle, or the embarrassment of not fitting into mall clothes, or looking dumb during karaoke; just you, relaxed, enjoying something you'd been waiting for for so long.
And, the jealous stares you two attract while thrifting is nice, too.
