With Hazel in her arms Mackenzie bounced into her sister's room. "Morning sunshine!" She grinned tossing the pup on the bed.
Esme looked up at her sister, still groggy from sleep. A giggle left her lips and she pat Hazel on the head, smiling fondly at the wiggling puppy. “Morning to you too.” She looked up at her sister “How are you so awake already?”
"I went for a run." She smiled and flopped onto the bed. "I also made breakfast if you want some, sleepy head."
"Look at you, getting stuff done before I even think about moving." She grinned at Mackenzie, hoisting the puppy into her arms before speaking again, "You’re the best sister, yes I want some."
Mackenzie chuckled, climbing into bed beside Esme. “Yeah…don’t get used to it.”
"I’ll do my best!" Esme grinned, stretching her legs out.
Mack grinned and pat Hazel on the head, scratching behind her ears. “Got any plans today?”
Of course this would happen to her. First night in her new apartment and she gets locked out. Not only locked out but locked out in nothing but a t-shirt and her underwear. She had only stepped outside to set something down, but didn't catch the door in time. "Shit, shit, shit." Mackenzie ran a hand through her hair, when she heard a voice behind her. /Great./
Walli had been about to go meet up with Dick, stretching and yawning as she pulled herself off of the sofa and into a pair of jeans and shirt. Slower then usual because…well, moving in places was tiring. The girl walked out of the door, heading down the hall only to stop when her eyes caught sight of—
“Flash Panties?” The speedster’s voice was filled with mirth, eyes roaming over the other girl as a slight chuckle escaped her lips.
Fuck. Mackenzie turned to face the voice her cheeks as red as the other girl’s hair, hands scrambling to pull her t-shirt down over her exposed underwear.
"I uh— " She bit her bottom lip, like she always did when she couldn’t find the words to say. "— I got locked out. Can - can you help me?" Mack let out a sigh of defeat and pushed her hair from her face.
"Mother! Your pride and joy is home!" Mackenzie walked through the front door, suitcases in hand. It was her first time being home since leaving for school and a lot seemed to have changed in herself and her small hometown. She had kept the ring in her nose and the fact that her once long hair was now just above her shoulders a secret from her parents, so that she could see their reactions when she walked through the door.
"In here," Belle called from the kitchen where she was cooking. Henry was visiting as well as Mackenzie and they were hosting a large family (and extended family) dinner. She sighed as a cry came from upstairs followed by a curse, both were amplified by the baby monitor on the counter.
"Your brother is sick—-" Belle began, but once she caught sight of her daughter she paused. "Well—- you look different."
She chuckled and hugged her mother back, taking in the familiar warmth and smell that enveloped her. “I love it.” She smiled, reaching up to touch it herself. “I was kinda iffy at first but after I chopped it off I fell in love.”
Belle nodded. Mackenzie was an adult now and as long as she wasn’t hurting anyone and was happy, then Belle was happy. “Why don’t you go put your things in your room and come back to help me with dinner,” she said. “Just be warned. Your brother is fussy and your father is in a bad mood.”
"Thanks for the warning." She chuckled gathering her bags and heading to the stairs. "I’m going to change." Mackenzie called as she walked into her room.
