Ch3 - Mall Experience
Months passed one after another. And Stephen started to be used to all of those new things in his life: the therapy sessions with his aunt, the strange vitamin pills she gave him, the tapes on the ipod that he always listened before going to bed, his new room, the continue rules of the aunt, and above all: the loneliness. With the hypnosis, session by session, he started to feel more and more comfortable with that new life, kinda enjoying some times; almost without being aware of all the little changes he was going through. But Even though he has spent several months of his new life, he barely knew other people except for his aunt, who claimed to be also his "friend". But that wasn't enough and he was counting the days to the new school start, even with a little fear for what the classmates were going to think about him.
It was the late morning when finally he woke up, after taking few minutes to put in order "his" room, made his bed gently stroking the pink silk sheets as Aunt Kat has taught him; He went to the bathroom for a shower.
Without think so much, instinctively, he took all of Chloe's bath products. For first he used a pink bottle of a vanilla perfumed shampoo on his silky blonde hair. For some reason he absolutely enjoyed that scent, keeping his eyes closed he felt the warm water running on his skinny body. With a pleased moan he took the next bottle, filling his skin with that dense liquid. After some minutes of pure pleasure, with an erection, he came out of the shower. And after he has dried his body and his longysh hair, in a brief moment he realize what he has just done. His hair was already dye blond with a pixie-like cut, now they were silky and smooth, he smelled like a girl and moreover his body was hairless from his eyes down!! With his heart beating crazy, he ran again into the shower: the bubble bath was actually an hair removal scented product! Again at the mirror he took another look at himself, with embarassment he admitted that he look....well, pretty, cute in more than one way. Still a boy, but an androgynous, delicate and feminine one. But he couldn't stop himself...the feminine perfume was insistently in his nose, his naughty wisp was tickling his forehead...the sweet sensation of his hairless thigs rubbing each other; everything felt so nice and weird. Just like in his strange dream.
With a little blush on his cheeks, he use his i-phone to take a few selfie of himself at the mirror. This only stupid thing made him so weird and embarrassed in that situation. Stephen has always thought at the selfies as a stupid kids thing, or girls at least. But in that moment he needed these, he needed to see himself in a mirror, to pose like a silly girly teen, smiling and trying on several different clothes. His little hand started to stroke his silky body...moving toward his pelvis...
*knock knock knock*
"Steph?! are you there? We have to go to the mall, remember?"
Aunt Kat said, knocking at the door
"Don't waste too time! You really need a new wardrobe before school starts, It's rather cold here!
"I know aunt...just..I'm coming, wait me downstairs!"
After Aunt Kaitlin left, Stephen took a deep breathe...
What the hell was he doing before?!
There was something wrong in him, or at least he felt like this.
"mhh...it seems like someone has developed a good taste about perfumes here!"
Aunt kat said with a little smile, while she was driving to the mall
"what?! Oh...well, no aunt..you know, the shower...I..I just.."
"you've finally discovered the Chloe's stock ehehe he has had always kind of obsession for those things, you have a great taste, just like her!"
"I...no...I was just there....and without a thought I took her things and..."
"So what about your skin?"
He suddenly looked at his hairless skinny arms, blushing and lowering his gaze
"I.. thought it was...a normal bubblebath..."
"Steph, honey, you don't have to justify yourself with me. There's nothing wrong to want to be a little bit more pretty afterall"
"..." Stephen was just too embarassed
"I bet you feel yourself more confortable now, and you like your scent. We can also buy some products and things for your own, now"
"I'm not so sure....Aunt"
"aww just don't think about it, I'm here to help you, we're a family now, remember honey?"
"yes aunt...thank you"
At the mall they went for first in several teen clothing shops, there Aunt Kat always advised Stephen about what style would fit him better. For some weird reason He wasn't able to argue or to be in disagree with the aunt's choices. He just accepted what she said and what she wanted him to wear. All of those outfit were rather androgynous, not really feminine but surely tight and stylish much more than normal boys clothing. After that, leaving the shop they passed near to one "Forever 21" shop.
"Aww lovely memories here! It was the Chloe's favourite shop, so many time I came here to buy gift and things for her, come on let's take a look here!"
She said, holding his hand, leading him at the store
After almost 20 minutes there, it was clearly that they were in an only-girls clothing store
"Ohh...I've forgot to go to Sephora, I need some things from there. Meanwhile wait me here, hun, and take a look"
Aunt Kat said, and after a brief kiss on his cheek she went.
Rubbing his cheek with an hand, Stephen started to wondering why his aunt was so kind with him that day. Thought about it for a minute and he realized that he had no wrangle with his aunt from a long time...that was weird.
"Found something cute for you?"
Confused, Stephen upped his eyes to see a pretty sales girl, looking at him with an interrogative expression
"You seem doubtful, may I help you with those leggins?"
He realized that he was in front of a leggins/skinny pants rack
"Yeah! Or maybe you prefere skinny jeans...but with your legs...well, I advice you leggins eheh"
"Oh...I..no thanks..I'm not used to wear those, and I've had enough shopping for today..." He replied with his cheek blushing fire red
"You're kidding? Never used a leggins with your silhouette...you could be a model, let me help you, I've the perfect outfit for you"
"I don't know.."
"Trust me, I'll make you stunning as hell!"
Stephen tried hard to say something, to oppose himself...
But he was only able to say:
"well....like, ok, just only one try...but nothing too...you know...too girly.."
"ooh no problem, it's called "metrosexual", nothing too extreme, just more stylish for a beauty like you! So let's start with.....
After some minute, Stephen was standing in front of the mirror in the dressing room.
He has never been more embarassed, and excited,that in that moment. At least he worn still his old all-star shoes, and fortunately he he managed to convince the sales girl to try on only a little bit skinny jeans...not a leggins. But looking at himself in the mirror...everything screamed feminine, girly, gay and stuff. His outfit included: a pure white long top, pretty tight to be honest; a short decorated leather jacket that has no zip, only several buttons with an only decorative purpose, the jacket sleeves ends almost at his elbows...leaving free his delicate and hairless arms. As accessories he worn long black necklace that showed up on his white top/shirt; a little and simple bracelet on his right wrist; several decorated and pretty feminine rings on his both hands fingers, and finally a little black girly bag decorated with tiny studs.
"Ehm...are you ready? There's your mother here"
"Steph, honey, come on, show me what you have found here, then we're ready to go"
Oh my god...ho my god....that's, that's a nightmare!! Stephen thought while he started to exit from the dressing room on his trembling legs.
After an incredibly long moment of silence, Stephen said
"so, how....how do I look...?"
while, strangely, his voice seemed a little bit more acute and high
"My god, Steph! I'm so proud of you...you look incredible!"
Aunt Kat almost screamed, holding him in a warm hug
"You...you think so...aunt?"
"Sure I do!! I've told you thousand times to put away those orrible baggy clothes of yours...and now you're ready to be perfect...stylish!"
"I agree, much better now!"
(the salesgirl was looking the scene with a big smile on her lips)
"Oh...like...thank you..but I'm not sure, and..."
"Now the final touch, up your head, honey"
without an hesitation, he obeyed to the aunt. Stephen felt a little tickling on his head, keeping his eyes closed. Aunt kat applied a bit of foundation on Stephen's skin. Then Steph felt also a sprinkle of a liquid on his neck.
"What is this?" he asked opening his eyes
"Your new perfume, silly, ehehe it surely will last more than the Chloe's one!"
Aunt Kat replied showing a pink bottle called "guess girl - eau de toilette"
"Now on your wrists, rub them and enjoy, I know you're going to love this!"
Smelling himself, Stephen had a brief time of truly pleasure, reminding him all of his new experiences of the last days
He finally said
"Great, I was sure. Now lets pay your new cute clothes and lets go!"
"Well....Thank aunt.., I'm going to change my.."
"Nonsense, Steph, you're perfect! Miss, please, can you put Stephen's old clothes in a bag for me?"
"Sure, ma'am, and please call me Lindsay...I'm a great passionate about fashion and style; I loved to help Steph...he's a lovely boy. And let me say, you're such a nice family, please come back soon!"
"Aww nice to meet you Lindsay! Me and Steph are truly grateful for your interest and help, be sure, we will meet here again really soon!.......Steph?"
"Yes....thanks Lindsay...It was a pleasure for me, hope to meet you soon.."
"forgive him...he's a little shy"
Finally they started to go toward home. But during the whole walk Stephen felt mortified with every step. His posture has changed a bit with the new outfits. The sensation of tightness of the top and the jacket; the weight of the necklace and the rings on his fingers....all of this made him aware about how strange he would looked like for the others. Practically every person they met, looked at him for a while. But he wasn't able to sustain that gaze. He felt incredibly exposed and weak, always almost at the threshold of the tears; weird and embarassed. He couldn't believe what the hell has just happened to him, not to mention that school would be started in few days. Stephen couldn't know what was waiting for him, Try as he might he couldn’t imagine what else could happen to him.
