You were getting ready to go to the mall with one of your school friends, [f/n]. Since this is a reader-insert story, of course we have to describe what you're wearing in great detail. Just as in most other times when you went out in public, your outfit had a character theme- a kind of casual cosplay. And as usual, you figured [f/n] wouldn't be too happy about it... But hey, at least you weren't going out as a full-fledged, hardcore cosplay! She really hated that. That was why going places with Kiku was so awesome... But after he had arrived, you barely did anything with the other girls anymore, so you figured that this little Kiku-free excursion would be good for you.
The particular outfit you had in mind for today wasn't especially outlandish as themed outfits went. It was deceivingly simple: a turquoise-blue camisole, faded jean shorts, a dangly seashell necklace, and your blue converse. You sprinkled a little glitter on your cheeks (which was not normally the type of accessorizing you favored, but it was part of the charade) and finally, the crowning touch that pulled the entire otherwise unassuming outfit together: the hat.
Grabbing your purse, you stepped out into the living room, where Kiku was curled up on the couch with a book. He glanced at you, and his eyes widened.
"Ah! Mijumaru!" (1) he blurted, closing his book with a snap.
You giggled, blushing a little, and tugged on the bobbles of your aviator-style Oshawott hat. "Yup~! Would you mind telling Mom I'm leaving?" Conveniently, the mall was located pretty much directly across the street from your neighborhood, so you usually walked straight there.
Kiku opened his mouth to reply, and then hesitated. You looked at him questioningly, and he slowly took out his phone.
"P-prease... _____... may I... take a picture or two before you reave?"
He looked pleadingly at you with those huge, dark, puppy-dog eyes of his... oh gosh, how could you possibly resist those? And holy derpfish, his accent... his adorable accent... as he repeated a final heartfelt "Prease?", you nearly melted.
"O-okay..." you relented. Kiku flashed you a grateful smile and immediately began snapping away.
"Getto daze," (2) he murmured, examining the photo captured on his phone with a stalkerish glint in his eye.
