Heath woke up to his alarm.  He kept it on the side of his bed farthest from Aimee so it didn't startle her so much.  As quickly at it came on he shut it off.  It was a Saturday morning, but with his work he was so used to getting up early anyway.  He turned over in bed to check on Aimee.  He could only make out a silhouette from the curtains around her canopy bed.  She was so small he couldn't really tell her apart from the sheets on her bed in the dim morning light.  He saw little to no movement so he assumed she was still asleep.

He took a few minutes to himself just lying in bed.  He had lived alone before Aimee, but now he appreciated a little time to himself.  Not that she was a bother or anything, but everyone needs to be alone to their thoughts once in a while.  He played through the previous day in his mind.

As he scratch his chin, he felt the stubble. Should probably shave, he thought to himself.  He let out a deep yawn before he started to get up.  As soon as his feet touched the floor he remembered.  Today was Halloween, and a co-worker had invited him to his party tonight.  He rubbed the side of his face.  What was he going to wear? He didn't have anything ready, and let alone Aimee.  Would she want to come with, and dress up?  Was she familiar with Halloween?  He rubbed his eyes with the palms of his hands, and decided to just take a shower.

Slowly he got to his feet, and headed toward the bathroom.  He took extra care to be quiet as he passed Aimee.  Just because he like to get up early, didn't mean that she had to as well.  Carefully he closed the washroom door behind him, and got ready to take a shower.
~~~
Aimee awoke to the bathroom door closing.  She stretched, and let out a long yawn.  Figures, he hates waking me up in the morning. Still it is nice to get up around the same time he does.  She parted the curtains on her bed, and got to her feet.  Soon she could hear the water running in the shower.  Well that answers the question of where he is.

She stood up, and stretched some more.  With Heath busy in the washroom she had no qualms about changing in the room.  She went through her dresser, and picked out a top with a pair of pants.  Soon she was all changed, and ready for the day.  She turned back to her bed, and started to fix the sheets.  It would probably be some time until Heath was done with his shower.  She sat back down on her made bed, and took a look out the windows.  The morning sun just raising over the horizon.

It was pretty to see the colors of the sun rise, but this was all she could really do until Heath came back.  She was sort of on top of a night stand, and it was a bit bothersome for her to got down by herself.  She pondered for a minute.  Heath's bed was just on the other side of the night stand.  She had made the jump before, but it was a bit scary none the less.  In the end she just laid back on the bed, and rested her eyes.
~~~
Heath finished up his shower, and changed in the washroom.  When he was all done he slowly opened the door.  Looking at Aimee's bed he could see her still asleep.  He kneeled down beside the nightstand, and parted the curtains a bit with his finger.  She was there, but her bed was all made.  On top of that she was dressed too.  Gently he nudged her shoulder, and gently called to her.  "Aimee, you ready to get up now?"
~~~
She felt something, and soon heard Heath calling to her.  Turning to face him, she slowly came too.
~~~
Looking at her just waking up was very adorable.  He liked being able to see her like this, and know he was the only one.  "Any requests for breakfast?"
~~~
She rubbed her eyes, and responded with a yawn "How about those crapes?"
~~~
With a smile he responded, "No problem.  Would you like to stay here, or come down with me while I make them?"
~~~
She sat up, and stretched some more.  "I'll go down with you.  I was up, but fell back asleep."
~~~
He put out his hand, and scooped her up.  "I assumed something like that happened.  I don't think you could make your bed in your sleep."  He chuckled a bit, as he brought her closer to his chest.
~~~
Once she was against his chest she leaned on him.  He always smelled so good right after a shower, and his clothes usually smelled good in general.  It wasn't long until they reached the kitchen, and Heath placed her on the table.
~~~
When she was settled on the table he walked over to the fridge, and started to get everything ready to make the crapes.  Once he had nearly everything prepared he stole a glance at Aimee.  She was looking right at him, but quickly looked away like nothing had happened.  He grinned knowing that she was watching him.
~~~
She had been watching him cook in her half awake daze, but when he looked back at her she turned away.  Why was she just staring at him like that?  She liked it when he cooked for her, but she still shouldn't be doing that.  No sooner had Heath come back with the crapes, and placed them on the table.  He cut off a slice, and put it on the human size plate he had for her.

She took the plate, and started to dig in.  Man this breakfast food is always so good. She happily ate to her fill.
~~~
He waited till they were both nearly done eating before he spoke.  "Aimee, do you know what day it is today?"
~~~
She paused, and thought for a moment.  She had only been here a little over a month, and couldn't really think what kind of day today could be.
~~~
Seeing that she was having a bit of trouble coming up with what day it was he answered his own question.  "Today is Halloween."
~~~
A bit surprised she responded, "Oh, really?  I knew it was coming up, but I never look at a calender too much."
~~~
"Well, I was invited to a Halloween party tonight that I just remembered.  I don't want to leave you all alone here if you don't want to."
~~~
"Why don't you just take me with then?" She said with a smile.
~~~
He hadn't really thought she'd be up for that.  "You'd like to come with?  You probably won't know most of the people there.  Also I don't know if they planned on people bringing any humans a long."
~~~
"Your their boss, plus you brought me to your work already.  They should know about me for the most part."  She looked back down to her plate.  "I'd also rather be with you at a party, than being here alone.  Or worse having you miss a party just to be here with me."  This was how she felt, but she could feel her face get warm from blushing.
~~~
"I'm okay bringing you with, just...the people there will most likely be dressed up.  I didn't know if you'd be comfortable with that."
~~~
She looked back up to him, "I'm sure I'll be fine.  Plus I've never been to a party before."  She smiled, "Do I get to wear a costume too?"
~~~
"Well if you like we can get one.  Did you have anything in mind?"
~~~
"I wasn't really thinking about it until just now.  Could we go to a store or something so I can have a better idea?"
~~~
In a bit of a sad tone, "I'd rather not take you into one of those stores.  The people there won't be the most respectful, if you know what I mean."
~~~
"I guess, but how will I know what I can dress up as?"  She tried to picture anything she might be able to put together from things around the house.  "I don't want to be a tissue paper ghost or toilet paper mummy.  Those don't sound like fun."
~~~
He raised an eyebrow,  "So you have thought about this before?"
~~~
A bit shyly, "Well they show that sort of stuff in movies.  I'm not completely sheltered you know."  She stuck her tongue out playfully at him.
~~~
He thought for a second about how to get her a costume.  An idea popped into his head, "Just hold on, I think I have something that'll work."

He got up, and walked toward a pile of magazines he had near the door.  He usually got plenty in the mail, but most were just adds.  After sifting through them he came back with one.  "I started to get these in the mail after ordering some things for you.  I think there's a....Here we go."  He flipped to a section that had a bunch of human costumes in it, and placed it in front of her."
~~~
A bit confused she looked up at him, "If your party is today, how are you going to order them?"
~~~
"Luckily their store is close by.  I can't guarantee they'll have everything in stock, but they usually have most of what is in their catalog."
~~~
Aimee began to look over the magazine. Some of the pictures were a bit revealing.  Short skirts, and tops revealing cleavage, this was not what she was looking for.  She turned the page, and found some other costumes.  It seemed to have everything from cats, to devils, and vampires.  She kept looking thought until she found something that caught her eye.  It was an angel costume with these huge wings, and a white gown that went just past the knees.  She couldn't keep her eyes off of it.  "I think I found one."
~~~
He looked over to the one she was pointing at.  A part of him was a bit disappointed that she didn't pick one of the other costumes, but he knew she'd be more comfortable in a less revealing costume.  "Alright, I can see if they have that one.  Do you have a second choice if they are out of that one?"
~~~
"Hum, maybe this one as a second choice."  She pointed to picture of a human with purple butterfly wings on.
~~~
She must have a things for wings today.  "Sure, I'll go to the store shortly, and pick them up.  Shouldn't take me long."
~~~
"Can't I come with?" She asked.
~~~
A bit ashamed, "I'd rather you not go to a human store.  I just have a feeling that something bad might happen if you see all those humans in cages, and all the accessories they have for them."  Plus he had to shop for a costume of his own.
~~~
She hugged herself a bit with her arms, and in a slightly depressed voice said, "I guess it is better if I stay here.  I can also take a proper shower while your gone."
~~~
"Sorry if that got you upset, but I'll be right back."  He began to clean up the plates.  Once he was done he glance down at Aimee, and scooped her up.
~~~
She didn't mind being picked up like that.  It's not like she could easily walk back to the room all by herself.  Once they approached the room he placed her on the bed.
~~~
"I know you can easily get down from the bed.  I just don't like placing you on the floor while I'm still here.  I'm going to take a minute getting my things ready, and let me know if you want to be moved before I leave."
~~~
"I should be fine here."  She watched as Heath got his coat, and shoes one.  He was just about to leave when he asked with his eyes one more time if she was okay.  She responded in a playful manor, "I'm fine, now go big boy."

Heath said goodbye, and closed the bedroom door behind him.  No sooner did she slide down the side of the bed on the sheets to the ground.  She walked over to the washroom, and got cleaned up in the human sized shower Heath had set up for her.  She took her time enjoying the quietness, and the repetitive noise of the water running.  She was used to being around giants, and all, but once in a while it was nice to not have a booming voice, and earth quaking footsteps walking around.

When she was done she dried off, and got dressed.  When Heath would take a shower the room would steam up, but it didn't do that at all with her.  She was easily able to see herself in the mirror, and did her hair nicely for the costume she was going to wear.  She had to admit she was quite excited about it.  She had never been to a party before, let alone a Halloween party.

It wasn't long before she heard the front door open and close signaling Heath's return.  She decided to stay in the washroom since she was still working a bit on her hair.
~~~
Heath cautiously opened the door to his room.  In a soft voice he called out, "Aimee?".

He looked down, and didn't see nor hear her near the door.  Cautiously he stepped in, and set the bag with the costumes in it on the bed.  Since Aimee probably knew he was home he knew she wouldn't be stupid enough to be under foot.  Maybe he could give his costume a little test drive before he handed her, her costume.

He stepped into his closet, and changed.
~~~
She could have sworn she heard Heath open the door to his bedroom.  After she was satisfied with her hair she walked out.  Heath was nowhere to be found as she peaked out from the bathroom.  She tried calling out, "Heath?"
~~~
Heath heard her call out, but stayed quiet.  His costume was mostly black allowing him to easily hide in the closet with the door still open.
~~~
Aimee could have sworn she heard him before, but now she didn't hear anything.  She walked around a bit searching for him or at least the possible source of the noise from earlier.
~~~
Heath soon saw Aimee walk near the closet.  As soon as she was in sight he took a step toward her.
~~~
Aimee was very confused that Heath wasn't home.  She continued to search for him until she felt the rumble of a footstep.  She turned around expecting Heath, but it wasn't.  A giant man with slicked back hair, black cape, a suite, and fangs looked down at her.  Her knees buckled, and she let out a scream from the shock.  It was like one of those vampire monsters in those movies.  She thought they were all make believe.

As soon as she had power over her legs again she ran toward the bed in hopes of hiding under it.
~~~
Heath saw that he scared Aimee much more than he anticipated.  He took out the fake fangs, and tried to calm her down.  "Aimee, it's me in a costume."
~~~
She heard Heath's familiar voice, and stopped.  Heath was right behind her with the fangs in his hand.  He had really scared her.  She fell to her knees and cried a bit from the shock.
~~~
In an attempt to comfort her he scooped her up, and said "Hey, hey it's me.  I'm sorry if I went too far."
~~~
She was lightly crying, but it still effected her voice, "Yes, you went to far.  In that sort of situation I can't defend myself at all.  I'm not scared of giants, but giant monsters are another story."
~~~
Concerned, "Many people are going to be dressed up at the party.  Are you going to be okay with that?"
~~~
She was starting to calm down, "Well when I know it's fake it's fine, I just really didn't expect it.  Also you'll be with me at the party so I don't have to worry."
~~~
He stroked her back as he walked toward the bed.  Softly he said, "I'm glad you still trust me with the whole Halloween thing after that."  He sat down on the bed, and pulled out the costume.  "So here you go my little angel."
~~~
It was still in the packaging, but looked exactly like in the magazine.  She turned to Heath, and excitedly asked, "Can you take it out of the plastic so I can try it on now?"
~~~
"Sure, it's Halloween after all.  Feel free to wear it all day if you like."  He put her down on the bed, and used both hands to open the plastic sleeve holding the costume.  He then laid it on the bed next to her.
~~~
She gestured for him to turn around which he did.  Once she was out of his sight she put the dress on.  The wings seemed to have shoulder straps similar to a backpack so it was relatively easy to put on.  She spun around testing the dress. "Okay, you can look now."
~~~
Heath turned around to see Aimee.  She did truly look like an angel.  Her fair skin, and bare-feet against the white sheets on his bed.  It almost made her glow.  He wanted to stare more, but tried to keep a calm face.  "Looks good on you."
~~~
Proud of herself, "Well then that settles it, I'm wearing it to the party."
~~~
"Fine by me.  How about I make some lunch, and we get ready to head out?"
~~~
"Sounds good"

Before she knew it, it was time to get going for the party.  Heath got his things ready, and carried her to the car.  As usual she sat in his lap, and in no time they were there.

As Heath started to get out she asked, "Hey, do you think I could sit on your shoulder during the party?"  Heath looked at her in a questioning way.  "Well, that way you'd have your hands free, and I'd look like one of those angel figures on someone's shoulder.  You know like in movies sometimes when someone is trying to make a decision?"
~~~
Heath now understood what she was thinking of.  I would be good to have his hands free.  He smiled as he put her on his shoulder.  "Not a bad idea my dear."
~~~
He probably didn't mean it to sound so personal, but it still made her blush a bit.  Luckily he couldn't see her like this.
~~~
Heath walked in the door, and was immediately greeted by the host.  He introduced himself as Mike, and said that there weren't any other humans at the party, but as long as he stuck with him she should be alright.  He apologized for not having any human amenities, but figured she should be able to make due.  Heath thanked him and walked inside.  He greeted many other people he knew from work.
~~~
Aimee remained relatively silent since she didn't know many of the people.  She had been to his work before, but honestly she couldn't' remember so many names when she visited.  She gradually became bored as Heath seemed to sorta forget about her.
~~~
Heath eventually sat down on the couch with some co-workers.  He wanted to ask Aimee how she was doing, but it seemed at every turn someone wanted to talk to him.
~~~
 She was able to lean against the back of the couch a bit from his shoulder.  She was quite bored, and kinda regretted going to the party.  On TV they always make them seem so fun.

Suddenly she felt something cover her mouth as she was pulled back onto the top part of the couch.  She was very surprised, but when she turned to face what grabbed her it was a male human dressed up as a devil.  "Shhh, we're going to have some fun."  He let go of her, and grabbed on to the curtain behind the couch.  She returned with a questioning look.

He gestured for her to follow him.  She turned back to Heath, and figured anything would be less boring then this.  Also she didn't really get to hang around with other humans.  She grabbed a piece of curtain, and slid down with the other human.

Once they were on the ground he introduced himself.  "My name's John.  I came with someone else, but got quite bored.  I figured we'd play some tricks on the giants."

John looked to be around her age, but she had to admit she wasn't used to talking to other humans.  She put out her hand to shake his, "Well, my name is Aimee. Now why did you grab me just then?"

John answered, "Well you looked bored out of your skull.  Not to mention you are quite a looker."

She blushed at the complement.  "But I don't want to upset anyone, I'm just a guest here.  Also most giants don't treat humans that well.  I actually feel better being with the one I came with."

John patted her on the back, "Now come on, your going to pass up having some fun with one of your own kind?"

"Well...I?"

"I thought so, lets get going."  He grabbed her hand, and guided her under the couch.  They walked till they were in the kitchen.  Luckily there weren't that many giants there, and they were okay as long as they stuck close to the walls.

"I'm going to assume your a good climber."

"Well I'm okay, and can get from here to there."

John said, "Okay, see that phone chord?  We are going to climb that, and get up on the counter."

Aimee was starting to like the idea of being with someone her own size.  "Well okay, but you go first.  I don't want you looking up my dress."

Sarcastically, "Oh boy my whole plan ruined."  He grabbed a hold of the chord, and climbed up to the counter.

Aimee was close behind.  Once they were both up there John said, "Okay so we are just going to walk over by those treats there.  Just follow my lead."  He winked at her, and off he went.

She followed closely behind, and they were on either side of a cupcake tray as a female giant seemed to be debating what to eat.

John got close to her, and started talking.  "You can afford a cupcake.  You've been watching your figure since summer, and I'm sure you deserve it."

John signaled to Aimee to come up, and say something.  She was a bit nervous, but managed something.  "Well the vegetable tray will certainly be more guilt free.  A moment on the lips a life time on the hips."

The female giant just shook her head, and walked away from them.  John came up to Aimee, "See this is better than just sitting on that giant's shoulder."

"I don't think I'm comfortable doing this.  I just don't want to anger one of them."

"I do pranks all the time, and I next to never get caught."

Just then a giant came up, and snatched one in each hand.  "John, not you again.  How many times am I going to have to teach you a lesson."  He turned to Aimee. "And it looks like you have a friend this time too.  Your not going to cause any trouble here.  I'm going to deal with you two."

The giant found an empty pot with a lid on the kitchen counter.  He roughly dropped the two in there, and closed the lid.  "I'll deal with you once the party is done."

They could feel the pot shift, and be roughly placed down. Aimee started to yell at John, "This is all your fault.  Now I don't know what's going to happen, and I'm stuck here."

John, "Now come on, it can't be that bad.  You need to live on the edge a bit."

"No I don't I was fine."  She slid down the side of the pot until she was seated.  The metal was cold against her legs, and it was pitch black in there.  She didn't know where she was or if Heath would be able to find her.  She did her best, but started to break down as bad thoughts clouded her mind.

John sat down next to her. "It's going to be okay, I've gotten out of similar binds here.  I don't have an owner.  I live in the walls of buildings around here just sneaking what I need away from these giants."  He placed his hand on her thigh, and started to slowly move it under her dress.

She screamed, "Stop it! I'm freaked out enough as is.  I don't need to be stuck with some pervert as well."
~~~
There was finally a break in the conversation for Heath.  He turned to Aimee, "Hey you doing okay? Sorry everyone seems to want to talk."

Unfortunately he couldn't get a good view of Aimee with her on his shoulder.  He reached his hand up to pick her up, but she wasn't there.  He turned to see the back of the couch, and his lap.  She was nowhere to be found.  His heart sank, he couldn't let anything happen to her.

Hastily he asked the people around him, "Has anyone seen Aimee?  She was the human dressed as an angel with me."  All he got was shrugs.  No one really had paid attention to her.
~~~
John seemed to have backed off for a while, but occasionally he tried to make advances.  Aimee had resorted to just screaming at him every time he tried something.  She was stressed out, and this John guy didn't make things any better.
~~~
Heath was now on his hands, and knees on the floor calling for Aimee.  He had no luck.  About an hour passed, and slowly people started to leave the party.  He was worried that someone had kidnapped her or even hurt her.  He continued his search, but with every passing moment his mind kept thinking of the worst for her.  It had maybe been another hour, and only 4 people remained at the party. 

Heath ended up just waiting in the kitchen.  He didn't know what to do.  He had lost Aimee.  She meant so much to him, how could he let this happen.  Suddenly he herd a metallic clang coming from a cabinet.
~~~
Aimee had no idea how long she had been locked up with his wacko.  He was dead set on getting his hands on her.  When he tried to kiss her that was the last straw.  She managed to punch his face, and it hit the side of the pot making a loud noise.  It echoed horribly within the pot, and she covered her ears.

Suddenly a bright light came in, and all she could think about was if she was done for.  Then a hand reached in, and grabbed her.  She struggled as best as she could, but to no avail.  She began to cry out of fear.
~~~
Heath had found an oddly placed pot in the cabinet.  He opened the lid to find Aimee, and another human inside.  The other human seemed to be unconscious.  Swiftly he picked up Aimee, but she seemed to be fighting him.  With his other hand he stoked what he could of her back.  The wings were in the way, but she stopped struggling.
~~~
She looked up.  Her vision blurry from crying.
~~~
Heath cooed, "Aimee, it's me"
~~~
She cried out, "I was scared you wouldn't find me." She hugged his thumb tightly.
~~~
He lifted her up to his face, and softly said, "I'd never leave without you."

He looked back down.  "Now who else is that in the pot with you?"
~~~
With a deep angry tone, "Some jerk who was just trying to make out with me.  You can just leave him here.  I don't care in the least."
~~~
Wow, he really must have done something to upset her.  She usually stands up for other humans.  He lifted the human out of the pot, and placed him beside it on the cabinet.  "Why is he unconscious?  Did he pass out?"
~~~
"Let's just say I have a mean right hook.  Can we go home now?"
~~~
"Of course".

Heath began to walk back to his car with Aimee in hand.  He wouldn't know what to do with himself if he had lost her.  He sat down in the car, and pulled her in close.  "I'm glad to have you back safe, and sound."

John should be glad he was knocked unconscious. I don't think Heath would've given him any mercy.

Lol, yeah.  He'd only have snarky remarks if he saw Heath.
