My name is Brad, Janice and I have been friends since kindergarten, I have had a massive crush on her since grade 5, she likes me as a friend but she made it clear she didn't want to take it any further, that is until she saw her boyfriend, (the schools quarterback, Roger) kissing the head cheerleader, she was devastated, she turned to her best friend, me, we kissed a few times and went to a few movies together, but it just didn't happen for her, her words not mine, no spark so to speak, but I live in hope and I would never let her down like all the others, I have always been there for her, That was 3 years ago, Janice has had a few boyfriends since then and every time they have let her down I've been there to pick up the pieces, anyway you get the picture.

Last November (six months ago) we went to a comic-con (dont judge me) Jan was really excited when we came back she immediately started planning to go to the next one, of course she asked me if I would go with her, it was in San Fransisco, so we would have to stay over night in a hotel, this to me was a chance for me to get closer to her, of course I jumped at the opportunity, we went to a costume shop, and had a great day trying on different costumes after a couple of hours Jan still couldn't decide whether she wanted a Batgirl costume or a Smurfette costume, I told her to bring them both and she can decide when she gets there, I told I hadnt decided and I would come back another time, I knew exactly what I was going to wear but I didnt want her to know until we got to the comic-con. (He Man) it was a full suit which made me look bigger than I was, I have always been small, Jan and I are about the same size unless she's in heels then she's taller than me

In the 6 months between the shows I had grown my hair down to my shoulders it was already blonde, perfect for by He Man costume, she would always ask me what I was going as, and same as usual I broke down and told her, she thought it was a great idea, we got to the hotel and I made an appointment to have my hair cut like He Man the day before the show, I thought it looked a bit like a girls cut so wanted to hold off until the last moment, when we arrived at the hotel we hung our costumes in the bathroom hoping the steam from our shower would take out any creases that happened due to packing, We did some touristy things and then on the third day Jan was sitting reading a magazine when there was a knock on the door, I was in the bathroom so Jan answered the door, and was completely surprised, it was Roger the high school quarter back that dumped her three years ago, he explained that it wasn't his idea to dump Jan, but his family were moving to San Fran to open a hotel and he couldn't stay with Jan, his mother was adamant, "Don't go breaking that girls heart with a long distance relationship, it will end in tears" she said, "make it a clean break she will thank you for it later."

I heard everything, and was expecting the tears to be flowing this afternoon, I thought it was strange she didn't mention me in the bathroom, but then fate stepped in and I knocked over a bottle of perfume, "Is someone here with you? Do you have a man here? he sounded very offended, and very suspicious, I heard Jan say, "No its my cousin we are going to comic-con together", my heart sank, she didn't even mention I was a man, it was obvious she was trying to mend fences and a man in her room would ruin any hope of getting back with Roger, so I did what any good friend would do, I blued up my face, put on some mascara, lipstick, put on the blue man suit, stuffed Jan's bra with some socks, zipped up the white dress and white shoes and gloves, and put the floppy hat on over the wig, and walked into the room saying in my best girlie voice,

"So what do you think Jan do I make a good Smurfette?  "I'm so sorry Jan I didn't know you had company"

Roger asked, "Who is this Jan?''

Jan didn't miss a beat, she said, "I told you its my cousin we are going to the comic-con show in town"

I held out my white glove and said "I'm Smurfette how do you do?"

He burst out laughing and said it was his pleasure to meet me, then he asked Jan if she remembered Tom his brother, of course she remembered him she said,

"Well, we are going out tomorrow night, would you and Smurfette like to join us for dinner? Jan took one look at me, I was shaking my head but she accepted anyway. As Roger was leaving he was looking around at my clothes on the floor, "Are you sure there is no man with you there seems to be a lot of men's clothes around? I could see Jan was in shock, I jumped in saying, "Those clothes were here when we arrived, you should check on your maid service, its pretty bad when they don't clean up after the last person has left." Roger picked up all my clothes apologising as he went from room to room, then he said, "The guy even left his comic-con costume here, I'm sure he will be back for this, I'm so sorry, this wont happen again

"Oh and by the way, feel free to use the salon in the hotel, no charge, its on me, whatever you want."

I was furious with Jan for what could have been the first time ever, "I wont do it Jan, I only came out dressed like this so he wouldn't think you had a man in here, look at me, he's taken all my clothes and I look ridiculous,"

"Actually I think you look pretty good, and now you made Roger take all your clothes you don't have much choice, we can do something with your real hair, I will help you pick something out and help you with your make up, thank goodness you didn't get your hair cut before you came, its fate Brad. by the way nice job walking in those shoes", "You haven't done this before have you?" We both burst out laughing at that, I couldn't be mad at Jan for long, but I was dreading going out dressed as a girl with a man, so much for me dressing as "He man" more like "She man" really.

The salon was a nightmare, they plucked me, pricked me, (Yes I got my ears pierced) legs and arms hair free, I told them it was for comic-con, they said they had a lot of unusually requests, they didn't even ask if I was a man or a woman, I had my nails painted, all on Rogers bill, that kind of made it worth it, but when they had finished and I looked in the mirror I wasn't laughing then. " I couldn't believe what they had done with my make up and hair, "Six months it took me to grow it and look how I ended up."

"Ok we need to get you in a dress, something sparkly that will distract him, how about this"

Hmmm not what I was expecting to hear when we set off."

"Oh Brad, you look amazing with those earrings and that bracelet"

"Im sorry about the shoes, I only brought one pair of heels but at least they match the dress"

"Thank you Jan, that was my biggest worry that they wouldn't match the dress, are you for real?"

 Jan seems like a bit of a "user", if you ask me. 

 And, I could see why Tom would think his original haircut idea seemed girly-looking. Adam WAS wearing a hairstyle that on Earth would come to be thought of as a girl's haircut, i.e. a page-boy.

Jan loved Roger, she was very upset when they broke up, now she has a chance at real happiness, that can blind people as to how they are treating their real friends, 

Well Tom certainly has gone girlie haircut now, I think hes second guessing the whole He Man idea.

It is a pretty dress though I hope Roger doesnt get any ideas?????

 True. I may need to re-read this one, as I might have missed the part where Jan notices she has a real shot at being happy. BTW, I don't have a very high opinion of Roger, either. Regardless of his justifications, he shouldn't have cheated. If you want/need to "see" other people (and, you don't have some sort of "open" relationship), for whatever reason, break up, FIRST.

 Yeah, I'll bet ;) !

 Hmmm. I wonder what sorts of ideas he might get? It might also be a good idea to watch out for the other Tom, too. Thus far, we've no indication as to his character.
