A supportive girlfriend

By Elizabeth James

My name is Kelly well actually it is Kelly James Johnson which wouldn’t normally be bad accept for my size. By the time I in the 6 grade I was as tall as I was going to get, 5’5” tall and puberty never really hit me. By the time I started 10 grade I still looked like I was 12 years old, no body hair, and no facial hair it was hard growing up. So when I started 10 grade I started going by my middle name James as with my size I didn’t want a name that could be male or female. High School was hard but I made it through, imagine being a boy that was smaller than half the girls in the school. I did 2 years of community college before transferring to a 4 year college. I led a lonely life as it seemed all the girls wanted the tall, strong, athletic guys.

It was the start of my last year that I met Jill, she was a beautiful girl, long blonde hair, 5’6” tall and looked like a model. I am not even sure why but she sat down across from me in the library one day and soon we were talking. She didn’t seem to even notice my size and we became friend and soon we were dating which was a little hard as I was an inch shorter than her and more than once people mistook me for her little brother. At Christmas we started talking and to save money we decided I should move into her apartment as it was a little bigger than mine and closer to school. I was thrilled. It was New Year’s night and we had had way too much to drink and after midnight we got talking and I don’t know why I asked her why she wanted to be with a guy as small as me one people mistook for her little brother. As soon as I asked it I regretted it I mean why risk it and point it out to her. As I said we had both been drinking. She looked at me and said I hope you don’t take this wrong or think bad of me but she did not find tall strong men attractive and she hated body hair or facial hair on men. She told me that for a while she thought she was strange that way. I felt better as she actually did like me for me.

We talked for a couple hours that night till we both stumbled to bed, I am not sure if I was helping her or she helped me but somehow we made it to the bed. In the morning when we woke up somehow I was wearing her nightie and she had on my pajamas. We both got a good laugh out of that. A couple nights later we were talking at dinner and Jill brought that night up and asked me if I had ever thought about dressing as a girl which caught me off guard. I said no as I really had never thought about it even though in high school I got called a girl a lot. She smiled at me and told me I would make a passible girl which no male really wants to hear but before I could say anything she just told me to forget it as she was just thinking about getting into clubs to go dancing. You see she has a fake ID which is how we got the liquor for new year’s but there was no way I could pass for 21 even with a fake id. Now the funny thing is even though I had never thought of it before now it was stuck in my mind you know how someone mentions a song and then you can’t get it out of your head.

Well the next night I brought it up and told her that since she had mentioned it I couldn’t get the thought out of my mind. I didn’t think I could pass as a girl and I knew I wouldn’t have the courage to go out as a girl but I was curious as to what I would look like. Now I must ad my hair is a little long as I wear it in a ponytail I guess trying to look a little cool. Jill told me we would try it this Saturday and see what I looked like.

Saturday came and I was a little nervous, Jill had me shower and wash my hair with her shampoo and conditioner, when she combed it out my light brown hair was just to my shoulders. She used some curlers and a curling iron and actually gave me a pretty feminine hair style. Then she did my makeup, eye shadow, mascara, blush and finally a red lipstick. I could not believe how feminine I looked. She then gave me a pair of her panties pink and a pink bra which she padded out and then one of her dresses which was just a little tight seems even though she is an inch taller I weigh just a little more and then a pair of her heels which actually fit me well. The end result was I looked completely like a girl. I don’t think even my own mom would recognize me if she was still alive. I spent the weekend as a girl and I actually had fun. Jill tried to get me to go out with her but I just couldn’t leave the apartment like this. I know I would pass but there was just something that wouldn’t let me do it.

It is funny as all weekend Jill called me by my first name Kelly. So this is how it went for a while. On weekends we were staying home I would dress as a girl and I was Kelly and when I was not dressed as a girl I was James. Summer came and we graduated and I got to meet Jill’s mom Helen. I only met her briefly at Graduation as she lived in another state. Turns out Jill had not told her she was living with her boyfriend. She told her she lived with Kelly and was dating me James. Her mom was only there for the weekend and had a hotel room so it was easy to keep up the lie as Jill told her mom Kelly was away visiting her family.

Well after graduation neither one of us found good jobs. I turned 21 still looking like a little kid and Jill was turning 21 on August 2. Jill had put in an application in Las Vegas for a cocktail waitress at a big casino and they had offered her a job starting on August 10th and as I didn’t have a job here we decided to move there and see if things were better.

Now are plan was to fly to Las Vegas on Sunday morning August 8th, We don’t have much to move, a TV some dishes and clothes so what we can’t take on the plain we will just ship down there by FED Ex to the Hotel we are going to stay at till we find an apartment. The only issue was money but Jill’s mom Helen let us use her credit card to pay for the airline tickets. Now with this she knew we intended to live together there she still didn’t know we had been living together for a half year already. Now as it started getting closer we both got a little nervous and wondered if we had made the right choice which I guess is normal but we were going ahead no matter what.

Now I was thinking about my weekends as Kelly, I know that is a strange thought but I realized I would probably have to stop this at least for a while. Now Jill had some things she had to do on Saturday the 7th and I figured I would take the opportunity to spend one last day as Kelly before we move. I didn’t mention this to Jill as I have actually gotten pretty good doing my own hair and makeup. Jill must have been thinking the same thing as she mentioned maybe I should spend Saturday as Kelly and maybe we could go out for dinner that night as we would be moving away the next day. I told her I would be Kelly but wasn’t sure I would be able to go out.

Saturday I got up and got all dressed as Kelly and Jill tried to talk me into going with her for the day. I told her I would think about dinner but there was no way I could spend the whole day out. Jill gave me a kiss and she was off. Now I was cleaning up the apartment to get it ready so when we left we would get our cleaning deposit back. We lived on the 5th floor and the garbage room was just 2 doors down from our apartment and I just wondered if I could walk down there with the garbage. I had 4 big bags, I grabbed one and cracked the door open and there was no one in the hall. I decided to try it, I opened the door stepped out and pulled the door almost shut putting the lock bar out so it wouldn’t shut all the way. I quickly walked 2 doors down and put the bag in the can and back to the room. Wow I couldn’t believe the rush I got from that even though I was really scared. I took a deep breath and worked up the courage to do it again. Same thing open the door, pull it almost closed and put the lock bar out to hold the door open. Walked a little slower this time but still got back to the room quickly.

I grabbed the 3rd bag opened the door, stepped out and pulled it almost shut when I heard a voice say hi, I spun around dropping the bag. It was Jill’s Mom Helen, She said sorry she startled me and helped me pick up the bag. She said she was here to see Jill. I told her Jill was out for the day taking care of business before she moved. Walked the garbage down the hall and this time walking slower as Helen walked with me and I didn’t want her to recognize me which I didn’t think she would as I really did look different.

Helen finally said oh you must be her roommate Kelly, nice to finally meet you. On the way back to the apartment she asked if she could wait there. I didn’t know what to say. I couldn’t let her in as she would see the apartment pretty much empty of course I could tell her I was also moving as I couldn’t afford this apartment on my own. Amazing how fast your mind works when you are scared. I told her Jill said she would be gone all day and she said that was too bad as she wanted to spend the day with her before she moved. We got back to the apartment and the door was shut. I got that scared look as I tried the door and it was locked. I was locked out. Helen must have realized what had happened as she told me she felt like it was her fault for startling me. I didn’t know what to do. Helen told me she would take me to lunch I knew I could just stand there in the hall so reluctantly I agreed.

I was never so scared going down the elevator and walking out to her car. I was relieved once I was in her car. We drove to a little café at the shopping center down the street. It was after lunch so it wasn’t real busy which I was glad for. Now we sat there at lunch and we talked and I was scared again doing my best to make sure she didn’t figure it out. We spent almost 2 hours at the café and by the time we were ready to leave I was feeling like I had fooled her as she had seemed to accept me as Kelly her daughter’s roommate. Helen gave the waitress her credit card for the bill. She pulled out her cell phone and made a call.

Now I got scared again when I heard her say hi honey, I am in town to see you before you leave. There was a pause for a moment and I heard well why don’t I take you and James out to dinner tonight. We can meet at Henry’s at 6 for dinner her treat. There was another pause and I heard her say that’s too bad James can’t make it but I will see you at 6 and she hung up. She looked at me and said oh I forgot to mention you were locked out well you can have dinner with us and then go home with Jill. I guess we will be spending the day together. I didn’t know what to say but I knew I had no choice so I said that sounded like fun.

I figured we would go back to her but instead we walked over to a small shopping center and went to a salon there, Helen told me she had planned on spending the day here with Jill before she left. I wasn’t sure what to do so I went along with it. We went in and started off with a pedicure which was actually really nice. They painted my toes a beautiful red color.

Next came a manicure the lady filed and trimmed my nails pretty short and then glued tips on them. I looked at Hellen and she just smiled you will love long nails but if not you can remove them. Again not knowing what to do I went along with it? Soon I had beautiful long nails painted the same red and they were a half inch long.

Next came the hair a wash, trim and set. My hair now looked shiny and smooth and I think a little more blonde. The last part was a facial and this made me the most nervous as the lady removed all my makeup. Luckily Helen was 2 chairs away so I figured I was safe. Creams were applied and a mask and more creams it really was a fun experience At least up to the point I felt a pain on my eye brows. Turns out she waxed them. Once she was done she started my makeup again. She did a wonderful job and did the same color red on my lips as they did on my nails.

I finally got a look at what they had done and I was right, my hair was a little more blonde and my eye brows although they were not overly masculine before they were high feminine arches now but the makeup was flawless. I looked so beautiful. There was no way anyone would know I was not a female. Helen asked me if I liked it and without thinking about it I told her I looked beautiful and thanked her. We left the salon and drove downtown to Henry’s and waited for Jill. Now I was worried as Jill did not know I would be there or what had happened today. We were a little early so Helen and I went to the bar to wait for Jill. Helen called Jill and told her we she meet her in the bar and at this point also told her about me Kelly getting locked out and I was joining us. There was a pause and Helen handed me the phone. Jill asked me what had happened and I gave her a quick rundown without going into too much detail.

Jill walked in at 6 and Helen got up and gave her a hug I stood up and Jill looked at me and said wow girl you look fabulous and also gave me a hug which helped as I was a little worried about all that had happened today. I never thought I would be able to go out to dinner with Jill as a girl. We were shown to our table and we all looked over the menu as we talked. It was very pleasant and with Jill here Helens attention was turned more to her than me.

Helen finally brought up the question Jill had worried about and the reason she never told her mom we were living together, she asked if Jill and James were thinking of getting married. Now to be honest we have talked about it we even went as far to talk about getting married when we get to Las Vegas. Helen looked at me and asked me what I thought of Jill and James getting married and didn’t I think they made a cute couple. Now I had to agree but it is strange to be involved in a conversation about yourself and your future with someone who doesn’t know you are that person. First I did agree that they made a perfect couple and it would be good if they got married. Helen looked at Jill and told her Kelly agreed with her about them getting married and made the comment I would make a wonderful maid of honor. Wow this was getting interesting. Are dinner came and as we ate Helen was still talking about marriage and I felt bad for Jill as she was taking all of this by herself but as much as I wanted to help I had to stay in the Kelly roll. Jill finally said that she was pretty sure James and she would be married once they got to Las Vegas as they both really did love each other. Helen gave her a hug and said that was all she wanted, for her daughter to be happy and as long as she and James truly loved each other and were planning on getting married she could support their living together. This made Jill really happy and me too although I had to hide it.

After dinner as we had desert Helen told Jill she had a surprise for her. Jill asked what and her mom told her she was on vacation for two weeks and had decided to go to Las Vegas with James and her and help us move and get settled in. she had bought another plane ticket on the same flight. All 3 of us would fly out at 9 am tomorrow. Jill was surprised for sure but tried to act happy I on the other had was really worried. Even removing these long nails there was nothing I could do about my eye brows or my lighter colored hair. Helen would notice for sure.

Helen then finally sad she had one more question for Jill and asked when she was going to tell her the whole truth and then she looked at me and asked me the same question. I know I had a panicked look on my face. She smiled and told us both to relax and then pointed out that we had used her credit card for the plane ticket, she had got the conformation for the tickets also including the one for Kelly James Johnson. She looked at me and said it is fine I just wish you two had not been lying to me all this time. I know you two love each other and that is all that matters.
