Subtle Changes

By Tiffany wells


It is amazing what can happen over time. My name is John and I am just your average 22 year old guy, 5’5” and 120 lb. Well I guess I am a little small for a guy which made it hard when I was in school. I worked a few part time jobs till about a year in a half ago. There was a shop by the mall that had a help wanted sign so I went in. there were 7 woman in there working, turns out they did printing mostly for businesses but also were open to the public. All the women were about my age and very beautiful. I told them I was interested in the job and it seemed the lady in charge wasn’t too excited about me as a possible employee but she agreed to give me a try. Well after a couple weeks she told me I had the job but I would be more in the back doing the business printing and the other girls would be out front.

Now I loved working here with these 7 beautiful woman. All of them had beautiful long nails which was something I always loved on a girl. My nails were really short and looked bad as I chewed them, a bad habit from childhood. Now I had been working here for a few weeks and would walk into the mall for lunch to the food court. That is where I met Sue I actually turned around one day and ran right into her almost knocking her down. She was very pretty long blonde hair, about 5’4” and about 115 LB. Long pretty nails and her makeup was perfect which was no surprise. Turns out she works at the MAC counter at Nordstrom’s. Well we hit it off and started dating.

We moved in together about 3 months later and I was so happy. A few times Sue came to where I worked so we could go out and the girls I worked with liked her and told me how lucky I was which I was. It was about a year ago shortly after we moved in Sue made a comment about my chewed up nails and told me I really should stop chewing them. I was a little upset about this as my mom had always told me that. Well the next day at work I mentioned it to one of the girls I worked with and of course by lunch they all knew about it and all agreed with Sue which didn’t surprise me a woman always stick together. Now one thing that worked out and Sue and I now had the same days off Sunday and Monday so we got to spend a lot of time together.

We had gone out to dinner on Friday night after we both got off and Sue brought up my nails again and she surprised me by saying she was getting her nails done Monday morning which she did every 2 weeks and suggested I go with her and get a manicure and pedicure and start taking care of my nails. I told her I didn’t think that was a good idea. The next day at work I was talking with one of the girls and mentioned the conversation I had with Sue and she also thought I should go and take care of my nails as did all the ladies I work with. Well Saturday night when Sue and I got off work we went out for dinner and I told her I would give the manicure a try so she called the nail salon and got me an appointment at the same time as hers. The rest of the weekend I kept wondering what I was getting myself into.

Well Monday morning sue and I went to the nail salon. First we got a pedicure and it was actually really nice and relaxing. The nail tech put a clear polish on them when she was done and they looked nice and my lower leg felt wonderful I actually enjoyed it. Next came the manicure and it was just as nice. Now my nails were too short to do anything with other than trim the cuticle and polish them. Sue recommended I get a clear gel polish as it would stand up better. Now my nails didn’t really look ant better other than being really shiny. But I did have a fun time with Sue. As we left Sue set up another appointment for us in two more weeks.

Tuesday at work all the girls wanted to see my nails and thought they looked nice. I was a little worried about how shinny they were but within a few days I got use to them and with the gel polish on them I couldn’t chew them as they were thicker. 2 weeks later we went back to the nails salon and got our manicure and pedicure again and my finger nails had grown out to where the nail tech could file them down and they actually looked really nice and I have seen men with nicely manicured nails just like mine so I was okay with it and yes the woman I worked with thought they looked so much nicer.

2 weeks later on our trip to the nail salon I was actually getting use to this and was really looking forward to Sue and my Monday morning routine. Sue and I were talking as we got out pedicure and having a fun time. When we got ready for the polish Sue got a really bright red polish on her toes she smiled at me and handed me the same red she had on her toes and said, no one but me will see them. I thought for a moment and I don’t know why I gave the nail tech the red polish and she painted my toes the same red.

Then it was time for our manicures. Of course Sue had acrylic nails so they did a fill and the painted them the same red I of course got the clear gel again. She filed them back as they had grown out a little longer then I thought they should. I think she left them just a little longer than the last time. Tuesday at work all the girls thought my nails looked fine and so much better than they did when I was chewing them. I didn’t tell them about my red toes though.

2 weeks later Sue and I were back at the salon and getting our nails done and this time Sue didn’t say anything I just went ahead and got the same color on my toes as she did a really hot bright pink. My fingers nails were a little longer but she filed them down leaving them just a little longer. And again a clear gel polish. Now I really didn’t even think about how shiny my nails were any more. They really looked nice with a rounded shape. The ladies at work didn’t see anything wrong with it and thought they looked just fine.

2 weeks later we were back at the salon and it seemed so normal now. This week we got a purple color on our toes. I was really liking the manicures and pedicures. As the nail tech was filing my nails I mentioned something about the length and nice round shape might not be right for me. She told me not to worry she would try something different. She filed them down a little shorter but made them more square on the end instead of rounded. They did look shorter though. The ladies at work really liked the new shape and said they were perfect.

2 weeks later we went to the salon and by this time my nails did look the longest they have looked yet. We got our pedicures and this week we got a deep dark red on our toes and then over for our manicures. My nail tech kept the same square shape and filed them down but left them just a little longer then the last time but they were still short enough I thought. She was getting ready to put the clear gel polish on my nails when she asked if I wanted to try what she called clear pink. I wasn’t sure and said no but she showed me the polish and it really was clear with just the slightest pink tint. Don’t know why but I decided to give it a try. When my nails were done they looked just the same as they did before just clear polish. It wasn’t till we got outside in the daylight that you could see just the slightest pink tint to them. The ladies at work never even noticed the difference in the nails or if they did they didn’t say anything other than they looked great.

2 weeks later we were back at the salon and my nails were looking pretty long but I was getting used to it. We got a pinkish red on our toes and I was really liking the different looks of my toes with the polish. We started our manicures and my nails tech filed them down just a little bit and put the same clear pink gel polish on my fingers and they looked really nice. At work the ladies still thought my nails looked fine and I actually got to work a little out at the counter a few times this week instead of always being in the back room.

2 weeks later we had our normal trip to the salon and this time we got pink color on our toes. After all these trips to the salon my feet never looked or felt better. My feet were so soft and no rough spots. We got our manicures and she filed my nails down. What I found was they were fine when I got them done but 2 weeks later when we go back to the salon they seem a little long but I was use to them now. She was ready to paint my nails and she asked if I wanted to try a polish with just a little more of a pink color called kiss of pink. I looked at it and it really didn’t look that much pinker than what I had on so I said yes. She put the first coat on and it had a slight pink tint to it but when she put the second coat on you could tell they had a pink tint to them and it was really noticeable outside in the sun light. The ladies at work again said nothing other than they looked nice and they were fine with it.

2 weeks later we were back at the salon and Sue and I got that same hot pink polish on our toes. It really was a bright hot pink and looked really nice. We got our manicures and my nail tech left my nails a little longer this time and I just went with it. They were square and about an 1/8 of an inch long which doesn’t seem like that long but it is. This time she had several shades of pink gel polish out and we looked at all of them. Some were just too bright but there was a pale pink color that looked really nice and I don’t know why but I went with this one called pale pink. When they were done with 2 coats it was not a clear polish with a tint they were a really soft pink color and there was no denying I had on nail polish. I also noticed that with this color my nails looked longer. At work all the ladies told me how awesome my nails looked.

Now over the next couple visits I stayed with the soft pink and even once did a pale violate color and my nails were now getting longer and I was use to the soft nail colors on my nails. The problem was as they were longer I broke one of them at work so I had one short nail and it made my nails look funny. One of the ladies at work told me not to worry about it as it happens. Actually by the time Monday came around I had broken 3 of my nails I guess I let them get to long.

Sue and I went to the salon and got our nails done again a red color on our toes and then we got our manicures as she was taking off the old gel polish she was asking me how I broke my nails. I told her at work and I was a little disappointed that I would have to have short nails till they grow out. She said she could repair the nail with some acrylic. I looked at Sue and she said it would keep them from breaking. I thought about it and said sure. I was surprised when she filed all my nails down and then glued tips on and trimmed them down and then put acrylic on all my nails. When she was done they were actually almost as long as when I came in today accept for the broken nails. She put the same pale pink color on my nails and they looked fabulous. Just like Sue’s and the ladies at work accept for not as long. Looking at my nails now there was no question I had acrylic nails and they were pink. The next day at work the ladies thought they were fine and I explained about the broken nails and that this would help me not break them and they all agreed. It did take a little getting used to them as they were a lot thicker.

2 weeks later we went to the salon again and got our pedicures and then our manicures. I also had to get a fill where they had grown out. Basically I got the same thing Sue did accept her nails were longer. She filed them down till they were about ¼ inch long and I got the same pink color. Sue had a really bright hot pink. Now while we were getting our nails done we were talking about our vacation. In 2 weeks we were going to the beach for a week. We had hotel reservations at a hotel casino right on the beach. It would be the last week of August and it would be so much fun. We had booked the hotel Monday night through the following Sunday night and coming home on Monday. It would be so much fun.

2 weeks later we were going to the nail salon then right from the nail salon we would head for the beach. We had everything packed in the car for our trip. We got to the salon and got our pedicures and we got bright red polish on our toes. Then we got our manicures and the fill on our nails. As we were on vacation for the week I asked her to leave them long so she didn’t file them down. Sue got the same bright red polish on her fingers and smiled at me and said as long as I was keeping them long for vacation why not try the bright red. I thought about it and decided to try it. Soon I had really red nails and they were very noticeable.

We left the salon and I drove to the beach. I kept looking at my nails on the steering wheel as I drove. I just could stop thinking about how pretty they were. A couple times Sue had to repeat herself as I was thinking about my nails. As we got close to the beach I also started thinking about how visible my nails would be. Now I have had painted nails and a little long but these were really long and very bright. I mentioned this to Sue and she told me not to worry about it. As we pulled into the hotel parking lot Sue told me to drop her off and she would go check us in and I could get a bell hope to get our baggage out of the car and then go park it and then meet her inside. By the time I got inside Sue had us all checked in and we were on our way to our room. The bell hope brought our stuff up and then after Sue tipped him he said you ladies have a wonderful time. I looked at Sue and she just smiled.

Now I know I am small for a man but I never really thought I looked feminine although my hair is down to the top of my shoulders. I looked in the mirror and I had to admit I really didn’t look male or female as I have soft facial features and I think with the longer hair and of course the nails he just assumed I was female. We unpacked and then went down to get some dinner and again our waitress referred to us as ladies. Every time, even in the bar the bar tender called us ladies.

Now I was wearing my male blue jeans and a grey sweat shirt but I was flat chested also and figured someone would pick up on that. After dinner we went into the casino and played some slots. As a matter of fact not one person referred to me as sir, he or him all night long.

Tuesday morning we got up and got dressed as we were going to spend the day walking the small little town and checking out the shops and of course checking out the beach. Now it was going to be a nice day in the low 80’s perfect for the beach. Sue had on a pair of shorts and a white tee shirt and I also had on shorts and a white tee shirt.

Sue was putting on her makeup when she looked at me and said she had an idea. I asked her what and she told me she wanted to put just a little makeup on me. I wasn’t sure but she said it would be very light and not very noticeable so I let her try it. She put mascara on me which you could see and then just a really light amount of eyeshadow light browns to a medium brown and she was right it wasn’t very noticeable. Then she did a lipstick in a mauve color. It looked kind of dark in the tube but once on my lips it just gave my lips a hint of color. You could kind of tell I had on makeup but not really she did a good job. I was going to go out with makeup on for the first time.

Sue said there was one more thing, I was too flat chested in my tee shirt and I should probably try one of her bras now I wasn’t sure about this but I had gone this far. She tried several of her bras and she finally found one that I could wear although it was really tight. It was a pale pink bra and had some padding in it so it made me look like I had small breast. I looked in the mirror and I really did look like a girl except for the shorts I was wearing. I was a little nervous when we left the room but everyone we met greeted us as 2 woman. We had a nice breakfast and then we were out onto the beach to walk down to the town. Now in the sunlight you could really see the pink of my bra under my white tee-shirt. We had a wonderful day.

That night as we were getting ready for bed I took off the bra and you could see the marks on me from it being so tight. I must admit it was not very comfortable to wear, I don’t know how woman do it. I had gone the whole day though and as far as I know no one suspected I was anything other than a girl. The rest of the week was pretty much the same, I was kind of pawing myself off as a girl as we checked out the shops in the town ore walked along the beach We even walked in the water some it was a fun week and went by way too fast. By the end of the week I had learned how to do the mascara and eye shadow really lightly. You really had to look close to tell I had any on.

Monday came and we checked out of the hotel and then went down to the beach for one last walk. WE stayed till midafternoon as being a Monday we shouldn’t have much traffic going home. It was a little after 3 when we got back to the car and headed for home. On the way we stopped for dinner so it was after 7 when we got home and started to unpack. We went to bed as we were both tired.

We got up Tuesday and started getting ready for work. We left for work and I really didn’t think about it till I parked at work, that is when I noticed how red my nails were and how long. There really wasn’t anything I could do so I went in. none of the other ladies said a word about my nails accept one as it turns out she had pretty much the same color so of course we had to compare nails. Hers were still longer. After this several of the other ladies told me they really did look good and I would have so much more fun now as there were so many wonderful colors to choose from. By the end of the day I was loving my red nails again.

A week later when Sue and I went to the nail salon we got that Hot Pink on or fingers and toes and again I didn’t have them file them down. Within a few weeks my nails were just as long as Sue’s and the other ladies about a half inch long. So now I have long pretty nails all the time and love it.

Birthday Surprise   2 comments

Birthday surprise

By Tiffany wells

Well I guess we should start with a little background. My name is John Wells, I have a twin sister Jennifer Wells and we live with our Mom Jill. My mom was only 16 years old when she had my sister and I and I found out later we were actually triplets. Now at the time we were born being as my mom was so young my Grandma really raised us and her name was Janet, yes if you haven’t figured it out my family likes names that start with the letter J. Now being triplets we were born 5 weeks early so we all stayed in the hospital for a couple weeks which was very expensive. Now we had always thought our other twin had died but we found out later that Grandma had given her up, seems with all the teen pregnancies they had passed a law where you could take an unwanted baby to any fire or police station and drop them off no questions asked and that is what Grandma did. Her name was Julie and she had lots of health issues and Grandma and my mom knew they would never be able to take care of her especially with my sister and me so they gave her up.

Now my sister and I were both healthy happy kids growing up but as a result of our being born early I am assuming we both never got really big. My sister is 5’1 and I only got to 5’2 and we both weight right around 105 lbs. now for a girl this is not that bad but for a boy growing up it is terrible. Even today at 17 I look like I am a 6th grader which made it hard to fit in so I tried everything including growing my brown hair long and wearing it in a ponytail to try to be cool, well I actually had another reason also that I kept to myself. Growing up in a family with 3 women can be tough and as a result I found myself fascinated by the cute dresses and the makeup they wore.
As I said my grandma raised us till we were 10 when she died in a car wreck and my mom till this point was more like a big sister. Mom finished high school and then went to college seems after she had us and became a mom she really settled down and put effort into her studies and earned a batcher degree in business. Now mom was beautiful with long blonde hair and looked like a model and was also very smart. Mom got a really good job with a cosmetic company in New York and made good money and after Grandma died she stepped up and took over raising us. I think it was when we turned 12 my mom started letting my sister Jennifer use makeup and that is when I realized I was really different. Don’t get me wrong my mom loved me but she would do all the mother daughter things with Jennifer including getting their hair and nails done, Jennifer also now had blonde hair and her and mom looked more like sisters then mother daughter.
I was about 13 the first time I tried on one of my sister’s dresses and played with some of her makeup and found I really liked it. Now as I said being a small boy is hard but for a girl it is a good thing and with my long hair I could take it out of the ponytail and I actually made a fairly pretty girl. Now my school schedule was pretty good as on Tuesdays I would only do a half so I was done by 11 the other half was for study hall but we could leave and go home if we wanted which I did. Jenifer’s half day was Wednesday and what was even better is she was active in drama so on Tuesdays and Thursdays she would stay after school for rehearsal till 4 so it was about 4:30 or so when she got home and mom would get home a little after 5 so I had a few hours to myself so Tuesdays became my day to dress up and be a girl for a while. I did this all through the school year and loved it the only bad part was summer vacation as I would not get the chance to dress.
Now we lived in one of those high rise apartment building and we were on the 18th floor and had a nice big apartment so I had room to move around and have fun but as I dressed more I always wanted to go out although I was to scared even though I was completely passable because of my size. Now twice I did get up the courage to leave the apartment and go down to the coffee shop and get a drink and then right back up to the apartment. In our building as you left the apartment building on the right side going out was a small Starbucks and then a café just past it and on the left was a beauty salon. The door to the coffee shop was just 5 feet down from the apartment door so it was a limited exposer. The elevator came down right by the door so it was only about 15 feet to the outside and another 5 feet and into the coffee shop. I did this a few times always telling myself I was going to spend some time there but always chickened out and got my drink and back up to the apartment. The only real fear was running into one of the neighbors leaving or going back into our apartment, once out in the building I don’t think anyone would recognize me. I don’t know why I didn’t do this more often.

Now I just turned 17 on June 8th and that is when it all started. Mom had told us she needed to go to LA for the summer to help with opening an office there for the summer. We would fly out the morning of June 9th and stay there all summer and Jennifer was really excited about this. School was out and it was Jennifer and my birthday and as always Mom was taking Jennifer out for a girl’s day out at the salon. Jennifer had to run to the school for a couple hours that morning and then she and mom would meet at the salon. They said they would be home around 4:30 to 5 and the 3 of us would go out for dinner. Well I was going to have a little birthday fun also as I had the whole day and I knew that I would not get a chance to dress and be pretty till the fall when school started up again.

So as soon as Jennifer left at 8 am to go to school I started getting ready and today I was determined to go to the coffee shop again and sit there for a little while. I took a nice long bath and shampooed my hair with some of my sister’s shampoo and even used her curling iron to give it just a little curl. I took extra time doing my makeup which I had gotten pretty good at doing and then it was to find an outfit I could wear. I tried on a few of her skirts and tops always careful to put them back just right so she wouldn’t know. I finally settled on a short black skirt with a pink top and a pair of 3″ heels. I looked really good and I knew no one would recognize me or think I was anything other than a girl. I borrowed one of Jennifer’s purses and put the lipstick in it along with some money and of course my key. Now I just needed the courage to go.

I was just getting ready to leave when the phone rang so I walked into the kitchen and picked up the phone and answered it well it turned out to be a wrong number and as I was hanging the phone up I heard the front door open and in walked Jennifer. I panicked and stood flat against the wall hoping she wouldn’t see me. She called out to me as she walked into her bedroom. I was scared, what could I do. She left her door open so I could not get to my room and I couldn’t stay here in the kitchen. I thought quickly and decided I had to make a break for the door and get out of there which really was my plan all along. Boy was I lucky for the wrong number otherwise I would have been walking out of the apartment just as Jennifer came back. It was now or never so I moved across the living room and opened the door as quietly as I could and left.

Now I didn’t know why she was home or how long she would be there so I moved as quickly as I could in the high heels to the elevator and pushed the button just hoping the elevator would get there before Jennifer came out of the apartment. As the elevator door opened I saw Jennifer stepping out of the apartment and walking towards me but luckily the door shut so I was safe for now. I was so scared but also it was such an exciting feeling, my heart was pounding and I was actually enjoying it a little I think it was the fear of almost getting caught.

I got to the lobby and headed for the door, as I got there my heart almost stopped. My mom was out front on her phone standing just a little down from the coffee shop and looking this way. I would have to walk right towards her and get within about 5 feet of her to get in the door. As I turned to go back I saw the other elevator door open and Jennifer walked out and headed towards me. I panicked, what should I do. I walked out the door and turned left to get away from them. Now this is New York and the streets are always crowded and there were all kinds of people coming at me so I went into the first door I came to, to get off the street which was for ten beauty Salon. A young girl came over and asked if she could help me and I again panicked not knowing what to say. She looked at me and smiled and I wondered if she knew I was a boy. She again spoke, you are a new here aren’t you and I just nodded my head. She smiled again and spoke up well you are our 1,000 new customer this year so as a prize you get a complete free makeover. I was shocked and didn’t know what to do and was just about to say no thank you and leave when I heard the door open behind me and the lady again spoke up, Hi Jill and Jennifer it will be just a moment. I could feel my heart beating through my chest walls. My mom and sister were standing right behind me. I couldn’t turn around I could do anything, I worked up all the courage I could and in my best female voice thanked her and said I would love the free makeover, actually at this point anything would be great to get me away from there so she escorted me back to a chair in the back and I sat down and only then could I look back and I was right it was my sister and mom by the door. They were shown to chairs right by the door so I was safe for now but I was also trapped as I couldn’t leave without walking right by them.

The beautician came over and introduced herself as Sarah and told me to relax and enjoy the experience. Relaxing was not an option at this point as I was scared to death. What would mom or Jennifer do if they saw me, Jennifer would be mad at me for wearing her clothes. I would die if I got caught. At this point I swore I would never do this again if I could just get out of this without them finding out. Sarah washed and conditioned my hair several times and then put some curlers in it and wrapped it all up. When she had finished that she led me up towards the front to a manicure table and had me sit down. I was really scared now as I was closer to the front and my mom and Jennifer. Sarah told me Nicole would be right with me to do my nails bit while I waited she would give me my facial so I leaned back and she rubbed creams and oils into my face and messaged it and it was actually relaxing other than the total fear I had about being caught. I saw my mom and Jennifer get up and start to walk towards me and I knew it was just about over when Sarah told me to close my eyes so she could put the mud mask on and started to smear this thick green cream over my face so I now looked like I had a Halloween mask on I had to keep my eyes closed but felt better as I didn’t think mom or Jennifer would recognize me this way. Well I heard someone sit down next to me and I heard mom speaking to Jennifer who must have been right next to her. They both got the same a facial and were told the same to keep their eyes closed for the mask so I kind of relaxed. I heard a girl talking as she took my hand, she said she was Nicole and would be doing my nails. I tried to talk as little as I could being right next to my mom but it was hard as Nicole liked to chat, luckily soon my mom and Jennifer were getting their nails done and of course the ladies doing their nails were talking with them so I felt better.

I must have sat there for an hour while I got my nails done, my heart was still racing but I was feeling a little calmer now. Nicole finally said she was all done and helped me stand and led me over to another table where they leaned me back and started to wash the hardened mask off my face. I was still laid back over the sink hoping they were almost done so I could get out of here before my mom and Jennifer were done so I could get back home and change back. Sarah came back over and again more lotion on my face and a little more cream above my eyes. Then she put something above my eyes and pulled really hard and it really hurt. This was the first time so far that something didn’t feel nice. She then sat me up and started to take the curlers out of my hair and that is when I saw my hands. My nails were bright red and ½ inch long. I was in trouble as these would be hard to get off quick when I got home. I just sat there staring at my hands as Sarah brushed out my hair.

Sarah then said it was time for my makeup and she spun the chair around and for the first time I saw myself. My brown hair was now blonde and cut in a feminine style and worse than that it was the same style my sister had. My eyebrows were also different, they were very thin and had a high arch to them. I was way beyond being able to change what they had done to me when I got home. I was trapped and no place to hide. Sarah did my makeup and it was way better than I had ever done including red lipstick to match my nails. Sarah led me over to the chairs were you get the pedicures and sat me down and started to fill up the tub you soak your feet in.

I was trying to figure a way out of this and the only thing I could come up with was to run away. Suddenly I saw my mom sitting in the chair next to me so I tried not to look her way hoping she would not notice when Sarah spoke up and said, Jill you were right with the new hair style your two daughters almost look like identical twins. I looked at Sarah and for the first time I turned and looked at my mom and I was about to cry when she put her hand on mine and told me to calm down. She told me that she and Jennifer had known for a while about my secret and the only thing they were unhappy about was that I felt I had to hide it from them. She also told me they knew how left out I felt when they had their girl’s day out at the salon and wanted to include me today for our birthday. Jennifer came over and sat on the other side of me and gave me a smile. She said it would be fun to have a twin she could hang out with and do all the girl stuff with which made me feel better.

The ladies came over and did our pedicures and they felt so wonderful and for the first time all day I felt relaxed. They painted our toes the same red color so now all 3 of us had red toes, fingers and lips. In a way we even looked like mom but you could tell she was a little older and her hair just a little different style. Mom paid the bill and then said it was time for us to go out to dinner. I looked in the mirror and knew I would never be mistaken for anything other than a pretty young lady.

We got to the Restaurant and went in. I was a little nervous even though I knew no one could tell. Mom and Jennifer just kept telling me to calm down and it would be okay. Mom asked us what we wanted to eat and Jennifer said a salad and the baked chicken breast. I was going to get the BBQ ribs as that is my favorite food and mom just shook her head. She smiled and told me no I would have to pick something else as that would be too messy and mess up my face and lipstick not to mention getting under my nails. She suggested I have the same thing as Jennifer so I agreed. I guess I never thought about stuff like that before.

We had a great dinner and then it was time to leave and go home. On the way out to the car mom asked me if I had enjoyed my day and my present, I gave her a big hug and told her I did it was the best present ever and I was sad it was almost over.

We got in the car and mom asked me if I had my ID with me which I didn’t as I left that in my wallet at home so she passed back a card and to my surprise it had the name Julie Wells and it had my picture on it well if you looked real close you could see it was my sister but we looked so much alike now no one would know that. Julie was the name of then baby she had given up so her and Jennifer used that birth certificate and went down and got a drivers license in that name for me.

As I looked at it I asked what this was for and Jennifer spoke right up and said well it really doesn’t have to end that quick she said, you could be my sister for the summer in LA. I looked at her as if she had lost her mind but I will admit the thought of it was exciting. Mom looked at me in the mirror with that motherly love look. Sweetie she said I think you should spend the summer as a girl and see what you think about it and if it is something you really want or just a fascination you have with being a girl. I really wanted to but wasn’t sure if I should or if I could tell my mom I wanted to. It was almost like my mom was reading my mind as she knew what I was thinking because the next thing she said was that I had to trust her enough to tell her how I truly felt which I am not sure I really knew.

I was just getting ready to tell her I would try when she pointed out that my hair was now blonde and very feminine and the only way to change that would be to cut it off and there was nothing we could do about my eyebrows till they grew back in a few weeks and the nails were acrylic and would be really hard to get off and would damage my natural nails and people would be able to tell so basically I was trapped at least for a few weeks besides our flight out in the morning was for 7:30 and as it was after 8 pm now there was no place we could even go now to try to change any of the thing that had been done to me besides the tickets for the flight were in Jill, Jennifer & Julie’s name so I would have to travel as Julie.

In a way I was kind of excited about the idea plus I could say I had no choice in the matter. We got home and started packing and all we put were Jennifer’s clothes as we had to take enough for both of us. Mom asked for my male Driver’s License which I gave her and she put it in her dresser drawer and told me for the summer I was her daughter Julie and that I would have to answer to that name and act like a proper young lady. With that I was off to bed and looking forward to my summer as a girl in LA.

Grandma’s special gift   2 comments

Grandma’s special gift.

By Elisabeth James

Well my name is Kelly Frost and I have had an interesting life. My parents are both very successful and work at Microsoft and as such we live in a big beautiful house in Seattle, actually it is bigger than we need as it has 5 bedrooms upstairs a master bedroom and then two pairs of bedroom each which share a bathroom with the room next to it like in the TV show the Brady Bunch. Well enough about that so let me tell you a little about me.

I am 16 years old and very small for a boy my age, actually I stopped growing at age 11, and I am only 5’4″ tall and weigh about 115. My story really starts when I was 7, I loved to watch my mom put on her makeup there was just something special about it, she looked so pretty. I guess I was jealous, I knew boys were not supposed to be pretty but I couldn’t help myself. Anyway when I could I would sneak a tube of lipstick or some eye shadow to play with. I thought there was something wrong with me but I couldn’t help myself. I think it was when I was 9 I started putting on some of my mom’s clothes that I could somewhat fit in. this is about the time I started growing my hair out as lots of boys my age had long hair. Now I am not saying I wanted to be a girl I just loved everything about them and the way they looked.

Any way when I was 9 I also got my first computer for the start of the school year and it was the best gift I had ever got as I was able to go online and I found Facebook and all kinds of boys just like me from my age up that like to dress as girls, well it didn’t take long for me to set up a Facebook account so I could chat with them and suddenly I wasn’t alone. Now with a name like Kelly I didn’t think to change my name so this would mean I could set up a Facebook page for my boy self but that was okay. It was great to talk with others and know I was not alone. I even put a couple pictures online when I had on mom’s dress and some makeup but nothing you could clearly see my face. Then other good thing about the computer was I was able to send e-mails and now I could e-mail my Grandma who lived in Portland. My Grandma was really well off, I mean she lived in a bigger house then we did and traveled all the time which meant I really didn’t get to see her very much at best once a year so this was a way I could keep in touch. Now she was really nice but she was also a little eccentric at least that is what my mom and dad called it but I guess when you get older you can do what you want.

Well I was shocked when my Grandma said she was coming to our house for Thanksgiving but I was really looking forward to it as it had been over a year since I had seen her. I was really excited and my parents just told me to be on my best behavior and not do anything to make her made. Any way we picked Grandma up at the airport on Wednesday night and she gave me a big hug and said how happy she was to see her granddaughter which caught me off guard, mom just said it was because of my long hair. Any way when we got home Grandma had little gifts for all of us and when she got to me she handed me a couple small boxes and to my surprise inside were two dresses, she gave me a big hug and told me it was time I stopped being such a tom boy and how cute I would look in them. Mom and dad both told her I was a boy but she just smiled and told them she knew how they had wanted a boy but it was time I started dressing like a girl. Mom gave me a hug and apologized and told me Grandma had a little trouble with reality and they would make it up to me so I thanked Grandma and gave her a big hug. Now deep down inside I was thrilled with the dresses as now I had my own in my size.

When Grandma left both mom and dad told me how sorry they were about the dresses and they would fix it. I told them thanks and I understood about grandma. Mom was going to get rid of the dresses so I had to think quickly. Mom why don’t we put them in the next room just in case Grandma comes back we wouldn’t want her to think I just got rid of them, mom thought that was a great idea and so did I as I could get into that room anytime I wanted through the bathroom.

Now it was getting close to Christmas and we received several boxes from grandma, one for mom, one for dad and 3 for me I was shocked as grandma had always sent gifts but this year she really went overboard. I couldn’t wait for Christmas day. Well it finally got there and I got so many great gifts from my mom and dad and even Santa and then it came to the boxes from grandma. I opened the card and I saw right away it said to her special granddaughter on Christmas so my hopes were high she would send me something pretty I just had to not act to excited. I opened the first box and sure enough it had not one but 5 pretty dresses in it I got to the second box and when I opened it I didn’t have to act shocked as I was. Grandma had sent me an assortment of bras and panties and a few nighties in such pretty colors I looked at mom and dad and they were just as shocked as I was but probably for a different reason. The third box had several pairs of shoes all with heels ranging from 1″ to 4″ which I loved but for someone my age probably a little more grown up then I was and also a makeup set. I looked at mom, she gave me a hug and told me they would make it up to me. I picked up the boxes and mom asked me what I was doing. I just smiles and told her I was going to go put them in the spare bedroom so when Grandma came she could see them. She gave me a hug and told me what a wonderful child I was to care so much about grandma.

That night I could control myself so I went to bed early, mom and dad thought it was because I was disappointed and they promised to make it up to me. I snuck into the other room and got a bra, panty, dress and makeup and soon I was all dressed up and looked better than I had ever. I took a couple pictures and posted them on my Facebook page and this time you could see my face not that anyone would recognize me. I soon got comments from some of my friends which I now had over 200 and all of them told me how cute I looked. I told them all about the presents I got from grandma and they said how lucky I was which I new. Now as I said by this age I had stopped growing so I was now happy about that as I would outgrow these wonderful gifts.

Well as I said I loved this and Grandma started coming around more, Easter, My Birthday in June, Thanksgiving and Christmas and she always bought me cute dresses, shoes and girl things and mom and dad just gave up trying to convince her I was her grandson and thanked me for being so understanding of a grandma. Well it was Easter when I was 14 when Grandma showed up with this really pretty pink Easter dress for me and I thanked her for it and gave her a big hug. Any way it was about an hour before dinner when Grandma said we should all get dressed up for dinner today, she looked at me and told me to go put on my new dress. Now she had bought me many things over the last few years but she had never asked me to wear them. When she came I would stay in the spare room with all her stuff and that had always been enough. I looked at mom and I could see the look on her and dad’s face and I could tell they were about to say something when I realized I had to say something or risk an end to it all. I walked over to mom and said well we normally don’t dress up but if mom dad thought it was a good idea I would agree. Mom gave me a big hug and said she would help me. On the way upstairs she thanked me for being so understanding, I just smiled and said for one day I could do it. We got into the room and I was getting the dress when mom sat me down, sweetie it is so nice of you to do this but I am afraid you will also have to wear the underwear as she held up a pink bra and panty. My heart almost stopped as this was too wonderful. I did my best to hide my excitement and told her for grandma I would. Soon I was standing there wearing a bra, panty, and a beautiful pink dress and of course some low heels. I was in heaven. We went outside, dad gave me a hug and told me he knew how hard this was on me but thanked me for putting grandma first. Grandma’s eyes lit up when she saw me and she gave me a hug and told me what a beautiful girl I was and it was a shame I didn’t dress this way more. Grandma also had on a beautiful dress that almost match mine in color. Mom and dad went upstairs to change and grandma too me back into the room. She sat me down and told me I was old enough to wear a little makeup. With that she put on some eye shadow, mascara and a pretty pink lipstick. I was in shock, what would mom and dad say. When they came out they saw us in the bedroom and saw me, I just smiled and told them Grandma thought I was old enough. We all went down stairs and on the way down mom gave me a hug and promised to make this up to me and how proud she was I was thinking of grandma first.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and it was the most wonderful day of my life but I couldn’t tell mom that. I did not want the day to end and I did everything I could to keep from changing but soon it was 10 pm and time for me to go to bed. Mom and grandma came upstairs to help me and grandma picked out one of the nighties she had given me to sleep in. from then on whenever Grandma would come I would wear a dress and pretend I was her granddaughter and my parents would always reward me afterwards for being so thoughtful. It was the perfect life and I so looked forward to Grandma’s visits which seemed to increase. Seems as she got older she cut down on her traveling an d as such would come visit us about every 6 weeks which gave me a lot of time to be a girl. Grandma even took pictures which she would send me copies through e-mail and I would post to my Facebook page. She even taught me how to put on makeup. Even a few times mom would come in while she was showing me and give me tips. It was really so much fun. I even got pretty good at it.

By the time I was 15 I was pretty good at dressing up so much so that when we knew Grandma was coming over I would get dressed up before she arrived, mom would even help me maybe with my hair or makeup and we would pick out the outfit I was to wear which was getting harder as my wardrobe had really grown as Grandma always had something new for me when she came. I think we all got used to it as mom and dad no longer shall we say made it up to me which was okay as I totally enjoyed my girl time, it became the new normal when grandma was here although we never went out which is something I really wanted to do now but that was okay as I got time to dress and I had my friends online I could video chat with while I was dressed up and I had posted so many pictures to my Facebook account. I would chat with some of my friends online that were older about what it was like to go out and I had several friends that were real girls and we would chat about what it was like to go to the beauty salon and get your hair done or a nail salon and get your nails done and it always sounded so much fun. I new someday I would get the chance to go out. Or what it would be like to live for a week or more as a girl to do this every day.

Well it was my 16 birthday on June 21st which fell on a Saturday and Grandma was coming to town for it. My Parents told me we would go out and celebrate after grandma left so I was happy as I would get to spend my birthday as a girl this year. Grandma arrived on Thursday night so while dad was at the airport picking her up mom and I were at home getting her granddaughter ready. By the time they arrived home I looked so beautiful and so much like a girl no one would ever be able to tell and I could see in my mom’s eyes she was proud of the way I looked.

Grandma’s eyes lit up when she saw me and she gave me a big hug and told me how pretty I was and how lucky she was to have such a beautiful granddaughter. Even dad told me I looked pretty and gave me a kiss on the cheek. Grandma had a few presents for me but she told me I had to wait till Saturday, my birthday to open them but maybe if I was good I could have one present tomorrow which was Friday. Mom and dad both had to work so it would be Grandma and me at home all day alone and I hoped she had something special to give me.

Grandma smiled Kelly my dear lets go out and have some fun today maybe some shopping or something. Now I knew I should have said no as I have never gone outside like this but I so wanted to. How much fun would that be? I gave her a hug and told her that sounded like so much fun. She smiled and told me to go put my ID, some money and makeup in my purse as the cab would be here shortly. I was shocked she had already arranged for a cab.

By the time I got back downstairs the cab was there and so I took my first steps outside. Now we did have a big house which also meant a big yard and long drive so I really didn’t have to worry about the neighbors seeing me which made it a lot easier. Soon we were on our way. We got to the mall and the cab left us off at one end and grandma and I walked to the door and inside and I past several people and none of them pointed at me or laughed, a couple boys did take a good look the way I do when a pretty girl goes by. Just inside the door was a beauty parlor and grandma headed inside. I paused for a moment and grandma smiled at me and said, honey you are 16 now you need to take better care of your hair and nails now so I went in. we were greeted at the door and I found out Grandma had made an appointment for us both.

We started off with our hair, first a wash and then cut just a little off the ends then some conditioning and then another rinse and then my hair was set up in curlers. Now I had played with my mom’s curling iron at home but this was a first. Once our hair was set we were led over to these chairs where they soak your feet and give you a pedicure. Oh this was so relaxing and I was enjoying every minute. It was everything I had hoped it would be. When they were done she asked me what color I wanted. Now I have played with makeup but never nail polish I looked at grandma and she smiled and told me any color I liked so I picked out this bright red color which grandma liked too so we both got our toes painted that color. They looked so beautiful and no one would see them unless I was barefoot so I thought I might even be able to keep them painted once grandma left.

From here we were led over to these little table for our manicure. Again they soaked our hands and fingers and pushed the cuticle back at least that is what the lady said which made my nails look longer. She then glued some extensions on the end and cut them down till they were about a half inch long. She then started to spread a paste over them and shape them. It was so relaxing and such a great feeling. It took her almost an hour to do this and then she took the same bright red color and painted our finger nails, now this I knew I couldn’t keep which I was sad about but I had them now.

We then went over to another chair where we put our hands under these lights for the polish to dry and while we did this they gave us a facial. They put a cream on our face that kind of hardened and then washed it off. They then spread another paste above my eyes and pushed down and rubbed then I felt them pull away and I jumped. Up to now everything had been so relaxing and fun but this hurt. I suddenly realized I had just had my eyebrows waxed. I got a little scared now as things might be getting out of control. The lady put a moisturizer on my face and massaged it in which relaxed me and then she started to apply makeup. I couldn’t wait to see what I looked like.

When this was all done we went back over to the chairs we started at and they took the curlers out of my hair and brushed it out. I was could not wait to see what I looked like. Finally she was satisfied and turned my chair so I could look in the mirror. I was in shock, I was both scared and thrilled at the same time. I did look totally beautiful and completely like a 16 year old girl but I also had a very feminine haircut and style with bangs and my light brown hair was now a blonde color and really curly. It would be impossible to make this look at all like a boy’s hair style. My eyebrows were also well shaped with a high arch and there was nothing at all boyish about them, actually most girls in my class would love to have eyebrows like this. I looked at grandma and told her I was worried what mom and dad would think. She smiled and gave me a hug and said, my beautiful granddaughter you are a young lady now and they will see you for that, they will be so proud of you. I knew what she meant and had I been a girl that would have been true but I was their son and they had been going along with this while grandma was here this was a little more permanent. There really wasn’t anything I could do so I made the best of it after all it is something I dreamed about doing. I couldn’t wait to post pictures on my Facebook page and chat with some of my friends especially a few of the girls I had been chatting with.

It is funny the friends you can make online they are from all over the world, and although you never really meat them they are in some ways really good friends. Most of them other crossdressers, some real girls I had met and even a few older woman that in some ways were like online moms that I could talk to and it was amazing the support I got from all of them. The girls all told me I needed to do what made me happy the older woman told me the same thing and that they would love their child no matter who he was or how he wanted to live his life, one even encouraged me to tell my mom and dad how I felt. Tonight when I got online I would have so much fun but right now I had to focus on the here and now and enjoy this time out.

We walked into the mall and I had a whole new kind of self-confidence as I knew I looked as good as any other 16 year old girl at the mall, actually probably better. We stopped at a little jewelry store and grandma bought me a ring, bracelet a necklace and some earrings. The earrings were little gold hoop earrings and they were for pierced ears. I looked at grandma and she smiled you are 16 you should have your ears pierced, I looked at the lady and figured why not as at this point pierced ears would be the least of my problems so I sat down and in a few minutes I had gold hoop earrings in my ears.

From here we went to the food court and had a late lunch and then we hit the mall shopping. We went to every store that sold anything that a girl might want. Shoe stores, dress shops, Victoria’s secret which is one shop I had always wanted to go into but was too afraid. We even went to a bridal store and I tried on a wedding dress. I tried on so many beautiful dresses today it was like being in heaven and the funny thing is somewhere during the day I stopped thinking about being a boy dressed as a girl and started thinking of myself as a girl and enjoying it. It was the most wonderful day of my life.

Well by now it was after 5 and grandma called a cab to take us home. We were on the way home when mom called me on my cell phone. She said her and dad were worried when they got home and we were gone. I told her grandma had wanted to take me shopping today and I heard the pause in her voice, did she take you as a girl? I said yes and I heard my mom tell me how sorry she was and she hopes I was okay. I really didn’t want to go into it on the phone with grandma right next to me so I just told her it was fine and we had a great day and there was nothing to worry about and then I did tell her grandma did go a little over board today to give her a heads up. She asked what I meant and I just quietly said two words, beauty parlor. Mom let out a small gasp, sweetie I am so sorry for you, I will make this up to you somehow. I just said its okay I am fine and I knew I would soon be home and they would see me and what had happened.

The cab pulled up in front of the house and for the first time I was scared. I got out of the cab and grandma and I walked to the front door, I did my best to stay behind her. We got inside and my mom came to great me, she stopped and her mouth dropped open and she couldn’t speak. Grandma looked at her and said, see what a beautiful young lady your daughter has turned into. Mom gained he senses back and said yes she is beautiful. She gave me a hug and whispered in my ear that everything would be alright. She then called dad by saying, honey come see how beautiful your daughter is grandma took her to the beauty salon today for a complete makeover and you will not believe how beautiful she is now.

Dad came around the corner and looked at me and I could see in his eyes he was confused, not upset but more of a wow he is a beautiful daughter. He paused for a moment and looked at me, then grandma and then me again. Then he walked over and said I guess my little girl has turned into a beautiful young lady and he gave me a kiss on my cheek.

We all went in and had a nice dinner and talked and I could see mom and dad looking at me from time to time trying not to stair, and as time went by we got back to a more natural sense in the house and it was almost like they overlooked what had happened to me so I felt more relaxed. That night when I went to bed dad actually called me over to kiss him good night and mom and grandma took me up and helped me clean off my makeup and get ready for bed.

The next day my birthday I got up and mom, dad and grandma were all waiting for me downstairs. I opened my presents from mom and dad and they were the normal type presents. I opened grandma’s presents and I found several pairs of skirts, several pairs of Capri’s and about 20 tops all very colorful and so pretty. Mom and dad said we would have a nice dinner tonight at home as mom would prepare anything I wanted. As I thought Grandma spoke up, nonsense it is her 16 birthday we have to do something special, I have planned a special day we are going downtown to the city center and go up in the Space Needle and walk around and see the city center. Mom and dad looked at me and without thinking I said that sounded like fun. I no more than said it and realized how it must have sounded. Mom smiled and looked at dad and said well if that is what my daughter wants lets go. Dad looked at me and said okay it sounded like a fun day.

I went and got my purse and mom followed me, are you sure you are okay with this sweetie, we will be outside all day. I looked at mom and said it would be fine it was only one day as long as it was okay with her and dad. Mom gave me a little kiss on my cheek and said it was fine she would love to have a daughter for the day and with that we were off.

It was funny as the day went by we all became more relaxed, I acted like a 16 year old girl and mom and dad treated me that way. Mom even pointed out a couple things I did that a girl shouldn’t and then we both broke up laughing when we realized what she said. The day was awesome to say the least. No one questioned if I were a girl, people held doors open and even several boys looked at me and when one came over to talk to me dad was right there like an over protective father should be. We had a wonderful day and then went out for dinner and it was after 9 when we got home and I was so tired I was ready for bed. Without thinking I went over and gave my dad a kiss and he gave me a kiss back and then I kissed mom and grandma and up I went to bed.

Sunday Morning g I got up and mom and dad were downstairs for breakfast but Grandma hadn’t come down yet. Mom said morning sweetie and dad asked how I was doing. I told them I was fine. We sat and talked for a bit and then mom gave me a hug. Sweetie we have a problem, I just looked at her. You know we love you and we are so proud of the way you have acted and all you have done for your grandma and she didn’t mean any harm to you, she loves you very much as we do. I looked at them both and said I know. Well dear the things she has done, the hair color it will be weeks before we can color it back unless you want to cut it all off. The nails again will be a week or better before they can be removed, we can cut them short but still you will have acrylic on them and the eye brows there is nothing we can do about them till they grow back. I looked at them again and said what are you saying? Mom looked at dad and then said well dear, we know Grandma is leaving today but it will be very hard for you to look like a boy for a while, it may be easier and only if it is okay with you to be a, well a girl, our daughter. I thought for a moment this was my fantasy coming true to live as a girl for a few weeks.

I paused for a moment to make sure I didn’t sound too excited and to get just the right words. I guess if you think it is okay I mean if you don’t mind it might be easier. Mom was getting ready to say something when dad spoke up, we love you Kelly and nothing will change that, not how you dress or what you do, you are still our son, well I guess daughter. All that matters are that you are happy and healthy. Plus I will admit I had always hoped we would have another child maybe a daughter and well I actually enjoyed yesterday. Mom and I both looked at dad for a moment as we took in what he said. He was the one I figured would be the least understanding. Mom looked at me and said your father is right, boy, girl, son, or daughter I will love you no matter what. You are such a good person for doing what you did for Grandma and like your father I would love to have a daughter to do all those mother daughter things with. I was actually a little jealous about grandma going to the beauty salon and getting her nails done with you as I thought it should have been me. Does that sound weird?

I looked at them and could no longer hold back, I love you both so much and I feel so bad as you think I am such a wonderful son for what I did for Grandma. The truth is I really liked this, when she started giving me girl clothes I loved it as I really like dressing this way. I was too scared to tell you the truth, I am your son but I feel more comfortable this way. I would like to stay your daughter for a while if that is okay with you. Dad got up from the table and came down by me and looked me right in the eye, I was afraid that what I said may have changed everything. Dad leaned down and gave me a kiss on the cheek looked at mom and said I guess we have a daughter for a while. Then he looked at me, now young lady I expect you to be a proper young lady and that is how mom and I will treat you, do you understand? I said yes. That is good and remember we both love you no matter what. He looked at mom and said I guess we will have to fix up that room proper for a 16 year old girl. Mom looked at me and smiled we will have so much fun dear but you must promise me one thing, you will always be honest with us. If you want to go back to being our son you must tell us or if you want to stay our daughter that is okay, even if you want to permanently change. Now that is something had never thought about as I had always planned on meeting a girl and getting married someday, I had never even thought about boys. I looked at mom and told her I would be honest with them and that I didn’t ever see me wanting to change permanently as I had no interest in boys.

On the bright side I would no longer have to pretend just when grandma came over. Just about this time Grandma walked in had gave us all a hug. She smiled at me and then my mom and dad. She said she would be sad to go but would be back in 5 weeks again for a visit as she loved all of us so much. I gave her a hug and said I would be looking forward to it and maybe we could go shopping and to get our nails done at which mom spoke up and said only if she could go also. Grandma hugged me and said that sounded wonderful and she could think of nothing better than going to the nail salon and getting a pedicure and our nails done with her daughter and grandson. I gave her a kiss and then stepped back and looked at her. Mom was the first to speak, what did you say mom? She smiled again I said there is nothing I would enjoy more than getting my nails done with my daughter and grandson. I looked at her but you thought I was your granddaughter?

Grandma let out a little laugh, sweetie I may be old but I could never forget you were my grandson. I just knew you liked to dress as a girl and wanted to but were too afraid to tell anyone. So I figured if I treated you as my granddaughter and bought you the things you needed you would say something, the beauty salon was my last hope, I hope you don’t mind but I love you too much to not help you be who you feel you are.

I looked at her, how could you possible know, sweetie you are so young. When you put my e-mail address into your e-mail account it linked it with your Facebook page and I got a friends request. I was a little surprised to see you dressed up and posting pictures and even though I couldn’t see your face clearly I recognized your bedroom. We have been Facebook friends for several years now, I am Miss James. She was one of the older ladies I had been talking too online for a couple years, the one who told me that my parents would understand and I should tell them as all parents want their children to be happy no matter what. She looked at me and gave me a big kiss, those chats we had changed my life and made me realize how important family is and what I was missing when I realized I didn’t even know my own grandson. I didn’t know what to say so I just gave Grandma a big kiss and told her I loved her. She looked at me and asked if I would be seeing her off at the airport today and I told her I would as she had helped me accept who I was and I loved her for it. And so that is how my life changed. It is now the end of summer and I have lived the last two and half months as a girl. I talked with mom and dad last night and told them I want to stay this way for a while longer so I have transferred to another school and will be going to school this year as a girl.

Mom and dad both love me and they love having a daughter although sometimes I think they miss their son especially dad when we are late going someplace and dad hast to wait for not only mom but me to finish our hair or makeup. Mom loves going to the beauty salon with me every other week to get our nails and hair done. I think mom has more of a glow about her now and I think she looks better now than she ever has as we do all the girly things together and she now also has long acrylic nails and wears makeup all the time and has even tried a few new hair styles. Being a girl is so much fun I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

PS Grandma is planning on moving here soon as she just bought the big house across the street, yes it is a 6 bedroom 4,000 sq. ft. house, she is downsizing.

Bad Habits

My name is Mike and I am 16. I have always been shy and kept mostly to myself. My best friend is Jill and she lives just around the corner from my mom and me. It all started on my 16th birthday. You see I have this bad habit of bighting my nails and it drives my mom crazy. She has been telling me for years to stop biting them. On my birthday mom took me out dinner and Jill and her mom went with us. Our moms were good friends as they both had lost the husbands and were single moms now. While we were at the restaurant mom kept telling me to stop biting my nails. I was a little embarrassed as Jill and her mom herd her scold me. When we got home mom sat me down.

“Honey you are 16 now and you should not be biting your nails”, “If you don’t stop I will make you stop” mom said. I told her I would stop and went up to bed. I was so glad that there was only two more days of school before summer vacation. Thursday and Friday went well and Friday night mom and I were watching TV when mom let out a yell. “That’s enough Mike stop biting your nails” mom yelled. I looked at her as I took my hand away from my mouth “yes mom” I said I will stop. Mom smiled, “No you won’t dear, I have heard that many times before” Mom said. “Now I will make you stop” she said as she looked right at me. I asked what she meant. She just smiled “we are going to put something on your nails to make you stop biting them” she said smiling at me. I had heard about this stuff that tasted really bad if you put your fingers in your mouth. I forgot about it and went to bed.

I got up Saturday morning and mom was on the phone so I made breakfast. Mom came in and smiled, “hurry up dear we need to be going” mom said. I looked at her and asked where we were going. She just smiled, “no place special dear” she said and gave me a smile. We soon left and drove to a small shopping center. Mom smiled “lets’ go Mike” she said. We got out and walked across the front of the center till we came to a small shop, as mom opened the door I could see it was a nail salon. I hesitated for a second and then went in with her. Mom smiled, “I need to get my nails filled and they are going to give you a manicure and fix your nails and then put something on them to keep you from biting them” she said. We sat next to each other and talked. My mom has always had nice long nails and I loved them they looked so great. I found it interesting watching what they were doing to her nails that I really wasn’t paying much attention to my own nails.

When I finally looked at my hands the nail tech had glued on long nail tips to my fingers. I started to say something but mom spoke first. “I told you mike if you didn’t stop biting your nails or I would make you stop” she said with a smile. “But mom, look at the length” I said to her. She smiled “they will cut them down dear they won’t be that long when they are done dear” she said. She trimmed them back to about a ½ inch past my fingers and then she stated to put some kind of goo on them and spread it out when she finished the third nail I suddenly realized I was getting acrylic nails just like my mom. She smiled at me, “don’t worry dear you will not be able to bite them now” she said smiling right at me. I was amazed at how they were looking and didn’t stop to think about it. When she had them all done she took the same bright red color my mom had on hers and started to paint my nails. Before I could say anything mom smiled, “don’t worry dear we can take the polish off later I just want to see what they look like” she said. Soon we were sitting with our hand under a dryer and talking my hands and nails looked just as good as moms.

As we left the salon I tried to hide my hands so other people would not see them. In car I kept looking at them as we drove home. When we got home I asked mom if we could take the polish of but mom just smiled. “Sorry dear I don’t have any remover” she said as she walked into the kitchen. I followed and said, “But mom you said we could take the polish off” I said with a scared look on my face. “Yes dear I did and we will just not ye, the color will be a reminder for you not to bite them” mom said to me looking me right in the eyes. In time we will change the color to something less bright but for now they look great. But mom I said, “I can’t be seen like this what will people think”? “Well dear you never cared what people thought about your short chewed up nails so why worry now”? “But mom, they are long and bright red, they look like a girl’s hand” I said.

“Well dear consider this you punishment for biting your nails, maybe you will learn from this” she said to me. “But mom” I said but before I could finish she stopped me. “Mike, that’s enough now if you keep complaining I will make you keep them long and red even longer, now dear not another word” she said with a look on her face that told me this was not up for debate. I went to my room and turned on my computer. I had been on the computer trying my best to type with my new nails when the phone rang. Mom called, “Mike its Jill for you”. I picked up the phone and said hi. Jill and I talked for a while but I said nothing about my nails. Jill finally asked the question I had feared. “Mike that new movie I want to see opens tonight. Let’s go see it; it starts at 7:20” she asked. I had to think of something but what, “Sorry I can’t tonight” I said. “Come on Mike it is supposed to be real good” she asked. “I can’t Jill I am being punished so I can’t go out” I said in a sad voice. She asked what I did and sense she was there when mom yelled at me about biting my nails I told her just left off the part about the nails. Jill said “we will have to go another time after my punishment”. I hung up the phone not knowing how long it would be. The rest of the day I tried to get use to the new length of my nails, even the things I did without thinking seemed harder. Mom just kept telling me I would get use to them in time which made me wonder. Even eating dinner was harder. After dinner I was in the living room playing my video game when the door bell rang.

Mom answered it and I stayed where I was because I didn’t want anyone to see my hands. I heard someone coming in the room with mom so I hid my hands in my pocket as I looked up and saw Jill. “Hi Mike, I figured if you couldn’t go out I would come over here, we can go to the movie another night” she said as she walked into the room. Mom left us alone and I was trying to figure out what to do. Jill saw the video game on and spoke right up. “Want to play some games” she said? I couldn’t say no as I was playing when she came in but to play I would have to take my hands out of my pocket. “Well Mike” she asked again? “Jill I can’t” I said trying hard to figure a way out of this. “Why not she asked, what wrong you don’t want me over here” she asked with a sad look on her face. I could see the hurt in her eyes and knew I had to come up with something. “No Jill I always like spending time with you, you see mom put something on my nails to keep me from biting them” I said looking down. Jill looked at me, “that’s great you really should stop that bad habit, But why can’t you play video games” she asked again. I looked down, “you promise you won’t laugh” I asked? Jill said of course not. I pulled my hands out of my pocket with my new ½ inch long acrylic nails painted bright red. Jill’s mouth fell open.

“My god they are gorgeous, I keep asking my mom to let me get mine done but she says I am too young this is so unfair” she said in a loud voice. Not only did she not laugh but she was jealous that I had them and not her. “I am a boy Jill I can’t have nails like this” I said. She just looked at me, “why not?” “I would love to have them you are so lucky” she said again. I was so surprised at her attitude but I was happy so we sat and played video games. And for once Jill beat me most of the time and this thrilled her. Soon it was late and Jill went home. Mom looked at me; “see Jill didn’t mind the nails, you worry too much” she said with a smile. I did feel better that Jill didn’t make fun of me and at least I knew that I would not be all by myself. I went to bed and fell right to sleep. I guess the stress from the day had worn me out.

Sunday afternoon Jill called and asked if I wanted to come over and watch a movie. Jill was okay with my nails so I asked mom and she said I could. When the door opened Jill’s mom was standing there, of course I had my hands in my pocket. “Hi Miss Mills, Jill invited me over” I said. “Come in Mike Jill is in the front room” she said as she let me in. I went in and sat down next to Jill. She started the movie and we sat there watching, Jill kept looking at my nails so I finally asked her why, “it’s just not fair Mike” Jill said. “I want to get mine done so bad and I can’t and your mom is making you” she said. The movie was good and I was so into it I didn’t notice Jill’s mom come into the room. “Would you two like a snack” Jill’s mom asked? We both said yes as I looked down and saw my nails. I quickly tried to hide them but it was too late.

“Wow mike those are gorgeous nails” Jill’s mom said. She had seen them and as I tried to think what to say Jill spoke up. “His mom made him get them done to stop him from biting them, it’s not fair we are the same age and you won’t let me get mine done” Jill said to her mom. “Why not mom I am 16 now, maybe I should start biting my nails so I can get mine done she said as she put one of her fingers in her moth. I was waiting for her to say something to me but she turned to Jill. “I know dear, you are a young lady now I have been trying to keep you my little girl” she said to her. “I guess I can’t keep you from growing up, if you want I will take you to the salon tomorrow night when I get home from work and you can get your nails done” she said to Jill. She smiled at me, “your mom is right you will not be able to bite them without breaking a tooth but they do look beautiful dear” Jill’s mom said to me. With that she left the room. She came back about 5 minutes later with some popcorn and a couple pops. I was trying to figure out how to open the pop can when she let out a little laugh. “No dear you will break your nail” she said with a laugh. Jill went to open it and she stopped her. “No dear Mike will need to learn this as will you if you are getting nails like his” she said to us. She left the room and came right back with a spoon and showed us how to lift the tab up. “That is how a lady with nails opens a can of pop, All you have to do is break one nail that way and the pain will keep you from ever doing it again” she said. I had a great time and now both Jill and her mom knew and thought nothing of it.

Monday night about 7 pm Jill came over and couldn’t wait to show me her new nails. They were just as long as mine but just a little darker red. We played video game till 9 when she went home. On Tuesday afternoon she came over and we talked for a while. She brought up the movie she wanted to go see again, “let’s go see it tonight Mike” she said. “I can’t Jill what about my nails” I asked. She smiled, “I already know about them, they don’t bother me” she said with a smile. “Yes but what about other people” I asked? “I can’t keep my hands in my pockets all the time we are out” I said looking right at her. Jill kissed me on the cheek, “I have an idea, let’s go over to my house” she said as she grabbed my hand. I was so caught off guard as Jill has never kissed me even on the cheek, a hug now and then but never a kiss. We got over to Jill’s house and her mom was not home but we headed right up to her room.

“Mike I have an idea that I think will work” she said as she smiled. She then took out her curling iron and came towards me. I was shocked, “what are you doing Jill” I asked? “Mike you have long brown hair so I am going to curl it to make it look more like mine, I will let you wear some of my clothes and you can be my sister for the night”. I was shocked. “Jill, have you lost your mind? I am a boy not a girl” I yelled. “I know she said but with those nails and hair and my clothes nobody would know”. “Let me at least try and we can see what you look like” she asked with a smile on her face. Jill’s mom got home and came to her room, “Jill you know you are not suppose to have boys in your room when I am not home” she yelled. She looked at us, “what are you doing she asked?” looking right at Jill. Jill spoke right up, “I want to go see that new movie and with Mikes nails he does not want to go out so I thought I would dress him up as my sister so we can go”. She said it as though it was an everyday thing. Jill mom looked at her, “honey you just can’t curl his hair and put your clothes on him”. There is more to being a girl then that” Jill’s mom said. I felt better now as I was not by myself against this idea. Jill’s mom came closer and smiled, “now let me take a look and she stared right at me”.

“Yes if done right I think it might work. Let me go get some things” Jill’s mom said with a smile. I was confused now as she left the room. I asked Jill what was up but her mom came right back into the bedroom. She wetted down my hair and then started to wrap it up in curlers. Once she was done she looked at Jill, “go get ready dear and I will finish Mike”. Jill walked into her bathroom and left her mother and me alone. She looked at me, “Mike I can make you look like a girl if you want to go out tonight but if this is something you don’t want then you will not act right and people my figure it out”. You will have to act like a 16 year old girl for this to work is that okay” she asked me. I looked at her not knowing what to say, “Are you sure no one will recognize me I asked her”? She smiled, “not even your own mother but depending on how you act they may guess you are a boy but Jill and I can help you with that” she said smiling at me. I did want to see the movie and get out for a while so I said yes. Miss Mills smiled at me; “well I guess I have another daughter for the night” she said. She quickly started to work on my face, creams, powders and all sorts of things. She spent about 45 minutes on my face and the feeling was both wonderful and strange at the same time.

Jill came back in and looked at me, “my god mom you must do my makeup too or Mike will look better than I do” she said with a worried voice. She smiled ‘yes dear I have already thought of that, I will help you too” she said. She handed me a pair of black panties and told me to go put them on in the bathroom, she then had Jill sit down and did her makeup for her. As I stood in the bathroom in just the panties I realized how small they were. I heard a knock on the door, it was Jill’s mother. “Okay Mike Jill went to my room you can come out know so I can get you dressed” she said with a motherly voice. As I came out I kept my hands down in front of me. Jill’s mom smiled “modesty that is good”. She wrapped something around my stomach and chest, “this is a corset dear”. “You will need this to help your figure, It will pull in your waist and help you look better” she said. Once it was fastened in front she pulled on the strings in the back and it got tight. She then had me sit down and put some stockings on and attached them to the corset. Next came a black skirt. “There dear that looks good now stand straight and put your hands on the wall” she said. I did as she asked. “Now dear take a deep breath and let it out” Jill’s mom said. I did as she asked even thought it was hard to breathe in because of the corset. As I let the air out I felt her pull hard on the corset again and it tightened up like a vise around me. I let out a little yell “I can’t breathe Miss Mills”. She smiled at me, “sweetheart you will get use to it just take smaller breathes”. She then started to pull at the flesh on my chest. As tight as the corset was it had forced a substantial amount of flesh into the cups and as she adjusted it I soon had a pair of most realistic breasts. A little small only about a B cup but I guess for a 16 year old that is enough. She put my top over the corset and I was done. She took me over and took out the curlers and brushed my hair out. My long straight hair that I kept in a pony tail now framed my face. The last thing were shoes. Jill’s closet was full of shoes, there must have been 30 pairs where as I have 3. Jill’s mom looked them over, Honey she called to Jill. “Which shoes are you going to wear”? Why she asked? Miss Mills said, “I thought it would look cute if you wore the same height heel” she said. Jill yelled back “I have two black heels on the right side that are the same height”. “Oh I see them she yelled back”. She brought the shoes over and I looked with amazement. They had thin straps across where your toes go and a thin ankle strap and a thin heel that must be 4 inches high. Miss Mills strapped them on my feet and then had me stand. It was nice to be taller as I am only 5 ‘4″ tall but they felt so strange. Jill’s mom helped me walk around the room and told me to stay more on the balls of my feet. I soon was walking pretty good as Jill came in. “wow Mike you look so beautiful, nobody would ever know you are not a girl” Jill said as she gave me a hug.

Jill handed me a purse and told me to put the stuff from my wallet in it and also handed me a lipstick and some makeup. Jill’s mom looked at us and got a funny look on her face. “Stay here I will be right back” she said. She came back with her camera; “just a couple pictures of my daughters before we go” Jill’s mom said. Jill looked at her mom, before we go” she asked? “Yes dear I thought we would go out to dinner and then I will drop you off at the movie”. “I can’t have two young girls walking to and from the movie theater” she said. Jill looked at her, “Mike and I have done it many times” Jill said. “Yes dear but that was when he was a boy, it is unsafe for two girls” she said with a smile. I really felt better as I did not want to walk that far in public like this. Miss Mills smiled “are we ready for dinner she asked”? Jill and I both said yes. “Well grab your purses girls and let’s get going she said with a motherly voice. We took our purses and Jill showed me how to put it over my shoulder. As we got to the door Miss Mills opened it and there stood my mom. I froze not knowing what to do. Mom looked at me, “wow what a beautiful daughter I have, I would never have known it was you if Janet hadn’t told me”. I looked at her and she smiled, “girls it wouldn’t be right for us to go out to dinner and leave Mikes mom home alone would it” Jill’s mom said. Mom smiled, “you look fine dear lets go eat”. I felt a little uneasy going out with all of them dressed as I was but they seemed to think it was okay.

It felt a little strange to be outside in a short skirt and 4 inch heels and getting into the car my skirt came up showing my panties. They all laughed and Jill told me I had to sit first and then swing my legs in and then she showed me. I had never thought about it but girls always get into a car this way and now I know why. The drive to the restaurant was fine and we talked about everything and the way I was dressed never came up. As we walked in the front door I saw all the people and got really scared. Jill took my arm and said “it would be all right”, mom smiled “just act normal and everything will be fine”, “Nobody will be able to tell you are anything but a young lady” she said. With all this support I calmed down and walked to our table. The young man held each of our chairs out for us to sit which was a new experience for me. We ordered our food and enjoyed a quiet meal together. I would look around to see if anyone was staring at me but nobody was. There was a young man about my age that smiled at me a few times and even waved once which really made me feel strange.

After dinner Miss Mills dropped us off at the movie theater and told us to call her when the movie was over, Mom just smiled and said, “You girls have a fun time”. Jill and I walked up and bought our tickets, it felt strange again to have to take a wallet out of my purse to get my money but the girl at the ticket booth paid no attention to us and gave us our tickets. Inside Jill grabbed my hand and led me to the woman’s bathroom, again I felt uneasy as I entered I noticed they had a small couch just inside and stopped to look at it. Jill smiled, “it’s for when we need to sit for a while” she said. Just before I went into the stall Jill gave me a quick hug, smiled and said “remember to sit sis”. Again something I probably would not have thought of. When I came out Jill was at the mirror putting on lipstick, I washed my hands and also touched up my lipstick. We went out and got some snacks for the movie. As we were standing in line two other girls, Sara and Ann came over and got in line behind us. I was really scared but they paid no attention to me as they talked with Jill. I was listening as I tried not to look at them. Suddenly Jill spoke up, “I am sorry, this is my new friend Michelle, Michelle this is Sara and Ann we go to school together” I looked at them and they both said it was nice to meet me. They seemed to not recognize me and went on with talking to Jill. We all went into the movie and sat together.

After the movie we were all standing out front waiting for our rides when Ann spoke up “so Michelle are you new to the area” she asked as I paused Jill spoke up “no she has lived here but just moved into my neighborhood” . That seemed to answer her question plus I did not have to remember a lot of lies about where I came from. Sara looked at Jill, “we are going to the mall tomorrow would you like to go?” she asked. She then looked at me before Jill could answer, “Michelle you are welcome to come also.” Jill smiled and said “that sounds like fun but I will have to ask my mom, I will call you first thing in the morning and let you know”. I said the same thing. There ride got there first and they left. Jill’s mom showed up just a little later and gave us a ride home. She dropped me off at my house and Jill gave me a hugs and a kiss on the cheek again. I walked to the front door and went in. Mom was still up and we talked about the evening and the movie. I told her it was good and I had a good time. Then I told her about Sara and Ann and the invitation to go to the mall tomorrow. She smiled and said it would be fine if I wanted to go.

We went up to go to bed and mom helped me take off my makeup and even gave me one of her night gowns to wear. It was so soft and felt so nice against my skin. I slept really well. In the morning I got up and took my shower and mom helped me with my hair. I was surprised at how well my hair held its curl from the day before. Mom was able to make it look just as it did with just a curling iron and some hair spray. Mom then helped me with my makeup but still insisted that I do some of it myself and would correct me as needed. She put the corset on me and tightened it up and then I got dressed in the same outfit I had worn last night and we walked over to Jill’s house. I guess mom didn’t want me walking by myself just yet.

When we got there Jill took me right up to her room and gave me a white skirt and a new top, “Dear you can’t be seen wearing the same outfit two days in a row” she said. Again something I had never thought about, as a boy I never thought about wearing the same clothes twice. Jill had on a cream color skirt and top with her heels on. Our moms drove us to the mall and left us to meet up with Ann and Sara. As we walked into the mall I suddenly got a little scared, there would be a lot more people in the mall and it was during the day when it was really bright out instead of us being in a dimly lit movie theater. Jill smiled and took my hand, “it will be fine Michelle you look every bit the girl I do” she said.

Ann and Sara showed up and we had a great time at the mall. I must have tried on dozen of outfits, from skirts and dresses and so many shoes. I had never really liked going to the mall before but somehow being there with the three of them was so much fun. The four of us walking through the mall in our short skirts and heel drew quite a bit of attention from all the boys our age in the mall. Some were even following us. It was so strange to be on this side of the attention. I felt bothered by having boys look at me that way but at the same time there was some pride that I looked good enough for them to look at me that way.

We ate dinner in the food court and by the time we were done it was after 6 pm, we had spent over 7 hours at the mall. I could not believe that there was that much one could do at the mall. Sara called her mom and she came and gave us all a ride home. I got out at Jill’s as I said my mom was going to pick me up there at 9 pm. We were just inside Jill’s house when she grabbed me and gave me a big kiss right on the lips. I just looked at her. As she spoke, “that was so much fun today” I was still in shock about the kiss when we walked into her living room where her mom and my mom were. We told them all about our day and how much fun we had.

Mom smiled at me, “well sweetie sound like you had a wonderful day?” she said. I told her how much fun it was and about trying on all the clothes not thinking anything about it. It almost seemed normal. Mom and I said our goodnights and we walked home. As we did mom and I talked about the day. When we got home mom said we needed to sit down and talk. We sat on the couch and mom started,” Sweetie, I have been thinking and while we are keeping your nails long to break your habit of biting them maybe you should be my daughter for that time” she said. “this way you can still be out and do things with your friends and won’t have to sit at home, what do you think?” she asked. I thought for a moment, I had a great time with Jill and Sara and Ann were nice even if they never really talked to me as Mike, Michelle they seemed to like. Pretending to be a girl was kind of fun and a lot better than being a boy with long red nails. I gave her a hug and told her that would be fine. She gave me a hug “let’s go get you ready for bed, I am glad to have a daughter for awhile” she said.

When we got to my bedroom it had changed, I had a little vanity table with a mirror and a bunch of makeup on it in the corner. My bed now had pink sheets and a pink comforter on top. I looked at Mom and she smiled, “Janet and I went shopping today, I have always wanted to be able to shop for a daughter. Not that I don’t love you as Mike but all moms wish they had a little girl so I am going to enjoy Michelle for a little while” she said. I gave her a hug and told her it was fine, she could spoil Michelle if she wanted. I took off my makeup and mom helped me out of the corset. On my bed was a pink teddy that mom had also bought me to wear to bed. I slept really well again and woke up feeling really good. I took my shower and went to my dresser and there I saw panties, bras but none of my boy underwear. I opened my closet and there were a couple dresses, and a dozen skirts and tops in different colors and on the floor were four pairs of heels all with 3 or 4 inch heels.

Mom came in and smiled, “I got carried away yesterday, don’t worry. All these things will fit Jill so when we cut your nails we can give them to her” she said. “I just want to make the most of this while my daughter is here” she said. I gave her a hug and kiss and told her it was fine. I know I should have hated it but for some reason it really didn’t bother me.

The next few weeks were great; mom and I became closer than ever before. Jill and I were becoming more than best friends, she would kiss me almost every time we met or part. She even asked me out on a date, her words. Ann and Sara became close friends too. Everything was going great when mom told me that I could cut my nails down and get rid of the nail polish. I was a little sad as I had become use to them and really liked them. I told Jill and she gave me a kiss, “I will be sad to see your nails go but I think I love you, Michelle or Mike it doesn’t matter I love you” she said. I gave her a big kiss smearing our lipstick.

The next morning Mom and I went to get our nails done, hers a fill and mine cut and the polish removed. I kept thinking about the fact I had had them for almost two months now and would be sad to see them go. When we got to the salon we were both shown to a table. Mom looked at the nail tech doing my nails; Michelle would like her nails trimmed down short and the polish removed. The lady quickly removed all the nail polish and asked me how short I wanted them. I know I should have jumped at the chance to have them cut but I really liked them and I don’t know why. She again asked I and I smiled at her and I heard my voice say just a fill please. They were busy so mom was two tables away and couldn’t hear what I said. The nail tech filled my nails and when she was done smiled, “would you like a clear coat” she asked. I again before I thought told her I would like red again. She painted my nails and took me over to the nail dryer. Soon my mom came over and we sat and talked as our nails dried. When they were done mom paid and we left. In the car Mom smiled at me, Well Mike will you miss your nails?” she asked. I looked at her and told her no I would not. She looked a little surprised, “after two months of having long beautiful nails you won’t even miss them a little? She asked again. I smiled and told her no, as calmly as I could. Mom looked over at me so I held my hands up with my long beautiful red nails. “But sweetie, I said you could cut them and remove the nail polish” mom said. I looked down “I know mom but I really like them” I said, “is that okay?” I asked. Mom smiled “Yes dear you can keep your nails” she said so we went home.

Jill was waiting for us when we got home. As I walked up she saw my nails and ran up and gave me a big kiss right in the lips in front of my mom. “Wow Michelle I am so glad you kept your pretty nails” Jill said. “I guess my best girl friend is staying for a while” she said. “I guess so” I said. Mom took us both inside the house, “now girls if you want to kiss or be more than friend you must be careful when you are in public so know one sees you” mom said. Then she looked right at me, “I guess I get to keep my daughter a little longer” she said. I smiled “Yes mom if that is okay with you? ” I asked. Mom gave me a kiss, “yes sweetie I love you no matter what and it would be fun to have my daughter a little longer.” mom said. And so my life as Michelle began.

My First Bikini

By Elizabeth James


Chapter one

Hi my name is Kelly and I am 15 years old. I grew up in Portland Oregon living with my mom and my twin sister Tracy. Our Dad left when we were both small leaving our Mom to take care of us. She worked two jobs most of her life to make sure we always had a roof over our heads and food to eat and most of all love. Our mom had been great. Growing up my sister and I were really close. She was always more of a tom boy and preferred to play with my friends then the other little girls in the neighborhood. Tracy was my best friend but when we got to the eighth grade she suddenly almost overnight became feminine. She started to wear makeup and dresses and no longer wanted to do all the tom boy things we had enjoyed all these years. For the next year we still stayed close but not like before. I really missed my sister. By the time we were 15 the difference between us was unmistakable. Although we were still the same size Tracy had filled out and was a beautiful young lady. Tracy spent her time now doing her nails and reading fashion magazines. I missed the long talks we had. Neither one of us had a lot of friends but even with that the closeness we shared had faded away
I remember my ninth grade year. It was mid April when mom sat Tracy and me down to talk to us. My mom who was a beautiful woman and very feminine in her own right (which is why I think my sister suddenly changed) was 32 years old. She had gotten pregnant with us when she was only 16 and her and my dad married while they were still in high school. She had been working nights in a local lounge for the past several years had closed and she had been laid off. Mom told us she would find a new job. She told us everything would be okay although I could see in her eyes she was scared. Her family had disowned her when she had gotten pregnant and she was a proud woman that didn’t want any handouts. The only family that even talked to her was her one sister in Las Vegas and even that was just Christmas cards and maybe a birthday card. For the next couple weeks she looked for work but was not having any luck. The job market in Portland was really bad and lots of people were looking for work. It was mid May when mom finally called her Sister Sara. Sarah was a nurse in a big hospital in Las Vegas. She had got her nursing training in the army. She didn’t know what she was going to say as they had not spoken to each other for more than ten years. Mom started off just asking how she was and did not go into any details about our lives and the hard time we were going through. It turned out her sister had been divorced a couple months back. My mom told her how sorry she was to hear of the divorce. Mom listened to Sarah for over an hour, I guess Sarah really needed to talk and my mom didn’t feel it was right to ask her for help when she was dealing with her own problems. This jester seemed to go a long way and bring them closer. Sarah thanked her for calling and promised she would keep in touch. Mom hung up and gave us a hug and told us it would be okay but she couldn’t ask Aunt Sarah for help right now.

A couple days later Aunt Sarah called back and talked to mom again. She thanked mom for listening and told her she had thought about calling her many time be just somehow couldn’t. Mom said the same. Then Aunt Sarah told her she was sorry she had not let mom tell her why she had called and asked what was up. Mom just told her it was nothing and she should concentrate on her own life. Sarah thanked her but said she really missed sharing their live. When they were growing up they were as close as Tracy and I so Mom went ahead and told Sarah about her losing her job and not being able to find a new one. Sarah was more than sympathetic she told mom that the job market in Las Vegas was really good and she would have no trouble finding a job. Mom thanked her but declined the offer as I said mom was proud.

The next day Aunt Sarah called back and talked to mom. She told her that a friend of hers worked in a casino and they were looking for some cocktail waitresses. She had told her about Mom and she told Sarah to have mom call her. Mom was not sure she could move right now. Sarah then told mom she also needed a favor. Seams her army reserve unit was doing their three week training and she would be gone for a little over three weeks. She thought Mom could stay in her house and keep an eye on it while she was gone. We could stay there for free as long as we took care of it for her. Plus when she got back we could stay till mom could find a place so they could get to know each other again and be sisters. She told mom she had a big house the one thing she got out of the divorce and it was way too big for just one person. Mom told her she would talk to us and give her a call back.

Mom told us about the offer and asked what we thought. I could see in her eyes she was not really excited about the idea as she had lived in Portland all her life plus I think she didn’t want us to feel pressured into moving. I thought for a moment but Tracy didn’t need any time to think. She loved the idea of moving to Las Vegas. She had never liked the weather in Portland as it rained too much. She really like the sun and whenever she could she would be laying out sun bathing in one of her many bikinis. She told mom we should move right away. I wasn’t as sure but I thought to myself if we moved we wouldn’t know anyone there and maybe Tracy and I could become closer like we were when we were small so I also told mom I thought the idea was good plus on top of it we would be living in a nice house instead of a small apartment. Mom thought for a moment and then said she agreed but only after school was out. She went into the other room to call Aunt Sarah. Tracy and I talked for a while and I gave Tracy a hug and told her I never wanted to let what happened to mom and Aunt Sarah happen to us that no matter what, we would always be brother and sister. Tracy smiled and told me nothing could ever come between us. I went to bed feeling a lot better. The next few weeks went by fast as we prepared for our move. School would be out on June 5th and on June 6th we would leave and drive to Las Vegas the drive would take two days so we would be in Las Vegas on June 8th which would give us two days before Aunt Sarah shipped out on June 10th. Tracy and I were excited as we had never met Aunt Sarah.

We got to Las Vegas and we were all tired but when we met our Aunt we were so excited. You could tell she and mom were sisters but Sarah was two years younger than mom. We sat and talked for several hours till Tracy and I fell asleep. Mom and Sarah sat up most of the night talking. It seemed that it was a lot easier than they thought to put things behind. It was as though the last 16 years had never happened. The next day I could tell mom was sad that Aunt Sarah would be gone for a three weeks. Tracy and I looked around the house and there in the back yard was a pool with a big deck. Tracy and I went out to the pool. Tracy was so happy the weather was warm and in the 80’s and she had a pool to swim in and she could lay out in the sun. She looked around and the yard had trees all around the edge giving the back yard total privacy, she got a funny look on her face. She gave me a hug and then said she could even sun bathe topples as no one could see her in the backyard of course only when mom and I were gone.

Aunt Sarah and mom came out and told us we needed to be going. Aunt Sarah took us around Las Vegas and showed us where things were. There was a shopping mall about five blocks away which made Tracy happy. Aunt Sarah dropped mom off at the Wynn casino for her interview and then took us out for lunch. She was truly happy to get to know her niece and nephew. We had a great time with our Aunt and wanted to spend more time with her by ourselves but we had to go back and pick mom up. Mom was so excited she had got the job and would be working the day shift to start, 9 am to 5 pm with Sunday Monday off so she would be home in the evening with us. She thanked her sister as it was Aunt Sarah who had helped her get the job. The next Day Wednesday we took Aunt Sarah to the airport and she left. We said our goodbyes at the airport and then went back to the house. Mom fixed us lunch and we sat and ate. We sat at the table for over an hour just talking about the move and Aunt Sarah, I could tell mom was glad they had made up and were talking again. Mom asked what we wanted to do the rest of the day and Tracy without hesitation said she wanted to go swimming in the pool. I asked mom if we could go buy me a swimming suit sense I didn’t have one. She told me as soon as she got her first pay check we would both go and buy swimming suits so we could also use the pool. Tracy almost ran upstairs to her room to get changed.

Tracy came down stairs wearing a hot pink bikini that was oh so small. There was almost nothing on her. In one arm she had her towel and the other arm held her other bikini. She walked up to mom and said I have a couple older swim suits you can use if you want to go swimming. Our mom even though she was 32 years old she looked much younger and was basically the same size as Tracy just a little more up top. Mom took the swim suits and thanked her. Mom set them on the table one was a hot pink almost identical to the one Tracy was wearing, don’t ask me why she had two basically the same. The other was a pale pink and both were just as skimpy as the one she was wearing. Mom looked at me and said she would let me choose first. I just looked at her for a moment as I must have misunderstood her. Again she asked which one I wanted. I finally spoke up I can’t wear a bikini I am a boy. Tracy looked at me they are just swim suits and no one will see you it will be fun to go swimming. Mom added you don’t have to wear the whole bikini just the bottoms. I looked at them and said no thanks. Tracy said suit yourself and walked out the back door. Mom took the suits into the bathroom to change. I followed Tracy out the back door to the pool. A few minutes later mom came out wearing the pale pink bikini. As she passed by me she gave me a hug and said she had left the other suit in the bathroom if I change my mind. I watched her get in the pool with Tracy. The two of them looked more like sisters then mom and daughter. And both looked good in their bikinis I could tell that these swim suits were meant to catch men’s attention. I sat there for a few minutes but felt a little strange watching my sister and mom in their bikinis so I went back into the house and watched some TV. My Aunt has cable with all the channels. Tracy and mom stayed outside for a couple hours. Each did come in once and ask if I had changed my mind and wanted to join them but I pretended not to hear them. We went to bed about 9 pm as it had been a long day and mom wanted a good night sleep before she started her new job.

That night while I was sleeping I dreamed I was swimming with my mom and sister and had on the hot pink bikini. I would start off just wearing the bottoms but somehow I always ended up wearing both pieces. The next morning I was troubled by my dream but didn’t want to tell either of them about it. Mom made us breakfast and we sat and ate while we talked. That is the one strong point in our family we all talk to each other about everything, well except for my dream. Mom asked what Tracy and I were going to do today while she was at work. Tracy said she wanted to walk down and check out the mall. Mom said that sounded like fun and asked if I was going with her. I said no sense we had no money we couldn’t buy anything. Tracy said we can just look around. I decided to stay home so mom said she would drop Tracy off at the mall on her way to work. The two of them left and I cleaned up the dishes from breakfast.

As I stood there at the sink washing the dishes I looked out the window at the pool and suddenly the thought of me in the pool wearing the bikini popped into my head and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. After I was done I walked into the bathroom and there on the hook was the bikini Tracy wore last night and right behind it was the one mom had worn and behind that was the one they said I could wear. This was stupid I thought and turned to walk away. I only took two steps and then stopped. I was all by myself; nobody would see me or even know. I could at least try on the bottoms and see how they looked. I thought a few more moments and then took Tracy and moms bikinis off the hook and set them on the counter. I pulled the bottom part of the bikini off the hook and looked closely at it. It was very beautiful and the material it was made of was so soft. Why not I thought so I stripped off my close and slid the bottoms up my legs. The feeling was nice and a little strange as a boy should not be wearing this. They were very tight and very small. They had a little V shape front and back with a string on both sides that connected them around the waist. The gap between them on the sides of my hip was almost 4″ inches. I felt a little stupid but at the same time it was a thrill to wear something so feminine. I looked in the mirror and I did look strange, the bottoms just didn’t look right. I was about to take it off when I saw the top still on the hook. I took it off and looked at it. It had two little V shaped pieces of material that went over the breast and a string tie that went around the back and little string loop that went up around the neck and back down. I thought for a moment how stupid this was but I was curious after my dream last night to see how I looked and I may never get a better chance so I slipped the loop over my head and then reached behind me to tie it on. This was harder then it seemed as I have never had to tie something behind my back. I looked in the mirror and the top made a difference. I looked better. I guess the bikini was meant to be worn together. I knew I should have hated it but for some reason I kind of like the way it fit and looked.

I decided I would go out to the pool and swim. The walk out was strange I kept thinking to myself what if someone saw me, what would Tracy or mom say. I got into the pool and swam around for a while. Once I was in I forgot about what I was wearing till I would get out of the water to jump back in. It was a totally new experience. After about an hour I started to get worried, I didn’t know how long Tracy would be at the mall so I decided I had swam long enough and went back inside the house. I took the bikini off and threw it in the dryer; I didn’t want it to be wet as Tracy would know then. I put my close back on and went out and watched a little TV. After about fifteen minutes I ran back in took it out of the dryer and hung it back up on the hook and returned to the TV. It was a couple more hours till Tracy got home. She had been gone for over 4 hours.

Tracy asked what I was doing and I just said watching TV. She said she was going swimming and went into the bathroom and put on her bikini. When she came out she sat next to me and said why don’t you come out and swim with me. I looked at her and before I could say anything she said mom won’t be home for a few more hours Kelly it will be just us in the pool nobody else will see you and I promise I won’t laugh or tell anyone. It would be so much fun. I thanked her but said no. I still could not wear her bikini even the bottoms in front of her. She smiled and said just think about it and went out to the pool. I thought to myself about how much fun I had swimming earlier and I knew I could trust her but I just couldn’t so I stayed in and watched TV. Mom got home a little before 6 and she brought dinner. She set the food on the table and called Tracy in and we all sat down to eat. Tracy sat there in her bikini and suddenly it flashed in my mind about how I looked earlier and what would they say if I were sitting there in a bikini. After dinner mom told us about her first day, she was really excited and I could tell she like her job. It was about 7:30 and Tracy wanted one last swim before it got dark. She went back out and mom said she was going to take a swim and said I should join them but I still couldn’t so they went out and swam while I watched TV. There was just something about me wearing a bikini in front of my mom and sister that I couldn’t get past.

They swam till after 9 pm and then came inside. They sat on the couch with me still wearing their bikinis and we watched a little TV and the news. The weather said it was going to be in the low 90’s tomorrow and Saturday and then Sunday through Friday next week it would be in the low to mid 100’s. I thought to myself in Portland we were lucky to see 100 let alone five days of it. I was glad the house was air-conditioned. We all went up and went to bed and I started to dream again about wearing the bikini in the pool with mom and Tracy. No matter what I tried I couldn’t stop dreaming about it.

The next morning Friday we again had breakfast and mom left for work Tracy asked me if I wanted to walk to the mall with her and look around. The idea of going someplace sounded good but I said no again. This time though it was because I wanted to go swimming and wear the bikini. I don’t know why I wanted to wear the bikini I just did. Tracy said fine she would see me in a few hours and she left. As soon as she was gone I headed for the bathroom and there on the hook behind Tracy’s and mom’s bikini was my bikini, I mean the bikini Tracy said I could wear.

I again put the bottoms on and the same feeling I had yesterday came back. Next I put the top on and looked into the mirror. Somehow I looked better today. I grabbed my towel and went out to the pool. It was only 9 am and I had a few hours to swim and wear the bikini. I jumped into the pool and swam to the other end. Then out again and jumped back in. I was having so much fun and the water felt so nice. I swam to the other end of the pool and turned to swim back when I saw her. At the other end of the pool standing on the deck was Tracy in her bikini. I didn’t know what to do and tried to stay low in the water in hopes she wouldn’t notice the hot pink bikini I was wearing. Tracy got in the pool and swam towards me and there was nothing I could do. When she finally got to where I was I could not speak. Tracy gave me a smile and said I am glad you decided to go swimming we can have so much fun. I just looked at her still saying nothing. Tracy smiled again what’s wrong she asked. I looked down at the water and said I know what you are thinking I just really wanted to go swimming and, but she cut me off. Kelly it’s alright she said. I am not mad I said you could wear my bikini I just am glad we can swim together it is more fun when you have someone else. But I’m a boy in a bikini. It’s just a swim suit nothing more she said, besides I have wore your shorts and shirts before why shouldn’t you be able to wear something of mine. I looked at her and could see in her face that she saw nothing wrong and that made me feel a lot better. I gave her a hug and thanked her for being so understanding. We spent the next couple hours splashing around in the pool and she was right it was a lot more fun with her there.

About 11 we got out and went inside to make lunch. I headed for the bathroom and Tracy asked where I was going. I just said to change. She said don’t you want to swim after lunch; mom won’t be home till almost 6 tonight. I said yes but I can’t sit like this. She just smiled you look great besides I am leaving my bikini on. I thought for a moment and she was right besides I liked the bikini so we made our sandwiches and then went back out to the deck and sat in the lounge chairs and ate our lunch. As we ate we chatted. I finally asked her why she came back from the mall so early. She let out a giggle looking at me. It’s simple she said, I wanted to go swimming with you. Yesterday I tried to get you to swim with me but you were too afraid so I said I was going to the mall today just so you would get in the pool. I looked at her, how could you know, you couldn’t I made sure to dry the bikini yesterday before you got home I was so careful. She smiled again yes you were except one thing. I looked at her and had to ask, what? She smiled again; remember yesterday when I went to put my bikini on to go swimming? Yes I said. Well how do you suppose mine and moms bikini got put on the hook behind the one I set out for you? Yours was the first one on the hook which means you at least took it off the hook to look at. I never thought of that I had been so careful and then left the one I wore on top. After lunch we just laid there in the chair talking. It had been a long time sense Tracy and I had really talked. She told me things about some of her old friends. And I shared things about me and we had a great time. It was turning out to be the perfect day. Finally Tracy looked at me and said do you know it’s after 4? If you want to swim some more we should get back in the pool unless you want to swim tonight with mom and me? I got up, please don’t tell mom. Tracy smiled, I won’t she said. This will be our secret until you want to tell her but I know she won’t care. Tracy and I swam for the next hour or so and then I got out and went inside, I through my bikini in the dryer and took a quick shower. When I took the bikini out of the dryer I made sure to put it behind mom’s bikini. I didn’t want to make that mistake again.

Mom got home a little before 6 and quickly cooked up dinner. Tracy sat at the table in her bikini and I was back in my jeans and tea shirt. Mom again told us of her day. After dinner Tracy asked mom if she wanted to go swimming. Mom said yes and looked at and said how about you dear you feel like swimming tonight. I just said no. Mom went and put her bikini on and then told me she had left mine on the hook if I changed my mind, there just pink shorts dear. I wondered if Tracy would tell mom so I kind of listened at the door. Mom got to the pool and saw Tracy. As she got in I heard her tell Tracy she felt bad I wouldn’t come out and swim just because I didn’t want to wear the bottom part of a bikini. I knew this was it Tracy was going to say something. Tracy looked at mom. Don’t worry about Kelly, if he wants to swim bad enough he can. We have both offered him the chance, we can’t make him put on the bikini bottoms. Tracy not only said nothing but she stuck up for me. I felt so much better and I went back inside knowing that I could trust Tracy not to say anything. They swam for a couple hours and then came in and we all watched a little TV. Mom asked us what we wanted to do on Sunday which was her first day off. Neither one of us had any suggestions so mom just said we would figure it out then. It was about 11 when we all went to bed again. As I lay there falling asleep I thought back over the day and how I had spent almost the whole day in a pink bikini swimming with my sister and how nice she was about it. I wonder how my mom would react if she new. I fell asleep and in my dream Tracy and I were both wearing our hot pink bikinis and swimming but we were at one of the hotel casinos pools and there were people all around us.

Chapter two

In the morning when I got up the dream was still fresh in my mind. As I went down to breakfast I could not stop smiling. As we sat and ate breakfast mom asked Tracy and I what we had planned for the day and she was looking right at me. I said nothing really and mom gave me that motherly look and said, dear if your sister goes to the mall please go with her. You can’t just sit in the house all the time. You need some fresh air and exercise. I shook my head yes and promised I wouldn’t just sit in the house. Mom kissed us each goodbye and left for work. Tracy and I cleaned up the kitchen and dishes and as we did she asked me what I wanted to do today. I looked at her and wanted to say so bad, I want to put on the bikini again but before I could say anything she spoke up. Let’s put on our bikinis and go out to the pool. I looked at her and said okay and then I stopped our bikinis I said. Tracy smiled and gave me a hug. It’s an old bikini and sense you are willing to wear and it and look so cute in it you can have it, my gift to you. I thanked her and we went and put on our bikinis. As we walked to the pool I kept thinking how stupid it was for me to like wearing a bikini and now I owned one. What would mother say if she found out? Tracy and I splashed around in the pool for the next couple hours. We would swim for a bit and then get out and lay in the sun. I was having so much fun. About 11 we decided to get lunch so we went inside. Tracy said she had to go upstairs and would be right back so I made us both a sandwich and took them and our pop out to the deck. Tracy came down and had a little bag with her. She set it next to her chair and we ate our lunch and talked. I really liked talking to Tracy it made me feel closer to her. After lunch I laid back in my chair but Tracy kept sitting up. She took her bag and pulled out a nail file and started to file her nails. I watched her as we kept chatting. When she had finished filling her nails she pulled out some nail polish. I asked her what she was doing. She said sense we had to wait awhile after lunch before we could go back in the pool she thought she would do her nails. She put some kind of dividers between her toes and carefully started to paint them. The color she chose was a dark pink color; I forget the name of it. It took her about ten minutes to finish and then she held out her feet for me to see. What do you think about the color she asked? It was beautiful and almost matched her bikini so without thinking I said I like it, it’s very pretty. She smiled and said she agreed so she was going to do her finger nails too with the same color. As she looked down she also notices how close it matched the color of our bikinis too. She smiled at me, you know Kelly I could do your toe nails too if you like. I paused for a moment as I thought what it would be like to have my nails painted. I just couldn’t let her do my nails I am a boy. Then I heard her say again, if you like I could paint your toes. I can’t Tracy I said I am a boy. She gave me another smile, I know but no one will see them or know just the two of us. It can be our little secret and I won’t tell a soul. You don’t think it would be stupid I asked. She just smiled I think it would look beautiful on you. Just let me do it and if you don’t like it or change your mind we can remove it.

I kept looking at her feet and they did look beautiful and I wondered how mine would look so I agreed. Tracy had me put my feet in her lap and she put the dividers between my toes which was not real comfortable. Then she started on my toes. First the clear coat then two costs of the dark pink nail polish and then a top coat. And again it only took about ten minutes. I looked down at my feet and they were beautiful. Tracy smiled they look so pretty don’t they? And before I could think I opened my moth and said they look beautiful thank you. As I finished my sentence I realized what I had just said and looked at Tracy. She was smiling back at me. They do look beautiful and don’t be ashamed of liking them. I felt better but still had to ask her, you don’t see a problem with my toes being painted and me liking it. She just smiled and said no I think it is fine. When we were young and I went through my tom boy period you didn’t think I was strange. You even let me play with all your toys why should I think any different of you. It’s my turn and you are welcome to play with or use anything of mine you like. She said as she was painting her finger nails. I can even do your finger nails if you like. That I didn’t have to think about, my toes I could hide but my fingers everyone would see. I thanked her for the offer but said no. she just smiled, if you change your mind or need anything else just ask. When she finished we laid back in our chairs to let our nails dry. With the heat it only took about an hour for our nails to be dry so we got back into the pool and swam some more. Every time I saw my toes I got a little chill and when I saw Tracy’s finger nails I would wonder what mine would look like. We did our usual swim for a bit and then get out and lay in the sun to dry off. We were having so much fun that I didn’t want it to end so we stayed in the pool till almost 5:30 before we got out. I went in and through my bikini in the dryer and ran up to take a quick shower. Mean while Tracy started dinner. As I was coming down stairs I hear mother come in the door. I had to get my bikini (I like the sound of that) out of the dryer and back on the hook in the bathroom before mother notices it. I ran to the laundry room and opened the dryer but my bikini was gone. I came out to the kitchen and Tracy smiled at me, mom and I are going swimming after dinner and I left the other bikini on the hook in the bathroom if you want to join us. Tracy had put it back for me, I was safe. What a great sister she is I thought to myself. Mom gave me a hug, I am glad you got out of the house today. I looked at her for a moment. She smiled your face and arms are all tan you might want to think about some sun tan lotion. So what did you two do today? Tracy spoke up well I spent most of the day in the pool and Kelly came out on the deck and sat and talked to me and played on Aunt Sarah laptop. Mom looked at me well at least you were outside. While we ate dinner mom noticed Tracy’s nails. I love your nails honey they match your suit. Tracy got a big grin on her face, thanks I love having my nails painted and looking pretty. Mom smiled at her maybe when I get paid we can go get our nails done together all the other cocktail waitresses have nice long nails. Tracy spoke up I would love that mom. After dinner mom changed into her bikini and went outside to the pool. I grabbed the laptop and went and sat on the deck, to surf the internet while they swam.

That night when I went to bed I saw my beautiful toe nails a rush of feelings came over me. It was like I was sitting there as Tracy painted my toes all over again. As a waked around my room I just kept looking down at my feet. The day had been so much fun and I couldn’t wait to go swimming again and wear my bikini. Then I thought to myself. Mom had the next two days off so unless I want to wear the bikini in front of her I will have to wait till Tuesday when she is back at work. I just couldn’t let her see me in a bikini. I fell fast asleep and dreamed the whole night I was in my bikini and had my nails painted.

Chapter three

In the morning I put on my robe and slippers which with my toes painted I would be wearing all the time now and went down for breakfast. Mom had fixed a big breakfast of eggs and pancakes and we sat and talked. Mom again asked us what we wanted to do. I wanted to go swimming in my bikini but knew I couldn’t with mom there. Mom finally spoke up well I want to take you someplace this morning and then we can do whatever you two want for the rest of the day. I looked at Tracy and knew she also wanted to spend the day in the pool it was supposed to be over 100 degrees the next several days. I went up and took my shower and again I could see my toes. They looked so pretty.

I went back to my room and I heard my mom say something from the hall so I said what? At that point my door opened and mom walked in and said last night I got some of my tip money so I thought we could go buy you a swim suit. I had the towel around my waist and had my slippers on but I was still a little startled as I turned to face her. She again said we could go and bye me, then she stopped and looked right at me, swim suit but I guess you don’t need it any more. I looked at her and was trying to figure out what she meant when Tracy walked in, Tracy’s mouth just fell open and she didn’t say a word. My mom came over and looked at me then gave me a hug and whispered in my ear, you really should put on sun tan lotion when you are out in the sun that long. I still didn’t know what she meant so she moved me over to the dressing table and turned me around. There on the wall was a mirror and I saw my reflection. I had a deep dark tan except for two triangle shapes right over my nipples and a line that went up around my neck. These spots were as white as could be. I looked like I had on a pale white bikini top. Mom gave me another hug I see you have been swimming dear. I looked in the mirror again and I started to cry. What must mom think, I started to apologize. I am sorry mom I pleaded. She gave me another hug, it’s all right dear. I told you that you could wear it I am not mad at you. But I was wearing a bikini mom. She just hugged me tighter; it’s just a bathing suit dear it’s okay. You really don’t mind I said fighting back the tears. No dear it’s okay, now stop your crying. Mom looked at me and smiled I guess we don’t need to buy you a swim suit any more. I looked at her and she again smiled well with your sun tan you look like you have a bikini top on anyway you might as well just keep wearing the bikini we have. I looked at her and started to say no but she put her fingers to my mouth, listen dear. You have been wearing it for I guess the last couple days and I am sure Tracy has seen you in it? I nodded yes. I love you dear and if you are okay with wearing the bikini then its okay with me, I am sure you look great in it. So why don’t we all get our bikinis on and spend the day in the pool? Tracy finally spoke up I think that’s a good idea and mom Kelly looks really cute in the bikini and it fits him perfectly. She gave me one more hug and said then its settled lets go spend the day together in the pool. We all went down and grabbed our bikinis.

I put on my bikini but couldn’t bring myself to walk out and show my mom. Tracy came into the bathroom wearing her bikini and gave me a hug. It will be okay Kelly. She knows you have been wearing it and she is okay with it. She even saw your tan lines which is the same thing as the bikini except for the color. She was right and I knew it so I said okay. Tracy took my hand and we walked through the kitchen and out to the pool. As we walked across the deck I could see mom looking at us and I started to get scared. Mom came over and gave us both a hug. My god the two of you look so much alike almost like twin sisters. I had never thought about it but we did look a lot alike especially sense we were both wearing basically the same hot pink bikini. Mom again said you both look lovely so let’s swim and spend the day together.

Mom got in the pool and then Tracy and finally me. I felt a little better in the pool sense the bikini was not as visible. We swan and splashed around in the pool for a while and I started to relax. We were having a great time and mom was right there with us almost like a big sister. I love my mom and I know she loves me but there is a special bond between mother and daughter and while we were in the pool I shared that bond. I felt closer to mom then I have in years. After about an hour mom said she was going to go lay in the sun for awhile so Tracy and I decided to do the same. We got out and went over to the lounge chairs and sat down. Mom started to put on sun tan lotion and then handed it to me and said you better use some of this dear. I took the sun tan lotion and started to put it on when I saw my feet and the dark pink nail polish. I tried to hide my feet but mom saw them. I see you did your toes too. I got that same feeling of shame again and couldn’t think what to say when Tracy spoke up. It was my idea mom I talked Kelly into letting me do his toe nails, I am sorry. Mom looked at Tracy and then me, I like it the color looks nice on you. I looked at mom, you’re not mad I asked? No dear I love you no matter what. I must admit that I didn’t think you would wear the whole bikini or the nail polish but I see nothing wrong with it if you are happy. That’s all that matters to me, that both my children are happy and I will support you both in how ever you want to live all I ask is that you be honest with me and feel you can always tell me anything. I gave her a big hug and told her I didn’t mind wearing the bikini I even sort of like the way it feels and looks. Mom smiled and said then we will get you your own bikini dear. Tracy gave us both a hug and told mom she had already given me the bikini. Mom again looked at us. You two look so much alike right now it’s like I am looking at my twin daughters. I felt so much better and gave mom a big hug.

The rest of the day the three of us spent swimming and lying in the sun like three sisters. It was one of the best days of my life and I felt closer to Tracy and my mom than ever before. At lunch mom went in and made us all a nice salad and brought it out to the pool for us to eat. The three of us sat there and talked. Mom told us about her job and then she started to tell us about our dad. How they had met in high school and fell in love. Don’t get me wrong she has never hidden anything about our dad, even though he had left us she felt we had the right to know about him but now she was filling in all the details. She told us how she was a year younger than him and she knew she loved him and that is why she had slept with him. She didn’t regret the fact she had us but wished they had waited. She looked at us, remember that boys only want one thing and once you sleep with them there is no longer anything they will want from you. Tracy looked at mom; I would never sleep with a boy. I just looked at her with a blank stare. Mom looked at me and then said; I don’t know why I am talking to you dear it’s just you look so cute and so much like your sister. After lunch we lie in the sun for a while and then back into the pool till dinner time. Mom thought we should go out for dinner sense she did have some money from her tips. Tracy and I thought it was a great idea.

We all went inside to change for dinner. I put on a nice pair of slacks and a nice shirt. I came downstairs but mom and Tracy were still getting ready so I watched a little TV. They came downstairs about 20 minutes later and they looked beautiful. They were both wearing dresses, Tracy had on a red dress and mom had on a short black dress. Both were wearing 4″ inch heels and their makeup was done perfect. They really did look like sisters. We got into the car and drove out to the Rio hotel casino. The restaurant was a little on the fancy side with dim lighting and privet booths. We all ordered and then we talked. Mom and Tracy talked about fashion and makeup and I was feeling a little left out. Somehow it seemed different from earlier. We had a great time after dinner we went up above the casino and watched the show where carnival floats go around the ceiling. When we got home it was after 11 so mom kissed us good night and Tracy and I went up to bed. On the way upstairs Tracy asked if I was okay sense I had been so quiet all night. I said I couldn’t explain it I just felt a little left out, I just didn’t know anything about what you were talking about. Tracy gave me a hug, Sorry Kelly I just have missed talking about that stuff with someone. I said it was okay and she promised to make it up to me. I went to bed and slept really well. I dreamed about the day and wearing the bikini in front of mom and Tracy. The day replayed over and over in my dreams.

Chapter four

In the morning I went down for breakfast, mom had prepared a big breakfast again. Tracy, I and mom talked about the day and what we would do. We decided to spend the day at the in the pool again and I was really happy because I could wear the bikini again.

After we ate and cleaned up we all got our bikinis on and went out to the pool we swam and sun bathed till lunch. Mom again fixed us a salad. Tracy asked her why we were having salads two days in a row. Mom smiled, we girls need to watch our weight if we want to look good in our bikinis. We all laughed and I once again felt like we were all close. After we ate Tracy went inside and came back out with her little bag again and sat down next to mom. Tracy looked at mom and asked if mom would like her to paint her nails till she could get to the nail salon. Mom thought for a moment and then said yes. Mom looked over the nail polish and picked out a deep red color. Tracy quickly did moms nails and they looked so beautiful. Mom looked at her hands, wow Tracy they look great don’t you think so Kelly and she showed them to me. I looked at mom and said they are really pretty. Tracy smiled at me, what about you Kelly; can I do your nails? I looked at her for a moment without saying anything. She smiled again well Kelly mom said we looked like twins why not let me do your finger nails in the same color I am wearing for the day. It will be fun. I looked at Tracy and then mom not knowing what to say. I know boys shouldn’t wear nail polish but then I was wearing a bikini. I was still looking at mom when she put her hand on mine, its okay honey. If you want to paint your finger nails for the day I see nothing wrong with it. Lots of men get manicures your will just have a little color and it will match your bikini. I looked at Tracy and mom again and asked are you sure? Mom just nodded. I looked at Tracy and said yes I would like her to paint my nails. After I said that I thought that I probably sounded more enthusiastic then I should have. Tracy gave me a hug and then started on my nails. It didn’t take long and we all were wearing nail polish with Tracy and mine matching right down to our toes. We lay in the sun till mom and my nails dried and then we went back into the pool. We had a great time the rest of the day

A couple times while I was swimming I notice mom and Tracy talking and looking at me and wondered what they were talking about. It was about 4 when mom said we should get out of the pool and get ready for dinner she was going to take us out again. As we walked inside Mom said Tracy and her wanted to talk to me for a moment. We sat down at the table and Tracy looked at me. Kelly, I have a big favor and please think about. I looked at her and could see in her eyes that this was important so I said whatever you need the answer is yes. You have been so nice and not making fun of me wearing your bikini. Tracy gave me a hug and said you better wait till you hear the favor. I was watching you today in your bikini and with your nails painted and I kept thinking about what mom said about us looking like twins. Would you let mom and I dress you up in a dress and makeup and see how much we look alike. I looked at Mom again and mom just smiled, I bet the two of you would look almost the same. It might be fun and you might enjoy it. I didn’t know what to say but it did sound like fun so I said I would give it a try. Tracy gave me a big hug and said lets go upstairs.

Mom came up with us and took me into her bathroom. Honey I want to make sure this is something you want to do. I asked her if she would rather I didn’t do this. She just gave me a hug and said I see nothing wrong with it as long as you are doing it because you want to, and it would be cute to see you and Tracy together as sisters. I said I wanted to do it I would like to see what I look like. Mom gave me another hug, let’s start by removing the hair off your body dear, you don’t have much but let’s do it right now take off you bikini top. I removed my top and mom just looked at me, dear it will be a long time till you can go without a top. I looked in the mirror and she was right. My skin was a deep brown except where the top was which was almost white. She smeared a cream hair remover all over my body and face and told me to wait five minutes and then take a shower and be sure and wash my hair. Then she left me in the bathroom and went to find Tracy. When I took my shower the water felt funny on my skin as what little hair I had washed away. I toweled off and went to find Tracy and mom.

When I came into Tracy room she gave me a hug and had me sit down. Mom and Tracy started on my hair. Now my hair was not as long as Tracy which went half way down her back but it was several inches long and went down just below my shoulders. They wrapped them up in curlers all over my head. They must have used 25 curlers of different sizes and then told me to sit under the dryer while they got ready. I sat there with the hair dryer blowing on my head and as my hair dried the curlers seemed to get tighter. Mom and Tracy were gone for about thirty minutes. When they walked back into the room they looked gorgeous. Tracy was wearing a black dress I think it was the one mom had worn the night before. It had two thin straps that went over the shoulders and plunge down low enough to see plenty of cleavage and her 4″ inch heels. Her makeup was different though more dramatic with a deep red lipstick. Mom had on a black dress that had no straps both her shoulders were bare and you could see cleavage on her two. She also had on 4″ inch heels and her makeup was done the same way. They looked beautiful.

The two of them started to take the curlers out of my hair and brush it out. They spent about ten minutes brushing and hairspray and even a curling iron till they thought they had it right. Mom looked at me and for a moment I thought I saw a tear in her eye but she just smiled at me. She then told Tracy to go get my outfit while she did my makeup. Now I had a strange feeling in my stomach as she started. I told mom I felt a little strange but she smiled again. All moms get a little emotional the first time they help their daughters with their makeup. She then applied a liquid which she said was called foundation to even out my skin color and make my face look smooth and flawless. It was a strange feeling. Next she put a light powder on my face as she said to set the foundation. Each time she did something she explained what it was and why she was doing it. Then she told me to look up and she used a pencil to line my eyes which was really strange to have something that close to my eyes. I was really getting a weird feeling that I should not be doing this but I didn’t want it to stop. Then she applied mascara to make my eye lashes longer. She then applied several shades of eye shadow to give my eyes depth. A little blush to add some color to my cheeks and then the same deep red lipstick her and Tracy were wearing. She stepped back and looked at me and started to cry. I gave her a hug and said it was okay I would go wash it off. She just held me and said no it’s not that, you’re just so beautiful. At that moment Tracy walked in with an arm full of clothes and stopped. My god, look at how pretty you are. Mom stepped back and I could see her eye makeup was a little messed up so she went into the bathroom and fixed her face leaving Tracy and I there by ourselves. Tracy came over and told me how great I looked, I really wanted to see what I looked like but they had covered up the mirror so I couldn’t see myself till I was all done. Mom came back, looked at me and said let’s get you dressed.

She gave me a pair of black panties and told me to put them on while Tracy and she turned around. I took of the bikini bottoms and slid on the panties. The feeling was incredible, I don’t know what the panties were made of but I really liked the feeling. When I was done they turned around. For some reason I felt embraced standing there in front of my mom and sister even though they were not much different than the bikini bottoms I was wearing. Mom came over and put the bra around my chest and fastened it behind my back. Again I felt embarrassed standing there in just panties and a bra. I kept telling myself it was no different than the bikini. Mom than put something in the bra cups she called silicon breast enhancers. She pulled some of my chest skin up so the breast enhancers fit down in and held the fleshy part up. I looked down and I had cleavage. Not like mom and Tracy but my chest did not look like a boys any more. Then she brought over a black dress she lifted it up over my head and slid it down. The shoulder straps on my dress were thicker then Tracy’s but other than that the dresses looked pretty much the same. Mom helped me get it positioned just right. I looked down and could see my cleavage. Mom had me sit on the bed and showed me my shoes. They were just like hers and Tracy’s. 4″ inch spiked heels. She slid them on my foot and strapped them up. They had such a light feel to them but I didn’t know if I could walk in them. Mom went over to her jewelry box and pulled out s couple strings of pearls and gave Tracy and me each one to wear. Mom and Tracy looked at me sitting on the bed and asked if I was ready to stand. They helped me up which I thought was not necessary as they were not that bad, at least till I tried to walk. My first step I almost fell. Mom took me by the arm, dear you need to walk on the balls of your feet and take smaller steps. She asked Tracy to help me walk around the room while she makes a call. Tracy and I walked around the room for about ten minutes but I really wanted to go see myself in the mirror. Mom came back and we walked over to the mirror. Mom gave me a hug as did Tracy and then they uncovered the mirror so I could see what I looked like. Again I felt this was wrong but I liked it. I was beautiful and did not look like myself. I looked like a 15 year old girl; I looked like my sister Tracy. Her hair was a little longer and blonde and I had light brown hair but we looked alike.

Mom smiled at both of us and without thinking said what two beautiful daughters I have. We walked downstairs mom asked me how I felt and I didn’t know what to say. I thought for a moment looking at both them. I know this is wrong and I should hate it but I don’t. I like the feel of the clothes and shoes I like the way I look, it doesn’t make sense I thought to me. I looked at my mom and said I’m okay it might be fun. My mom hugged me again; dear it is not wrong to like something. If it does not harm anyone then who’s to say you shouldn’t enjoy yourself. Would you mind if I take a picture of my two daughters? I want to have a picture to remember this night and how you looked all dressed up in a pretty dress and makeup. I thought to myself that mom sounded like this was a onetime event, I had not thought about it but right now I liked how I was dressed and looked. Tracy said yes and mom looked at me, I smiled and said yes mom. We went out onto the deck by the pool and mom took several pictures of us together and some of just me and some of just Tracy. Then she had me take a picture of her and Tracy and then Tracy took several pictures of mom and me. Mom even set the self timer and took a picture of the three of us with mom in the middle. It was strange to be outside if only in the back yard dressed this way but I liked it. We went inside and put the pictures on the computer and looked at them. We studied them and there was no way you could tell I was not a girl.

Mom gave me a hug and said are you ready dear? I looked at her and Tracy walked over and handed me one of her black purses. I wasn’t sure what it was for but Tracy showed me how to put it over my shoulder and carry it. Mom and Tracy both took their purses and we all walked through the house, I thought we were going back upstairs I assumed to change me back when mom opened the front door. I was glad that I was getting a little more time in my dress so I walked out the door and asked mom where she wanted to take the pictures. Mom smiled and gave me a hug as I watched Tracy shut the front door. We may take more pictures later but first we need to go get some dinner and mom opened the car door. They wanted to go out to dinner with me dressed as a girl. The thought excited me but also scared the crap out of me and I was unable to move. Tracy took me by the arm and we walked over to the car. I looked at them; I can’t go out like this what will people think. Tracy spoke up you look great just like me. Mom smiled; dear no one will be able to tell. Just watch your sister and try to act like her. We will both help you. Do you really think I should? Mom said yes dear, I want to make sure you remember this night. I thought for a moment and again had the same feeling this was a onetime chance so I said I would try. Mom looked at both of us, I expect you both to act like proper young ladies and then she looked right at me. Tonight dear you are my daughter and that is how I will treat you. Are you willing to do what I say? I nodded and gave her a hug. Mom had Tracy show me how to get into the car like a lady smoothing my dress as she swung her legs inside. I had never noticed how graceful Tracy was and how different girls get in cars. I followed as mom watch. She pointed out one thing to make it easier and said I did well. Mom went around and got in the car and we were off. As mom drove she started to tell me all the things I had to remember, dear remember that when a girl wears a short and sexy dress boys will look. You must remember to keep your leg closed when you sit. When you walk take small step and when you sit smooth tour dress under you when you sit. When you eat take small bites and don’t eat too fast, the list went on all the way to the restaurant.

When we got there I did my best to get out of the car as gracefully as I could while mom and Tracy watched. I stepped away from the car and looked back at them to see how I did. Mom smiled that was very nice dear but where is your purse? I looked over and Tracy had my purse and handed it to me. You have to keep track of your purse dear it contains you money, keys and some makeup in case you need to touch up your face. Mom looked at me and said, this is it are you ready for this? I was scared but nodded my head. Tracy gave me a hug and said don’t worry it will be so much fun Kelly. We walked in our heels clicking on the floor as we were showed to our table. We all looked at the menu, I saw what I wanted. They had BBQ ribs which are my favorite thing to eat. Mom asked what we wanted and Tracy said she would like salad and the Salmon fillet. Mom then looked at me and I said I will have the BBQ ribs. Mom smiled no dear they are way too messy, you will mess up your face and makeup. Your need to pick something you can eat with a fork. I looked again and decided to have the chicken breast which mom approved with a salad of course. When the waitress came to take our orders she looked at us and said, are you ladies ready to order? Tracy ordered first then she looked at me and you miss she asked? Then she took moms order. We sat there and talked for a few minutes. Mom looked at me, Kelly sit up straight dear and Tracy arms off the table. We both looked at her. Suddenly Tracy let out a little giggle. We asked her what was so funny. She looked at us; I just realized your name works with how you are dressed. I thought for a moment, she was right. Kelly was both a boy’s name and a girl’s name. Mom just smiled Have you ever wondered how you got your names? Tracy and I both looked at her. I had never thought about my name. Tracy spoke up is there a story behind our names mom? Mom said yes and if you want I can tell you. We both said yes.

Mom started, when your dad and I found out I was pregnant our parents were not happy. My mom, your grandmother was very old fashioned. She believed girls should be very feminine. When I was growing up I was not allowed to really play outside. I always had to wear dresses or skirts. I learned to sow and knit and cook. I really wanted to go out and play with the other children but mom only let me play with the girls. Your dad’s father pushed him to always play sports, I think that were our big problems but that are another story. Anyway when we found out I was pregnant we both decided that we weren’t going to push our child to do anything they didn’t want to. We were going to let them decide if we had a boy he would decide if he wanted to play sports and if we had a daughter she would decide if she wanted to wear dresses or pants. We weren’t going to force our child to be anything they didn’t want to be. We also decided we were not going to find out the sex of our baby that way we would not have any preconceptions. We told the doctor not to tell us. The one thing he did tell us was I was pregnant with twins. Your father and I talked for hours and when we started thinking about names. We spent many hours and finally decided we would each pick one name and it had to be unisex. Your dad picked Tracy and we decided that the first one born would get the name he picked because he was older and I picked Kelly. We both liked the names and thought they would be good for either a boy or a girl so you see we had chosen your name three months before you were born so it is no accident that Kelly’s name is just as good now as before. Tracy looked at mom, grandma made you wear dresses all the time and you couldn’t run around and play outside? That’s right dear, don’t get me wrong I loved her and I loved the way I turned out. I love dresses and the way they look and feel. I smiled so that’s why you hardly wear pants? Tracy spoke so when I was young that’s why you let me play with the other boys and be a tom boy? Yes dear I wanted you to live your life the way it made you happy, but I must admit I was really happy when you started to wear dresses and makeup and act more feminine. As a mother it was so nice to be able to share that with you, teach you all about fashion and makeup, how to do your hair. Tracy said so that’s why you let me dress up Kelly tonight? She smiled yes I must admit that the chance to relive that experience even if only for one night was something I will cherish, Thank you Tracy for suggesting it and for you Kelly for letting me have you as a daughter for a night. I was so touched and told her I was happy to do it but in the back of my mind I focused on the words even if only for one night. This was a onetime only for me to dress up. Our dinner came and we all sat there and ate. Mom only had to tell me once to take smaller bites.

After dinner we walked back out to the car and mom drove down the strip and pulled into the Luxor hotel casino. We asked her what we were doing and she told us she had been given tickets to tonight’s Blue man show and I thought you would like it. We walked inside and had to walk through the casino which kids can do as long as they are going someplace else and have their parent with them. You cannot believe how busy a casino is in the evening. There were hundreds if not thousands of people we walked by, it was a dream come true. We had to stand in line for about 15 minutes before we could go in. we sat down with all the other people and watched the show. It lasted about two hours. When it was over we were heading out when mom said she needed to use the restroom. Tracy said she did too. I really needed to go too but didn’t know about going in there. Mom just took me by the arm and as we walked in she whispered in my ear, honey don’t forget to sit when you pee like a good little girl. I did as she said and came out. I had to wait for them and then we all touched up our lipstick and then we left. The drive home was a lot faster probably because I knew it was all coming to an end. When we got home mom took me up to my bedroom and helped me off with my dress and bra. Tracy was standing in the doorway which made me feel a little uncomfortable for her to see me again in just the panties but there was nothing I could do. Mom handed the dress to Tracy and said, dear go hang your dress back in your closet while I help your brother remove his makeup. She took me into the bathroom and gave me some cold cream to wash my face. Then she had me put on a moisturizer, she said this was to needed to make the skin feel better after the cleansing. Then she took out a bottle of nail polish remover and started to remove the nail polish. I wanted so bad to ask her if I could keep it but I couldn’t. She finished my right hand and then my left. She smiled at me, Kelly I hope you enjoyed this at least a little. I gave her a hug and said yes I did have a good time. She looked at my feet, would you like me to remove the polish from your toes or would you like to keep it on? Nobody will be able to see it unless you are barefoot. The answer was a big yes; I would have kept the polish on my fingers too. So I looked at her and trying not to act to excited I said well if you think its okay I will keep it on for a while. She kissed me on the cheek and said it will be fine a little reminder of your night as my daughter plus it matches your bikini. I looked at her; I can still wear the bikini I asked? Yes dear sense you don’t have a regular swim suit plus with your tan lines I think it better you wear it, now off to bed. I gave her a big hug and kiss and went to my bedroom.

That night I went to bed and had a hard time sleeping. I kept thinking back over what had happened today and how much fun I had. I was sad to think it was all over. I finally fell asleep and dreamed the three of us were all dressed up and out for dinner. Then I dreamed mom had taken Tracy and me shopping and I was trying on all kinds of dresses.

Chapter five

I woke up in the morning and got out of bed and saw my beautiful toes and I was still wearing the panties from last night. Mom had forgotten to ask for them so I wore them to bed. I put on my robe but not my slippers and went downstairs for breakfast. Being Tuesday morning mom was in a hurry to get to work. She fixed us a quick breakfast and as we ate asked us what our plans for the day. I said I thought I would spend the day in the pool, as I wanted to wear the bikini again. Tracy said she thought she might walk to the mall before it got to hot and then she would also spend the afternoon in the pool. She kissed Tracy and I goodbye, as she left she said, Kelly why don’t you go to the mall with your sister. It will do you good to get out of the house for a while. I said I would think about it. Tracy and I cleaned up the kitchen and did the dishes. When we were all done Tracy said come on lets go to the mall. I didn’t want to as I couldn’t wait to put on my bikini but I didn’t think that was a good idea to tell her that. She was so supportive of me wearing it to go swimming but I didn’t want her to know the only reason I was going swimming was to wear the bikini so I said I would if we weren’t gone too long. We went upstairs and each took a shower, when I came out of the bathroom Tracy was waiting for me and pulled me into her room.

I asked her was she was doing and she just smiled. I really enjoyed having a sister yesterday and I thought we could go to the mall as sisters today. I looked at her for a moment and she smiled at me. I have picked out a white skirt and pink top for you to wear. I looked at her bed and there they were. She sat me down and brushed my hair and blew it dry. It had retained most of the curl from the night before and she made it up into a feminine style. She put a pink bra around my chest and put the breast enhancers in the cups and then helped me on with the top and the skirt. She gave me a pair of 1″ heel shoes to wear and we stood in front of the mirror. We once again look like sisters. She smiled at me, almost perfect Kelly just one more thing. She put a little mascara on my lashes, a little eye shadow and the same pink lipstick she had on. She took out the bottle of nail polish and painted my fingers, just one coat of color as we were in a hurry and we would have to remove it before mom came home so it didn’t need to be the full manicure. We again looked in the mirror and I had the same great feeling from the day before. She handed me my purse and we walked out the door. The five block walk to the mall was so much fun. When we got there Tracy took my hand and we headed for the shoe store. She started to try on shoes and ask me how they looked. Then she handed me a pair and told me to try them. I slipped them on and walked around to see how they felt. I had never understood till that moment why women like shoes so much but now I get it. We must have tried on 50 shoes each and I found I loved the ones with really high heels as they made me taller. I had always been a little self conscious about my height but now that I have found high heels I am glad I am shorter.

From here we went down to Macy’s and started to try on skirts and tops and even some dresses. We spent over an hour there. I never knew how much fun it was to go shopping even if we couldn’t buy anything. As a boy, shopping never appealed to me. I just wanted to go in buy what was needed and get out. It was after noon when we left the mall and walked home. About a block from home there was another girl about our age in her front yard. She was a pretty girl with long blonde hair wearing white shorts and a pink top. When she saw us she came over and said hi and introduced herself, Hi my name is Susie. Before I could think I said my name is Kelly and this is my sister Tracy. We talked for a few minutes and she asked if we were new to the neighborhood. Tracy said yes we had just moved here and we were staying at our aunt’s house for now. Then Tracy said we really should get home sense we were late. Susie said it was nice to meet us and maybe we could get together sometime. Tracy said that sounded fun and then we went home. Tracy and I made a quick lunch and ate out buy the pool. When we were done we went and put our bikinis on and went swimming for the afternoon. About 5 pm we went inside and Tracy helped me remove what little makeup I still had on and then she removed the nail polish from my fingers before mom got home. Tracy and I came down stairs just as mom came through the door. She gave us both a hug and we all went into the kitchen. Mom cooked dinner as she told us about her day. I could tell she liked her new job from what she said. She then asked how are day was. Tracy told her about us going to the mall and looking around. Mom smiled at me, I am glad you got out of the house for a while. After dinner mom put on her bikini and joined us out by the pool. We lay in the sun for a while and then we swam till almost 9 pm. We went in and watched a little TV and then headed up for bed. Mom kissed us both goodnight and went into her bedroom. Tracy gave me a kiss on the cheek and said we will have so much fun tomorrow.

I went into my room and went to bed. I thought to myself Tracy has not kissed me goodnight sense we were 5 years old. I fell asleep and dreamed about the day. Tracy and I were walking the mall and trying on dresses and shoes. We were becoming closer then we had ever been.

In the morning I got up and went downstairs for breakfast. Tracy and mom were already eating. Mom kissed us goodbye and left for work. Tracy couldn’t clean up fast enough. As soon as she was done she grabbed my hand and took me upstairs. She quickly did my hair and makeup. She pulled out a pair of white shorts and a green top for me to wear. We put on our shoes and we were off. We got to the mall and we spent a couple hours looking around. We even stopped by the cosmetic counter and we both got a makeover. On the way home we talked like two sisters would. As we came around the corner Susie was out in her front yard. She saw us and said hi. Tracy and I stopped and talked to her for a while. She seemed really nice and she was very pretty. We talked a little more when her mom came out side. Susie lunch is ready and then she saw Tracy and me. She came over, hi I am Susie’s mom, Susie looked at her mom, and this is Tracy and Kelly they just moved into the neighborhood. Her mom smiled, it’s nice to meet you. Why don’t you come in and have lunch with Susie we have more than enough. Susie said that was a great idea, please come in. Tracy and I looked at each other, Tracy nodded at me and I said sounds fun. We went inside and Susie’s mom made us each a sandwich and we all sat and talked.

Susie asked where we moved from. Tracy told here we had lived in Portland Oregon but moved down here when our mom got a new job. So what made your mom get a job and move here? I spoke up her sister live here, she help mom get the job and is letting us stay in her house. Well that’s really nice of her you must be really close. Tracy smiled well we actually just met her but we hope to get to know her better when she gets back. Susie’s mom smiled back she said? Tracy explained about her being in the Army reserve and she had to go on her three week tour of duty. Susie mom thought for a moment, she works at the hospital doesn’t she. Tracy said yes. She then asked us how we like Las Vegas so far. I said I really liked it here but didn’t say why. After lunch Susie took us in the other room and we watched a movie. When the movie got over Tracy said we had to get going. Susie’s mom thanked us for coming over and said she hoped to see us again. Tracy and I walked home but when we got there it was almost 5 so we went upstairs and Tracy helped me remove my makeup and nail polish.

Tracy and I went down stairs and for a change we made dinner. When mom got home she was so surprised and kissed us both. We sat and ate and mom told us about her day. When she asked about our day Tracy just told her we went to the mall for a few hours and then came home and swam. After we cleaned up the dishes mom went to put her bikini on and I asked her why she didn’t tell her about Susie. Tracy smiled we met her as sisters; she doesn’t know you are my brother. If she found out then she would know you have been wearing my close while she is at work. Mom came back and we all went out to the pool. I thought to myself Tracy was right. Mom is use to me wearing the bikini but she thought last weekend when I let them dress me up it was a onetime thing. We swam and sun bathed till it was time to go to bed. I fell asleep and again dreamt all night long about wearing dresses and makeup.

Chapter six

In the morning I got up and went down stairs and we all had breakfast like usual, it was becoming a normal routine. Mom kissed us goodbye and Tracy and I cleaned the dishes. As we headed upstairs I noticed mom’s car was still in the driveway. We both ran to the window to see what was wrong. Mom was standing at the end of the drive talking to someone. I said should we go see who she is talking to but Tracy said no we need to get dressed so we can go to the mall again. We went upstairs and took our showers. When we came out I looked out the window and mom’s car was gone so Tracy did my hair and makeup and picked out a cute dress and shoes for me to wear and we were off to the mall. As we rounded the corner we saw Susie in her yard. As we got close she came over and asked if she could go to the mall with us. She was nice and we liked her so we both said sure. We got to the mall and had a great time trying on clothes and shoes. It was a lot of fun with both Susie and Tracy there.

We got back to Susie’s house and her mom had sandwiches for us for lunch. We sat and ate and talked. Her mom was really nice. After lunch we played some games and watched a movie till it was 5 pm. Then we said we should be getting home. Susie thanked us and said she had a great time, as we were leaving Susie’s mom stopped us and said. Saturday is Susie’s birthday and I am taking her to the Adventure dome at Circus Circus to play games and go on some rides. You two are more than welcome to come. It sounded like so much fun but I said softly, our mom hasn’t got paid yet so we can’t go. Susie’s mom smiled, it’s okay dear, and I work at Circus Circus and got a special for employees so I have passes for the day it won’t cost you anything and as for a gift don’t worry about it. I thought for a moment could we do this I mean go with them for the day. Tracy smiled, it sounds great but we would have to ask our mom. What time would we leave and when would we be back. Susie’s mom smiled, we should be there at 10 am so we would leave here about 9:30 and the passes are good till 3 pm so we should be back her before 4 pm. I plan to BBQ hamburgers and hot dog and then we will have cake and ice cream. We should be all done by 6 pm. Tracy smiled we will ask our mom and let you know tomorrow then we said goodbye and left. On the walk home I finally spoke up, you aren’t thinking about going are you? She smiled why not, mom will never know. Tracy we have to be home before mom gets there so I can change. She gave me a little hug; mom gets home between 5:45 and 6 pm we just leave a little early to make sure we get home before mom. I thought for a moment, she was right we could do this. I was so excited I gave her a big hug. Tracy and I walked home and I went up and took off my dress and removed the makeup and nail polish, put on my bikini and went downstairs and helped Tracy make dinner.

When mom got home she came in and thanked us both for making dinner, she gave me a hug and then hugged Tracy and said, dear we have an appointment Sunday morning at 10 am to get our nails done. We are having acrylics I think you are old enough now. Tracy got so excited and thanked her and gave her a big hug and kiss. I didn’t know what she meant by acrylics but Tracy did and she was very happy. I must admit I felt a little left out. We sat down and Tracy and I served dinner. Mom told us about her day and asked how our day was. We told her again we went to the mall then came home to swim and again did not mention Susie. As we were finishing mom said, tomorrow I get paid so you two need to make me a shopping list of groceries tomorrow so I can stop on my way home Saturday night at the store and pick the groceries up so I will be 30 to 45 minutes later that night. Tracy replied we will do that for you, mom. Mom went to put on her bikini and Tracy took my hand as we started to clean up. This is great Kelly; mom will be late on Saturday which means we have more time for Susie’s party. I had not thought about it, we were both excited.

Mom came down and we went out and lay by the pool and talked. Tracy again thanked mom for letting her get acrylics. Mom smiled warmly at her. My daughter’s first acrylic nails, this is a special time but you must remember. Having acrylics takes work. We will have to go to the nail salon ever two week but I am sure you will love it so much you won’t mind. It was almost 10:30 when we went inside and went to bed. Again I slept all night and dreamed about wearing dresses and makeup and I was sitting in the nail salon with mom and Tracy getting our nails done. I woke in the morning and went down for breakfast. We did our usual and ate, then mom kissed us goodbye and Tracy and I cleaned up the dishes and went up to get ready for the day. Today Tracy let me do some of my own makeup as she watched and helped. She was teaching me all about it now like I was her sister. We both put on a short skirt and tank top and our 2″inch heels and left the house for the mall. This time though we stopped by Susie’s house to pick her up.

Susie’s mom opened the door and greeted us. She asked if we had talked to our mom and Tracy smile, yes we have and she said yes so we can go with you and Susie. She smiled and then Susie came into the room and she was also wearing a short skirt and tank top and heels. The three of us walked to the mall and talked all the way like three teenage girls. Tracy asked what Susie was going to wear on Saturday and she smiled, I want to look really nice so I plan on wearing a short skirt like this one and tank top and my 4″inch heels mom just bought me. Tracy smiled and said that sounded great and we would dress the same. We walked around the mall and checked things out for a couple hours and then we went back to Susie’s house for lunch. Her mom was really nice and we all talked and she told us all about what we would do tomorrow and all about the Adventure dome sense Tracy and I had never been there and it really sounded fun. About 2:30 Susie’s mom said goodbye and she had to go to work and she said see us in the morning about 9:30. The three of us sat there and talked about tomorrow, Susie was so excited about her party and I found myself thinking about Tracy and my birthday on August 12th which was less than two months away. Soon it was time to leave and we said goodbye, Susie looked a little sad but we told her we would see her in the morning. On the way home I had to ask Tracy why she had asked Susie what she was going to wear, she smiled at me. It’s her birthday and we don’t want to dress nicer then her but I also wanted to make sure we looked nice and not be underdressed. We got home and Tracy started dinner while I went up and removed my makeup and nail polish, I really wish I could keep them on and not have to change. We both put our bikini’s on and made out a grocery list while we waited for mom to get home. Mom came in just before 6 pm and we sat down to eat while she told us of her day. She gave us each twenty dollars and said it was our allowance and thanked us for cooking dinner.

Mom asked us how our day was and again we told her of the mall and swimming but did not mention Susie. Mom smiled at us, well I have one more day of work and then we have Sunday and Monday to do whatever you two would like. Do you have any ideas what you would like to do? Tracy smiled at mom; it was fun last weekend giving Kelly a makeover. Do you think we could do that again? I tried to fight back a smile as I had wanted to ask that too but couldn’t. I looked over at mom to see her reaction. Mom sat there calmly and replied, Tracy, Kelly is your brother not your sister. You can’t use him as a Barbie doll. We just can’t go around dressing his up as a girl. Tracy said I know he’s not a girl but he looked so cute.

Mom then looked right at me. We must consider Kelly’s feeling. Besides I am not the one you should ask. Tracy looked at me, Kelly would you let us dress you up as a girl again this weekend. She already knew what I wanted to say but I couldn’t. Mom again smiled its okay Kelly you don’t have to if you don’t want to. This is your decision so why don’t you think about it and let us know in the morning. Mom went to put her bikini on and Tracy asked me why I didn’t speak up and say yes. I just said, how can I tell my mom I like wearing dresses and makeup. I am her little boy. We all went out to the pool till it was bed time. Again I dreamt about wearing dresses and makeup and going shopping with mom and Tracy and about the party we were going to.

Chapter seven

In the morning I came downstairs for breakfast and we all sat down. Mom smiled have you given your sister an answer about her giving you a makeover and dressing you up? I looked at mom and Tracy, could I actually tell her I wanted to be dressed up. I looked at mom and asked what she thought. She smiled back, this is your decision. You sister and I will accept it. If you say no neither of us will pressure you to change your mind and if you say yes we will make you over and not tease you, Tracy will treat you as a sister and I will treat you as my daughter but it is your decision to make. I had to get the word out. Well it was kind of fun last week in a strange way, I guess I could do it again. Tracy jumped up and gave me a hug. Mom smiled well I guess I will have two daughters for the weekend. Mom got up and kissed us goodbye. As she was about to leave she looked back at us, Tracy why don’t you pick out a nice outfit for your brother and tonight before I get home help him get dressed up and do his makeup suitable for going out to dinner and when I get home we can go out just the three of us girls. Then she looked at me, I guess I better call the nail salon and see if they can fit you in tomorrow. You can get a manicure while Tracy and I get acrylics. Without thinking I said that sounds fun.

Tracy and I ran upstairs to get ready for the party today. Tracy gave me a pair of white panties and a pink bra to put on. Tracy put on a short white skirt and handed me the same just a little different style. She put on a pink halter top. The top had thin straps. She gave me a pink tank top but the straps were a little wider. She got us both a pair of 4″inch heels and we strapped them on. Tracy did her makeup and helped me with mine. We went a little heavier on the makeup as Tracy wanted a more grown up look so we used a red lipstick and red nail polish this time. I thought we both looked beautiful. We took our purses and walked over to Susie’s house. Her mom let us in and told us how beautiful we looked.

A few minutes later Susie came down the stairs. She had on a pink skirt that was really short and a white halter top. She had on her 4″ inch heels and her hair and makeup were perfect. She was truly beautiful. We both told her how great she looked and she said the same back to us. We all went out and got in her mom’s car and we were off. For the first time I thought about the fact I was now going someplace dressed as a girl with people who really thought of me as a girl. It was such a thrill.

We got to Circus Circus just before 10. We had to park way out in the parking lot and walk in which I really like but I don’t think Susie’s mom felt the same way. When we got inside I saw a group of 5 girls standing at the entrance to the adventure dome and we would have to walk right by them. This scared me a little but also excited me at the same time. As we got closer one of the girls smiled and said happy birthday to Susie, then the other girls turned around and also wished Susie a happy birthday. Susie thanked them and then introduced Tracy and myself to them, this is Kelly and Tracy. They just moved in down the block from me. She looked at us; these are my friends Mary, Jill, Pam, Becky and Jen). We all said hi but I was scared now. I had never thought about there being other people at this party.

The girls were all really nice and we all had on our short skirts and heels. As Jill said we will drive the boys wild. Susie’s mom gave us all our tickets and then said she would be back at 3 pm to pick us up and she left. Now it was just us girls, eight of us and we had the next several hours to do what we wanted. We went on some rides and played some game. We had a great time. As we stood in line we would talk about things, several of the girls were boy crazy and that was all they wanted to talk about. The rest of us talked about fashion and makeup and hair styles and as strange as it sounds I understood most of it so I didn’t feel left out.

When 3 pm came around Susie told the other girls she would see them at her house. Susie Tracy and I walked out to wait for her mom. Her mom was waiting so we got in the car and drove back to Susie’s house. The other girls were waiting. We all went inside and played games while her mother cooked the hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. We sat on the back deck and talked; even Susie’s mom sat with us and chatted. After we ate we played some more games. It was almost 5:30 when Susie’s mom brought out the cake and ice cream. We all sang happy birthday to Susie and she blew out all the candles. Tracy finally said we had to get going and thanked Susie’s mom for taking us and we wished her a very happy birthday. As we were leaving I noticed the clock on the wall said 6:09. We were late and mom could be home any minute. So we rush right home. As we got to the door we saw mom’s car turn the corner.

We rushed upstairs and Tracy started to work on my makeup which is where mom found us when she came in. she gave us each a hug and kiss, my you two look pretty today and she went back downstairs to put the groceries away, I looked at Tracy and said that was to close we have to be more careful in the future. We touched up our makeup and went downstairs. Mom had finished putting away the groceries so she told us to get our purses so we could go.

We drove to a little restaurant and went in. we were seated right away and the waitress asked if we needed menus but mom said no. we will all three have the salad bar and three diet cokes The waitress said she would be back with our drinks and we could help ourselves to the salad bar. I looked at mom and she smiled. We girls need to watch what we eat and winked at Tracy and me. We got up and went to the salad bar which in a way was good sense we had all that food at Susie’s house.

As we sat and ate mom reminded me to take smaller bites and to sit properly. Mom was great and helpful. She never got mad or upset and she did treat me as her daughter never once making me feel bad or ashamed of how I was dressed. After dinner mom took us to the movies. I was really enjoying being out with mom and Tracy. If only mother knew how I truly felt or maybe she did I thought. No she can’t we have been too careful. When we got home mom kissed us goodnight and said we needed to be at the nail salon at 10 am, she smiled at me you have an appointment to for a manicure. I hope you enjoy it. I went into the bathroom and removed my makeup but I left the nail polish on and went to bed. It had been the perfect day. I dreamed all night long about what had happened today.

Chapter eight

In the morning I got up and saw my pretty nails painted red and all the feelings from the day before came back. I went downstairs and we all ate breakfast. It was nice not to have to hide from mom if even for just a couple day. We cleaned up the kitchen and we all went upstairs. Mom put my hair up in curlers and then helped me pick out and outfit. She smiled at Tracy and I, you both have great legs so I guess something with a short skirt. She pulled out two floral print dresses. I think these will do. She helped had me put on a pair of pale pink panties and then helped me with my bra. I thought to myself I could do this on my own but I didn’t want her to know so I let her help me. She put the breast enhancers in my bra and again I had that beautiful cleavage. After wards she had me put on the dress and then she gave me a pair of 2″ heels. I really liked the 4″inch but again went with what mom recommended. She took the curlers out of my hair and brushed it out till I had a mass of curls and wave hair. It looked so beautiful. Then she did my makeup and I once again looked like my sister, a pretty young lady. Tracy came into mom’s bedroom and looked at me, wow you look beautiful. She smiled, let’s go girls we have a nail appointment. We walked outside and got in the car and we were off.

When we got to the nail salon we all walked in. mom told us to go pick out the color of nail polish we wanted. Tracy and I looked at all the colors. I liked the reds and she liked the pinks. Tracy asked me if I thought we should have the same color and I thought that was a good idea. We finally agreed on a color that was a purplish pink. The name was Pompeii pink by OPI. Mom came over and saw the nail polish in my hand. That’s a beautiful color dear and then she asked Tracy. Tracy smiled we are both going to wear this color so we look the same. Mom smiled well I guess I will have the same color as my girls so we all went over and sat down. Tracy was at the first table, mom at the next in the middle and I was on the end.

The nail tech was really nice and she started to work on my nails. The three of us would talk and we were having a great time. Having my nails done was so much fun but I was paying more attention to moms hand as I wanted to see what acrylics were. She trimmed my nails and then took out a file and filed them, not just the ends but also the tops. I looked back and she was gluing nail tips on my nails. They were doing the same to mom’s hand. When she got done she asked my mom how long she wanted our nails. My mom smiled, I think a ½ inch will be fine. The lady trimmed the nails off at ½ inch and they were long and beautiful. I looked over and they had done the same thing to mom’s nails and Tracy. Next she dipped a brush into a liquid and then into a powder and started to apply it to my nails over the top. I was amazed at how quickly she finished one nail and then on to the next. I looked over at mom to see what they were doing to her nails and they had done the same. I was waiting to see what the difference was between my manicure and their acrylic nails. When she finished with this she brought out what looked like a little grinder and started to grind down my nails and smooth them out. When she finished this she told me to go and wash my hands at the sink. I did as she said and came back. Mom was headed for the sink to wash her hands. I sat back down and the nail tech put on a clear nail polish. When she finished this she took the color we had picked and applied it to each nail. When she finished the last nail she started over again and put a second coat on each nail. She then handed the nail color to the lady doing my mom’s nails. By this time Tracy was going over to wash her hands. The nail tech put one last coat of clear polish on my nails and then took me over to a table and had me sit down and place my hands into a nail dryer. I couldn’t watch mom and Tracy any more so I would have to wait to see what the acrylics were. Soon mom came over and put her hands into the nail dryer next to me. She smiled at me, how did you like getting your nails done? I thought to myself this was the best thing I have ever done but knew I couldn’t say that to mom. I smiled and said it was kind of fun thanks for letting me do this. She smiled again and said it was my pleasure Kelly. I have looked forward to getting my nails done with my daughters. Soon Tracy came over and put her hands into the nail dryer. The three of us sat there for about twenty minutes as our nails dried. I really wanted to see moms and Tracy’s nails as I knew how much I liked mine and theirs must be spectacular. The nail tech came over and had me take my hand out and touched the nail. Almost dry my dear and she sprayed something on my nails and had me put them back in the dryer. She did the same to my mom’s nails and then to Tracy’s nail. She looked at us and said just a couple minutes and you are good to go. We all thanked them and she asked mom if she would like to set up an appointment for a fill. Mom said yes how about two weeks from today. She came back and gave mom an appointment card and said we were good to go. I took my hands out of the dryer and looked at them. They were beautiful and long and I loved them. Tracy couldn’t stop looking at her nails and gave mom a big hug. Thanks mom I love my new nails. Tracy was so excited about her nails she forgot all about me. I wanted to compare our nails so I could see what the acrylics were. She got into the car and finally Tracy realized I was there and she asked did you enjoy your manicure Kelly? I smiled and said yes it was really fun. Then she asked if she could see my nails. I was in the front seat so I turned around and showed them to her so I could see the difference between our nails. Her moth dropped open, your nails are beautiful and you have acrylic nails too. Tracy put her hand next to mine and there was no difference to our nails. Tracy spoke up, mom Kelly got acrylic nails too. Mom smiled yes she did I figured that you both were old enough for acrylic nails. Tracy smiled at me and in a quiet voice said, you can’t just remove these with a little nail polish remover it takes a couple hours and afterwards you can tell you had them on. I thought what was mom thinking?

Chapter nine

As we drove away from the salon mom smiled again oh by the way I have been meaning to ask you if you thanked Miss Wells. Tracy and I looked at each other, who is Miss Wells she asked mom? Mom smiled again and said Miss Wells you know Susie’s mom for taking you to the adventure dome yesterday. We both got this panicked look on our faces and I was scared. Mom knew some how she had found out. Mom again said I hope both my daughters showed good manures and thanked her. Tracy spoke up yes mom we did thank her. Mom smiled that good and kept driving.

We stopped at a small diner for lunch and went in. I was really feeling a little scared now about how I was dressed. We were both waiting for mom to get mad at us and for me dressing as a girl how disappointed she must be in me. We ordered our food and I couldn’t take it anymore. I can explain mom but she stopped me. Yes you do have some explaining to do young lady and so do you Tracy. I had to know so I asked, how did you find out mom? She looked at us both, not from you. The other morning as I was leaving for work Judy Wells came by and introduced her to me and said she wanted to meet me and ask me if my two daughters could go to her daughter’s birthday party before she asked you. I was a little caught off guard when she said daughters but she explained how the two of you met her daughter and has been playing together the past several days. I was a little shocked to learn I had two daughters but she did tell me how polite and pretty you were. So you have known for a few days I asked? She looked at me, yes dear. You should have come to me and been honest instead of going behind my back. I looked down and said how sorry I was. Tracy asked what our punishment would be. Mom looked at her and then me; you will be taking on all the chores around Aunt Sarah’s house. You will clean the house every Tuesday and Saturday from top to bottom. You will do all the laundry and dishes and starting tomorrow you will each take a turn cooking for a day. That means planning the meals and doing the grocery shopping, I will drive you to the store. She looked at Tracy tomorrow is your day, I expect you to prepare Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then she looked at me and the next day it will be your turn, you two will alternate days till summer is over. Aunt Sarah has some nice cook books you can use.

I knew my time dressing as a girl had come to an end. I again told mom how sorry I was and I wouldn’t dress this way again. Mom smiled at me, thanks dear but what do you suppose we do? I looked at her for a moment. She smiled at me again. I am sorry Kelly but Judy and Susie know you as my daughter as long as we are living at Aunt Sarah’s house you will have to stay my daughter. That is why I had them give you acrylic nails. She looked at both of us and smiled. Acrylic nails are beautiful but they take a lot of work. You two will keep them and take care of them till the end of summer and if you notice they are longer than mine because I know how hard it is to have long nails. I looked at moms hand and she was right. Her nails were only ¼ inch long while both Tracy and I had nails that were ½ inch long.

After lunch mom took us to the mall by our house and we walked in. our first stop was at a beauty salon. Mom talked to the lady and then came over to Tracy and me. Kelly dear it is time you got a more stylish hair style. I have told the beautician what to do, so you are to be a good little girl and stay here whiles your sister and I go shopping. I got a scared look on my face as I have never been out alone this way. Tracy and mom walked off and left me there. The lady looked at me, don’t worry dear you will look beautiful when I get done with you Kelly. She led me over and sat me in a chair. My hair was long and was down below my shoulders. She trimmed a little off and then she shampooed my hair. She then mixed up a cream and put it in my hair and put a bag over my head. She washed my face with different creams and then put what she called a mud mask on my face. It felt funny as it dried it made my skin feel tight. She leaned me back and started to work on my eyes. She had what looked like a little pen light and as she moved it over my eyebrows I could feel heat, almost a burning sensation. It was very uncomfortable and I was not having fun. She spent about five minutes on each eyebrow and then she smiled much better Kelly. She then took the bag off my hair and washed it again. I asked when we could wash my face as the mask had dried and was really uncomfortable now. She smiled again, let’s get your hair up in curlers first and then we will take the mask off. She put yet another solution in my hair and then started to put curlers in it. Some were big curlers and some were small and she seemed to know just how to place them. She pulled the hair so tight as she wound them in the curlers it brought tears to my eyes. Mom was showing me how hard it was to be a girl.

When she finished putting all the curlers in my hair she had me lean forward and she washed the mud mask off my face. Then she leaned me back and put a hair dryer on my head. There we are sweetie just sit here and let your hair dry. She walked over and started to work on another lady. The salon was busy and there were lots of woman and girls in there and I was so afraid sense I was all by myself. About a half hour later she came back and checked my hair. She smiled almost dry dear, let’s start on your makeup. She put on the foundation and then she put on some eye liner, mascara, a dark green eye shadow, a little blush and a deep red lipstick. She stepped back that is such a cute look sweetie you mother will love it. We are almost done. She then took hold of my left ear and said just sit still this will only hurt a little. I felt a little pressure on my ear and then heard a big pop and felt a sharp pain in my ear. I reached up and had a stud in my ear. She did the same thing on my other ear. Sweetie you will need to wear these stud earrings for two weeks strait then you can put in other types of earrings like hoops which would look great on you. She then took the dryer off my head and started to remove the curlers and brush out my hair. I could not believe how long this was taking but she finally was satisfied with the look and smiled, that’s it Kelly that is the look I wanted. You are beautiful she turned me around so I could see myself in the mirror.

My hair was a light brown before but now it was almost blonde, it was the same color as Tracy and my mom’s. It was also really wavy with lots of curls and made my hair look fuller which also made my face look smaller and more feminine. My face, the foundation she used was a little lighter and gave me a fresh younger look. My eyes were perfect and my eye brows were shaped almost like a model and were very feminine. I totally looked like a young girl. I could not believe how I looked. I went and sat in the front of the beauty salon and waited for my mom and Tracy to return. It seemed like forever but they returned about 20 minutes later. Tracy could not believe how I looked and gave me a big hug. Don’t worry Kelly I will help you get through this. Mom smiled I hope you liked your treatment dear. I smiled and said it was okay. Mom smiled dear proper English dear. I expect both of you to be proper young ladies so the correct thing to say is yes mom, I loved it. I looked at her and tried to smile, yes mom, I loved it. Then she looked at Tracy what do you think young lady? Tracy got scared and smiled, yes mom she looks beautiful. I said to mom, look at my eyebrows they are so feminine. She smiled that is how they should be and I expect you to keep them plucked like that so they always look nice. I was about to say yes mom when the beautician spoke up, you don’t need to worry about that miss Roberts. We do electrolysis here so the eyebrows won’t grow back. Mom looked at me and could see the horror on my face. As we left she gave me a hug, sorry dear I didn’t know, but there is no sense crying over what has already been done. We went back to the car and I asked Tracy what her and mom had done while I was in the beauty salon. She just smiled. I heard mom say it is a surprise for you when we get home.

We got home and mom told me to go sit on the deck and think about what I had done and she would come out and talk to me after her and Tracy had a little talk. I did as she said and went outside. All week long I have loved to dress this way but something was different and I couldn’t put my finger on it. I sat out there for over an hour wondering what mom and Tracy were talking about. Mom finally came out and sat down next to me. Kelly dear you know I love you right? Yes Mom I said. Why did you not come to me and tell me instead of going behind my back? I was scared what you might think I said trying not to cry. You know I would love you no matter what. Yes mom I said. She gave me a hug you know if you had talked to me we could have done this in a way to keep it private dear but with Susie and her mom and probable some of the neighbors thinking you are a girl you will have to live that way till we can afford to move. I started to cry. Mom hugged me again, what’s wrong you like to dress this way don’t you? I looked at her, yes mom but I could always change back now I have to be a girl till we move. She hugged me again well dear we don’t have any choice so from now on you are Kelly my daughter. What about Aunt Sarah I cried. She comes home next weekend. I know dear, I will explain it to her. Now go up to your room Tracy is waiting for you.

When I got upstairs Tracy was sitting on my bed. I walked in and sat down next to her. She gave me a hug and said she was sorry; she was just as much to blame. I said thanks but I am the one who is now forced to be a girl. I know she said but I will do whatever I can to help you. I looked over and on my dresser was a bunch of makeup. I asked Tracy where it came from. She again said I am sorry but mom thought you should have your own makeup in your room that way if Susie comes over she will not notice anything strange. I looked at her; you think if Susie sees makeup on my dresser she won’t think this is a boy’s room. Tracy said nothing just looked down. I got a really bad feeling. I ran over to my dresser and opened up the top drawer. It was full of panties indifferent colors. I pulled open the next drawer and there were bras and nylons. The bottom draw was empty. I went to my closet and there hung dresses, skirts, blouses and some very feminine tank tops. And on the floor was an assortment of heels. Everything that was male was gone from my room. I was trapped. I looked on my bed behind Tracy and there was a pink night gown for me. Tracy came over and gave me a hug and kiss on the cheek. Mom thought it would be easier if anything male was removed. The rest of the day I just sat in my room thinking about what had happened. When it was bed time mom and Tracy came in to see how I was. We all sat and talked for a few minutes then Tracy said goodnight and gave me a kiss. Mom helped me put on my night gown and kissed me good night. I dreamed all night about being a girl but in these dreams I was trapped. It wasn’t the same feeling.

Monday morning came and I went downstairs for breakfast. Tracy cooked breakfast and cleaned up afterwards. Mom and I put on our bikinis and went out to the pool. After Tracy cleaned up she put her bikini on and came out to the pool. It was about 10 am when we heard the door bell ring. Mom got up and went inside. Tracy asked how I was doing. I just smiled, a little better. I have to try to make the best of this till we move.

Mom came back and with her was Susie and her mom and they both had their bikinis on. Mom smiled, I thought sense you had been over at their house we should invite them over for the day. Susie came over and gave Tracy and me a hug. Wow you have a pool how great is that. I smiled back it was nice to see Susie I really liked her. Mom and Judy came over and sat down. Judy smiled you two must be twins even your bikinis look the same. Suddenly I realized how I was dressed. I felt a little self-conscious in front of them. After a few hours I settled down and we all had a good time. They stayed for dinner and Tracy again did the whole thing. As they left Miss Well’s thanked mom and again told her what well mannered daughters she had. The rest of the week went the same way. Mom would leave for work and Susie would come over to swim. Her mom even came a couple times. By the end of the week I was feeling better about my situation the biggest problem was that even with the breast enhancers in my bikini my breast were small for a girl my age while Tracy and Susie had nice big breast.

Saturday night came and I was really scared because Aunt Sarah would be home tomorrow morning. Mom held me and said don’t worry sweetie. I will pick her up at the airport and explain everything on the way home. I didn’t sleep well Saturday night.

Chapter ten

Sunday morning we ate breakfast and mom told me to go put on a nice dress for when they got home and mom left for the airport. Tracy knew I was scared so she suggested we put on matching outfit. She picked out a short black skirt with a pink tank top. We looked like twins and we did our makeup and hair and went down stairs to wait for them.

When they got home Aunt Sarah came in and said; where are my two nieces? Tracy spoke up; we are in the living room. They walked in and we both stood up. I tried to smile but was too scared. Aunt Sarah came over and gave Tracy a hug, I have met you before. Then she looked at me, well Kelly don’t you make a pretty girl. Your mom explained what has happened and I think it is very strange but I must agree that as long as you live here and the neighbors think you are a girl then that’s what you will have to be. So give your aunt a hug. I gave her a hug and she whispered in my ear. You look fine dear and I can help you. I don’t know what she meant but I felt a whole lot better. She said why don’t we all don’t go out to the pool; I have been waiting three weeks to go swimming.

We all went and put on our bikinis and again I felt a little uneasy being in such a skimpy bikini in front of my aunt. My aunt seemed to not notice anything wrong with it and we had a great time. At lunch Aunt Sarah grabbed my hand and said Kelly help me make lunch and we went into the kitchen. Inside Aunt Sarah smiled; let me get a good look at my new niece. You do look lovely dear. I just looked down. What’s wrong she said dear, you can tell me? I just looked at her. I feel a little stupid in my bikini. Why I think you look cute dear. But my breasts are too small for this type of an outfit even with the breast enhancers. I see dear but you know there are other options that your mom may not know. If you want I can help you? I don’t know why but I smiled, you can how. Aunt Sarah gave me a kiss I know what to do dear just leave it to me. I smiled and started to say something but stopped. She hugged me again. Tell me dear whatever you say will be just between us. I feel funny thinking about my breasts I don’t want mom or Tracy to know. She smiled, it will be our secret dear and she gave me another kiss. We took lunch out to the pool for mom and Tracy. The next few days went by as normal. Aunt Sarah worked 7 to 4 Monday through Friday and mom still had her shift which left Tracy and I alone during the week and we were becoming closer than ever before.

On Wednesday Aunt Sarah got home from work and found Tracy Susie and I out at the pool in our bikinis. She asked if I could help her inside so I went in. she smiled at me. Are you still worried about your breasts not looking good in your bikini? I looked down; did you see Tracy and Susie’s breast I asked? Yes dear but they are girls. I know I just wish mine could look a little bigger in my bikini. She gave me a hug; I have some medicine that I brought home. I looked at her, what will it do I asked? She smiled; it will just make you look better in your bikini dear. What will mom say I asked? She smiled we don’t have to tell her if you don’t want and gave me a kiss. It will be our secret dear. I smiled, I liked Aunt Sarah she accepted me this way and thought it was just fine. I don’t know why but I said yes. She took a needle out of her purse and drew the medicine out of the bottle. I looked at the needle and got a little scared. Aunt Sarah said it will be alright dear turn around and pull you bikini down. I don’t know why but I did as she asked. I felt the needle go in and then the liquid, I even got a little light headed so she had me sit down while she made a snack. Then we went back out to the pool. When mom got home we all ate dinner and then went back to the pool.

A few days later when I got up I noticed my chest looked a little different and my breasts were very sensitive and I didn’t know why. Tracy Susie and I spent the day at the pool and were having a great time. When Aunt Sarah came home I went I to talk to her. She asked what was bothering me. I looked at her, my breasts feel funny. They are very sensitive. Aunt Sarah took me in the other room and had me take my bikini top off. Wow dear you have a great tan line but everything looks fine but if you want I can give you another shot to make them not so sensitive? I smiled at her yes please. She took out her needle again and gave me another shot. I got the same feeling again and sat down. She gave me a kiss on the cheek, that should make the sensitivity go away in a couple days. I put the top back on and we went back out to the pool. Aunt Sarah was right a few days later they seemed less sensitive and I forgot about the shots. Time went by and about two weeks later I was getting dressed in the morning and I saw breast. It was almost like overnight my breast decided to grow.

The last week of July it rained every day so we had not been swimming and I had not been wearing my bikini. The weather was going to get better in a few days and I was so looking forward to being able to swim and wear my bikini again. The last day of July I was looking in the mirror after my shower and realized I had breasts. Not just the skin pushed up but they were breasts. I started to get nervous and wanted to talk to Aunt Sarah. When she got home that night I tried to get her alone but as it was raining so we were all in the house. The next day when I got up they seemed even bigger. I had to talk to Aunt Sarah after everyone went to bed I snuck into her bedroom and woke her up. My dear what’s wrong she asked? My breasts are growing, I mean real breasts. She had me lift up my night gown and looked at them. She smiled why yes dear they are she said. What am I going to do I asked? She gave me a hug; I thought you wanted nice breasts like your sister and Susie she asked? I looked at her and started to cry, I just wanted them to look bigger I said. Well yes dear they do, you can’t make them look bigger if you don’t have them to begin with. It will be okay. I couldn’t stop crying for some reason I was really emotional. Aunt Sarah had me stand up and take off my night gown and without a thought I did and I felt okay standing there in front of her with nothing on. She looked at me, dear you look great. Your hips are widening out your waist is smaller and your butt looks bigger. I looked at her, what did you say I asked? Just look in the mirror. I turned and looked, I had been so fixed on my breasts I had not noticed the other changes. My waist which was a 30 inch waist was now smaller and my butt and hips stuck out. Aunt Sarah got a tape measure from her sewing kit and put it around my waist. Wow dear you have a 24 inch waist now and then she measured my hips and they were 34 inches and then she measured my breast and they were 34 inches. She smiled dear she said you are perfect for your age 34-24-34, I think you have a better figure then your sister. And don’t worry your breasts will fill in nice. You are only an A-cup now but you should easily make a B-cup maybe even a C-cup.

I cried even more now, Aunt Sarah I can’t have real breast at least not that big. You have to help me please I begged. Honey I wish I could dear but the medicine I gave you is still working but it should level off in a week or two and you will quit growing. If we do nothing your breasts will shrink a cup size over the next few months but that is it you will always have at least little breasts. If you want to keep them as they are I will give you hormone pills to take daily to keep your levels steady. I looked at her you mean if I do nothing my A-cup will go away I said with hope on my face? She gave me a kiss yes dear they will shrink a cup size but you are not done growing. Looking at your breasts you should reach a B-cup with no problem and most likely a C-cup by your birthday which means best in the best case you will have breasts like you have now but most likely like your sister. I think by your birthday your breast will be bigger than hers. All I could do was cry and Aunt Sarah held me. You will look beautiful dear just wait and see.

I went back to my bedroom and cried myself to sleep. In the morning I looked in the mirror. There was no hiding how I looked. The rain we were having was forecast to end and we would have sunshine and hot days in three days. The moment they saw me in my bikini they would know. I put my bra on with the breast enhancers and they were hug so it took them out and I still filled the cups of my bra. I put on a loose fitting top and a skirt and went downstairs for breakfast. Mom smiled at me and gave me a good morning kiss, good morning dear you are dressed early. I just smiled and said good morning. I knew I could only hide it another day or two. Tracy came in and also gave me a good morning kiss. She looked at me for a moment and then smiled, mom I think Kelly is stuffing her bra it’s almost as big as mine. Mom looked for a moment and smiled. Honey your bra is not that big if you want to stuff it like that we will need to get you a bigger cup size. I was panicked as they had noticed and I did not have the enhancers in the bra anymore. I tried to calm down and managed to say, I just wanted to see what it would be like with bigger breasts. Well I guess under your blouse it works dear you look great mom said. Do you really think so I asked her? Yes dear actually a girl your age should be about that size. It looks good on you. Tracy gave me a smile but don’t pad them to much or I will have to pad mine. I can’t have you with bigger breast then me. We ate breakfast and mom left for work. The next few days I tried to keep covered up the best I could but Sunday mom’s day off was going to be in the 90’s and stay there for the next week or two.

Saturday night when mom got home she greeted us with a kiss and we sat down to eat. As we ate she asked what we wanted to do for our birthday which was one week away. She smiled I asked for that Saturday off so we can do whatever you two want sense it will be your sweet 16 birthday. Tracy said she wanted to have a party and invite Susie and the other girls we had met at her birthday. Mom said that was fine as long as I wanted to do that. I smiled and said that was fine as all I could think about was tomorrow when it would be hot and we would all go swimming. If I didn’t put on my bikini I loved and go swimming they would know something was wrong but if I did they would see what I have been hiding the last week and a half. Mom smiled then it is all set we can have a party. Tracy you can make all the arrangements and Kelly can help you. Then she looked at us what about tomorrow the weather is going to be hot shall we spend the day in the pool. Tracy let out in a loud voice yes I am tired of being cooped up inside I want some sunshine. Mom looked at me and I smiled yes it sounds great trying to sound happy. That night I had a hard time sleeping. I kept thinking what they would say. In the morning I put my bikini on and looked in the mirror. I did not have the look of a flat chest girl. I have the curves of a young woman. My breast more than filled the cups of the bikini. I could see I was easily bigger then Tracy. There was no escape for me. I put my robe on over my bikini and went down stairs.

Mom and Tracy were already down there eating breakfast so I sat down and joined them. After we finished we all cleaned up the dishes and mom smiled. Well girls it is already 80 out shall we go out to the pool and relax and have fun. Tracy smiled yes she grabbed me by the hand and said lets go get our bikini on Sis. I just looked at her and then mom. I don’t feel like swimming today I said. Mom came over and touched my forehead. Are you feeling okay dear? I just looked at her and didn’t know what to say. Tracy smiled you don’t have to swim you can just lie in the sun; you know how you love to wear your bikini. Tracy went and got the bikinis but mine was gone. She came back and gave mom hers and said yours is gone Kelly do you have it. I just nodded and couldn’t speak. Mom again asked if I was okay and then she noticed the strings from the bikini top sticking out from the robe behind my neck. She gave me a hug; I see you are already wearing your bikini under your robe. It is okay dear we have both seen you in it before there is no reason to be ashamed. I looked at both of them and started to cry. What’s wrong dear?

I tried to explain, mom remember several weeks ago when Susie and her mom came over to go swimming. Yes dear I thought you enjoyed that day? Well when we were all lying in the sun I noticed how nice your breast looked and how small mine were and I felt a little, mom said self-conscious? Yes I felt like I was a freak in a bikini. Well your breast is smaller than a girl your age is that why you have been stuffing your bra sweetie, she said in her softest voice? If you like I can get you some bigger breast enhancers and bigger bras dear. It is no big deal. We love you dear it will just be the three of us today and we don’t care how big your breasts are and she nudged Tracy. Tracy gave me a hug some girls just fill out faster I am sure Susie and her mom didn’t think anything about your breast size. By now I was really crying. Mom gave me a kiss and a hug. You know I love my little girl tell what’s wrong and I will make it all better.

I looked at her what if you can’t make it better I said? She just smiled, honey I am your mom and you are my daughter together we can make anything better. I stopped crying and said well that day they were here I talked to Aunt Sarah about it and told her how I felt and that I wished I could make my breasts look bigger. She was so nice and offered to help me but she misunderstood what I was saying. Mom and Tracy both had a puzzled look on their faces. I started to cry again but mom said I could tell her so I started again. When I told Aunt Sarah I wished my breast looked bigger she thought I meant I wanted real breast so she brought home some medicine from the hospital for me. Tracy still didn’t understand what I meant but I could see in mom’s eyes she knew. What did she give you she said? I started to cry, it’s not her fault mom she was just trying to help me; please don’t be made at us. I am not mad dear but you need to be honest with me. Take off your robe. I kept saying I was sorry as I cried. Mom gave me another kiss, I am not mad dear but you need to be honest and tell me. Now do as I said and take off your robe. I untied the belt and let the robe fall to the floor as I looked at them. Both their eyes got big as saucers and Tracy let out a scream, my god your breasts are bigger than mine. Mom didn’t say anything she just looked at me. I felt like I was standing there naked. I wished she would yell or anything. She finally pulled me to her and gave me a big hug. Well my dear you now have the body of a young lady. I will have a talk with your aunt when she gets home but first you and I need to talk. She told me to sit at the table and then she looked at Tracy. I was hoping she would ask Tracy to leave even though we were very close but instead she told Tracy to sit too. We need to have a family talk.

She smiled at me honey I want you to remember that I love you no matter what and you need to be totally honest with me, I won’t be mad. I said I would as I tried to stop crying. What did Aunt Sarah tell you about what she gave me? I paused then said she told me that if I wanted to stay this way she would give me some pills to maintain my level of hormones. If not then in a few months they would wear off but I would always have a higher than normal level of female hormones. She said my breasts would shrink by 1 cup size and my hips would shrink a little but they would always be bigger than my waist. Mom looked at me I would say you are about 34-26-34 dear with a B-cup? I looked down and said 34-24-34 and just a little more than B-cup, Aunt Sarah says I will be a C-cup by our birthdays but I shouldn’t get any bigger than that. So if you don’t take the pills you will go back to a B-cup and have an hourglass figure. That will make it impossible for you to go swimming without a top. Now dear tell me how you are feeling about this? I looked at her, I am crying and upset. I know dear but why, because you have big breast s, small waist and big hips or because you look like a young lady? I didn’t know what to say, I had expected mom to be mad. I still don’t understand I said? I love you dear and want you to be happy no matter what but I need to know how you truly feel. If you are upset because you look like a young lady then we will work to fix it the best we can. If you like the way you look and are just upset because you think I will be disappointed and mad at you than I need to know that. What I am asking you, do you want to totally be a girl, look like a girl or be a boy? If you like the way you look and dress and are happy then I will accept you as my daughter and from now on I will only think of you that way. Please be honest with me. I looked at mom and then Tracy. Tracy smiled, I love you as my sister but I wish you had shared this with me it would have been so much fun but I am jealous that you look better than me. She looked at mom and smiled, do you think Aunt Sarah could give me some of that medicine. For some reason I laughed at that statement. I looked at mom and felt closer to her and Tracy than ever before. I don’t think I what to have surgery but I do like the way I look and the way my clothes fit now and I love my nails and the makeup. Mom stood up and came over to me; she wrapped her arms around me and gave me a kiss. My new daughter, I will teach you everything you need to know and I will talk to Aunt Sarah about getting you those pills. She than looked at Tracy, I might even ask her for some medicine for you and I. now let’s go out and have some fun in the pool and plan my two daughters sweet 16 party.
