Brittany always found Ikea exciting, even if she was just going in to look and even when she was younger. It was like Disney Land, but with furniture and bed clothes. Now is a little bit different though, her and Santana are going together, as a couple shopping for their own place. All of their things had finally been unpacked and put in their places, and the jungle of boxes had been disassembled and removed from the living room. Their new home was actually starting to look and feel like home, so now was the next step. All of the walls were plain white and rather bare, aside from a few pictures they had hung in places. They’ve only really been living there a few weeks, but Brittany was starting to feel like she was taking up residence in some sort of sterile science lab and being the happy, bubbly Brittany S. Pierce, her living arrangements were going to need a bit more colour and livening up. With a stop for paint already out of the way, Ikea is next on the list. “Remember.” Brittany warns with a large smirk, glancing sidelong at her fiance beside her. “We are on a budget, got it?” She lifts Santana’s hand in her own and kisses just below the sparkling ring in her finger. “Wouldn’t want to have to call off the wedding.”
Santana rolls her eyes at Brittany’s antics, playfully snatching her hand back with a scandalized scoff. “Like you would. You’re totally excited to be marrying this fine piece of ass.” She swats at Brittany before linking their fingers back together and moving towards the entrance to Ikea. “You’d totally marry me at the courthouse if you had to.” Her smile is smug, triumphant, though a small pang of insecurity flickers through her even as the words leave her lips. Damn David and his dumb mouth and British worthy teeth. “Besides, I don’t even know what you’re talking about, I have no problems staying within budget.” The mass of bags currently sitting on the floor of their new living room begs to differ that particular point, but Santana’s not about to concede. She’s allowed to be excited. She’s been waiting to start her life with Brittany for over eight years. As far as she’s concerned this whole production is so far overdue. So what if she wants to do it a little justice.
