While grocery shopping Ezraphel finds out about Valentine’s Day much to Stanley’s horror as it now falls to him to figure out what the two can do together as a couple without falling back on the activities they usually get up to.
Stanley and Ezraphel go out on their first date at a restaurant and return home for some ‘Netflix and chill.’
With the ‘Honeymoon’ phase of their newly intimate relationship, where they spend most of their time getting it on like horny rabbits, coming to an end Stanley and Ezraphel are faced with the monumental task of actually being a couple. Monumental in that this involves doing stuff regular couples do and the first thing on the list happens to be, going on a date.
Ezraphel has finally succeeded in creating a spell that would finally see them celebrate their union in the traditional Mamono way. Stanley has his doubts but once those doubts are addressed…well there’s really only one way how this ends.
Stanley always knew that living with Ezraphel was always going to end like this. Only a deluded fool would believe a virgin nerd could indefinitely stave off the temptation of a literal sex demon that cooks for him, cleans up after him and is genuinely in love with him. Stanley wasn’t a fool but he had to make absolutely sure he wasn’t going to be metaphorically screwed over and he’d like to think it gave Ezraphel room to grow as well. Now everything checked out, all the boxes were ticked, all the obstacles cleared and so Stanley took that single step across the line he’d been threading for over a week.
Stanley finds himself at an impasse with Ezraphel. With time his fears about her have been assuage for the most part and through her own merit she has earned her place in his home. Being the pessimistic self aware person he is Stanley can recognize his own faults. With his weariness and paranoia that had served him so well in the beginning starting to become a liability he will have to look inwards if he truly wanted to move on with his life.
Enough time has passed to where Stanley was beginning to get used to Ezraphel’s presence, adapting to her tactics and overcoming them much like his mighty ancestors did with Mother Nature. So it only made sense that when Ezraphel, like Mother Nature, decides to get serious and switch things it naturally messes with Stanley’s understanding of the situation.
At that point he’s left with two choices: stubbornly stand his ground and hope for the best or try something different…and hope for the best.
It’s been a couple days in and Stanley is trying to figure out his new house guest, a daunting task for a mere mortal however unlike many before him he has access to the literal source material of her existence. Now if only the subect of his research could leave him alone so he wouldn’t have to constantly think about the pros and cons of actually sticking with his decision to play host.
