MegaTheme 39: Through the Fire
Roxanne coughed as the smoke swirled around her, and behind her, she could hear the crackling flames as they consumed the Lair and everything Megamind had created. She had left the ropes and the kidnapping chair behind, and was trying to find her way out.
The kidnapping had gone as it had usually gone until Megamind's newest creation had exploded. Roxanne had been able to wriggle from her bonds. She briefly wondered what had happened to Megamind and Minion. A feeling of dread passed through her at the thought of the blast killing them; despite the fact that they had kidnapped her too many times to count...she didn't wish for them to be dead. They didn't deserve it. In reality, they really were quite harmless.
She tried to crawl across the floor, holding her breath for as long as she could, but eventually she had to breathe and the smoke entered her system. The woman coughed again, and fell to the floor as her vision became clouded. She tried to get up, determined to make it out
MegaTheme 8: Kick in the Head
"And what's more, Miss Ritchi, is that you can put a stop to this," Megamind continued, after explaining his evil plan. "Just agree to be my Evil Queen, and I will leave your boyfriend alone and this city."
Roxanne rolled her eyes; first he impressed her, then he made a fool of himself with the chair, and now he was giving her the Evil Queen lecture again.
On a Sunday morning too.
"After all, you're a fine...specimen," he said, his green eyes staring at her legs.
Her jaw dropped. That's it!
"You don't have to give me your answer now!" he continued. "In fact, why don't you give it after I've shown you the power I have-"
He was cut off when her leg came up and kicked him in the head.
MegaTheme 6: Danger Ahead
The car drove right past the sign, and Roxanne managed to look behind her from her position in the front seat. Her hands were tied, preventing her from whacking her kidnapper for ignoring the sign.
"You did read that sign, right?" she asked.
"Miss Ritchi, I read that sign before you did," he explained, before tapping his large head with a finger. "My head is big for a reason; it can read things faster than a mere human could."
"Well, that "brilliant" brain of yours obviously didn't read the sign properly," said Roxanne.
"Oh, you mean the 'Danger Ahead' part?" he said. "Minion put that there to keep people out. There's nothing to worry about."
Five minutes later...
The invisible car was hanging over a cliff, and neither captive nor kidnapper dared to move.
"Nothing to worry about, huh?"
Megamind began to climb into the back seat, only to be interrupted by Roxanne clearing her throat. He looked at her, and she gestured to her wrists. The villain
MegaTheme 26: Broken Pieces
When Megamind saw the broken pieces of the glass scattered across the apartment floor, he knew something was wrong.
"Megamind, you're the last person I want to see," came Roxanne's voice, and the villain turned to see his kidnapping victim in the doorway that led to her bedroom. "Just go. I'm not in the mood to be kidnapped."
She turned and slammed the door shut behind her without another word. Usually Megamind would ignore her pleas and just kidnap her anyway. But he'd seen it in her eyes; something was definitely wrong, and he wanted to know what.
Putting away his gun he cautiously made his way over to the bedroom door and opened it, to find Roxanne lying in her bed with her face buried in a pillow. When she heard the door open, the women picked up her other pillow and tossed it at the villain, who ducked to avoid it.
"I said go!" she yelled, not even bothering to look up and face him.
"Roxanne?" Megamind began, his voice unusually soft. "What's wrong?"
Realizing she'd never heard Me
MegaTheme 14: Multitasking
Roxanne awoke to the sound of typing, humming, and the electronic beeping noises of a computer. Her eyes opened, and before her, she saw Megamind sat at his desk. But what she witnessed impressed her.
Megamind was typing on two different computers, connected to two different screens, and his eyes passed between each one so quickly she was surprised how he could keep up. And on top of that, he was humming a tune.
That head was big for a reason.
She would have suspected him of showing off...but he didn't know she was awake, and there was no one else around to show off to. Not even Minion but then again, the fish had probably seen this hundreds of times, so that wouldn't count if he was present.
His eyes glanced over at her, and noticing her awake, he smiled it was the usual smile, forced, whenever he was trying to act evil.
"Miss Ritchi! Glad you're awake!"
He finished off what he was doing without even looking and turned his full attention on her. And on top of that, he di
MegaTheme 24: Are You Challenging Me?
"Are you challenging me?"
"Maybe. Maybe not."
Megamind smirked. He was glad that Roxanne was enjoying the date, despite the fact that he'd pretty much forced her into it. The pair of them were actually having a really good time.
This came as a surprise for Roxanne. She knew that Megamind could be entertaining sometimes, but that entertainment always bordered on annoying. And sometimes, he was just downright annoying altogether. But now... She didn't know what to say.
"Of course I can catch more grapes in my mouth than you!" Megamind went on to say.
It was dark, and the pair were having a picnic which Minion had packed for them outside the old observatory. The night was clear and warm, and the stars shone down upon the pair as if lightening them up in approval.
Raising her eyebrows at the alien's comment, Roxanne picked up a handful of grapes.
"OK then, Mr. Smarty-Pants. Catch!"
She threw them all at him. Megamind, with his mouth open ready, caught only one while the rest thudded
Mega Drabbles: Thunder
The thunderstorm had been very unexpected. One minute the sky was clear, but the next, black clouds had gathered and the rain was hammering down. Two twelve year old kids had been out playing, along with a fish, and were forced to take cover under a bush to keep dry.
Lighting filled the sky, followed by a clash of thunder. Roxanne yelped with fright, clutching her blue friend with white knuckles. The boy looked down at his friend, before he put an arm around the girl and held her close.
She was his only human friend. He would protect her.
Mega Drabbles: Attachment
There was a knock at the door, before Roxanne's head appeared from behind it.
"Sorry I'm late," she apologized to her boss. "My boyfriend has...attachment issues."
Her boss was about to ask why, but bit his lip to stop his laughter when the rest of his star reporter appeared. Her arms were pinned down by her sides due to said boyfriend hugging her, his arms around her tightly, his face pressing against her back and eyes closed.
"It's not funny," she insisted as her boss began laughing. "He just...didn't want me to leave. Our...first time last night."
Mega Drabbles: New Cameragirl
"Does your new camera operator have to be female?" her boss asked.
"Absolutely," Roxanne replied, not backing down.
Her boss sighed, before he gave in.
"OK, fine," he spoke with an annoyed tone. "The only one we've got is Kirsty Kennedy. She's twenty-two years old and still only a rookie."
Roxanne looked at the picture on the girl's files. Kirsty was a young and pretty African American girl.
"She'll do," Roxanne accepted immediately. "Believe me, it'll save you from the complaints you'll definitely receive when my boyfriend dehydrates one of the cameramen if one even tries flirting with me."
Megamind 100 Word Challenge 871. Obsession
"Minion, can we please leave?" Megamind begged. They were at the thrift store where Minion was feeding his obsession; fish bowls.
"Sir, we just got here and besides," Minion said turning to him "we went to Lowes and Sears. Now it's the thrift store then the Kitchen Corner."
Megamind looked at the creepy cat woman, behind the counter, who owned the store. "Can we just leave? That woman over is giving me the cripes!"
"The creeps, Sir."
"That one too."
Minion rolled his eyes as the woman started to hiss. Megamind and Minion looked at her. "Yeah we can leave."
72. Mischief Managed
"Time to go back to jail, Megamind." Metro Man said, dropping the blue villain next to the police.
Megamind smiled despite being carted off to jail "I promise it won't be a long stay."
Metro Man ignored him saying "Mischief managed."
Roxanne looked at him from where she had been set down before rolling her eyes a bit. "I must say a job well done!" She said at last.
"Well, all in a day'
MegaTheme 34: Out Cold
When Megamind awoke, there was an ice pack upon his head, strapped in the place where the dull aching pain was admitting from. He groaned.
The alien looked to the side, and from around the corner Minion appeared, looking a little worried, but now relieved to see that his master had awoken.
"Are you all right, sir?" he asked.
"Yes," replied Megamind, as he sat up on the couch. "What happened?"
"Miss Ritchi kicked you in the head, sir," the fish explained. "You've been out cold for an hour."
Megamind groaned again. I knew I shouldn't have checked her out. Not that I could resist...
"Where is she now?"
"I took her home."
The alien nodded.
"OK, good," he said. "But next time, Minion? Tie her legs together. And to the chair."
