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
MegaTheme 5: Waiting
The lair was silent as the three waited.
Roxanne was tied to her chair once more, one leg crossed over the other while she looked at something rather interesting on the ceiling. Minion was stood behind her, twiddling his fingers patiently.
Megamind was, at first, spinning in his chair, but then he began to tap his foot impatiently, followed by an exaggerated sigh.
"What's taking that big oaf so long?" he demanded.
Roxanne rolled her eyes.
"I told you already; he's helping with an evacuation in Japan. One of the volcanoes is about to erupt," she explained.
"And that's more important to him rather than saving his girlfriend?" the alien qu
MegaTheme 21: Obsession
Roxanne knew there were plenty of other women in the city, and that she wasn't the most gorgeous looking out of all of them...and yet, she had three guys obsessing over her, two of which weren't even human. And the third was just a creep.
She used to wonder why she couldn't find a normal guy to be with, but this desire soon faded when she discovered that normal was boring. Imagining a life with a normal guy just didn't work; there wouldn't be enough excitement in her life, and she wouldn't stick around for very long.
But what did the three un-normal guys see in her? That was what she wanted to know. Did they see the same as the other did, o
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.
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 wh
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
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 b
MegaTheme 32: Can You Hear Me?
Roxanne stared at her once kidnapper as he laid motionless helpless on the bed in the prison infirmary, hooked up to life support. This was her first visit after the accident...and after Megamind's operation in order to detach his smashed up foot.
The reporter didn't know what to say. This was her kidnapper; the guy who had made her life miserable from day one of her reporting career. He didn't deserve her sympathy. He didn't deserve to be saved.
A tear fell from her eye, and Roxanne quickly wiped it away. She didn't want to cry over him.
"Congratulations, Megamind," she spoke bitterly. "You've finally scared me. For some rea
MegaTheme 16: Eyes
"Put your red dress on."
Roxanne gave her mother a look.
"Why that one?"
"You have four dresses, honey," she said. "One's red, one's purple, one's green and one's blue. Blue is his colour, and purple's too close to it."
"What about the green one?"
"His eyes," her mother said with irritation. "Come on, Roxanne. You've been kidnapped by him many times. You should know what colour his eyes are."
Roxanne did know. But she liked the colour of his eyes. There were so green...so vibrant... She wanted to tell her mother that she liked his eyes and she liked the colour of his skin too, for that matter but she knew it wouldn't be wo
MegaTheme 19: Annoyance
Watching as the police took Megamind away yet again, Roxanne found herself annoyed by everything. It wasn't unusual; she was always annoyed when it came to the kidnappings, but when she got back to her apartment, it all came pouring out into an open Word document on her laptop.
She was annoyed how Megamind had kidnapped her on her day off, ruining her plans with her friends.
She was annoyed that Minion had ripped her best shirt (she knew it was accidentally, but still).
She was annoyed by the effect the spray had on her.
She was annoyed by how helpless she always felt whenever he kidnapped her.
She was annoyed by his smug grin as he circ
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 th
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
MegaTheme 48: Puzzle
It was a puzzle.
A puzzle not even he could solve.
Megamind had gone to kidnap Roxanne instead of Minion; last time the fish had messed up (he insisted) by not tying Miss Ritchi up correctly and allowing her to escape and fight back (even though the ropes had been cut, not undone). The fish couldn't do anything right. So Megamind had come alone.
But this sight...was not what he expected to see. Roxanne was fast asleep in bed, but as cute as the sight was, that wasn't what took him by surprise.
She was snuggling a teddy bear, but not just any teddy bear. She was snuggling the one they had made of him exactly like the one she had bou
MegaTheme 30: Words
"Roxanne can you please -stop laughing-!" Megamind half yelled, before coughing from the sudden high pitch. "-There is nothing funny- about a young man -going through- his voice -breaking!-"
But Roxanne couldn't help herself. Having known her friend for so long, and his high pitched voice, it was hilarious how it was suddenly deepening every few words. She knew it was only naturally...but still funny.
"Sorry, Megs," she apologized, wiping the tears of laughter from her eyes. "I'll try not to laugh at your...funny words again."
"Good," he said with a nod of his head. "As I was saying, the parts I require for Minion's new suit will take -yea
Megamind - Fate Chpt16
They were interrupted by a crash.
Spinning round, Megamind held Roxanne behind him as Wayne burst through the double doors, the anger shown in his eyes as he scanned the room. Kids backed away screaming; they had never seen the most popular boy in school act like this. Wayne's eyes grew dark when they settled upon Megamind and Roxanne standing together.
"What's the plan?" Roxanne whispered, her face right next to her love's ear.
"Um, that disguise thing was the plan," Megamind explained rather hesitantly. "Now I'm just winging it."
The two of them cowered before the floating boy as he drifted closer and closer. Bernard and Jorrie b
Mega Drabbles: Enveloped
All was quiet, and Roxanne found this suspicious as she walked through the Lair. She had finished early at work and had wanted to visit her boyfriend, since he wasn't fighting a new villain today.
But he, and Minion for that matter, were nowhere to be found.
"Huh," she spoke aloud, entering the part of the Lair where the monitors were set up.
She didn't notice a figure lurking in the shadows. And when she least suspected it, Megamind leapt out from behind and grabbed her waist playfully, enveloping her in a hug. She cried out and laughed out loud.
Mega Drabbles: Don't Go 5
Roxanne remained still for a long time. She had seen the look in his eyes; she had been aware of his crush on her back in High School, and possibly even during kidnappings, but she never suspected the feeling was this deep. Not even when he gave her that look of utter defeat.
"Really?" she asked with doubt.
"Yes!" he replied frantically. "I love you, Roxanne. More than I've ever loved anything before. You've changed me. You've made me not want to be the bad guy any more. You-"
It was Roxanne's turn to cut him off with a kiss.
Mega Drabbles: Don't Go 4
"Megamind, let me go!" Roxanne pleaded desperately, finally having enough as she tried to pull away. "Why are you doing this? Are you this arrogant? This selfish? You've caused nothing but trouble from day one, and now-"
She was cut off when the villain pressed his lips against hers, silencing her in a kiss. Roxanne's eyes widened, and for a second she tried to pull away. But Megamind wouldn't let her, and nor would her brain. She was angry at herself for shutting her eyes and sinking into it.
His lips left hers and he whispered:
"I love you, Roxanne."
Mega Drabbles: Don't Go 3
All that could be heard was the rain pouring down around and on them as Megamind held Roxanne close. He partly wrapped his cape around her, trying to keep her dry and warm not that it would matter. She was already wet.
He closed his eyes and just bathed in the feeling of holding her close. It was even better than the first time she hugged him; that had been short and sweet. Now it was so much more.
She tried to pull away, but he pulled her back, keeping her close.
He couldn't let her leave again. Not ever.
Mega Drabbles: Don't Go 2
When the hand rested on her shoulder, Roxanne swung back round with a gasp. She hadn't expected for him to follow. The utterly defeated look on his face had been enough to reassure her that he wouldn't.
"Stop following me!" she snapped at him; for moment he hesitated, but his determined expression returned. "Why can't you just leave me alone?"
She hit him, pushing him away like she had done before. But instead of backing away like she expected, he grabbed her, wrapped his arms around her tightly and held her close.
Roxanne was too shocked to try backing away.
Mega Drabbles: Don't Go 1
The rain poured down as she walked away. The villain watched her go, his green eyes watching her every move as she, both literally and figuratively, walked out of his life. It took everything he had to stop himself from breaking down.
But as he watched her, he realized that he just couldn't let her go. Wouldn't let her go. She would not leave him like this. He wouldn't allow it.
He began to walk after her. Minion was wrong. Roxanne was wrong. He wanted to be with her.
For the first time, the bad guy would get the girl.
MegaTheme 35: Spiral
"So Miss Ritchi-" Spin, "you must be wondering-" Spin, "what I have-" Spin, "instore for you-" Spin, "today."
"Seriously, what are you doing?"
Megamind stopped spinning in his chair, giving her a confused look.
"Why Miss Ritchi, I am spinning in my chair!" he informed. "What's the point of having one if you don't spin in it? I will admit, the human race has a slight chance of surviving, considering they invented these things!"
He then spun himself round faster than before, letting out a happy cry.
But it died as he slowed down and saw Roxanne raising an eyebrow at him.
"Um," he said hesitantly, wondering if he should risk injur
