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 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 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 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
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 42: All That I Have
"Please leave my room, Minion."
The fish couldn't understand it. He'd only gone to fetch some of his master's old suits from the draw; but for some reason, Megamind had refused to let him near it. Minion had been in them before; why was this time so different?
"I wanted to modify some of your old suits, sir," the fish explained.
"You can do it later, Minion!" the alien insisted. "I'll...bring you the suits myself!"
Minion blinked. Megamind never did anything like that; it was always Minion doing the chores. It was all very strange...
"Are you hiding something, sir?"
"Of course not!" Megamind chuckled. "It's just...my draw is smelly! Yes
MegaTheme 25: Mirror
"Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the most charming Prince of them all?" Prince Wayne spoke into the mirror.
It was all he could do to remain happy after his bride, Princess Roxanne, had disappeared on their wedding day. He still couldn't understand why she had left him him, the handsome Prince Wayne and his knights couldn't find her anywhere in the Kingdom.
At least he still had his looks.
"Charm is not just looks, like you have, Prince Wayne," said the mirror, as a face appeared in the place of Wayne's reflection. "Charm can be shown in many different lights. Princess Roxanne fell in love with a different kind of charming
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
Megamind - Fate Chpt13
Roxanne sat upright, her eyes wide open, sweat dripping down her neck and her breathing heavy. Gazing around her she saw the trees, the stars, and the figures of Minion, Rose and Megamind sleeping soundly. This gave her reassurance and she sighed with relief. It was all just a nightmare; Wayne, her mother, the church, the white dress...
The teen sighed heavily. She needed some time to think. So, climbing to her feet, Roxanne walked away through the bushes and into another clearing. But her departure didn't go unnoticed. Megamind awoke as she did, and just caught a glimpse of her before she disappeared into the bushes. He wondered why she was
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
Mega Drabbles: Son
Megamind gazed down upon the newest addition to the family. The little boy's head size was somewhere in between his and Roxanne's like Megan's, and his skin was unsurprisingly blue. He had black eyebrows, and when he opened his eyes, they were blue.
"What's his name?" Megan asked from where she was sat with Minion.
"I think this time, the baby should be named after the mother," Megamind decided. "I like Roxas."
Roxanne smiled up at him, before her gaze travelled back to the little boy in her arms.
"I think it suits him," she agreed wholeheartedly. "Our little Roxas."
Mega Drabbles: Like Father...
Megamind sat at his desk, pondering over why the remote for his newest invention wouldn't work. Next thing he knew, he heard the light patter of little feet, and Megan was by his side.
"That doesn't look right."
"I know," he agreed. "I just can't seem to get the admitted signal to connect with my clean-up ray."
Meanwhile Megan had been thinking, until she suddenly jumped up happily.
She hurried off to another part of the Lair, no doubt to fetch something, and Megamind couldn't help but smile. It was like Roxanne always said: like father, like daughter.
Mega Drabbles: Over Protective
One little sneeze from his daughter caught Megamind's attention, and instantly he was by her side, feeling her temperature.
"You're head's warm!" he realized. "Oh no, you're sick! You're definitely not going into sh-chool today! You could have a cold! Or the flu! Or pneumonia!"
"OK, how can you pronounce pneumonia when you can't even pronounce school?" Roxanne questioned, entering the room.
"And I only sneezed, Daddy!" Megan giggled. "My nose was all tickely!"
Silence hung in the air.
"Is that an illness too?"
Roxanne burst out laughing whilst Megan attacked her father's middle in a hug.
Mega Drabbles: Babysitting
It was midnight when Megamind and Roxanne returned from their date, but when they did, they found the Lair in a complete mess. Broken pieces of metal everywhere, along with burn marks all other the walls.
And in the middle of it all sat an oblivious Megan, and a very tired Renn.
"Remind me never to babysit for you guys again," she informed them, making her way out the door. "Oh, and if Metro ever has kids, tell him I'm never babysitting for him, either!"
Megamind and Roxanne just stared blankly as the teenager slammed the door shut behind her.
Mega Drabbles: Cards
"So this is a Holiday kidnapping?" Roxanne asked as Minion placed a Santa hat on her head.
"Absolutely right!" Megamind proclaimed, finger in the air.
"Well since it is, Minion, could you pull out two cards from my purse? They're for you both."
So Minion did this, and handed one to Megamind before they opened them. Both cards were hand made, and both had little messages on the inside. While Minion's said something about his home cooking, Megamind blushed at what his said.
He couldn't look at Roxanne without his face blushing with embarrassment for the rest of the kidnapping.
Mega Drabbles: Iris
Roxanne had been getting ready for her date when Bernard had shown up at her door. She'd listened carefully and calmly to him...until he'd turned his watch.
Now she stared openly at Megamind, unsure what to think. He'd been Bernard all this time. He'd killed Metro Man, took over the city...
But he'd cleaned the park, the streets, reopened the banks...
"I'm so sorry," he told her, an utterly defeated look on his face.
Actions spoke louder than words. Roxanne proved this by taking a step forwards and kissing him.
He'd told the truth, and that was what mattered.
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
Mollie's Ribbons I grew up in a small town just a few dozen miles from the closest water sourcea slowly shrinking aquifer that squatted underneath the seat of Thompson County, our neighborly border. Fortunately, we hadn't yet been quite as devastated by our annual droughts as those in Oklahoma and Texas. Rumors would occasionally drift in with a tumbleweed traveler about how bad the deep South had dried up into nothing but an old dusty lake bed, but these flashes of news were too few and too far between to be counted on as up to date or even true.
Once, I heard one of my distant cousins, a boy by the name of Harold, was said to have been caug
