"Hambo is my only friend"
I, Marceline Abadeer, am the vampire Queen! I've been hanging around solo in the land of Ooo for over a thousand years, and I've never needed anyone. It's just me, my Axe-bass, and of course, Hambo. Hambo and I go way back, he's always kept me company. He's been with me all these years, even when times were hard and I can't thank him enough for it. Sure I sometimes feel a little lonely, but who needs friends? You can't depend on people, you can't trust them. The relationship he and I have is different though, I know I can always confide in him and he'll never tell a soul. I wish my relationship with my dad could be this good…
After the French fry incident, I couldn't bear to speak to my dad. I mean seriously, who eats their daughter's fries? I realized then that life is full of disappointments, and you're better off alone. Determined to stay strong, I've wandered around the next few years jamming on my bass and ruling the undead with an iron fist. Things came easy and life was simple, but why do I always feel like there's something missing? I tried to convey my feelings to Hambo but being a teddy bear and all, he never answered me back. For the first time ever, I felt frustrated with him and suddenly so alone! And then one day I met them…a human boy named Finn and his best friend, a magical dog named Jake. They are totally weird but when I'm around them, that mysterious emptiness I feel starts fading away.
Time passes, and these guys keep hanging around and for some reason…I don't mind. They aren't like other people, they tolerate me even when I'm nasty to them, and they respect me and who I am. At first, we couldn't stand each other, but I came to appreciate Finn's bravery and defiance. He and I both share a passion for adventure and danger, but wait…I never needed friends, right? Then why has everything changed, why am I allowing these people in? Suddenly afraid of all these new feelings, I made a return to the Nightosphere, hiding within my room and making every effort to avoid my dad. As I lay in bed, I turn to look at Hambo. "I've only ever needed you…than again; you're the only one I've ever had. What should I do now Hambo?" And then it hit me. For the first time in over a thousand years, I have the opportunity to be friends with people who are chill and can keep it real, why push that away? The times I've spent with Hambo are precious to me, but maybe it's time I move on. "I'll… see you later buddy", and with that I gave him a good hug and made my way back to Ooo.
"Yo Marceline, where have you been?" I look up to see Finn and Jake walking towards me and I try my best to hide a smile. "Oh you know, hanging around. I had to say bye to an old friend". Jake looks at me curiously, "where's your friend going?" "Oh, it's complicated. All I know is that he'll always be there when I need him." Finn and Jake stare blankly at me, obviously confused. I roll my eyes and whip out my Axe-bass. "Whatever, how about a jam session guys?" jumping with excitement, Finn starts beat boxing and Jake proceeds to play his Viola. Ah, I can get used to this… "I dedicate this song to Hambo!"
