Genis' Point of View
I'm finally in college. Yeah, I saved the world 3 years ago and eliminated discrimination against half-elves, but while all that is real nice all I really want is a girlfriend. Being fifteen and not having a girlfriend isn't exactly cool. It's not like I've never had one before, though. I had my first girlfriend two years ago…
Alice Cameron, the prettiest girl I had ever seen. She had long white hair and gleaming green eyes and a figure that could make Sheena Fujibayashi jealous. Of course I liked her, and of course I wanted to work up the courage to tell her, but I was the only one who realized he wasn't the only nerd who wanted her. Who wouldn't want to go out with a hottie like her? One day I finally decided to make my move. She was exchanging books in her locker. I appeared beside her as she closed it.
"Hey there, Alice. I couldn't help but notice that you were walking around all alone. Perhaps I could accompany you?" She looked me up and down and shrugged.
"Sure, whatever," she said in a normal tone. I walked along beside her.
"So, uh, what do you like to do?" I asked.
"Oh, you know, sit around and do stuff."
"If I told you, you'd probably laugh." I was surprised to hear that coming from her.
"Alice, I won't laugh, I'm not that kind of guy."
"Well," she looked embarrassed, "I… practice with a Kendama. You know, trying to cast spells and stuff." My heart stood still. Alice practices with a Kendama too?
"Okay, you've gotta be yankin' me," I replied.
"See, I told you you'd laugh at me!"
"No, I meant that because I practice Kendama too! I'm an expert!"
"Really? Maybe after school you can help me out with it. I'm not all that good." Those were exactly the words I wanted to hear. "Meet me in the back after school." As soon as school was over I was in the back of the school waiting for her to show up. Sure enough she showed up with a Kendama. She wasn't all that good at it, so I showed her how to use some basic spells. I put my arms around her and helped her from behind. She was so happy when she casted fireball that she turned around and hugged me. I asked her if I could sit next to her at lunch tomorrow and she agreed. I headed back to my dorm room and thought about it all night. (I know it's weird for a high schooler to have a dorm room, but I had no where else to stay.)
The next day I sat next to Alice at lunch and she introduced me to her friends. They all seemed to be fine with me, much to my delight. She asked me to meet her out back at the end of school again. When I got there she was there already but she didn't have a Kendama. Suddenly she walked right up to me and kissed me.
"Genis… I love you," she whispered into my ear. I was in heaven. The next day I was walking with her to school.
"Hey, Genis, how about we skip school?" I thought she was joking at first, but she was dead serious.
"But we could get in trouble!"
"What's the matter… are you scared?"
"Well…" I thought about it for a second. I thought of what I would be throwing away by saying no. But then I realized that there were plenty of other girls out there and it wasn't worth it to throw away my perfect record for some girl. "No"
"Fine then, we're through!" she yelled and ran off. I just smiled and went to class.
My next girlfriend was around a year later. Her name was Beth Richels. At first I didn't like her. She was cute, a bit short, but she would follow me around wherever I went. I talked to her sometimes, but I usually ignored her. She just wouldn't leave me alone! She really liked me and was always asking me to go out with her but I always refused. Finally I agreed and I realized we had a lot in common. We dated for almost a year, until 2 months ago when she moved away.
Now I've got no one. Oh well. There are plenty of fish in the see and I've got plenty of hooks.
