Chapter 1: Bye-Bye Glinda
"So…where are you going again?" asked Fiyero rather disappointed, that he'd be spending his birthday weekend alone, without his popular girlfriend. Glinda glared in his direction.
"I told you a billion times, you never listen to me!"
"Well, I'm sorry…I can't exactly follow what you say 24/7, when you are talking 24/7!" bellowed Fiyero, Glinda furrowed her brow and placed both her hands on her perfect hips. Fiyero sighed, "Look, I'm sorry, I must have just forgot…but I would like to know."
Glinda couldn't help but smile, knowing that she had once again won that little predicament.
"I'm visiting some of my Gilikinese relatives, I'll be back Monday night"
Fiyero sighed and began to move towards Glinda, he wrapped his arms around her waist and went in for a kiss.
"Fiyero! Save it for the wedding night!" Said Glinda whilst pushing Fiyero away.
"Right I forgot…no kissing, no touching below the neck and absolutely no sex…got it" Fiyero expressed rather sarcastically. Glinda smiled and turned her back to him and started to pack her things, Fiyero watched helplessly as his square girlfriend was getting ready to leave him. Glinda hummed as she packed up five suitcases of her favorite outfits, all color coordinated.
"Bye, sweetie, and Happy birthday" Glinda waved from her chariot, Fiyero just waved, he was still bitter from their little episode in her room.
"Bye Elphie!" Glinda waved franticly in Elphaba's direction. Elphaba did a half smile and awkwardly waved good-bye. Both Fiyero and Elphie stood there waving to the enchanting Glinda as she descended down the street into the distance. Elphaba and Fiyero turned to leave at the same time, and did a head on collision, knocking Elphaba to the ground. Her face went beat red, and she started cursing under her breath, Fiyero extended his hand, but Elphie refused him.
"No Thank-you, I can very well handle getting up myself, I'm not a small minded Munchkin." She said flustered.
"Woah, sorry Miss. Elphaba, I didn't mean to embarrass you, I do know for a fact, that you are able to get up on your own, I guess Chivalry is dying, isn't it?" he said with an idiotic smirk on his perfect and honest face. Elphaba scowled and began to leave, still cursing under her breath.
"Wait! Elphie...please!" she stopped and turned around. "Why don't you let me talk to you?"
"What?" she answered confused.
"I mean what do you have against me? I mean I just got here not more than a month ago, I've only really talked to you once, and I was sure I didn't leave that much of a horrible impression of myself. I mean maybe I'm wrong but I don't even think you have a viable excuse to hate me." Elphaba went to open her mouth to respond, but Fiyero cut her off. "So Miss Elphie, what is it about me that you despise so much that you can't even look me in the eye, if it's really bad, than I'll leave you alone forever, but if it's nothing, then it will take a lot more to get rid of me."
"Why are you so determined to get me to like you? I'm nothing…you already have half the school in love with you, why do you need me to like you and talk to you." She explained.
"You didn't answer my question."
"What question?" She was now more agitated than before, Fiyero was enjoying this way too much.
"Why do you hate me?" he stated bluntly.
"Because…uh…well…you're too…perfect." She smiled sarcastically and turned her back to him and started to walk away.
"Wait, what? 'I'm too perfect?' that is the worst excuse to hate someone."
"Well it's the only one I could think of…" she was now smiling in a flirtatious way, but her back was still turned.
Fiyero was laughing and he started to catch up to her. "So you don't hate me then?" Elphaba was blushing
"NO! Okay no I don't, but I can say this for sure, you're the most annoying man I've ever met, and I've met some annoying men."
"But…" he asked hopefully
Elphaba threw her head back and laughed, "There is no but!"
"There has to be a but!" he was now laughing as well.
"Okay fine! BUT although you are so bothersome and you're driving me insane, I find you somehow…charming." Fiyero was a little taken a back from her comment, but immediately regained his composure.
"Look do you want to go get something to eat, I'm starving." He said, softly and sweet, Elphaba somehow went a little weak in the knees.
"Am I even allowed to say no?" she smiled, for real this time.
"Nope! Come on, my treat for annoying you to the max"
"Well in that case…why not."
Fiyero and Elphaba turned around and started to head for town, Fiyero looked at Elphaba, and he really looked at her. Something was different about the way she looked to him. Her green skin looked especially beautiful the way it shined, in the sunlight, as the sun began to set. Her lips her full, but not too big, her eyes were crystal clear blue, the contrast of the emerald green and blue worked marvelously together. Elphaba caught him looking at her.
"What?" she said
"Nothing, you're really something." His face felt all warm as the blood rushed to his cheeks, Elphaba's did the same, his heart began to cringe, he hadn't felt this way in…well forever, it was perfect.
