Megamind 2: The Tighten's Return
Chapter 1: Destined for Greatness
Life's been treating me well since the day I turned good. I got the respect I was longing for for years, I have many adoring fans, and I've got the woman of my dreams. But each time I look out at the crowd of millions cheering my name every Megamind Day, I can't help but think something's missing, that I've somehow forgotten one small detail in my tremendously giant life. But so far, what has there been to forget? I'd bet there's a statue built for all of my accomplishments past my days of villainy, including that glorious day I found out I was going to be a father.
Yes, yes, I know. A father? Me? How didit even work with me being an alien and Roxanne being...well, not alien? Well the truth is...I have absolutely no idea. But when I come home every evening from a day of random heroic tasks, the very sound of their training lasers blasting dummies constructed by Minion that fills my ears every time I walk through the door of my house just fills me with a certain happiness that I can't help but feel. Followed by this sound is their excited cheers that their loving father has returned home and they form a small crowd of three at my feet, congratulating my work and claiming they've seen what I did on television and that I'm the best dad in the world and that they love me ever so much.
"And the world's greatest hero who ever lived strikes again," another lovely voice greets me at the welcome mat, sticking out over theshoutingvoices of the children with atone as sweet as honey. This particular voice also belongs to someone who loves me dearly.
"Hello, Roxanne," I returned her greeting, followed by a kiss. I scoop up little Rosie in my arms, the one female among her two siblings, and the youngest as well. She is also diverse by owning mostly Roxanne's features. In fact, their only difference between them are their eyes, for Rosie has my neon hazel ones. She snuggles up against my arm lovingly with a smile that darkens the sun, yet another maternal trait. The boys inform me of how exciting their days turned out to be. Edbedamith tells me that he and Minion went and visited the Megamind National Museum of Awesomeness(yes, for some reason, that's its real name)and got surrounded by the press. His violent gesticulations made me chuckle as his story continued. He, like little Rosie, had skin much like a human's. But his head was as giant as mine, and his knowledge, along with his outstanding vocabulary, were also a few paternal traits. He completes his story with a few twirls and exaggerated descriptions of how he finally had to ward them off with an electric shock gun he created himself, then scurried off to retrieve the artifact to present to me.
Megamind Jr., the second oldest and the only one that looks exactly like me when I was a child, tells me howhis mother and he built all sorts of different objects once Roxanne returned home from work made out of litter they eliminated from the streets of Metrocity, such as a self scuplture out of welded together soda cylinders. Both of their stories fascinated Roxanne and I to the point where we both joined in laughter. That was about the time when Edbedamith returned with a small, black object no larger than a television remote. Looking down at this object, which I figured was this electric shock gun he'd mentioned before, I saw a small opening at the top of it, which was where the blast probably came out of(I was afraid to find out). I was so proud of him for this, even though this was what hedid on a daily basis. Creating weapons, that is. From time to time, I even use them.
"And what did you do today, Rosie?" I asked, smiling down at the child in my arms. Well, to be exact, she's seven and her brothers are both fourteen. Little Rozie's smile sunk slowly and she looked up at him with artificial sadness.
"I didn't do anything but wait for you to come home, daddy," she pouted. Roxanne smiled and rolled her eyes, crossing her arms and laughing at how fake her frown was. But it wa adorable even still.
"Don't lie to your father, Rose. She went with the boys to the museum," she corrected her exaggeration. I gave them both a warm smile and held Rose out in front of my face at arm's length.
"You had me going there for a minute, you little trickster!" I said, pulling her close again and kissing her on the forehead. "Has Uncle Minion been teaching you how to lie?" She giggled and shook her head in that special way a child her age could make anything she does look adorable. I then placed her on her feet next to her older siblings and knelt down on one knee to face them.
