Note One: It is highly recommended you listen to this song several times through the course of reading this. It’ll set the mood.
Note Two: For perfectlyrose, who introduced me to the aforementioned song and has been awake way too long and probably needs something mindless and fluffy. This is all your fault Kelsey. Enjoy ;)
John swore it was a curse.
It started when he was fifteen and girls started noticing he was less “geeky” and more “dashingly handsome.” He woke up one morning and he was swarmed with girls, crawling all over him, practically begging to go out with him.
(Okay, maybe they didn’t beg. But every good story needs exaggeration).
That wasn’t the curse though. Oh no, John loved having the girls go after him – especially after years of only having one (very attractive) friend (who got all the attention). So yeah, John was pretty much in heaven when he realized he was finally good-looking enough for girls to notice him. It was great.
The fact that nobody wanted to stay with him, however, was pretty awful.
Within six months he went through five girlfriends. He thought maybe it was just bad luck, that it was just taking him a while to find someone to stick.
But no. He went through girls the way most people went through shirts. It got him quite the reputation, too – the problem was, he really did want a girlfriend. And the girls always seemed so attracted to him at first. He couldn’t quite figure out where he was going so horribly wrong.
It was a curse.
