Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue (chapter 8)
T for language, rating increase in later chapters
Roxanne desperately needs a date to her step-sister’s wedding. Since her fake boyfriend has decided to ditch her, she ends up seeking Megamind’s help.
The free book table doesn’t hold any more books from the series Megamind likes so much, but he does find her a different romance book that he says is good, too. He looks a little wary, still, as he hands it to her, but when she smiles and thanks him, his lips curve up in answer, his eyes lighting up.
The flight back to her apartment is a special kind of torture for Roxanne. She’s pressed so close to Megamind, her arms around him, her legs on either side of his hips, and the darkness, the sound of the engines, the way that they’re the only ones in the sky—it all feels incredibly intimate in a way that sets Roxanne’s heart to racing, makes her stomach flutter and swoop.
(she is so very aware of all the places that their bodies are touching and half of her mind is filled with mental screaming and the other half is frantically wishing that the flight never ends)
