Marvin is the type of person who drinks milk straight from the jug.
One day, when Whizzer starte staying at Marvin’s house, he walks in on Marvin chugging milk, and he and Whizzer make direct eye contact.
Whizzer wanted nothing to do with that man ever again.
Whizzer wears contacts because he’s insAnely nearsighted. It’s a physical imperfection of his. He wakes up one morning and, for some unknown reason, can only find ONE contact. So he puts it in and tries to make it through the day.
By the time he gets to English Lit, Mendel notices he’s acting a little off, holding his book three inches from his face and squinting one eye. He asks Whizzer if he has glasses, and so Whizzer (reluctantly!) puts them on.
They are actually the ugliest things ever. Rectangular wire frames. Even Marvin (ESPECIALLY Marvin) makes fun of them, and we all know Marvin’s fashion sense. Mendel’s the only one who doesn’t bug him for it because he doesn’t want Whizzer to go blind again.
Marvin is a huge tease and will kiss and nip at Whizzer's ears and neck in the morning. He leaves hickeys along Whizzer's collarbones and then backs off. He'll trace them throughout the day as he gives Whizzer little pecks on the cheek. Whizzer's face flames up each time but he tries to act nonchalant about it. Whizzer secretly admires them when he can. That's why his shirt is always slightly open at the collar.
Yes, yes, yes, that’s completely true. He’s always covered in hickeys and isn’t afraid to show them off, and he loves when Marvin traces them. He sure acts like it’s no big deal, but it’s obvious he’s hiding that it is a big deal.
Marvin convinces Whizzer to read The Outsiders after a lot of effort. Whizzer reads the entire thing in a week. He almost breaks up with Marvin because of the ending.
Honestly, Marvin is just always trying to convince Whizzer to read, and I’d say The Outsiders would be one of the first books he actually reads, but in secret, until one day he just throws the book at Marvin and shakes his head.
