Chapter 5.14

James

Damn. Not another breach in security. I was going to have Anderson’s head on a platter. Why the fuck couldn’t some asshole we’re paying way too much money ward off a few  teenagers? Was our privacy too much to ask? I couldn’t count the number of times we’d been mobbed, my clothes ripped off my body. One time, a crazy teen pulled my sunglasses, scraping my ears because she wanted to see my “gorgeous blue eyes”.

Charlie, don’t talk to them, I wanted to shout. It’d just encourage them to jump us.

Then I noticed these weren’t teens.

And one in particular caught my eye.

If every Throbber looked like that, I wouldn’t mind a few groupies hanging out.

In my bed.

But before I could gawk a little on my own, the beautiful fish swam away.

“Whoa. Who was that?” I asked. “She’s not the typical Throbber.”

“I have no idea,” Charlie answered, “but I’d love to find out.”

“Hey, boys,” her friend said, twirling her fingers. “Would you like her phone number?”

Lexie

I made Gabby promise never to ask me to go to another Heartthrob concert again. Sure I was Charlie Tsui’s number one fan, but meeting him was like standing next to a god. You don’t mind looking from afar, but being right next to him? I thought I’d get torched on the spot.

Thankfully, today I was meeting up with my best friend, Brooke Marx. We’d been friends since my junior year in college when we met at Geek Con. We both bumped into each other at a LARPing (Live Action Role Playing) booth. I was kind of interested in it, but Brooke was practically made for the game. She was now in a huge gaming league and was trying to develop her own LARPing system. Unfortunately, she hadn’t found a real job in a few years, so her rich parents were threatening that she was going to have to move back to Brideport and live with them in their huge mansion full of old relatives and goofy cousins (her words, not mine! I’ve met a few of them and I think they’re cool!)

Geeks R Us glowed like a pink beacon on the water.

Ahh…it was like my second home.

I’d been waiting on this night for two months! It was the Super Serafina cosplay contest. I’d sewed my costume, bought a pricey wig, and commissioned one of my fellow co-workers who honest to God was like a modern day blacksmith to make her daggers.

I was sure to win.

The prize was just a few signed copies of Super Serefina’s newest comic book as well as a super sized poster–not much–but this kind of thing was fun since you got to meet a bunch of other nerds who loved Serafina.

Screenshot_440

Did I say nerds? More like geek city. But who was I to judge? I was a card carrying member.

One dude dressed like Serafina’s nemesis/love interest, The Slash. He was kind of cute (even though he was a bit big to be Slash).

Screenshot_441

And then we waited around, not kidding, for an hour on the judges.

They never showed.

Screenshot_442

“So, like, is someone going to do Serafina’s Slash and Trash move?” one of the guys in the crowd asked.

“Yeah,” his friend added. “We’ve been standing here, waiting. What are you? Serafina wannabes?”

Screenshot_443

“Shut up, dork,” a girl next to me retorted. “You’re lucky you’re getting a good look at our goods. It’s not every day I stand here letting assholes like you rubberneck. Where’s the manager?”

“Now, we must be patient,” Brooke said in her always sunny voice. “The judges are just a little late.” That’s what I loved most about Brooke–no matter the situation, she found the good side in it.

Screenshot_448

“Late, my ass,” the girl next to me said. “More like they had something better to do with their lives unlike us.”

Brooke giggled. “You’re funny.”

“Yeah…the joke’s on us.”

Screenshot_449

I liked that girl’s sass. As soon as we were finished, I decided to introduce myself.

“You thinking what I’m thinking?” the dude in glasses said.

“Yeah. Totally. These girls are lame anyway.”

Screenshot_452

“Oh my God…what the hell am I doing with my life to have to be insulted by asswipes while I shiver in the air conditioning in nothing but a body glove? I knew I should have listened to my grandmother and finished my pHD.”

Screenshot_457

The jerks walked out as a woman sauntered over to us. “I’m very sorry, but we’re going to cancel the contest tonight. One of the judges has a conflict in his schedule. But here’s a couple of 10% off coupons you can use on any merchandise in our shop.”

Screenshot_455

“You see?” the girl said, waving her authentic Serafina Staff. “They just crap all over us then give us a measly ten percent coupon when I could find a better one online. This sucks balls.”

Screenshot_458

“I’ve got an idea,” Brooke said, “Let’s see if they have any freebies upstairs. They’re bound to have at least knock off comic book merch for us to scour.”

“Yeah!” said another Serafina cosplayer with the hot pink hair.

Screenshot_460

I ambled over to a gaming system and found the newest DLC to Black Scourge, my favorite MMORPG. “Ladies, do any of you like BS?”

Screenshot_461

Everyone’s eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas Day. One girl answered, “I’m a 100 Level Dark Elf who can speak the rare High Language. You?”

Without pause, I said, “I’m a Level 120 Grunt Orc who can kick anyone’s pansy ass in five seconds. Heavy armor, two handed swordskill. All around tank.”

“My girlfriend is a fairy healer.” What I guessed was her girlfriend waved at me. She even looked sort of like a fairy.

Screenshot_462

Brooke geeked out and added, “I can back you up with my bow, if you’ll allow me to join!”

The funny chick also wanted to play which left the magenta haired girl who said she had a few characters to choose from.

And just like that, we formed the Super Serafina Sisterhood Guild.

We made the clerk take our picture:

Brooke and I stood on some chairs at the top (which we photoshopped out). The sassy girl’s name was Domina Langosta. On the left was magenta hair–Kate Meadows. And the other two were girlfriends, Copper Collins and Reese Greer.

We kicked some dragon zombie ass that night. It was awesome.

  1. Ahh! Loving Lexie’s new squad!
    Can’t wait to get to know them all better, but they look like my kind of women ❤️

    And yaaaaas! Giving Lexie’s digits to boy band guys, *ebil cackle*
    SHE’LL BE SO PLEASED

    Ahh, I can’t wait to see the larping and throbbing to come 😘

    1. Yay! I was hoping you’d love them. ❤ And I predict you'll love them even more as time goes on. 😉

      Digits received. Wonder how or IF they'll use it.

      Larping and throbbing will go full tilt next chapter.

  2. Yaaaaaas! What an epic chapter! Some hunky musicians get Lexie’s number AND she makes some new friends? Hehehe (okay, I’m curious how she’ll actually feel about it when one of the guys tries contacting her. Ha!)

    Loved all the geekiness abound in this one! And seeing my Brooke! 😍 She’s lucky she has a big wealthy family willing to help her out! Hopefully all her LARPing dreams come true one day 😉 So excited to get to know the other girls better too. Something tells me there will be a very interesting dynamic between all these ladies 😉

    1. LOL! I can’t wait until Lexie meets the first one (Heartthrob–epic–yes!)

      This is true geekdom at its finest. And happy birthday! Glad you like Brooke. Her alter ego is the best, though, and their personality dichotomy is so much fun to write!! ❤ Thanks again for subbing her with all her quirks, too.

  3. So glad you love the squad. We’re going to get to know them and their quirky ways soon! (And I really don’t think they’re going to take to ANY mainstream guy…right????) 😀

  4. This was great! Of course Lexie would totally have won had the contest ensued. She was the spitting image of Serafina, boob size and all. I didn’t realize how well endowed she was until this chapter! Lol…and that’s what James was noticing too!

    I bet one of them call her, but will it be Charlie or James? Theybwill invite them all to a concert with VIP seating and real backstage passes. I can see why they would too. Not underaged teens and not super aggressive. Heck she ran.

    Love the new squad! Might not have happened if the contest had gone as planned. They all bonded over their misfortune. And the geeky guys…oh my…so typical. I went to a gaming convention with my son and yep, pretty much right on! I didn’t go inside, just watched as the came and went but still. Haha. It wasn’t cosplay though. Just a bunch of geeks getting togehter and playing a video game.

    Yes, I had to laugh about Brooke’s rich family and weird cousins… 😂

    1. Lol! Lexie inherited her mother’s breast size. She popped out like that. And yes, her “girls” got noticed by James. Maybe one will call her? We’ll see! 😛

      Funny about the video con. I take my daughter to an anime con in Dallas every summer. I’ve even cosplayed with her. So, I know these people first hand. Much of Lexie’s life is based off my geek children. ❤️❤️❤️ I have two geeks and two mainstream kids. 😉

      Rofl…Brooke’s fam sound familiar? 🤣

  5. This was yet another fun chapter!! The band gets Lexie’s number and she made some geeky friends? Epic awesomeness!

    Loving Lexie’s new squad!! I look forward to getting to know them better and seeing Lexie and the girls in action with larping and other fun geeky activities!

  6. Yaas, another awesome chapter filled with stuff I can so easily relate to.
    Happy to see James isn’t completely dead inside and the view of Lexie’s assets tickled him in the right places. God bless Lexie’s friend to be so quick and offer her number, because we need more stunned tongue-tied Lexie in our lives. 🙂
    Cheers for Super Serafina Sisterhood Guild slaying that zombie dragon! Nothing better to bond over than some epax loot!!!

    1. I’m so glad you’re relating to Lex and her friends!

      James is a complex character whom you’ll get to know soon! 😁 Glad you approve of Lex’s friend giving out her number. How else are they ever to meet up?

      The sisterhood will have lots of fun together in the future! And so true about bonding on a mission.

  7. The “in my BED” line had me giggling. Oh, James. Do I smell a love triangle involving him and Charlie? (Bring it on!!)

    This chapter was so fun–even if Lexie’s contest didn’t work out, at least she made new friends. 😉 I love that she plays MMOs too (and that the acronym is BS). I used to play so many MMOs!

    And of course I loved Domina Langosta, standing around and snarking. ❤ ❤ Hope she becomes really good friends with Lexie. Loved their costumes, by the way! A sea of pink hair and tight clothing, rofl.

    1. You could be right about a love triangle between those boys! 😏

      Yeah, who cares about a contest when you meet five new friends?

      Glad you love our snarkmaster, Domina. I adore her! ❤️

      Sea of pink hair and tight clothing. Lol! So true! It was fun dressing them!

  8. Good friends giving out Lexie’s number. She needs to get out and live a little, after all, she has a leagacy to fill. Come on girl girl get you a man, or four, or five. Have some fun, girl. Wake up and smell the coffee, time to spread your wings and fly.

  9. Dark WitcHazard: I’m loving the new squad! Also did this girl seriously just give away her friends number to strangers I mean they cute but they could be serial killers on the DL you don’t know ! If Lexie ends up in a body bag we know who to blame!

    Lover WitcHazard: Let the love triangle commence! Who’s it going to be the brooding lead who’s kinda an asshole but it’s all because of a childhood misunderstanding or a dark past that still haunts him to this day! Or the practically perfect nice guy who is totally emotionally restraining himself of the demons that lie within! Stay tuned!

    Shipper WitcHazard: Eekkgyzkykddhjsjsgskkjtaajajfaj potential ships!!!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkk!

    1. Dark:her friend thought she was doing Lexie a favor. The girl doesn’t even date. Why not a superstar? 😛

      Lover: wow! That’s kind of so true it’s scary! We’ll see!!!

      Shipper: definitely!

      Anti:SORRY!!!
