Another idea provided by Karen B. Jones ;D
Roxanne knew there were plenty of other women in the city, and that she wasn't the most gorgeous looking out of all of them...and yet, she had three guys obsessing over her, two of which weren't even human. And the third was just a creep.
She used to wonder why she couldn't find a normal guy to be with, but this desire soon faded when she discovered that normal was boring. Imagining a life with a normal guy just didn't work; there wouldn't be enough excitement in her life, and she wouldn't stick around for very long.
But what did the three un-normal guys see in her? That was what she wanted to know. Did they see the same as the other did, or were they attracted to different qualities? She wanted to find out.
Roxanne decided to bring up the topic when she and Hal were setting up for an interview with Metro Man. The red head was setting up the camera while Roxanne was reading over her questions, giving them a last minute edit.
"Why do you like me?" she asked, trying not to use the 'O' word.
Hal turned to her with wide eyes.
"What makes you think that I, er, like you? I mean, like you, like you, because I like you as a friend, although if you want to be more then I wouldn't mind-"
"Hal," she cut him off. "I meant... Say you liked me, liked me. Any reason?"
"Well," Hal began, and Roxanne saw that he was pretending to think, "what guy wouldn't? You're totally awesome...and totally hot."
Roxanne resisted the urge to roll her eyes.
Later, when Metro Man arrived, the pair were sat in their chairs, allowing the final touches of make-up to be applied to their faces. When the two women left, Roxanne sent the hero a sideways glance. She'd already gotten an answer from Hal; she wondered if the super-powered alien thought any different.
He shushed her.
"Don't go saying my name around here," he informed. "That's my secret identity, remember?"
Roxanne, once again, resisted the urge to roll her eyes. Pretty much everyone knew that Metro Man was the city's tycoon, Wayne Scott. Wasn't much of a secret identity.
"Sorry," she apologized anyway. "I just wanted to ask you something; why do you like me?"
"You keep asking me out all the time," Roxanne continued. "I just wanted to know why."
He sent her a charming smile.
"Because it's custom that a hero dates a reporter," the hero replied. "And out of all of them, you're the best looking. It makes me look good, having a hottie like you at my side."
Roxanne's jaw almost dropped at the answer.
When the interview was over, Roxanne made an excuse that she wasn't feeling well, and her boss sent her home early. The reporter didn't know what to think; did guys not date girls for the right reasons anymore? Were looks only important to them? Apparently so, considering two of the three guys who obsessed over her only did because she was hot.
She figured Megamind must be the same. He was a villain, after all; she couldn't see any other reason for him to.
Speak of the Devil... The invisible car pulled up alongside the pavement, the door opened, and a hand yanked her inside. Minion sped away up the road while Megamind held her firmly.
"You're in my clutches now, Miss Ritchi," he informed her. "There's no escape."
Roxanne didn't struggle; she didn't feel up to it.
"Megamind, can we reschedule? I've been having a bad day," Roxanne tried to explain.
"Miss Ritchi, supervillains do not reskadool for their victims," Megamind said back in a cocky tone.
The reporter shoved him away, causing him to slam into the window.
"Look, I've just found out that apparently, guys aren't interested in what a girl's like on the inside or what she likes, and only care about how hot they are!" she yelled, raising her voice.
Megamind blinked in surprise.
"What makes you say that?" he asked.
"I asked Metro Man and my cameraman why they like me," she explained, finding no reason to do otherwise. "They both say it's because I'm "hot". I doubt you're not different."
"That's not why I like you."
Roxanne just stared at him.
"No," he continued, his voice becoming softer...and taking on a slightly nervous tone. "I'll admit that you are...very pretty...but I like you because you're smart. Out of all the humans in the city – in fact, out of all the humans in the world – you're the smartest of them all. You're the only one who can match my brain in wits."
Roxanne continued to stare at him; she hadn't been expecting him to say this at all...and what was more, he was being completely honest. She could see it in his eyes.
"And I like you because you're also fearless," Megamind continued further. "You're not scared of my devices of evil...or me. You don't appear to care what I look like. And...that means a lot to me."
He looked away for a moment, but when Roxanne didn't say anything, he looked back up at her to see her reaction.
She immediately leapt forwards and pressed her lips firmly on his, causing him to fall backwards onto the seat, taking her with him. At first his eyes widened...but then they slipped closed and he kissed her back.
Minion looked into the rear-view mirror...and almost crashed the car when he saw what his boss was up to.
