August, aka Spider

In case you didn’t know, I’m the BMOC in Belvieu Bay. I’m the guy all the girls want…except Jasmine. A couple years ago, I asked her out then got cold feet and didn’t show. I know it was because of something stupid, but at the time it seemed important. You’d think she’d be over it by now, but she’s not. I don’t know if she’ll ever forgive me.

Now that the world’s gone crazy, I figured I’d weasel my way into her life and make up for all my failings. And no, I’m not stupid enough to tell her about the other girls. I mean, c’mon, a guy’s gotta have some fun, right? I’m a healthy twenty-year-old, not a monk. But I swear, if I ever get Jaz to go out with me I’ll ditch the other girls.

Lately, I’ve seen a blond dude hanging around her. Something about him seems off, but I can’t get close enough to find out what it is. Once I thought I saw pointed ears, but real people don’t have ears like that so it must’ve been the joint I smoked earlier. He’d better watch out, because I plan on romancing her so hard she’ll never look at him again.

Gotta go. Think I see something coming out of that crater in the street. Probably another weird chimera. If that’s the case, I can play hero and win some attention from Jaz.
