Always Like This
Minion raised his robotic hand and caressed the back of Megamind’s head, wanting to do his best to soothe his Sir’s broken heart. He hates that his Sir is crying and this is all he can do.
"What do you mean Sir?" Minion asked with a frown. The fish is doing his best to soothe his Sir but he’s suddenly terrified that he’s not doing a good enough job.
[The headrubs are definitely comforting, and it does help him relax some. He lays against Minion’s suit with his full weight now, feeling safe. He swallows and rubs a hand over his eyes, doing his best to rein his feelings in.] …I… I let him go. I agreed. I told him this was okay. I agreed… that this was for the best. [He shakes his head, resting his forehead against the glass again afterward.] …But I need him to come back. I can’t take this…! I can’t…
The fishes heart breaks to hear his charge talk like that. “Oh Sir,” Minion said soothingly, still rubbing Megamind’s head and back. “That isn’t true. You didn’t let him go…..” But even as he says the words, he’s not sure if they are true. The intricacies of human mating rituals and their complicated bonds have always escaped him.
[He doesn’t respond to that, fully aware that Minion’s idea of relationships is far different from his own, and that his romantic situation with the other alien is a bit strange to really attempt to explain. But Minion is his oldest and closest friend, and he should know what’s wrong.]
[Megamind hugs the suit, fingers gripping both cold metal and soft fur as he tries to choose his words in a way that would be clearer to understand for the fish, but fails, sighing with defeat as he mumbles into the fur.] …I want to destroy something. I just… I need a distraction. Something. [He pauses.] Maybe a drive. Somewhere.
Minion might not understand mammalian relationships, but he knows how terrible it is to be abandoned. It had been him and Sir for so long but it was nice to add Mykaal-Sir to their little home. He gives Megamind a tight squeeze. He doesn’t need to understand the details. What he does understand is that Megamind is upset and it’s his job as a good minionfish to fix it.
"A distraction, yes!" Minion agrees. "We could drive out to Radon Canyon and test the new Destructo Ray? Or take the Mega Sub for a deep dive in the lake? Or we could just fire up the old Equestriantor!" He looks at his boss with enthusiasm. If Megamind wants distraction and destruction than Minion wants to ensure that is exactly what he gets.
