Well, I had just moved up here from my old school about two years ago and I started going to the local school here. I first saw Synthetik from behind, actually, and the first things I noticed about him was his Tripp pants and the Pentacle tattoo on the back of his neck.
As a Wiccan who had just emerged from her own personal broom closet (I was not allowed to practice my religion at the last place I lived) I got excited. "Holy crap! Another Pagan/Wiccan!". I wanted to go talk to him, but I was shy and didn't know if he'd be nice, so I didn't.
A week or so later, we had a Homecoming Pep rally and before we went to it, they herded all us Seniors into the Auditorium because they wanted to talk to us about something and wanted us to take a big group picture. I had "wounded zebra syndrome", meaning that I pretty much found a friend I knew and stuck with them. It was a little hyper guy who was nicknamed "Satan" for some unknown reason, lol. But anyway, when we went into the auditorium, no one was in there except Synthetik, who was sitting down already.
"Satan" introduced us (gosh that sounds so weird, lmao) and we talked a little. When we had to get up on stage to take that picture, Synthetik started rolling himself up in the curtains and just being funny, and got reprimanded by a teacher, lol. That's when I noticed that he was the same person with the Pentacle tattoo. I asked him about it and told him that I was newly out of the broom closet about my faith.
The pep rally was boring, except for him of course, he asked me if I was going to the Football game after school, and after thinking about it (I don't really like football, though I tolerate it for Marching Band, lol) I decided to go, and found him. We talked about all kinds of stuff, and I got into how, at the time, I had a boyfriend from back where I was living, but he hadn't talked to me at all in two weeks, he'd read my emails but never reply. And how I had been seriously debating on breaking it off (I believe that a relationship is not over unless at least one person says outright it is. In most cases, anyway). He told me that I should and that I didn't deserve to be treated like that. I then asked if he had anyone in his life and, unfortunately, he did. I didn't know why at the time, but when I saw him kiss his then-girlfriend, it kind of made me hurt a little. But, I'm the type that I don't chase after taken men, so I tried to keep him out of my mind.
Well, a bit later, I find a comment on one of my Myspace pictures from Synthetik and it said "Theres so much I could put here, But alas I must hold my tongue". I figured that was either really good, or really bad, so I sent him an email asking what he meant by that. To which, he wrote, "Lol in case you cant tell I am attracted to you. But we are both taken." So he and I got on the IM and started talking about it.
One thing I did ask him though, just so that you all don't question my character, lol, I did ask him not to leave his girlfriend for me. I didn't want to be known as "That girl" who wrecks relationships and all, if they broke up due to "natural causes" then that'd be one thing, but I didn't want to be the cause of it. He assured me that he had been contemplating breaking it off with her for a while, so I was relieved, lol. I, of course, ended my relationship with the previous guy, and thus we were both open to be together. (Lol, I remember I was so scared to hold his hand while going down the hallways, because at my old school you couldn't even hold hands or anything, you'd get in trouble).
For a bit, though, I was worried that I'd scare him away, so after alot of prodding from him to get me to let him in on what I thought would scare him off, I told him that I was a submissive and into BDSM. Lucky for me, that didn't make him run in terror, he actually thought it was awesome and was actually into it as well
So it all worked out.
He and I will be together for two years coming up on November 14
Sorry for it being so long, lol. Hope you all enjoyed story time, lol
