The following is an anime convention story that someone told me. The names of the cosplayers have been change to protect identities.
“I want to be your Sora. Those were the words I use to get her to kiss me. Kairi that is (My girlfriend ). I meet her at a convention in the state of Connecticut called Connecticon. It was the year 2011. A year I never forgot. It was my first convention and went dressed up as Sora (My name is Jamie). I was dressed up as Sora from Kingdom Hearts and she was dressed up as Kairi. Now that is a anime geek fantasy right there. You know how it goes. You make friends by cosplaying and doing photo shoots. You meet everyone in the group and then you meet eyes with that girl and somehow you hit it off. She was cute, her Kairi cosplay was just right. We started talking and everything went smoothly. By the third day of the convention that year we kissed, got each others number and in the real world we started dating.”
Now that is not the actual story I want to tell you today. That experience in Connecticon 2011 was the beginning. The real Story starts 2012 July again in Connecticon. The year I discovered who my real friends were.
That year I graduate high school during the month of June. I was going to cosplay as Naruto but by the time the convention came I had no money. So me and my girlfriend were planning on going again as Sora and Kairi (her real name is Jessy). So me and my other friends, Thomas, David and Kevin all went to the convention in Kingdom Hearts cosplay. The fun was about to start and me and Jessy were going to celebrate our one year anniversary. Thomas went as Riku. David (short guy) went as Donald and Kevin as Goofy. It was the Kingdom Hearts main team.
The tornado happened when Kingdom hearts meet the Teen Titans. Funny how that sounds. Two worlds about to collide. But don’t worry there was no violence, casting fire spells or Iron cyborgs on this story.
Turns out that the Teen Titan cosplayers that we meet were Jessy’s friends from high school going to the convention that year. That was the very first day. Now Jessy’s friend Chelsie who was cosplaying as Terra (of Teen Titans) kept looking at me. Every time she saw me her eyes bloomed. Damn! She was hot. A cute blonde, hourglass figure and everything. Sorry to say but she was much cutter than Jessy. However I was not going to try and pull any moves on her since I was with Jessy of course. I am a loyal person. I don’t cheat.
The very first day we did the Kingdom Hearts photo shoot and then did a KH meets Teen Titans group photos. It was a blast. Jessy’s friends were cool. Robin, Star Fire, Raven and Beast Boy.
I am going to skip to the rave party where the real fun begins. Everything else was just me going from panel to panel and meeting celebrities.
The rave party could have been a bigger blast if Jessy was with me. You know what happens at cons. You lose you friends as you are walking around from meeting people and taking pictures. Everyone was at the rave except Jessy and Thomas. DOnt forget we were also sharing a hotel room the five of us. So that night I was hanging around with the Teen Titans and dancing with Terra. Oh god she was rubbing you know what on me. I told her I was with Jessy and she apologized. “Do you know where Jessy is?” I asked Terra.
“She is with that friend of your Thomas the guy cosplaying Riku.” Terra answered (her real name is Chelsie)
“Why have they been gone for so long?” I asked again, my heart raising.
“Jessy drove Thomas to the hospital she said. Thomas’s mom got into a car crash they told me. So she hurried and drove Thomas to the hospital.” Chelsie said.
“Oh well that explains it.” I said. ” She could at least send me a text. Did you see her when she told you that?”
“No she just called me up and said Thomas had an emergency. That was before the rave started.”
“Oh okay thanks I just wanted to know because neither of them are answering.” I said while headbanging to the rave.
“Are you jealous?” Chelsie asked (Terra.)
“Why would I be? They are both friends of mine.” I answered nervously.
At 1 AM Jessy and Thomas came to the rave. They told me what had happened. Thomas was crying so I gave my bro a hug. When he hugged me I noticed blood on his middle finger. “Why is there blood on your finger?” I asked him.
“Oh I guess that was when I was rubbing my mother forehead. Blood must have smeared on my hand. The doctor said she will be ok so I am not too worry.” Thomas told me with moist eyes. So I believed him.
After that everyone went back to the rave party. The kingdom heart cosplay team (my friends) and the Teen Titan cosplay team (Jessy’s friends). Before we entered the party Raven (Teen Titan cosplayer her real name is Madeline). Raven came running to the rave. She was panting and seemed frustrated. “Hey I thought you were inside the whole time.” I told her.
“No actually I went back to the hotel room. Someone locked me out damn it.” She snarled so I left her alone. Hmmm….if she didn’t have the key to her hotel room who did. Something was going on and I didn’t know what. Did Jessy really took Thomas to the hospital. hmmm…. Nah Thomas could not be lying. There was blood on his hand.
Convention Day 2
A new day and I woke up tire. The rave was so much fucking fun I almost dehydrated. Yeah it was that fun and Terra(Chelsie) is one hell of a fun girl. Jessy started to get jealous and was telling Chelsie to piss off me. I kinda liked the fact that she was jealous. It showed that she liked me a lot. We have been dating for a year now. And celebrating our one year anniversary as nerds in love.
Me and Chelsie were hanging around by ourselves and making out in every picture that people took of us. It was just the two of us. Then all the girls wanted to their own little time. Kairi, Raven, Star Fire and Terra. So I was stuck with Donald, Goofy, Riku, Robin, Beast Boy ( I was wondering why they didn’t have cyborg in their cosplay).
Riku (Thomas) was whispering at me most of the time. “Hey bro have you noticed how Terra is in to you.”
“Yeah.” I told him. “But I don’t really care cause I am with Jessy. Do you like her?”
“Nah man I am not into her. I am kinda seeing someone right now.” He said but he never said who this “someone” was.
As all the boys hang around I was trying to call Jessy again but she never picked up her phone and at times it sounded like it had been disconnected. So what did I do after she didn’t pick up the phone. I spent the entire day searching for her. I asked Goody and Donald to help me (Funny how that sounds) but they refused and said they wanted to hang out with Riku and go to the event that was happening. So since no one wanted to join me (Sora) in my quest to find my princess, I did what most heroes did. I went to search by myself. Shit! How horrible it was. Instead of having fun I spend the entire day searching for my girlfriend who wouldn’t pick up the phone. I missed out on some important events and celebrity appearances searching for this chick.
I was so mad. So finally I gave up. I was hoping to run into her but to hell with that. When I bumped into the other girls they told me that Kairi (Jessy) was no where to be found. What the fuck! No one knows where this girl is. Then I ran into Riku again (Thomas). “Lets look for her dude. ” He encouraged. So we searched for her until we finally found her talking to some cosplayers in the third floor of the convention.
“I have to go home guys an emergency came up.” She told me. It really sucked that she had to leave. So I decided that I wasnt going to think about my girlfriend and just fucking have fun right. Then came the rave party. Me and the Teen Titans with Goofy and Donald were having a blast and meet a Naruto cosplay group….So freaking fun. However Riku decided to that he was going to watch some new anime that had only been released in Japan. He didn’t come to the rave. He was not much of a social person anyways (thus his character Riku).
That night at the rave. Something happened. I slipped on something going down the stairs. I guess someone had spilled their drink or something but I busted my ass and twisted my ankle. That shit hurt.
After that Donal and Goofy (David and Kevin) my good buddies from high school picked me up and took me to the hotel room.
When we opened the door to the hotel room there was Thomas (Riku) he had a girl in the room. “oh shit sorry dude!” I said thinking I had cocked blocked him. The girl was hiding under the covers. So Donald and Goofy took me outside as we giggled.
Then I heard a voice coming from the room. A voice so familiar in fact I had spent two days with that voice. I hopped on one leg back to the room and it was non other than my girlfriend Jessy. She was naked covered by bedsheets and Thomas with his thingy out. I jumped Thomas. I was angry even with my twisted ankle. I was so fucking angry I wanted to kill him. The funny thing was that I fought him while he was half naked(Ewww!).
Donald and Goofy pulled us away. “You bunch of fucking traitors. I cant believe I didn’t see it before.” I yelled and Jessy was putting on her clothes.
“Is this what you were doing yesterday too before the rave. I thought you went to see your mom at the hospital cuz she got into a car crash.”
“Sorry dude. It was a lie. ” Thomas answered.
“What about that blood on your fingers?” I reminded him.
“Well you see it was Jessy’s first time.” Was his answer. After that I could not hear anymore. I told them they could not spend the third night in the room. He deflowered my first girlfriend that asshole. At least I gave him a black eye. Shit I was heart broken(Thus the main character of Kingdom Hearts and his friend Riku fighting for Kairi. Talk about drama).
So yeah they didn’t stay in the hotel room that night. My parents paid for most of it so heck. I have the rights. I was really depressed though. Donald and Goofy tried to cam me down.
Convention day 3
I wanted the day to end already. I wanted to just go home. I didn’t care about what events where happening that day. There wasn’t much going on.
I just wanted to be alone. I went to the third floor of the convention to gaze out the window and get my mind off her. Then Terra (Chelsie) found me in a corner. We started talking about Jessy and what she did. She already knew. My friend Kevin had already told her.
“I just wanted to be her Sora. I thought everything was good between us. We were together for a whole year and celebrating it at the convention.” I told Chelsie(Terra).
“Wanna know why I was being all flirty with you at the rave?” She asked.
“WHy?” I said.
“Because Jessy was cheating on you for months now. We would talk on the phone and she would tell me how she was into Thomas. I felt bad and when I met you here at the convention I said screw it she is cheating on him anyways.”
“You are so cool.” I told her, voice low and looked into her eyes.
“Thanks I think you are cool too and I was hoping that I can be your Terra.” She said.
“I was thinking that maybe I can be your Sora.”
