I am now heartbroken….. T.T

So finally the truth is out. Yes, Saturnine Owens is a girl. Being someone who’s actually met her in real life, I second the bewilderment of DS for her to take on such an aggressive persona online.

Let me tell you about the events of that day… when I first met this beauty. It was for ACGC 2008, some generic local anime/games event, and I extended an invitation to Saturnine, which she accepted as she was also going out on the same day. I relished the chance to finally meet this charismatic person for the first time, coming to the meeting place at the local Borders, with a lot to talk about on my mind.

Just like DS, I was expecting to meet with a guy… so I was surprised when one of the cute girls that I noticed instantly upon entering the store suddenly walked up to me, causing me to feel nervous a bit. “Hi there, are you Kurogane?”, she said. In a daze, I managed to mumble something resembling “yeah”, and she proceeded to introduce herself as Saturnine Owen. My mind blanked out for a few minutes as I tried to process the incongruence of the fact.

When I came about, she was lightly shaking my arms, asking me if I’m alright… “Man… everytime I show myself to someone, they always do that.”, she added. “Of course… you’re… you’re… so beautiful….”, I wanted to blurt out loud, but instead I kept my calm and mumbled another “Yeah”. I felt really pathetic at that point. Such a beauty in front of me, and I’ve only managed to say out two words.

Anyways, we proceeded to look for a book, about story writing and structures, and I realized that all the tl;dr posts that she made are truly from her own knowledge. She confided to me that she was planning to be a screenwriter some day, as she loved to write. I listened intently to her, all the while fixated at her beauty, her gracefulness and generally enjoying being in the company of such a beauty. I noticed many a spiteful glances directed to me, although she didn’t seem to notice or, if she did, mind.

Moving out of Borders, any thoughts of heading for the event I had planned to go with him her, evaporated in to thin air, and instead I suggested that we head for a nearby cafe to sit down and maybe eat some lunch (it was around 1pm at that time). As we both walked in, I could see nearly half the cafe’s male customers turning their heads… some very visibly to their girlfriends, earning them a quick pinch or under-the-table leg jab. I chose a rather secluded corner of the cafe to sit down, not wanting to attract more attention.

Sitting down at the cafe… I ordered food, although what exactly I ordered and ate, until this day, I still cannot remember. Breaking the ice by talking about true tears (as I just watched 12 a few hours before heading out), we started to talking about various things, wandering through many topics. I shall not bother with the details, and besides I would love to keep some things between us ^^.

Without noticing, nearly 2 hours passed and Saturnine decided to take off early, as she had a promise to keep. I enquired further, believing that I’ve earned her trust enough, but she just blushed slighly and answered, “Hi~mi~tsu~”. I guess now I know who she made the promise to. I nearly fainted at that point, but I kept my composure, and we both headed to the counter to pay. I tried to pay for the both of us (I must note that I actually only had 50 ringgit at that point, and the total came up to 45 ringgit, pretty much leaving me penniless), but she insisted on splitting the bill, as she didn’t want to owe me anything. I felt a bit disappointed (but relieved at the same time). Till this day, I wonder if she noticed that I was actually forcing myself to pay for it. Sigh… male pride :(.

Parting with a “Ja, mata ne!” and a sweet smile on her face… I managed to wave goodbye, and left for the event, suddenly remembering about it, but feeling empty and yet satisfied at the same time. Sigh… another bittersweet memory to include in my days of youth. It’s just too bad DS already took her, but I will always keep this feeling in my heart.

P.S. Luckily, I did bring a camera along for the event, so I managed to take a picture of Saturnine herself. Enjoy her glorious beauty :)).

    I am the bane of my joke.
    Male is my body, and manly is my face.
    Apparently created over a thousand traps.
    Unaware of skirts.
    Nor aware of dresses.
    Gave the finger to everyone who trappified me.
    Waiting for one’s vindication.
    I flipped off everyone. This was the only way.
    My whole life was, “Unlimited Finger Works.”

    I knew this felt like that scene taken straight out from the Matrix, good thing I was already reading tons of Fools reports on Danny Choo’s blog before coming here, so I was immune.

    Neo :Who are you?

    Trinity : My name is Trinity.

    Neo : Trinity…_The_ Trinity? The one the cracked the IRS d-base?

    Trinity : That was a long time ago.

    Neo : Jesus!

    Trinity : What?

    Neo : I just thought, um…you were a guy.

    Trinity : Most guys do.

    That joke is easily 10 years older than the Matrix movie. Then again, what part of the Matrix isn’t a rip-off?

    Despite being unfamiliar with “Cruel Angel Theses” I still found this incredibly interesting.
    …..and profoundly funny to imagine.

    “My mind blanked out for a few minutes as I tried to process the incongruence of the fact.”
    This is where I started to laugh hard.
