Middle school.. those two words are enough to strike memories of fear and embarrassment within those who even dare to think of them. Usually, as with most aspects of life, the worse memories overpower the better. It’s a lot easier to think about the shit you regret in middle school, like dying your hair a crazy color, obsessing over some dumb band with terrible music, and the like.
But..for me, my younger years weren’t like that. They shaped me into the person I am now.
I was always that shy kid in the back of the class, sitting there anxiously fidgeting, hoping and praying that the teacher doesn’t call on me.
I had a handful of friends, since I’m not quick to trust others (oh, but that’s a WHOLE other story). Most people tried to manipulate me; they figured they could all take advantage of the timid kid.
One of the “popular” kids decided it would be fun to drag me to music club after school. I still remember his silver-tongued speech to me: “Hey, Taka. I’m in a band.. but our singer left. We need one now. Care to try out the position?” It was such a fucking riot to them to even imagine the kid who barely says two words throughout the school day belting out song lyrics.
Before I could even protest, I was in the band room of our school.
Long story short, I proved them all wrong. Turns out a had a hidden talent, a knack for the whole singing thing. They were shocked.
And that was what kickstarted my confidence.
From about age 14 or 15 on, I was a completely different person. I got a new haircut, and changed my whole wardrobe. I’d started performing with the few friends that stuck with me from middle school, and gained some fame throughout the community, blah blah.
The first big gig that I received came when I was about 18, and drew out a crowd about five times larger than I’d expected. I guess girls (and even some guys) found me attractive at that point, and were begging to come backstage after all performances.
I shrugged it off at that point, thinking that puberty possibly finally did what it was supposed to do. But I guess I realized I really had a knack for picking up chicks after taking home more women than I’d like to admit.
You know what I mean.. the rocker-fucking-800-chicks cliché.
Call me a player, but I really just couldn’t help myself. It came so naturally, almost like a second nature. Seduction was the easiest thing for me since music, and the best thing since sliced bread.
Seduction can be pretty much defined as a way of getting what you want. Although, you don’t always want to give the other person what they want..
Sometimes, just a taste is enough, and they’re completely under your control, bending at your will.
