{ Yeah, I've got it, } Noah Puckerman smugly thought to himself as he drove off after dropping the new girl in school, Dawn Summers, off at her home after their first date.

{ And all those bitches want it BAD, } he reflected as he took a moment to glance at himself in the rear view mirror and nod, satisfied that he really was just as bad as hr thought he was.

Of course, it was easy to understand why Dawn's older sister and her friends had all threatened him with extreme bodily violence if he did anything that hurt her.

Dawn's older sister, Bunny, wanted him for herself, of course, just like her friend – what was her name again? Fay, maybe? – did, because he was, without any doubt, the hottest stud they'd ever seen in their lives.

EVERY older woman he'd ever met wanted him; he knew that particular fact was one of the basic laws of nature – something you didn't even think about questioning – so their reactions were completely understandable.

The fact that both Bunny and Fay had threatened to rip his balls off if he hurt Dawn's feelings or did any other shit like that – that just proved that they were both jealous that he was dating Dawn, and not them, 'cause he knew they'd both be more than glad to get some sugar from the Puckerman if they thought they had a chance.

And as far as George, the older guy who was obviously some kind of grandfather figure or something like that for Dawn, or Bunny's friend, Spock, were concerned – hell, he'd been threatened by overprotective fathers, brothers and even grandfathers plenty of times before, and he was still here, so he wasn't all that concerned about them maybe following up on the threats of pain and/or dismemberment, 'cause, shit, man! that kind of thing just wasn't cool!

The only person he was – maybe, just maybe – the slightest bit not sure about wanting to get pissed off at him was that other guy who was living with Dawn and her family – Zandro, or whatever the hell he'd said his name was.

Not 'cause of the eyepatch – even though the thing was actually kind of ultra-creepy, and made him look like he was auditioning for a part in a movie about pirates who'd slit your throat without even giving it a second thought – but mainly because of the way he'd just given him that little smile when he'd oh-so-casually told him abut what would happen if he upset Dawn in any way, whatsoever.

Zandro had just *smiled* at him – like a really creepy-ass, serial-killer Mr. Rogers or something – and then he'd very quietly said, "You do anything to hurt Dawn in any way, and I'll hunt you down wherever you try to hide, dress you up in a blonde wig and a red sequined string bikini, drop you on the lead float in the Gay Pride parade in San Francisco and make sure that every camera of every national network is focused on you for the next four hours."

Man, any sonuvabitch who was cold enough to threaten to do something like that was someone you *definitely* had to respect – and most definitely keep an eye out for!
