Now & Forever ABCs (Travis)

My God, I can’t believe I forgot Travis.  Maybe I forgot Travis started with a T?

Travis Kaleo Puanani

20 May 1995
Agnostic

Travis’ parents met when his mother was stationed in Hawaii, where Travis was born.  The family moved back to her home in Washington when she left the Air Force.  Travis is the oldest of three children.

Travis tends to have a rather pervy sense of humour, make sexual innuendo out of anything and everything he can.  He’s actually a fairly shy, sweet guy when given a chance to prove it, however.

He has been dancing very nearly as long as Lauren, though he started with ballroom and jazz rather than ballet.  He loves dancing, even if he doesn’t love the perception, especially once he discovered a passion for ballet, it leaves so many people — including members of his own family — with.  Luckily Janet and he dating has done a little to dissuade those attitudes, and no one ever made much effort to bother him; Travis has been studying Taekwondo since he was six, and recently has taken a slight interest in Krav Maga.  Soon people learnt not to bother his friends who really are gay when, in middle school, some bullies decided to try to beat on Marcus, and Travis made them back down without ever actually hitting anyone, he just managed to convince them he could single-handedly send the lot of them to the emergency room.

Travis long ago, watching his mother and father, decided one thing for certain:  he’d never have a normal day job.  He saw them going to ordinary, mundane, nine-to-five work for a paycheque.  He promised himself that, one day, he’d make a living on a stage, on a screen, or in tournaments.  He wants excitement, energy, and to do work that makes him feel like he’s accomplished something.  Failing that, he says, he’ll join the French Foreign Legion or MI:6.
