Funny how the best night of your life can quickly become the worst as Elliot soon comes to relise.
A/N this is my first ever fanfic guys so be nice and rate and review!!
I stood in awe as the last few notes vibrated through my body "Thank you New York, so long and goodnight!!!" and with that I watched as my saviours waved and smiled one last time before walking off stage.
The neon lights burned my eyes and I gave one last glance back at the stage until the crowd finally caught me and carried me towards the exit. Out in the open I managed to maintain control or my feet again and spotting Mom I half ran half tripped over to her before enveloping her into a huge hug "Thank you, thank you sooooo much!!" I virtually squealed into her ear.
"That's okay, dear, I'm just glad to see you smiling again," she chuckled "Now if you don't mind I have a hyper, sweaty teenager hanging from my neck!" We both laughed at this and I let go. We waited and watched as the crowed slowly dwindled down to a few people waiting for taxi's or friends to come and pick them up. "Come on then you must be hungry. Lets go to the diner. My treat?" I couldn't help but smile at her, after all that we had been through and she hadn't changed a bit "Okay then but hang on I wanna get cleaned up a bit first" I told her
"I'll be at the lights!!!"
Looking at myself in the mirror of the bathrooms I couldn't help but wince a bit at my reflection. The heavy black eyeliner that I had drawn on had smudged at the edges and my side fringe was slightly damp with sweat. Carefully I used some warm water to take away the smudges and after running my fingers through my hair it didn't look to bad. As I made my way out of the arena I looked for Mom finding her at the lights as they changed colour. Suddenly it was as if everything was in slow motion Mom stepped out onto the road and turned to me waving while at the same time a car rounds the corner at full speed. She stops waving and turns, I ran towards her but not fast enough, the car slams into her sending her body flying in the air like a rag doll before landing broken and lifeless at the side of the road. While the car speeds on out of sight.
I couldn't breath my lungs had stopped working and I virtually sprinted over to her, falling into a sobbing heap next to her body."MOM, MOM ARE YOU ALL RIGHT! MOMMY!!!" it had been a while since I had ever called Mom Mommy. Slowly, painfully she lifted up her right hand and touched my cheek,
"It's okay..... Elliot, its my time to... go now. I know you'll be fine....without me..." a small smile lingered on her lips as her hand dropped and she stared blankly into open space.
"NOOOO" I cried, a small gathering of people had crowded around us now but I barely payed any attention.
"What's going on here? Oh my God!" I could here voices
"Someone call 911!" came another voice they sounded vagely (sp?) familiar but I was to wrapped up in my own grief to notice.
"Okay everyone, shows over. Give the girl some space." Okay that was wierd that voice was starting to sound very familiar like from a dream or a dream of a dream. "Ssshh it's gonna be okay" a felt warm strong arms wrap around me and I sobbed into my rescuers chest my tears soaking through his t-shirt. The sound of sirens alerted me to the presence of police officers and paramedics. A police officer walked over to us and began to talk to my rescuer about things that I couldn't comprehend at the moment. Carefully he peeled me away from him so that I saw his face for the first time and I couldn't quite beleive what I saw. Gerard Way. He was my rescuer. Tears still flowed down my cheeks but i was silent staring into his eyes that seemed so sad at that moment in time. "Okay, this is gonna seem kinda strange but the police have just informed me tht you have no legal guardian is that right?" I nodded dumbly "Well would it be okay if you stayed with us for tonight until they can find you some place to stay?" Oh. My. God. Even in my greif striken state I still relised the significance of what he just said. I was gonna stay with them tonight. In any other circumstaces I would have been leaping up and down shreiking with joy but right now I just nodded in astonishment."Okay come on them we'll go see the other guys.". All of the band was slightly subdued when I met them but all where fine with the idea of me staying with them. In the end it took an hour for Gerard to sort out all of the paperwork by which time I was exsausted (sp?) and had eventually fallen asleep on Bobs shoulder. I was still devistated by my Mothers death but right now I knew that I had a little hope and five guys who cared about me.
