But not by a great length but its long enough i think.
Lunch couldn't have arrived fast enough. I was starving. I hadn't eaten since early this morning.
"Hungry?" Ray asked
"Huh?" I said
"Your stomach is growling" Ray said packing his stuff up.
"I'll eat you in a minute if you don't hurry up Toro" I said making sure my serious tone was well used.
"Alright, i swear your so much like Frank when it comes to food" Ray said
"No if i was Frank Iero i would be jumping on your back and forcing you out of the science room" I said pointing my finger to the door and fixing my glasses.
"Fair enough" Ray said beginning to walk towards the door with me following behind. We then reached the cafeteria and there was no sign of Bria anywhere.
"Oh my" Ray facepalmed
"What?" I asked
"Look" He pointed over to our table.
"Oh my" Amy, Rosie and Hannah. The biggest bitches you could find in the whole of New Jersey. Literally. One time Amy actually used to be one of us. SHOCKINGLY. But then she changed and her and Frank broke up. Yeah Frank dated her. We still don't know the reason why. Obviously it pains him seeing one of his ex girlfriends being a total chav milly slut whore girly girl, prep what ever.
"She's so different!" Ray said.
"Remember her and Bria used to be like really close too?" I said
"I know" Ray said taking out his sandwhich. I opened my bag and lifted out my ham and cheese roll.
"Minnie mouse or Daisy duck?" I asked. Rachel was so dead on. Me and her really understood eachother and was forming a really good friendship. I have spent since english class getting to knwo her.
"Daisy duck" She said
"Why?" I asked
"Minnie mouse is too mainstream" She smiled
"Really" I laughed
"Yeah, i mean Minnie gets all the attention and you occassionally get your Daisy duck threw in there" She had a good point
"Fair enough" I smiled
"What do you prefer?" She asked me
"Pluto the dog" I laughed even more.
"He is just epic" Rachel smiled.
"Now come on, i want you to meet some of my other friends" I said linking my arm with hers as we made our way to the cafeteria. I opened the door and walked over to where i could see Ray's poofy afro. I looked over at our table curious as to why they were not sitting at the usual table. Thats why Amy had taken over. I walked over to Ray and Mikey.
"Hey guys" I smiled. Rachel walked close behind.
"Hey Bria" Ray smiled.
"I want you to meet my friend Rachel, she's from Miami" I smiled.
"Hi!" Ray said. Rachel waved. Mikey was still as a rock and Rachel was obviously trying to avoid contact with him.
"Rachel" Mikey said blankly.
"Hey Mikey" She said awkwardly.
"Long time" He said
"Very" She said sitting down beside Ray.
"You guys know eachother?" I asked shocked.
"... Sort of" Rahcel said.
"You went off" Mieky muttered.
"I WONDER THE FUCK WHY?" Rahcel outburst causing me and Ray to jump in our seat. Tears were forming in her eyes.
"Dont get upset" Mikey muttered.
"Noone even fucking noticed, if i did or not anyway" Rachel interrupted.
"...." Came from me and Ray.
"He changed" Mikey muttered keeping his head low.
"BECAUSE OF ME, I THOUGHT IT WOULD MAKE THINGS SLIGHTLY BETTER BUT WHAT HAPPENS? HE FULLY IGNORES US! DONT SAY HE DIDNT HE DID, BERT WAS HIS BEST FRIEND THEN HE JUST INTIMIDATED HIM IN FRONT OF HIS SO CALLED NEW FRIENDS?" Rahcel was crying by now.
"Its okay" I pulled her into a hug. I was really confused. Who were they talking about? Who was Bert?
"Its not" She muttered.
"Its in the past" Mikey said louder.
"Haunts me" Rachel said
"Guys incase you haven't realized me adn Bria is completly lost" Ray said
"Sorry" Rachel sat up.
"What happened isn't important" I said
"If you knew the story of what happened you would understand better" Rachel chocked rubbing her eyes trying to calm herself.
"Maybe" I said handing her a tissue
"Thankyou Bria" She rubbed her eyes.
"Now lets talk about something else" Ray said
"I think you guys have the right to know" Mikey said
"No. These are my friends and they are Gerard's friends" Mikey said. Gerard must clearly be part of this equation.
"Why don't you stay in my house on Friday night then you can tell me the story" I suggested
"I would like that Bria" Rachel gave a small smile.
"Great" I said
"Im surprised you never told them" Rachel said to Mikey
"I wanted to let it go" Mikey said fixing his glasses again.
"You should have told them what he was capable of" Rachel said
"What?" Ray said
"You dont know what Gerard is capable of" Rachel repeated herself.
"What do you mean by that?" I asked
"Lets just say he backstabbed me, Mikey and our friend Bert. Because me thinking it would be a little better if he wasn't too self conscious or shy. Nope got the complete opposite" Rachel summarized.
"Gerard was self conscious?" Ray asked
"Still is" Mikey said
"Ha!" Rachel said
"He really is" Mikey said
"I'll believe that when is ee it. Speaking of Gerard where is he?" Rachel asked. To avoid any tears or anything
"He's sick" I said. Mikey and Ray looked at me. I gave them a face saying 'Its-better-to-not-tell-her. They just know me by my facial expression. They nodded
"Oh" Rachel said not noticing anything. Maybe it was better if she didn't notice anything. I want to get to know her a little bit better first
