Ray's Fro. Nuff said!
"I'm sorry who?" Gerard asked with a confused face
"Hozzie Barenham, we take every class together, and we're partners for that history assignment." She said shyly while rubbing her face with the sleeve of her over sized hoodie,which by the way looker really warm.
I saw Gerard's face change in acknowledgement, yet he still looked uncomfortable around her presence.
"Oh, yeah,yeah,yeah, Hozzie Bear right? That's what that Penina calls you!" Gerard said while smiling.
"Yeah, so, I'm sorry to just barge in here while your with your friends but I tried calling you so we could work but you wouldn't pick up ."
"Oh, yeah, sorry, we've been busy, This is Melisa, she's living with me and Mikey."
"Oh, hello, nice to meet you."
"Well I better get going, see you later Gerard, nice meeting you Melisa"
And just like that, she left. What an interesting character.
"Gerard, what will Jennifer say?"
"Ahh, Mikey, not again, I don't know what Jen's gonna say, I haven't told her yet!"
"Gee, you know she's not going to stay subtle forever right? She's bound to make a move sometime, and when she does I'll be there, laughing." Mikey said while chuckling.
"um, Who's Jennifer?" I finally had the guts to ask.
I was never shy. I never had any problems with communication, but I guess you just get used to not talking for a while when you live on the streets. When someone talks to you, you tend to not notice.
"My girlfriend" said Gerard
Well, there go the hopes of the homeless girl getting the got, lifesaving older brother. I knew this was to good to be true. I just hope she treats him nice.
"Oh, I didn't know you had a girlfriend."
"There's a lot of things you don't know about us." Mikey spoke up
"Yeah, you need to meet our friends, we're in a band. They're really nice."
"Oh, what's the band called?"
"Raygun Jones" Gerard said proudly.
A/N: For any of you who don't know, Raygun Jones was the name of the band Gee and Mikey had when they were younger, I decided since the guys are still in school, it should be like that. Later on in the story My Chemical Romance will be born. Just in case, the guys look like they did in the black parade era, except for Gee, he looks like the revenge era, when he got sober.
"Will I get to meet your girlfriend?"
"Yes. Maybe we can do something today and you could meet the whole gang."
We finished our coffee and the guys called their friends and decided to tell them to drop by the Way's house.
An hour later I was upstairs helping Elena clean her room when I heard the doorbell.
"Mel, they're here."
I rushed down the stairs anxious to meet them. I'm not gonna lie, I was very nervous.
"Mel this is Frank and his girlfriend Penina, Ray and his girlfriend Raven, Bob and his sister Koddi, Mikey's gf Anna, Sara, Megan, Mazy and last but not least my girlfriend Jennifer."
Wow, this was a lot to take in.
Ray looked pretty cool and his Fro is majestic.
Frank was a small ball of energy with hypnotic eyes.
Bob blond hair, amazing blue eyes and an awesome piercing.
Overall, they all looked friendly and I was looking forward to being part of the group.
"Hi, I'm Melisa, it's very nice to meet all of you, I'm pretty sure Gerard explained how we met."
'Yes, I think it's amazing what they did, taking you in, I'm so sorry you had to go through all that." Jennifer was the first to talk.
Great, she's not a bitch.
We spent the rest of the day talking and getting to know each other better.
Things seem to be looking up.
