After talking to the father I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I didn't sin after all. He said that falling in love was just a way of life and shouldn't be resisted if wanted. I certainly did want the love of another person other than my mom, so in a way falling in love with Gerard isn't so bad. I left the church and instead of going to school I went home. I feel like such a rebel after all it's only one day. And I need a break from perfect attendance. Which I've had since I was in pre-kindergarten.
I was finally home after an exhausting walk. My mother wasn't home so I headed straight to bed feeling in the mood for a big nap.
I was awoken by the sound of my mothers singing. Which was way better than my stupid alarm clock. I always wondered why my mom never became a singer. I actually questioned her about it and she said that she would rather raise me in a normal household. Unlike how superstars raise their children in a messy matter.
I followed my mom's voice into the kitchen."Good morning sleeping beauty",she said to me. I loved days like this.
"Morning mom", I said to her. I looked at the table and actually felt like eating the mouth watering food she made. So I dug in. My mother looked surprised.
"Wow honey I didn't know you were so hungry today." She said with a gasp."Oh and I'm really sorry for not telling you happy birthday when I should've. I wanted to tell you yesterday even though it was too late, but you ran out on me. So to make it up to you I'm going to sing you a song. Which one do you want to hear?"
"Fuck me pumps, you know, the one from Amy Winehouse please", I recommended. I love that song. In my point of view it's about women just being brave and standing up for themselves. Then again someone might disagree, but the point is I love that song.
"Your wish is my command, pumpkin",she said and started to sing. I was so pumped by the way she sang it that I started dancing with her. We laughed and we danced and we laughed again.
It was moments like these that I was happy it was just me and her. Yup, I was happy.
"Ok sweetheart I want this to last forever I really do, but you have to go to school and I have to go to work", she said with a sad smile. So I just nodded and got ready for school.
In just 30 minutes I was showered and dressed for the day. I gave my mom a good bye kiss on the cheek and left.
A smile was still on my face while I walked. I didn't even care if everyone thought I was crazy. I was happy and they had to deal with it.
The school grounds came to view and I saw Ray leaning on a tree. I ran as soon as I saw him. I had questions and I wanted him to answer them.
"Ray", I called to him. He turned in my direction and smiled. Why is he so happy?
"Frankie...........I thought you were mad at me.", he said with relief. Why would I be mad at him? I only had questions.
"I need to ask you things about what happened in the forest", I said, "And please answer honestly. Don't give me the it-was-just-a-dream crap."
"Ok ask away", he said relaxed.
"How did you become a werewolf?"
"It's a family trait. It's been passed on for years." He said nonchalantly. Wow, ok that was easy.
"Why didn't you tell me this before?"
"Because you weren't ready and I thought you'd react all crazy and phsyco, but you took it pretty well", he said as of he were impressed by me.
"Why were you fighting with Gerard?"
"He took something from me. Something I've loved since I first laid eyes on it", he said. Not even bothering to look me in the eyes. I wonder what it was. Probably something important if he has to fight for it.
"Ok one last thing", he looked back at me, "Prove to me you're a werewolf."
"There'll be a full moon next month. I'll prove it to you then", he said. "Are you still mad at me?"
"I never was.", I smiled at him. We talked some more to catch up. Before we knew it the bell rang and we had to separate.
I went to class and sat in my seat. The rest of the class came in. Gerard wasn't here. Did he get hurt? Does he hate me for what I did? Ok, Frankie boy calm down its not like he's dead. Oh wait.......he is. Dammit Frank stop being so ditzy.
The day went by in a breeze. Next thing I knew it was lunch already. I bought a salad and went to the playground area where tables were waiting for me to sit in. I sat and watched the birds peck on the grass. I kept picking at my salad feeling like the birds I was watching. I put the salad aside and put my head down. A little nap wouldn't hurt.
I picked up my head in an instant. And found myself running to where the sound had emitted. It came from an alley close to the school. I peeked in to see what was going on. It was one of the cheerleaders with a face that said this-feels-so-good. I wondered why then it came to me. She was having sex. In an alley. GROSS!!!! Get a room you hormonal teenagers. I was about to walk away when I saw who the guys face was. GERARD?!? How dare he? I felt tears well up in my eyes. That lying little cheat had such a nerve. I ran all the way home tears spilling out of my eyes. I crashed onto bed and exploded with sobs of heartbreak. They never subsided until my eyes got heavier. And before in knew it I was asleep.
I woke up. My eyes were crusty and my pillow was wet from the salty water that left my eyes. I looked at my clock. 6:00pm. It's almost time for my date. I got up from the bed and went to take a shower. I got out 15 minutes later and went to my room to figure out what I would wear. I decided to go with skinny jeans, a black dress shirt and some vans. I dried up, dressed up and didn't even bother to put on some eyeliner. Instead I combed my hair neatly. I came downstairs and told my mom I'd be out on a date. She screamed in excitement and asked me who it was. That's when the truth had to come out.
"Mom i need to tell you something.", i said nervously.
"What is it, honey", she asked.
"I'm gay", I said. My braced myself for what would come next.
"Oh honey I knew that since you were born", she said. Well that was easy. "Now tell me who's your date? Is it one of those jocks who are secretly gay? Or is it the bisexual bad boy?" Before I could respond a car beeped and I knew it was Gerard so I said good bye to my mother and left the house.
Gerard was wearing a formal suit with a red tie. He opened the car door for me and I slid in.
"You look beautiful this evening.",he complemented me. I didn't say anything. I just nodded.
"Are you giving me the silent treatment?" He asked.
"Yes, but apparently that cheerleader you were having sex with didn't", I said to him. You go Frankie. Stand up for yourself.
"Excuse me?", he asked.
"You heard what I said Way."
"Frank, I think you got the wrong idea-"
"No you have the wrong idea for thinking that I was stupid enough to believe that you liked me. So you know what I don't even want to go on this date anymore. Just leave me on the sidewalk.", I said dangerously calm to him. He didn't say anything else and just parked the car.
"Have a good night you cheap player", i said once I got out of the car.
I walked home after that. When I arrived I flat out broke down. My mother asked me what happened, but I just ran to my room ignoring her.
I locked my door, got my piano and started to sing.
I sense there's something in the wind
That feels like tragedy's at hand
And though I'd like to stand by him
Can't shake this feeling that I have
The worst is just around the bend
And does he notice my feelings for him?
And will he see how much he means to me?
I think it's not to be
What will become of my dear friend?
Where will his actions lead us then?
Although I'd like to join the crowd
In their enthusiastic cloud
Try as I may, it doesn't last
And will we ever end up together?
And will we ever end up together?
no, I think not, it's never to become
For I am not the one
Once I finished singing my mind was calm. So I went sleep hoping not to dream of him.
That was chapter six and I will update tomorrow so don't you worry my children. Oh and this song is from the nightmare before Christmas, but it's in the Amy lee version so hear that one. BYE BYE
