Summary: Post Ryan Ordeal. Adam broke up with Joan for the new girl named Janet. Goth Boy God comforts Joan and Joan turns kind of Goth. key word is kind of

Well, I looked at her face and then I knew she changed,
My heart turned black and then the sky turned gray!
My heart turned black and then the sky turned gray!

So I sat in my room for 27 days,
No she never called, I had something to say!
No she never called, I had something to say!

I don't know much and I don't know how...

Why would she put me through such torture,
I would have given my life for her,
She was the one that knocked me over,
Now I'm alone sitting on the corner

Chapter One

The first bell had rung at Arcadia High School, signaling that there was five minutes to get to class. Joan, Adam and a new student, named Janet walked towards the door. "Um, Jane, can I talk to you for a minute, in private?" Adam asked his girlfriend Joan. "Sure." Joan replied smiling. The couple walked over towards an oak tree, the whole time, Adam had his head down. "What's wrong?" Joan asked concerned.

Adam took her hands in his and said, "I don't know how to say this. You know how two weeks ago I broke our date because my dad needed a hand around the house? Well I lied; I was really cheating on you with Janet." Joan stood there trying to comprehend what Adam was saying to her. 'My boyfriend is breaking up with me because of Janet.' She thought. Joan ripped her hands out Adam's and tried to hold back the tears that where going to fall. 'I wouldn't cry in front of him.' Joan told herself over and over in her mind.

Joan just looked at Adam and whispered a short "it's over." then walked towards the park. When Joan got to the park, she ran over to one of the swings then sat down and began rocking herself back and forth. "Hello Joan, shouldn't you be in school." A familiar voice said. Joan looked up and saw Goth God. Iris' last words to her came back to her, 'He'll break your heart.' "You knew didn't you? Wait, what am I saying, of course you knew." Joan spat. "Yes, I knew, and you know that I can't tell you the future." He told her.

"But you could at least give me a hint." Joan said looking at the ground. "You always just leave me alone with an assignment and a few parting words." Joan said quietly. God walked closer to her and lifted her chin up with his finger and said, "You are never alone." God went behind Joan and started pushing her on the swing. To passing people, the sight of a gothic teen pushing a somewhat preppy teen on a swing would seem very odd. Thought for Joan, it just seemed right.

There was and awkward silence as the streets became less busy and all Joan could hear was the sound of the wind blowing in her ears and all she could feel was God's hands and her back. "Why did you have to make love so hard?" Joan asked, as a tear slide down her cheek. "I didn't really make love hard. People just think that they love every person of the opposite sex." He replied. "Well why don't you try and talk us out of it?" Joan asked. "I'm your conscience Joan, and I think you should go back to school now." God replied.

A/N Sorry this chapter is so short! The next one will be longer. And I'm a very slow updater but since summer is on the way I'll update once or twice every week or so. R&R!
