day thirty-nine.Thursday, December 15
I actually didn't really notice Pumpkin was missing until I stepped outside for a smoke and found them sitting on the front porch, looking ahead, head tilted, like they were annoyed about something.
I sat beside them and tried to get them to talk to me again, but they wouldn't. They ignored me and continued to keep their head straight, not paying attention to anything around them.
I started to pat their back and rub their sides when I heard them start to whine softly in their throat.
Then, when the whimpering noises continued to happen, I hugged them and wouldn't let go until they acknowledged my presence.
It took them a while until they gave in.
Now, we're sitting on the couch, eating puppy chow. Boo's lying by my feet, not feeling well enough to jump onto the couch with us. I think she's getting fat.

The Box.People around the school knew Gerard Way as the creepy guy that dyed his hair a lot.The Box.2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
His classmates knew him as the guy who sat in the corner and didn't talk to anybody.
His friends, you could say, knew him as the one that drew amazingly, who was going to make it far in the comic industry.
His brother knew him as the best sibling in the world.
I knew him as my boyfriend.
Notice I say "knew", as in the past tense of "know"?
Well Gerard killed himself a week before our high school graduation.
He, he said the bullying was too much. He said that it's been going on ever since he was fifteenthe year he finally felt proud enough t

"Shut the fuck up, Gerard," my little brother teases from the other side of the tour bus as he types away on his Sidekick.
"How about you stop telling me what to do and just continue sexting with your little boyfriend?" I laugh to myself and get up from the chair I was planted in for the last ten minutes. I sway over to the counter and reach for the coffee machine, but a hand slaps at mine. When I look up, I see Mikey Way.
"Why'd you do that for? Your big bro needs his coffee." I attempt once more to grab at the pot, but Mikey ends up pushing my hand away and knocking me upside the head.

He knows he won't be that good at it, but it'll be fun to think about shooting sharp arrows into targets or his classmates.
The only problem is that he doesn't want to sign up by himself. That'll just make him a weirdo.
So, after the final bell rings, he walks out his Biology classroom and heads over to his friend's locker, knowing he'll be

First Day.The first time Frank Iero fell in love was in the sandbox.First Day.1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
He was only eight at the time, but he knew it was still love. Sure, his hands were covered with dirt, his face was scratched up, and his eyes were red from crying all day, but he knew it was still that wonderful, overwhelming emotion.
He was sitting in the sandbox at his elementary school, the sand and other materials covering him from head to toe. Maybe that's why he was crying, but it was so long agohe can't remember now.
It was late at nightwell, late to an eight-year-old, so it was only around five. It was chilly outsideit only being around twenty degrees Fahr

"Seriously, Poison? Out of all the things in the world, you choose to miss milk." He snorts and shakes his head, looking off to the side.
I sink deeper into the diner's roughly cushioned chair, a frown on my face. That's not all I miss, I want to say. I run my fingertips along the table top's surface, my hazel eyes clouding up with tears. One falls out my left eye.
I miss the old you.

He grinds my hips into the sand, pressing his mouth to my ear. His hot breath attacks the brim. "I swear I just saw it."
My lips tremble. "You're lying. They're all gone."
His tongue attaches to my neck, licking up the sweat. It swirls around my ear lobe as his hands lay on my sides, pressing my belly closer to the ground. "Why would I lie?"
My breath catches in my throat when I hear a small hooting sound come from above us.
Poison softly chuckles. "I wouldn't lie to you."

He was told he wasn't perfect.
And after years and years of ridicule and judgment, he started to believe them.
He'd spend hours in front of the mirror, poking at the fatty areas on his stomach, the disgusting parts on his thighs, and the flabby skin on his arms.
He hated it all, and he couldn't understand why his imperfectionshis flawswouldn't leave him alone.
He'd done all the right things.
He'd, sorta, eat healthy. Well, healthier than he was eating before.
He'd purged at all the right times.
He'd known when to starve himself to the point right before his body went into starvation mode. He hadn't wanted that. He'd heard

"C'mon. It's for the yearbook," Frank sings, and he waves the camera around before putting it back to his face.
I still don't. I turn my head to look down at the tiled floor of the sophomore hallway. "I don't like my smile. It's awkward, and my teeth are small and stupid." I kick the ground.
Frank sighs, and he goes to lean up against the locker beside me. "I think your smile's beautiful." He grabs at my hand. "You're going to have to smile. Picture day's coming up."
I grimace, but squeeze his hand back. "Whatever."

"Okay, okay, fine," I say, and we head toward the tall, scary ride. My heart beats in my throat. "I don't wanna do this anymore."
I sit on a bench outside the roller coaster I had just gotten off. I'm curled over into a small ball, my chest touching my knees. My breathing is out of control, and my stomach continues to grumble from my nervousness and the emptiness of it, since I had thrown up a few minutes prior.
I cough a bit and close my eyes.

I'm naturally drawn to beauty. It's something I personally find rare enough to put on a pedestal; that anything beautiful is meant to be examined and admired.
I'm also more curious than a normal person should be. I guess it's in my genes, and that's something I can't necessarily just wash out.
The first time was an accident.
He had to have known his curtains and blinds were wide open, exposing not just a window, but a huge bay window, on the other side of which was his bedroom. It always struck me as odd of someone to require such a large window in the room where the most private things are accomplis

I slowly relax, letting my breath come out in slow strides. "Any famous last words, punk?" I hear him murmur to me, and I find myself shaking my head.
My lips are stitched shut.
The barrel of his gun digs deeper into my chin. "You sure? You're always so colorful with the way you handle things. Isn't this one of those situations?"
I slowly close my eyes, my lips trembling. My muscles loosen, and I meet peace.
Killjoys never die.
He shoots me.

I gripped his hand between my fingers. I was so nervous, my palms clammy, but it was worth having his touch. A smile brightened our faces as out lips collided, a kiss, soft and quick. My cheeks reddened anyways. We giggled at the tiny fireworks that filled our stomachs, they were just another thing we could share, another thing we had in common. I never wanted to let go of his hand. Maybe I wouldn't. I bit my lip in shyness, trying to hide my blushing face in my shoulder.
His hand cupped under my chin. "You're beautiful, Franky," he smiled. I felt my insides melt, a warmth drip into my insides. I tried to hold back my goofy smile, but it for

She moans, and this just causes me to run my hands toward her front. I touch her groin, her stomach, her chest. I pause for a moment to look over her shoulder. I clear my throat, and she straightens up. "I'm only sixteen. My parents wouldn't let me get fake boobies for my twenty-year-old boyfriend."
I smile. "That's okay, Frank. We can still fuck."

The strangest thing happened today. When I walked out of my apartment, Frank was there, sitting by the door. I jumped, of course. Why wouldn't I? And Frank slowly raised himself up and tried to be eye level with me. He sorta stared me down, and then he only said that he was spending the night here. He walked into the house, dragging a bag behind him. I didn't even see the bag.
I don't really wanna question why he's staying here, but I feel like I should.
Frank mentioned seeing Jamia's parents over the whole ordeal, and that he wanted to skip it, but I'm not sure I heard him correctly…
Frank didn't want to skip meeting his soon-to-be in-laws.
Frank didn't want an abortion.
Frank doesn't want to cuddle.

Of course, high school boys will be boys, running around and acting like they're faggots to get a laugh out of everybody. Frank Iero was one of those boys. He was practically the main one they all went to, hoping to get a quick laugh out of the other students. Picking people up, holding them, humping their backs, and cupping their asses, well, Frank was an expert at that. S

The other doesn't answer at first. He shakes his head and walks over to his bed, grabbing a black suit jacket, rubbing his thumbs into the shoulder of it. "Sick."

I groan and slowly raise up from the bed, taking a quick glance around the room. I'm in Mikey's bed with him beside me, curled up in a ball, holding a pillow to his chest.

The last of my friends is acting like a total badass just chilling in the farthest corner of the room with the hood of his jacket pulled over his head.
