"If all our life is but a dream " Brendon sings as the crowd dies down from cheering after I said, "Our next song is Northern Downpour!"
"For diamonds do appear to be" Brendon pauses and throws it to the audience,
"Just like broken glass to me." The thousands of boys and girls sing.
By the middle of the song, he throws me a smile. I give my best attempted smile back as I sing, "Sugar cane in the easy morning."
By the time the concert ends, we make our way to the side of the building to say hello to some of the fans. Some of their faces screaming in enjoyment, others drowning in happy tears. I give out my best smiles for photos, my best signatures for the young 14 year old's arms. I see old faces and some brand new ones too bad at this point I feel so out of tact about everything.
Zack says, "Alright guys time to come in!"
The crowd of kids that probably spent hours in line all say, "awwww" almost in perfect unison.
I give my last waves and hugs to the kids.

On Tuesday afternoons after school, while Spencer's at work, I usually head down to the music rooms at school. They have a couple pianos and a few acoustic guitars down there for random people to practice with. I thought I could just mess around until I decided to go home, so right after my sixth hour German class, I headed down to make sure I got an instrument and a practice room. It was hit or miss sometimes. You could get one or two kids in there and other times it's packed. Thankfully, though, it sounded deserted; just a few band kids in one of the rooms. As I rounded the corner to turn into the choral room, I heard the sweet eeriness of soft minor chords of the only grand piano. I stopped in my tracks when I saw who was sitting on the wooden bench. His back was to me, but I would recognize him anywhere.
As the chords progressed, he took a breath and started to sing. "Hello, there, angel from my nightmare," his flawless voice sang softly. My breath caught in my throat

"Why not, Ryan? Please?"
"I said no." Ryan muttered before scooting away from Brendon. They were sitting in Ryan's living room. The TV was on in the background and piles of homework cluttered the floor. The room was small, which made Ryan's movement seem like nothing. It was as if he hadn't even moved.
Brendon groaned. "It's always no, Ryan. It's always no and I hate it."
"I don't care."
"Don't you want to try? You've never had your first kiss and neither have I so let's change that!"
Ryan looked up from his homework at Brendon. "I've had my first kiss," he said. "You're the one who hasn't." He glared at Brendon. This conversation came up every day. Ryan considered Brendon as his friend, nothing more. But Brendon was curious. Curious in the sense that he wanted to try new things, no matter what those things may be. And Ryan was one of those things. Sure, Brendon was attractive, Ry

I heard a clatter in my room as I stepped in side. I opened the door to find Brenon lying on the floor, and all my papers and pens scattered all around him. I moved over and helped him up. Was he going through my things? I wondered.
"Thanks" He said.
I set him on my bed; which would be his new bed soon. He massaged his knee. Rubbing his fingers into the skin. Trying to relax his joints. I wet a rag from the bathroom and gave it to him. He rolled up his pant leg and set it on te area. I pulled my bag out from under the bed. I started tossing in my clothes and various miscellaneous items.
"Ryan?" He called.
"Yes?" I continued packing, not giving him any kind of eye contact. I turned to grab my guitar. Brendon was at my side, aliready on his feet. He gripped both my wrists in his hands and pinned them above my head against the wall. He looked me straight in the eyes. The dim lighting in the room made his eyes seem bleak and anxious. I wasn't scared

Saturday. Finally, the weekend. Of course, I had homework, but it's nothing that a late Sunday night and a few Red Bulls won't accomplish. My dad worked on the weekends so I had the house all to myself. Not that that was any different from the rest of the week. He'd always leave for work before I got up for school then be home and have gone to the bar by the time I'd get home from school. I wouldn't see him for the rest of the night if I was lucky. Sometimes, though, he'd surprise me and come home early already hammered and, well, you know the rest and if you don't, you really don't belong reading this, you idiot.
Being a teenager, you'd think that I wouldn't drag my lazy ass out of bed until about one in the afternoon, but that's not how I roll. I usually get up around nine thirty on a good day. Of course, if I had had a bad night, it would be around eleven. Then again, I may never have fallen asleep. That always sucks. Those nights where sleep is less kind, my thoughts r

A loud cheer. I grabbed my guitar and started playing.
As I sang, I looked out over the crowd. As good as everyone was crying. My eyes were threatening to spill as well.
And during, the second verse, while singing "I know the world's a broken bone, but melt your headaches, call it home", I noticed somebody in the very front. He was, with help from Zack, making his way up on stage.
As I realised just who it was, I, shocked, stopped playing. Dallon looked at me, bewildered, Ian mimicked "What's wrong?" and Spencer stopped drumming. The crowd was exchanging confused whispers. I only had eyes for him, as he came walking up to me.
The crowd gasped as they recognised him. Then they started screaming.
"Oh my gosh, it's Ryan!"
I stared at him.
"What are you doing here?"
He looked me straight in the eyes.

"What are you supposed to wear to these things?" I asked, frantically ripping through the closet. We decided to go out for a bit of fun tonight. Brendon had recently heard of a local "eighteen and up" club that he said was supposed to be pretty interesting. We wouldn't even have to sneak Spencer in.
Jon and Claire seemed to be hitting it off so they were going to join us as well as Spencer and Hayley. We were just going to meet up there around nine so we didn't all have to jam into my car.
"How should I know? I'd be fine if you didn't wear anything actually," Brendon shrugged.
"Yes, I'm going to show up at a club completely naked. Good plan."
Brendon walked over to me, drew me close, and whispered seductively, "I wouldn't mind "
I blushed as a few inappropriate thoughts passed through my mind. Pressing my lips to his quickly, I tried to pull away as Brendon's mouth followed me.
Smiling, I broke free. "Seriously, though. Are these things casual? Semi formal?" I rambled
You found me-BrencerBrendon might be a spazz and have an odd thought process, but he really knew how to make you think and notice how things worked. Yeah, at times he didn't know when to shut up or when to stop cupping a feel of Ryan on stage whenever he could, but that was just Brendon. It was who he was. He was just being himself. And sometimes even when you tell people how to live life easier, you have to break your own rules. Even Brendon broke his own rules.You found me-Brencer5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

They're my favorite!",I moved away from my bunk to go down to Jon's. Of course, they weren't there. "Okay, I repeat, they're shoes.",my older friend stood there, looking down at me.

December came and it got increasingly harder to be around Brendon without having to control myself. That boy he does things to me. It should be illegal.
Brendon, Spencer, and I had been practicing in Spencer's garage, sort of making progress with things. It's hard to make progress when you really don't have much to begin and a singer who has ADHD and insists on drinking Red Bull right before practice.
If you haven't noticed, we decided to keep Brendon as our singer. He refused at first when we told him, but I assured him that I was totally cool with being replaced. He smiled at that. God, that boy's smile makes me go weak at the knees. Excuse the desperate teenage girl-ish thoughts.

Ryan and Ian were playing the last tones of Time To Dance and I was prancing around, flirting with the crowd. A surprisingly large amount of people had shown up, joining us in our celebratory concert, instead of going out partying.
"You guys are fucking fantastic and I love you, we all do, you're amazing. Alright Spence, what time is it?"
Spencer checked his wristwatch. "A minute left!"
"Alright, you guys wanna join us in counting down?"
A great scream of approval. And then, one single voice screams out.
"Brendon, kiss Ryan!"
Everyone starts screaming again. I look at Ryan. He looks down, blushing.
"KISS! KISS! KISS!"
I look out at the crowd. And, with a laughter, I walk over to him.
"Ten seconds!" Spencer shouts. The crowd starts counting down.
"Ten, nine, eight..."
I've reached Ryan and I lift his chin up with my finger.
"... seven, six, five..."
I place an arm on his waist. He smiles and puts both of his around my neck.

Brendon breathes in through his nose, humidity and sodium pricking at the insides of his nasals. He toes at the cool sand, wet and comforting.
It's not quite familiar, not quite reminiscent enough. Not naked enough, not happy enough.
And really, he's not sad at all. He's not really lonely, not angry, in all actuality, he would probably say that he is content.
Contentment is a fantastic feeling, he thinks.
He thinks of nakedness, of damp cigarettes and the sand stuck between his toes for weeks.
He kept a pocket full in a ziplock bag up until about a year ago.
He threw it out into the pacific like he would scatter ashes.
The death of something too old to keep living; ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
He smiles to himself, too bashful to be just for himself, and he looks down at the waves splashing at his ankles.
He told Spencer where he was going. He told Zack that he was going alone. They

Sam darted into the dark alley, hiding the precious jewel within her cloak. She knew that any moment now, the Dukes soldiers would be scouring the city in search of her. Her mother had become ill, so lately it had been her job to support her broken family.
Sam didn't particularily LIKE robbing from the Duke and Dutchess, but she had no other choice. Everyone else in the city were peasants, but not to the same degree as Sam. The only others that Sam could possibly rob would be the widowed Queen, but that would be near impossible since she was very protective of her castle.
Sams bare feet screamed in pain as she dashed through the streets, and her mind wandered to the Queen. No one ever really discovered what happened to her husband, but ever since she had gotten triple the amount of guards and rarely left the castle walls.

She stood there trying to figure out Freddie and she noticed that he seemed to be shifting his eyes back and forth. She was pretty sure he was in shock but couldn't tell anything more than that. She was a little shocked at her own actions as well.
Sure she was impulsive but never this reckless about her own emotions. The first word that came to mind since she spent a lot of her life saying it about things she had done was "sorry." She was sorry not that she had kissed Freddie but that she had acted so wildly about it. She breathed a little sigh of relief when Freddie finally spoke. "It' cool" that is all Freddie had to say about it at that moment. That response was not a lot of help to Sam as it gave her no real help in knowing what he was thinking.

"Just try it, man!" A quirky little blonde exclaimed flailing her arms about.
Oh so these hipsters were actually wannabe hippies too? Fantastic. Ryan cocked his head to the side, facing Brendon as if to ask if he wanted to give it a go.

Gibby was standing to his right, wearing much nicer clothing than usual. Fredward had insisted to his mother that Gibby join him at the ball since they were best friends. After some fussing, Queen Benson agreed, and had Gibby dressed like a squire.

It was the first day of school, and as always the lockers of the high school were dusty and rusty. The floor could actually be seen, but that was only because no students had invaded the grounds yet, and the smell of old and new text books was in the air.
Brendon walked in the wide red front doors as last years prom king, along with his girlfriend Kaatie. They were walking hand in hand. They kissed in the middle of the hallway upon entering, ignoring the shouts coming from all directions and the horse playing of all the kids around them. They didnt even notice the welcoming senior banner fall down on them. They were the stars of the school, and it didnt matter who you were, you knew every little detail about them whether you wanted to or not. They had the whole school wired, and worst of all they seemed inseperable.

I could not, for the life of me, grab the slightest bit of composure. It didn't seem like I was facing reality. This whole situation felt more like I was floating down stream in a tiny row boat.
