"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.

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

"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

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.

Moving day had finally rolled around. Matt had already signed all the necessary paperwork. The place was paid in full. No rent. And man was it big! I had been before, but the place just really opened up now that we had moved in and arranged all the furniture.
I watched Brendon run up the stage. He did a catwalk, followed by a rather impressive back flip. I applauded him. I honestly didn't think he would land it. It was surprise after surprise with him. He was so impulsive, and I loved that about him. I tended to be a little to shy towards certain things. I wish that I could open up the way Bren did. Or live life like there was no tomorrow like Frank, And Pete, he took so much shit yet always managed to brush it off and keep going. Everyone here had such admirable traits.

It was long ago
I said my part.
I hurt her already.
So why was it.
I snapped at that.
Something so stupid.
My whole life, I was just being used.
My kindness got the better of me and random people just used me.
The moment they realize this beast was harmless.
They took advantage.
From the very beginning, I was being used.
And when I finally realized that, I held a grudge.
I learned to hate her. Yet in the end I still fall under her lies.
I obediently did everything you wanted me to do. I cleared your name and dirtied my own hands.
I took your burden and placed it on my own shoulders.
Finally one day I just snapped at you, and you left me. Never to return.
That day I cried. But I was confused, my mind and heart couldn't make a choice.
Was these tears of happiness. Or sorrow?
Did the little girl inside me, who loved you so dearly, regret what I said.
Or was I happy, that finally, this cage I was in was now unlocked.

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
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

He had been here for like 4 hours & he was getting quite bored with these whorish girls. He neared the exit when he saw the most perfect creature he'd ever laid his eyes on. She hair that just grazed her shoulders. She was wearing a tight pink t-shirt that showed off her pretty much flat chest. Sure there wasn't much to look at up there, but the story was completely different with her bottom half. She had curvy hips, making Jon practically buck at the sight. She shyly stood by herself against the wall. Jon needed this girl. He walked up to her, taking her by the hand to the middle of the dance floor. He got behind her, grinding himself into

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.

But I showed him your... Hey your bleeding!" He reached for the cut above my eye. I flinched and he pulled his hand back. I grabbed him by the wrists and dragged him upstairs. It was the longest 5 minutes of my life.
When we got to the room, Frank's face froze. He thought hard for a really long time. Then he sent me out of the room to go get Matt and Josh.

no, she refused to set a bar

she earned her place
