I gave the remains of my pizza slice to Ashley. I couldn't choak down anymore.
Night had fallen and the moon was high up, full and streaming through the windows in Ashley's room where we sat, playing Uno and eating.
"Andy you need to eat it." he said "You didn't eat at all today."
Yes kiddies. On top of everything else that was screwed up with me, I'm anorexic. Plus I just hated pizza. The texture didn't feel right, all slimey and soft, the taste was weird and it just didn't feel right. I shook my head and pushed the half eaten slice back at him. "I don't want it."
Ashley sighed and put it on the bedside table, having to reach around me to get there. His elbow brushed against my thighs, making me jump inside.
"Color change blue." he said, laying down a Wild card.
"You suck." I said, grabbing a card out of the pile. "Pass."
He grinned and put down a switch card. It seems pretty pointless when you only have two people but that gives you a

I woke up that morning, if you count 12:30 as morning still lightly gripping Andy's soft hand, his pale white fingers twined with my tan ones, the red nail polish he wore on one finger standing out against the rest of them. I always wondered why he did that, maybe it symbolized something. I'm not sure.
The sun lit up the walls of my room, making it seem bigger then it actually was. It also shone down gently onto Andy's sleeping figure, causing him to glow like an angel.
He was an angel.
I remembered what we did last night, my belly churned and I blushed inside. Andy's moans still echoed in my head like a song on loop, a good song, not a bad song. Then pushing him away after he had come. Next time. I thought. Yeah, next time.
When was next time? I never wanted to force him to do anything, even if he was my "bitch for the night" last night. Andy was so sweet, and sex does some pretty weird changes to people. I would know, since I ha

I had ot spend the night in the hospital. Not sleep, you're not SUPPOSED to sleep with a concussion. Oh well, I'm not tired anyway.
I sat alone in the dim-lit hospital room, decorated with bright colored roses and some "get well soon, motherfucker." cards from my cousins that my mom had brought in. I had my eyes glued to the TV screen and my hands clutching the game controller as i played Battlestar Galactia. My 8-bit space jet shooting missiles at the 8-bit alien bug things. I never knew what they were, they look like wasps from Mars to me.
I heard footsteps from the hallway. Even though visiting hours ended a while ago, 5 hours to be exact, people still came in and wandered in on the people they knew seeing as this was considered the "ghetto hospital" and the doctors didn't care if people came in to see us or not. They just wanted their shift over.
I groaned angrily as I lost another life. Damn space wasps kept hitting me! The footsteps from the ha

I didn't want to go to school. I didn't want to wake up. I didn't want to move.
I lay in my bed, wrapped up in my blanket and staring at the wall. The little bumps and ridges stared back at me. I cocooned myself in my blanket all night, wrapped around my skinny frame. It was hotter then hell but I didn't care. I was numb anyway, only the cuts on my arm provided feeling.
I didn't sleep. I would close my eyes for a few minuets and see him again, then jerk awake screaming. I'll never forget that wicked smile he gave me, causing me to shudder or cry every time it flashed in my head. Luckily my blanket cocoon muffled it from anyone being woken up and questioning me...especially him.
My blanket was one of those really fluffy ones, long enough to wrap around me twice but still hung over my bed slightly. It had a soft texture and was plaid black and grey, about 1 inches thick when ironed. I've had it since I was little.
When the sun started rising I hid even deeper

A couple months later.
"Get back here!"
I ran blindly through my house, stumbling over rugs and other shit thrown throughout my house. Pete chased me, waving his belt over his head and screaming at me. Among the footsteps I could hear my mom screaming at Pete to leave me alone.
I knocked over the kitchen chairs, blocking his path, only to be cornered between the table and the kitchen sink. I hopped from foot to foot, going one way then the other, trying to confuse him.
In the back of my mind I remembered Ashley telling me to "haul ass" over to his house if Pete went after me again. I planned on doing that, I knew this neighborhood inside and out. Every crack in the sidewalk every path behind the houses every tree was carved into my memory like hieroglyphs. As I swayed I maped what passage I'd take to Ashley's.
I dove sideways and Pete ran at me. I dropped under the table, crawling as fast as I can and ran to the door, unlatching it and swinging it open;

Ashley and I turned around, fear jerking through me and I felt like my life was flashing right before my eyes, just as it had done many times before. The jock boy, needless to say was a whole lot taller then the both of us combined bore his weight down on our shoulders, he was one of those overly-muscular guys who was probably on steroids. Stubble covered his face, an evil grin on his lips. His buddies cornered us against the wall, all wearing the same clothes: jock jackets and blue jeans. Ashley cowered into my side.
The jocks crossed their arms, laughing at us. Huddled together and freaked the fuck out. One of them spit on the ground in front of us and laughed when I jumped out of the way.
"Not so tough now, are yah?" he gruffed, looking happily at me.
"What?" I've never been tough...
"He doesn't remember! I'll be damned." one of the others said.
"What are oyu guys talking about?" Ashley demanded.

You're sure about this?"
Andy and I stood in front of the mirror in my tiny bathroom area, his hair completely clean and surprisingly waver then the ocean. A box of black hair dye sat on the sink, its contents out and in Andy's gloved hands. He ran a free hand through his dirty blonde hair. He turned his head left then right, studying his natural color as he'd been doing for the past 5 minuets.
"Yeah..." he said, poking at the jawline-long blonde hair.
I was only here to help him with the back of his head. Otherwise he could do this all himself.
In the few months we'd known eachother Andy and I had become best friends. We liked the same music, style, our sense of humor clashed but we still laughed our asses off at eachother. Andy still had that sad puppy twinge to him, just as he had when I first met him. I've been trying my best to make him happy.
Once when I found him crying near the Git-N-Go gas station. He just sat at the back of the building

It was raining like crazy by the time I had left Ashley's house, making my still-warm shirt cold and wet again. I turned down Ashley's offer for an umbrella since Pete would probably break it if he decides to have a rage fit again.
I kept my head down and my bag over my neck and head as I ran up the winding street. I stepped nimbly over all the dents and cracks in the sidewalk, since more then once I've mapped them out in my head when trying to run away. I was always caught though.
So many times had Pete pissed me off to the point of packing what few valuables I had and climbing out during the night, running down the street in almost complete darkness and trying to find the shelter. In the process, usually the police found me or my mom did. I could never tell the police why I'd run away, my mom knew right away and just told me to get in the car. She'd sneak me in.
My house was just in sight when I tripped on my shoelace and dived head-first into a pudd

When I got back to school I was glad to see that Andy was there, still freakish and not a jock yet. He was sitting on the stairs outside the school, his head buried in his backpack as he sat against the redbrick school building, the wind blowing his hair slightly.
I was nervous weather or not to go get him, but he looked cold. Everyone had sweat shirts or jackets or long sleeves on while the poor kid only had a black tank and elbow-length gloves, white ripped up jeans too. I took a deep breath and started towards him, unzipping my over-sized jacket to give to him. As I got closer I saw a bruise on his shoulder, dark purple with some yellow around the edges.
"Hey Andy." I said quickly.
His head snapped up, his blue eyes looked fearfully up at me for a split second before relaxing. His ruby-red lips pulled into a smile. Even in cloudy weather his pale face lit up like an angel.
"You're back!" he said happily.
"Yeah." I put my bag down and rested my jacke

In a large middle school cafeteria many students chattered and laughed, being gleeful as any regular group of 12 and 13 year olds would be. On the far side of the room sat the sportsy boys, heavy built with red and white jock jackets, even through most of them were one the soccer team and their short hair was spiked up, giving a headgehog type look. Near them were the cheerleaders, which also mixed with the popular girl and girly-girl groups. They giggled and gossiped, occasionally gasping and play-hitting eachother, putting on more bubble gum pink lipstick every 10 minuets. There was the averages, who sat in the middle more part of the room. Some talked about TV, video games, their boyfriends or girlfriends. The nerds sat in a small table within the averages.
Then there was the "Freak corner"; for the "freaks."
Multi-colored hair, dark and/or black clothing, bandanas around their necks or sliced up gloves on their hands with rings in their lips.

The next few days were horrible for me. Andy hadn't come to school after he was shoved in the police car, I hadn't seen Mrs. Biersack anywhere and I had no one to really talk closely to other than CC, Jake, Jinxx and Sandra. They were cool, but they weren't Andy.
Did I mention I had gone into some kind of depression cocoon? After school I went right up stairs and locked myself in my bedroom and either slept or drew pictures. By wednesday I had filled half my journal with drawings and poems, Auntie was getting worried...so were the other four.
"Since Andy left you've become some kind of angry hermit crab that writes all day." CC said.
I was quiet and kept scribbling in notebook.
"Denying our help isn't going to do anything either." Sandra said.
"I'm not denying anything, I just don't accept it." I grumbled, erasing a stray line.
"Why can't you?" Jake demanded.
I slammed down my pencil, causing the tip to fly off and roll onto the table. I glared at Jake, his expre

I haven't rode in a car in years. An actual car, not a bus or an off roader. As I walked outside with Mrs. Biersack I stopped beside it, unsure which one I should sit in.
"Passenger side is on the other end, Ash." Mrs. Biersack said, coming up to me and opening the driver's side door. I walked around the other side and tugged open the door. The seat was way too low but still comfy once you got settled. She stuck the keys in the ignition and started the car, it was a lot quieter then Auntie's bike. It barely shook, which I wasn't used to.
I raced up the steps in front of the jailhouse, pushing off the concrete quickly amd making loud tapping sounds with my foot. At the top I realized Mrs. Biersack was still a ways away, so I held the door for everyone. An older woman smiled greatfully at me.
"Thank you, young one." She said, hesitating in the middle of the sentance.
It was a force of habit for me to hold doors for pe

I saw Andy just as the gates slid open. For a second I didn't recognize him, then I saw his baby blue eyes light up and run to the car. I kicked open the door for him and immediately hug tackled him when he sat on the edge of the seat. He flung his arms around me as I broke down into tears, burying my head in the crook of his neck. I felt him smile against me and pat my back. Within a few seconds he let go and leaned forward, embracing the crying Mrs. Biersack. After a few moments of hugs and kisses, he sat back beside me and shut the door then rested his hand on mine. I smiled at him and re-buckled my seat-belt.
Andy looked different than the last time I saw him. His hair was parted on the right side of his head and his roots were obviously showing, he grew a bit therefore having more muscles and his scars were almost gone. He still had the silver lip ring I remembered so clearly that shined when he smiled. He jerked his head to the side to get the extra hair

I swore softly as I slowly peeled off the multiple bandaids I had stuck to my leg. The tan tape like material ripping at the hair under the sticky part. Luckily, it didn't peel off any of the giant scab that had formed over the cut.
I watched as blood began to swell around the cut and run down the side of my thigh. After the blood came the sting, like millions of tiny needles were being pushed into my skin and moved around in agonizing circles inside of it. I swore again and quickly rushed to the bathroom, grabbing a black washcloth and pressing it against my thigh.
"Ashley you fucking idiot!" I screamed at myself as I felt the small towel sink under the wetness of blood. I kicked off my underwear and climbed into the bathtub, trying to find a good tempature. I knew warm water killed bacteria but cool water felt better on it I bet. I chose lukewarm water and sat next to the tap, letting the water pour onto it and wash the still flowing blood away.

It had been forever since I had seen Andy or visited him. I was only allowed to write him letters from now on because I had snuck out of school another 3 or 4 times to go see him. I was only caught twice but fessed up to my "crimes" when the giant police officers questioned me. Ashley Purdy wasn't scared of anybody...unless they were 5 feet taller than me and had a belt full of weapons that could blow me into next week. At first I was upset but I really didn't want to deal with the police anymore. Instead we wrote letters to eachother, the first letter almost wrecked my heart.
I still have yet to reply to his last letter from last week. Even though Andy had the worst handwriting ever, I could still read it.
The letter wasn't very long or even interesting, he talked about how shitty the prison was and how much he wanted to be out. I was hoping it would be soon, so I could show him around the new highschool. He hasn't be

Ashley gasped right into my ear, moaning, his hands clinging to my shoulders while we rocked back and forth. Drenched in sweat, hair ruined, I couldn't care less. His skin sliding over mine, our mouths crashing together every few times when I hit a good spot within his body. I sat up on my knees between his legs so I could move faster easier. He arched his back giving me enough room so hook my arms under him and kiss his abdomen, running my tongue over his warm skin. He gave an orgasmic moan and bucked upward. "Andy!"
The room was dark, the only light given off by the just-rising moon in the sky that shone through the window. You could hear the annoying buzzing ring given off by the secedes, a few crickets chirped every now and again. I had my arms wrapped around Ashley's middle, hugging his body against mine. His hair pushed out of the way so I could breathe. I nuzzled into his shoulder and put my foot between his, getting more comfor
Our Razorblade Symphont chapter 27As expected, most classes went the same as usual. I got stares, whispers and snickers from my former classmates and confused glances from ones I didn't know. They obviously didn't know me, but the majority did. Either went ot school or heard the news. Some of them looked a little scared when I walked by...they never would have looked at me like that before...I wasn't sure weather to be happy or mad. I found it pretty amusing.Our Razorblade Symphont chapter 273 years ago in Romance More Like This
Another amusing thing was certain teachers would ask me what school I "transfered" from, totally oblivious that they're talking to a convicted murderer. Being the smartass I became there I replied "Prison School" and listened for the girls to gasp in horror, or else admiration. I doubted admiration. The best part is I usually have to sit alone or near the front, just in case I decide to kill somebody. Didn't they know I did it out of self-defense? If I just killed him for the hell of it I sure as FUCK would not be out in two years. I almost regretted my decision,
Our Razorblade Symphony chapter 26Today was the first day of school for me since almost 2 years ago. I tried to feel normal about it, exited to be around other people again who hadn't killed someone or commited some kind of crime. I combed through my hair again, getting out the small snarls I missed the first five times. My hair was starting to puff up to my displeasure. I grabbed some hairspray and sprayed it all over my head, making it have an oily glow. At least it was staying down.Our Razorblade Symphony chapter 263 years ago in Romance More Like This
I scrambled down the stairs, snatching my old backpack off the handy new hook that hung on the wall next to the staircase. I planned to walk to school with Ashley today, like normal. But the city had other plans: For the next 2 or 3 months I was to have a police officer "escort" me to school because of some parole thing. I plopped onto the newly furnished sofa, stain free and twice as squishy as before, and turned on the TV to see what was on actual television other than Oprah and the news. Cartoons were the first thing to come on as I s

On my way out of class I tried to catch up to Ashley. Peering over heads, trying ot find him in the crowd of all my classmates. Everyone seemed to be walking shoulder-to-shoulder and slower then a turtle, sealing him out of sight. I grumbled softly and shouldered my way around a couple popular kids, accidently knocking the books out of a cheerleader's hands.
"Watch it, dumb fuck!" she snarled, bending over to pick them up. I seemed to be the only male in the hallway who didn't stop to watch her gather papers, I was busy trying to catch up to him while the crowd slowed down. I stopped and swiveled my head side to side, searching for him...
CC slammed his hands down on my shoulders, pushing off the ground and jumping a little bit, scaring me senseless for a second. I glared, unamused.

Rebel High - Chapter 1.
(Insert chapter title here)
Just another day at this hell hole of a school, sitting as usual in my isolated section of the classroom with the people who hated me. I was dark, black makeup and clothing, dyed hair and skinnier then a rail while the "normal" ones were bright, blonde and so happy it was almost scary. Then there was me, never smile in public, quiet Andy.
I sketched a picture of Batman on the side of my test, trying to think. Math always got to me, the numbers just seemed to be everywhere and then the letters that symbolize the numbers and all the equations that made my brain feel like an empty box full of stupid when I tried to figure them out. It was especially hard when the blonde bitch sitting next to me poped her gum every 3 minuets and had a pencil eraser that could wake the dead.
I seemed to be the only one of my kind here, aside from the 3 friends I had. They all were in another class though. None of us had a class together except the las

I woke up, this time in the morning. The sun lit up my room and gave the creamy ehite walls a warm glow. I stretched my arms above my head, cracked every bone in my spine, then kicked off my blankets and got dressed. My normal routine.
As I was scribbling on eyeliner on my eyelids I checked my phone, using my free hand to unlock it. Another video message, untitled from CC. I finished my right eye and opened the message.
It was even darker then the other one, you could barely make out the outlines of them. I saw Jake and unmistakably the form of Ashley, talking. Ashley's voice sounded like he was crying almost, picking at the low E string as he spoke. Jake said something back, hen the camera shifted and blurred everything. When it re-focused on Jake and Ashley....
I can't describe what they were doing, but it made anger and jealousy rise in my tummy. I covered my mouth, watching as the camera shifted again and all went black. Some more of Ashley talking then the video cut off.

That afternoon I was in my room, laying chest down on the floor, staring at the wall. Most normal people would go do something when they're bored, like write or hang out with friends or masturbate or do something else, I just stare at walls and think about things.
"Andy!" mom opened the door, causing it to hit me in the head. I yelped and jerked away, holding the side of my head. "What?"
Mom frowned. "Are you okay? Jake is on the phone." she said, handing me the house phone.
"I'm fine." I said, rubbing my head and taking the phone. "Yeah?"
"Hey its Jake" Jake said over the phone. I rolled my eyes, thank you caption obvious. "Did you hear what that Ashley kid did? CC told me you liked him."
I blushed. Jake knew that I was bi, and CC had to have told him since those two are like yin and yang together. "I don't like-like him, he just seemed like a cool guy."

I was rooted in spot as Ashley crumbled to the ground, losing conciseness. Jake and CC rushed over, kneeling beside him. Jake reached down and started shaking his shoulder, CC was biting his nails. I tried to move...
"Andy if you really love him you'll get your ass over here because I don;t know CPR!" Jake called, being the only one who wasn't freaked out.
"I-I" I stammered, unable to talk or move. It felt like invisible ropes were tying my feet to the ground, keeping me in place unable to get to him. I fought hard against the invisible I tripped over my own feet and frantically crawled over.
He was paler then he should be, his eyes closed peacefully, his arms lazily bent and his hands by his shoulders. I stood over him and shook him, unable to bring him back to conciseness that way I looked helplessly at CC and Jake. "What do I do!?"

No worries Ashley, she just has first class with you.' I thought to myself, dragging my feet across the pavement. No doubt ruining the tread on them. I've never had a real girlfriend before, just friend crushes and elementary "relationships" that broke off the next year. I mean, Kina was pretty and all but I'm a nervous fucking wreck inside.
I was first in the room since everyone else was either outside or eating breakfast. Our teacher was sitting at her desk, typing away at her computer like always. I sighed and put in my earbuds, blasting a Papa Roach song on full volume and watching the door.
She was last in, right when the bell rang. I put away my mp3 player and sat through the class, hoping to catch her afterwards to talk. She sweeps a lock of blonde hair behind her head as she works, writing down the homework the teacher had given us.

I nodded at the short girl that I'd only heard a little about. "Nice to meet you."
Andy jumped up and gave her a hug. "Sandy!"
"Hey Andy," she said, ruffling his hair, which was especially comical since she was so much shorter than him.
We all sat down and started talking. Sandra explained a few things to me, how she had been their first drummer and left to join Modern Day Escape. She talked about her girlfriend. Andy and I looked at each other, grinning.
"I know that look. Batmandy, talk, now," she said. I grinned even wider at his nickname.
"Batmandy and I are together," I said, smiling and leaning my head on his shoulder. He wrapped an arm around my waist and smiled at me.
Sandra grinned. "That's fantastic! If you hurt him I'll fucking kill you."
I smiled and nodded. "I wouldn't dream of it."
We laughed and joked around for a few hours when Sandra got a text.
