When My Life Changed Ch. 16: How much do you really care?
Jeff took a moment to think. "Well, I honestly don't know why it happe-" "Your lying!!" BEN interrupted him. Fresh tears rushing down his face as he stood up in front of Jeff. "Y-you.....how d-dare you-..." he said yet again falling to his knees. He truly couldn't handle it all, he felt broken.
Then young killer sat there, both hands on his best friends shoulders as he cried agonizing tears that sounded like they hurt. "BEN...." Jeff said softly, trying to get his attention. "J-Jeffy.....why would y-you..." BEN mumbled. "BEN..." He said again.
It wasn't any help at all. He was pretty much falling apart from the inside out, completely ignoring Jeff, continuing to cry loudly into his hands. "BEN!!" Jeff shouted, standing up. The cyber ghost stumbled back, hitting his head on the coffee table behind him.
Despite this, he laid on the floor with his arms to his sides. His face completely red, and eyes shut tight. Jeff started to panic a little. "BEN! Are you ok?!" he asked frantically. He didn't respond, instead, he continued to cry on the floor.
Jeff frantically got down on his knees, pulling BEN out from under the table and holding him close in his arms. "BEN....are you ok?" he asked, tears lightly falling from his eyes as well. "...J-Jeffy...?" BEN said quietly. Jeff tightened his hold on the cyber ghost. "w-what?" he replied. BEN's arms hung heavy by his sides and Jeff held onto him.
"W-were you the one....who was s-sending the...pictures......for real? A-are you S.K?" he asked quietly. Jeff only nodded, more tears falling from his eyes. "...why?" BEN whispered softly.
Jeff broke down crying. "I wanted to see if you cared enough to find me!". Tears soaked their faces as they sat there on the floor. BEN, laying limp, completely motionless in Jeff's arms. "....you idiot...." BEN cried. "Of course I cared enough! The fact that I couldn't find you drove me crazy! I cried more tears in the past few days then I can remember! You gave me panic attack! I lost it! I was broken! Unable to take the frustration, the sadness. I felt lonely!!" BEN cried out loud. "I FELT LONELY JEFFY!!" He wailed. "I thought I lost my best friend! I thought you were gone! You fuckin' idiot!".
BEN wrapped his arms around Jeff as tight at he possibly could at the moment. The quiet house now filled with the agonizing cries of the two boys.
Jeff couldn't find words. Instead, he held his broken friend so close, no one could tear them apart. "BEN....I-I'm so sorry....I didn't..." he hesitated, unable to continue. To know he had caused the cyber ghost so much sadness.
BEN shuddered. "...I......I-I....." he shook violently in the young killer's arms. " I l-love...." he stopped. He couldn't say it. He just couldn't.
Jeff looked down at him. "w-what? BEN, say it" He said softly. BEN only shook his head. "...I...I can't..." He whispered.
"BEN please! You can tell me!" He said a little louder then a whisper.
"No...Jeffy, I cant." He said, looking up into Jeff's eyes. His white face now visibly red, and soaking wet with tears. "please.....t-tell me..."
