He held the gun to his head, hand shaking slightly. But he smiled, his eyes were wide. He looked like the mad, confused child everyone thought he was.
"I could do it...right now," he whispered. Tears fell from his eyes running down into a whirlpool below the couple's feet. It swirled and when Marilyn looked in, he saw no reflection; just a blur of his past, Brian Warner. The whirlpool twisted into a deep red colour. He looked back up to his worrying friend. He was bleeding now, his eyes turning blood shot red, still smiling innocently. Marilyn's eyes widened as Twiggy's closed. Twiggy's laugh echoed around the room, his macabre smile remained in Marilyn's mind.
Marilyn shot up from his nightmare.
'What the fuck' he instantly thought. His dreams would never fail to scare him. He jumped as a light hand touched his arm.

w e a r e a l l h u m a nwhen i woke up this morning, i put my game face on just like everyone else.More Like This
but unlike you, my game face consists of androgynous makeup and a set of tensor bandages.
bandages that i wrap around my body, binding back the parts of me that i find unattractive and not-quite-me the same way people pull on girdles to hide pudgy stomachs.
and just like everyone else, i do all of this so that i can take my daily stresses in stride.
once i'm dressed i go outside.
i go to the timmie's down the street for a medium triple-triple and a chicken salad sandwich.
this is all enjoyed on my bus ride to school.
when i get to school i stand outside with all of the other smokers, boys and girls, and we have our first cigarettes of the morning while waiting for the bell to ring.
sometimes i see my friends in the crowd and we chat, make jokes, talk about the games we've been playing and tell each other how our weekends went.
we talk about what classes we have, and how much of our homework we finished.
