Desperate Measures by HugaDuck Desperate Measures by HugaDuck
Andy's phone was ringing... It didn't do that very often. Normally he was the one calling everyone else, not the other way around... Except in one case.
Andy sighed with misery as the number on the screen confirmed his worst fears. He'd erased him from his contact list, but he still knew the number by heart. Martin. His ex-boyfriend from hell. Grunting, he leaned back against his wall and flipped the phone open, holding it up to his ear. He wasn't doing anything in particular; just sitting on his floor and staring despondently off into space, but he was still perturbed at being interrupted in the middle of his thoughts. He'd make it quick, cut Martin off before Andy even had the chance to hang up in the middle of one of his rants.
"Hello?" he answered in his best monotone, dry voice.
The reply almost overlapped with Andy's greeting. "Andrew!!" the voice on the other end shouted, with the excitement of a little girl who was going to Disney World. "I'm SO glad you answered, I was freaked out that you weren't going to!"
"I almost didn't," Andy growled in reply. "What the hell is with you? You've called me 11 times this month.. 11 TIMES, MARTIN! That's a lot given the fact that I told you I never wanted to talk to you ever again."
"Yeah, I know, but listen," Martin continued, his voice showing that he had completely ignored what Andy had said.
"No! I'm done listening to you!" Andy abruptly cut him off. "I know what you're going to say, you say it every freaking time: 'Andrew, why don't you call me anymore?' 'Andrew, why don't you come to tomorrow's club meeting?' 'Andrew, are you done with your little phase and ready to hang out with your real supportive friends now?' 'Andrew, why do you always ignore me, I miss talking to you soooo much!'" Andy went on, mocking Martin, and making sure to add a whine in his voice whenever he said his name. "And by the way, for the 100th time, it's ANDY to you, okay?! NOT 'Andrew!'"
"Yeahyeahyeah, but this time it's different!" Martin managed to squeeze in.
Andy sighed loudly and rolled his eyes. "That's what you say EVERY TIME!" At this point, Andy started to get flustered, his voice stammering a bit as he searched for his words, ready to deliver his own speech he commonly had to fire back at Martin. "You are sooo desperate to have me back aren't you? You just need someone to push around again other than all your little club members! Well Martin, like I've already told you several times, I have moved on! I have new friends, REAL friends! I am a changed person from freshman year! I've got a new perspective on life and myself, and the last thing I need is you dragging me down all the time, telling me who I am and directing my life!"
"Andrew, will you just shut up for a second?!"
"No!! I told you! I'm done! I don't know why you think you have to call me and bombard me in my house with all of your crap, when you know it's never going to work! I may not be entirely stable right now, but at least I have a little more dignity and confidence that I didn't have when I let you walk all over me! And if you have any consideration for my personal sanity in you, you will stop calling me all th-"
"ANDREW!!" Martin suddenly shouted at the top of his lungs, running over Andy's voice. "I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE ASSIGNMENT FOR HEMSWORHT'S CLASS IS!!"
"........Oh."
"Yeah."


-------------------

Just randomly got this idea in my head a few days ago...

Yay for crappy art and an actual drawing of Martin!! 8D
he's a pretty pivotal character in Andy's story line and life in general. I just don't like him at all, so I don't really draw him. XDD He's just a jerk and causes a bunch of crap for everyone...


Andy, Martin- :iconpicklejelloz:

I HATE doing furniture... or inanimate objects in general. It's so hard for me to make a decent looking table. XP
