I'm not insane chapter 6

Ray, Bob and Mikey congregated with them facing Savanna and the sketchpad. On the page was an almost perfect likeness of Frank. He was standing there with his hair going down the side of his face and his tattoos clear on his arms. His lip ring glinted in a stream of light coming from an unknown source and shadows swirled around him in the background. They exchanged glances and looked back to Savanna who was now trying as hard as she possibly could to blend in with the wall. They all slowly started to sit down around her. As Frank flopped down he asked “How the fuck…?” but she cut him off with a shrug of her shoulders and her small shy smile. “Practice.” She said plainly. Gerard smiled a smile quite like her own and nodded. The nod caused his hair to flip out of his face revealing his eyes for a split second. He quickly brushed it back onto his face and blushed a bit. A split second was all she saw of the hazel eyes but that was all she needed. She grabbed her book and pencils and started drawing. “ So Savanna…” Bob began but a long, slender finger pressed to his lips and a pertinent “One second, please” cut him off. She finished her drawing and held it away from her to look at it. Ray who was sitting beside her caught her eye and then looked back down at the paper and said “Okay now how the fuck do you take a look at something so complex for like, a split fucking second and then draw it that perfectly!” It was more of an exclamation than a question. Ray looked at her once more “May I?” She was hesitant but she nodded. Ray took the sketchbook, stood up, and walked purposefully to Gerard. Gerard looked at the picture in his hands and turned in surprise to Savanna. “I never thought my eyes were that beautiful before…” Mikey stared at the picture “It’s almost as if they feel nothing… like there is no expression of any emotion…” Savanna nodded. “That’s why I had to draw them.” She turned to Gerard. “Sorry… I’m afraid I don’t do them justice… It’s just a sketch anyway…” The guys sitting around her stared at her in disbelief. Bob was the first to put a voice to his complaint. “How can you say that? This picture is fucking perfect man!” They all laughed and nodded in agreement, all except for Gerard. He just continued to stare at her. Ray and Mikey noticed. Mikey pushed up on his brother’s jaw so that he closed his mouth while he was laughing at the way his brother was staring at Savanna. Ray laughed and said. “Dude I know that this chick is extraordinary but really your probably creeping her out.” Gerard stopped staring and the whole group laughed while Gerard looked playfully mad. He tackled Ray and his brother took the opportunity to climb on top of him. Bob quickly sat on top of the pile and Frank lay down in his lap while Savanna laughed until she thought she was going to die. Soon Ray decided that he was done with being squashed and he bucked upwards which sent all of them flying off him. He got up off the ground and shook his fro as if he wasn’t sure if they had deflated it. Savanna was rolling around on the floor laughing her ass off and she was soon joined by all of the guys who sat there where they had landed laughing like maniacs.
