The Pain You Brought Upon Them (Chapter 7:The Burden)

The night continued as if nothing happened.Chris went and slept on mine and Ricky's bed,so we took the couch.It was a tight fit but it worked.When we woke up Chris was still asleep,so me and Ricky just sat and watched a few movies until he woke up.
"Ricky can I talk to you?" Chris asked
"Sure" he said
They got up and left the room.A few minutes later I heard Ricky screaming so I put my ear up to the door to find out what was going on.
"The hell you mean she can't come?" Ricky asked
"She was just a burden on the last tour" Chris told him
At that very moment I grabbed my phone and jacket and left.I walked for about 20 minutes before my phone started to ring.I just didn't answer it.If I was such a burden it would be best if I just wasn't there.After about 10 phone calls I finally answered it.It was Angelo.
"What the hell do you want?" I asked
"To know why the hell you left.Ricky is over here worrying his ass off and you're wherever you went." he said sounding really angry
"I left because apparently I'm such a burden.So what's the point of me being here if you're just going to throw me away like that."
"What the hell do you mean you're a burden?If it weren't for you Ghost wouldn't have Savannah."
In the background I hear Ricky asking to talk to me
"Hello?" he asked
"Hey" I replied
"When we were talking about a burden we didn't mean you.We meant Angelo's damn yappy dog that never shuts up.Please come home,I love and miss you"
"I'll be there in 20 minutes."
I started walking home and thinking about what he had just said and all of the sudden I started feeling guilty.When I got there the entire band was out front,so was Savannah and this other girl I didn't recognize.Ricky ran up and hugged me and you could tell he had been worried because he was clamy and shaking.
"Hey Violet this is my friend Angela.She came up to visit when we got the call." Savannah explained
"Hey" I said
"What the hell!You had all of us worried sick.Don't you ever do that again" Ricky told me
Chris came and tried to hug me,but Rick slapped his hand away.When we went inside Ghost Savannah Angelo and Angela were sitting together.Angelo and Angela on one couch talking,and Savannah and Ghost on the other.
"Hey Violet.Yeah Angela and I beat you're record of an hour.We made it official in about 16 minutes."
Oh god here we go again.
