This Is Life (Part 5)

[Nephthys]
Gerard put his arm around me and continued to ask me why I was upset. I couldn't tell him. I told Ray not to tell him, he promised not to say a word but he told me that I had to be the one to tell Gee or he will go back on that promise. “I can't tell you” I said sobbing. I hating crying, it showed I was pathetic. My parents always yelled at me for crying they told me it was a sign of weakness, even when I fell over and grazed my kneed as a small child they still yelled at me. Gee dug his nails into my shoulder begging me to tell him. “Look, I can't help you if you don't tell me.”
“But you'll hate me forever. If I tell you, you'll send me away.” I rested my head on his shoulder and cried some more. “I promise, I won't hate you and I won't send you away. Just tell me. Did those guys hurt you?” he said the last statement with anger. He looked at my hand and untied the knot to check if it was healing. He looked at me with sadness in his eyes he then took notice of my scarf. I looked away. “Why are you wearing that scarf? It's like 75 degrees in here.” I let him untie it but I instantly stood up and run to the other side of the room. “NO YOU CAN'T!” I yelled. “why? WHAT'S HAPPENED?!” I took a deep breath and took off my scarf to show Gee. He froze. He turned around walked outside and slammed the door behind him.

I heard raised voices and then a door slam. I opened the nearest window I could find, it was Gerard he look pissed. “Where you going bro?” I shouted. “I GONNA KILL HIM!” he yelled back. I just laughed and closed the window, but then I realised what he just said. “GEE WAIT!” I climbed out of the window, Gerard was a fast walker and I knew I was never gonna catch up with him if I went out the other way. I jumped out and landed on my feet I ran after him. “Gerard...bro...wait...please” I running out of breath already. Gerard looked too angry to breath. “Would you please tell me what going on?” he ignored me. I stopped and saw him carrying on walking. There were two boys smoking in the corner. Gerard walked up to the tall one grabbed him by the collar and pinned him up against the wall, causing his head to hit the wall, I heard the loud bang from here. It was unlike Gerard to be violent so I went to try and calm him down.

I no what I did was not the way to solve it, but I was so furious. “You are going to pay for why you have done” I spat in his face. “Tim, don't just stand there help me, get this psycho off me” the kid continued to struggle I looked over at the other kid, he took one look at me and then ran but Mikey grabbed him, before he could escape. “thanks bro” I said. “Will you please tell what's going on?” he said, starting to get annoyed. “later.” I said turning to Ed. “now we're gonna have a bit of fun here” I said staring at Ed. “you bastard put me down” he begged. I looked down only to notice his feet were lifted off the ground, I put him back down and made a run for it the first chance he got, Mikey let go of Tim and the two teen ran away from us. “Now can you tell me what's going on?” I gave up and walked back to the bus telling Mikey what had happened.
