This Is Life (Part 6)

[Ray]
I finally managed to pull myself away from my x-box to make a coffee. I walked into the kitchen area I saw Nephthys in the corner of the room covering her neck she looked up at me, her eyes were red. I walked up to her. “So did you tell him” she nodded, and looked like she was trying to hold back her tears she took a deep breath and said “he didn't take it very well”. Well I could see that, hence the reason why he was gone. “He'll be back soon don't worry. Do want a tea or coffee” I asked. She shook her head, and lowered her head slowly into her thighs. "I'm a terrible person" I heard her say. I ignored what she said and got up to make my drink until there was a knock at the door. “See, that's probably Gerard now. THE DOORS OPEN YOU IDIOT!” I shouted. The knock came again. “Look Gerard, I'm not playing that stupid game with you again, if you want to come in open the door yourself.” the door opened. “Now was that so difficult?” I asked. But there was no answer. “I'm not falling for it Gee. You played that trick on me way too many times.” I felt a pair of hands grab me and another pair grab my head they pulled to one side and stuck a needle into my neck, all I can remember was my vision fading. “I'm sorry” I heard a sweet voice say. “Nephthys, why? How could you...?”, I said before closing my eyes compleatly.

“For god sake Mikey that IS the truth.” for the fifth time of telling the story Mikey still didn't believe me. We came up to the bus, I opened it. “Where back.” I said. There was no reply. I heard a noise from where bunks were. I walked up to them no one was there, I was about to sit on my bed until a hand came from under the bed and grabbed my leg. “Gerard look out!” Mikey shouted. I ran out of the room, the person under covers came out it was Frank, pissing himself with laughter. “Oh my god, I would have given anything to have seen your face” Frank said laughing out every word. Mikey began to laugh too. “FFS FRANK! That's the third time this week” I yelled. “yeah, and it still scares you...” before Frank could boast about it I interrupted him and asked “where are the others?” he shrugged his shoulders. “When I woke up everyone was gone, I thought you guys went to the pub so I stayed here and waited” he said. “in my bed” I said giving him evils. He turned bright red and the burst out laughing. “How much have you had to drink?” Mikey asked picking up the empty bottles. “those aren't mine, well not all of them anyway” he said. “That didn't answer my question” Mikey said raising an eyebrow. “Oh alright fine I did drink them all. But they are not all from tonight.” me and Mikey looked at him. He sighed. “Fine, they are”. He said looking ashamed. “Frank, your suppose to be cutting down”. Mikey said calmly. “I no I no.” I heard him mumble. “So... where did you say the others where?” I asked taking a seat next to Frank. “I dunno, like I said they were gone when I woke up”. I turned to look at Mikey, who began to look worried. “This isn't like Ray at all, he never goes out on his own, at least not without telling someone” we all looked at out phones. Nothing. Not a call or text or even a note...wait there was a piece of paper on the kitchen table. But I don't think anyone noticed. Mikey sat on his bed and said “Don't worry he'll be back soon...I'm sure of it.” Frank got up I think he's had enough sleep, he went to the back of the bus to go the internet. I went into the bathroom and read the note. As soon as I read what was on the paper it slipped through my hands and slowly descended to the floor. I sank my head into my hands. What was I going to do?
