The World Will Never Take My Heart part 41

After a few hours I decided it would be a good time to call either Frank or Mikey. I called Mikey first.
He picked up on the second ring. "Hey. Ray or Christa?" He asked still a little sleepy.
"Actually, it's Zane."
"Oh, hey. What's up?"
"I have an idea," I began before diving into Leo, John, Kat, and I becoming Drop-Dead Lovers. How, no matter what he or the others said, we were going to do this.
When I finished talking he or had one thing to say. "I love it, and I'll help you do it."
I was ecstatic to say the least.


Finally! I've spent the past few nights trying to find the perfect photo to edit, but couldn't find anything, until now! What do you think? It's just some simple color changes(The original photo was in complete black and white), but I think it looks awesome. Kind of like a killjoy house wife is how I'd describe it.

I left Leo's house that night with a mission to fulfill. I had to talk to the guys about our band, Drop-Dead Lovers.
When I got home, I found Ray in the living room watching the news.
"Hey, I've got a question." I told him.
"Shoot." He said.
"Leo, John, Kat, and I have named our band. Drop-Dead Lovers."
"Great, but that's not a question."
"I know. We want to create an official album. In memory of Gee."
"Oh," Ray sighed. "I see. You would need our help with that. It's not as easy as it sounds, and you're still in high school. We'll have to talk about this some time."
"Leo, John, and Kat said

"Zane!" I heard Kat call with a tinge of worry. "Where did you go?"
I didn't answer, just continued to cry. I guess she must have heard my sobs, because she was sitting next to me.
She put an arm around me, and cooed "It's okay. He didn't mean to upset you. The lyrics are beautiful, but they have a sad meaning. Just like Skylines And Turnstiles. You know that song. That song started My Chemical Romance, and they started all this. My Chem may be gone, but that gives someone else a chance. What do you think? Do you want to start a new legacy?"
I thought about this for awhile.

Morning came quick, and the flight back to California went even faster.

I had planned to just stay at home for the rest of the day, but a call fro Leo changed that.
"Hey. I know you just got back, but we're jamming tonight. We were wondering if you'd like to come?" Leo told me.
"I'll have to ask, but I don't think it will be a problem. If it is a problem I'll call."
"Cool. Also, if you do come don't forget your lyrics." He reminded me.

After hanging up i went to find Ray or Christa. They happened to both be in the dining room, having coffee.
"Hey. Leo just called.

After the funeral we all went to a diner for a late lunch. I twas the same diner where the guys took me to talk about being adopted.
"That went well." Mikey said.
We all agreed. "I especially like your little speech, Zane." Lindsey told me.
"Thanks. We all hod wonderful things to say." I said.
the majority of our meal was silent. About half way through there was a really long silence. The song Kill All Your Friends somehow made it into my mind. Singing the lyrics: We all want ot party when the funeral ends.
It was slightly ironic because here we are, after Gerard's funeral, but we're not

I didn't sleep at all. I just lied awake all night, thinking. I don't even remember what I was thinking about.
Finally, morning came, and it was time to go. Ray, Frank, Mikey, James, and I were all dressed in flat black suits. Christa, Jamia, Alicia, and Lindsey were all dressed in black dresses, or skirts and blouses. Cherry, Lily, and Bandit were also dressed for the occasion, except for they had white dresses.

The funeral home was decorated perfectly. The flowers were placed in the best possible places. The casket was even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.

"Whatever." I said after staring at her for what seemed like hours, but was barely even a minute. "Congratulations, Mar, you win. you can have her, I don't like her anymore." I turned to walk out of the room, but remembered something. I took a piece of paper out of my pocket, and threw it at Beth. It was the note she left me the night before I left. "Oh, and you're uninvited from the funeral." After that I walked back down to the lobby.

I expected Beth to come running after me. Saying she didn't want any of this, she was sorry, begging for my forgiveness. She didn't though.

"That was quick."

The days before going to New Jersey went surprisingly quick.
Word of Gerard's death spread like wildfire. People from town came to our house to share their condolences. Frank, Mikey, and Lindsey also got many visitors.

The day before the funeral was to be held we boarded a plane. It was Ray, Christa, Frank, Jamia, Cherry, Lily, Mikey, Alicia, Lindsey, Bandit, and I.
James had already flew out to Jersey a few days before, and Gerard's parents still lived in Jersey.

We arrived in New Jersey, checked into our hotel, and got rental cars. My first order of business was to see Beth.
