The World Will Never Take My Heart part 33

After that it was mostly flower arrangements, tomb stones, ceremonies, and caskets. None of this really concerned me, but I stuck around anyway.
Gerard's funeral was going to be nice. Simple black and white carnations, an elegant headstone with the words, "Your memory will carry on.". An open-casket ceremony where anyone could say words about Gerard, but no church service. The casket was going to be absolutely beautiful. Black ebony wood, with a rose pattern that was inlaid with white gold.

With everything done, I had one question.
"I was thinking since we'll be back in Jersey, maybe I could see Beth." I said. "Only if it's okay with you guys though."
"Yeah, that would be fine. Beth was such a sweet girl." Mikey said. "If you'd like you can invite her to the funeral ceremonies."
"Thanks Mikey, you're amazing." i told him.

When we got back home, I immediately called the orphanage to talk to Beth. After getting past Mrs. Ann over the phone, she finally let Beth on.

The next morning came slowly. We were all going to meet at Lindsey's house, but we quickly changed that to Mikey's house.
Everyone looked very tired. I'm sure non of us were able to sleep. Each of us consumed with what our futures will become.
"I called my mom last night to tell her the news." Mikey said after gulping down half a cup of coffee. "She didn't take it too well, but she did have one request. The funeral is to be held in Jersey, so that's where it's going to be."
"As it should be." Frank agreed.
"So, what else needs to be decided?" Ray asked.
"A lot. Since Gerard didn't have anything for his funeral planned out yet, we have a lot ot decide. Also, there wasn't much in his will.' Mikey explained.
"I think all his possessions should be sorted through by his, you, and me." Lindsey suggested.
"Agreed." Mikey said.
"So, I guess that just leaves the funeral plans." Frank said.

Lindsey immediately wen to tears. Mikey comforted her in a hug even though he himself was crying.
I, too, broke down. To think I was the last person to see, and talk to him. Ray, Christa, and Frank were trying to comfort me, but I didn't want it. I brushed them off, and crossed to the other side of the room for emphasis. After that they left me alone.

Ten minutes or so went by. Lindsey and Mikey still comforting each other. The others not really sure what to do, but obviously sad.
Finally Frank spoke up. "So, where do we go from here?"
Everyone just kind of stared at him. No one had an answer though.
"It's obvious the band is done. I don't like that conclusion, but it's the truth. Without one of us, we can't go on." Frank continued.
"He's right." Mikey chimed in. "My Chemical Romance is dead. Our name will carry on though. It's what my brother would have wanted."

When we arrived at the hospital Gerard was immediately rushed to an emergency room. In the ambulance they manage to restart his heart with an AED, but he was still unconscious, and things weren't looking good either.
I was going to get A-rays, but first they asked me some questions. My name, age, stuff like that. They wanted know exactly what happened, but I didn't know all the details. Lastly they asked who they should call for me. I told them I wan't to call y parents, so they let me use the hospital phone.

Ray picked up. "Hello?"
"Hey it's Zane." I said.
"Oh, hey what's going on?"
"Um, well. I'm at the hospital."
"What?Why? What happened?" He asked frantically.
"We were in a car crash. I'm fine, but Gerard," I started.
Ray cut me off. "Oh, thank God! Wait. What about Gee?
"HE's not well. Just get over here. Tell Frank, Mikey, and Lindsey to come too." I told him what hospital we were at before hanging up.

"Gee!" i shouted. No response. "Gerard." i said still quite loud.
People were getting out of their cars, and rushing to where I am.
"Are you okay?" someone, a girl, asked me frantically. Someone behind her was on their phone, probably(hopefully) calling 911.
I hadn't noticed before, but my arm was killing me. "My arm." I said trying to lift it. That caused me to flinch in pain.
"Okay. Don't move. You were shouting someones name. Who?" She asked.
"My friend, he was driving.
"Well, emergency personnel are on their way. Just hold tight."

It felt like hours until the firetrucks, police cars, and ambulances came. Firemen had to cut Gerard out of what remained of the car. I was seated in the back of the ambulance where they examined it, and wrapped it in a makeshift sling. Finally, they rushed Gerard into the ambulance on a stretcher.
Immediately they hooked him up to some machines. I just sat there, and stared at him. He didn't even look human.

Frank. Version: Vampire

I edited this photo of Frank to make it more vampire looking. Tell me what you think I'm not much for edits, but I dabble.

They practiced a few more songs before packing it in. I rode back home on my bike.

"I'm home." I yelled as I walked into the house from the garage.
"We're in the dining room" Christa yelled back.
"Hey, mom and dad." I greeted them as I walked into the dining room. "Oh, hey Gee, I didn't know you were coming over. What's the occasion?"
"No occasion, but I have a surprise for you. A late birthday gift if you will." Gerard answered.
"Okay then. Where is it?"
"Not here. It's at the studio, so we should get going so we can get there, and back here before it gets too late.

"So, can I have any hints about what it is?" I asked Gerard on the way to the studio.
"Well, it has to do with music." He chuckled without taking his eyes off the road.
"Can I have a little bit more of a hint then just that?"
"Just think about it."
I sighed in defeat, and sat back to think. Soon enough I'd zoned out completely.

"Um, well..." I began.
"Spit it out." Kat told me.
"Lyrics I wrote for this song. Sorry I didn't tell you. I have lyrics for some of your other songs too that I wrote." I explained in a jumble.
"Does anyone else know?" Leo asked.
"No. I told no one, not even Ray, Frank, Gerard, Mikey, or their wives." They all stared at me awhile.
"Alright," Leo said." Lay it out for us then. Let's see what you got. From the top guys."
They started Broken Pieces again, but this time I stood at the mic. After Kat started on the drums, I started singing.

"Falling in place
These tragities
And fails.
Unlike my mind
My bodies
Still whole."

First verse done, I paused before the chorus.

"Broken Pieces.
We've become.
No longer one.
Please come home."

The rest of the song was a blur to me. I know they kept playing, and I kept singing, but I just lost my sense of reality.
"That was sick!" Leo exclamation brought me back to reality.
Everyone else agreed, I was given high fives.

I was the last to arrive at Leo's place. They were all outside waiting for me.
"Finally. Man, why does it take you so long to get here?" Leo complained.
"Shut up. You know I don't live in town."
"C'mon now. Are you guys ready to rock?" Kat said impatiently.
"Always." Leo, John, and I all responded simultaneously.

We went down to the basement, and they all took their places with their instruments.
"Is that a new mic?" I asked.
"Not exactly new. My father got it from a friend who didn't need it anymore. Still works good though." Leo said.
"What are you going to use it for? You don't have a vocalist."
"We don't have a band name yet either, but that's not stopping us." John said.
"Yeah, yeah, yeah. Just start playing."
"Alright. Let's start with Broken Pieces." Leo told Kat and John. "1,2,3!" He skipped 4 and started playing. John chimed in with his bass, and then Kat began pounding on her drums.

Revelation through Boredom

Being bored, and being me, I decided to look up facts about all of MCRs albums. I started in the beginning with Bullets of course. The first thing I see is the release date. July 23rd 2002. Funny thing, my birthday is July 23rd. Their first album came out on my 6th birthday. Now, I wasn't a fan back then, it would be 8 years until I became a fan, but it's still cool to me. I guess I'll add to the list of cool things about my birthday. What are some cool things that happened on your birthday throughout history?
