28. Liam's Story Part 10

The guys and I were skateboarding around the car park in the early hours of the morning before school, just due to the wonderful life of waking up early. Just then a limping red haired girl went by looking down to the ground. Why was she limping?

"Willow! Hey", I scream loud enough so she can hear me. I ran up to her and was given a small smile, to be honest I knew it was fake. If only I had seen the signs....

"Are you okay?", Evan asked her his gaze searching her eyes. She just nodded and once again a forced smile came to play on her pale lips. The guys may not have noticed but I for one knew something was up but it seemed like she wanted us to drop it.

Blake coughed causing us to turn to him, he walked over to Willow with a softer gaze than he would usually wear. Could that mean Blake and Willow?

"Do you want to try?", Blake asked gesturing to his skateboard. I was watching the scene unfold really closely as they started to teach Willow how to skateboard. Every now and then Blake would touch her, ever so lightly as if it was a mistake but still he would do it so casually that none of the guys noticed.

This went on for half an hour, in that short time she had become amazing already. With some practice it looked like she would be as good as Evan himself. The bell rang breaking up our fun, everyone went their seperate ways and Blake went with Willow.

"Now class it's time for singing", my music teacher called out. Oh boy... her eyes landed on me and beckoned me to the front of the classroom. It was the first time I sang in front of the class, not the last though.

Sighing I grabbed an acoustic and started strumming a little. "Aww, is the gay boy going to sing with his little pretty voice?", some random guy cooed causing everyone to laugh, even the teacher let out a chuckle.

Shaking my head I focused on the music and began to sing;


Our time is ending, I feel it's only just begun
And I'm frustrated, I can't believe you're not the one
My ears are bleeding, her voice resides inside my head
And now I'm choking, release this noose around my neck!

The laughter fell silent as their eyes landed on me, I knew I could sing but seriously they were all acting as if I was some famous person.

Will I just fall to pieces?
Or am I all right?
To iron out my creases, you must lacerate me 'til they're gone

These are my final words to you
I know you're listening, can you hear me
The time has come to say goodbye
These are my final words, to you

I couldn't help but loose myself to the music, my fingers strummed in time with my voice as I lost myself to my own thoughts not really paying attention to anyone around me. I always got like that when I was singing or playing.

The clock is ticking, my heart is bursting through my chest,
And now I'm crying, the tears are pouring off my face,
The chair is creaking,

Her voice resides inside my head,
And now it's over,
You put this noose around my neck

Will I just fall to pieces?
Or am I all right?
To iron out my creases, you must lacerate me 'til they're gone

This song was discribing my life, they didn't understand that but I did. Life was getting harder and everything was turning to ashes around me.

These are my final words to you
I know you're listening, can you hear me
The time has come to say goodbye
These are my final words, to you

Heaven, where is my angel?
I need her now, holding me
Heaven, where is my angel?
I need her now, holding me tonight

Now!

Will I just fall to pieces?
Or am I all right?
To iron out my creases, you must lacerate me 'til they're gone

These are my final words to you
I know you're listening, can you hear me
The time has come to say goodbye
These are my final words, to you

I finished and put down the guitar, everyone was still looking at me like they had seen a miracle. It was actually bugging me.

"Um do you mind? It's rude to stare people", I snap causing them to turn back around. Finally!

The rest of the class just buzzed by until the next lesson where I slept and finally lunch came. The beautiful time of school where I didn't have to learn anything! Smiling to myself I walked into the lunch hall and over to the table we claimed as ours.

Willow joined about five minutes later with a bottle of water. I was about to ask her where her lunch was when Lloyd did it for me.

 

"Where's your lunch Willow?", Lloyd asked with his mouth full of food. That boy had no manners what so ever! No one wants to see what you are eating.

"Not hungry", she shrugged and fell silent. We just nodded and went back to eating, I really wanted to ask about the other night but it was too risky.

We finished then stood up dragging Willow with us and outside to the back of the school where we had ramps set up for skate boarding and biking. Blake pulled her off into the corner and started speaking to her in a hushed voice.

I walked over to Seth and jumped on his back. "Hey do you think Blake likes Willow?", he asked as I leaned down and kissed him on the cheek.

"It seems like it doesn't it? This is the first time I have seen him be so, well normal", I laughed and hopped down from Seth's back and onto my board. Soon Willow and Blake returned and for the rest of lunch we just messed around until the bell went for us to go back inside.

*******

I was sitting in class staring at the wall when a horrid feeling came to my gut. Willow.... Willow is in danger... I bolted out the class to get the others....
