30. Liam's Story Part 12

We gave up looking, she probably went home. It was Saturday and I was sitting in my room with Seth, well he was sitting, my head was on his lap. Out of the silence Seth finally spoke.

"Babe, you don't have to tell me but how did you know you were gay?", this was going to be one of those serious moments in a relationship. Sighing I sat up and faced him in the eyes.

"Well there was Devin", I whispered.

"Who's Devin? Was he your boyfriend?", Seth asked, his voice a little sad. I gulped looking down at my hands. I guess I had to tell him.

"You see, before I moved here there was an accident. Devin killed himself, but before that had  happened my life seemed decent. My family wasn't the best kind, truthly my father killed my brother and had constant affairs on my poor mum. At school I was bullied but at school I was happy. My friends were great and everything until the new guy came - Devin.

Devin was really smart and cute, for some reason that had drawn me to him. Believe it or not at the time I was actually good with people. Anyways I told my friend Katie how I thought he was cute and then it all changed, she spread lies and rumours. I lost my friends and when everything seemed to hit the bottom I fell in love.

Devin saved me from the bullying and welcomed me into his group of friend, after time we started dating and life seemed fine. But after a while Devin was bullied really bad until he broke. I got a text and this feeling ripped my heart. I was too late, Devin was gone and before I knew it I was in a new town and school. Then I met you and everything changed, I fell in love once more.

I will always love Devin, he is gone but still in my heart. You are here and also in my heart forever", I looked up at Seth who was thinking.

"You love me?", he asked slowly trying to figure out the words I had just said. Well there was no going back.

"Yes I love you Seth", I replied honestly. His lips fell onto mines as my heart started dancing and time seemed to stop, this wasn't like before, it was more demanding.

"I love you too"

 

********

Sunday came by and nothing happened but Monday everything changed once more.

We were standing inside school, something seemed thicker in the air than normal. Willow came up to us with a sullen look on her face.

"Willow what happened that night?", I asked her wanting to know. What? You can't blame me for being curious!

"I don't know just drop it", she replied stiff shuffling her feet about. Something was really off, that cold feeling was setting heavily on my chest.

"Okay", I whispered putting my hands up in defeat. Willow seemed to tense up even more and started taking deep breathes. Footsteps fell behind me causing me to turn around only to meet the glares of - you guessed it - populars.

"Well if it isn't gaylow", one of  the blonde girls snickered as Mathew pushed Willow to the ground. She didn't fight it anymore, she just stayed there looking sad at the faces of each person.

The feeling clawed more into my heart.

 

"Leave my girl alone", Taila's voice shouted from the end of the corridor.  She seemed like a tiger ready to pounce on anyone that got in her way as she slowly stalked her way over to our little commotion.

Well if it isn't Miss Popular slut herself", the same blonde bimbo laughed shoving Taila down to the ground as well. "I thought we told you Taila, you aren't one of us. You are disgusting and now this little stunt? Well why not become a outcast like this loser. Wasn't it you that said she deserved to die?" ,she continued.

From the corner of my eyes I saw Willow flinch a little as she stood up. The next thing she did was grabbed the girls hair and slam her into a wall.

"You are such a fucking bitch",Willow spat as she clung tighter to the girl.

"Let go of me you loser that hurts!", the girl screamed. That seemed to do it, something shifted in the air and Willow was Willow no more.

"You think this hurts? Try being put through this everyday of your life! Try being treated badly because you don't fit in", she threw the girl to the ground and ripped off her hoodie revealing running blood covering her old scars and newer ones.

"You have no idea what I go through! I have been abused as long as I can remember, I have been bullied at this place because I don't fit into your pathetic idea of perfect. I have been raped by some of your so called friends, I have been used and broken. You have no idea of pain you pathetic slut", Willow cried out before running past everyone.

The feeling was at full light now.... Devin..... Willow.....

I ran after her, the guys and Taila not far behind me. My legs were burning from the fire I ran but I didn't stop until I came to a familiar house and burst through the door.

"Willow?!", I yelled, the others looking around.

Devin....Willow.....

A voice called us into a room and I fell to the ground.

Devin.....Willow..... dead.

 

*****

The next day a service was placed at school but I was too far away to know. It was too late, everything was gone. See life is a circle, you go round once then it happens again. You fall in love, make amazing friends, survive a journey then someone you love leaves. I am stuck on a repeat no one, nothing can stop it. Willow left the world, making it darker and empty.

After a long buzz of farewells and regrets it made no difference, Willow was gone, the girl who had changed our lives had left us taking a part of us with her.

This is why life had been a journey, it brought out the truth of those who had sought to hide. But to find the truth there was a price, Willow.
