Pierre sat on the bathroom floor crying. Why had he been so stupid? He could’ve just messed up his and David’s friendship!
He decided to call David to apologize, so took out his phone and searched for David’s name. He clicked on ‘Call’ and waited at the phone made 5 rings before going to voicemail.
Pierre’s tears increased, and he was so frusturated with himself that he threw his phone really hard at the wall.
He ran a shaky hand through his hair and buried his head in his hands. He heard Jay coming up the stairs.
“Isn’t your brother gay?” A woman’s voice asked.
“My brother’s the one that outed him at school.”
To Pierre’s dismay, they LAUGHED as they went into Jay’s bedroom down the hall.
He needed to talk to somebody. He grabbed his phone and hastily dialed Seb’s number. It went straight to voicemail, and Pierre just managed to choke out the word ‘Seb..’ Before hanging up.
He then found Chuck’s number and waited as it rang. No answer. Angrily, Pierre dialed Jeff’s number. When that went to voicemail, he was so angry that he jumped up and punched the wall, making a nice size hole.
He rested his head on the wall as his thoughts raced. Had David told Chuck, Seb, and Jeff what had almost happened, and now they thought Pierre might try to kiss them? Is that why they weren’t answering him? They were probably all hanging out, Pierre concluded.
Pierre then started thinking that David was gay, and he hadn’t kissed Pierre and ran away because Pierre was ugly. Pierre was fat.
He slid his back along the wall into a sitting position and undid the back of his phone case. He hesitated a minute before grabbing it.
Pierre then did something that he promised Seb, Chuck, and Jeff that he would never do again.
