Mr. Brightside - Fanfiction Royale, Songfic

In which paranoia and jealousy takes over Keaton's life.

Coming out of my cage and I've been doing just fine. Gotta gotta be down, because I want it all
It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this? It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep, and she's calling a cab while he's having a smoke and she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed and my stomach is sick and it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest now, he takes off her dress now, letting me go

I just can't look its killing me and taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea, Swimming through sick lullabies, Choking on your alibis, But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me, open up my eager eyes
Cause I'm Mr Brightside

Even though it is a Monday morning and I have maths for my first lesson, I can't help but to feel happier than normal as I watch Erin step out from behind her locker, her long, red hair bouncing in curls around her lower back. Her pale pink sundress fits on her amazingly, and I expect for her to come over and say hello to me. After all, we had quite the weekend. 

A girl named Crystal, also known as Erin's best friend, threw a party Friday night. Through a strange turn of events, I had ended up sitting next to the most beautiful girl in the entire school. She, completely wasted and about as hot as the surface of the sun, and me, belligerently drunk and overtly confident, began to kiss. Right in the middle of the party. 

She pulled me up, and I followed her into what I now assume was Crystal's room. At the time, I didn't question it. We didn't have sex, but made out for a very long time, until she felt sick and went to the bathroom. Then she came back and fell asleep in my arms. I assumed it would be the start of a beautiful relationship. 

That is, until this morning. Unlike what I expect, she does not say hello. I walk to her locker. "Uh, hey, Erin." 

Her cheeks turn a bit pink, perhaps out of embarrassment? "Hi, Keaton," she says, her voice distant. I adore everything about her, and carefully take in every aspect of her appearance. She looks slightly uncomfortable for a moment, and then says that she has to go to her class. 

At lunch, I decide that I absolutely have to tell my best friend, Nolan, what happened to me. When I tell him, he laughs. "What? I swear it did. I don't even know how I got invited to that party. But, she's totally into me, Nol. I swear it." 

"Then why is she all over Nick?" he asks, nodding his head in the direction of the table that she sits at. Surely enough, she sits on his lap and is giggling like crazy. I just can't look, it's killing me inside.

Later in the evening, I lay in my bed thinking to myself. How did it end up like this? It was only a kiss

Surely enough, jealousy begins to consume me and take control. I begin to imagine various situations. Of course, as I lay here, falling asleep, she'll be sneaking off with him. Our kiss meant nothing. Is this really the price I have to pay? She kisses me, and I fall in love? 

It was only a kiss to her, Keaton.

I remember the taste of cigarettes on her mouth, and begin to imagine the two of them, sitting on the porch together, smoking and kissing. She puts her hand on his chest, he starts to unzip her dress.. 

I try to assure myself that the kisses had to mean something. Or is it all in my head? It was only a kiss.

She's letting me go, my inner self says. 

How did it end up like this? When did I become Mr. Brightside? I dryly ask myself, as I accept that I was adn am nothing but another boy to Erin.
