I Am Not Afraid To Walk This World Alone.

Riley Hicks is a different type of teenage girl. She wants to fit in, but no one likes her. To get through the day of torture she suffers at school, she listens to the words of her saviours. My Chemical Romance. When listening to them, the school's horror fades away, but that all changes when she gets home. With her mother gone from the fear, Riley is left in her father's abusive hands. But what will happen when she finally escapes, just to find a "stranger" that helps her... *My entry for the Battle Of The Fandoms competition.*

11. Chapter Ten - Singing Together

Ray comes back and picks up his bass. He looks at us. 

 

"What do you wanna play?"

 

"I know a lot of yours, a lot of Fall Out Boy and that is about it." I laugh.

 

"I vote Save Rock And Roll!" Mikey shouts.

 

"Me too!" Gerard laughs.

 

"Riley? You wanna do that?"

 

"Sure, lets do it!"

 

Ray, Mikey, Frank and I all start playing our instruments and Gerard pulls me to the microphone.

 

"You start." He smiles. I shake my head as I focus on playing the strings.

 

"I'll join in."

 

"Fine.

 

"Until your breathing stops, stops, stops,

Until your breathing stops, stops, stops,

Until your-your-your-your, forever, forever."

 

I push Gerard to the side slightly as I join in, putting all my feelings for the last two weeks or so, into the words.

 

"I need more dreams

And less life,

I need that dark

In a little more light."

 

I feel tears start to stream down my face as I start the next line,

 

"I cried tears you'll never see,

So fuck you, you can go cry me an ocean and leave me be!

 

You are what you love

Not who loves you

In a world full of the word yes,

I'm here to scream..."

 

Gerard joins me at the microphone again and I smile through the lyrics,

 

"No, No

Wherever I go, go

Trouble seems to follow

I only plugged in to save rock and roll, rock and roll

 

No, No

Wherever I go, go

Trouble seems to follow

I only plugged in to save rock and roll,"

 

Gerard starts to sing quietly alone again,

 

"Until your breathing stops, stops, stops

Until your breathing stops, stops, stops

Until your-your-your-your, forever, forever."

 

Gerard takes Elton John's parts as though we have agreed I'll have Patrick's and he has Elton's.

 

"Blood brothers in desperation

An oath of silence

For the voice of our generation."

 

I move closer to the mic again and look at Gerard. Our eyes stay connected whilst I sing,

 

"Whoa,

How'd it get to be only me?

Like I'm the last damn kid still kicking

That still believes,

 

I break away from his eyes and he joins my voice, 

 

"I will defend the faith

Going down swinging

I will save the songs

That we can't stop singing

No, No

Wherever I go, go

Trouble seems to follow

I only plugged in to save rock and roll, rock and roll

No, No

Wherever I go, go

Trouble seems to follow

I only plugged in to save rock and roll."

 

When we next start singing, Mikey,  Frank and Ray join in backing us.

 

"Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no."

 

Gerard goes back to singing Elton's part alone,

 

"You are what you love

Not who loves you

In a world full of the word yes

I'm here to scream,"

 

We all begin singing again,

 

"No, No

Wherever I go, go

Trouble seems to follow

I only plugged in to save rock and roll, rock and roll

No, No

Wherever I go, go

Trouble seems to follow

I only plugged in to save rock and roll

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no

Oh no, we won't go

'Cause we don't know how to quit, no, no."

 

We finish playing the final notes and I put the guitar down throwing my arms around Gerard,

 

"That was AMAZING!!! Thank you so much!"

 

He just laughs and hugs me back.

 

"It's totally okay with me! I don't think I've seen you smile like this yet!"

 

"I don't think I've ever smiled like this! My cheeks are starting to hurt!"

 

"Well, I'm glad we are the source of your happiness-"

 

I drop my arms to my sides, which cuts off Gerard. I can hear people talking.

 

"Someone's there." I whisper, pointing to the door. Ray laughs and walks over to it, yanking it open. Which then causes four people to fall over each other and land on the floor at our feet. I step back as I realise who it is. "Oh my God."

 

Ray and Gerard laugh, as Frank and Ray pulling up the men in front of me. As I see their faces fully, I know I'm right in who I thought it was. Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Andy Hurley and Joe Trohman are in front of me.

 

"Hi." Patrick smiles at me.
