The Bully

Everyone knows Josh Dun. Everyone knows that in middle school he beat someone up for no reason. Everyone knows to avoid him. Everyone knows you can't talk to him if you do he'll beat you up. But what happens when the shy boy on the top of the honor roll decides that Josh isn't that bad? And what if Tyler is wrong?


6. Sorry


"Yeah, bro?"

"I know you hate Josh, but I need to have a serious conversation about him, with you."

Brendon hesitated. He took a bite of his sandwich.

"Yeah, okay, but, um," he looked straight into Tyler's eyes, "Is this about you being gay for him because if so, I totally called it?"

"Well, not exactly," Tyler took a deep breath, "My mom found out that I was hanging out with him and she says if I keep hanging out with him she'll ground me."

"Well, you wanna prove that he's not a jerk, right?"

"Uh, sure."

"Maybe you should keep, like, going on dates or whatever with him and if your mom tries to ground you, tell you don't care, 'cause like, you're gay for him."

Tyler frowned, "I don't wanna get in trouble, though."

"Well, how do you suggest you break the rules without breaking the rules, Tyler?"

"What if I, like invite him over for dinner and-"

"That sounds like a great plot, but that's not gonna work."

"Yeah, you're right."

Just then a short boy with messy hair walked up to the table. He'd dyed his hair yellow, which seemed like a strange choice, but it looked good.

"Can I, um, sit here?"

Brendon looked like he was going to defend the table and tell Josh to leave but Tyler spoke up before he could.

"Of course!"

Josh smiled and sat next to Tyler.

Brendon looked at Tyler.

"What?" Tyler whispered.

"You need to tell him," Brendon whispered back.

"Tell me what?" Josh whispered.

They both looked at him.

"You guys really seem to think I can't hear, huh?"

Brendon shrugged.

"Anyway, what were you going to tell me?"

Tyler held his head in his hand and faced Josh, sadness in his eyes.

"My mom said she'll ground me if she sees us together again."

Josh looked surprised.

"Oh," he said quietly.

"I don't know what to do," his voice wavered like he was going to cry. Maybe he was.

Nobody at the table looked like they knew what to say.

Tyler didn't want to have to live without Josh and he didn't know if he could.

He had an idea. It was stupid, reckless, and they would probably get caught, but it was an idea.
