|As I was hugging Jet, I looked up at his red face. His teeth clenched his bottom lip. His tears landed in my hair. I hugged him tighter. All of a sudden, he collasped into my arms. He laid his head on my right shoulder and his body felt weightless.|
"Jet? May I ask you something? If you don't mind..."
He gripped my sides and held on to me. He then nudged his head a little to signal that it was all right with him to ask my question.
" Who was your friend? How did he look? What was his name?"
" That was alot of questions for just something." He chuckled a bit and then threw himself onto the couch. He then continued," My friends name was Shay." He pointed at the picture I had saw of Jet and the "Emo" boy when I had first moved in with Jet. " That's Shay, the kid with the jet-black hair and the skull thermal sweater on."
I picked up the picture and studied it. I then layed it back down on the coffee table.
" Were you in love with Shay?" I felt like a jealous clingy biotch, asking that question. Jet just laughed at me and explained how he felt about Shay.
" No... I wasn't homosexual at the moment. Shay was though. He had a HUGE crush on me too. And some other boy who was straight in our class. Poor Shay got the courage to ask the boy out, but the boy rejected him because he was not like Shay. The boy had a girlfriend plus many fan girls so it didn't work out. I knew about Shay's crush on me because he had told me. After he told me about what the boy said to him, I felt so sorry that I let him do something I regret."
" And that was?"
" I let him kiss me... Poor little o' me didn't know much about the kissing subject, but Shay did. He kissed me like a pro! I got frightened and nearly fainted when he lip-locked me. That was when "SHE" walked in. She was Shay's mom. Well, not really a mom. More like a babysister. We both hated her. I was dating her. Her name was Rika" Jet stopped, because I so rudely inturrupted.
" WHAT!? Why!? If you hated her so much."
" Well, Rika hurt Shay. I made a deal with her. I told her that I would date her if she would stop slapping and beating up Shay. But that day our deal was almost over. She caught us kissing and punch Shay out. She then grabbed me by the arm with her nails and drug me across the floor into the living room and called my foster mom. I then went home, my mom scolded me out for going over there again and I was grounded. The next day at school, Shay came with bruises and scars. He was limping. I quickly ran up to him and hugged him. People did stare, yes, but I didn't care! I had to help my best friend. I held his books for him and let him hang all over me as we walked. I couldn't let Rika hurt him like that. So, when she picked him up from school, I yelled at her, making a big scene about what she did to Shay. Shay was still in the school talking to a teacher about some math thing ,so he didn't see me bitch his mother out. That was when I punched her. I didn't mean to!"
I sat there listening to Jet's interesting life's story. He spent all that time with Shay. I just had to find out what killed Shay.
" Jet... How .. How did Shay die?"
Jet's eyes filled up with tears again and his face turned red. He began studdering.
" As--A-As I-I-I st-st-stop-stopped t-talking t-to h-h-his mother. I-I walked back i-in t-the sch-sch-school. Sha-Shay was no-no-nowhere to be found. I che-checked the...the...cafeteria, the-the-the hallways, but i couldn't...I couldn't...I couldn't find him. I then check the males bathroom....There...There were many...Many boys surr...surrounding the bathrooms...I pushed..I pushed everyone.. everyone out of..out of the way. I kicked..and punch though the crowd. There..There .. lie Shay... He..He was covered in blood...His pants were down to his knees...and..and.. The boy who he asked out stoo...stoood...stood...stood over him with a knife and his pants...his pants unzipped. I feel.. I feel to my knees.." Jet put his head in his hands and cried out the words as he continued to speak. "I FEEL TO MY KNEES! I FELL OVER SHAY!!! I WAS TOO LATE! I COULDN'T HELP HIM!! I COULDN'T!!! I THEN GOT UP AND GOT THE KNIFE AND JABBED IT INTO THE BOY'S ARM! HE SCREAMED OUT LOUD! That...That was when the principle came... Along with Shay's mom. She screamed when she seen her son on the floor dead. I looked up at both of them, Rika and the Principle. They fratically asked question about what had happened. Dumb Adults. Shay was dead. AND THAT BOY DID IT! THAT DA.MN KID! They took me and the boy to the police office. As for Shay, they wrapped him up and took him away. Who knows where. The police asked us many questions. They asked me if I killed him. Of course, I awnsered no. I wouldn't kill my friend! I LOVED HIM! I HAD NO INTENTION OF KILLING SOMEONE I LOVED! I told the police that the boy did it. I told them the whole story. About me slapping Rika and how Shay was gay and how Rika abused Shay. They believed me,Thank God, and that boy was sent to Juvi and Rika was put in rehab. I was sent back home with my foster mom in which I lived a normal life then on. They had held a funeral for Shay, but I didn't go. Rika was going to be there and I didn't want to go. So now I visit him at his grave." Jet stopped and layed down on the couch. He told me he was going to take a nap. Just like that he quickly fell asleep.
I snuck out of the apartment at 6:00 PM. I went to buy some thing that we needed. I had 10 dollars. It wasn't much in Japan but it would work. I bought Ramen noodles, flowers, and some milk. I then set up a dinner for Jet and I. Jet awoke from the smell of the ramen. He asked me why I had done all this and I simply replied, " I made you explain that painfull story. This is the least I could do." I then smiled at Jet and we had dinner. We didn't talk much. We just stared at our bowls and ate. I didn't feel like laying with Jet so I grabbed a blanket from the hallway closet and went to bed on the couch.
The next morning, Jet was awake before me. He was drinking hot cocoa and reading a video game magazine. I grabbed an orange from the fridge and told Jet goodbye. He then stopped me before I walked out the door.
" Be careful today, Sha--Kai."
He was about to call me Shay... What's wrong with him? Did he know something I didn't. Nah, He was just thinking to much about Shay. Oh well, I'm just gonna go to school.
