guys! Okay this is my first attempt to write a multi –chaptered
fic. I will try to update quickly. But I may be quitting my job
Black Water, Cary Ann Hearst and the Borrowed Angels
Oh Black water, black
Reminds me of the
darkness and the glitter in your eyes
Your smile I long to
Oh and I missed you
when I was walking down the street
Down to where the
water meets the sand
Oh at night I dream
that I jump right in
And I sank down to the
Oh I would not be tied
Well as summers
went. This one had sucked. His list of why was a long one –but if
he wanted to tell the truth it was mainly for one reason only. It was the
first summer he'd ever been in love. And it was the first summer he'd
ever been alone. Steven Hyde pretended like he was always alone.
Like a lone wolf, he didn't need anybody. But he'd always had his
friends. But their first summer of adulthood had changed all that.
After Red had his heart attack Eric and Donna had stayed in Point Place.
All plans of a pre-newly wed bungalow were finished. They stayed but the
carefree days of basement dwelling were over. Red's near death had put a
lot into perspective. Laurie and Fez had amazingly stayed together even
though they were the cause of all the chaos. Amazingly Laurie was turning
out not to be completely hell spawn. They had found an apartment across
town and were busy paying bills and everything else that came with making a
life work. Kelso, who would never fully grow up, was still much the
same. He had spent the summer cruising for chicks and trying to beef up
for his future cop career. And Jackie well, there was reason number
one. She had left for New York after graduation to spend the summer with
her Aunt. She was due back any day now but Hyde didn't hold out much
hope. After a summer of meeting rich New York guys he was sure she would
never consider getting back with some no-future cheater like him. So his
summer had sucked. He'd worked and worked and worked some more. He
had a lot of money saved –since he wasn't spending money of things like dates,
or "film", or you know eating. He had pretty much just worked and
slept. Which had got him nothing but a clean shave and loose
clothing. But he was still tired. Tired of being alone.
"Hey man" Eric said as
he came in the basement looking older somehow, a look of concern in his eyes
for his friend.
"Hey" Hyde greeted
"So still missing
Jackie I see" sitting on the couch near Hyde Eric picked up a magazine and
"She still isn't here"
was Hyde's response. He was over pretending like he didn't care about the
girl. The only thing he didn't care about anymore was pretending.
"Yeah she is – Donna
just called me. She should be arriving from the airport any minute now"
"What?! Man why didn't
you say that when you walked in?"
"Well I said it
Hyde jumped up and
started pacing. He wasn't ready for this. A whole summer of wishing
her back but…what was he gonna do now. He really didn't feel like getting
his heart trampled on. He may have changed a little over the summer but
he was still Hyde. He still had defense mechanisms that would always want
to kick in. Run. That is what they said. Get the hell out of
here. And whatever you do dumbass don't show her you care. But he
couldn't. He couldn't let them. They were what had got him in this
situation to start with. And he wasn't going to let them keep him
there. He was going to see if Jackie still loved him. Even a
little. And if she did he was going to do everything in his power to get
