A/N- I thought that I had stopped the Motley Series cause I was stuck on "Afraid", but I was listening to the cd again this morning and this story popped in my head. It might be a little confusing and I'm sorry, I just wanted to get it out of my harddrive. Origionally it was a Raven, Shannon story, but I couldn't finish it like that. Also, thanks to Jasmine for sending the RIGHT lyrics! LoL

Title: Don't Go Away Mad

Author: Hearts Desire

As soon as I gothome from the airport, I knew that something was wrong. I didn't know if it was serious or not, but I knew I had to head over to your house. I had a feeling, like you just needed me with you. I drove as fast as I could over to your house, not even waiting for the engine to shut off the car fully before getting out.

I ran as fast as I could without falling on the house and searched through my pockets for your house key. I nearly dropped my keyring a dozen times before I got the door open. As soon as the door was open, I heard the stereo blaring loudly. It even hurt my ears, but I knew the song immediately.

We could sail away

Or catch a freight train

Or a rocketship

Into outer space

Nothin' left to do

Too many things were said

To ever make it feel

Like yesterday did

Seasons must change

Separate paths - separate ways

If we blame it on anything

Let's blame it on the rain

I knew it all along

I'd have to write this song

Too young to fall in love

Guess we knew it all along

That's alright, that's Okay

We were walkin' through some youth

Smilin' through some pain

That's alright, that's Okay

Let's turn the page

My friends called today

Down from L.A.

They were shooting pool all night

Sleeping half the day

They said I could crash

If I could find my own way

I told them you were leaving

On a bus to go away

That's alright, that's Okay

We were two kids in love

Trying to find our way

That's alright, that's Okay

Held our dreams in our hands

Let our minds run away

That's alright, that's Okay

We were walkin' through some youth

Smilin' through some pain

That's alright, let's turn the page

And remember what I say girl

And it goes this way:

Girl, don't go away mad

Girl, just go away!

I said girl, don't go away mad,

Girl, just go away.

Shit, yours and Matt's song. SOmething must have happened between you two. I finally snapped out of my trance-like stance and headed to your room. I could hear crashing behind the door, so I didn't hesitate and just went in. Immediately I had to duck otherwise I would have been pelted in the head with a thick book.

Geez. The entire room wa a mess. You were pulling things off the walls, tearing apart your bed, throwing books and videos, and anything you could get your hands on.

"Shannon! Shannon, stop!"

Then, you stopped and looked up immediately. Your breathing was laboured and you face was tearstained with your hair sticking to it. A thin trail os blood was running from your mouth and you wiped it with the back of your hand.


"Yeah, Shann. It's me."

You stumbled forward whether you meant to or not and landed in my arms. I slowly sat down so we were sitting against the bed. You were still panting and you rested your head against my shoulder, the hot tears soaking the top of my shirt. I slowly rubbed your shoulder until your sobs had turned to hiccups.

"Are you okay, Shannon?"

"Why, Jeff?" you sniffled.

"Why what?"

"Why did it have to be me? Why couldn't it have been someone else?"

"What do you mean?"

"Why did I have to fall in love with Matt? Why not-why me?"

"What happened, Shann?"

I didn't expect you to reply since it too so long for you to say something. And when you did you were so quiet that I almost didn't hear you.

"Matt doesn't love me anymore."

"Yes he does, Shannon. he loves-"

"No! No he doesn't! He just left me! He left me!"

I had to jump at how harsh your voice was. I never thought you and Matt would break up. You guys have been together for years. Since you were in 11th grade, even.

"When, Shannon? Did he say why?"

"Just earlier. He told me he was in love with Shane. What did I do wrong, jeff?"

"Shannon, you didn't do anything wrong."

"Then why did he leave?"

I pulled you closer. You sounded so pitiful, like a lost child. I just had to have you as close as possible to me. I'd never heard you so upset.

"I-I don;'t know. Maybe Matt just thinks he needs to get out an experience more since you guys have been together so long. I really don't know."

"But ... I thought he loved me."

"He does love you, Shannon. It just might not be the same love you're thinking. Maybe he just needs to think for a little. He might even be back by tonight."

You took a deep, shuddering breath and rested your head on my chest.

"Thanks, Jeff."

"No problem. Why don't you go get cleaned up and I'll start putting things away." I suggested.

You nodded slowly, placing a small kiss on my collarbone and went into the bathroom. I meant to get to work helping clean, but my mind was in another place. This wasn't the first time this had happened. Matt always came back to you and you'd forgive him and once more, I'd only be there for support. It would never change.

But I love you so much that I can't be angry. I rather you be happy than me.
