CHAPTER THIRTEEN

LIFE'S A BITCH AND THEN WE DIE

Of course it had been a bad decision to let Relena play with us.

But I was still on my 'I brought down Relena' high and decided to be the better person.

Being the better person blows.

Morons.

Nice guys do finish last.

OoOoOo

"Truth or Dare?" Blaise asked Para Para somberly.


She called last night still waiting for a reply.
This static contact is pulling us apart.
Please hang on tight,
I'll see you through the night.

"Er…dare." She replied.

There was a brief discussion as to what Para Para should do as her dare, during which Relena was mysteriously pushed out of the circle.

"Alright, I dare you to sneak into Mr. Black's house and steal his underwear."

"What?" Para asked incredulously.

"You heard me."

"I don't even know where he lives."

"Ami is printing out directions as we speak." Blaise said obtrusively.

"Oh." She said quietly.

She was soon pushed out of the house with directions to return only when she had said item.

"Alright your turn, Peacecrap." Duo said boredly.

"It's Peacecraft, and I pick Dare." Relena said contemptuously tossing her mane of dirty blonde hair over her shoulder.

I smiled evilly, "I dare you to pick truth!" I exclaimed loudly.

Relena rolled her eyes, "Fine, whatever."

Goodbye girl, because I'm lonely
Goodbye girl, it isn't over
Goodbye girl, because it's only love
Goodbye girl, you know you want me
Goodbye girl, yes I'm a loser
Goodbye girl, you know it's only love

"How many hand jobs and or blowjobs have you given?" I asked loudly.

"Can I have another question?" she asked pathetically.

"How many dudes have you slept with?" I asked cheerfully.

"15." She said quietly.

"To which question?" I asked.

"The first one."

The room was filled once again with loud hooting and cat calls.

"Seamus, Truth or Dare?" Duo asked pointing the bottle at said Irishman accusingly.

You are the latest contender
You are the one to remember
You are the villain who sends her
Light or dark, fantastic passion
I know that you will surrender
I know that you will surrender
I want this fantastic passion
We'll have fantastic passion

Relena spoke before anyone else could, "I dare you to play 7 Minutes In Heaven with the next girl the bottle lands on."

Then she spun the bottle.

"Lucky me, let's go Finnegan." Relena chirped.

I felt my throat close up.

Swim through these waters
My lungs collapse as I'm gasping for air
I'll breathe you in (and I'll breathe you in)
You are my oxygen alone

"No way, I want another dare." He insisted stubbornly.

"Rotten luck." Heero whispered.

"Sorry, no do overs, we agreed on that after my turn, remember?" she asked smugly.

Why had we decided that?

Seamus should be making out with Duo or something, I thought manically, forgetting the no same sex rule.

Through arteries untold, your skin is pale, my body's cold
Way down, deep down in my lungs
I can hear our sweet decay

Seamus kept a stony face as Relena dragged him to the coat closet at the back of the room.

He's actually doing it!

No! NO!

So spill my blood (SO SPILL MY BLOOD)
Midnight skies turn scarlet red
Say "so long," say "goodnight," and just hold out your hand
To catch me if I fall into the night
Say "so long," say "goodnight," and just hold out your hand
To catch me if I fall

Seamus did not want to go in a closet with Relena for seven minutes, he didn't even want to be sharing the same air with her for seven minutes, but there was a five-round warning so he couldn't get out without spending his allotted time in the closet with her.

Ugh, the words even sounded bad.

I was freaking out.

But I didn't have a reason to be freaking out because Seamus and I weren't "dating."

I hate high school.

I despise it with the fiery venom of a thousand super nova suns.

Everyone and everything feels like it slips away
Way down deep down in my lungs, I can hear you as you fade

Once they got to the closet, Relena began moaning, "What the fuck are you doing?" Seamus asked incredulously.

"Faking." She replied before resuming her moaning, she was hitting the wall with her shoe as well.

"Stop it you freaking dumb whore!"

"Um, how about no?"

So spill my blood (SO SPILL MY BLOOD)
Midnight skies turn scarlet red
Say "so long," say "goodnight," and just hold out your hand
To catch me if I fall into the night
Say "so long," say "goodnight," and just hold out your hand
To catch me if I fall

This was too much; I stormed out of the room, nearly bowling over Para Para as she returned with Mr. Black's underwear.

"What did I miss?" she asked quizzically as Relena stepped out of the closet.

OoOoOo

It had happened again.

I had opened myself up just so I could get hurt again.

This time I wasn't going to an extreme, I was just going to mope like a normal person does when the person they love plays 7 Minutes In Heaven with their worst enemy.

So ice cream was a definite.

Triple Chocolate Fudge or Rocky Road?

Decisions. Decisions.

OoOoOo

Seamus frowned as he stared at his cell phone.

NO MESSAGES.

NO VOICE MAIL.

She was ignoring him.

Again.

Irritatedly he pushed his lunch tray aside and ran a hand through his disheveled hair, what was he supposed to do now?

He barely registered as Harry plopped down in the seat across from him, "Hey, Seamus."

"Harry." He returned despondently.

"You. Look. Like. Shit." Harry informed him seriously.

"Thanks you're just too kind, mate." Seamus replied pleasantly.

"So, what's you're deal now?" Harry asked, digging into his pudding.

"What do you mean?"

"I mean, what's the problem now? It seems that you can never be happy for more than a week."

"Mina is ignoring me."

"I wonder why." Harry said sarcastically.

"You're such a great help Harry, what would I ever do without you?"

"Crawl under a rock and die?"

"That sounds appealing right now."

"You should apologize." Harry said seriously.

"I didn't do anything!" Seamus exclaimed, loud enough to draw several odd stares from other students.

"Don't worry we're rehearsing a play." Harry grinned as the students resumed yelling loudly at each other.

"I didn't do anything." Seamus hissed in a lower voice.

"That's not the point."

"Then what is?"

Wake me up from this nightmare
Wake me up, I know that I am drowning in the blood
Wake me up from this nightmare
Wake me up, I know I am drowning in the blood from a pitch black heart
Cut my throat
Spill my blood
Cut my throat
Spill my blood
Pitch black heart

"That you're the dude and that automatically makes it your fault." Harry said as he toyed with the odd meatloaf.

"Huh?"

"Mina is hurt and she wants you to apologize and give her a gift or some shit like that."

"Why?"

"Just do it."

OoOoOo

Seamus glared at Harry from around the flowers that were currently smashed against his head.

"Apologize and give her a gift, huh?" he asked angrily.

Harry smiled pleasantly, "This just means you'll have to go an extra step."

"Like what?" Seamus asked warily.

OoOoOo

It was odd that the table where everyone sat was empty.

Usually it was really crowded and was impossible to have three inches of personal space.

I ignored this and scrambled to get a seat anyway, force of habit and all that.

I frowned as the lights dimmed and the cafeteria grew quiet.

What was going on?

A lone florescent light shone in one circle, in which had been placed a mic.

Harry stepped into the spotlight and began to speak into the mic, "Ladies, Gentlemen and all of you who fall in between I am pleased to present this special surprise to all of you and especially to Miss Mina Aino, say hi to audience."

Suddenly everyone was looking at me.

"Days swiftly come and go.
I'm dreaming of her
She's seeing other guys
Emotions they stir
The sun is gone.
The nights are long
And I am left while the tears fall.

Where was that music coming from?

"Did you think that I would cry,
on the phone?
Do you know what it feels like,
being alone?
I'll find someone new

I know that voice!

"Chorus
(Swing) Swing, Swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again.

Imagine the look on my face when Seamus stepped out of the shadows.

He was singing!

Was this the same Seamus I had been dating?

"Wish cast into the sky
I'm moving on
Sweet beginnings do arise
She knows I was wrong
The notes are old,
They bend, they fold
and so do I to a new love.

I smiled as the song went on.

"Did you think that I would cry,
on the phone?
Do you know what it feels like,
being alone?
I'll find someone new

There was a warm feeling blossoming in my abdominal area, in retrospect could have been the meatloaf setting my digestive track aflame.

"(Swing) Swing, Swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again

My inflamed digestive track was spreading to my face, because apparently I was blushing.

"Bury me
(you thought your problems were gone)
Carry me
(away. away, away...)

Chorus fades till end
(Swing) Swing, Swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again
"

As the notes faded away and the lights returned to their normal austere florescent harshness I quickly exited stage right.

I had someone to apologize to.
