Schools Out For The Weekend

Dragon's Crimson Tears : This is the last chapter... it has a really long speech that Seto makes, adressing everyone, and I want you to read it with the most kind hearted-ness you can, and think about it, because it's all true... I want to adress all and every homophobic out there... this Chapter is for you... Please... Don't discriminate against us, just because we live the way we want to...

Seto stood outside Joeys house, waitnig for the slow poke to hurry up, it was Monday and he had promised him he would pick him up.

"JOEY! Hurry it up! Time is MONEY!" He yelled. "Only for you rich people! We poor people have to work for some things!" Joey shouted, slamming the front door as he came out. "ARE YOU SAYING I DON"T WORK FOR ANYTHING?" Seto said tackling him to the ground... hitting the large pile of leaves that Joey had raked up the day before. "No, I'm saying your ass is a lazy ass..." He lightly kissed Seto on the cheek, trying to make his mind stray, for a least a moment so he could get out of his current position. "Trying to make me forget you in trouble huh? Well forget it! Now, get up and get in the car BEFORE I SPANK YOU!" Seto said, getting off so Joey could get up. The ride was quiet, but at least it was a short ride.

AT SCHOOL

Joey got out for Seto's lemo first, then Seto himself. The first thing he noticed was that everyone was starring at him. 'huh, I wonder what's going on...Oh look! there's Yugi' "HEY YUGI!" He cried out as he walked up to the group. "Huh? Oh, Hey Joey, Seto" Yugi said, pulling away from Bakura. After Joey finished telling all of his friends hi, he asked Yugi if he was ready for the report, which, they had to read aloud. "Yeah, I'm ready for the most part... I just don't like the part where we have to stand in front of the class and read it..." He said before looking around. "Um Joey?..." He whispered," Everyone is starring at you?" "Yeah.. I wonder why...Do I have something on my face?" Everyone started laughing as they headed off for their first block classes.

1ST BLOCK

Seto stood in the front of the class, right next to Joey... The teacher had selected them to go first, because she said she thinks they qwould be the ' most interesting' to hear about. So there he stood, trying to figure out how to start...

"When I fist saw Joey Wheeler, I thought, wow another freaking wanna be trying to get close to someone with money... But long since this assignment was given out, many aspects of my life has changed." Seto said, trying to grab the listeners attention, which had obviously worked, considering EVERYONE was watching him.

"But, as I talked to him, and watched him, I began to understand why he is the way he is... He has something good to wake up in the morning, It's not money, good grades, a job, or even a dog... He has what most people don't...Good, reliable friends... People like Yugi Moto, and Ryou Bakura... Neither of which did I pay any attention to until I had to spend my time with him. I learned more things in this past weekend, then I have ever learned in such a short period of time, or from one person." Oh yeah, he defineitly had their attention.

"Doing this project on Gay Marriage ment that I would have to put myself in a Gay man's shoes, which believe me wasn't that hard, but you have to think, act, dream, love, and believe like them. This past weekend was the hardest weekend of my entire life... Being a gay male, a lesbian or even a Bisexual, has to be one of the hardest things for a person. You get discriminated against, for one reason and one reason only. Your different. You don't think or live a certain way, and they immediantly point the finger at you. If you ever want to feel like someone is degrading you, or putting you down... Then by all means don't deny your sexuality, because more people think that Gay Marriage is evil, yet they believe in abortion, which, no matter how you look at it, is the murder of a child not even given a chance. I don't understand what's with people these days, In history, such as ancient Greece, it was excepted, at least everything up to marriage was. I don't know why you will try to hurt someone, call them hurtful names, make them feel unwanted, and put them down, just to make them want to commit suicide, and just to rid the world of people you don't like."

Joey looked like he was going ot cry... actually everyone looked that way... Seto had them right where he wanted him...

"I learned one very important thing this weekend though, you can find love in any shape, form, or color, and I for one found love in the most unexpected places. And whether, or not, you believe it's right. I will always love, My Joey Wheeler..." He said as he leaned over and kissed his deeply on the mouth...
