Walking out of my bedroom the very next morning was harder than I imagined. "Why would you leave me like that Alana?" My mom screamed at me.

"You know what? Just fuck off!" I hollered back. Passing by her, not caring what she wanted to say to me, I was planning on going to school, graduate than leave the state. I couldn't stand being on this earth knowing I hurt Josh like that. It hurt me.

Just as I took one big step outside of the door, there he was. Looking gorgeous as ever. He was with a boy. The boy looked younger than him, and had brown eyes and caramel brown hair. He was just as gorgeous as Josh. "JOSH!" I screamed. I jumped out of my house barefooted, and over to him, I couldn't help but give him a hug! He smelt, like brown sugar and he was some-what glad to see me. I think.

"Alana?" He looked at me puzzled. He didn't fully understand why, I was so happy to see him. Of course I did abandon him, at a motel, at the middle of the night, for a horrible reason.

"Josh, I am so sorry! You have no idea how sorry, I am. I shouldn't have left you, your the best thing that has ever happened to me! I'm really sorry! Please forgive me, I know I was a HUGE bitch, but I'm really sorry!" I rambled. He brushed his soft, cracked lips against mine. Probably his way to shut me up.

"It's okay baby! I forgive you" He replied. Took a step back and smiled. His friend looked even more confused. "Who is this, Josh?" I asked politely

"I'm Matt. And whats this lovely lady's name?" He asked me.

"Well I am Alana." I answered. Matt had a guitar behind his back. I guessed he played just like Josh. He was content, but also really awkward. I liked him, he was really nice.

We walked down to the basement, to where we found a mic stand, and a recording mic. They told me to sit down. And I just watched as they took the the mic and stood in positions. Ready to start playing. They start playing and started singing,

teach me how to be real and
show me how to understand
dont let me swallow
how much id like to be alive
where do all those good things hide?
toss me a line

dont pick me up off the ground
ill be fine in a lost and found
just when i start to force a smile
just when im laughing all the while
ive been faking

playing dead

and i would wrap myself in stitches
if youd wrap yourself in me
and i would wrap myself in blue
you can be the sunshine and
and i would be the force at hand
yea youd be so in demand

dont pick me up off the ground
ill be fine in a lost and found
just when i start to force a smile
just when im laughing all the while
ive been faking it

playing dead

(ooohs and aaahhhs and ba ba ba)

i could be the turpentine
i could be the licorice
i could be the winning one
i could be the parting gift

dont pick me up off the ground
ill be fine in a lost and found
just when i start to force a smile
just when im laughing all the while
ive been faking it

playing dead, playing dead
(im playing, im playing, im playing dead)

but its all been just pretend,
maybe you can pretend
to bring me to life again,
sometime


"That... Was fucking beautiful guys!" Muttered myself, still speechless from the talent that played. They bot could sing like angels, and they both could play guitars like pro's. They were perfect. I was going to try my best to make sure they succeeded.

"Really? Thanks" Matt replied. He smiled at me, then looked to Josh. They both smiled. I was so glad. They were happy.

Within' the past week we just kept practicing that song. They also made a new song within' that week... we've never played it through though. We were too nervous to.
