There you stood in disbelief,
trying all you could to see through these lies
And every word that I could breathe,
would find you more inclined to leave, but I tried
And knowing what I've done to you,
with every thought you suffer through
My heart as black as evil can
And everything I could have been,
erased by what I wanted then
I couldn't think a lesser man

“Hi Nick, How are you?”

“I’am Fine”

Nick getting back his senses felt anger flood his body, Greg had no right to just show up like that, especially when he was getting better, he didn’t want to feel happiness by looking at him, he just wanted to smack him. He grabbed up a few of his things and started to walk out the door.

“Nick wait.”

“Not for you”

Greg sighed defeated and sat down on Nick’s bed toying with a loose string that was in the comforter, he looked up at Warrick and shook his head and let a few stray tears fall down his cheeks.

“It was a mistake to come back”

“No G. not to be mean or anything, but I think it was a mistake to leave.”

Greg stood up and made his way out of the house and drove to his house almost blind from tears that he couldn’t stop from falling.

Nick was pacing back and fourth in his back yard and Warrick slowly approached him.

“You knew, You knew that Greg was back and you didn’t tell me, he was at your house and you decided to leave that little tidbit from me, what’s the deal Warrick?”

“I’m sorry Greg, he was planning on coming home, and I didn’t know how to break it to you and I didn’t know how’d you handle it. I thought it might be better if he just explained everything to you himself.”

“He was just standing there like it was no body’s business and acted like everything would be okay. “

“You have to calm down Nicky, you need to sit down with Greg and talk to him, maybe no good will come out of it. But you never know until you try.”

“I’m gonna go lay down Warrick, I’ll give you a call later how’s that?”

“Okay man,”

Warrick left and Nick went into his house and took a shower and walked into his room and he was hit in the face with Greg’s lingering smell, he cursed him for it and went in search of his cat Onyx so he could curl up with her and go to sleep, he found her sleeping in the clothes basket and he picked her up and she made a small mewing noise and curled up in his arms and went back to sleep. He sat on his bed and stared blankly around at his surroundings, he jumped waking up the cat when his cell phone started to ring, he managed to pick it up on the 3rd ring after fumbling trying to find the on button.

“Hello, I’m looking for Nick”

“Speaking, who is this?”

“Hi, I’m Chris, Alyssa’s cousin, she gave me your phone number, I hope that it’s alright that I’m calling”

“Oh yeah sure, that’s not a problem, your voice just took me off guard cause I didn’t recognize it. What’s up?”

“Not too much, I was just wondering if you’d like to hang out or something, I’m bored out of my skull and my sister isn’t the best company in the world.”

“That would be really great, I’m in serious need of getting out of my house.”

Greg was sitting in his car staring at his house, trying to figure out when it had become so foreign to him, he saw Warrick walking down the street and Greg greeted him as he stopped in his driveway.

“Hey man”

“Hey Warrick, how’re you doing?”

“Pretty good, you?”

“I’m a mess to be honest with you, I didn’t expect things to be perfect when I got home, but I also didn’t expect him to be so cold.”

“So do you know what you’re going to do?”

“I don’t know yet, maybe go back to school, wait the year out, go to school here, I really have no idea, I’m so confused, I thought I’d be less confused and happier here, now I feel like I don’t belong”

Greg ran his hand through his hair in utter frustration and sighed deeply; Warrick squeezed his arm and patted him on the shoulder.

“It’ll work out man, I promise. It might take a while, but if things are really meant to happen they will. Nick loves you, he hasn’t stopped, sure it might take a while before he can forgive you, but he will. He just needs time. Anyhow I better get going, I have a million assignments I gotta finish.”

Warrick started off back down the street and then he turned around and called Greg’s name.

“Hey G.”


“It’s good to have you home”

Greg smiled, and nodded.

“You need a lift back to you’re place Rick?”

“Yeah, I’m too lazy to walk home”

Warrick hopped in the car and they talked and caught up on all that they had missed, Warrick and Greg drove by Nick’s house and Greg watched as Nick was standing in the driveway talking to a blonde, he was laughing and his eyes were crinkled at the corners, one of the many things that Greg loved about Nick, Greg felt jealousy flair through him as the blonde man touched Nick’s cheek and Nick blushed, he gripped the steering wheel tightly and cursed under his breath and continued past the house, Warrick looked at him with a worried expression on his face but let the topic drop for the time being. Warrick hopped out of the car and smiled in at his friend.

“Remember, things will work out on their own, just give it time okay.”

Greg nodded and drove out of the driveway, he drove past Nick’s house and then past his own house, he found himself at a secluded bar and just wanted to drown his sorrow’s away, he was blaming himself for everything and he just wanted the world to slip away for a little while, he watched a blonde haired woman sit on the stool beside him and study him for a little while.

“What’s a cutie like you doing sitting here at the bar alone?”

Greg looked up and made eye contact with her, she was indeed beautiful but she wasn’t Nick, and nothing ever would compare to him, he just shrugged his shoulders and went back to staring at his drink.

“You having relationship problems sweetie?”

“You could say that”

He mumbled a response to her, he just wanted her to go away so he could be alone, she put her hand on his shoulder and started to rub gently, he flinched at her touch but relaxed under it. He heard a throat being cleared behind him and he turned around and came face to face with Alyssa.

“Greg what are you doing here?”

“Sitting, Drinking, what does it look like?”

“Come with me. Now”

Greg didn’t argue, he stepped down off the stool, only having one drink he could walk perfectly but Alyssa grabbed his shirt anyhow, she looked behind her and shot the blonde and evil glare and walked Greg out of the bar.

“I didn’t know you were coming home”

“Warrick was the only one that knew, and before you start yelling at be for being with that chick, it was her who was hitting on me, I was just drinking my beer, and Nick know’s I’m home, but he wants nothing to do with me, and it appears that he has found someone who’s better, mind you I wouldn’t blame him.”

The last part was more to himself than to Alyssa but she still heard it and felt immediately bad for Greg.

“I’m sorry.”

“Nah I pretty much deserved it, I screwed up everything in my life, and Nick was the most important part, I can’t believe it all went to shit so fast.”

He felt the tears pouring down his cheeks and Alyssa grabbed him and hugged him tightly.

“We’ll fix things Babe I promise, you’ll have Nick back in you’re arms before you think.”

Nick was sitting across from Chris at a restaurant, he was sipping on a virgin Cesar and he was laughing at something that Chris had said to him. He felt tears come to his eyes he was laughing so hard, Chris leaned across the table and took Nick’s hand in his and Nick squeezed it back, they left the restaurant and went to the newly fixed up park and walked around hand in hand watching the water sprinklers and fooling around at the band shell like a couple of children, Nick hadn’t felt this free and happy since before Greg had left him, and he didn’t want the feeling to go away, finally the night had to end, Chris said goodbye to Nick at his doorstep giving him a small kiss on the cheek, Chris pulled away and Nick put his hand to his cheek and smiled, he watched Chris drive down the street and then a person who was standing in his driveway came into focus. It was Greg, he was standing there with his mouth agape and his hands were clenched at his sides, tears had made their way down his cheek and dropped off his chin, Nick felt a pang of shame hit him in the chest and he walked forward towards Greg, but he took a step backward and opened his car door and pealed out of the driveway, Nick shook his head as he watched Greg’s car peal down the street.

“God I’m so confused”

He whispered to himself, he walked inside his house and with one last look outside he shut the door and made his way to his room, he laid down on the bed and fell into a very, very fitful sleep.

Oh, the pain in your eyes
My regrets have never known such sorrow
Oh, the shame that you hide
Resolutions are the same tomorrow

So now I reap what I have sown, and any rapture I
had shown has bled dry
And I walked the streets alone, accepting the pain I'd
never known, as you died
Then I hurt myself to see it too, to feel the knife I put
in you
My heart as broken as my ways
I never should've let it pass, this fall was never meant
to last
The reason gone and damage stays
