Awake and Unafraid- Chapter 8Frank and Gerard became very close after that day. Gerard even told Frank about wanting to kill. He was very mature about it and acted like a mini-therapist.
"I think you want to kill because when you killed Kyle, you felt in control, like you could help people when they needed it. When your dad died you had to just watch, you couldn't save him. You, Mikey, and your mom were being hurt by Kyle, what could you have done against him before when you were younger? When you snapped, the adrenaline rush helped you react to the threatening situation." Frank paused to eat a handful of chips. "When you killed Kyle, you were in control of everything, you felt powerful, and you just wanted to feel that again."
"So "doctor" Frankie, what do I do?" He asked.
"Hmm." Frank stroked his imaginary goatee. "Well, you need control, and you don't think you have any, but you do. You're the man of the house, you're Mikey's protector, you're in charge of keeping him safe."
"How can someone so short and young
Awake and Unafraid- Chapter 7Gerard woke up with a pounding headache, but he wasn't as tired. That 'talk' with his dad actually helped. He cleaned Billie's cage and refilled his food and water. Billie crawled into his hand and squeaked. He did this when he wanted music, and Gerard didn't want to hear a squeaking ball of fuzz. He placed Billie back in his cage and turned on the music. The squeaking stopped but Gerard grabbed some advil anyways.
There was a knock on the door and Frank walked into Gerard's room. "Hey. Long time no see." He chirped.
"Frankie! Where've you been?"
"My mom made me do extra homework so I wouldn't fail math."
"Well I missed you." Gerard gave Frank a hug.
"I missed you to. I haven't seen Billie in forever too."
"He's right over here."
The boys played with Billie and listened to Frank's new CD. Frank had brought beer with him and the two boys played truth or dare, whilst drunk. "Okay truth or dare?" Gerard asked.
"Okay, I dare you to take off your shirt!" Gerard laughed.
Awake and Unafraid- Chapter 6"Not guilty." The judge declared. Gerard was in a small court room, being tried to determine if he was guilty of manslaughter. Thankfully, it was ruled as self-defence.
Gerard hadn't slept much since that night, and when he did, he dreamt about killing Kyle over and over again. One night, he lay on his bed staring at the ceiling, wanting nothing more than to talk to someone, but he didn't know who. Nobody alive could understand or be trusted.
"Dad " He whispered. Gerard's father died 3 years ago, brain cancer. "Dad, I wish you were here. Whenever I needed to talk you were there." Gerard wiped a tear from his eye. "I guess I can talk to you still, you've got to be out there watching over me and Mikey." He paused and thought about what he wanted to say. "Dad I'm scared, of myself. I can't stop thinking about killing Kyle. I want to kill him again, I loved the feeling of stabbing him in the chest, I enjoyed watching his eyes turn lifeless, and the blood! The smell of it, the sight of
Awake and Unafraid- Chapter 5Gerard heaved the corpse off of him with much difficulty. He looked at the bloody knife on the floor. He picked it up and washed it in the sink before hiding it. He grabbed a kitchen knife and smeared blood on it, then picked up the phone and called the cops.
He found his mother and Mikey hiding in the bathroom. Gerard's mother screamed in horror as she looked at her son, covered in blood, hands stained red. "What happened?! Gerard did you kill- oh my god you're going to jail! I'm going to lose my son! It's my fault! I'm so sorry!" She sank to the floor, crying hysterically.
"Mom, it wasn't your fault. This was self-defence. Everything is going to be okay." Gerard and Mikey led her outside so she could get some air.
The boys went back inside. "Gee is he really dead?" Mikey's voice was shaking.
Gerard knelt next to the body and checked for a pulse. He found none. "He's definitely dead." He turned to his little brother and patted his head. "It's okay. You were really brave. I'm pro
Awake and Unafraid- Chapter 4When Mikey and Gerard got home, they saw Kyle's rusty old car in their driveway. Gerard spat, "Great that loser's here. I can't fucking stand that guy!"
"Gee, don't get him mad. He's like four times your size."
"I don't care. I'll take him on any day!"
Kyle was lying on the couch, watching TV and drinking. Gerard and Mikey walked past him silently. Gerard had a sickening feeling in the pit of his stomach, something bad always happened when Kyle was drinking.
Mikey went to his room to read and Gerard went to the kitchen. His mom was talking loudly on the phone so he stole over to the fridge and grabbed a couple of beers. Gerard ran back to his room, locked the door, and turned on some music. Music and alcohol, his favourite drugs, the only things that let him sleep and relax. Gerard looked at Billie's cage. He was running on his wheel. Gerard grabbed a bag of treats and dropped three in the tiny food bowl. Billie hopped of the wheel and looked at the bottle in his owner's hand. Gerard l
Awake and Unafraid- Chapter 3"Oooh look who it is. Little baby Mikey and his faggot brother!" Matt jeered. He booted the ball they stole from Mikey at Gerard's face. Gerard caught it easily.
"Matt, if you bother Mikey again, I'm going to kill you. Understand?"
"Ohh I'm so scared."
Gerard dropped the ball in front of his right foot and shouted, "Matt catch!" Gerard kicked the ball as hard as he could, it hit him square in the face.
Matt was knocked over by the force of the hit. Josh tried to wake him, but Matt was unconscious. Evan ran at Gerard, but Gee ducked, making Evan trip and fall. Josh started running, but Gerard tackled him and punched him in the stomach.
"Gerard that was so cool! You're like a super-hero!" Mikey praised him as they went home. It felt like a victory march.
Mikey's praise made Gerard blush. "Mikey, make sure you don't tell mom what I did okay? You know she doesn't like when I get into fights."
"I won't say anything." Mikey promised solemnly.
"Good, now let's get you cleaned up."
The rest of
Awake and Unafraid- Chapter 2Gerard woke up at 2:00pm on Saturday. He felt refreshed after his sleep even after the long party last night. He put on a clean black t-shirt and some gray jeans. Gerard went to the bathroom to fix his hair. He was going to buy his hamster today. Looking into the mirror, he ran his fingers through his long, jet black hair. Purple bags were beginning to show under his hazel eyes, they weren't so bad, except his pale face made them more noticeable. Gerard brushed his hair and teeth quickly and ran out the door.
The spring air of April was warm today. The sun was out, but rain clouds were forming in the distance. Gerard walked to the pet store and picked out a hamster. It was a tiny, fluffy thing, with black eyes and gray and white fur. "Hey little guy." He said to his new pet. "I'm gonna call you Billie." The hamster squeaked and Gerard took that as a sign of approval.
Gerard walked through various stores, looking for anything interesting. Billie stayed in Gee's hand. Something in
Awake and Unafraid- Chapter 1The hallways of Westfield Elementary are quiet and empty, until the clock hits 3:30 and the bells ring. An explosion of young children fills the halls. They pour from the classrooms and race to their lockers, eager to get out of school and start their long weekened. One boy, eleven years old, pushes through the hoards of kids. He makes his way to the 4th graders lockers, where a brown haired boy with glasses is stuffing books and papers into a backpack.
"Mikey hurry up." The older boy says.
"I'm coming Gee!" He says as he hoists the heavy bag onto his back with mucyh effort.
"Why are you bringing so much stuff home? You know we have to walk today."
"If I leave my stuff in my locker the other kids steal it." Mikey explained.
"Matt is still giving you trouble?"
Mikey nodded. "Yeah, him and all his friends."
"I'll protect you Mikey, if you ever need my help just let me know."
Mikey hugged his brother. "Thanks Gerard."
The two boys walk home was uneventful. They talked about Gerard's birth
Stained Red- Chapter 12Frank was in the hospital for a week before he was allowed to leave. They both recovered from their injuries. Officer Toro kept his promise and Gerard wasn't charged for Tritter's death.
It took four months for Frank to recover completely. Gerard took an extra day off work to celebrate when he was declared healthy again. He snuck up behind Frank and wrapped his arms around him.
"So my dear, what do you want to do today? I'm all yours."
Frank giggled. "How about we see a movie, get some dinner, and go to the carnival later?"
"Sounds great. Now come here you." Gerard hoisted Frankie onto one shoulder and carried him out to the car, Frank giggling all the way.
Gerard and Frank had almost finished their day out. They were at the carnival, riding every fast ride they saw. They played games, and Gerard won Frank a giant stuffed bear.
When the crowds started to die down, the pair left. They walked hand in hand to the car. "Hey Frank, wanna put the bear in the car? We could go for a walk and g
