What A Tragic Affair (Frank Teacher)
I slowly pulled my head away from our passionate kiss, I could still taste his lips on mine. When I kissed Frank it was hard and urgent but with Gerard it was soft and slow. My lips just moulded with his you know. I bit my lip and lowered my head looking at myself. I was disgusting, Frank might not have even been with someone else. Even if he was, was it really any of my business. Were we exclusive? I kissed Gee. We were friends. Actually we were friends pretending to be a couple. When did everything get so complicated?
Don't cry Missy, don't be pathetic.
"I'm sorry Gerard," I said quietly under my breath.
He placed his had around my neck, "Listen Missy, I understand you're having a hard time. I mean Mr Iero messes you about. I want you to know, it's okay, and I will always be here for you." He planted a quick kiss on my forehead before rolling out of his bed.
I nodded to my self and took a few deep breathes. "You need to go and find out what really happened with Mr Iero and this 'girl'." He demanded putting on some clothes that he picked up off the floor.
"Yeah, I will text him and ask to meet him tonight. I'm gonna tell him about us," I took a gulp "...kissing and pretending to be a couple." My breathing was hitched, "First I need to explain to Mikey, Billie and Ray why we were arguing, I'm sure they are wondering. Lets just say we were having a lovers spat. Okay?" I spoke putting on my bottom clothing and fixing my hair.
"That's fine for me."
"Guys!" Gee shouted across the house as I followed behind him.
I couldn't believe the time, it was late afternoon already. We all met in the kitchen.
"Is this about you and Missy arguing?" Mikey asked Gee while holding Billie around the waist.
"Yeah, I guess. It's nothing to worry about, we are fine. We were just getting worked up over nothing, just a lovers spat, you see?" Gee's lies rolled off his tongue effortlessly.
I couldn't believe how calm he was just lying like that to his friend. I was stressing a bit, the whole situation about us being a fake couple scared me.
"Missy, come here," Billie demanded grabbing my wrist and taking me into the living room.
"Okay well I know you and Gerard are not a couple," My eyes widened and my palms began to sweat. Overall I guess it wasn't a big deal, I just didn't want anyone knowing about me and Mr Iero. I trust Billie now, and Mikey. Maybe they should know?
I nodded confirming her theory. "How?"
"You could tell, also I heard what you guys were shouting about. About some guy? Now my question is, who is this mystery guy?"
Well. I might as well tell the group, I mean Gee and Ray already knew about me and Sir. Billie knows I'm not with Gee so I might as well clean up all this mess, all these lies.
I lead Billie Rose back to the kitchen.
"Guys!" I waved to get everyone's attention and waited for silence. "Okay, me and Gee are not a couple. We never were, we made it up," Mikey looked shocked and confused whereas Billie looked proud for knowing already. Ray looked disappointed that I told the truth, he found the whole thing hilarious.
"Why lie?" Mikey asked with a rushed tone and screwing up his forehead.
Gerard didn't have any emotion. He looked like he didn't care.
Gerard cleared his throat ready to speak but I had a feeling he was going to try and cover for me and my secret relationship with Mr Iero. No, I didn't want more lies.
"Because..." Gerard turned his face confused about my next sentence. "I'm in a relationship with someone else." I announced.
"Why couldn't you tell us this?" Mikey spoke out.
Gerard and Ray stared, I felt their eyes burning on my. They were wondering what I would say. If I would lie again.
"The guy I'm with...sorta, is Mr Iero,"
Mikey and Billie stared at me gobsmaked whereas Ray laughed in the corner, I swear any time I said 'Mr Iero' Ray found it hysterical.
Gerard rubbed my arm supportingly which really made me smile. He's such a good guy. He wrapped his hand around my waist and gave me a little squeeze.
"Well done," Gee lent down and whispered in my ear with a smirk.
Me and Gerard went on a stroll after the ordeal. Of course Mikey and Billie asked all the details and I explained for over an hour. Billie ran out of questions to ask so me and Gerard went on a walk leaving Billie and Mikey alone at Gee's house. Ray went home while I explained the 'me and Mr Iero thing' to everyone. It was 6/7ish when Me and Gerard went out. We walked down to park where I found Gerard drunk earlier in the week. I texted my mum that I would be home later in the night, not that she cared. I felt like I had hardly seen her this week, but I think she let me out so much as I was with friends.
Gerard slipped his arm around my waist as I sat down on the swing set as did Gee.
"Have you sent Frank the text?"
I got my phone out of my pocket and stared at my last texts to Frank. I just stared at it. "Missy?" Gerard nudged me.
"Yeah, I mean if I want to talk to him tonight, I better get something together now." I was nervous, very very nervous. I closed my eyes tight and brought my phone to my face. I was ringing Frank.
