Chapter Thirteen: Alex's P.O.V.

I woke up to screaming and a door slamming. What they hell was that? I got up and looked at what I was wearing. Grey sweat, t-shirt with the skeleton of a bat, and my hair was hanging around my shoulders. As I walked downstairs, I heard nothing. Whatever happened, hopefully, hasn't turned into a death glare match thingy. When I walked into the living room, I saw Mitch and Rob sitting on the couch. They didn't notice me. Mitch had his head in his hands. When he lifted his head, I saw tear streaks. I stood behind the door and listened in. "Rob, I don't know what to do. I love them both, but Alex hates my guts right now and she has a good reason. Rob, I'm so confused." I heard Mitch weep. "I know buddy. You'll figure it out." Rob said. "What if I don't. What if I spend the rest of my life without them?" Mitch said, his voice raising. From the stairs, I heard the floorboards creak. I turned and saw Zach. I motioned for him to be quiet and to stand next to me. We both pressed our ear up to the door. "Who can't you live without more?" Rob asked Mitch. "That's just it. I don't know. I love them both." Mitch replied. "Give it time, Mitch, you'll figure it out. I'm gonna go ahead to Pax. Come when you're ready." Rob said. Zach and I started panicking before running into the kitchen. 

We waited before Rob was surely gone before coming out. We both ran quietly upstairs. Zach went into his room and I stayed at the top of the stairs. After a few minutes, I walked down the stairs, making sure I stepped right on the creaking step. When I burst into the living room, I saw Mitch laying down. He looked so sad that I couldn't help but feel a little sorry. "Mitch, what are you doing here?" I asked. He suddenly sat up as if he forgot I lived here. "Alex, I'm sorry. I'll just go." he says and gets up to go to the door. "No, Mitch, it's fine. You can stay." I say and sit down on the couch. Mitch comes and sits at the other end. Mitch still had tear streaks on his cheeks. "Mitch, are you OK?" I asked, glancing over at him. He shook his head. "I don't feel happy. Isn't that what its supposed to be. Make yourself happy before others? I'm making other people happy, but I'm not happy. It feels like my life is just nothing. How is your life so easy?" he asked, turning to me. I faced him and took a deep breathe. "Mitch, my family isn't tight and happy, OK. Two of my brothers basically hate me and the other three don't talk to me much. I'm bullied at school. I haven't seen my mom since I was....... I don't know. A LOT of people hate me. I lost my bestest friend in the world to war. And to top the cake, I have an annoying voice in my head that won't shut up about dad. Now tell me how easy I have it." I tell him and face to the TV. He's an annoying prat. And who are you calling annoying! Maybe I will force yourself to experience my pain! Aiden screamed. I brushed it off and tried to keep tears in. I wasn't strong enough. The tears were coming, but I wasn't going to hide it. If Mitch does care, he'll show it. 

Mitch scooted closer to me. "Alex." Mitch said softly. I faced him. He took his thumb and wiped a loose tear away. He closed his eyes and started to lean in. I freaked out so I just closed my eyes. His lips collided with mine. He wrapped his arms around my waist while I wrapped mine around his neck. I felt him smile and couldn't help but smile too. After a while, we both had to pull away for air. "Alex, I love you." Mitch said smiling a little. I panicked a little. "I-I love you, too." I whispered. He quickly pecked my lips and we got up. While he went to the kitchen, I went to my room. I changed into my black skinny jeans with holes, my grey Pierce The Veil t-shirt, my black converse, and my grey beanie. My brown hair goes into a braid down the side and I put my ring with 'Forget' engraved on. After I'm all ready, I grab my acoustic guitar and my skateboard. My earplugs go in and the first song is 'Waiting For Superman' by Daughtry. I never saw why people hated them and The Wanted. Mitch tried to get my attention, but I pushed him away so I could focus on Daughtry's voice. 

I skateboarded over things and past things, only focusing on my music. It mainly consisted of Paramore, Daughtry, Jason Mraz, Pierce The Veil, etc. I finally made it to Pax and skated to the booth. Yeah, I was a little late, but oh well. The signing went by fast. After I finished, Ty grabbed my hand and led me away from the others. "Mitch told me about this morning." he whispered. "Oh, yeah, that." I say and study my shoes. "Are you sure you want to go through with it?" he asked. I nodded. "Ty, I'm pretty sure about this time. I feel it or maybe it's the fact I didn't have breakfast." I say, still looking at my shoes. "You better get to the stage. Ash, Jackson, and Max need you." he said and hands me my guitar case. We hugged before I ran off to the stage. "Sup my brothers from other mothers." I screamed when I saw them. The laughed a little. "OK, what songs are we doing?" Max asked. "I was hoping I could do a few songs with just me, like 2 or 3, and then the other ones I told you about yesterday." I said. They nodded. I walked out to the stage. Ash, Max, and Jackson were behind me. We decided that I would do my solo after we did all the other songs. We sung "Mindset" by Every Avenue, "Young Volcanoes" by Fall Out Boy, "This is Gospel" by Panic! At The Disco, "Forever and Always" by Taylor Swift, "Face Down" by and "Rebel Love Song" by Black Veil Brides. 

As 'Rebel Love Song' by Black Veil Brides finished, I saw something that was just heart-wrenching. I wanted to crumble down and cry my heart out. I was stupid and fell for him again. I hope he's happy. There was Mitch and Michelle, in the middle of the crowd, having a full on make-out session (tongues involved). Ash came over and whispered in my ear. "What song now?" Better Then Revenge" by Taylor Swift then "It's Gonna Be Hard (When I'm Gone)" by The Audition." I answered. It took all my strength not to cry right then and there. Ash nodded and told the others. The music started and i let it course through my body. Let the music take full control. After both of the songs, I opened my eyes and looked out at the crowd, making sure to avoid Mitch's gaze. He had Michelle right by his side. We went backstage. "Are you OK?" Max asked as he pulled me into a hug. I shook my head and a sinlge tear ran down my cheek. "Do you need me to go punch him again?" Max asked, laughing a little. I couldn't help but laugh a little also. "No, I don't want another fight to break out. I'll just go ahead and go on with the show." I said and grabbed my acoustic guitar. Now, what to play. 

Oh, I know exactly what to play. "Safe And Sound" by Taylor Swift, "Be Your Everything" by Boys Like Girls, the acoustic version of "Bulletproof Love" by Pierce The Veil, and "Don't Forget" by Demi Lavato (acoustic version). When those ended, I opened my eyes and looked out to the crowd. Everyone was still normal. No one was turning into a monster. Why? Because you're feeling hurt right now. Don't worry, just play your last song. Aiden said. I nodded slight;y and started playing the intro to it. It was "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz. My eyes stayed closed, but tears were starting to slip through. A few here and there turned to  a drizzle of them. My voice wasn't shaking so I was fine to keep going. Truth was, I've already given up on Mitch. Three times he did this to me. What is wrong with me? Why'd I cause myself this pain? Was it because I was trying to fill the hole in me? I don't know. When the song  ended, I didn't bother to open my eyes, I just ran back stage, set my guitar in it's case, and sunk down against the wall. Tears came out in a flood. Why was I staying here when I wanted to be alone? I got up and started walking towards the doors of Pax. That was until I felt three people come up around me and pull me back. "No, you're not doing this. We aren't gonna let you." Ash said. "Let me go. That is if you know what's god for you." I said. They all let go. I kept going to the doors. My hands were in tight fists at my side. Where was I going?

Hey guys, hope y'all liked it and enjoyed. Anyway, I'll see y'all pretty faces later.
