Leaving

193 11 2

On Monday news crews were everywhere. Everyone tried to speak to me but I just escaped by looking in one direction (hahah funny... get it? One direction? Really Jesse? Really? Sorry) and when they turn to see what it was I run away. Not very tactful but it works. So here I was running away from these people that I have never met who are suddenly my friends. Having people tell you everything they know about you gets creepy after the first sentence like really how in God's name did you get my height? I don't even know that! And the fact that all the dances followed a similar routine with me starting the dance and Hotoru finishing it.

Any way as I was saying I was running away from my 'followers' I had an apifany... let's just call it a genius idea on how to not tell Kira and Hotoru about my illness. I decided to tell them and the school about my plan... well only a small part of it so this was how I found myself in front of the school and news crews that didn't leave. Everyone was screaming and shouting to get my autograph but as soon as I held up my hand for silence everyone went still.

" Okay as you all are aware I had revealed my identity as well as the fact that I was retiring from dance but that is not what I came to talk to you about. I am here to tell you that I am going to be off the grid for a few months meaning I am not going to be at school or anywhere else that you are aware of for that matter. I am taking a break and going on holiday for a few months. I had visited my doctor and was told I need to relax for a few weeks as stress was making me sick so following my doctors instructions I am taking a break for a few months. I will be leaving tomorrow at noon. Thank you and goodbye." I just walked off the stage while everyone was still in shock.

I went home and packed all the things I wanted to take with. When I was done I took the bags and placed it in my jeep and left. I just turned the corner when in my rear view mirror I saw 6 cars drive up to my house before they were out of sight.

I relaxed after a few minutes of driving. Then tension I felt finally left as I enjoyed the ride. Putting the radio on, news of my departure was been broadcasted so I just plugged in my phone and Game over started playing through the speakers.

I turned up the volume so it blasted through and the car vibrated with the base. When the first line came on I sang along.

My life is like a video game,
Trying hard to beat the stage.
All while I am still collecting coins.
Trying hard to save the girl,
Obstacles, I'm jumping hurdles.
I'm growing up to be a big boy.

I battle with the evil ways,
I travel far, and try and save,
Sorry but your princess isn't here.
I take a rest, I push the pause,
Level up, and move along
In hopes that the next stage I will clear.
(I fucking passed asshole!)

I'm just trying to keep from dying

It's just a game that we play
And for heaven's sakes
Looking for a better way to play it!
Life is for keeping score and forever more,
Stop complaining and start changing it.

Today I went to therapy,
Told him my embarrassing
Issues that I'm having with my life.
He told me that I need to change,
Life is not a video game.
So stop playing and open up your eyes

I'm just trying to keep from dying

It's just a game that we play
And for heavens sakes
Looking for a better way to play it!
Life is for keeping score and forever more,
Stop complaining and start changing it.

Don't talk about it,
Just be about it,
Don't ever doubt it even when your brain is clouding.
I may be crazy,
But life's amazing
And through it all even with your problems facing.
So just know its okay.

My life is like a video game,
Trying hard to beat the stage.
All while I am still collecting coins.

Once the last note was sung I just smiled and enjoyed the drive. Sorry guys but I don't want to be a burden with this desease... forgive me.
