20 Questions (Peterick)
Pete Wentz didn't think that his actions could have consequences. He didn't think he had a choice in constantly bullying a small boy with orange hair and a fedora. He also didn't think that his friends could have caused any of this. Pete Wentz lived in ignorance, yet Patrick Stump did not. All of painful reality was as clear to him as water. Yet Patrick was a living reminder of the statement ' Ignorance is bliss'. He looked at his other classmates, not as peers, but a position he aspired to reach. He tried not to let his blue eyes show any pain, and any sense of insecurity so his father wouldn't see. His father wasn't quite mentally stable, some nights he came back too drunk to function, some nights he didn't come back at all. Either way Patrick had learned to survive on his own, it was either that or death. Patrick hoped that his father would never find out what was going on at school but luck was never in Patrick's favor. On one crisp Autumn night, Patrick's father found out and Patrick's life was never the same. His father couldn't quite understand the difference between bullying and something much worse. He felt his he had to justify the wrong that had been done to his son. Next comes the elaborate kidnapping scheme, that could in no way ever be considered just by anyone sane. Patrick, fueled by the age of years of wrongdoing at the hands of Pete Wentz. Is in no rush to set that very boy free. One day Patrick's dad comes back from work with a mysterious vial, containing a top of the line truth serum. Patrick has twenty doses to use at his will. It will take Patrick twenty days, twenty questions, and a whole lot of pain to find what is right.
