Sunny, warm and a little windy was the temperature of the mid spring day. It matched the mood of the three people sitting inside the house located about a mile out of town.

Bryan his brother Gaybe and their friend Victoria sat in the same room listening to music and sipping on their glasses of whiskey and coke. Bryan and Victoria are sitting on one couch, Torii leaning against him with a twinkle in her eye. While next to them in a single chair Gaybe is leaning back comfortably.

The two guys were on a pretty good buzz and she had had a little too much to drink. She wasn't completely wasted but was finishing up her share. They sat there talking about this and that and made each other laugh every chance they got.

Especially Torii. She got in the habit of laughing at every little thing and that would send Bryan and Gaybe into hysterics just watching her.

After Torii's sixth glass of the mixed drink, and too much whiskey added, Bryan took her glass from her and told her she couldn't have anymore.

"Oh come on, Bry. I'm okay, just one more glass," she pleaded with him.

"No," he said sternly, "Your in bad enough shape and your parents will kill me if they found out I was supplying you. Besides, that's what you said after your third drink,"

She gave him a puppy-dog look but he didn't fall for it. "That's not going to work. You've had enough,"

"Fine," she gave in, too weak to argue with him.

He stood up and walked into the kitchen to put the glass in the sink. Torii leaned back against the couch and stared at the ceiling.The mood had sobered down a bit after their hysteria.

"When do you get to come back to school?" Torii asked Gaybe.

He had been suspended for getting into a fight with his ex-girlfriend's brother the day before. They had never really liked each other and when the guy had gotten in his face he punched him. Needless to say it didn't end up well. The guy ended up with bruises everywhere and Gaybe got off with a shiner and a couple scratches.

"Um..." he looked like he was seriously trying to think about it, "The week after this Tuesday," he finally responded.

She leaned over and looked at him with heavy eyelids. "Wow, that long huh?"

"Yeah, stupid assholes," he murmured.

There was silence for a few minutes before he finally spoke again. It sounded as if it was more to himself than it was to her, but he said it loud enough so that she could be included in the conversation.

"They all need their brains blown out," he said, "I mean, someone needs to walk into that school and just shooting...Bang! Bang! Bang!"

At saying this he held his hands up like a gun and aimed at and imaginary figure across the room.

"That would be awesome. Especially if they 'accidentally' hit one of those bitches that need their head blown off. Or better yet, kill them all. Revenge would be sweet..." he continued then trailed off into his own thoughts.

Before Torii could say anything Bryan walking back into the room and sat down next to her. She leaned up against him again and got lost in her own thoughts.

He looked at the two of them, both dazing off into their own little worlds and was curious as to what was going on.

"So...what did you guys talk about while I was gone?" he asked no one in particular.

"Oh, nothing important," Torii replied drowsily, "Just blowing people's heads off at school,"

At that she snuggled closer to him and fell asleep.
