Rose: For the millionth time, I'm sorry for not updating! (Again!) I went go-karting on Thursday night and I stayed over at my friend's house for the night. And I was at her house on Saturday. Happy late 4th of July!

Clarity: I think 4th of July is one of the best holidays! Looking up at the fireworks on a clear starry night… so romantic!

Trey: Psh. 4th of July isn't supposed to be romantic. That's the time for a guy's night… and booze! And especially strippers…

Rose: ~slaps duct tape over his mouth~ Okay! Time to SHUT UP before A CERTAIN SOMEONE tries to kill you! ~hint hint~ You don't know what you're talking about because you're loyal to your girlfriend, RIGHT?

Trey: ~nods vigorously~ Mhm.

Clarity: -.- You're lucky this time.

Rose: Yeah Trey, I just saved your ass. You're welcome. Anyways, thank you guys for the 1,000+ views! This makes me happy. Now let's see if we can get to at least 10 reviews!

Clarity: Fun Fact: Inspirations for stories are all through Rose's daydreams.

Rose: I tend to do that often :D

Trey: ~gives a thumbs up to the readers~

Rose: So in the 1st April chapter, Clarity will graduate and move to New York to start her orientation. And all that Trey does is… eat junk food and be depressed like a baby. Enjoy!


April

Ch.27- Goodbye?

~Clarity~

"May I present to you, ladies and gentleman, Ms. Clarity Adams, our first 2105 graduate!"

The audience claps as I walk up to the podium to perform my speech. I look around to see if he's here, but no sign of him. I sighed and started my speech.

"Thank you everyone for coming. I never thought I would be here in this position. It's been my dream to go to Parsons and study fashion."

"But, sometimes, someone special could change that dream. If you love someone, sometimes you have to them go. I did that, and now I regret it. We could have make it work, but I chose New York. And now… I can't change it. It's something I will regret for the rest of my life."

"I'm going to miss all the friends I made, all the teachers I met, and most of all… that special someone. Thank you, and keep living your life the way you want it." The audience cheers and claps as I walk down the stage. Lucy and Noni run up to me and hug me.

"Congrats Clarity!" Noni yells. "I'm so proud of you!" Lucy exclaims. I stand on my toes to look for him.

"C, he's not here. He stayed home" Noni explained. I frowned. "Is he still upset?"

Victoria walked up to us. "Well, let's see, you broke his heart, you told him you weren't going to Prom, and that you are leaving for New York. What do you think he feels?"

"Thanks for the recap, Victoria."

"What? It's not MY fault that I left my boyfriend for fashion school!"

Tim walks up behind Victoria. "Vic, can't you see C already feels terrible about this situation? Don't add salt to the wounds. Cut the crap out."

"Well, thanks Tim. I have to leave in a couple hours, you guys want some cupcakes before I go?"

"Clarity, you don't have to make us cupcakes. Don't you have to pack up before going?" Jay responded.

"Yeah, but you guys can help me. I don't mind."

"Yeah, C's making us some cupcakes! Any chance I could get an added package with that? Maybe some ass?" Chad questioned. Lucy picked up a rock and threw it at his forehead. "OW! Okay, no ass!"


~Trey~

I watched Jerry Springer and threw some popcorn in my mouth. I laughed as the women fought over some guy that wasn't worth fighting for. Camille walked up to the TV and blocked up my view. "Um, Camille? I'm trying to watch a women fight!"

"We need to talk Trey."

"Can it wait after this? They're pulling out each other's weave!" She pushed the off button on the TV.

"Okay, I guess not!" Camille looks around her in disgust. "Ugh, what's all of this crap?"

"Oh, just some junk food from the last couple of days." I pulled out a half-eaten burger from a McDonald's bag and munched on it. "So, what do we need to talk about?"

"YOU! You've been sitting in front of this TV for days! Isn't it time to get up? And take a shower at least?" She sniffed and crinkled her nose.

"Look, ever since Clarity said that she's leaving, you've been a depressing little shit. And you need to get over it!"

"Oh, look who just swore! I guess it's time to put a quarter in the swear jar!"

Camille starts fuming. "Okay, you want a quarter?" She asked menacingly. "Here's your stupid quarter!" She picks up the TV and throws it at me. I jump out of the way quickly and my eyes grow wide. "Now, go shower! And this conversation isn't over!"

I quickly run up the stairs and jump into the shower. Damn, she's very strong…

And scary.


~Clarity~

I open the door and we all walked in. I take off my cap and gown and throw on my apron. "We'll just go pack up your stuff C." Noni stated. Her, Lucy, Victoria and Camille ran up to my room. I turn to the boys. "Want to help me bake some cupcakes?"

"Um, I'd love to, but um… I have a dick cramp!" Chad exclaimed, running upstairs. I sighed. "Don't worry C, we'll help!" Jay said. I smiled. "Thanks guys."

As we start baking, Trey's mom and Jax walked into the house. "There's our little graduate!" Jax laughed. I rolled my eyes. "Yeah, yeah. Hey, can you find my laptop and give it to Lucy?"

Jax nodded. She runs upstairs and Trey's mom comes into the kitchen. "Hey congrats C. What are you making?"

"Thanks. I'm making the gang cupcakes before it's time for me to go." I stirred the batter and poured it into the cupcake tray. "Thanks Jay and Tim. Can you guys put my baking stuff into a box?" They nodded and ran upstairs as I pushed the tray into the oven.

I set the temperature and the timer. "You know C, everyone has grown to love you and they're going to miss you. Especially Trey."

"What makes you say that?" I asked as I pulled out the frosting. "I've seen the way Trey looks at you. His eyes are full of love and compassion. No matter what he said to you, I know deep down he loves you."

"Well, I haven't seen him for the last couple of days. I doubt he still loves me now."

She frowns. "You know, he acted just like this when his father dropped him off at the center." I froze. "What?"

"He said he never wanted to speak to his father again. The kids said the same thing when their father left them."

"What happened?" I asked. She sighed. "The kids found him cheating with multiple women. We kicked him out and they haven't spoken to him since. Turns out his big 'multi-million' business was collecting cash for having sex with women."

"Oh, that's terrible. I'm sorry." She giggled. Huh? "Oh honey, believe me, they saved my life. If they didn't tell me about his scheme, I would have stayed with him for years."

I gasp. Trey told me about Jason. Is this some sort of sign?

Nah, I don't believe in that magic stuff. The timer goes off and I take out the cupcakes. I wave the smoke off and frost the cupcakes. The gang runs down and takes a whiff. "Mmm… red velvet cupcakes! Your best cupcake!" I giggled. "Only the best for my family."

They each take a cupcake and munch on it. "So, is all of my stuff packed?" Camille nodded. "We put everything in suitcases." I check the time. "Oh shit! I have to leave for New York in 2 hours!"

I run up and change. I see the bathroom door and Trey comes out with a towel around his waist. "Trey?" I asked. He looks at me with shock in his eyes, then his eyes turn into anger and he walks into his room without looking back.


~Trey~

Everyone is outside saying goodbye. And what am I doing, you ask? Watching them through the open window upstairs. Everyone gives her a hug and tears up. "Clarity, I'm going to miss you. Promise we'll Skype, okay?" Jax asked. Clarity nods. "Of course. I'll skype with all of you."

Jay and Tim close the trunk. "Okay, that's everything."

Clarity looks up at the window. She sees me and gives me a tiny wave. She steps into the car and drives away. I close the window and pick up my guitar.

~Verse 1~

There's a shop down the street when they sell plastic rings

For a quarter a piece, I swear it. Yeah, I know that is cheap,

Not like gold in your dreams, but I'll hope that you'll still wear it.

Yeah, the ink may stain my skin, and my jeans may all be ripped.

I'm not perfect, but I swear that I'm perfect for you.

~Chorus~

And there's no guarantee, that this will be easy.

It's not a miracle you need, believe me.

Yeah, I'm no angel, I'm just me, but I will love you endlessly.

Wings aren't what you need, you need me.

~Verse 2~

There's a house on the hill with the view of the town,

And I know how you adore it.

So I'll work through every day, through the sun and rain,

Until I can afford it. Yeah, your friends might think I'm crazy,

Cause they can only see, I'm not perfect,

But I swear I'm perfect for you.

~Chorus~

And there's no guarantee, that this will be easy.

It's not a miracle you need, believe me.

Yeah, I'm no angel, I'm just me, but I will love you endlessly.

Wings aren't what you need, you need me.

~Verse 3~

You need me, I know you need me.

You need me, I know you need me.

You need me, I know you need me.

You need me, I know you need me.

~Verse 4~

Ink may stain my skin, and my jeans may all be ripped,

I'm not perfect, but I swear I'm perfect for you.

And there's no guarantee, that this will be easy.

It's not a miracle you need, believe me.

Yeah, I'm no angel, I'm just me, but I will love you endlessly.

Wings aren't what you need, you need me.

You need me (I know you need me), you need me (I know you need me),

You need me (I know you need me), you need me (I know you need me).

~Ending~

There's a shop down the street where they sell plastic rings,

For a quarter a piece, I swear it. Yeah, I know that it's cheap,

Not like gold in your dreams, but I hope that you'll still wear it.

I put my guitar down and walk up to my desk. I pick one of the open envelopes and take out the letter. I pick up my phone and dial the number. "Hello? Hey, I was wondering, do you guys still have that spot open?"

"Great, then I'll be up there in June. Thank you, bye."


Rose: And that's where it's ending. Who do you think Trey called? And where is going? By the way, Clarity's going to have a song in the next chapter and I don't own any of the songs.

Clarity: It's a song you might know ;)

Trey: I sang "Endlessly" by The Cab and to be honest, I love that song!

Rose: That song has been stuck in my head for weeks and it won't get out! I just like that the theme is about being imperfect and loving someone who they are.

Trey: Everyone, we have an announcement!

Clarity: Rose has decided to make a series all about pop culture and comedy!

Rose: Basically, I will have two series, one about short funny stories created by yours truly, and the other one is about what's happening in pop culture and celebrity news. And I wouldn't make this announcement if the series wasn't coming soon, so look out for those because in a few days, you will have new stories to read! Goodbye, and thanks for the views!
