So I wasn’t exactly ready to post the next chapter of *Bad Reputation* today, maybe tomorrow. Hopefully you like this, so I hope you enjoy ;-)
She stares out the window of the moving car, wondering why she was even going. It’s not like he actually wanted her there. He had only invited her to make it look as if they were still friends, but deep down she knew they had lost all ties to friendship years ago. Now in days it was like they had become strangers; like their past had never existed. In her heart she knew she still loved him, but he had moved on a long time ago. At least that’s how he made it look, to everyone around him.
“Hey were here.” A faint voice speaks, she doesn’t say a word or move a muscle, she just continues to stare out the window, wishing that she’d wake up from the dream that seemed to be the most joyful day to everyone around her, but for her she knew that today would be the day that the last string that connected them would began to break apart…
She sits in silent for another minute, before hearing the same faint voice. It was almost like the person that spoke was a mile away, when in reality they had only been a few inches apart.” We have to go now, its starts in five minutes, and we have to be seated.” The voice says with much sympathy, having an idea of how she must be feeling at the very moment. With a shaky hand she reaches out to open the car door, still she doesn’t say a word.
Walking down the stone pathway one foot in front of the other she stared down at her own feet to avoid, the stares she received from a few guess that arrived before she had. They probably wounded why in god’s name was she there, and if she had felt slightly embarrassed, that it wasn’t her.
Entering the beautifully decorated backyard, she and her guest take a seat in the very back row of the nicely arranged seating area, wanting to cause no attention to themselves, by the guest that had already been seated.
Everything seems to go by slowly, as if she was being slowly tortured. Every word they shared about being in love with each other was like a stab to the heart for her. He claimed that today; April 3 2010 would be the day he was to marry woman he loved more than anything in the word.
Just three years ago, she could remember, him saying to her that she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, and two years prior to that he sang that his heart beats for only her, that she’d shine brighter than anyone. He even went as far as proposing to her, but at the time she was too scared to accept the love he offered, because of her own past. Now it was like she didn’t even exist to him. They barley spoke during band time, and hardly ever spoke outside of band time.
“If there is someone here who object to this joining of Joshua Neil Farro & Jenna Lee Rice, speak now or forever hold your peace.” The priest says pulling her out of thought. She glances at her best friend who gives her hand a light squeeze. She assures her that everything is fine. The to be married couple glances out at their guest that were grateful to attend their special day. His chocolate brown eye finally land on her emerald green ones. There’s a short stare off, before it’s broken by the preacher’s words, when no abjection was made.
Finally the ceremony ends, allowing guess to move over to the reception area, and meningeal amongst themselves, though she doesn’t do much talking, She only wore a big smile and said her hello’s to people she hadn’t seen in a while.
She takes a seat at her assigned table near the back, with her friends, Taylor York, Jeremy Davis, their dates, and her best friend Taylor swift, who took the place of her date, her boyfriend who couldn’t make it. In a way she was glad her boyfriend couldn’t make it, it would seem wrong that she still had feeling for someone, who seemed not to care for her anymore.
She never understood how they had gotten there. She and him use to be the best of friends, and now they were like the worst of enemies, if not stranger’s to one another, but still she told herself that she was happy for him, and things would work it’s self out, on its own…
*****Two Years Later*****
-“It hurts, because what we were told was that they weren’t happy, they didn’t want to do this. But then when it really became about all these other things, I was very surprise and kind of felt led on. We’ve been doing this for six, seven years now. I don’t think any of this has been in vain, for any of us… and I don’t think anyone should discredit it.” – Hayley Williams
-“There’s been a lot of things said online and is sucks to know that responding online isn’t really going to help. We really wanted the opportunity to show our fans that we’re OK. The three of us are still here, we’re not going anywhere… this is our way of showing that there’s a future and we’re stoked for it” –Hayley Williams
-“The Fact that two guys left the band and then we decided not to give up, but then a year later we wrote what to me is our best album yet. Everything happens for a reason so, as cliché as it sounds, I can’t afford to look at it any differently. –Hayley Williams
You'll probably ask why didn't I post any comments Taylor and Jeremy made ;like I did Hayley's at the end of the stry, well I looked for some and couldn;t find any, and well the story is mainly about Hayley anyways.
Hope you liked it ;)
