Saving the Black Parade 11"Looks like it's my turn." Gee announced as we came walking back.
"Good luck." Ray warned him. I wondered if he knew what I had in mind now.
Gerard and I take our places.
Adrian, again, gives the countdown. Similarly to last time neither of us make a first move.
"You can have the first move." He told me probably thinking I couldn't do much damage no matter how hard I tried.
"Big mistake." I grinned. This is exactly what I wanted.
I slowly walked toward him until I was standing directly in front of him. I took one of his hands that was hanging at his side. He gave me a look of confusion, and I just smiled wider.
Thinking of the time that we visited New Jersey after I had shared my poetry on stage I took us both back to the memory.
"Why on Earth did you never get any of those published?" Gerard, known as Party Poison at this time, had asked me. I had just walked off of the stage after having read some poems.
"I'm a teenager, no one wants to hear what I have to say." I had responded.
Sing away my sins (read it cuz i said please)gimme a goodnight
just sing me one last lullaby
i just want your voice to drown out my cries tonight
eventually ill fall asleep or maybe just fall completely
but till then let me hear your voice
so rough and sweet that way it only can be
i want you to sing me to sleep just for this night out before the desert sky
im sorry for my wrongdoings
ill be going down or up or inbetween soon
it doesnt matter much to me
what matter is this moment
right here and now
your sweet symphony
of the song we wrote as kids
to kill the monsters that we would become
your tortured voice
quieting the pain for now
cause im going down or maybe up
i never got to say
i love you that is my only regret
but i guess that doesnt matter cause
ive got is this moment this last one bit of time
with you and though there is pain
im not afraid because my last sweet memory will forever be you singing me to sleep
Saving the Black Parade 10"That sounds like fun." Adrian agreed with while swinging herself off of the bed.
We all walked back out of the house to the backyard so we could spar with one another.
"Who wants to go first?" I asked.
Frank was first to answer. "I want to fight Adrian." I wasn't sure if I should be surprised by this or not. It was his chance to get back at her, but I still didn't think he would be the one to pick the fight.
"Okay." Adrian said, I could tell she was slightly unsure of how this would work out.
They both got into proper fighting stances while everyone else, including me, stood off to the side to watch.
Seeing that they were both ready, I started the countdown. "One. Two. Three." I paused "Fight!"
Frank broke into a run, clearing the short distance between him and Adrian in practically no time at all. He continued to quickly circle around her, throwing false punches. As Adrian tried to keep up with his movements, she lost her balance, and fell onto her face.
"That was familiar." Gee rema
Saving the Black Parade 9"We should probably get back to practicing guys." Ray announced.
"I've already got my telekinesis mastered though." Adrian whined.
"What about levitating?"
"I can't figure that out." She sighed.
By now I had already stalked off a little so I'd have room to try a few more things. I was still close enough to hear their conversation though. "Try thinking light." I suggested.
A couple seconds later she was floating off the ground, and it didn't look like she knew how to stop.
"Help! I'm floating away!" She yelped.
"Think heavy then." Mikey instructed her.
Another couple seconds passed, before she plummeted out of the sky, and landed with a loud smack.
"Ow." Frank chuckled a little.
I ran over to where she had fell. "You okay?" I asked a little worried.
"Yeah." I helped her up, and she looked just fine.
"How about you try to think of something that has a good balance of light and heavy." I offered.
She nodded, and closed her eyes in concentration. It wasn't long until she floated off the gr
