So I went back to school the next day and I stayed there like my Uncle wanted but I wasn't happy to hear what my first period teacher wanted to talk about with me.copyright protection17PENANACoQ1MqZEvU

"I think it's time you bring your Uncle in for a conference." My teacher said.copyright protection17PENANAO2S82cYKFl

"Why?" I asked.copyright protection17PENANAwpnuiyPxbx

"Because you've been missing school too much and i'm afraid that if you don't try to get your grades up by the time the semester ends, you'll have to go to summer school."copyright protection17PENANAWOVMPIcOmI

I sighed. "I don't think my Uncle can come."copyright protection17PENANAJbLBkNOiyu

"Why not?" She asked.copyright protection17PENANAD5U0zcyoJK

"Because...my Uncle is very busy with his fishing shop."copyright protection17PENANAWGzSsoAFdX

"I'm sure he can take 5-10 minutes out of his store to come and talk to me."copyright protection17PENANAnW99ytWmMv

I pouted. I couldn't think of any other excuse so I just left the subject alone. That's pretty much how my day went. More kids kept teasing me of course but since I was more worried about my Uncle having a talk with my teacher, I barely listened to the teasing. And then when I got home, things weren't any easier.copyright protection17PENANARpALqaXZzH

"Nash! What the hell!? What happened to the fish!?" Uncle shouted.copyright protection17PENANAKvnjoQIYvV

"What do you mean?" I asked as I stood in the shop with a broom.copyright protection17PENANAWTS52qzZNl

Uncle came out with a fish that fell out of the bucket that day when I met Cy.copyright protection17PENANAuEL5pbfnbO

"This! What happened!?" He asked as he held out the fish to me.copyright protection17PENANA4VkseIiWGO

I sighed. "You wouldn't believe me..."copyright protection17PENANASDHKIKbhJY

"Try me."copyright protection17PENANADeDoj3zyqK

"Okay. Some guys walked by and tripped me." I said.copyright protection17PENANAmvGGXUpgR5

"That's it? THAT'S your excuse? I ought have you go out and catch more fish." He said then sighed. "Forget it. Just go back to sweeping." He said then disappeared into the locker room. I frowned then silently went back to sweeping.copyright protection17PENANA4JJMurwFJg

"Nash! What's this I hear about a teacher conference!?" Uncle shouted at me as we both stood in the kitchen.copyright protection17PENANA6JhMqfHPvy

"Oh...that..."copyright protection17PENANAVAiEmN6SsQ

"She tells me that you're in danger of failing the grade and have to go to summer school!?"copyright protection17PENANA87dDpYqLjN

I avoided his gaze.copyright protection17PENANAxqwPcW5TLA

"What's with you these days? Is your head in the clouds?"copyright protection17PENANAsGbLlxyrq1

I didn't say anything.copyright protection17PENANAhz8ucytDjN

"ANSWER ME!"copyright protection17PENANAqRdWHpTMjE

"Yeah well WHAT IF IT IS!?" I shouted back.copyright protection17PENANAnLlywG558w

"Don't you raise your voice at me, boy!"copyright protection17PENANA6p5eUhNnU7

"WHY NOT!? WHY DO YOU CARE ABOUT ANYTHING I DO!?!" I shouted then ran out the door.copyright protection17PENANAakYnhFNas7


"YEAH? WELL I AM!" I shouted back and ran all the way to the docks. It was late at night so nobody was really around which is perfect because I need time to myself. I walked over to the edge of the dock and stared into the water. Things just seemed to be getting worse and worse for me and I don't know how to stop it. I started to feel tears run down my face. I sniffed and rubbed my eyes.copyright protection17PENANAZBp4PjmDGg

"I wish you were here mom and dad..."copyright protection17PENANAKRBIeSo23R

Then, without thinking, I let myself fall into the water. I didn't struggle or anything. I just let the water take me into its clutches and quite frankly, I didn't want to be saved. I slowly closed my eyes and waited. My lungs started to burn from lack of oxygen but I didn't move or do anything. I just...kept floating. I felt the darkness taking me when someone jumped into the water and grabbed me. The person pulled me out of the water and laid me down on the dock. Then the person started to put presser on my chest and give me mouth to mouth.copyright protection17PENANA9SG234tVxY

After ten tries, I coughed up water and slowly opened up my eyes to see Cy. I blinked my eyes as I stared at him. He helped me sit up and that's when my Uncle came running up to us. I was waiting for Uncle to start shouting at me but he didn't. He just stood there and stared at me.copyright protection17PENANAVxzkBpEY2k

"You're foolish for doing this." He started.copyright protection17PENANAeMcQvqJUtM

"We should take him inside." Cy said.copyright protection17PENANALDFrGJv9E3

Uncle didn't object. Cy and Uncle took me back to the house. Cy carried me upstairs to my room and laid me on my bed. Then he started to take my shoes and socks off. Uncle sighed as he watched me.copyright protection17PENANA7zAHUc6ya8

"I'm going to have a talk with your teacher and see what she has planned for you. YOU, however, stay in bed and get some rest okay?" He said then walked out of my room. That's when Cy turned to me and started to ask me questions.copyright protection17PENANATpV5fqwZk0

"Why did you do it?" He asked, sitting on my bed.copyright protection17PENANAL5Drxka3tP

"I couldn't take it anymore. My Uncle keeps yelling at me, kids at school keep picking on me. I couldn't take it." I explained.copyright protection17PENANA6BpHijToS3

"I wish you would've told me."copyright protection17PENANAxMssSISpHd

I nodded. "I know but I didn't want to become a burden to you."copyright protection17PENANAptj3VQn5UR

Cy shook his head. "I don't care. I don't like seeing my friends hurt."copyright protection17PENANAV0skHKEA9w

I smiled softly.copyright protection17PENANAEGj78bQ1Ay

"Well, I should get going." He said, standing up. I quickly grabbed his hand.copyright protection17PENANAe02x3Xnr3h

"Stay with me...please?" I pleaded.copyright protection17PENANAiYiKi0vWBE

Cy watched me then nodded with a smile. "Sure."copyright protection17PENANAtflMntYduz

I slowly sat up. "Lemme go get you something to sleep on."copyright protection17PENANAMIzOgDLE4P

Cy stopped me. "Lay back down. I'll get it."copyright protection17PENANAVmNe76eC3P

I did what he said and watched him leave me room. Tonight was the first time I've ever let someone sleep over at my house. In MY bedroom. It was pretty exciting and comforting. Cy laid on blankets next to my bed. We both said goodbye and I went to sleep. Though, as I was sleeping, I didn't know that Cy had gotten up and left my house in the middle of the night.copyright protection17PENANAhx5Ckt6iHB
