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 protection6PENANAGPkPMKfGut

"I think it's time you bring your Uncle in for a conference." My teacher said.copyright protection6PENANAbss1oimp3M

"Why?" I asked.copyright protection6PENANAVK9O2tDPpE

"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 protection6PENANAR6ucWgWbXq

I sighed. "I don't think my Uncle can come."copyright protection6PENANAE9S7ahpwGs

"Why not?" She asked.copyright protection6PENANAjCdsrgW45l

" Uncle is very busy with his fishing shop."copyright protection6PENANAIXsdaot6zq

"I'm sure he can take 5-10 minutes out of his store to come and talk to me."copyright protection6PENANAwezplJGKgn

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 protection6PENANAdz0q2rHYvM

"Nash! What the hell!? What happened to the fish!?" Uncle shouted.copyright protection6PENANAkeKMrUbV1K

"What do you mean?" I asked as I stood in the shop with a broom.copyright protection6PENANAlyZVXkEE5V

Uncle came out with a fish that fell out of the bucket that day when I met Cy.copyright protection6PENANA1ju1JxtqwY

"This! What happened!?" He asked as he held out the fish to me.copyright protection6PENANAdQdYDFSOAU

I sighed. "You wouldn't believe me..."copyright protection6PENANAzWszRpTw4Z

"Try me."copyright protection6PENANAr5iW72uAt0

"Okay. Some guys walked by and tripped me." I said.copyright protection6PENANAzGRNFusyj3

"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 protection6PENANAsTZUsRkmno

"Nash! What's this I hear about a teacher conference!?" Uncle shouted at me as we both stood in the kitchen.copyright protection6PENANAgMQ7zvC14W

"Oh...that..."copyright protection6PENANA5wP4rhVLEj

"She tells me that you're in danger of failing the grade and have to go to summer school!?"copyright protection6PENANAaZ8FDUgkat

I avoided his gaze.copyright protection6PENANAurflyOQbQU

"What's with you these days? Is your head in the clouds?"copyright protection6PENANA7VrX0SfVET

I didn't say anything.copyright protection6PENANAfPTnuxiLRs

"ANSWER ME!"copyright protection6PENANAelUuGsjxE9

"Yeah well WHAT IF IT IS!?" I shouted back.copyright protection6PENANAsM5UJ5MY1r

"Don't you raise your voice at me, boy!"copyright protection6PENANARggKELhWw9

"WHY NOT!? WHY DO YOU CARE ABOUT ANYTHING I DO!?!" I shouted then ran out the door.copyright protection6PENANApKvjfcMyJq


"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 protection6PENANAlMbCxQnPMT

"I wish you were here mom and dad..."copyright protection6PENANAYcEtvTFirp

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 protection6PENANAJ9CWWJSQDN

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 protection6PENANALYzXA6NYVA

"You're foolish for doing this." He started.copyright protection6PENANARUMvoip3BQ

"We should take him inside." Cy said.copyright protection6PENANAtkZ5hWP9Ms

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 protection6PENANAXxrwv2Di0z

"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 protection6PENANASRuFnSYMVz

"Why did you do it?" He asked, sitting on my bed.copyright protection6PENANADpUCvbzklm

"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 protection6PENANANiUePpgtHg

"I wish you would've told me."copyright protection6PENANA2A8xgvpeil

I nodded. "I know but I didn't want to become a burden to you."copyright protection6PENANAOVKJygV7Ag

Cy shook his head. "I don't care. I don't like seeing my friends hurt."copyright protection6PENANAuoyoCoNSRv

I smiled softly.copyright protection6PENANA9U6hrmNQB5

"Well, I should get going." He said, standing up. I quickly grabbed his hand.copyright protection6PENANAcq1X9zd4HO

"Stay with me...please?" I pleaded.copyright protection6PENANAlbcUAOioHa

Cy watched me then nodded with a smile. "Sure."copyright protection6PENANATQ4Z8vmVmY

I slowly sat up. "Lemme go get you something to sleep on."copyright protection6PENANA1zo2wyCJDj

Cy stopped me. "Lay back down. I'll get it."copyright protection6PENANAxYvKT5ybug

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 protection6PENANAln6qnfWJbj
