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 protection13PENANAkKYvyhQjtp

"I think it's time you bring your Uncle in for a conference." My teacher said.copyright protection13PENANAHQuvw95jCG

"Why?" I asked.copyright protection13PENANA4W8JiQQqtJ

"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 protection13PENANABNuzj2Raml

I sighed. "I don't think my Uncle can come."copyright protection13PENANAz4c3zIcF1P

"Why not?" She asked.copyright protection13PENANAl5LuO3lEuO

" Uncle is very busy with his fishing shop."copyright protection13PENANAo5CTFWWw6i

"I'm sure he can take 5-10 minutes out of his store to come and talk to me."copyright protection13PENANASFn4JXMWCN

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 protection13PENANALYTwtIAOn5

"Nash! What the hell!? What happened to the fish!?" Uncle shouted.copyright protection13PENANADLafFPbBmi

"What do you mean?" I asked as I stood in the shop with a broom.copyright protection13PENANATeXhjHe5DR

Uncle came out with a fish that fell out of the bucket that day when I met Cy.copyright protection13PENANAToPMVjuw7R

"This! What happened!?" He asked as he held out the fish to me.copyright protection13PENANABKDM0iCcUZ

I sighed. "You wouldn't believe me..."copyright protection13PENANAuOes5x9jCM

"Try me."copyright protection13PENANAawb0i7jNDq

"Okay. Some guys walked by and tripped me." I said.copyright protection13PENANAFfbi1cBDov

"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 protection13PENANACSjRkpouI1

"Nash! What's this I hear about a teacher conference!?" Uncle shouted at me as we both stood in the kitchen.copyright protection13PENANACitOBu0d8o

"Oh...that..."copyright protection13PENANAJLh3CBs06a

"She tells me that you're in danger of failing the grade and have to go to summer school!?"copyright protection13PENANA1n3zQWoq82

I avoided his gaze.copyright protection13PENANAEKk7yWCy9K

"What's with you these days? Is your head in the clouds?"copyright protection13PENANAXTveW8Qo9W

I didn't say anything.copyright protection13PENANAzbkDKaz9BH

"ANSWER ME!"copyright protection13PENANAbgswn0sZzC

"Yeah well WHAT IF IT IS!?" I shouted back.copyright protection13PENANAKwvgKsoBRx

"Don't you raise your voice at me, boy!"copyright protection13PENANAxqIR3s2CBE

"WHY NOT!? WHY DO YOU CARE ABOUT ANYTHING I DO!?!" I shouted then ran out the door.copyright protection13PENANAkNUMjiNMhm


"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 protection13PENANAeNFXFJqIl2

"I wish you were here mom and dad..."copyright protection13PENANAmGPhs8zfVR

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 protection13PENANACkTwfbaDSq

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 protection13PENANAR6dw4SfuAB

"You're foolish for doing this." He started.copyright protection13PENANAwXileKuO0q

"We should take him inside." Cy said.copyright protection13PENANAFDKya0KkDC

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 protection13PENANALuJY1NRhhs

"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 protection13PENANATNpb9EWEtX

"Why did you do it?" He asked, sitting on my bed.copyright protection13PENANA48BOHLPr6s

"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 protection13PENANA4RXNQYAHgS

"I wish you would've told me."copyright protection13PENANAaaGAlPfitI

I nodded. "I know but I didn't want to become a burden to you."copyright protection13PENANAgxRRmzDb0J

Cy shook his head. "I don't care. I don't like seeing my friends hurt."copyright protection13PENANAE5BBSrAt9Q

I smiled softly.copyright protection13PENANAlj11UnR9Fl

"Well, I should get going." He said, standing up. I quickly grabbed his hand.copyright protection13PENANARWTJNfiqrj

"Stay with me...please?" I pleaded.copyright protection13PENANAa5oLGhdgLm

Cy watched me then nodded with a smile. "Sure."copyright protection13PENANA77G89Bv0Kb

I slowly sat up. "Lemme go get you something to sleep on."copyright protection13PENANAlC7elVuDmV

Cy stopped me. "Lay back down. I'll get it."copyright protection13PENANAWw1liHCvYn

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 protection13PENANAS6vzeEaKEU
