They've said it before
They'll say it again
But that is for another time
// Mark's P.O.V //
I didn't wash off the blood, I really didn't care. But I knew I wasn't okay. Mad at the fact my dad's an addict. Ryan takes pills, he thinks it cures sadness. I've bottled it all up inside. But I let go of Sean, walking back into the horrid bathroom. I cleaned it up and realized I was shirtless. I shut the door halfway and undressed.
I turned on the warm water and heard a faint knock at the door. I was still in boxers, so I let him come in.
"Yes? Come in."
"I have…a-a suggestion…"
I was all ears for his suggestion. Listening while the water ran.
"Maybe you should relax…and have a nice bath.."
I took the offer, thinking that might be a good idea.
"Well…I have been on edge…"
I nodded as Sean left the room. I got my phone and played music as the tub filled with hot water. Sean left me this little plastic container that contained coloured hearts. They were meant for baths, so I picked a random colour. It was aqua.
"Heh…bathing in the souls of the innocent.."
Woah, what?! Nothing of that satanic stuff, just Undertale references. Yeah…yeah..
I set the heart shaped item in the hot water, it immediately started dissolving into the water and making the water turn aqua. It also smelled nice. I slipped my boxers off my hips and got in the sudsy, soapy water. I relaxed as the water touched my skin, the warmth filling me with comfort while music broke silence.
Ranging with music from Three Days Grace, Hollywood Undead, Fort Minor, Skillet, Eminem, Linkin Park, and Breaking Benjamin; I hummed along to the songs. Currently "Landmine" by Three Days Grace was playing. So I sang along.
"And I can't hold much longer, keeps getting stronger. It's only a matter of time. I'm living like a landmine waiting to explode. Tickin' like a time bomb, ready to go. I'm a danger to myself, and everybody else I'm, living like a landmine. Waiting to explode. I'm ready to go, I'm ready to go."
I heard the door creak open and Sean's head peek in.
"Your singing is beautiful…"
"I'll go now…"
He left. I stayed until I felt like getting out, which was about an hour. I emptied the tub and got out, putting a towel around my waist. I went to my room, getting clothes on. It was still morning and I realized I had to go back to work tomorrow.
I sighed and walked into the living room, Sean was sitting on the couch. I sat beside him and held his hand, intertwining my fingers with his. I pecked his cheek and smiled. I knew I had to tell him.
"Jack…"548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNU9rTz8GRP
It caught his attention. He looked at me. 548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOMwhjVL1Y4
"I have work tomorrow…and I don't want you to be angry at me.."548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhiTz9vDx7O
"Why would I be angry?"548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxbEqWNH8h1
"And?"548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwfn2IMDjnv
I shrugged and squeezed his hand. It was still morning time, but I wasn't hungry. I heard my phone go off, it was just the changing of songs. This time, I was flustered when Sean looked at the phone. I had renamed all of the songs, but why did I have to rename this one?548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrge8ShMguL
"Sean and I" by Hollywood Undead548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡatpzZH0law
It was really "Gangsta Sexy" by Hollywood Undead. I blushed when he smirked at me. 548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiBgPVuan4G
"Oh?"548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhJAnqNJaRm
"Sh-Shut up…"548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHeD3vddBij
I buried my face in my hand, flustered. I could feel my heart fluttering. When the song ended, another song came on. It was another Hollywood Undead song. This time "Black Dahlia."
"Sorry" by Hollywood Undead548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEYC1FHKTHn
It remedied me of how much I had to apologize for. I looked away and sighed. I knew Sean was concerned by the way he held me in his arms.548Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ41hBMBMT6L
