Curse words will be filled in with one of (*)
Complicated by Avril Lavinge.


*Saturday*
    The cold wind blew against you, your (h/c) hair blowing into your face. You stood on the ledge ready to take the last jump.
    This was it, you were done.  What was the point? 
    You let your feelings out and let the knew how you felt. Yet, did they do anything but listen. Did he? 
    How you did you get into this situation?
    Lets back up about.....two days ago...on a Thursday to be exact....
*Thursday*
    You were just walking to your school. Just strolling by nice huge houses or should I say mansions. You were walking from the only on the corner of the street. Your neighborhood was a rather rich neighborhood. A lot of businessmen, lawyers, doctors, and formers lived here. Your father was a top business man and you were his third daughter. Your older brother and sister were next in line to run your fathers' business and you were dead last. If you got a A in something he would say, 'Your sister got higher in that assignment.' or 'Your brother was a strait A student.' You constantly were compared to them, it was like nothing could please your father. 
    Enough about home problem's, let's get to your school.
    "(NAME!)" One of your two friends glomped you. 
    "Audrey! Get off me." you pushed her off.
    "Hey there, (Name.)" your optimistic friend, Peter, joined you two. You guys had been best friends since middle school and had stuck together ever since. There was just one problem for you guys...
    "Hey, freaks!" 
    "Oh boy." Peter frowned."Here she comes." Audrey rolled her eyes. "Great." you mumbled.
    "Hello,  freaks. Why are you here?" Calli, THE most b*tchiest girl in the whole high school. Your very own bully that just wanted to make your life a living hell.
    "Class." you responded coolly.
    "Class? Which one, the one you've been failing?" she held out your report card. 
    "How the h*ll did you?" 
    "I have my ways." she sneered.
    "Oh! Poor (Name.) What if the school found out about this." Jamie came out of nowhere and read over the paper.
    "Give me that!" you tried to snatch it but Sarah just tripped you. 
    "Nope." you were now on the ground.
    "What a shame. If you kept your grades up then you could have made valedictorian. Too bad." Kim mocked you.
    "How dare you!" you growled. You were trying to keep your cool, you wouldn't let these b*tches get the satisfaction of bringing you down. Yet you felt tears run down your cheeks. You lost. You failed.
    "See you around~!" they all cackled and left you in front of the entire school, which just heard everything.
    "Here you go, dearie." Audrey handed you a tissue but you took off bolting to the roof.


(Gilbert's Point of View.)
    "How about this song?" Francais gave me this sh*tty song from France.
    "No thanks."
    "How about this?" Antonio turned on Shakira and started to dance, attracting more fangirls. Just what we need-not.
    "I'm a guy." 
    "You need a song." Francais said.
    "I know. I need a song that's so awesome that it will embody my awesomeness." 
    "Are trying to impress some girl?" Toni asked me.
    "No. The girls here are-"
    "Beautiful." Francais suggested. 
    "No. Their a bunch of rabid brats." I leaned against the tree in the courtyard. Gosh! It was so ridicoulsly boring today. Same girls try to hit on me, same teachers tell me boring stuff and same stupid school. 
    "Where is she?!" a voice yelled out.  It was that freak artistic girl, Audrey and her boyfriend Peter. "I can't believe they did that to her." 
    "Did what to who?" I asked.
    "None of your d*mn business!" We walked up to her and surrounded her. 
    "What happened?" 
    "(Name) was humiliated in the front courtyard this morning and then took off." she said. 
    "What?!" 
    (Name). My awesomest friend besides Tony and Francais. We were so close in the 7th grade then we kinda drifted apart. Now I think she  hates me for leaving her behind like that.  I saw her many times from afar but I never could really talk to her. Every time I've tried some fangirl gets in my way, especially Calli. The worst is that she always bullied, I don't get why though. She just brushed them off, not caring. That's one of the things I loved about her, she was strong. She so awesome and that beautiful hair and those eyes and her-
   "Yo, Gil! You there?" Audrey bonked me in the head.
    "The awesome me is present." I snapped back into reality. 
    "Stop being a egotistical idoit." she growled. "C'mon Pete." 
    "Harsh." I said to my self but those words were true.
(Back to you)
    Chaos. That's all your life was now. You looked down at the sidewalk. Oh, how much you wanted to jump and get it over with. Nobody would miss you. You would just be a ghost in their lives. Yet, you didn't want to just die like this. You wanted to go out with a bang, but how?
    "What happened?" you looked down to see Gilbert asking Audrey. 
    He was once your best friend but then he left you in the dirt for popularity. You missed the 'Prussian' boy you had once known.. His reckless attitude, his loud mouth, his smile, his annoying laugh, his red ruby eye- Why were you thinking of these things. That was over and done with but you heart didn't say that. Yeah, you had mixed feelings for him. A lot of them. Did he not care? Did he not see? Did he not understand? You made your decision as you watched him space out. You were going to take the last leap and you knew exactly how you were going to do it. The talent show was in two days and that was when you say good bye.
(Later that night)
    You quietly entered the house.
    "(Name.)" you fathers stern voice called from the living room. SH*T! he was home early.
    "Yes, Father." you squeaked out.
    "Sit." he gestured to a chair. "Why were you skipping?" strait to the point as always.
    "I-I was not feeling well so I went up to the roof for some fresh air." 
    "What else did you do up there?"
    "Just thinking."
    "Not lighting things up or hanging around with young men?"
    "No! Why would you think things like that?!"
    "Then explain these grades?!" he pulled out your report card and showed it to you. "I-I-I...dad I can-"
    "No you don't. Tomorrow go to school come strait home and pack your bags. I'm kicking you out until you get your grades up. Now go to your room!" You bolted to your room and slammed the door.  You hid your muffled sobs. Your world was truly crashing down around you. You mother dies, your sibling leave you with that monster and now this.  You cried yourself to sleep. Only two more days and this would be over.


*Friday*
    You walked down the street, a little early this time. You wanted to practice this one song and you needed it. You hadn't sang ever since your mother died.  You finally made it to the music room where the grand piano was. 
    Cracking your knuckles, you started to play.
(Gilberts Point of View)
    I dried my head with the towel. I just came from the showers after a early gym session. It was eerily quiet in the mornings. Not even the janitor was here.
    I walked slowly down the music room trying to get my stuff that I had stashed by the piano room. I put my hand on the door as I heard music playing. 
    Who could be here a this time?
    I opened a door to see (Name) playing a sad tune. One that wanted to make you cry. God! she looked so depressed and sad. Where was the happy girl that tried to teach me how to play?
    She finally ended the song on a sad, lonely note. That was wen I accidentally knocked down the stack of stands. Awesome Gil. Awesome.
    She turned to see me there. 
    "Gil?" she used my old nickname.
    "(Name!) That was so Awesome!" I sat down next to her on the bench. She was blushing like crazy. 
    "H-hi. I should just get going." she was about to leave when I grabbed her arm. I don't want to let her go.
    "I just wanted to tell you I'm sorry." I blurted out.
    "I forgive you, Gil." she gave me a sad smile and walked away. "And I'm sorry, too." set down a letter on the bench.
    What the h*ll did she mean.
    "Wait!" She closed the door. "Ich liebe dich." I said lamely into nothing. Yeah, I was in love with (Name.) Ever since I met her. Actually it was around 5th grade but still I loved her. My heart just beated faster and I get tie toughed around her. She was the most awesomest person beside's me. But how?
    Saturday night. That's when I'm going to tell her how I feel. 
(Back to You)
    You walked away with tears in your eyes. He just had to say he was sorry. That idiot. You wanted to hug him right there but what if it was just a game? What makes you think he wouldn't crush your heart more? 
    You went to find Audrey and Peter. You told them what happened and Audrey let you stay at her place.
(Walking to Audrey's house)
    You two walked, chatting with each other.
    "Hey (Name!)" Calli and her gang walked up behind you. "How was the talk with your father?" 
    "Calli....can I tell you something?" you were sick of it. You were going to show this person not to mess with you.
    "What?"
    "Don't try to be offended. I think you are a selfish b*tch and s*ut that just takes pleasure in other peoples misery. You know what? You should see your own grades." you pulled out your actual report card. One that had strait A's and hers. "You seem to need a tutor. Bye the way, screw off and leave us alone. We have better things to do than be here with you." You told her off and continued walking.
    "Go (Name!)" Audrey cheered.
*Saturday*
    You looked at the outfit Audrey had picked. A sequin tank top, black skinny jeans, and a nice leather jacket. You in all ways looked sexy.
    'Calm yourself (Name.)'
    Your prepared yourself to go out onto the stage. 
    You walked out to be met with the glares coming from Calli and her crew. 
    "Hey guys." you said nervously into the mic.
    The music started up.
    
Uh huh, life's like this
Uh huh, uh huh, that's the way it is
'Cause life's like this
Uh huh, uh huh that's the way it is
Chill out, what you yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if you could only let it be
You will see
I like you the way you are
When we're drivin' in your car
And you're talking to me one on one
But you've become...

The crown loved it. They whistled and sand along. Much to the anger of Calli.

Somebody else 'round everyone else
You're watching your back like you can't relax
You're tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me

You looked around for Gil. I couldn't be that hard. He had white hair for crying out loud. You finally spotted him. He started at you in complete awe.

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else
Gets me frustrated
Life's like this
You, you fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get and you turn it into 
honesty
You promised me I'm never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no
You come over unannounced
Dressed up like you're somethin' else
Where you are ain't where it's at
You see you're making me laugh out
When you strike your pose
Take off all your preppy clothes
You know you're not fooling anyone
When you've become...
Somebody else 'round everyone else
You're watchin' your back like you can't relax
You're tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me

He held the letter in his hand. What were you doing? He had to stop you. He just couldn't lose you. Screw popularity. He just couldn't let you slip away. 
    "Go get her." Francais pushed him.
    "You won't get another chance." Antonio shoved people out of the way.

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else
Gets me frustrated
Life's like this
You, you fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get and you turn it into 
honesty
You promised me I'm never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no
Chill out, what you yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if you could only let it be
You will see...
Somebody else 'round everyone else
You're watching your back like you can't relax
You're trying to be cool,
You look like a fool to me
Tell me
Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else
Gets me frustrated
Life's like this
You, you fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get and you turn it into 
honesty
You promised me I'm never gonna find you fake it
No no
Why do you have to go and make things so complicated? (yeah, yeah)
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else
Gets me frustrated
Life's like this
You, you fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get and you turn it into 
honesty
You promised me I'm never gonna find you fake it
No no no

"I think we have a winner." the host lifted your arm and the crowd went wild. "(Name!)" the crowd kept cheering for a good five minutes.
    (Name!)" you saw Gil trying to make his way to you. "(Name!)" you turned backstage and ran to the roof. You couldn't say goodbye to him. Not like this.
    So there you were about to jump. 
    'Goodbye cruel world.' you smiled to yourself. You've watched way too much Scooby Doo.
    You grabbed the railing a little tighter.
    "(Name!)" somebody tackled you, throwing you to the ground. "What the h*ll were you thinking?" Gilbert pinned your arms to both sides of you head. 
    "Let me go, Gil!" 
    "Nein. Not this time. I stupidly walked away and I should have stayed. I'm the reason you were about to kill yourself. I should have stuck up for you and I should have stopped you from doing this." he looked down into your (e/c) eyes.  "The thing is, (Name), Ich liebe dich. I have for a long time." he leaned in to kiss you. It was a sweet and confident. Just like him.
   "Gil, I love you too." you said after you broke the kiss for a thing called air. "Could you get off me now?" 
   "Do I have to?" he whined
   "Gil!" 
   "Okay." he held you close. "(Name?) Will you do the honor of being my Frau?"
   "Let me think about it." you looked up into his ruby eyes, "Yes." and kissed him again.
   "Awesome."
