EpisodeEdit

Nathan woke up in a loud panic. He hadn’t got much sleep since the party and when he does sleep he’s always been awakened by flashes of that night. It was hard for him to remember what happened and in the back of his mind the fear of remembering was scarier because he knew he’d have to face with the memory.

After a shower and a change of clothes he looked at himself in the mirror aimlessly staring off as he brushed his teeth. “You about ready to go son” he dad asked poking his head into the bathroom. “Five more minutes” Nathan replied emotionless as he rinsed his mouth with mouthwash.  With another sigh he looked into the mirror one more time and forced that broken look away.

Once he arrived to the school he saw all the Halloween décor. Small plastic graves sat in the grass of the school’s lawn all surrounding a scarecrow. “Looks like they are really in the spirit this year” Nathan’s dad smiled though Nathan only rolled his eyes and sneered at the sight. “Remember take it easy okay” Nathan’s dad said placing his hands on his son’s shoulder as he stopped the car to let him out. In that moment Nathan felt a slight sense of release but he hid the emotion to himself and exited the car with his oxygen tank.

Nathan VoiceOver:

Is it really Halloween again? God what a drag. There is nothing funny about Halloween. It’s just another day of the year to me. Sluts get an extra excuse to be sluts and nerds pretend to be what they aren’t for a day. Honestly there are scarier things in this world. I’ve seen a porn parody of sister, sister and let me just tell you…. There was nothing funny about scissor, scissor.

“Sup Darth Vader” Alison shouted interrupting Nathan mid-thought.

“Hello Alison” Nathan sighed as he rolled his eyes slightly annoyed yet still somewhat happy to see her first.

“How are you holding up” she asked raising a brow as him.

“What’s that supposed to mean” he demanded sharply, “I’m fine why wouldn’t I be?”

“I’m just saying is Halloween and we all know how you can get” she joked. Instead of bicker back and forth Nathan simply picked up the pace and stormed off leaving her with one last reply, “I’m fine okay.” It wasn’t for Alison to pry but she could tell something was wrong even if he wouldn’t admit it.

With a staggering motion Matt walked down the halls of Nicaragua High School. Matt could cry knowing it was now Monday. Ever since Alex joined the glee club Matt didn’t want him to feel completely isolated so he took on the job of becoming his friend. Everything was fine until last night when he snuck out to have drinks and didn’t get back him until four in the morning. “I just need to sleep for a bit more” he said to himself throwing a Halloween flyer into his face to block the lights.

On his way to the choir room Matt spotted Alex and Zach bickering but over what he couldn’t catch. “Hey guys” Matt smiled as he approached the two.

“Yeah Hey Matt I’ll check you guys in the choir room.” Zach said coldly though giving one more glare towards Alex before walking away.

“What was all that about” Matt asked

“He’s just mad because I shaded Mariah Carey” Alex replied throwing back some aspirin and orange juice. 

“I see I’m holding up better than you at least” Matt joked “how’s the hang over?”

“My head is killing my, my throat is oddly dry, and I feel like I’m about ready to hurl. Oh, yeah, and I’m still just a bit drunk from last night’s party.” Alex replied chugging the rest of the orange juice in the bottle.

“Don’t worry I think I hurled enough in the parking lot for the both of us” Matt countered as they both laughed and made their way down the hall when Matt caught the last part of Principle Shelly’s conversation.

“This is awful” she cried out “how could they do this to us last-minute.”

“Is everything okay” Matt asked.

“The band we hired for the schools Halloween Party canceled on us last-minute now I have to break the news to the committee” she explained shaking her head in disbelieve.

Matt’s eyes grew wide as the light in his head went off. “The glee club can do it!” he shouted. “We can do it for half the cost so it wouldn’t be a problem.” At this point Matt was desperate he needed this win to prove to the glee club he was more than just another number but he was also doing this in hopes of winning back Maya who didn’t seem to give much thought about him ever since her raise to the top of the food chain. Principle Shelly looked into the boy’s eyes. “Fine. The Note-Worthy can perform” she smiled.

In that moment Matt felt on top of the world. Alex even high-fived him. “Oh!” he reminded, “Also the Note-Worthy can use this as a fundraiser since the school system won’t fund it.” Principle Shelly sighed and nodded in agreement with the boy’s demands with only one remark to be had. “Fine. The Note-Worthy can use this as an opportunity to raise money for their club but you must get it approved by head of the Halloween Party committee.” 

As she walked away Matt stood in the hallway frozen in fear. “What the hell is wrong with you” Alex asked raising a brow to the boy.

“Do you not know who the head of the committee is” Matt responded as he gently banged his head into the lockers.

“Really dude” Alex replied “Do I look like I know who it is”

With all his might Matt turned his head to see a girl talking and laughing with her friends. Every second of staring at her reminded him of the hell he went through last year and it made him feel guilty all over again. “It’s my ex-girlfriend Gina!”

Inside the choir room some of the Note-Worthy members were dressing the room up to fit the Halloween season. Lily, Sydney, and Zach were all hanging fake spider webs along the walls and ceiling. Both girls weaving the webs as Zach tried to show off his masculinity with his lack of fear of heights. Angelika and Becca were placing funny spooky themed stickers on the walls while Maya bossed them around while Joe and Kyle talked their ideas over. Though it was kind of hard for Joe to concentrate with all his thoughts on how he would explain Rick to Lily.

“What’s going on” Kyle asked leaning over the piano. Joe snapped back into reality. “What are you talking about there’s nothing going on.” Kyle rolled his eyes and playfully sighed. “Are we really playing this game” he said keeping his voice low enough that only Joe would hear, “You and Lily are literally conjoined twins half of the time and for the last few days things seems….off.” Joe honestly had no words for Kyle because he knew it only lead to him adding on more lies when it was the last thing he wanted to do.

Once everyone was in the choir room and socializing Mrs. Clarke cheerfully came into the room clapping to gain everyone’s attention. “Okay everyone let’s get down to business. We’ve got a few weeks before sectionals and every minute we spend now will be used perfecting what we already have”, she announced to the group of teens.

“Yeah Mrs. Clarke” Lily said softly sitting up in her seat on the front row, “We’ve all been singing together for a year now I doubt we will have a problem at sectionals.” Everyone nodded in agreement.

“I wouldn’t say everyone” Alison added taking one look over at Maya and her cheerleader lackeys Becca and the newly added Angelika.

“Excuse you Venus D-Light” Maya shouted jumping from her seat though Matt picked her up and sat her down in the seat next to him.

“I swear if they don’t shut up or make out I’m going to die pretty soon” Alex sighed holding his hands over his face.

“Seriously can we don’t do this right now? Also you guys JUST got back in the glee club!” Lily added.

Mrs. Clarke just stood there shaking her head as everyone were at each other’s neck. For a moment she was about to intercede but it seemed everyone had calmed the situation for her. “You’re right Lily and I have no doubt that we aren’t a fine oiled machine but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t prepare for the worst. That way of thinking could cost us everything” Mrs. Clarke explained leaning back onto the Piano.

Matt stood up from his seat looking around at all his fellow members as he made his way down to Mrs. Clarke. “Sorry to interrupt but I think I have the perfect Idea for how we can get some extra practice” he said trying to hide his excitement. “So Alex and I overheard Principle Shelly talking about how she needed a replacement for the Halloween Dance this weekend and we convinced her to let us perform! And as a bonus we can use it as a fundraiser to help out the glee club”

All of the member cheered over the good news. Everyone but Joe who had his own news to share. “Well it’s funny you say that when Kyle and I had the same idea” he said pulling Kyle to the front of the class with him.

“Yeah” Kyle stuttered not fully okay with being thrown into the spotlight so last minute, “We had the same idea a few nights ago but we were going to pull everyone aside before we dropped the news.”

Matt was ecstatic. He loved the idea of being a part of this with Joe and Kyle, but he always felt like he was on the outside of the glee club looking in for a while now. He knew he couldn’t do it all alone since someone had to talk to Gina and it couldn’t be him as still felt guilty for how things ended between the two of them. “That’s great!” he sang moving in between the two of them and placing his arms around their shoulders, “we can do this as a team!” True he has alternative motives. Maybe he should have spoken to her himself but he couldn’t risk letting the team down so Joe and Kyle would be able to get through to her.

“I smell a musical coming on” Kyle spoke gleefully running over to the band. “HIT IT!” Kyle gave a devilish grin as the music started instantly getting into the Halloween spirit.

 

Kyle:
It's astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes it's toll
But listen closely

Joe:
Not for very much longer

Kyle:
I've got to keep control

Matt:
I remember doing the Time Warp
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me

Matt with Joe:
And the void would be calling

All at once the other members of the glee club jumped out of
their seats and joined in on the number while Nathan sat and idly watched from
the back row of the glee club.

The Note-Worthy:
Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Zach:
It's just a jump to the left

The Note-Worthy:
And then a step to the right

Zach:
Put your hands on your hips

The Note-Worthy:
And bring your knees in tight
But it's a pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane

Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Lily:
It's so dreamy
Oh, fantasy, free me
So you can't see me
No, not at all

Joe:
In another dimension
With voyeuristic intentions
Well secluded
Oh, I'll see it all

Kyle:
With a bit of a mind flip

Lily: 
You're into the time slip

Kyle:
And nothing can ever be the same

Joe: 
You're spaced out on sensation, ow

Matt:
Like you're under sedation

The Note-Worthy:
Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Half way into the number Zach notices Nathan exits the choir
room.

Maya:
Well, I was walking down the street
Just a-having a think
When a snake of a guy
Gave me an evil wink

As Maya sang her lines she sexily made her way passed all
the other members including Matt and flirtatiously winked at Zach. Which didn’t
sit well with him seeing his girlfriend openly flirt with other guys.

Sydney:
He shook-a me up
He took me by surprise
He had a pickup truck
And the devil's eyes
He stared at me and I felt a change
Time meant nothing, never would again

The Note-Worthy:
Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Zach:
It's just a jump to the left 

The Note-Worthy: 
And then a step to the right

Zach:
Put your hands on your hips

The Note-Worthy:
And bring your knees in tight
But it's a pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane
Let's do the Time Warp again

Let's do the Time Warp again

“Now that’s what I call a performance! If we can keep this up, there’s no doubt in my mind that we can’t in Sectionals” Mrs. Clarke cheered while the group smiled and laughed with each other. Though Zach was still slightly worried about Nathan.

Midway into the day Matt caught up with Kyle and Joe in hopes of getting them to talk to Gina in his place. “You guys busy because I have something important to ask” he asked glancing back and forth at the two. Kyle looked him up and down slowly examining the boy’s appearance before quickly replying “Yes you have my gay stamp of approval.” Slightly annoyed and confused Matt simply stared at Kyle before snapping back into reality. “Kyle please” he said dismissing the boys comment, “I need you guys to talk to Gina for me.”

Kyle dramatically, both of his eyebrows shooting up in the most exaggerated sense. He didn’t give Matt the chance to finish his request to which he didn’t care as he went on the defensive. “How dare you even think of cheating on Maya with that hag after all she went through to get with you” Kyle cried out hitting Matt over and over with his notebook.

Joe too distracted by Rick who was down the hall speaking with one of the teachers. It was breathtaking how handsome he was. Joe didn’t want this to be some schoolboy crush because he actually really felt something for Rick.

“Joe help” Matt shouted causing him to snap back to reality.

“Kyle we can’t hill the poor boy” Joe explained yanking the notebook from Joe.

“Thank you” Matt sighed.

“We have to let Queen Maya do it” Joe snapped sneakily.

Matt exhaled, tension visibly leaving his shoulders. “You guys. Gina is over the Halloween committee. And she’s the one thing stopping us from using it as a fundraiser.”

This was bad. Kyle and Joe worried that this could ruin their plans. “Matt! We were gonna use part of that money to help Mrs. Clarke. Do you need us to talk to Gina? ” Kyle asked.

“It would mean a lot. I would do it but the last time we spoke we didn’t end on the best of terms” Matt added lowering his head in shame.

“You mean when you sang a song confessing your love to Maya in the middle of the choir room with Gina also in the room? And didn’t she slap you-“

Matt crossed his arms. “Okay Joe we get it.”

At lunch all the members of the glee club sat outside next to a bench under a tree. Lily, Nathan, and Alison sat on one side of the bench while Zach and Sydney sat down.  Zach eyes looked across at Nathan, stealing as many glances as he could, trying to figure the boy out. He couldn’t figure him out. Every time it looked like they were making progress Nathan would just shut him out and he’d spend his time trying to get back in to good graces with him.

“So Nathan can we expect another Britney sized hissy fit from you this year” Alison playfully sneered as she at a rice off of Lily’s tray.

“No” he said in a sharp tone. “Everyone is always waiting for me to explode. And what is with the 50 questions from everyone.”

Lily had to wonder if maybe Nathan was reacting like this because of what happened over the weekend. She was concerned for a lot of people lately as close as everyone might be getting the stress did seem to start to weigh in on them.

Over in the Cafeteria Matt and Maya were both at odds. He was beginning to become fed up with her new behavior and after seeing her being a little too close with one of the members on the football team he was ready to snap.

“Maya what the hell is your problem lately. It’s like you don’t care about us anymore the way you’ve been throwing yourself all over everything that walks.”

Maya turned to him viciously “What the hell is that supposed to mean Matthew? I’m sorry you can’t handle that I’ve embraced how hot I am and I’m sorry if other guys can see it.” She had no intent on backing down on this especially since he confronted her in the middle of the cafeteria. “Maybe I’m too much woman for you now and you don’t know what to do with me.?”

“Maya all I’ve done for us and this is what it’s coming too. Look you either want this to work or you want to popularity. You can’t have both” he demanded.

Maya stood. Her blood fuming and increasing every second. “You don’t boss me around. I can do whatever I want whenever I want and if you don’t like it you can bounce.”

Bach outside at the bench.

“Nathan you aren’t exactly the most spirited person around this time.” Zach explained. “Don’t you remember last year’s little incident.”

Just then everyone thought of the rampage Nathan went on after Alyssa asked him to be the back part of her human centipede. He was so enraged that everywhere he went he throw over Halloween decorations and tore down banners grunting as if he were the hulk. 

“I spent a lot of time on that poster” Lily sighed to herself. Alison reluctantly rubbing her back trying to comfort her even though her face was frowned as if she caught a whiff was something rancid.

“Fine” Nathan said removing himself from the table.

“Nathan- “

“Look just save it. You want Halloween spirit. You’re going to get it” Nathan said turning around and magically appeared in leather outfit.

 

Nathan:
For those who don't know me,
I can get a bit crazy
Have to get my way,yep
24 hours a day
'cause I'm hot like that

At the same time in the Cafeteria it’s revealed that Maya is
in a leather cat suit. As she pushes Matt out of the way she sings the next few
lines flirting with all of the hot guys in the building.

Maya:
Every guy, everywhere
just gives me mad attention
Like I'm under inspection
I always gets a ten,
'cause I'm built like that

The scene then cuts to Maya and Nathan throwing some double
doors open and entering the halls of the school with other people dressed in
identical leather outfits. Terrorizing everyone in their sights.

Maya (Nathan)
I go through guys like money (ow)
flyin' out the hands
They try to change me
but they realize they can't (but they realize they can't)
And every tomorrow is a day I never plan
If you're gonna be my man understand (If you're gonna be my man understand)

Nathan and Maya
I can't be tamed
I can't be tamed
I can't be blamed
I can't, can't, I can't, can't be tamed
I can't be changed
I can't be tamed
I can't be, can't, I can't be tamed

Maya:
If there was a question about my intentions,
I'll tell ya
I'm not here to sell ya
Or tell you to go to hell
(I'm not a brat like that)

Nathan:
I'm like a puzzle
but all of my pieces are jagged
If you can understand this,
we can make some magic,
I'm wrong like that

At this point the performance made its way to the glee club
where Maya and Nathan focused their performance on Matt, Zach and the other members.

Nathan and Maya:
I wanna fly,
I wanna drive,
I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don't know
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby, by now you should know

I can't be tamed
I can't be tamed
I can't be blamed
I can't, can't, I can't, can't be tamed
I can't be changed
I can't be tamed
I can't be, can't, I can't be tamed

Nathan and Maya
Well I'm not a trick you play,
I'm wired a different way
I'm not a mistake,
I'm not a fake,
It's set in my DNA

Nathan:
Don't change me

Maya:
Don't change me

Nathan:
Don't change me

Maya (Nathan)
Don't change me (I can't be tamed)

Maya (Nathan)
I wanna fly,
I wanna drive,
I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don't know (I don't know)
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby, by now you should know (Baby, by now you should know)

Nathan and Maya:
I can't be tamed
I can't be tamed
I can't be blamed
I can't, can't, I can't, can't be tamed
I can't be changed
I can't be tamed

I can't be, can't, I can't be tamed

By the end of the performance the two of them made their fiercest pose and looked out at their other members not caring about what their opinions are. With a flick of her hand Maya dismissed the random cheerleaders she had act as backup dancers.

“Way to get into the spirit you two” Mrs. Clarke praised the two as they sat together no idea of what their performance meant for a lot of people in the group. The two of them exhausted from the performance didn’t speak but high fived each other feeling fulfilled.

Kyle spotted Gina walking down the hall and flagged her down. “Hey Gina can I talk you really quickly. It’s important.” He ushered her over to his locker as he was getting ready for the last class of the day. Noticing her demeanor, he discerned that she seemed to be in positive spirits.

“Sure” she smiled broadly, amazed that he was even speaking to her seeing as how she was basically shunned by the glee club after she quit. “But if this is about the Note-Worthy’s performing at the dance I really appreciate you guys stepping up because I worked really hard to make everything perfect.”

“No problem” he replied shoving some of the books into his locker, “but there is one more thing. We really need some way to make money and since you’re the head of the committee it would mean a lot if you’d let us use the dance as a fundraiser.”

Suddenly her mood shifted. “Tell Matt he can ask me himself.” Gina then stormed off fighting back her tears. Leaving Kyle at his locker with his head hung low.

That night Joe and Rick were on their way back from a late night date to the movies. Since the last thing they wanted was to be seen by anyone they caught the latest film on a weekday which was guaranteed to be almost completely bare minus the one fat guy with no life who goes to watch the latest comic book action movie for the 20th time.

“I had fun” Rick smiled as he parked in front of Joe’s house.

Joe glanced out the window, checking to see if anyone was still awake but saw that all of the lights inside the home was off. “So did I.” He turned back to Rick, Joe’s expression now reserved and emotionless as it had been for most of the night. Though he tried his best to smile a bit.

“Can I come in for a bit” Rick asked.

“I don’t know if that’s a good idea” Joe replied reluctantly.

He sighed. “Have you still not talked to your sister about us?”

“You don’t know Lily like I do. She’s really sweet and very sensitive and the last thing I want is to hurt her again. It’s one thing that I’ve been hiding this secret from her and I just haven’t come up with what I’m going to teller.”

His explanation pickled Rick. He didn’t know much about Lily other than what see’s seen of her from hiding around whenever she was close to catching the two of them in the act and from what Joe’s told him but what he was saying now seemed a bit of a contradiction. “The truth. Joe if you care about her than you should trust her to handle anything you have to teller. Believe me, there’s nothing that can destroy a relationship faster than dishonesty because sometimes it’s really hard to gains someone’s trust after you’ve lost it.”

Rick’s passionate response finally sparked a smile from Joe. It was truly brilliant having someone that knew all the right things to say which oddly turned Joe on. He licked his lips, and then delighted Rick as he zeroed in for the kiss. There was no hesitation. Joe felt Rick reacting to his movements. Maybe not as forcefully as he reacted, but the energy between the two of them was real.

Moments later the two of them pushed away both joyfully laughing.

“What was that for” Rick childishly beamed.

“Just for being here” Joe replied as he exited the car.

“I’ll see you tomorrow at school then” Rick asked trying to put on a professional voice.

“Of course Mr. Adams” Joe smirked before walking up to the front door.

From inside the house Lily was spying on the two of them from the peephole on the door. She knew it was wrong to pry but it was starting to eat at her not knowing what was going on in Joe’s life especially since they were so close.

“Lily what are you doing” Kyle questioned coming down the stairs.

Unaware of his presence Lily jumped in fear and quickly turned to see her brother. “Oh! I was just making sure the door was locked. You know, keeping the burglars out.”

“Okay let’s go with that” Kyle replied. “Hey I bought pint of ice cream the other day you want to split it?”

At this point she would have said anything to get him out of the room before Joe came inside but ice cream didn’t sound like a bad idea. “Oh crap” she suddenly remembered Joe was on his way to the door. As she turned to check where he was the door had already opened knocking her to the ground.

Startled Joe quickly came in to see what happened only to find Kyle covering his mouth in shock and Lily on the floor looking up at him. “Oh for fuck sakes lily were you spying on me.”

“No” she replied in a horribly unbelievable tone. “I came down here to get some ice cream with Kyle.”

Kyle being completely out of the loop had no idea what was going on but the two of them had been acting strange for the past few weeks and he was fed up. “Why Joe. What is there to spy on.”

Joe sighed and flopped onto the sofa finally succumbing to the pressures of his secrets. “Clearly Lily, I owe you an apology and Kyle please try to catch up. I’m sorry that I didn’t tell you guys about me and Rick-”

“Wait who is Rick” Kyle screamed running over to the sofa.

“The gym teacher Kyle keep up please” Lily added.

“Oh the really cute one? Joe you better go for the goal!” Kyle playfully through one of the sofa pillows over at Joe.

Just then the three of them all sat around laughing, none of them hurt or feeling resentment for any reason. “Joe we are a family. I’m glad you found someone to make you happy and a much as I want to make sure nothing bad happens to you if you think Rick is the right guy for life or for right now I’m always gonna support you.” Lily and Joe than hugged it out while Kyle who was starting to get emotional joined in. Lily backing down knowing deep down that she’d been doing the same with Alex this entire time.

The next day at school Matt, Kyle, and Joe all gathered into the choir room to catch up on what happened with Gina. After hear Kyle sum up everything Matt gave in. This was his mess and he had to make it right. So he hunted Gina down.

“Hey can we talk” he asked her to which she nodded and followed him into an empty classroom. There she was, standing fast and guarded, nothing like the girl he knew last year. “So I’m sorry that I didn’t come to you first and sent Kyle instead.”

“Do you really think that’s what this is all about?” she asked slightly irritated. “Matt you can be such an asshole you know that. Everyone hypes you up to be this really cool loveable guy but in reality you are no better than some of the jocks around there. The only problem is you hide behind the glee club and let them take the lead while you hide in the back. And it sucks that after all this time of waiting for you to apologize for how we ended up here I still have feelings for you.” He noticed the glistening tears growing in her eyes and hated himself for putting her through so much pain.

“I’m sorry,” he whispered as he went in to hug her, but she pushed him away. Matt sighed and took a seat in one of the chairs dropping his face into his hands. “Gina I wish I could take back everything that happened last year if it meant you wouldn’t have to feel this way. And right now you can hate me and you could curse my name all you want but this fund raiser is bigger than you. It’s bigger than me. It’s bigger than this whole glee club. We’re donating this money to do some good in someone’s life. So please can you do this for me.”

Gina took a deep breath, fully aware of the tears gathering in her eyes. “Of course you had to be doing it for someone other than yourself.” All her instincts were to make him suffer but not if it meant someone else would suffer for it. “Fine. I’ll tell the others on the committee. You just make sure the Note-Worthy bring it at the dance.” With that she was out of the door, closing it behind her.

Matt sat there for a long time, the last few moments replaying in his head. He couldn’t believe it. There was no doubt that it was his fault for her feelings towards him. His one thought being she wouldn’t be this bitter girl if he’d just hide his feelings for Maya. It was then that the anger began boiling inside of him. He wasn’t mad just mad at himself, he was mad at her. How could he do all this for a girl who’s been carelessly hurting him every day. Felling the rage curse through his body, his fist slammed into the wall, bruising his knuckles. Heading out of the classed he searched up and down the halls for Maya where he ultimately found her in the choir room.

“Hey babe” she said wrapping her arms around his arms. “Look I forgive you for being such a prude the other day. And I’ve decided that for Halloween we should be Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.”

Maya was oblivious to Matt’s demeanor but everyone else could clearly see he was upset. “Me or your popularity” Matt stated.

Maya backed away from him annoyed. “Are you still going on about this? How can you make me choose?”

“It’s simple really. You either want to be with me or you don’t and obviously both isn’t an option.” He explained.

“I can’t believe you’re making me do this.” Maya shouted.

“You know what Maya. You don’t have to worry about who we’re going to be for Halloween because as of right now we’re going on a break until you can figure out what you want out of this mess your in.” With a few cracks of his neck Matt reached into his backpack and pulled out sheet music. “For the past year I’ve been so busy trying to maintain relationships with two people who seem to either hate me or not care at all. I think it’s time I focused on me for a while.” 

As he walked back down to the front of everyone the music began to play and the number began with Matt freestyle dancing in the center of the room.

 

The Note-Worthy:
Finders keepers, losers weepers

Matt:
Welcome to the end of eras
Ice has melted back to life
Done my time and served my sentence
Dress me up and watch me die
If it feels good, tastes good
It must be mine
Dynasty decapitated
You just might see a ghost tonight
And if you don't know, now you know

Matt (The
Note-Worthy)
I'm taking back the crown
I'm all dressed up and naked
I see what's mine and take it
(Finders keepers, losers weepers)
Oh, yeah
The crown...
So close I can taste it
I see what's mine and take it
(Finders keepers, losers weepers)
Oh, yeah

Matt:
Sycophants on velvet sofas
Lavish mansions, vintage wine
I am so much more than royal
Snatch your chain and mace your eyes
If it feels good, tastes good
It must be mine
Heroes always get remembered
But you know legends never die
And if you don't know, now you know

Matt (The
Note-Worthy)
I'm taking back the crown
I'm all dressed up and naked
I see what's mine and take it
(Finders keepers, losers weepers)
Oh, yeah
The crown
So close I can taste it
I see what's mine and take it
(Finders keepers, losers weepers)
Oh, yeah

By now the scene has changed to a dark creepy auditorium
that been decorated to fit the dark demented theme of the song. At the center
of the stage stood the boys of the group with Matt in the middle in all black
robs with hoodies on their heads.

Note-Worthy Guys
Mortal kings are ruling castles
Welcome to my world of fun
Liars settle into sockets
Flip the switch and watch them run

Matt then burst from within his robe and began to belt out
the song revealing his demonic

Matt (The Note-Worthy):
Oh, yeah, oh
(Finders keepers, losers weepers)
I'm taking back, back, taking back, back
The crown
I'm all dressed up and naked
I see what's mine and take it
(Finders keepers, losers weepers)
Oh, yeah
The crown
So close I can taste it
I see what's mine and take it
(Finders keepers, losers weepers)
Oh, yeah

(Finders keepers, losers weepers)

(Finders keepers, losers weepers)

It was the night of the big dance and everyone was showing up in their best Halloween costumes. Cass dressed as Dorthy from The Wizards of Oz and Jackie stood front dressed identically to the girl with the dragon tattoo at the entrances with buckets collecting money at the door with Perry who again wore her bejazzled hijab and balenciaga ballgown. Lily and the others were backstage prepping for their big number.

“Lily you look sickening” Joe yelled snapping his fingers at her.

Lily giggled as she did a twirl in her queen of hearts dress. Laughing at Joe as if he hadn’t seen her in the costume before. She tilted her head like she was trying to figure out what Joe was supposed to be. “Okay remind me one more time who you are” she asked him nervously.

Joe frowned flailing his crossbow in the air, “I’m Daryl from the walking dead for the 20th time.”

Lily shrugged off Joe’s response and pouted in an attempt to get back on his good side. “Well, if it matters I think you’re the best Daryl there is.” She paused for a minute as one of the senior guys walked by in the same costume “You know what. I’ll rephrase that.”

From a distance Zach watched Alex and his other football goons all zombified in the corner plotting something. He just knew Alex was up to no good. Why else would he’d have joined the glee club out of the blue like that. The thought of what they could be thinking up was a daunting feeling.

“I see you’re back at it again Alex. What the hell is going on over here” Zach grilled as he approached them.

“Will you relax I’m prepping them for the performance.” Shaking his head, he continues, “I’m a part of the glee club now which means someone has to lookout for you homos. So I got Matt and Joe to help me teach the guys the routine their going to dance with us.”

Zach was oddly impressed yet disturbed at the same time. He wanted to see the best in Alex but he’d shown that time and time again he wasn’t so why would this be any different. “That’s actually really cool of you man” he admitted “welcome to the club.” Finally letting his guard down a bit he decided that if the others were gonna accept Alex he’ give it a shot too.

Lily beamed seeing how much effort Alex had been putting in to prove to you he’s changed and it even made her considered opening up about their relationship, but not just yet. “Okay you guys listen up” she shouted rounding up the other members backstage “We actually have a good setlist. So lets go out there and show them that The Note-Worthys are coming!” Everyone cheered, running off to the stage to perform.

 

Sydney and Lily with Note-Worthy:
Off with your head
D-dance dance dance till you're dead
O-off off off with your head
D-dance dance dance till you're dead
O-off off off with your head

Joe:
It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark, ah
Ah, Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart

Zach with Note-Worthy:
You try to scream (Zach: Ah)

Zach and Sydney (Lily):
But terror takes the sound before you make it (Heads will roll, heads will
roll!)

Joe with Note-Worthy:
(Joe: Ah) You start to freeze

Joe and Sydney:
As horror looks you right between the eyes

Joe:
You're paralyzed, ah, 'cause this is

Joe with Note-Worthy:
Thriller, thriller night 

Zach: 
And no one's gonna save you 
From the beast about to strike
You know it's

Zach with Note-Worthy:

You're fighting for your life inside a

Joe with Note-Worthy:

And realize there's nowhere left to run
Ah, You feel the cold hand 
And wonder if you'll ever see the sun

Zach with Note-Worthy:
You close your eyes... (Zach: Ah)

Zach and Sydney (Lily):
And hope that this is just imagination (Zach: Ah) (Heads will roll,
heads will roll!)

Joe with Note-Worthy:
(Joe: Ah) But all the while

Joe and Sydney:
You hear the creature creeping up behind
You're out of time

(Note-Worthy) Zach:

O-off off off with your head (Note-Worthy: Thriller night)
D-dance dance dance till you're dead (Note-Worthy: Thriller night)

The Note-Worthy split in the middle as Alex and his undead
zombie football team entered the stage joining on the break down.

Alex:
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand (Lily: Ahhhhh)
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'alls neighborhood
And though you fight to stay alive (Lily: Off with your head)
Your body starts to shiver (Lily: Dance 'till you're dead)
For no mere mortal can resist (Lily: Heads will roll, heads will
roll!)
The evil of Thriller (Lily: Heads will roll, on the floor!)

Note-Worthy:
Thriller night!

Joe:
Cause this is

As the music picks back up Cass, Jackie, Perry, Becca, and Angelika
were out in the crowd with collection buckets holding them out to everyone
while jamming out. To their surprise everyone was very gracious and willing to
give to which they figured it was the effect of the music filling the room with
cheer.

Joe with Note-Worthy:
Thriller, thriller night

Joe:
Girl, I can thrill you more 
Than any ghost could ever dare try

Note-Worthy:
Thriller, (Joe: Oh oh) thriller night

Zach:
So let me hold you tight and share a

Zach and Joe with Note-Worthy:
Killer, thriller, Tonight!

Sydney and Lily with Note-Worthy:
Off with your head (Note-Worthy: Thriller night)
D-dance dance dance until you're dead (Note-Worthy: Thriller night)
O-off off off with your head (Note-Worthy: Thriller night)
D-dance dance dance until you're dead (Note-Worthy: Thriller night)

O-off off off with your head

The night went on and everyone seemed to be having fun. Alyssa, still singing Heartbeat song, pretended to be drunk from the punch even though everyone knew she had it before Alex had a chance to spike it. Maya was at the center of the dancefloor recreating all the single ladies dance with Angelika and Becca as backup in hopes to proving Matt that she was fine without him. Joe and Rick stole glances at one and other after coming back from sneaking out of to find an empty class to make out in. Alison made her way across the room in a leather cat suit eyeing her target for the night when she finally found one of the jocks who’d changed out of the zombie costume and into a Tarzan outfit. Hypnotized by his muscles she smiled sullenly saying to herself, “Bingo.”

Mrs. Clarke was standing on the wall watching over the teens as they partied well on into the night before being bombarded by her students Joe, Sydney, and Matt.

“Come on Mrs. Clarke dance with us.” Joe requested as the three of them danced around her.

“You guys I couldn’t” she blushed, the three not backing down.

“You have to! There’s no way we could ever be caught dead with our fabulous couch on the site when she could dance rings around everyone here” Sydney added.

As hard as he wanted to resist she couldn’t help but to fall into their charm. She loved those kids as if they were her own and to see them cling to her only made her job feel that much more important. Knowing that there was someone who relied on her kept her going.

Back on the stage Lily and Kyle got ready for their finale number of the night. Both now in matching white costumes as well as the musicians behind them.

Zach left the party early. His mind still on Nathan. He’d texted him earlier to meet him earlier and since then Zach had been waiting on the corner under a streetlight. The streets were quieter now that everyone had finished their trick or treating and some of the people in their houses were beginning to turn their street lights off.

“Why are you out here like some kind of hooker?” Nathan questioned his hands in his pockets to shield them from the breeze that the October weather brought.

“We need to talk about what happened at that party. Everything is still kind of fussy for me. I can’t shake the feeling that something happened to you. And I’m scared that you might have had sex but-” Zach paused. He was too afraid to continue and he could see from the tears swelling in Nathan’s eyes he was diving into serious territory.

“Zach don’t” Nathan cried. “The last thing I wanted was to lose my virginity and to even think that I could have lost it to some stranger is too much”

It was an emotional moment for the both of them, but Zach didn’t know what to say that wouldn’t set Nathan off even further. “But we have to consider that someone took advantage of you and I’m not okay with that. You mean a lot to me and if that’s what this is we need to go to the police or somebody.”

Nathan shook his head over and over as he kept getting flashes of that night piercing his brain. It made his skin crawl. Sadness and diffidence possess his pupils. He wants to fall into Zach’s arms so much but he can’t face him. “This can’t be happening to me. How could I let this happen? I’m such an idiot.” Nathan cried out.

Zach forced his arms around Nathan letting his head fall into his chest. “Don’t do this” he demanded trying to fight back his own tears. “You did nothing wrong and I’m sorry I wasn’t there to protect you.”

 

Lily:
Died last night in my dreams
Walking the streets
Of some old ghost town
I tried to believe
In God and James Dean
But Hollywood sold out

Kyle:
Saw all of the saints
Lock up the gates
I could not enter
Walked into the flames
Called out your name
But there was no answer

Kyle and Lily:
And now I know my heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

Kyle:
My heart is a ghost town

Kyle:
Died last night in my dreams
All the machines
Had been disconnected
Time was thrown at the wind
And all of my friends
Had been disaffected

Lily:
Now, I'm searching for trust
In a city of rust
A city of vampires
Tonight, Elvis is dead
And everyone's spread
And love is a satire

Kyle:
And now I know my heart is a ghost town

As everyone partied, Cass, Perry and Jackie ran from the back where
they had been counted all the funds they’d been collection throughout the evening.
“You guys we did it!” Cass shouted showing off the amount they made written on
a sheet of paper. Everyone ecstatic over this accomplishment. Joe took the sheet
of paper and wrote down a number before handing it to Mrs. Clarke.

“What is this” she smiled confused.

“That’s the amount we’ve decided to give you.”

It took Mrs. Clarke a moment to process exactly what he was
saying to her but once she’d come to the realization she was in shock. “Joe I
can’t take this” she replied reaching the paper back to him.

Joe sighed. “Yes. You can. We know that you’re having
troubles and this is our way of helping you. You’ve done so much for us please
Mrs. Clarke. Let us help you.”

Mrs. Clarke beamed radiantly seeing her students so
passionate towards her. There was no way she could fight them on this especially
with Joe leading the cause. So finally she gave in giving them all big hugs.

From that moment the entire glee club danced the rest of the
number out together forgetting about all the problems they had. Though after
one glance at each other Matt and Maya remembered that things weren’t all okay.
Not wanting bad blood between the two Matt hugged her and continued to dance on
with the others. For Maya time stopped during their embrace and once he’d let
go apart of her felt bad about how she’d been acting but it would end just as
face and it came when she caught eyes with Alison.

Kyle and Lily:
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

Kyle:
There's no one left in the world
I'm gunslingin'

Lily:
Don't give a damn if I go
Down, down, down

Kyle and Lily:
I got a voice in my head that keeps singing
Oh, my heart is a ghost town

My heart is a ghost town
Oh, my heart is a ghost town
(Kyle: Said, my heart)
My heart is a ghost town

My heart is a ghost town
