EpisodeEdit

Previously on The Fugly Hoes Reboot: Joe and Zach got together but were caught by Zach's former friends who also kicked him off the football team. Kyle and Joe clashed and Joe found Kyle to be a hot mess. Kyle revealed that he had bipolar disorder and him and Maya fought, which was odd, since Kyle and Maya never used to fight. Sydney told Becca that Angelika liked Nathan who then found out from Becca and now Angelika quit glee club and is fighting with Sydney again.

Kyle, I don’t know what you want us to do? You can’t ask us to come home early: we deserve this holiday after the stressful year we had Okay? Plus: we’ve spent the money already.”

“Mom, last time you said you were staying till Christmas…”

“Plans change sweetie…”

“You’re missing my birthday though now as well.”

“We’ll be back before spring break. Then the three of us will go to the cottage at Vale.”

“Fine.”

“That’s my understanding little boy. Kisses” His mother said uncaringly. Kyle felt like it was going to be just another day total shit. Kyle had never wanted a drink so badly in his life. But he was trying not to think about that:

(Kyle Begins to sing Just Another Day from Next To Normal)

KYLE

They're the perfect loving family, so adoring

And I love them every day of every week

So my son's a little sh*t, my husband's boring

And my daughter, though a genius, is a freak

Still I help them love each other

Father mother sister brother

Cheek to cheek

“Maya, here’s your lunch. You have good day okay? I pray for you.” Maya’s Lola (grandmother) said.

“Mother, you don’t need to pray for her everytime she leaves the house.” Maya’s mother said. Maya rolled her eyes and left for the day.

MAYA

So it's times like these I wonder how I take it,

And if other families live the way we do.

If they love each other or if they just fake it,

And if other daughters feel like I feel too.

Cause some days I think I'm dying,

But I'm really only trying to get through

“Oi, wake up Joe. Time for school.” Joe’s mom screamed from the bottom of the stairs. Joe felt like he was on top of the world, that nothing could stand in his way.

JOE:

For just another day, for another stolen hour

When the world will feel my power and obey

BOTH

It's just another day

JOE:

Feeling like I'll live forever

MAYA

Feeling like this feeling never goes away

BOTH

For just another day.

“Hey Joey. You ready?” Zach said. Joe rolled his eyes. When he saw Kyle, Joe noticed that he looked horrible. Not like, bad looking, but he looked exhausted and miserable. Something was up, and as self designated Glee Club Captain, it was his job to make sure everything was okay.

JOE:

When it's up to you to hold your house together

A house you built with patience and with care

But you're grappling with that gray and rainy weather

And you're living on a latte and a prayer

KYLE

Prayer

BOTH

Can you keep the cup from tipping

Can you keep your grip from slipping in despair,

For just another day

JOE:

In the hustle and the hurry

You want to wipe the worry clean away

ALL

For just another day.

KYLE

I will keep the plates all spinning

With a smile so white and winning all the way

ALL

Cause what doesn't kill me doesn't kill me

So fill me up for just another day.

KYLE

It only hurts when I breathe.

JOE:

It only hurts when I try.

KYLE:

It only hurts when I think.

MAYA

It only hurts when I cry.

KYLE:

It only hurts when I work.

JOE:

It only hurts when I play.

MAYA

It only hurts when I move.

ALL

It only hurts when I say,

It's just another day

(overlapping)

KYLE

A dizzy, dizzy day

JOE:

When the morning sun is showing

KYLE

I will hold it all together

ALL

And you wish that you were running far away

KYLE

I will hide the nest away

ALL

It's just another day

KYLE

I will survive another day

JOE:

Birds are singing, figs are falling

KYLE

And I will pray to hold on just this day

ALL

And you wish you would be gone

But you'll stay

You'll stay

KYLE

For my family's sake

ALL

For you know it's now or never

KYLE

I'll reap what I can take

ALL

And you know they're gone forever

Stay

KYLE:

I'm only just awake

Every day is just another and another and another

I will hold it all together

We're the perfect loving family

If they say we're not then fuck 'em

The perfect loving family

I will keep the plates all spinning

And the world just keeps on spinning

“I think the house is spinning.” Kyle muttered to himself before catching up to Maya and Lily.

***********************************************************************************

After school that day, Mrs. Clarke wrote a word on the black board: PARENTS .

“What is the one word you would use to describe your parents?” She asked.

“Absent.” Kyle muttered, but loud enough for Maya, Nathan and Joe to turn their heads.

“Perfect.” Ali gushed. Figured she was a Daddy’s little princess, Joe thought.

“Non-existant.” Lily muttered to herself so quietly no one could hear her. Ali rolled her eyes.

“So now it looks like we have two psycho’s in the class. Might as well turn this club in to the schools’ Special Ed club. You know Lily, people who talk to themselves are usually considered insane. “ Ali sneered at Lily, then turned her attention to Kyle. ”You and Rich Hot Gay American Psycho can literally form your own psych ward.” 

“Miss. Jean! Detention tomorrow after class.”

“Whatever. I’m outie. I have shit to do, better shit than you losers.” Ali said leaving the club, which hadn’t been started yet. “BECCA!!!” she screamed for her minion to follow her. The other blonde girl followed suit like a sheep to her shepherd

Mrs. Clarke was shocked for a second. Then she turned back to the rest of the club.

Kyle and Lily both were waiting for her to get a move on. They didn’t have all day. Maya was looking at Kyle inquisitively. 

“Right, class: the teams we are facing off against at Sectionals are tough but I think with the right song choice, made by Liliana and Joseph, we can really make a splash in the competition.”

“I want to know what’s up with Kyle first.” Joe blurted out. Fuck. He thought to himself. He was always speaking before he thought about that he was going to say.

Kyle perked up his head. He had completely lost his train of thought and was staring of into space before Joe tore him out of his thoughts.

“Huh?”

“Look, I think we can all agree, Kyle, that you’ve gotten a hell of a lot better since you freaked out on everyone and then opened up. But something else is wrong…” Joe pointed out as Gina decided to kick Maya's chair just because she felt like doing it.

"Sorry, didn't mean too..." Gina said fakely.

“What? You expect me to open up? You don’t fucking know me. All of you can pretend all you want that you know me, but you don’t…” Kyle said as he ran out. Joe got up to leave to try and talk to him but Maya stopped him.

“No, let me.” She said, before leaving the room to find her friend.

************************************************************************************

Maya left and was looking around for her bestie, eventually finding him in a cubicle at the library.

“Hey.”

“Look, Gracie, I’m really not in the mood right now…”

“Kyle, what’s really going on?”

“I can’t…”

“Will, I love you no matter what. I’m here, remember? It’s just me.” She said lovingly towards her best friend.

MAYA:

What's the matter Mary Jane, you had a hard day

As you place the don't disturb sign on the door

You lost your place in line again, what a pity

You never seem to want to dance anymore

It's a long way down

On this roller coaster

The last chance streetcar

Went off the track

And you're on it

I hear you're counting sheep again Mary Jane

What's the point of trying to dream anymore

I hear you're losing weight again Mary Jane

Do you ever wonder who you're losing it for

Well it's full speed baby

In the wrong direction

There's a few more bruises

If that's the way

You insist on heading

Please be honest Mary Jane

Are you happy

Please don't censor your tears

You're the sweet crusader

And you're on your way

You're the last great innocent

And that's why I love you

So take this moment Mary Jane and be selfish

Worry not about the cars that go by

All that matters Mary Jane is your freedom

Keep warm my dear, keep dry

Tell me

Tell me

What's the matter Mary Jane...

“My parent’s aren’t coming back until after my birthday.” Kyle finally admitted, blushing so red, he looked like a cherry with tears welling up in his eyes.

“I thought they weren’t going to be home until New Years Day?”

“Evidently plans change…”

“Ky…do you want to stay at my place? Don’t worry about Mom and Lola won’t mind, they love you.”

“Thanks, but I think I’ll be fine on my own.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yeah.” He said hugging her. It still didn’t convince Maya of the fact that Kyle was 100% or even 70% okay. “Can we go back to Glee Club now?”

“Obvi.”

“Let’s go.” He said. He didn’t feel okay, but he said that because he still had some things to sort out.

********************************************************************************

After Kyle and Maya returned. Mrs. Clarke got back to teaching. She began telling them about how the lessons that they will learn in here are vital to becoming functioning members of society. 

KYLE:

Look I find some of what you teach suspect

Because I’m used to relying on intellect

But I try to open up, to what I don’t know

Because reason says

I should have died, three years ago.

“Kyle what do you mean?” Maya, suddenly terrified, asks.

“I…nevermind.”

“Kyle you can tell us. We won’t tell anyone else…” Sydney said.

“What, like you told Becca about Angelika having a crush on Scuba Diver? Or what about you, Maya? How you told Lily and Joe about me going to rehab when I didn’t even want to tell you? This fucking sucks…”

“Kyle, we’re not attacking you.” Matt said.

“Well it’s not working, is it?”

“Ali, you’re missing out, this is better than Bag Girls Club, The Real Housewives, Big Brother and Rupaul’s Drag Race combined…” Emma said into his phone amidst the chaos.

JOE, MAYA and MATT:

There’s only us

There’s only this

Forget regret

Or Life is your’s to miss

Kyle got up and left, Maya tried to follow him but he slammed the door in her face. She was absolutely shocked and was now 100% convinced that Kyle was not as okay as he said he was.

ALL:

No other road, no other way;

No day but today.

Kyle was just outside the door. He saw Angelika poking her head in the direction of the choir room. He waved meekly before walking off.

KYLE:

Will I lose my dignity?

Will someone care?

Will I wake tomorrow

From this nightmare?

KYLE:

Will I lose My dignity?

MAYA, MATT and LILY:

Will I lose My dignity?

JOE and ZACH:

Will I lose my dignity?

KYLE:

Will someone care?

MAYA, MATT and LILY:

Will someone Care?

JOE and ZACH:

Will someone care?

KYLE:

Will I wake tomorrow

MAYA, MATT and LILY:

Will I wake tomorrow

JOE and ZACH:

Will I wake tomorrow

KYLE:

From this nightmare?

Kyle said as he leaves, but the song in the glee club continues as Nathan and Sydney join in.

MAYA, MATT and LILY:

From this nightmare?

ZACH and JOE:

From this nightmare?

SYDNEY:

Will I lose my dignity?

NATHAN and LILY

Will I lose my dignity?

MAYA and MATT:

Will I lose my dignity?

 ZACH and JOE

Will I lose my dignity?

Angelika found herself standing outside the glee club door. She knew the words to this song and even though she wasn’t apart of the glee club anymore. She finally gathers the courage to enter the room.

ANGELIKA:

Will I lose my dignity?

ALL but KYLE:

Will someone care?

Will I wake tomorrow

From this nightmare?

“Angelika?” Sydney says. But Angelika just ignores her.

“I was wondering if I could come back?”

“Uh, yeah.” Nathan said so happy that Angelika was back. 

“Thanks.”

“Right, now…as you know, tomorrow night is parents night. And all of your parents are expected to visit me here in the Choir Room.” Mrs. Clarke stated.

************************************************************************************

It’s been two days since Kyle walked out of Glee Club and although he had gone back, it was very clear to the rest of the club that something was wrong with him. But he couldn’t tell them; it’s better for all of them if they didn’t know.

 “Mr. Ogilvie, I believe your parents will be disappointed with your grades…”

“Right…”

“Don’t let them slip any lower, or I will be forced to call them on whatever god forsaken continent they have stomped over to.”

“I won’t happen again, sir. I promise.” He said.

“Damn, Kyle. Bet that bottle of whisky is looking real good right now…” Frankie said beside him.  It had been the first reappearance of Frankie since the night out with Kyler.

“No it isn’t Frankie. I gotta go.”

“You know you want it Kyle…DON’T WALK AWAY FROM ME LITTLE BROTHER!!!!” He screamed but Kyle kept on walking.

************************************************************************************

“Hey, Ang… can we talk?”

“No.”

“Please?”

“What is there to talk about Sydney? You destroyed my trust in you…”

“But I thought…”

“Thought what? That I’d get over it? Well you thought wrong.”

“I miss you…”

“That’s cute, now you’re the one who needs me…”

SYDNEY:

I thought, I saw a man brought to life

He was warm, he came around and he was dignified

He showed me what it was to cry

ANGELIKA:

Well, you couldn't be that man I adored

You don't seem to know

Seem to care what your heart is for

But I don't know him anymore

SYDNEY:

There's nothing where he used to lie

ANGELIKA:

The conversation has run dry

BOTH:

That's what's going on

Nothing's fine, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith

This is how I feel

I'm cold and I am shamed

Lying naked on the floor

Illusion never changed

Into something real

ANGELIKA:

I'm wide awake and I can see

The perfect sky is torn

You're a little late,

BOTH:

 I'm already torn

ANGELIKA:

So I guess the fortune teller's right

Should have seen just what was there

And not some holy light

SYDNEY:

It crawled beneath my veins

ANGELIKA:

And now I don't care, I had no luck

I don't miss it all that much

There's just so many things

That I can touch, I'm torn

SYDNEY:

I'm all out of faith

This is how I feel

I'm cold and I am shamed

Lying naked on the floor

BOTH:

Illusion never changed

Into something real

ANGELIKA:

I'm wide awake and I can see

The perfect sky is torn

You're a little late, I'm already torn, torn

“Um, guys? Why are you singing in the bathroom?”

“GET OUT LILY!!” Sydney screamed as Lily ran out of the bathroom scared that Sydney would punch her face or something.

SYDNEY:

There's nothing where he used to lie

My inspiration has run dry

ANGELIKA:

That's what's going on

Nothing's right, I'm torn

SYDNEY:

I'm all out of faith

This is how I feel

I'm cold and I am shamed

Lying naked on this floor

ANGELIKA:

Illusion never changed

Into something real

I'm wide awake and I can see

The perfect sky is torn

BOTH:

I'm all out of faith

This is how I feel

I'm cold and I'm ashamed

Bound and broken on the floor

ANGELIKA:

You're a little late, I'm already torn, torn

“I’m so sorry Ang…”

“I know.” She said, emotionless. That wasn’t the answer that Sydney was hoping for.

“Can we be friends again?”

“I need time, Sydney. Just give me some time and space.” Angelika said.

“Fine. Just know that I’m sorry. Like really sorry.”

************************************************************************************

Zach had everything he wanted in life. That was until he met Joe. To say the boy turned his life upside down and backwards was an understatement: e was part of a team and his reputation wasn’t fucked. But lately all he seemed to do was fuck shit up.

“Watch out faggot…” Alex sneered as he bumped in him. Andres sneered back at him and Kyler just walked by him, ignoring his existence.

“Might want to reconsider your use of language, Alejandro, you seem to care an awful lot about Zach’s sexuality…” Joe sneered back.

“All I know was before he joined that faggy little club of yours, he was straight. And then he met you…”

Joe proceeded to try and shove Alex but all of a sudden Joe felt himself being flung back. Kyle had stepped in to stop Joe from doing something stupid.

“This doesn’t involve you Whack-job.” Alex sneered.

“You’re shoving my friends around and harassing them. So yeah, I kinda think it does.”

“I’d so kick your ass.”

“Go ahead, try. I wonder what your mother would think when she found my dad’s Lawyers on her front lawn because my parents are suing you for everything you own including that busted little shack you call a house…”

“You’re crazy. You don’t have the balls Ogilvie.”

“You’re right, I am crazy. I dare you to try me.” He said, glaring at Alex and Andres. Kyler looked down, feeling guilty for not doing anything. Alex and Andres retreated, muttering words that sounded like “looney bin” and “…belongs in a fucking asylum.” Kyler followed suit but not before looking back at Kyle with an apologetic glance, which Kyle replied with a glare.

“You didn’t have to do that Kyle.”

“A thank you would suffice, Joseph.”

“How many times do I have to tell you to call me Joe?” He said, annoyed.

Zach suddenly felt jealous as he thought that Kyle was flirting with Joe.

“Joe, we should get going.” Zach said suddenly. Zach was getting impatient and it wasn’t just because of the fact that he was jealous of Kyle and Joe for some reason.  He was nervous for that night, because he still hadn’t told his dad that he was kicked off the football team.

Zach started walking away and Joe followed suit. Catching up, the older boy was perplexed about many things but mostly Zach’s attitude right now.

“Zach what the hell was that about?”

“What’s going on with you and Kyle?”

“Me and Kyle? Seriously, he’s a pompous psycho creep with a trust fund the size of Belgium. I can hardly stand the guy.”

“Well it seems that he likes you…”

“Zach, are you fucking kidding me? We have a mutual respect for one another, but that’s about it. Besides, I like you, doofus.” He said, although he was still intrigued by Kyle, but he didn’t need to tell that to Zach. It was more curiousity than attraction to be perfectly honest.

************************************************************************************

“So, Kyle: would you like to tell me what has been going through your mind lately?” his therapist asked him. She was a kind older woman. Dr. Jessica Sweeting was her name. Kyle had no intention to find out if she had any sort of relation to Joe Sweeting. They lived in a quaint little house that was almost big enough to be considered Upper Middle Class. It was cute, almost like a summer home his parents rented for him to stay at in Long Beach.

“Not much.”

“Kyle? We talked about this, if you want to trust me you are going to have to talk to me…”

“You’re never going to give up are you?”

“Well I am your therapist.”

“Fine. My parents aren’t going to be home for my birth…”

“Mum?” a voice called out from beyond the door. Dr. Sweeting got up and opened the door and then Kyle saw his worst nightmare: Joe Sweeting was the son of his therapist.

“Joseph, I am with a client right now. Later.” Joe saw the shoes and recognized them immediately.

“Kyle?”

“Hi Joe…”

Dr. Sweeting’s expression went from shock to annoyance to complete disbelief. She all but slammed the door in Joe’s face.

To say Joe was shocked that Kyle was his mother’s client was shocking but not completely unbelievable. Just completely coincidental and convenient that the kid in Glee Club who he clashed with most, other than sometimes Sydney, as well as Ali and Lily was his mother’s secret client who she had been seeing since late last year was just perfect, in the worst possible way.

Kyle on the other hand was trying to keep himself from showing how stressed and upset he was that Joe now knew he was in therapy. Of course it was his parents idea because they were very anti-pill even if he was eventually prescribed with several pills for his anxiety, his depression, his bipolar disorder among other things.

“Right, now back to what you were saying.” Dr. Sweeting said. 

“Right…where was I?” Kyle said.

************************************************************************************

After their session was done, Kyle left. But not before Joe caught up to him, which was the last thing Kyle wanted to do was to talk to Joe. Joe Sweeting, the same guy who had lead a lynch mob against him a few weeks ago.

“Hey, Kyle…”

“Joe, promise you won’t tell anyone I see a therapist…”

“I-I promise.” Joe said, caught by surprise.

“I’ll see you t-tomorrow.”

“What about tonight? It’s parent’s day…" 

“Right. That too. Bye.”

Joe was getting more and more curious. It was like the ultimate secret, finding out what Kyle was up to. What his past was…

“Joseph, don’t you dare. The Ogilvies are a very wealthy family, I do not want to get on their bad side…”

“But Mother…”

“No. Now get ready, I can already tell it is going to be a long night at your school.” Dr. Sweeting said to her son. The fact that his own mother told him to leave it alone did not sway him one bit. Joe was, more than ever, going to find out what the hell was going on.

************************************************************************************

When Kyle got out of the back seat of his driver, Howard’s car, he noticed a Black and tan Jaguar convertible in the car.

Oh god, why? Kyle asked himself as he realized his sister and her obnoxious republican husband were visiting for parent’s day.

“Kyle, darling. How’s my little brother?”

“Margot…”

“Is that anyway to treat your favourite sister?”

“You mean my only sister who ignores me unless she want’s something so badly she’d sell me to the highest bidder to get what she wants and has pushed me under the bus more times then I can count? Then yes, I think I’m responding in the proper fashion…” Kyle said, unimpressed.

“Is that anyway to talk to your sister, Kyle?” her husband, James, a Republican reporter and one of the biggest assholes Kyle has ever met. Not to mention he’s a ginormous prat, snob and the epitome of White Privilege.

“Hello James. I’m sorry, Margot, for talking to you like...”

“You must be off your meds.” Margot said with a big fake smile. “Sorry” she said unapologetically. Kyle rolled his eyes while he hugged her.

“What are you doing here?”

“Kyle, you think Mother and Father would miss Parents Day? No, but in this case they did and all but begged us to join you and report back to them.”

“Got it… I gotta be there early, but it starts at 7.”

“Why do you have to be there early buddy?” James said with a slight belittling tone.

“I just do. Just don’t embarrass me.”

“Whatever, where is the wine cellar, I need a glass of Chadonnay. Where is Magdalena or Pilar or Lupe or what ever her name is…”

“You mean Consuela, the Nanny who practically raised us…”

“Yes her…Kyle, is this really still up here? It’s one of the ugliest drawings I’ve ever seen…”

“I was 4 when I drew it. I felt like putting up there.”

“Yes well it clashes with the granite countertops.” Kyle breathed in deeply and left to get changed and get the hell out of the house before Margot drove him to drinking a whole bottle of his dad’s 1875 Scotch.

Margot Ogilvie-Nederberg was one of the bitchiest women Kyle had ever known. She was his dad’s little princess and she could do no wrong. She had married a good Christian man and was succeeding in holding up the Ogilvie family tradition of judging everything about a person before getting to know them. She was a known snob with the perfect resting bitch face.  The best way to describe her was as a viper. She was poisonous, not a loveable bone in her body, especially for her little brother, aka Kyle. Just like her husband.

************************************************************************************

His mom had gone out for eggs or something like that and was going to be back at around 6:30, which gave Joe the perfect opportunity to check for Kyle’s file. He knew it was illegal but he just had to know what the hell was going on.

Joe checked the file cabinet for the ‘O’ files, and found one that said ‘Ogilvie, Kyle’. Joe was surprised at how thick it was. It made Alex’s permanent record look like a sheet of rice paper. Joe skimmed for the interesting bits.

Kyle Ogilvie: Date of Birth: February 14th, 2000

Bipolar disorder. Suicide attempts: 2( first time was during his family’s vacation in Barcelona on January 3rd/ 2014; second time, seventeen months later, one June, 20, 2015)

Suicide attempts? Joe was beginning to feel scared for the boy. He knew he was messed up, but he didn’t know that he was so fragile.

Also diagnosed with General Anxiety disorder, parents are anti-pill but have recently caved due to Kyle’s most recent Suicide attempt: June 20th it said.

September 25th 2015…that’s not long ago. The same week that I basically told Kyle to go fuck himself with a chainsaw…

Client complained of kid at school making his life miserable: Client also that his parents were absent once again for Christmas on vacation, leaving Mr. Ogilvie alone for the holidays. Kyle also explained that he was…

What Joe saw was so shocking he almost missed the door knob turning. He quickly put Kyle’s file away and ran out of his mother’s room.

“Joe? Where are you, we’re going to be late.” His mother said as he came out of the kitchen.

“I’m ready…”

“Hold on…why do you look so guilty?”

“I’m not guilty…”

“Mmmhmm. I think I would know my little boy by now, I have known you since you were an embryo. I know that look on your face and it says that you are up to no good. So spill.”

“I got curious…”

“Joseph. Why?” His mother all but screamed at him. She was really pissed off.

“You know me…”

“I do, and then as you, you should know that I have told you since you were 2 years old not to go into my office unless I’m there…”

“But mom…”

“No butts, Joeseph. Do you have any idea how bad this is. Those files are locked by doctor patient confidentiality. If the Ogilvie’s catch wind of you nosing your way into their youngest son’s personal life, they would sue us so much money that we would never ever be able to eat anything more than water ever again. Do I make myself clear?”

“Okay, I’m sorry mom.”

“Right, well you’re grounded until further notice. Don’t forget to brush your teeth.” She said.

***********************************************************************************

Zach so terrified for tonight, he felt his hands clam up, especially when he saw his mom and dad talking to Alex’s parents. 

“Hey Zach.” A voice said behind him. It was Angelika, she did look very pretty tonight.

“Hey.“ he said quietly.

“What?”

“My dad…I never told him about getting kicked off the team.”

“Rough.”

“I’ll say. I don’t know what to do…”

************************************************************************************

Mrs. Clarke had announced earlier that day that each of the Glee Clubbers would have to perform during the interviews. Joe had, for reasons unknown, volunteered to go first.

He had originally asked to do Bootylicious by Destiny’s Child, but he was told that that was going to be inappropriate to perform during a parent’s night. So he then settled on something different; for Kyle’s sake.

“Joe. You’re on.” Mrs. Clarke said.

Joe walked on into the spotlight and among a sea of people saw Kyle with a woman who kind of looked like him, but not really as well as a really pompous looking man who looked bored. Kyle on the otherhand looked absolutely miserable, as did Zach who was busy trying to look like he didn’t care about the fact that his dad had almost walked past the coach.

JOE:

She would not show that she was afraid,

But being and feeling alone was too much to face,

Though everyone said that she was so strong,

What they didn't know is that she could barely carry on,

But she knew that she would be okay,

So she didn't let it get in her way,

Sometimes it all gets a little too much,

But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up,

And you don't have to be afraid, because we're all the same,

And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much,

Kyle, upon realizing that Joe wasn’t singing this song just because, excused himself from the conversation his sister and her husband were having with the President of the Young Republicans society.

JOE:

She would always tell herself she could do this

She would use no help it would be just fine

But when it got hard she would lose her focus

So take my hand and we'll be alright

And she knew that she would be okay,

So she didn't let it get in her way,

Sometimes it all gets a little too much,

But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up,

And you don't have to be afraid, because we're all the same,

And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much, yeah.

A little too much, I said a little too much, oh.

Sometimes it all gets a little too much,

But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up,

And you don't have to be afraid, because we're all the same,

And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much yeah!

Sometimes it all gets a little too much,

But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up,

And you don't have to be afraid, because we're all the same,

And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much.

Kyle felt his skin literally crawling off his body. He knew Joe wouldn’t let shit go. He always has to prove he’s right. It’s not his fault, Joe’s, Kyle was stupid to think he had made a friend in the other kid.

“Kyle? Are you okay?” It was James.

“Yeah, I’m fine.”

“Your sister and I are getting bored so we’re going to head out. This school is too liberal for our liking anyways.”

Of course.

“Okay, see you at home…”

“No you won’t. We’re driving home. And before you ask, no you’re not welcome…I don’t want your kind stinking up the back seat of the convertible.”

“What’s that supposed to mean…”

“Liberal. You’re sister is the one who suggested we leave as soon as we heard you were in the Glee Club. That’s pretty faggy of you. You’re father wouldn’t be impressed.”

Yeah well I wouldn’t want to go to your public orgy with Jeb Bush and Rick Santorum and Sarah Palin anyways, Kyle thought.

“What ever.”

“You’re father wouldn’t approve; of you hanging out with those poor degenerates and queers. Especially that extremely flamboyant one.” James said before he left.

“His name is Joe, and he’s a better person than you will ever be…” Kyle said as he was leaving the abandoned classroom. James didn’t look back and joined his bitch of a sister before getting into their overpriced car and left the school.

“Thanks…” a voice said behind him.

“Yeah, well; not like you deserved it…”

“Kyle…I’m sorry.”

“How could you do that? Do you have this pathological need to always be right?”

“Yeah…for what it’s worth, it’s really cool that you stood up for me.”

“Whatever, you’re lucky I don’t want to press charges.”

“Really?"

“No, I am totally going to sue your ass. Because that would be the best thing for the team.” He said, for the first time in the time Kyle had known him, Joe frowned and looked ashamed. Kyle smiled a sarcastic smile.

“I’m kidding.” Joe felt relieved. But he couldn’t get out of his head what he had read about the tall kid in front of him.

****************************************************

Zach had been talking to Angelika and Lily for a bit now. He hadn’t noticed his father charging towards him, pissed off.

“Zachary.”

“Yeah dad?”

“Is it true that you got kicked off the football team.

ZACH:

There's a moment you know

You're fucked

Not an inch more room

To self destruct

No more moves, oh, yeah

The dead end zone

Man, you just can't call

Your soul your own

“ZACHARY: IS THAT TRUE?” his dad asked.

But the thing that makes you really jump'' is that the weirdest shit is still to come:

You can ask yourself, "Hey what have I done?"' You're just a fly, the little guys, they kill for fun. Zach says to himself

MATT:

Man, you're fucked if you just freeze up

Can't do that thing, that keepin' still

NATE:

But you're fucked if you speak your mind

MATT, NATE and ANGELIKA:

And you know, uh huh, you will

ZACH with the NOTE-WORTHYS:

Yeah, you're fucked all right and all for spite

You can kiss your sorry ass goodbye

Totally fucked, will they mess you up?

Well, you know they're gonna try

ZACH:

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

NOTE-WORTHYS:

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah 

ZACH:

Disappear, yeah, well, you wanna try

Wanna bundle up into some big ass lie

Long enough for them to all just quit

Long enough for you to get out of it

Yeah, you're fucked all right and all for spite

You can kiss your sorry ass goodbye

Totally fucked, will they mess you up?

Well, you know they're gonna try

“Zachary, for the last time, did you get kicked off of the football team?”

“YES, you happy? I hated football. Fucking hated it, dad. I joined the Glee Club and they love me for me…”

“What have you done with my son?”

“Your son’s grown up now…”

“If you’re so grown up: then you can walk home. Honey, lets go.”

ZACH with the NOTE-WORTHYS:

Yeah, you're fucked all right and all for spite

You can kiss your sorry ass goodbye

Totally fucked, will they mess you up?

Well, you know they're gonna try

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Blah blah blah blah blah

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Blah blah blah blah blah

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Blah blah blah blah blah

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Blah blah blah blah blah

“Totally fucked” Zach said to himself, audibly. He didn’t know how to walk home from school. He always got a ride from Alex or Andres.

************************************************************************************

The rest of the night had gone okay. Kyle hung out with Maya and her family for a bit, sung a few songs and for a small while it had all seemed to get better. And then his phone rang.

“Hello?” Kyle answered.

“Kyle, this is your mother.” His mom answered, clearly drunk.

“Hi mom.”

“How was parent’s night?”

“You would know if you had been here, mom…”

“I don’t know what I have done to deserve your tone, young man…”

“It was fine.”

“That’s not what your sister said. She said you managed to embarrass the family and insult her husband within a span of three minutes.”

“So she said…”

“Kyle, the glee club? Really? It’s not a club worth joining. You can’t even sing…”

“Yes I can, mom."

“Sweetie, I’m going to tell you something I have been dying to tell you since you were thirteen: no one likes you. Everyone in our family agrees, you’re an embarrassment. Between going to a rehab for an alcohol problem and getting diagnosed with bipolar disorder: you’re just one big disappointment after another.” His mom said, wasted out of her mind. He knows she would never say this to him when she was sober. But Kyle figured crazy ran in the family.

“Okay, goodbye mother…”

“Goodbye sweetie. Oh I sent your birthday and Christmas presents home.” She said before she hung up.

Kyle felt himself tense up. It was like this everytime one of them called. Maya saw this and immediately went over to him and her mother and Lola followed her.

“Kyle? You okay?” Maya asked but Kyle just shook his head.

“Sweetie, you look pale.” Maya’s mother pointed out. Kyle just walked away, not wanting to be there anymore, but he knew that he didn’t have anywhere better to be, besides a 50,000 square acre mansion all alone. He just couldn’t be in that moment at the moment.

************************************************************************************

“Hey…Syd.” Angelika said behind Sydney. Ali and Becca were busy glaring at her. “Can I talk to you?”

“It’s fine guys.” She said, her two friends walked away. “What?”

“I know things have been rought between us lately…”

“And?”

“I’m sorry for acting like a bitch. But it really hurt…”

“You’re right, you were a bitch. And I can’t keep going through this shit…it’s always me who has to apologize. Sure what I did was wrong but I apologized. Unless you’re here to apologize, you can leave.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Then all is forgiven. Even those shoes.” The two girls hug until Emma pops in out of nowhere.

“Still doesn’t mean I forgive her for those shoes…” Emma said gone in flash.

************************************************************************************

Kyle found an empty classroom. He was trying not to cry, lest anyone should walk in. He felt someone’s eyes on him.

“Go away Frankie.”

“Like I said before, Kyle: I appear at the most stressful or terrifying moments in your life. This can all go away.”

“I’m not supposed to.”

“But it would solve everything, little bro…”

“Kyle?” another voice rang out. Joe stepped from the door.

“What do you want, Joe?”

“You scared everyone out there…”

“I’m not going to off myself, Joe. No need to worry.”

“Are you sure?” He asked.

Kyle just stared at him through the darkness. He wasn’t sure, it had been hanging over him like a dark cloud, a storm brewing inside of him. He was terrified of being alone because he didn’t know what he’d do to himself.

“Frankie has been following me since I was 13.”

“I thought you said he was gone.”

“He’s not.”

“But he’s not real, Kyle. Just choose not to see h…”

“He was real. As real as you or I .”

“But I thought…”

“I lied.”

“What happened?”

“I was 13. I had gotten into a fight at school because some kid called me a ‘fag’ and the teacher took his side. I called Frankie and asked him to come pick me. He was the black sheep in my family. My parents called him the disappointing one. He was 18. It was rainy, like torrential rain. Frankie couldn’t see where he was going when a drunk driver swerved and t-boned his car on his side. Frankie didn’t buckle up his seat belt properly and went flying out of the dashboard window. He didn’t want to pick me up, said it was getting really dark out. But I needed to get away. He died instantly, and all because of me.”

“It wasn’t your fault…”

“If I hadn’t…”

“No, Kyle listen to me; it wasn’t your fault, some asshole had too much to drink and decided to go for a joy ride.”

“He shows up every now and again to warn me against doing something, or to encourage me to do something I know I shouldn’t. But he was…is my hero.”

“Why did you try to kill youself?”

“I couldn’t take it anymore. I felt alone and unloved by my parents. They dropped me off at some school I had never been to before and then left for Europe. They hate how ‘liberal’ I am. When I asked this one time why they hated gay people, they all but took away my chauffer.”

“#RichWhiteBoyProblems… sorry, carry on.”

“Did you know I’m not even out to them? I can’t tell them. As much as I hate them their still my family. It’s better to have a family and be depressed then be depressed with no one…”

KYLE:

When I was just a kid

everything I did, was to be like him

under my skin

My father always thought,

if I was strong and fought

not like some albatross, I'd begin

to fit in

Look at me powerless and holding my breath

trying hard to repress what scared him to death

It was never easy to be his type of man

to breathe freely was not in his plan

and the best part of me

is what he wouldn't see

I'm not my fathers son

I'm not the image of what he dreamed of

JOE:

With the strength of Sparta and the patience of Job,

still couldn't be the one

to echo what he'd done

and mirror what was not in me

KYLE:

The endless story of expectations swirling inside my mind

wore me down

I came to a realization and I finally turned around

to see

that I could just be me

JOE:

I'm not my fathers son

I'm not the image of what he dreamed of

With the strength of Sparta and the patience of Job,

BOTH:

still couldn't be the one

to echo what he'd done

and mirror what was not in me

JOE:

We're the same, Kylie boy,

you and me.

“Kyle, I know we’re not that close…but if you ever needed advice on coming out: you know I’m here? So is the rest of Glee Club, especially Maya. She’s annoying as hell but she loves you so much and she just wants her best friend back.”

“I want me back too. But I can’t get there. I’m tired, Joe. I’m alone and I’m tired.

Joe looked at the other boy who seemed to have so much to live for, but had trouble seeing it for himself. Joe had to tell his mother, Kyle was really beginning to freak him out. Joe just smiled back at Kyle.

************************************************************************************

KYLE:

I used to believe

In the days I was naive

LILY:

That I'd live to see

A day of justice dawn

JOE:

And though I will die

Long before that morning comes

KYLE, JOE AND LILY:

I'll die while believing still

It will come when I am gone

LILY:

Someday

When we are wiser

When the world's older

When we have learned

I pray

Someday we may yet live

To live and let live

JOE (KYLE)

Someday (Someday)

Life will be fairer (Life will be fairer)

Need will be rarer (Need will be rarer)

Greed will not pay  (Not pay)

Godspeed (Godspeed)

KYLE & JOE

This bright millennium

On its way

Let it come someday

Kyle noticed Lily walking home alone. A representative from the orphanage failed to pick her up and the sky was getting dark. Kyle rolled down the window of his town car.

“Lily. Hop in, it’s about to pour…” Kyle said. Lily looked surprise that Kyle was doing this for her. As if on cue, the heavens opened up and the rain fell by the buckets.

“Thanks.

“What are friends for? Where are we headed?”

“St. Mary Margaret of Perpetual Sorrow Orphanage.”

Kyle stared at her blankly. He wasn’t expecting that. Lily was odd, yes. But she didn’t look like an orphan girl. Plus Kyle would be lying to himself if he said that she wasn’t growing on him.

“No you don’t?”

“I don’t?”

“You’re staying with me. For tonight at least.”

“Why are you being so nice to me? You used to hate me…”

“Bruno, I’m trying to be nice. Look, I have a huge mansion all to myself and if I am alone in there I’m not sure what I will do to myself. Plus, no one should have to be alone tonight. It’s a thunderstorm, the power could go out.”

“Won’t your parents mind?”

“My parents hardly care about me…”

“Th-thank you.” She said gratefully, and Kyle would be lying if he said it didn’t warm his heart.

“No problem.”

Someday...

KYLE

Soon

Kyle looked into the mirror, he saw Frankie nod at him with approval as Lily got settled in one of the guest rooms.

“You done good, kid.” Frankie said before fading.

Lily was busy getting her room ready. She had called the orphanage and it was okay as long as she was back at the orphanage after school tomorrow. She saw her phone vibrate. She was afraid of what it would say. But she knew it was another one.

SLUT it said. Lily was feeling on edge. Lily felt useless. She didn’t want to get another one, it was causing her stress. More than usual.

“Lily? You okay?”

“Yeah, I’m fine. Kyle, are you sure this is okay?”

“Even if it wasn’t they would have to suck it up. You’re my friend and you look constantly nervous as if someone is threatening you or something. Besides, you said it was only for one night anyways.”

“And you look like you don’t want to be here anymore.” 

“I guess we both have our problems, huh Bruno?”

“I guess we do.”

The two friends proceeded to watch a movie before heading off to bed.  Kyle felt himself glancing towards his stash of alcohol. It took all of his strength not to take a sip. He popped a Xanax in his mouth and went to sleep. He felt his nerves calm down even if he still didn’t want to wake up in the morning: if he didn’t then it would be a bonus.
