20 Weeks – Chapter 10 (Part 1)
“I don’t know, why are you asking me?”
“Because Candi is holding your guitar, and I can’t find her.
“What do you mean Candi has my guitar?”
“Over there, Candi is playing your guitar…” Cory said, pointing to the Latino man with the gold tooth and the blue mohawk.
“I dunno, I swapped it for Bijuu’s Jeep. I guess she gave it to Candi,” Bijuu’s older and much dumber brother told the boy who secretly loved her.
“She swapped you a Jeep she’s not even done paying for, for that piece of shit guitar… why?” Cory asked, now madder than he’d ever been.
“I don’t know, and I don’t care.”
“Well, do you care that the Jeep’s not here, and that Adam and Steve are now tied to her bed, and from the looks of it they’ve been branded?”
“Pardon?” the tall blonde with the steel-blue eyes asked, as if he’d just found out aliens really do exist.
“She asked me to help her get a little revenge. I didn’t… I didn’t know she was actually going to… permanently disfigure them,” Cory said, with a tinge of guilt coloring his face red.
“Show me,” the boy who could be as cold and as hard as iron said, without an ounce of wobble in his voice.
“I helped her tie them to the bed. She said she was just gonna scare them. But when I came back… this is how I found ‘em,” Cory told the boy who stood a good seven-inches taller than him.
“Why? Why would she do this?” Chad asked of the kid he know thought of him as his ‘best friend’, though for Chad’s part the feeling only went one way.
“You know, man… because of your birthday party,” the normally cheerful Cory said in such a glum fashion it instantly stood Chad’s arm-hair on end.
“What about my birthday party?”
“I thought you knew… that you’d heard…” Cory said, not knowing what words to choose.
“Everyone else knows…” he added lamely, and then instantly wanted to scoop the words back into his mouth.
“Everyone knows what?” Chad growled, as he stared at the two fellas he used to call ‘friend’.
