Kelsey got in the car with Ray after leaving the party not saying much but hoping that Ray would just drive home and ignore her for the rest of the night. She was tired and her leg hurt from falling on it and lets not forget that she was a little intoxicated. She smiled slightly to herself remembering how concerned Ian had gotten but that thought was quickly thrown away when Ray grabbed her arm, “I’m never going to one of your friends lame parties again.. this was not fun and now I have to try and salvage my night after I fix my fucking face thanks to you and your stupidity” he said. His words hit her straight in the gut and they pulled off into the quiet neighborhood.
The water pounded on his abused body, releasing tension, locating knots in places he hadn’t even known existed. Slowly, the heat drained from the water until only frigid water poured out. As with other days when the demons in his head were way too close and their voices much too loud for comfort, Gabriel had pushed his body beyond the point of exertion. Running until his legs felt like rubber, pumping weights until his arms resembled jelly and felt like they would fall off, only stopping when his heart felt like it would surely implode.
Gabe pushed the wet strands of his hair out of his face. They’d grown longer than he usually kept them, but weren’t quite at the point of annoying, so he’d decided to allow them to grow out a bit more. After all, hair was really the least of his issues nowadays. With only a towel wrapped around his waist and water still dripping down his chest, Gabe made his way to his room, determined to turn in early. He’d spent the majority of the afternoon debating whether or not to attend the party, finally settling on a book and his bed.
Striding into his bedroom, Gabe flipped on the switch. It took a few moments before he realized why the room felt different. “Kels,” he called to the girl huddled on his floor. There was something off about her. Quickly pulling on a pair of shorts, Gabe sat besides the girl he’d come to think of as a younger sister. “Kelsey, what’s wrong,” he asked, for the first time noticing the bruising on her face. For as long as he’d known the Brooks’, he’d never seen any of them ever leave the home looking quite like this. “What happened?” he asked, panic stricken but afraid to touch her.
They were gay lovers who didn’t have bowel movements. Nothing too questionable….hmm, maybe that’s why our generation is more accepting than others.
Ehh… you’ve probably got a point there.
Come on!? CatDog doesnt even get a mention? Although, I kind of watched real stuff rather than cartoons, at least I liked them more.
You’re telling me that CatDog wasn’t just a tiny bit questionable for you?

‘Most’ being the key word there, babe. My experiences have taught me that the parent believes the kids a parasite before they slowly turn into the mooche themselves…
Unfortunate but it doesn’t really affect the way cartoons are nowadays. They’re nothing like the ones I used to watch. I mean, nothing can really compare to Recess and Hey Arnold.
Yeah but what about the poor parents? They already have to deal with a little parasite now their childhood memories are being ruined.
Somehow Chlo, I don’t think most parents are worrying about childhood memories or thinking of their kids as parasites.
It’s weird and why are all these new shows in that weird bubble 3D form? They changed Mickey, Gabe! You’re not allowed to mess with the mouse.
Well, if you think about it, the kids that are watching those shows nowadays won’t really complain about the changes since they’ve never seen the originals.
Exactly!! Ever hear of Sophia The First. Its so annoying, she got some fairy god mother and became a special snowflake princess……sorry, i cant find my remote and the tv was stuck on disney junior, I got sucked into watching…
I’ve never heard of Sophia the First and don’t worry, I’m not laughing at your series of unfortunate events.
