Bobby (Dust)Location: The Hammer
Bobby tried not to feel dissipointed when Alanis ignored him. She'd seen him, he knew she had, and then... nothing. Like he'd never even existed.
He wanted to be angry, hurt, to yell, but the truth was... he wasn't angry. Just a little crushed. That's how these things worked, right? The popular kids only had time for your when it was in their best interest. Truth was he'd seen this coming from a mile away.
But he had hoped maybe things would be different....
But things weren't different. For all the things that had almost come to an end nothing in his life had really changed except Raven.
His best friend, who suffered from a name as silly as Tuff with the additional stigma of being one of the few gay guys in town, had dissapeared. Raven wasn't the sort to just run off, so Bobby had been worried. He'd sent e-mails to every account Raven had ever used, called anybody he'd ever met, texted every number Raven had ever used, but.... nothing.
The only sign he'd ever existed was the usual jeers at school, now asking him where his "girlfriend" was, Raven's boyfriend who was too shaken up about the whole thing still to be of any help to anybody, and Raven's mom who wasn't much better off.
And with his parents being pissed at him for running off without warning when the world ended...
It wasn't the best month in existance.
And now... he wasn't sure why he'd come in here.
Actually that wasn't true, he knew exactly why he'd come in here. He glanced back at Alanis who was still ignoring him, and went back to looking at his Hot Chocolate.
That and he'd hoped Raven might have shown up. Maybe he'd had something weird happening to him too. He wanted to talk to him about it...
Then every hair on his body stood on end."Woah, did you feel that?"
He asked, glancing over at Sebastian who was standing next to him.
Then he heard the new football player at the same time he saw the sparks, "Holy crap! Electrical fire. Get the breaker, I'll get the extinguisher."
He ran over to the corner where the fire extingisher was kept. He wasn't a part of the usual crowd, but one of the advantages of being the best friend of the owner's kid was you got to spend a lot of time all around the place, checking out things most people didn't know existed. He knew where all the cool stuff was, and where the fire extinguishers were.
He just hadn't really expected it to be that heavy, as he pulled it off the wall. It was a stylish number, looked great in the coffee shop, but it felt like it was made of lead."Uh, little help?"
He called over to the football player.
