The Break Up
This was something I thought up a long while back (with a modification in recent times to the area of where the story takes place and I think I originally thought of it in High School (06 graduate!) but I might be wrong) and even wrote out the break up scene but later lost it. So thanks to some input, I finally wrote out the first chapter and so far this is all I've done due to being so focused on fan fic writing. Enjoy!
Oahu, Hawaii in a Parking Lot
A lone skinny teen figure with short black hair could be seen sitting on the hood of his 1980 grey colored Firebird in a seldom used parking lot in his little corner of the world. The young man was currently waiting on his girlfriend to show up as she had something she needed to talk with him about. What that was, Brian had no clue of but he hoped like Hell it didn't involve some big serious shopping trip! As those were horrible given the fact she had a near unlimited credit card she could do whatever the Hell she wanted with thanks to her father being one of the richest men around. Making her essentially the richest teenager around and because of it, was a self-centered spoiled brat that he had somehow fallen for. Something his grandfather made his opinion known on many times. As the old man wondered how his dumbass grandson could put up with a girl like that. Which was probably the only decent thing he had to say about his grandson given the fact he had little love for Brian. Why that was, the young man had no clue about and hated it greatly. Even long ago having given up on trying to gain the old man's favor instead of his cold disdain. The sound of an approaching car drew in Brian's attention and he slid off his car as it was his girlfriend finally showing up.
Even though she was supposed to have been there 30 minutes ago! But that was his girlfriend for you, always making you wait. Nalani Keahi sighed at the sight of her boyfriend Brian. Whom she'd been with for several years now and had him tightly wrapped around her finger by this point. Her being 17 while Brian was 18 and both were eager to enjoy a nice Summer before their final year of High School. Though how she planned to enjoy her's was perhaps the more important thing then anything he might have planned. Nalani knew how good she had it and didn't care who's face she rubbed it in. Which included that racist old jerk of a grandfather of her boyfriend's. She waited for him to come to her sleek purple and black Bentley and open her door for her as she had trained him to do. As no way did she open her own car door if she had too thank you very much! “Thank you darling.” Cooed the dark haired beauty in her light green dress and high heels as he helped her out.
“For you? Anything at anytime, anywhere.” Brian told her with a smile as he leaned in and pecked her on the lips.
Not that she responded in kind but he paid little attention to that as he was used to her ways by that point. She walked past him, feeing even more sure in her decision that she intended to make on this day as she stared at the Firebird that had once been his mother's. The very same Firebird she had willingly allowed herself to lose her virginity in to Brian despite it being horribly low class in her mind. But she blamed it entirely on the Alcohol both had been drinking at the time. Alcohol that actually had belonged to his grandfather and that old geezer had been none too pleased it had been used by them either for that matter! “So, what'd you want to talk about?” Wondered her boyfriend after he had closed her door and wrapped his arms around her from behind.
But to his confusion, she pulled away and turned to look at him. “About us, actually.”
I hope she's not gonna get insistent about rings again. As despite the job he had, its not like he could afford a promise ring that would match up to her expensive tastes!
Which could get damned annoying at times but he kept quiet as he knew his girlfriend wouldn't hear of it and be likely to cold shoulder him. “Alright, what about us exactly?”
“Well, I've been thinking and I think we should break up.”
Well now… Color him surprised as that had been the LAST thing he had expected from her! He gave her a look of confusion as he cleaned out his ear. “Uhh, say what now? Cause I SERIOUSLY don't think I heard you right, babe.”
Nalani merely shrugged her shoulders as she looked at him. “You heard me correctly, I'm breaking up with you as I feel our relationship is in need of a break so I can have some air so to speak.” Harsh but true as her now ex gaped at her in shock.
As Brian could see she was deadly serious about the whole thing and it sucked! Nalani couldn't wait to meet new boys during this Summer and knew Brian wouldn't be meeting any girls considering how in love he is with her. And would no doubt be moping a good deal of the time over her. Which is just how she preferred it until she chose to take him back and he would be profoundly happy for it! “If… If you wanted some air or whatever, you coulda just told me to leave you alone for a week and I woulda done it!”
“Maybe. But this is way better. And given I'm a girl and rich, I'm very right on this. Now, be a dear and walk me back to my car and open the door for me.” Ordered the girl as she walked past him after giving him a pat on his chest.
To her delight, he did so without even realizing it due to how shocked he was over the whole thing. Even taking a few steps in the direction of her Bentley once it drove off until he stopped and starred at the leaving vehicle until he couldn't see it anymore. So in shock as he was, he failed to notice the appearance of two guys behind him. Both of whom were said to practically be the Jay and Silent Bob of Oahu with Jeremy being completely silent since he was mute and relied on Sign Language to communicate with people. Which had taken Derek a considerable amount of time to learn given how he often got high despite the fact his best friend could understand him perfectly well. “Dude, we should jack this sweet ass ride.”
Jeremy gave him a look that basically said he didn't approve of that idea. “Oh come on, Beefy Silence! It'd get us a good score and you know it!” Retorted the skinnier of the two with an annoyed look on his face.
The response he got wasn't necessarily to his liking as he could care less why the dude seemed to be starring off into space. But Jeremy would be insistent on the matter until he got Derek to agree. Causing him to groan in annoyance. “Ohh for fuck's sake man! Fine! Hey dude, what the Hell's wrong with you?”
No answer was given, prompting the Stoner to come up behind Brian and tap him on the shoulder. Which got the guy to turn around all of a sudden and make Derek jump back with a yell at the unexpected action! Both boys could see the shell shocked expression on the guy's face and Jeremy signed to his best friend. “Hah! Yeah, he does look he swallowed somethin' bad don't he? You got anything in that coat of yours to help him get over it?” Hell, he'd smoke some too!
Jeremy checked his pockets and then gave a thumb's up to his best friend with some questionable habits like stealing the cars of little old ladies. “WHOO! Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Dude, you wanna get high with us? Least we can do before we jack your sweet ride.” Offered up the man while his best friend rolled his eyes over the whole thing.
“She… Break… No more girlfriend?” Muttered out Brian finally and confusing the two a great deal.
Well, Derek at any rate more then Jeremy! “Say what now?” Cause what the Hell was that!?
Brian finally seemed to notice the two guys in front of him. One of whom seemed to be doing something or other with his hands. “Ohh! Dude! You got dumped!? That's some sucky shit right there! Now I feel bad about wantin' to steal your ride.” Maybe they could steal it another time?
Seemed like the right thing to do considering how bad off the guy was at the moment! But the skinny dude said nothing as he came walking past the two. “Romance and shit man. Not my bag at all, you know?”
Jeremy just nodded in agreement since it was far easier then trying to change his best friend's mind. “Damn right you know! All you need in life is a chick willin' to get freaky with ya and some really good Weed. But the chick can't be the kinda chick who wants some of your Weed as I just don't roll like that!”
A sigh and an eyeroll came from his best friend. As it wasn't the first time he'd heard the guy say that and knew it likely wouldn't be the last either. Making him wonder yet again if he should haul ass before what sanity he had left went completely out the window thanks to Derek. The sound of a car roaring to life captured their attention and when they turned to see who was doing that so close to them. The two were surprised to see the guy from before in his ride spinning around wildly in his Firebird and throwing up dirt into the air as he did so! “WHOOOOOO!” Could even be heard coming from inside the car as well.
“DAMN SON!” Yelled out Derek excitedly as his best friend nodded his head rapidly in agreement!
