    Summary

    I stare out the window as the rain falls from the sky; not fast and hard but instead slow and steady.

    Just like she was

    She was the only person who could keep me right; was the calm, soothing ice to my hot and painful personality. We worked well together, but now she's gone.

    We used to look up into the stars and think of what would happen if stars were the close beautiful lights that people thought shone on Earth, instead of the hot ball of gas that they actually are. What would it be like if the rain came from the beautifully destructive stars?

    Summary

    It wasn’t as if he was a drugged-out meth zombie with rotting teeth and skin falling off his face – no, he only had a few scabs from how itchy the heroin made him when he shot up.

    Summary

    The pair did not have much: a mattress lifted from a dumpster, a few blankets, a trash bag full of Jimmy’s things and a suitcase full of hers, a thrift-store coffee machine, dollar store coffee, a jumbo pack of Ramen, four packs of cigarettes, a lighter, a few milk crates, an assortment of chipped dishes, two pairs of secondhand boots, a six-pack of beer, a battered notebook, a tiny bag of dope in Jimmy’s jacket pocket, a radio, a cassette player, a box of tapes, and a miscellaneous assortment of items of little note. Paradise.

    Summary

    Heather couldn't take this anymore, all his beer and weed and lazing around waiting for them to return, for something to happen. Their son shouldn't have to deal with it either, which is probably why she was leaving.

    Summary

    Madison Buddington isn't old enough to remember what the world was like before the Society took hold. She is old enough to remember her brother's funeral after he ran off with American Idiot, a underground rebel group notorious for its swift and sudden resistance attacks that leave hundreds dead and wounded in its wake. The Society has one rule above all others: Normalcy is accepted. Placidity is preferred.

    Madison likes her job. She likes her quiet apartment life. She likes the Society's benevolent guidance in her life.

    Abrupt change is rarely painless.

    Jesus leads a life of disorder and disarray, lonely and apathetic, until he leaves home one day with hardly anything on his back.

    Summary

    Gemma and her roommates were out enjoying their night off work at one of their favorite spots, Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. A mystery musician was puzzled as to why this woman he just met was asking if he still played music and if his band played at Gilman often, relieved that she did not recognize that he was Billie Joe Armstrong, lead singer of Green Day.

    *Disclaimer* Usual stuff, I do not own Green Day, any of the members, their songs, their families, etc. Some characters are original and I do own them.

    Summary

    The glowing ghoulish digital clock on the oven said it was somehow already half past seven. I guess thunderstorms can really change the look of the sky. The sunrise was hidden behind clouds of smoke and darkness. I sighed at the thought of not seeing it today.
    Those were the kind of things that kept my mid distracted from the current state of my world: politics, my boyfriend and his "condition", the shaking in my legs and panic in my head.
