Derek looked so cute and peaceful when he was sleeping. He snored like a damn chainsaw though, oh my gosh! I got up and pulled the fuzzy blanket off of the old loveseat and laid it on top of him and kissed his cheek. As I was walking away the temperature dropped by a few degrees and the air began to stiffen.
I’ve known Derek since we were in 7th grade math class together. We became friends right away, but I didn’t take a real interest in him until 10th grade. It wasn’t like anything changed, just my view of him. He suddenly seemed different and more attractive. That’s also when he began to start growing his hair out to be swishy, I loved the way it fell into his face and he effortlessly moved out of the way.
I walked around the corner to Derek’s bedroom where the thermostat is and turned up the heat. As winter began to creep up, the power began to randomly give out, leaving the house to feel as cold as a dead body. Only Zane and I would know that though. About 2 weeks ago is when Zane started making his… Well, let’s just say they’re his interesting appearances. That was around the same time that the man behind the shed was murdered.
Derek thought that he had prevented me from seeing the leg stick out from behind the shed, but I already knew. It was impossible for me to not know. Poor Derek had no idea who that man was or what had happened to him. I didn’t mean for Derek to get involved, but he made it impossible for him to not be. If you wouldn’t have snuck up on me that night, none of this would have happened.
Zane had been stalking me for eight months and now he’s trying to ruin my life in the after life. Not only that but he’s ruining Derek’s life now too! I didn’t want it to come to this, but Zane deserved it. I sat down on the edge of Derek’s Queen size bed, the dork has Star Wars bedsheets on. I made a mental sidenote to buy him some nicer bedsheets. Speaking of mental sidenotes, I have to watch out for Zane, he knows too much about the whole situation and he’s going to ruin Derek. Derek thinks I’m the one who needs protecting, but it’s actually him that does.
I looked around Derek’s room, and saw all the pictures of us together throughout the years. I yawned so big that it hurt my jaw. Today has been so long, I might as well try to sleep now. Surely one appearance of Zane took enough energy for it not to happen again until tomorrow. I pulled back his R2D2 blanket and snuggled up beneath it, resting my head on his C3PO pillow. It smells just like him, I can’t wait until I live with him and can sleep here every night. Thank God he doesn’t know that I…
