Sitting in the back, like the always. Wade...Unique...I still don’t know how to classify Unique. I respect his/her choice. However, cannot begin to understand how to classify her. He is a he and He is a she. It is beyond confusing.
Right now, he/she is performing an amazing rendition of “Good Man” by some chick named India Arie. I think, she is from Africa or something. Whatever.All I know is something in me, feels different. I can’t quite understand is this feeling.
After practice, I decided to meet up with the guys. I am walking to the door to exit the school and see Kitty waiting for me there. Here we go again. Probably her gloating in my face again that Jake won Marley.
“So. Ryder?”, Kitty said suspiciously. “Kitty? What you want now? Gonna bring up Marley choosing Jake for the tenth time.”“No. Is it true, you gotta a crush on Pre-Opt Chaka Chan?”“What? Me? No, I am straight.”
“You sure? It seemed to me you wanted all her jelly. I guess, what they say is true. Glee Club does turn the good ones queer.”“Kitty, I don’t like Unique like that. Okay?”, beginning to walk away.
Truth is, I don’t even know how I truly feel for Unique. I am straight, but I just can’t begin to grasp these emotions, I have for her. Does that make me, Bi-Curious? Or Confused?
Finally, I made it to the Lima Bean before I went insane. Blaine, Sam, Artie were there. Jake and Joe, were not able to come. Joe had to go to some religious convention. Jake had to help Marley with some project. Feelings I have for Marley are still strong. However, she made her choice. That choice being Jake. Then, there is Unique: Smart, Sassy, Excellent Singer, and still a...Man!
“Well...Are you gonna sit with us? Or, are we gonna have to go get you?”, Blaine asked snapping me out of my daze.
“oh yea...Be right there.” “Ryder, where have you been?”. Sam asked“Sorry, I was late. Kitty stopped me to talk.”
“Oh. So, you finally fell under her web?”“What do you mean? Like dating her?”“Well duh. She has kinda been all over you.”“Kitty and I, are never gonna be...”
“He probably not over Marls.”, Artie cuts me off.“I am over Marley, Artie.”
All of the sudden, I see Unique dead centered. With her Aretha Franklin wig and platinum purple dress. She wore today. Why is she poping up? This is just becoming a recurring nightmare.
“Yo dude, we kind of still here.”, Artie breaking me out of my trance this time. “Didn’t get that much sleep last night. “Hot Damn. I wonder why...”
“Enough about my love life. What have you guys been up to?”
After a couple of hours, of Sam’s amazingly bad impressions. Blaine plotting against Mrs Sylvester. And Artie talking about his League of Legends guild. I asked, Blaine for a ride home. I live, kinda far and it was already late.
“Ryder, so you don’t like Kitty?”“For the last time, I do not like Kitty! She is Puck’s territory. Probably, the only one who could handle her.”“Just curious. Haven’t been yourself since Marley chose Jake.”
“She has nothing to do with anything!”
Truth is, Marley is always on my mind. Along with Unique...
“F@ck Ryder! Calm it down. I was just asking. Besides, I could use you to get rid of Becky. She has been all over me. Been all over my nuts, since I joined the Cheerios.“Artie is single?”
“I tried. She thinks, she is too good for him.”
“Wow. That is sad. When Becky, thinks she is too good for someone.”
“I know right.”
As we drive up to my house, I noticed that my Mom is home. However, my Dad hasn’t come back yet. Probably another long day at the office again...
“Ryder?”, Blaine stopping me in my tracks. “Blaine?”
“Umm...Just wanted to tell you. You know, you can talk to me. You know, if anything is bothering you.”
“I’ll make sure you’re the first person. Okay dude.”
As he drives, I walk up to my door. What the hell? ‘You know, you can talk to me.’ What does is that supposed to mean? Does everyone think, I like Unique. Or, he could possibly think I am emotional fucked from Marley.
I was too preoccupied to realize; I was standing inside my house already. My mom was right in front of me.
“Hi Mom, can’t talk right now. Got a lot of homework.”
I run up to my room and close the door. Leaving myself with my thoughts.
I lay on my bed trying to clear my thoughts. I start to think about what am I going to sing for my Regional’s solo audition song. I am beginning to imagine Unique’s performance again. Is it because I want Unique. Or, is it because my mind is playing tricks on me? Today has been a rollercoaster of feelings. Also, there is Marley. With her light brown hair. Amazing Blue eyes. Her striking timid personality that doesn’t fail to ever make me feel happy inside. What am I saying? Jake won. Marley is Jake’s girl. I promised them, I wouldn’t try anything anymore. I should stop torturing myself. And sleep on it.
I am starting to fall asleep...”Hello Love.”, Unique says.
