Groaning, I started to roll over from where I lay. I could barely make it an inch before being held back down. I looked up, remembering last night.
Oh god, I couldn't go out there. Not now. Not anymore.
Shaking off the thought, I smiled. I was in Ryan's arms. His eyes were lightly closed, his face lacking expression. He looked peaceful when he slept.
Deciding to stay where I was, I managed to turn onto my back and glance at the clock.
The others were no where near awake yet that means. Maybe me and Ryan could leave before they awoke.
"Ryan." I whispered, scooting back onto my stomach. I felt bad for waking him up, but maybe he could just come to my house or something. Somewhere where he actually felt welcome. Too bad I can't drive.
"Ry." I whispered louder, teaching my arms up and cupping his face. I hit his cheeks lightly, and he started to stir. For a split second his grip tightened, but then it loosened. He lifted his arms to stretch, and his body flexed again

I felt bad for Ryan, yeah. I think it was my fault though, I might've gotten...too close for when the others were around.
"Hey Spence, is it cool of we sleep in the rat's room?"
He nodded towards us, going back to talking to Gerard.
My best friend, ignoring me.
I pulled Ryan's wrist to the room across the hall, bringing my blue cover and heart pillow. I put them on the fluffy carpet, sitting down criss-cross, patting the ground next to me. Ryan sat down, putting his chin in his hands.
"Hey, don't be bummed out by that, Ryan. It'll be fine, I know it. They can't deal with a couple guys being friends, can they?" I stifled a laugh, but it turned into a sigh. Deciding I should be playful to cheer him up, I grabbed his shoulders and laid back quickly. He squeaked, curling up as he fell beside me. We both ended up laughing, and I loved Ryan's laugh. I stopped to admire it, but then he noticed I was staring. My smile fading, I turned my head forward and scratched my forehe

It had been about an hour or two from when I hugged Ryan. I still couldn't believe that he's never been hugged before. Ever since then, in the past hour, I hadn't really let go of him. It was about 11:30, so that makes...1 and a half hours of me just hugging a basically stranger. But h didn't seem to mind. Up and down the stairs, across the hallway, playing video games, I had my arms around his shoulders and he just kept going on with life like I was a parrot on a pirate.
But I liked that.
I should get to know Ryan. He seemed like a nice person, and lonely. I think he needed a friend, and that should be me!
Maybe even more..
Shut up, Brendon.
I wrapped my arms around his shoulders and let him practically drag me down the stairs after Spencer's mom yelled that the pizza was here. All the other guys hurried ahead of us, but Ryan didn't seem to be in a hurry. He reached up to grab my arm, and kept walking like I was a scarf he was holding. I laughed as we reached the kitchen

The rest of the day we all played around inside, since it was too cold outside to function. I had loosened up, but only to Brendon and Gerard though. Now we were taking turns on Call Of Duty, right now it was Patrick and Pete (yes they were the same character) against Gerard. He was good, I have to say. Really good. Pete and Patrick just screamed at the tv, running around and shooting aimlessly. Pete had the controller and the other was leaned over his back, grabbing his shoulders and yelling directions. None of it was working. I laughed.
Right now It was about 10 pm, and I sat across the room with Brendon. He stood up, telling Spencer he was going to show me the rats.
Rats?! My breath stopped. I'd never held a rat, from what my mom said, I should be scared of them!
I followed him into a room across the hallway, almost empty except a couple gaming chairs, a table and a tv. In the corner was a big cage, two fluff balls in it. One gray, one white. Oh god, those are rats. Actua
