Chapter 1: Cheater
"…So then I said, 'you call that a Trap Card?'" Jaden said as he recounted one of his many duels to Jim. Jim nodded, chuckling slightly. "So I threw down my-!"
"THAT DICKHEADED, FUCKIN', GOOD FER NUTIN' GOD FORSAKEN CHEATIN' MAN WHORE!"
Jim and Jaden both jolted as they heard Jesse's voice echo through the Slifer Red dorm. Jaden momentarily forgot what he was saying and became worried for his best friend. What could have made Jesse so pissed that he was swearing at the top of his lungs?
"Wow, never knew Jesse knew those words," Jim said as the string of swears continued.
"Me either," Jaden said, still in shock, as the swears began to get louder and Jesse came down the stairs.
"I stayed wit 'im for THREE GOD DAMN YEARS and 'e goes and does somethang like THAT?" Jesse snapped, throwing open the door of the living room and storming through. He barely glanced at Jaden and Jim and muttered, "Mornin'." He then stalked over to the fireplace and sat down in front of it, still swearing under his breath.
"Jesse, you wanna tell me what happened?" Jaden asked as he took a seat next to his friend.
"I'm taking Shirley for a walk," Jim said before bolting out of the dorm room.
"Bad break up," Jesse muttered, glaring at the blazing fire in front of him.
"You were dating someone?" Jaden asked in shock.
"Fer three years!" Jesse snapped, wanting to punch something. "There's a reason I hate people from California. They're all stuck up, no good asses who think with their dicks and don't give a flying fuck who they hurt!" Jaden winced but stayed quiet. He figured this would be a bad time to tell Jesse that he too was from California. "I never want to see his two-timing face again…"
"Who's?" Jaden asked, placing a comforting hand on Jesse's back.
"Syrus," Jesse deadpanned. "MY EX! Who else?"
"Whoa, no need to scream," Jaden said, taking a step back. Jesse took a deep breath and visibly calmed.
"Sorry, Jay, I'm just really irritable today…" Jesse muttered. He pulled his legs up to his chest and wrapped his arms around them.
"Wanna tell me what happened?" Jaden asked, coming to sit next to Jesse again.
"So Derek holds this amazing party every year before Christmas," Jesse started. "He invited me every year, but North Academy never let me leave campus, even though it's over a break! So this year, I talked to Sheppard and risked expulsion to go! Expulsion, Jay!"
"But you can go, what's the problem?" Jaden asked, not really understanding where the problem is.
"Well, I was plannin' to spend this entire week in Dixie with 'im," Jesse said, clearly starting to get more and more agitated. "I was gonna fly out Monday, spend the day with 'im today, tomorrow's the party, stay Thursday, and then leave Friday!"
"So then why are you still here?" Jaden asked, getting very, very confused.
"'E texted me yesterday, HOURS before I was supposed to get on the plain, and said I was disinvited," Jesse snapped, glaring at the fire. "I can't stand 'im anymore! I want that fucker outta mah life fer good this time!"
"This time?" Jaden asked, sweat dropping. He almost didn't want to know the answer.
"Yeah, this time…" Jesse growled. "'E was such an ass that I would break up with 'im fer like, an hour or two and then we'd get back together… Well now I'm sick of it! I never want to have anything to do wit 'im again!"
"Why did he disinvite you? It doesn't make any sense," Jaden asked, feeling a little awkward.
"'Cause 'e said 'e dun want me to meet 'is friends. Said it'd be awkward since I dun know any of 'em," Jesse muttered, resting his chin on his knees.
"Well that's a bit… asshole-ish," Jaden said bluntly. "I don't know any other way to phrase it…" Jesse was about to say something, but Jaden cut him off saying, "And please don't start swearing again. It's freaking me out."
"Sorry, Jay, I get like that when I'm pissed…" Jesse said with a sigh.
"And your accent gets thicker too," Jaden said with a chuckle.
"Dang, really? I never noticed," Jesse admitted, chuckling too.
"There's the Jesse I know," Jaden said with a smile. "Come on, what's it going to take to cheer you up?"
"Slasher flicks and things explodin'," Jesse deadpanned, making Jaden jolt.
"Really? You're into that stuff?" Jaden asked wearily.
"What? Ya can't handle gore, Jay?" Jesse sneered, chuckling a little.
"I can handle gore fine!" Jaden retorted. "I just didn't know you had a strong stomach."
"What's that mean?" Jesse snapped, smirking a little. "That's it, we're going down to tha library, gettin' the goriest movies we can find, and then we'll see who has the weak stomach!"
"Or we can settle this like men," Jaden said, hand going for his deck.
"What, with a children's card game?" Jesse asked with a laugh.
Jaden couldn't hold it in anymore. He burst out into laughter, making Jesse jump a little. He fell onto his back and started rolling around laughing. Jesse had no idea if this was Jaden attempt to cheer him up, but it was working. Jesse also started laughing, already feeling his spirit lifting.
"Come on, let's get those slasher movies," Jaden said with a laugh as he stood.
