A/N: I was watching Rent Friday night and when Angel's funeral came on, I couldn't stop looking at Benny. Not because he's extremely hot, but because I was wondering what he was thinking the whole time he was there. Enjoy!
Mimi and I entered the church silently. I took a seat in the second row and Mimi walked up to Angel's casket where Collins was. Why the hell am I here? I didn't know Angel. Hell, I wasn't even friends with these people.
"What the hell are you doing here?"
I looked up and saw Maureen's eyes filled with fire.
"I'm here with Mimi." I answered calmly.
She gave me a smirk. Before she could say anything Mark motioned for her to sit down.
"Hi, Benny." Mark said softly.
"Hey." I greeted standing up.
We shook hands and stood there quietly.
"Are you two going back out?" I asked.
"No." Mark said looking at her.
I looked at her too and realized she wasn't dressed like a slut.
"I better go." Mark said looking over my shoulder.
I turned around and saw Roger dragging his feet down the ale. I felt so sorry for him, but at the same time was pissed off…. How can he abandon someone he loves so much? I just don't understand….. Why the hell am I here? Why do I keep asking myself this question?
The funeral started and Mimi was the first to talk. I never knew how close she and Angel were. It was like they were…..um…I guess sisters. I don't know much about cross dressers. Mark spoke and said more amazing things about Angel.
And this was the person who killed my dog? Wow!
When Maureen spoke I was shocked. I hade never seen her so mature and grown up. The more good things I heard about Angel, the more I feel in love with he or she. I snapped out of my thoughts when it was Collins turn, he sung a song that moved us all and I felt a tear run down my cheek. He loved Angel to death. I had never seen someone show so much love.
Once Angel was buried, we slowly walked up the hill towards the exit of the cemetery.
It's true you sold your guitar and bought a car?
Why did she have to say something to him?
It's true - I'm leaving now for Santa Fe
It's true you're with this yuppie scum?
You said you'd never speak to him again
Who said that you have any say in who she says things to at all?
She just had to open her big mouth.
Who said that you should stick your nose in other people's...
Who said I was talking to you?
We used to have this fight each night
She'd never admit I existed
Those two have serious problems
He was the same way - he was always
"run away - hit the road don't commit" you're full of shit!
She was only making things worse.
She's in denial
He's in denial
Didn't give an inch when I gave a mile
Guys, come on
I gave a mile
Gave a mile to who?
MARK & BENNY
Come on guys chill!
Mark and I were getting frustrated. How could they act like that on the day of their best friends funeral?
MIMI & JOANNE ALL
I'd be happy to die for a taste of what Angel had,
someone to live for - unafraid to say I love you
All your words are nice Mimi but love's not a three-way street
you'll never share real love until you love yourself - I
You all said you'd be cool today so please for my sake...
I can't believe he's gone
I can't believe you're going
I can't believe this family must die
Angel helped us believe in love
I can't believe you disagree
I can't believe this is good-bye
Roger walked off like he always did and left Mimi crying. After Maureen and Joanne left, the minister asked for the bill. I decided to pay, because I knew they didn't have any money and I wasn't about to let a good person like Angel be buried in a cardboard box and thrown somewhere.
"To make things fair, I think I should tell you that you just paid for the funeral of the person who killed your dog." Collins said laughing.
"Yeah, I always hated that dog." I said truthfully.
A/N: That's it! Tell me what you think. No flamers.
