So here's chapter 2 with a brand new OC. Originally I was planning on making one or two one off stories but since I couldn't figure out how to end chapter one, and since someone vaguely suggested I make a series using different songs (by which I mean they got me distracted enough to think of it) then I might do that. Anyways I'm rambling so enjoy!

As Leo began to speak, Aeris fled to her room. She needed space and she knew Leo wouldn't rest until she gave him an answer. "I should have known he was in love with me! Think of all of those things I've done to him!" Aeris whispered to herself.

Memories consume
like opening the wound.
"I'm picking me apart again.
You all assume,
I'm safe here in my room,
unless I try to start again..."

"But that's what I wanted isn't it? When Angela convinced me to stop cutting myself I promised I would only take my anger out on others and not myself!" The pink furred feline couldn't help but clutch her ribs as she assured herself, feeling all the scars (both mental and physical) from her troubled high school years.

"Clutching my cure
I tightly locked the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more
Than any time before
I had no options left again
"

"No that's not true is it? Sure I was desperate last night when I got home but Angela would freak out if she found me committing self harm again so I stopped and called her."

"I don't want to be the one
the battles always choose,
'Cause inside I realize
that I'm the one confused.
"

She had told Angela all about it and when she said those words Angela had mentioned that she should talk to Leo about it. "But now his feelings are just going to get in the way when I ask for advice, not that he's going to have any feelings if I tell him about the scars." Aeris began to sob quietly to herself.

"I don't know what's worth fighting for,
or why I have to scream!
I don't know why I instigate
and say what I don't mean!"
"I don't know how I got this way
I know it's not alright!
So I'm breaking the habit,
I'm breaking the habit tonight!"

With that promise Leo's roommate (and possibly new lover) stood up and repeated her new creed until she had calmed down enough to reveal her secrets to the grey fur ball. However, unbeknownst to her, Leo had heard the whole thing through a secret microphone he had hidden in her autographed picture of Captain Picard during one of his more perverted journeys into her room. At first he felt pity and then rage that the bullies they were both tormented by had harmed her so much, and decided to make his own motto. "I will always defend her even if that madman in a box comes back!" Leo declared to his silent room.

"I'll paint it on the walls
'Cause I'm the one that falls
I'll never fight her again!"
And this is how it ends.

Thanks for reading so far! I've only had one review so I can't tell if more people want me to continue this. Read and Review because otherwise I'm just going to sit here like an idiot and not make anything while you all complain about it!

"Ah distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December and each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor."
