Starry Eyes .06Tommy quickly pulled up his pants and ran out after Nikki. "Dude, what the FUCK was that!?" Nikki stopped, twirling the men's room key around his finger. "You liked it, didn't you?" He smirked. God dammit, he had that cocky smile on his face again. He wasn't being serious. That whole thing was just to play with the drummer; he meant not a word that came out of his mouth that whole time.
"Do you really love me Nikki?" Tommy frowned, feeling slightly offended, even though the bassist hadn't said anything offensive. "I do," Nikki ruffled Tommy's hair and planted a soft kiss on his lips. Then he started walking away from the gas station. He flung the key in the air as he was strutting down the road, cars beeping at him. The entire situation was overwhelming. Did Tommy really just fuck Nikki Sixx in the filthy bathroom of a 7-11? Tommy decided it would be best to just shrug it off, or at least wait until the next day. He needed some sleep.
Starry Eyes .05In the morning when Tommy awoke, Nikki was nowhere to be found. Tommy hadn't the slightest clue where he was, let alone that he had slept on the floor next to him. He went to go check with Vince, but found that the blonde wasn't in his room either. Tommy looked around for any signs of life and went to the fridge. When he looked up, he saw the clock and the time: 10:43.
"I'm late for school!" Tommy screeched and grabbed his backpack. He quickly biked to school and checked in during a passing period. When he got to his locker, Nikki was waiting for him. "Hey, way to wake up on time," he smirked. "Don't even you know, you could have woken me up!" Tommy growled. "Me-oww!" Nikki shouted. "Whoa, like I would wake you up " Nikki shook his head and proceeded off to his next class. Tommy rolled his eyes and shut his locker.
Nikki leaped up three stairs at a time to get to music. He loved music, but he also had a thing for the girl who sat next to him. He put
Starry Eyes .04At school Tommy strolled into his first class, English. He immediately noticed that Nikki was there. He was always late, no joke. There was not one day this year that he was not late to first hour. He got detentions every three days for being tardy and that's just for being tardy.
Tommy sat in his regular seat, two chairs in front of Nikki and three to the right of Vince. While he and Vince exchanged worried glances, they heard tapping being them. When Tommy turned around, the boy behind him (in between Tommy and Nikki) was wide-eyed and cringed.
Nikki was writing something on his back? Nikki's eyes drifted from his work on the kid's back to Tommy's face. "Turn around, you're bothering my studies," he muttered. Before he turned, Tommy saw the kid mouth the words 'help' to him. Tommy rolled his eyes and tried to focus on his vocabulary.
At lunch Vince caught up to Tommy. "Hey, you got any shit on Nikki yet? Is he still pissed?" the drummer shook his head and sat down by a tree
Starry Eyes .03And of course Nikki was in there, slumped on the ground, passed out with a needle next to him. "Oh god Nikki c'mon, kid I thought we weren't doing that crap " He grabbed his best friend and pulled him through the bathroom to outside of Vince's room. "Vince!" Tommy pounded on the singer's door. Vince opened the door after 7 knocks with a look of anger on his face wearing nothing but his boxers. "What the do you have a chick in there?" Tommy peered around the blonde, trying to see in. "Yeah, but not that you like girls anyway," he gave Tommy the evil eye and glanced down at Nikki. "What happened with your boyfriend?"
Tommy was about to say something sarcastic back to that but he chose not to because he was 10,000 percent sure that saving Nikki from whatever the hell he did to himself was way more important than burning Vince. "He shot something up in his arm, Vince. Get him some water or something, please. Our sink got clogged again," Tommy lifted Nikki up
Starry Eyes .02The next morning Tommy woke up with an extreme pain in his side. "Ah, fuck, what happened last night?" he stood up slowly. He turned around to Nikki, who was playing with his hair, crouched on the floor eating a bowl of cereal. The bassist slowly looked up at Tommy, who was still clutching his side. Nikki just shook his head, looking as though he was shivering? His glance was fixed on something. Something under the bed. "Nikki, what the hell happened?"
Obviously, he wouldn't be responding any time soon so Tommy made the decision to go over to him. He grabbed the bassist by the shoulders. After being shaken a few times, Nikki shifted his glance from the bed straight in to Tommy's eyes. He mumbled something, but Tommy couldn't decipher it. "Can " "What? Nikki, seriously, what the fuck?" Nikki simply shuffled out of Tommy's grip and just hugged him. "Make it go away Tommy, please," he whispered to the drummer's chest. "Are you scared of something? Or what? What's g
Starry Eyes .07Tommy raised his arm and cupped his hand around his eyes. The sun was bright. He rolled over on his side and just looked at Nikki, who had fallen asleep. The two had been lying in their backyard watching the clouds. Nikki had repeatedly told Tommy that he was tired and wanted to take a nap, but the drummer insisted on sitting outside with his best-somewhat-more-than-just-friends-friend.
Tommy hadn't seen Vince in awhile, since he'd gotten kicked out of class on Thursday and it was Saturday today. This was very strange, considering, well, they DID share a room and an apartment. Tommy shook his head. He didn't even want to know where the blonde had been or what he'd been doing or whom. He figured he might as well focus on how beautiful Nikki looked while he slept.
The bassist just lied there, peacefully snoozing in the afternoon sun. His eyes rested perfectly shut, his arms cuddled up to himself, his legs laying at a slight angle, his plaid button-up shirt just a few buttons s
