    Okay so heres a shortish story that I've had in my head for a long time and finally wrote. But then I decided why not post it here because I have nothing else to do with it.
    It will probably seem sad at first but I promise it'll get better.
    So don't kill me right away. Anyways here's the prologue and I'll try to get chapter one up tomorrow sometime.

    Prologue: two months.
    Dr. Teeth called the band to a crashing halt.
    "Let's take five everyone." He said.
    Zoot left to go have a nap and Dr. Teeth and Animal went to go find food.
    Janice set down her guitar and walked over to Floyd who had taken a seat on the edge of the stage.
    "Hey babe." He said pulling her down beside him.
    She kissed his cheek and took his hand twining their fingers together.
    Floyd stared at the ground in a daze. Janice turned his face towards her catching a glimmer of almost sadness before he blinked and it was gone.
    "Is everything like okay honey?" Janice asked unable to forget what she'd saw.
    "Ya it's all good babe." Floyd replied returning to his usual hip self.
    Janice smiled and kissed him softly before resting her head on his shoulder.
    She could trust that it was all alright, that Floyd was telling the truth. Right?

    Janice opened her eyes from the dream that left her shaken each time.
    Why hadn't she seen it?
    The pain in his eyes the missing piece. She never knew he was broken.
    She sat up and brushed the hair from her face. It was 2:45 according to her alarm clock.
    With a sigh Janice pulled herself out of bed as of two hours and forty five minutes ago it had been two months.
    It had been two months since she last saw Floyd. He'd left saying he needed a break, from the show and band. Even her.
    Janice felt her heart break more as she padded over to the calendar on the wall. The floor was freezing on her bare feet but Janice ignored it and crossed a big red x over today's date.
    She looked around her room it was decorated with old posters of bands and movies some as old as the seventies and eighties when everything was perfect and Floyd was still here.
    She could hear the rain hitting the window mirroring her mood perfectly. Janice walked back to her bed and laid down and for the millionth time since Floyd had left she cried herself to sleep.

    Sorry it's short but chapter one is coming soon.

    :eek: Mucho shocking! I love this so far! This chapter reminded me a bit of the song "Goodbye My Lover" by James Blunt

    Chapter 1: gone.
    In the first few days after Floyd had left Janice was inconsolable and unreachable. She spent days in her room crying and dreading the next few weeks while Floyd was gone.
    She was so upset not even the remaining band members and her best friends could help her.

    Today Janice got up got dressed and walked downstairs for breakfast.
    The first few weeks had been hard and when the news got hold of the story it got harder with reporters constantly outside and following her wherever she went. Even being in the house was hard. She found herself walking downstairs only to have everyone watching her.
    Even Miss Piggy felt lonely because she had no one to karate chop.
    Dr. Teeth gave her a welcoming grin as she got some cereal and sat down across from him.
    "You alright for practice today?" He asked. Ever since Floyd left he'd lost his usual crazy but cool attitude and was much calmer and somber.
    "Fer sure" Janice said with little enthusiasm.
    "Two months" She sighed.
    Dr. Teeth nodded softly and rested a hand on her arm.
    "Jan I could tell you it'll be alright and that he'd be back soon but…he hasn't called and he never told us where he was going." Dr. Teeth told her.
    Janice nodded and looked down.
    "But I know he will come back." Dr. Teeth added.
    "You rully think so?" Janice asked.
    "That I know so." He replied.
    And for a minute they both cheered up a little.

    It was at band practice later on did Janice feel her worst.
    Clifford had subbed in for Floyd for the past two months. In Janice's opinion he was great but he wasn't Floyd and without Floyd the band didn't feel the same. Even the show audiences knew it.
    The first time the band had played without Floyd all they got was a forced applause and a bunch of confused looks.
    Dr. Teeth was about to start the next song when Animal gave a shout of boredom and frustration and bit a cymbal clean in two.
    "C'mon Animal one more song?" Dr. Teeth asked.
    "NO SING NO SING!" Animal yelled pounding on his drums wildly.
    "Here lemme walk him." Clifford said.
    "Here" Dr. Teeth tossed him the chain.
    Clifford attached Animal and hurried off.
    Janice sat on the edge of the stage and held her head in her hands. She couldn't help but feel as though Floyd was truly gone.

    Chapter 2: Gig
    Minus Floyd the band didn't do to well. Clifford helped out but there were times when he couldn't be there.
    The band finally found a good gig it was an actual concert. Janice had actually been happy when Dr. Teeth had told the band but then the fact that Floyd wouldn't be there settled on her and she felt sad again.
    For over a month the band had been preparing for the concert and they weren't about to let anything ruin it for them.
    Today Janice got ready and tried to make herself as excited as possible but then she thought of the gig which made her think of the band which lead to thinking of Floyd and suddenly she fell to her knees and cried all over again.
    She couldn't help herself as she cried on the floor her lithe frame quaking with tears. She missed him so much she missed his voice and him always being with her and especially now she missed his arms her comforting her. But if he hadn't of left she wouldn't need comforting.
    Footsteps echoed down the hall and there was a knock on her door. Janice dragged herself to her feet and reluctantly opened the door.
    "Hey Jan, Dr. Teeth wants us downstairs for practice." Clifford said.
    "Oh okay" Janice said still wiping tears from her eyes.
    "Are you okay?" Clifford asked.
    "Ya I'm fine." Janice replied. Clifford nodded and walked back down the hall.
    Janice got her guitar and followed downstairs.
    The rest of the band was waiting downstairs.
    "Ready to go?" Dr. Teeth asked.
    "Fer surely" Janice said walking over.

    Chapter 3: the return of comfort
    Janice was happy to escape the craziness of the theatre.
    Is this what Floyd felt like?
    Is this why he left?
    Janice thought to herself. If this was the reason it made no sense Floyd would've told her right.
    Clifford opened the door after her.
    "Hey Jan are you okay?" He asked sounding genuinely concerned for the lithe guitarist.
    "Um totally I just needed a little break is all." Janice replied.
    "It's not just that is it? It's him right?" Clifford asked.
    Janice sighed Clifford had a point once again Janice had let her mind wander to Floyd and it broke her heart.
    "I guess like…ya. It's hard Clifford like I rully have no idea what to do," Her voice cracked and she knew if she didn't stop talking she'd collapse on the ground in tears. "I miss him so much. He totally left like how can I deal with it?" She said.
    "No one expects you to Jan. we're all here for you. What Floyd did in my opinion was careless and cruel. But that's no reason not to try, to be happy again" Clifford told her.
    Janice nodded and leaned against the wall. "I'm just rully confused right now." She muttered her eyes boring into the ground.
    "I know and the band especially Teeth are trying to help you. But what can we do Jan we can't bring him back." Clifford said.
    "I'm sorry, I'll try you totally have a point I'll try to be happy." Janice said forcing a smile to prove her point.
    Clifford hugged her "but if you ever need help just ask."
    "Thank you." Janice whispered stepping back and giving him a grateful smile.

    "Its okay this is the best way to get over him." Miss Piggy told Janice who nodded.
    "Now walk in there and don't think of Floyd." Miss Piggy said stepping up behind Janice.
    Janice turned and looked at the sports store in front of her. It was packed with guys. Guys that would help her get over Floyd.
    "Let's go." Miss Piggy said leading the way inside.

    "That was a disaster!" Janice cried holding the ice pack to her head.
    "Moi told you to stop staring at the ground and pay attention to the guy in front of you but you mumbled something about Floyd backed up and walked straight into a shelf of bowling balls.
    "I was there you rully don't need to repeat it." Janice said.
    "Hmm well if that didn't work I don't know what will" Miss Piggy said.
    "Fer sure I don't have a clue." Janice replied.
    Miss Piggy suddenly smiled and looked at Janice.
    "What?" Janice asked.
    "We're going you the mall." Miss Piggy replied.

    -is still wondering why Floyd left- This chapter is great, but....WHY FLOYD LEAVE? :grr: I'm really sorry, but that's just the one thing that's bugging me about this whole story. :o

    Other than that, it's really good. And at least Janice is trying to get her mind off of Floyd in the latest chapter.

    Chapter 4: Home
    Janice walked in through the front doors of the mall. It had been a week since the sports fiasco and since then Miss Piggy had worked exceptionally hard trying to help Janice get over Floyd.
    "Alright here you are going to look but not buy we're here with nothing and we'll leave with nothing okay?" Miss Piggy asked.
    "Fer sure" Janice replied.
    Miss Piggy lead the way over to where a big group of guys were standing.
    "Alright let's go."

    Janice awoke in a blur.
    "You're a walking disaster" Miss Piggy told her.
    Janice sat up and slowly remembered. She had walked into the group and started a good conversation with this one guy then on her way to leave an escalator got in the way and it all literally went downhill.
    "I'm done Piggy I rully can't do it." Janice said.
    "Yes you can" Miss Piggy replied.
    Janice closed her eyes and sighed she knew if she tried hard enough she could forget Floyd but it was getting over him that was the hard part.
    "While you were out the band came looking for you they're at the theatre." Miss Piggy said.
    Janice jumped up and walked to the door "Thanks Piggy."
    She said before disappearing.

    "Jan you came!" Dr. Teeth said grinning at her.
    "Fer sure." Janice replied swinging her guitar around.

    The band finished a successful practice and Janice headed outside to get a drink from a cafe
    "hey Jan mind off I tag along?" Clifford asked.
    "Come on" Janice replied waving him over.
    They walked side by side down the sidewalk.
    "Jan!" Someone called from behind them.
    Janice spun around and froze. Floyd was standing behind them by the theatre.
    "Floyd you came back!" Janice yelled and sprinted towards him.
    He caught her in a suffocating hug.
    "hey baby" He said. Janice hugged him tighter he was really there.
    Then it all crashed down on her at once. "where have you like been?" She asked.
    "I'll explain later let's go see the band." Floyd took her hand.
    "Come on Clifford" Janice said.
    "I'm gonna head home see ya later." Clifford said.
    Janice stopped Floyd outside the doors "I missed you" She told him.
    Floyd kissed her cheek "I missed you too." He replied.
    "Floyd!" Dr. Teeth exclaimed spotting them from the stage.
    In a second the band was together again.
    "FLOYD FLOYD FLOYD FLOYD FLOYD!" Animal yelled jumping up and down so hard the floor vibrated.
    "Hey Animal" Floyd said.
    Janice smiled and slipped her arms around his waist.
    "we should head back." Janice said leading the way to the doors.

    "So where were you?" Janice asked.
    Floyd sighed and sifted on her bed so he was facing her.
    "This whole time I've been...

    Chapter 5: over
    I've been in Chicago." Floyd said.
    Janice gave him a confused look "Why were you in Chicago?" She asked
    "I was taking a break Jan it wasn't you at all. I would've taken you with me but you never would've come." He said.
    Janice sighed and wrapped and arm around his neck "I would've if I'd like known you'd be gone for two months. You left me a letter Floyd you never even told me yourself." She said.
    "I know and I'm sorry Jan." Floyd told her.
    Janice sighed and stood up.
    "You're mad aren't you?" Floyd asked her.
    "Floyd you left for two months of I usually don't like get mad but rully Floyd I don't know how to like forgive you." She told him.
    "I know Jan and that's why I came back I missed you so much." He told her.
    "Then why did you leave at all?" Janice asked.
    She left before he could reply.

    "I've really messed up man" Floyd said looking up at Dr. Teeth who didn't deny it and nodded.
    "Floyd you and I know Janice doesn't hate you. She's mad at you but c'mon man it's Janice she's so laid back and nothing gets to her." Dr. Teeth said.
    "Nothing except me leaving." Floyd muttered.
    "Floyd lemme lay something on ya here. I never in all these years ever saw Janice as upset as she's been in the last two months.
    Floyd I haven't seen her smile in that feels like forever. You broke her heart and there's nothing harder to fix than a girls broken heart and there's nothing harder to regain than her trust." Dr. Teeth said.
    "But what can I do?" Floyd asked almost desperate.
    "Floyd talk to her let her know you still love her." Dr. Teeth said.
    Floyd sighed and buried his face in his hands. "But what if she doesn't love me?" He asked
    "Floyd c'mon man you're acting like you're afraid you're never afraid dude get over it and go find her."
    "You're right man thanks" Floyd said.

    Janice sat in her room she was mad at Floyd it hadn't hit her until a while ago when he came back but as soon as he did she realized just how mad she was.
    "Jan?" He said pushing open the door and stepping inside.
    "Hey" she said softly not looking up.
    Floyd walked over and slipped an arm around her waist.
    "Are you okay?" He asked knowing already that she wasn't.
    "I'm rully mad at you floyd like fer sure you left me." She told him.
    "Jan what can I do to make everything better?" Floyd asked.
    "Nothing there's like nothing you can do." Janice told him.
    Floyd sighed "what do you mean?" He asked dreading her answer.
    "I mean I rully think we need a break" Janice told him.
    "Janice please I'm sorry I never meant to hurt you." Floyd said reaching for her hand.
    Janice stood and looked at him. "It's too late for that" she said before leaving.

    Now you may kill me but before you do let me say that this will get better so kill me with that in mind.

    Chapter 6: Complications,
    Janice ran down the hall, she told herself she wouldn’t cry. That she’d cried enough in the past but as she walked farther from the room her heart broke more and she couldn’t bring herself to leave because after two months of him being gone she’d broke up with him.
    She forced herself to keep walking and finally she made it outside to where she was happier and she didn’t have to worry.

    Floyd stood up and walked into the hall. He wanted to punch a hole straight through the wall but he stopped himself and continued to walk. Dr.Teeth met him downstairs, “What happened?” He asked.
    “We’re done.” Floyd said trying desperately to stay calm. Dr.Teeth sighed and looked at his friend. “Are you okay man?” He asked.
    Floyd shrugged and pushed past the band leader and outside.

    Clifford walked up to Dr.Teeth looking perplexed. “So is Floyd taking my place in the concert or am I keeping it?” He asked.
    “I’d rather you keep pit for this gig, you know the songs and besides I don’t think Floyd’s in the mood to play.” Dr.Teeth replied.
    Later that afternoon the band met up at the theatre. “So Floyd’s sitting this one out,” Dr.Teeth explained.
    “What?” Floyd exclaimed getting up and glaring at Teeth.
    “Personally I think Clifford should like replace Floyd permanently.” Janice commented quietly earning a glare from Floyd.
    “Look guys I would love to play but if Floyd wants to I don’t have to.” Clifford offered.
    “But Clifford you know the part and we don’t have the time for Floyd to catch up.” Zoot said.
    “Are you kidding me? I’ve learned full songs in fifteen minutes then performed them, for years I can learn every single one of these songs two days tops.” Floyd said.
    Janice sat on one of the speakers and tuned her guitar while everyone argued. Usually when the band fought she’d choose Floyd’s side and vice versa but it was different now so she just ignored them altogether.
    “Jan, do you have the list of songs?” Dr.Teeth asked.
    “Fer sure,” Janice said. She retrieved the list and padded over to Teeth handing the sheet to him.
    “Teeth, what part of these songs is hard to you? There are five of them and I can do them all easily.” Floyd said.
    “Look Floyd it’s just that there’s more to it then the songs there’s the singing and dancing and we already have it sorted out.” Zoot explained.
    Floyd sighed and spared a split second glance at Janice before returning to the sheet.
    Janice rolled her eyes and set down her guitar.
    “Floyd like maybe you should just let Clifford do it, you seemed to enjoy being alone before why don’t you continue it?” She said.
    Floyd stared at her; it seemed like forever before he answered her. “Fine, you know what? Clifford can replace me permanently cause I’m done.” He grabbed his bass and stormed out the door.

    Janice didn’t see Floyd for the rest of the night. They had never really fought let alone broke up Janice couldn’t remember ever being that mad at him. She went down the hall and to the one place that made her happy; the rooftop was calming and relaxing and helped her think.
    Tonight the air was warm and there was a slight breeze that tousled her hair blowing it into her eyes.
    “Jan?” Janice turned around to see Floyd behind her.
    “Like what do you want?” she asked.
    “Can we talk?” He asked.
    Janice nodded; Floyd sat beside her and sighed. “Are you still mad at me?” He asked.
    “I rully don’t like know Floyd I was at first like fer sure mad at you but now, I guess I’m sorta mad still.” Janice explained.
    Floyd nodded and looked at the stars above them, “Janice I’m sorry that I left. I should’ve taken you with me and I regret it so much.” He told her.
    Janice sighed and looked at him, “Floyd I know you’re sorry but like I’m just like not ready to forgive you yet.” She told him,
    Floyd sighed and looked at her. “So I guess we’re not getting back together?” He asked.
    Janice shook her head, “I guess not.” She said before getting up and heading towards the window, Floyd couldn’t tell but he was pretty sure she was crying.

    Chapter 7: The argument
    Janice walked back to the boarding house alone after practice the next day.
    She was positive that she made the right choice but there was a miniature part of her that told her she hadn’t that part of her was her heart.
    The clouds dominated the sky and threatened to poor rain any moment Janice sighed and kept up her steady pace bad weather was just what she needed to make this day worse.
    The house was quiet when she returned instead of paying attention to any weird conversation that was going on she headed upstairs for a nap.

    Floyd was lounging in one of the audience seats in the theatre. He’d watched the band practice and hadn’t paid attention to any of the songs they were playing he was entirely focused on Janice.
    Is this what Zoot felt like?
    He thought remembering the pair’s breakup after the first season. Janice had been heartbroken Floyd knew because he’d been there for her but he never really thought about how Zoot had taken the whole thing.
    Janice was great; she was cheerful and constantly laughing. Nothing ever bothered her and she never bothered anyone. Floyd couldn’t stand being without her. The last two months had almost killed him. She was the reason he came back and now they weren’t even together, but together or not Floyd had to at least have her around.
    She’d left after the practice not even casting him a glance as she walked past down the aisle she just slung her guitar on her back and walked towards the doors.
    Floyd sighed and stood up, the theatre was near empty and he was bored.
    By the time he got to the house it was starting to rain
    He headed up to his room and was about to open the door to his when Janice walked out of her’s she walked past him and straight to the window climbing up onto the roof.
    Floyd wanted to go after her but forced himself to walk into his room instead.

    Dr.Teeth called the entire band including Floyd to the theatre the next morning, Janice came over late and in a rush with her hair soaking wet.
    “Like sorry I’m late I got in the shower late and then remembered you told me to come here.” Janice said in a rush setting down her guitar.
    “Why didn’t you just have a shower later?” Floyd asked like it obvious.
    Janice rolled her eyes and tried not to get mad, “Like I rully don’t know. I’m not trying to sound mean but like why are you even here? Fer sure” She asked.
    “Because we need him here,” Dr.Teeth said.
    “I thought he quit?” Janice retorted.
    Floyd sighed and promptly ignored her.
    “Let’s not start fights my musical friends.” Dr.Teeth said,
    Floyd glared at him, “I’m not the one who is continuously late and constantly annoying.” He snarled.
    Janice rolled her eyes and crossed her arms across her chest. “Seeing as though you are like fer sure not in this why don’t you like leave Floyd?” She asked.
    Floyd turned his glare on her, “and she wonders why I left” He said.
    Janice gaped at him her heart constricting to tight that it affected her breathing. “Maybe you should have stayed away!” She said storming out the door; Floyd stared after her feeling terrible for what he’d just said.

    Later on he found her sitting against the wall in the hallway. She didn’t look up but he walked over to her anyways.
    “Like what do you want?” She asked.
    “I’m sorry” he told her, she looked up at him and her gaze softened slightly.
    “So am I” She replied surprising him. Floyd looked down at her not knowing what to say.
    Janice stood up and looked at him “I shouldn’t have gotten that mad at you.” She said.
    “No I shouldn’t have left,” he told her Janice smiled and hugged him.
