Fear for Rejection
Title: Fear for Rejection (Stand alone)
Disclaimer: I, here-by, do not own Peter Lewis Kingston Wentz III or Patrick Stump. I do
however own the imagination and the thought of this stories plot. Whether this has happened or not,
none of us besides Pete and Patrick will know, and I think as fans we should all respect that.
Dedications: My pen and paper who keep me sane during the nights I can not possible sleep,
and the talented music and lyrics of the one and only Fall Out Boy.
Notes: Pete and Patrick as you should be able to tell are both still in High School, there is
no age gap between them in this plot. Please read and review.
“Just shut up and close your eyes,” Pete's voice rang out.
It was a rather beautiful Saturday night in down-town Chicago. The warm summer weather placing a
humid yet comfortable blanket in the air and the smell of freshly cut grass and sweet smelling
flowers in the breeze. Most families had resorted to either their backyards or front porches for
supper and to spend sometime with their loved ones.
Peter Kingston Lewis Wentz the Third however had other plans. He was about to give his best friend
Patrick Stump a never-forgetting surprise.
Pete and Patrick had been friends for quite a while. They were in every class at school together.
Even though Pete had a love for literature as Patrick had a love for underground music. Pete craved
for fame where Patrick craved for the skills of simply playing the guitar. They were both each
others worst enemy, yet something held them together. They were inseparable since the day they met.
Patrick was a shy boy with nothing much to say. He had an opinion of a politician but was always
scared to voice it. Pete was a loud boisterous boy. He had every quality of a leader and definitely
put those qualities to use. Pete however did have his small faults, always visiting the school
counselor once a week.
What brought them together was the fear of rejection.
Tonight they were supposed to be spending their time at Pete's house. As usual he got bored and
yearned for a little adventure. Not telling Patrick where they were going both 16 year old boys head
of on foot. Since Pete was a high school soccer player he was more fit then Patrick causing Patrick
to be a few steps behind Pete. They walked in silence letting the heat form an un-spoken comfort
When they finally got to the source of Pete's adventure Patrick was scared. In front of him was a
five storey building and the only way up was to climb. Patrick was never fond of heights. He shot
Pete a terrified look. Pete returned it with a soft comforting smile then turned his back and
started to proceed up the stairs on the side of the worn out, run down, apartment building. The
stairs were simple metal ladders with not much life in them. Scared to be alone Patrick carefully
started to climb up, ignoring the anxiety attack waiting to happen. Just as he was two steps away
from reaching the top of the landscape Pete stopped him.
“Just shut up and close your eyes,” He says reaching for Patrick's hand.
Doing everything in his power not to scream Patrick tried to calm down at Pete's touch, feeling his
heart beat a hundred miles per hour. Finally realizing he's on top of the building and Pete had
stopped guiding him Patrick asked to open his eyes.
“Not yet, I haven't even started the surprise,” Pete laughs.
Patrick stands there starting to get worried. What is Pete doing? No sooner had he asked himself the
question he could feel Pete's body heat near him. He was slowly getting closer to Patrick's face.
With his eyes closed Patrick felt Pete's lips press against his own. Pete's lips were so soft making
Patrick weak at the knees.
“You can open your eyes now,” Pete quietly whispered those words as if they were said
too loudly the earth might shatter into a million pieces.
Patrick opened his eyes slowly only to be met with a breath-taking view of the whole of Chicago. All
the lights were lit up, symbolizing candles. Patrick had never seen anything as amazing. Pete
ushered Patrick to sit down next to him, as they gazed at the sites. Silence quickly fell.
“It's so beautiful,” Patrick finally speaks.
“Just like someone I know,” Pete smiled.
“Why me?” Patrick asked after a bit of silence.
“You are the only person who is keeping me away from the beautiful call of death,” Pete
“But I am just a simple boy with nothing to offer you,” Patrick admits.
“Yet the simplest are the most interesting. You make my pain go away with a simple smile, you
make my demons disappear with simple words, and you make my world worth living with your simple
presents. You simply make me.” Pete says scooting closer to Patrick.
“Do you love me?” Patrick asks innocently letting a tear roll down his face.
“There is no one else who belongs in my heart but you,” Pete replies moving his face to
“Feel this?' Patrick asked moving Pete's hand to his heart. `You are the only person who can
make my heart beat slower and faster at the same time.”
Pete grabs Patrick's head and both their lips collide. Tears run freely as they stay positioned in
their momentary heaven.
Was this one step closer to them over-coming their fear of rejection?
“Never let me go,” Patrick demands through sobs.
“I promise I never will.” Pete replies kissing Patrick's tears away.
