On The Bridge That
How did it get so bad?
I love you Brian. Those were my last words to him. Before he left this harsh world.
There were so many other things I needed to tell him, so many wishes I had of being with him. All of
it doesn't matter now, he is gone and there is bringing him back.
I look up to gaze upon the colourful church window. Brian always loved churches. He told me this
church was where he came when he was angry, upset; or just needed a quiet place to think.
I am taking no notice of the music, it's some old song that his mother has picked. I know Brian
would hate this. He told me that he wanted some heavy metal song to play, just to piss everyone off.
I smile to myself, remembering those times where we would go to the lake, and into a clearing which
no one else knew off, and just sit there for hours and talk. Not listen to music, mess around or
anything else; we just talked.
I turn my head back to the front. There is a small table with a white cloth on it. On top of that is
a red photo frame with a picture of Brian in it. I look at his smile, and feel tears run down my
face. Tears that I cant replace. Tears that I shouldn't even be crying. He shouldn't have died.
The song finishes and another one starts to play. I hear a noise from the back and turn my head to
see the huge wooden doors open. I feel more hot tears run down my nose, and drop onto my chin, then
onto clothes. I see the four men carry my love in a box up the aisle to the front. They placed him
down onto another table, one I cant bear to look at. Then the funeral begins.
I listen to the priest, telling us all how Brian had a good heart, and was a lovely boy. He doesn't
even know him. He doesn't mean anything he says. It was just a routine he has to say. I just want to
scream out to him, Brian wasn't lovely, he was perfect; and he was mine.
As the funeral goes on, I sit there; reminiscing of Brians last moments on this Earth.
I'm sitting in my car, driving to a place that Brian didn't know I knew about. He doesn't realise
that I know a lot of his secrets. I like to watch him from time to time.
I turn the corner and carry on my travels down a dirt road, I can hear the tyres spinning, and
losing control. I finally make it to my destination. An old bridge by the edge of the river. I am
certain he came here because of what he said to me before he left me alone.
"I cant carry on like this." I feel a chill go down my spine. I need to save him.
I get out my car and run as fast as I can to where Brian is. I can see him clearly even though the
sun is setting and it's raining heavily. He is standing on the wrong side of the bridge barrier,
looking down at the fast flowing water.
"Brian!" I call out. He flinches and turns around.
"I told you to leave me alone. Why don't you understand?"
"Please, just come away from there, we can go back home and talk."
"No. Talking is what got us into this mess."
"It's not a mess. If I love you, and you love me, then it's perfect."
"No it's not. It's not supposed to be like this. We're only friends!" He called out before turning
around. I'm getting really scared now. I walk up to the barrier and touch his hand. He drags his out
from under my touch.
"Leave me alone. I cant do this with you watching."
"Just listen to what I have to say, before you do anything. Please."
"Just listen damn it!" I shout. I sigh. I don't mean to shout at him. He gets me so worked up when
doesn't listen to me.
"Fine, say what you have to say, then go." He says coldly.
"When I first realised I had these feelings for you, I didn't know what to do. I couldn't look you
in the eye, in case you noticed something, and never talked to me again. Then gradually I came to
think that you had these feelings for me too. When we were wrestling by the lake a week ago, even
though it was friendly, I could feel a connection between us. And by the fact that you left quickly
and didn't speak to me for the rest of the night, I know you did too. As I got used to the idea of
loving you, it didn't feel so weird, it felt right. And now that I'm strong, I've figured out how
this world has gotten so cold, so heartless. It makes me just want to curl up in a ball, and never
talk to anyone again. It breaks through my soul. But I know, deep inside me, I can find that I can
be the one for you. I love you."
"I don't know anymore Jimmy. I wont be able to go back home after this. My parents will hate me.
Yeah ok, maybe it does feel right. But everyone else we know will think its wrong."
"Why, its not like we're related." I cant understand why he is getting these doubts. If two people
love each other. They should be together, forever. He starts to cry, and its not just a few tears,
he is full on sobbing. I climb over the barrier and stand next to him, I hug him and whisper in his
"Its okay, we can get through this."
"Maybe you can, but I cant. You don't understand, my parents will disown me."
"Look around you Bri. Seasons are changing, waves are crashing, and stars are falling. Think of it
as they are doing it all for us. Do you really want to leave this world behind? The days are growing
longer, and the nights are growing shorter, which means we can spend more time together at the lake,
just me and you. No one has to know. I can show I can be the one for you." I say as I lightly kiss
his neck. He pulls away and I look at him confused.
"It feels so right, but I feel so wrong. I cant do this with you Jimmy. I'm sorry." He turns away
from me, and puts his foot out into the air. I quickly grab his arm as I realise what he is
"Don't Bri. Please!" I beg him. It's my turn to cry.
"I will never let you fall. I cant let you go that easily. I need you in my life. I feel truly happy
around you. I'll stand up with you forever. You wont have to go through this alone, I'll be there
for you through it all. Even if it sends me to heaven. Bri, I will risk my life for you. You don't
understand how much I love you."
"Just go. Please." Is all he says.
"I cant. Cos you're my; you're my; my true love." I stammer through the tears
"You just don't realise Jimmy, I cant do this."
"But your my whole heart, please don't throw that away. Cos I'm here for you. Please don't walk away
from this. Please tell me you'll stay." I sob. Why did he have to be such a stubborn bastard? Why
couldn't he see that it would be ok. We could move once we leave school. We could get away from
"Jim..." He says pleadingly.
"Use me as you will, pull my strings just for a thrill. I'm here for you Brian. If you stay, I know
I'll be ok, even though my skies are turning grey."
"I don't want to use you. I just want to leave."
"Please Bri, just think about things."
"Eh?" I say in shock, is he finally coming around?
"Well I know you wont leave me alone, so I suppose I will have to think about things."
"Oh God, thank you." I say as I climb over the barrier. I walk towards my car but stop as I notice I
don't hear footsteps behind me. I turn around to see Brian standing and looking at me.
"I wont be able to take it Jim. All the looks people will give us, all the words they will spit at
us, all the eggs they will throw at us. And the look my mom will give me when I tell her. Which I
would. I couldn't keep it from her. And what about the guys? They would turn on us. You saw what
they did to that gay couple on the beach last year. Don't you think they'll do the same to us? Only
it'll be worse. Cos we will see them everyday. Soon it would get out, and we would have the whole
school after us. I'm not strong like you Jimmy. I wouldn't be able to take it." He explains. He then
turns around and before he jumps, I manage to say one last thing.
"I love you Brian."
"I love you too, don't forget that." He says quietly, but just loud enough for me to hear.
I run to the barrier but its too late. He's gone.
I watch as Brians mother walks up to the altar, and reads something. I couldn't tell her what
happened that night. Brian wouldn't want that. I told her when I got there, it was too late.
What happened on the bridge, I will keep a secret until I die.
This was just a spur of the moment thingy. I had nothing else to do, and i
was listening to Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and decided to write a fic with
all the lyrics in. So sorry if it sucks.
