settling in the dust

Benny had to admit, Casey had really helped him through this drama of his, with Spencer and Ka-Rad. Casey, was true friend, he'd decided. Unlike someone he knew. Spencer.

Naturally, it was disgusting to even face Spencer now. Of course, Benny gave him the silent treatment. He had too. He just couldn't find his voice around Spencer. Thank God, all he had to do was beat the drums. He definitely couldn't have sang.

Now, it was just he and Casey. And he guessed Cory. A part of him so wanted Casey to kick Spencer out of the band, but he wouldn't ask it. He just couldn't, It would be wrong. Of course, these days, there was Cory to worry about. This Lucy thing.

"You know you'll get back with her." Benny finally told him while they were waiting for Casey. They needed some time to discuss things about the band. He really wasn't waiting for Spencer.

"How can you say that?" Cory gave him a bitter grin. "Have you listened to yourself, lately?" Cory gave him a glare. "You can't even say two words to a guy who's been your best friend since God knows when, all be cause of this, this Ka-Rad dude. Who has a name like that, and why would they? I hope his real name sucks."

Benny laughed softly, shaking his head. "You know you love her. Nothing should stop you, you know. If you really feel the way about Lucy, that I think you do, you'll win her back."

"God, you're just a fucking romantic, aren't you?" Cory swelled a frown as he went back to the steel guitar to work on some chords.

Benny's smile grew faint. He'd never even had a boyfriend. Ka-Rad had been the first dude he'd ever kissed and he'd done so, so shameless. It made him nausea thinking about it now.

Just then a short fat girl waltzed in as if she owned Cory's basement. The music stopped. Cory just stared at her.

"Who are you?" Cory asked.

"Uh," suddenly, Benny saw her nervous look. "Um, Casey said I could come over. Is he here?"

"Not yet." Cory shrugged.

She just nodded as she sat down on the bottom steps of the basement. A sly smile came to Benny then. He almost cracked up. So this was who Casey had the best sex with? Benny couldn't quite shake the thought. Damn, Casey was an idiot, after all. Benny knew for sure now.
