High Tide
Chapter 6


[Tyler’s POV]

My alarm started screaming at me at 7:00 am. I rolled over to turn it off. When I tried to roll back, I felt something around my waist. I turned my head and saw Kenneth. I smiled, but then got a little worried. I lifted the covers to see if I still had clothes on. I did. I let out a sigh of relief. I moved a little closer to him and gave him a kiss.

I got out of the bed and went and changed clothes. I went out to the kitchen to make a pot of coffee. I went back to the room to wake my sleeping beauty up. I turned on the light, and found that Kenneth was all ready awake.

“Good morning.” He said.

“Morning. Did you sleep alright?”

“Kind of, you were having a nightmare all night. You were moving around a lot. I tried to wake you up, but I couldn’t. I decided to try and hold you and that worked. It calmed you down.”

“Oh, I’m sorry.”

“Don’t apologize. Do you remember what the dream was about?”

“Yeah, it’s the same thing every night.”

“Do you mind if I ask what it was?”

“Not at all. I don’t have enough time right now though. I have to get to school. I will tell you when I get home.”


“I made some coffee if you want some.”

“Sure, thanks.”

He got out of bed and we went out to the kitchen. My phone rang as we were drinking our coffee. I looked at the caller ID. It was Brent’s Mom.

“I need to answer this.”


“Hello.” I said as I put the phone to my ear.

“Good morning Tyler. Sorry for calling so early. Can you come outside? I need to talk to you.”

“Oookkk….. Give me a few minutes.”


I hung up the phone and looked at Ken with a confused look on my face.

“What’s up?”

“My ex’s mom is outside. She needs to talk to me.”

“That’s weird.”

“Yeah…… Ok, so I have to go. You can stay if you would like. If you leave can you lock the door?”

“Yeah. I will see you when you get home.”

I walked up to him and gave him a kiss.


I grabbed my coat and keys and went outside. I looked around for Lorrie’s car, but I didn’t see it. Just as I was pulling out my phone to call her, I heard her calling my name. I turned around and saw her. I walked up to her. The car she standing next to was not hers and it wasn’t Brent’s, unless they just bought it.

“What did you need to talk to me about?”

“Get in.”

I got in the car and we drove away.

“My boyfriend knows where I am.” I said trying to be funny.

“I’m not kid knapping you.” She said laughing.

“Then where are we going?”

“I have to go get my car.”


“This is yours.”


“Do you remember when you went and got your drivers license?”


“Well when you got it, Brent and I went car shopping. We picked this one out for you. It was in the shop getting looked and fixed up. Brent wanted it to have an all new stereo system in it. The reason it took so long was because there was a lot more wrong with the car. They called me last night and told me that the car was ready to be picked up.”

“I don’t know what to say. You have and are doing so much for me. Thank you so much.”

“Like I told you before, you are like a son to me. And you always will be.”

I started to cry. Since my mom died, I haven’t felt complete. Up until now I was looking for someone to fill the motherly role. I know that Lorrie had said that before, but it never sunk in, now it has.

“Can I ask you something?”


“Would you mind if I call you mom. I know this a bad thing to say, but you have done more for me than my real mom has. I know she took most of the beatings from my Dad so he wouldn’t hurt me, but you are showing me more and doing more as a mother.”

“You can call me that, along as you no longer think that. You mother loved you with all her heart. She might not have been able to show it as much as she would have liked to, but that love was there. I will be your mom now, but I won’t take that mantle form your mom. I’m not a replacement; I’m just stepping in form someone that can’t be here.”

“Ok it’s a deal. Thank you again.”

“Well, we are at my car. Have a good day.”

We both got out of the car. I walked over to her and gave her a big hug. She got in her car and I got in mine. I drove to school with tears of joy and a smile on my face.


[Brent’s POV]


I walked into the school and went straight to the cafeteria to look for Collin. He wasn’t at his normal table. I saw Tyler sitting by himself. I thought for a second and decided that today was going to be the day that we talked things out.

I walked over and sat down.

“Hi.” I said.

“Oh, umm, hi.”

“Can we talk?”


“Ok, first thing, I want to say that I’m sorry for how things turned out. I can’t really say how sorry I am in words. I never wanted to hurt you. That was the last thing that I wanted to do. I didn’t mean for this to happen. It’s not like I woke up and said to myself “I’m going to break Tyler’s heart today.” I would never do that.

“I don’t know why, but when I saw Collin, something clicked. Like people say, you can’t change who you like. Now, that’s not saying that I lost my feelings for you. I still have feelings for you. Hell, I still love you.”

I stopped for a second. I wanted to give him the chance to say something. When he didn’t I started talking again.

“You and I been through a lot together, more than most people in a relationship in high school ever should. I don’t know if you could feel it or not, but I started getting this feeling that we were drifting apart. Yeah, it sounds cliché, but that is how it felt. I’ve noticed after Halloween, before everyone found out. We were happy then. Once my asshole half brother told everyone, we weren’t the same. Maybe it was the secrecy that we liked, or I liked, I don’t know. I just know that we were not connected in that same way. “

“Yeah, I was feeling it to. I had been thinking that the relationship was coming to an end. I was trying to figure out a time to talk to you about it. Then that incident at the mall happened. I didn’t want it to end the way it did. I wanted to remain friends, but I couldn’t after that. I was to badly hurt. Then you just pissed me off when you kept trying to talk to me.

“I tried to get Peter to find me an apartment in Bellevue or Omaha, just so I could get out of here. There is too much to handle in a small town. Then the added stress from us breaking up, just about pushed me over the edge. I’m tired of all the stares.  At first it was because I was gay. Now the stares are because we are no longer together. I hear people talking behind my back. They say that I should never have been with you, that you were too good for me. I hear others saying that I’m a pathetic little fag. They say I should crawl in a hole and die. Those remarks made me feel even worse about breaking up with you. Until I moved into that apartment, I had been thinking about ending everything. That way people don’t have to worry about me.”

My face turned red. What Tyler just said made me extremely angry.

“How could you even think of doing that? There are so many people that love and care about you. I’m one of them. We may not be dating anymore, but that doesn’t mean I stopped caring about you.”

“Brent, calm down. I said “until”. I don’t think that way anymore. That’s how I was feeling.”

“Ok, but promise me that if you do, that you will call me. Collin might get mad, but that I can deal with. You doing something to hurt yourself, I won’t be able to deal with that.”

“Speaking of Collin, where is he? I haven’t seen him yet.”

“I’m not sure; he hasn’t sent me a text. He might have slept in.”

“Well, I guess we better get to class. The bell ran like 20 minutes ago.”


We walked our separate ways. I’m glad that we are going to try and work on a friendship. I’m not really sure if Collin is going to like that through. I will see if we can do a double date.


Ok everyone, I hope that you enjoyed the chapter.
