Back at the studio,Geoff had a meeting after the show was over. He gathered all of his friends that stayed behind. While others left for their homes.
"Alright, is everybody here?" Geoff asked.
"All except for some of them." said Bridgette.
"Like who?"Geoff asked.
"Let's see,"she said,"Eva,Alejandro,Noah,Katie,Sadie,Sierra,Cody and Blainley."
"Why can't they help out instead of leave so fast." Geoff said.
"I'm sure that they've all got their reasons Geoff. Besides, you mustn't forget, they've got their own lives to live as well."Bridgette said.
He said "Well if they are our friends,they'd still help us find Trent."
"No,no wait we're here." shouted Sierra as she was heading back to the group."Cody and I talked it over and we're going to help too."
"Alrighty then,"said Geoff "that's better. Now where do we look first?"
"You mean to tell us that you have no idea where Trent is?" asked Duncan.
"Well duh-huh,"said Geoff,"we've barely got this show over with. What do you think Mr. smart guy?"
"You want to know what I think."said Duncan."I think that this is bullshit. I think that we're wasting our time looking for Trent."
"And just what are you saying Duncan?" said Courtney.
"I'm saying that maybe we should all go home and wait till tomorrow. I'm sure he's o.k., let's just leave..." Duncan said.
"You know what," Geoff said,"it's no wonder why you hated him so much!"
"Excuse me? What did you say?" asked Duncan.
"You heard me,the guy's got more heart than you'll ever have,jerk!" Geoff shouted.
"The dude's a total wus!" Duncan snapped.
"So,it's bad enough that you take his ex-girlfriend, break Courtney's heart and think nothing of it. But he could be dead right now and you don't give a damn about it? Boy,you're really something special, aren't you pal!!"Geoff yelled in his face.
"That's it!!" Duncan shouted,"I don't have to take this kinda crap from you! I'm out of here! And I'm taking Gwen home too."
"But Duncan,." Gwen said.
"Come on Gwen," Duncan told her,"you're too tired to help. And besides,I think that you should let me take you home so you can relax."
"But Duncan, I'm not that tired.!" said Gwen.
Still he grabbed her arm and said "Will you come on Gwen, I know what I'm doing."
As they left,Courtney shouted,"Fine then,leave. But we're not going to forget this!"
"Yeah" Geoff said,"you can leave, we don't need ya!"
"So Geoff,"asked Bridgette,"what do we do first."
"I don't know Bridge? But I believe that there was one fan who got personal with his question." said Geoff."Maybe he went ahead and moved to another country or may be he joined the military?"
"But what if he did the #1 most stupidest thing and killed himself?" asked Beth.
"Yeah,"asked D.J.,"he didn't look happy when someone asked that question to Gwen."
"Don't talk like that!" Bridgette said,"I'm sure he's o.k.! Isn't he Geoff?"
"There's only one way to find out. We'll have to split up into separate groups. Cody,Sierra,D.J> and LeShawnna, go to the nearest recruiting office and see if he checked in or not.Heather, you take Beth,Lindsey and Tyler to the nearest airport and see if he left to some other country. The rest of us will stay behind and see if we can get some information on him." he said.
"Alright Geoff." heather said but then she stopped and said "Hey, wait a minute. How are we supposed to get any information on Trent if we don't know for sure if he left or not?"
"Just go and give a description about him." Geoff said."I'm sure they 'll give you something."
Heather just rolled her eyes and said"(sigh) Whatever Geoff, whatever."
As they all left, Bridgette began to wonder about his ideas. So she turned to face him and said,"Geoff, are you sure that you know what you're doing?"
"No." he said.
"Then how are you going to get any information on Trent,eh." asked Bridgette.
"How am I supposed to know,I'm just winging it. Besides, I'm not Chris." Suddenly, a great idea struck his head."Hey,wait a minute. That's how we can get our information."
"How?" Asked Bridgette.
"Through Chris!" Geoffrey said with great enthusiasm.
Back at Trent's house, Trent and his dfather enter the kitchen. Trent sits at the tableand his father goes to the fridge.
"Trent," he said,"I don't know how to break this to you son. But we're out of ice cream."
"Oh great," trent said,"now what.?"
"Well, I could go to the store, if you weren't having such a nervous break down." Mr. Mercury said.
"Aq come on dad. I'll be alright!" Trent said."Well i don't know son. You did almost kill yourself, by the way."he said."And I promise I won't do that again." Trent said.
"O.K., I'm going to the store to get some ice cream. Promise me that you won't go doing anything stupid while I'm gone" said Mr. Mercury.
"Sheesh...O.K,O.K. dad,I promise that while you're gone, I won't do anything stupid or suicidal again. Cross my heart and pinky swear." said Trent.
With that his dad smiled, patted him on the back and said," That's my boy." And headed off to the store.
While his dad was gone, another car drove right by his house. This car had two familiar people in it. But it wasn't Geoff or Bridgette.
Duncan's P.O.V.: Well this has been one hell of a drive. Gwen barely even talked to me. I was lucky to get her address. Not to mention the location to where she lives. On top of that, the rest of the group had the nerve to talk trash to me like that. It's not that Geoff isn't my friend. It's just that I don't care about Trent or his affairs. To me, it's like I said, he's a total wus. And besides, I'm glad that Gwen is my girl not his. I can do to her whatever I want to, good or bad. And he cant do a thing about it. So in all and all, I might even get Courtney back, eventually. Look out ladies, Mr. Studdmuffins is in town.
So as they headed down the neighborhood that Gwen lived, he spotted a familiar looking motorcycle , parked outside of someone's house. While slowing down, he attempted to take a look at it.
"Hmm, I wonder who owns that?" Duncan thought out loud.
"Who owns what Duncan?" asked Gwen.
"Oh, never mind,"he said,"where's you're house at?""It's right over there, Duncan." she said.
As they pulled into her driveway, he said,"Alright Gwen, we're here babe." Naturally Gwen said,"O.K. just help me get my stuff out."
"What, no kiss?"Duncan asked. But didn't say anything to him. She was still upset at him for the way he acted in front of everyone. Including her T.D.S. Friends.
"Awe come on Gwen, what's wrong?"he asked.
"What's wrong,what's WRONG!? First, you act like a total jackass back at the studio building,in front of all my friends. Then, you bring me home thinking that I need a break, when I wasn't even too weak to help find Trent. I mean, jeez Duncan, what's your beef?"she asked, angrily.
"Alright, alright then Gwen, I'm sorry, Sheesh! I'm sorry that i didn't help out. And I'm sorry that I acted like3 such a jerk in front of everybody. I just thought that you needed to rest after the way he treated you today." he said as he escorted her to the door.
"Yeah, well you know I was willing to make ammends with him Duncan." she said sourly, as sge opened her front door top her house.
"Look Gwen,"he said,"you've got to forget about him. I'm your man, he's nothing. I love you Gwen, he doesn't. Besides, I'm sure he's alright being alone. You'll still have me Gwen, I'll always be there for you babe."
"Yeah, well jeez, thank you Duncan. (sigh)I guess your right." sighed Gwen. And with that, she leaned towards him and kissed him.
"Nice one Gwen." he said with a smile on his face.
"Good-bye Duncan." she said.
"Catch you later, babe." he said.
well I'm glad I took care of that situation. But I'm still curious about who that motorcycle belongs to. If I'm correct, I'll find Trent and I'll find out why he left everyone so suddenly. And why he left my Gwen out there crying. One things for sure, heads are definately going to roll.
While Trent was sitting on the lounge chair, he began to feel bitter again. He just couldn't help himself from thinking about Gwen. So he decided to play around with his guitar for a while. What he didn't notice was that someone was outside looking at his motorcycle and realizing it was his. as he continued to play his guitar, he heard a knock at his door. He knew it wasn't his father because he wasn't gone that long. When he went to see who it was, he went to the door and looked in the peephole. When he did, he was shocked to see who it was outside his door. It was Duncan and he didn't look at all happy.
Why man, of all my friends, it had to be him. I'd rather it would be Gwen or Courtney or Bridgette or Geoffrey. But it would have to be that jack hole.
Suddenly, Duncan started pounding on Trent's door."Alright Trent, I know you're in there! I spotted your motorcycle, open this door right now!!"he yelled."Come on Trent, open this door right now you big wimp!"
"Ok, that did it!" Trent thought, as he opened the door."Well, what do you want!?"he said.
"What do I want wimp, I want to know why you left the show so damn fast, and what did you do to Gwen!?"said Duncan.
"That's none of your damn business Duncan,"said Trent,"and I would like to keep it that way."
"Oh really, huh. you did something to Gwen and I want to know right now!" Duncan said, angrily.
"I didn't do a thing to her if it's any of your business, chump. Now please do me a favor; get lost d!@#$%&d!" Trent snapped.
"Or what?" Duncan remarked."You going to do something about it wus?"
"Oh, you'd better believe it dumbass!" he sneered. And with that he shoved him out his door. Naturally, Duncan shoved him back and a fight began. Duncan grabbed Trent in a headlock and tried to beat his face in but Trent was to strong for him to hold. So he balled up his fist and smacked him right in the face. When Trent hit the floor, Duncan took one look at him and said,"I knew it, total wus."
However, Trenton extended his leg and kicked him right in the kiwi's. When Duncan felt his foot to his groin, Trent got up. And with two hits, he knocked him out on his lawn. As he laid there on the ground, Trent grabbed him by the T-shirt and pants and carried him to his car. After that he smashed his head into his car door.
"Awww, I'm so sorry," he said sarcasticly," I forgot your door was closed. Here, allow me to open it for you."
And with that, he opens Duncan's car door for him. As Duncan crawls into his car, Trent kicks him in his rear into his car. Then he slams his car door behind Duncan.
"Now, I'm only going to tell you this for the last time." Trent snarled,"GET OFF MY PROPERTY BEFORE I REALLY GET ANGRY!!!"
And with that he went back into his house. As Duncan began to recover, he took one last look at Trent's house to see him coming back outside, with a baseball bat. He didn't know for sure until he saw Trent coming towards his car.
"Yikes." He shouted as he started to struggle with his keys. While he finally got the engine started, Trenton walked up to the back of Duncan's car.
"You wouldn't dare." he said as his car engine roared. But even though, he did manage to move his car a little, Trent still smashed his car's rear lights. Duncan stopped his car and shouted,"You're going to pay for that,asshole!!"
But then he shrieked and pulled out as fast as he could, because Trent had thrown his bat at Duncan and missed.By the time Trent went to go get his bat, Duncan was long gone. Over at Gwen's house she could hear all the comotion going on out there. but she couldn't see what was going on from her room.
W.T.F. is going on out there. All I hear is yelling and screaming going on. I hope Duncan doesn't start any trouble out there. Not that I worry about him anymore, it's just the fact that I'm starting to see a part of him I don't like.Something has got to be done about his attitude. Unfortunately for me, I don't even think I can change his wicked ways. Heck with it, I'm not Courtney am I? Of course not, I'm me and no one else.
