Astronaut Vlog: Friday, College Parties
“Dude!” Marty said excitedly. “You’re never going to believe this!”

 

Nina looked from her homework, and turned her head to where Marty had just entered through the door of Jazz Brew Coffee. “Never gonna believe what?”

 

Marty took a deep breath and said, “Okay, you know how Jason has an older brother that’s in college?”

 

Nina and I both nod.

 

“Well,” Marty continued, “Jason pulled a few strings and invited us to one of his brother’s parties tomorrow!”

 

Nina and I looked at each other wearily. I wasn’t sure how I felt about going to a college party. Heck, I didn’t even like going to the high school parties I sometimes went to because of Marty. I’d gone to one in middle school, and even that wasn’t too enjoyable.

 

“I don’t know, Marty,” I said. “These are college students. The party won’t be like the ones you’ve dragged me to.”

 

“So?” Marty challenged. “They’re only a few years older than we are.”

 

Nina sighed, “Look, we’ll go for a little bit to see what it’s like. If something starts to happen, then we’ll leave.”

 

I nodded that sounded like a good plan.

 

I knew something was going to happen at that party.

This is suspense. I feel bad for Marty. He's always going to parties and doing wild things... Is it because he's trying to find something that he's just not getting?

In a sense, yes. Marty sees that both Elliot and Nina have their things, and they stick with them, and they’re good at them. Marty’s good at math and all, but he kind of feels inferior to the math geniuses at school, so he started to gravitate more towards the “cool” kids (which he’s always held a fondness for).

 

marty brewer

 

I can’t wait to go to college. The party was epic, and no one treated me like the scum of the earth because I was younger. Everyone was cool. And the girls! They were smoking hot and were really cool with me. I didn’t have a girlfriend at the moment (Jessica didn’t take the breakup well) but I knew these girls were going to say they were too old for me. I wasn’t quite 18 yet.

 

Elliot and Nina didn’t seem to be having as good a time as I was. They were with me at first. I’m not sure where they went, though.

 

I was talking to one of the girls who was a math major, when Jason’s brother, Derek came in with a few cans. I thought it was soda when Jason first cracked one open and started drinking it, but once I got a better look at it, I realized that that wasn’t what it was at all.

 

It was what Vance always drank under the bleachers after school.

 

Beer.

 

“Squirt,” Derek told Jason, handing him another can. “Offer one to your little friend over there.”

 

I wasn’t sure what to say. On the one hand, my parents were always telling me about this stuff. On the other hand, though, I didn’t want these guys to think I was just another high school baby.

 

I guess one of them saw my hesitation, because he said, “Oh, that’s right. You’re still just a high school kid.” He was mocking me, I could tell. He looked at Jason, “I thought you told me your friend was cool.”

 

Jason didn’t say anything, he just shrugged.

 

Derek held a can out to me, “What do you say little guy?”

“This sucks,” Elliot said.

 

We’d managed to get out of the room where everyone was and we were now sitting in the hallway.

 

“They’re going to know we don’t belong here,” Elliot told me. “They’re going to know we’re only high school seniors.”

 

“Calm down,” I soothed. “Just try and act like we fit in. They can’t be that different from us.”

 

“I guess you’re right,” Elliot reluctantly agreed.

 

Eventually, Jason found us in the hall, carrying something. “There you guys are!” He said. “Do you guys want some?” Jason shoved a can at us.

 

I stared at the can. Beer.

 

Elliot immediately shook his head, “I don’t want that.”

 

I just stared at it, then back at Jason. Can. Jason. Can. Jason.

 

“Well?” Jason asked.

 

A few sips wouldn't hurt, right? I hesitantly took the can from Jason. Jason left, a satisfied smirk on his face. Elliot stared at me, open-mouthed.

 

"You aren't gonna drink that stuff, are you?" Elliot asked.

 

I shrugged, turning the can over in my hands, "I'm curious as to what it tastes like."

 

Before Elliot could protest any further, I cracked open the can, and took a big gulp. I coughed. It was really strong. It tasted gross. People liked this stuff?

 

"Yeah," I said, coughing. "I don't want this stuff."

 

Elliot shrugged, "I told you." His eyes widened, "Crap, Marty's inside where they're handing these out!"

 

I was sure Marty had better judgement than that, but then we heard Marty chanting some kind of war cry, and the two of us jumped up from the floor.

 

Marty was standing on top of the table, holding one of the cans in one hand and a karaoke microphone. “Allow me to preform my new hit song,” Marty said into the microphone.

 

I honestly wasn’t sure what he was about sing, but my curiosity was quickly answered when he let out a long burp into the microphone.

 

Elliot shut his eyes tightly. "Oh god," he muttered.

 

Marty now looked like was about to do some kind of trust fall off the table. Only, there wasn’t anyone ready to catch him. Elliot and I ran over there just in time to catch him.

 

Marty laughed and tried to get up from our arms but his legs gave out before he could stand all the way up, so Elliot and I continued to hold him up.

 

Elliot and I looked at each other, trying to figure out what to do.

 

Marty turned to me, then, to my surprise, gave me a big kiss right on my lips.

 

I recoiled, and resisted to urge to slap him.

 

Elliot glared at him and finally said, “We’re leaving.”

 

“You’re leaving!” Marty protested.

 

Elliot tried dragging him, and eventually Marty gave in. He had some trouble getting his jacket on, and Elliot had to help him with that.

 

“God, I hope my parents don’t catch wind of this,” Elliot muttered.

Astronaut Vlog: Sunday, Arguments
“What happened?” Marty asked, rubbing his eyes groggily. “Why am I in your room?”

 

It was morning now, and I was curled up on my beanbag, having let Marty sleep on the bed. I don’t think I actually dozed off until like, two hours ago. Marty kept waking up to go puke in the bathroom.

I’d tried to get Nina to stay too, in case I needed any help keeping an eye on Marty, but her mom told her that she’d rather Nina go home.

 

“We had to bring you home from the party last night,” I told him, covering myself with my blanket some more. “I called your parents and told them you were spending the night.”

 

Marty nodded slightly like her understood. “Why do I feel so groggy?”

 

I sat up, knowing there was no hope in going back to sleep. “Do you remember anything from last night?”

 

Marty thought about it, then said, “Yeah. I was having the time of my life, and you and Nina made me leave. You guys were probably jealous of how well I got along with those guys.”

 

I stared at him, “Jealous? Are you serious? You wanna know what happened last night, Marty?” I was angry now. “We were offered beer from Jason, and you decided that you’d try and prove to them how “cool” you are, so you took it. And guess what, you drank too much.”

 

Marty glared at me, “So what? Kids at school do it all the time!”

 

I glared back harder, “Oh, I don’t know, maybe the fact that you’re underage, and it’s ilegal!”

 

“I was right,” Marty shouted. “You are jealous!” And with that, he tried to get up from the bed and left my room, leaving me fuming.

No. Neither of them needs to lose a friend right now. Especially Marty, with Kimmy being sick and all... I guess he just snapped. Too much for one guy. You're a great author.

Mods please let this through

I was sitting in Elliot's backyard, picking at grass, and still feeling groggy.

 

I felt bad for yelling at him. I still wasn't thinking completely straight. I tried to recall what happened last night.

 

Jason's brother Derek was trying to get me to drink a can of beer, and I took it. But...I could swear I only drank one. What happened after that was kind of fuzzy.

 

Elliot's backdoor opened and he stepped out. "What are you still doing here?"

 

I looked up at him, "I was kinda dizzy when I got outside, so I decided to sit down for a bit."

 

"Oh." Was all he said. "Can I ask you something?" Elliot sat down on one of the chairs he had out here. "Why'd you take the can in the first place? I mean, Nina took it at first, but then she rejected it."

 

Nina took one? I guess she wasn't as pristine as I thought. I wondered if she'd told her mom about that one.

 

I shrugged, "I don't know, I just..." I trailed off.

 

"Marty, what's been up with you, lately?" Elliot asked.

 

"What do you mean?"

 

"What do you I mean? I don't know, maybe the fact that you're always hanging out with the 'cool' crowd at school that we all know just leads to trouble, you've got a new girlfriend every month, and you got drunk last night." He said. "This isn't the Marty I remember."

 

I recoiled. I knew exactly what he was talking about.

 

He and Nina had been kind of...preoccupied lately, what with their relationship moving forward. Nina had also recently sent in a manuscript to a publisher and she was real into that, and Elliot had been volunteering at the planetarium lately.

 

Me? Well, back in middle and elementary school, I'd been at the top of my game in math. Everyone said I was genius. I’d never once had to study for a math test. But here in high school? I’m still fairly advanced in math, and I didn’t usually get anything lower than a B plus but...I just wasn’t a complete math genius anymore. I’d always kind of been considered one of the cool kids, so I guess I just started gravitating towards them more.

 

What was so wrong with that?

 

I sighed, “You know how busy you and Nina had been lately. You two have your things and you’re amazing at them. I just...I don’t have that.”

 

Elliot stared at me, “What are you talking about. So what if you’re not the top mathematician at school? So what if you got a B minus on your last math test. So freaking what? You know what you have? You have us.”

 

“Yeah,” I said, “and you guys are hardly around any more!”

 

Elliot blinked, “Okay, I admit, we’ve been busy, but we still do stuff. We just went to the Holmdale carnival last week.”

 

I remembered that. Everything was fine, except...on all the rides he sat with Nina. In the photo booth, we did one set of the three of us, and then Elliot and Nina took some more.

 

“Yeah, and you and Nina made-out in the photo booth!”

 

Elliot turned red. Even after being in a relationship for a year, he still got embarrassed when I brought that stuff up.

 

“You don’t know what it’s like!” I said. “You don’t know what it’s like to have a best friend your whole life and then just be sidelined!”

 

Elliot’s eyes widened, “Really? I don’t know what it’s like? Eighth grade ring a bell? We didn’t even speak to each other for the entirety of eighth grade! And I was the one sidelined in that scenario!”

 

“That was different!”

 

Deep down, I knew it wasn’t. The circumstances may have been very different, but I still ignored him for a year.

 

“How?”

 

I didn’t know what to say, so I just muttered, “I don’t know.”

 

We stared at each other, and I just wanted to go back to how things were in seventh grade. No one ignored each other, no one was crushing on each other, everything was fine.

 

Elliot sniffled a little, “Look, Marty, if you were feeling left out, you could’ve just told me. I guess- I guess I didn’t realize how preoccupied I’d been.”

 

I was never good with apologies, so I stood up, and pulled Elliot into a big hug.

Elliot Gillespie

 

Astronaut Vlog: Friday, Nina’s Confession
“Elliot, I have to talk to you.” She sat down next to me on one of the couches in Jazz Brew Coffee.

 

I looked at her, “Yeah? What is this about.”

 

Graduation was a few months ago, and now it was off to college. Except…maybe not.

 

“Elliot, you know that we’ll be off to different places in college.” She told me. “I’m going to Harvard, and Principal Fitzwilliam said that I should have a real good reason not to go.”

 

“Nina.”

 

As much as I loved her, and as much as I wanted to stay with her forever…I wanted her to live out her dream, even if it was without me. If this is what she wanted to do with her life, then I wouldn’t stop her.

 

She was looking down at her hands, and I put a hand under her chin, so she could look at me.

 

“Nina,” I said again. “I don’t want to keep you from living your dream.”

 

“Elliot, I don’t want to go,” she blurted. “I know Harvard would be an incredible opportunity, and whatnot, but I don’t want to go. I just…I can’t think of a good reason to tell everyone why.”


It was there and then that I decided I would do it. I finally made my decision.

“What do you want to do tonight?” Elliot asked me, a hand on my arm, guiding me through the house. “Do you want to watch a movie? Go get some pizza?”

 

Elliot opened the sliding door and led me outside, and my eyes widened. He had strung up some lights and lined up chairs on either side of his backyard, making a walkway down the middle that lead to a small platform.

 

His parents, Allison, Brett, the Brewers, and my mom were all standing there, looking on expectantly.

“Elliot…” I started. “What is this?”

 

“Or maybe, I don’t know…” he got down on one knee, and I knew exactly what was coming next. “Get married?” He pulled out a ring and bit his lip.

 

I stared in shock, and then I grinned at Elliot, “What the heck, why not? Yes!”

 

I threw my arms around Elliot and kissed him.

 

I finally had a good reason.

Elliot Gillespie

Astronaut Vlog: Saturday, I Do’s
I couldn’t believe it. This was really happening. I was marrying the girl I had loved since middle school.

She looked beautiful. Allison had managed to find her a great dress, and her dark brown hair was softly curled. She was smiling real big, and I started to tear up.

 

This was actually happening.

 

After we said our vows, the minister started with the traditional wedding sayings.

 

He turned to Nina first, “Do you – Nina Drake – take this man, to be your lawfully wedded husband to have and to hold, to cherish and adore, from this day forward, in sickness and in health as long as you both shall live?”

 

Nina looked at me and smiled, “I do.”

 

Then, he turned to me, “Do you – Elliot Gillespie – take this woman, to be your lawfully wedded wife to have and to hold, to cherish and adore, from this day forward, in sickness and in health as long as you both shall live?”

 

I smiled at Nina and nodded, “I do.”

 

“I now pronounce you husband and wife,” the minister said. “You may kiss the bride.”

 

Nina put a hand on the back of my neck and pulled me into a kiss, and the crowd erupted in cheers.
