KevREV!Edd Part 8
“Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand?? Kev you can’t just say you went out skating with him and not say anything else!! What happened? Where’d you go? Did you like, just run into him there, or—?”
“No…” Kevin said as he stared up at Nazz’s ceiling. “We went on my bike to a play and then we went and got dinner and went skating.”
“Really?” Nat looked hesitant. “Kev that kinda sounds like a…”
“It was a date. I asked him out.” Kevin closed his eyes as silence fell in the room. He could tell without looking that they were exchanging looks of either concern or confusion.
Kevin sat up and opened his eyes. “I found an old journal… and some old yearbooks. I thought I might like him since I remembered him. Then I found the journal and… it looks like I’ve liked him for a long time. Since like, the sixth grade.”
Nazz’s mouth fell open. “You

Mr. Barr and Nat were pacing the office of the school behind the secretary’s desk. Nazz had arrived and was in the nurse’s office with Marie helping her until the ambulance arrived to take her to the hospital. Edd was pouring over the video from the backlot over and over and over. Kevin walked outside, barely on camera, and was attacked from somewhere off screen. He was then dragged through across the field of camera view and shoved in the back of what looked like an early ought’s model Toyota maybe? It was hard to guess at the little insignia from where the camera was positioned, but they seemed to leave the parking lot facing west.
He slammed his fist angrily into the table. Mr. Barr stopped pacing. He crossed to Edd. “It’s not your fault.”
“Yes it is. I insisted we keep going to school. I waited to tell him the truth about the night of the party until they got desperate and scared enough to do something like this. I’m the one who made

That evening, Kevin was laying on his bed with his shirt off. He glanced at the clock feeling drained. 7:15pm. He sighed, thinking he should get ready. He sat up and looked out the window. His heart skipped a beat as he recognized a face in the window across the way. He jumped up and watched Eddward as he sat at his desk, which was apparently adjacent to the window. He was leaning close to something Kevin couldn’t see and moving his arms enthusiastically over whatever it was. Kevin smiled as he watched. Edd sat back suddenly after what seemed like a few minutes. He looked at his wrist, then turned and looked over at Kevin's house, and Kevin hurriedly hid behind the curtains. His heart was pounding as he slid to the floor. He sat in silence for a while before he heard a knock on his bedroom door.
“Kev?” His father said quietly.
“Yeah?” Kevin stood as his door opened and Edd stood there with his dad. Edd looked Kevin up and down and looked away.
KevREVEdd Part 23 (last part)Kevin gasped once more for breath before he fell forward. Edd leapt forward and caught him as he crashed to the ground. He lay Kevin down on the ground and pressed as hard as he could on the wound.
“No, no, no, no, no…” Edd was shaking his head in denial. His eyes were wide, and he was trembling. Dan was backing away, stunned by what he’d done, bloody knife in hand. He’d been wasted beyond belief for all his previous crimes. Now he was sober, and his victim lay dying, with all of supporters gone, and he was terrified. He screamed and ran from them, dropping the knife. It hit the ground with a clatter and flicked more blood on Edd’s face. He barely flinched as he tried to wrap his mind around the task at hand.
Keep on the pressure, keep Kevin awake, don’t panic. The absolute worst he could do for Kevin was panic. But it was happening anyway. He was shouting at Kevin to stay with him. Kevin was mouthing words without sound and coughing up blood.
KevREV!Edd Part 4
Saturday dawned clear and bright. At precisely 11:15am, Edd’s black Camry rolled up in front of Marie’s family’s trailer. She waved goodbye to her younger sister and jogged to the passenger door. She was wearing a knee-length black sundress with a blue button up sweater, black tights and blue converse.
Edd was wearing a plain green t-shirt with his usual hoodie and jacket, black jeans and boots. He was acting casually as they pulled up into Eddward’s driveway and began walking toward Nazz’s. There were already people milling around in the yard and music pouring out the door. Marie was already getting checked out by some of the guys in the yard. She felt Edd slide an arm around her shoulders as they approached the door.
“Marie!” She turned and saw Kevin smiling as he jogged up after them. Edd felt annoyance rip through him as Marie smiled and hugged Kevin back. He lifted her off the ground and twirled her playfully as she giggled and held tight

Edd was standing outside the gym feeling panic rise in his chest. Where was Marie? She always waited outside the locker rooms for him, and she was nowhere to be found. Desperate, Edd grabbed a freshman girl as she walked by. She looked startled, and he apologized. “I’m sorry, but I can’t find my friend Marie. Would you check the girl’s restroom for her? She has blue hair.” The girl looked suspicious as she entered the girl’s room to check. “Thank you.” Edd said as the door swung closed.
“Edd!” Edd turned at the sound of his name. Nat was sprinting toward him looking panicked as well. “Have you seen Kev? He left with some guy that had your tags.”
Edd’s stomach dropped. “Had my…” Edd was interrupted by a scream from the women’s restroom. He sprinted through the door with Nat in tow. Edd skidded to a halt at the last stall to see Marie huddled in the corner by the toilet.
KevREV!Edd Part 5
Kevin lay on his bed after his shower for hours. He and his father had returned from the hospital with a new anxiety medication. His father was advised to keep him home from school for a while longer. Kevin texted Nazz, Nat, and Marie when he got home.
To Nazz, Nat, Marie: Hey just got home. They said panic attack, I gotta take meds for anxiety now.
To Kev: Hey, dude! Glad Ur feeling better! U rly scared me!
To Red: Hey, man. Sorry I didn’t hear till Nazz told me. :/
To Kevin: Glad to hear it. You should let Double D know too. Here’s his #...
Kevin thanked them all for the encouragement, and let Marie know he would think about calling Edd. He turned his phone off and sat up. He didn’t like sitting in his room for long periods. It felt creepy. He looked around at the trophies and the notebooks and the books and felt like he was invading someone’s space. His father encouraged him to explore his room. For the most part the only thing he’d been able to bring h
KevREV!Edd Part 6
Sunday morning, Kevin lay spread out on Nazz’s floor in her bedroom. Her cat had curled up on his stomach and he scratched it lazily behind its ears as Nat and Nazz gossiped happily about whatever the fuck. He was in a daze. His body ached from his fight, but he felt victorious.
“Huh!?” Kev sat up, and the cat sank its claws into his chest, refusing to lose its spot. Kevin yelped and Nazz stooped to pry the cat away . “What’s up?” he asked, wincing as he rubbed his chest.
“We were asking where you were yesterday.” Nat said.
“I went over to check on you, and your dad said you were out. Now you show up and you have bruises, a limp and another busted lip.”
“Yeah, dude.” Nazz chimed in, “and you’ve been out of it all day, so spill. We know something happened.”
Kevin looked at their eager faces and took a deep breath. They were his best friends&
KevREVEdd Part 19
Kevin was now lying on his side on a dusty shag carpet. His head was still pounding. He saw cigarette smoke rising from a table to his left. A large window was to his right throwing light across the floor and wall behind him. The sun was already setting. Sure he was alone for the moment, he tugged at the tape at his wrists and ankles. They didn’t give, so he reached up toward the tape over his mouth. He would have to bite it off.
Before he could touch it, he felt his upper arm smashed with something heavy. He cried out as he heard and felt his bone break with a sickening crunch. He was breathing hard through his nostrils, and he managed a peek up at his attacker. The guy from the video. The one who had raped Edd. He was a lot bigger in person. He was actually rather handsome, or he would have been if he weren’t wearing a deranged expression of joy, mingled with anxiety and desperation. It wasn’t a mix conducive to showing one’s best side. He had wavy black hair,
Broken Smile [KevEdd] Ch.1 Chapter 1
Four years later:
Kevin leaned forward in his chair as he flipped another page of his yearbook and smiled at the fond memories. He inhaled deeply and stretched his arms out, placing them behind his head. He had found himself in this same position more and more often lately. Life hadn’t taken him very far and he longed for the old days at the cul-de-sac when he was a lot closer to happy.
He sometimes felt guilty for being so unhappy with his life. He had a beautiful girlfriend and his parents still payed for all his living expenses, the only thing holding him back was himself. There was no reason for him to get so down over nothing. He sighed and turned another page, blushing when he saw Double D’s gap-toothed smile looking back at him.
Broken Smile [KevEdd] Prologue Prologue
It was a hot summer day and Eddy was trying to salvage his latest already failing scheme. “How do you ever expect to make any money if you’re always giving up!” Eddy yelled at double D as he tried to hide under his hat. “I told you from the very beginning that this was an awful idea Eddy! I never agreed to be a part of your plan.” Edd muttered.
“What are you talking about!” Eddy screamed back, “You’re the one that wrote up the blueprints and everything!”. “Only because you forced me to!” he retorted.
Eddy picked up one of the water balloons from the bucket next to him and a grin spread across his face,
How Did We End Up Like This: AndleyFor a while now, touring for the band Black Veil Brides hadn’t been easy. None of them wanted to be in the presence of the other four anymore, and it was getting increasingly hard for any of them to even want to show up to their shows. Everyone was getting mad on a daily basis, if they weren’t still mad from the day before, and every little thing that they did annoyed someone. Ashley left his boots in the middle of the bus, everyone got mad. Andy insisted on smoking on the bus, everyone got mad. CC didn’t want to wake up until half an hour before their shows, everyone got mad. Jinxx and Jake insisted on writing new music, while yelling at each other, everyone got mad. No matter what one of the others did, someone was likely to get mad at the others. Everyone was getting tired of seeing the same four people day in and day out and not being able to see their loved ones. The band Black Veil Brides seemed to be heading toward a break up.
“Alright you five,” Jo
PCHS Ch Four"Pass your essays to the front of the room and don't dawdle." Mr. Kirkland ordered. Double D eyed his essay, hoping he hadn't written a terrible boring essay.
"You know he only said three pages, right?"
Double D glanced at Kevin, who hadn't spoken to him since the bus.
"At least three. I found myself something interesting to write about."
"What do you even do besides make faulty contraptions?"
"Well, Kevin, I don't spend all my days building contraptions like you think. I do other things, as well." Double D handed the stack of essays to Kirkland. "Like..." He trailed off when he noticed Kevin stopped paying attention. "Nevermind..."
His day was turning out to be silent and awkward with Kevin. But he pressed on to lunch, determined to not allow the other to ruin his day.
"I take it your day went less than well, Eddy?" Double D asked as he sat next to his steaming friend.
"Does it LOOK like it went okay?" He shook his head. "I hate school. It's so stupid." Eddy huffed and jabbed his fork
