Chapter 2 - Reunited
As the two bears walked away, laughing, Bonnie stood back up. He growled as they walked out of view, then glanced at Freddy. He picked up his gear and walked over to Freddy. He extended a paw and helped the bear onto his feet.
“You alright?” Bonnie asked. Freddy picked up his bow-tie and suitcases.
“Yeah...yeah, I'm fine.” The bear nodded. Bonnie frowned and glanced behind him.
“What was that about…?” The bunny asked, folding his arms. Freddy frowned and his ears lowered.
“Red and I don't get along,” Freddy sighed, “We're brothers but, he hates me to death.”
“I saw him talking to Clyde earlier.” Bonnie nodded.
“Clyde?” Freddy's eyes widened a little, “Clyde's here?”
Bonnie nodded cautiously, “You know him?”
“We went to the elementary together,” Freddy replied, “He's a cute one.”
Bonnie raised an eyebrow, but decided not to pry, “Well, better go to your room before they come back then.”
Freddy glanced at a door across the corridor and frowned, “I share a room with him.”
Bonnie sighed, “That has to suck.”
“Well...it's Friday,” Freddy shrugged, “Maybe I'll be able to make peace with him over the weekend.”
“You can only hope.” Bonnie nodded. Freddy smiled at Bonnie and hugged him. Bonnie's cheeks flushed and heated up when he felt the bear's warm touch.
“Thanks for standing up for me...” The bear pulled away, he grinned at Bonnie and approached his room door. He opened the door and stepped inside. Bonnie and Freddy waved at each other, then Freddy closed the door.
Bonnie smiled to himself and walked to the end of the hallway. He approached his room and glanced at a small white board beside the door, there was a small message written on it, it read;
We're coming for you.
Bonnie shuddered and quickly erased the message off the board, “What the hell…?” He shook his head and grabbed a small marker, he drew a picture of a guitar and walked into his room.
The bunny placed his bag and his guitar on his bed and folded his arms. His room was remarkably clean, there were dozens of posters – all music-centric – completely littering the surrounding walls. There was one window opposite the door, and under the window was a small wooden desk with a laptop atop of it. Beside the laptop was a few boxes of stationary supplies and some music sheets.
Bonnie grabbed a chair and dragged himself to his desk. He stood back up and snatched his backpack from the bed. He walked back over to his desk and threw himself on the chair.
“Should I study?” Bonnie asked himself, glancing at his bag. He shook his head and pulled his laptop close to him.
“Maybe if I study, my teacher'll get off my back...” Bonnie spoke to himself, “I shouldn't have lied to my teacher...I'll probably regret that..”
“What'd you lie about?” A new voice asked. Bonnie turned around suddenly and saw none-other than Clyde standing at the door. He entered the room and closed the door shut behind him.
“Clyde? What're you doing in here? This is my dorm room...” Bonnie said, as Clyde approached. Clyde pushed Bonnie's guitar off the bed and jumped on it, he stared at the ceiling and sighed.
“I asked you a question,” Clyde began, “What'd you lie about?”
“Why the hell should I tell you?” Bonnie asked.
“Because we're friends, Bonnie.” Clyde sat up and glanced at the taller bunny.
“Were. We were friends,” Bonnie responded, “Now get the hell out of my room.”
Clyde grinned and pulled out his phone, he turned up the volume and scrolled through a playlist, “Audio recording four...” Clyde muttered. Bonnie raised an eyebrow and watched Clyde scroll through his phone.
“Ah, there it is,” Clyde announced, “Remember this?”
The phone began playing a bad quality version of what Bonnie had said earlier, “Mom and dad, they never stop fighting. They keep me up at night with their constant SCREAMING! And I can't sleep...”
Clyde stopped the recording, “From what I know, you live here.” Clyde grinned.
“I'm sure Mike would love to hear this,” Clyde stood up, “Detention for...one? Two months, maybe? Lying isn't polite, Bonnible.”
“That wasn't a complete lie,” Bonnie frowned, “You know that my parents fight all the time. I go there every weekend to help out, you know that, your family lives next door.” Bonnie stood up and approached Clyde, he looked down at the shorter bunny and growled.
He snatched Clyde's phone and glared at him, “I don't know what your game is with me,” Bonnie bit his lip, “But you better get the hell out of my room before I break your arm again.”
Clyde frowned and his ears dropped, he nodded and trudged out of the room in shame. He held the door open with his paw, he glanced over at Bonnie.
“I'm sorry, okay?” He said.
“You're nothing but trouble.” Bonnie pried Clyde's fingers off the door and slammed it shut.
Clyde stared at the door, why couldn't he and Bonnie be friends again? Clyde groaned and looked away from the door. He saw a door open at the end of the hallway. Chica and the other chicken from earlier had left one of the rooms.
“Chi...wait...wait for me…!” Chica panted.
“We haven't even gone outside yet,” Chi sighed, she shook her head, “You need to lay off the pizza.”
“You...can't, tell me what to...to..do...” Chica continued to pant. Chi grabbed her hand and dragged down the corridor.
“We have four flights of stairs to climb! Let's go, go, go!” Chi ran upstairs, with Chica following her slowly behind.
This is the boys dorm, I wonder why those two are here…
Clyde glanced over at the door the two girls had come out of and saw a fox walk out. He was wearing a pirate's hat and was holding a skateboard in his paw, his other hand had a plastic hook attached to it.
Ugh, it's the cosplay freak. Clyde shuddered.
“Starin' at me for a reason'?” The fox asked, looking over at Clyde with an irritated expression planted on his face.
“I was just wondering why you were dressed like a pirate.” Clyde responded.
“Well, if ye must know,” The fox walked over, “I am fond, of pirates.”
“I can tell...” Clyde folded his arms, “Never grow up?”
“Pretty much.” The fox shrugged.
Hmph, I like this guy…
Clyde had never spoken with the fox before, there were only two foxes in the school, both of them had extremely different personalities. Clyde had never spoken to ANY fox before in-fact, so he was beginning to get a little worried.
“What's your name?” The bunny asked, smiling at the fox.
“Argh, it be Foxy my boy,” The fox extended his hook, “Foxy the pirate fox.”
Clyde smirked and shook the fox's hook, “Quite an interesting name...” Clyde commented.
“Foxy~? Where'd you go, captain!?” Chica shouted from the stairs.
“Imma comin'!” He shouted, he glanced at Clyde and ruffled his hair, “I'll talk to ya later, Clyde.”
Clyde watched Foxy run off and he felt warm inside, “How'd he know my name…?” He asked himself. He folded his arms and proceeded to walk down the hallway, he glanced at the stairs and listened for the echoes of Chica complaining, mixed with the footsteps.
Freddy walked out of his room and sighed, “I can't believe I have to share my room with that jerk...” He glanced at the board beside his room and picked up the marker that lied atop of it.
He bit his lip and thought for a second, “Ah.” He began drawing a picture on the board. Clyde glanced around the corner and watched Freddy until he finished drawing. Clyde walked around the corner and tapped Freddy on the shoulder.
Freddy turned and looked over at Clyde, “Oh, hey Clyde.”
“Hi Freddy.” Clyde greeted, with a smile.
“It's been a little while.” Freddy folded his arms.
“Three years?” Clyde responded. Freddy nodded.
“Look, about the whole...thing that happened...” Freddy frowned. Clyde smiled at him and pet the bear on your shoulder.
“It wasn't your fault.” Clyde said.
The bear frowned and shook his head, “No...no, it is Clyde. If I had just kept my mouth shut, they wouldn't have expelled you.”
“I wanted to be expelled, Fred,” Clyde replied, “It's fine...”
“You sure?” Freddy asked. Clyde nodded and grinned.
“I'm sure,” Clyde glanced at Freddy's door, “You share a room with your brother?”
Freddy frowned and nodded, “Unfortunately, yes.”
Freddy folded his arms, “Where's your room?”
“Right there.” He pointed to a room just across the hall from them.
“Maybe we could hang out at some point, like old times?” Freddy asked.
“'Old times'?” Clyde scoffed, “It's only been a few years.”
“If he's in my room, I'm gonna flip out.” Red's voice could be heard, accompanied by his footsteps.
“Wanna hang out now?” Clyde whispered. Freddy didn't hesitate, he ran into Clyde's room. Clyde followed him and slammed the door behind him.
“I don't want to have to deal with Red.” Freddy said, sitting on Clyde's bed. Clyde frowned and rested against the door.
“He can be an asshole.” Clyde shrugged, “They were harassing me earlier.”
“I'm really hoping that I can get a room change.” Freddy shook his head.
“You can always share your room with someone.” Clyde suggested.
Freddy looked around Clyde's room, “Can I crash on your couch?” Clyde shrugged.
“Eh, what the hell, sure.” Clyde peeked out the door, “Want me to grab your stuff?” Freddy nodded.
Clyde walked out of the room and closed the door behind him. Freddy stood up and walked over to the couch and threw himself on it, “Pretty comfortable.”
Clyde walked over to Red and Freddy's room and knocked on the door, the door opened a few seconds later and Red stood there, “What the hell do you want, asshole?” Red boomed.
“I-I just wanted to let you know that...” Clyde began.
“What? I'm busy.” Red folded his arms, “And you still owe me from before.”
“I-I know but, there's somebody downstairs claiming to be your father...” Clyde lied. Red bit his lip.
“Goddamn it.” Red pushed Clyde out of the way and walked down the hallway, “Hold on!” He walked downstairs. Clyde grinned and walked into Red's room. Bonnie watched Clyde enter the room and raised an eyebrow.
“What's he doin'…?” He asked himself. He walked out of his room and down the corridor, he glanced at the stairs to see Red's shadow slowly walk downstairs. He approached Red and Freddy's room and peered inside.
Clyde was ransacking the room, “Where's his stuff…?” Clyde asked himself.
“Gotta hurry up, Freddy's waiting for me...” He spoke to himself, “He's such a cutie...” He smiled to himself.
Bonnie growled, He's mine..
Clyde glanced at the door, “What was that?”
Bonnie held his breath and ran away from the door. Clyde walked over to the door and peered outside, “Probably someone's dog...” He whispered to himself. He shut the door and scratched his ears, “Now...where's his stuff…?” He glanced at the bed and saw a suitcase under it.
“Ah, there it is.” Clyde said, picking up a few suitcases from under the bed. He grinned and stole Red's cellphone and laptop, “Revenge.” The bunny opened the door and walked into the hallway.
“When I see that freak, I'm gonna hurt him...” Clyde could hear Red's voice.
“Shit…!” Clyde whispered to himself. He ran across the hall and dove into his room. He shut the door and glanced over at Freddy. The bunny smiled when he saw the bear fast asleep. He placed Freddy's suitcases beside the couch and sat on the bed.
He stared at Freddy as he slept, a grin making itself known on the bunny's face. Bonnie quietly opened the door and peered inside, his ears lowered and he frowned. He silently closed the door and stepped back.
He growled to himself and sighed, “HEY!” A voice boomed behind Bonnie. The bunny turned around, but before he could react, he was thrown against the wall. He looked up to see Red glaring daggers at him. He grabbed Bonnie by his shirt and held him above his shoulders.
“WHY DID YOU DO THIS!?” Red shouted in his face, “We were on EVEN ground before!”
“What are you talking about!?” Bonnie exclaimed. Red pinned the bunny against the wall and growled at him.
“YOU COMPLETELY DESTROYED MY ROOM! WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING!?” Red boomed. Clyde stepped outside of his room, with Freddy following him shortly after.
“I don't know what you're talking about…!” Bonnie cowered and tried to get out of Red's grip. Clyde frowned and stared at the ground with a guilty expression. Freddy walked over to Red and pulled him off the bunny.
“Calm down, brother...” Freddy said, in a calm manner. Red growled and punched Freddy across the face. Freddy fell backwards hit the wall, he slid down the wall and onto the floor.
Red growled at them, “You three need to stay the HELL away from me!” The bear walked back into his room and slammed the door shut. Bonnie slid down the wall beside Freddy and they stared at each other for a few seconds.
Freddy and Bonnie both frowned, “I'm sorry.” They both said in unison. Clyde growled to himself and helped Freddy up, “Let's head back inside...” Clyde dragged Freddy into Clyde's room, leaving Bonnie alone in the hallway.
The bunny sobbed and hugged his legs, he looked up and saw Foxy standing in front of him, “Ye alright, Bon? Ye've got a few bruises...” Foxy extended a paw and Bonnie grabbed his paw. Foxy pulled the bunny off the ground and onto his feet.
Bonnie nodded, his lip quivering a bit, “Aw, don't cry, ye'll be fine...” Foxy ruffled Bonnie's hair. Bonnie nodded and hugged the fox. The fox pet Bonnie on the back and pulled away. They stared at each other for a few seconds, they both looked away from each other, blushing a little.
“I thought you were supposed to be with Chica and Chi today...” Bonnie broke the silence. Foxy shrugged.
“Exercisin' ain't my thing,” Foxy simply answered, “Don't worry about me though.”
Bonnie nodded, “Well uh...I got studying to do, so...I'll see you around, I guess.”
Foxy nodded and walked away from Bonnie, “See ye later, Bon.” Bonnie nodded and walked back to his room, he bit his lip and glanced over at Clyde's room. His ears dropped, he opened his door and trudged inside, slamming the door shut behind him.
