Before you read this part - please notice the following: this is just fan-fiction. It's based on "The Faculty", but it's not really movie conform. I'm naughty enough to make necessary changings in the storyline ;)

Zeke took a deep breath. He knew he had to stay calm, though he felt more and more uneasy. Maybe Casey was worse than he seemed to be on the first look. Maybe he was not only scared, but this ... thing ... had done something with him. Messed around with his mind. The things he mentioned were more and more strange and scaring.

"You think, she can come back?"

Casey looked up.
"No, Zeke! I've killed her. And the rest of her folk ... they are already moving on. In search of other planets, other creatures they can use to survive. They won't come back either. We've killed their queen! They never go back to the place, where the queen died."

He smirked when he noticed Zeke's concerned look.
"She was in my head ... just for a short moment ... but I could feel what they feel ... and I knew what they are. They're not evil, Zeke. They just try to survive. In the only way they know."

"Oh God, Case!"
It was so hard to listen and to believe that it was real. All this sounded like Science Fiction, bad Science Fiction. But deep inside he knew, it was not. And he started to understand. For Casey it had been reality. Fucking reality. He had killed someone. Maybe not a human being, but a living creature with feelings and needs. And he had gone through this all alone. No wonder that he was confused and scared ...

"Hey, it's okay! You didn't do wrong. It was not your fault! They or we, Case, they or we! You had no choice!"

Casey sighed.
"No, Zeke. There was no 'we'. It was all about her and you!"

There it was again. Zeke could feel a cold shiver rushing down his spine. Her or him? But this was weird! He took a deep breath to calm down again. He couldn't freak out now ... he just couldn't ... Casey needed him ...

"But I've left Herrington weeks before Marybeth, you know this, right? I've never met her. She has never met me! I was safe from her all along!"

For a moment Casey kept quiet. Then he slowly shook his head.
"No, you were not," he finally whispered.
"And it was my fault!"

Okay, it was enough! Zeke started to feel sick and tired. He was not sure if he really wanted to hear more, but everything would be better than all this weirdness. He straightened his back.

"Case! I think, it's time to tell me all. What has happened under the bleachers? What can you remember?"

He had expected that Casey would try to evade an answer, but to his surprise a slight smile sneaked onto his face.
"I guess, you're not gonna like it," he said.

"Give it a try!"

The smile vanished. Casey nervously bit his lower lip now. He opened his mouth ... and closed it again. Obviously he was fumbling for words for something he had locked up deeply into himself all the time. Finally he gave up.

"Can you hold me, Zeke," he begged him.
"Please! It's much easier to talk about it when I can feel you."

"Sure!"
Zeke pulled him into his arms without hesitation. Held him, gently but tight. It felt good, though he noticed the tension raising up in Casey, when he started to talk.

"It was when everything was over. All the others were ... you know ... they weren't themselves anymore. Taken over by Marybeth. I was alone with her. It was so quiet and peaceful under the bleachers. No need to fight or to run away ... I knew, it would be over soon. But it was okay! I was not afraid any longer.

But then ... suddenly I had to think of you. That I would never see you again. I've missed you ... a lot ... and it hurt so much."

He paused for a moment, swallowing hard.

"I wish, I wouldn't have done it ... thinking of you, I mean. Because ...

She knew, Zeke! She was in my head and she knew everything. She could read all my feelings. Suddenly I could hear her voice. She said: Don't worry, Casey! You want him? You will get him! We will go to Columbus next. We will find him. We will assimilate him. And you can be together with him forever. Forever ..."

Zeke felt his mouth becoming dry. This was not what he had expected. He wanted to say something, to stop him to talk on. But he could hardly get a word out. He could just hold him and feel him trembling ... but maybe it was himself who was trembling that much. He just didn't know.

"Then ... I can't remember how I stuck the pen into her eye. But suddenly she was crying. She screamed so shrill, it nearly hurt me ... and then she started ... to change.

Next I know is that Stokes was there. I mean, Stokes, Zeke, she was back. She took me into her arms and she called my name ... When I woke up again, I was in the hospital. They started to come by, everyone. Most of the teachers. Stan and Stokes. Delilah. And Gabe ... I can remember Gabe. He said: 'Sorry' ... and 'Thank you for saving my life.'

"Was 'bout time," Zeke murmured.

Casey pulled the face.
"You don't get it, right," he said.
"I gave a shit about all of them! Without you, Zeke, the world we know would not exist anymore. I had already given up. But I knew she would hurt you. And I couldn't let her do this ... I just couldn't!"

"Oh shit!"
Realization hit him like a punch in his gut. Annoyance started to rise up, mixed with helplessness. He didn't want this! Up to now he had always solved all his problems alone. It was good this way. Don't expect anything from anyone and no one will ever disappoint you. Casey was the last one he wanted interfering into his life. He always got into trouble just because of him. So he had left Herrington. He had left him. Casey was better off without him. And now this! He killed an alien to keep him save?! Fuck! He definitely didn't want this!

"Damn, Casey! Will you fucking stop this? I don't want you to save my ass constantly, do you get it? Leave me the fuck alone! Go and find your own life!"

He could feel Casey stiffening in his arms and already regretted his rough words. But when Casey looked up to him, he found these determined glint in his eyes.

"I can't!"

Stubborn little shit. Zeke narrowed his eyes.
"Why not? It's not that difficult, you know. You have friends now. You're gonna go to art-school soon. I can't be a part of that life, Casey. You should forget me."

He was not prepared for the answer.
"I love you," Casey said.

Aww... AWWW! Casey fighting to save Zeke. That's so beautiful. I was gobsmacked by Zeke's outburst to Leave me the fuck alone! Go and find your own life!"
How could he be so heartless? But Casey's response was perfect. I guess Zeke has a hell of a lot to think about. When he's got over the shock >:o)

Can't wait for his reaction.

Oh yeah, I think, Zeke has a lot to think about now. But heartless? Well, I guess he was a bit shocked, because Casey is ready to risk his own life for him. He is just not used to it that someone cares that much.

Goodness these guys are tiring me out, so much back and forth and never on the same wave length. Makes me want to crack their heads together and tell them to just kiss and make up.

Sorry! I know there are a lot ups and downs in this story - it was not planned like this ;) But like I said some weeks ago - it will come to an end. With kissing and make up? Hmmm ... we will see, these boys are unpredictable ... and so am I. Maybe I will surprise everyone with a sad, teary ending?

Zeke is so scared to have someone who cares that much for him, he'd rather run away than take a chance, or he'd rather drive Casey away. But Casey's changed, hasn't he? He's not going to just let Zeke push him away. It took a lot of courage to say I love you. And now Zeke's got to deal with that.

I think it is like a shock for Zeke to realize how much Casey cares for him. Maybe he needs his time to let it sink in ... or he is ready to run away now. But wait, he can't, it's his apartment in Columbus, right?

OMG, I love that Casey killed Marybeth for Zeke's sake. And what a shocker for Zeke when Casey told him he loved him. Oh, I can't wait to see how Zeke reacts!

Oh, Casey is a hero! Zeke's hero. He just needs to accept that it is not a bad thing if someone cares for you.

Wow! That was such a different take on the events with Marybeth! I really loved the idea that Casey found his heroism to save Zeke. That she saw Zeke through Casey's mind. That was fantastic. How can Zeke not love him even more? I wonder why this is threatening for him? I hope he can realise how much Casey loves him. Cool plot twist!

Thanks. I'm glad you like the idea - it was fun to play a bit around with the original story. Why it is scaring for Zeke that Casey saved his life? I think, he's so used to it that no one really cares for him, that it feels like a shock first to realize how much Casey cares. I hope too that he can see clearer again soon. ;)

Oh good grief. Ohhh good grief. What a lil' twist there, Marybeth 'speaking' to Casey. I was so mystified by the cliffhanger--"the heck, how'd she know about Zeke??"--but oh, omniscience. :O

And now Zeke's reaching large levels of STUPID over it! Der hey, of COURSE Casey killed her. Je-sus!! I wanna hit him, lol!

Lol, don't be that hard to poor Zeke - he's just shocked about how much Casey risks for him. Of course he doesn't want this ... and of course, Casey doesn't care, he wpuld do it again and again and again ... Poor Zeke ;)
