What Lies Beyond the Eyes

Chapter 1: A Day at a Waterpark

I am worried about today honestly. I ran out of my anxiety pills yesterday, and my mom hasn gone and renewed the prescription yet. I want to make this day fun for everyone, but I know Im probably going to be freaking out the whole day because of all the people and chaos at the waterpark. I will try my best though.

It was a warm summer morning on the weekend when my little brother, Danny, and I climbed in the car to go to the waterpark. One more week, not including this weekend, before I start college, and I can feel the pressure mounting on me. Apparently, mom could tell, which is why she basically forced me to take Danny on this outing, so I can loosen up.

My head is killing me, but I need to look on the bright side. Apparently, Gias older stepsister is taking them to the waterpark, so I don have to take her and Romantica to the waterpark too and deal with Gias constant flirting and chatting with Danny all the way over there. Gia is Dannys girlfriend, and Rom is her best friend. Danny is more of a ladys man than I was. His trendy hairstyle with highlights along with his more muscular build lent him to that while I had dark brown (almost black) curly hair with a slim build to contrast him. He looked to be straight out of a comic book while I was a side character that was into running and track. His bright blue wide eyes were a stark contrast to my dark brown eyes and half-asleep eyelids.

His girlfriend directly complimented his own nature with long, bright, blonde hair to go with her beaming personality. Her bright blue eyes were the sky to her hairs sun. Definitely not my type, but hes the one dating her not me.

Mom packed us some snacks and first aid for the trip, and we made our way along the thirty-minute trip to the park. When we finally got there, Gia and Rom were already inside the park, and Danny was in a hurry to get to them.

When we got inside, we could see the whole park. There were resting areas right in front of the entrance where Gia and Rom were, and the slides were right in front of that. There was a lazy river to the left, and a kid area to the right. There were four slides total with various degrees of height that looked menacingly down onto me. ”Ill probably stay on the lazy river and relax the whole day to be honest. ” I thought to myself, quickly going to drop the stuff off at the resting area the two girls were at.

They were alone with a white bag in a chair next to them. Gia ran up and hugged Danny and told him, ”I missed you sooooo much. Come on we have to hurry and go! Sandy already has a head start on us on the slides! ”

”If you were so excited to go on the slides, why haven you already gone up yet? ” I mumbled to myself, admittedly already annoyed and short because of my headache.

Gia, however, heard my comment, and instead of getting annoyed, she instead used it to her advantage. ”Becausssseee, I wanted to wait for Dannyyy! ” She gleefully responded while grabbing onto him.

I almost threw up in my mouth, but I should have seen it coming. I walked right into that one. I glanced over at Gias silent friend standing expectantly beside her, ”And you waited because you didn want to be alone without Gia? ” I tiredly asked her.

She gave a cute little nod and a pleasant smile as if to say, ”thank you for your understanding. ”

I felt bad for her. It had to be extremely tiring to keep up with Gia all day, but from what Ive seen she doesn really mind it. She just follows along quietly behind her, being swept up in the whirlwind that is her friend.

Gia started to drag Danny towards the slides before I told them, ”Hold up Danny. Put some sunblock on first. ”

”Mark! What are you a mom? ” Gia spit at me in a disgusted tone. God, her voice is ear piercingly high. Its like she tries to sound annoying and tries to give me a headache.

I fired back as I leaned toward her while handing the sunblock to Danny, ”No, but my mom would get pissed off if her son came back looking like a tomato, and I would get the blame. ”

Now it was Dannys turn to use something I did to his advantage, and calmed his girlfriend down by applying some sunscreen on her nose saying, ”Did you put on sunscreen? ”

Gia began stuttering from the sudden attack. ”God, I hate this! ” I exclaimed in anguish in my head.

As soon as Danny finished putting th
