((Brendan Harte continued from Just Wants A Distraction ))

Brendan had been concentrating on his painting before he suddenly heard a stunningly loud clap of thunder and he was surprised to see a student fall off of his stool beside him. He blinked a little and he knew that he shouldn't laugh at the way that the guy had fell. It looked like it had hurt. He was a little shocked that he hadn't freaked out himself. Oh, the guy who fell had been Jae. Maybe he should check to see that he was okay. That was a nasty fall afterall.

Brendan got off of his stool and he cleared his throat nervously, slowly stepping over to where Jae was cleaning up his mess. "Hey, Jae. Are you okay? You really took a bad fall there." He smiled slightly and he glanced down at Jae, wondering if he should get a paper towel to help Jae clean up more quickly. "It's not very nice weather out there, huh? Hey, I can help you clean that up if you want, Jae?"

He was sure that Jae would like his help as Brendan was feeling a little sorry for him as Jae looked like he was in a bit of pain and he moved to get some paper towels himself. Brendan just wanted to be helpful anyway. He actually crouched down beside Jae and he started to clean up the paint as well with a gentle smile on his face.

Brendan should have been used to Jae snapping at him by now but he didn't and he just wished that Jae was thankful for him helping him out. He didn't understand why Jae seemed to think that he was a bother. He has this free period to be able to complete a painting that he wanted to be perfect. But he didn't think that he was best at coming up with the most creative paintings. He honestly thought that Jae was so much better than he was at art. This was how Brendan honestly felt. He did feel a little jealous of Jae but he couldn't tell Jae how he felt and he had now managed to clean up the paint for Jae. Hm. Maybe he should ask what Jae would think of his painting so far. He could make use of someone's opinion of his art so far and he thought that Jae would be the best person to ask anyway.

Wait, what? Phoenixes? What on earth was Jae talking about? Brendan was blinking in confusion as Jae shoved his handful of paper towels into Brendan's hands and he watched as Jae practically moved over to get some more supplies from the supply closet. Brendan just continued to watch him quietly for a few moments before he got up to his feet and he thrown the rest of the paper towels into the trash. Well, he was guessing that was Jae's way of thanking him. He didn't want to make a big deal out of it and have Jae snap at him again. He should just get back to doing his own painting. But.....

Brendan felt himself mumble a bit too quietly as he was trying to speak to Jae again and he scratched his nose, feeling slightly uncomfortable in the other student's presence. "Hey, Jae," He was shifting a little on his feet and he glanced at Jae's painting for a few seconds. "Can I ask you something?"

Brendan gulped nervously as he could tell that Jae didn't want to be bothered by him and he wasn't sure if he should talk to Jae now. He didn't want to be a bother to the other student and he knew that he should get back to his own painting. Brendan glanced back at his painting and he let out a soft sigh. He wasn't sure if his painting would be good enough. His painting was of a woman in a white dress while holding a red rose and he was only halfway through that. He really wanted Jae's opinion on it badly, but he also wanted to know why Jae would snap at him. He didn't understand why Jae seemed to think that he was a nuisance.

"Well, I really want to know your opinion of my painting so far. I want to know what you think of it." He was looking down at the ground now as he was a bit afraid of keeping eye contact with Jae and he took a step backward towards his stool. "So what is your opinion, Jae? I would really like to hear your thoughts."

Good. He had managed to get that part out of the way. Now he just needed to ask Jae the harder question. Well, it did feel like it would be harder for Brendan to ask. But he really wanted to know why Jae was acting like that towards him.

Brendan slowly looked up to glance into Jae's eyes and he was trying to look calm, hoping that Jae didn't really know how nervous he was of him. "I would also like to know something else. Why do you seem to snap at me a lot? Do you not like me or something? I don't understand why you would do that."

Brendan was relieved that Jae seemed to think that his painting was alright in a way and he was glad that Jae wasn't biting his head off for disturbing him from his other work. However, the people that he was hoping to show the painting first to were not suckers in Brendan's eyes and he wasn't fond of Jae calling his father and his grandparents suckers. But Brendan knew that he wouldn't stand up to Jae for saying that because it was in Brendan's own nature to cower away from others. Ugh. He really hated being like that.

He just gave Jae a small nod and he glanced at Jae's painting again as Jae continued to talk to him. Oh, he was doing a painting of a bird. So that was why he said something about phoenixes. It made sense to him now. It was too bad that Brendan wasn't very good at painting animals himself. He was feeling more envious of Jae now because of how talented he was. But he didn't really like Jae's attitude towards him most of the time.

He had to tell Jae how he was feeling as his father had always told him that he had to let his emotions be known about by the other person who obviously had a problem with him and he frowned a little at Jae. "Funny. I seem to be the only one who is always on the receiving end of your bad attitude in our classes. Do you honestly think I like having my confidence lower by your snappiness towards me all the time?" Brendan was trying to speak to Jae calmly but he was struggling to and he didn't care if Jae would get mad at him again. "I'm just sick and tired of it and I want you to stop it. Okay?"

Brendan wasn't sure if this was the best way for him to say it. But he had to show that he was trying to change from being the shy kid to a more confident person. He wasn't sure if it was working or not on Jae tho. He was kind of regretting opening up to him a little now.

Brendan took a deep breath and he let out a small sigh. He shouldn't have let his feelings get the better of him. Now Jae was treating him like a child because of how he always got oversensitive over the littlest of things and he was now feeling embarrassed. He really shouldn't have opened his mouth. He realized that he should just leave Jae alone. He didn't want to make Jae feel like he should bother him anymore.

"I'm sorry...." He looked away from Jae back his own painting and he hopped back down onto his stool, hoping to concentrate on his painting again. "I shouldn't have asked. I'm sorry for bothering you. I didn't mean to be a nuisance to you, Jae."

He gazed back at Jae's painting for a few seconds and he chuckled softly. "You know.... I'm actually very envious of you, Jae." He was being honest right now and he couldn't believe that he was still talking to Jae. "You just very creative and talented and I just don't think I will ever be as good as you. I'm just terrible at doing paintings of animals. I just can't get it right. .....Is it okay if I watch you paint right now? I hope that didn't sound creepy or anything."

Brendan was glad that Jae would let him watch, although he wouldn't be able to complete his own work and he wasn't feeling like he was in a good mood for continuing at the moment anyway. He didn't really want to get into a huge agreement with Jae as he hated getting into fights and he really wanted to take a closer look at Jae's own work. He moved his stool over a little bit closer to Jae and he started to watch Jae continue on his work quietly.

After a while, Brendan heard another clap of thunder and he felt himself jump slightly. Jeez. The weather today sure was terrible. He really didn't like it when it was raining and he got out his phone, glancing at his phone. It was almost the end of his free period and he wasn't very enthusiastic about his next class. He should really get to packing up his belongings soon.

Brendan tried to shift up to his feet from his stool and he slipped a little, accidentally shoving Jae with his elbow as he was concentrating on his painting. Oh, no. Brendan's clumsiness had striked again and he had a feeling that Jae would be really mad with him. Brendan gulped as he nervously took a glance at Jae's painting again. No, no, no. Why did he always manage to screw things up a lot?

"Jae.... I.... I'm sorry..... It was an accident. I swear...."

Brendan listened to Jae's hurtful words and he remained silent. He didn't know that Jae's outburst would make him feel so upset. He glanced away from Jae and he couldn't get any words out of his mouth. He was just so cowardly to speak. He couldn't apologize to Jae again. That would just make things a lot worse with him. Brendan cleared his throat and he could feel himself want to cry. He couldn't let himself cry. He didn't want to be sent as a crybaby. He didn't want to seem like he was weak or more useless in front of Jae. How could he make this up to Jae?

Brendan looked back at Jae's painting and he was trying to block Jae's negative words out of his head. He had to do something to make Jae hate him less. But what? It's not like he knew what would make Jae give him another chance. Unless he could try to do something useful for him. Maybe he could help Jae in a way and he wasn't going to leave Jae alone right now.

"I'm not going to leave right now. I want to make it up to you, Jae. I'm sorry for ruining your shirt and your painting. I deserved everything that you said to me." Brendan mumbled quietly and he was shifted on his feet uncomfortably. "How about I do a new painting for you? Would that make me less useless to you? Please I still need to do my own painting too, but I don't want you to stay mad at me. Please, Jae?"

Brendan realized that he was just making things worse between him and Jae and he knew that he should back off now. There was no point in trying to make things up to Jae if he didn't want to listen to him. Brendan was going to listen to Jae now and he was going to leave him alone. He didn't want to make Jae's temper get more worse than it was now. He still didn't want to leave the classroom as he had to continue with his own painting and he decided that he had to focus on his own work instead of someone else's. He did just want to help but if Jae didn't want his help, then he was going to back off and leave him alone. Brendan didn't want to cause more trouble between the both of them now.

"I'm still sorry about what happened, Jae..... I wish that I wasn't such a clumsy idiot...."

Brendan moved back to his stool and he sat down slowly, trying not to let Jae's words get his mood to sink any lower than it had already. He hated how he made himself an easy target for anyone to step all over. Mainly because Brendan had always believed that he deserved it. Ha, ha. He was feeling really pathetic right at that moment and he knew that he had to take his mind off of these negative feelings that he was feeling inside of him.

"This is so stupid...."

Brendan shook his head a little and he was trying to concentrate on his painting again. He didn't want to get distracted by Jae who was still swearing behind him quietly and he started to carefully paint some red over the rose in his painting. He still wanted to make this one his perfect painting so far. He wanted his family to be proud of him. Even if he knew that he could screw things up with other people around him.

Brendan heard Jae leaving the classroom and he stopped what he was doing, sighing softly. He was just finding it hard to concentrate now and he decided that he should leave as well. He could always do this another day. He couldn't stop thinking about what happened between him and Jae. He really had to do something to fix things between the both of them.

Brendan packed things up quickly and he left the classroom a little while later after Jae had gone. He was hoping to get an idea when he got home. He just wanted to be useful for someone. Just anyone. Well, he still needed to do a song for Rick and he wanted the bitter tension between him and Jae to disappear.
