Purple Sky,,,the title and ending of my first posted piece

this is the ending to the first thing i posted

On the outside, Jason was covering himself up with a tough guy act. He didn’t want to look like a sissy in front of all these guys, which is how he really felt. Inside, his emotions were screaming at him like a temper tantrum of a 4 year old without any toys. His parent’s voices were tracing through the back of his head. Don’t let Seth pressure you to do anything you don’t want to, sweetie. He’s a good boy and all but I know what kinds of things he gets into. Just don’t do it. He could hear his mother’s voice, it sounded like she was the one sitting in front of him, not Seth. Then his father’s voice took it’s turn. Lisa, don’t hound him like that before he leaves. But your mother is right, son. Go and make me proud of your working skills, not your partying skills.
But that was it. His father’s voice was gone, his mother’s voice was gone, and his child temper tantrum was gone. His fingers, clumsy and sweaty, picked up the small oval. Something in his brain was making his body pick it up and put it in his mouth so he moved along with it and didn’t fight back. He swallowed with a drink that Brad handed to him and Seth swallowed in unison. Jason realized he made the worst mistake that would probably drag him down for the rest of his life. He let himself go.
Three hours after that very moment, Seth and Jason were rolling around on the floor, claiming that they were being rolled up in tortilla shells. Brad was having the time of his life just watching, along with everyone else. Another hour later, and they were talking to the desk lamp. Every picture they saw was real. People inside of the pictures were talking to them and moving right in front of them and they literally had no idea it wasn’t fake. They thought they could walk through walls when in reality they just walked through a door. All things that were stable, were now moving attractions to their eyes. Brad turned into a snake right before them and they ran away in fear, hearing hissing in their heads when it was really only Brad laughing at them. They were on a planet that is far, far away from anything that anyone could imagine. But that far, far away planet was only a swallow of an oval shaped drug away.
Since they didn’t sleep, they got to watch the sunrise. Both of them were in a much calmer mood than just a few hours ago, but imagination was still at its peak. Shades of every color, painted themselves across the sky. Seth was sitting back in amazement, absorbing the colors into his skin. Jason was tense, but only from concentrating. He was too busy listening to everything happen. He could hear the strokes of a paintbrush add in more color every time the sun rose a little higher. He could hear the rays of sunlight stretching out to grab him and steal him away. The very top of the massive circle was peeking over the horizon of yellow grass and blue trees.
They thought, that soon a huge round ball of fire will bounce up into the sky, and give light to the puffy white clouds, the clear blue skies, and the long green grass. But as the sun rose more and more, the horizon of yellow grass didn’t turn green and the tall blue trees didn’t turn green either. They turned red, then orange, then black, then purple, and back to yellow. The sun beamed with furious rays of pure jet black. Jason stopped the peaceful painting that was forming itself inside his mind and Seth snapped out of the calm relaxation he was in.
Jason regretted his decision now more than ever. Nightmares were stacking up inside of him. He was screaming at the top of his lungs out of pure anger, exposing the veins that run through his neck and forehead. Seth panicked and started shaking him. It was no help to Jason, it only lead to his hands grabbing Seth with all of his force and plummeting him onto the floor. Then tears of pure shock and terror started running down his face. Seth was motionless on the ground, but still breathing. He stood over top of him and cried with rivers of regret streaming down his face. He caught his breath and looked out the window one last time.
Brad, fearful enough to come within a reaching distance of Jason, ran to Seth’s side. He rolled him over onto his back and picked him up. With Seth in his arms, Brad looked Jason in the eye and turned away towards the couch. He tried as hard as he could to gently lay Seth on the couch, but every time he moved him too much, he belted out in horror and pain. Jason’s eyes never turned away from the window the whole time. He was too disgusted of the purple sky he saw before him.
