7. I HAVE A BROTHER

 

 

The ride was quite the entire time. No one spoke or made a noise except for the occasional shuffle to get more comfortable. The silence didn’t really surprise me but still it was unnerving just how quite it was. The image of rick just lying there in his own blood made my skin crawl. I don’t know why considering I just met him that I would feel so close yet distant to rick. I don’t understand why I wouldn’t even leave his side it just felt wrong.

We pulled up along the side of the street a block away from my house. Everything was dark but I could see the sun rising from the corner of my eyes. Everything was silent and there was no movement at all on the street. There are no people, cats, or even dogs on the street. None of us made to get out of the car we just sat there listening to the sound of silence.

“Amelia,” I heard someone say I wasn’t sure everything just didn’t seem the same. I looked up though and saw that all the guys were looking at me.

“Amelia I’ll have one of the guys call you when I find anything about rick okay,” jerry said looking at me though his sunglasses. He sounded tired exhausted even but I wouldn’t blame him he drove all night.

“Yeah okay, so who’s walking me to my house?” I asked all of them. Larry raised his hand and started to unbuckle his belt. I took my belt off and climbed out of the car with Larry. I don’t know why but I took Larry’s hand and just held on as if it were a life line.

The walk back was silent and I never let go of his and but he never asked me to or made a move and started to unbuckle his belt. I took my belt off and climbed out of the car with Larry. I don’t know why but I took Larry’s hand and just held on as if it were a life line.

The walk back was silent and I never let go of his and but he never asked me to or made a move for me let go. When we reached the tree next my house he gave me big hug and then placed comforting kiss on my forehead. We did this whenever we didn’t feel good or didn’t feel like talking. I started climbing up the tree and he watched me go up. He left once I reached the branch that leads into my window.

I changed into my pajamas and fell asleep. I woke up from my sleep by a huge crash coming from the kitchen but I didn’t even bother to get up way too exhausted to investigate. I heard talking but I couldn’t hear a thing and didn’t even try to make out what they were saying.  Suddenly I heard a knock at my door. My dad walked in and he didn’t look very happy. I started to wonder if maybe they found out I snuck out last night. Please like they would notice.

“Sweetheart can you get up there’s something very important your mom and I need to talk to you about.” I pulled the covers off of me and shuddered at the cold air that hit me. I kept wondering what it was about. I wonder if they’re going to get a divorce or maybe my mom is pregnant wait we could be moving. I didn’t change out of my pajamas and walked barefoot down the stairs.

My mom and dad sat nervously on the couch holding each other’s hands now I know something is wrong. They are never nervous sure they could anxious but never nervous. I cleared my throat so they knew I was there. I sat down in the chair across from them and looked at them expectantly.

“Well honey I really don’t know where to start but um,” my dad started to say but my mom took over.

“Amelia you have an older brother,” She said straight to the point like always. Wait a minute back up I HAVE AN OLDER BROTHER!
