The heartthrob that doesn't know he's a heartthrob. The guy that never leaves the fine arts hall. The christian that goes to church three times a week. The senior with the burning blue eyes. He's a virgin that has me under a spell. And while I'm busy trying to steal his virginity, he's stealing my heart.
He's Bradley.


12. Twelve

We were eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches the next day, Saturday. I'd managed to get Brad off of my mind for a while, and i spent some time with Nicolas. Macy was at work and she wouldn't be back for a few hours. 

"Wanna watch a movie, buddy?" He headed straight for the movie box. We ended up watching Alvin and the Chipmunks and Monsters Inc. We both fell asleep a half an hour into Cars. 

The sound of Aunt Macy's voice woke us up. She was on the phone, talking awkwardly. She had gone to the grocery store, so Nick and I helped her unpack the bags. "You don't understand. No. Can you listen to me for a second? I have things to tell you, you know. You're not the only one who has things bottled up." her eyes were teary, and I could tell that her back was hurting. "Nicky, can you please get me the big black pot from under there so I can start dinner." he nodded. "I'm not talking to you about this anymore, Tabitha." she sighed, and I froze. "Goodbye." 

Tabitha is my darling traitor of a mother. 

"Nick...." Aunt Macy whimpered, and I turned around to see him at the verge of crying. 

"Was that mom?"

"Yeah, Honey." she kneeled down to him and caressed his head. 

"Why didn't she want to talk to me?" 

"I don't know, baby." 

"Why didn't you let me talk to her?!" he yelled. "Doesn't she want to know what I sound like?" I covered my mouth, and let out a quick sob. "Why doesn't she love me?"

"She loves you, Nicolas. She does." 

"Then why did she leave?" 

"It doesn't matter." I told him. "Aunt Macy is loving us more than she ever could."

"No, she's not my mom! I want my mom!"

"She didn't want us anymore, Nick." I sniffled. 

"Lila, that's not true." Macy shook her head as Nick cried in her arms. He stood up and ran into his room. I sighed, and watched as my aunt struggled to get up off the floor. I went to the living room to put the movies away.

"So what did she say?"

"We just argued the whole time. I told her how stupid she was and she claimed that she was gonna get better but she's been saying that since she dropped you two here." her words hurt me a bit, but it only got worse when she continued. "I didn't ask for this life. I went from having a good life, I was young and single and fit. And then all of a sudden I had two kids to take care of." My mouth dropped open. "Lila... I-I I didn't mean that. I'm just-" 

"I'm gonna go check on Nicky." I nervously walked to his room. For some reason I was holding my breath as I replayed her words over and over again in my head. "Nick..." I opened the door and looked around, and he wasn't there. "Nick." I moved his blankets and looked in his closet. "Nicolas!" The window was open. 

My baby brother ran away.
