Brotherly Love

Jack and Alex's parents get married making them step-brothers, but the two end up sharing a little bit more than just brotherly love. [Jalex.]


9. Chapter Nine - Final

Alex and I sat in the living room at home with our parents sitting in front of us with disappointed looks on their faces. After the wedding, everyone was sent home and out parents didn't start their honeymoon until next week. Alex and I thought of a way out when we were packing to come back, but thing was strong enough for our parents to believe. The car ride home was a long and silent one. The second that we go into the house, our parents sat us down.

“Can one of you please explain to us what's going on?” My mom asked nicely. She was always the passive aggressive type. It was quite still, until I sighed and choked back a sob. 

“I'm so sorry mom.” I said and rested my face in my hands. 

“Boy, “ Alex’s dad started talking. “We just need to know what is going on between you two. Was this just some experimenting thing that was going on? Its okay, I experiments too when I was younger-”

“Eh, no dad stop.” Alex cut his dad off. I'm happy that he did. I didn't want to hear about my new step dad talking about experimenting with other guys after he just married my mom. 

“Son, I- we, just want to know what's going on.” Alex and I both sighed. 

“Jack and I kind of,” Alex stopped, I guess he was trying to find that words that didn't sound weird, but all of it was kind of weird. “We kind of started seeing each other.” he finally said. 

“So do that mean you boy are, together, romantically?” his dad asked. I didn't want to say anything so I just kept still. Alex nodded. Both of our parents sighed. The looked at each other and back at us. 

“I and your father need to talk. Boys, head to your rooms and we’ll call you out.” My mom told us. We nodded and headed upstairs. We got into the room and shut the door. Alex was already on his bed just staring at the floor. I walked over to him and sat down. 

“What are we going to do, Jack?” He asked me and looked at me. 

“I don't know.” I replied and shrugged my shoulders. “I like you too much for this to end.” I told him. 

“I like you too.” Alex smiled at me and place a quick kiss on my lips. “What do you think they are talking about?” he asked me and I shrugged again. 


About an hour later, my mom called both Alex and I out of our rooms to come back downstairs to the living room. We sat down in the places that we were before. “Okay, um…” my mom started. 

“Do you want me to talk to them?” Alex’s dad asked. 

“No, no, its okay. I can do it.” my mom said and paused. “Me and your father talked about this. We know that you guys probably tried stopping your feelings right?” Both I and Alex nodded. “So, what we have decided, well will let you boy continue this, relationship, but with rules.” Alex and I both smiled widely. “First, no sex. I know, this isn't a blood thing, which I why we did decide to let you boy carry on this relationship, but no sex.” she said. I nodded. 

“With that said, Jack,” Alex dad chimed in. “You will be getting your own room. If we catch anything, this relationship will be over, got it?” he asked us both sternly. 

“Yeah, we promise.” Alex and I both said at the same time. 

“Good. Now um, if a break up would occur,” his dad said trailing off. “Have you boys thought about what would happen?” He asked up. 

“Kind of.” I said and looked at Alex.

“We talked about it not letting it change things. We knew coming into this that is wasn't the best idea,” Alex continued talking. 

“No drama okay?” We both nodded. “Alex you will be going to college in a few months, have you guys talked about that as well?” he nodded. 

“We are going to try and make it work.” he told them. Our parents nodded. 

“This isn't going to be easy.” my mom said to Alex dad. She probably. didn't mean for me to hear it, but she was right, nothing was going to be easy about this. I was surprised that they even let us. it might have probably been because even if they said no, we could have still gone behind their backs like we have been doing. 


Six months later.

I was sitting on my bed in my ‘new’ room. It sucked having me and Alex split up, but it was understandable why. So far, mine and Alex relationship was good, and we were happy. He was packing and getting ready to leave for college. I really sucked watching him go. The whole thing made him so distant from me and even our parents. Alex came into my room early this morning. he was leaving at eight am since it was a really long way away. He looked really down. 

“Hey, what's wrong?” I asked him when he sat on my bed. He just sighed and looked at me. 

“I need to talk to you. Its important.” I nodded and scooted closer. “This is really, really hard for me to say, but…” he trailed off. My heart rate picked up and I was getting worried. 

“What is it?” I asked him with caution. 

“Jack,” he sighed. “I want to break up.” he choked out. I could hear the strain in his voice. 

“What?” I asked, feeling the wet tears swell in my eyes. 

“I don't think I can do this long distance thing and… I just don't think it can work.” he said to me and got up. “I'm so sorry, Jack.” He said and walked to the door.

“Wait.” I yelled to him. “Can you at least kiss me one last time?” I asked him.

“I don't think that's a good idea.” he mumbled and looked at me through his lashes. 

“Please?” I asked again. Alex sighed and and cupped my face. he brought his lips to mine and slotted them together. Giving me, probably, one of the best kisses I have ever had in my life, but it made it one of the worst too because it was filled with sadness. He pulled away and hugged me. 

“I'm so sorry, Jack.” he mumbled and kiss my head. I hugged his small frame and let him go. He walked out of the room and down the hall. The most simple break up I've ever head, and the most heartache I think I have ever felt at one time. 


It took me a couple months to get over him and if I was being honest, I still don't think I am. I thought about him all the time, and living in his house, only reminded me of him. It was haunting to me. We talked, I found out he started dating someone else and was going to bring him home for Thanksgiving. It hurt so fucking much, but I know it was a bad idea from the start. I truly love Alex, but maybe it was just brotherly love

Okay, let me explain. I don't like this ending, but the chapters that I originally did have planned, felt repetitive and I just didn't like them, so I kind of combined all of them into this one. I know its short and probably a boring ending, but I really hope that you all enjoyed the story. This ending was planned from the start anyway.
