7. Can I skip that?
"We're going to court tomorrow? Can I skip that? " Lip raises his brows: "Not really, E.T. " Ethan looks around: "Have you seen Pete? " Ian shakes his head: "Nah. Why? " Ethan shrugs, relief filling his body: "No reason. It's lights out in five, so. " Three minutes later Peter throws himself on his bunk. E.T doesn't ask. Neither does his brothers: "Ian, are you going to the Milkovich house tonight? " Ian looks at his shoes: "His dad came home. Caught me and M. " Ethan gives him a brotherly hug: "I'm sorry bro. How you holding up? " Ian shrugs: "Better than M, that's for damn sure. Also better than you. Did V fix your nose? " Ethan nods: "Yeah. Goodnight man. " They both get in their bunks and answer when their names are shouted.
