9. Vengeful Homecoming

Flaky was so happy when everything for the party was finished. And the best part was that Lifty was actually helping! Even Giggles was impressed, "I guess he isn't all that bad", and then Flaky realized she forgot the cake. The cake! How could she forget the cake?! So with Giggles in tow, she rushed down to the bakery to grab it. But when she came back, she was shocked at what she saw.

Everything destroyed. It was all gone.

And Lifty was right in the middle of it, a baseball bat at his feet.

"L-Lifty, what have you done. . .", she whispered, her voice a mixture of anger, sadness, and uncertainty.

"It....it wasn't me. I swear, I didn't do this. . ." said Lifty, he looked at Flaky, she wouldn't meet his gaze, "You believe me, right?"

"I want, but I can't. I mean who e-else would have done... .all this" Flaky's voice was laced with sadness as she spoke

She looked down, not speaking anymore. She had nothing else to say

Giggles did though, as she was beyond angry, "WELL, THEN WHO THE HELL DID ALL THIS, HUH?! WE LEFT YOU HERE AND YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE HERE, SO WHO COULD DO THIS BESIDES YOU?!"

"It was Shifty, he hates that I have a better life without him. He said he was gonna destroy everything I cared about and. . . .he did" Lifty sighed, he looked at Flaky who was unnaturally quiet despite what was happening. He reached out to touch her shoulder, "Flaky-"

"Don't touch me." 

Lifty recoiled his hand back, nervous by his friend's anger. Flaky was shaking, trying her hardest to not cry and scream.

It didn't work.

"I TRUSTED YOU, I TOOK YOU IN. I-I THOUGHT YOU COULD BE GOOD. BUT THEN YOU DO THIS! LIFTY, GET OUT. G-Get out a-and never come b-back", Flaky fell to her knees sobbing, her throat sore and her heart broken.

"Get out and never come back. . ."

Lifty felt like he had just been punched in the stomach, Flaky had said the same words his brother had said when he kicked him out, but it hurt a million times more when she said. He opened his mouth again, to say he didn't do it, that he would never do something like this, but no words came out. He just looked down and walked away.

Lifty was angry and sad. And there was only one person to blame.

Shifty.

He growled in anger, "I'm coming home, brother."

It took him only an hour to get back to his old house. He slammed his fist against the door. His brother opened the door, face forming into a grin seeing his brother at the door, "Well, look who came crawling back-AHH!". Shifty's taunt was interrupted by Lifty grabbing him and throw him out on onto the house's front lawn.

Lifty still had the baseball bat as he raised it over his head and cracking it on his brother's head twice in rapid succession. He rolled his brother over and repeatedly slammed his fists into his sibling's nose screaming, "You ruined everything, you selfish bastard, I'm gonna make you pay!". 

Blow after blow struck as Shifty was dazed and bloodied,.Lifty finally stopped after a while and whispered, "You're lucky I'm not killing you. Now. Get inside. I'm in charge now, brother". He walked into the house, leaving his brother lay on the grass covered in blood.

Vengeance was served.

The story's coming to a close. Only a few chapters left.

 

Also realized I forgot to add a chapter. It's "Best Frenemies" (Chapter 3), so go read that for the story to make a bit more sense!

 

Love you guys!
