Last Chances (Shiri & silverroses2009)
« on: April 28, 2009, 06:21:44 PM »
"Is there nothing else," asked an elder female voice, sounding slightly distraught. Here cracked as if she had been sobbing just awhile ago.

Silence.

"Alright," she answered to the air, "I'll make an appointment then." Her tone though cracked, came to Evan's ears in whispers. She was trying to keep him unaware again.

He was sick, not deaf. "Tcht, figures," he groaned from his bedroom, placing one hand on his forehead. 'I'm just having another spell,' he thought silently, 'why does Mom worry so much?'

He wasn't exactly sure what had happened. He was walking out of the kitchen when the blackness swallowed him up. 'I'm anemic, it's bound to happen...' He reached over to his bed lamp and flicked it on, squinting in the new light.

There was an awkward silence as his mother, from the next room, glanced at his light before giving statements for the appointment. She shouldered the cordless and pulled his door until it was almost closed.

Mary knew there was something wrong with her brother but he never told her what. Did he just not know or not want to bother her with his problems. She was in her room wanting to hear what happened but did not go over to his room. The fights they had were really getting to her. Aren't twins supposed to be closer then close? She was laying on her bed wanting to so bad to be with her twin and help him but she couldn't. The fights still lingered over her head.

Evan sat up, feeling a little dizzy and weak but otherwise okay. He rubbed at the bridge of his nose with his fingers, trying to get enough nerve to move from his room. He sighed and rose to his feet. He swung the door open but paused at his mother's glare. "I'm really okay, it's nothing," he persuaded. "This has happened before."

"Evan!" his mother replied, clipped and loud as if the volume would drive him back. The phone grasped in her hand appeared to be hung up. "You need rest right now! I have an appointment set up for you in two days and the nice nurse there recommends that you don't stress yourself until then." Her voice was still cracking in odd places. "And I'm calling the school in the morning. You aren't going until the doctor sees you."

'I hate this,' he backed up, retreating to his room's sanctuary. His mother was too worried to talk reasonably. He closed his door and grabbed a pillow, punching it into submission. 'What the hell is wrong with me?' he thought bitterly. He bit the pillow to keep from screaming and yelling his frustration.

Mary wanted to go see her brother but didn't because what if they were going to have a fight again? Hearing those words she knew something was bad but because they weren't talking she did not know how bad he was. A few moments later she got up and slowly walked to his room. Knocking three times on his door she just wanted to spend some time with him for a bit. Not fight with him just spend some time.

"What?" he asked, throwing his pillow to the headboard. 'Is it Mom trying to act all comforting now?' He anger was now mainly just disgust at himself and the situation. "Er...you can come in...," he said in a nicer tone.

"No it's just me." She asked opening the door. Before the fights start they shared the same room but now things were so different. She expected him to make her leave and she only took a few steps into the room and stopped in her tracks.

He let his breath out in relief, "Oh...Mary..." He ducked his head in shame. "I'm sorry..." He wasn't entirely sure what for but it felt like the right thing to say. He fluffed his short hair with a hand in a nervous gesture.

That was something she never heard from him before for a very long time. Looking at him she saw he was really sick and she could almost feel it. "Sorry for what?" She asked taking a step toward him.

He looked up at her, eyes pleading. "For being sick like this..." Even though they had a bumpy relationship he had prided himself that he could be the brother. The word had made him feel strong and like he was worth something. Now since the spells started, he had been feeling weaker and weaker and started to doubt himself. "It's probably a disappointment..." 'God, I'm pathetic...'

This was something she had not seen for a long time. Him being nice and in a different mood today. "This is not your fault." She asked going over to his bed and sitting down beside it. She wanted to hug him but did not in case he would not like that for some reason.

"How do you know that?" he snapped, not quite meaning to. "People get sick because they don't take care of themselves, right?" He was afraid of whatever was causing him to blackout. It was something he couldn't control or comprehend and it scared him.

Mary winced when he snapped at her and debated whether to leave the room or not. "You can't say that. People get sick even if they are careful." She whispered moving a foot away from him to feel more comfortable.

"Mom wants me to go in...if I do are you coming?" He looked up at her with watery eyes, not tears so much as flood of emotion. If he was going to be cooped up in a hospital he didn't want to be alone. It would be too boring to bare.

She did not move closer but noticed the look on his face. "I guess." She was not sure about it since she was trying to be nice and he just snapped at her.

He looked hurt by this, his complexion growing paler. His mind wandered to a darker place with a bleaker outcome. "I suppose that's the most I'll ever get from you." His tone was numb as if he was far from the situation and not involved. Then the old fire came back, "Would you ditch my funeral too?"

She glanced back up at him. "Of course I'll come with you to the hospital. What do you expect  these last few years all we have been doing is fighting." She wanted to be there for him but it was so hard. She did not want to think about him dieing well not now at least.

Evan sighed, letting out his breath slowly. "Fighting is what we do best, I think." He trailed off, seeing Mary's hurt. "Do you...uh...think it's contagious?" All he needed was to bring whatever he had to the rest of his family.

"Wouldn't we have gotten it already?" She asked seeing how he suddenly changed probably because he felt she was hurt. Twin telepathy. They always had it.

"I guess that's true," he agreed. It was so odd to think that not long ago he was just as well as his sister. He fiddled with the fabric of his clothes, not knowing what to talk about now. 'God everything about me is nerves right now...' Grasping for anything to talk about, he fell back on school. "I take it you have your homework done for the night?"

Why would he be talking about school work at this hour? Sighing she looked at him. "Not all of it I have been to worried about you. You said you have blackouts?" She asked putting a hand on his knee to try and comfort him.

'So much for not talking about it,' he reflected. "Yeah, on moment I'm fine and then there's black and I wake up later...then I feel weak." He looked at the hand on his knee, shocked that she was actually touching him.

"Sorry I don't know what your going through. You never told me." She whispered seeing him watch her hand and quickly moved her hand away when he did. It felt weird sitting in the same room for a few minutes without starting a fight.

He gave her a small glare when the hand moved away. "Yeah..." Before it wasn't so bad, he just thought it was a temporary thing that would go away but it never did. "It's not the best thing in the world to have to go through...I never know when it's going to happen...It's very sudden."

When he glared at her hand it made her think that he did not want her to move it but she did not put it back on his knee. "But your going to the doctor right?" She asked still looking at him but not moving any closer.

"In a couple days. Mom was just talking to them on the phone. She's as jumpy as ever..." Honestly he wanted to be anywhere else but in this house, but it was way too late at night to even think about a walk. "Sounds like I'm not going to school tomorrow," he commented dryly, not pleased to be separated from his friends.
