private (between Starfox and silverroses2009)
« on: June 05, 2009, 09:56:44 PM »
It had been almost a year since their sister's death. A year of pain and fighting. Now the twins weren't as close as they used to be and it hurt her to see him like this. The year of counseling and tears did nothing for him. Right now she was in the kitchen cooking for the two knowing he would not come down. At least maybe he would eating something tonight. Every night she cooked something good and left it by his door. Sometimes there was food gone and most times he did not touch anything. She had just started cooking their dinner at this time and she was already tired.

While she was cooking dinner she suddenly noticed the sound of music. It was faint, but audible, and coming through the open window. There was no other house that close, so the music was either coming from someone in the garden... or from the room of her brother.

But Craig had been a fan of hip hop and pop, not this ... what was it anyway? Some sort of choral?

The music filtered the house and she knew it was not his music. Placing the dishes down she went out to see who or what was making that sound. Did he have a change of heart and was changing his music?

No one was outside in the garden, and she had no trouble spotting the open window of his room - he was listening to this music. Where did he get it? It sounded like some of the music she heard once in that documentary about old european chruches or something, which she had once listened to during a presentation at school, but something was off.

She noticed that it was from upstairs and walked upstairs wondering what was going on. A few knocks could be heard on the door a few moments later wanting to know why this was happening. Sighing, she hoped that he would at least talk to her this time.

She heard what sounded like a muffled curse, and the music was turned off. Then the door opened, and her twin brother Craig stared at her. He looked like he had just gotten out of bed - at this time of the day? and hadn't slept for too long. He smelled like he had not showered today, or yesterday, either.

"What do you want?"

When he came out she took a step away from him just in case. He would probably not hurt her but she did not know his mind state. "I heard different music is all. You need to eat something I am making your favorite." She whispered slowly looking up to his eyes wondering what his reaction would be.

He snorted. "Why do you think you know what my favorite is? Huh? What did you cook anyway?" He sounded as aggressive as in the past, but there was also a bit of confusion behind the attitude.

"I know because your my twin brother. Macaroni and cheese." She said knowing their parents used to make it and it was his favorite food a while ago. She kept her distance this time not wanting to anger him.

For a moment it looked as if he was about to slam the door in her face, but then he reconsidered, and walked past her, down to the kitchen. When he saw that dinner was not yet ready he cursed. Nothing muffled there, a plain four letter word.

"I was in the process of beginning it when I heard some music. I'll get started on it." She didn't mean to give him false hopes and went into the kitchen starting to cook right in front of him.

Craig's answer was so slurred it almost sounded like a growl, and her twin brother walked into the living room, kicking the magazines on the coffe table down to the floor so he could plant his feet on it, then grabbed the remote and started jumping through channels, commenting - usually with an expletive - each channel before switching to another. After 5 minutes he shouted "Have you finished dinner already, or did you mess it up again?"

Quickly she moved out of the way so he could get past her. Five minutes was not long enough to make something. "I am working on it give me some time." She had already burned her hand a few moments ago trying to get the dinner ready for him. Second degree and it hurt quite a bit. Another 10 minutes or so later she was done.

Craig ate silently, and avoided looking at her. From up close he looked paler than she had noticed before. His hair was unkempt, and too long, and his face was covered by a thin beard - he mustn't have shaved for a week or so. Her twin brother ate the whole plate, and went for seconds and thirds, so that was one thing.

At least he was eating something. After the plate was handed to him she ran her arm under cold water for the burn. Usually if someone got hurt the other would feel it and she hoped he would not feel it and get mad. Sighing she sat in the kitchen and picked at the food on her plate.

Craig snarled "Clumsy idiot, when will you learn?" at her, but did not really seem to expect an answer. Whe he saw her picking at the food he looked suspiciously at his plate "Is something wrong with the food, or why are you picking at it, huh?"

When she heard his remark about the burn a tear fell from her eye. Why was he being like this? Normally he would be kind and helpful when she was hurt but not now. "Why do you care?" She snapped at him not wanting him to pesture her right now.

"Because I am eating it too." Craig glared at her. "So, why aren't you eating?" There was no concern in his question, instead there was suspicion and the hint of accusation.

She took a bite and ate it proving she did nothing to it. "Never mind." There was so much she wanted to say and talk about but how could she?

Craig snorted and finished his plate. Without bothering to place it in the dishwasher he stood up and vanished into his room.

When he left she could not help it the tears came down her cheeks. She had another mouthful and that made her sick.

Soon afterwards the odd music is audible again, sporadically only though - she can almost feel the missing parts.

(Do you mind if she's pregnant?) She put her food in the garbage along with whatever he left on his plate then started washing the dishes.

(Your decision.) The doorbell rang. Another delivery for him - boks it seemed. Expensive books, not Amazon discount ware.

She had been pregnant about two months and barely showing but did not want to tell her brother. Placing a hand on her belly she walked over to the door to answer it.
