There was a Tall dark haired boy stood at the door, He definatley had some resembulence to joe, I looked up at joe, his face was blank, he was just staring at the stranger in the door way.
Kevin: H-hey joe..
kevin? who is kevin?
Nick: who is it joe? *i wispered, joe didnt take his eyes of "kevin", im sure i even saw him glare*
Joe: Oh he's my brother, the one who abandened me and left me with my drunken basterd of a father.
Kevin: joe.. you know i didnt abanden you! i just couldnt live in a house with that idiot anymore..
Joe: what so you just left your baby brother? kevin do you have any idea how many time's he fuckin beats me in a week!?
Kevin's face was sad, almost as if he was in pain. I could see where joe was coming from, but.. i could sense that kevin cared for joe very much.
Kevin: im so sorry..
Joe shook his head, i could tell he was getting upset again. His face scrunched up and then he burst in to tears.
Joe: what the hell did you come back kevin?! What you came to gloat about your new life, see what ive been doing to myself? *his crys turned to sobs as he lifted his arms up to show kevin the bandages*
Kevin: No, no.. joe.. i came because you need someone to take care of you, your only 17 you cant live like this.. look, i know what i did was stupid, i should have never left you by yourself.. but im back now, i met some one called danielle (tehe ^.^) and we bought a house here.. i want you to live with us..
Joe: I dont know.. dad will kill me if i leave..
Kevin: dad wont care, he will just carry on his life.. drinking, doing girls, whatever..
Joe thought for a little while,
Kevin: and i bet your dad wouldnt let your.. um friend.. stay over and stuff..
Kevin: your friend could stay over when ever.. and we wouldnt judge you about your sexuality like dad does.
Joe: i'll think about it ok?
kevin nodded and smiled, he walked towards us and gave joe a hug.
Kevin: i missed you
Joe: yeh, yeh.. i missed you to..
Kevin: and what is your name?
Nick: im nick.. *he smiled at me and shook my hand*
Kevin: well it's nice to meet you nick..
I smiled, joe grabbed my hand and began tracing circles on it.
Kevin: how bad are.. the beatings?
Joe flinched alittle, he didnt look up he just continued to play with my hands.
Joe: some time's are worse than others, ive definatley learned not to piss him of to much, alot of the time i just close my eyes and wait till he stops.
Kevin: im so sorry joe.. really..
Joe: i know.
For about an hour, kevin and joe talked about random things. Joe definatley got more comfatable around him, he wasnt as tense he even laughed a few times.
It made me happy to see him laugh..
