dumb sad boys

Who: Lauren and Susan
What: dumb brothers being sad - continued from here OKAY NOW IT'S ACTUALLY A CATCH-ALL LAUREN+SUSAN POST FOR PRE-ALOLA JUNK
When: Day 68 at night a variety, starting with night of day 68
Where: their trailer

Although he eventually came out of the bathroom that first night, Susan still didn't talk to Lauren. Instead he avoided his brother as best he could, falling asleep curled up with Fluff (and Stanley, if she let him) on the bed.

The next day he went out, even though Lauren had told him not to; he didn't know a lot about vampires, and even though he felt bad doing it (especially when he was still worried about Lauren), he was pretty sure they couldn't go out in the sun, so it was an easy way to not have to talk to him. He didn't want another argument, not any more - not that he knew what else to do, not when he was feeling pretty bad now, but that didn't matter. He just didn't want Lauren to yell at him and tell him he's wrong.

By that night, though, he still wasn't feeling any better - and even though he still didn't want to really talk to his brother, he still missed him and wanted to be with him.

Once it was late, and he was sure Lauren would be asleep, Susan quietly left the sofa where he'd been originally planning on sleeping, instead slipping into the room with his brother. From there he quietly made his way to the bed, climbing under the covers while being as careful as he could to not wake him.

It works, for the moment at least. Lauren doesn't wake up as Susan slips in under the covers. Even if he does, it's only to move closer to his brother, glad to be sleeping next to him even if his conscious mind isn't aware of it. It's not until the early morning hours that he wakes up and realizes that Susan is in bed with him. It's confusing at first, and strange, but he doesn't move to wake Susan up yet. He didn't want another argument, he just kind of wanted to enjoy being with his brother for a little bit. He watches Susan sleep, brushing some of his brothers messy hair out of his face.

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-28 03:50 am (UTC)(link)
He feels sad, watching Susan sleep, and he's surprised when he realizes it. It's hard for him, most of the time, to recognize his feelings, but right now there is no confusing what this is. He's sad, because he hasn't spoken to his brother in two days. He can't remember the last time he hadn't spoken to him for that long, but now everything felt so messed up. He gently shifts, putting a hand on Susan's shoulder to try and get him to wake.

He watches his brother, not really surprised at how long it takes him to finally stir. Susan's eyes blearily open, and he suddenly feels nervous, though he isn't sure why. He hold's Susan's gaze, though he wants to look away.

"...I'm sorry."

It was the next day when Lauren noticed that Susan's mood hadn't seemed to improve any. Lauren assumed it was just because, as Susan had said, everything was still going to change. Still, as the day went on and Susan's mood didn't seem to improve he grew worried.

"Hey." he said, sitting down at the table with his brother. "Is everything alright?"

Lauren shrugs, not sure if he should keep trying to get a different answer or not.

"You just seem... Upset."

When he hears the shouting he becomes concerned. He glances outside, but doesn't see anything unusual. Then Susan comes in and slams the trailer door and he nearly jumps.

"Susan?" he calls from the other side of the trailer, before following after his brother. "What happened?"

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-29 01:28 am (UTC)(link)
He glances at Fluff as she runs off to head, but doesn't stop chasing after Susan. Finally he stops when he gets to the bedroom, but his kick to the base of their bed and the way he shouts show very clearly that something is wrong. The beast inside of him is already snarling in annoyance at having to deal with Susan's contrary remarks, but he's gotten much better at ignoring it's influence as of late.

"Susan, please tell me what happened."

Lauren hadn't even gotten up to leave yet and already he was being hold in place. He really couldn't understand Susan's reaction.

Day 75

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-31 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
It's maybe a few hours after his desperate plea for help that he begins to act on the other's advice. It was strange, before he'd felt desperate and helpless. Now, he had a feeling like maybe there really was something he could do. It felt ridiculous. Susan hadn't even done anything since that day he'd attacked the Ringmaster, Lauren knew any outsider looking in wouldn't understand his concern. At the same time, that his young brother who had always been so cheerful and positive would attack someone and speak with such vehemence... He couldn't help his concern.

Though Susan may have been without magic at the moment, he was normally very powerful. Susan also wasn't accustomed to losing. His younger brother had the careless optimism of a child, because he was a child. Lauren knew Susan wouldn't take his concerns seriously, he never did. That still wasn't any reason not to try. If things were as dire as they felt, and he believed they were, then he had to do everything he could to stop Susan from hurting anyone else or himself. When Susan comes back to the trailer, he knew he had to talk to him then, or else he might loose his nerve.

"Susan, we need to talk."
mylastchance: (☔ Light Showers)

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-31 12:52 am (UTC)(link)
Okay. He could totally do this. He just wanted to be honest, and express himself directly. It was hard for him, not because he wanted to be indirect, not at the exact moment at least, but because it was so hard for him to accurately communicate his own thoughts and feelings. He could do this, he just had to focus.

"I'm... Worried about you... More than usual."

He doesn't say anything. He's not even looking in Susan's direction.

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-04-01 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
He doesn't know how to answer that. Part of him doesn't even want to answer, just to be spiteful. The other part of him is too sick of all this to be mean again. He knows he'll be ashamed of himself when all is said and done, but for know the frustration he'd felt was still too recent for him to admit it.

"... Probably not."
