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.

He holds back his own frustration. He promised Susan he would try not to get angry and he meant it. Even if Susan can't hold up his end of the deal, Lauren still wanted to follow through. He takes a breath, forcing himself to stay calm.

"You don't have to, but I'd like it if you would."

There really isn't anyway he can make Susan tell him why he's so upset. He wants to stay, he wants to help his brother if there's something wrong, but he couldn't really do anything if Susan didn't want him to forest.

"Fine." So he turns to leave the room, closing the door behind him.

Surprise! Lauren was leaning against the door the whole time, so when Susan opens it he falls back and nearly knocks Susan over.

And then he stumbles the other way as he's pushed.

"Hey!" he says, finally starting to get upset as he turns around to face his brother. "You just got back and now you want to leave?"

He stumbles back again, and if the vampire part of him was mad before now it's absolutely raging. Lauren sneers, his fangs clearly visible as he steps forward and pushes Susan hard.

Lauren is surprised too. He hadn't meant to do that, he'd just reacted with new instincts he didn't understand. He's still as Susan get's up from surprised, and when Susan pushes him again he feels suddenly overwhelmed.

"Stop!" he shouts, this time grabbing his brother's arms instead of shoving him away. "Just, stop!"

Lauren flinches, expecting to be knocked down by the spell, but then nothing happens. He looks around, feeling confused and his grip on Susan loosens.
mylastchance: (🍃 Cool)

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-29 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
"Susan?" he's beyond confused. Why didn't it work? Susan has been casting mage hand since he was old enough to talk.

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-29 02:28 am (UTC)(link)
"Susan..." he says now in sadness rather than confusion. As the hand keeps failing to appear a strange sort of anxiety starts to weigh him down

"What happened?"

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-29 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
It doesn't matter that he's pulled away, because Lauren immediately steps forward to wrap his arms around his brother in a hug.

Lauren just keeps holding him, rubbing his back as he starts to cry.

"I'm sorry Susie."

He holds him for a while, before he leads them both over to the bed. He wishes he knew what to say or do to help, but he has a feeling the only thing that will help is time. He knows the feeling of suddenly loosing a part of yourself. He'd experienced it himself only a few days ago.

"How do you feel?" he asks, voice quiet after a long moment of shared silence between them.
