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.

Lauren nods, before settling down on the bed to listen. He thinks for a second, trying to put his words together.

"Why are you so mad?"

He expects Susan to say more, but he doesn't. He moves to take Susan's hand in his.

"But I'll be okay."

"Are you mad at me?" he asks, a bit worried and a bit confused.

He nods, finally understanding it. That's why he'd attacked the Ringmaster, because he blamed her for his injury.

"I know things are different, but that doesn't mean they're bad."

"I know it's not easy. I'm sorry." This wasn't the first time his world flipped on him, but they'd both come through okay then, and they would now too.

"But I know we can do it."

"It's okay if you don't believe me..." He says, after Susan remains silent. "Just... talk to me, if you get angry."

He doesn't want Susan feeling like he has to do things on his own.

"Trying is good enough." he answers with a smile. "Thank you."

"Why?" he asks, looking perplexed.

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-28 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
"I only get mad because you won't talk to me."

"Do I?" He wants to believe Susan isn't right, but he knows he can't really remember every time he's ever gotten mad.
