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 nods, glad Susan at least understands that much.

"I just, want to help. If I can."

Lauren watches Susan, trying to gain some kind of understanding by looking at him, but comes up with nothing. He know Susan had complained about everything changing the night before was that what he'd meant?

"What do you mean?"

Lauren looks surprised, and confused by that response.

"How is it your fault?"
mylastchance: (🍃 Cool)

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-28 04:33 am (UTC)(link)
"You can't help it." he starts, not sure how Susan can blame himself for doing something he never consciously did.
mylastchance: (🍃 Tempestous)

"Susan..." Lauren starts. He shifts, moving from his side of the table to sit on the bench next to his brother instead. He wraps an arm around his brother's shoulders.

"Susan it is not your fault I'm here, I wanted to be here so I could be with you."

"I chose to stay because I love you." he starts, hoping Susan can understand. "So isn't it technically my fault for keeping you around in the first place?"
mylastchance: (☀️ Warm)

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-28 04:37 am (UTC)(link)
"I would never want to."

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-28 04:38 am (UTC)(link)
"We will go home. We just have to finish here first."
mylastchance: (☁ 049)

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-28 04:39 am (UTC)(link)
He hesitates, but eventually responds.

"Susan, people get hurt back home too."

"You don't know that."
mylastchance: (⚡ Thunderstorms)

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-28 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
Lauren takes a breath and lets it go.

"Susan, is it really the people getting hurt that's upset you?"
mylastchance: (☔ Storm Warning)

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-28 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
He looks away, before he shrugs.

"I don't know. Some pretty bad stuff happened back there."

And he still hadn't seen Susan like this. Maybe he just hadn't noticed.

He nods looking away, he never really expected to have this kind of a conversation with Susan. Suddenly it hits him that Susan is growing up. If only he'd been smarter, he'd have been with Susan during the fight. Maybe he could have stopped his brother from feeling this way.

"Susan, sometimes bad things happen, and we just have to deal with the aftermath the best we can."
