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 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."

"I'm glad you want to help... But it's important to know your limitations."

He watches his brother, wishing he knew what the other half-elf was thinking, but though he tries to reach for an answer his thoughts leave him empty handed.

"I know you tried your best to help. It's not your fault things went bad."

"Susan..." he shifts, looking at his brother from where he's seated, before wrapping his arms around Susan as best he can.

"I love you. Thank you for trying to help me."

"You fought my... Attacker. You protected me while I was unconscious. I would never have made it this far without you."

He pulls back, look at Susan in concern and confusion.

"How could you have stopped it? You had no way of knowing what would happen."

"Susan, you couldn't have. There was nothing you could do."

"Oh Susan..." he murmurs, before holding his brother closer again. "What can I do to convince you."

He just lets his brother cry against him as he holds him close. Regret isn't an easy thing to deal with, and he's not sure Susan's ever had to deal with it before.

"I love you."
