TJ walked through the front door holding a pizza for dinner. “Hey Dad.” He said setting the pizza down on the table. “Where is Mom?”
“Out,” He said from where he was sitting drinking his 3rd beer. TJ looked at him.
“Dad what’s going on? It’s Thursday we always have family dinner on Thursday.” Dad looked at him.
“Fine get your sister and I will call your mother.” He sighed getting up as the door knocked. He opened the door as Mom was putting her key in the lock. “Hey,” He whispered.
“Hey,” Mom whispered back.
“I’m sorry I yelled at you and Ryan. I was just mad.” He sighed looking down.
“I know. Come on its pizza Thursday.” She said taking Dad’s hand……….
TJ knocked on my door. “Ryan, the pizzas here.” He said. His brow knotted in confusion as he heard nothing in my room. “Ryan,” He said a little louder. Felix meowed causing TJ to try to open the
locked door. “Ry open the door.” He commanded. He sighed and pulled out a gift card from his wallet and slid it in the crack in the door causing it to open. “Ryan?” He called. Felix meowed from
where he was snuggled under my blankets. He saw my open window, causing his eyes to widen. He ran to the kitchen were Mom and Dad were putting plates out. “She’s gone.”
“What? TJ what do you mean?” Mom asked.
“Ryan got out of the window.” Dad looked at the driveway.
“She took her truck.” He said grabbing his cell phone. TJ grabbed his car keys. “TJ where are you going?” He asked dialing it.
“I’m going to deal with that douche bag.” He said storming out……….
Owen opened the door to look at a pissed TJ. “What are you doing here?” He asked. TJ punched him in the face sending him backwards.
“Were the hell is my sister?” He asked punching him again. Owen grabbed his fist.
“I don’t know where she is? Why would I? She is your problem now.” He smirked causing TJ to tackle him to the ground.
“Do you ever talk about her like that, ever.” He said punch him in the stomach causing him to lose his breath.
“I can talk about her anyway I want to. She is my girlfriend. Not yours.” He smirked as TJ punched him again causing his nose to bleed.
“Where is my sister?” He growled.
“I don’t know she stormed out of here about 3 hours ago. I haven’t seen or heard from her since.” He said. TJ punched him one more time before getting up and ran back to his car. He speeded home to
were Mom and Dad were in the kitchen. Dad was on the phone as Mom was folding and refolding a dish towel.
“Did you find her?” Mom asked jumping up. TJ shook his head.
“All I know is that she left the base about 3 hours ago. Nothing more.” Mom sat down and pushed head in her hands. “It will be okay Mom, we will find her.” TJ said putting a hand on his shoulder.
Mom put her hand on top of his.
“God I’m such an idiot. Why did I yell at her?” Dad said slapping himself.
“You were mad Dad, she’ll come home. I know it.” TJ sighed. “I know she will, I can feel it.” He kissed Mom’s head and grabbed 2 pieces of pizza and walked to his room. He picked up his phone and
dialed my cell phone………
I head was buried in the pillows when I heard my phone start to ring. I pulled my head from under the comfort of the pillows to grab it.
TJ* Were the hell are you?
Me* I was asleep.
TJ* Asleep were, because it isn’t home.
Me*I’m in a nice bed, very comfy
TJ* Please tell me where you are
Me* I can’t TJ, I’m sorry, I just can’t.
TJ*Why? I want you home Ryan. I want to know where you are. I want you to be safe; I want you to feel safe. Please just tell me where you are.
Me* I’m in a motel about an hour and half away
TJ* Why? I coming to get you.
Me* No, no TJ I want to be alone. I want to be away from every one.
TJ* I don’t like you being away. Please Ry.
Me* NO TJ
TJ* Please Ryan
Me* Sorry, but no Thomas
TJ*Ryan this isn’t good for you
Me* TJ I’m fine. I’m comfy, and I am happy. This bed is perfect.

TJ*I won’t tell them. I promise.
Me* Then why do you want to know?
TJ* Because I want to make sure your safe and okay.
Me* So if I told you, you would come and stay with me.
TJ* Yes that’s all I ask.
Me* You promise?
TJ* Cross my heart
I sighed and gave him the directions to the motel.
Me* Are you going to come now?
TJ*Yes. I should be there in about 2 hours.
Me* Okay, see you soon.
TJ* Love you Sis
Me*Love you too
I hung up my phone and snuggled back in the bed. Maybe I do miss my brother. Maybe it will be good to talk to him. My phone rang in my hand.
Owen* Hey Baby.
Me* Screw off.
Owen* Baby I rather screw you
Me* I hate you, leave me alone.
Owen* That I can’t do. I love you too much
Me*You don’t love me.
Owen* I do love you, more than anything
Me* Stop lying.
Owen* I’m not lying. I love you. I love you so much you piss me off sometime. I don’t like to hit you.
Me* That is bullshit Owen
Owen* It is not. It’s true.
Me* Shut up your just a douche bag that lost his punching bag
Me* Owen just leave me the hell alone.
I hung up my phone and crawled back under my pillows closing my eyes……
