I drove home with bags of food, lucky the supermarket didn't close until an hour later, I made it just in time to buy food for another week. I'm just dead tired, been working long hours and visiting Trent making sure he's okay. I sighed, I wish I've done something different with my life, didn't even finish university but even if I did who would hire someone like me? I'm a stripper for goodness sake, the word goes around about me and soon enough people will find out who I really am.

I arrive at my run down apartment, it's all I could afford but hell as long as I can buy food and have a roof over my head I'm thankful for what I could get. I carried the bags towards my door, I opened it until the smell of weed filled the air. I couldn't even breathe properly, I drop the bags and stomp towards the living room. I see my dumb ass brother and a some business men, I froze as they looked at me. Edward looked scared, what did he do now?

"Umm .. hi but who are you?" I asked

"So this is your brother Edward" one sneered. I flinch, I got a bad vibe from these guys.

"I already gave you the money what more do you want?" he asked.


"Sorry did Edward do something?" I asked

"Oh you didn't tell him, what a bad brother that he doesn't realize you've been stealing his money all this time" another said.

"What!" I yelled


"Listen Seb I had to so no harm done" he replied. The three men laughed, they find this amusing because I don't.

"How much?" I asked the man in the middle. He's the only one who hadn't spoken but I regret it instantly because I hadn't realize he's their boss.


"$50,000" he replied

"How could you, for all I've done for you and you stole my money. That was from mom and dad, it suppose to be use in important situations!" I yelled

"This is important Seb, stop being stubborn and it's my money as well" he replied. I laughed.

"Oh Edward last time I checked all the money went to me and this isn't important, I should of use that f*cking $50,000 for you to go to rehab" I replied

"Enough!" the man in the middle yelled

"Don't give a sh*t what you think twink and don't give a flying f*ck whether he stole your money because now it's mine. Edward the reason why I ain't leaving is because I found out you stole $30,000 worth of drugs from me, you f*cker think you can mess with me" he said

"It wasn't me Nathan I swear" Edward replied. Suddenly Nathan stood and punch Edward in the face, I squealed in surprise.

"Beat him" Nathan ordered.

"No! stop this right now!" I yelled

"Do not tell me what to do!" Nathan replied. I shiver in fear until he slap my face, I cried in pain as I drop to the floor, Nathan pinned me down as I watch them beat my brother.

"I have the money just please leave him alone" I cried.

"Stop" Nathan ordered. I heard Edward groan in pain, I sighed in relief.

"Write the check" he said. My shaky hands write the amount then my signature, I'm surprise I can write perfectly considering how shaky my hands become. Nathan shoved me down as he ordered his men to leave, Nathan and his men left my apartment.

"Seb talk to me" said Edward. I remain silent helping him up, I grab the first aid kit and cleaned his wounds.

"Your eye is swollen so put some ice on it and hopefully it'll go down in two days" I said

"Seb I'm sorry" he started

"How long?" I asked

"Three months" he replied

"So you've been stealing money from me, do you have an idea how much I'm struggling to pay off everything. I don't want to use that money, how could I when I don't deserve it. I already blame myself for their death, I was planning to use that money to help you Edward. Stop giving me false hope but now all the money is gone, we have nothing left" I said

"I understand that but I don't need rehab" he said

"Really? I'm slowly watching my brother killing himself, you're all I got Edward and here I am helpless watching you slowly dying because of those f*cking drugs you take. I can't do this anymore, how can I help someone who doesn't want to be helped" I said

"It's my life so stop getting involved" he replied. I laughed, is that all he has to say.

"You make me involved Edward, you don't need to stay here but admit it you have no where to go. I help you because I love you and when you say that hurts me, I-I can't do this anymore. Pack your sh*t and get out" I replied

"W-What?" he gasped

"You heard me, get out. This is my house, I pay for food and I pay the damn bill you do nothing to help. I've had enough of your ways and I heard to hear from those thugs that you are stealing from me" I said

"You b*tch!" he yelled. Suddenly something within me snapped, I stalk towards his bedroom and slam the door open, already I've found small bags on his desk. I've grab a bag and pulled his clothes out and filled it soon I'm walking out of the front door and threw his bag outside.

"How could you throw my drugs away!" he yelled

"GET OUT!" I roared.

"Fine! I don't need you and never did you're just a mistake and a murderer" he replied. I slam the door shut and slowly slide down, I let out a loud sob because I knew he was right, I am a murderer because of me, my parents died.
