The Seven Deadly Simpson Brothers

Chapter 39 ~ War

A week had passed and everything seemed to be getting better. Christmas was coming and Hayley and I were feeling the buzz. I wondered how it would be this year, usually I spent Christmas with Hayley, but things had changed for the both of us recently.

Eli was basically completely healed and Walter and Landon were well on their way.

Walter had continued coming to school so I wouldn't be alone, even though I had objected and Hayley had started going out with Daniel Forest.

Which led me on to Landon and his love. He really did seem to have settled down and I could tell he was in love by the way he smiled at his phone when she was calling and the spring in his step when he went out to see her. Whoever the girl was, she sure was lucky.

The triplets as usual were up to no good, and lately had started going out late. They claimed they were keeping up their reputation, but no body seemed to bother.

Phoenix....well Phoenix and I were, or could have been considered as friends. It felt as if a weight had been lifted and there was no more tension between us anymore. We didn't really talk, but it was much more comfortable and I liked it.

But then everything started to go downhill. I was finishing washing up one evening when the triplets came home and there seemed to be distress in the air. I walked out to see what was going on.

Gomez and Giovanni were in the living room, and the rest of the older brothers were surrounding them. They looked confused, and Gomez and Giovanni looked upset.

"What's going on?" I asked joining them all.

Gomez started to explain, but he was talking so fast no body understood.

"Slow down," Landon said putting an arm on Gomez's shoulder.

Gomez took a deep breath and started again. "They have Severn, I..we didn't know he was missing til halfway back!"

I hadn't even noticed Severn was gone, but I did now and I didn't need to ask to know who 'they' were.

Landon shut both his eyes and muttered something under his breath. Eli stood stock still staring at Gomez and Phoenix shook his had angrily.

Walter stepped forwards bewildered, "What do you mean they have Severn?"

"They have Severn! They have our youngest brother! How hard is it to understand?" Giovanni burst out.

Walter swore and bit his fist.

"What did they do to him?" Eli asked, his frame still frigid.

"I don't know! We didn't realise he wasn't there...we were running...and he slowed down...it was dark...I.. they caught him dammit!" Gomez said in distress.

"You're meant to look after him Gomez!" Phoenix yelled. "You're the oldest, and besides we all look out for each other!"

"I didn't know!" Gomez shouted back.

Giovanni put an arm around him, calming Gomez down. "We need to go back and get him before he gets hurt."

"It doesn't make sense," Eli said still shaking his head. "Everything was calming down...Why would they?"
