Back to Timothy's POV
It was something wasn't it? It's been a conflict that tore people's hearts into tiny fragments since the beginning of us all. But what was forbidden about this? That we were two boys? That we'd be damned to spend eons in hell for loving another human being? What a sin that was.
See, it wasn't forbidden, it didn't feel forbidden.
It only seemed to appear that way because of the way everybody else saw it. I was always someone who viewed things different, shouldn't I just hope everyone else would do the same?
"What did you think of him?" I asked Colette when we got home, I was thankful our parents still weren't back yet.
"He's nice," she said. She had that look on her face that she got when she was skeptical.
"And?" I kinda hoped for something more.
She just shrugged.
"Do you think I should.." I stopped mid-sentence. Where was I going with this? "What's wrong Letty?" I asked when I noticed the look in her eyes, and the way she was looking down at her hands in distress, that was something I did not her.
"Timothy..you didn't tell Eli about dad did you?"
"Of course not! W-why would I even?"
"Because he would tell somebody and everything would just..." She moved her hands around as if she was at a loss for words, but I understood what she meant.
"And what would they do, Letty? If he told somebody? Throw a man in prison for yelling at his kids too much? Because that's all they'll see." I said, suddenly angry. I wasn't even sitting on the couch anymore, I got up in pure astonishment. Colette and I tried to ignore the subject of our father as much as we could.
"You could always tell them about-"
"No! No, Colette!" I interrupted. "I want him gone as much as you do, but we can't. You know we can't, we've never even told anyone about him! In public you are your normal happy self, no one would suspect a thing! If I was like that Elijah would have never even suspected anything was wrong! You've never even told Arden or Raven and we've been friends with them for years! Why would you think I'd tell him?" I couldn't help it, the fact she'd bring up the possibility I'd tell anyone about what my father did is insane. I was just completely livid.
"He asked me, Timothy. He asked me about dad before I left. He tried to get it out of me because he said you wouldn't tell him." She rushed to say.
"No..No, because I told him I'd tell him when I was ready. Why would he go behind my back to you?"
She looked at me with pity in her eyes, but my sister would never lie to me. "I'm sorry, Timothy. You know you can't tell him."
I sighed and clenched my jaw. "I didn't ask for him as my father, I didn't ask for Elijah to consul me in problems I've been dealing with for 10 years, we didn't ask for an abusive father who makes our lives hell! Tell people don't tell people, what are they going to do? Nothing. We might as well keep learning how to deal with getting treated like a piece of no good waste like father says we are right? Because we asked for this life? He choose to have us, we didn't choose to have him. Let me tell you, Colette, no one is going to help us, no matter who it is..mom has tried..even after father.." I had tears running down my cheeks, and a knot in my throat. My nails were digging into my hands to control my emotions, my hands and arms were almost visibly shaking if I were not trying to control it.
"Don't talk about what he did to you, Timothy. We just shouldn't be talking about this at all, you know this." She sighed.
"No," I said. "We shouldn't," and I stormed out of the living room, slamming my bedroom door behind me.
