So I drew Alex. I'm actually happier than I thought I'd be with it. The picture makes it look worse than it is. ^^

Alex got a phone call at lunch, "I have to take this. I'm sorry."

"It's fine, go ahead," Yuri smiled.

Alex nodded and stood up quickly answering and began talking quickly in a language Yuri didn't know. He stepped out the restaurant and Yuri followed at a respectful distance unable to hear the other language at the distance he was at. Alex looked mad, or at least upset. When he began waving his hands and his voice rose Yuri realized he was mad. It continued on for a few more minutes before Alex hung up up and walked back inside Yuri following him.

"What was that about?"

"I was talking to my dad."

"You said he wouldn't call you for a week."

"Yeah, well he's a jerk so he called early."

"What do you mean?"

"She's coming here and I'm expected to keep it together without my medicine while she's here because if I don't it'll ruin everything."

"Wait, why is she coming here?"

"They want us to meet in person and she's on break for school and I'm going to be in school."

"So she's coming next week?"

"Yeah, and I have severely pissed him off. He's said if I can't act like a normal person with her here next week without the pills then I can forget having them at all."

Yuri frowned, "Why doesn't he just give them to you so you can?"

Alex signed rubbing his eyes, "He's proving that he has power over me. I've been... Not the best son lately so if a sort he's putting me in my place."

"What did you do? Why didn't you listen to me yesterday and spend the night?"

"You didn't want me to."

"Alex, I thought you could handle it. You then reminded me of your condition and I realized I was stupid. What even happened last night?"

"Antonio was going to leave me alone, but then Luuk came in. He threatened to... Do something and I agreed to sleep with him if he left me alone. I tried really hard not to, but halfway through I had a meltdown. When he kept going I threw up. He was angry then and shoved me off of him. That's when Antonio intervened. He told him I wasn't going to be able to finish so to finish with him and then leave me alone anyway. Luuk agreed."

" What made your dad so angry? "

Alex laughed,"What doesn't make him angry? The hair, the clothes, the piercings, the eyeliner. I have to get my hair dyed back to my natural color next week and he said he's sending My clothes and I can only wear those."

"Will you be able to wear them?"

"I'm going to have to," Alex shrugged, "I need the medicine. I'm going insane."

"You'll be fine."

"Want to go somewhere?"

"Like where?"

"A party today at seven."

"Who's throwing it?"

"Some you'd adults who still act like kids. There won't be alcohol, I promise and at the door you grab the sticker labeled taken. No one will move on you then."

"Sure, but Alex?"

"Yeah?"

"What did Luuk threaten to do?"
