I quickly ran to my wardrobe and shut the door silently. Parker always checks to see if the house is empty, he has the same plan every time. Sure enough, my door creaked open, and through the crack of my wardrobe door I could see Parker’s arrogant face smirking. I think it looks cuter when I smirk, but that’s beside the point.

After he checks that there’s no one home, he acts like he needs something before giving her a lift home.

“Just gotta make a pit stop,” Parker said. “Come up.” Millie cautiously came up the stairs, and looked around.

“No… stupid girl, get out of here,” I whispered.

Next, Parker is going to invite her into his room and shut the door.

“You like guitars, right? I love them,” Parker said, and it is then that I noticed my Telecaster is missing from my wall.

“Son of a bitch,” I hissed.

“Yea, I like them,” Millie said, and I felt my stomach twist. She was so fragile, her voice shaky as Parker intimidated her. He went into his room. I heard the door close, so I crept out of my wardrobe, which was running out of oxygen anyway, and placed my ear on Parker’s door.

Next he’s going to play on her insecurities.

“I feel so bad about Aaron crashing your car,” he said.

“It’s OK…” Millie said uncertainly.

“His temper can get the better of him sometimes, and he never forgives the person who made him do it…”

Millie burst into tears; my teeth were clenched and my knuckles  turned white.

“As his brother, I have to stop him sometimes… he’s a nice guy, but…” he trailed off. “Everyone has their faults,”

“No,” Millie was trying to be firm, but it wasn’t working. “I don’t think I can go out with you on Friday, I… I want to talk to Aaron first.”

Parker laughed nervously. I don’t think he knew how to react when a girl rejected him. “You can’t actually want to date him, do you?”

“Yes, I do,” Millie said strongly. A little bit of the confident, sarcastic Millie was showing up. “He treats me like a princess.” My face is now bright red, I can tell without looking in the mirror.

“I’ll treat you like a princess, you haven’t even given me a chance,” he begged. I edged closer and peered through the gap in the door: Parker was leaning toward Millie, and she was trying to edge away. I stuffed my fist in my mouth, but it was no use. I had to save Millie. I burst into the room, and Parker looked up in alarm which turned into amusement.

“Get away from her!” I yelled.

“Hi Aaron, thanks for giving me a lift home from the beach,” Millie said sarcastically.

“I’m sorry, OK? I was angry -”

“Oh, we got that,” Parker said. “The real question is, what did poor Millie ever do to you? Come on, I’ll give you a lift home, babe.” And he put his arm around Millie’s shoulder and steered her out the door. I didn’t trust him at all, so I tagged along on her lift home. She was very quiet and she was trembling… I felt useless, and powerless. Why would I even try standing up to my brother? He always wins anyway, it’s not like I stand a chance. The silence in the car was as cold as the frosted windows… maybe we would be seeing the first of the winter snowfall soon. I kept glancing at Millie, and Parker kept smirking at me through the rearview mirror. He dropped her home, and then turned to me, grinning.
