"Remus, you still haven't told me what we're doing." Deceit frowned as Remus pulled away holding his bottle tightly in his hands. "What's with the water? Why'd we have to go to a..."

"Shh..." Remus glanced over at the door and frowned as he knocked on the door. "Roman, can't know. Otherwise, it won't work. You just have to trust me on this Caz. Please?"

"Never." Remus laughed as Deceit pecked his cheek with a kiss before hiding behind the wall as Roman opened his door.

"Remus?" Roman's eyes narrowed as he glanced around. Remus just held the bottle tightly as Roman just laughed. "What are you doing here?"

"Can't I come see my brother?" Remus tried to ignore how red Roman's eyes look... how puffy. It was obvious Roman had been crying. 

"Of course you can... I just uh..." Roman's eyes darted back to his room and Remus frowned seeing Roman try to shift about to block Remus's view. "I wasn't expecting anyone."

"Is everything ok?" Remus glance over to see Deceit's eyes widening as he pointed to his own hand, making Remus frown, only to notice Roman had his hand hidden. "Roman?"

"Everything's fine Bro. Seriously, what is with everyone? It's almost like... Hey!" Remus pushed his way into the room only to freeze seeing the mess that was in there. His eyes went wide seeing the broken and bloody mirror shattered about the place. He turned back as Roman slowly closed the door and frowned seeing Roman's hand all cut up. "I didn't want you seeing that."

"What happened?" Roman frowned as Remus's grip tightened even more around the bottle.

"Nothing... really... I'm fine." Remus narrowed his eyes and Roman frowned. "I don't know ok." Roman just broke down as he collapsed onto his bed. Tears fell as he groaned in annoyed frustration. "I don't know. I-I'm fine really. I just... don't understand."

"You're clearly not ok. If you punched your mirror." Roman's eyes flashed as he pushed himself up again.

"But I am. I don't have any reason to be upset I just am... I couldn't even get Prince. He's still with mom. It's just... I don't know." Remus sighed as he put the water bottle on the table before walking over to his brother. "I just haven't been feeling right for a while."

"It's ok." Remus sat down beside Roman who held his head as he shook. "It's ok, Roman."

"What's wrong with me? Why do I feel so shitty?" Remus could take how broken his brother looked. "I don't understand. It's like something's missing. I KNOW something's missing but..." Remus tensed as Roman narrowed his eyes. "I don't know what it is." Remus glanced down spotting a familiar necklace around Roman's neck and frowned. 

"That's a nice necklace." Roman frowned in confusion before looking down and sighing. "Where'd you get it?" Remus knew exactly where Roman got it. His brother went insane with joy just gushing about it the next day to him. It was a gift from his love after all. Roman's eyes narrowed and Remus tensed. "Roman?"

"I... I-I don't... I don't know." Roman's handheld it tightly as his eyes flashed again. "I don't know where I got it but... I just couldn't make myself take it off." Deceit wasn't kidding. Roman really was hurting.

"Hey Ro?" Remus tried to smile as he took his brother's hand. He had to fix this. "Why don't we go for a walk?"

"To where?" Roman just stared over at his brother in confusion as Remus squeezed his hand. 

"To the falls?" Roman's skin seemed to crawl at the thought.

"No thanks. I'm good."

"Roman's let's take a walk. Some fresh air would do you good." Roman jumped up shaking his head as Remus continued to push. "Come one, Roman. You love that spot. You go there all the time."
