 ~Matt's POV~

 Edd grabbed my hand and pulled me out of his room before I could even say anything. I wondered what Tord was going to say even if he was lying. I looked at the small green hoodied male and I couldn't help but smile. Every time I see Edd it just makes me happy and his smile is one of the cutest things I've ever seen, one of them my face being the other. Edd returned the smile and then suggested that maybe we should watch something I nodded in agreement and went over and plopped down on the couch, Edd grabbed the remote and sat down next to me turning it on. 

  A loud thump came from Edd's room and then it fell silent. Edd was watching the television and didn't react to the loud noise. I glanced over at him "Edd?" I questioned. Edd turned and his chocolate brown eyes met mine "Yeah?" he responded, tilting his head slightly. "Did you hear that?" I asked looking at his room and then back at him. 

"It's just Tord and Tom" he replied as if it was a normal occurrence. Would we have to go spilt them up? Their fights had become quite violent numerous times. Edd practically read my mind "Let's let them be" Edd suggested with a soft smile. They emerged from Edd's room a few moments later Tom had a bloody nose and Tord had a bruise forming on his face.  Edd looked at the two and then quickly stood up and rushed over to Tom "You're bleeding!" he cried.

    "No shit sherlock" Tom mumbled. Edd ignored his last comment "Let me clean you up" Edd insisted. "I'm fine Edd rea-" Tom started but Edd cut him off "Please?" Edd begged looking up at the alcoholic. Tord had already walked off to only god knows where. "Fine" Tom agreed. 

   ~Edd's POV~

I took Tom's hand in mine and lead him to the bathroom. I had him sit down so I could reach his face, well I could reach his face but it would be more challenging if he was standing up. I cleaned up all the blood and then I threw the wet napkin away. Tom brushed some of his spikey brown hair out of his face and I caught a glimpse of his hand. I grabbed his hand before he could protest and studied it. 

    His knuckles were bruised and bleeding. "You really messed yourself up didn't you," I said looking up into his dark eyes, already knowing the answer. "If Tord wasn't such an asshole I wouldn't have to punch him" Tom snapped balling up his fist. "Tom, please calm down," I said softly putting my hand on his shoulder. "You don't understand how much I despise him" Tom muttered angrily.

   "I know, I know," I said with a sigh "You hate him" He bit his lip and muttered something I didn't quite catch. "You two are my friends and I want my friends to get along," I said softly, looking up at Tom. Tom looked back at me and sighed "I'll try my best Edd, but I don't make any promises" he replied. I hugged him tightly and he hugged me back when I pulled away from the embrace he stood up and went out into the living room. Matt was sitting on the couch watching something on the television and Tom joined him.

I went outside in search of Tord, I found him leaning against the house smoking a cigar. He glanced at me before taking a long drag of his cigar and blowing the smoke out. I went and stood beside him, almost gagging because of the smell of his cigar. "Tord, can you please try and get along with Tom?" I pleaded, looking up at him. He stared at the clear blue sky, pondering for a moment before turning to look at me "Sure" he replied with a shrug "I'll try but that doesn't mean it's going to work out" he pointed out crossing his arm that wasn't holding his cigar over his chest.

  I smiled "I appreciate it Tord," I said pulling him into a hug. He hugged me back awkwardly and then quickly pulled away. Tord was never good when it came to being affectionate, he showed affection by teasing people hugs had never really been his thing. He looked at me, I could tell he wanted to say something.
