(…I Think I Just Lied To My Little Brother)
I go home, thinking about the conversation Irene and Liz were having. If being at the dojo was too dangerous, then why didn’t I just come up there for training and then go home? It would be a lot easier than explaining to my parents that I was moving out, when I’m only fourteen.
Yeah, and it would also be a lot easier for one of your evil characters, or vengeance seeking ones to get a hold on you later. You need as few distractions as possible during training. School is going to be enough of a distraction, let alone worrying about protecting your family. Chiyo reasons. For someone who’s dangerously insane, her advice makes sense sometimes.
Okay, so how am I supposed to get them to let me go live with a bunch of people they don’t even know exist? I ask her.
I don’t know…you could always run away from home. No one would ever think to look on the mountains, unless they had a death wish. You heard them, the forest around that dojo is dangerous. Most humans wouldn’t stand a chance.
I hate to admit it, but this seems like the only really possible way to do this. I start planning on how I’ll do all of this as I walk into the house.
“I’m home!” I yell. Trevor rushes to the front door and tackles me with a hug, his vice-like grip inescapable.
“Hey sis, guess what?” He says, as I rub my arms to get circulation going again.
“What?”
“I get to go spend the night at Toshimori’s tonight!” He says. I was wondering why he had a bag sitting by the doorway.
“Awesome! Hope you two have fun.” I tell him, smiling. I wonder how he’ll react when his big sister just disappears off the map. I really hope that I don’t worry them too much…then again, I’ll be running away. Why wouldn’t they be worried? Man, I really hate this idea. Luckily, I don’t have to work it all out quite yet. Irene hasn’t mentioned it to me yet, so I still have time.
“Bethany, would you mind walking your brother over to Toshimori’s? You’re father’s already asleep, and I’m in the middle of making dinner, otherwise I wouldn’t ask.” Mom says, her voice floating out from the kitchen.
“Sure mom, I’ll be back in a little while.” I reply, picking up Trevor’s bag. “Have you got everything you need Trevor?”
“Yep, mom helped me pack.”
“Alright, come on then.”
We both step outside and start walking. It’s almost dark by now, so I’m glancing around for ayakashi, just in case. Normally they wouldn’t be out this early, but you never know.
“Hey sis?”
“What Trevor?”
“How come you haven’t been home much lately?” He asks. I look at the ground.
“Sissy’s been hanging out with her friends.”
“Are you mad ‘cause we had to move because of me?” Wow, I didn’t think he knew why we moved. I figured he just thought it would be fun, and didn’t think about why.
“I’m not mad buddy. Yeah I miss my friends, and the rest of the family, but I like it here.”
“I wanna go home.”
I stop and look down at him.
“You don’t want to go to Toshimori’s?”
“No, I wanna go, but I miss my old friends too, and going to grandpa’s and grandma’s house. I wanna move back home.” He looks so sad as he says this. I’ve never seen him like this. I kneel down and hug him.
“Everything will be fine Trevor. I promise. Besides, we might be able to visit them, and maybe mom and dad will let you get an e-mail address so you can talk to them.”
“You really think so?”
“Yep. Now come on, we’ve kept them waiting long enough.” He smiles as I stand back up and take his hand, leading him to the front door.
The entire way home, I really hope I can find a way to keep my promise.
