Hey Liam!” You jogged a bit, trying to get caught up with your boyfriend.
“Hey (Y/N)!” We were side by side and I bumped my shoulder against his.
“So what’s your pick for that English project?” The class we just came out of assigned us to do a documentary on monsters ‘as if they were real.’ Ha. Well do I have some news for you.
“Oh… I don’t really know. Werewolves are definitely out of the question for both of us. Maybe A cyclops? What about you?“
"Dragons, obviously.” We entered the library and set up at the table in the very back, the location picked for various reasons. After Liam set his stuff down, he went searching for books. I opened up my laptop and began searching for pieces of footage I could use.
Some time passed, and Liam didn’t come back, so I went looking for him. Did this library have a mythology section? Why was it so disorganized back here?
I found him sitting on the ground, his back leaning against a bookshelf and scribbling down notes he found interesting in a notebook. But it wasn’t about Cyclopes.
The page was opened to sirens.
Liam looked like he was caught red handed.
“(Y/N) I’m sorry I just want to know about you and since you never talk about it I’m trying to find out but all of the notes I have contradict my other notes and the bestiary isn’t much help because its got almost nothing in it about sirens and I’m sorry…” I sat next to Liam and waited for him to stop his rambling. Once he did, I sighed. He just wanted to know.
“The reason why nobody knows anything, is because most of us never leave the water. None of us tell our secrets to anyone and we most certainly do not talk about our past. To anyone.”
“Liam. Drop it. It’s not something I revisit.” I stood up and started going back to our table but he grabbed my arm, stopping me.
“Because Liam we are the definition of monsters. We tear men limb from limb just for being men. We have ceremonies where we rinse their blood out from our hair. We. Are. Monsters.” I hated thinking about it. I despised talking about it. I couldn’t stand crying about it.
Liam held me as all the emotions that I kept bottled up came fizzling out. “I’m sorry… I’m sorry (Y/N)… I understand. I understand now. But look at me. You are not a monster. You’re no more of a monster than I am. Ok? Hey… It’s ok (Y/N). That was then. And this is now. I’m sorry (Y/N). I love you.”
‘Derek this loft is so boring!’ you groaned as you came down stairs and saw your older brother reading some ancient book with no cover.
‘If you don’t like it leave, not like I’m letting live here rent free and feeding you everyday.’ Derek said without looking up.
‘I stay here because since I’m sixteen and you’re my guardian, you know, legally bound to provide for me until I’m eighteen.’ you snarled.
‘I can emancipate you.’
‘Then I’d go running to Liam, and we both know how much you don’t want that. Me, and my boyfriend, living under the same roof, parents always busy working. Who knows what we’d get up to in a completely empty house? I could be teen mom.’ you said, knowing you were getting under his skin.
‘Shut up.’ Derek said while pointing to you.
‘Only if you put a damn TV in this loft, with good cable, and honestly what kind of dinosaur can live without wifi?’
‘The kind that knows how to read books and do productive things with their time.’ Derek said as he turned back to his book.
‘So is that a yes or no to the TV and wifi?’ you asked.
‘Will it shut you up and keep you out of my face so I can read in peace?’ Derek asked back in annoyance.
‘Yes, I promise.’ you swore.
‘Yay! Love you bro!” you squealed as you hugged him.
