hello terri

The elf looked at Magrat’s innocent expression, and opened the box.
Greebo had spent an irritating two minutes in that box. Technically, a cat locked in a box may be alive or it may be dead. You never know until you look. In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.
Shawn dived sideways as Greebo went off like a Claymore mine.
“Don’t worry about him,” said Magrat dreamily, as the elf flailed at the maddened cat. “He’s just a big softy.”

CH. 1 Mickeys Favorite Spot

Summary: Mickey always felt like a loner. Being a Milkovich meant he was going to be looked down upon most of his life, Making it hard to make any friends other than his own siblings. It didn’t help being a closeted homosexual on the south side of Chicago. Other than going to school mickey didn’t leave his house a lot. Now that its summer and his gay bashing father is out of prison, He finds a new spot to hang out and potentially a new friend. 

Word Count: 1125


It’s been six days since summer break started for seventeen year old Mickey Milkovich. So far he’s spent his break hanging out with his brothers and his younger sister Mandy. Mostly sitting in front of their flat screen TV. set up in their living room. Iggy had stolen it from an electronic shop a few blocks over, awhile back. The siblings were sat in front of the television watching a rerun of friends. 

Mickey and Mandy were sitting together on the smaller couch, silently sitting and passing a joint back a forth between each other. Mickey never admitted it but Mandy was his favorite sibling. No matter what shit was going down in their family, they always stuck together. When Mandy caught Mickey jacking off to a gay porn magazine a few months back, all she said to him was “mick, you know i don’t care, just be careful who finds out”  and accepted Mickey for who he is. Mickey was in horror when his sister had walked in on him and yelled at her to get the fuck out of his room. He knew his sister wouldn’t care as he knew she had gay friends, he just wasn’t ready to tell her yet and couldn’t risk his father finding out.

Iggy and Colin were sat on the other couch drinking beer and laughing at some stupid joke on the television. The house phone rang and the siblings looked at each other, “ i’m not getting up to get it” Colin said. “ Me either” said Iggy. Which left Mandy or Mickey to get the phone, Mickey gave his sister a sincere look and shrugged his shoulders. “ Fine ill get!” Mandy exclaimed, sighing and getting up off the couch.

Mandy picked up the phone and waited as the recording on the other end said “ you have a collect call from cook county department of corrections from inmate…, Terry Milkovich…” when Mandy heard her dads voice saying his own name she rolled her eyes, the only time her father called from prison was when he wanted money put into his commissary account for smokes. the recording continued “ To accept the call press 1 “ Mandy pressed 1 and waited for it to connect.

“ hello?” Terry Asked

“ hey” Mandy said in a annoyed voice

“ i need someone to pick me up tomorrow, getting out of this shit hole” Terry said

“ wait what, i thought you had another month?” Mandy asked now worried

“ getting out early because of overcrowding, one of you useless kids going to come get me or what?” 

“ Um, ya. yeah sure” Mandy said quietly

Beep.

Terry hung up as the only reason he called was the make sure someone was there to pick him up the next day. Mandy stood there with the phone still in her hand, a million thoughts running through her head as she didn’t expect her dad to be coming home so early. 

Mickey turned around and noticed Mandy standing there silently looking at the ground. “ who was it “ Mickey Asked. “ ahh, it was dad..” Mandy replied. “ what did the fucker want” Mickey said back to her. “ Hes ugh, hes getting out tomorrow. wanted to know if one of us were going to pick him up”. Mandy replied.

Now, Iggy and Colin were also turned around and staring at Mandy. all the siblings silently staring at each other. Mickey spoke up first “ fuck him, he can find his own way home i’m not going to get him”. “ ill do it, ill take the car” Colin said. Colin was the only sibling who seemed to still give a shit about Terry, Mandy and Mickey had no time for him anymore after all the drunken and drug induced fights they’ve had with him. Iggy usually followed Colin as they were closer. 

Mickey had gotten up from the couch and made his way past Mandy into the kitchen, he went to the fridge and grabbed a six pack of beer and headed to his room. He couldn’t be in this house right now he needed to leave and go somewhere, anywhere to clear his head. in his room he grabbed a book bag that was in the corner of his room, put his six pack in it and grabbed two joints from his night stand and put them in too. 

He slipped on a hoodie and put the book bag over his shoulder and exited the house. Mandy quickly ran after him knowing he would be pissed that their dad is getting out of prison. she followed him onto the porch of the house and asked “where are you going?” behind him. “ fuck off, ill be back later” Mickey replied as he starting walking down the street.

Mickey didn’t know where he was going and just started aimlessly walking down the street. he lit up a cigarette and kept walking, he had ended up walking five blocks before he stopped to look where he was. He looked down the street and saw a dead end that turned into a grass field and “ The L” train passing overhead. He let out a sigh and walked over to the overpass. He laid the book bag down and took out a beer as he leaned up against the concrete pillar under the train. 

Although he didn’t have a cellphone or a watch, he knew he had to have been there for at least an hour now. He was now sitting down on the ground with his back up against the pillar. He had five of his six beer drank and one of the joints smoked, and almost a full pack of smokes gone. He couldn’t believe terry was coming home tomorrow. He had just finally accepted that he was gay to himself, it took years to get this far after being so scared and terrified of what terry would do if he found out, mickey hid it well and besides Mandy no one else knew. He was planning on telling his other siblings over the summer break but now with terry coming home that wasn’t going to happen. 

Mickey finished off his last beer and got up, throwing his book bag back onto his shoulder and lighting up the second joint for his walk home. As he started walking away he looked back at the area he was sat at for the last hour or so, he took in the sight one last time, realizing just how peaceful and calming it was to just sit there and think for awhile without any interruptions. He knew he’d be coming back to this spot, especially once Terry gets home tomorrow.
