Modern Hiccup RP: jekel-and-hyde and berks-dragon-trainer
“Hiccup! Get up for school!”
Hiccup’s eyelids forced themselves open as Hiccup let out a disgusted groan. School. The word he hated almost as much as the word ‘alone’.
He sat up in his bed and rubbed his eyes. He looked out the window at the sunrise, pondering why school always has to start so early. He sighed as he got up, he was feeling stiff today.
He got dressed and ambled down the stairs into the kitchen, where Stoick made him toast with strawberry jam. He sat down on the kitchen stool and took a bite of his food. Burnt, again.
He choked the piece that was in his mouth down his throat before asking his father for milk. Stoick poured him a glass and put his elbows on the table, cupping his face in his hands as he looked at his son.
“You don’t HAVE to go to school today Hiccup, I’d completely understand.”
Hiccup had enough of his dad babying him. He set his milk down to talk to his dad. “Dad just because mom died two weeks ago today, doesn’t mean I can’t go to school.” He said sternly with a bit if annoyance in his voice. Stoick sighed. “…I know son.” He said as his eyes got glossy, trying not to cry.
‘Oh god not the tears again..’Hiccup thought. He hated seeing his dad cry, and he’s seen a lot of it lately, but he just wasn’t in the mood for anything today. “Dad I’ll be fine. You have your wedding ring on and I have hers on my necklace.” He lifted up his dog tags to show his dad that he did indeed have his mother’s wedding ring with him. “See? I’ll be okay dad.” He said.
Stoick looked at Hiccup with sadness in the old man’s eyes. He gave out a sigh and a weak, half smile at to Hiccup. “I just feel alone, you know?” Stoick said as his lower lip trembled. “Dad, come on…” Hiccup said as he got off the stool and walked around the counter, giving his dad a hug. “I know dad…I feel alone too..but we have to tough this out and learn to carry on without her…” He said as he began to get that annoying lump in his throat that he always gets when he tries not to cry. He let go of his dad and wiped a tear from the old man’s face. “It’ll be okay..now go back to bed. I gotta catch my bus.” Hiccup said reluctantly. His father nodded, bringing his son into a tight embrace. “I love you, Hiccup..” He said before breaking down in his son’s arms. Hiccup sighed. “I love you too dad, but I have to go. Text me if you want to talk, all my teachers know what’s been going on with us so I won’t get it taken away.”
Stoick let go of Hiccup and nodded. As Hiccup was about to head out the front door, he heard Stoick say something to him. “Try to make it through the day..okay?” His father asked. “I’ll try. You too dad..” And with that, he shut the door and headed for the bus stop. Hiccup looked up to the sky as it began to snow. “Off to Purgatory…..Why me..?” He said sadly, letting a single fear fall from his left cheek and onto the concrete.
