At the Astin Family Home
Benny and Lloyd hugged as they watched a movie together. Benny had very much enjoyed his time at the Al Farsi’s. While the others had cringed at Khizer’s terrible stories and the ear splitting stereo screeches of two babies in the one room had made them cover their ears, he had loved spending time with them. While they were all so different, they all seemed to care for each other and have their own places within the family; it was something that he had always wanted for himself.
As he sat with his head on Lloyd’s shoulder, he tried not to think about returning to the shared home in a couple of day’s time. He was looked after there and no one had treated him poorly, but it just wasn’t the same.
Notes: A rare hatless Benny appears!
