the only one he has sworn to protect is Aaron (and Nicky to some extent but for a different reason)
and Nathaniel, the oddball with fiery hair and fierier personality, is not posing any threat to them
however, Nathaniel is a liar
he says the scars on his back and chest and stomach were caused by accidents. By an obscure cousin who’s sometimes psychotic, sometimes just clumsy. Sometimes it’s an uncle. Sometimes it’s “I don’t remember”.
nobody seems to be catching on the widely deriving stories – or rather, they probably just don’t want to acknowledge it
when Nathaniel takes his shirt off, eyes slide off to walls, to other people, to the neatly arranged stack of rackets in the corner
this isn’t something the other Ravens have signed to deal with, and they will be satisfied with whatever answer Nathaniel provides off-handedly when one of them lets a breathless “what happened to you?” out
they don’t want to catch on the inconsistency of his barely conceded lies, because those scars are old, those scars are from the past, it’s ancient story and Nathaniel is safe now, right?
(they steal uneasy glances to the triangular shape on Nathaniel’s skin, and Andrew sees it)
(Andrew sees it, he sees the twitch of Nathaniel’s lips when he comes up with yet another obscure family member to sign the red marks on his body with, and in the midst of it only one is missing)
I started to recreate my characters yesterday, and started to cringing after I saw my old arts that I posted in DA. I’m always using mouse at that point, but the good thing is I improved so much back then and that’s good ^^
Her name is Rhea Scarlet, a 22 years old crazy lady that likes to bomb places, even in supermarkets. (This is like the point of her tbh, and still gonna work more xD)
(Believe me you’ll cringe if you see this old pic of her :‘y)
