part i (suggest reading first)
With shaky hands, Riley opened the car door. His eyes stayed locked on the group of people a mile in front of him as he walked. His hands continued to tremble, causing his keys to shake in his hand. Growing irritated with the sound, Riley shoved the keys into the silence of his pocket. The people in front of him became clearer as he got closer. He noticed a group of your girlfriends, crying into each other’s shoulders. His eyes continued to scan the crowd. The colour of black overwhelmed him. He noticed a number of your co-workers he didn’t care to know the names of, a few distant cousins, relatives and family friends that you, Toby, Connor and Riley hadn’t talked to in an umpteenth amount of years. He pushed his way through the crowd of people until bumping into a tall brunette, causing Riley to take an extra look at his face, realising it was Jonah.
“Hey, Riley.” His voice seemed husky and his eyes puffy, causing Riley to believe he had been crying.
“Hi, Jonah.” Riley replied with a miniscule whisper. He hadn’t talked to any of the Why Don’t We boys since the night Toby had called them.
“I’m sorry for your loss.” Jonah whispers back, trying to keep the conversation between the two of them rather than the whole crowd around them.
“I’m sorry for yours, too.” Riley responded before kissing his teeth. Jonah nodded as the two locked eyes for a second. Riley held his breath as he looked down at his feet.
“I’ll talk to you later.” Jonah sniffed before walking in his original direction. Riley let go of the breath he had been holding, running a hand through his hair as he continued to walk towards the front of the crowd. Once he reached it, his eyes locked on the dreaded sight in front of him.
Two caskets side by side, decorative flowers on each, and his vulnerable brother, Toby, standing in front of them.
“Toby,” Riley’s voice caused the younger brunette to jump, spinning around to lock eyes with his older brother “, hey.”
“Oh,” Toby let out a sigh before letting his eyes drift back to the caskets “hi.”
His voice was barely a whisper, concern filling Riley’s mind. “Toby, anything you could’ve-“
“I know,” Toby spat, interrupting Riley “, Connor said the same thing. ‘Anything you could’ve done wouldn’t have helped.’ But it should have, Riley. I was the one to make the call and tell him and now he’s dead and I have his blood on my fucking hands just like the man running free with the blood of our fucking sister!”
Riley stepped back in shock. Toby had never lashed out like that before, not even when he found out about your death. His eyes locked with Riley’s, causing them to calm and form tears.
“Oh, Riley, I’m so sorry, I-“
Riley pulled his younger brother into a tight hug, muffled sobs leaving Toby’s mouth.
“Hey, it’ll be okay,” Riley’s voice shook as he spoke “, now come on. Hold it together. It’s about to start.” The funeral director cleared his throat into the microphone.
“Welcome everyone, thank you all for coming. Today, we celebrate the lives of y/n McDonough, her life taken from us too soon, and Daniel Seavey, taking his life too soon.”
