JAKE AND HIS LITTLE BROTHER ARE SENT TO LIVE WITH A GAY COUPLE WHEN THERE MORTHER DIES. JAKE HATES HIMSELF FOR WHAT HAPPENED. cAN HE BE SAVED BY HIS FOSTER DAD? OR DADS?
Life isn’t what people make it out to be. It’s not happy or fun. It’s horrible, cruel. Or maybe that’s just my life. I’ve been beating, raped, cut, burned, but then again, I wouldn’t change it, because it stopped it from happen to Matthew, My little brother. He’s 4 years old. Cutest thing in this whole world, He is my world. The only good thing about my life is him. If he wasn’t hear I’d be beside my mom in the graveyard we just laid her to rest in. you see my mom died for days ago, murdered by our uncle but the cops are putting it down to suicide, stupid morons that they are, do I have proof it was him? No, but he told me once before that he would. And he did, he killed my mom, thinking he’d get custody of me and Matthew. But the social worker won’t allow it. Right now Matthew and I are in the back of his car, heading to New Jersey to our new foster parents, a gay couple I believe but it doesn’t bother me, we won’t be there for long. As soon as I get money Matthew and I are out of there. I’ll protect him with my life and from the moment I found my mother dead, I promised her I’d take care of him. And that’s what I intend on doing. I was snapped out of my thought when a small voice called my name.
‘Jake?’ I looked over at Matthew. He was sitting in his booster chair holding tightly to his teddy.
‘Yeah Matty?’ He reached for me but I shock my head. ‘I can’t take you out buddy, not until the car stops.’ He pouted and I chuckled.
‘But why? I want to sit on your knee, I’m tired’ He rubbed his eyes with his free hand and yawned. I looked at the social worker to see he was smiling but his eyes where on the road. I took my seat belt off and moved to the middle chair, sticking my belt back on and picking up my guitar.
‘Buddy you can’t sit on me just yet, where driving but I can play cat and mouse to help you sleep?’ He nodded and stuck his thumb in his mouth, pulling his teddy closer to his small body. I took a shaky breath and started to play softly, humming the words as I didn’t want the dude up front to hear it. Nobody hears me sing but Matthew. I wrote this song the night my mom died, yet I still have no words to so with it yet. Half way through the song I looked over and Matthew was fast asleep. I put the guitar down and leaned back against the chair.
‘You’re a good kid Jake, Your mother would be proud of how you’ve handled everything that’s happened today.’ Just hearing him say my mother would be proud brought tears to my eyes.
‘Don’t talk about my mom, you never knew her, you’ve got know right.’ I winched at my own harsh words. But the guilt of everything that had happened is slowly eating away at me and just hearing someone say something about my mom makes it ten times worse. I seen him nod, but he didn’t say anything else for the rest of the car ride. I watched Matthew sleep for most of the ride, even though I knew he was fine, he was safe, I just felt the need to watch him, just in-case. I felt the car slow down and turn into a drive way, the house at the end was pretty big, much bigger then my own, but not big enough for it to be called a mansion although it was bother-line. The car stopped outside the house. Ray got out and opened Matthew’s door. I shot out and pushed him aside.
‘Don’t touch him’ I growled. He backed away quickly. I didn’t see fear in his face, but understanding. He nodded and opened the boot where all out stuff where. I heard the door open from behind me but I didn’t take notice of the couple standing there watching. I leaned down and unhooked Matthews’s seat-belt. He stirred and opened his little brown eyes.
‘Hey buddy where hear, you coming out?’ He nodded and healed out his arms I hooked my hands under his arms and lifted him out, His small body clung to me for warmth, resting his head on my shoulder.
‘Gerard, Frank. This is Jake and Matthew. Jake, Matthew this is Gerard and Frank Iero-Way they will be taking care of you.’ I looked at the two men standing before me. Frank was a small man, small build. He was slightly tanned and hand Brown hair. Gerard was a Tall man, Dark hair, pale skin. He was well built too. I took a step back from him. He reminded me of my uncle way to much for my liking.
‘Jake it’s alright, they won’t hurt you.’ Ray touched my arm but I stepped away from him too.
‘Why don’t you take Matthew inside and look around we will be in, in a minute.’ Frank said softly and I nodded and walked around them, Frank’s side of course, and ran inside. Wow this house is huge.
‘I’m very sorry about him; he’s not the best around men at the moment. If I’m honest I don’t know why but I’m sure once he gets use to you he will settle in. He’s a good kid though, never been in trouble before, good attendance at school. Very protective of his brother. As for Matthew, he is a great kid, quite shy, but a scream once he gets going. I’m sure you’ll have your hands full.’ Ray laughed.
‘Don’t worry Ray, I’m use to it’ I chuckled. Frank pouted at me before laughing himself.
‘Anything we should know, before you head off.’ Frank asked. He was excited to have the boys staying with us. Trying to adopt isn’t easy when you are in the same sex marriage. But Ray is a good friend of ours and when he said he had two boys, brothers, for us, we jumped at the chance.
’Nope, not that I can think of. But if I think of anything I’ll call you. Oh there mom was laid to rest today, so they might not talk much. It’s very upsetting, to young boys losing there mother like that. Anyway, if you have any problems you know where I am.’ I nodded ad hugged the afro man.
‘Thanks Man, you’ve no idea how much this means to us’ I pulled Frank into me and he cuddled into my side.
‘Guys, I couldn’t think of anyone better then to take care of them. They really are great kids. They just need some guiding now, Jake mostly.’ He hugged Frank and got into his car, driving away. I sighed and looked down at my baby.
‘Ready for this babe?’ He smiled and nodded.
‘More then anything. I love you Gerard.’ I leaned down and kissed him soundly on the lips.
‘I love you too baby’
