“Really?” the blonde asked, disbelief evident in his tone. Like the brunette had stated before, such relationships were quite rare, and when they actually happened, he was a sucker for ‘em. It was the cliche, picturesque relationship that Hollywood had tried to sell to people of all ages, the majority of girls wanting to have that type of relationship. As much as they desired one, it rarely worked out, because you sort of got friend-zoned when you signed up to be best mates.
“You talk about your family a lot,” he mused out loud, replaying their conversations in his head. “Every time we talk about something, you always manage to bring your family into it. You really care about them,” he stated as if it were plain as day. The way that Fletcher talked about his family and sibling was with a tone of utmost love and devotion, and Aaron had heard the tone several times when speaking to him. For an example, he had just spoken of his parents, and he took care of the Irish lad as he would for his younger siblings, his family being integrated into the majority of his life.
Fletcher reflected for a moment, before nodding slowly. “Yeah, I guess I do.” he realized. “But I think you’re the only one I’ve talked about them with.” He paused, the memories threatening to crash over his mind. He quickly walked over to Aaron and pulled him up, unwilling to have a breakdown in the beginning of the day. He’d been putting it off for a while, but he’d put it off forever if he had to.
“Come, on, wanna see them?” Without waiting for an answer, he dragged the blonde into his room and grabbed the holo picture screen he’d found in his duffle, turning it on and facing it towards a wall.
“That’s my sister, her names Ashen, but we call her Ash. And that’s Greyson, or Grey. They look like twins, but Ash is two years younger. We always joked they were name twins.” Fletcher babbled on, ignoring the headache that was beginning to fester in the corner of his brain and hoping Aaron wouldn’t hate him for making him listen to something so unrelated to today.
