The thunder rolled while the skies opened up and poured down onto the Hideki household. The rain was hard and thick and accented the mood perfectly. “Aniki,” Ryo called, sitting on the guest room's bed. They had been able to take Kyo home and for some reason the boy had went straight to the guest bedroom. He hardly spoke and that torn at Ryo more than anything. He reached a hand out to place it on Kyo's. His brother looked so lost.

Kyo stared down at their hands without actually seeing them. He had to tell Ryo. This was his chance and he had to say it. His mouth opened but he couldn't find his voice. How would Ryo react to it? He had been so weak. He hadn't even been able to push Eric off of him. He closed his mouth again and the tears started again. He wept silently, the only indication that he was crying being the tear drops that fell to Ryo's hand.

Ryo's heart broke more, seeing his brother like this only made him want to kill the person that had did this to him. “Aniki,” He called again as the thunder boomed around them and the pitter-patter of the rain sounded on the windows. A flash of lightening illuminated the room slightly and Ryo moved onto the bed more. He wanted to hug his brother, but he still wasn't sure if Kyo even wanted to be touched. “I love you.”

Kyo leaned over, pulling his hand from Ryo's and wrapping his arms around his twin as he cried into the other's shoulder. "I love you too," he whispered, his voice shaking with his tears. If only he had been stronger, none of this would have happened. If only he hadn't gone in the locker room.

Tears dripped onto Kyo's shoulder as Ryo held his brother as tight as he dared. Kyo's bruises were going to take a while to heal. Ryo shook,  the sight of his brother like this painful. “It's alright, Aniki,” Ryo was mumbling along with sweet words of love. “I'll make sure everything is alright.”

At the door, Sumiko watched silently, her arms wound around herself. Her heart ached for her children.  She felt helpless, wishing she could go back in time and stop the sick person that did that to her son. Sumiko breathed in deeply and turned, wanting to make a phone call.

Her fingers shook on the phone as she dialed the number, taking the phone into the kitchen to prepare some soothing tea for her and her sons. The phone rang several times and she decided to make a cake. She should probably start dinner soon too.

The line clicked as Hiro answered the phone. "Hello?" he asked, setting down the news paper. He looked up as Eric came into the room and then gave a slightly curious tilt of his head. Eric had been crying...

“Hey Hichan,” Sumiko said softly, instant relief flowing through her veins. “How... how are you?” Her hand slipped and she dropped the kettle onto the floor with a loud clank.

Hiro blinked at hearing Sumiko drop something. "I'm fine, Mikochan...Are you ok? It sounded like you dropped something.”

Eric froze at hearing that it was Sumiko and then quickly went off to another room, closing the door and locking it behind him.

“No,” Sumiko said with a small, nervous laugh.  She picked up the kettle and set it on the stove, leaning on her hand. “It's not good, Hichan.”

"What's not good? What happened?" Hiro asked, sitting up a bit straighter as he grew worried.

“Kyochan...” Sumiko started, not sure if should spread it around. As she tried formulating her words together, Sumiko started filling the kettle with water. “He.... he got hurt.”

"He got hurt? What happened?....Like...how did he get hurt?" Hiro asked, furrowing his eyebrows.

Sumiko grew quiet, moving to pull out the cake mix and bowls. “Someone..... someone hurt him, Hichan,” She said at last, tears coming to her eyes and clouding her vision. “Someone hurt my little boy...”

Hiro frowned and felt his heart ache. He needed to be there for her. He needed to go over there. "Sumiko...Do you want me to come over?" he asked softly. This wasn't something they needed to talk about over the phone.

“Please?” Sumiko said, her heart breaking with a sob.

"I'll be there as soon as possible." Hinato said, "I love you."

“Thank you,” Sumiko said, wiping her tears from her face. She was blushing and wanted to repeat the words, but nothing could come out except a small “See you soon.”

Hiro nodded and hung up the phone, calling out to Eric that he was going to the twins' house and perhaps the boy should come with. He got no response, though he wasn't that surprised. "Dinner is in the fridge," he said with a defeated sigh before going out to his car and driving to Sumiko's. When he got there he got out of the car and moved to the door, ringing the doorbell once.

Sumiko was there in an instant, opening the door and pulling Hiro inside with a hug. “I'm sorry I made you come over here,” she was whispering, breathing in Hiro's sent as she tried not to cry.

"I wanted to come." Hiro said with a shake of his head, holding Sumiko close and stroking her hair. "It'll be alright, Mikochan," he whispered.

“Thank you,” Sumiko said, holding Hiro tighter and just feeling loved in his arms.

Hiro gave a small smile and held her for a few minutes before pulling away just a bit. He kissed her forehead gently and brushed her bangs from her face. "Let's go to the kitchen and get you some tea."

“Tea,” Sumiko said before her eyes widened. “The tea!” She pushed herself form Hiro, running to the kitchen in time to see the kettle spew steam into the air. “Ah!” She quickly removed the kettle before the water all boiled out.

Hiro smiled a bit and moved over after her. Sumiko could be so clumsy sometimes. He leaned against the counter. "Anything I can do to help?"

“I'm making a cake,” Sumiko said, pulling out four tea cups while she prepared the tea. “You can  mix the ingredients fro me if you like.” She smiled at Hiro, motioning to the counter where all the items were, ready to me mixed  together. The oven was already preheating.

Hiro nodded but moved over to Sumiko instead, wrapping his arms around her and holding her close.

“Hichan?” Sumiko said, relaxing in his arms and setting the teacup down.

Hiro held her for a couple more seconds before letting his arms slip from around her. "I just...felt like I needed to hold you for a second..." he murmured before he moved over to mix the ingredients for the cake.

Sumiko smiled, looking at Hiro's back with a fondness only a lover can portray. “Thank you,” She said, barely above a whisper as she turned back to the tea. Sumiko felt much better with Hiro being near.

-*-

“Hey now,” Kaoru said in a whisper to Ryo once lunch rolled around at school. He placed her arm on Ryo's shoulder as he stared at his bento. “What's going on?”

Ryo, of course, didn't answer, instead moving his head to look at where Kyo would have been sitting if he had came to school. It had been a few days since the incident, and Ryo had ended up going to school  like a shell of himself while staying with Kyo every other minute he could. He had even elected to study in the guest room to be near Kyo, seeing as for some reason Kyo wouldn't go back to their room.

Hikaru pulled her chair up to their desk to eat and then frowned. "Kyo's not been here for a while. What happened?" she asked worriedly.

Ryo shook his head, not wanting to talk about it. He didn't want people to know. He mumbled an excuse, saying that Kyo was sick. Turning back to his lunch, Ryo opened it and started to pick at the food his mother had prepared. He wondered if Kyo was eating while he was gone. Ryo knew that Kyo couldn't afford to get any thinner.

Kaoru looked at Hikaru, her eyes communicating silently. Ryo was keeping things form them and it was obvious. “It'll be alright,” Kaoru said, patting Ryo on the back gently. “Kyochan always gets better, doesn't he?”

Hikaru bit her bottom lip and then sighed softly. "He'll be ok. Your mother is staying with him, isn't she?"

There was a nod from Ryo, and Kaoru placed her hand on his head before moving closer and giving him a hug. “Don't get all depressed!” She said, laughing a little. “Kyochan wouldn't like that!”

Ryo smiled at the girls after lifting his head a little. “I know,” he said, and stood, Kaoru's arms falling form around him. “I think I'm going to go take  walk.”

Hikaru frowned and held out the other's lunch for him to take. "At least take your lunch. Please eat something..."

Ryo nodded, smiling at his friends before taking the lunch and leaving the room. He walked outside, thinking about going to the bathroom to wash his face before deciding against it. He needed the fresh air. He found himself walking to pool and once he realized where he was, he stopped and just stared.

Images of what might have taken place there flashed through his mind. Kyo must have struggled, with all the bruises he received. Maybe the rapist had a weapon. Maybe Kyo could have been killed. That thought stabbed at Ryo's heart and he collapsed to he knees as he started to sob. His bento fell to the ground when his hands came up to his face, the tears quickly soaking through his uniform sleeves.

Eric blinked as he stopped near the pool. He could hear someone crying...He moved to the fence and then froze. Kyo?! The panic ebbed after a second when he realized it was Ryo. Oh god..."R-...Ryochan?" he asked softly, daring to come closer.

Ryo didn't hear Eric approach, his sobs too loud in his ear. All he could think of was how he wasn't there for his brother. How could he have been? One side of him reasoned and was quickly smothered by the side that cried out. “A-aniki,” he sobbed, snot and tears mixing on his uniform.

Eric dropped to his knees beside Ryo and tentatively placed a hand on the other's shoulder. "Ryo..."

Ryo's head jerked up and he fell back to him butt. “What?” He cried, tears blurring his vision. He wiped his eyes and saw that it was Eric. “E-Eric?”

Eric felt his heart tear as he gazed at Ryo. "What...why are you crying?" he asked, praying to God it wasn't the reason he thought it would be.

Ryo didn't say anything, instead throwing his arms around Eric and using the warm body for comfort. In his mind, Ryo was berating himself for never being able to help Kyo. Even thought Kyo had a weak immune system, Kyo was always there to protect Ryo. Kyo was thinner and looked more frail that Ryo ever would, but Kyo was so strong. How could Kyo ever need Ryo's protection. “I-I wanna be able to help him!” Ryo cried into Eric's shoulder, not caring that he was ruining the other's uniform. Ryo would wash it of Eric had a problem.

Eric slowly wrapped his arms around Ryo. "Help who?" he asked, the dread building.

“A-Aniki,” Ryo mumbled, holding Eric tighter. “I'm so useless! I can't even protect him!” Ryo's words were barely audible as he pressed his face in Eric's neck. He hiccuped, his sobs giving him a headache.

Eric tensed. It was what he thought it was...God what was he supposed to say? He simply held Ryo closer, trying his hardest not to let his fear show.

Minutes passed and Ryo called down a bit, relaxing his death grip on Eric slightly. He hiccuped, wiping his his face with one hand. “I'm pathetic,” he mumbled, and looked up at Eric. “Kyo got hurt and I wasn't there. He.. he was....”

Erik averted his eyes. "I've...heard rumors..." he muttered.

“Rumors?” Ryo repeated, his heart stopping. It was spreading already? New tears sprang to his eyes. “I.. I can't even prevent something like that!”

Eric frowned and leaned down, resting his forehead against Ryo's. "You can't stop people from gossiping, Ryo..." he murmured.

“I.. I know,” Ryo said, sniffling and wiping away a trail of snot. “It's just... I didn't think anyone would know...” Ryo looked down, more tears sliding down his cheeks. “What are they saying?!”

Eric looked away. "That he's been attacked. That he collapsed. That he nearly drowned...all kinds of stuff." But luckily no one had guessed what had really happened.

“Do you want.... want to know what r-r-really happened?” Ryo said, leaning back to look up at Eric. He needed to confide in someone. “Can you keep it a secret?”

Eric looked at him. He already knew what had happened, but he couldn't tell Ryo that. "S-Sure...you don't have to tell me if you don't want to though...."

“I... I need to talk to someone,” Ryo said, his face scrunching up in emotional pain. “I.. I....I can trust you.” He wiped his face with his uniform sleeve and gave a small smile.

Eric felt his heart shatter in his chest, the guilt of what he had done becoming overwhelming. "Then talk to me," he whispered, not letting his emotions show on the outside. Ryo couldn't know...he could never know. He just hoped to God that Kyo never told him...

Ryo looked around them, taking a deep breath, and leaned closer. “Aniki.... he...,” He said as his lip trembled with emotion. “He was....was....r-raped...” He was barely able to get the words out loud enough for Eric to hear.  

Eric frowed, hoping that he looked surprised. "Is.....Is he ok?" he asked softly, truly worried and curious. The last he had seen of Kyo was right after the...what he had done. Kyo bleeding and crying on the floor. His heart clenched and he had to look away.

“I'm not... sure,” Ryo said, looking at Eric with a lost expression. “Aniki... he won't talk that much and I have to make sure he eats.... He... looks so...” He trailed off, his tears getting the best of him as he started to cry. He brought his arm up to cover his face.

Eric looked away, guilt overwhelming him again. Tears came to his eyes. "I'm sorry." he whispered, repeating it softly again before he reached forward and pulled Ryo into his arms again. He blinked the tears away, putting up the shield so that his emotions wouldn't be read.

“It's not.. not your fault..” Ryo said between his sobs as he broke down again. He could just see what the doctors said of how they found his brother, broken and bleeding on the floor. “I... I'll..k-kill the b-bas-s-stard! I-I... promise!”

Eric felt his stomach bottom out in fear at those words and he hoped to god that Ryo wouldn't find out that he was the one that had hurt Kyo.

-*-

The rest of the day was a blur to Ryo, all he could focus on was when he could go home and see Kyo again. He need to make sure his brother was still there, safe as possible. “Aniki?” He called when he stepped into their home, pulling his shoes off with little effort. He walked inside, going down the hall to the guest bedroom.

Sweat covered Kyo's body and he breathed harshly, tossing restlessly. In his mind he was in the locker room again, Eric looming over him and taking his body again. The fear had returned, the desperation to get away returning as well.

“Aniki?” Ryo called, seeing his brother in the bed toss. He moved to the side of the bed, noticing Kyo was in a the throws of a dream. He wasn't sure if he should wake him up or not.

Kyo groaned in his sleep, a name leaving his lips under his breath. "Please. Stop. I don't want this...not like this. Please," he begged, clutching the sheets harder and pulling at them.

“Aniki?!” Ryo said a bit louder, reaching out to touch Kyo gently on the arm. “Aniki!”

Kyo tore away from Ryo's touch and tears began falling. "Don't! Stop! PLEASE!"

Ryo's hear shattered then and there, and he reached out, clamoping his hands on Kyo' sshoudlers to shake the boy awake. “Aniki! A-Aniki! It's me, R-Ryo!” He cried, pain bitting at his heart.

Kyo's eyes shot open and he looked wildly around the room before he focused on Ryo. A sob left his lips and he grabbed the front of Ryo's shirt, pulling him into a tight hug and crying heavily against the other.

“Aniki!” Ryo called out, holding his brother closely and petting his tussled hair. “It's a-alright! I'm here, don't worry!”

Kyo sobbed into Ryo's shoulder, clutching to his brother for dear life. "Make them stop. The dreams. Make them stop," he pleaded breathlessly, fear evident in his voice.

Ryo kissed the side of Kyo's head and sobbed himself, his heart breaking more at his brother's fear. “It's okay,” was all he could utter, petting and holding Kyo tighter. He couldn't say that he could make them stop, but he would give anything to do that simple wish for his brother.

"Stay with me," Kyo whispered, pulling away from Ryo enough to look up into his eyes. The red irises pleaded with him, fear still shining in them.

There wasn't a second thought in Ryo's mind as he nodded, laying them both down and holding Kyo tightly in his arms. “It's alright,” Ryo said again, daring to kiss Kyo on the cheek as he rubbed Kyo's arm with on of his hands. “I'll stay with you. I'll keep you safe.”

Kyo nodded and curled up against Ryo, pushing his fear back and letting his brother comfort him. "Thank you. I'm sorry," he whispered, burying his face into Ryo's neck.

“You don't need to be sorry,” Ryo said, petting Kyo gently and sniffling. “I should be sorry, for not being there for you. I should have went to practice with you!...I...I always go.. a-and watch you.”

Kyo shook his head. "You couldn't have stopped it. He's...he was stronger than me. I couldn't...I couldn't stop him..."

“But...” Ryo said softly, his lip quivering as he kissed the top of Kyo's head. “If I was there, there would have been two of us.... I.. I could have gotten help... It... it mi-might not have happened...”

Kyo let a sob leave his lips before he could stop it. "I don't want you...I wouldn't want you to see me like that..." he whispered, his voice shaking, "I wish you didn't have to see me like this now."

Ryo held Kyo tighter to his chest, breathing in deeply to stop his own sobs at his brother's words. “I'm-I'm glad no-nothing worse happened,” he said, his tears leaking out and staining the pillow over top of Kyo's already dried tears. “I-I wouldn't know what I'd do... if...i-if...”

Kyo shook his head at the thought and held Ryo closer. "Don't think about it."

Nodding, Ryo sighed into Kyo's hair and let his tears roll down his cheeks. “It'll be alright,” he reasoned as he kissed his brother's head again. “I'll stay with you forever.”

Kyo nodded and held Ryo closer. "I love you." He pressed himself as close to Ryo as possible, keeping his fear at bay and letting himself be comforted.

They were so close it was almost like they were living with the same heart beating between them. “I love you too,” Ryo said, petting Kyo gently and lovingly. “I'll stay here.”

Kyo nodded and closed his eyes, trying to drift off to sleep as the tears began drying on his face. He just hoped that he wouldn't have the dreams again.

“I love you,” Ryo whispered again, letting Kyo's warmth lull his emotionally exhausted body to sleep. The next day, Ryo didn't go to school.

Please tell me you have the story in full laying around somewhere on an old hard drive and please tell me you'd be willing to send it to me because I get the strangest cravings every couple of years to reread this but since Fujifox deactivated her account I can't read half of the series.
