Chapter Thirty-One: Trouble! (part 1)
I stare at my older brother Henry, my jaw dropping o the ground, it's been two years since my brother left for Italy.
Here he is, in front of me, with his brown hair messy as always, and he was grinning from ear to ear.
I took my time staring at him, he had his hands in his pockets, and he looked as smart and handsome as ever.
Henry is three years older than me, he has graduated from Harvard, and now he was one of the most known billionaires too, just like my father.
He has always been a nerd, but that did not stop girls from drooling over him, due to his looks and charm, and his kind personality, He had his glasses on and he had a black suit on which really suited him.
He is married and has a cute son named Sam when Henry hasn't left for his business trips, Sam was nearly two years old, meaning Sam could be Four by now, and he would be able to talk and call me 'uncle', and I can't wait to see him.
Henry's chuckle interrupted my daydreaming and I smiled at my brother, he walked towards me and put his arms around me, I did too and smiled into his shoulder, since he was a little bit taller than me, he patted my back and sighed.
"It's so good to see you bro" I mumbled, and sighed from relief.
"It's good to see you too, Rich, how have you been?" Henry said, as he pulled away to stare at my eyes, he smiled at me and I smiled back.
"I've been good, but.." I trailed off, unable to explain the situation I am in right now, I bit my lower lip and sighed, thinking of Kristen hurt so bad that I could feel my heart aching for her.
If only I haven't been such a playboy, then I would have had Kristen by my side right now, I would have had the girl I love the most by my side.
"But what?" Henry asked, confused as he stared at the three of us, I have forgotten that my parents are in the same room as us.
"He's married, but another girl is pregnant from him" My father's icy voice made the ache in my heart deeper.
"Oh, are you sure it's yours?" Henry asked me, I opened my mouth to talk but then closed it again, because honestly I was not sure of anything in life right now.
"He doesn't deny it" My mother said sadly as he stared at me, I swallowed and looked away, I don't blame them, this is entirely my fault.
"So your plan is, to lock him up here forever?" Henry snaps at my father making me flinch, he is not the rebellious son, he has always obeyed my parents, I have always been the rebellious son. Seeing Henry like this made me think he might be really mad right now.
"Do you have a better plan?" My father snaps back, Henry runs his hands through his hair and sighs as he stares at me sadly, I try to smile at him but all I can manage is some weird movement with my lips.
"He's coming with me" Henry whispers, and grabs me by my forearm.
"Where the hell do you think you're taking him?" My father says angrily, as he grabs my other forearm two, and here I am between two really mad men, and I have no idea what to do.
"To my house, where there is no judgment, no stupid comments and remarks, he's still young for God's sake Dad, it's okay for him to make mistakes" Henry says, his voice shows pure irritation and pity for me.
I know he thinks he can protect me like this, but this is not just a mistake, look where it got me.
"What type of mistake is this? Do you know how stupid he made me look in front of all my friends?" My father shouts the last part, and it makes me flinch, I say nothing as my father and brother argue for awhile.
I don't know why Henry defends me, but my father is right.
"I'll take him to my house, and I won't let him meet anyone and especially not Kristen, are you happy now?" Henry snaps, and exhales slowly"
"Fine, but if he meets Kristen I'll-"
"Okay Okay Dad, I won't let him"
"Promise me, Kristen's family are very important to me, they don't want Richard around their daughter now"
"I promise Dad"
And just like that, I'm being dragged out of the house, and Henry is driving us to his own house,
"I'm sorry I wasn't able to come to your wedding" Henry interrputs the uncomfortable silence in his car, making me smile despite all the feelings I have right now.
I stare at him and pat his arm, I've really missed my wise brother.ns 18.104.22.168da2
