Oh brother o' mine

by Jennings Alverson | Score: 3650

His brother is dead. It's hard to swallow, as he sits there in a bench in the library, that the person he grew up with is dead. He wants revenge. He wants it so badly. Nothing makes his heart hurt more than his last words: "I love you, you know that, don't you?".

Of course he did, his brother had been the person that raised him. He clings to the safety googles the man gave him in his 10th birthday as tightly as he can. Peter had noticed how much he loved to do risky things and decided to buy it for him as a joke. It had been a rare gift, as Peter worked as an illustrator and didn't have the best pay. He barely made enough to pay the bills, so birthday gifts were a treasure.

The plane crash hadn't been an accident. It was planned, someone decided to murder his brother and had sent him a little card telling him to look out for himself, because he was going to be the next. Another tiny envelope with an usb drive came with the card, filled with things Peter had been doing that he didn't have any knowledge about.

Yes, maybe Peter wasn't as innocent as he thought. But his death would be avenged.
