He was quite pleased with his presentation for Ali, and despite asking if he wanted gravy, he asked he'd say no, which is why he kept it in the jug, just incase. As expected, he denied it, "Gravy is too...messy makes food mix", as he simply shrugged, before taking the jug and pouring some gravy over his taters and sausages. Joseph for one loved to add some taste to his food, whether it was spices, herbs or sauce, and with the addition of the onion with the gravy meaty taste, it made the food even tastier. Though, everyone had their own opinion, and would be a bad idea to change what Ali has been used to.

"Selene was....Loud..she was loud...why?", Ali asked. "It's what you call "having the mards", not getting what they want", Joseph explained, "People can accept things and let things slide a few times, but some people cannot. That's why Selene barged her way in, since she wanted to have it her way". Explaining about it made it seem bad, which it was, but Selene wasn't always the "bad-type". Perhaps this was some sort of test to see how solid their relationship was, before moving on and regretting it. He simply couldn't believe what he was thinking.

Joseph kept his priorities on top, making sure he organised himself well, making sure he had time to do what was needed. He just wished Selene would understand, as he ate more of his mash, which was indeed delicious.

Ali listened to Joe as he explained about Selene and explained how she wanted to get her own way, but that didn't give her any reason to shout because things were not going her way. When Ali got upset he would pull his hair or lash out depending on how upset he was or even depending on the situation if there happened to be loud noises he would cover his ears and hum loudly doing anything to drown the noise out ironic as it sounded.

" people can't always have their way...and they should use inside voices...way to loud otherwise" Ali replied as he finished the sausages and finished off the potatoes. " will Selene come again?" he replied his voice sounding nervous he was worried that if she came back she would burst into the house again and start shouting at everyone.

Looking around the room as he ate checking his watch ever so often, he didn't always rely on his watch since his parents would tell him what was happening, when he figured out how time worked he was given a watch and it has stayed on his wrist since.

"people can't always have their way...and they should use inside voices...way to loud otherwise" was Ali's response which made Joseph smile, "Couldn't agree with you more". It sure would prevent many headaches, that was for sure, as he moved onto his sausages. Yum!

"will Selene come again?", Ali asked. It was a reasonable question, and a question on his mind also. After he had eaten the sausage he had, so he could speak without his mouth being full, he then looked up to Ali, "I don't know. I wasn't even expecting her to come here, so I have no idea". Though he loved her, he didn't like how she was acting recently, and by how Ali was acting during her appearance, seeing that she was not expected or part of his routine, her return wasn't anticipated. Why on earth were mobiles invented, if people didn't use them? She had his number...why couldn't she of phoned? Girls!

Ali listened to Joe as he ate the late remains of Mash potatoe into his mouth, he wasn't sure wether Selene would be back here again. Humming softly Ali looked at his watch and spoke.

" can I watch tv now ?..ate all my dinner" he tapped his hands as he thought about what he could do, he could do some calculus work with the tv in the back ground or do some puzzles. Thinking about it he didn't really have that many puzzles left they might have to make an outing to the toy shop in town, they always had a few new puzzles and interesting things Chinese puzzles were hard to put together since most of them had small parts that pulled out and had to be removed so they couldnt be redone.

As he wrapped up his dinner with him finishing his sausages and onions which were absolutely delicious, Ali then asked if he could watch tv now. Once his mouth was empty, he then nodded, "Sure", before thinking about the whole ordeal with Selene, still dwelling on Ali's question about whether she would return. Shaking the thoughts away as best as he could, he took the pots and put them on the shelf in the hatch, before entering the kitchen and filling a bowl of soupy water, before taking them and scrubbing them all clean. Why she did have to be so awkward? Now he was still thinking about her, despite how annoying she was. Joseph sighed, why couldn't she be like the way when he first met her....she was so sweet, so kind, wonderful dates, warming his heart, and now with her demanding, she was forcing him to choose her or his life, his work, and now that also included his brother, who he could not leave alone. Maybe she would understand if she knew the facts...then again, she didn't give him a chance to explain. Sigh.

After he finished the dishes and all was neat and tidy, he then grabbed his phone and tried calling Selene, but time and time again, there was no answer. Here she was moaning because she wasn't hearing anything and not understanding how busy he was, and now he was giving her the attention, she wasn't responding. Why did she have to be so difficult? Passing her by and not dwelling on it anymore, he referred to his texts and emails, answering them swiftly. Afterall, it was quite a busy time. Though this was the second day, he'd have to return into his work routine soon, and he had yet to decide whether he should move Ali to his place, or help him with things that he cannot do if he could, though to do that, he needed to do more reading.....

The week had gone well with Ali and Joe working together, they had set out a nice easy routine and since Joe was not at work they had time to find out a lot more about each other. Ali had quite a busy day at school there was a class meeting with everyone talking about what they had enjoyed this week and what they hadn't enjoyed as well as what they were looking forward to over the weekend.

There had been no problems with Ali being made fun off which was great obviously the bullies had decided that teasing Ali had gotten boring. Checking his watch he held Carols hand as she led him to the empty playground he looked around for Joe's car but he couldnt see it anywhere, his grip tightened on Carol's hand and he hummed. " it's okay Ali Joe will be here soon " she reassured him giving his hand a soft squeeze.

Shaking his head Ali hummed again his weight shifting from foot to foot. " Late...Late...no no no no" he mumbled softly as he pulled his hair.

After leaving Joe's house, Selene debated what to do. All the time, she thought about what Joe said. How he said he was too busy, had alot on his mind, yet he had time to go MacDonalds and have himself a snack, aswell as not going work. How much of that freedom time could of been spent with her. Curious, she decided that she'll visit him in a couple of days, which she did so, but when she arrived, she saw Joe pull off in his car, so she followed closely behind, wondering where he was going.

It was then that she saw a young boy leave out of his car and go in with this woman, before seeing Joe leave off. Who was that young boy? Why was he with him and not her? What was he to him? Was he seeing him now, instead of her? A college boy? She closed her eyes. No, she would not be replaced. She had to find out who exactly he was, and she knew exactly how she would. If Joe wasn't going to let on, then maybe this boy might.

So, she then started putting her little devious plans into action, and making sure he had a nice workload, aswell as get a few people to slow him down, while she pulled up to the school, and saw the empty playground with that woman and that boy. If something was going on between Joe and that boy, what boy could not resist the beauty of a woman, and beauty was exactly what Selene had.

Now for the show, as she stepped out the car, then went back in to make sure her lips looked appealing, before stepping out once again and walking over to him, her legs screaming to be seen through her tights, while her jumper fell down a little to show a little of her upper body, but no cleverage as such. Afterall, she was at school.

She lifted her tinted glasses up so they were on her forehead, pushing her silky hair back, so her dark green eyes looked at the lad, while a sweet smile crept upon her face. Her arm outstretched towards him, and keeping herself looking friendly, she then spake, "I've come to pick you up today. Joe's being held back at work, so I've come instead. I'll take you home".

" i've come to pick you up today, Joe's being held back at work, so i've come instead. I'll take you home"

Instinctively backing away Ali shook his head quickly, he didn't want to go with Selene he was worried that she was going to shout and become angry at him since the last time Ali saw Selene she was very loud and he didn't want that at all.

Grabbing onto his hair again he spoke " no cant...Joe...comes not..not you" he tapped his hands quickly humming softly. Looking at his watch it was way past 3:05 Ali began to panic he had to get home but he didn't want to go with Selene.

Carol placed a hand on Ali's shoulder speaking slowly into his ear." Ali...calm down its all right if Joe can't come....you can go with this lady here she knows where you both live all right?" she smiled softly trying to get Ali to look at her but as always it never worked. " what do you think ?" she asked.

Ali thought for a while his feet moving from side to side before he nodded quickly " Kay" he mumbled.

Selene was great at putting on a performance. Being able to have words simply roll off her tongue, and looking the part aswell. She may of acted all innocent and genuine, yet she was the opposite. Maybe not complete opposite, but this whole affair forced her to take such action.

The lad then pulled back as she approach, grabbing his hair and shaking his head, "no cant...Joe...comes not..not you". Well, it at least confirmed that the two were together, though still unclear in what way. Maybe the two were in cohoots. She wasn't that scary surely, but stunningly attractive, expecting men to come closer rather than back away, or perhaps she'd over done it, and she was too stunning. Maybe so.

Her ears perked up as she heard the women ask "Ali" to calm down, and how he could go with her. Looks like her acting paid off, and then gave a smile as Ali agreed. It was all working pretty well, and there was no sign of Joe coming, which meant no interruptions, as she then opened the car door for him, "Come on then Ali....let's get you home", pleased with herself, though her face didn't show that. It had worked better than she thought.

Once inside, "Strap yourself in", not looking if he had or not, before turning the ignition off and pulling away. She didn't speak until the school was no longer in sight, in which she then asked, "So Ali.....Tell me......How old are you?...Got any girlfriends?". She decided not to dive in straight away, but at least see how he responds to a genuine question first.

Ali pulled the seat belt across his chest, closing the car door afterwards. He put his bag on his lap and watched and the time on his watch quickly ticked away,humming softly he looked out the window making sure that Selene was going the right way.

" so Ali...Tell me...how old are you?..Got any girlfriends?"

Shaking his head Ali spoke " I have friends...who are girls....but not...not in a close way..." he explained checking his watch again and looking out the window again " Seventeen" he added tapping his hands again he watched everything go by there wasn't a lot of stress going on in his mind but with Joe not there and Selene driving him home it was certainly building up. He thought about wether Joe called Selene and told her to pick Ali up or wether Selene found out where Ali went to school.

"I have friends...who are girls....but not...not in a close way...", Ali responded, before looking away. Maybe he didn't like the topic she was on, or simply did not wish to speak to her, before he added how old he was. "Seventeen, and a handsome boy like you. You joshing me?", as a smirk appeared on her face.

She was in two minds whether to take him home or to hers to wait for Joe. No doubt Joe would realise she had him once he reaches the school, though if she did not take him towards his home, then Ali might be unresponsive, so she'd keep her cool for now.

"Do you have anyone you are close to?", she asked, guessing what answer he may tell her, though he could be wrong. Afterall, the last she had seen Joe, he was all over her, and then his work, then suddenly this attractive young lad enters the frey, Who was he?

"seventeen, and a handsome boy like you. You joshing me?"

Ali thought at the last part of the sentence, why would she put someone's name in the middle of a sentence but make it sound like a question? He clicked his fingers together as he thought about it further but Selene asked him something else.

" do you have anyone your close to?"

Again he tapped and clicked his fingers as he watched the scenery pass by as he thought of an answer. " no...me and..Joe live together...your close to Joe aren't you? What does 'Joshing' mean?" he asked looking over to Selene as she drove as well as checking to see if they were going the right way. So far so good.

It seemed he hadn't responded to her compliment, but instead clicked his fingers together which was strangely odd. Guess he was a musician of sorts, or liked the sound of music and making his own tune, seeing that he done so again after asking if he was close to anyone.

As expected, the answer was Joe, "me and..Joe live together", but the question on her mind was why? Sometimes she thought about things too much and could get carried away, so she was hoping she was wrong, though if she was right, it certainly explained alot. Then he asked if she was close to Joe, well, that was a difficult question, seeing that they were once, before certain things got in the way, and she was unsure whether he was one of those certain things.

"What does "Joshing" mean?", Ali then asked. "Joshing...Joking, taking the pickle", she explained, "That's the thing about schools. They teach you things they think you outta know, but not the real things you need to know. All those lessons I've had, yet you only needed just a little bit of what they tell ya, unless you be one of them". Yes she was ranting on again, and that tended to happen when she had alot on her mind.

As far as discussing her relationship with Joe, that was her own business, especially if she couldn't respond so effectively, not knowing what was going on, since he appeared to be avoiding her, so instead of answering, she asked about them living together, "So you guys live together huh? What you think of Joe then?", as she flicked the ignitor ready to go round the roundabout.

They had turned from the roundabout, they were close to home now. Ali was still on edge a little due to the late pick up but knowing that he would be home soon made him feel at ease.

" so you guys live together huh? What do you think of Joe then?"

The question was hard for Ali to answer since he didn't understand his own emotions as well as others so therefore didn't know how to describe people. Clicking his fingers again he tilted his head before speaking " Joe is....." he paused he knew what he wanted to say about Joe that he was kind and understanding, he would explain things to Ali when he didn't understand them. So how could he really describe him, he hated when hismind didn't work the way he wanted it to but of course his mind didn't know that. " Joe is...good to me..." he mumbled looking outside as home came into view giving a soft sigh he looked as Joe's car was already there Joe leaning against the bonnet with an upset look on his face.

A week had gone by now, and the two had got to know each other pretty well. When he first heard he was to take care of his brother who he'd never met, he thought it would be difficult, first letting them know about their parents and the fact that he was taking control over him, but it was not the case. There were some things that were hard to do, due to Ali's autism, but he had learnt a fair bit and the routine in place was solid, though in doing so, he felt he was living his parents' life rather than his own, living his own and his parents' lives at once, and he wished to change that, and move on. The question was..Ali.

He had not returned to work, and had much to catchup on, not to mention the conferences he had to attend and lead. It seemed they had managed well in his absense, but there was still a fair amount to do, until losing track of time, so he rushed to his car, but unfortunately, there was diverted traffic and the movement was slow. Checking the time, he phoned up the school and got in touch with Carol, who told him that Selene came to pick him up. How could she!

Joe thanked her, before taking another route and heading home. When he got there, he parked his car outside, but didn't see Selene or her car anywhere, so he got out of his car and leant against the bonnet, wondering where she was, until she saw her pull up and grabbed her as she got out, but instead of shouting, he leaned close to her ear, "How dare you?! What you think your doing!", hissing so he weren't being loud.


Image

"Joe is.....Joe is...good to me...", he responded in a mumble before looking outside. Was speaking to her boring or something. Who was he to Joe, so she decided to ask before they arrived, seeing as she could see Joe from a distance, so she hadn't much time, "Good to you, is he? How did the two of you meet?". She'd probably have to play this stunt again to get more information. What interested her would be Joe's reaction.

As soon as she parked up and got out the car once Ali had, she locked up and then Joe was holding her. When was the last time he had done that, as she gave a cheesy grin, before he then spoke in her ear, clearly with anger in his tone, "How dare you?! What you think your doing!", in which she responded with a snare, "Me? Only doing what every responsible adult would do, to pick up their young ones on time".

She begun to chuckle, "At least it was worth it. When was the last time you held be in such a way".

Image

Oh, she frustrated him sometimes, and really annoyed him now, "Go home Selene", before turning away and walking towards the door, calling out, "Come on Ali", as he put his key through the door, before she could annoy him again.

" good to you is he? Where did the two of you meet?"

Ali didn't really hear the question he was more concerned about getting into the house and with Joe being there it was much easier for him to calm down. In fact as soon as the car slowed he literally jumped out shutting the car door he stood still tapping his hands together and humming softly he wanted to be somewhere safe and home was the safest place at the moment. Looking at his watch he groaned loudly grabbing his hair, time wasn't going right it was almost time fore dinner and Ali hadn't sat down yet or done a puzzle and he was thirsty.

He watched carefully as Joe held onto Selene and said something into her ear, she seemed happy and Joe seemed angry too. Perhaps Selene should not have taken Ali home but Joe was late and he couldn't go home with Carol.

His feet shifted from side to side he looked up as Joe spoke. " come on Ali" Ali nodded quickly and entered the house taking of his shoes and coat taking off his bag he sat down tapping his hands together and rocking back and forth.

( well have to Get Selene really, into finding out about Ali and Joe or she could just barge in as she would hehe)

Selene's intervention in his affairs surely annoyed him, but kept calm and spoke quietly in order to not rise tensions for Ali. Selene found the whole affair amusing, but now he knew that she was keeping a close watch on him, to know he was back at work, and where Ali was. She was getting to be quite the pain, and he was unsure how to act back, seeing that she couldn't trust his word and allow him to explain. Instead, she wished to find out herself and not be patient and then enjoy it. When he phoned Carol and she told him Selene picked him up, she knew she wouldn't do anything drastic like take him away, but if it was anything else, then how much of a failure would he of been.

Opening the doors to home as Ali rushed in and took his stuff off, he turned outside to see Selene give a wave at him before driving off. She was such a nice and beautiful girl, yet why on Earth would she act like this? Closing the door, he then turned to take his own stuff off, before seeing Ali rock forwards and backwards, no doubt worried about the routine going out of whack. If he got up late back in his own place and had so many minutes to get to work, he'd pop into MacDonalds for a McMuffin and have it with some coffee at work, but for those with autism, it was alot harder when what is planned isn't done. He sat beside him and put his arm round him, "It's ok Ali", using his free hand to bring up his own watch, "Shall we go chippy tonight?", pausing, seeing as going out would be changing the routine too, as he held him closer, "Just a drive away, get what we want, come home, eat and throw away, no dishes, all sorted", which should put the routine back on track.

Ali mumbled to himself his hands rubbing together, he jumped slightly as Joe put his arm around him as explained that they could go to the chippy. 'chippy' was a word Ali recognised his father used to use it and they went together to get fish and chips once a month so Ali wouldn't get stressed out.

He looked at Joe's watch as well as his own, fifteen minutes till dinner. Time was going to fast and everything was going wrong today, he was having a good day and school but with the late pick up and the way to close to call dinner that was there, Ali felt as if everything was breaking down around him. Grabbing onto his hair he pulled it sharply " but fifteen minutes Joe....1 minutes to get ready....6 minutes to go there...2 minutes to get there....6 minutes to get back...that's fourteen minutes....." he explained his hands clicking frantically he still rocked slowly, tapping his head and yanking his hair " too close Joe! Too close!...." he moaned.

Despite trying to comfort him after the routine was going out of whack, and him telling him the solution, yet despite him being round him and explaining, he still wasn't happy, "but fifteen minutes Joe". Well, going chippy was the easy and quickest solution. If he wanted it quicker, than he can settle for salad, as it would only take five minutes, though highly doubted that there was any in.

"too close Joe! Too close!....", and it would be even closer the more minutes they sat there, yet he couldn't leave him like it, but would be alot quicker on his own. How on earth did his parents deal with it? course it was easy for them, there was two of em, and with alternate shifts, there was always someone in to take care of everything. For him, he was on his own and had only had a week experience of dealing with it all compared to 17 years which they had.

On the routine, dinner was 5:00 till 6:30, a whole hour and a half to consume the food, yet compared to their other meals, chippy was all simply yet still stressed him out. Just worrying over a few minutes was enough to stress him out. Made him wonder if his parents rushed around to make sure everything was timed right, like he saw himself doing. "If it's not chippy, then I have to cook something and it'll take even longer", providing other options and showing which was best as if he was back in the conference again and making an agreement, "Now, I'll go out and get us dinner while you watch TV. I'll be right back, since I'll help cut those minutes down a bit to make sure it's done in time", as he stood up, ready to leave so no more minutes were lost, "Now what would you like? Fish? Saveloy? Fishcake? Sausage?".

Once Ali told him, he then nodded, "Be right back, okay?", before he opened the door and went towards the car, only to hear the door slam behind him. He looked around and saw Selene's car, and then back to the door, as he listened in, before knocking on the door, stopping himself from banging, "Selene. Don't be stupid now. Let me in", trying to remain as calm as possible. Today was not his day at all.

Selene wasn't someone that takes it so kindly to be told to "Go home", so instead, she found herself an excuse to return as she popped round the corner to the chippy to force herself in, before hearing a commotion at the door which she smiled to. Not only was she annoyed that Joe sent her away in such a way, but Ali didn't answer her question as to how they met, and not getting what she desired was not something she liked.

Pulling to the side, she saw Joe step out, before pushing open the door and barging her way in before shutting the door before Joe realised, since he'd no doubt spot her car. "So we meet again Ali", putting on her smile, "He's terrible isn't he? Has no idea how to do things right?", talking about Joe as he then heard a knock with his voice that followed, "Selene. Don't be stupid now. Let me in".

She sighed then pulled a frown towards Ali, "You hear that Ali...Joe called me stupid", before leaning her cheek against the door nearabouts where his was from where his voice was coming from, before she tutted, "First your late and now can't even provide dinner, and now wasting your time on little ol' me. Now get going, dinner's not going to just appear you know", before walking away.

Selene couldn't help but give a cheeky smile, before revealing her chip bag, as her finger touched her lip, "You want dinner, don't you? Come on, I won't bite. I hate to disappoint", as he opened each door till he found the room with a nice table in the center, before putting the bag down and then entering the kitchen to find two plates, opening one cupboard and then the next, before going in and taking charge.

She didn't take rejection very well.

Ali pulled his hair again shaking his head quickly as Joe spoke. Nothing was sounding right to him at all and he hated that feeling of no control, humming loudly he clicked his fingers his eyes looking around the room as Joe got up the door closed and Selene walked in holding a bag of chips in her hand.

Groaning he stood up pacing the room mumbling to himself shaking his head as he walked up and down the room, Selene shouldn't have been here Joe was meant to be here not her he had to get dinner, he could hear Selene clattering about in the kitchen obviously trying to find plates for dinner. He had to have dinner with Joe that's how it had been and that's how it had to be.

Pulling at his hair yanking a few of the black strands out of his scalp, obviously Ali didn't understand pain so hardly noticed the fistfuls of hair he was pulling out of his head, he looked out of the window Selene's car was outside and so was Joe's but Joe was outside a strange look on his face that Ali couldn't decipher.

" no....no no no no...." he mumbled walking into the hallway the Diningroom to the right of him the front door to the left and his mind buzzing over the right decision would he let Joe in or go to Selene to have dinner. The key was in the front door obviously where Selene had locked Joe out of the house grumbling to himself he pulled his hair sharply and turned the key quickly and opened the door. He sat on the floor his hands clamped on his head and over his ears pulling his hair as he mumbled to himself staring at the floor.
