"It may not be eight yet, but you should have been home," Ara scolded. "It's been hours since school ended." Ara felt a small mite of control seep back into his brain as Max filed into the car. He slid into the passenger seat, surreptitiously checking Max's seatbelt before fastening his own and starting the car. He took a deep breath before he maneuvered out of the parking lot.

The drive home was oddly, uncomfortably silent for Ara. True, he was giving Max a sort of silent treatment, but it wasn't really like his brother to return it full force. Everything about the younger boy's posture and expression made the older's skin crawl. Ara cleared his throat as he pulled into the driveway and put the car in park. "From now on, Max," he started, "I absolutely need to know where you are at all times. Right when you get out of school, you text me exactly where you are going and exactly what you are going to do there. I mean it. No exceptions." He didn't wait for a response before getting out and starting toward the house, steeling himself for whatever chaos had been created in their absence.

He was very well shocked when the house was almost completely silent. Not suspicious enough to break the silence, Ara didn't announce his arrival. The quiet was too good to pass up, so he sank into a dining room chair and reveled in it. His stomach growled angrily, reminding him that he hadn't eaten dinner after classes before collapsing in his bed. The night before had been an eventful shift, just as that night promised to be in a mere couple of hours. He kicked off his flip-flops under the table and began shuffling to the fridge, his mind temporarily, blissfully, blank.
