Author's Notes: slight hints of yaoi and incest, but only slight
Kadaj never ate with us. He always said he needed to be alone, that mother spoke to him at night.
Loz sat next to me on the floor, his knee touching mine as we watched him walk away, his plate discarded and still full. "He's not eating again," Loz said.
"Hmm." I don't know what he wanted me to say. We were not supposed to play parents to Kadaj, not that Loz would have made a good parent. He was little more than a child himself, but the worry in my older brother's voice was enough to make me drop my fork down to my plate and turn to look at him.
He was pretending to be very interested in her food, his eyes never lifting from it as he moved the food around over and over again, making patterns in the rice. I reached out, grabbing his hand, my fingers intertwining with his.
The fork in his hand dropped to his plate with a clang as he looked up to meet my eyes. I lifted his hand to my lips, brushing softly, trying to comfort him. "Kadaj....will be alright. He always is. He is more than a mere child."
Loz didn't really believe me, I could see it in his eyes, but he accepted my words with a smile, squeezing my hand with his slightly before releasing it, running his hand over my hair. "Don't go getting too smart, Yazoo. You'll both be leaving me behind then, leaving me by myself."
"That'll never happen, Loz. I'll never leave you behind."
