Hello! Here is the first real chapter! Hope you like it! Thank you to whoever reviewed! I didn't think i would get any so you definitely made my day :)
*Note this chapter takes place kinda right after josh moves in so the boys kind of know each other at this point and get along. P.S. I think irritatedly should be a word.
Disclaimer: I do not own anything! I wish I did but I don't…sad day
"Sometimes Drake disgusts me! You know I don't think he has ever actually cared about a girl! It's gross!" Josh said storming into the house with his dad following behind him.
"What did Drake do now?" Walter asked shutting the door and hanging up his jacket. Drake had gone to a band member's house after school to drop off some new music so he had picked Josh up from school
"He was making out with this blonde girl in the hallway at school when mid-kiss he sees some hot brunette girl walk by. All he says is 'see ya!' before he takes off after the brunette! Drake has no respect what-so-ever!" Josh irritatedly huffed.
"Come on, he's not that bad." Walter tried to defend his new step-son.
"He has no sense of what a man's honor is" Josh said sitting on the couch.
"Now Josh, I think he has a better understanding than you think, he just shows it differently." Walter said sitting in the chair next to the couch.
"What do you mean?" Josh asked confused.
"Well I know you have only just gotten to know Drake but let me tell you something, that boy is like a pit-bull! He can be extremely protective." Walter said confidently, easing back into the seat.
"Pffft yea right! The only thing Drake is protective of is his guitar and his hair." Josh scoffed rolling his eyes.
"I never told you about the first time I met Drake though." Walter said cringing a bit at the memory.
"Dad I was there, you and I both met for lunch to meet Drake and Megan for the first time. Granted I already knew Drake." Josh said with an even more disbelieving and confused look on his face.
"Well, you see…that wasn't exactly the first time I met Drake Parker. I actually met him about a month after I started dating Audrey." Josh's Dad explained.
"Why didn't you tell me?"
"Drake made me swear not to tell anyone he had visited me or he would make sure I woke up in a foreign country where no one new English and without my shoes." Walter said slightly embarrassed at having been intimidated by his step-son.
'Now I know where Megan get's it from' Josh thought.
"It was not my most courageous moment." Walter shamefully admitted.
Walter walked through the door of his apartment that he shared with his young pre-teen son Josh. He placed his brief case on the entry table and made his way into the living room. He was about to sit down when his phone went off.
"Hey Dad! I'm working on a project with Eric for our civics class and his mom invited me to stay for dinner. Is that alright?"
"Yea sure! Have fun and be back before 10!"
Walter again was about to sit down when there was a knock on the door. With a wondering and somewhat hesitant look he slowly walked back over to the door.
"I wonder who that could be?" He said out loud.
As he was walking the person knocked again and kept knocking impatiently. Walter opened the door and was not expecting who was standing there in the doorway. It was a young, fairly attractive brown haired boy about his son's age. He looked strangely familiar but he couldn't put a name to the face. The teenager was holding a picture in his hand. Walter noticed it was his weather forecast profile picture. How did this kid get that?
"Can I help you?" Walter asked still completely lost at the situation.
The boy looked at him, then the picture, then back up at him. All of a sudden he smirked and straightened up giving him a few extra inches in height.
"Yea, you are definitely Josh's dad." He said pushing Walter aside and walking into the apartment.
"Are you one of Josh's friends?" Walter questioned
"No Walter Nichols, I'm Drake Parker and you are dating my mom Audrey." Drake said his face turning deadly serious in an instant. He had a slight glare in his eyes that seemed to burn into Walters.
"Uh ummm well it's nice to finally meet you! Your mom has told me a lot about you and your little sister." Walter said extending his hand out for Drake to shake. When Drake just crossed his arms and made no move to shake his hand Walter lowered his hand.
"Umm if you don't mind me asking, why are you here? And how did you get that picture?" Walter asked wanting answers.
"I have my ways." Drake smirked mysteriously. "And I wanted to have a little talk with you."
Walter gulped "Why don't we sit down?"
"I'm fine here"
'stupid voice cracking! Why am I nervous, I'm the adult here' He thought waiting for his girlfriend's son to continue.
"First things first, you will not tell anyone I came here or that we have met unless you want to wake up in a non English speaking country with no shoes." Drake said in a tone that made Walter believe the kid would carry out his threat.
"Second, I don't like people dating my mom. Too many guys have been complete jerks to her. So if you want to continue dating her we are going to go over some ground rules. One, you will not sleep over at our house and she will not stay the night here got it? Two, you will treat her as if she were a queen. She is an amazing woman and mom and she deserves the best. Three, don't expect me to be all buddy buddy with you from now on. I will be watching you like a hawk." Drake said fiercely. Walter took an involuntary step back away from the threatening teenager while giving him a nod.
"Oh and lastly, if you abuse or cheat on her I will come after you and make your life a living hell until you can't take it anymore!" Drake said ruthlessly. He was now standing only a few inches away from Walter's face and it took all of Walter's willpower not to completely back away from the boy.
"Look Drake, I want you to understand I would never want to hurt or cheat on your mother. I'm not that kind of guy! I also think she is a great woman. I understand you are protective and worry about her. I will follow all of your rules." Walter said holding both hands up in a surrendering manner.
"She seems to like you too…a lot…that's why I'm having this conversation with you." Drake explained.
"I promise to take the best care of her and will try to meet all of you high standards." Walter said trying to reach a truce with this rebellious teenager.
"Alright, you seem like a nice guy. You can keep dating my mom…for now" Drake said and opened the front door. When he walked into the hallway he turned back around.
"Oh and Walter?" Drake said almost innocently.
"Remember what I said about telling anyone about this meeting. The last guy she dated who didn't listen got sent to Peru and now takes care of goats as a living." Drake informed him with his evil smile creeping back onto his face.
"see ya!" He said as he walked away.
"U-uh goodbye" Walter said still slightly freaked out from the threatening teenager.
"Wow, Drake really acted like that?" Josh said with wide eyes.
"Yes he did. He was pretty scary for a 12 year old." Walter chuckled.
"But he seems so carefree and unconcerned about anything!"
"Well when it comes to his family he makes sure they are taken care of, even if it is done in a secretive evil way."
"Does he still secretly threaten you?" Josh asked now concerned.
"No not really, he lightened up a lot after a few more months of mom and me dating. He saw how I treated her and began to back off. However, whenever your mom and I would argue his protectiveness would come back almost full force. But after we got married he pulled me aside and told me he trusted me with her."
"Awwwww" Josh said as he smiled really big.
"As for how he is with the girls he dates try to think about it this way: Drake flirts a lot but I bet if he had a girlfriend who he really cared about and could possibly be in a relationship with for a long time, you would see his attitude change into the real Drake. He is just still in his playboy phase right now." Walter explained standing up and stretching out his back. He left to fix a snack in the kitchen.
"Hmm I guess we will just have to wait and see then." Josh said picking up the remote and turning on the TV.
Drake walked through the door and leaned his guitar case against the dinner table. He vaulted over the couch and landed on the side of the couch Josh was not on. Josh glanced over and stared at his new brother for a minute or two thinking about what his dad had told him. Drake began to sense the extra attention and turned towards Josh.
"I know I have amazing good looks but I don't think you need to stare at me for the rest of your life. Well, maybe." Drake said with a large smirk.
Startled and slightly embarrassed Josh swiftly turned back to the TV. "Yea yea you wish."
Thanks for reading! Please review! I'm trying to show a different side of Drake but I hope everyone still likes it! Please review even if it is to critique, I'm always looking to try and improve my writing. Thanks :)
P.S. Happy 4th of July!
