A/n: Short little drabble I got out of watching "Over the Rainbow". Review if you like.

He had the hardest burden of all. The boys were fighters. Cordy was vision gal, Fred and Wes the brains. He was the one who held all their secrets on his Armani clad shoulders. They never noticed the simplest things; that Gunn and Wes both loved Fred, that Cordelia was slipping, how the whiskey bottle in Wes' cabinet became lighter each day, or how Angel's drawings were used as fire wood, how Gunn ran out in the night to fight evil alone. They didn't notice, no one every really noticed the obvious. Lorne knew things…he knew them…and it killed him.
