Life without Tim

Note-This is my first fanfic for Home Improvement. Something bad happens to Tim in this one. Also, this is set in Season 5.

Chapter 1

"Hey, that's my sweater!" shouted Randy.

"No way! It's mine!" protested Mark.

"Uh-uh! I saw it first!" yelled Brad.

"Hey, knock it off you three." replied Jill, the mother of the Taylor boys. "Your father's going to be back from grocery shopping any minute now, and I don't think he'd like you three boys fighting over some measly sweater." Suddenly, the phone rang.

"I'll get it!" shouted Brad. He picked up the phone. "Hello?" he asked. "No, this isn't Jill; this is her older son, Brad. I'll put her on. Mom, phone!"

"Hello?" asked Jill, and what she heard next made her visibly upset. "Oh no, when? I'll be right there." She hung up the phone. "Boys, something's happened to your father, and I have to get to the hospital right away. Brad, you're the oldest boy, so you're in charge of Randy and Mark until I get back." With that, Jill picked up her car keys and headed out the door.

"I wonder what happened with Dad." said Mark.

"I don't know, but I'm sure we'll find out when Mom gets back." replied Brad.
