Ethan started to notice the little changes in Danny. Physically, emotionally, mentally and he wants to say something but he doesn't know how. When he sees Danny standing at his locker from down the hall and decided to go for it. Danny must have saw him coming because he felt the humans heartbeat quicken. "Danny?"
"Hey." Danny said still going through his locker.
Ethan watched him for a while then reached up and took Danny's hand. Slowly pulling it out of the locker he used his other hand and turned Danny's face to his own. Danny had a bruise under his eye and he closed the locker with his free hand and still holding Danny's hand he led him to an empty classroom.
A few minutes have passed since either one of them have said anything. Danny was sitting on a desk across the room while Ethan was leaning against the wall.
"Is that the only one?" Ethan said and Danny shook his head no. He watched as Danny slowly stood up and pull his shirt over his head. Revealing purple and black bruises on his stomach but that wasn't all. Even more was displayed all over his back. "Why didn't you tell anyone, why didn't you tell me?"
Danny leans back on the desk and shrugged, his shirt gripped tight in his hands. He was looking down at the floor but he could hear Ethan heading over to him. A pair of hands pulled him up and wrapped around his neck. Danny inhaled his boyfriends scent and buried his face in the crook of his neck. "I'm sorry."
"It's not your fault." Ethan said and even though he didn't let it show, he was beyond pissed. How could anyone even think about hurting Danny when he was the most sweetest guy anyone could know.
"I don't want to go back." Danny said. "I hate everything about that place."
"You can stay with me tonight." Ethan said still holding Danny in his arms.
Danny smiled. "What about your brother?"
"He'll understand." Ethan said. "Besides he will probably be with Lydia all night until she kicks him out." Soon the warning bell started ringing and he pulled away but stayed close to Danny. "I hate that you're going through so much pain."
"I'm kind of use to it." Danny said putting on his shirt. "Ever since my mother died I was a kid."
"A kid?" Ethan said. "No one else knows about this?"
Danny nodded his head. "My old friend Jackson was only other person I told. I really didn't trust anyone else enough to tell them the truth. I've been going back and forth with telling you or not. I just never got up the courage to tell you."
"Well I'm glad that you did tell me." Ethan said. "And you're welcome to stay with me as long as you like." He and his brother both got night jobs and make enough money to rent their own two bedroom apartment. It wasn't much but it was more then enough for them.
Danny smiled up at Ethan. "Thank you, love you."
Ethan's anger suddenly vanishes as he leans down. Slowly he presses his lips against Danny's and smiled. "I love you too." Stepping back he takes Danny's hand. "Come on I'll walk you to class."
Grabbing his book bag he followed Ethan out of the classroom.
Ethan and Aidan were staring over at Danny who was busy chatting with some of his lacrosse teammates. "So no one knows about what's going with Danny at home?"
Ethan shook his head. "No and I never should have told you so please don't say anything, to anyone."
"I won't." Aidan but there was something off about his brother. Something that made him worry that something bad was about to happen.
Ethan must have got the same feeling because he met his brothers gaze. "I'm not going to do anything stupid."
"I know you Ethan." Aidan said. "And you're not just going to sit here and do nothing. Don't mess things up with Danny by doing something stupid." Aidan said because he knew thats exactally what he was going to do.
Ethan looked over at Danny and stood up. "Whatever I do it's none of your business."
"The hell it's not!" Aidan yelled. "You're my brother."
"Just stay away Aidan." Ethan said before walking off.
Aidan knew that his brother was going to do something stupid so he just had to keep an eye on him.
Danny was glad when he got home and his dad wasn't there. He packed a bag for the night and made his way back outside. After calling Ethan he headed over to his apartment.
Ethan was lying on his bed while Danny laid on his chest watching TV. "So what happened to your mom?"
"She left when I was four." Danny said. "Back then my dad was all words but when I turned nine that's when he started hitting me. I wanted to fight back but I was to scared to actually go through with it. The older I got the more I got use to it and soon I started to not let it or my dad affect my life. Lately though it's more then I can handle and it's affecting me in every way possible. I just want it all to end."
Ethan sighed. "Me too." As the night went on Aidan didn't return so he assumed that he was with Lydia. Looking down at Danny who was asleep he kissed him on the head before slipping out of the bed. After getting dressed he looked at Danny once more. "He'll never hurt you again, I promise." Grabbing his jacket and keys he left the apartment. Getting onto his bike he drove to the Mahealani household. He could hear the older males heartbeat inside and only made him more upset. Turning off his bike he got off and headed to the front door. Knocking on the door he stepped back and a few seconds later the door opened, all he could smell was beer.
"Who the hell are you?" Mr. Mahealani said.
"You don't know me but I'm a friend of Danny's and we need to talk."
Aidan was busy making out with Lydia when he suddenly jumped up. Without a word to Lydia he jumped up and started to get dressed.
"What is it?" Lydia said sitting up.
"Ethan?" Aidan said heading over to the window. "I have to go, I'll call you later." He jumped onto his bike and didn't think about where his brother was because he already knew. He pulled up next to his brothers bike and saw the front door of the Mahealani household was open and he ran inside. His brother was on top of the guy he assumed to be Danny's father clawing ferociously at him, slicing anything they could find. He ran over to him and tried to pull him away but Ethan easily pushed him away. He kept trying and when his brothers claws accidentally meet his chest he feel back.
Realizing what just happened Ethan suddenly stopped and looked over at his brother. "Aidan?"
Aidan ignored the pain and went back over to his brother and pulled him up. "He's dead, get out of here." He said pushing his brother toward the door. "Go!"
Ethan was panting and covered in blood but he did what he brother said and left on his bike.
Aidan was pacing back and forth for a while before pulling out his phone and calling Scott because he didn't know what else to do. Ten minutes later he heard a bike pull up and turn off, seconds later Scott appeared. "What the hell happened?"
"Ethan?" Aidan said. "I'm freaking out here Scott."
"Okay just calm down." Scott said. "This looks like an animal attack."
"Yeah a werewolf attack." Aidan said. "What about all the hunters, Allison and what about the sheriff Stilinski?"
"We'll deal with that when it comes to that." Scott said. "I'll think of something."
Back at the twins apartment
Ethan was in the showers washing the blood off himself. He had already bagged his clothes and got rid of them but he still felt like he was tainted. This was the first time he's ever killed a human being before so why didn't he feel so bad about doing it. He could feel his heartbeat pounding in his chest and tried to calm himself down but nothing worked. His claws and fangs were still out and he sat down and closed his eyes. He started to focus on Danny's heartbeat and soon found himself relaxing. His claws and fangs disseapeard as he focused on the human in the next room. Finally opening his eyes he started to feel even more guilty. Not only was he lying to Danny about who or what he was he now had to deal with the fact that he just killed his boyfriends father. What the hell was he going to do now.
