“I take it things went well?” Ashley asked her sister.
“Hmm.” Mary-Kate sighed. “Perfect.”
“Well?” Ashley asked her sister impatiently.
“Well what?” Mary-Kate wondered
“What happened?” Ashley asked her sister, wanting to know every bit of information.
“Well, it started out...” Mary-Kate started when she was interrupted by yelling.
“No way!” Marc-Andre yelled. “There is no way you are dating my sister!”
“Why not?” Brett demanded to know.
“Because she is my sister!” Marc-Andre yelled.
“That’s not a good reason!” Brett said angrily. “I think you are just jealous that I have found happiness!” Brett was starting to yell now. “All my life, I have just been an aid to you, both business wise and friend wise. Every time you had a girlfriend, I was happy for you. I felt sad inside because I wished I could feel how it feels to love someone and have someone love you. I listened to your hours of talking about your times together because I knew you were happy. That was the most important thing. And now that I have found my own happiness, you say I can’t have it? THAT’S NOT YOUR CALL TO MAKE” he thundered.
“It is when it’s my sister!” Marc-Andre said as he pushed Brett.
“Boys stop it!” Ashley yelled in vain.
Mary-Kate started to cry as she blamed herself for the chaos before her. She ran to her room crying.
“Mary-Kate!” Brett called after her as he turned to go see her.
“Don’t you walk away from me!” Marc-Andre yelled. He took Brett by the arm and pulled him back.
“Marc-Andre, stop it now!” Ashley yelled at her brother.
“Stay out of this!” He said angrily.
Brett and Marc-Andre started to fight, rolling on the floor. Brett was just trying to get away and not throwing any punches, yet. He managed to push Marc-Andre off him and walked towards the door.
“Come back here!” Marc-Andre said.
“Leave him alone” Ashley said while holding his arm.
“NO!” Marc-Andre yelled as he pushed her. She fell back and hit her head hard on the wall. She fell to the ground and didn’t move.
“WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?” Brett said in fury. He rushed to check on Ashley. She had a bump and a cut on her head, but wasn’t hurt anywhere else.
Marc-Andre stood in disbelief of what he had just done. His eyes had tears in them and he ran out the door.
Brett wanted to chase after him, instead he picked Ashley up and brought her to her room.
Mary-Kate had been crying on her bed when she heard a knocking at the door. She yelled at them to go away. She heard Brett’s voice on the other side of the door.
“Mary-Kate, it’s me. Open the door. Ashley’s hurt.” He said.
Mary-Kate got up and ran to open the door. Brett walked in and put Ashley on the bed. Mary-Kate worried about her sister.
“What happened?” She asked frantically.
Brett took her in his arms and kissed her on the head. “Shhh, it’s alright Mary-Kate. Marc-Andre pushed her aside a little harder than he wanted too and she hit her head on the wall. She’s going to be just fine.” He was rocking just a little bit to try and calm Mary-Kate down.
“Where is he now?” She asked when she had calmed down.
Brett dried her tears softly with his finger. “He ran out the door to cool down.”
“This is all my fault.” Mary-Kate said with her eyes tearing up.
Brett took her chin and turned her to face him. He looked into her eyes and softly said, “No it’s not. Don’t you dare blame yourself for this.”
Mary-Kate nodded and they both kissed.
After a minute of holding each other, Brett got up. “I’ll go check on Marc-Andre. You take care of Ashley. I’ll be right back.”
“Wait, your lip is bleeding. Let me take care of it.” Mary-Kate said.
“There will be time later. I have to find Marc-Andre.” Brett said.
“No more fighting.” Mary-Kate said.
