AUTHOR: Me again
CHARACTERS: Danny. Tom, Harry, Dougie, and more…
DISCLAIMER: I do not own McFLY or not related to any of them…. And one more thing, I don’t own The Killers’ song
SUMMARY: Another fic featuring Danny---lead again. Danny Brightside is called as an almost perfect lad. He’s smart, he’s nice, kind, good-looking, friendly, but most of the time, quiet. He got a younger brother, named Dougie Brightside. Dougie, like Danny, is also good-looking, friendly, and quiet. But something happened…
NOTE: ONLY A FAN FICTION. OTHER CHARACTERS ARE FICTIONAL. AND I’M GRAMATICALLY INCORRECT, SWEAR. And one more thing, never mind the spelling errors.
Danny Brightside. An almost perfect guy. Everyone’s idolizing him. Since he was 3, many people already loved him. But Danny didn’t change. He, still, wanted to live a very ordinary life and wanted to be like everyone else around him. On the other hand, Dougie Brightside, Danny’s younger brother, is a quiet, and sometimes, cold person. He’s silently jealous of Danny’s popularity. Back when Danny’s 10 and Dougie’s 9 years old~~~
Danny, along with Dougie, went home with 3 Medals in his bag. He tried to hide it from his parents because they’ll just put their attention to him again. But unfortunately, they saw it…
“DANNY! Medals again! You’re really doing very well!”
There he goes again. I think it’s already the 20th time Father told me that I really doing very well. (Breathe deeply) Wonder when he will stop telling me that phrase…
“Look Dougie, look at these medals. You should have at least one of it to make me become proud of you.”
Dougie is silent. He innocently stared at the medals,like he never knew what kind of thing their father’s holding.
“Ahh... But the question is, are you going to have a medal like this someday?”
Now that hurts. Can father treat us equally?
“Father---“ I didn’t finished what I’m going to say because Mother opens her mouth, like she wanted to tell him something
“Enough, Roger. You just always compare Dougie to Danny. When will you stop comparing them? Dougie may not bringing medals when he went home from school, but he also got something special that Danny may not have.”
“Like what?!” Father blurted out
Mother can’t say a thing because Dougie is a little bit secretive. But I also felt there is something that he can do that I can’t do.
“See, NONE! That kid can’t do something special!”
“He’s not just a kid, Roger! He’s our son!”
“Oh yeah? (Pause and while walking away, he shouted) Son? C’mon!”
Another quarrel because of us, Father always treat Dougie like he was a nobody for him. Wait, I heard what Father shouted. What does it means?
“It’s alright, Dougie. Your father is just---“ Mom tried to compliment him but he ran towards his room
“Mum, about what Father shouted---“ I stopped because of the feeling that mother will become mad at me, but when I look at her eyes, it was still the same kind, open-minded, blue eyes of Mum.
“What about your father shouted?” She asked me pleasantly
“Is Father wanted to point out that---(Took a deep breath) Dougie and we, don’t have the same blood?”
“What do you mean? That Dougie is not your brother?”
“No… I mean--- Yeah---”
“Danny, (Approached me and put her hands on my shoulders) Dougie is your brother. The only conflict is, you don’t have the same father.”
I was surprised. Is that the reason why Father is always hot-headed when it comes to Dougie?
“Sorry if it’s too late to tell you about this. I’m just looking for a perfect timing to tell you---“
“Perfect Timing?!” Dougie asked Mum, surprisingly and sobbing “Now I know why he hates me very much”
Dougie went back to his room. Mum followed him and kept crying his name. While me,standing, feeling sympathetic for Dougie. If only our neighbors can see what’s happening inside our home, they’ll know how broken my family was, how imperfect my life was.
After a while, their father went to Dougie’s room, and saw their Mum apologizing to Dougie. Then Danny heard loud voice from his father after almost 15 minutes.
What’s happening inside? Father’s shouting again?
Danny went to the room. And he saw another very sad scene. Dougie’s crying while their Father, looks like he wanted to hit Dougie very hard, and their Mother always block his hand even though she already felt hurt. After a day~~~
It is Saturday. Every week, I always see Mother on the front of the stove, cooking breakfast, while Dad, in the Living Room, sitting on a sofa, reading a newspaper, and Dougie, slouching on the 4th chair from the left in the Dining Room. But today, there’s no one in the Dining Room, even in the Living Room. I went outside to look for them and I saw Mother, shouting Dougie’s name, and Father, talking to a Police.
“Father, what’s happening? Where’s---Where’s Dougie?” I asked
“Dougie’s missing.” Father answered my question straight.
“Your mother saw a note on the Dining Table. It says that Dougie left the house all by himself. (Sighs) Even though some of the words were misspelled, your mother understood what’s written on it.”
C’mon! Dougie’s already missing but Father’s still underestimating him!
“But, why? Why he would leave us?”
“I don’t know! And I don’t care! He just give us problems and headaches!”
I can’t take it. Dougie and Father may not have the same blood but Dougie is already a part of the family. I should look for him. As his older brother, it’s one of my responsibilities, to take care of my younger brother.
