Mick waits until he is nearly black and blue from head to toe from The Thing before going back to Nikki's place. His place had gone to shit ever since his girlfriend left. It was trashed all the time, it smelled and Nikki hardly had any money left to go buy food or toilet paper. At least The Thing kept THEIR house in check. But as it turns out, Nikki needs Mick just as much as he needs him tonight.
(The title mostly inspired by P!nk's "Family Portrait". Also, I wrote this at a very late hour but had to get it out of my head. It may not make sense. I'll fix the errors later.)
Gunner remembered when his mother stormed through the million dollar house she forced her soon-to-be ex husband to buy and demanded that she take him back to her place, as it was her week to have him. He remembered screaming as loud as he could scream, crying all of the tears out of his small body, but his mother did not seem to care. He remembered dad stomping out of the room, and for a moment, Gunner felt abandoned. His dad wasn't going to at least hug him or kiss him goodbye? Then, from down the hall, he heard the 'click', and mom did too.
