    Summary

    "Don't presume to know me," Andrew says, but it has no bite, no resentment. He sounds tired, and the strain makes Neil's smile falter, his arms falling to his sides. Andrew should never sound so defeated, so hopeless, not even for a moment. It's the tone of a man who's already lost, and Neil's not even aware of what game they're playing.

    So he smiles again, shaky this time, and hopes with everything he has that Andrew can sense Neil's truth as well. That whatever it is, Neil will still be riding along with Andrew in his truck. He won’t leave.

    "No," Neil says back, shaking his head. "I only know what you tell me."

    And if Andrew decides to tell him everything, then Neil only hopes it's because he wants to.

    Summary

    “Alright. Let’s try this one more time.”

    Neil scowls up at Waterhouse and folds his arms across his chest. “I told you I’m not saying anything else.”

    Waterhouse’s knuckles turn white where he grips the back of the chair on the other side of the desk and he huffs out an irritated breath. “Stop being difficult, Neil. You know Aaron’s testimony relies on you.”

    “Why?” Neil retorts. “Aaron’s account, plus the statements from all the other kids who stayed with Cass and the crime scene should be more than enough to rule it as self-defence.”

    Waterhouse rolls his eyes and Neil knows he’s sick of having this same argument over and over again. “It should be,” he allows tightly. “But there were four people in the room when Drake hit the ground.” He begins ticking them off on his fingers, “One was the victim, one’s dead and one wielded the murder weapon. You’re the only objective piece.”

    Neil scoffs, giving him an incredulous look. “I’d hardly call myself objective-“

    Summary

    “Now, there you go. Good slut, I guess?” He replied, swinging the keys between his fingers, pressing the vehicle's alarm button, and walking over to the car when he spotted it in the parking lot.

    "I see we have already started with degradation?" Andrew accompanied him.

    "You were a bitch all night, so you should be grateful that I didn't start this much earlier."

    "I would be grateful if you had started this earlier."

    "You'll be on your knees thanking me in one way or another until the end of the night," Neil said, flatly and fluidly. "Now get in the car, nasty brat."

    Summary

    As he spends long hours playing with Atlas, Neil questions why Andrew never comes to visit. Neil knows he's not good at reading people, but with how much time he and Andrew also spend together now...

    He'd think they were friends? Maybe?

    Something in Neil's stomach flips uncomfortably at the thought of Andrew, and Atlas lifts his head, peering down at Neil.

    It’s uncanny, how he always seems to do that, but Neil isn’t any closer to figuring out himself or Atlas’ bizarre behavior.

    Summary

    "No, you're not real," he says, and he thinks he repeats it a few times, trying to convince himself it's all one bad dream. Whatever is stalking him stops, but Neil can still feel its aura, its power. The presence it has is gargantuan, a wall Neil has no hope of getting past. Just like his father in front of him. At the thought, at the ghost of hands on him, Neil screams. "You're gone!"

    And he opens his eyes just as the lightning strikes. It bathes the forest in a bluish glow for half a second, but it's enough for Neil to see.

    It's not his father, it's—

    The dog in front of him boofs softly, and Neil's eyes widen.
