Such an Empty Word, Sorry

Work Text:

How are you supposed to comfort someone after the unthinkable? The one thing you never wanted to happen to them. That already happened to you. How do you deal with that? Do you stand there silently and see if they'll come to you? Do you approach them yourself? I wasn't sure what to do…

They looked up to me… I'm their big brother. They trusted me to protect them… But I didn't.

They went through the unthinkable. What I wouldn't wish on another being in a thousand years...unless they hurt my little brother.

I hugged them and dried their tears. I taught them how to control their new form and abilities. I was there for them…because I wasn't there for them before.

I could say sorry as much as I wanted, but it didn't mean a single thing. It didn't fix the situation, it didn't turn back time. Was I completely to blame though?

Was I?

Was I?

No…

No, I wasn't. I do carry part of it though. I should have protected them like I said I would. I should have gotten to them sooner.

Too little, too late. He got a hold of them. He used them like he used us. The pain, the confusion, the betrayal…

We trusted him at first, but that quickly changed. As soon the experiments began, our trust and respect for him were gone forever. I wonder if they ever trusted him. I hope they didn't. He's not even fit enough to stand on the ground they walk on.

We both know why he did it. He was curious… He's always curious.

Curious…

Intrigued…

Obsessed…

If I had my way, he wouldn't even exist anymore. If only…

Someday I will get my revenge. He will pay for what he has done to all of us. He wanted monsters? We can be monsters.

For now, it's just me and them. I only hope I can be a better brother.
