"Boys!" A stern but friendly voice yelled upstairs to the room of two teenage twin Timber Wolf brothers; one already awake, nose deep in a book, while the other lay on his side lost in sleep. The one reading looked up from the page, safely book marking it for later, and glanced to his passed out sibling, rising to go over and shake him firmly.
His brother stirred in his sleep, and shooed away the hands. "Gerrof me...Don't want to get up..." He said in a low, muffled voice. Logan gave an eye brow raise, and moved away from the bed. His brother; Luke, realizing that the threat was gone resumed into a deep sleep.
With no cry of warning or any sound of exclamation, Logan pounced on his older brother. Luke started awake with a yelp and grabbed his younger brother. "You'd think I'd know better huh..." He said with a happy chuckle, returned by an inaudible laugh from Logan.
"Boys!!! Last time. Or no breakfast for lazy pups!"
The twins looked at each other in near perfect unison, and leapt from Luke's bed and raced through the hallway, down the stairs. "Mom! We're not pups anymore, we're 16!" Luke said back as they skipped stairs going down and turned into the kitchen, their mother busy at the stove, not even looking away from her task.
"Oh that's right." She said with a giggle, at the intended mistake. "Luke do you want an egg and some bacon?"
"Yes, please." Luke replied.
"And what about you Logan, his mother asked glancing over her shoulder."
"Bacon and toast, no egg." Luke said, glancing at his brother with a smirk. Logan giving an inaudible chuckle.
Luke had been kind of a speaker for Logan, always having hints at what his younger brother wanted. Logan had been born 20 minutes after Luke, and had suffered damage to his vocal cords, resulting in Logan being unable to cry which lead to worry during his birth, and now results in his being unable to speak.
The two ate happily as their mother joined them at the table. "I'm going to be gone this weekend, so after school today I want you to come straight home, cause I'll be leaving the door unlocked since someone." She said eying Luke who looked away, guiltily. "Lost the key you used. Also your father will be sending you an email, so be sure to reply to it."
The two brothers nodded as they finished their meal; followed by showers and getting dressed. Their mother waited by the front door. Logan was out first, waving goodbye behind him. Luke was next, but was stopped by his mother's arm and she tugged him back.
"No more fights today young man." Luke rolled his eyes and groaned.
"Mom...Those weren't my fault....that Panther keeps picking on-..." His mother stopped him there with a hand over his snout gently.
"Just promise me please." And she thought a bit. "Unless you have too...Watch your brother okay...I worry about him..." She said with a sad smile.
A banging came from outside causing the two to look, Logan was there with a stick by the metal trash can, along with a gaze from the driver, and Logan's look was friendlier. Luke rushed onto the bus, waving at his mom, giving her a look and nodding. She smiled and sighed, and got ready for her trip.
