Prompt: 027. Parents
Word Count: 397

Summary: "She wants to talk to you about your parents...your biological parents."
Author's Notes: The two that follow are directly related - should be read as 'Parents' then 'Family'.


Hunter flipped the channels, just as he had been doing for the last half hour.

Blake passed through the room – behind the couch where Hunter was lounging, and outside his peripheral vision, so he didn’t actually see him but hell, he wasn’t a ninja for nothing – and paused in the doorway to the kitchen as Hunter flicked onto Fuel Sports and a motocross race.

“Last year’s AMA National Championship?” Blake questioned.

Hunter flicked a page in the TV Guide. “Looks like.”

Blake made a noise which could have been appreciative or dismissive. Hunter took it as the former; they’d stayed up late (until four in the morning) to watch last year’s race (too hyped after some battle or other) and it hadn’t been the most competitive race he’d ever seen (Ricky Carmichael had smoked them all).

He flipped the channel.

Blake entered the kitchen and opened the refrigerator. “Want a cola?”

Hunter wrinkled his nose. It was nine in the morning. Too early for liquid sugar. “Nah.”

The phone rang.

“I’ll get it!” Blake yelled from the kitchen.

Hunter snorted, glancing at their only telephone which was sitting less than six inches away from him. Probably Tori.

He heard his brother’s footsteps come closer in a hurry. When Hunter sensed Blake just a foot away he reached out to his left and picked up the phone.

“Hunter and Blake’s lovenest, how may we help you?” he asked pleasantly.

He could practically hear Blake’s glare as it bored into his skull.

Hunter sat up after listened for a moment, looking more and more confused by the second. “I’m his brother…what’s this about?”

Blake suddenly detected the smell of ozone. The light brush of hairs on his arms stood on end.

Hunter handed him the phone. “It’s Katie.”

“Who’s Katie?”

“Katie, from the Post-Adoption Openness Registry in British Columbia.” A muscle in Hunter’s jaw twitched. “She wants to talk to you about your parents.”

Blake frowned, confused. “Mum and Dad?”

“Your biological parents.” Hunter visibly bit down on his lip.

“Say what?” Blake was still attempting to move past the first mention of ‘parents’.

Hunter stood up. “I’m…I’ll be in my room.”

Blake stared after his brother’s retreating form, before looking at the offending phone. It looked back at him serenely, a slightly tinny voice coming from the speaker. His biological parents…

Blake put it to his ear. “Hello?”


Title: Family

Summary: 'We need to go back to watching Ricky Carmichael and being real f*cking brothers, alright?'


Hunter was face up on his bed, staring at the watermark on the ceiling that looked like Nightcrawler from the X-Men comics.

Blake’s mom and dad. The only two people in the world who could underline the fact that they weren’t really brothers.

It was almost inevitable, he supposed. The Bradleys had always encouraged them to look for their biological parents – they’d set up deals with a couple of investigative services across the US (and Canada, obviously, ‘cause British Columbia? Blake was so going to get it for being Canadian.) and apparently the searches hadn’t expired with their deaths or their sudden falling off the radar for years.

Blake had had the most information on his parents previous to the start of the search. He was five, and he knew his last name – Vargas. And he took a while to get used to California summers and (lack of) winters, so maybe the Canada thing wasn’t that much of a shock.

Compared to Hunter, who bounced from group home to foster care and back.

And didn’t know a thing about his parents besides the fact that some woman that used to take care of him had red hair. So his only memory could contain about 2% of the population.

There was a noise near the door. Blake was in the very edge of his peripheral vision. And he looked…strange.

“What did Katie say?” Hunter asked dully.

“I don’t know.”

Hunter blinked at Nightcrawler, who seemed to share his confusion.

“How do you not know?”

“I may or may not have hung up on her.”

Hunter snorted. When he moved Nightcrawler morphed into Wolverine. “It’s either one or the other, isn’t it?”

“Yeah, well.” Blake fidgeted at the door. “Can I…” He paused. “Can I do anything?”

‘Yes, you can. We need to go get blood transfusions to make us real brothers, and you need to forget about your parents, and I need to forget about that damn hole of a group home, and we need to go back to watching Ricky Carmichael and being real fucking brothers, alright?’

Hunter blinked again. “No. Not really.” He glanced over at Blake, offering a relatively fake smile. “I just…kinda need to deal, for a minute. Alone.”

“Oh. Okay. Um…well, I’ll be…at Tori’s. Or the track. I’ll have my communicator, so…” Blake waited again, but when Hunter didn’t say anything more he turned. “So…see you later.”

Hunter listened as the front door closed with a quiet click.

And wondered whether Nightcrawler or Wolverine would mind if he just turned over and cried into his pillow.

Gah, sorry. Been meaning to post feedback for a while.

Sad yet sweet. I love how they're such brothers without being related by blood, and you've really captured some of the problems that come from adoption. Really makes me want to hug both of them now.

Oh poor Hunter. No way Blake would ever abandon him.
