A/N: This is a one shot about my two favorite twins. There are two sequels to this short story and I'll post them if at least someone expresses interest in this story. Below are slash and twincest so you have been warned! Please enjoy
He was positive that his brother had lost his marbles. What other explanation could there possibly be for the way he was acting? Well maybe you couldn't quite call it that. When you said someone had lost their marbles they usually acted completely different from how they would normally act. An erratic type of behavior was most likely the biggest change in their normal personality for it to classify as loosing your marbles but he wasn't sure if his brother fit that criteria. Cain was just acting cold and distant which was a part of his normal personality but it was never directed towards him. Most people didn't know it but his brother was very loving and sweet. He had always saved that part of himself for him but around two months ago something had changed and he was unable to put his finger on it.
Cedric jumped when he heard a door slam, the slender male forced out of his thoughts by the noise. Glancing down the hall, he leaned forward a little so he could get a better look and caught a glimpse of Cain heading to the bathroom before the door was shut [or rather slammed] behind him. Blue eyes flickering up towards the ceiling, he started twirling a strand of his light, curly blond hair around his finger as made himself comfortable on the couch, legs dangling over the arm. He had started to drift off, thinking random things about his brother when he heard the phone ring. Sighing, he simply kept his eyes closed and ignored it, eyes opening when he heard someone shuffling past him. "Cain?" he called out, his gaze landing on the almost identical looking male standing a few feet away from the couch. About to say something to his twin, he blinked when his boyfriend of seven months came on the answering machine. It was a short message in which Alex asked Cedric to get back to him once he was home. Nothing special but one look at Cain and Cedric was able to tell that he was pissed off.
It didn't make any sense to Cedric and no matter how many times he tried to wrap his mind around it he couldn't figure out why his brother seemed to have problems with Alex. Cedric only had two other boyfriend besides Alex in his twenty one years of life and they had both only lasted a month or two. With those two his brother hadn't acted the way he did around Alex but his bad behavior towards his current hadn't always been negitive. His brother had been nice enough [well as nice as Cain could get] towards Alex in the start of their relationship and he didn't really notice any problems until about two months ago when his brother suddenly started treating Alex and himself horribly. It had happened right after he spent that first night at Alex's house. Ever since then he had been pulling away from him, which hurt a lot. Cedric and his brother had always been close, like most twins were, and not having his brother there was killing him. Sure, he did live with him but he still wasn't there for him.
"Cain…" he whispered softly, wanting to talk to him but he was cut off by his brother. He obviously had other plans.
"I'm going out. Don't wait up for me," Cain interrupted Cedric, grabbing his jacket and slipping on his shoes as he once again slammed the door behind him, leaving a confused and hurt Cedric behind.
Cedric ended up falling asleep right on the couch that night. After his brother left, he curled up on the couch, pulled a blanket over him, and then closed his eyes since he didn't feel like going to his room. He had been in a semi-nice sleep when he heard the front door open and someone stumble into the apartment. Eyes slowly opening, he rubbed the sleep out of his eyes as he tried to focus on the figure at the door and once his vision cleared out he realized it was his brother. Yawning softly, he pushed himself into a sitting position, trying not to fall back to sleep as he quietly observed his brother who appeared to be drunk. "Cain what time is it?"
"How the hell should I know?" his brother replied in a harsh tone.
"I was just asking! There's no need to bite my head off," Cedric muttered, frowning when Cain rolled his eyes and walked past him, most likely planning to head to his bedroom. "Would you please wait a second, Cain?"
"I'm going to bed Cedric. Just leave me alone, please."
"No!" He blurted out, almost jumping off the couch as he rushed over towards him and grabbed his wrist, the slightly younger twin needing to glare up at him because Cain was two inches taller. "I'm sick of you treating me like crap, Cain and I'm not going to let you get away with it any longer. I want to know what is up with you and don't tell me it's nothing because I'm your twin. I, of all people know when your full of shit!"
"Cedric mind your own business."
"You're my brother, Cain which means you are my business and nothing can change that," Cedric said firmly, the male blinking when Cain pulled his arm away and he was able to do this because his grip had slackened when he started talking to him. "Please tell me what's wrong!"
"Even if I wanted too I wouldn't. You would never understand."
"Please give me a chance before you decide whether or not I will understand."
"Your really not going to give me a moments peace until I tell you, are you?"
"No, I'm not," Cedric, explained to him. He didn't care what was bothering him. As long as Cain was open with him and finally told him what was on his chest he would be fine. All that mattered was he and his brother getting their relationship back on track.
"Fine, but don't say I didn't warn you," Cain muttered after awhile, leaning down to capture his brother's lips in a soft kiss and it was at that moment Cedric knew his life would never be the same.
