"I should've never let myself fall for that fucking jerk... I can't believe he and my sister were fucking in bed..." he sneers
"A fucking jerk he is indeed. A bastard he is. And your sister isn't any better." A familiar voice to Henry spoke.
"Alex may not have been the ticket, but, I promise you, Henry, I can do so much better than Alex. If you want, we can try, and I promise to be the best you've ever had," Scott says softly.
"Whenever I had my doubts and whenever Alex was nasty to me, you were always there, Scott. Comforting me and reassuring me. I trust you. I believe you can do better than Alex. I accept to giving this new love a try," he said softly, his tears drying up.
"Let's make this worth while. But I can assure you, Henry, I'm not like Alex at all," he said softly.
"Yes. Indeed. It's hot out here, so, why don't we have a dip in the pool together?" Henry asked
"Yes, I'd love that," Scott grins.
"Huh!? Okay, Henry, where's Alex?" He asked
"I'll show you where Alex is." Henry said bitterly.
"You know Olivia isn't one to do that, Henry. You photoshopped that," he said firmly.
"Some brother you are, Jake." He sneers.
"Come, let's go for a swim. It's hot, and the heat's irritable, I know. Leave Jake, he'll eventually learn the truth. Olivia can't escape it. She's busted. Let's go," he said.
"Always playing the victim, aren't you, Olivia?" Scott sneers.
"She always plays the victim because she knows everyone in the family will come to her aid. See, no one cares about me. Even if I say Alex cheated on me, everyone will say I'm a liar. Clearly, that's what this is about," he said sadly.
"Guys, what's going on here?" Mason asked
"Olivia's had sex with my now ex-boyfriend, and now, she's playing the victim, making me seem like I was the one who did wrong. But I have photos to prove that Olivia and my ex are in the wrong," Henry said
"Is that true?" Sakura asked
"Henry's lying." Garnet said merely.
"They're genuine photos. You guys always fall for Olivia's tricks. You lot need to learn to see it more closely," Scott said with a sigh.
"Calm, Henry, relax," Ren said softly
"You're defending someone who did severely wrong. Henry's the victim. Olivia's just trying to gain your sympathy because she got busted with Alex. You don't care to look into any situation, because you're always so worried about Olivia. Granted, she's the youngest, but that doesn't mean she has the right to butt her way into relationships! Intimate ones especially! You lot really need to open your eyes and see that Henry's the victim, and you're defending Olivia just because she's upset," Mason said calmly.
"Well, if this is the way Henry's family are going, it's not good. We'll keep Henry with us, move him into Alnara with Scott," Sakura said.
"Well, Alnara is certainly lovely. I never doubted the creators when they said that," Henry smiles
"Indeed. Alnara is like that place you see in your dreams. Too good to be true, hey," Scott laughs.
"I agree," he said merely.
"I'll be honest, Scott, life has been really messed up for me lately. Family has gone to shit, Alex I kicked out because of him and Olivia, and now, new world! New place! I feel like life is just tossing me all around," Henry sighs
"Life will do that sometimes, Henry. But, sometimes, it's for the best. You may get kicked and tossed around a bit, but in the end, you usually get the best of the best, and everyone is left jealous because you got the best, and they were rejected," Scott said with a shrug.
"Scott? Where's my phone?" He asked groggily
"I'm going to see what this bitch wants," he sneers a little.
"He has his moments. Alex isn't the smartest sibling, but, in a way, he's careful. Honestly, he's not bad, but, his choices are shocking sometimes," Scott said honestly
"Indeed. He made an awful mistake. There's no one else in this world who is as gorgeous as you are, Henry. You take the cake, with no doubt," he said genuinely.
"The sun is so nice and warm," Henry says softly
"Indeed. Lovely and warm. Comforting too," Scott nods.
"Why are they here?" Henry asked quietly
"You wanna know something? I realised, that a family like ours, is doomed. Why? Too much drama. There's too many of us, and that causes too much drama," Henry said firmly.
"And I just spotted someone's looking guilty. Let me guess, you came to tell me that Olivia was lying to you and that she was INDEED playing the victim. Yes?" He asked patiently.
"Come, let's go for a walk, Henry," he said softly.
"There's no excuse for it. Everything you pointed out, has been true. We don't have a real defence," Sapphire said guilty.
"Henry, may we speak with you and Scott privately?" Garnet asked
"Sure." Henry shrugs.
"We were very wrong, Henry. We were incredibly wrong to have treated you the way we did. We're guilty, and we know Olivia is especially guilty. We treated you in a way that disrespected you after you had faced an extremely painful event. From our hearts, Henry, we're so sorry. We hope that with time, you can forgive us and we can return to being a peaceful family. And we support you being with Scott and if it helps to stay away from Alex, do that. But we are truly sorry, Henry. You never deserved the treatment we served to you," Emerald said, apologising sincerely.
"You respond, sweetheart. This is your moment," Scott said softly.
