Another Brother - 7. Bro Epilogue

Over the next few months, we settled into a routine of spending weekends at the Castalia house, with both of my brothers, as well as going out on picnics. Edgar had returned to doing painting again, which he had stopped doing after the death of our parents, and he even entered one of his newest paintings to the local art competition, where he received third place for his oil painting titled “Brothers Together” and second place for his oldest painting titled “Family”.

The newest painting was at the same location as the first painting, with all three of us on the hill with Edgar sitting on the swing, where I had sat those many years ago, with all of us smiling happily.

Edgar had refused to let us see the painting before the art exhibition, and both Oscar and I had not even posed for the painting, which Edgar must have done by memory once again, and both of us were stunned at the newest painting, that hung in the gallery right next to the first one.

I was so proud of my middle brother, he had gone through some difficult times, and now with all three of us together, we were very happy as we looked at the painting from the middle of the room, as crowds gathered to see the two paintings.

The End.

Who was the gay character in the story? Glad to see the family together and everyone happy and safe.

The main character was. That is why he wasn’t living with his Uncle and Aunt and youngest brother.

quokka, I really love this story and was so happy to read your comment that there will be a "book two".  You have created characters that are easy to fall in love with and leave us wanting more!

Well done Quokka, you managed to nicely capture the essence of all of us. Each unique individual has unique gifts, just waiting to come out and shine!!

Ok...so I'm late to the game.  I just read this entire story in one sitting, which was rather nice not having to wait for the posting of each chapter.  I loved it.  As to the questions about who was/were gay - not every story has to have erotic scenes.  Gays also have lives outside their sex lives!  I guessed that is why Austin was not accepted by the mean uncle and aunt.  But he has grown quickly through the traumas endured.  I'm always amazed, though, at these types of stories where parents die in an accident, but the kid/s are left with a quite sizable trust.  My family never left me with anything more than memories...

Quokka -

Thank you for Another Brother.  I enjoyed it very much mainly because the characters were mostly very real.

As with your other works which I have read, this story is well written.  I appreciate your attention to detail.  

Thank you for your hard work for the benefit of those of us to simply 'consume'!!

BTW - They DID evict the Orbison's, right?
