"Autumn and you talked about it? Why didn't you talk to me?" Clint accused.
"That's what I'm trying to do now!"
"No, you're telling me what YOU and AUTUMN decided to do. God. You haven't changed a bit."
Casey crossed his arms. "Yeah. Well neither have you. You're still about the girls."
"HEY! You were too! Don't judge just because Autumn's got you whipped now!"
"That's enough! I was trying to do this nicely. We'd like you to go. I bet Mom and Dad..."
"Forget it!" Clint yelled. "Don't worry about me. I'll figure something out. I don't need you telling me where to go."
Casey scoffed. "Yeah. Well I'll tell you where you can go.."
Clint snarled, "Back at you, buddy."
Autumn tried to smooth things over. "Bye Clint. Come visit soon, okay?"
Clint didn't even respond. Casey couldn't believe what a jerk his brother could be. He didn't wave as the taxi drove off.
Things were looking up, Casey thought. He should've kicked Clint out sooner!
"Come to the livingroom," Autumn called.
Austin shook his head sadly. "No. I'm not sure where he landed. I asked a few people to keep their eyes open. Hopefully we'll hear from him soon."
"It's all my fault."
Austin reassurred Casey. "It's never all someone's fault. Clint is just as much to blame in this situation as anyone. Time will work it out. It always does. Now show me my grandbabies!"
"They're not babies anymore!" Casey grinned. "They'll little toddler hellions now! If I have to clean up the toilet one more time," Casey groused.
Austin laughed so hard he nearly doubled over. "Payback's a pain, isn't it?"
