PostSubject: I'm fine if I can fool myself tonight   Fri Jun 01, 2012 8:48 pm

Jacen Westmore was sitting in his office, two different files on his desk in front of him. One file was information Mikey had collected on two rival bosses of Jacen’s, Raven and Mason; the two bosses the Westmore family had problems with a few years ago.
Mikey’s information showed that over the years, Raven had rebuilt his business after Artemis had slaughtered most of his men and that Raven and Mason were in the process of planning an attack on the Westmore family; still after revenge over what had happened in the past.

The other file on Jacen’s desk showed what Jacen had been trying to hide for a few months now.

He sighed as he stared at the file, which held a doctor’s report he’d already read. He’d been able to hide the fact that he had been unwell for so long by either ignoring the symptoms while he was around Artemis, Frankie and the others or by spending most of his time at his club he’d purchased the year before, or by hiding in his office like he was now. Jacen knew he wouldn’t be able to hide it for much longer though as he’d recently started losing weight, which he realised wearing thick jackets wasn’t going to hide any longer as they were just starting summer.

Jacen sat staring at the doctor’s report for a few minutes longer before locking it, along with the file from Mikey in his desk drawer. He slowly got up from his desk, pulling a face when he felt dizzy anyway, quietly going into the kitchen to grab a piece of fruit to eat before slipping out of the house. He headed to his club, as usual, where he started drinking straight away after sitting at his private table; soon becoming aware of a dark haired man watching him.

Peter smirked as he watched the long haired man by himself, he knew he should be keeping his eyes on his younger brother as he was flirting with some guy but he found he wanted the upset looking man. He glanced at his brother before slowly getting up.

Jacob didn't notice his brother move.

Brett looked at Seth, "You sure this is the place?"

Dante sighed as he waited for Jasper.

Jacen stayed at his table and kept drinking, not paying attention to the man he'd seen watching him anymore so he never noticed him get up.

Nathaniel smiled at Jacob as he brushed a bit of his blonde hair off his face. "So what is it that you do for a living?" he asked.

"Yeah, I'm sure." Seth said, nodding.

"Hey." Jasper said, grinning at Dante as he walked up to him.

"Well hello there." Peter said as he walked over.

"I... I work with my brother." Jacob answered.

Brett nodded and entered.

"Hey!" Dante said hugging him.

"Um...hi?" Jacen said with a confused look on his face, trying to figure out if he knew the man or not, already close to being drunk.

"You mean the one who just got up?" Nathaniel asked.

Seth looked around before following Brett.

Jasper wrapped his arms tight around Dante, hugging him back.

"So whats your name handsome?" Peter asked.

Jacob nodded, "Yeah he's no older brother."

Brett looked around not sure where to go.

"Your late." Dante said with a smile.

Jacen hesitated before answering, almost using his first name before stopping himself. "Jacen..." he said, blushing a little at the word 'handsome'.

"Oh." Nathaniel said, nodding. "And what work do you do with him?"

Seth sighed, running a hand through his hair ashe looked as well.

"I realised that..." Jasper said.

Peter smiled charmingly, "I'm Peter."

"I-Its the family business...." Jacob said softly, afraid of scaring off Nathaniel.

Brett spotted Artemis, "Can you help is please?"

Dante kissed his cheek, "The twins wanted to say good night to you."

"Oh," Jacen smiled up at him, though he looked nervous for a second, the name sounding vaguely familiar. He ignored it though, not being able to work out why thanks to the alcohol. "Would...would you like to sit?" he asked.

"It is?" Nathaniel asked before realising what he meant by it. "...you don't look like you'd be in such a thing."

"...with what?" Artemis asked, confused.

"Well if I'd drove home any faster I would have been pulled over for speeding." Jasper said.

Peter nodded with a smile and sat next to him.

"I know but.... But Peter says its the best way for him to keep a eye on me." Jacob replied.

"Your the family that got Frankie out from Raven right?" Brett asked.

"I know i know." Dante said kissing his cheek.

Jacen watched him with his dark eyes before drinking more of his drink.
"He's protective of you?" Nathaniel guessed.
"Yeah, why?" Artemis asked.
"I guess we should go up then huh?" Jasper said, taking Dante's hand.

"So why you sitting in the dark corner alone handsome?" Peter asked with a grin.
Jacob nodded, "Yeah he is."
"We need help...." Brett said.
Dante smiled and took his hand, "Yeah, they are probaby close to falling asleep.

"Because it's my corner?" Jacen said, pointing at the sign that showed it was a private section, meant only for the Westmore family and friends.
"Lucky," Nathaniel said. "I don't have any brothers or sisters to be like that for me."
"With what?" Artemis asked, looking worried.
Jasper smiled and walked upstairs with him.

"Its a nice corner love but you shouldn't be alone, not a handsome thing like you." Peter said.
Jacob smiled, "I love my brother but he can be way over protective."
"We need to get our families away from DiBiase...." Brett said.
Dante smiled as he opened the door to the twin's room.

"I'm here most nights..." Jacen said as if it were an excuse.
"I take it he made you come here then?"
"DiBiase?" Artemis asked. "Which one?"
Cole quickly sat up when he saw the door open, not actually asleep at all, Thor on his bed with him. "Daddy's home!"

"Are you always alone?" Peter asked.
"Yeah... I was hoping to just stay in for once..."
"Ted..... I'm Brett DiBiase...." Brett answered.
Kari sat up with a smile, a small puppy named Gambit beside her, "Daddy!"

"Here? Most nights I am..." Jacen said leaning back in the chair after finishing his drink.
"But if you did I wouldn't have got to talk to you." Nathaniel said.
"Oh..." Artemis said, frowning. "So your brother? What's he doing?"
Jasper grinned and went over to sit on Kari's bed, holding his arms out for a hug, Cole climbing out of bed to go over to them.

Peter leaned in closer.
Jacob smiled, "True and i'm glad he did."
Brett sighed, "He had someone attack to members of our famlies...."
Kari hugged him tight as she could, "Papa wanted us to go to bed with out you saying night!"

Jacen blushed again, leaning away slightly.
Nathaniel grinned. "I'm Nathaniel by the way." he said, remebering he'd never introduced himself.
Artemis shook his head. "Why?"
"Aww did he?" Jasper asked, hugging her back. "Well I'm here now."

Peter smiled and kissed him.
"I'm Jacob." Jacob said with a smile, not watching his brother.
"He didn't like Julian talking to Remy....." Brett said softly.
Kari smiled, "We missed you daddy, i think papa missed you the most."

Not entirely aware of what he was doing thanks to all the drinks he'd had, Jacen kissed back after hesitating.
Nathaniel smiled. "So does being here count as work for you?"
"Ass..." Artemis muttered, knowing a little about what had happened over the years with the Rhodes and DiBiase families.
Jasper chuckled and looked up at Dante after wrapping an arm around Cole. "I'm sure he did."

Frankie stared as he walked in before growling and pulling him off Jacen.
Peter glared at Frankie.
Jacob had started to answer before cursing and getting up to try and talk the man out of attacking his brother.
Brett sighed sadly.
Dante smiled and kissed the top of her head.

Jacen moved away, sliding across the seat so he was out of Peter's reach, realising what could have just happened and hugged his knees to his chest.
Nathaniel frowned as Jacob got up, sighing as he went back to his writing he'd been doing before he'd seen Jacob.
"Are they okay?" Artemis asked.
"Papa? Why does daddy have to work? Don't like him gone..." Cole mumbled, pouting.

Jacob pushed his way between the two, trying to calm them before being pushed out the way by Frankie. He whimpered as he hit the wall hard, spraining his ankle as well.
Peter stopped and rushed over to his brother, yelling threats at Frankie.
Frankie just moved over to Jacen, but didn't look at him.
Brett sighed, "No..... Cody is still bruised up and Julian..... He was...."
"Cause daddy has to work, like grandpapa and granddaddy do... Like papa has to start doing again soon." Dante said.

"Just...just go." Jacen said to Peter, keeping his head down, his hair covering most of his face.
Nathaniel jumped slightly at the noise, frowning when he saw Jacob get hurt.
Artemis bit his lip and hugged Brett, though he didn't know him very well.
Cole pouted more and teared up. "Don't want you to go..."
