The Worst Thing (About Me) (6465 words)
Oliver was right in one thing, it was this place, the atmosphere, it was like a journey in time, he just waited for Darren to appear on his doorstep and announce that they needed to talk.
Daniel couldn't remember why had he decided to take him there instead of the living room, why hadn't he told Oliver that they had a guest, why he told Darren that everyone left and forgotten to mention that his brother was home.
