He worked himself up with so much anger that he marched to his parents’ bedroom. He yanked open the door and barged in without even bothering to knock. He was beyond caring at this point. At his arrival, his mother opened one eye from where she was laid up, cuddling with his father. Eww… Maybe he should have knocked first.
“Really James? What is the problem today that has you in a fit?” Marcella asked, with an eyebrow raised.
“I am not a child!”
“Mm, when you act like this, it’s hard to tell,” Michael retorted.
“The two of you aren’t funny. I’m serious!”
“You’re always serious,” Marcella said, mocking his tone.
“Don’t mock me,” James answered. He growled, baring his fangs.
“That’s enough out of the both of you,” Michael warned. “What is it James? What’s wrong now?”
“What’s wrong, is I’m twenty-one, yet I still live at home. What’s wrong is that you still follow me on a hunt. What’s wrong is that I’m not a fucking baby anymore. Stop treating me like one!”
“I see,” Michael said.
Marcella scrunched up her face and made a tsking sound in the back of her throat because of his little outburst. Well too damn bad. The shit stopped today.
“I’m moving out,” James said. “I’m going to build my own hut and I will live there alone or with Kain!”
“Don’t be ridiculous,” Marcella scolded. “You are staying here and that is final. I don’t want to hear anything else about it. Do you understand me, James?”
“You aren’t listening, Mother. I’m not a child and I’m tired of being treated like one.”
“Well, when you start acting like an adult, we will treat you like one,” Michael said, stepping in. “In the meantime, you aren’t living far from our sight. Did you forget the fact that you died?”
“Oh my god! How long are you going to hold that over my head? It was one time, Father. One! It hasn’t happened again and it won’t.”
“We’ll see. You are staying here for now and this conversation is over,” Michael said. “Now close the door on your way out.”
His parents went back to resting on the bed as if he wasn’t even in the room anymore. Even still, they treated him like a child! James stormed out and slammed the door behind him. He opened it and slammed it once more to really bring his point home.
Fuck! His parents were assholes and a pain in his ass. They insisted on parenting, instead of letting him live his own life. It was unacceptable. They were determined to ruin his life with their meddling. It was unheard of in Mystic culture. He shouldn’t be the only child, and they shouldn’t be trying to keep him under their roof. He was a fucking laughing stock. His entire extended family talked about him behind their backs. They were the top of the food chain, yet he and his parents were barely respected in their own community because of their choices. The worst part was his parents didn’t even care. He told them what was being said and they just shrugged and said dumb shit like, “They won’t say it to our faces.”
James was ready to murder. He couldn’t wait until Kain got there. Someone was going to die tonight, and it wasn’t going to be pretty. He was going to rip some poor asshole apart and with his bare fucking hands. He needed to destroy things today.
The emotions were so strong, that he could feel the magic coming off him in waves. If he wasn’t careful he would destroy the hut with his erratic magic. That would just make his parents hound him even harder. Any excuse was a good enough reason for them to keep him here. He was done giving them any.
He tried to steady his breathing and think relaxing thoughts, but it wasn’t working. Where the fuck was Kain? He needed to hurry up before James lost his damn mind and blew everything to Hell and back. With the mood he was in, it was a good possibility.
