“ I don't think I've heard you joke since you were..."
The sentence is left uncompleted for days, for weeks, for years, for a life. It haunts Percy in every noise; it resonates and howls in every silence. Fred is dead, Percy thinks, remembers, and his last words still hang in the air, unfinished, cut in half, wounded, eternally unhealed.
“Since I was what?” Percy asks one night and his mind burns with the fire of childhood memories overlapping.
But it’s useless. He’s useless and he can’t finish his brother’s sentence just as he couldn’t save his life.
