The camping trip had come to a close and it was time to head back. After packing up all the newly bought camping supplies into the back of Mason’s truck they all hopped in for the long ride home.
As they were unpacking everything Delsin was patiently waiting on the front deck, a angry glimmer in his eye. When Mason tried to walk past him Delsin blocked his path.
“No way. You aren’t allowed in this house.”
“Why not? I live here now. Me and Harley have some good news to tell you too.”
Harley raised her hand with the engagement ring on it and said excitedly,
“We’re getting married!”
The family could see Delsin bristle,
“You did what? How could you do that Harley?”
“What- What do you mean? Why wouldn't I?! We have children together Delsin!”
Delsin pointed a finger accusingly at Mason and raised his voice,
“Oh you may have children together yea, but where was he Harley? Huh? Where the hell was HE. I’m the one that helped you raise those boys! You know what else he did to you? He sent out father to an early grave! You knew Dad didn’t have that much time left and then this guy came around and got him all worked up! Your fiancee killed your father Harley!”
Mason could see out of the corner of his eye Harley's lip begin to tremble. He tried to keep his cool, he wanted to work this out amicably but Delsin didn’t want that.
Mason lowered his voice into a deep menacing sound,
“Now you listen here Delsin. I don’t know who you think you are to make those kind of accusations but for your information your Father was trying to make amends with me right before he died! You would have known that if you would have stopped and asked any of us before attacking me! You already know that I didn’t know I had children so why would you even bring that up? I LOVE Harley and no one is going to stop me from having my family together anymore. Not even you.”
Delsin let out a cry of rage and launched himself at Mason.
Mason was well trained in the art of combat and deftly evaded his attack, managing to lock him in a headlock.
They both threw punches, Mason landed more but Delsin was using his brute strength to try and beat him.
Claudio, Harley, and Coheed both stood by staring at the scene in front of them. All of them were a little shocked and worried. What a way to come back home.
Coheed looked up at his Uncle and Dad fighting and gulped nervously,
“Uh, Mom. Are they gonna be okay?”
Harley sighed and put her hands on her hips,
“Probably not. This isn’t going to end well at all.”
Claudio stared at the fight with a serious expression on his face,
“Dad will win.”
Mason threw the last punch that sent Delsin falling to the ground. When he was finally able to stand on his own two feet Mason raised his finger,
“Now you are going to leave my house. I didn’t want to do this Delsin, I really didn’t. I don’t understand why you have to be so bull headed! You have until tomorrow to pack your things.”
The next morning the moving van had come and all of Delsin’s families things were packed. Delsin was sitting in their families car waiting for Callie and Holly to come out and meet him. The night before Mason tried to reconcile with him and say it was just a heat of the moment fight but Delsin had been drinking and proceeded to throw his glasses at him.
Callie didn’t have any hard feelings towards anyone about it. So sat down with Harley to make that perfectly clear.
“Harley I just want to let you know I still love you and the boys and I don’t harbor any bad feelings towards Mason. I understand why he had to do this, I wouldn’t want to live with someone that hated me too. Hopefully my husband, and your future one will come to an agreement sometime.”
“Oh Callie! I’m going to miss you so much! Please bring Holly over to visit sometime, we all love you both.”
Holly on the other hand was taking things a little more harsh than her Mom was. She was going to miss her cousins, they were like big brothers to her and at her new house there wouldn’t be anyone to play with!
“Please come visit me sometime okay? I’ll be growing up soon so we could totally take the club and go hang out somewhere!”
Coheed squeezed his little cousin in a hug,
“Of course squirt! Don’t forget your Unicorn okay?”
After they tore apart Claudio bent down and hugged Holly,
“I can tell you what I’m not going to miss about living here, your extremely late night guitar sessions!”
Claudio laughed and flicked one of Holly’s pigtails,
“Stay sassy squirt.”
