(If You’ve Seen Brother Bear, this would make a lot more sense)
Mako wiped his tears as he stumbled through the streets of Republic City.
He held his brother’s hand, pulling him along.
“Mako, where are Mom and Dad?” Bolin whined, his eyes wide.
Mako sighed, closing his eyes. He finally opened them, pulling his brother into an alleyway.
“Where are Mom and Dad?” Bolin asked, tearfully, “Why are we running?”
Mako swallowed a lump in his throat, “Bo, you know how you like to tell stories.”
Bolin perked up at this, “Yeah?”
Mako’s lip trembled, “Well, I have a story for you.”
Bolin tilted his head, “What’s it about?”
“Well,” Mako croaked, “It’s kind of about you and I. It’s kind of about our parents. But mostly, it’s about a monster.”
Brother Bear, I let you down
You trusted me, believed in me and I let you down
Of all the things I hid from you, I cannot hide the shame
“Bo,” Mako whispered, “Mom and Dad aren’t coming.”
Bolin backed away, “I don’t like this story.”
And I pray someone, something will come, to take away the pain
Mako pulled Bolin into a hug, both brothers crying.
“I’ll always be here for you, Bo,” Mako whispered, “Always.”
There’s no way out of this dark place
No hope, no future
I know I can’t be free
But I can’t see another way
I can’t face another day
I’m hoping to make this into a comic, of sorts.
(Or, if some artistically inclined person wants to do it for me, wink wink)
Until then, have this story.
