Boop boop-a-doop ;)
Peter CallahanThe ride home was silent and the tenseness of it all was weighing heavily down on Peter’s chest as he sat in the front seat with Conor. He looked over at the man, worried about he was taking all of this but didn’t want to break the silence.
They arrived back in the Porter’s driveway and Peter was quick to open the door and hop out. He wanted to open the door for Sinny, but she seemed to have something in mind as she was also quick to get out. He watched as she rounded the car before slapping Conor hard, causing the man to flinch slightly at the harshness of it. He could see the anger in his wife’s face and he knew that it was justified…the events that took place tonight should have never happened. Peter was worried that Sinead might leave it at that, but he wasn’t surprised when she pulled her brother in for a hug. After that, Sinead looked to him and Aliana before heading towards the house. Peter nodded slightly after her before turning to look to Conor and Ali.
His brother-in- laws distant apology caused the man to shake his head firmly. In Peter’s head, Conor had nothing to be sorry for, though he knew that it was an unpopular opinion with his wife. Those IWU jerks had it coming and if they would have just kept their mouths shut and stayed away, none of this would have happened. ”Get some rest, mate.” Peter told the man gently before coming up to give him a light hug of reassurance. He then looked to Ali and offered the woman a small smile despite the situation, ”You’re one tough cookie.” He commented before she said his name and told him to take care of Sinead tonight, that everything else could be dealt with later.
”And you the same with Conor.” He told her lightly before turning on his heels and heading towards the his house, leaving the Porter’s house behind him for a while. Seeing Sinead on the bench, Peter walked up the short steps before moving to sit beside her. At first, he said nothing for a long time, simply looking out into the darkness ahead of them. Then he sighed, ”I’m sorry you had to see that.” He murmured before placing his arm around her lightly. "What can I do to make this better?" his voice cracked as he looked to her.
