Chapter 30

Nick pulled the green Camaro into the open parking place that was in the parking lot closest to the beach. He then put it into park and took the keys out of the ignition as he pulled his sunglasses down over his tired blue eyes. He got out of the car and pushed a button on the keyring to activate the alarm system and made his way towards the warm sand of the beach as he followed the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks.

He closed his eyes for a moment and let the warm breeze blow gently through his short blonde hair and he let out a small sigh as he opened his eyes again to view the scarcely populated beach. He let out a sigh of relief and he scouted the beach looking for the perfect place to sit and think.

He found the perfect secluded spot and took his shoes and socks off and walked quickly over the spot that was nearby and sank into the soft, warm sand as he sat down. He pushed his sunglasses on top of his head and took in the site of all the things going on at the beach.

He saw a college aged girl walking her dog on the beach and a group of college students playing volleyball. Watching everyone having fun made Nick feel depressed so he got up and shook the sand from his clothes as he walked a path he had walked moments before back to the parking lot.

He deactivated the alarm system and climbed in the now warm Camaro and shut the door leaning his head on the steering wheel as he let out all of his emotions. It was then he came to the decision that he should talk to his family about this. Once he composed himself enough to drive, Nick started the car and drove out the of the parking lot back to his family's house, now finally feeling ready to explain what had happened.

Brian kept looking from person to person waiting for them to answer him. He looked over towards his brother and cousins and seen his brother push Kevin forward and heard Kevin mumble a "Thanks a lot Harold, just make me do all the dirty work, why don't ya?" as he made his way to Brian's bedside.

Kevin knelt down beside the bed and took Brian's hand in his as he cleared his throat and looked into Brian's eyes. "I don't know how to tell you this Bri, but Nick said it was too much for him to handle and he left shortly after you came here. We haven't seen him since."

Brian looked at Kevin and to everyone's surprise he started to weakly laugh "Ha Ha Kev, very funny. Now tell me the truth where is Frack at?" said Brian with a small smile that suddenly appeared on his face.

He again saw the occupants of the room keep looking at each other with sadness and nervousness apparant in their eyes, and it was then that Brian realized that Kevin wasn't kidding and the smile on his face left as quickly as it came and his eyes filled with tears. There was a few moments of silence as everyone nervously waited for what Brian's reaction to the news would be as they realized that he now knew that Kevin's words were true.
