Arthur sat alone on the large couch in the living room he used to share with Alfred. He stared blankly at the television screen, not moving, waiting for the American to casually waltz into the room and turn it on. New tears fell from his forest green eyes as he realized that Alfred wouldn't be there to turn on the TV anymore.
Matthew stood in the kitchen with dried tear stains on his cheeks. He didn't say anything; he only stared out the large window at the playground outside. He could remember the time Alfred had dragged him there and forced him to have some "fun". Even though he'd been angry at his brother for taking him there against his will, he couldn't help but realize that he'd enjoyed himself. Alfred could bring out the joy in almost anything.

A watch group.
That was what Matthew, Gilbert and Johnny had become. They were constantly watching over Arthur.
At first they had come to the house in order to comfort him, but as soon as Arthur had turned suicidal, they made it their mission to watch the man twenty-four/ seven.
Yes, Arthur had gone suicidal. He just couldn't take it anymore. He couldn't deal with the fact that he was alive and Alfred was dead. It was too much for his feeble heart.
So he tried to kill himself.
The first time had ended in failure. He had gone into the kitchen and pulled out the biggest knife he could find, then he had pressed it against his throat, ready to slice his life away. It was Johnny that had stopped him. He had gone into the kitchen for a snack when he'd witnessed Arthur about to cut his throat. He pulled the knife away (much to Arthur's dismay) and forced him to sit down.
The second time was in his bedroom. Matthew had walked in on Arthur trying to set up a noose. When Arthur
