All I can say is that I hope this isn't true. This is hardcore angst, and I feel so sorry for you if this is based upon an actual expirience for you.

This is very good angst. I like the way you portray the emotions - although, it would be better if you put more background in it - longer, too. Don't explain the incident in a flat paragraph, but throughout the story tell little bits about it. You did pretty good on that, but I'm still not 100% sure I understand the story - give his brother a name, too. That would be good, and if you can, tell a little bit of the memories that they shared.

Other than that, this is an excellent story.

I don't know what it is with me lately, but I always love a good angst story. This is pretty great. Very real. I think I'll add it to my favorites.

Oh, that was really beautiful. The story was simple and, to be truthful, not the most original I've ever read, but written so that it seems original. The emotions flooded from the page.

A very few nitpicks...

"He grabbed me by my armpits and drug me into the bathroom." My English 1 teacher always kept after us about this one. It's "dragged." Drugs arewhat you keep in the medicine cabinet. :P

Only other reserve was the switch in time from driving home to laying on his pillow. For a short story, that little time switch inturrupts the flow, makes it choppy. You could have expanded and given at least a short paragragh describing the rest of the evening until it happened. Of course, that's nothing terribly important, just a "styalistic" suggestion.

I liked your description of the father keeping after him "like Christ's gaze"...a good parallel to draw. Also, I like that you never really say whether the father is the father...you just call him "him." Good work; keep writing!
