Even Steven part 5

by JR Boyd



Steven should have known this would be his luck. Not even a mile up the road, a dirty old cat scuttled across the road. He jammed on the brakes and cut the wheel, sending all the crap piled on the dashboard sliding across and down onto Braden’s lap.

“Fuckin’ cats!” Steven slapped his palm on the steering wheel, anger merging with sarcasm to create a harsh ball in the pit of his stomach. “Can’t they stay out of the damn road?”

“What’s this?” Braden's face was scrunched when Steven glanced over, bewilderment darkened his eyes.

“What’s what?” Steven's manner was cross.

“This. It’s a photo of…dirty hands.” Braden slowly passed the picture to Steven.

Steven pulled over and parked. A single glance at the photo and Steven was beside himself. He gripped the steering wheel with both hands and closed his eyes. "I can't do this."

"Whoa. Are you alright? What's up with that photo?" Braden squeezed Steven's shoulder.

Steven opened his eyes, slowly turning his head. "No, Braden. I'm not alright." Steven's body twisted as he drew his leg up into the seat. "That picture..." Steven breathed in deep. "That picture is a black and white photo of dirty hands alright. They're covered in blood."

The back of Braden's hand brushed Steven's cheek.

Steven held up the photo. "Wait. Do you see that?"

"What?" Braden leaned in, his neck stretched and eyes squinted.

Steven tapped. "That."

Braden blinked and focused.

"Gotta be a clue, don’tcha think?" Steven tapped harder.
