Story

The Petrelli household, a hive of secrets and deceit. All is not as it seems within the Petrelli family. People never really know what goes on behind closed doors, what makes people who they are today. Not all fathers are easy to live with. Some want the best for their children while others want their children to be the best. Mr Petrelli was neither of these, he’s a man with one care in the world, himself.

“Arthur!” – Mr Petrelli

“What?” – Arthur

“Get down here now!” - Mr Petrelli

Arthur ran from his room straight down the stairs to his father, who was waiting for him in the front lounge.

“What do you want?” – Arthur

“I thought I told you not to go over the McEllen’s house again!” – Mr Petrelli

“I didn’t, I just…..” – Arthur

“Don’t lie to me!” – Mr Petrelli

Mr Petrelli raised his hand and struck Arthur across the face. Arthur fell to the ground with a whimper. Mr Petrelli looked down upon his son, in shame. How could he have raised this pathetic excuse for a human being? Sickening. Arthur rose to his feet, trembling. He ran out of the room and back up the stairs. Minutes later, his mother arrives home from a shopping trip.

“Ah Katherine, welcome home.” – Mr Petrelli

“Hey honey.” – Katherine

“Could I have a word with you in the study?” – Mr Petrelli

“Sure” – Katherine

Mr Petrelli led the way into the study and his wife, Katherine, followed. He held the door open for her and as soon as she had entered the room, he slammed the door shut behind her. Arthur came to the top of the stairs alongside his sister, Natalie. They had both heard the commotion and came to see what was happening. The two of them crept down the stairs and headed for the study. Arthur and his sister pressed their ears against the door, trying their hardest to make out what was being said.

“Where the hell have you been?” – Mr Petrelli

“I’ve just been out shopping.” – Katherine

“You wouldn’t lie to me Katherine, would you?” – Mr Petrelli

“No, like I said, I’ve just…..” – Katherine

“I know what you said Katherine, but that doesn’t make it true.” – Mr Petrelli

“Why would I lie?” – Katherine

“You’re right, you wouldn’t, because you know exactly what I’d do to you if you ever did don’t you, don’t you!” – Mr Petrelli

“Yes, Yes!” – Katherine

Natalie and Arthur sat outside the door, bewildered.

“What does he mean by “you know what I’d do to you”?” – Natalie

“I don’t know, you know what dad’s like.” – Arthur

“He scares me sometimes Arthur, I wish Tim were here.” – Natalie

“I know, me too” – Arthur

The door to the study swung open and the two of them emerged. Katherine looked as if she had been crying, an all too familiar sight to Arthur and his sister.

“What are you two up to?” – Mr Petrelli

“Nothing.” – Arthur

“Better keep it that way.” - Mr Petrelli
