“I do understand, Zeke.”
Casey sighed.
“But I wish you could think more positive. They made the first step. Give them at least a chance.”

Zeke smiled sadly.
“Case, I'm glad that you have nice parents. Sometimes a bit overprotecting but they love you, care for you. My parents never were like that. When I was younger I often wondered if it was my fault that they don't love me. They rarely were at home, we never did spend time together, not even at my birthday or at Christmas. Some day I've just given up, I was alone, unhappy … and angry … so angry ...

My life probably would have come to a pretty bad end if it hadn't been for my Grandpa. I'm afraid I didn't make it easy for him but he never was willing to give me up. It's due to him that I did go back to school. That I will graduate, go to College this summer … together with you.

My parents … I haven't seen them since ages. They didn't even come home when he died last year, their business-trip was more important. Why should I talk with them now?”

“They are still your parents. You are their son. The letter from your Mom … it looks as if she finally starts to remember this. Don't miss this chance, Zeke.”

He couldn't help it, a slight smile sneaked onto his lips. Everyone else he would tell to shut up and leave him the fuck alone. Not so Casey. He wouldn't go anyway, he was a stubborn little shit … one of the reasons why he loved him.

“Fine, I will call her,” he said.
“But that's all I can promise you.”

Casey smiled.
“It's a beginning.”

Once Casey's sunk his teeth into something he doesn't let go.

Brat :)

That's why we like him, right? And maybe this is what Zeke needs sometimes. No one can know what will come out of this call but it's a chance and this shouldn't be missed.

I'm glad Casey's outlook is motivating Zeke to at least take a chance on his folks. People can get better. But he will never forget Casey just loved him unconditionally from the first, and that he didn't have to do well in school or anything other than be himself.

Well, it is that, right: a chance. No one can know what will come out of it. But whatever will happen, Casey will always be by Zeke's side to help him. And that's good to know.
