Fan Fiction - Casey & Zeke - About loneliness and friendship (Easter Dinner 1)

Good Morning, LJ!

Well, I know, Easter is a week ago (I wrote this on Easter sunday ;) ) - but  nevertheless I hope you will like this part.


Please read Part one and Part two before this - maybe this one could be a "stand alone story" but I think, it's better to understand if you know about the backstory.

Title: About loneliness and friendship (Easter Dinner 1)
Fandom: Casey / Mrs. Connor / mention of Zeke
Rating: G
Disclaimer: of course, not mine


Mrs. Connor was in the kitchen, doing the last preparations for Easter dinner. She looked up when Casey came in.

"What's up, honey?"

"Do you mind, I invite a friend of me for dinner?"

Surprised she glanced at him. It was the first time that Casey asked for something like this. It was the first time, that Casey mentioned a friend whom he would like invite. Casey was a loner. He had no friends.

"Why not! Do we know him?"

Casey bit his lower lip nervously.
"I don't think so. I just know him from school. Zeke... Zeke Tyler!"

Mrs. Connor frowned.
"Zeke Tyler," she repeated slowly.
"Ähm... Casey ...  this Zeke Tyler?"

Casey shrugged and tried to look uninterested.
"Yeah, but ...There's a lot of loose gossip about him - most of it isn't true! He's not like this!"

"What do you have to do with this boy, Casey? I mean ... well ... he is not exactly someone I wish as a friend for you!"

"Please, mom, don't condemn him! You don't even know him!"

"I don't want to know him, Case! And I don't want you to meet him! He is older than you! He goes to clubs and drinks alcohol! And didn't he have recently problems with the police because he sold drugs?"

"Oh mom, don't believe all this sh... this!"

Mrs. Connor sighed.
"No chance, Casey! I don't want to talk about him any longer! Just promise me: you will never meet him again!"

Casey swallowed.This got out of control.
"I can't!"

His mother looked at him sharply.
"What do you mean? You can't?!"

"I ... I'm not gonna leave him alone! I'm his friend!"

"Casey Connor ..."

Casey winced. This didn't sound well. Not at all well! If his mother spoke in this tone, she was going to be really angry. He nearly wished, he wouldn't have asked. But he wanted Zeke to come over for dinner so much ...

"He protects me ..."

His mother frowned.
"He does what?!"

Casey didn't like to speak about it, but probably it was the last chance to change his mothers mind.

"Well ... you already know. All these problems with Gabe and his friends ... "

Of course she knew. They tormented Casey at school nearly every day. He had endured all  without complaining at home. Once, when Casey had to be sewed in the hospital, she was ready to do something, to complain to the teachers at school and to the parents of these boys or maybe to press charges. But Casey had shaken his head and had meant, things only would go worse if she did so.

Some weeks ago the cruelties seemed to stop. They had never spoken about it, because Casey didn't want it. But there were no more visible wounds. His parents had felt so relieved that things seemed to normalize slowly.

"What has Zeke to do with Gabe?"

"Nothing! But Gabe respects him!"
 Casey shrugged.
"I don't know what he has done! But he has done something, I'm sure. Since then Gabe leaves me alone ... Sometimes a bit teasing - just when they can be sure, Zeke is not at school. But they don't touch me any more!"

"Why should he do this?"

"We are friends, you know!"

His mother sighed quietly.
"I don't like this, Casey! What did he expect from you?"

"Nothing, Mom! He just needs someone who is there for him from time to time!"

"But this is not your task, Casey! He must have parents to care for him!"

Casey shook the head.
"He has nobody! His Dad is dead for a long time. And his Mom ... his Mom also died only a few weeks ago."

Mrs. Connor turns round and stared at Casey.
"But ... this is awful! What has happened?"

Casey hesitated Then he shook his head.
"I can't tell you. Well, I mean ... he has told me, but ... he trusts me. Sorry, mom!  I think, he doesn't want that other people find out  ... "

His mother nodded slowly.
"You're a good boy, Casey, you know this? I want to be honest: I'm at a loss what to think about Zeke! But I know, I should trust your feelings! So ... dinner ... and we'll see what happens then!"

Casey threw his arms around Mrs. Connor.
"Thank you, Mom!"

Then he ran to the phone to call Zeke.

Poor Zeke, no one wants him around. It's good that Casey's mom's protective, but I pity Zeke having to endure her suspicions over dinner.
Can't wait to see what happens.

No one? Casey wants him - this is a lot, isn't it?
We will see what happens at dinner ;)

Poor Zeke! I'm glad Casey convinced his mom to invite him... even she doesn't feel that comfortable with the idea.
I'm very curious how this is going on...

I love this chapter, dear!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Well, as a mother I can understand her feelings - she cares about her son and she has heard a lot of rumors about "this Tyler boy" - what should she think about all this? But we will see how this will going on, right?

Poor Zeke, I'm so glad that Casey was able to convince his Mom to invite Zeke for Easter. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out.

Thank you for reading.
Yeah, Casey can be so convincing - I think, he really likes Zeke and he doesn't want him to feel alone on Easter. I just hope, all will work out as he imagines.

Good for his mom to be able to express her feelings and to be willing to give Zeke a chance. I can't wait to see how the dinner goes.

Yes, I think you are right! Her feelings for Zeke are so understandable, but it's great that she is willing to give him a chance, though I think she does it more for Casey then for Zeke.

Dinner will come soon ;)

Easter dinner is going to be quite an advanture!!

Oh yeah, "family shit" with Zeke is always an adventure, isn't it? ;)

(Deleted comment)
That's it! Casey needs a friend, Zeke needs a friend, these boys belong together - also Mrs. Connor will have to recognize it. I hope, she will ;)

Wow, that was difficult. Zeke's reputation preceeds him. Casey really defended him well. I love how loyal he is. Of course, Mrs C must soften towards someone who is protective of her son. I hope the dinner works out!

Oh yeah, Casey is ready to defend Zeke, although against his mother. Though I can understand her position, Zeke's reputation is really not the best, she doesn't know him and of course she want to take care of her son ...

Playing catch-up! Poor Zeke, with his bad rep following him around. Mrs. C will see how he's a sweetie, and oh, he loves her boy. :) Go Casey, standing up for your man!

Hmmm. He loves him? Does he? Are you sure, Mrs. Connor would like to find out?
