Lincoln was in his clothes, playing Street Thug 7 on the Playstation 4 with Clyde, on the TV in the guest room Lincoln was staying in. Both boys were having such fun with the fighting game, and it was uncertain who was really taking the lead, Lincoln would win one match, and Clyde would win one after the other.
"Got you right where I want you, Lincoln!" Clyde said, feeling that he would win.
When it looked like Clyde was about to beat Lincoln, his friend got the upper hand by finishing Clyde's character off with his own in the game. Then it was decided that Lincoln was the one victorious. "Yeah!" he cheered. "I won! I Won!" Clyde could hardly believe it. Nonetheless, Lincoln looked at him and realized that he was gloating a little too much. "Oh, and good game, Clyde, you did a good job."
His best friend smiled "Thanks Lincoln." then both the boys decided to have enough with this game and take a little break from it. "Well, I gotta help my dads with one of their microscopes. They could really use my IQ"
"That's okay, Clyde." Lincoln said ."I understand. I could use a little break myself." then he took off his clothes, minus his underwear, and pulled out one of his comic books to read once again.
Clyde went out of the guest room so he can help out his fathers with this little science set for them to enjoy. It made Lincoln think of the time Lincoln won the science fair a few years ago. He was no Lisa of course, but he won first place with the small, artificial, technological replica of Mt. Kilimanjaro, that spat out chocolate milk.
then Lincoln thought of Lisa, the child prodigy of the family. "Pfft, that little, insufferable smart-Alec." He mildly spewed with anger. "She thinks she is so smart and better than everyone else. I'm so glad o don't have to deal with her anymore.
he decided to not let it get to his head, and maybe some comic book reading would get his mind off his "former sisters." As he kept turning the pages and pages, he started forgetting about what he was even mad about in the first place, and smiled as he was looking at the cool action pictures of Ace Savvy fighting bad guys one by one.
when he was done reading his comics, Lincoln turned on the TV, and turned the channel to the paranormal network. "Today's episode of Monster Catchers is the Maryland Goatman!" Said the announcer."
"alright!" Lincoln cheered.
when he was watching the show, he was really enjoying the information about this cryptid creature.
The facts were simply amazing, from the fact the monster was a scientist before his hideous transformation happened when a genetic experiment went horribly wrong.
Lincoln started to wish he could be like these monster catchers, or the guys fo m "Argh!"
just then, the doorbell rang. And Harold called "I'll get it!"
Lincoln then wondered "hmm, I wonder who that could be. Probably a solicitor, the mailman, or the daily paper." Then he gasped at another thought "or my... former sisters." Then he hid under the covers so they wouldn't find him.
it was just then the door opened, and Lincoln was completely still like a stone, pretending to be like a pile of pillows so none of the girls would try to recognize him. "Lincoln, you're parents are here to see you." Said Harold.
then his eyes bolted up, and then lifted the covers. Harold was right, his parents were right in front of him, looking very worried and concerned. "Oh. Mom, dad. It's just you." He sighed.
"Lincoln, thank goodness you're alright." Said Lynn Sr. then both parents opened their arms and Lincoln walked up and hugged them both. "We were so worried about you back there."
"please don't scare us silly like that, sweetie." Rita added. "What happened?"
"mom, dad, I'm sorry I came here without consulting either one of you, but I am sick of my sis- I mean ex-sisters back at the house. They push me around and bully me too many times, and I had it." He began to feel bitter again.
"what do you mean, champ?" Said Lynn Sr. in confusion.
"they don't love me, they just want me around like I am just a hired help or a means to an end, and all that bullshit!"
Rita gasped "Lincoln! Watch you're language!"
Lincoln made a sigh. "I'm sorry." He stated flatly. "I just don't want to deal with them ever again, they don't really love me." Then he turned his back on them and pouted with his arms crossed.
his dad bent down on one knee, and put his hand on his right shoulder. "Lincoln, your sisters do love you. They all do."
"pfft, yeah right." Lincoln doubted that statement. "They only say that so they can use me."
"They don't use you." said Rita, urging him also. "We miss you, Lincoln. They all miss you."
Lincoln still shrugged it off. "Look, I don't want anything to do with them anymore!" he said, his voice starting to rise to a scream. Then he began to shed a tear from his left eye and held his throat back. "They all tease me and pick on me, like i'm nothing but a practice dummy for a boxing match."
"You know that's not true!"
"Yes it is, dad!" Lincoln countered, turning back around and removing Lynn Sr's hand off his shoulder. "Let's not forget about yesterday, how they accused me about clogging the toilet again, that I clearly did not do!"
"We know, it was Lola that did it, and she didn't want to admit it, and she's sorry she ever did that!" Rita remarked.
"I'm sorry for wrongfully grounding you yesterday." said the father.
"No, I am done with all of them, They are just a bunch of selfish-!" he took a breath "I'm not gonna say it, you guys told me that it was a very evil word to say."
Both parents were glad that he didn't say that awful word on girls, but they were still upset about Lincoln not wanting to come back home. "Son, please listen to reason. Please come back home with us!"
"No! I want nothing to do with them anymore!"
"Hey hey hey, everything okay in here?" asked Howard. He, Harold, and Clyde came in the room to see what the commotion was all about.
"It's fine, guys, we're just having a discussion." Lincoln said to them.
"A loud discussion." Clyde corrected
"right, sorry." and with a change of demeanor, Lincoln shouted at his parents "The answer is no! That is final!"
"When we got home, you're sisters were crying their eyes out!." Rita argued. "They were so miserable without you."
"I don't want to deal with anymore of this, being wrongfully accused and grounded for not fucking reason by them! and be put up with a bunch of fucking whiny bitches for sisters!"
"HEY!" Lynn Sr shouted at his son. "Do not talk about you're sisters like that!"
"I don't want to deal with anymore picking from those evil lowlifes! okay, I know they hate me because I have a nightmare about them saying they hated me, and they sent me to Hell to be tormented for the rest of my afterlife!" then he angrily swiped his comic books off the bed. He was feeling so mad now, that we wanted to just break a window to let his anger out. Instead, he punched the wall, but it had little affect, and it made his fist sore, and he whined in pain.
Both parents saw the anger and despair in Lincoln's eyes, now even more tears were falling from his face, and he fell on his two knees, sobbing quietly.
"Well, this seems like a family matter, come on, family." said Harold.
"Right behind you dad." Clyde agreed hurriedly, then all three McBride's rushed out of the guest room to give them some privacy and not get in a middle of a crossfire.
Both Rita and Lynn Sr bent down to comfort their son, clearly in a state of despair "Why did I have to be put up with such horrible sisters?" he sobbed. "They treat me like pure bullshit."
"Lincoln, they love you." said Lynn Sr."
"I told you they just say that so they can just bully me some more." Lincoln countered. "I hate them! I just wish those sluts would just die!" both his parents were shocked to hear they're son hear that."
"Sweetie, if you can just come back with us, we can show-"
"I just want to be alone!" Lincoln shouted at them at the top of his lungs. "Look, I only left my sisters, not you guys, or the pets, and of course i'll miss you guys. I still love you." then he hugged them again before wiping a tear from his eye. Both his parents hugged him back. "I just hate my ex-sisters so much."
"We love you too, Lincoln." said Lynn Sr "but technically you did leave us, too."
"What i am trying to say is I don't belong at that house. I belong here with Clyde, since he is like a brother I never had in my life before. I never belonged there.
"Don't say that." said Lynn Sr. "You're our only son, and you are one of the best eleven things that ever happened to me and you're mother, we both love you very much with all our hearts."
Lincoln made a small sigh. "look, you guys are always welcome to come here and visit me, as long as you don't bring my sisters."
"But why not come visit our house?" the mom asked
"because I will have to deal with those harpies i call sisters."
"That's enough!" said Rita
"No! I am never coming back there to see my sisters again! I'm happy without them! and they can all burn in hell for all I care!" then he began sobbing again, and went into his bed. He lifted his head off, and said "Please just leave me alone, I just want to be alone."
Lynn Sr, and Rita could hardly bear to see their one and only son like this Both of them reluctantly agreed, but both parents walked up to him, and slowly placed one hand on his naked back. "Listen, Lincoln." said Rita in a soft, motherly voice. "If you ever want to come back, you are always more than welcome to to, sweetie."
"Every one of you're sister love you, Lincoln. So do we." the father added. "And if you ever change you're mind and come back home, we'll be waiting there for you, and so will you're sisters."
Lincoln was silent for a minute, but he finally said "Okay."
"See you later, sweetie."
"Bye Lincoln." then both parents exited the guest room and Lincoln was alone again, sobbing quietly under the covers
it was just then Clyde went in the guest room to check on his best friend to see if he was doing okay. He looked at him with a very sympathetic look in his eyes through his large glasses. "Lincoln, are you okay, pal?"
his best friend lifted his face, looking sad. Lincoln looked at Clyde and said "no." Then he sighed.
Clyde out a hand on his back and patted it gently. "It's okay, buddy. Let it out." He said softly. Lincoln was more than happy to have someone like Clyde by his side. He can always count on Clyde to try and help him.
Back at the Loud House, all the sisters weren't crying so loudly anymore, and there wasn't as much tears like before.
nonetheless, that didn't mean they were feeling better, no, they were the opposite as a matter of fact.
all ten sisters were in their rooms, depressed about Lincoln not living with them anymore. It was just then they heard the front door open and close. It had to be their parents, and they all went downstairs
Rita and Lynn Sr had sad looks on their faces. "This is not good, honey." The father sighed "not good at all."
"well? What did Lincoln say?" Asked Leni
both parents didn't know how to explain this to the kids, and stammered a little. "Well, um- how can we say this, girls." Said the dad
"tell us! What did Lincoln say?" Lola demanded
Rita explained by saying "Lincoln does not want to come back. Turns out he wants nothing to do with all of you, just like you said you didn't"
the girls felt like crying again. "Well Lola, for blaming Lincoln for clogging the toilet, you're grounded for a month!" Said Lynn Sr in anger
"What?! But mom, dad-!"
"don't but mom and dad us!" Rita added. "It's what you get for lying about the toilet, and no beauty pageants either."
"looks like you will have to let Lindsay Sweetwater win this year's cute and kind pageant!" Said Lynn Sr.
"Aww!" Lola kicked at the ground in frustration. "Look, I don't care about that anymore, I just want Lincoln to come back.
"so do we." Lucy added, wiping the black mascara off her cheeks from the falling tears. "We're nothing without our one and only brother."
"Yeah, I want him to see how much we love him so much." Luna agreed. "I just wish we can make him understand."
"Why is Lincoln so angry with us?" Asked Lori
"you called him a twerp you twat!" Luna angrily replied to her. "You're always picking on him the most out of us!"
Lori gave an offended gasp "Me?! Like you're all innocent angels?! Lynn, you're the one always giving him playful games!"
"at least I don't laugh at him when he is looking like Ozzy Osbourne, Luna!"
"don't you pin this on me, it was Lola who is always harsh to him!" Luna defended herself.
then they all began to fight again, causing quite a commotion. "Stop it!" Said Lynn Sr. "fighting solves Nothing! You all know better than that!"
all ten of the sisters stopped their fighting and looked at each other with guilt. "He's right." Said Lana. "We're all to blame here. And we do laugh at him at times, like yesterday when he ripped his underpants. He was really upset about it and we were jerks to him."
"and we got to lay the piper for it, we lost our brother in an instant." Luna said sadly. She. Was too depressed to even thinking of a joke this time, and then she pretending to be trapped in a box again.
"Linky." Lily said really sale-like. Tears were forming in her eyes again. "Linky come back."
Then Charles came in with the broken picture from Lincoln's room in his mouth, then he sat it on the floor. The others looked at it and saw that the glass was shattered, and the picture looked a little crooked from the impact of the fall though the window
Luna took it the worst from this. She began to sob quietly, realizing that Lincoln was serious about disowning them. She remembered about yesterday with the ripped underwear and the clogged toilet, and blamed herself for it. "We need to get Lincoln back."
"we tried getting him back, Luna, it didn't work." Said Rita. "He just... needs to be alone at the time. He just needs to cool off."
"you're mother's right, girls."
"but when will Lincoln come back to us?" Asked Luna. "I just want my brother back."
"we know, Luna, but we don't know for sure when Lincoln will come back. It could be in a week, tomorrow, or sooner or later than that, but we just need to... be patient."
"did you tell him we all miss him?" Asked Leni.
Rita nodded "he didn't believe us though, and he said he was happy being with Clyde and his fathers."
what she said made them all sad and guilt-stricken even more. "In the meantime, it's probably not a good idea to try and go to the house, and get Lincoln back. Because he doesn't even want to look at you anyway." Said Lynn Sr sadly, bowing his head.
all the sisters were unsure about this.
"I don't like this dad, please let me talk to him. I'm the closest to him than anyone else here."
"we know, Luna. I mean, you can try to talk to him, but it probably won't change his mind."
Luna thought about it, and said "well, yeah. Maybe we all just need to leave him a,one for a while."
"we already caused enough damage to him." Said Lori sadly. The other sisters agreed.
"normally I do not care for severe sadness and depression, but WAAHAAHAAA!" Then she began bawling loudly with a fountain of tears raining from her eyes like a garden sprinkler.
the parents then comforted the girls in any way they can by hugging them lovingly. "He'll come back girls. We promise." Said Lynn Sr.
in her head, while looking outside the window at the street where Clyde's house was, she was thinking. "Lincoln, I love you, dude. Please come back to us, I... I'm sorry. You're my reason to live, and you're the heaven in my hell."
hopefully, she can try to bring Lincoln back home, she just needs to think of what she can do to make it happen. For this, she was the one who missed Lincoln the most.
