Zaiden decided to visit Zander at the asylum. It had been awhile since he had seen him. He was hoping they would be able to have a normal visit.
Zaiden signed in at the nurses’ desk then headed for the garden where he was told his brother was.
He found Zander setting on at a table reading a book. “Hi, Zander.”
Zander looked up when he heard his name. He dropped the book and hugged his brother. “You came back. I knew you would. Did you bring me anything?”
Zaiden gave him the bag he had brought with him. “Your favorite. Cheeseburgers.”
Zander took the bag and sat it on the table so he could eat.
“How are you doing?” Zaiden worried a lot about his brother.
“I am okay. This place isn’t too bad. The people are really nice, but the food is terrible. I really miss everybody. I thought that Mom and Dad would visit, but they haven’t.”
Zaiden frowned as he listened to Zander. “Mom and Dad are both dead, Zander. You know that.”
Zander shook his head. “I saw Dad in South America. I know Mom was with him. He wouldn’t go on a trip without her. They must be back by now. Will you ask them to visit me? And ask Mom if she will bring me some cookies.”
Zaiden hadn’t realized that Zander was as bad as he was. The poor kid was delusional. He didn’t know what to do. “I will see what I can do.”
