Ugh was I in a depressed mood when I drew this.
Anyways, since Thomas lost his parents when he was in middle school, it was very hard on him. When he moved in with Eric's family, he really did not speak or leave his room for about 6 months. When he finally began to open up, he really only communicated with Eric, and Eric really acted as a big brother instead of a cousin. I might go into this story more later on.
