Thomas gave Jamie's shoulder a squeeze and then he led his son out and towards the car.
The drive was understandably silent as they headed towards his parents' home. Thomas parked in the driveway and he waited until Jamie piled out of the car before heading inside, using his key.
"Mom? Mother?" Thomas didn't even bother taking his coat off after he closed the door behind him, he just headed into the house to find his mother.
Emma was sitting at her kitchen table, staring into a cup of tea she clearly didn't intend to drink. "Oh, Mom." Thomas knelt on the floor in front of her so he could hug her without her having to stand.
