Manuel had come up to the City as soon as he'd heard the news to join them, but now he was back in Philadelphia, having to return to make sure their dogs were fed now that they knew Kat was going to be okay. Erica was supposed to be back there as well, working on a translation she'd promised. But it would have to wait. She didn't care if they paid her less. All that mattered was Kat not having to be all alone in the hospital.
First Miranda, now Kat. This was the second time this year that she had almost lost one of her children and when Erica looked down at her hands she found they were shaking and she clasped them tightly together with a sigh.
The corridor was quiet, visiting hours long over. Erica didn't know if Hermes had managed to talk someone into letting the two of them stay. She only knew that they were there and no one tried to move Erica from the chair.
Now as Kat slept, Erica sat out in the corridor finishing a text to Miranda who'd asked how things were going at the hospital. She felt her reply came off far more assured than she felt.
