Once she had been placed atop of her brother, her legs fell on either side of him while she used her hands to keep her balance by placing them upon his shoulders. After sharing an 'Eskimo kiss' with him, the smile on her face remained until he had closed his eyes in that pained expression; it faded somewhat.
She knew the intensity of their bond all too well, and sometimes it was even overwhelming for her to experience. There had been a time in her life (as well as his own) when they became truly separated from each other. Needless to say, Betsy was in no rush to relive that feeling again; it had her hurt more than she would ever care to say or admit, but it made her realize just how important her relationship with her brother meant to her.
'Absence made the heart grow fonder,' was an expression that seemed to fit. She had known she had made one of the biggest (if not the biggest) mistake of her life when she left the Institute... her brother. But, she was all too consumed in her own grief to be able to realize it at the time.
She had been given a second chance, and she'd be damned if she was going to screw it up again.
You have no idea how lost I was without you, she projected to him psychically, her eyes closed for the moment.
One hand had drifted upward and it came to rest on the side of Brian's handsome jaw and she gently caressed it with her thumb.
