Who: Caleb & Alice
What: Where else would Caleb go?
When: backdated Saturday (because I also fail at life) right after this
When Caleb ran from the hospital he had no idea where he was going, all he knew is he wanted to get away from that room. He wanted to run away from what happened, he knew it was stupid but part of him hoped that if he ran fast enough and ran far enough it wouldn't have happened. Adrian wouldn't have jumped and played hero like he did. Sure he knew that meant that he'd be in his partner's position but at that moment he would trade their places without a thought. They made that weapon to kill him...he should be the one paying the price...not Adrian...not Josie...not their kids...him...just him. He stopped running as he did a half wheeze and scrunched his eyes up trying not to cry. When he glanced at the building he had stopped in front of it made perfect sense of why he stopped. It was Alice's building...his baby sister. She always knew how to make everything better. She'd make this better...or at least better than it currently was.
Caleb had been to Alice's current apartment once...he brought her flowers as an apology for something he did...he didn't remember what for. It was also a celebration of his ankle monitor being removed. But even though her apartment wasn't mapped out in his mind he was practically on auto pilot to her door. He did three quick knocks, he wanted to see her, have that "little sister, everything is gonna be okay" vibe of her's to wash over him. His whole mind was cracking apart and he knew Alice was the only one who could help him hold it together.
