WHO: Henry, Addy and Iestyn Ceredig WHEN: FriYAY afternoon WHERE: Hospital WHAT: Henry finally seeing Addy WARNINGS: Mentions of her suicide attempt
Henry was nervous as all hell.
The last time he had seen Addy, he had been forced to save her life. He had gotten her to vomit and ended up covered in it, reliving his own trauma. Walking in on her still form, sprawled on the floor - the image of it still haunted his nightmares. So when he got the call that he had been added to her visitation list, he had told Iestyn he wanted to go in right away.
And now he was scared. He still felt angry at her for putting him in that position, deep down. He had ranted to his therapist about it, and Iestyn knew. He was determined not to bring that up today though. Today he just wanted to see with his own two eyes that she really was okay.
Iestyn and Henry passed through security and entered on to the ward. Henry was clinging to Iestyn's hand, probably a little too tightly, and Iestyn would be able to feel just how shaky Henry was. They reached Addy's door, and the moment they poked their heads inside, Addy flashed them such a bright smile that Henry felt like he'd finally crested the surface after being pulled under the ocean by a powerful wave.
"My boys!" she squealed, jumping off the bed so she could run over to them. She pulled Henry in for a hug and the second Henry wrapped his arms around Addy, he knew he was going to cry. His throat spasmed and he tried so hard to hold it back, but he burst into tears anyway, and he held her tighter.
"Aww, Henry," Addy soothed, rubbing his back as Henry cried into her shoulder. She smiled over him to her twin, but her main focus was trying to calm Henry down. "It's okay, I'm okay."
