A lead weight had settled in Thomas' stomach from the moment his mother had called. His father had been dying for years now, but this was the true end. The final moments. And if they wanted to be with William when he drew his last breath, now was the time.
Thomas left his wife to get their car ready, and he headed to Jamie's new place, only two houses away thanks to a very thoughtful Phantasos. The door was answered by a sleepy-looking Jayden, who offered Thomas a bright smile before recognising the stormy look on Thomas' face.
"Hi, Thomas! Jamie's- Oh god, what's wrong?"
Thomas offered Jayden a small smile, because he hardly wanted the young man to worry, but he wasn't going to tell Jayden before he told Jamie. "I need to speak to my son, Jayden."
"Right, okay. Come inside," Jayden shooed him inside. "Sit. I'll go get him," he said, dashing upstairs to Jamie's room. "Jamie! Jamie, your dad's here! He looks real serious!"
