Waiting for ages was fine if they could put this whole thing behind them. Right?
Tuck smiled tightly at Robin, unable to conceal his nerves as well as Will was. He remembered the last time he'd been here, watching his dear friends Robin and Will Scarlet being sentenced. He had been holding Marian's hand then, hoping for light sentences and ready to be there for her when they read out how long her love would be separated from her. Now he was was Will's partner and he was going to watch someone who didn't even know the man he loved, pass judgement on him.
He wished Marian were here to hold his hand.
Robin turned with them and all three of them headed into the courthouse to sit in the waiting room and wait their turn. Tuck's hand itched to hold Will's but he didn't know if Will would welcome that, so he reached out to pat his partner's shoulder instead.
