He hadn't expected this, people, so many people and SHE was screaming in his head to let her out, that this was nothing, that they were so close to having Dawn, to winning. Dawn meant a way home for her and freedom for him, and power too, she'd promised him power. And she wasn't lying. He could tell. She couldn't lie to the other half of her. He got her back, she'd make him powerful, and he'd grown to be decidedly okay with that, so Dawn it was.
He'd arrived bearing donuts which he was sure would never be eaten, and coffee too. He'd been directed to the medical centre, where Dawn was, and not alone.
"I have more, if you want to help me carry them in Dawn?" he said to start, it was a simple ploy, one he wasn't even sure would work,, but it would lessen the need for Her to come, It was better if he did this. Dawn knew him, trusted...she trusted him. He had to use that to do this without a struggle. No use spilling the blood too early. Not to mention he was still fragile as Glory so often reminded him. He was weak, she was strong. Thats how it had always been. If it got bad, she'd protect him.
He hoped so much it didn't get bad. But it would. Of course it would.
That and he didn't want to spend too much time around the ones Glory had taken. They sometimes said things, knew things. And there were too many people here.
