Agitare Intus (4:46 PM)
Lai cried, feeling the hot water soak into her skin, the water turning pink reminding her she needed to talk. “I-I was handing o-out fliers, for my studio, and I-I was almost done w-when I saw a car with a baby l-left alone in it,” she sputtered out as she grabbed the water, scrubbing at her skin as if she intended to rip it off. She could finally smell the blood, and it made her want to puke, “I saw th-that it was parked near a house w-with the door open, so I th-thought it was alright t-to go in and see w-what was going on, and there were men over a woman, sh-she was beat, and I went to punch one, turns out he had a gun…” her voice shook, as she felt the tears streaming down her cheeks.
“T-Turns out, he was just trying to h-help too, but h-he ended up shooting the real abuser, and took off, I h-had to call the cops Lyle, I g-got his blood on me,” she has scrubbed all the blood off from her skin, tossing the shirt into the trash as she lay against him in her bra. “I, I just want to stay here, but I-I have to go in and I.D. the guy…” she muttered, crying onto his chest.
He tried to soothe her frantic hands, scrubbing violently at skin that was still half covered by clothing wouldn’t do her much good. His hands slid across the blood stained areas tried to the wipe it away, wipe away everything that had happened to her today. “I’m gonna go with you, you aren’t going alone” He assured her, running his fingers slowly through her hair trying to keep her in one piece, he needed her to be okay. That was all he wanted, anyone else involved in whatever happened today mattered less than Alaizabel. She was the only other person on this planet in his mind right now.
Lyle whispered a litany of you’re okay’s into her skin. He needed to assure her that she was safe, he’d die before he let her take anything else onto her psyche. “I’m gonna go with you, and then we’re gonna come home and curl up in bed and you’re gonna show me all of the wedding plans, okay Elvira?” He was doing everything he could to keep his voice from trembling. He needed to hold himself together to hold her together.
