Excerpt: She brought her hands up and placed them on her face. She cried silently wishing she could’ve done something for her sister. She blamed herself for everything. Suddenly she felt something wrap around her. She opened her eyes and saw Jensen, “Jensen?” He tightened his hold around her pulling her against his chest, her head resting on it and her arms around him. He said “It’s okay” She sat there for a minute, then her pain started rising to the surface and she hugged him tight crying into his chest.
He sat silently letting her cry. He knew she needed it. He knew what it was like to lose someone close to him. Her sobs grew thick and she cried hard against his chest letting all the pain that had built up over the years out. They stayed that way for a long time. Eventually he laid down pulling her closer into his chest resting a hand on top of her head and the other around her. She cried for a long time torment and anguish spilling out of her. He lay there, never losing patience.
He simply closed his eyes and let her release her sadness. An hour later she finally quieted trembling in his arms. “Are you a little bit better now?” She brought her head up to look at him. She stared into his eyes then she nodded. He brushed away the stray tears. “If you have nowhere to go then you can stay here as long as you want to. I never got the opportunity to thank you for your help. I’m very grateful. I’m sorry about your sister.”
