Stop the world... attn: JACK (lol)

I stare at the light in the ceiling for a while, my eyes blurring out before sliding closed again as I drift in and out of sleep, comfortable against the pain, just a dull thumping ache down my side to keep me aware. Hearing Nina's voice, I shift onto my side, then regret it and roll onto my back once again, tucked under the blanket, unwilling to wake up just yet, but knowing that I'll have to sooner than later.

Leaning against Jack's desk, I watch him for a few minutes. He tries to turn towards me and it's obvious that it's causing him pain. I start towards him to help him get comfortable, but he rolls onto his back again and calms. I'm halfway across the office and stand there again for a few minutes, looking around. I haven't had a day like this since...well, suffice to say it's been a long time.

A lifetime, it seems.

Finally, I sink down to sit on the low table in front of the couch Jack is on. Sighing, I cover my face with both hands, pushing my hands back in my hair. My elbows rest on my knees and I stare at the ground, worried about Jack.
