Just in time

Recommended Posts

Alice was still dwindling as she lay there with Tonka stroking her hair telling her stories about her brothers.

It would be a whirlwind as Seth arrived at the gates with the Prussian blue and other medical supplies that Violet had weighted down her pack with. He was held at the gate to be sure that he was not bringing anything extra in as the medication was whisked away.

“Just doing standard checks. Shouldn’t be but a few more minutes before you’re released,” they said. Which was true. It would be a few minutes and they would clear him.

 It would take another few minutes before he’d get to where Alice was. She was still asleep but Tonka was sitting in a chair beside the bed. “You’re back!”

It took most of his self restraint to wait, even more when they finally let him into the station. Seth all but ran to the med bay, slowing only just before the door to compose himself before he pushed it open. 

"I promised I would be," he answered his sister, going straight in to embrace her tightly, "how you holding up little sister?"

“I’m okay,” having something, or in this case someone, to focus on helped distract her enough from the rest of what had happened. “Dr Brass said you got here just in time,” she said. “She’s not sure it will save the baby but it should save Alice.”

Seth rubbed his neck as Tonka left the room, twisting briefly back toward Alice. 

He was about to go to her, but there wasn't time. Two nurses came into the room. One of them paused to explain that they needed to administer the next round of treatment. 

He just nodded once and stepped out into the hall, staying close and waiting for his sister to come back with Red. In the meantime he just pleaded for Violet to be holding on still. He couldn't stand the thought of losing her again so soon after finally reuniting... even less so if it was his fault. 

And if she didn't make it back, it would be his fault.

Red was admittedly surprised to find Tonka waiting after the guard had come to fetch him. The way the last of it had panned out, it had been starting to seem she was going to follow through on her threat. 

"Hey," he greeted as he approached where she was waiting, "you okay?"
