When Crimson emerged at last from the bathroom, the house was empty, and silent. She had heard the kids come thundering down the stairs, heard the muffled worried voices outside the door. Kristopher had told the others what he saw, explained as best he could. A child left to explain his fathers absence, while his mother sobbed in the nearby room. Heather had softly knocked on the door "Mum? You alright?" she asked softly, wanting her mother to open the door, to tell her Kris was wrong. "I'm fine Heath, just not feeling great" she replied before bursting into a fresh wave of sobs. She had hardly been aware of the bus outside the house and the kids leaving.
On an ordinary day, Crimson would relish the silence of the house at this time. With three rowdy kids (and Peanut) living in tight quarters, this was often the only time Crimson had to really think without disruption. Today, the silence was an unwelcome reminder of what had happened and she feared it would drive her mad. She fled the house for the sanctuary of the Art Gallery.
She stood there wondering where it had all gone wrong. She thought back to that night that seemed so very long ago. Back to the dimly light bar where she lad first laid eyes upon Hank. The glance from across the shuffleboard table. Their eyes had locked and Crimson had known that she would never be the same again. She saw herself sliding up to him, introducing herself to him. His deep voice had made her knees go a little weak, and when their hands had met it was like an electric current shooting through her body.
He smiled sadly at the thought of that sensation. It had never gone away, that feeling. If anything it had intensified the more he touched her and the more she grew to love him. She had felt it right up to the last time Hank had touched her, right before what would be their final fight . She dissolved into renewed tears.
