The shower didn't help.

Cheek throbbing, she pulls her green terrycloth towel tighter around herself.

She needs to get dressed, she needs to wake Bill —

(she's sorry, she's so sorry)

He hurries after leaving Fiona, rushing enough that he trips up on the stairs and almost forgets to search the hallway for anyone around before entering Kate's room.

His palms have become sweaty and he's out of breath when he steps in, eyes frantically searching for her.

When he sees the bathroom door still closed, and the light coming out from underneath, the fear gripping his heart releases and he pulls in a deep breath.

Thank God.

Trying to calm himself he makes sure the door is locked then takes another look around the room.

Now that he knows she's still here, anger replaces the knot of fear in his chest and he starts looking for the gun.

He's digging in a drawer when he hears her voice. Shutting it, he moves on to the one beneath it.

"What?"
wheelsy_sheriff: (concern)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2009-09-09 05:54 am (UTC)(link)
"Where's the -- "

Something in her voice halts his question, a tremor in her words, and he shuts the dresser while turning his head towards her.

"Kate?"

Fear floods his insides again and he moves closer to the bathroom, reaching out for the door.

"Y'didn't -- where'd you go?"
wheelsy_sheriff: (concern)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2009-09-09 06:18 am (UTC)(link)
No.

"Kate-- "

He shakes his head, standing on the other side of the door, looking at her through the crack it's opened.

"Why'd you -- "

He knows why. He wants to be mad, but he can't, not when she did this for him, not when her voice is unsteady and she's not looking at him.

He wants to ask what happened, but he can't. Not yet.

Working his throat slowly he lifts his hand to cup her cheek.

"It's gonna be alright."
wheelsy_sheriff: (it's wrong)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2009-09-09 06:34 am (UTC)(link)
He pulls his hand back quickly, eyes wide.

"Kate -- "

Stepping into the bathroom, he tries to look at her; his heart pounds hard in his chest.

"Kate, what happened? Lemme see."

He doesn't even think to use the mirror, his eyes locked on her.
wheelsy_sheriff: (tell me)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2009-09-09 01:43 pm (UTC)(link)
"Kate, I told you -- " He stops and shakes his head.

He can see her trembling and wants to hold her, but doesn't know if he should. Hesitantly, he reaches out and puts a hand on her shoulder.

"Tell me what happened."

Her eyes are red, and one is puffier than the other.

"What did he do?"

His words are low and measured as he restrains growing anxiety.
wheelsy_sheriff: (somethin' wrong)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2009-09-09 02:41 pm (UTC)(link)
"He -- "

He sees the flash of pain that crosses her features, and the blood that's seeping from her nose.

"He hit you, didn't he?"

He doesn't wait for her answer. He turns quickly, nearly slipping on the damp tile as he strides out of the bathroom, headed for the front door; anger flooding hot through his system.

He looks down at her, hand clenched around the doorknob, but not turning it.

"I'm not lettin' him get away with this, Kate. I don't care who the hell he is, he's not gonna -- " His eyes go to her cheek and his jaw tightens. "I'm'a make him pay for that."

His knuckles turn white on the handle and he looks away from her, staring hard at the woodgrain of the door.

Blood is rushing in his ears and he has so much anger with no where to put it.

"He did this just t'rile me up."
wheelsy_sheriff: (I'm telling you)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2009-09-09 04:54 pm (UTC)(link)
"It's not okay!"

He lets go of the door and turns on her.

"I told you t'let me handle this. I told you to stay away from him!"

Picturing Ramon with his gun on Katherine in the stables, Bill's anger shoots up higher, fueled by fear of what could have happened to Kate, what could still happen, because now Ramon knows she's involved.

"He coulda hurt you, Kate. He did hurt you, an' I can't do a damn thing about it because of what else he might do."
wheelsy_sheriff: (doesn't mean a thing)

His mouth shuts and he glances at Boo's door. He looks at Kate and sees how close she is to falling apart and it makes his heart ache.

"Kate -- "

I'm sorry.

His hands, which have been clenched into tight fists, uncurl at his sides, and he works his throat slowly.

"You shouldn't've -- "

God, I'm sorry.

"I would've done it."
