Kate shifts her weight on the stepladder, and twists slightly, all the better to reach the junction box. This new chrome fixture is going to be a gorgeous accent, if she can -- just --

"Ow ow ow ow ow."

She drops the wrench, and presses down on the pinched skin between her thumb and forefinger. A thin line of blood blooms beneath the pressure she applies; she bites her lower lip, blinking hard, and determinedly does not look at her reflection in the bathroom mirror.

She's not going to cry.

She's not.

Bill makes it home from the station and his sidetrip to Milliways, and he's smiling, glad that he can deliver good news to Kate for once.

The bottle of bourbon from Raylan still in hand, he walks through the house; heading for the bathroom when he doesn't find Kate in the kitchen or living room.

Hearing the clatter of metal on tile, and Kate's murmuring, he pokes his head around the door and peeks in.

"Kate?"
wheelsy_sheriff: (explain)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 05:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Hearing her tone and sniffle he steps into the bathroom.

"Kate, y'alright?"

Setting his bottle down on the unfinished counter, he steps up to her, leaning to try and get a look at her.
wheelsy_sheriff: (close conversation)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 06:07 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh, ow." He winces for her, and reaches out to take her hand.

"Wrench bit ya, huh?"

He smooths his thumb along her hand below the pinch, giving her a soft smile.
wheelsy_sheriff: (you sly dog)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 06:23 pm (UTC)(link)
He keeps rubbing, then takes her hand in both of his and presses a kiss onto the back of hers.

Glancing over at the bottle, he chuckles and shakes his head, smile growing.

"Nope. I got that from Raylan."
wheelsy_sheriff: (big smile)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 06:47 pm (UTC)(link)
He sees that half hope and smiles wider to encourage it and reassure her.

"Yep. Left a note for me with Bar. He's fine, an' the place looks good."
wheelsy_sheriff: (sheriff smiles)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 07:08 pm (UTC)(link)
He lets her go, giving her room to get down, but hovering close in case she needs support.

"Yep, walkin' out of the station."
wheelsy_sheriff: (close conversation)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 07:31 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yeah." He nods, and the relief he felt when he walked into Milliways returns. "Place is fine."

He squeezes her hand, passing on comfort and reassurance.

"Raylan left a note, an' I ran into Doc an' Will. No one really knows what happened or why, but everyone came through it okay."
wheelsy_sheriff: (soft smile)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 08:32 pm (UTC)(link)
That smile cures him of his own tension surrounding the mystery of what was going on in Milliways, and it makes him feel good to see her better, knowing what she was going through these last few weeks.

"Milliways pulls through again."
wheelsy_sheriff: (big smile)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
He steps closer, resting his hands on her hips.

"We'll have t'get you back there soon so you can visit, too."

Bowing his head closer to hers, his smile quirks into one that's more amused and pleased.

"Yeah well, folks missed me. Had t'do the welcome back proper an' all."
wheelsy_sheriff: (sheriff smiles)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 09:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Bill chuckles and gives a nod.

"Yeah, real generous. That's top shelf bourbon there."

Nodding at the bottle, he leans back in to rest his forehead against hers.

"He said it might help in dealin' with the Twilight Zone that happened."
wheelsy_sheriff: (smirk)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 09:26 pm (UTC)(link)
His eyes slide closed when her lips press to his skin, and his features are warm when his eyes reopen.

"I figure that's the best way t'look at it so the whole thing don't make me nuts."
wheelsy_sheriff: (man pretty)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 09:31 pm (UTC)(link)
He tries for a mock surprised look but only gets a wider grin for his efforts.

"You callin' me crazy, Kate?"
wheelsy_sheriff: (smiley)

[personal profile] wheelsy_sheriff 2012-05-29 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"Hmm... " He strokes her hips, thumbing the rivets on the pockets of her jeans as he mulls her words over.

"I reckon, as long as you keep up the story that I'm in my right mind when we're in public."
