While Bes is ashamed to admit to himself, let alone anyone else, that he had not called his East Coast faux family since the strange sickness, he is quick to pick up the phone once the news story hits. His own illness coupled with that of his young bride plus two small children... Well, he could be forgiven from being distracted. He, however, won't forgive himself.

So he picks up the phone and takes it to a quiet room in the small house he and Erato share with their sons and, as he waits for the phone to pick up, he paces... And mutters to himself.


C'mon. Oh, sweet God above, c'mon. Answer. Please...

The phone was answered, but the sound of high-pitched wind could be heard in the background. Tyler yelled to be heard.

"I don't know who this is, but this ain't the damn time!"

Bes!? Sorry, been getting all kinds of shit calls since it happened

The big man seemed to give an almost inaudible sob.

I guess you heard.

Yeah..Boss..Boss ain't talking to nobody. He's just sitting in front of the bed while his storm rages outside. He seems to acknowledge Meri when she talks to him, but he still doesn't say anything. Little Bit's trying to be brave, but she had no clue this kind of thing could even happen.

Hang on, let me try.

The phone is laid down. After a minute the phone is picked up again.

"..B..Bes?"

Y..Yes..the storm's just to keep people out. Daddy's not hurting anyone..b-but, he's gonna. He's gonna find the bastards that killed Mommy!

While she had been holding back crying before, she isn't able to now as she yells angrily.

He's going to kill all of them! She's fully crying now. How..why..why is Mommy dead!?

Daddy's so sad. He's trying to be tough for us, but he won't talk.

Meri takes a deep breath, trying to tap into the analyst side of her that she had inherited from her mother.

Yes..we were. Daddy brought in doctors and machines so we wouldn't have to worry about those god-haters while in the hospital. We were all equally sick. Then at midnight, Daddy and I got better. Daddy became his old self again, but Mommy..Mommy stopped breathing. The doctors tried, but...

She stops a moment, holding back more crying.

Mommy looks so peaceful..like she's sleeping.

I see...

She's quiet for a time.

Not a lot of proof of that..but I'll hope for it.

It's about her Mommy, logic be damned.

Just me, Tyler, and Daddy. Daddy told the staff to leave after Mommy died. Tyler insisted on staying. Daddy didn't say it, but I think he appreciated it. Daddy's been upstairs ever since, sitting by Mommy's bed while his storm keeps people out.

I don't think he'd say so out loud,, but I think Daddy needs it. You go ahead and come up. I'll convince him.

I never got to meet him...

Her tone goes sad again, but she recovers quickly.

Okay. Do what you have to Bes.

I'll hold you to that.

I will. Mommy wouldn't sit around and cry..so I won't either.
