    Summary

    Response to chelsie-anon post: "Mrs. Hughes?" He found her standing in the darkness, staring out as the rain lashed against the library windows. He worried; she had been winding herself tighter and tighter over the past week or so, ever since that first visit from Sergeant Willis. Stepping up behind her, careful to keep his voice low and calm, "I'm on your side…" His hand hovered near her shoulder, almost afraid to touch her for fear she would shatter into a thousand pieces at his feet.

    Summary

    Thomas and the new maid, Lara, have become good enough friends- he thought they had an understanding- but apparently not.
    Jimmy is left to try and awkwardly explain why Thomas is rebuffing her advances but Lara doesn't seem to understand. So Thomas decides the only way for her to believe them is to show her.

    Comedy with a bit of lust thrown in for good measure.
