    Summary

    It comes back to him in flashes. Haunting him.

    There’s something about the sparks of intense colours dancing across his mind that breaks him more than the empty, pooling darkness. Glittering pom-poms, bright tinny music, soft laughter; they all somehow hurt so much. He sometimes thinks he’d much rather suffer the play-by-play of it all – the graceful rise of her body, her whited-out irises, the crunching snap of her limbs, the wet sucking of her eyeballs, the horror on her face and all that crimson soaking into the pristine green and white of her uniform – than remember that she used to be happy. And worse; that he couldn’t save her.

    A (sort-of) rewrite of Eddie and Chrissy’s story because I can’t get them out of my head and they both deserved better.

    Summary

    He’d tried to catch her.

    Eddie hasn’t said as much, but Chrissy knows it’s true. Her elbow aches like it’s going to bruise, and the split in his lip tells her why.

    She had escaped hell to find herself cradled to Eddie Munson’s chest, tear tracks streaked down his face as the radio he’d bumped in his panic to get to her played an old song she’d known from her father’s car on Sunday mornings, blood dripping down her leg from where she’d skinned it against the carpet, and enough fear on her face to make him choke on her name.

    He’d been shaking.

    It had rattled her down to her bones.

    Chrissy picks up the pieces. Eddie's pretty good at putting them back together again.

    Summary

    “You’ve found yourself some nice friends, kid.” Eddie stirs and his face screws up in unconscious pain, reminding Wayne almost of the way he looks when he’s concentrating, when he’s playing his guitar or coming up with ideas for that game he loves so much. “You gotta try not to move around too much, you got that? They had to patch you up pretty good, and once you wake up, I doubt you’re gonna want to go back under.”

    “You get as much rest as you need, alright?” Wayne manages over the lump in his throat. “We’ll figure everything out when you’re back.”

    or, Eddie lives, hospitals suck, and Wayne comes to realize he means just as much to his nephew as Eddie does to him.
