Liam has been dead for three weeks, his body laid out on the bed, cleaned up and in pajamas. He'd look like he was sleeping, were it not for the fact that he hasn't been breathing.

Until now.

He revives with a choked gasp and an aborted attempt to sit. He'd wake with a yell, but there isn't the air in his lungs to allow it, and instead he winds up curled on his side, taking deep, desperate gasps of air.

Kevin stood as soon as he moved, although he didn't reach to touch him, gaze never leaving Liam as he dragged in air. His hands clenched at his sides but he waited, giving the other man time to adjust to the shock before he actually moves closer or tries to check on him.

But seeing him alive again is a relief. Something he might not be able to put into words but at least he's back now and if Kevin has anything to do about it, this incident won't be repeated.

Kevin doesn't move, letting him adjust but when Liam speaks, he moves to sit on the edge of the bed, carefully.

"...Kevin, actually. You've been gone three weeks." The words were quiet, and Kevin kept his hands to himself for the moment.

"...What do you remember, Liam?"

"...If it was, it was a mansion wide nightmare. Gwen's been looking after the child version of you, by the way. "

Kevin noted he didn't answer the other question but would let it go for now, instead just watching him.

"..There was more than one?" Kevin's voice sharpened, his eyes locking on Liam again.

Liam wasn't expecting to find the door locked since there's been so many people checking on this Liam's… body. It's always been unlocked before. Feeling the doorknob catch under her hand makes her pause. After a moment of slight panic she gets her fingers to release the doorknob and tentatively knocks.

If there isn't a reply she fully intends to pick the lock to make sure there isn't some Chain trying to mess with the body or something of that nature going on.

A voice, an actual voice. Does that mean-- is he actually-- it had been so long, she had started to think…

She takes a moment to steady her own voice before she responds.

"Liam? I-is that you? It's the female Liam."

She just stares at him for several long moments, taking in how tired he look but at the same time, how alive. Before she can stop herself she reaches out, as if touching him will confirm he really is there, only catching herself when her fingers are inches from his cheek.

"It's really… you're back. I mean, I'm glad you're back. We missed you."

He'd considered bringing the chessboard with him, but knowing the way that their games usually ended, he decides against it in the end. He doesn't want to cause the young man any undue stress after all!

But he does bring a warm pot of tea with him as he pokes his head into Liam's bedroom door, knocking before entering.

"Liam? Are you awake?"

Date: 2011-11-02 05:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] unclednw.livejournal.com
Sorry, Liam. The Will of the house is trolling you again.

He steps in all the way and holds up his tea tray, smiling wide, as though the young man didn't just spend several weeks playing dead for real.

"A little birdie told me that you were recovering from some illness or another! So I've come to keep you company a while!"

"You can thank me later when you're out of bed," he answers with a wink. Discarding his jacket on the nearest chair, he then sets to rolling up his sleeves and pouring two cups of tea.

"How do you take yours?"

From: [personal profile] flusterbuns
She knows when he wakes, of course, just as she'd known when he died. The very instant he draws his first breath, all the feelings of shame and uselessness she's been grappling with since his murder rush back tenfold, and for that reason, it's a while before Hare can bring herself to visit him.

But it's only right that she should. He's her Contractor, after all.

So, a few days after Liam has opened his eyes, Hare finally works up the courage to go to his door. The Chain knocks timidly at first, and then louder. Clutched in her other hand are the earrings she bought for herself at the festival. She wants to tell him about how later, she's going to be brave.

From: [personal profile] flusterbuns
Hare bravely keeps her eyes open when she hears him at the door, and bravely looks him in the eye once it opens.

But then, he apologizes to her, and that just won't work.

So the little Chain bravely flings herself at him and cries all over his chest. There's a lot she wants to say, too, but for now she can't squeeze the words out past the sobs.

From: [personal profile] flusterbuns
"You're not, you're not," she says, leaning up to push her face into his neck -- as best she can, being such a petite Chain. Her glasses will get all smeared, between his skin and her tears, but that doesn't matter right now.

"I'm sorry!" the Chain practically wails. "I'm sorry I wasn't there, I went but I -- I didn't get there fast enough and I'm sorry, and I'm sorry I couldn't have helped even if I did because I'm too little and weak and I'm sorry I'm too weak and -- and -- I'm sorry I'm not brave enough, and --"
