Jamie smiled as he did before relaxing in his arms, wiping away her tears she looked at Monkey, her smile growing as he pretty much drooled all over himself and Seb. “Maybe he’s actually trying to make a river.” She observed before holding out her hand. She looked at Seb as he asked the chances of them going home tonight. Though she would have loved to go home and just cling to him with Aiden in their bed, he was in too bad of condition. “As likely as us meeting John Lennon. I could try sneaking you out but I’d probably get fired. Monkey and I can stay until they release you though. In the mean time we can probably plan our great get away. Let’s go away somewhere.” Her tone was very serious. “We can ask the old woman to watch the animals and the three of us just go on an adventure. We could go to the netherlands and check that off our lift of seeing the world just like we said. Or England. France, Italy, Greece. You name it.” She smiled. She always wanted to go see the world and when Seb promised to see it with her he knew she took promises seriously. She was going to lead him all over the world, that was her plan… And hope, unlike their honeymoon to Japan, they didn’t come back with a bun in the oven.
"Maybe..or maybe his hand is just that damn tasty," Seb replied, breathing out a small laugh which soon proved to be a horrible mistake. His torso hurt like crazy and he closed his eyes tightly, willing the pain to fade quickly. If only things worked like that. When she first said that his chances of leaving that evening was about as high as them meeting John Lennon, Seb frowned. He let out a small sigh before she began talking about going away. He wouldn’t mind that, desperate to put distance between him and this asylum. If he wasn’t in the asylum, then the demon could not hurt him, right? Right. Sebastian nodded a little, listening to her speak about all the possible places they could visit. It was more than tempting and he would have been lying if he dared say he wasn’t considering it. "We could go away.." he stated after a moment of thought. "Wherever you want to go. Anywhere that isn’t here. What about you, Monkey?" He looked down at the baby as he spoke, giving the child a small smile. "Where do you wanna go?" but not surprisingly, he didn’t get much more of a reply than a small snort of laughter and a line of drool which he cleaned off with a bit of his blanket. "Well, it’s settled. We’ll go somewhere…amusing."
As Jamie began to cry in his arms she mentally kicked herself but as carefully and lightly as possible cuddled into him. It was not okay, it felt like it’d never be okay… Unless she killed whoever dare touched her Sebby. She wanted them to pay for ever crossing her family. But, Seb probably knew it was a demon that did this and he would keep her from doing it if he knew… She didn’t want to worry him, she didn’t want to upset him or cause him more pain, just make him happy and make the whole situation better. So, she gave a small nod before smiling at his words. She looked up at him with tear filled eyes and smiled. “Do you think I’d even let you out of the bed let alone the house if you haven’t? I made a rule a long time ago we’re not allowed to start the day until I have at least 10 kisses.” Which this was actually true. She probably made the rule up before they ever got married during that week when she was still dead and spent a week skipping therapy and ignored her job as death to be with him. But, at that time she feared she wouldn’t really get to marry him despite his proposal and wanted to have all the time she could get with him. “I love you, too.” She smiled with a soft sniffle.
Sebastian gave Jamie a soft smile as she spoke of her rule about not starting the day with at least 10 kisses. It was one of the countless things he loved about her. As she stated that she loved him too, his smile grew. He was still in pain and terrified, but knew that he had to pull himself together for both her and Aiden. He looked down at the baby as he kicked his legs and babbled a little, drooling all over his fist. Despite the situation, he did consider himself lucky. He was alive and had his family. Honestly, he didn’t know what he would do if he lost either of them. Just the thought alone made his chest ache horribly and the smile fade from his face, but he didn’t allow himself to stay stuck on the thought. No, his family was right here with him and that was all that mattered. “What do you think are the chances that they will let me go home today?, ” he asked though he knew it was impossible. He hated hospitals and longed to be in their bed, warm and safe.
"But I should have. I always came with you…" She sniffled softly trying to keep herself from crying. "You probably got lost and I’m always the one to find you, remember? Even when I had horrible sight and…" Her stopped as her voice broke. She wasn’t going to cry, I’m not going to cry, we don’t cry. No crying. She tried telling herself before watching him worriedly as he moved to make room for her. She could tell he was in pain and she wanted to go get him something stronger but when he beckoned her, her body began to move on its own towards him. She carefully moved so she wouldn’t move him as she laid at his side. I’m not going to cry, I’m not going to cry. She started to cry. When she gently placed her head on his chest and arm it was like the water gates opened and she just couldn’t control them. “I-I’m sorry, S-Sebby.” She felt like she deserved worst wife of the year award. She failed to keep him safe and failed to be strong for him.
Sebastian looked at Jamie as she struggled to keep her tears from falling and spoke. He hated seeing her sad more than anything and for her to carry guilt over something out of control.. It broke his heart. Once she joined him on the infirmary bed, he put a arm around her gently as she seemed to fall apart. “It’s ok,” he said softly, holding her close and rubbing her arm gently as best he could. “It’s not your fault, and I don’t want you blaming yourself, okay? I’m fine. A little beaten up, but it could have been worse.” His tone was gentle and comforting as he spoke, trying his best to comfort the love of his life. “Have I told you today that I love you?”
Jamie smiled as she sat at the edge of Seb’s hospital, watching him with Monkey who seemed to be really curious about the wires connected to Seb. Her smiles only lasted so long though as he questioned her apology. “Because I should have came with you… I used to always come and… You probably wouldn’t be in this bed if I had just came. I’m sorry Sebby…” She apologized again and bit her lip to try and smolder the impulse to try again. She forbid herself to cry or be upset right now. Forbid it, forbid it, forbid. But, no matter how much she tried telling herself to act strong like him her eyes blurred with warm tears.
Hearing her reasoning behind the apology, Sebastian frowned deeply and shook his head. “No..You can’t always come with me,” he said softly. It wasn’t like they knew it was going to happen. He studied her carefully, sorrow in his eyes as he noticed she was trying not to cry. He knew her well. Seb moved himself and Monkey carefully on the bed, his breath catching in his throat for a moment from the pain it caused before he patted the spot beside him gently. “Come here.” He wasn’t fond of the idea of someone touching him right now..but Jamie wasn’t just someone. She was his wife and someone he loved more than all the stars in the sky.
Jamie smiled a bit more as she caught Seb’s smile. She knew it was much too soon for Monkey to start talking but she could definitely dream. “Though… If he start’s talking we might want him to stop only for him to keep going.” She smiled before pouting. “Then that would mean he’d getting older… We need special baby dust to keep him a baby.” She just wasn’t prepared one bit to even let him hit a 1st birthday. Though, it really was something big and special as she’s been trying to make everything for them to be. Like Halloween and her thanksgiving. She even managed to get a large Christmas tree for them to celebrate and extra blinking lights. She frowned as he didn’t answer her before she continued to work on his arm. When she finished she smiled as she watched the two before looking a bit surprised at his thanks. She breathed out a laugh and smiled warmly. “I’m your wife. I’ll always take care of you…” She frowned a bit and looked down. Why didn’t she come with him? After the incident with her former boss she didn’t want to bring Monkey anywhere near the asylum or the hospital wing but now Seb was hurt… And she felt the need to take blame for it. She knew how lost he could get. He was a lot stronger then people would take him for though and strong willed. Since the day they met she never thought of him as weak or anything less then a man and even now he may be afraid but he was her sailor. Strong and loving with a good heart and soul. “I’m sorry…” Her tone was sad and pained with guilt.
Sebastian smiled a little as Jamie spoke about once Monkey began talking they would want him to stop. He really wondered what the child in his arms sounded like aside from small babbles and peals of joyous laughter, but they would just have to be patient. When she mentioned not wanting him to get older, Seb nodded his head a little in agreement. He wasn’t ready for the baby to grow up and he already was growing so quickly. It seemed like just yesterday he and Jamie found out they were going to be parents and here they were, with a four month old who grew and learned more and more with each passing day.
After his quiet thanks, Seb gave Jamie a small smile at her words but it quickly fell. He looked at her with a worried expression, wondering what she was thinking about, but when she apologized, he furrowed his brows. “W-what….for?” he asked in a small voice, confusion and fear easy to hear in his tone. He didn’t know what she could be apologizing for. It wasn’t as if she was the reason he was in the infirmary. If anything, it was his own for going into that room. He should have known better. Especially in a place like this.
Jamie couldn’t help but smile as she watched the two men she loved most in the whole world. “Today I was sure he was about to say Dada… But it was gas. I swear he was really close though.” She smiled before she asked if she could help him with his arm. She frowned as his heart started to trigger a reaction of the machines. “I’m not going to hurt you, Sebby. I don’t want you to get an infection… Did they give you enough pain medicine. I can give you a little more and change the regiment for you…” She offered before watching him carefully move Monkey. She smiled softly before getting some new equipment to change his bandages. She carefully removed them and started getting some antiseptic to clean him off. “Just a little sting, Only for a second.” She promised softly before she carefully started cleaning off the blood but stopped once she saw the markings. She knew these markings, she knew she knew but it took her a minute for it to clique and a raise of anger filled her heart. A demon dared touch her family… It narrowed down who the culprit could be but best of all, she knew how to get them to her and how to kill them… But, that was when she was dead herself. She forced herself to come back to reality and started smoothing an ointment to help the wounds heal with minimal scaring. “If we get some vitamin E oil it should help with healing as well, that’s how I fixed some of the stretch marks from Monkey.” She gave a small smile before wrapping up his arm again before giving his arm a quick small kiss to make it better.
Listening to her talk about how Monkey was close to saying ‘Dada’, Seb smiled a hint. He knew that it was impossible for a child to speak so young, but it was a nice idea. So many times he had sat playing with the infant or just holding him and he wondered to himself what the child sounded like. It reminded him of when Jamie was pregnant and he told her that he wanted Monkey to come already so he could meet him and see what he looked like, and now it was the same thing but with the child’s voice. Well, one day they would hear him.. Seb’s gaze darted from his bloody bandage to Jamie as he opened his mouth to reply, only to shut it when his words failed him. It wasn’t her she feared, but more the memories linked to the wound that hid beneath that once sterile gauze. When asked about the pain meds, Sebastian didn’t speak up. He wanted to, to tell her that the ones they had given him did almost nothing for the pain, but he couldn’t find his voice. Maybe the demon had taken that too.. Instead, he dropped his gaze down to Monkey again, giving the child a smile.
Seb winced when Jamie began to peel away the bandages and nodded his head as she said it would only hurt for a second. He highly doubted that he could feel it anyway since his arm burned like fire anyway. He let out a small his as she cleaned off the blood, irritating the wound, but watched curiously when she paused to study it. Anyone who had been in this asylum long enough would know what left those markings on him, and he frowned a little, seeing anger flash in her eyes. Their family was nothing but protective over one another and he feared what she was thinking as she stared. She didn’t say anything about it, however, and simply continued what she was doing as she spoke of vitamin E oil. Sebastian nodded his head in reply and turned his attention to Monkey as the infant grew bored of the blanket and chose to attempt to consume his own tiny fist, bringing a small smile to Seb’s face before he felt her kiss his arm. The male looked to Jamie again, staring at her for a moment until he finally uttered a very small and quiet “Thank you..”
Jamie frowned as he began to bite his lip until it bled. “It’s okay, Sebby. It’s just us… You’ll need stitches if you keep on.” She tried to reassure him. She wished she could take away any and all pain from her Sebby. Make this whole thing go away… It brought a pain to her heart that could bring down a building but that was her job. To carry the pain and keep going. She couldn’t be broken when she needed to help carry him, that’s what she vowed to do and that was exactly what she was going to do. And, God help whomever did this to her Sailor if she finds them. She’d surely make them regret the day they decided to try and cross Seb’s path. Jamie allowed him to take their infant son who only smiled when Seb took him, unable to know that anything could be wrong with him. Jamie stood to get some gauze for Seb’s lip and dabbed some warm water on it before she held it out. “Can I?” She asked before she noticed the bandages on his arm seeping blood. “Let me fix that… Please?”
Looking down at Monkey who smiled happily, Sebastian gave him a small soft smile. He was in pain, terrified and exhausted, but wouldn’t show that to the child. He allowed Aiden to take hold one of his fingers before looking up as Jamie spoke with a damp gauze, asking if she could clean the blood from his lip before her eyes were diverted to the bandage on his arm. He could see that some blood had already seeped through the layers of gauze and wrapping, making his heart race a little with fear that was now clearly audible thanks to one of the machines they had chosen to hook him up to. He knew that beneath the bandages were more scars to be and the thought saddened him that he would have reminders of this night on his skin forever. The man stared at his arm for a minute or so before remembering that Jamie had spoken. Though he didn’t want anyone touching him, he adjusted Monkey on his lap, taking a moment to take one of the tubes he was connected to from the small child’s hand and give him the blanket to hold and drool on instead before holding out his arm to her, still remaining quiet.
Jamie frowned as he continued to curl into the blanket but she knew how that felt but he had to know he were safe with her. She gave a soft smile to the man she had the pleasure of calling her partner in crime for eternity and husband. Monkey tried reached out to take the blanket before grunting at Seb. Jamie frowned at the bruising on Seb’s face and could feel a warmth behind her eyes that wanted to become tears but she couldn’t let herself cry. “They’re gone. No one can hurt you now, I won’t let them.” She vowed as well as silently vowed she’d never leave him alone again in this god forsaken hospital before looking down at Monkey who wiggled around. “He’s really missed you. Why don’t you hold our son?” She smiled, carefully holding Monkey out to him who was more then excited to see his father.
Listening to Jamie, Seb wanted to believe her, but he just didn’t feel safe. He already had anxiety about things and this just made it so much worse. He swallowed thickly and bit onto his lip until he tasted blood, trying not to break down. He didn’t want to cry. That would only make him feel weaker than he already did. The man looked at her, his eyes sorrowful then looked at Monkey as he wiggled around, reaching out for him. When she she suggested that he hold Monkey, Sebastian felt the urge to pull the blanket over his head again so that he may hide away, but knew that he couldn’t do that. Instead, he moved, trying to ignore the pain each movement brought so that he could sit up enough to take Monkey from her, holding the child close in his bandaged arms, not noticing that one had already seeped through with blood.
Jamie frowned as she saw Seb trying to hide away, going over to the bed she wanted to reach out and touch him only to be stopped and pulled to the side by the doctor. His voice was a hushed whisper but as he spoke Jamie’s heart began to ache before crumbling into the pit of her stomach where a fire of anger and hate was ignited. “Get out…” She instructed the doctor who looked at her as if she were insane. “Both you and the nurse get out. I need time with my husband.”: She demanded, watching them leave she closed the door behind them before she went to his side. “Sebby?” She spoke softly with only love in her voice. Though, sadness and worry were fully visible in her eyes. She didn’t like when Seb was in pain and she hated the fact that not only someone had hurt him but they dared touch him. Touch the only person who really cared and loved her, who wanted to keep her happy. “I love you more then the moon and stars, you know that?” She asked, getting Monkey from his car seat she sat him on her lap and tried looking into the little bit of opened blanket. “Even more then my roses… Will you come out?” She asked softly, Monkey making a grunting sound as if to agree with her.
Sebastian flinched a little under the blanket as Jamie spoke to the nurses in a stern tone, asking them to leave. On one hand, he was relieved that they wouldn’t be in the room, but still he found himself curling up further and pressing his lips together to stifle a small whimper of pain. His entire body ached and although it wasn’t something new, he still couldn’t get used to the pain and humiliation he felt. When Jamie closed the door and moved over to his bedside again to call out his name softly, Seb only retreated further under the blanket, trying to make himself as small as he felt, but it was useless. He let out a small whimper in reply as she went on, speaking in a tone you would use around a frightened animal. He bit on his swollen bottom lip, cringing at the very idea of peeking out from under his blanket. It almost reminded him of when he was a child, clinging to the false beliefs that it would keep him safe. Even now, a large part of him hoped it was true. He took in a breath, hearing a familiar gurgle and after a long moment of contemplation, he forced himself to peek out to look at Jamie and monkey, fear clear on his bruised face though he knew that he had no reason to fear them.
