Kin stood beneath the bridge on the West Side of town. He watched at the sun rised on top of the water as he leaned back against the concrete wall that ran beneath the bridge, car’s roared overhead. He shivered as the cool cement touched his bare back, dressed in sweatpants, and in his hand he held a t-shirt as he stood barefoot in the sand.

It had been over three hours since he’d left the hospital. He’d been so ready to leave, get out, escape. Now, he didn’t know what he wanted. He stood there, waiting, but he wasn’t sure what he was waiting for.

Rhienne left the hospital sullenly, her mind beginning to feet for Kin. How had he managed to get away? Was he doing ok now that he was out of medical care? Had he left to do something — drastic? To the people who had tortured him? Or worse… to himself. She walked into the station heavily as the sun rose, her mind full of everything except her tasks for the day ahead.

Kin walked with her in silence. He slipped into the back of the truck and it wasn’t long before they were on their way back to the station.

Rhienne leaned against the truck side, the gentle rumble rocking her. She looked across the bench at the other officers, some of which had been captured while others had been part of the backup rescue team. She was glad that the station was able to pull together and that everyone one of their fellow officers had escape almost unscathed.

As the truck fell into a gentle groove, she allowed herself to mod off, her mind drifting to her lieutenant and Akio, Lan and Kehn… And Kin, at her side, safe when she had been so afraid she would be too late.

Kin nodded quietly, he was honestly just tired and the park really set the mood for a perfect nap.

Rhienne smiled when he didn’t respond, and glanced up to see his eyes drooping. The fountains several yards away made for a soothing ambiance, the wind whistling lightly in the trees and making it very temperate. She probably would have fallen asleep at his side then and there, but she didn’t want to fall asleep in the public park at night.

"Come on Kin… We can sleep at home. I know we are both tired…” Rhienne patted his chest before standing.

"Yeah, but still," he slowly stood, groaning. Kin stood completely before half hunching over in pain. "Let’s catch a truck back to the station."

She bent down to help him, lifting his arm over her shoulders. “Of course… Take it slow, ok?” She began walking slowly toward a truck, leading him toward the back so that they could sit and wait to go back to the station.

Kin remained. Of course…. He had to. He was being kept here too… Just like back at the compound. He knew he’d be alone for the rest of the night. This ate at him. He looked at the window then back to his bandaged wrists. The only thing different was here… He wasn’t restrained. Here he could leave… He was going to wait until the nurse came back to check his vitals. When she left. That’s when he would leave…

Rhienne returned the next morning, early before her shift. She yawned all the way up to the front desk, and checked in to visit Kin. The receptionist glanced down at her records and frowned. “I’m sorry, but you can not see him.” She immediately woke up, her eyebrows furring. “What do you mean!? I promise I would see him this morning, i can’t not go… please!”

     She shook her head. “I am sorry, Miss. Rhys. I can not let you see him because he is not here. He left our care — escaped… in the middle of the night.” Rhienne pressed her hand to her mouth, shocked.

i-am-the-godson:

"I’m pretty full" he said and slipped his arm around her and set back on the bench to be more comfortable.

Nodding, she settled against his arm, looking out at two children running around their father and mother. She smiled, breathing deeply. “It’s really nice out here… looks like all the warm weather finally broke.”

Kin closed his eyes. “Of course you do-….” He muttered. “Like I said… Do what you want.”

Tears flooded her eyes, and she blinked hard before leaving the hospital room.

The healer stopped the bleeding and began to patch him up. Kin allowed the man to wrap him with gauze and clean off his head where it had been shaved and cut. Once finished the healer ran off to help others and Kin sat there in silence.

Rhienne glanced down at him and smiled softly. “Come on… It looks like we have done all we can do; at least all this planning wasn’t a complete wast of time, and we were able to get a few triads…”

Kin let out a breath as he watched the scene in front of him… He narrowed his eyes. A healer ran up to Kin and urged him to sit down, he looked to Rhys as if to say. "You didn’t have to get one after all…" The healer made him strip of his bloodied shirt, and so he did.

She stayed close as the healer tended to him, watching as the officers finished freeing the others. Several triads had been arrested, but none of the bosses…and not the boy who had double crossed him.

     Rhienne crossed her arms, suddenly feeling very tired.

He looked to her as she stood… A pained expression on his face… He knew after she left he’d be alone, but he realized it would always be this way. They should’ve killed him before he was found.

"Do what you want…" He said quietly, his voice broke. "I don’t care."

Rhienne hesitated, standing in the middle of the room. “I want you to get better…please don’t say that… You may not care, but I do,” she whispered.
