Hemorrhage In My Hands

Jack slides from beneath Angela’s arm, escaping his dark bedroom.

In the kitchen he considers taking two beers up to Zack’s apartment.  Remembering, he pulls onions from the pantry instead.

Papery skin gives way; Jack makes the first cut.  

As the Syn-propanethial-S-oxide hits his eyes, tears well.  

“What’re you doing?” 

Her sleep-slurred voice snares his attention, but the blade keeps moving.  “Making onion quiche.”  He barely falters when the knife kisses flesh.

“It’s 3:00 in the morning.”  Warm fingers clasp his wrist.  “Jack, stop.  You’re bleeding.”

Jack stares at their hands.  “I never taught him to drive.”

Angela's fingers tighten.

Oh Hodgins. This fic makes me ache for him. I'm really curious to see how, or really if, the writers deal with Zack's absence from Hodgin's life. I feel like it was touched on a bit in The Titan on the Tracks with the Hodgins/Brennan "Zack is irreplaceable" conversation. And now I'm waaaaay off track. :)

Anyways, lovely drabble darling. Can't wait to read some of the other prompts.

And now I'm waaaaay off track.

Not at all! Your comments were totally relevant. I join you in being curious about how the writers will deal with the hole that Zack's absence will leave in Hodgins' life.

Thank you very much for reading and commenting; I appreciate hearing what you thought.
