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.

Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts with me; I'm glad you thought this captured sadness and love.

I think Hodgins (and Angela) have to be struggling with the Apprentice reveal. :( Let's see how the show deals with that next season...

Your welcome!

I agree, I think Hodgins will really be struggling with the Zack revelation, and I really hope they show some of that next season.

I'm just afraid they'll skip right over any emotional issues with Zack being gone and use the excuse that a lot of time has passed from the ending of this season and the beginning of the next in order to not show much of it.

That is EXACTLY what I'm afraid of, too.
