I need help [RP for Lee] (spoilers for tonight's ER)
standing in the elevator
After a strangely jarring conversation with the new hospital chaplain, Abby finds herself taking the elevator upstairs, to the surgical department. Making her way to her husband's office, she waffles outside the door, pacing, stalling.

It's not until she sees one of the surgical nurses casting a curious look in her direction that she knocks softly on the door, then pushes it open. She takes a deep breath, running her fingers through her hair, and lets the door close behind her as she steps into Lee's office.

She begins to speak but has to clear her throat before she tries again.
Hey...how's the leg feeling? She approaches her husband slowly, gesturing to his injured leg.

She shifts onto her side as well, fingers tracing random patterns across his back. Thank you...

He arches his back slightly in response to her touch, ticklish at first, then relaxes again. Mmm...thank you, beautiful.

She stills her fingers when he tenses, then relaxes against him. Love you.

He rests his head against hers. I love you too.

She turns her head to kiss him softly.

He wraps his arms around her more tightly. He's not going to want to let her go even though he has no choice.

She returns his embrace, wanting nothing more than to stay here in his arms, though she knows they need to get up soon.

How do you do that? He murmurs softly, asking hte open ended question.

Her brow furrowed, she looks up at him. Do what?

He brushes her hair away from her face as he looks at her. Keep it feeling so good.

She shakes her head. That's us, together.

He nods as he thinks about it. Always has been, hasn't it? Even the first time.

She nods as she thinks about their first night together. You've always been the best I've had.

I find that hard to believe. And back then, he certainly wouldn't have believed it, he had counted himself lucky just to be with her. But I know I've always loved you, always wanted to make you happy.

Well, it's true. She insists, then nods again. I know.

He smiles at her a bit sadly, knowing they can't stay like this. Should probably take a shower...

She lets out a small sigh, turning her head away, resenting the end to their relative calm even though she knows he's right. Yeah...I know.

He kisses the side of her neck when she turns away, murmurs against her ear. I was talking about me too...

She turns her head back towards him when he kisses her, nodding. I'm going to miss you...

He brings his hand up to cup the side of her neck, give her a gentle squeeze. I'm going to miss you too. I wish there was something else, another means to help you...but I trust you to know what you need.

She slips her arm back around his middle. I do need this...I wish I didn't, but I do.

He uses his thumb to caress the side of her neck. I know, Abigail. I do know. I don't like how much time we've spent apart lately but I guess this can't be avoided.

I'm sorry. She can't help repeating it again; she knows she won't be able to say it enough, especially to him.

He shakes his head. Stop apologizing, please. I'm happy you want to do this, get sober.

She swallows. I've been a bad wife, a bad mother.
