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 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.
