"Oh." Martita considered this for a moment, then collecting her toys and setting them in front of her, she began to mutter solemnly.

"Not here and now.  You don't need to pray for him here in his room.  We should leave him alone to go  to sleep, all quiet.  Sleep?"  She repeated the word, looking at Charcot.  He caught her meaning and nodded but did not move from his chair. He must want to stay and watch over his friend. "Come on, Martita. Lets go downstairs and see if there's some soup left for us too."

Post  Paol Kerjean on Tue Oct 29, 2013 11:20 am

There was a shifting and rustling at the foot of the bed as Martita bounced to the floor. Manuela too had risen. Just another dream slipping away. Fear, never far away, closed in again and his eyes sought Charcot. He was still there, still sitting, but Paol could not recall the words in Spanish to beg him to stay.

His eyes slid shut again and he blinked them open. He couldn't fall asleep. If he fell asleep, he would lose them all over again. But his eyes were so heavy and he was so terribly weary.

Post  Dominic Charcot on Tue Oct 29, 2013 2:00 pm

Charcot thought he could see confusion in his eyes.  Or was it pain, or cold, or was he simply tired?  Or maybe he was afraid?  Charcot had understood some of the girls' speech.  They had been talking of death, and prayer.  Manuela had stopped Martita from praying.  Did they think he was going to die then, and they were already praying for his soul?  Perhaps she had stopped the girl because she didn't want to distress Paol with thoughts of dying.  

Charcot had not exactly considered the idea of his friend's death.  He had known that it was a possibility, but not until this moment had he considered what the ramifications would be.  

He wanted to beg Paol not to leave him alone, to plead with him to get well, to explain all the reasons that he needed him.  But for once, he did not speak all the thoughts in his mind.  Instead, he rose and said, "Let me help you lie back.  You'll be more comfortable to sleep."  And gently, carefully as he could, he shifted the pillows and eased his friend down into the blankets.

"No—" No, he couldn't sleep, but he sank helplessly farther down onto the bed nonetheless. It was like drowning, he could see the sunlight on the water just above him, but he couldn't reach it; for all his struggling, his own leaden heaviness just pulled him farther and farther down.

He was scared to death, of the fires, of watching his friends die, of the Portuguese woman in the hilltop village and the little boy on St-Domingue, all the things which came crawling out of the dark, of what he would find when he woke again. Please don't make me go back to sleep. But the words grew confused and broke apart before they reached his lips. He grasped at Charcot's hand. "Please."

Charcot's eyes were filling with tears. He was not capable of dealing with this much emotion, not yet. Everything was too fragile. But he wrapped both of his hands around Paol's. "It's all right. Everything's going to be fine. I promise. Everything's going to be fine. I promise, I promise." He took a deep unsteady breath.

For a few moments Paol clung tightly to his hand as he fought against sleep, but each time his eyes slipped shut it became harder and harder to open them again until they did not open at all. He kept his hold on Charcot's hand, even in sleep, but his grip gradually grew slack.

Charcot slipped out of his chair and sat on the floor beside the bed, still holding onto Paol's hand.  He was crying, but he didn't care.  It was too important, too desperate a thing to care about crying.  "Please don't leave me, Paol," he begged quietly.  Tears burned his eyes like hot ashes and he raised one hand to rub at them.  It made his head ache, crying like this.  "You're my brother forever, remember? I'm sorry, Paol, I wouldn't ask you anything more, only please don't die and leave me here alone!"  He pressed his face against the edge of the bed and sobbed.

Maria slipped up the stairs, quiet as a cat, balancing a bowl of soup in one hand. Martita -- blessedly -- was too engrossed with her food to try to follow her. The scene in the room was, at first glance, not so very different from when she had first found Manuela there, only the blind -- why did she insist on thinking of him as that? -- the young one was sitting on the floor, rather than the chair.

As she drew closer, however, she realized he was crying and she was surprised at the sudden pang of pity that she felt for him. But he looked terribly young just then, and so very lost.

"Señor?" she ventured gently.

So great was Charcot's weeping that he did not even notice when the girl entered. It was not until she spoke, quite near, that he realized there was someone else in the room with him. He started violently and looked up, automatically cringing away in fear.

Maria Dolores was unprepared for his reaction and started herself, suppressing a wince as some of the hot broth splashed over her hand. Then, with a timid apology, she held the bowl out to him.

He watched in confusion, looking at the bowl and then at the girl's face.  She wanted him to take it, but he didnt know why.  "He's sleeping," he mumbled, wiping his hand across his face awkwardly, suddenly self-conscious and ashamed.  He was crushed by shame and despair, so much that he started crying again and had to hide his face in his drawn up knees.

Maria regarded him for a moment, unsure what to do, a small, troubled frown between her brows. But she was doing no good just standing there, so after another moment's hesitation, she set the bowl down close beside him. "Some soup. For when you are hungry," she told him softly, and with a final, uncertain glance at the two of them, started to withdraw.

He heard her speaking and then moving away, and he looked up.  She had left the bowl of soup on the floor.  He looked at it for a moment, finding a sort of comfort in the utter familiarity and simplicity of a bowl of soup.  The bowl even had a little chip at the edge.  Then he looked up at her hand and nodded, briefly, but he kept his eyes averted.  He was too ashamed to meet her gaze, and too unsure of his composure to venture further speech.
