Description: - Why is Tosh so quiet? Can Gwen figure it out? One late night Gwen stays late… Tosh hasn’t been around but Gwen follows her ears and finds her soon enough… will things be healed?
Gwen sat alone at her desk for a while. She sighed and flicked her hair out of her face, pulling her fringe out of her eyes as she looked around, having heard something… or someone… She remained still and waited… There is was again… She stood and followed the sound…
Toshiko lay alone, curled up on the tiny desk, shivering and crying silently, she hadn’t realised that Gwen heard her hit her head on the desk earlier… She lay still, not looking up when Gwen moved towards her…
“Toshiko…” Gwen’s voice was soft, questioning. “What happened?” She crouched to be level with Tosh, gently resting a hand on her shoulder.
“Nothing…” Tosh lied, pulling away and standing, fully intending to walk away. Gwen grabbed her wrist, gently but firmly, causing Tosh to look at her.
“Don’t lie to me Tosh… tell me…”
“No-one would understand…”
“There’s me… try me Tosh…”
“I… I was dumped… by my girlfriend…” Tosh looked down, seeming to fear tears.
Gwen moved silently, hugging Toshiko close, stroking her back and hair comfortingly. “I’m sorry…”
“Just… just hold me…” Tosh murmured, seeming to finally understand why Gwen was watching her so closely all the time.
Gwen smiled, kissing Tosh’s forehead softly. “That I can do…”
-The End –
