Esther nodded once, and turned to go back to Caleb's room.

Riley's eyes fluttered shut and she kissed him back, but then she slowly pulled away. "I'm not English, either. It's never been a problem."

Caleb had managed himself to up the dosage of morphine, and his arm draped down at the side of his bed.
Danny quickly swiftly went by his side and held his hand, and swept his hair back from his eyes. "We better keep an eye on him all the time..." He quickly changed the morphine to saline and covered his mouth and shook his head.



"Baby you know that's not true, your parents are English." Jimmy looked at him smugly, and again pulled her against him.

Esther looked at him expressionless, and then nodded to Danny.

"I wasn't raised here, though," Riley pouted at him.

Danny went over to her and held her hands, he looked at her as if he was talking to the patient's loved one, when they were needing that emotional support. "Esther, I need you to understand one thing he's not going to be the same Caleb you knew before. Can you be strong for me?"


"You have a title, and you have an entitlement to the estate, you are English no matter how you deny it." Jimmy replied as he kissed her again deeply, as he towered over her.

Esther looked at him with furrowed brows. "I..um, yes," she told him and looked past him at Caleb, her heart breaking.

Riley pulled away again and glared up at him. "Oh hush, I'm American," she smirked

Danny patted her hands lightly and then looked back his brother in dismay, the man that once held the light of the family was gone and replaced my troubled darkness. He quickly wheeled his wheelchair to his beside and slowly but surely placed him onto it and covered his legs, he winced at the sight of his amputation, still bandaged yet you could see the stains of blood blotting through. "Are you ready?" His voice barely a whisper.

"Why deny your heritage are you ashamed?" Jimmy asked his nose against hers.

Esther could only look at Caleb, but her eyes snapped up to Danny when he spoke and she nodded. "Yes," she said softly.

"Not ashamed, but I'm not going to pretend I didn't come from where I came from," she murmured.

Danny lightly tapped his face, and Caleb's body pulled slightly as if he was woken from a dream. With a smile he swayed as he saw Danny. "Baby bro, what're you doing here?" He asked In a trance like state.
"Caleb, we're taking you home. Esther and I have come to take you home." Danny looked over to Esther and then to him once more. Caleb peered over with a small smile and nodded.
Danny then slowly started to wheel him out of his makeshift ward and nodded to Esther. "The amount he's took, he'll be wanting more soon and he'll be back in his original state. Just pray that the rain's subsided." Slowly he started into a quick pace to the car.

"Alright alright Mrs. Carter, hush up. I want to kiss you now..." Jimmy quipped as he pecked her lips once more.

Esther adjusted her coat around herself and followed Danny to the car, opening the door up to help Caleb get in.

Riley laughed softly. "Call me that again," she said as she wound her arms around him.

Danny with a struggle clicked his seatbelt in and closed the door behind him. "Let's get going before it get worse." He sighed, the grey clouds formed gloomily above them.

"I won't ask you again... Mrs. Carter." Jimmy had buried his head into the nook of her neck.

Esther nodded and slid into the car's passenger side, then looked back over the seat at Caleb.

Riley grinned and pulled away from him. "No, Mr. Carter? Won't you?"

Caleb had rested his head onto the window and found himself sleeping again.
Danny kept looking at Esther to read her emotions somehow, yet he couldn't find the words to console her. To say it would be okay would be too generic, too unsympathetic. He sighed and gripped the wheel tighter as he drove off in a rush.

"I don't think I need permission to kiss my own future wife." He whispered onto her lips with a grin.

Esther could feel Danny's eyes on her, but she couldn't bring herself to look at him. She felt a bit numb, and sge wasn't sure if that was good or bad.

Riley hummed noncommittally against his lips and closed her eyes.

Danny quickly sped through the roads and quickly and soon enough they were home, he looked back and saw that Caleb was still out of it.
"How are you feeling? Truly." He asked switching off the engine.

"Trust me when I say... I will marry you soon." Jimmy replied deeply kissing her once more.

"I don't know," Esther said and stared down at her hands in her lap.

Riley kissed him back, carding her fingers through his hair. "How soon?" she whispered as she pulled away.
