Ryan wanted to promise that it would get better soon, but they both knew it would be a lie.
He cradled Connor’s broken body in his arms as the fever raged, stroking his hair and talking him through his fear when the pain became too much. The incoherent whimpering had started on the sixth day. Ryan thought he preferred the screaming. At least that meant there was still some fight in him.
In his increasingly rare lucid moments, Connor begged him to make the pain stop.
Eventually, Ryan promised it would get better soon.
Then he reached for his pistol.
