AN. Takes place towards the end of episode 2.
Abby was sitting at Stephen’s bedside. She hated feeling so useless, helpless. They said the anti-venom was working, but the convulsions were still happening with frightening regularity, and there was nothing she could do other than hold his hand and keep talking him through it, even though she had no idea if he could hear her voice.
This really wasn’t normal for Abby. She was sensible, she didn’t have silly crushes. Added to the fact that she barely knew the man, she knew this was crazy.
But she was also utterly certain that she wasn’t leaving his bedside until he woke up.
