Two hours. It had been two hours since they took Theodore inside the OR, and every minute had passed excruciatingly slow. With every tick of the clock my heart swelled with desperation. With every nurse and doctor that emerged from the OR fueled my anxiety. I wanted nothing at this point to barge into the OR and watch the doctors working there like a hawk. But I was not a doctor, I was only a personal assistant.

"Hailey dear, " Mrs. Benson's frantic voice broke through the fog of distress. I looked up to see the Bensons running over to me. I stood up and Mrs. Benson immediately enveloped me in a hug. I tried to stop the tears from flowing from my eyes but being hugged by Mrs. Benson made me feel as if my own mother was hugging me, and that made it impossible for my tears to stay confined.

"I'm so sorry, Mrs. Benson, Theodore got shot because of me, he—he was in danger and I—and I couldn't let Ian hurt him, he got shot because of me, " I sobbed while holding on to Mrs. Benson, who continued to rub my back, soothing me.

"Ssh, it's not your fault, dear, what happened, happened, no need to blame yourself about it, " she said softly, trying to make me feel better, but I knew she was worried about her son.

"I do blame myself, Theodore told me had everything under control and he told me not to interfere but I still did it, I interfered and now Theodore is in there fighting for his life, " I muttered, pulling away from Mrs. Benson, wiping my tears with the back of my hand.

"You don't have anything to worry about, dearest, my son will be fine, he's a Benson after all, and it's not easy to get rid of us, " Mr. Benson spoke up. I looked at him to see him smiling softly, but I could see the worry in his eyes. I felt guilt stab my heart at seeing Theodore's family here. They didn't deserve this. Nobody deserved this. If anyone deserved to get shot it was me, not my husband.

"I'm so sorry, Mr. Benson, if I hadn't been so stupid Theodore would've been alright, " I apologized, feeling terrible about my actions.

"Nonsense, I'm sure Theodore would prefer to get shot a hundred times if it meant he could save you from harm, " Mr. Benson replied, making my stomach twist at the prospect of seeing Theodore get shot a hundred times.

"How long has it been since Theodore has been in the OR?" Mrs. Benson enquired.

"Two hours and eleven minutes, you should sit down, I don't how long Theodore's surgery will take, " I responded.

"Where did he get shot?" Mr. Benson asked, once Mrs. Benson sat down.

"On the shoulder, Dad, " I answered, tears blurring my vision once again.

Mr. Benson nodded and sat down next to his wife, wrapping an arm around her. The little gesture made me want to bang my head against the wall at the utter anguish my heart was suffering from. What I wouldn't give to have Theodore wrap his arm around my shoulders, protecting me; loving me.

"Mom, Dad, why don't I go and get something for you guys to eat and drink?" Harry suggested.

Mr. Benson nodded. "Yeah, go and get something to eat and drink for your mother, she didn't even eat breakfast."

"Alright, Hailey, would you like to accompany me?" Harry made it sound like a question but I could tell that he wanted to talk to me alone; so I nodded and walked away with Harry, even though my heart was begging me to go back and stand directly outside the doors of the OR, as close to Theodore as possible.

We walked out of the hospital and Harry led me all the way to his car. He told me to get inside as he did the same. Then drove away from the hospital. I had no idea what was going through his mind as he had barely said anything since the moment he came to the hospital.

Throughout the ride, Harry kept silent. Not saying a word as he expertly drove us to a nearby cafe and parked the car. After instructing me to get out, Harry entered the cafe with me in tow. Leading me to a corner booth he made me sit while he went to order something.

My mind instantly went to Theodore. I wondered how he was doing? Whether the doctors were taking care of him? When would he be out of surgery? How would he feel once he woke up? W

t the phone in the pocket of his jeans and stood up.

"What's wrong? Is Theodore okay?" I asked, dread sitting in my tummy like a boulder.

"Theo is more than okay, he's finally out of surgery and you can relax because he is alright. The doctors have taken him to his room and we shall go and see him, " he told me with a small smile, relief evident on his face.

All the tension and strength left my body when I heard Harry tell me that Theodore was alright. My body shook as silent sobs wracked my body. My heart, all of a sudden felt so light, I was afraid it would fly out of my chest. I didn't stand up because I didn't trust my legs to support me, as relief flooded my soul.

I felt strong arms pulling me out of the chair. Harry enveloped me in his arms as I cried in relief. He rubbed my back in much the same way his mother did, soothing me. This was the moment when I felt that now I had a brother who I could share my problems and worries with, and who would fight for me.

"Ssh, Theo wouldn't want to see you cry, so get yourself together, because Theo had just gotten out of surgery and I know he would be upset if he sees that you've been crying, so stop crying...for Theo, " Harry told me to which I nodded eagerly and hastily wiped the tears from my eyes.

"Let's go, I want to see Theodore." Harry only nodded at my words and together we left the cafe and drove back to the hospital.


Upon arriving at the hospital, Harry quickly asked the lady at the reception for Theodore's room number, and I all but sprinted towards Theodore's room. I didn't want my husband to wait for me.

When Harry and I stood just outside Theodore's room, I raised my fist and knocked slightly, even though my heart was telling me to forget my manners and barge inside like I owned the place.

"Come in, " Mr. Benson's voice came through. Harry pushed the door open and we both entered Theodore's room.

The moment my eyes locked with Theodore's steel gray ones, new tears threatened to spill, but I forced myself to remain calm. A soft smile crept over Theodore's lips as he saw me.

"Finally, my super girl has arrvied, " Theodore said happily, stretching his uninjured arm, "Come here, " he ordered softly.

I didn't need to be told twice. I ran over to Theodore and wrapped my arms around his waist and buried my head in his chest. When his arm wrapped around me, I felt at peace.

I was home.
