My original plan was to have part of their conversation from the next scene, but I can't find any dialogue that's only 8 sentences that even comes close to standing on it's own. So, Catie is worried about Eli, because she thinks he may be suicidal. They talked and he told her that he is going to England to deal with Anastasia, his Sire - and they both know that this is going to be a fight to the death. So, now she's even more worried about him. This snippet comes right after he sends her a text telling her that the plane is about to take off and he'll contact her as soon as he's home, again.
She stared at the phone for a minute before curling back into a ball. After the first few bloody tears she stopped trying to wipe them away. She knew that if anyone saw her she would look like something out of a horror movie, but she didn't care. Esther was Eli's Sabrina. He said that he would be back, but would he really? So, for the second time in her life, there was nothing she could do but wait. And pray that this time the one she was waiting for would come home alive.
Hmm... I don't know if Sabrina was mentioned in any of my other snippets. But poor Catie is a MESS. Though that ends up being a good thing in the end. ;) Next week we'll see part of what happens in England.

And finally, some music from my playlist. Not sure why this song is paired with this scene - but my muse liked it, and I don't argue with her about the things that inspire her.
