Andrew stepped back. Watching her closely as he slowly moved away from her. Looking at her was like looking at a totally different person. She almost looked wild and animalistic.
She continued to growl at him. He didnt know what to do. He didnt want to leave her out there but he couldnt go near her. Not like this. He quickly went back inside closing the door behind him. Locking the door and leaning against it he took a deep breath. The only thing he could think to do was to call Ryan. But he didnt want to involve him again. Things were beginning to spin out of control. The less people involved the better it would be for everyone. He paced back and fortth across the room. Weighing his options. His thoughts were interruped when he heard a loud pounding on the door. Walking to the door he asked who it was, but no answer came. He leaned against the door and asked again.
"Who is it?"
His heart leaped in his chest. The quivering voice on the other side was Tracy's. He didnt know if he should let her in or not. Just a few minutes ago she was viscously growling at him.
"Please let me in!"
His heart was pounding in his chest. As scared as he was he was more in love than scared and that feeling ruled over everything. He slowly opened the door and watched her as she stumbled in and fell to the floor. On reflex he ran to her and wrapped his arms around her. Thankfully she didnt resist him. She clung close to him, her nails digging in his back, her tears soaking his shirt.
"I dont know if I can do this", she said to him.
"You dont have to if you dont want to", he said.
"I dont know what I want anymore."
"How about you just rest for now. We can figure things out later".
Andrew went and got a thick blanket from the closet and covered her with it. She quickly curled up into. Her shivering seeming to lessen. He left her for a few minutes to make her a warm bath. When he was finished he picked her up and carried her into the bathroom. Helping her out of her clothes and into the water. He left her to soak in the water while he found a pair of her favorite pajamas. A few minutes later he came back to check on her. He helped her lather her body with soap, and helped her rinse and dry off afterwards. He watched as she got dressed in her pjs and helped her into bed. He layed beside her for hours and watched her sleep. Altho he tried his eyes just wouldnt close. He couldn't stop thinking about what had happened earlier. Wondering, when she woke up...what would would happen next.
