Sugar watch Cordy’s gauze and handed the girl the backpack. “Close your eyes and reach in and grab something. We will leave it up to chance. Sound like a good idea?” Sugar titled her head and tugged at her hair.
Cordy nodded her head and reached into the bag. She pulled out a game and looked at Sugar. “ummm so this?” She asked a slight smile on her face. She like not being alone. More then she relized.
Sugar took a look at her backpack and gave a little start, like she wasn’t expecting it to be there. “Oh, right! I brought cards, and movies, and music. My three most favorite things ever. Depending what you feel up to, we could like play a game, or we could watch a movie, or we could listen to tunes.”
Cordy smiled but was sad that the other girl wasn’t holding her anymore. “Umm… I don’t care whatever one you want.” She said softly keeping her eyes on the back pack.
Troy could feel her nodding while he held her…so at least that was a good sign that he was doing something right. He really was at a loss as to what to do- so far the two people that he had lost that meant the most to him, came back in the end (granted Santana took longer than Kurt and barely remembered him- but they were working on that).
She looked down and asked softly if Kurt could come to them- she didn’t want to leave and the orderlies scare her. “I’ll talk to him.” Troy said softly, unsure of how Kurt would be with talking to her. More because it was barely a week ago that Kurt had finally seemed to really grasp that his dad wasn’t coming back. “Until then what can I do for you?”
Cordy felt her breathing start to settle down to normal. Her tears for now had dried up. Her heart rate slowing down. But there was this whole. This ache in the middle of her chest that she was unsure of how to deal with. This empitness that was where Greg was supposed to be.
She shrugged her shoulders at him and stayed close. “Don’t leave?”
Sugar petted Cordy’s head. “Oh, Cordy, it is more than okay to be sad. You just lost someone very important to you. You act however you would like. Don’t act at all, just be yourself. Everything is going to be okay. It’s just going to take time. Lots of time I am afraid.” Sugar kept on petting Cordy’s hair.
Cordy nodded her head and stayed in Sugar’s arms. She swallowed again and looked towards the backpack. “What did you bring?” She asked softly her arms still around the other girl. She liked the feel of not being alone.
He was proud of himself when he got a smile from her. He wasn’t sure why, perhaps because he was willing to help or that he had called her by her nickname, it didn’t really matter. What did matter was that he got her the glass of water that she seemed to need. It took a few moments but he was there and back with a cup, pulling her close again once he was settled.
She coughed a few times since her throat was that dry and he rubbed her back gently until she was done for now. She thanked him and snuggled up closer, he face buried in his chest. She said she didn’t know what to do and he was at a loss. “I’m sorry Sunshine I wish I knew what to say or what to do…for now though, I’ll stay here for as long as you need me- and then afterwards, maybe we could go talk to Kurt or Nick. I know they’ve lost parents…maybe we can do what I did with Nick- after Johanna. He wrote her a letter and then he burned it. It was so he could say everything he wanted to say to her that he didn’t get to or needed to say now.”
Cordy stayed in Troy’s arms and nodded her head as he talked. Those all sounded like really good idea’s. Though she didn’t know if parents compared to siblings, they probably did. Someone close. But did they count to what Greg was to her. He was more then her twin and constant friend. He was who she loved.
She swallowed hard and looked at Troy. “C.. Could Kurt come here? I.. I don’t know if I want to leave the room… I.. It’s been a while an.. and the orderlies scare me.” She said softly as she stayed in his safe hold.
Sugar moved over slowly towards Cordy. “Oh Cordy..” Sugar opened her arms not knowing what else to say. Sugar reached over and pet the girls hair, softly. ”Would it be okay if I held you?” she asked. Without really waiting for Cordy to answer, she pulled the blonde in her arms.
Cordy wasn’t expecting to get pulled into a hug by Suger. She barely knew the other girl. But she wouldn’t lie that it didn’t feel awesome and safe. She buried her head into the other girl’s shoulder wrapping her arms around her tightly. “I.. I don’t… don’t know how to act.. or what to say.. Or how not to be sad..” She mumbled into the other girls clothes as tears started up again.
Sugar knocked on the door gently. ”Cordy, I’m coming in.” Sugar peaked inside the door and ventured into the other girls room. She stood, just in the door way. “I brought distractions.” Sugar put down her her book bag and moved to sit down by Cordy. “Tell me what’s wrong? You seem so sad…”
Cordy moved from her bed where she had been since Troy left. She just didn’t have the heart to move from where she was. Though she needed to, for Greg. He would be so mad if she just never moved again.
So when she heard the knock on the door she sat up slowly. She smiled when the other girl entered her room. It was nice to not be alone with her head. She heard the question and swallowed hard. “M.. My twin brother.. He.. he killed himself.”
