but like consider charles pacing up and down in the hospital waiting with amy to see if gina’s okay and the whole time he’s just blaming himself- what if he hadn’t sent that text? why couldn’t he just have waited until gina had crossed the road? why didn’t he stop gina from crossing the road in the first place?
amy’s telling him that it’s not his fault- that this was all just an accident and that gina’s going to be just fine, and that in no time she’ll be up and about bragging about how she survived getting run over by a bus but charles isn’t having any of it. gina and he are step-siblings and he’s never hidden the fact that he saw her as an actual sister. yet as her brother he failed to protect her. gina protected him so many times yet here he was, unable to return the favor.
but then they hear unsteady yet quick footsteps run up to them. it’s rosa, who hung up the moment she got the news. it’s obvious that she’s been crying. it’s obvious that she still is.
“where is she?” rosa yells desperately, and when amy explains that they still don’t know about her condition rosa stomps angrily to the nearest wall and punches a hole through it. she takes a while to notice charles and amy’s bewildered faces before muttering “i’ll pay for that.”
rosa walks away after that and locks herself in the nearest empty toilet. they hear a muffled scream of anguish.
amy turns to charles and looks incredibly concerned and meanwhile charles can only offer her a confused shrug; but he knows exactly what’s going on.
someone’s in love with his sister. and very deeply so.
