Mattex - “I lost the baby.”
Alex is sitting alone in hair and makeup waiting for the women to get back from their breaks; while she waits, she shoots off a quick text to a friend, smiling at her own little joke as she presses send. When she locks her phone and sets it on the counter, Matt tentatively opens the door to hair and makeup. Alex turns her head to the door and smiles warmly at him in greeting when she sees him.
He pushes his head inside and looks around, as though scanning the room for eavesdroppers. It’s then that Alex notices how harried he looks – his eyes are wide, his hair is mussed, and when he steps fully into the room after finding it empty save for Alex, his clothes are rumpled. He steps closer to her, closing the door gently behind him and as he gets closer, Alex can clearly see the panic in his eyes.
“Kingston,” He whispers, his eyes somehow even wider, “I lost the baby.”
