Your eyes had frozen over like the surface of a winter puddle, robbing him of their usual warmth.
He wanted to reach in and tell you it’s not hopeless, but why should you believe him?
When a migraine struck, you seemed to be its prisoner, quite helpless in your cage of pain. You were blinded by flashing colorful spots and all you craved was darkness; quiet and stillness to soothe your pain.
Often nausea would overwhelm you and you would vomit; Charles always in your wake to hold your hair back. The pain would throb so violently around your skull that you wondered why it didn’t just crack open.
Today was one of those days and when Charles came home from work he found you curled on the bedroom floor under a duvet. He moved to fetch your medication and helped you take it, whispering a million sweet nothings in your hair in an attempt to make it all better.
With a sigh, he curled up right next to you on the varnished wood and waited until you were strong enough to move your legs and make it to the bed.
His hands cupped your cheeks in a final attempt to be inside your head and God knows he cursed his powers right then for not being enough for he would gladly take the pain upon himself if it meant never seeing you like this again.
Mutations are a gift, not a curse.
He said it time after time, repeating it like a prayer but at this moment, with tears falling from your eyes and the never-ending battle taking place inside your mind, it hardly made any sense.
So he held you. It seemed that was all he could do.
Hold you and hope that your pain would be gone with the yellow shining sun that was only now starting to show from your bedroom window.
