Kiyan was gone mentally. He never noticied Blue come in the door, but Thyme did. The little girl smiled and jumped up, running over to the couch. "Blue!"
Throwing her little arms around Blue's neck, she didn't have any idea of what was really going on. She knew her father was being distant but her young mind didn't understand. Looking over, Kiyan sniffled and nodded his head, broken out of his trance by Thyme. He allowed Blue to wipe the tears that threatened to fall then picked up Thyme and kissed the girl's forehead. "Me and Blue have to talk so go to your room."
He set Thyme down and watched as she went to her bedroom. Once she was gone, Kiyan took a deep breath. "How am I gonna tell her Blue? She just gained both of her parents and now her mother is dead."
Thyme had a bad hand so far in life. Kiyan was more devastated for his daughter than he was for himself.
