3. Nobody said it was easy
“Nobody said it was easy
Its such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start"
I put my coat back on, and waited for her to speak. All of this time I had almost underestimated Molly Hooper but she understood exactly what I needed. I had changed in that short time we were in that room and so had she. She was more confident, as if she had let go of her fear.
Our eyes met and we looked at each other for what felt like minutes. My eyes pricked with the sting of tears. Again my body showing emotion I had kept inside for so long. No one else would ever understand me like her and I had to let her go. I didn’t know for how long but I knew she had to believe it would be forever. I could not bear to touch her again, knowing this would not help either of us deal with the coming hours.
She turned to locate her hair tie and I slipped out of the door. I walked as fast as I could down the corridor. I heard her come out of the door behind me but I was too far gone. I thought I heard her whisper goodbye and I closed my eyes, wishing the guilt and pain out of my mind. In this short space of time I had experienced all of the range of emotions attached with feeling for another person: confusion, panic, lust, ecstasy, love….I could not think of her now, I could only think of Moriarty.
