Chapter 26

Just as I sit the glass of water and the bottle of aspirin on the nightstand Vic starts stirring. I panic a little trying to decide whether I leave or stay but Vic makes that decision for me.

"Kellin?" he whimpers.

He turns to me and looks a little confused. I've never seen him so run down in my life.

I sit on the edge of the and look down at my hands.

"How are you feeling?" I ask him softly, looking back at him worried.

He looks a little broken and shrugs.

"Like shit." he mutters. "I ruined Papa's wake, didn't I?"

I smile sadly and nod. "Just a little."

He groans and rubs his head, then I remember the aspirin. I pick up the bottle and empty two into my hand. Vic sits up then takes the water and the aspirin, thanking me quietly.

"Does Mama hate me?" he asks, sitting the water aside.

"No, she's just worried." I murmur. "Everyone's worried about you. You put on one hell of a show last night."

"I humiliated myself. And I humiliated you. I'm sorry." he apologizes.

"Don't stress about it, babe." I sigh. "Get some rest."

I stand up and go to leave but Vic clings on to my wrist.

"Don't go. Please don't go." he pleads.

I'm confused but I sit back down. I look to Vic waiting for him to say something but he just stays silent as tears swim in his eyes.

"What is it?" I ask.

He drops my wrist then slides his hand in mine, linking our fingers together.

"I want you back." he croaks.

His words make a lump rise in my throat.

"Losing Papa made me realize that I don't want to lose you too. These past few weeks, I've been a shitty person and I know I've said and done some unforgivable things and wish I could take it all back. I was hurting and I took it out on you and I pushed you away when we should have been supporting each other. I know I've done a lot of wrong but I will do anything to make it right. I'll go to marriage counseling, I'll give you space if that's what you need, I'll break up the band. I don't care. Just anything to have you back. I love you and I need you. I'm sorry I was too stubborn to realize that sooner." He cries.

I'm in a state of both awe and shock when he's finished.

I don't hesitate in pushing my lips to his. His tears soak my cheeks as our desperate lips move together. We pull apart only for air but then immediately kiss again.

I feel like a teenager. My stomach is filled with butterflies and there's so much angst in the air.

We're silent for a while after we pull away. I spend time grouping together my thoughts before I speak.

"You don't have to do anything, babe. I love you and I'd be happy to take you back." I say gently.

He sniffs and gives me a confused look.

"Really?" he sniffs.

"Yeah, I don't want to lose you either." I admit, squeezing his hand.

He chokes out a laugh and throws his arms around me.

"I've missed you so much." he sniffs.

"I've missed you too." I grin, hugging him tightly, just relieved to have my husband back.
