Will could hear it every night. The soft sobs and muttered words. He wanted to go to her; offer some sort of comfort, but she had built walls around herself, and they were impossible to break. He tried, though. Every morning he made sure to be in the kitchen when she came in for her tea, and he would always ask how she slept.

And she would always lie.

As the weeks turned into months, he started to worry, wondering if she would ever be the woman she was before. Then one night he found her in the study, her face cradled in her hands as her shoulders shook with the grief she felt.

He couldn't leave her there so he crept across the room, much like a scared animal. The creaking floorboards gave him away and when she looked up at him, Will felt his heart break at the haunted look in her eyes. It was enough to push him to sit next to her, and slip an arm around her shoulders.

"I miss her, Will," she sobbed.

Tightening his hold on her, Will brought her closer. "I know you do, Helen," he whispered. "Do you want to talk about it?"

Helen nodded and started to speak. All of her fears, worries and sadness seemed to flow out and Will offered her the support she so desperately needed.

After that night, she never lied to him again.
