Sebastian slowly pours himself a cup of coffee while trying his best not to spill the steaming liquid, as his tremors cause everything to shake. Once he grasps the mug with his lady hand, while the right grips his wrist, he turns around to see a small round table with two chairs. One chair is occupied by a young lady with burgundy red hair, who appears to be struggling with her own mug, while the other chair is empty.
Sebastian looks at the tremors, the wary features on her face, and that she is nearby the therapist office, coming to the conclusion she is here for the same reasons he is. For she shows the same signs he does. Looking at his reflection in a mirror he sees his usually bright green eyes are dull, with large bags developing, reminding him of a panda bear. His usually combed and controlled blond hair is disheveled and sticking in all directions. And his lightly tan skin is a shade more pale.
‘’This happens every year’’ Sebastian thinks to himself, ‘’whenever the anniversary comes up, the nightmares begin.’’ Closing his eyes and taking a deep bright, he opens his eyes and walks toward her with the best smile he can force, which shows fatigue more than actual positivity. If there is one thing he has learnt, dwelling upon the past is even worse than facing those dark memories. And both of them need a distraction right now.
“H-hello.” He says weakly when he is standing next to the lady, and looks at her mug rather than her eyes. “Is it alright if I sit here?”
