Title: Sodden and Sorrowful

Summary: Charlie didn't realize helping Don on a case would be so hard
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

He winds up at the video arcade – how he's not sure. But Charlie wipes a sodden curl away from his face and heads to the Tempest game, the only one Larry plays.

There's so much he wants to express, but his genius is not in words. He has so many questions. Why does he feel responsible? Why does he hurt so much for women he doesn't even know? How is he supposed to just go on with his life? How does Don do this every day?

Full of sorrow, he realizes why his brother drinks as much as he does.

Wonderful imagery, and great use of the prompt, as always. *hugs. Every time I read you, I miss this show. ♥

I adore this moment, and I love when you write it. Charlie does definitely seem to be taken by surprise when the case becomes painful.

The idea... how *does* Don do this every day? That's truly the question.
