Despite closing his own eyes to avoid seeing the people on the street, Ethan could feel their eyes on him. He was breathing hard and fast and he could feel sweat dripping down his neck. He didn't want to be here anymore, but he couldn't bring himself to get up and walk away. He was truly paralyzed and that was making it worse. Get up before someone calls the police on you for loitering. Get up before Kai's wife comes out and yells at you. Get up. GET UP. GET UP! His heartbeat still sounded as though it was in his ears and his face was flushed red. He felt pathetic and small. Clark couldn't believe that he hadn't be able to get far away like he wanted. All the progress he was making and all the changes to his medications felt like it didn't matter. Because he always ended up here. Curled up and in need of saving.

You are worthless. Everyone knows it. Marissa knew it. Your Parents know it. Your co-workers know it. Your elementary kid students know it. And now..Kairo knows it.

"Hey..." Ethan opened his eyes and immediately recognized the brown eyes staring back at him belonged to his music therapist. He was mostly confused by his presence. Maybe he had died and this was his heaven. Ethan quickly noticed the area around Kairo and realized he was still on the street. Clark shook his head. "I-I-I.." He couldn't even bring himself to say words since he was breathing so hard. The small attempt to speak had made him light-headed. He just shook his head again. Kairo them took hold of his face and shielded his peripheral vision. All Ethan could see was Kairo. "It's okay...just breathe...I'm here." He took a moment to examine his features, momentarily getting lost in his eyes. His heart rate was still rather fast, but he could no longer hear it in his ears and his breathing had slowed a bit. "I-I-I need to get out of here...t-take me out of here..." Was all he could bring himself to say.
