But now an angry and bitter man, happiness still eluded him. Until Sybbie, George and Marigold taught him the world wasn't dim and dark. It was filled with laughter and wonder and colour. Like rainbows.

    Summary

    "Do you think your little stunt fixed everything? They still hate you. Else would they have asked you to think of what "brought you so low" right after you recovered? Will Carson let you stay on as long as you think he will? He still expects you to leave with another job and smiles.

    He has to wipe away a surreptitious tear. He knows that the voice in his head is being quite right. His colleagues may pity him now, but loving him, respecting him is quite out of the question. And true, he is not expected to stay on here. The air swirls with a miasma of hopelessness, and his wrists begin to sting fiercely, in tandem."

    Thomas reflects on his suicide attempt, and what it means to kill yourself slowly. CW: Suicide Attempt
