He holds her close, her back against his chest. He wraps his arms tightly about her sobbing body. Words fail. He can only be here, letting her know she's not alone by not letting her go.

She rocks in his arms, her body racked by tears whose fury she feels tearing her chest in two. Johanna was all she'd had left of her mother; the older woman had shared memories of her, had always simply been there when she was needed. And now she was gone, flung through the clock … what terror had she known in those seconds before …

The tears renew in fury, clogging her throat, wetting her cheeks.

He feels when the sobs course through her anew, tearing apart the woman in his arms. He simply holds her close. It is all he can do; words have no place in this moment. He just knows what he has to do.

In his arms, she finally stills. He doesn't know if hours or minutes have passed. But he does not move and holds her to him.

Ohhh, David...

You know - this must be exactly what he did. Grieving with her as if he knew her himself - and yet, keeping quiet and just loving her. This was perfect, honey.

This was well done. I think it's very hard to get into David/Charming, and you do it well.
