Whumptober Day Twelve - "Don't Move"
“I wanna go home,” she says. It’s not the first time she’s asked for it, but Peter can’t give her anything.
“I know, honey, I know. I promise Dad’s going to find us, okay? We just have to be patient,” Peter tells her, hating the tears that spring to her eyes and her little fists curling into his t-shirt.
She nods, resting her cheek against his chest, curling up tightly against him.
The guilt washes over him for what feels like the thousandth time, feeling her shiver against him and a wet patch bloom on his t-shirt from her tears. He doesn’t know what to do.
