Do No Harm

Chapter Three

The soft, reassuring sounds of Abel's machines, of Jax's breathing, filled her ears; her eyes, lids heavy, watched the chests – one so small and vulnerable, one so capable – of both Teller boys as they slept on peacefully before her, Jax's respirations instinctively timed to match those of his son's. Tara should have been asleep, too. She was tired. She had rounds in the morning; she was running out of clean clothes, so she'd have to make a trip back to her room at the inn; and she had long ago learned to enjoy the moments of pure calm. They didn't happen very often – even in a town as small as Charming.

But Tara had been wrong. Perhaps she didn't have as many cases, but they were just as important, just as intense, and just as all-consuming.
