He could tell that the female was obviously upset and something had happened to her. Drew was not good at emotions, and he was not good at anything pertaining to feeling things, but he wanted to help, and he wanted to be there for the girl who had the sniffles coming out of her within moments of seeing him. "Okay Libby Hart...let's figure this out." He said, his hues looking at the female as he pursed his lips. He knew that some people had been killed at the scene, but she seemed to have minimal wounds.
That was good, right? He looked at her and pulled her up by her hand, holding onto it so that she didn't feel like she was alone. "Can you tell me what happened here? You seem to have minimal injuries, and I know some others weren't as lucky." He said, his eyes narrowing at the simple thought of somebody losing their lives to a shooter. He didn't know what to say, he didn't even know what to think, but he knew that he had to keep everything to himself when it came to what was going through his mind.
This was a horrible crime, and sometimes, these things happened; but he didn't want Libby to be alone right now, and that was something that he refused to let happen. He looked at her and sighed, pulling her off to the side. He knew that she would be more willing to talk if they would be alone and people weren't passing through every few moments. "I know something horrible happened here, but I obviously wasn't here to see it..." He said, his voice trailing off as he looked at her.
Drew wasn't good with words, but he had a feeling that he didn't need to be when it came to something like this. This was horrible, and there was blood everywhere; some people had died already, some people were struggling to stay alive. Drew hated thinking about the thought of it all. However, he knew that he had to push his thoughts aside and be there for Libby, something that was way more important right now.
It had come to him through his car radio, and Drew wasted no time getting there. A shooting at a library in New York. The male knew that he had to push his car to the limit to get there and make sure that nobody got hurt in tow, however, he was worried about the fact that this had been a shooting; moreso if there had been any survivors. Drew dealt with things like this everyday, but he didn't like the idea of something happening like this in a place like a library, especially when it was a place that people went for refuge just to read.
He got there and he stopped his car, and he walked inside. The UNSUB had taken his own life, and Drew felt like he was dealing with something horrible, which he was. Walking inside, there was blood on the floor, blood on the walls, blood everywhere. He didn't know what to think. When he found himself face to face with one of the victims; he found himself even more torn up, because he could see how scared she happened to be, and that was something that shook him to his core.
"Come with me. We'll get you cleaned up, and you can tell me what you remember and what you've seen. Do you mind telling me your name?" Drew said, his hues looking at the female. "My name is Drew, Drew Decker. I'm a Detective." He said softly, his hues looking at the female as he led her away from the crime scene, something that should have been done already. He wasn't good with emotions, but he was going to make sure that she was taken care of, because this was a horribly scary scene.
There were a few more clicks of a mouse before Wren was pleased enough to push her laptop away from her for a second. Stretching her arms over her head, she could hardly suppress the yawn threatening its presence. It was only late afternoon, but Wren felt like a semi-truck run her down. Last night was a bad one. She even surprised herself when she woke in a cold sweat, her blankets kicked to the floor. Rolling her head from her left shoulder to her right, she tried to ease the tension that had left her body tight and sore.
Wren stared at the screen ahead of her. It was a stunning portrait of a family of four. She intricately went through and ensured the littles had beaming smiles and no blinks had been captured. The hardest part of Wren's job was editing the photos to perfection. She'd spend hours ensuring she had the perfect shot to present to her clients. It was mentally draining, but she was thankful for places like Shakespeare and Co. that have become almost a second home for her. She'd never get anything done while stuck in her studio.
Reaching for the cardboard cup beside her laptop, a frown pulled on her lips when she realized it was empty. Wren still had two more photos from this session to edit, and there was no way she would do anything else without a drop of caffeine. Standing from the chair she had chosen to work in, the dirty blonde walked to the front of the little coffee shop. It was quiet but had a steady flow of foot traffic. There was always just enough light for Wren to work without feeling like she was being blinded.
Wren had spent several hours in the little corner by the window over the past few weeks. The drinks were excellent, and the staff were always so kind to her. Walking up to the counter to order another drink, Wren smiled at the woman across from her. "Me again." she laughed at herself for a moment before she continued, "Can I get a hot chai latte with oat milk, please?" It was Wren's favorite drink; it always felt like she was drinking a warm hug, and she needed it with the chilly days lately. After placing her order, she covered her mouth as her yawn finally escaped. "Ope, sorry. I guess I didn't sleep well.. or at all.. last night."
