Author and notes: An answer to Challenge #8. Movieverse, based on that odd little pause in their discussion after the battle. Stephen's POV.
It was such a little thing, not half the length of a finger, but blood covered it.
It was hardly the first of his blood I had seen. Of all his injuries, this was perhaps the least, certainly less than others I had treated today. But I could not help but think of chance. What if it had been a little larger, or struck a little harder. I could not help imagining his face replacing those whose eyes I’d closed.
I offered it to him, wondering what would have become of me then.
He took it, eyes reflecting my question.
