Current Mood:happyhappy
Title: At Fault
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 100
Pairings or characters involved: Stephen and Jack
Rum to: Mr Pullings
Notes: For Challenge #20 #1. I’m just reading Post Captain. Set in Stephen’s castle, after they cross France. Stephen’s POV.


Jack had never been a remarkable rider, one way or the other. In the past, he had made up in enthusiasm what he may have lacked in skill.

But that energy was gone now, along with a good six stone. What had not been spent in our trek had burned away in fever.

He had trusted me to guide him to safety, would have followed me until his great heart gave out, as it very nearly had.

Now he slid gracelessly from the horse, breathing hard after a half-circuit of the field.

I turned away, unable to watch any longer.

That is... very intense. And how like Stephen to turn it so!
