Thanks to Vicky, who helped inspire this drabble but will also be there with me tonight. For Eric.
He loves her in unguarded moments.
When they're tired from the fight, when his bones are actually aching, when she smiles at a new discovery or something he says, when she uses fifteen words instead of easily using one, when she's lying next to him in the infirmary after another close brush, when she's so fascinated with her work that she doesn't even notice him watching her; pushing a short yet unruly strand of hair behind her ear with slender, capable fingers.
When he forgets - just for a moment - that he's not allowed to love her...
That's when he does.
