Paradigms and Heart Beats (#51 Shift)
On the list of things Colby never wanted to see was Charlie in a hospital bed having been hit by a truck.
On the list of things he never expected to see, in any reality and was forcing a bit of a paradigm shift was Ian Edgerton, curled up next to Charlie, trembling, his ear pressed to Charlie’s chest.
“Just keep listening.” Charlie whispered. “That’s me. That’s beating for you. I do not care how long I have to live, how hard I have to fight, I am never leaving you. Ever.”
