    Smith smiles for just a second. “Also, it’s just Erwin. They tell me you go by just Levi?”

    Levi takes his hand back and hesitates. “Right.”

    And it all goes wrong.

    Summary

    "Think you can give a dying man a bit of a show?" You ignore the gleeful skip your heart gives and try to compose yourself as you kneel down and open the bag you had slung over your shoulder. You take out your favorite puppet, one you've named Little Calvin; Lil' Cal for short. His round blue eyes stare the young man in the face and limbs dangle so far the leather shoes get scuffed in the dirt. "Jesus Almighty, that's terrifying."
    "He ain't hostile." You pick up one of Lil' Cal's arms and hold out his hand towards him. In your altered voice and mastered way of keeping your mouth shut, you speak for your doll. "Nice to meet you, Mister Strider. My name's Calvin, but you can call me Cal."
    He takes the puppet's hand and gives it a shake. "Nice t' meet you. Name's Dave."
