    Summary

    She meets him in a battlefield hospital, suffering from shell shock. He returns to the front, and she doubts she'll see him again. Eight months later, and he is writing letters as part of his treatment from a recovery hospital in Surrey. His doctor Thomas Hiddleston, is an Ex-Field Surgeon, who just so happens to recognise the description of the field nurse Private Cumberbatch is writing to. The rest, as they say, is history.
    History, Sealed With A Loving Kiss.

    -

    “Private?!” I said softly, kneeling by his side, “Private Cumberbatch.” At the sharpness in my tone, his hand clutched at the sheet beside my own, and I sighed, taking his long fingers between mine. "Benedict, can you hear me?"
    His fingers clasped around mine and his keening subsided a little way.
    "Please... Make it-make it stop."
