    Summary

    This wasn’t for Jesse, or at least not primarily for him, and Gabriel tried not to feel shitty about it— about needing Jesse to do exactly as he said, exactly when he said it.

    Needing Jesse on his knees for a while to keep himself from shaking.

    Jesse obeyed without hesitation, peeling his shirt over his head and kicking off his boots, but he hadn’t finished shucking his pants before Gabriel had a fist in his hair. He wrenched his head back, urging Jesse to arch his spine as he struggled to wiggle out of his clothes, uniform kicked into a messy pile. There were bruises blossoming across Jesse’s ribs on one side, red darkening into violet where he’d taken some kind of hit. His bottom lip was split, and there was a cut across his nose. Tiny, faded like the graze on his cheek, but Gabriel could already tell it might not ever fully go away.

    More scars, like Jesse hadn’t had enough in the first place, but at least the old ones weren’t his fault.

    These new wounds were all for Gabriel.

    Summary

    People had been leaving Jesse behind his entire life, but never like this. No one had ever died for him before. So he’d sleepwalk through his nights, stumbling around the dark of the base, everything hazy and unreal. During the day he lay on the floor, hands shaking, eyes dry. Time was meaningless, everything blurring together, grief blooming just underneath his skin ready to flower into something dark and toxic.

    Then Reyes came in, vivid like a fever dream, and picked Jesse up. Kissed his hair, carried him to bed. To Reyes’ bed, and he pulled Jesse into his chest, tucking his face against it.

    “It’s okay. I got you, Jesse. I got you.”

    There was no fighting it after that.

    He’d been taught to hold out against the pain until his commander came for him. With Reyes keeping him safe, keeping him warm, he let it all go.

    Jesse cried until he hurt all over. Until the agony was something tangible, something real. He fell asleep in his clothes, eyes swollen and face red, with Gabriel holding him tight.

    Not safe, not entirely, but as close as he was getting. The nightmares didn’t come, and that was enough.

    Summary

    So now, he sits in Gabriel’s room, in Gabriel’s desk chair, smoking one of Gabriel’s cigarettes - some horrible kind of irony.

    [Jesse isn't happy with Gabriel's decisions in Venice. He lets him know.]
