    Summary

    James' placid boredom is souring quickly into resentment. He feels restless. He also feels inclined to have a bit of a pout. He gets up, leaving his phone on the desk, and heads down the corridor for a consolatory cup of tea. He wonders if there’s any of that hot chocolate mix left, the posh stuff with chilli in; he deserves a posh hot chocolate right about now. And maybe by the time he gets back some miracle will have transpired—Henrietta will have decided that Dundy is, in fact, a little too related to her for her liking, and she’ll un-invite him from Christmas, and James’ phone will blow up with Dundy’s pleas for him to take him back. Or maybe, somehow, the universe will magically manifest someone whom James can take to Rose Hill instead—but who else? What other sad sack could possibly not already have plans for Christmas?

    Summary

    Before the rescue, and before James’s body had begun to break down in earnest, he’d started to find the nighttime cold on the shale unbearable. He’d shiver for hours before passing out from exhaustion—excruciating, when every movement caused him a spark of pain. One night the cold was particularly sharp—the flaps of their tent snapped loud as thunderclaps in the unforgiving wind—and he’d been shocked to feel his cot dip behind him, Francis’s solid form pressing up against his back. 

    “Francis,” he’d said, heart pounding, “what are you doing?”

    “Whisht,” Francis had hissed. “Can’t sleep for the chattering of your teeth. Now rest.”

    Summary

    They fucked on the wooden slatted floor, heedless of the splinters and grime. Everything was grimy, everywhere dirt and blood and shards of bone. They were lucky to have a floor; lucky to have a roof over their heads and a piece of wood that could be feasibly called a door, that would keep the creatures out.

     

     

    They had found this place at sundown, at long last, both of them grateful beyond measure that they would be able to rest a whole night. That they could both sleep.

     

    Francis Crozier is on a fool's errand; one last promise to the woman he loved - James Fitzjames is along for the ride, for the adventure, for Francis, but as they ride through the wild west they both get a little more than they bargained for...
