    Summary

    “And what do you want in return?  Your freedom? Your safety?”

    Jaskier didn’t flinch from her scorn and Geralt could see his knuckles go white with the force of his grip around the small vial.  “Save him.”

    The mage stared at him for a beat before letting out a burst of laughter that echoed off the wall like the flutter of vultures wings.  “All this trouble for the Witcher?” she asked incredulously, “Tell me, boy, do you really think he would do the same for you? That he cares at all what happens to the bard who follows after him like a lost puppy?”  She stepped forward, confident as a soldier preparing his death blow. “Oh, I know who you are, bard. I watched you trailing after the Witcher, eager for every scrap of affection or interest he’ll toss your way. I’ve seen the way you look at him.”

    Jaskier was breathing heavily now, jaw clenched tight enough that Geralt could see the muscles fluttering with effort.

    “Were you hoping this ill-conceived rescue mission would be enough to make him finally notice you?” she murmured with a mocking smile, “Poor little bard--always singing of love but never truly experiencing it.”

    Summary

    It began with the baths. 

    It had been so easy to dismiss at first. Some attempted to win him over with kindness-with-a-catch when in need of something, a bed for the night, a pouch of coin, a good drink to lower the cost. 

    Jaskier likes to take care of Geralt. Geralt very quickly takes notice.

    Summary

    5.) Jaskier is not violent, as a general rule. He could be, but he isn’t. The feeling of a fight- straining muscles, blooming pain, like fucking but far worse- is something he’d rather leave to someone else. 

    But.

    6.) There will be tales told a thousand years in the future about a Witcher and his bodyguard the bard.

    Summary

    Jaskier had never expected it would be Geralt trying to kill him. Sure, the witcher liked to threaten as much, but they both knew he'd never make good on it. They were friends, whatever Geralt said.

    But friends didn't try to rip each other's throats out with their teeth.

    Or, Geralt returns from a hunt acting strange.

    Summary

    After Geralt blames Jaskier for everything, the bard leaves. He will not cry, he will not break down. He's much more than Geralt's useless companion and he will not let the Witcher ruin him. It's a stroke of luck that he meets another Witcher in Oxenfurt, and finally finds out what's it like to be openly called a friend.
    Then, they decide to spend winter in Kaer Morhen, and Coën isn't the only Witcher who goes there.
    It may be Geralt's only chance to apologize to his bard, his friend, his everything. 13 years is a long time to ponder one's mistakes and now, Geralt is desperate to fix what he broke.
