Jaskier hopped down from the table he had been standing on, and wound his way quickly through the crowd to Geralt’s side, smiling up at him big and bright and like nothing had ever happened.
Geralt remembered the last words he’d exchanged with the bard, tone cruel and desperate and bitter. He could see Jaskier’s face as he said them. That feeling in his chest tightened and twisted and writhed uncomfortably.
I've seen so many angsty takes on Geralt and Jaskier navigating their fight on the mountain, but I really wanted to come at that idea from a different angle. So, Geralt feels super bad about everything he said on the mountain and is EXPECTING a huge blowup from Jaskier, but then Jaskier just forgives and forgets like it's nothing and they're travelling together again like usual and why does Geralt still feel kinda shitty about all this?
Basically, Geralt learns about feeling guilty, and how sometimes apologies are as much for yourself as they are the other person.
