The One Day

Work Text:

Allen Frances Doyle was no hero. As a matter of fact he was as far removed from a hero as one could possibly get. And he knew it; the whole world knew it.

Over the years he’d had plenty of chances to change that but despite a big part of him wanting to be the hero who saves the day; the cowardly part of him was stronger. His survival instinct always insisted on saving himself.

But there came a time when he could no longer put himself first.

Doyle knew he wasn’t a hero.

Until the one day he was.
