Hawke shifted uncomfortably on his bedroll and Anders, whose arms had been wrapped around his shoulder, tightened his grip and pressed his forehead harder against Hawke’s chest with a frown and some mumbled incomprehensible words that sounded vaguely like begging. “Shhhh, it’s okay, I’m not going anywhere.

Being soaking wet on top of everything else would have made trying to sleep ever so much more miserable.
