‘I almost lost you’
The signs are followed by an uncharacteristic hug, and Danny can feel hands gripping the back of his suit. He’s shaking, so is Ninja Brian.
“I’m… I’m so fucking sorry.” Danny wraps his arms around Ninja Brian, still in shock.
They’d been fighting some super monster, no big deal. But Danny had gotten distracted. He’d managed to get himself flung across the city, crashing into a building. He was immortal, but like a lobster. He could take a beating, but he could be killed.
He’d live forever if he wasn’t killed. But he’d almost died, breaking a few bones and bleeding a lot. Brian had finished off the super monster and was by Danny’s side faster than he’d thought possible.
Brian’s face is pressed into Danny’s neck, his breathing too quick. He thought he’d lost Danny. The one person he’d ever loved or trusted. He felt Danny’s large hand on the back of his head, reassuring him.
Tears were in both their eyes, on their knees in the rough rubble. But that didn’t matter. It didn’t matter where they were.
They were both alive, they were both going to be okay. That’s what Brian kept telling himself as he carried Danny home. That’s what Brian kept telling himself as he helped Danny undress and cleaned his wounds.
That’s what Brian finally believed when he had Danny wrapped in his arms in bed, Danny quietly rambling on about something and Brian just falling in love more. Because they were both safe and okay.
