Running away from a protest wasn’t something Jehan was used to doing. They had seen the inside of a holding cell more often than most of rest of the ABC- Enjolras probably had a longer record, maybe Bahorel but for reasons other than disorderly conduct. But this time, they were running, far and fast, and they could still hear people behind them.
Every time their feet hit the pavement, their bruised (maybe broken) rib jarred in their side. Breathing hurt. They could feel themself slowing, which sparked a panic in their chest.
They’re going to catch me, what if they catch me?
An arm shot out from a doorway, and Jehan didn’t have time to dodge around before the hand grabbed hold of their jumper. They would have screamed except that hand’s twin clapped over their mouth the moment they were close enough. This stranger pulled them through the doorway and into the dark. They squeezed their eyes shut, their whole body tense, and waited for the pain to start.
Instead, whoever it was held them firmly for a long moment. No additional sign of aggression, no move to hurt them, just strong arms and steady breathing. Jehan dared to crack an eye open but could only see the shadowed walls of a room in an uninhabited building.
“If I let you go,” the stranger whispered, just above their ear, “you have to promise not to scream, alright?”
Jehan nodded, and the tight grip around them finally slacked. They wriggled away quickly- and that didn’t do their side any favors- and pressed their back against the wall to look this oddly helpful person over. He was intimidating, all dressed in black, tall and more than handsome. Not a face they would likely forget soon.
The silent scrutinizing evidently got to him after a long moment. “You can trust me,” he offered, though he sounded like he only half believed it himself.
“I don’t know you,” Jehan murmured, wary. “Why would you help me?”
The man shrugged. “You were running from the cops, right? Consider me a friend.”
“Are you the kind of friend I really want to have?”
“I’m the kind of friend you needed. Running isn’t good for that side you’re holding; believe me, I’ve done that with an actually broken rib. Not fun.”
Jehan slowly took their hand away from their side, frowning. He spoke well but vaguely. Odd. Paired with that beautiful face, it only added to the mystery.
“Can I get a name for you, or should I just call you my mysterious savior?”
“As long as you don’t go spreading it around that I helped you out.”
Jehan smiled a little. “Cross my heart.”
Jehan blinked, confused. “Are you sure?”
Montparnasse frowned, and he even managed to do that beautifully. “Of course I’m sure. Why, what have you heard?”
“N-not much, I just… From the rumors, I thought ‘Montparnasse’ would be… older.”
