“No one’s happy about you, Bunny,” Jack said.
In what he supposed was a one-time only thing, she let both the sarcasm and the nickname pass. “How’s your forehead?” she asked quietly.
“What? Oh.” Peeling the washcloth away, he poked at it with his fingers, trying to assess the damage.
Amara jerked his hand away and scowled. “Brilliant. Be sure to infect it with as many germs as possible, genius.”
He laughed, which was proof positive that this whole adventure had rendered him insane. Actually cracked his lips open in a smile and let it play out to its natural conclusion, which was laughter.

Don’t get too close, man.
He turned away on the pretext of grabbing his bag from the floor, slinging it onto the dresser near the TV and rummaging around for some fresh clothes. With tremendous effort, he focused on the hot shower he was about to take and tried not to feel her silent presence behind him.
