Lyra's POV

We eventually made it out of the cave and to a hospital. The doctors said it was a miracle that he even survived! He lost over two litres of blood! That's a lot of blood…

I sighed while watching him sleep. It was adorable, really. He looked peaceful except when he moved and twitched in his sleep (must be dreaming, I concluded). I watched the rhythmic breathing and listened to the rhythmic beeping of the machines. I leaned over and kissed him on the cheek, causing him to wake up. I giggled slightly.

"Hello, sweetie," I said. "You got a blood transfusion."

"I-I did?"

"Yep." I grinned.
