E/O Challenge: Bonfire. 'Prayer for Better Times' a cathartic 100 word drabble. Because we still love those who leave us and everyone deserves a happy ending. Spoilers for S07E02 Hello, Cruel World.


In memory of Nic, praying you're in the arms of angels and found the peace you were searching for...

He smiled as the man with the wild hair and impossibly blue eyes appeared by his side, took his hand and led him back to the car and a better future.
