Harry and A.J bonding moment. Potentially last chapter.
Harry stopped A.J before they entered their different shuttles.
"How are you feeling?"
"Err...Good you know, I mean, considering I've never been this scared in my entire life, you know..." He trailed off, when he realised he wasn't going to be able to form a coherent sentence.
"Listen, once you get up there, you're going to be on your own...If anything should happen, I just wanted to..."
Wait...was this Harry looking out for him?
A.J responded in the only way he knew how with this man. "I know Harry, I'll uhh, try not to disappoint you." He grinned crookedly and began to walk away.
He turned back round though when he heard Harry call "Take care of yourself, kid!"
A sense of pleasure rippled through him when he caught Harry's smile.
Harry was smiling...at him.
Oh my god, he's smiling at me!
A.J realised he sounded like a love struck teenager, but for the first time in what seemed like forever, Harry wasn't frowning, glaring or shouting at him.
It took an 'end-of-the-world' crisis for this to happen?
They should be on the brink of death more often!
Please review :)
