As long as you keep getting born, it's alright to die some times. ~Orson Scott Card

'I can't believe that you did that,' Halt muttered. Will grinned up at him from where he was lying down.

'Did I have a choice?' Will asked him.

'Yes! I could have done it!' Halt protested.

'And gotten recognised, captured and then killed?' Will replied with one eyebrow raised. As much as he wanted to deny it, Will had been right.

'But you almost died!' he said, trying to change the topic.

'But I'm still alive so that's ok,' Will replied and grinned at the annoyed look on Halt's face.

'If you die, I am never talking to you again!' he said and the started to walk out of the tent that Will was trapped in.

'Wait, Halt!'

'Yes, Will?'

'I'm sorry...'

Halt smiled in victory.

'…for saving your life.'
