SUB-GENRE: Established Relationship
SUMMARY: Jethro has a nightmare. For Anita (toomuchfandom), as it was inspired by her icon.
DISCLAIMER: I don't own these characters, nor am I making any money from them. I merely borrow them from time to time.
"No!" Shouting, Jethro awoke.
His breathing was loud, fast, heavy.
Frantically he looked around. Blinking as the sunrise infiltrated the curtains.
"Jethro?" A voice.
A hand, steady, warm, comforting, gentle, touched him.
Confused he looked down. "Duck?"
"Of course, dearest. Who were you expecting?"
"I . . . Must have been . . ."
"Having a nightmare." Despite the warmth, Jethro shuddered. "It was Jenn. She'd just woken me up again. She . . ."
"Hush, dear. It's all right. Jennifer will never bother you again." Ducky smiled and tugged Jethro back into his arms.
With the sunlight touching him, Jethro sank back into sleep. Safe. Secure. Loved.
This is the icon which inspired this offering.
