Numb3rs Fic: A Secret Fear  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #357 - Scare

Title: A Secret Fear
Pairing/Characters: Charlie
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Pilot
Summary: Charlie worries about a lot of things yet has but one secret fear
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Lots of things worry Charlie.

The dangers of Don's job.

His father's age and health.

The demands of his career.

A Wife. Children. Responsibility.

All of these things, alone or collectively, give him a moment's pause and steal sleep from his ever busy mind.

But only one thing truly scares him and there are two sides to that coin to fear.

Charlie lives with a secret fear that one day he will wake up and the numbers that make him special will be gone.

His only deeper fear is that they'll never leave and he'll go mad in the end.

I've got a little one, practically a drabble, where Charlie ends up completely insane. http://ladygray99.livejournal.com/4432.html It's the second one down.

Oh Charlie. I truly believe this peek at the inside of his curly head.

This really feels like a fear Charlie would have. Trapped, trying to find a balance between too much math and too little.
