Numb3rs Fic: Pulse  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #96 – Heart


Title: Pulse
Pairing/Characters: Don
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: None
Summary: Don knows taking Charlie into the field is risky
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


Chaos.

Gunfire - automatic weapons out of nowhere.

No one wearing Kevlar.

And Charlie...

He knocked Charlie to the pavement, covering his body protectively with his own.

As quickly as it began, the drive-by was over.

Rising up, he froze when he saw Charlie's shirt stained with blood.

As he stared paralyzed in fear, a drop of blood fell onto the shirt from above.

From him.

Then he saw nothing, crashing down as his arms, his body, failed him.

All he could hear was his brother's voice calling his name and the unnaturally loud pulse of his own beating heart.

Confession
I confess I have been absent a lot in the last couple of months.

My apologies for not being able to reply to comments.

Very special thanks to beta melissima for her assistance with this fic.

Thanks,

Emma DeMarais

I never said I was back, sadly. Just popping in for my weekly N100 drabble. Thanks, though...

*hugs* Good to have you back!

And very nice! Tell me this isn't the end?
Cynthia: CD Come Back by blue_eyes_cry1trackmind on March 5th, 2007 07:42 am (UTC)
Or...not so much back, apparently. You're missed!
Emma DeMarais: BlueEyeemmademarais on March 5th, 2007 07:49 am (UTC)
And I miss you and your lovely slash wife and my F-list! /wibble/

Here's hoping exile doesn't last too much longer...

/hugs back/

Nice to see you in my comments!

And very nice! Tell me this isn't the end?

Eep! I hadn't planned on any more. We'll see what the muse has to say about it though.

Glad you liked it...

I hope Don's okay!

I hope your exile doesn't last much longer, too!

Argh! Poor Don! Poor Charlie! And I have some inane pop lyric going through my head about wanting you back for good. I miss you :hugs:
Emma DeMarais: BlueEyeemmademarais on March 5th, 2007 08:50 am (UTC)
Aww... Thanks. You're so sweet. Which song? The Breakfast Club popped into my head when I read this, but I doubt that's it since it's not exactly the same thing.
andiadmiralandrea on March 5th, 2007 08:55 am (UTC)
I think the song is Take That. Which really is so very lame!

*found the Emma!fic*

Okay, wow, you were right. Not so much nicer in your heart drabble either. Kinda sad that both of us said, "Oh, heart, let's kill somebody!!"

But, I loved this. So amazing!

Also, DON, EEEEEEEE BE OK!?!

(I am slightly excitable today.)
